Non-vocal of speech, actually-autistic blogger Amy Sequenzia (April 12, 2016) proposed to our peer group "that every time we write or talk about Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), that we also write or say Autistic Conversion Therapy. Gay Conversion Therapy has a bad reputation.... Both 'treatments' (tortures) have the same root."

Altieri (November 25, 2017). CNN Anderson Cooper report: Kirk Murphy, the survivor of UCLA's Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) "Sissy Boy Experiment," committed suicide.



According to Cooper, his real name was Kirk Andrew Murphy. Rekers and Lovaas (1974) called him Kraig to conceal his identity in "Behavioral treatment of deviant sex-role behaviors in a male child," Vol. 7, Issue 2, pp. 173-190, Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis. They later said he had a "Sissy Boy Syndrome."

Non-ABAer, Behavioral Neurologist, Michael Ryan Hunsaker, Ph.D., Master Special Education teacher, said in a private message to our Twitter account that we provide "astonishing evidence" to the following post.

Altieri (April 15, 2017). As unbelievable as it sounds, ABA Leaks concludes, beyond a reasonable doubt, that ABA is a direct cause of their well-known, extremely-painful electric skin shock "treatment" now as we speak on gay victims of the newly-reported Russian concentration camps, the likes of which the world has never seen since Adolph Hitler's mid-Twentieth-Century, white-supremacy, neurotypical, scientifically-genocidal Nazi Party rounded up, imprisoned, tortured, sterilized, and annihilated 6,000,000 gays, autistics, gypsies, disabled human beings, and all the other terrorized victims we've heard spoken of, especially Jews.

Hunsaker (June 16, 2015) credited ABA Leaks' "Reward and Consent" blog as the "last straw" in his decision not to become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. Actually, it is heroic Anna Kosovskaya​ who deserves the credit. It was her escape report interview she gave us, from the Judge Rotenberg Center of extremely painful electric skin shock "prison/school," what the UN calls a place of "torture," that convinced him.

Altieri (March 18, 2017). ABA did it to gays. They still do it to autistics. We call it false behavioral conversion therapy. It causes us Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), indisputably.
