The state senators in Washington just voted down a bill that would, as I understand it, prohibit the sort of "therapy" that (for reasons that escape me) some people believe will "turn" gay kids straight. I did a lot of research on this for Fire Raiser, reading copiously on both sides of the issue, and it seems to me that this "therapy" is in fact torture that produces nothing but self-loathing and, in too many cases, suicide. And they're doing it to children. With their parents' permission. Legal torture of children.
Twelve, thirteen, fourteen years old. Children.
What in the name of anything holy is WRONG with people that this goes on????
