Oh this is swell. It's going to screw up already screwed up people even more.
It's called brainwashing.
I found it physically impossible to get my head that far up may A$$
It's a little difficult to see how social justice issues tie into my little OCD problem.
I guess I could liberate my inner clean freak and do free day work for oppressed GBTLs.
In other words, brainwashing...

"It's called brainwashing."
That is exactly what it is.
These gay 'enlightened' LIBERALS have WAY too much time on their hands. They truly need to GET A LIFE!!!
Looks like the truth has finally gotten out to at least some degree, that psychiatry has never proved homosexuality to be 'normal' behavior.
The infiltration of the 'professional' medical and scientific associations by homosexual activists was ( and continues to be ) part of a well planned and well financed campaign to redefine homosexuality as normal. They started by infiltrating the American Psychiatric Association, with the goal removing homosexuality from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).
Make no mistake, the homosexual activists knew exactly what they were doing in the days leading up to the removal of homosexuality from the DSM. Once they had control of the American Psychiatric Association, all the other 'professional' organizations ( such as the American Psychological Association, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the National Mental Health Association, etc.) fell in line and now accept, and march to, the APA's pro-homosexual party line. Click here (then scroll down the page to "The American Academy of Pediatrics") for a list of other pro-homosexual 'professional' associations that toe each others' homosexual agenda lines.
Forcing the removal of homosexuality from the DSM was the homosexual community's greatest achievement. It permitted them to claim that "homosexuality is normal" and set the stage to present this "normalcy" to the general public via a well planned media campaign ( outlined in 'The Overhauling of Straight America' ), and to kids in the public schools via Kevin Jennings' GLSEN. Kids as young as kindergarten age are now being indoctrinated with "homosexuality is normal" propaganda.
It wasn't science, but rather pro-homosexual activism that was, and continues to be, the primary force behind policy changes and the politically correct statments made by the APA and the majority of the other "professional" medical and scientific organizations.
For documentation of homosexual activism in both the APA's and the AAP, see the following replies in scripter's "Homosexual Agenda: Categorical Index of Links (Revision 1.1)" thread:

I know there are good, rational, professional psychologists out there but every one I have met who is a psychologist or was studying to be one, seemed to need the most tratment.
I have a friend who has a Masters in psychology from LSU. I think his last job was as a locksmith and before that a computer tech. At 38, the poor guy is so messed up. It didn't help that he bought deep into the liberal indoctrination hook, line and sinker.
I have been a Ph.D. psychologists for more than 15 years, and have seen all sorts of left-wing nonsense from others in the field. This Psy.D. character(a non-research based degree)is sadly typical.
It diminishes the respectability of our field when psychologists promote blatantly political agendas that lack empirical support. Technically, one could say that such behavior is unethical, but that will never fly with the APA.
There trying to get you anyway they can..............
Two psychologists meet on the street...
Psycologist#1: Hey, how'm I doing?
Psycologist#2: You're fine, how'm I?
Isn't that an oxy moron?
I don't think it's an oxymoron, but it is on the official list from the Department of Redundancy Department.
LOL! Does that have anything to do with "Ni!"?
I don't know what "Ni" is. I think the "Department of Redundancy Department" was one of the many "asides" and throw-away lines on one of the old "Firesign Theatre" records which some of us funnelled into our drug-addled brains in the late 60s, early 70s. I have, of course, reformed or I probably wouldn't be here (or anywhere else for that matter) but some of the brain synapses seem to have been permanently altered.
Thanks for the post with all the links. Helps tremendously!
So where's the chapter on the correct use of beads and rattles?
See there? Those "English As A Second Language" classes did help after all!
So much for the "science" of psychology. These people are harder to take seriously with every passing day.
"our theories must be embraced tentatively, as metaphors, not reified as truth or normalcy." - except, that is, for the theories of Liberation Psychology, which must be swallowed whole. Right?
The Knights who say NI. From Monty Python and the Holy Grail!
Voice over: Meanwhile, King Arthur and Bedevere, not more than a swallow's flight away, had discovered something.
Knights of Ni: Ni! Ni! Ni! Ni! Ni! Ni!
Arthur: Who are you?
Knight of Ni: We are the Knights who say..... "Ni"!
Arthur: (horrified) No! Not the Knights who say "Ni"!
Knight of Ni: The same.
Other Knight of Ni: Who are we?
Knight of Ni: We are the keepers of the sacred words: Ni, Ping, and Nee-womm!
Other Knight of Ni: Nee-womm!
Arthur: (to Bedevere) Those who hear them seldom live to tell the tale!
Knight of Ni: The knights who say "Ni" demand..... a sacrifice!
Arthur: Knights of Ni, we are but simple travelers who seek the enchanter who
lives beyond these woods.
Knights of Ni: Ni! Ni! Ni! Ni! Ni! Ni! Ni! Ni! Ni!
Bedevere: No! Noooo! Aaaugh! No!
Knight of Ni: We shall say "Ni" to you... if you do not appease us.
Arthur: Well what is it you want?
Knight of Ni: We want.....
Arthur: A WHAT?
Knights of Ni: Ni! Ni!! Ni! Ni!
Arthur; No! No! Please, please, no more! We will find you a shrubbery.
Knight of Ni: You must return here with a shrubbery... or else you will never
pass through this wood... alive.
Arthur: O Knights of Ni, you are just and fair, and we will return with a
Knight of Ni: One that looks nice.
Arthur: Of course!
Knight of Ni: And not too expensive.
Knight of Ni: Noowwwww.... GO!
Arthur: O Knights of Ni. We have brought you your shrubbery. May we go now?
Knight of Ni: Yes, it is a good shrubbery. I like the laurels particularly.
But there is one small problem....
Arthur: What is that?
Knight of Ni: We are now no longer the Knights Who Say "Ni"!
Other Knights of Ni: Ni! Shh! Shh!
Knight of Ni: We are now the Knights who say "Ekky-ekky-ekky-ekky-z'Bang, zoom-Boing, z'nourrrwringmm".
Other Knight of Ni: Ni!
Knight of Ni: Therefore, we must give you a test.
Arthur: What is this test, O Knights of.....
Knights who 'til recently said "Ni"?
Knight of Ni: Firstly, you must find....
Arthur: Oh not another shrubbery!!
Knight of Ni: (excitedly) THEN... Then, when you have found the shrubbery,
you must place it here, beside this shrubbery, only slightly
higher, so we get the two-level effect with a little path
running down the middle.
Other Knights of Ni: A path! A path! A path! Shh, shhh. Ni! Ni!
Knight of Ni: Then, when you have found the shrubbery, you must cut down the
mightiest tree in the forest...
Wiiiiiithh.... A HERRING!
I perhaps misspoke - I didn't mean to imply that you were in need (or ever had been) of ESL classes. It was self-directed and a reflection of my amazement that I'd retained any of what I was taught through the many years of sacrifice my parents made for those good Catholic schools.
I know a mechanic who, after getting divorced and cleaned out by his ex, went back to college and got a degree in psychology and then moved back to Mississippi from California to pursue a masters.
Since I don't know any of you personally, I'll share this:
The two times in my life when I needed someone to talk to (one unexpected divorce that blind-sided my life & dealing with the untimely death of my best girlfriend of 20+ years) I used a woman who has a Christian-based therapy practice. She never ONCE mentioned "God" to me, but she totally held ME accountable for getting through my crisis periods and getting ON with my life.
When I've talked to others about their therapy experiences, almost ALL of them went to the same person for years and years and were really not held accountable for the chitty things that had happened to them in Life, some of which clearly were their own doing through the dumb, emotionally-based decisions they made.
Simply amazing to me, but it clearly shows you that:
a. There are some really bad therapists out there;
b. It's easy to milk money out of people if you keep on telling them "It's not YOUR fault, poor kitten!"
c. I was lucky and blessed to find someone decent to help me sort through things.
Buyer beware, I guess? LOL!
The APA must be outlawed from all serious science.
They need to be marginalized like a freakshow homosexual pride parade.
Perhaps, then, you should have said that those "English as a Second Language" classes didn't help YOU at all, or at the most helped somewhat, in your 'good' Catholic school?
It appears that the APA is doing a good job of marginalizing itself with each passing day.
Of course! (see post 27. the first law of homosexuality) Every 'homosexual' must be considered, and treated as, a child molester.
The third law of homosexuality:
Any exposure of children to homosexual behavior is child abuse
Yes, that is a given. But doesn't the essay offer a wonderful example of what many would indentify as "Psycho-babble."
It is also a good illustration of the fact that in modern America, people who have crossed the line between sanity and insanity, can still claim to be experts in their chosen fields.
The social history of the West is replete with examples of how important a perception of normal sex-roles are to human happiness. But this woman obviously believes that by hurling vague concepts around in a pretentious manner, she can negate that reality--and make that negation a cause worth inviting malpractice suits over!

You betcha. Look into any homosexual or lesbian's past and you'll find "stuff" that turned the tide. Never mind the Trans People and Crossdressers.
That's what the Soviets used to do.
And the queers are already doing that -- by taking homosexuality off the list of disorders, when it is obviously disordered conduct, then labeling normal people "homophobic" if they think what queers do is sick and wrong.
It appears that the APA is doing a good job of marginalizing itself with each passing day.
The fall, 2004 issue of the APA's Division 44 newsletter, includes an essay by Judith M. Glassgold, Psy.D. urging her colleagues to think of psychology as a liberationist tactic to fight against social oppression and for social justice.
Writing in "In dreams begin responsibilities': Psychology, agency and activism," Glassgold suggests that therapists must make psychology " a liberation experience, to be among those who offer solutions to problems of social justice."
psychologists to adopt the philospohy of Liberation Psychology (Martin-Baro, 1994), which is rooted in ideologies from Latin and South American countries.
Psychologists must reject seeing individual personal
and be willing to see these problems
as the consequences of social injustice, says Glassgold. Psychotherapists must revise deterministic theories of social issues and "incorporate contextualist models that better explain concepts such as social
power, freedom, agency , and resistance
psychologists must view the world as a n
place, and they must resist efforts of outside forces to label them. The goal should be to "create new meanings" and "social definitions" in order to liberate others from social structures that define what is normal or abnormal
Glassgold believes that any system that says one
identity is normal and others are not, is oppressive and must be resisted. "Systems that attempot to define what is ' normal
' are systems that attempt to limit human potential. ...our theories must be embraced tentatively, as metaphors, not reified as truth or normalcy
"We must focus on making psychology and psychotherapy more than just a Band-aid for broader social problems, but as an intrinsic part of social justice and personal
There. Much better.
PS. If anyone had any doubts about the worthlessness of modern psychology...
Isn't it oppressive to suggest it is not acceptable to define some behaviors as normal and others not? Oh, wait, we are only supposed to embrace her theory tentatively.
If Glassgold believes that we should not reify her theories as truth then that means we can throw this one in the crapper, eh?
There is no way to understand human psychology without understanding the human spirit. Since most psychologists reject the spiritual realm altogether, they are hamstrung before they begin. No wonder all they have left is mental masturbation such as this article represents.
