This is what happens when you treat wickedness as a mere psychological problem. He needs a spiritual perspective on life.

I remember when scientists (a group that used to include psychologists and climatologists) valued the scientific method. I guess that means I’m old.

How appropriate the quacks being run by SSADs. Both groups attempting to define every deviant behavior as normal.

Fake science at best, more like snake oil in reality. Psycho babble should be listed in the Yellow pages along with Palm and tea leaf readers.

Let me get this straight. The former president of the APA says he was the person who proposed the resolution to declassify homosexuality as a mental illness (without any scientific research) in the DSM...

““The first time it came up, and I was a member of [the] Council, this would have been, oh, 1975, because I remember that that’s when I made the resolution,” Cummings said. “I made the resolution that being gay was not a mental illness, that it was characterological. And it passed the Council of Representatives. And that was the first issue that came up. I also said with that, that the APA, if it passes this resolution, will also vote to continue research that demonstrates whatever the research demonstrates. Unbiased, open research. It was never done.””

But he’s now complaining that the APA doesn’t use the “Leona Tyler Principle” (which requires that all public positions of the APA be supported by scientific evidence)??

Seems to me he started the entire problem in the first place.

In other words, the inmates are running the asylum.

Have some more pills, cut your tallywacker off, and experiment in unusual sex acts, maybe you’ll feel better in the end.

If not, you can always pay for more counseling to repeat this vicious cycle. If the pills don’t kill you.
