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.Logic and Reason is all you need.

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.

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"He's gone crazy," "You have to snap out of it," "Take your meds," or, "Don't be such a downer" serve only to mock, belittle, and make light of mental illness. Such phrases only continue the negative stigma and keep those who suffer from getting help. If these phrases, or phrases like them, are part of your at-hand vocabulary, you are part of the problem. #STOPtheStigma
