Transcript 16. Thomas S. Szaz, M.D., informs straight readers of his Manufacture of Madness that society considers homosexuality a crime and a disease. (It's hardly news to those of us who have been bombed!) Szaz points out that contemporary gays are treated like those women of the Middle Ages dubbed "witches". Whereas "witches" were persecuted by "men of the cloth", gays today are receiving like treatment from the legal and medical professions. To cite a case in point, Szaz notes Clive Boutilier, a Canadian national. He was deported by the Immigration and Naturalization Service because he identified himself as homosexual. This case finally wound up in the Supreme Court. In an incredible ruling, the court stated that Boutilier's homosexuality was "a condition, namely, a (and get this now obsolete A.P.A. jargon) psychopathic personality at the time of his admission (into the U.S.A.)." Szaz continues by asking a significant question: if the United States government wanted to know if immigrant aliens were homosexual couldn't they ask them upon immigration instead of spying on them later, as with Boutilier? He had lived in the U.S. for ten years before he was deported. Szaz shows that in today's society many see Gays not as persons, individuals with individual needs, but rather as ridiculous objects. In short, one who is Gay is thought of as a nonconformist and therefore SICK. The great philosopher Sartre said i are possible between homosexuals just as Homosexuals can love, give, elevate othe Let us therefore hope that in time our s come to that view. Dr. Szaz simply underlines the fact have not heard this message. Gays are no since the American Psychiatric Associati Gays psychopathic at all. it is a matter they canr.ot be criminal psychopathies. t best: "Human relations between a man and a woman, rs and elevate themselves.' ociety will ultimately that America (and France) t criminal psychopathies; on no longer considers of simple logic that WOMEN ON THE MOVE On Sunday, September 8, a picnic was held at the Northeast Game Preserve with over forty people present throughout the afternoon. Planned by several bar owners and members of the Gay Conmunity Center, the purpose was one of unity end bringing the two groups together. The events involved were the "carry-in" and the keg which was furnished by one of the bar owners, get acquainted time, a meeting concerning future activities, and the election of the r«presentetives to the Coordinating Council of the Texas Gay Task Force. Resulting from this group was a beginning toward a greater feeling of sisterhood and the establishment of a smaller group to work toward and plan a weekend campout in November.
