5 Things You Should Know About Gay Conversion Therapy
A therapy that claims to convert gay people into heterosexuals is being tested in court with two new cases, one of which seeks to sue counselors offering the therapy and the other seeking to defend them.

Gay conversion therapy, as it is known, supposedly helps gay people overcome same-sex attractions. But mainstream psychologists say the therapy is ineffective, unethical and often harmful, exacerbating anxiety and self-hatred among those treated for what is not a mental disorder.

Here are five things you need to know about the therapy and the current lawsuits. [link to www.livescience.com]

I know. I was just venting. It's unbelievable to me that someone could think that they could change "brainwash" someone into being attracted to something that they are not.

And to think, when I saw the title I thought this was about converting heterosexual people into homosexuals, in line with current governmental and social policies.
