BAN CONVERSION THERAPY
These practices have been widely and consistently discredited, but beyond placing effort behind a practice that doesn't work, the real issues are 1. that conversion therapy isn't necessary, and 2. it's dangerous. Shaming people for who they are is abhorrent -- and beyond shame, conversion therapy also employs the use of pornography, psychological abuse, and aversive conditioning. It's been proven to cause depression, substance abuse, and even suicide. LGBTQ youth -- like all youth -- are perfect as they are. Instead of trying to change them, or tell them that who they are is wrong, we should show them love and support.
