One thought on “How Homosexuality Got Kicked Out of the Official Book of Psychiatric Illnesses

  • September 29, 2018 at 9:17 am

    My book Don’t Feed the Narcissists! The Mythology and Science of Mental Health (www.nottrivialbook.com/narcissism) explains what mental illnesses are, how mental illnesses are classified, and how the Gay Liberation Movement succeeded in getting psychiatrists to recognize that homosexuality is not a mental illness. The book focuses in particular on narcissism. It explains that narcissists are people who think that they are great when they are not. In contrast, I talk about some truly great people in the book, including Frank Kameny, the astronomer who played a leading role in the campaign to get homosexuality stricken from the list of mental disorders.
