The topic of today’s Agenda Lies installment is the notion that declassification of homosexual behavior as a mental illness or disorder was a result of any scientific research or study. Here we have a former president of the APA saying exactly what I’ve stated in other posts and comments, which is that homosexuality was declassified as a mental disorder in 1973 in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders as the result of activism. What’s more, Dr. Nicholas Cummings supports the Agenda That Doesn’t Exist, but is honest enough to tell the truth.
(This also points to a common misconception regarding which side of the political divide rejects science in order to maintain a position. Once again we see it is the left that does this, not the right.)
Pressure from the homosexual activists is essential in overriding the logic, morality and science that supports the positions of their opponents. What else is left to them but to be obnoxious? As stated many times, if there was sound science upon which to rely, that science would be at the forefront of every debate related to the Agenda’s advancement. But we’re not graced with any such evidence from science. What passes for scientific evidence is the APA’s support. I guess because psychology and psychiatry are sciences, then it is enough for an association of those scientific practitioners to merely state that something is so for it to be regarded as scientific evidence. At least it’s enough for the supporters of the Agenda (and lefties in general) who would prefer no one look too deeply into an issue they support.
On a side note, there is a list of links to related articles at the bottom of the article to which I’ve linked above. One of them carried this:
“Statewide campaigns to deny same-sex couples legal access to civil marriage are a significant source of stress to the lesbian, gay, and bisexual residents of those states,” states the APA, which bills itself as “a strong advocate for full equal rights for LGBT people.”
Really? Do homosexuals often sit about anguishing over this issue to the point of being significantly stressed? There are laws in my state that deny me access to a few things, such as the right to carry a weapon to protect myself. Such denial has never been particularly stressful for me. What’s wrong with those people that they are so easily stressed? I thought they were no different than the rest of us.
