Conversion Therapy

A counselor should be able counsel a minor according to the specific needs of the child. They should not be restricted from discussing the option and benefits of pursuing a heterosexual relationship. The focus is all pointing towards encouraging children to pursue homosexual relationships. Anyone that discusses the alternative is branded homophobic and in the case of a counselor, the movement is to outlaw promotion of heterosexuality. Minors are highly impressionable and many are influenced by their peers, teachers, and peers. Hollywood promotes homosexuality. The LGBTQ community is militant about promoting their agenda and that is to silence all opposing viewpoints. I ask that you please not ‘outlaw’ the ability for counselors to discuss the benefits of  heterosexuality with their patients.
