What the general public does not understand is that standard mental health therapy is now considered conversion therapy when practiced with gender-dysphoric youth.
In New York City, a therapist can tell a man with gender dysphoria that he is a reincarnation of Napoleon, but not that he is a man.
Rep. Evan Low’s decision to drop AB 2943 shows there is a need for greater distinction between evidence-based therapies and therapies that seek to shame people out of homosexual attractions.
If the anti-conversion therapy argument relies on paid therapy as consumer fraud, the full spectrum of New Age services should be equally at issue.
Most discussion of the bill has focused on its potential ban of Bible sales. More likely, the bill will make religious education programs the target of ‘death by litigation.’

In no way is it apparent Mike Pence holds any animosity towards gay people. If he does, he does not show it in public or allow it to influence his views on liberty for all Americans.
A bill to ban ‘conversion therapy’ nationwide would bar American children unhappy with their bodies from access to therapy other than drastic bodily alteration.
Political correctness about human sexuality is fostering horror stories for some of the nation’s most vulnerable children and their families. A new report attempts to clear that away to present the science.
A December 2015 study shows no evidence of cross-gender brain in transgenders. What they did find suggests a link to mental disorders, which are in turn linked to suicide.
For the first time, former transgenders and homosexuals and those who love them will gather to discuss bringing hope to troubled lives.
