Appreciate the sentiment, but there's probably better ways to go about it as anarchists, no? This kind of abuse likely won't stop with the passing of a law, it'll take a different form.

Harass the shit out of individual therapists/abusers & their supporters. Create counter-programs for queer kids. Find the people being subjected to it and help them. Burn down their offices.

People, including this article are failing to call conversion therapy what it is - abuse. And the people who practice and enable it are child abusers. These practitioners should not only not be allowed to perform this "therapy" but also they should be banned from working with kids, vulnerable populations, and from doing any kind of social work or counseling.

It seem to me that they aren't calling it abuse because they're calling it torture.

child torturer isn't a label one has in our society, and thus doesn't carry the same weight and message imo. I think the easiest way to make this shit illegal is to call it child abuse over and over and over again until you have to be against it to be pro-family or anti-child abuse or whatever. Or maybe I'm just high right now, who knows.
