individuals who wish to overcome gender dysphoria MUST BE ALLOWED Therapy to do so

It is necessary to AVOID BANS on treatment that many have found helpful.  It is dangerous and concerning that those who push for the glorification and normalization of gender dysphoria are trying to take away people's rights to overcome unwanted inclinations. Why are they so afraid to allow this "Conversion Therapy" that people seek or want? Is the danger they are referring to is that they actually work? Please uphold people's rights to choose including not wanting to be gender confused!
