Should the government be funding reparative therapy?

Tara Bailey
therapist | Washington Square West
“No. I don’t think the government should be involved in taking away our gayness. The government doesn’t have a place in people’s personal lives. Stay out of my bedroom. If someone wants the service, they need to rely on nongovernmental funds.”

“No. It sounds strange to me. It’s weird how the government will give money to help us not be gay, but it won’t help us live the life we were born to live. I don’t understand.”

Matthew McCone
roofer | South Philadelphia
“No. That’s the most asinine thing I’ve heard. Totally insane. What a waste of money. I’m a firm believer that people were born the way they’re born. It’s appalling that anyone would even entertain the thought.”

Sonja Zeigler
hairstylist | Southwest Philadelphia
“Yes, if it helps the person function. Someone might really feel like they need it. But nobody should be forced into it. The government funds all sorts of crazy things. For depression, they give out Xanax in doctors’ offices like candy.”
