A member of the New South Wales parliament has called Dr. Miriam Grossman a hateful extremist for supporting therapy for those “who wish to struggle against their same sex attraction.” Following are excerpts from Dr. Grossman’s reply in an article entitled “A Serious Accusation” that can be found on the PFOX website. … “As explained in my blogs, Gay or Straight? When others decide for you Part One & Part Two, if a patient comes to me in distress about this issue, it’s ethical for me to inform him about all his options. He has the right to define himself, and to choose a path that’s right for him. That’s what psychotherapy is all about: a journey.”

“A person can accept his urges, or he can choose to struggle against them. I have personally met with dozens of people who benefited from this therapy, to say nothing of the testimonials on sites like Narth and PFOX. … There’s nothing hateful about my position about therapy for same sex attraction, or about any of my positions. I’m a doctor, and I want to keep people out of the offices of doctors and therapists. It’s that simple.”
