Dr. Satinover, author of Homosexuality and the Politics of Truth, discussed the political agenda of the gay rights movement and its success in intimidating the American Psychiatric Association (APA) into removing homosexuality as a mental disorder in the DSM.
According to Satinover, Judd Marmor and homosexual activists inside the APA arranged to have outside gay activist organizations disrupt APA meetings to protest the listing of homosexuality as a mental disorder.
Dr. Satinover also notes that Dr. Evelyn Hooker's "bogus" research work on homosexuality and Alfred Kinsey's data were used to declare that homosexual behavior was no different than heterosexual behavior.
Yet, he observes, "Anyone who actually reads the studies examining the association between homosexuality and psychological disturbance will find a very strong association."
As a result of the removal of homosexuality from the DSM as a disordered condition, pro-gay mental health professionals are influencing court decisions including rulings on gay marriage, civil rights, and sexual orientation, notes Satinover.
Dr. Satinover says: "Like you and me, their sexuality is broken in a broken world. The notion that 'homosexuals' are in effect a 'different species' (different genes) is ludicrous beyond belief. There is not the slightest evidence for that as anyone who actually reads the studies (not reports on the studies) knows."
