Let me try to fomulate the logic, here.
:If it biological man says she identifies as a woman, that decision must be treated as sacred.
Ditto a biological woman claiming to now be, or identify, as a male.
Naturally, someone of any gender declaring an affectional orientation for their own gender is to be supported.
Industries and entire areas of academic disciplines have sprung up to support all of those decisions. Institutions, up through and including academia, the American Civil Liberties Union, and a fair chunk of corporate America, deem that decision to be absolute, inviolate and ironclad. Naturally, there’s a branch of medical science devoted to helping people transition physically as well as psychologically, to support that identity.
But a gay person deciding they want to identify as straight, and making efforts to do so, must be squashed with the full power of the state?
Why the special treatment?
What side effects affect “gay conversion therapy”, that don’t affect any other change in identity?
