Why is MTV Promoting Ex-Gay Therapy?


MTV recently aired an episode of True Life that focused on ex-gay ministries. The episode, subtitled, “I Want to Be Straight,” highlights the story of two teens as they struggle to change their sexual orientation.

Instead of telling viewers about the dangers of these conversion therapies though, the network turned it into a puff piece that could have been produced by Marcus Bachmann or Focus on the Family.

To make matters worse, they’ve done a follow-up with one of the subjects that’s posted to their blog. Again, it’s like a pitch for kids to find Jeebus and pray away the gay.
