Rights Group Urges China to Stop ‘Gay Conversion Therapy’

New report from Human Rights Watch documents violent gay conversion therapy at government hospital and clinics.

The Chinese government should take immediate steps to stop public hospitals and private clinics from offering conversion therapy, Human Rights Watch said in a new report released this week.

The 52-page report, titled “‘Have You Considered Your Parents’ Happiness?’: Conversion Therapy Against LGBT People in China,” based on interviews with 17 ‘patients’ documents voluntary confinemnt, forced medication, eltroshocks often forced on individuals by their parents. 

“It’s been more than 20 years since China decriminalised homosexuality, but LGBT people are still subjected to forced confinement, medication, and even electric shocks to try to change their sexual orientation,” said Graeme Reid, LGBT rights director at Human Rights Watch. “If Chinese authorities are serious about ending discrimination and abuse against LGBT people, it’s time to put an end to this practice in medical facilities.”

Chinese Psychiatric Society officially removed “homosexuality” from its Chinese Classification of Mental Disorders in 2001 and as homosexuality is not a disorder, China’s mental health law renders conversion therapy illegal. 

China authorities have failed to act on healthcare facilities providing such therapy, however, and have not issued clear guidelines, investigated instances of abuses, or held facilities accountable.

It will take the masses to pressure the Chinese government into shutting down this perverted practice across their nation. We can only keep the spotlight shining brightly on this ugly and repugnant way to torture people; forever hoping that the tide will change and the LGBT citizens of China will be treated with respect and dignity just like everyone else in China.

There is malpractice on Gay Conversion Therapy.
So, The title should be Therapist/psychologist conversion Therapy.

The correct Therapy for Gays are by giving Gays Power, Position, gay marriage, Respect, psychology & Law education ,dignity, etc.

I want to make challenging for all Therapist.
If Gays are diagnosed as Mental Disorder

Will Therapist /Psychologist diagnosed Terrorism as Mental Disorder?
or Mental Healthy?

so, that Terrorism is not duty of anybody but Therapist/psychologist duty

Why we spent alot of money for terrorism?
why many people react to terrorism?

we need Therapist/psychologist to make written statement in public and public diagnostic about Terrorism, is this mental disorder or mental Healthy ?

Why police should kill Terrorism?
We saw on TV how police shoot Terrorist, as result some police become victim by Terrorist.

Why Psychologist/Therapist Hiding?

Psychologists/Therapists should not act like unuseful garbage by making copy-paste reasons from news to legalize theirself but should have own bravery to diagnosed Terrorism and to cure all problems.

Imagine if no more Gays, whom Psychologist/Therapist will cure?

Will Psychologist/Therapist become enemy of everybody?
Then, should everybody raid and give electric shock to Psychologist/Therapist?

The Therapist should cure yourself before to cure others, should Therapist get curing by big Mass?

"documents voluntary confinemn"

It's voluntary.

HRW is a dangerous unelected organisation.

The text of the unelected threat actually says "arbitrary confinement":

This report documents multiple abusive aspects of conversion therapy, including coercion and threats, physical abduction, arbitrary confinement, forced medication and injection, and use of electroshocks.

Usually, Mr. buttocks reads the links carefully (in the hope to find something to criticize).

"The names and identifying details of those with whom we spoke have been withheld to protect them from government reprisal. We have used pseudonyms for all interviewees, including those who had gone through conversion therapy, as well as their family members, and activists." Or the report could contain fabrication.

A very real problem exists with coercion and bullying. From families, friends,etc, about all types of things. Weak people will always be at risk of exploitation. It's equally bad, or worse, for the likes of hrw to do the very same.

Please investigate on who are psychiatric in common? are they Men or women?
Are Psychiatrics never got Health Problems?

1. Please give psychiatric diagnostic ( Mental Health or Mental disorder) for people below:
- Corruptor
- Sin Maker
- Those Rejected
- Student that Fail University Test /Examination
- Poor
- Lier
- etc
- anyone against Laws
- Honest
- Lover
- Hater

Do They Should through a kind of Therapy/conversion Therapy to change Their behavior?

2. There must be competition between Psychiatric with non Psychiatric, then the loser should be diagnosed Mental health or disorder

What is Psychiatric behavior?
What Make Psychiatric afraid of?
Who are Psychiatric Enemies or Target?
-Are you going to send psychiatric to Hell?

At The end only Psychiatric alone that having mental Healthy , the rest are having Mental Disorder
