When it’s a parent requesting it be done to their child. That is the conclusion I get after reading an article on, of all places cracked.com.
This is actually something I’ve been aware of for some time. It was going to form the basis of a book I had planned to write, where a teenage gay boy gets kidnapped and sent off to one of these little camps. It was’t exactly going to be a happy, lighthearted tale.
The clear solution here is massive government oversight and a change to the laws that allow this sort of crap to go on. But there’s no real motivation for this to occur, sadly.
