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 . . .
