Washington DC council passes bill banning reparative therapy for under 18


The City Council of Washington DC has passed a bill banning reparative or conversion therapy for those under 18, which would join New York and California as states which ban the practice.  A typical story, from the New Civil Rights Movement, is here.  

The National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR) says it aims to eliminate all reparative therapy within the US within 5 years.


Some time back, Anderson Cooper on C360 had reported on the “Sissy Boy Experiment”
  
Two of three therapists that I had in the early 1960s practiced in DC, the other in Arlington.  It's amazing how little critical thinking there was in those days.
