Perhaps because they don't subscribe to your leftist pro-homosexual political correctness.
HUGE HA Ping!
Um, doesn't that sorta imply impairment of mental function?
The military, moreso than most occupations, is not a place for people who are predisposed to poor risk assessment.
When I see UCSB mentioned I know I need read no further.
What makes the CSSMM think that the APA is more accurate or influential in assessing the vocational attributes of soldiers than the Pentagon? Morons.
Wasn't Bill Clinton President in 1966. And isn't the Undersecretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness a civilian appointee Job?
Good news Mr & Mrs. Johnson, you're child is a boy AND he's bi-sexual!
Well, this makes me so proud to be a Gaucho .... /sarc
It was always considered a disorder until the pc police changed the tune.
Hollywood says it ain't so. Homos are normal. Just watch Will and Grace to witness the true portrayal of the exalted lifestyle. Next year they will produce the Will and Trigger show--Hollywood had great difficulty finding a homosexual stallion but finally, to prove homosex is normal in animals too, they located a horse with said tendencies--I recall there was one in the Seattle area. The idea being that if animals exhibit such behavior then it must be normal for humans to follow suit.
Didn't Lincoln tell this story?:
Grandpa asked his Grandson, 'See that cow over there?'
How many legs does it have?
Grandson responds, "four"!
"That's right", says Grandpa.
"Now", he asks, "If we called her tail a leg, how many legs would that cow have?"
Thinking quickly the boy responds, "five!"
Disappointed, Grandpa makes his point, "Now son, just because we call his tail a leg doesn't make it one."
That cow still only has four legs!"
The most liberal sexologist in the country (Albert Ellis) considers it a mental illness. See his "Homosexuality: Its Causes and Cure." That's good enough for me.
Although homosexuality has traditionally been considered a psychological disorder the American Psychiatric Association (APA) removed homosexuality from its list of mental illnesses over thirty years ago
30 years ago they made a mistake.
For thousands of years homosexuality was considered a disorder and worse. It's time for the APA to take a another look based on the crucial evidence that has come out in the last 30 years.
Did they include liberalism? :)
No, homosexuality is not a "mental disorder". It is evil and the worst kind of perversion.
Must be pretty different from the guy-girl thing, then. ;^)
Seriously, are posters here suggesting that heterosexuals aren't crazy? I'm an old fart but I remember that part well enough.
Trying to put a square peg in a round hole is not a sign of an impairment of judgment??!!!
Homosexual think tank? So a nothing closseted one person "think tank" is given credibility.
The APA also considers pedophilia non-harmful as long as the molester is "well adjusted."
The military has this correct.
It is a psychological disorder for anyone who was born the sex they now are.
However, for those who were born with both sexes and had one removed as a baby, this is where "orientation" is one I leave alone.
