Open Letter to the Directors of JONAH
I'm sure that you've seen my recent claims against your organization and the harm that it's caused to me and many others, but today I write to you to understand yet another disturbing fact that's come to light about your organization.
Without naming any names (sorry Arthur, I don't really like breaking the confidentiality of your members), I'd like an explanation as to why your organization continues to "treat" a young boy that was forced by his wealthy and influential parents into your organisation after he started coming out? Don't you guys claim that you can't force anyone to change, and that someone can change only if they want to? I know firsthand that this boy didn't want to go anywhere near JONAH but you guys teamed up with is parents and gave him no other option then to subject himself to your dangerous practices.
It kills me every day when I think about that trouble boy that I met me as a result of the it gets better video that I was in, I met him at a time when life wasn't so great for him, and I did my best to help him find some peace of mind and it resulted in him starting to accept himself and come out. When his parents got wind of the fact, they used their wealth, power, and ignorance in partnership with your organization to literally force him to receive "treatment" from your staff. I honestly don't know how you can sleep at night while so many dangerous things are happening under your watch, the only thing that I can assume is that you guys don't really care about the well being of your members, and your foul history of unprofessional and abusive practice very clearly denotes that.
Your organization is already on very shaky ground and I promise you that I, and others that are sick and tired of your public deception, harm that's being caused to innocent young people, and we won't stop until every single resource that fuels this abusive practice is no longer.
