Houston MacIntosh, M.D.

December 26, 1994

Through a series of objections, Drs. Friedman and Downey attempt to cast doubts on the validity of the findings of my survey.

First they complain that the survey “confounds political and scientific issues.” This study was an attempt to find objective answers to some unfounded and highly politicized allegations by the chair of the American Psychiatric Association's Committee on Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual Issues. I addition, these allegations reflected a distinct antipsychoanalyst bias. I do not know how it is possible to respond to such allegations without sounding “political” to some. Further, I believe that the topic of homosexuality has become so politicized, that it is presently impossible to publish anything, from any perspective or on any aspect of the subject, regardless of how “scientific” the presentation, without some individuals considering the work “political.”
