Illinois House passes conversion therapy ban, moves to Senate

(As much as I acknowledge this as an important issue for LGB youth, I find I am disappointed to see “Gender Identity” being used interchangeably with “Sexual Orientation.” I see this as an example of the continued confusion one finds when talking about “Trans” issues.)

 

Illinois House passes conversion therapy ban, moves to Senate:

“Springfield, IL — A bipartisan Illinois House majority on Tuesday approved a measure to protects minors from anti-gay ‘conversion therapy.’  “

    1. Yes, both are victims of this, I’m speaking to the way they are used. Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation are two different things, unfortunately because they are both found under the LGBT banner, people seem to think they are the same. More to the point, they are both seen as a choice, when neither is.
