California Forbids Therapy to Cure Sexual Depravity

It’s not enough to promote sickness at every opportunity. Our liberal rulers are also using their power to forbid striving for health:

California will become the first state to ban a controversial form of psychotherapy aimed at making gay teenagers straight.

Gov. Jerry Brown announced Sunday that he had signed SB1172 by Democratic Senator Ted Lieu of Torrance. …

Effective Jan. 1, the state will prohibit what is known as reparative or conversion therapy for minors.

Conversion therapy is a means of helping troubled teens overcome psychiatric maladies that have been deleted from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders for political reasons.

Needless to say, the Founding Fathers would not recognize an America in which bureaucrats rather than parents determine what counseling is appropriate for their children, much less an America ruled by freaks who attempt to impose sexual depravity by force of law.

Pardonnez mon franglais, but kindly fouque off et die, s'il vous plaît.

That's all I can be arsed to say about this. If you weren't just being a bigoted jackass, and this degree of government authority were legitimately what bothered you, then we'd see you complaining about mandatory toxicity labels on arsenic and cyanide.

California Forbids Therapy to Cure Sexual Depravity
California Forbids the Legitimization of Harmful Psuedo-scientific "Therapy" Methods Forced Upon Gay Teenagers.

Fixed your little spin for ya.

Reputable mental health professionals agree that reparative therapy doesn't work, and that the effects are harmful. But of course, this would all be lost on you, and your bigoted propaganda.

And you're absurd to even bring the Founding Fathers into this. This is hardly a national issue, but one of individual rights. Forcing teens into such psychologically harmful cults is flat out child abuse. To condone such makes you sir a despicible excuse for a human being.

And they also wouldn't recognise an America which is full of people who are trying to enforce theocratic government and interfere in people's private liberties.

I don't particularly want to talk about Blount's lies. So I'll just put this up here instead:

I both hate it and am somewhat amused when these morons trot out what they say the founding father would think of one thing or another.

First, I'd bet real money most of them haven't read anything (in context) written by a founding father.

Second, they always, and I mean ALWAYS forget (or don't even know) that many of the founding fathers were deists, agnostics and atheists. I mean, Thomas Paine was one of the founding fathers. Few of the founding fathers were the Bible-thumping Fundies of these morons' wet-dreams.

Conversion therapy for gays is so 90's. What's hot now is the new conversion therapy for adulterers.

Oh My Dog!

They don't give up being gay because of these programs. They do, however, become depressed and suicidal because of them, and you are part of the problem.

Conversion therapy...(has)...been deleted from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders

Is this making you cry Davey? Are you sad because you can't get your desire to persecute people legitimized?

This is shocking. Next, they'll ban near drowning for epilepsy.

I actually am starting to buy tomahawks I throw at the retards like this

You just put it in Parathesis. That is...?


Do you agree with this douchenozzle?

Psychology and psychiatry have made a lot of mistakes over the years. However, at least we are willing to admit that we were wrong, and change. Try it sometime

10/8/2012 2:40:48 PM


Oh, I get it! You're pissed because California doesn't want to mess with children's brain cells and completely brainwash their natural life? That makes soooooo much sense -_-

@Mattiedef: They're called parentheses, and try removing the enclosed phrase and parsing the sentence if you want to see how they have changed its meaning. JGC was slightly altering the text to say the conversion therapy itself is politically motivated, rather than homosexuality's removal from the DSM-III.

Is what a repressed homosexual would say.

That's pretty fantastic. Every other state should follow suit. Eventually "conversion therapy" will be all but gone. Only the most desperate, depraved, deluded, sick people would ever think to put their own children through such a harmful thing.

It's just like parents getting brought up on charges if they rely on "faith healing" instead of getting their child the proper medical attention they need. Quackery is quackery.

"Sexual Depravity"

Its sex, isn't it all about the depravity?

10/9/2012 3:39:38 PM


You flag-waving fundies are always screaming "What would the Founding Fathers think?!?"

You know what the Founding Fathers would think, if they were alive today?
