12. The point remains that the proposed expansion of various mental disorder classifications is enormous

and they have not been careful about issues like reliability or validity--or even in some cases that what they are proposing as mental disorders make any sense. For example, they propose adding hebephilia as a sexual disorder despite evidence that many people have strong attractions to post-pubescent members of the opposite sex.

I'm not coming from the information in the article I cited, BTW. I've been actively following this since the beginning of the revision process, and both know a number of the principals in the debates and have made public statements in professional fora about these matters.
