Getting rid of conversion therapy
If Reddit can impact hedge funds then the DL should follow suit and take down all of those stupid ex-gay, pray away the gay, bible thumping fuckhead organizations.
How do we take them down? Making it illegal on a federal level? Only twenty states currently have a law prohibiting it.

If a consenting adult wants this therapy, what is the trouble?

I’d rather this then the transitioning that’s why I hope it comes back. With the trans movement growing so quickly, we need a buffer for gays who hate themselves. At least you can try to come back from pray away the gay—transgenderism is permanent.

Take a page out of the day/retail traders’ book and overwhelm the therapists with demand.
If every gay signed up for conversion therapy sessions at once, then didn’t show up for the appointment or made a lark of attending, their appointment schedules will be too full to take on “real” clients. How would they be able to distinguish between a trickster and someone genuinely wanting therapy? They would quickly go broke.

It's become complicated with all these gays or "gays" that now claim they are dying to fuck pussy.

Attempts have been made to ban it. Homophobic women have usually managed to stop it.

What’s the difference between this and transgenderism?

I'd love to see the end of medical/chemical trannyism, but somehow I don't think that's what you mean.

A lot of these camps for kids are tucked away in the middle of nowhere and are mostly unregulated by anyone.

Conversion therapy has been a bogeyman my entire life, but I don't. Yea, it should be dismissed and delegitimized, but coming out against it is purely performative.

One is a waste of time, the other permanently and irreversibly alters your body.

This was a recent topic in one of my law school classes. Attempts to ban conversion therapy usually face First Amendment challenges, at least where the "convert" is a consenting adult and the "converter" is not a licensed psychotherapist (e.g. a religious leader).

Then I choose blackness so that I can call you racist for calling me homophobic!

Don't worry, OP, it will disappear as all the little gay kids are "trans-ed" instead of "converted". Hell, maybe the transtapo can take over the camps. The two movements should just combine since they are based in the exact same ideology. "Just pretend you're something you're not and your life will get better." Fits the religonuts trying to fix the gays and the T trying to erase the gays. They can have a yearly Jamboree in Iran.

I wish the trans obsessed trolls would fuck off. You ruin this forum.

R15, the trans movement is a direct reaction to getting rid of conversion therapy. Just because you don't like it, doesn't make it not true. If parents can't force their kids into conversion camps, they'll force their swishy little Joey into a fucking dress and call him Jenny. Either way, they won't get a gay kid, which is their goal. Just like Iran. So, why don't you fuck off promoting an anti-gay movement on a gay board.

I would have liked trans people to find a suitable forum and stop invading a gay forum!!!! We never invited them to begin with.

I find it strange how Republicans are not in favor of transgenderism. That Blaire person seems to be correct in terms of their politics—a self-loathing gay man who went to great lengths to rid themselves of their homosexuality.

You can’t get rid of something so strongly linked to widespread, enduring religious convictions

R19, Very religious claim that God doesn't make mistakes in assigning gender at birth. An extremely small per cent of the population are born with characteristics of both sexes and truly need to choose.
Scientific studies have proven that men today are much less masculine due to environmental factors, some of it intentional.
Those wishing to transition should live as their desired sex for at least 1 year before doing anything physically to change their bodies.

As long as a huge number of people think homosexuality is shameful, inferior, sinful, or immoral, there will be resilient demand for getting rid of unwanted homosexual attractions

Why do people think families are so fast to trans their gay kids? If a family is anti-gay, then they're anti-trans, too. If a family is embarrassed that their son James is gay, then they would be 20 times more embarrassed if they were to have to explain that their son James is now their daughter Jamie.

Very few people are transgender. I would say 99.9% of those who claim to be, are probably gay or crossdressers. For the people who are gay and don’t want to be, they their homosexuality “gone” asap.

Maybe they think with all the hormones and testosterone blockers and castration, that their son will be more feminine? I think it’s just the allusion that’s easier and not seeing two men together.

You're wrong R23. The religious loons here are following the ideology of the religious loons in Iran.

"Homophobia in families is mentioned in all of the transcripts Newsnight has seen."
"We did have a lot of families and parents who would actively tell us 'oh, I'm so glad. At least my child is not gay or lesbian'."

They aren’t. The anti-trans loons (who have to post their agenda in every thread) are the ones invading this forum.
