Yes... You're brilliant... Except you seemed to have missed the fact that the word "disorder" is not defined as narrowly as your post suggests.
A issue in terms of psychiatry must meet at least one of two standards before it is considered a "disorder".
1.) A person must experience significant distress concerning the issue at hand. It must impact his/her functioning in society.
2.) The issue must have some negative impact on society.
Depression, anxiety, phobias (which you're so fond of), schizophrenia, developmental disorders, cognitive disorders; all of these are examples of "disorders".
Homosexuality is not a disorder.
Tens of millions of LGBT people around the globe live happy, productive lives. They raise families. They work. They contribute to society.
Those poor closeted cases have an ego-dystonic disorder. Their orientation is at odds with their idealized self-image.
It's very similar to body dimorphic disorder. People want to be thin--even though they are medically healthy. They may engage in bulimia or anorexia to lose weight. They may believe that they are "ugly" and spend tens of thousands of dollars on plastic surgery; only to end up looking bizarre.
Closeted gays will either avoid relationships altogether or date, even marry people who they are not physically or sexually attracted to.
The problem is not their homosexuality. Rather the problem is the anxiety created by the ego-dystonic notions they hold about themselves and where they fit into society.
As I said earlier, closeted gays are only in the closet because of society's bombardment of negative ideas about homosexuality. Religious groups pound away at gays. Uneducated people do the same.
Homosexuality is a naturally occurring orientation along the continuum of human sexual orientation. On one end you have 100% heterosexual. On the other end you have 100% homosexual. In the middle you have bisexual orientation.
Homosexuality has been expressed in some of the earliest documents we have ever found. There are cave drawings that suggest homosexuality among primitive people. It is found in every single culture and society in existence.
And it is found throughout the animal kingdom.
That YOU, a straight person, have a problem with someone being gay--that is YOUR issue. If you experience anxiety, fear, misunderstanding, etc. related to homosexuality, then you have a "disorder".
I would suggest getting help.
You don't get to pretend homosexuality isn't a natural characteristic simply because you believe it shouldn't exist.
What a dope, there are probably more drug addicts, child molesters, arsonists, thiefs, etc. etc. than gays and they all live normal (on the outside) lives. So you level your sexual desires with the animal kingdom??Oh my God!! I guess that has some kind of correlation with how you think huh. Yeah, I seen dogs humping plenty of legs so I guess you get a pass on that.:) When my phobic disorder becomes an issue, I'll come to you for treatment on a way to twist my thinking into believing I'm actually normal and O.K. Thanks for your loving support and help.Love ya@!! Make sure you give me a good judge now> wet kiss mmmm.

That's a lie of course. Prove I ever lied, liar. Easy!
You can't just declare it to be true, I'm not your wife or kid.
Twenty times? Go fetch! Prove it or apologize. You have your work cut out for you. Prepare your apology.
It is already there, at least 20, people have noticed your lying and twisting things others say from day one. I donít need to prove anything to you, neither I nor anyone else gives a crap what you think.

I pointed out a long long time ago that it was a sign of defeat, when you have to lie about what other people have said, it shows that you cannot possibly compete with what they actually did say.

I have a hacker friend told me Topix relic software is real easy to hack. Especially to make some of a specific poster's posts disappear.
It seems to not be related to violations of TOS, as I have stated "Marriage equality for SSM!!" and it was deleted. Along with "nice weather". If not deleted my posts get upwards of ten cute little frowny faces. Woo~HOOO! Ah good times.
I've been blocked for nothing, absolutely tame posts, by capricious "mods". But this is Booger Wonderland. I don't expect class service in this type of joint.

Drug addicts, child molesters, arsonists, thieves, etc. have a very obvious negative impact on society. Gay people can't be compared with them at all.

I not only compare my sexual behavior with the animal kingdom, but I compare yours as well. Homosexuality and heterosexuality are found throughout the animal world.

I'm always at least 2 steps ahead of you. So don't come for me unless you have excellent back-up.

Hey you mental midget...
Do you honestly think that a minority the size of the LGBT community (somewhere between 3% and 6% of the population) has the financial, social, or political capacity to buy and pay for anything on that scale? Exactly what kind of moron are you?
Whoa, what happened to that 10 percent crock of shit, Disco Boi?

And wherever did you get the idea that I said the Stains themselves bought all of Science? Do the stains have a particular need of the global warming scam? Of Big Pharma?

Too much glitter get in your eyes, or are you just a shitferbrains in an estrogen fueled rage?

Another bald faced lie.

And this ain't the land of the Free, shitferbrains. Ever heard of Waco, Texas? A bulldyke ordered a lot of children to be fried there, and The Almighty Cosmic Boogerman didn't do shit to stop it.

He gets off work soon so you'll see few more posts from him today.

Today he pontificated down to us that "at least 20" people have called me on lying. Funny. I don't remember any. Except Big D. But that makes sense. He's worth at least 20 of us mere mortals.

"What is a veteran?"
A veteran is someone who, at one point in his/her life, wrote a blank check made payable to the United States of America for an amount of up to and including their life. That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.
Amen!
