    You make a lot of claims, that stand against what is plain and obvious, backed up by a (an) air of authority and expertise.
    Just to clarify this is what I was thanking...

    Actually, since it is not valid and have been proven to not be valid, what you said is invalid.

    Repeatedly saying something is valid does not prove it is valid.

    The person you are responding to, aside, I'm not clear that the APA is as definitive as you represent them to be. From the APA website, under the question: "Is being transgender a mental disorder?":

    A psychological state is considered a mental disorder only if it causes significant distress or disability. Many transgender people do not experience their gender as distressing or disabling, which implies that identifying as transgender does not constitute a mental disorder. For these individuals, the significant problem is finding affordable resources, such as counseling, hormone therapy, medical procedures and the social support necessary to freely express their gender identity and minimize discrimination. Many other obstacles may lead to distress, including a lack of acceptance within society, direct or indirect experiences with discrimination, or assault. These experiences may lead many transgender people to suffer with anxiety, depression or related disorders at higher rates than nontransgender persons.
    According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), people who experience intense, persistent gender incongruence can be given the diagnosis of "gender dysphoria." Some contend that the diagnosis inappropriately pathologizes gender noncongruence and should be eliminated. Others argue that it is essential to retain the diagnosis to ensure access to care. The International Classification of Diseases (ICD) is under revision and there may be changes to its current classification of intense persistent gender incongruence as "gender identity disorder."

    There is no proof either way... that is the beauty of my argument. Opinions are all that matter and mine matters most since it is correct.

    Correct. But since my argument IS valid I can assert it's validity...

    Three sentences, all entirely and individually wrong. An impressive effort there.

    Suicides are also something crazy like 27 times more likely among trans. I wonder why? Because it's deep mental disorder.
