No it's not. I was there. That view is merely the sour grapes assertion of a very few (freudians and neofreudians, mostly) who objected to the direction the APA was going.

No. Neither the APA Board, Officers, nor DSM committees were or are gay in any significant percentage. One here and there.

As far as official statements, perhaps you had better review this sworn brief ...

Note some of the cosignatories:

THE AMERICAN PSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATION
THE AMERICAN PSYCHOANALYTIC ASSOCIATION
THE AMERICAN PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION
THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF SOCIAL WORKERS
THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION FOR MARRIAGE AND FAMILY THERAPY
THE AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION
THE AMERICAN ACADEMY OF PEDIATRICS
THE CALIFORNIA MEDICAL ASSOCIATION

Time to rethink.

No, it's a common conspiracy theory.

The overwhelming majority of the APA's membership isn't gay. Given members are allowed to vote on their leadership, there is simply no way gay leaders could be elected without the explicit support of the majority who aren't gay.

Lie. But when you were presented the evidence that refuted your lie in another thread, you stopped responding and left that thread. That's a common tactic of spineless cowards like you in Topix.

[QUOTE who="Wondering"]4. Your MO is to make claims with false substantive evidence. The hilarious part is that I think you actually believe your drivel.
Projecting your character defects onto others is indicative of a mental disorder. It's merely one of several indications you've presented in your posts that you are disordered. And to date, you've not been able to present any certification from a major professional medical organization stating you are normal so that pretty much seals the deal using the logic that you employ.

You don't really expect Wondering to be swayed by facts or reason, do you?

Your claim that the APA was "coerced" is laughable, in part because a minority would never be able to assert and maintain dominance over a majority intent upon a different outcome, particularly over a span of 40 years. It further damages your assertion that NO reputable medical, scientific, or academic institution supports your assertion that homosexuality is a mental disorder. However, the fact that you continue to make these claims, absent any substantiation whatsoever, may support the notion that you suffer from a mental disorder.
The information I reference is common knowledge, even in the gay community. That makes your and like assertions here disinformation.

It's a common conspiracy theory, that was given some speed by some activists at the time spinning their involvement and it's effects into something far far larger than it was.

It's like "ActUp" trying to take all the bows for increased HIV funding, when they were merely the most obnoxiously noisy.

Some of us here were actually around in those days. I was present at the meetings where the votes on the DSM were taken, and where the activists had their little "ZAP" (in the parlance of the day) then went their little way and spun to anyone who would listen how powerful they all were. I mailed in my advisory ballot right along with thousands of others members of the Association.

The issue was in the Journals and on the agenda long before the activists showed up. They just heard that it WAS on the agenda and showed up to capitalize on it.

YOU certainly bought it.

It really helps to try to learn the times and HOW things actually worked during them. How they work now wouldn't hurt either.

Here is a little article about the sorts of things that ACTUALLY put the issues on the table; among them, over 15 years of State-mandated and State-funded researches, and not just in California.

http://thetruthpursuit.com/society/society-bl...

There are a great many articles and reports that contributed to the change. Most are in Journals which require membership for online access beyond the merest abstracts, so linking them would be rather pointless. The general media is bored by such research reports and papers, tends not to cover them, and not very intelligibly at that when they do.

Remember, most reporters went into journalism because they couldn't hack the hard or social sciences. Just look at what passes for Political Science analysis. They report it like sports writers. Fluff.

Members of the APA were coerced, threatened and stalked by the gay community. Gays have even documented this. Gays were terrorizing not only the APA. In the same time period they were on television threatening to intentionally infect heterosexuals with HIV/AIDS... directly threatening the Governor of the State of California at the time if he didn't give them money. The history of intimidation and terroristic threatening from gays over the last forty years is worse than the threats coming from al Qaeda. In fact, the number of deaths caused by gays intentionally infecting heterosexuals exceeds the number of deaths on 9/11. People should not cower from putting your whole community in mental hospitals.
prove it. every single word that you spout as fact.

and here's a hint to show us you're lieing : the APA dropped the diagnosis back in the early 70s....and the aids epidemic didn't even begin until a decade later - so that's the first fail in your commentary.

you really do love to lie, don't you? is that what you've taught your kids, if you've found anyone to have propegate the species with you? from the sounds of your rantings, it sounds as if you're about the most sexually repressed and frustrated 14yr old boy out there in never never land.

"It is clear that he is about to humiliate himself with his upcoming book,“The Gay Gene Hoax”. Although I have not read much of his polemic, what I have so far seen is as insufferable as it is inaccurate.
Sorba is a dilettante who has no understanding of the topic matter and essentially footnotes bad information hoping his audience is too uneducated to notice."

Clearly, you were too uneducated to notice. Sorba spouts little more than his opinion, just like you. This is factual substantiation of nothing. It is the offering of an opinion to support an opinion.

Well played. Doing things like this does not make you look terribly bright.
