Bad brains: NIMH v. DSM
I was initially buoyed by the news that the National Institute of Mental Health is moving its research away from DSM diagnostic categories. The DSM’s exhaustive, incriminating taxonomy of nonnormative human behavior has first and foremost been used to marginalize and institutionalize whole categories of people; moreover, many of its diagnostic categories are so vague and descriptive of...

Images of Kept Women by Kate Durbin →
