Progressive. Queer. Feminist. Opinionated.

Well, this explains a lot!

Pentagon Lists Homosexuality As Disorder:

A Pentagon document classifies homosexuality as a mental disorder, decades after mental health experts abandoned that position.


The document, called a Defense Department Instruction, was condemned by medical professionals, members of Congress and other experts, including the American Psychiatric Association.


Well, thank goodness for that, at least.

Still, I think this is a Freudian slip, in a way. Someone's letting his/her true feelings show!


P.S

There were 726 military members discharged under the "don't ask, don't tell" policy during the budget year that ended last Sept. 30. That marked the first year since 2001 that the total had increased. The number of discharges had declined each year since it peaked at 1,227 in 2001, and had fallen to 653 in 2004.


Ah-yup.
