Pentagon Disavows Homosexual Description In Decade-Old Document


June 29, 2006 – The Pentagon has caved in to homosexual activists who have criticized the military for a document titled “Certain Mental Disorders,” which listed such conditions as mental retardation, personality disorders, alcoholism, along with same-sex attractions.

The Pentagon issued a disclaimer last week about the document, saying: “Homosexuality should not have been characterized as a mental disorder in an appendix of a procedural instruction. Notwithstanding its inclusion, we find no practical impact since the appendix simply listed factors that do NOT constitute a physical disability, and homosexuality of course does not.”

The American Psychiatric Association was pressured by homosexual activists in 1973 to remove homosexuality as a mental disorder from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). The decision was not based on science, but on political pressure from these radical activists.

See: Homosexual Urban Legend, “Exposed: The Myth That Psychiatry Has Proven That Homosexual Behavior Is Normal,” describe how these radicals pressured APA officials into removing homosexuality from the DSM.
