It's such a smack in the face when South Park made a episode about it and it's still a real thing! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cartman_Sucks

I'm Dutch and thought South Park went too far, until I did some searching...

Yeah, it was a pretty intense episode. Sometimes I think that the show was over the top but they also explored some pretty serious issues and did it in a way that made them more accessible to people who may not have understood the significance of them before. When you mention thinking it went to far and being Dutch is this because the Netherlands is more sexually progressive than the U.S.?

I thought they went too far because thought the 'conversion' therapy was a funny strawman made up to thake a jab at certain Christians.

That was untill I did some digging, there are some things like that here as well, though more geared towards adults.
