Homosexuality and Mental Health

Homosexuality and Mental Health

It was never a medical decision—and that’s why I think the action came so fast…It was a political move…That’s how far we’ve come in ten years. Now we even have the American Psychiatric Association running scared.
-Barbara Gittings, Activist

Getting Started

The American Psychiatric Association (APA) currently considers same-sex attraction a diagnosable and treatable mental disorder –if one is marked by persistent distress about their “sexual orientation.”

The disorder is listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders-IV TR (DMS-IV TR) as a paraphilia, euphemistically entitled, “Sexual Orientation Not Otherwise Specified.”

Psychiatrists began to use this clunky phrase to refer to homosexuality in 1987, after compromising with radical activists for more than a decade about what constitutes politically-correct verbiage. Negotiations have centered primarily on how to balance the demands of radical political activists with the right of the individual patient to self-determination, which requires that psychiatry leave the doors open to treatment and implies that homosexuality is in fact a mental disorder.

This is an excellent work-in-progress by Ryan Sorba, a courageous warrior against homosexual political correctness. Most people have no idea how political, violent, and unscientific the push to have homosexuality de-pathologized in the psychiatric profession in the 60's, 70's and beyond.

A long read but worth it

Real good article! As long as homos continue with their evil agenda to try to change social thinking in accepting their disgusting unnatural sexual deviancy, the more will we defend the truth!
