Comment on Guidance Documents
The guidance document appears to be incomplete as it does not allow counselors and psychologists to help those who are struggling with same sex attraction or gender confusion. I strongly oppose the passage of this document as it will cause more harm to individuals who want help with same sex attraction and gender confusion but the counselor or psychologist is prevented from actually helping them. Individuals seeking help to turn away from same sex attraction or those seeking to live as their birth gender need love and support, not to be told by a counselor or psychologist that they cannot be helped.
