Chelsea Clinton has joined forces with Facebook to censor any conversations or ads that advocate conversion counseling and therapy for individuals who strive to overcome their same-sex attractions and restore their natural sexuality.
Lawmakers in deep-blue California have been busy pushing legislation that would ultimately work to keep gender-confused Californians from seeking help to return to their natural sexual disposition. This debate – and several recent complaints about conversion therapy ads – has prompted Chelsea Clinton and Facebook to team up and silence any discussion about the restorative counseling offered by Christian therapists.
“The issue has been in the news of late with what critics call California’s ‘must stay gay’ bill, which would censor public discussions and publications promoting such counseling,” WND reported. “The Facebook controversy arose because the social-media platform allowed ads for counseling to overcome unwanted same-sex attraction.”
Chelsea Clinton ceased the opportunity to lead the backlash against Facebook that started when user members from the LGBT community accused the social media giant of targeting them with gender conversion therapy ads.
“Chelsea Clinton lashed out at Facebook after several LGBTQ users complained that conversion therapy ads and videos were popping up in their newsfeeds,” the United Kingdom’s Daily Mail announced.
She quickly chimed in on the debate in response to the Facebook user complaints, taking to social media to try and justify silencing free speech on the controversial topic.
“Child abuse – ‘conversion therapy’ is child abuse,” the former first daughter tweeted Wednesday. “There are not two sides to this question and these ads – and the practices they promote – should be illegal everywhere. Full stop.”
Facebook was quick to join Chelsea Clinton in her pro-LGBT stance on the matter.
“We removed these ads after further review,” Facebook tweeted in response to the outcry. “While we may miss some, we’re working hard to make sure we quickly find and take down bad ads.”
Earlier this summer, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg defended Holocaust deniers who aired their views on his site –before he felt compelled to apologize for trying to justify their stance against Jews. However, unlike its due diligence to come to the defense of the LGBT community, no such censorship effort was announced by Facebook to quash the anti-Semitic dialogue.
