Re: “Pittsburgh City Council introduces city ban on conversion therapy

No one is parenting anyone's children here. The STRONG MESSAGE is that our city will refuse to demonize sexual minorities under the incoming Trump regime.

ACTNYC: But it is the city's place to outlaw child abuse, which conversion therapy amounts to.

Re: “Pittsburgh City Council introduces city ban on conversion therapy

This shouldn't be something that requires an ordinance: to me it seems like backlash paranoia. It is obviously well-intentioned but it seems to me that it seeks to accomplish something that is more rightly done by simple openness and compassion and good example.

Re: “Pittsburgh City Council introduces city ban on conversion therapy

This concerns me that the city thinks it is their place to parent someone else's children

Re: “Pittsburgh City Council introduces city ban on conversion therapy

This is wonderful to hear. Conversion Therapy is dangerous snake oil and has no place in our city.

Re: “Pittsburgh City Council introduces city ban on conversion therapy

DIANA SIMS. If I chose to be gay, when did you choose to be straight?
Conversion therapy is dangerous. The child will grow up thinking every thing he or she is, is dirty, ugly, sinful, they will come to hate themselves.

Concerning leaving the parents to parent, unfortunately many parents don't know the first thing about being a parent. In this case, the parents need to be told not to destroy their child.

Re: “Pittsburgh City Council introduces city ban on conversion therapy

There are plenty of times when people make decisions you or I wouldn't make. That does not by default mean you should regulate the choice. Leave parenting to the parents.

Re: “Pittsburgh workers walk off jobs and rally Downtown to protest for higher wages

I remember working a minimum wage job. I worked in a grocery store and a guy shit his pants. I had to clean up shit. It sucked. After I cleaned up the shit, I enrolled in community college, because I didn't like cleaning up shit. So I worked that job, got my degree, and got a good job. But I shit my pants on the bus tonight stuck in traffic due to these protesters. I won't like it but I'll clean up my own shit.

Re: “Pittsburgh City Council hears from advocates on gender-equity bill

Many wonderful female and male community members took time out their day to speak as advocates, clinicians, researchers, and citizens. It seems relevant to note that none of our five male City Council members attended any part of this hearing.

Re: “Concert review: Ms. Lauryn Hill at Carnegie of Homestead Music Hall, May 11

I Went to a Lauryn concert last night, and I'm VERY disappointed, I was soooo stoked about seeing her, only for her to not interact with the crowd and remix every song that each fan came to sing along to. Her band and backup singers have to hate her, she orchestrates like a choir director who had never performed with her band before, her voice was still AMAZING, her talent is obvious, but she definitely needs to get herself together, never will I attend another concert, i left early very disappointed

Re: “Pittsburgh City Council hears from advocates on gender-equity bill

I am absolutely for gender equity. In fact, I believe the glass ceiling will never be truly broken until at least half of all work-place fatalities are inflicted upon women. As it stands, men suffer about 98% of workplace deaths, so we've got a lot of work to do to ensure that more women start dying on the job - its for equality goy!

Re: “Consolation prize: Allegheny County turns bluer among historic GOP victory in Pennsylvania

The voting in Allegheny County that went more blue is most likely because there are more free handouts here and they were afraid that would come to an end. I'm not saying that's the whole reason, only part of the reason. Time to come together peacefully.
