Thanks for writing - I think the nature and number of comments reflects that your ideas stirred some thought!

I've always been attracted to the libertarian side of the political spectrum. I've also been fascinated where protecting the young starts and stops when it comes to political ideology, especially your opposition to conversion therapy. The political pressure to protect a parents' right to raise their kids the way they want is represented as religious freedom and patient/client right to pursue treatment, while the results seem to indicate an increase in teen suicide.

Comparing fringes of left and right ideologies may serve as a harbinger of future political climate, but I haven't figured that out yet...

Thanks again for writing!
