Suzy Sock Puppet BS: Reinforcing respectful 'boundaries' (1096* d) RE: BS: Reinforcing respectful 'boundaries' 21 Aug 13


Obviously, a ban penalizes any teen who actually wants conversion therapy. I think it would have been enough to say that no minor will be forced against his or her will to undergo such therapy, not to impose a ban. Very political on Christie's part. We're hearing a lot from him. 2016? Hmmm maybe.

I find interesting that the APA had homosexuality listed in their manual of mental disorders not very long ago. Now they say it does extreme harm to try to convert homosexuals into heterosexuals. I agree that it is harmful to try to convert people, however, I can't help but notice that the APA changed their minds and it goes to show that our view of "mental illness" is socially constructed and not based on science. It is therefore infinitely malleable.
