I just heard California banned some psychological ‘treatment’ for queer teens aimed at straightening them out.
Which is good, because it’s now illegal. In California. … .. .
(Personal, related addage:) When I was little, I saw this movie called But I’m A Cheerleader, which was supposedly a wild parable of negative societal views towards queerness, in which kids were sent to a camp to learn proper gender and sexual roles (in latex). The main character first questions her sexuality when recruiters show up at her home and begin prodding her about such things as looking at other cheerleaders’ breasts, which she considers benign and perfectly normal. It was at that exact instance that I felt a chill down my spine realizing I did the exact same thing. The rest of the movie scared the shit out of me.
THIS IS THE SHIT THAT ACTUALLY GOES ON OUT THERE.
