"Exgays are as rare as dodo birds" Providing proof that Wayne Besen is a liar.
“There was never going to be an actual ‘Ex-gay Pride Month’ because ex-gays are as rare as the Dodo bird,” said Truth Wins Out’s Executive Director Wayne Besen. [link to comment]
On July 15, the director of Truth Wins Out made a stunning assertion that exgays are “as rare as the Dodo bird”. His comment was intended to underscore an often repeated claim that “real” former homosexuals don’t exist.
Besen, a gay activist living in the tiny state of Vermont, extracted his unsubstantiated analogy from the story of the now extinct “dodo bird”.
In 1598, Portuguese sailors landing on the shores of the island of Mauritius discovered a previously unknown species of bird, the Dodo. They dubbed the bird “dodo” (meaning something similar to a simpleton in the Portuguese tongue). By 1681, due to human killing and feral animals brought to the island, the last dodo perished forever. None has been seen on planet earth since that time.
Are exhomosexuals extinct? Mr. Besen says they are. Not one exhomosexual to be found anywhere in the whole world? Not according to Wayne Besen. Perhaps this is just the ranting of an unstable mind so full of hate for exgays that its caused Mr. Besen to live in a state of denial.
So in an effort to educate Mr. Besen and his group of like minded followers, the RAD (Rare As Dodos) Report was born. The purpose of this blog is simple: to present proof that Wayne Besen is a liar. We’ll prove this by posting unscripted videos of a real former gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transgenders in their own words telling their personal stories of change. And we’ll tag Mr. Besen on every post — with some reminders about lying— until he either recants his lie or be faced with an insurmountable record affirming the truth.
