Word is out that the American Psychological Association has appointed Kenneth Zucker and Ray Blanchard to the Sexual and Gender Identity Disorders working group to help revise the DSM-V. This means that two men who are notorious for their dislike of women with HBS (formerly refered to as transsexualism) will play a major role in defining how those people are viewed by the psychiatric community.
Simply put, this is an outrage.
Zucker has a long history of trying to use what is referred to as "reparative therapy" to bully male children who exhibit early signs of possible HBS into accepting a male identity. And Blanchard is notorious for his ridiculous theories that try to classify all transsexuals as either homosexual or autogynephillic, as well as his notorious comments that post-op transsexuals are men without penises. His theories are a direct attack on the concepts behind HBS.
Putting these men on this group is a direct slap at women with HBS, and an outrage. There appears to be little balance to this panel, and it looks like it may be a much longer time before any real progress is made towards a more accurate view of HBS.
