Bill C-6 combines criminalizing one-way “forced conversions” of teenagers; with the abusive criminalization of unbiased professional counselling on the benefits and risks involved in gender transitions. This is abusive for the 80 % of teens that transition into a sexual identity other than their birth or heterosexual gender who later have regrets. Bill C-6 criminalizes the unbiased professional counselling and prayer ministry they need because this could eventually “cause” teens to undergo conversion back to their birth or gender identity.
Bill C-6 also legalizes abuse by not criminalizing one-sided advocacy and counselling that misleads and “causes” children to transition into a non-heterosexual or birth gender identity. The root cause of this child abuse is the one-sided activism of teachers, social workers and unprofessional counsellors and pastors who often confuse and mislead children by failing to explain both the advantages and risks of transition to another sexual identity. Bill C-6 needs to be drastically edited to protect children by:
1. Criminalizing forced sexual identity conversion inany direction, not just to heterosexual or birth gender.
2. Criminalizing one-sided advocacy and counselling of adolescents on sexual identity by teachers, counsellors, social workers and pastors that fails to explain both the advantages and risks involved.
3. Removing the abusive sections that limit freedom of counselling speech and religion related to any “practice, treatment or service designed to change a persons sexual orientation to heterosexual or gender identity to (birth) cisgender or to repress or reduce non-heterosexual attraction or sexual attraction.”
If passed without these three revisions great harm amounting to child abuse will result.
