Hello I'm new, i just joined. Anyways, i am currently working on a project about the APA's (American Psychiatric Association) removal of homosexuality as a mental disorder. Up until 1973, the reference book called the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders)listed homosexuality as a mental disorder. As a young gay male, this frightens me. What if we still lived in a world where homosexuals were considered mentally disturbed? i think we have definitely come a long way since then. Well anyways, i want to find out what some of u think about this. How do u think the removal of homosexuality as a mental disorder has changed the world? Or what do u think society would be like if it were not removed?
I was also reading this web site that is put on by the Traditional Living Coalition, and they ask, "Has psychiatry really proven that homosexual behavior is normal?" As i read this i automatically asked WHAT IS NORMAL??!!!! I DONT THINK ANYONE CAN ANSWER THAT!!! so anyways, id really like to hear what people think about these subjects.
