‘Lesbianism’ Listed As Condition on North Carolina Woman’s Medical Chart

Homosexuality hasn’t been a condition since its removal from the DSM in 1973, but this is interesting nonetheless…

An Indian Trail woman went to the doctor in North Carolina who had blood work done after being worried about her iron levels being low, but she was being nosy and decided to look at her medical chart and when she picked it up her doctor listed her medical problem as ‘Lesbianism.’

According to ABC 11

When she picked up her medical chart, there it was – a so called ‘medical problem’ listed by her doctor as ‘Lesbianism.’

“This listed as a medical problem could really set someone back, could mess with their self-esteem and could make them think something is wrong with them,” Rodriguez told WSOC.

Rodriguez said her doctor and a director of Carolinas Healthcare System contacted her after she complained.

She said they told her that lesbianism was listed as a medical problem to protect her from being offended.

However, the hospital released a statement saying ‘Lesbianism’ is not an appropriate clinical diagnosis, and they are investigating the issue.
