Readily available information on the Internet provides clinical accounts, historical data, organizational policies and professional opinions about sexual dysfunctions of a small number of people in human populations. Reality based on a long history of studies shows that these people have mental disorders that cause them deep emotional problems, and for which they can receive psychiatric treatment.
Unfortunately, organized activist groups have intensely campaigned to blame the vast normal population for their anxieties by “discrimination” against them. Further, they demand normalcy parity (acceptance) rather than focusing on treatment for the “victims”—shifting the public discussion to controversial rhetoric and disruptive demonstrations.
Activists and misguided supporters attempt to change public perceptions with political pressure. They invent new terms (“gender variance,” “inversion”) and add complex identifiers; such as “Genderqueer,” “cross-gender identification,” “male to female transgender person (MTF)”: transgender woman, and “female to male (FTM)”: transgender man—to confuse the real problem: psychosexuality.
For example, homosexual activists forced the American Psychiatric Association to vote (only 55 percent of the members) to remove homosexuality from their Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-II) in 1974. This was not based on science or new facts. But as one author suggests “it was the simple reality that gay people started to kick up a fuss.”
But this author also claims that “There are no mental illnesses.” The “human problems” listed in the DSM are nothing more than “self-serving nonsense,” according to him. Still, lobbying by activists shows their power to influence politicians, private organizations and public sympathy.
