Countdown towards a ban of all forms of conversion therapy

Today we have presented our submission to the government’s Conversion Practices Prohibition Legislation Bill.

From today will will start counting the days until all forms of conversion therapies are banned in Aotearoa New Zealand. Our hope is that this page will only need to be appended a few times with further activities to remind the government of its commitment to banning conversion practices and of its commitment to human rights, including all the rights articulated in the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, which our government has ratified in 2008.

  1. I have just ended a seven year relationship with my ‘neuro diverse’ partner. I feel I’ve had to make the decision as I felt I was slowly being annihilated. The description in your article ‘why your Aspergers-neuro typical relationship is failing’ was, for me, a really accurate portrayal. I felt so invisible but also there does feel like there was emotional abuse, I find it difficult to separate what might be ND and behaviour which was actually cruel. I’m sad and care for my partner, he is brilliant and beautiful in many ways but I have had to set a boundary after many years. I’m not sure why I’m sharing this because it feels like our relationship is now so broken it is irreconcilable but I guess I wanted to share it to a forum that was open and not quick to judge.
    Thanks for reading.

  2. I need help, IMMEDIATELY! William Shatner, and some of his followers on Twitter, are threatening to sue me. I called him out for his work at Autism Speaks, his degrading of the Autism Self-Advocacy Network, and using the word “retarded” in his jokes. I’ve been trying to find the articles/videos proving my point, but it seems as though archives have been closed, and the vids have been taken down. There’s no way I could pay the millions of dollars they’ll ask. I know I’ll get a life sentence. At the same time, I have no regrets calling him out. Please, you must have some archived material on Shatner’s ableist work and degrading of those who are neurodivergent/intellectually disabled. I receive your daily letter. PLEASE, send me any archived information. I’ll provide a donation if necessary. I just need to expose the proof & truth, to get myself off the hook. Thank you.
