    Recognizing this mental illness for what it truly is refutes the agenda of those who wish to push the absurd theories of “gender fluidity” and other nonsense related thereto.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Is it "the brain"? A known physical defect? or is it the mind? A perceptual defect? That is the source of the "mismatch"?

    Talk about a stacked poll. As a transwoman, I have to admit that I, and the minimum of 700,000 like me, are the product of either mental disorder or a birth defect? We are neither defective or disordered.

    Is it possible to rephrase? Just ask your question yes or no, without the editorialization?

    Also, could you make the poll grammatically correct? Transgender is an adjective. You could ask "Do transgender people have a mental disorder?" You could also ask "Gender Dysphoria is a mental disorder?" Saying "Transgender is a mental disorder" is not coherent.

    Of course, neither is McHugh but we can get to him if you can fix your poll.
    Do you think that ADD (having attention issues) is a Disorder but that a man thinking he is a woman is not a Disorder?

    Johns Hopkins Psychiatrist: Transgender is
    I agree with the good Dr. the article pretty much said everything that I had independently concluded and had expressed in the other thread. BTW I was "dismissed" by some for sharing this opinion, glad to see I have good company. On the other hand... this poor guy is probably going to get attacked by the agenda driven psychologists out there.

    Think about the money one practice can make off these transgendered people. First the reassignment and then a life time of subsequent problems (not related of course).

    My mistake for reactivating this thread. I will not participate in something so unfairly worded and rightly dead.

    Trans are deeply flawed humans that have self mutilated. In the animal world such organisms are quickly removed by the way of nature towards the weak.

    The naturally healthy organisms usually eliminate the flawed organisms in nature.

    Re: transgender a mental disorder

    Seems like the argument is over whether the state of being transgendered is a result of:
    A mental problem which can be "fixed" - as in, make a transgendered person no longer transgendered by convincing them/their brain they're the same sex as their body...

    Or a mental disconnect from the sex of their body which can be "fixed" - as in, changing their body to match who they/their brain thinks they are.



    Or...something like that? I'm probably not even using the terms right...

    For that matter, that kinda brings up a discussion about how much of our "self/being/sense of who we are" is biological and dictated by chemicals in our brain/body...
