Conversion Therapy

During the past two years I have been horrified by many of the events that have been witnessed and normalized by some individuals in this atmosphere of hate. I must have been living in a bubble because I really thought we were moving to a more inclusive and accepting place. We must work to make sure laws are passed in every state to ban this dangerous and cruel therapy. Thank you SaraKay for keeping us aware and encouraging us to work on ending these harmful and abusive practices.

Thanks so much for writing, Marianne! Yes, there is much hard work to continue to do in many spheres. I so agree -- in many ways we lived in a bubble of idealism after WW!!, but in 1968 dangerous cracks ignored too long began to appear. These cracks were not adequately addressed. I am sure that we will do the hard work necessary to restore hope, and awareness that we in America are only as strong as our most vulnerable links. It will take time, but it will happen.

Barbaric practice

It's hard to believe that anyone could practice conversion therapy in 2018. Anyone who does should be arrested. We need laws that protect young people from this barbaric practice.
