If that happened here, my wife and I would suddenly become gay. $180/month? It helps.
Sheesh - nothing surprises me anymore. Where did you hear this?
Gay Reparations??? Seriously?
If this has appeared in the media, you must have a link for it, no?
Let us play psychiatrist. It’s easy, those crazy quacks do it everyday. The people running this country do not live in reality. They believe you can spend more than you make into eternity without negative consequences. It’s not just them, but “leftists” and other utopians (libertarians, monarchists, anarchists, “transgenders” etc) that live in a fantasy world.
It might be mommy or daddy’s fault. Maybe they really wanted a girl and they had you instead (or whatever) so they put all their hopes and dreams on you, forcing you to comply at least outwardly while on the inside you coped by creating your own world. “I’m a girl”, “I’m a boy”, “I’m a cat”, “I’m superman”.
Imagine mommy and daddy and psychonuts and “counselors” who said Yes, honey, you really are a cat. They go to court to have the school allow you to attend as a cat, to change the dress code so you can wear a collar with a little bell. They tell the world that you really are a cat because you wanted to be a cat. The demand laws be passed for Cat Identity types to be declared “normal”...
Your environment (mom, dad, school, pyschoworkers, therapists and politic activists) has conditioned a weak, defenseless you to be taken and molded into a person who demands the world tell him he really is a cat, that reality be denied just to make you feel normal. You need this because you have been conditioned to not be normal.
These people with Fantasy Indentity Behaviors (FIB) are suffering from a lack of association with the real world, there has got to be some therapy to fix. Real World Association (RWA) links that were broken by Cognitive Traumatic Stress (CTS) such as you described need to be realigned.
Attempting to change reality to fit their Fantasy Identity Altered Environment (FIAE) is a recipe for disaster. Okay, I will admit that some of these past therapists meant well because they wanted to make it possible for the patient to associate with the real world even in an altered way but this is not working well at all. For anyone.
You cannot change reality to suit their disorder because it is simply impossible to have a different reality for everyone.
We must find a way to change the Fantasy Indentity to one that has some alignment with reality. You do not do this by accomodating the illness instead of the patient. Reinforcing the idea that their Fantasy Indentity is the real one just drives them farther away from getting the help they truly need.
