In the text of the bill AB2943 in California, a picture of “contemporary science” was presented to legislators. Using vivid and nauseating colors, an array of professional organizations was depicted, all of whom seem to condemn therapy. Books now have to be banned, just like in 1933 pre-war Germany. In a learned tone of voice, the supporters of the bill announce sound and trustworthy research. But when we listen closely, we observe that the array in itself is false, deceptive and fraudulent. We hear fake news. Let us choose one, SAMHSA, and examine what it has to say. Continue reading Californian War on Dissident Views, part 7: “Scams”
In the bill AB2943 in California, we read this sentence, “Furthermore, anecdotal reports of ‘cures’ are counterbalanced by anecdotal claims of ‘psychological harm’.” The phrase on “anecdotal reports” forms the heart of the extremist argument.

In the previous article, we looked into the development of the American Psychological Association (APA). Now we will start investigating Division 44, a small group of gay-lib activists within the APA who write on behalf of the whole organization. Who are they? Who do they represent? We will demonstrate how they have morphed from gay men wanting recognition in 1973 into terrorists, silencing freedom of speech itself in 2018.

Starting at 1 PM on the north steps of the Capitol, California Family Council and other allied organizations will hold a rally to explain the devastating effects of this bill. Speakers will include the leaders of Equipped to Love (watch their stories here), who will share their testimonies of change. AB 2943 is an attempt to call their ministry fraudulent! Continue reading A call for action against the Californian War on Dissident Views
The activists who are pushing this bill, have relied solely on a report from the American Psychological Association. No other sources of information in the highly controversial and diverse field of sexology have been put forward. What kind of association is this?
1. The American Psychological Association (APA)
The American Psychological Association is currently the most discredited organization in the American professional field. It is frowned upon by colleagues, many of whom have left to form their own less biased professional bodies. Continue reading Californian war on dissident views, part 4: “The APA”
The Californian ban on conversion therapy targets all information on the issue disseminated in any form including lectures, books, therapy sessions or anything which can successfully be labeled as an exchange of money, therefore as an exchange of goods. This means that ideas have become a commodity, an article, and the law can now regulate their removal as it can for plastic waste, empty bottles and exploding hair spray cannisters. Ideas are no longer universal, but disposable waste products, like the wrappers of a lolly. It is built on the new pseudo-science of LGBT-psychology. In this article, we will give a critique of this development. Continue reading Californian war on dissident views, part 3: “The Activists”
As explained in part 1, the California Assembly is passing bill AB2943 banning the dissemination of all views, be it by book sales, conferences, websites, therapy sessions for consenting adults who choose to pay, views which are contrary to the position of the LGBT Division of the American Psychological Association . When looking into the bill itself, we see that the bill starts off with a world-view stance which in itself is deceptive, misleading and fraudulent in terms of consumer protection. The draft reads,
“2.a. Contemporary science recognizes that being lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender is part of the natural spectrum of human identity and is not a disease, disorder, or illness.”
The word “contemporary science” is incorrect, there is no consensus on the matter as we shall demonstrate. In this article, we will look solely into this claim. We will look at the historic events of 1973 and quote six contemporary scholars on orientation issues. Continue reading Californian war on dissident views, part 2: “Contemporary scholars”
If it passes the California Senate and the governor signs it, Assembly Bill 2943 would make the selling, advertising, describing, blogging, mentioning or even holding or phoning about a conference on gay conversion therapy to a consenting adult a violation of the state’s consumer fraud laws. Continue reading California continues its all-out war on dissident views, part 1: “26 Criticisms”
In our previous articles (21 and 22), we started exploring the consequences of the narcissistic-triadic family constellation. Frustrations can make you needy (part 21). In part 22, we showed how in more severe cases ‘needy’ can become ‘nasty’. Now we will take it one step further and reveal how ‘nasty’ can even become ‘psychopathic’, the saddest coping strategy of them all. In the first part of this article, we will look at the diagnosis from different angles. In part 2, we will look into the therapy by analyzing an email from James about his past life events. Continue reading Exploring your full sexual potential, part 23: When Nasty Becomes Psychopath
