Hi All,
So it just came down the wire that the APA announced on May 1st its work groups for the new DSM-V. This includes the team who will review the "Gender Identity Disorder" criteria and ultimately make a determination
if GID should stay in the DSM.

OF GREAT CONCERN!

I am highly troubled that the naming of the committee includes two of the most staunchly neo-eugenic figures from Toronto's notorious Jurassic Clark. Kenneth Zucker (who will be acting as chair) and Ray Blanchard.
Blanchard was the original writer of the theory of "Autogynophelia", and Zucker is an adamant proponent of "repairative therapy" for gender non-conforming young people.

Action is needed immediately. People need to start to sound the alarms and raise red flags about the inappropriate choices that the APA has made. While some of the other member of the committee are known and progressive thinkers in regards to GID such as Peggy Cohen-Kettenis and Niklas Långström.  I am unfamiliar with many of the other names of the committee members.

I would urge everyone to review the APAs press release of the committee they have appointed, and start to gather information to begin a widespread lobbying effort.  The APA held its annual meeting over this last week, and no doubt that many of these committee members are already getting together to start formulating
their work plan.
