“Depathologize!”: A follow-up. If I had to pick the top theme that sexologists and sexuality interest groups were discussing in the lead up to the proposed DSM changes, that would be it: Depathologize, depathologize, depathologize. From blogs to letters to editors of research journals, there have been demands that the DSM declare as officially normal various sexual phenomena, ranging from purely consensual situations (like transsexualism and BDSM) to those that motivate sexual offenses (such as pedophilia and hebephilia).
