On not being taken.

My family therapist has convinced my mother that taking me to an ex-gay organization (specifically, Exodus International) will somehow help with the fact that I am transgender.

On a scale of 1 to 10, how dangerous would it be to humor the way-too-religious-for-someone-who-I-thought-was-supposed-to-be-unbiased source and allow myself to be taken?

End your treatment with this therapist immediately and file a formal complaint with your state board of psychology for what is appallingly unprofessional and unethical conduct.

Homosexuality is not a diagnosable mental disorder, and even if your therapist diagnosed you with gender identity disorder, it’s still total bullshit. No therapist who would recommend Exodus International or any kind of conversion therapy should be allowed to keep a license.

I’m sorry that you’ve had to deal with a person in a position of trust who so fundamentally misunderstands the nature of the human condition.

Take it upon yourself to find someone new.

Good luck.
