A Question about Sexual Disorders

boys_don27t_cry_movieFor my treatment of psychopathology class I’m doing a hypothetical case write-up abut gender identity disorder on Teena “Brandon Teena” Brandon using Boys Don’t Cry as my material for the write-up.

It got me thinking: I wonder how many of my more liberal readers would be upset knowing that being transgendered is considered a “sexual identity disorder”?  On the other side, how many of my more conservative readers would be upset that homosexuality is no longer considered a disorder by the American Psychological Association?

I don’t mean this as flame bait, I’m really just curious.
