New Jersey bans conversion therapy

I just wanted to quickly break the excellent news that New Jersey has now banned conversion therapies on minors. The even better news is that this law was signed by a Catholic Republican which restores my faith in humankind at least partially.

This is not only an important step in safeguarding the well-being of LGBT youth but also an important step in preventing some forms of modern quackery which should never be advocated or practised by any qualified healthcare professional.

This is a success for both the researchers investigating human sexuality and of course last but not least the US-American LGBT rights movement. I hope that you’re busy celebrating your success.

Though I am predicting that some homophobe will feel the urgent & strong need to blame an all-powerful gay lobby for the success of fairness, equality and evidence-based medicine. Dear homophobes I’ve said it before but I am saying it again: whatever you blame the gay lobby for please provide some details on how exactly the gay lobby achieved to conspire against the reality.
