  1. Re: Why is Pedophilia Categorized as a Disorder?

    When an organization changes its stance on something, some people are quick to assume that it has "folded" under pressure. The same thing happened to President Obama when his view changed on marriage...

    Re: Gun Control and your stance

    This proves my point. Even without guns, disturbed individuals intent on taking lives will find a way, even without guns.

    Now, we are talking my language! I tend to play games still in the Alpha stage of development.

    My absolute favorite game is 7 Days to Die, a sandbox zombie-apocalypse survival game where one can...

    Gun Control and your stance

    I am curious to know where people on this forum stand on the current controversy of guns. As far as I can see, there is a large group of people who are trying to ban the ownership of a specific gun:...

    Re: Destruction of archaeological sites

    Personally, I think that anything ancient is valuable mostly because it's amazing (and I am a little bit of a hoarder). There are some things, however, that people probably don't want preserved,...

    Yes, but the changes are much more gradual in the past then they are currently. The changes that are happening right now are happening much faster than they should be.

    As of 2015, there were over 18,000 desalinization plants active in the world, so we are already using the technology. Unfortunately, desalinization is not very cost effective, and can be harmful to...

    In my opinion, there were no sanctions placed on IKEA because:

    Re: Another abortion debate opportunity.

    That is the point. The only one on whom an embryo/fetus/etc can be dependent is the mother. That is why it is her choice.



    Yes, my argument will fail. As long as the embryo/fetus/etc is not...

    In your eyes and my eyes, it is a conceived baby. Until science makes that distinction for lawmakers, we'll be at a stalemate to convince others.

    For heaven's sake, logic dictates that science has "weighed in." It is illegal to have an abortion after a specific time; ergo, science deems an unborn a "person" at that time. Now, if you want me to...

    If they saw a fetus as a person, abortion would not be legal.

  16. Re: Why is Pedophilia Categorized as a Disorder?

    It isn't just public pressure. The APA also evolves classifications over time as psychology learns new things. If it doesn't, we might as well go back to the 1800's where a woman experiencing...

    Re: Another abortion debate opportunity.

    I am aware that a fetus is not technically classified as a parasite, however, it fits all of the classifications.

    parasite: an organism that lives in or on another organism (its host) and benefits...
  18. Re: Why is Pedophilia Categorized as a Disorder?

    I suppose there is some public and political pressure. You make an excellent point. I would hope that the APA does its best to be free from that if psychology is ever to be a serious science.

    I do, as well. I just wish we could dispense with racial division, intolerance, religious fanaticism, and political correctness.

  22. Re: Why is Pedophilia Categorized as a Disorder?

    I don't believe this is true. The APA classifies any disorder so that it can be effectively treated. Psychology is still evolving and will continue to evolve as we learn more about the human mind.
