Washington Governor Jay Inslee Signs Ban on Gay Conversion Therapy: WATCH
by Andy Towle

"Washington Governor Jay Inslee on Wednesday signed a ban on gay conversion therapy for minors."
"Said Inslee: Conversion therapy is not so much therapy. It’s abuse. And we are today are prohibiting the abuse of our children. Conversion therapy which has caused scars for decades across the country of something that is inhumane and not acceptable in the state of Washington.”
“Across the country it’s stunning how many people have been subjected to this, perhaps 700,000 kids have been subjected to this abuse, and it needs to stop.”





====================================================

KUDOS to Governor Inslee on signing the ban on such dangerous therapy as it has been deemed to be by many in the know. Many times minors do not know the difference or what they are getting into and given the fact that they cannot legally make a decision on many things it stands to reason that Washington state has taken that into consideration to pass this bill to protect them as they join quite a few other states that have done so as well.

Is there a conversion therapy for that?
Being Gay Is OK is the message from those who know it is an inherent product of their being and in their DNA and how they were born. Just as Heterosexuals feel that being Straight is OK. That's fine. But no one should denigrate the LGBT Community or attempt to belittle them for who they are and who they love.

Conversion is promoted everyday on Social Media, News outlets in every facet of society. They all are saying its ok, give it a try.
I've said this in response to you arguments before, but it apparently bears repeating:

This doesn't happen.

No one is saying "It's okay; give it a try." The first part, yes. But no one is encouraging straight people to engage in homosexual activities.

Its never been proven being Gay is in their DNA. We are male and female, anything else is not based on science.

We know that gay people demonstrate brain activity patterns that resemble those of the opposite sex. This isn't a hypothesis, a theory, or a guess. It's objective and independently verifiable and measurable.

And you can't "fake" brain activity patterns.
