Because the Supreme Court, like every reputable Medical and Psychological professional organization around the world, understands that being gay is not a mental illness.

Psychiatrists don't have time to waste on such quackery when their plates are already overflowing with genuine mental illnesses like yours.

Dumb homophobe, the psychiatrists say that homosexuality is not a mental illness. It NEVER HAS or NEVER WILL be a mental illness. You cannot change a person's sexual orientation. Get the picture?

Tell yourself whatever fits your anti-gay hatred. And feel free to move to Russia or Africa....the less bigots in America, the better.

This is a small step for gays fighting for equal rights to be neurotic like normal people.

I have 5 pc's (too many if anybody wants to buy one or two of them), and on one of my pc;s, for reasons I have never been able to determine, NO ADS SHOW UP on the topix site when using that pc on here. Don't know why. They just don't. But everything else shows up on it and it works fine.

But the new video ads on this site make the page bounce around a lot (I use chrome on this site).

(And it's sposed to hit 110 degrees here today and tomorrw. LOL :()

lol, right.

The psychiatrists and psychologists who work in countries with high levels of education and freedom are "forced to lie", while those workings in countries with poor education and strong-arm governments are "allowed to speak the truth".

110 is not bad esp. when there is little or no humidity! I'd take it.

It's bad, believe me. I'm a Long Islander and not used to having the temp hit 100 degrees everyday by 10 am.

On the other hand, my sister lives in Florida and the may have a hurricane this week. In 2011, she moved from New York to Florida and wanted me to come with her, but hurricanes is precisely one of the reasons that I didn't want to move to Florida, and chose to move to southern Arizona instead. Nothing ever happens here weather-wise (although we had a 5.9 magnitude earthquake here Saturday nite.)

But we' re in a drought, and although we had 8 inches of rain here last year, we haven't has even a single drop of rain here since December.:( And I'm surrounded by farmland out here in the desert.
