Like limbs in procession, like so many birds. Stampeding like oxen, our hearts are a herd.

MYTHOLOGY MEME - [1/8] LEGENDARY CREATURES: THE MERMAID
"Who would be a mermaid fair,
Singing alone,combing her hair,
Under the sea, in a golden curl,
With a comb of pearl,
On a throne?”

Following in the footsteps of lawmakers in New Jersey and California, Minnesota State Representative Karen Clark has announced plans to introduce a bill that would ban ex-gay therapy for minors in her state.
Ex-gay therapy, also known as “conversion” or “reparative” therapy, is the dangerous practice of trying to change an LGBT person to become straight, usually involving religion and, in the case of minors, usually against their will. The practice has been disavowed by pretty much every major health organization and proven time and time again to be extremely harmful. New Jersey and California both recently outlawed the practice for minors.
To draft the bill, Clark enlisted the help of Alec Fischer, a sophomore at the University of Minnesota who launched a Change.org petition asking lawmakers to protect children from damaging and fraudulent sexual orientation change efforts (also known as “ex-gay” therapy and “conversion” therapy).
"Minnesota made history earlier this year by legalizing same-sex marriage. How can we be a state that recognizes equality for all couples, yet still sends a message that it’s okay to try and cure gay children?" Fischer said. "It’s time for Minnesota to make history again, and join New Jersey and California as states that will not tolerate efforts to "cure" sexual orientation among LGBT kids."
Worth noting is that Minnesota is home to the infamous Bachmann family, namely Michele’s husband Marcus, who offered ex-gay therapy services through his clinic. Oh ho ho, I hope this ban happens right away.
