Sensible Friends 

The field of psychology has not always been friendly to gays and lesbians...homosexuality was classified as a disorder until very recently, "curative therapies" still abound, etc.

It should, however, come as little surprise that the APA has finally come around, and today announced its support of gay marriage, albeit in a very safe and almost apolitical manner. They say it's a mental health issue. Married people are healthier, and discrimination is an unnecessary stress. Fine. I'll take what allies I can get these days.
