This stuff makes me crazy.
More from the article:
“The DSM is now larger than ever, and it includes disorders such as “Obedience Defiance Disorder” (ODD), defined as refusing to lick boots and follow false authority. [snip]
You can also get diagnosed with “Hoarding Disorder” if you happen to stockpile food, water and ammunition, among other things. Yep, being prepared for possible natural disasters now makes you a mental patient in the eyes of modern psychiatry (and the government, too).”
Grieving a year after the death of a spouse can now trigger a recommendation for drugs due to “excessive grief”. Yet there is a serious move to accept things that are horrible:
* minimize sexual attraction to minors (pedophilia under a less offensive name) and act as if the attraction is OK, but only the rape is bad
* homosexuality in any regard is fine, it is only bad if you feel bad, and only the anxiety is treated, and conversion back to heterosexual is a crime in the offing
* considering yourself the wrong gender (I’m a girl, I want to be a guy) is now treated with hormones even in young children; children with “body dysmorphic disorder” aren’t counseled as to “why do you want to be the other gender” but “let’s give you hormones to change your per-adolescent body as you think it should be”
