Request for help about "courtship disorder"
My name is Kirill and I write articles about paraphilias in Russian Wikipedia. Now I want to write article about courtship disorder, but unfortunately I don’t find free authoritative sources. Can you please provide me with articles about courtship disorder (Kurt Freund’s studies)? My email is firstname.lastname@example.org 22.214.171.124 (talk) 18:25, 4 January 2014 (UTC)

Is imprinting during critical period important for development of sexuality?
Good morning, James! It’s again Kirill from Russia.
I thought a lot about the possible role of imprinting (or other form of learning) during critical period of ontogenesis for developing atypical sexuality. I assume that it is possible that paraphilias are critical period disorder like autism. Some researches claim that in autistic person due to disturbed balance of excitatory and inhibitory (E/I) neurotransmission critical periods for developing sensor, motor, cognitive functions can open and close atypical early or maybe atypical late (or in other way go awry) http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3150222/. Personally I think that similar process can be in persons with paraphilias. For example, in child critical period for developing sexuality can open atypical early , and therefore pedophilia (infantile body scheme can be imprinted) or other paraphilia can be formed. Moreover, a lot of paraphiles have some signs of autism spectrum disorder, especially signs of Asperger syndrome. Maybe paraphilia is part of packet of pervasive neurodevelopmental disorder, which affects a lot of cortical function, becasue of pathology of critical period. Deficit in white matter, what you have found, can disturbed excitatory and inhibitory (E/I) neurotransmission and increase probability that critical period go awry. What do you think about my hypothesis of paraphilias?
I have written my hypothesis in Russian here http://mostovskiy.com/paraphyly/434-gipoteza-o-roli-kriticheskih-periodov-v-formirovanii-parafiliy.html We discussed this topic here http://www.psychforums.com/paraphilias/topic124849.html
Hey, James. Coming from this discussion, where WebMD is mentioned, reminded me of the eMedicine debate going on at WP:MED. WP:Permalink here; current link to the discussion here. I'm alerting you to the discussion in case you want to weigh in on it. Flyer22 (talk) 14:21, 9 June 2014 (UTC)

A case (Sexology) in which you were involved has been modified by which changed the wording of the discretionary sanctions section to clarify that the scope applies to pages, not just articles. For the arbitration committee --S Philbrick(Talk) 20:29, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
Gender Identity Disorder in Children
Hi James. I had an opportunity to review the sources you offered to replace Green (1987) for persistence/desistence rates of gender identity disorder in children. In summary, I am extremely impressed with Drummond et al (2008), and find Wallien & Cohen-Kettenis (2008) to be methodologically suspect but useable with caveats. Would you like to hammer out a rewrite of paragraph three of the lead section together, or will you agree to offer comment on a good-faith revision if I submit one? --April Arcus (talk) 03:20, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
