Nova Scotia's Liberal government to ban conversion therapy for LGBTQ youth

There are 16 comments on the Truro Daily News story from Sep 12, 2018, titled Nova Scotia's Liberal government to ban conversion therapy for LGBTQ youth. In it, Truro Daily News reports that:

The bill to ban conversion therapy - which attempts to change people's sexual orientation - outlaws people "in positions of trust or authority" from attempting the practice for youth under 16. The prohibition would also apply to young people under 19 if they are not "capable of consenting to the services," according to the Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Protection Act introduced on Tuesday. In addition, the bill prohibits health professions from offering the therapy to youth, and says groups or individuals who provide and advocate for it won't be eligible for government funding.

Uh oh, homophobic "religious" types, you could easily argue, are not in positions of trust over those falling under the age limits. More like positions of psychological abuse.

Meaning there could be a flaw in the wording of the ban....

I don't see why turning straight should be banned while turning gay is encouraged.

Exactly! They ban conversion therapy for LGBTQ youth while at the same time force little straight kids to read books like "My Two Daddies" and "My Other Daddy Is My Mommy" and "My Mommy Is My Daddy" and to join Gay-Straight Alliance clubs and go to gay pride parades, etc.

No one except for you thinks materials designed to foster understanding of lgbt issue or different families will make str8 kids turn gay. This is just another example of your homosexual conflicts.

But your homosexually aggrieved complaint was framed in the context of reparative therapy being banned (in precious few places.) You are invoking "sexual orientation change," therefore. That was your complaint.

It's ridiculous. Stars coming out or lgbt affirming books being read or gay str8 alliances existing, etc., do not change sexual orientation...unless your own is that unstable. Which it obviously is, going by the incessant concerns revealed in your posts.

Also, most of those things you so hysterically dredge up are not required of students. You're over dramatizing. Even when the kids books are in a particular school they often give the fundie nitwit bigot parents the chance to opt out of certain books. All those other things are there for students to choose.

You freeeks just want a "right" to unlimited, societally enforced hate of and silence of lgbt people of all ages. You have sex problems.

Trying to converse with you on a rational, intellectual level is the very definition of insanity - doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. I'd do better trying to have a conversion with a parrot. Therefore I am done with you.

Then I win you stupid, psychosexually conflicted bigot.

Oh, and you were whining about supposedly turning str8 kids gay...just by teaching them tolerance for lgbt persons. Your sexual orientation is obviously unsettled, or else you wouldn't have produced that equivalence.
