But if you read the story, you will see that the note about the screen shot refers to another picture in the fuller text. It later identifies the pic of Lily correctly.

Duh.

The videos are not actually supposed to turn you str8, like some good, talibangelical cult "reparations" therapy would.

These are the parodies. It's just difficult to parody Church Lady Michele and Marcus the Effeminate Heterosexual, since they're already so far out.

Try watching them again. Lisa Kudrow's character reminds of me the "Philangee" character she used to pull on Friends. Meryl Streep's portrayal of a reparative therapist reminds me of Tina Fey's portrayal of Sarah Palin. They hit on a lot of the stupidity and ignorance that surrounds reparative therapy and homophobia that has been covered in news articles.

I know this is off topic but it is in good taste: If that profile pic is of you you are a handsome guy!

You coulda sent him a personal note by clicking on his name. This isn't a dating service, LOL. Besides he already knows he's a handsome guy I'd wager.

Beyond that I spent an hour last night watching some of this series and have to say it's really, really well done and the character actors are terrific! Kudrow is FANTASTIC and this is the perfect pairing for her abilities.

I'm sure he does. All the cute guys are taken. lol. I know it's not a dating site. I didn't go any further than what I said. I have met a few friends off Topix though, one of them I sort of dated.
