Freudian Slip

Charles Socarides is dead. The famously anti-gay quack makes a brief appearance in my film, where he is seen lecturing at Columbia on some footage shot in the 60's, spouting about how no homosexual can be "truly happy". Unfortunately, he never changed that point of view. The thrice-divorced doctor was adamant to the end about homosexuality being a mental disorder in the classic Freudian way, a disorder apparently suffered by his son Richard, who was the chief advisor to Bill Clinton on gay and lesbian issues.

It's sad to say that sometimes, the only way to get rid of a previous generation's bigotry is for it to just slowly die off, one closed mind at a time.

Jerry Falwell, is that the Rapture calling?
