Conversion Therapy

Why is this a topic of discussion in 2019!?! This is a pseudo-scientific practice at best.  Every mainstream medical & mental health organization has rejected this practice.  It can lead to depression, anxiety, drug us, & suicide in its victims. And for what?  You cannot change who someone is...and why would you want to try?  Fact is: it doesn’t work.  All it does is harm the individual that the practitioner is trying to change. Stop with this.  Spend that money on something that matters: improving public schools, rebuilding infrastructure in our commonwealth, and microchipping companion animals...
