I also want to mention that the videos of the keynote speakers are now up
I felt that “Genocidal Intentions” was the most moving speech I heard. As you put it:
Next, Prof. Christine Robinson, a sociology professor at James Madison University in Virginia, presented an excellent paper on "Genocidal Intentions: Public Policy and the Ex-Gay Movement". She convinced me that the word "genocide" was not hyperbole. According to the UN Convention on Genocide, the term applies to a variety of strategies intended to wipe out an identifiable social subgroup. In addition to outright killing, genocide includes:
*Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
*Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
*Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
*Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.
As far as I recall, she said she would be publishing this January, but I don't see it on her list of recent publications. I'll definitely be checking back though.
