這不禁令我想起二十世紀初美國冷泉港實驗室(Cold Sping Harbor Laboratory)曾經是優生學(Eugenics)的重鎮。優生學是甚麼，想想第二次世界大戰的希特勒和猶太人吧。從優生學到國際一流的生物、醫學實驗室是180度的大轉變。終有一天這些無聊的治療會被廢止，但先必在別的“前衛”社會面前貽笑大方而後榮。唉，這些搞治療的“專家”真羞家！也許這些專家們應先向香港小童群益會取經。
If you need another reason why Hong Kong is not quite an international city, all it takes is a workshop by a counselor with "ex-gay" connection with Exodus International delivering training to in-service and future counselors on the "crisis" of being gay. The sponsor of this workshop, Asian Professional Counselling Association (APCA), has a mission:
to be the leading professional body for counselling in Hong Kong and to be recognized by the public and the government as the definitive association for counsellors practicing in Hong Kong and the Asia Pacific Region.
When country after country are legalising same-sex marriage, and, the social justice movement of LGBT people has been returning the spotlight to the INjustice still plaguing transgender, transvestites, gender non-conforming or the pansexual members of the community, APCA is on the path to raise Hong Kong's status as a laughing-stock for other progressive societies.
Given enough time, these kind of radiculous therapies will be obsolete. My worry is that they will be around to "harm" another generation of LGBTs and counselors as well before subsiding. My 2 cents to the "professionals" - read up on Michel Foucault's Histoire de la sexualité or the cultural construct nature of gender before dispensing nocive advices please! Perhaps it's the APCA and company whom need to be str8en out.
