Oppositional defiant disorder

Oppositional defiant disorder is a (supposed) "mental disorder" which, by vote of a select group of psychiatrists, was entered as a disorder in the DSM. The "disorder" is claimed to manifest itself in childhood or adolescent rebellion against authority. Some boys whose older partners (their BoyLover adult friends) have been arrested have subsequently been uncooperative with parents and legal authorities. Therefore psychiatrists have concluded that the "sexual abuse" causes the boys to develop "oppositional defiant disorder." The DSM-5 added a note that a certain amount of rebellion against authority is normal for young people.
