An Scottish National Party (SNP) Member of the Scottish Parliament (MSP) has been condemned for comparing so-called ‘conversion therapy’ to resisting temptations “to eat too much chocolate”.
John Mason, the MSP for Glasgow Shettleston, made the comments on 15 March when arguing against a ban of the practice in the Scottish parliament. ‘Conversion therapy’ is typically defined as any attempt at changing a person’s sexuality or gender identity, often involving techniques such as electroshock therapy or prayer.
It has been widely condemned by health experts all over the world, with some comparing it to torture. Among these are the National Health Service, World Health Organisation, World Psychiatric Association and the United Nations.
