If you're a gay conversion therapist, the last place you'd want to be seen is on a same sex dating app.

It's worse if you, yourself, are looking for a hookup.


That's the exact situation Dr. Norman Goldwasser, proponent of gay conversion therapy and other holistic approaches to 'curing' it, found himself in.

The organization Truth Wins Out, which combats anti-gay extremism, discovered Goldwasser on the site.

In a sting operation, they messaged him and arranged for a sexual encounter. Goldwasser, using the screen name "Hotnhairy72" and the fake first name of "Dave", agreed to the scenario.

Some didn't seem surprised.

When confronted about being on the site, Goldwasser initially denied the claim. However after being presented with the screenshot of his profile, he confessed.

People were not impressed.




Goldwasser has spent his career trying to cure "same-sex attraction" with therapy and a 'holistic approach'. He often refers patients to "Journey Into Manhood," a program that sends men into the woods to do "manly" things to make them straight.

He previously worked for Jews Offering New Alternatives to Homosexuality or JONAH, a program that continued to try and operate after the courts ordered it to cease. The group tried to use the Torah to teach homophobia.

Some found humor in this hypocrisy.



Truth Wins Out does not report this lightly. While they often fight against anti-gay actions, especially the "ex-gay" movement, they only out people who demonstrate hypocrisy or cause harm to LGBT youth.

Goldwasser easily met that requirement.

Upon being outed, Goldwasser was quoted as saying:

"The fact that this story and others have been brought to the public is incredibly painful but will become a catalyst for me seeking the right help for myself."

Insults come in many forms, most of them involving swear words or similar affronts. However, there is something to be said for a truly cutting remark made without the use of such language.

Some favorites are always old Victorian slang and insults. They just hit different. Something about telling an a-hole “you sir are an unlicked cub and your wife a sausage wallet" is just more satisfying. Although we do not recommend going around insulting people, the list of swear-free insults below will certainly get a chuckle.

Aging is a sneaky process. Most of us don't realize how old we've gotten until we find we are no longer able to do things the way we used to with ease when we were younger.

Like it or not, we've all met a liar or two. Some lies aren't so obvious either, and if the individual has a habit of lying regularly, then that's a sign that they could have a larger problem. Some lies are more innocent––we know those as "little white lies"––and typically don't harm anyone.

And some lies are just obvious and absurd––even entertaining. Why do people say these things? In truth (ha), the reasons might be complicated and the individual might not even be aware. We heard all about them after Redditor Mobile_Sturgeon asked the online community,

"What was the most obvious lie you've ever heard?"
