breaking bad

Fixed and mutable

A long discussion on metafilter about this web log of a gay man who is struggling to change into a heterosexual man because of his religious beliefs. It seems to me that the blog is a fake, designed to dramatise the issue, and perhaps make people question their rigid religious stance, like a double bluff. But I could be wrong.

To me, pressurising someone in this way is abhorrent. Saying a consensual sexual choice is wrong seems destructive. We need more loving relationships in the world, not fewer.
