Conversion "therapy" is torture. Support proposed guidelines.
Conversion "therapy" is torture. History will someday view the practice with the same revulsion with which we now regard female genital mutilation, bloodletting, urine drinking, vaginal fumigation and the like. I have personally known a man who was forced into conversion therapy as a child, and I know a man who was a conversion therapist himself. Both are outspoken against the practice. Both are living proudly as gay men, and are prominent in their communities. Spurn the hateful supporters of conversion masquerading as champions of freedom and make policies based on scientific best practices.
