    Calif. man sues doctor for listing homosexuality as a ‘chronic condition’


    The diagnosis was coded as 302.0, an archaic classification from The International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (commonly known as the ICD). Code 302.0 “homosexual behavior” was removed from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) in 1973.

    Moore is suing Dr. Elaine Jones of the Torrance Health Association, who last year defended her use of the description by saying that the medical community goes “back and forth” on whether or not homosexuality is considered a chronic condition.

    Well, I guess life could be considered a chronic condition too, according to some doctors. icon_wink.gif

    Along with chronic stupidity by some doctors, as Elaine Jones demonstrates.

    So, not only is she hopelessly out of date in her professional knowledge, but she is trying to blame the rest of the medical profession for her own ignorance.

    fixed.

    This was her way of writing "fag" onto medical records. Purposely falsifying medical records? I hope they take her license.

    An interesting point. I wonder how this bigoted doctor would answer that request?

    Acute means severe. Chronic means persistent and constantly recurring. There is a difference.

    It should be removed and replaced with a new diagnosis: "Pansy-assed douchebaggery."

    For fuck's sake, just get a new doctor if you don't like the job your present doctor is doing.

    This is what sane people would do. White Liberals, however, suffer from a permanent and irreversibly fragile state of mind, mixed with blinding rage against non-existent entities.

    Whilst I myself would get a new doctor in this situation, I'm afraid I'd have to disagree with you: the majority of psychiatric associations in America have removed homosexuality from their list of mental disorders - so these "white pansy liberals" have a point: it's not just moral-contentions which are the issue here, it's scientific ones as well. We should be allowed to speak out against doctors who don't follow the code which the majority of psychiatric associations have set out (i.e. removing homosexuality from a list of mental disorders). Your comments are masochistic against your own sexuality and intellect to say the least.
