Rape, PMS & wanting sex too much—All proposed ‘mental disorders’ for Psychiatry’s billing bible—the DSM

Madness is currently undergoing a redesign, with the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, often called the ‘Psychiatrist’s Bible’ being updated. Basically, a big group of grey-haired psychiatrists have been getting together to decide what qualifies someone as being mentally ill. There are a whole heap of proposed changes that have the potential to change how we think about our bodies and behaviours. Rape is set to become a mental disorder, and wanting to have sex all the time is being considered for inclusion.
