That's right, remove THE TRUTH under the pressure from liberals and militant homosexual activists just as they did with the DSM.

Of course, the homosexuals think being queer is a credential.
It''s like a while back, circumcision was a hot topic.
The gays thought they were the experts on circumcision, because they were gay.
And being gay, they would thus be the experts on all things penile.

It didn't work for homosexuality. The story says that homosexuality, by itself, isn't a disorder. It just has a whole laundry list of disorders associated with it. As for credentials, WHO has them. Who are these "health experts?"

Shall we discuss the "laundry list" of medical disorders associated with heteros? It's pretty much the entire ISCD and DSM and Merck Manual.

You do realize that space may prove to be problematic.

You mean like the need to rape women is strongly associated with being a heterosexual male?

Or do you mean like being a homophobic closet case is strongly associated with being "religious"?

Not a peep about male genitalia until you introduced it.

I can't quite fathom how you can be so clueless about your evident fixations.

W.H.O. must deal with a lot of backwards, theocratic, undeveloped countries. That's why it's decades behind on this issue.

Homosexuality and other sexual variances never were disorders in the first place. The health experts are the ones who practice medicine. That's why they have experience in these matters and make these decisions.
