    The American Psychiatric Association Coup

    Homosexuals commonly point to the fact that the 'medical community' and, more specifically, psychiatrists agree with them that homosexuality is a "normal human sexual response."

    It is certainly true that the American Psychiatric Association (APA) removed homosexuality from its list of "mental disorders" twenty years ago, in 1973. This is a fact that almost always comes up in debates with sodomites.

    What the homosexuals do not mention, of course, is that this sudden change in attitude was not based on any new scientific evidence. As described in the following paragraphs, it was a purely political move, induced by a relentless saturation campaign of deception, intimidation, and unethical collusion between the APA committee and activist sodomite groups.

    Preparing the Ground:

    In 1968, representatives of activist homosexual groups approached leading psychiatrists and the officers of psychiatric organizations and began to lay the groundwork for the reclassification of their perversions as normal manifestations of human sexuality.

    These activists correctly recognized that such a move was absolutely mandatory if they were to win public acceptance. After all, society in general would not look very kindly upon the subsequent lobbying done by a group whose members were officially recognized as "mentally disordered."

    In the three years during which the APA's Homosexuality Task Force was deliberating, it collaborated actively with several sodomite groups, including the Gay Activist's Alliance, the Mattachine Society, and the Daughters of Bilitis, while completely ignoring organizations with views that contrasted with the homosexuals.

    Abram Kardiner, former Professor of Psychiatry at Columbia University, revealed that "A powerful lobby of "gay" organizations has brought pressure on the American Psychiatric Association to remove homosexuality from the category of aberrancy. This is only one facet of the tidal wave of egalitarianism and divisiveness that is sweeping the country...."

    During this unethical collusion, Kinsey colleague Paul Gebhard said that anyone who was known to harbor the view that homosexuality was a disorder was systematically excluded from being a member of the Task Force or from even being able to present his views or evidence to it.

    In other words, the sodomites packed this committee in the same manner that pro-abortionist and fetal tissue harvesters do: Only those people with the "correct" viewpoint were allowed to voice an opinion.

    But the homosexuals did not focus on the APA alone; they intimidated psychiatrists all over the nation. While the APA Task Force ws preparing its report, any psychiatrist or psychoanalyst who dared present documentation that homosexuality was a psychological disorder (anywhere in the country) was shouted down and even physically attacked at public forums or at local and national meetings of mental health professionals.

    The APA Caves In:

    The years of hard work put in by the sodomites began to pay off in 1972. The "National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) Task Force on Homosexuality Final Report" parroted Alfred Kinsey's proclamation that "exclusive heterosexuality" and exclusive homosexuality" were "sexual extremes," and that most people were basically bisexual.

    This report in turn exerted a great deal of influence on the APA. In order to make its final report appear to be scientific, the APA's Homosexuality Task Force sent a letter to all APA member psychiatritst. This letter did not ask whether or not homosexuality should or should not be declared "normal." It was signed by all candidates for the upcoming elections for the APA presidency and urged all members to "vote" that homosexuality was thereafter declared to be on a level with normal sexuality.

    This view was so voted by a very slim margin. The letter did not, of course, reveal the fact that it was written and funded by the National Gay Task Force. One of the letter's signers, in fact, later confessed that he knew that such knowledge would have been the "kiss of death" for a pro homosexual vote.

    Subsequently, the APA eliminated homosexuality as a mental disorder from the 1973 edition of its "Diagnostic and Statistical Manual."

    APA member Dr. Henry W. Reicken cut to the heart of the APA's motivation as he wrote a scathing dissent in the appendix to the above mentioned NIMH report entitled "Detailed Reservations Regarding the Task Force Recommendations on Social Policy:" "It is as if they 'the Task Force' said, "Here is a phenomenon about which we know almost nothing and about which there is a great deal of anxiety and concern; therefore, let us suggest a major revision in public policy for dealing with this phenomenon." I cannot escape the belief that this is an utterly unreasonable conclusion to draw from the sea of ignorance and misinformation in which we find ourselves."

    The Essential Point:

    The essential point to be made about this chicanery is that the sudden complete reversal in the APA position on homosexuality was not brought about as a result of a careful regime of scholarly research and study; it was a blatantly political move, a 'vote', of all things, on the status of a mental illness. Furthermore, this vote was undertaken in a climate of deception and intimidation.

    At no time before or since has the APA or any other psychological or psychiatric professional group 'ever' addressed a mental health question in this manner.

    Behind the Scenes:

    It is fascinating indeed to see what psychiatrists 'really' think about homosexuality when they are free of the restraints of intimidation and political pressure.

    Almost simultaneously with the 1972 National Institute of Mental Health report, the New York County District Branch of the APA's Task Force on Homosexuality produced a second report. According to APA member Charles Socarides, M.D., the document concluded that "....exclusive homosexuality was a disorder of psychosexual development, and simultaneously asked for civil rights for those suffering from the disorder."

    It is even more revealing to examine the results of polls of psychiatrists taken since 1973 regarding the issue of homosexual orientation.

    The original "voting" letter distributed by the APA Homosexuality Task Force in 1973 was answered by only about one-quarter of the recipients, leading one to speculate that the "volunteer bias" ignored by Kinsey in his original studies led to pro-homosexual results. It is quite certain that, if 'all' of the APA members had returned their "ballots," homosexuality would have remained a mental disorder in the view of the organization.

    A later series of private surveys which could be answered confidentially and without fear of retaliation showed that two-thirds of APA members psychiatrists regarded homosexuality as abnormal despite the parent organization's switch

    More specifically, in 1977, four years after the APA 'switch,' the journal "Medical Aspects of Human Sexuality" revealed that it had polled 2,500 psychiatrists on their view of what "current thinking on homosexuality" was, and, by a lopsided margin of 69% to 18% (nearly four to one, with 13%undecided). the respondents answered that "Homosexuality was usually a pathological adaptation as opposed to a normal variation."

    This is certainly a more accurate poll than the original APA letter because the letter was subject to all of the "volunteer bias" that self selected populations exhibit. However, by comparison, the 1977 survey was truly random, and so its results should certainly be given more weight.

    This is such a sad thing. Such deception hurts both homosexual and heterosexual, as well as society in general. Heterosexuals are seen as "intolerant" and "oppressive," society must endure more strife between opposing viewpoints, and most of all, homosexuals who could be treated remain living in this destructive lifestyle. Surely it is a more loving thing to confront someone with his problem rather than sweep it under the rug and pretend it doesn't exist. That was a sad day for us all.

    I agree with you 110% mom4, and beyond that, so does most of the population on earth. Unfortunately they tend not to voice their opinion, so as to not draw the ire of the queers and their militant and threatening tactics. But fortunately people are finding their voice, and the voice of others who think homosexuality is a sickness here on the internet.

    First off most people are not bisexual. :puke3:

    I don't find homosexuality normal, but I also don't think homosexuals have a mental problem.

    I tend to think they're just born that way.

    Many decades and untold millions of dollars poured into research to find a genetic link towards homosexual predisposition, nothing ever is found. It is not there, it is a choice and a sick one at that.

    The biggest example of why that can't be true is the case of twins...Genetics are identical, yet one is 'gay', the other is not.

    If you read anything by Dr. Joseph Nicolosi on the subject of homosexuality, you'll find a true but loving approach. Darin is right; the studies done on identical twins (in which one is homosexual and one is not) pretty much kill the "born that way" argument. They have the same genetic material, yet one is homo, one is hetero. But I respectfully disagree with OCA. It isn't a "choice," in the sense of a conscious choice, at least for the true homosexual. I wrote somewhere else that gender identity is formed between the ages of 18 mo-3yrs of age. It's during this time frame in the homosexual's life that they identify more with the same gender or the opposite. In many, many, many cases, there is abuse, neglect, or a very disfunctional relationship with one or both parents. So (in the case of a male), he grows up to identify himself as a female (vice versa for females).
    Now, in this culture, more and more people, especially younger people "experiment" with gender identity. They are curious, they want to fit in with a peer group or use gender ambiguity as a distinguishing characteristic to avoid being "just one of the crowd." For this group, it is a choice.
    In either scenario, homosexuality is treatable and reversable. One can simply stop the behavior. The feelings can even go away with treatment, as testified by thousands who have left the homosexual lifestyle. Just ask those who have been through Love Won Out or Exodus, International.
