How Do You Define Yourself?

I got a bit unlucky today and caught some of Terry Gross's interview with Alan Chanmbers, President of Exodus International. (brief aside: Is there a mainstream interviewer that is any more softball than Terry? She had on two people that are polar opposites; yet, from the interview you would have thought she was in love with both of them. Yuck)

Exodus is, from what I understand, a group of ex-gays that are trying to get other gays to not be gay anymore. Isn't it a little odd to define yourself by what you are not? I can understand wanting to change your lifestyle - that's prefectly peachy. But why then spend the rest of yourlife telling everyone that you are no longer who you used to be?

It just doesn't make much sense to me.
