APA to correct [sic] manual: Pedophilia is not a ‘sexual orientation’ [the orientated decide that, not you - ask the LGBT community.]
"Pedophilia is not a “sexual orientation,” and erroneous [designed to be so] use of that phrase will be corrected soon in its new manual on mental illnesses [sic], the American Psychiatric Association said Thursday.
The APA’s statement came in response to media inquiries, including from The Washington Times, about an uproar on the Internet that the APA had designated pedophilia as a sexual orientation in its new Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, known as DSM-5 or DSM-V.
About a week ago, a blog called NeonTommy, produced at Annenberg Digital News at the University of Southern California, said the APA had drawn a “very distinct line” between pedophilia and pedophilic disorder in its new manual.
According to the DSM-5, pedophilia [not 'Pedophilic Disorder'] “refers to a sexual orientation or profession of sexual preference devoid of consummation, whereas pedophilic disorder is defined as a compulsion and is used in reference to individuals who act on their sexuality,” NeonTommy wrote.
The item was picked up and circulated on countless other Internet sites. Many bloggers bashed the APA for “mainstreaming” deviance [mmmwwhahaha] and capitulating [reality is just that] to pro-pedophile [sic] groups. Others tied [reconnected] it to gay issues — one wag [?] wrote that it was “time to change the LGBT letterhead to LGBT&P.”
The APA said in its statement that “‘sexual orientation’ [legal term] is not a term used in the diagnostic criteria for pedophilic disorder and its use in the DSM-5 text discussion is an error [sic] and should read ‘sexual interest.’ [reality; and means 'sexual orientation', in reality]”
“In fact, APA considers pedophilic disorder [but, not Paedophilia] a ‘paraphilia,’ not a ‘sexual orientation.’ This error [sic] will be corrected in the electronic version of DSM-5 and the next printing of the manual,” the organization said. The error appeared on page 698, said a spokeswoman.""

Statement of the American Psychological Association Regarding Pedophilia and the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5)
"A news release sent Oct. 30 on behalf of the American Family Association mischaracterized the position of the American Psychological Association with respect to pedophilia. The American Psychological Association does not classify mental disorders or publish the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, as the release incorrectly stated.
The American Psychological Association [science?] maintains that pedophilia is a mental disorder [psychiatry]; that sex between adults and children is always wrong [science?]; and that acting on pedophilic impulses is and should be a criminal act [science?]. The American Psychological Association has worked for many years to prevent child sexual abuse [science?] and will continue to do so."

Whopping Pedophilia 'Sexual Orientation' Error Sparks Common Sense Freakout
Tijdschr Psychiatr. 2014;56(3):196-200.
[Sexual disorders in the DSM-5].
In DSM-IV-TR, the subject of 'sexual and gender identity disorders' was dealt with in one chapter; in DSM-5, however, the subject is divided into three chapters, namely sexual dysfunctions , gender dysphoria, and paraphilic disorders.
To discuss the above-mentioned changes.
The one-chapter version in DSM-IV is compared with the three-chapter contribution in DSM-5 and the differing criteria are tested for their clinical utility.
There are minor changes in the chapter 'sexual dysfunctions'. The content of the chapters on 'gender dysphoria' and 'paraphilic disorders' differs substantially from the content of the sections on these subjects in DSM-IV. In the section on gender dysphoria the term 'sex' has been replaced by 'gender' and the term 'identity disorder' has been dropped. With regard to paraphilias, a distinction is now made between a paraphilia and a paraphilic disorder. The DSM-5 makes a new distinction between pathology (paraphilic disorder) on the one hand and other unusual or unconventional non-pathological sexual behavior on the other hand. In the DSM-5 the highly relevant clinical concept 'hypersexuality' has still not been incorporated as a separate category.
In the DSM-5 many parts of the chapters on sexual disorders have been substantially revised."
