The APA Is Not Only Bias, But Unpunctual As Well

DSM 5 Keeps Missing Its Deadlines | Psychology Today

Classification

 

The DSM V was scheduled to come out this year. The APA had already put this off for a year from last year. Now, they are saying it will be published in 2013. From what I have read from drafts, there are some pretty outlandish labels from Transvestic Fetishism, to Sensory Processing Disorder. A man who likes to wear women’s clothes is classified as a parapheliac, and is in the same category as pedophiles and zoophiles (people that have romantic relationships with animals). It is time for a REAL revision of the DSM, or to simply leave it in the archaic, stigmatizing past.
