Ode to the Over-Educated

Never talk religion, politics or sex. Isn't that what they used to say? Well, guess what? That just flew out the window on a three-fer.

I don't know how long that link will be good, so here's the upshot of it. After an extensive study, the American Psychological Association has declared that mental health professionals should not tell gay clients that they can become straight through the use of therapy or other treatments. Therapy can still be helpful, same as for anyone of straight sexual orientation with issues, and should be a positive experience for the patient.

I suppose I'm a little appalled that in 2009 we really needed a study and a declaration to help mental health professionals come to that conclusion.
