If being gay is a choice, than isn't being straight? Do you feel that you could reasonably "choose" to enjoy sucking dick?
I have not had the therapy :D

And your point is kind of eviscerated by the # of gay people who somehow have children in a heterosexual relationship.

I used to be gay. My mom enrolled me in this cool camp one summer and now I'm bisexual.

I'm making progress. Another summer at camp and I'll be straight.
Stay bi, better selection of potential partners.

Fine, but why is it such a bad thing to take them to therapy, Parents want there kids to be straight
Some parents might. Other parents realize that fighting against their teens sexual orientation is going to do damage to the teen.

How is it eviscerated? Lots of people of different sexual orientations want to pass on their and their partners traits, genetic lineage, etc.

I saw my neighbor gut a deer once. He really looked like he knew what he was doing. I think I'll let him take a swing at transplanting a lung into my kid.

I can do that, right? He's MY kid, after all.

Cool story. But as has been stated, this law isn't going to stop those who practice therapy without a license. Nice try though.

Having a kid that is gay could hurt the parents since they feel disappointed and no grand kids from birth
So much for the concept of unconditional love; a precept of many, including Judeo-Christian, religions. Now it's "Give us grand kids or you are meaningless to us."

I know many Hindus and Muslims who are against gays and wouldn't tolerate there kids being gay. So they would probably take there kids to these things

You want to criticize those evil brown people
