"Its not revolutionary... it basically puts the Psychological establisments view on treating homosexuality BACK where it was in the 1970s and prior."

Not really. Back before DSM IV, all homosexuals were considered to be in need of treatment. All the APA has said here is that those who are in distress about their sexuality should be able to receive treatment of a type with which they agree. It is very different from the APA saying that homosexuals are mentally ill and all need treatment.

True, they are saying if you don't want treatment we won't force it on you.... but then again, with the exception of Nazi Germany, I don't recall homosexuals being rounded up and put in re-education camps.
