Conversion therapy is a questionable psychological process meant to convert gay people into straight people.
So, these people are likely cheering the recent about-face of the Trudeau Liberals. In March, the government rejected an 18,000 name petition calling to ban conversion therapy on the grounds that it's a provincial and territorial issue, not federal.
But now, according to a recent letter signed by two Liberal cabinet ministers and an Alberta MP, the feds are looking at ways to reform the Criminal Code to ban the practice of conversion therapy nationwide.
Maybe they now agree with those who have studied conversion therapy, who have come to the conclusion that this process simply does not work.
But here’s the rub: if we’re being told that the “conversion” of people is bad in terms of trying to make gay people straight people, why do we cheer on males converting into females and vice-versa – even when we are talking about male and female children who haven’t reached puberty yet?
