How not to cure homosexuality

Here's a weird story from Australia:

During a family barbecue around Christmas time in 2007, the dad allegedly phoned a prostitute and arranged to meet her at a motel on Yaamba Road, North Rockhampton.

The father drove his son to the motel and paid the prostitute in $50 notes.

The prostitute took the boy into a motel room while the father waited on a balcony.

The dad walked in and out of the room to check on his son and told him he wanted to see a used condom as proof that they'd had sex. After the boy and the prostitute had finished the dad took his son home.

Sadly, this isn't the first dad who thought he could turn his son straight with a nice romp in the sack with a woman, paid or unpaid. If you just try it, you might like it. How can you know you're gay if you've never had sex with a woman? The sexual restraint/morality argument against homosexuality is sometimes easily thrown out the window when someone thinks that a little heterosex will cure someone of the homosex bug.

Of course, we have no idea if the kid here is gay. Just because his father, who clearly lacks judgment, thinks his son is gay doesn't make him gay. But this detail from the story stands out:

Police first became aware of the alleged rape when the father phoned the Child Protection Investigation Unit on May 5, 2008.

Detective Sergeant Christine Knapp answered the phone call, during which the father allegedly accused police of not acting on suspicions that his 14-year-old son was "abusing" his younger brother.

The dad allegedly told police he had "tried to sort it out himself by taking (his son) to a prostitute".

Even though it's something we never talk about in the US (I'm guessing Australia is the same way), many kids and young adolescents experiment sexually with their siblings and they turn out just fine. Sure, it's not pleasant for the parents to know about, but I wouldn't file it under "scarred for life."

Being forced by your father to fuck someone while he waits for evidence, on the other hand....

This is fairly benign as far as being a manifestation of the idea that "good straight sex can cure homosexuality"

In it's extreme form, it leads to rape gangs in South Africa and in California, "curing" Lesbians through rape-torture

By the father's (and many, many other's) reasoning, a good romp in the hay with someone of the same gender would "cure" heterosexuality.

That's how it worked for me! I slept with a girl before a guy. Cured me. :)

The world is full of controversies such as: unemployment, best mortgage rates, foreclosure, healthcare, climate change as well as homosexuality. Issues regarding homosexual is absolutely becoming a big problem to the majority. Thus, in my opinion the only cure to this is strong will to choose only between two genders. Moreover, forceful actions such as the above mentioned could lead to a further rebellion from a child.

Having sex does not make you gay or straight and the father needs to be charged with sexual child abuse for making the boy have sex.
