Skip to comments.APA: Classifying pedophilia as a ‘sexual orientation’ was an ‘error’
Posted on 11/05/2013 3:55:20 PM PST by ReformationFan
After a national backlash from social conservatives, the American Psychiatric Association (ASA) has dropped its designation of pedophilia as a sexual orientation.
In May, the APA released the Fifth Edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5). In this document, the first new edition in 10 years, the APA described pedophilia as a sexual orientation.
The classification went largely unnoticed until last month, when the NeonTommy blog of the Annenberg Digital News at the University of Southern California published a blog post critical of the terminology.
Social conservatives said calling pedophilia an orientation was a step towards normalizing pedophiliac behavior.
But within days, the APA changed the classification, noting in a press release 'Sexual orientation' is not a term used in the diagnostic criteria for pedophilic disorder and its use in the DSM-5 text discussion is an error and should read 'sexual interest.
The APA said the unwelcome attention from conservative Christians helped them turn out a more precise and accurate guide.

In other words, they got caught.
APA just found out the hard way americans haven't been sufficiently softened to accept the progressive's next "civil rights" crusade.
Don’t worry.... they just jumped the gate. It will be back... maybe 5, 10, 15 years.... but it will be back... and it will be passed.
Yup. It’s hard to chalk this up to an error when we already know they had APA officials attending that conference last year where the pedophiles lobbied them for exactly this change.
“error” my big toe
more like a trial balloon
Well it sure got popped
Unless a resurgence of a real gospel heads it off. It could!
They should get together with president Miss Spoke and have a mispeaking party.
They got caught, made a small adjustment for the time being, but the perverts of the liberal left doctors, lawyers and politicians will nevertheless continue the war to destroy America and pervert the children of this generation. It is the way of the national socialist Marxist communist monsters who inhabit so many of todays institutions of learning and of law.
“”Error” my arse.”
Ha ha, I get it.
Too many frogs jumped out of the pot. The frog cannot be boiled when you crank up the heat too fast. The Marxists will slow down the turning up of the heat. Less frogs jumping out..... MARXISTS WIN!
Ping for later
I told some of my friends that were telling me I hate fags that they will want to legalize pedophilia. I got laughed at. God please let me live long enough that I will make them eat their words.
Even too many liberals considered pedophilia a Bad Thing. They aren’t yet to the point where NOTHING evil disgusts them.
We should love fags and hate the evil that turns them into fags.
Pandora is a parable of the fall of mankind.
If they ever write a law to protect “sexual orientation,” you know what that means...
I don’t hate fags, I just don’t believe that they are right or normal. The ones I hate are the ones that preach tolerance then are hateful when you say anything to disrespect gays. Like that “Wanda Sykes” bitch and those commercials she did a few years back, yea I hate her.
Or the ones that are hateful of Christians. I don’t know any fags , but I’ve met a couple and I always get the impression that there is something very wrong with their minds. They seem to be the most hateful and vile people I’ve ever met.
Fags represent a set of capabilities which, in God’s hands, would be great virtues — given to Satan to use.
