YO Michele Bachmann: Unlike Your Campaign, Gay Can’t Just Go Away!!

Friday, January 13th, 2012

Michelle Bachmann’s Waterloo this campaign season was her birthplace, Waterloo, Iowa. It was her first stand in Presidential politics, for many in the gay community and quite possibly the nation, we hope it will be her last.

The reason we draw attention to this obscure Republican primary candidate, is not just her views on gay marriage, but the business of a clinic she co-founded with her husband, Marcus. One of the services of this clinic, is you can “pray the gay away.”

Schmooru’s resident clinical psychologist, Dr. Esther, vividly addressed this issue, but we didn’t want to get involved with the election–so we had to wait. Fortunately, with Michelle Bachmann we didn’t have to wait very long.

In addition, a second part– now that you know you can’t Ungay someone through psychotherapy, it can help you to come out of the closet.

Now if we could just find a clinical way to turn someone un-stupid?
