This can be true as well as the reading that Song is a woman.

Thus, men’s view of women solely through a sexual lens has incurred a

Techniques include attempting to “repair” the patient’s masculinity or femininity by getting them to participate in activities that seem typical for that specific gender, like sports for men.

Another method is the so called aversion treatment, where the patient is exposed to pain while being shown pictures of homosexual acts, for example two men kissing. After a while of experiencing this method, the patient’s psychological response will eventually be changed, and they will actually feel pain when being in contact with anything

A flowchart illustrates the relationship between friendship and sexual activity among gay men and the possible scenarios such as: if a sexual fling or relationship begins, sex continues but no friendship develops, both individuals just become sex buddies. If sex ends between both individuals, there is a possibility to develop a casual close or best friendship. If sex ends, friendship never develops and is ruined.
