What are the planned activities inside 'gay conversion' camps?

The one I went to was a lot of videos telling us about the horrors of homosexuality and how horrible we were for ever feeling so inclined, electric shocks (the intensity of which was gradually increased), and shaming. The initial phase was an in-patient process, then it was scheduled sessions afterwards.

The inpatient phase also used sleep deprivation, and we had to stand for most of the day, to prevent us from falling asleep. I remember the volume being incredibly loud when they played their videos.

While we were hooked up to the machine which shocked us, they'd show us slides with various stimulus - men and women of all ages, ranging from candid shots to much more suggestive photos. Have the wrong reaction to the ‘right' gender, you get zapped. Have the wrong reaction to the ‘wrong' gender, you get zapped. Some of those photos included who I later found out was Cintia Dicker... I took more than a few electric shocks over her.

There were other workshops they had, as well, one of which included cutting out photos of people from various magazines and arranging them into little ‘families'. They were all expected to be homogeneous (unilaterally one race), at least two children, and at least one should be a son. I use to butcher that one deliberately to piss them off, although I'd end up paying for it later on.

While this program wasn't religious in nature, there were ‘spiritual advisors' on hand to cover that angle for those who "asked" for their guidance, including the one who preached to me, "God made titties for babies!" (although I never asked for his ‘guidance', he made it a point to remind me time and time again about his disposition.

I went on my own volition- some of the participants were minors sent involuntary by their parents.


How can one remove sun tans and lighten the skin back to its original color?

You don't. Skin tanning is your body's natural way to protect itself from the cancer-causing UV rays of the sun. You cannot speed the rate that your body un-tans. That's like asking how to make your body heal slower, or how to age and die faster. I'm sorry that you think healthy skin is somehow ugly, but that's society's

Am I gaining fat or muscle - how can I tell?

Here's the thing-muscle weighs significantly more than fat. For example, some may think hat after 3 months of strict dieting and exercising, only losing 5 pounds was horrible progress. But what they are not taking into consideration is that the weight they lost could've been mostly fat.
