Is Ex-Gay Therapy Sexually Abusive?

The filmmaker, Tom Murray, just put up a clip from his film Fish Can't Fly. In it Dr. Joe Kort talks about ex-gay therapy and how he sees it as a form of sexual abuse.
The harmful effects of reparative therapy are they mirror what happens to someone who's been sexually abused. If you take someone who's been sexually abused that what happens to them is that they have been dominated as a child by another, an adult's sexuality. What the message they're given is "You don't matter. My sexuality is superior."
Hear more for yourself.

I remember that part from the film. And I completely agree with every statement Dr. Kort makes. Thank you for posting that on here, Peterson. It's important for people to see that.

Ex-gay programs certainly can become abusive in a variety of ways. In my experience regarding the sexual component is that the ex-gay program actually heightened my gay desires and taught me how to more easily fulfill those desires. Is that sex abuse? Additionally, the required psychotherapy did in fact become abusive in the sense of manipulative mind control.
