Conversion Therapy is it Unethical?

Conversion Therapy is it Unethical?
Personally I feel it's harmful to LGBT youth and counter productive to their growth.
In my opinion it should not be legal to subject people to religious themed brainwashing.

Your opinions on the matter?
Please be respectful to one another.

Would it be legal, or more acceptable, to perform such 'conversion therapy' outside the purview of a religious organization?

When someone asks "What would Jesus do?" remind them that flipping tables and chasing people with a whip is entirely possible.

Yes its definitely harmful, i would think there should be some room for people to voluntarily go about changing their sexuality if they really really wanted too, but forcing or guilting people into it for bad reasons is disgusting.

its not that it necessarily would be, but it could be.

RE: Conversion Therapy is it Unethical?
it's nonsense and unethical. I wonder why the proponents of this BS can't seem to compare conversion away from being gay to how they feel conversion from being straight to gay would work. "Straight conversion" doesn't make much sense, does it?

1. I'm unaware of any scientific evidence that one's sexual orientation can be changed.

2 Homosexuality is no longer considered by most mental health professionals to be a mental disorder; therefore, there wouldn't be any good reason for a homosexual to change his sexual orientation.

3. Conversion therapy is useless and pointless.

They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts" - William Shakespeare

Good relationships- and good sex- are where you find them. If you're happy with the opposite gender, go for it. If you're happy with your own gender, go for it. If you're happy with both genders, go for it.

And, it should go without saying- but has to be said, over and over- it's nobody else' business who you befriend or have sex with. Unless it's impacting them personally, they can mind their own back yard.

It seems to me that when amateurs try their hand at psychology, there is no telling what kind of havoc they might wreak. The mind is a delicate thing.

Agreed - even specialists have trouble enough assessing what goes in a person's mind...

Don't cling to a mistake just because you spent a lot of time making it

I'm no professional, but it seems to me that we should find a quite large amount of squishy pieces and fiddly bits in there.

Hopefully it stays in there.

Maybe there should be conversion therapy designed to cure those who think they own other people's lives.
