And we can take them at their word, I suppose, and allow them to enjoy their ex-gayness unmolested. But when a conservative politician or religious bigot points to ex-gays as proof that no one else has to be gay (and hence there's no need to protect or acknowledge the civil rights of gays and lesbians)—and when ex-gays allow themselves to be used to make an explicitly anti-gay political point—then we have a right to ask that political/religious bigots this question: "Would you want your daughter to marry one?"

The answer is always no. Because the people out there pimping "ex-gays" don't believe in ex-gayness anymore than the still-gays and never-gays do.
