From people of color to women, the night's biggest winners continued to strengthen the argument often made that the small screen is more inclusive. TV's golden night was decidedly more colorful than many of the other award shows that have attracted criticism for a lack of diversity.

Diversity? Remember when it was called sexual deviance or perversion?

Homosexuality has never been a "deviance" or "perversion." It's only called that by ignorant bigots like yourself.

Funny how you're on this forum every single day talking about it. You seem pretty obsessed with it.

Never? Really? Homosexuality was classified as a mental disorder/sexual deviance by the APA up until 1986 when they were forced to declassify it as such by gay activists.

Homosexuality had been officially classified as a mental disorder in the APA's first Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-1) in 1952. There it was designated as a "sociopathic personality disturbance." Viewing homosexuality as a mental illness was not controversial at the time as it coincided with prevailing societal attitudes. DSM-II, published in 1968, listed homosexuality as a sexual deviation.

In 1973, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) asked all members attending its convention to vote on whether they believed homosexuality to be a mental disorder. 5,854 psychiatrists voted to remove homosexuality from the DSM, and 3,810 to retain it.

The APA then compromised, removing homosexuality from the DSM but replacing it, in effect, with "sexual orientation disturbance" for people "in conflict with" their sexual orientation. Not until 1987 did homosexuality completely fall out of the DSM.

Meanwhile, the World Health Organization (WHO) only removed homosexuality from its ICD classification with the publication of ICD-10 in 1992, although ICD-10 still carries the construct of "ego-dystonic sexual orientation". In this condition, the person is not in doubt about his or her sexual preference, but "wishes it were different because of associated psychological and behavioural disorders".

Diversity was the Ed Sullivan Show. Singers, dancers, comedians, acrobats, you name it.

In 1973, the American Psychiatric Association announced they no longer considered homosexuality to be a mental disorder.

Go to the American Psychiatric Association's website. There is a 2016 article titled "Homosexuality As A Mental Disorder Simply Not Backed Up By Science." As always, you have no clue what you're talking about.

Actually, he knows exactly what he's talking about. If he didn't, you would have picked apart his reply. You can't so you wander off into some other irrelevant place. His source was the APA.

So according to you, the members of the APA were ignorant bigots until 1987 and the World Health Organization were all ignorant bigots until 1992.

MY source is the APA.

You homophobes live in your fantasy world, where your ridiculous, false views of gay people make you say homosexuality is a "mental disorder" in a pathetic attempt to feel superior. When the APA said they no longer considered it that, they were admitting they were mistaken about calling it a mental disorder. Just because you bigoted people choose to keep your way of thinking in the 19th century doesn't mean everybody else does.
