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.
