The year is 2010 and we finally have this.
APA Paraphilias Subworkgroup Agrees: Kinky is NOT a Diagnosis
It isn't even in the latest DSM yet. We are still dealing with kinky is a diagnoses at least according to the DSM still in use.
Seems some member of this website had an understanding mental health worker way back in 1970.
My usual expectation of the field of mental health is that it is slanted by the biases of the love of the sacred and the love of the normal. In other words it is a secular priesthood.
Do you feel most mental health workers are competent and understanding in the area AB/DL or are they incompetent and judgmental.
Seems some here have an insider view I'd like to here from them.
I could go into all the negative things I believe are a part of the mental health profession but I'll save that for later maybe.
