Are homosexuality and transexuality extreme mental disorders?

Many people believe that homosexuality and transexuality are mental disorders and “sinful” acts, as God does not condone them. Some parents are going to the ends saying that it is unethical to even teach or talk about such things in schools.
– Are these things titled as a mental disorder primarily because of the Bible teachings? Homosexuality and the like were a common practice before and after the Bible was assembled together.
– Why would homosexuality and transexuality be considered as such? Do you agree with it? If not, what would you classify it as?
Are they forms of major past life regression? Do these people choose to be these things? Are they born like this? Is it sinful? An outcry for attention? Would therapy and medication make it all better?
What do you think it all means, or does it mean anything?
I’m only curious as to what people think, as where I live it is mostly extreme Southern Bapist who can’t even handle thinking about such things. All I get is, “Read the bible”
Sorry to disappoint you, Tammy Dee, I’m not anywhere near insulting anyone.
Reading questions fully comes in handy later.
To all of you who say it was dropped decades ago by Mental Health Experts, perhaps some of you don’t remember the whole Pentagon incident earlier this year, where the whole “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy comes from?
And my standing about this subject is not at all represented by this question, sorry to say.

  1. homosexuality and heterosexuality and bisexuality and transgenderality are not mental disorder. they are all normal beings.

  2. no, of course it’s not a mental disorder. those who consider to be are either ignorant and fearful, or extreme right-wing conservatives who “use” the bible to justify the fact that they are nothing but bigots.
    the “disorder” of stupidity and ignorance can be cured by education and opening of a closed mind.

  3. Some people think of it as mental disorders. The most important thing is what do you think about this. Your view on homosexuality may or may not help the gay population. For as long as you respect other people, gay or straight, you don’t need to know your answer.

  4. I don’t know. Maybe they are all either one or the other or they are all both or all are one of each. I don’t know.They are sinful. They are abominations to God

  5. No. Forty years ago, the American Psychologists Association said it was. A couple of decades later they voted to change that position, saying it is not. No, mental health and disorders are not really established by votes. It shows a reflection of changing atttiudes towards people who have certain behaviors and/or personalities.

  6. If your curious as you say why not look it up on the web instead of insulting people. Transsexuals are the only people on the planet that are tested and certified sane.
    Gender disphoria is a term used for insurance purposes, The proved facts about Transsexuals is that there brain is of the opposite gender to there sex organs. Now if you were born without legs, would you like people, like you and some other assholes who but there insults in as answers, mocking you and telling you that you’ll go to hell if you have a doctor correct that defect.

  7. YES IT IS A PSYCHOLOGICAL DISORDER. THESE PEOPLE HAVE EXTREME SELF HATRED ISSUES. LET ME EXPLAIN. MANY OF THEM FOR WHATEVER REASON DO NOT LIKE THEMSELVES. SO THEY TRY AND REINVENT THEMSELVES SO THAT PEOPLE WILL NEVER KNOW THE REAL THEM THAT THEY FIND SO REPULSIVE.
    JUST A LITTLE STATISTIC HERE 75% OF GAY MEN HAVE BEEN SEXUALLY ABUSED AS CHILDREN. I WOULD TAKE THAT INTO ACCOUNT.
    BUT AS I WAS SAYING THEY DO NOT LIKE THEMSELVES SO MUCH THEY TRY AND ACTUALLY CHANGE ONE OF THE MOST SELF DEFINING THINGS A PERSON CAN HAVE. THEIR GENDER. IT’S LIKE WHEN THEY LEAVE THEIR OLD SELF BEHIND THEY LEAVE THAT WITH THEIR GENDER. THAT DISORDER IS WELL DOCUMENTED IN THINGS SUCH AS NARCISSISTIC PERSONALITY DISORDER,HISTRIONIC PD, SOCIOPATHY, AND ANTISOCIAL PERSONALITY DISORDER. THESE PEOPLE JUST TAKE IT A STEP FURTHER AND CHANGE THEIR GENDER.
    THE REASON I KNOW AN EXTENSIVE AMOUNT ABOUT THIS IS THIS. MY BEST FRIEND JUST DECIDED TO COME OUT OF HOMOSEXUALITY YESTERDAY ACTUALLY. AND HE HAS ALL THREE DISORDERS ON TOP OF BI POLAR. BUT ANYWAYS HIS DAD HAS A DEGREE IN PSYCHOLOGY WE HAVE HAD MANY LONG TALKS ABOUT IT. I ALSO HAVE AN EXTENSIVE AMOUNT OF KNOWLEDGE ON ABNORMAL PSYCHOLOGY. THAT IS WHAT I AM GOING INTO.
    THE REASON I KNOW IT IS A CRY FOR HELP, WELL FOR ONE THING I KNOW TONS OF GAY PEOPLE BECAUSE OF MY BEST FRIEND. HE USED TO WORK AT A GAY CLUB AND HIS EX BOYFRIEND ALSO .WE KNEW THE OWNERS AND PRETTY MUCH EVERYONE.ALL AGES. YET THEY ARE ALL UNHAPPY IT SEEMS. EVEN EX BOYFRIENDS ROOMATE SUCCESSFUL 32 YEARS OLD GOOD JOB. GET’S HIGH EVERY DAY IT IS CALLED SELF MEDICATING. I KNOW THEY ARE HURTING THE SAME WAY WHEN U LOOK AT SOMEONE ADDICTED TO DRUGS AND ALCOHOL ARE CRYING FOR HELP. THEY ARE HURTING THEMSELVES AND THEIR BEHAVIORS ARE SELF DESTRUCTIVE.
    I DONT KNOW IF U KNEW THIS BUT GAY PEOPLE HAVE PROBLEMS WITH BLEEDING FROM THEIR ANUS AND THEY CANNOT CONTROL THEIR BOWEL MOVEMENTS. I KNOW THIS FROM MY BEST FRIEND BEING TO VOLUNTARY WITH INFORMATION.
    BUT ANYWAYS LOOK I HAVE KNOWN TO MANY GAY PEOPLE AND THREE MEN WHO I WAS VERY CLOSE TO FROM ALL DIFFERENT WALKS OF LIFE. MY BEST FRIEND,HIS EX BOYFRIEND WHO CAME OVER FROM SWEDEN,AND THEIR ROOMATE WHO GREW UP WITH TWO PARENTS AND IS ALL SUCCESSFUL YET GETS HIGH EVERYDAY.
    I WILL PROMISE THERE ARE THINGS THE GAY COMMUNITY DOES NOT WANT TO LEAVE THE GAY COMMUNITY, AND REACH STRAIGHT PEOPLE’S EARS. THEY LIKE TO KEEP THE HIDDEN ALCOHOL PROBLEMS AND DRUG ABUSE TO THEMSELVES. BUT I HAVE BEEN IN. AND I HAVE SEEN FIRST HAND.
    AND NO U ARE NOT BORN THAT WAY. THE ONLY CHOICE I BELIEVE A LOT OF GAY PEOPLE DO NOT HAVE IS WHETHER THEY WERE SEXUALLY ABUSED OR WHETHER THEIR CHILDHOODS WERE BAD. BUT THEY CAN CHOOSE TO SEEK PROFESSIONAL HELP WHICH THEY DO NOT DO CAUS THEY THINK IT’S NORMAL TO DO THE THINGS THEY DO. I MEAN MOST OF SOCIETY IS OUT THERE EVERY NIGHT SELF MEDICATING THEIR EMPTINESS. JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONLY ONE THAT CAN FILL IT.
    MY ADVICE READ UP ON THOSE PERSONALITY DISORDERS EXTENSIVELY AND U WILL UNDERSTAND. EXTENSIVELY. AND LOOK AROUND AT ALL THE PEOPLE THAT SEEM HAPPY BUT WHAT DOES THEIR BEHAVIOR REALLY SHOW.
    I LOVE YOU HOPE I COULD HELP.

  8. Good question and I could go forever but here it is in a nutshell.
    Any time something else or someone else can be blamed for the faults of a society, they will be. Its a whole lot easier than accepting blame and responsibility yourself.
    The hate and intolerance that disgraces our country perpetrated by so call ‘christian’ cultists is excused because it is done in the name of “God”. Exactly how is that any different than the nutcases blowing themselves and now thousands of innocent victims (including our service men and women) into smithereens? The terrorists will tell you that they are killing the infidel in the name of “God”, and that excuses their horrific behavior.
    Any “christian” who hates in the name of God, is no different and deserves the same fate.

  9. Actually the medical terms have changed over the years. I do not agree with what the Bible says. It’s who and what I am. As to past lives, I guess anything is possible. I just know I’m very comfortable being a woman. As for therapy let me share this:
    I was molested as a child – 9 or 10 – and I thought it was actually the “right” thing for a boy to do with a man. At least that’s what he told me. He took pics of me in very graphic situations. Later the courts found out, thru my folks, and he went to prison as a child molester and I became a victim! Two years of talking with a shrink and no change in what was going on with me. I never saw “him” again that’s for sure. But boys, friends from school, would ask me to play games with them in the woods “out back” like “damsel in distress” and “kidnapped girl” and “housewife”, all the while they were molesting me!! And I let them! Kids!
    I don’t think it means anything unless you want it to. I decided a long time ago that what I do IS a homosexual thing and I don’t care, I just like men. Now I live en-femme 24/7 and I love it!
    I still read the “good book” but I also wear boy-cut shorts.

  10. There is not ONE nationally or internationally credible medical organization that supports your view. The American associations of Psychiatry and Psychology dropped the diagnosis of homosexual decades ago. The World Health Organization removed it from their definitions at the same time.
    The only pseudo-scientific institutes that claim this are not accredited or recognized except by fringe religious elements.
    So no, it’s not a disease, therefore there cannot be a cure; QED.
    People are born with their sexual orientation, and although brainwashing (sometimes referred to as reparitive therapy) can temporarily cause those subjected to it to follow the outward behaviors of a straight person, the are proven NOT to change the underlying orientation.
    Do not rest your questions on junk science.

  11. People need to take God out of the argument. The Bible says alot of things that aren’t accurate or practiced in today’s world.
