Do you believe that 'ex-gay therapy' works?


I'm asking this from a neutal POV. I would like to know what you think, and why. I will not be trying to convince you otherwise from your thoughts on it (nor should anyone else). Why do you think it works/doesn't work? What therapies have you heard of? Have you experienced any, or know of people who have. Did it work? Did it not work? What are your thoughts on why or why not? This has been asked in 2 different areas to get a cross section - you may answer twice. Anyone who has been through this - if it causes you offense or triggers - I am sincerely sorry.

    NO ONE---read NO ONE is "seduced" into any lifestyle. ALL human sexuality is a function of a complex set of genetic, hormonal, and biological variables.

    Homosexuality is not "habit". It is not the result of childhood sexual abuse.

    Thanks for your answer Mbuggieh. The question stems from a program I watched yesterday. I have my own opinion on whether they work or not, but wanted to see what others thought. Thanks for answering
