Texas GOP endorses 'reparative therapy' for gays

http://news.msn.com/us/texas-gop-end...erapy-for-gays

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — The Texas Republican Party now endorses so-called "reparative therapy" for gays, under a new platform given final approval at its annual convention Saturday.

The new anti-gay language never came up for debate before roughly 7,000 delegates ratified a Texas GOP platform that tea party groups succeeded in pushing further to the right, including winning a harder line on immigration.

One influential tea party group called Texas Eagle Forum had urged the party to support psychological treatments that seek to turn gay people straight. It comes after Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie last fall signed a law banning such therapies on minors, and California has a similar law.

The Fort Worth Convention Hall cheered when party leaders announced that Christie finished a distant 11th in a 2016 presidential straw poll.

"There's a very, very small group of people who want to keep the party in the past. We were here today to try to pull the party into the future," said Rudy Oeftering, vice president of the gay conservative group Metroplex Republicans. "The only way the party can go into the future is to start listening to young people, to start listening to people who have gay family members."

Oeftering and allies had lined up to speak against the therapy language that had been added earlier this week. But they never got a chance to address delegates, because a parliamentary motion to approve the full platform was called first.

Under the new plank, the Texas GOP recognizes "the legitimacy and efficacy of counseling, which offers reparative therapy and treatment for those patients seeking healing and wholeness from their homosexual lifestyle."

The American Psychological Association and other major health organizations have condemned such counseling, which generally try to change a person's sexual orientation or to lessen their interest in engaging in same-sex sexual activity. The groups say the practice should not be used on minors because of the danger of serious psychological harm.

"The platform reflects what the people in the Republican Party have asked for, and that should be no surprise: family values, protection of marriage between one man and one woman and everything that goes along with that," said Jonathan Saenz, president of the conservative group Texas Values and a convention delegate.

Gay conservatives did come away with a rare victory at the convention: Winning the removal of decades-old language in the state party platform that states, "homosexuality tears at the fabric of society."

I think that's a good question.

If you think that everyone should pay for someone who was born a man but wishes to be a woman, why shouldn't you have to pay for someone who was "born" gay but wishes to be straight?

Oh no! Let's not offer people who seek help the ability to gain it when it comes to something that was correctly classified as a mental disease until the dumbasses pushed to have it dropped in the 60s/70s... New Dumbassocrat slogan - "if you think you are gay you must stay that way!"

It was classified as a disorder in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM)--not a disease. But yes this was removed due to political pressure--not for scientific reasons.

BTW, making "selfies" is now been listed as a disorder. Let's not forget that even drinking too much caffeine is called a disorder as well. Wonder, when this profession will classify those calling everything under the sun a disorder will be classified as a disorder.

Homosexuality was not viewed universally as a disorder at anytime in the 20th century. Rado, Freud, Socarides, Kinsey et al debated this across the decades even from the turn of the century.

There was an interim period where it was classified pathologically only if a person experienced unwanted homosexual urges that interfered with their leading a normal (hetero) life.

It wasn't removed from DSM until the mid/late 80s with DSM-III. I would suspect that the APA's feelings on the matter probably related to the current ebb of scientific thinking as well as changing social norms, but what isn't?

Even today, if you wanted to you could use something like "sexual disorder not otherwise specified".

Nope, it was removed due to political pressure.

BEP doesn't want to admit she got duped about the selfies disorder. But it is okay because she read it somewhere!

Quote:
Showing that far too many people don’t ever bother to check to see what kind of website they’re on, thousands of people tweeted and posted links to the fake news article. Nobody stopped for a minute to ask, “Hey, is this true? How come no other news website is reporting it?”

Don’t worry — taking too many selfies isn’t a mental disorder.

Selfies are photographs a person takes of oneself, usually with one’s mobile phone. They’ve become all the rage since the advent of smartphones which often have a camera facing the user. This makes taking a self-portrait in-the-moment easy to do.

The fake news article was published to a parody news website ala “The Onion” based in the Philippines called the Adobo Chronicles at the end of March 2014. It began:

"The American Psychiatric Association (APA) has officially confirmed what many people thought all along: taking ‘selfies’ is a mental disorder.

The APA made this classification during its annual board of directors meeting in Chicago. The disorder is called selfitis, and is defined as the obsessive compulsive desire to take photos of one’s self and post them on social media as a way to make up for the lack of self-esteem and to fill a gap in intimacy."

Thousands of people read the article, didn’t bother to understand they were reading a parody site, and then tweeted (or retweeted) and posted the link to their Facebook page. The social media mania effect then ensued.
