Easy way to fight back

Here’s an easy and safe thing to do: Just use your anonymous email account to send the pictures below to both the American Psychiatric and Psychological Associations. You’ll need to put these pictures into the body of your email rather than attach them. That way the recipient will see them right away. Also, include text in your email, in case they have images turned off. The text can just say:

Each day 30 to 150 American teens realize they’re attracted to younger children.
Almost half will consider suicide.
APA’s response: Ignore them or threaten prosecution.
Implied message: Just do it!

Source of stats:
About 11,000 children are born in the U.S. every day.
Up to 3% of males are preferentially attracted to younger children, according to DSM 5.
An internet study found 85% of people attracted to children remember first having these feelings when under age 18, and 45% considered suicide (http://b4uact.org/science/survey/01.htm).


Imagine if just a few hundred people did this, so that suddenly the “professionals” got deluged by these images and messages from hundreds of different addresses. They’d at least take notice. Here are the addresses to send your email to. They cover the relevant public relations and public policy offices:

apa@psych.org, pracmarket@apa.org, public.affairs@apa.org, ppo@apa.org, publicinterest@apa.org

Tell everyone you know to do this. Post this message at every discussion board you can. Easy and safe. Takes just a few minutes.

It’s time to fight back. Help make these go viral.

Both APAs have just released press releases in response to right wing fundamentalist complaints that the new DSM 5 classifies pedophilia as a sexual orientation. The press releases ignore the mental health of people with the diagnosis and instead advocate their prosecution—an interesting approach for so-called mental health organizations.
