CA Bill Would Ban Certain Politically Incorrect Goods, Services and Advertisements

  Assembly Bill 2943 would make it an “unlawful business practice” to engage in “a transaction intended to result or that results in the sale or lease of goods or services to any consumer” that advertise, offer to engage in, or do engage in “sexual orientation change efforts with an individual.”
   The bill then defines “sexual orientations change efforts” as “any practices that seek to change an individual’s sexual orientation. This includes efforts to change behaviors or gender expressions, or to eliminate or reduce sexual or romantic attractions or feelings toward individuals of the same sex.”
Political correctness over freedom, once again. On the left, everything not compulsory is forbidden.* 
   Doesn't this mean that it would be illegal to sell books that (e.g.) advertised therapy to cure pedophilia? Or other crazy shit like "object sexuality" or whatever the hell it's called? So if, say, I get a knock on the head and subsequently only feel sexual attraction for prime numbers...I'm just SOL in the People's Republic of California? 
   I'm neither for nor against people trying to change their sexual preferences. Well, maybe a little against it in the most common kinds of cases, but just insofar as I'd rather everybody just learn to be themselves and like what they like (within reason). But outlawing it? **** that ****. Children are a special case; I don't think parents should be able to force their kids to undergo sexual reprogramming. But if a grown-up person wants to do it, the government has no right to stop him. What a consenting adult and a consenting therapist do in the privacy of the latter's office is no business of the rest of us. I'm under the impression that such stuff isn't too successful...but that's a completely different matter. 

Yes, I realize that I've slightly modified the quote. Don't be a wanker about it.
