Petition to ban LGBTQIA+ "conversion therapy"

Post by Vincent Giacalone on Wed Jan 21, 2015 2:45 pm

Everyone please sign this; it needs to hit 100,000 by February 2nd. Leelah Alcorn was by far NOT the only person to go through this kind of horror and our country's leaders must do everything in their power to stop it.

That's all I need to say about this. I am not going to tell a person not to be LGBTQIA (who the hell magically through the "I" and "A" on this as well?), but if a person does not want to be gay and sincerely believes psychiatric therapy can help overcome it, why the hell not? We let people go to shrinks for much sillier reasons.

Honestly lost a lot of respect for you with that comment.

I signed both the change.org and the whitehouse.gov petitions. Just be aware that you might have to confirm your signature via eMail. Very Happy

I hadn't earned any respect around here yet anyway. I'm still in the beginning stages. Razz

Don't worry; I'll quit now even though I'm on a roll.

I'm not sure if this is just a poorly worded statement or if you really are that insensitive. I'm pretty sure it's the latter. Either way, it can be interpreted as extremely bigoted language so you won't be welcome here for awhile. If you were not trying to come off that way, then an apology is certainly in order... but you can give that after your vacation.

There are plenty of persons on the LGBTQ spectrum that use this forum. Even if there weren't, I would have much the same reaction.

How about we don't post politics in the first place?

Not so much politics really, but solely a petition for something which genuinely shouldn't exist in the first place?

I would sign the petition, although not a resident of the US so don't think I can?

Sorry, I've just seen to many idiots "debate" stuff like this on facebook, I'd rather not have it leak over here to EFR.

Why are there even people who think being LGBT is a choice that people make? People are born as one of these, & they can't help that. Like Milan, I'd sign except for 2 things:
1. Under 18
2. Not sure if it's American exclusive
