It is absurd that someone who wants to receive therapy for same sex attraction cannot receive it. This assertion that all methods of therapy are "ineffective" or "harmful" is completely false as there are many examples of people who once practiced homosexuality now living in a heterosexual relationship.
It is obvious that the LGBTQ community feels the need to gain acceptance by increasing the numbers of those in their camp, so of course they would adamantly oppose treatment that might decrease their numbers.
If these laws are passed to block "conversion" therapy, what stops similar legislation that would prevent people from receiving therapy for a myriad of emotional/psychological disorders?
And frankly, this name "conversion" therapy is misleading with its subtle reference to religion. It really should be called "reversion" therapy.

The Dems are acting like children who didn't get their way in the 2016 election.
I wonder how they are going to act when Trump steam rolls his way to another election victory in 2020.
Can't wait to watch!

For all the people who fell asleep in civics class...
1: There are 3,141 counties in the United States. Trump won 2,626 of them. Clinton won 487.
2: There are 62 counties in New York State. Trump won 46 of them. Clinton won 16.
3: Clinton won the popular vote by approx. 1.5 million votes.
4: In the 5 counties that encompass NYC, (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Richmond & Queens) Clinton received well over 2 million more votes than Trump. (Clinton only won 4 of these counties; Trump won Richmond) Therefore these 5 counties alone, more than accounted for Clinton winning the popular vote of the entire country.
5: These 5 counties comprise 319 square miles. The United States is comprised of 3,797,000 square miles.
6: When you have a country that encompasses almost 4 million square miles of territory, it would be ludicrous to even suggest that the vote of those who inhabit a mere 319 square miles should dictate the outcome of a national election.
Large, densely populated Democrat cities (NYC, Chicago, LA, etc) don’t and shouldn’t speak for the rest of the country.
And this children, is WHY you have a Electoral College. It's a safety net so that EVERYONES vote counts.

NYC and L.A. (and most other major cities) are largely Democratic.
They elect politicians who promise them all kinds of goodies and programs so they don't have to get off their rear ends and work. They are takers and not producers.
The producers of society must have an equal say in who their leaders will be, thus we have the Electoral College.

Just another example of why Trump is going to cruise to victory in 2020.
Americans are fed up with the lying media and dishonest tactics of the left.
First it was the baseless, disgusting attacks on Kavanaugh that failed to accomplish their goal.
Now, they put a liar on the stand. Whiff number two!

"Unfortunately, the GOP support base is made up almost entirely of uneducated and/or extremely racist bigots,..."
But has nothing whatsoever to base this on. Instead, he lobs insults from his rokujo room in between eikaiwa lessons.

The media hate Trump because he has the nerve to call them out on their fake, exaggerated "news" stories regularly.
Then the CNN, MSNBC-hypnotized lemmings get on their anti-Trump horses, criticizing EVERYTHING he does, including paying his respect at a synagogue. How petty and child, but who's surprised by their hissy fit? Surely not me. Imagine if Trump didn't go to the synagogue. He'd be labeled a cold, heartless antisemite.
This is why the media has lost credibility and people are leaving the Democrat party in droves.
It's hilarious how all these "enlightened" types who make up the foreign community in Japan continue to parrot the CNN garbage.
The fact is that CNN can't accurately report news. Period. They are nothing more than a propaganda arm off the Democrat party, and that is one reason Hillary got her tail kicked in 2016. Millions of thinking Americans saw though this.
So keep up the dishonesty and hysteria so Trump can win 4 more years.
