Anything worth talking about, is worth blogging about

By a vote of 125-4, the American Psychological Association has voted to adopt a resolution condemning the pseudoscience known as “conversion therapy”. The resolution, “Resolution on Appropriate Affirmative Responses to Sexual Orientation Distress and Change Efforts”, states that mental health professionals should refrain from promoting any means to change sexual orientation to their patients. The resolution also calls for accurate education that addresses sexuality and social support services that reduce homophobia while increasing support from family and peers.

The conclusion is obvious: conversion therapy does not work.
