Vancouver's conversion therapy ban more than symbolic for identity: experts

There are 8 comments on the Penticton Herald story from Jun 9, 2018, titled Vancouver's conversion therapy ban more than symbolic for identity: experts. In it, Penticton Herald reports that:

A ban on the practice of so-called conversion therapy in Vancouver sends a powerful message of rejection for controversial "pray the gay away" treatments, say advocates and experts. The city's unanimous support for a bylaw prohibiting techniques that attempt to persuade people to change their sexual orientation or gender identity gives people reinforcement to reject the therapy, said Coun.

He is more entwined in everything "GAY" than you and I who are gay!! I'm glad I don't live with an obsession. He should invest some time in thinking straight. He might be able to have something going on in his life life!! This gay obsession of his just doesn't seem to be making him happy!! It certainly keeps him busy.

Reparative therapay is an obvious sham, but it bears noting that programs to get people out of "religious" cults are often almost as problematic in terms of legality and effectiveness. Once you have that unshakable, hardline, though hypocritical by definition, "religious" worldview it's extremely difficult to crack it.

This is sad. Conversion therapy is often times the last hope for queers wishing to become normal people.
