Adele songs turn people gay, claims therapist

A Texas therapist used to tell patients to throw out any CDs by any artists that are 'popular in the gay community' and only listen to Christian music if they want to be straight
Adele songs turn you gay, claims a Texas doctor.

Adele is being accused of turning people gay with her music.

A retired 'therapist' used to claim the Oscar-winning ‘Skyfall’ singer is on the list of things that men ‘should avoid if they want to be straight’.

Openly gay doctor Christian Jessen, 37, discovered the bizarre claims in a new Channel 4 documentary Cure Me I’m Gay.

In the film, he meets retired 'therapist' John Smid from Texas who used to offer rehab for gay men.

As part of his old practices, he shows Jessen how he used to 'treat' his patients.

He throws out Jessen’s Adele CD, telling him: ‘Adele is very popular within the gay community. You have to listen to Christian music.’

While Adele is popular in the LGBTI world for her outspoken support for equal rights, she's incredibly popular worldwide. Over 26.4 million people bought her last album 21.

Years ago, Smid used to run a program called 'Love In Action' that was based on how other doctors dealt with drug and alcohol addicts.

He resigned from the program after it was found 'Love In Action' was treating teenagers against their will. Smid no longer practices 'gay cure' therapy and lives with his male partner.

In Dallas, Jessen also visits a doctor who claims he can change sexuality through coloring books.

But it’s not just in the US, in London he meets a pastor who offers exorcisms to rid people of ‘gay demons’.

In the show, Jessen says: ‘I am astounded that in this day and age people still think that being gay is a curable condition. It’s a load of utter rubbish.’

Last month, the UK’s most senior mental health bodies united to condemn ‘gay cure’ therapies.

It followed a House of Commons debate in November that stated they would not be putting any ban on ‘conversion therapies’ into law.

Undercover Doctor: Cure Me I’m Gay airs on Channel 4 tonight at 10pm.

UPDATE: This article was written on the basis of information provided by the documentary's producers and other news sources prior to the airing of the film. Smid got in contact with Gay Star News to say he no longer practices 'gay cure' therapy. We are happy to make this correction.

Medic reviewed Albenza consumer data - includes Albendazole write-up, dosing and manual. As anthelmintic, Albenza induces degenerative changes in the tegument and intestinal cells of the helminth by connecting to the colchicine-sensitive spot of tubulin (, for this inhibiting its polymerization or connection into microtubules. The miss of the cytoplasmic microtubules leads to depressed absorption of glucose by the larval and adult stages of the helminths, and depletes their glycogen storages. In the following is the most serious manual on possible conventional adverse effects of Albenza. These side effects in the main do not arise, but they can. Because each man reacts differently to a drug. Be delighted and also note that the side effects in class and periodicity depending on the dosing form of a drug.

That's all I needed to know about this person. Worked during the time when LGBTs were routinely harassed by police under bigoted laws, thrown into psychiatric hospitals against their will, given electroshock therapy and lobotomies if they didn't conform to heternormative behavior. This RELIGIOFASCIST is a disgrace to the psychiatric profession.

Before Adele I was only into fucking a nice hairy ass, and getting plowed by a big juicy cock. Sometimes it was a long make out session with a ripped bud and sucking a cock for hours.

But now... I'm just gay! It had to have been Adele. Thanks babe!

The quote above, and the reference to my reaffirming ExGay ministry is false. Any statements that may have reflected this perspective would have only been made prior to 2008 when I was still involved in ExGay ministry.

I do not know why, or how that may have been reported. In the documentary, they came to me and asked me to do a "mock" intake to the program I used to be part of. Afterwards they asked me to go through and debunk all of the things that were harmful.

I haven't seen the documentary so I don't know how they have used this recording. The mock intake was followed by a secondary interview while they were here, with me speaking of the falsehoods in the process and the harms done by wrongly applying addiction recovery techniques to people who were not addicts. We spent quite a bit of time going over the inappropriately applied techniques
