Let's hope it works, this is a degrading and abysmal practice.

Corrective Rape? How will this change the nature of the beast? These people have s... for brains if they think they can change the way a person is inherently by raping them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not only trying to change someone else's sexual orientation is ridiculous, this "method" is monstrous; it's like trying to make someone lose his/her fire phobia by burning him/her.
