You are doubtless aware that the DSM is the American Psychiatric Association's manual for defining mental illness.  LGBTs make a big point of reminding everyone that homosexuality was removed from the DSM some years back; it is clearly not a problem.  But the DSM is a highly culturally biased piece of work.   Homosexuality was not added to DSM until 1952.  And of course there was science to back this up as a mental disorder.  It also appears that DSM-II was adapted from a World War II military standard.
