Call for papers: Journal of Human Sexuality Submission Deadline: June 30, 2023
The Journal of Human Sexuality, an official publication of the Alliance for Therapeutic Choice and Scientific Integrity (ATCSI), is currently seeking manuscripts for volume 14 (2023). JHS is a scholarly journal dedicated to the dissemination of information in the field of human sexuality with a particular emphasis on sexual orientation and gender. The chief aim of the journal is to publish thought-provoking scholarship by researchers, clinicians, and other like-minded scholars from around the world.
In keeping with the ATCSI’s mission, the journal particularly seeks articles relevant to the understanding and care of persons who experience unwanted same-sex erotic attractions or conflict between their biological sex and perceived gender identity and the clinicians who provide this care. Reasoned perspectives and theoretical approaches that may be unwelcome for political and ideological reasons within mainstream psychology are encouraged.
The journal welcomes empirical research (both quantitative and qualitative), theoretical and conceptual articles, in-depth reviews of the research and literature, clinical case studies, book reviews, and letters to the editor. All submissions need to follow the journal’s guidelines for authors, which are further detailed at https://www.journalofhumansexuality.com/about. If you
have a manuscript ready for publication or just want to discuss a concept for a potential journal article or book review, you are encouraged to contact the current editor, Christopher Rosik,Ph.D., at email@example.com.

The Meteoric Rise and Spectacular Fall of Sam Brinton: A Cautionary Tale….for Advocates of Change-Allowing Therapies
By Christopher Rosik, Ph.D.
Sam Brinton is well-known to Alliance supporters for his high-profile activism against
“conversion therapy.” He has been the face of LGBT+ activism in this arena for over a decade, known for his gripping narrative of being the victim of torturous aversive conversion practices as a child. Now that narrative is coming apart in an excruciatingly humiliating manner. Although it is good and just for his lies to be exposed, before those of us who defend a client’s right to explore their potential for change in therapy engage in high fives, I think Briton’s comeuppance should give us cause for self-reflection as well.
How Brinton’s Narrative Unraveled
On September 16, 2022, police accused Brinton of stealing a suitcase from a baggage pick up carousel area of the Minneapolis St. Paul Airport. The contents of the suitcase were estimated to be worth $2,325. According to the criminal complaint, Brinton did not have any checked luggage and surveillance cameras recorded him placing the suitcase’s baggage tag in his handbag before leaving. When contacted by police, he first claimed it was an accident due to being tired. This excuse soon collapsed. Under Minnesota law, Brinton’s crime could result in up to five years in prison and/or a $10,000 fine.
