Let Counselors Help People Who Ask For It

It seems odd that the government is supposed to help protect children (and others) but refuse to allow counselors to help someone who is asking for help.  If the same sex attraction or gender dysphoria is "unwanted," why should the government not allow someone an opportunity get help to overcome these feelings???  Are you so blinded that you can't see the stupidity of your policies???
