“Boy Meets Girl”: Love Story or Mental Illness?

15 December 1973 – The American Psychiatric Association declares that homosexuality is not a form of mental illness. I find it interesting that the Association has never made the same declaration about heterosexuality. Given the multiple calamities associated with heterosexual relationships in the United States, including unhappiness, boredom, adultery, divorce, Sandra Bullock movies, Dr. Phil, and the deranged fantasies that attend Valentine’s Day, I suppose that psychiatrists are reluctant to deny something that is so painfully obvious – namely, that heterosexuals are clearly insane. Perhaps the same crackpots who think it possible to “pray away gay” can be enlisted to help “cure” heterosexuals with a similarly vacuous slogan – something like “don’t date a straight.”
