These challenges came from psychiatrists like Thomas Szaszwho argued mental illness was a myth used to disguise moral conflicts; from sociologists such as Erving Goffmanwho said mental illness was another example of how society labels and controls non-conformists; from behavioural psychologists who challenged psychiatry's fundamental reliance on unobservable phenomena; and from gay rights activists who criticised the APA's listing of homosexuality as a mental disorder.
