Psychiatrists have decided that homosexuality is not a mental illness. I do not dispute this. On the other hand, how mentally normal homosexuals are is best illustrated by empirical evidence as in the section on the sexuality of homosexuals and this section.
In the early 1970s, when homosexuals and homophiles were attempting to persuade psychiatrists that homosexuality is not a mental illness, they portrayed homosexuals as mentally on par with heterosexuals. Nowadays, they blame so-called homophobia for heightened psychiatric problems among homosexuals. What happened? Start by reading a review of some recent research evaluating the mental health of homosexuals and bisexuals. A glossary is provided for those who may be unfamiliar with psychiatric terminology.
