Define conversion therapy, Matey

And make no mistake, conversion therapy is torture: the UN described it as such in 2020, calling for a global end to the cruel and hideous practice. Amnesty International agrees. Conversion therapy is a breach of people’s basic human rights – specifically, article 5 of the UN Declaration of Human Rights and Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights. The only psychologists and psychiatrists that support it are quacks: the practice has been condemned by both the British Psychological Society and the Royal College of Psychiatrists, as well as medical bodies worldwide.

There’s no debate here; you’re either in favour of torturing children or you aren’t. Seeing politicians cave to the pro-torture camp is as despicable as it is predictable.

There’s conversion therapy as per Riotous Assembly, strapping folk down an electrocuting them as per images shown. There’s conversion therapy as “You sure you want your gonads chopped off?”

Certain activists are insisting that the second is the first. And that banning conversion therapy would mean the second is torture and not to be allowed.

One of my less fashionable – and given my opinions that’s very unfashionable – is that those who have had their gonads chopped or are about to have to, for their own psychological health, insist that there is a generation that wishes to follow them. Because if there isn’t then of course their own decision could be called into question.

There must be trans kids otherwise us trans adults were wrong.

  1. What is the difference between praying someone straight and counselling someone trans?
    Both mumbo jumbo to comply to some prescribed worldview.
    Except of course that the counselling is likely to lead to irrevocable surgery.

  2. I’m with bobby, ban the lot. No more praying away the gay and no more browbeating children into hormone treatment and mutilation.

    There must be trans kids otherwise us trans adults were wrong.

    Indeed. Misery loves company, so fat perverts in frocks abuse children to get it. Of course, ‘trans kids’ don’t exist, nor do ‘trans adults’, just the mentally ill, both the pernicious and the tragic.

  3. Does the writer still have his man bits? Or is he demanding that confused kids are mutilated in a way that he refuses to have done to himself.

  4. Pshaw. If one is over 18 and can pay, then one can have any bits they like cut off. Same goes for gay-straight conversions.

    Caveat emptor.

    Don’t do it to minors, don’t get it on the NHS.

  5. “And make no mistake, conversion therapy is torture”.

    Also make no mistake, having seen the results of ‘gender re-assignment surgery’ that too constitutes torture. Plus the problems of living with a hole in a blokes body where a hole shouldn’t be (“Discharge”, “Bad odour”, “Blood”).

  6. Carrie is the father of two children, but I’ve never seen him talk about them.

    He talks about “trans kids” all the time tho.

    it’s not so much “bad odour” as “continuous and overpowering smell of shit”.

  8. Kjerulf, as it appears you are new to this parish, I feel I must point out that any post highlighting an error of fact within the post or comments must be prefaced with a phrase similar to ‘not wishing to be pendantic, but…..’.
