As a teenager, Nate Oyloe was attracted to other boys. Hoping to change his sexual attractions, he sought therapy. Today he is happily married to a woman. Most people would be glad that Nate has achieved the life he wanted. But not everyone is. Lawmakers in his home state of Minnesota recently passed a law banning the kind of therapy Nate received to help him overcome his unwanted same-sex attraction.
To date, twenty states and many cities have made it illegal to offer therapy for minors unless it affirms the LGBT agenda -- and several more are considering similar bans. In these jurisdictions, therapists may help a child or teen accept same-sex attraction or a different gender identity, but they will not help a teen who aspires to change their same-sex attraction or sexual identity. It is illegal even to ask questions to help a child explore underlying issues related to sexual orientation or gender identity.

Government imposition of immorality, exactly what the Leftist anarchists want.
You also have these socially awkward kids who get on the internet and get surrounded by nameless entities that convince them they’re trans and then when their parents try to discourage it, their psychologist basically blackmails the parents with “if you don’t accept your trans kid, it will commit suicide.”
In our public education school systems were teaching kids all about LGBT and that it’s acceptable, and even OK to experiment. Yet to counter balance this with teaching about normal traditional relationships.... got to ban that.
It’s 5 o’clock somewhere. I need a drink.
Exactly what the left does not want - for anyone.
” To date, twenty states and many cities have made it illegal to offer therapy for minors unless it affirms the LGBT agenda.

This is the preferred method of the left for implementing it’s agenda. Make any dissention subject to prosecution.
Her mom saw an opportunity to use this situation and took her to a LBGT activist counselor and everything got completely out of hand after that. The daughter found a way to get a massive amount of attention which is what she really wanted, they even have her a school assembly to tell the kids at the new school that she transferred to about her. This attention was at the expense of taking hormone therapy and becoming a pawn for LGBT activists to screw up other children's lives.
So what should have been just a minor blip in growing up turned into a major life changing event that has sent his daughter on a bizarre path. And of course she is now having severe psych problems which have included suicide attempts that were nearly successful even if they were meant more for attention. And almost without saying there are substance abuse problems as well. She went from a really nice little girl to a completely screwed up young woman.
The cancer continues to consume the Republic.
I remain puzzled that I’ve not heard of strenuous legal challenges to conversion therapy bans.
Make no mistake, conversion therapy bans will be expanded to include parents mentoring their children.
Salute, Sláinte, Cin cin or Cheers! Whatever suits you. :)
Everything the left does is a plunge over a cliff onto a steep and slippery slope.
