"Conversion therapy is like trying to convince someone to change their blood type by prayer."
"Conversion therapy is like suggesting chemotherapy for hair removal. Sure, you could probably find some examples of someone who went through chemotherapy and was lucky enough to not get many adverse effects, but it doesn't make the entire concept not bat shit crazy at best and outright evil at worst."
"Conversion therapy is taking away the rights of the people who they are "treating" Conversion therapy is like electroshock therapy in the past is does more harm and does not change anything. From what I read about these places they are borderline torture camps. Face it these places are just a snake oil to desperate people who can't see beyond themselves and what they believe is "normal" acceptable behavior. You can't make a zebra charge its stripes- just hide them. "
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
