A therapy intended to turn homosexuals and bisexuals into heterosexuals will not be allowed after a bill was passed by California’s Democrat-controlled Assembly on Tuesday. The bill, which prohibits children from undergoing conversion therapy, passed with a 51-21 vote. Gay-rights advocates who believe a person is born homosexual consider the passing of the bill a landmark victory.

Democrat Richardo Lara, an openly gay legislator, believes that “sissy boys” should be protected from such intervention.

“One of our number one priorities in this house is to protect the next generation of Californians,” said the legislator in a speech prior to the vote.

“And some of those are sissy boys. And some of those sissy boys grow up to be Assembly members. And some of those sissy boys need help. And we are here to stand with those sissy boys.”

John Perez, an openly gay speaker of California’s lower house, called the therapy a “dehumanizing activity.”

Those who voted against the bill believe that the bill imposes on personal liberty. They say that each individual should get to choose whether or not they get the therapy.
