    Your video on gender and homosexuality, I feel are not mental illnesses as this site claims “Mental Illness with Christ. Although homosexuality may be and I do believe it so to be a spiritual conflict, I do not believe they should be classified as mental illnesses as many gay and lesbians can function without medications or therapy. To us who suffer with “real ” emotional and mental issues, I would appreciate it if you took this video off this site.

      An interesting and relevant point. This is a site for those who have suffered a mental illness to share about what Christ means and has meant for them and to discuss topics related to mental illness and Christianity. This video relates to concepts of Gender and Sexual Identity. People can share anonymously. The DSM is a changing paradigm and made by men. “A mental illness is a psychiatric disorder that results in a disruption in a person’s thinking, feeling, moods, and ability to relate to others.” – this is just one definition. . . The DSM even states, “Moreover, although this manual provides a classification of mental disorders, it must be admitted that no definition adequately specifies precise boundaries for the concept of “mental disorder.” (emphasis mine) The concept of mental disorder, like many other concepts in medicine and science, lacks a consistent operational definition that covers all situations.”
