Sissy Boy Syndrome

Can you believe that is what a psychologist called the "disorder" that he "treated" through a government funded program in the 1970's?  It sounds more like something we would accuse your friends of being afflicted with when they are the first ones to leave the bar.

He believed he could cure young boys of gayness.  He instructed the boy's family featured in this video to ignore him every time he did anything deemed effeminate.  Well, he isn't gay anymore.  He's dead.  A lot of people call this treatment child abuse, and I tend to agree. 

What a messed up concept it is thinking you can turn people straight.  I believe you're just born one way or another.  I say this because I have met plenty of obviously gay 1st graders over the years.  And they were all great kids just the way they are: nothing needs "fixing."

Get a look at this video if you have a second. 

And try not to accuse your buddies of having Sissy Boy Syndrome because that's just rude and offensive.  Funny, yes, but out of line . . .

Is it acceptable to accuse my buddies of having Horsey Boy Syndrome?

I hate it when the word "sissy" is used to "mean" gay, because it prevents it from being used as a mocking insult. Muhammad Ali called George Foreman "a sissy and a mummy" before the Rumble in the Jungle, and George is not gay.

Ugh. That's right - GOD FORBID the kid just be happy and who he is. Let's shame the gay out of him.
Sick. So fucking sad.

Michael: Sure. What's it mean? They're hung like horses? I doubt they'd be mad about being accused of that.

Gorilla: Nor is George a mummy. At least not yet. Brendan Frasier may run up against zombie George Foreman some day . . .

Sybil: Right! Messing with their heads is sick.

That is so sad! How in the world did that son of a gun think he can cure gayness. What is there to cure in the first place! Such a shame. poor little kid.
There are still a lot of people who think being gay is a disease you know? People like that make me feel disgusted.
But sissy boy syndrome is a pretty funny name. LOL.
