Message: Being gay is not an illness

There are 54 comments on the The Telegraph story from Jun 7, 2018, titled Message: Being gay is not an illness. In it, The Telegraph reports that:

New Delhi: The Indian Psychiatric Society has launched its first-ever campaign to assert that homosexuality is not an illness amid concerns that sections of the public and physicians continue to mistakenly believe it can be treated. Senior members of the IPS plan to address conferences open to the public and use social media platforms to argue that homosexuality and lesbianism are just variations in sexual orientation and provide science-driven guidance to the campaign to decriminalise homosexuality.

ENDOCRINE DISORDERS 

No science to psychiatry. The scam is to sell more MIND EFFECTING drugs and have the public except the outcome of gender behavior by drug induced manipulation. Look at the military and the exceptance of homosexuality or trans gender persons. There is no judgement on an individual. The outcome should be explained to the public. A parent or relative should have the right to exercise the thought or the gender or preference to the child. We are not into a lie or the smart drug fancy way talking for profits

ENDOCRINE DISORDER

By now most of the population is aware why the argument was for homosexuals and other sexual orientations in the society by increased numbers. Mind drugs are causing personality changes and the risk of non exceptance could be costly to the pharmaceutical / mental Health industry and investors.

Remember way back to the change of opinion by the Mental Health Industry toward homosexual behavior? No doubt the reversal by the mental health industry on homosexual behavior was centered on the personality changes by mind drugs and profit vs employment in the mental health industry and the new social engineering for a Republican New World Order.

The church and the established society of regulation on past social behaviors were going to change. It was going to happen regardless of customs and traditions of the past. The military had to change because sales of mind drugs created a threat by the homosexual behavior to exceptance in the military and the social exceptance after joining. 

Mind drugs and counseling would have lost millions / billions in government contracts in the USA and the Republican ALEC would have lost out on a partial exceptance for the New World Order. There would have been a segment of the society shunned in America and world countries as a result of the mind drugs if the exceptance caper failed. Vaccine components, aluminum, thimerosal (mercury) and formaldehyde are all neurotoxic, genotoxic, mutogenic and endocrine disruptors.

The endocrine system controls male-femaleness. Gender confusion is rampant these days. Imagine injecting these chemicals in varying amounts into a developing baby and disrupting that development.

100% absolute asinine garbage.

Homosexuality existed long before there was such a thing as pharmaceuticals. Many homosexuals and other non-heterosexual people have NOT been exposed to any particular "mind drugs," while many heterosexuals HAVE been and do not become gay as a result.

No matter how many links you provide with information about the endocrine system, or shady practices in the pharmaceutical industry, there is not one shred of valid scientific evidence of drugs causing people to change their sexual orientation, which is why you didn't even try to provide any.

Also, as the headline says and the article explains, being gay is not an illness (nor is it a side-effect). For something to be considered an illness or disorder, it must meet certain criteria. Homosexuality meets NONE of those criteria. Those who keep insisting that it IS an illness... are unable to provide ANY scientific evidence whatsoever to back up their claim. All they have is their ignorant bigoted lies.

How do you explain what would cause a man to get sexual gratification from having anal sex with another man? Mental illness is the only thing that can explain it.

Well, one can only guess what sexual satisfaction you get posting about "anal sex with another man" numerous times daily with a different username/location. Obsession is the only thing that could explain your daily routine.

How do explain why a man has an irrational obsession with the personal sex lives of consenting adults who are complete strangers?

How do you explain why a man worries about how other men are sexually gratified?

Sorry, but what is sexually gratifying is not a criteria for mental illness. Besides, many heterosexuals are into anal sex, and many gays are not... so anal sex is not a "gay" thing, nor is it a defining characteristic of being gay... it's a sex thing regardless of orientation, and doesn't suggest any kind of "illness" whether you're gay or not.

But obsessing over what other consenting adults do sexually DOES suggest a mental illness.

Why are you so interested in what gay male couples do?

Sorry, but there are lot's of things people can do, gay males or otherwise, besides anal sex. You seem to do a lot of imaging what gay males do, but you lack imagination.

Why do you care? If your straight life was so complete and satisfying, you might be enjoying that existence instead of rolling your eyes and posting on the gay threads every day/night.

Hey Hubert, being straight is not an illness. Venture off the gay threads and give it a try. You might actually have a few years left to achieve some type of acceptance of your life. Good luck! Always remember, those closet doors are not nailed shut!!

The problem with people claiming things such as homosexuality isnt a mental disorder is the fact they have to also accept things such as pedophilia as well not being a mental disorder (but illegal to act out on for a good reason). I've always found it comical people can say a man wanting to have sex with another man is someone normal, but not with children since its now against the law. Theres nothing wrong with saying homosexuality IS a mental disorder, but can be harmless as long as it doesn't cause depression in said individual. I accept some people are also pedophiles and may even be born to be pedophiles, but that does NOT mean I support them harming a child. Its a mental condition they should be able to get help to curb without immediately facing public scorn.

It's amazing how some people only think in terms of gay men when they discuss pedophilia. As if they are the only group involved in that sort of thing. Fact is that both men and women partake of this activity, and both gay and straight. I don't know the numbers, as I am not at all interested in the subject, but I doubt gay men are any worse than straight men in this regard, disgusting as it is.
