Did you not read this part:
Socially deviant behavior (e.g., political, religious, or sexual) and conflicts that are primarily between the individual and society are not mental disorders unless the deviance or conflict results from a dysfunction in the individual, as described above.
Homosexuality deviates from the societal norm but because all conflict stems from the interaction between the individual and society it is not a disorder. Which is also why it was removed from the DSM.
Tell me, do you think that people who choose not to have kids also have a mental disorder?
