    “Gay Dating App”

    I’m sure there are people who use it for dating, but I think, broadly speaking, “gay sex app” or “gay hookup app” would be more honest.

    The issue is that he is a douchebag who hurts other people and a hypocrite who tries to profit off his self-hatred. Clearly, he is also a sick puppy.

    A ‘friend’ of mine introduced me to Matt a year or so ago. I think she thought she was doing me a favour by offering up a ‘shining example’ of someone whom God ‘saved from homosexuality’.

    Our initial conversations via FB were polite. I offered my own life example as an aternative to self-deniel and self-loathing. A life of honesty and a stead-fast faith in God as a gay man. The conversation went down-hill quickly.

    Matt, I hope that you learn from this that you are not ‘ex-gay’, nor will you ever be. There is an alternative: to live life honestly, accepting your sexual orientation as a gift, not a curse. Hopefully you come to this liberating awareness before you hurt yourself any further, and others in the process.

    “From my experience in talking now to people who are either confused about their sexuality or repenting of homosexuality, 99.9 percent of the ones that I’ve talked to were sexually violated, molested or exposed to pornography at the young age of four- to seven-years-old,” he said.

    Funny about that. Those of us who are not confused and not repenting dont seem to have had that experience.

    does that tell you anything at all?

    Why do these testimonies so often include periods of promiscuity, drug/alcohol abuse, etc.? It seems so much more probable that these guys generally just have other issues unrelated to their orientation that are the real issue. What a sad man. At least he’s young; maybe he’ll figure out how stupid he’s being.

    The whole time I read this I kept thinking “Where is the ‘Ex-Gay’ part? He’s on Grindr – where one is unlikely to find a gal – and is obsessed with gay porno. Where is the happy hetero part of his newly reformed life? There isn’t one, apparently. He’s a self-hating gay man who has made a career out of parading his self-hatred as a virtue, then blaming Jesus for turning him into such a messed-up geek. In what way has his life improved? Being the poster-child for his whacked ideology may give him a weird, sad sort of celebrity, but if he is still trolling for trade on Grindr, occasionally having gay sex, and regularly over-indulging in porno, he may not be a healthy, happy gay guy, but he’s certainly not ‘Ex-Gay’ or even remotely straight. He’s just fashioned his misery into a sash and tiara.

    “He’s just fashioned his misery into a sash and tiara.”.
