Last night on “AC360º“, Anderson Cooper learned about a shocking “experimental therapy” that was designed to make feminine boys (which they referred to as having”Sissy Boy Syndrome”) more masculine. Specifically, we were told the story of a boy named Kirk Andrew Murphy. His family said that his feminine behavior left him feeling different from everyone else. When his mother saw something on television about an “experimental therapy” taking place at UCLA that was designed to reverse these “exaggerated feminine behaviors”, she made the phone call that would change everything (but now how she intended).
Murphy went through a very traumatic childhood as a result of the therapy. In the video you’re about to watch, his brother and sister explain how their brother became a completely different person as a result. They are brought to tears as they explain everything they witnessed growing up.
The family decided to speak up now because they recently realized that various published books by George A. Rekers, the man who did the therapy other their brother, stated that the therapy on their brother was a success and that he was no longer feminine as a result. The therapy was in fact far from a success. (Sidenote: You should know that George A. Rekers himself was the center of a gay scandal when he went on a European vacation with an escort from Rentboy.com)
This is just awful. I am so grateful that I didn’t have to go through or witness something like this. I hope more parents start waking up and realizing that being “gay” is not a “syndrome” and it is not something that can be “fixed”. My heart goes out to anyone that has been through something like this. George A. Rekers is a terrible person.
