Radicals on the left and the right want to push youth through their own versions of conversion therapy. The right want to force gay conversion on youths so as to fix their minds to match their bodies. The left want to force body conversion on youths so as to fix their bodies to match their minds. Neither seem interested in helping youth feel comfortable with the minds and bodies they were born with. Decades ago, gay conversion was a brain lobotomy. Today, body conversion ranges from hormone pills to cutting off body parts. What in the fuck is wrong with humanity? Both seem incredibly harmful to developing youth who just want to feel safe and normal. Guess what… there is no “correct” sexuality any more than there are “correct” characteristics for either gender. Sexuality and gender expression are beautifully broad and fluid, and that’s 100% okay! What we should be doing is teaching youth that there is nothing wrong with them. Let’s get them through puberty and into adulthood unscathed, and then they can make the important and complicated choices as a full grown person. And that’s today’s two cents.
