Same-Sex Attraction Disorder (SSAD)!

Two gay boys kissing - a picture of mental illness?

Two gay boys kissing.

I’d never heard of the bogus emotional disease, SSAD until tonight. What makes two men gay? You’d never guess on your own:

Weak masculine identity is easily identified and, in my clinical experience, is the major cause of SSAD in men. Surprisingly, it can be an outgrowth of weak eye-hand coordination which results in an inability to play sports well.

That would be a revelation to Dave Kopay and other gay men in sports (most of whom are sadly in the closet).

A simple-minded stereotype is given an extra dumb twist.

The terms Same-Sex Attraction Disorder enables Christian snake-oil salesmen in the ex-Gay movement to make their propaganda seem like science.

Even more insidious it gives gay men who are deep in the very back of the closet a term they can use for their sexuality other than gay, homosexual, queer. And medicalizing their sexuality probably lessens their guilt.

So very sad.


As a psychologist, I am less than enthralled with entries such as these. The thinking of the writer is so muddled, it is hard to know where to begin. What is the disorder? being attracted the same gender? inability to play sports?

Utter rubbish, gay is gay, you don’t get a choice to be or not to be. Its not a disorder or a disease, its not wrong, its a way of being and should be celebrated. This is such a prejudiced and archaic way of thinking, its barbaric. The same thinking that forced chemical castration on gay men.

S-s-so S-sad, and s-some nerve calling it a disorder! I don’t need the Ps-psuedo sh-shrink telling me why the cute guy in the checkout line gives me a woody, but not his girlfriend. Disorder no, Distraction definately!

What a sweet photo. (I’m a sucker for romance.) If it’s a disorder, this lesbian is gonna stay sick—and so’s my wife!

Silly shrinks. If it was a male shrink who coined that, I’d bet five bucks he was closeted.
