Asocia]ia American\ de Psihiatrie a declasificat homosexualitatea din categoria tulbur\rilor mentale în 1973; în prezent atât Asocia]ia American\ de Psihiatrie cât [i Asocia]ia American\ de Psihologie declar\ terapia de aversiune ( în cazul în care este folosit\ ca tratament pentru homosexualitate) ca o violare a standardelor profesionale. ”Un doctor î[i poate pierde licen]a de liber\ practic\ din aceast\ cauz\” afirm\ Mary Coble, “dar înc\ este raportat\ folosirea acestei terapii de [oc, nelegitimate de psihiatrii sau institu]ii abilitate din domeniu.” Ca multe dintre lucr\rile lui Coble, Aversion / Aversiune este rezultatul cercet\rii ei constante în domeniul identit\]ii sociale a homosexualilor [i transgenderilor. Lucr\rile ei anterioare au examinat indiferen]a organiza]iilor menite s\ urm\reasc\ [i s\ previn\ violen]a împotriva homosexualilor, lesbienelor, bisexualilor [i transgenderilor. În Note to Self / Not\ c\tre sine , prezentat la Conner în septembrie 2006, Coble [i-a inscrip]ionat pe spate cu un pistol de tatuaj f\r\ cerneal\, numele a 400 homosexuali, lesbiene, bisexuali [i transgenderi uci[i – victime ale unor crime care nu au fost raportate niciunei baze de date centralizate. Cu Aversion, Coble sper\ s\ evoce manipularea psihologic\ care subliniaz\ [ocul psihic provocat de terapia de aversiune.

The American Psychiatric Association declassified homosexuality as a mental disorder in 1973; currently both the American Psychiatric Association and the American Psychological Association declare aversion therapy (when used as a treatment for homosexuality) a violation of professional standards. “A doctor could lose a license over it,” Coble says. “But there are reports of this shock therapy still happening, not supported by psychiatrists or any mental health institution.” Like much of Coble’s work, Aversion is the result of her constant research into the civic identity of gay and transgender people. Her previous works have examined the indifference among organizations tasked with tracking and preventing violence against gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people. In Note to Self performed at Conner in September 2006, Coble had the names of 400 murdered gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people—the victims of crimes not reported to any central database—inscribed on her back with an inkless tattoo gun. With Aversion, Coble hopes to evoke the psychological manipulation that underscores the physical shock of aversion therapy. Washington CityPaper, May 18-24 2007 Mind the zap.
