PFOX: Give Our Flier Out At Day Of Silence

"Ex-gay" group PFOX wants their anti-gay flier given out at any school that participates in GLSEN's Day Of Silence this Friday. Their flier (PDF) reads in part:
Every year thousands of people with unwanted same-sex attractions make the personal decision to leave a gay identity through non-judgmental environments. Their decision is one only they can make. However, there are those in society who refuse to respect an individual’s right to self-determination. Consequently, formerly gay men and women are subjected to verbal and physical attacks simply because they dare to exist. Ex-gays and their supporters are denied equal access and support, forcing them to remain silent for fear of negative reactions and disapproval, while gays are affirmed for their decision to come out as gay. Former homosexuals do not think something is wrong with them because they decided to fulfill their heterosexual potential by overcoming unwanted same-sex attractions.
"Ex-gays" are physically assaulted because they claim to be former homosexuals? When in the history of the entire fucking world has this EVER HAPPENED?
