This stuff (gay therapy) is ILLEGAL in many parts of Europe.
And it should be illegal here in the U.S too.
Being gay is NOT a disease, it is not a mental disorder, and like SOME christians believe, it is also not the work of the "devil".
Gay therapy DOES NOT work and it's a form of psychological TORTURE for these people.
What if they say "I am having gay thoughts and tendencies and I don't want to"? Should they still not receive therapy? The way I read this is that therapist can not provide therapy on the subject, period. People who want therapy for this matter should not have it blocked by the government.
Why does it have to be gay therapy. Why can't anyone who is having sexual thoughts that they are uncomfortable with be able to seek therapy?
Well from what I am reading, California is blocking any therapy intended to help people who are having gay feelings or tendencies. My guess is the term "gay therapy" is not what the psychiatrist actually call it and is probably some term that liberal activist have applied to it to try and make it sound mean and dirty to sway public opinion.
Quite simply, if someone seeks therapy for something the government should not be blocking it.
No. What's been blocked is conservative Christians sending their teenagers to have the gay brainwashed out of them. Most practitioners of this "therapy" (more like psychological torture) have no credentials of any sort. It's a horrible practice. It is not intended for anything but for king christian beliefs on people through brainwashing.
That said, Duane is not wrong. If this law can reach into legitimate theory (which would go against the spirit of the law) then wordings need to be changed.
This gay therapy is not therapy. It is torture
Yeah I remember a few years ago reading about a doctor in China who would give gays shock therapy in an effort to "treat" their homosexuality.
If you guys read the article you would have caught this part...
I realize that there are people who take their gay kids for counseling and while some of you might not like it, that is their right as the parent. But in this case I am seeing evidence that this is not just an effort to block people from forceful therapy, but an effort to block willing therapy too. That is just plain wrong.Quote:
