    Re: transgender a mental disorder

    It might behoove some of you to learn how to do actual research. The APA said in 2012 that being transgender is NOT a mental disorder, and I'll bet NONE of you who voted "yes" is a licensed psychiatrist.

    It might behoove you to take your own advice. Gender identity disorder is listed as a disorder in the DSM-5. You'd know that if you had done the research. What has changed are the recommendations for treatment, which are now that the body should be altered to fit the disorder. A stupid and political move on the part of the psychiatric community.

    Gender Dysphoria is a mental disorder. But Gender Dysphoria is not the same thing as transsexualism.

    "Disorder" =/= "illness", btw.

    I think a lot of people are getting hung up on their emotional biases, on both sides of the question.
    That is not accurate. In the medical/psychological field, a disorder is synonymous with an illness.

    You're just upset because your position on this topic has been completely destroyed, so you have to make stuff up to try to save face. It's not working.

    It would behoove you to learn a bit about the topic before you confront someone. Gender Identity Disorder is NOT listed as a disorder in the DSM-V. Gender Dysphoric Disorder is. You'd know that if you did the research. Gender Dysphoric Disorder and transsexuality is not one and in the same. You'd know that if you did the research. The recommendations for treatment have been LONG standing and did not change when the DSM-V came out. These standards of care for transsexuals have been in existence since at LEAST 1980. See the Harry Benjamin SOC for reference. If you did the research, I wouldn't have had to correct you as much as I did. Keep that in mind for next time.
