MD High School Distributes Ex-Gay Therapy Flyer to Students
The group responsible for the flyer is called PFOX, short for Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays. You probably don’t need reminding, but Ex-Gay Therapy has been universally debunked by every single major medical, psychological, and psychiatric organization in the country. Ex-Gay Therapy is a fraudulent, unscientific practice which has been proven to do more psychological harm than help to LGBT participants.
Montgomery Public School District is defending its decision to distribute the quack medicine flyer, saying in part, “The board of education policy allows materials and announcements from non-profit community organizations to be distributed at four designated times during the school year,” as long as those non-profits meet certain criteria.
No word on how exactly a “therapeutic” practice promoting self-hatred was able to meet the school’s criteria. Perhaps a rethinking of said criteria is in urgent order?
What do you think of the school’s total non-apology?
