CUPERTINO, CA, December 16, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – “If you’re gay and new to an area, how do you find out where gay people hang out?”  That, according to the creators of a newly-approved app for Apple’s iOS-based phones and tablets, is the “overly simplistic description” of the “problem” they sought to solve with Distinc.tt – billed as “the only gay social app approved by the iTunes store for 12-year-olds and older.”

Surgical Sex

The author concludes this article as follows:
I have witnessed a great deal of damage from sex-reassignment. The children transformed from their male constitution into female roles suffered prolonged distress and misery as they sensed their natural attitudes. Their parents usually lived with guilt over their decisions—second-guessing themselves and somewhat ashamed of the fabrication, both surgical and social, they had imposed on their sons. As for the adults who came to us claiming to have discovered their “true” sexual identity and to have heard about sex-change operations, we psychiatrists have been distracted from studying the causes and natures of their mental misdirections by preparing them for surgery and for a life in the other sex. We have wasted scientific and technical resources and damaged our professional credibility by collaborating with madness rather than trying to study, cure, and ultimately prevent it.

“I was relieved of my position because I don’t agree with my commander’s position on gay marriage,” he told me. “We’ve been told that if you publicly say that homosexuality is wrong, you are in violation of Air Force policy.” . . . .
