Left-wing radical researchers label 'Homophobia' a mental disorder

World Net Daily is reporting:

If you think there might be something wrong with homosexuality, you most likely have a mental disorder, according to a recent study by a team of Italian researchers.

Discussing the study, lead researcher Emmanuele A. Jannini, M.D., stated: "After discussing for centuries if homosexuality is to be considered a disease, for the first time we demonstrated that the real disease to be cured is homophobia, associated with potentially severe psychopathologies."

That's right. The research team specifically found that "psychoticism," "immature defense mechanisms" and a "fearful attachment style" were associated with a greater "homophobic" attitude in individuals.

Award-winning journalist and author David Kupelian was not surprised by this new study, because he predicted exactly such developments in his latest book.

"In 'The Snapping of the American Mind,' I predicted that the current obsession of the loony left - which dominates the social sciences - with pathologizing conservatives and Christians as 'disordered' would only accelerate," Kupelian said. "A generation ago, people who engaged in homosexual acts were considered 'disordered' by the psychiatric and psychological professions. Today, simply recognizing homosexuality as disordered makes you disordered!"

Kupelian noted the homosexual activist movement pressured the American Psychiatric Association in the 1970s to remove homosexuality from its official list of disorders. More recently, in 2012, the APA removed "gender identity disorder" from its manual of mental disorders. Gender identity disorder had been the common diagnosis for transgender people.
