The Mediteranean island has become the first place in Europe to outlaw those quacks who claim to convert gays into straights. Many progressive measures have been introduced since the socialists were elected in 2013 and the little country has twice been voted tops by ILGA Europe. (international lesbian gay association)
The law states; “no sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression constitutes a disorder, disease or shortcoming of any sort”
Good news for a change, rest of the world please take note.

Conversion therapy was founded and practiced in Europe long before it became popular in America.
I know, but I just thought in Europe it is not at all possible. I thought at least that european would in worst case scenario try to pray it out not to do any "therapy". On the other side, the US is the country that has a brainwashing camp for every issue.

What made me happy about this news story was not about the number of fake therapists put out of business, which wont be many, as they will just move on to some other kind of scam, but about the statement that the law makes.
The wording of the new law makes it clear that sexual minorities are as good as anyone else, since there is absolutely nothing wrong with us, there is absolutely nothing to cure.
Nice! It's good to see that they recognize being gay isn't a disease or abnormality.
