Double Standard

It is unbelievable that we can push for such a double standard. As counselors your jobs are to be neutral and assist consenting patients to whatever logical conclusion they arise at for themselves. Since when do we impose our opinions on patients? If we can support our patients that wish to pursue a same sex relationship or to “change” their gender, then why can’t we also support the patient that does not wish to live with these unwanted sexual feelings? Do NOT punish licensed counselors for helping patients overcome their unwanted sexual feelings by affirming biological realities concerning males and females.
