Skip to comments.Psychiatrist courts controversy, says homosexuality is unnatural
Posted on 01/29/2014 7:30:19 AM PST by James C. Bennett
Former president of the Indian Psychiatric Society Dr Indira Sharma has courted controversy by claiming that homosexuality is unnatural, a statement made three days ago at an annual meet of psychiatrists.
The LGBT community has brought "talk of sex to the roads", she told Times of India. "Heterosexuals don't talk about sex. It's a private matter," she told Times of India.
The report quoted a psychiatrist who attended the summit as saying Sharma's speech took a condescending approach towards homosexuals. Sharma denied to TOI that she called for "homo clubs" to be shut down.
She said her speech was about homosexuals who were uncomfortable about their sexuality and wanted to change their sexual orientation. "She added that those comfortable with their orientation should be made aware that their behaviour was causing a lot of uneasiness in society," the report said.
Sharma, who teaches at Banaras Hindu University, reportedly stirred a hornet's nest at last year's annual meeting too, when she suggested that early marriage for women was advisable.
Crazy that saying homosexuality isn’t natural causes controversy.
Society decides what is natural and normal.
Attitudes are generally swinging away from this man’s opinion.
Yes, I said “swinging” deliberately.
Obvious truth is obvious.
Uh...the PLUMBING defines that it is NOT NATURAL!!!
It’s as natural as trying to fly an airplane with both wings on the same side.
I nominate him for Surgeon General .
The sole purpose of a species is to procreate. Given natural selection, homosexuals should be extinct unless they can find other ways to propogate their lifestyle.
NBC’s director of entertainment, a homosexual himself, is ordering a program from ellen degenerat since all the other homosexual shows fell.
Suprised the homsexual all obama news channel is not talking about this.
That’s a ‘her’.
Speaking truth to ... perversion.
We must never lose sight of the truth that we are not wrong in opposing homosexuality; homosexuals are wrong in promoting it.
Well, duh. Anyone who prefers the septic system over the babymaker is insane.
We don’t determine what is right or natural by taking a poll.
If sodomy were natural, the human species would not exist. The doctor is correct.
The doctor who spoke was a woman.
What is unnatural about a man putting his penis in another man’s anus? It is as natural as a polar bear riding a bicycle at the equator.
Homosexuality is an unnatural choice. It is a choice, no quesstion! When a man is born a man, only his arrogance will make him not act like a man.
a woman, not man
Well, he has studied at the foot of a master
She has a PhD in Forensic Medicine....smarter than 99.9999999999999% of the pro-homosexual “journalists” who will cover this story.
**Society decides what is natural and normal.**
Glad you put the “hah” at the end of your post.
God decides what is natural and normal.
There are some of us who believe the Invisible Sky Wizard doesn’t really care.
Universal rules were put into place for us to follow or not to our own advantage or detriment.
“Marriage” is whatever everyone agrees it is. That makes it law.
I don’t see why lawyers aren’t pushing polygamy more. The complications in law would bring in all kinds of new divorce-related business.
God determines all morality...when society turns away from God you get the problems we are experiencing today and getting worse rapidly. The fallacy that man creates morality is what gets us into trouble. Justification is an interesting thing to consider...every human MUST justify their thoughts and behavior...without exception. Even the insane must justify. The reason for this is because God already instilled right and wrong in us...His laws. So, justification is our human attempts to conform to those laws (we do not even have to have an awareness of God for this).
Your “God” is not MY God.
Welcome to America, where we’re free to choose.
Thank you, Tom Jefferson.
Heterosexuality is the norm for the animal kingdom. Consider the consequences for that kingdom if the norm were to suddenly shift to homosexual behavior.
It’s not normal for a member of ANY species to behave in a manner that would lead to that species going EXTINCT if that behavior was practiced by a large percentage of that species.
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD. Isaiah 55 8
But it’s a free country.
It is obviously unnatural, pervertedly so. It is also part of the cycle of pedophilia. But, the culture destroying left has intimidated the world into accepting homosexuality as normal, harmless and cute. Bravo to anyone who stands up against all the leftist filth.
Where’s Captain Obvious when you need him? Hanging out with Captain Hindsight?
I prefer to think for myself as to what is natural and normal.
One object lesson comes from my Navy son who spend his naval career flying around in P3 aircraft.
He called us one day when he was overseas but he couldn't say where he was. The phone he called from, however, had a number ... and that number told me he was on the ground in Saudi Arabia.
My son told me more later about being there. One event was that his arab hosts invited he and his buddies to go to Friday ceremonies where they were given front row seats. That ceremony turned out to be the standardized religous execution of locals ... and ... bloody-area ... front row seats were for infidels.
What needs to be realized here is that there are religious nuts everywhere.
How would you like to live in that "society"?
He is, there is only one God...anything else is a false idol. You can argue with that till you are blue in the face but you cannot change that reality.
By the way, God gave you the freedom to choose, not Thomas Jefferson...Jefferson was just a man, not a God.
"Heterosexuals don't talk about sex. It's a private matter,"
Saw an Indian Dr pin an entire staff to the wall over homosexuality in a patient last month. Took them to task for not treating the mental disorder as well as the physical disorder.
The American Psychiatric Association classified homosexuality as a mental disorder until they changed their minds in 1973.
Were they wrong then, or are they wrong now?
Either way, we see they have no credibility.
Thanks. That explains things.
Once the Queer gene is discovered and can be pin pointed, the fetus can be aborted
Evolution makes clear that man and woman evolved to perform two separate sexual functions.
The Bible makes clear that man and women were made by God to perform two separate sexual functions.
Therefore, in either case, there is no logical support for homosexuality. It is an abnormal condition.
While it may be ‘natural’ to be born with a physical, or let’s say a mental defect (like homosexuality), it certainly is not ‘normal.’
Homosexuality is not normal.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: LGBT people suffer from a mental disorder. Their LGBT proclamations should serve as a first step toward treatment.
“Universal rules were put into place for us to follow or not to our own advantage or detriment.”
Put in place by who?
Our founding fathers derived their concept of individual rights (”Natural Law”) from John Locke and the concept that life, liberty and property were granted by the Creator, that man was endowed by the Creator to have these rights, therefore, rights granted by the Creator could not be legitimately taken away by man. Rights granted by man can be taken away by man.
So, absent the Creator, we have no “Natural Rights” and what rights we do have are bestowed by man.
I understand your point, but I agree with his statement.
Meet a homosexual for the first time and within 5-10 minutes, somehow they will bring up the fact they are homosexual.
Homosexuals are all about their sexuality as if it defines the very core of their being. I think what was being said was heterosexuals don’t go around talking about their sexuality, whereas homosexuals do.
She's right again.
She's talking from the Indian context.
Yes. We all know that is very likely to happen. We should rely on the views of a psychiatrist from India!
India recently passed or re-affirmed a law against homosexual acts. I don’t know the details but basically nothing public, no proselytizing etc. Of course the fags freaked out. It is 100% condemned and loathed in India, has been for thousands of years.
Doesn’t matter where she’s from.
She’s telling the truth.
