Neuro-psychologist from Al-Azhar University in Indonesia, Ihshan Gumilar, emphasized that lesbi, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) are mental illnesses. “LGBT is a mental illness and is not caused by biological or congenital factors. absolutely there are events (that make someone LGBT, ed),” he said during the Coordination forum for members of the Pornography Prevention and Handling Task Force (GTP3) with the theme of Pornography and LGBT, Ministry of PPPA .
He gave an example of having a student whose economy is well off. However, unfortunately this student has a broken home family who never listens to her. The incident happened to the student when she was in grade 2 of Elementary School (Elementary School). However, the woman finally feels affection not from her family but from classmates who are fellow women.
not only that, the students also saw pornographic scenes and studied observation. Finally, this student did a pornographic scene with her female classmate. "It forms psychologically stimulated people and does it for years," he said.
he emphasized, LGBT is caused by multifactors. some of them look like family and access pornography. If a person's brain too often accesses pornography, especially same-sex sexual relations, he said, the brain can follow suit. This is due to the flexible nature of the brain like plastic. This is coupled with social media (medsos) which is the primary entry point for LGBT children.
he added, in any religion clearly prohibits this sexual deflection. He emphasized that if someone says that God calls people LGBT, then it is impossible on the one hand that God builds punishment or execution for humans who carry out this practice. He said foreign parties, including the United Nations, who wanted to prevent Indonesia from using LGBT were not a mental disorder since 1973.
In fact, he said, what would happen was obtained not from observations but from what would happen voting on homosexuals and the results were published in the fifth edition of the Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). in this book, LGBT is omitted in the DSM. Unfortunately, he said, this book has become a role model for world psychologists. For that, he emphasized that LGBT can be cured. as long as the sufferer consults and seeks treatment at the right psychologist and does not support LGBT.
Meanwhile, the Director of Prevention and Control of Mental Health and Drugs (Dit P2MKJN), the Ministry of Health (Kemenkes) Fidiansyah admitted that Indonesia had its own guidebook for mental health in Indonesia. "The LGBT dilemma is a mental health issue and is firmly stated (in the Indonesian mental health manual)," he said. For that, he asked all parties to continue to close ranks against LGBT.
