No, it was idiotic. Tell me, Wondering, what reputable scientific, medical, or academic organizations still classify homosexuality as a disorder?
Which is to say, which organizations lend credibility to your childish assertions?
The World Health Organization and the United Nations. Didn't you read the story?
Homosexuality was removed but all of the disorders associated with it are still there.
If it was possible to rid the world of disorders by removing them from a list I think they should start with cancer and heart disease. How about you?

Try again, kiddo. Do you ever tire of being wrong?

There is no shame in holding an opinion, but to claim that it is supported by sources that simply don't is childish.

Gee, what could this be all about:

I'll scratch the World Health Organization and the United Nations off my list of credible organizations right now. Not.

I gotta tell you, no Friday Funnies this week but you're making up for it big time today.

"The change marks a significant turnaround for China's mental-health establishment, which, as recently as 1994, opposed World Health Organization standards calling for acceptance of homosexuality."
Not to bright, are you kiddo?

Congratulations, the number of scientific, medical, or academic institutions you have been able to offer that support your position remains at zero.

I have the International Classification of Diseases. All kinds of disorders associated with homosexuality. Do you have any idea what happens to a disorder when it's removed from a list? I'm going to tell you, nothing.

Learn to read. Homosexuality was declassified as a disorder in 1990.
Those disorders listed seem to be cases where the individual's sexuality is in question.

Tell me, Wondering, what is your interest in all things homosexual? Why do you continually post in forums about homosexuality and same sex marriage when you claim not to have any interest in the topic, and not to have a problem with gay marriage, assertions that are clearly proven false both by your continual posts, as well as by the content of those posts?

Wow. That's like saying that if you are 5 feet tall and weigh 400 pounds that's perfectly normal if you're the short fat guy.
No it isn't.

Absolutely, as long as they don't apply to gays at all. Now you don't need any room.

Gee, they're talking about the guidelines for the 2017 edition. Really, out of date?
That's okay, everyone know you just ignore what you don't like. I would still rather see them remove cancer and heart disease, it would be great if they were done away with.

What does this have to do with anything? Most LGBT people are not exhibitionists.

Who said anything about LGBT people being exhibitionists? You asked the gentleman why he persisted in his behavior and that was the nicest thing that came to mind.
