One comment on “Gays and Mormons and Electroshock Aversion Therapy at BYU

  1. I liked the important discovery you cited about gay men being attracted to clothed men. I think the notion that it was novel at the time (and still could be novel, depending on your audience, I guess) is indicative of the attitude many people have when considering the state in which gay men and women exist: they don’t consider the idea that gay men and women are anything other than completely sexual beings. They don’t consider the idea that gay men and women are interested in socio-emotional connections. They don’t consider the idea that gay men and women are interested in more than genitilia.

    I really like one of your ending limitation-sightings—the fact that the moral issue the investigator was worried about was whether it was morally acceptable to show nude images, but not about whether it was morally acceptable to shock human beings. It’s…funny? I don’t know the word to use.
