Posted on 06/21/2018 10:07:23 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper
As people around the world don rainbow swag in celebration of International Pride, the World Health Organization (WHO) has come out with an announcement of its own.
For the first time since 1992, the organization issued a major revision to its international manual of diagnoses and, among other things, a major shift in the way transgender people are treated. The 11th revision of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) reframes gender identity disorder as gender incongruence, moving it from a mental health disorder to an issue of sexual health. Codes issued by the ICD are used by countries to determine where to invest resources as well as how to set certain insurance billing standards.

So, it’s OK to turn your back on science and be a Chromosome Denier? This places Algor and his supplicants at odds with “science”. Maybe science really is just an opinion or feeling.
So a 40% suicide rate is normal.
IF WHO says it, it must be true? (sarc!!)
How long before they say things like:
“World Health Organization Officially Says that thinking you are a choo choo train is Not A Mental Illness”
“World Health Organization Officially Says that thinking you are a Chihuahua is Not A Mental Illness”
“World Health Organization Officially Says that thinking you are a Popsicle is Not A Mental Illness”
Shame on our medical experts & psychiatrists for remaining silent.
Some things are so obvious that only experts cannot see it.
SO Michele O. has all her marbles. Yeah, right. And Berry is a feminine stud.
No, it’s much much more. It is a mental and physical illness.
Oh good. Now I can breathe again. Was waiting on bated breath to hear what WHO said. And my name isn’t even HORTON!
DeplorableAmerican1776: 'WHO is a bunch of moronic idiots and whoever thinks WHO does any good is mentally ill' Is that ok?
Being Transgender is a sin.
If not a mental issue, then what, a body illness?
This is nothing more than PC claptrap. Nothing to see here folks. Same old garbage. Move along please. Sheesh!
They even go so far as to admit it is social engineering meant to make trannies feel better and be more accepted in society. It doesn't address the mental anguish these poor people feel. Yes, I have empathy for them, who wouldn't. It must be a living hell literally being trapped in the opposite sexes body. Current medical technology does not allow for a gender change. Maybe one day but not in the foreseeable future. These mutilations they do their bodies just exacerbate their problem IMHO; not lessen it.
“[It] is expected to reduce stigma and will help better social acceptance of individuals living with gender congruence," said Say. "In terms of healthcare provision, we don’t expect much change because this category will still have a place in ICD. In fact, it may even increase access because it will reduce stigma and it will help individuals to seek care more.”
This is not a Gay issue even though some trannies identify with the LGBTxyz groups. This is a mind/body mismatch. It must be dealt with at that level. Hiding behind PC garbage helps no one.
What I would really like to see is what is causing this in .05% of the American population so a prevention can be found for future babies. Some believe it has something to do with what is fed to livestock and/or what is sprayed on crops for bug and virus control. Maybe it changes something in the DNA strand. Maybe it can be tested for in people who carry the gene but are not affected by it. Maybe an inoculation can be given to prevent it from being passed on to the babies.
I had the opportunity to talk with a male trannie who dressed as a woman. Everything about him screamed 'man' to me but others didn't even notice and some others simply went along with his delusion; for lack of a better term. It gave me an insight I would have not otherwise have. I felt pity for the guy but he was fine with it even though he was being treated with anti-depressant drugs and estrogen. He was in his 60's and had a normal life with a wife and kids who accept his coming out. They may not understand it anymore than I do but at least they accepted it. Had to be difficult in the beginning. If it were me; I think I would have kept my mouth shut and just lived as a guy the best I could. From what I understand; the sexual preference of these trannies doesn't really change. If born a guy then they still prefer women. A very strange illness to be sure. I'm sure a lot of us believe they are just loco in cabeza.
Pretty sure my General Psych book says the opposite.
I don’t care what WHO says. Transgender are nutters.
I was curious about this report so went to a gay forum to see it myself.
Yea these individuals peg the crazy meter.
Every two or three posting is written by some 19yo guy who is depressed he doesn’t look lady like.
Wait till they get to be 50.
Crazy people saying other crazy people are not crazy.
Everyone involved in this story is a mental case.
>>Wait till they get to be 50.<<
They will aspire to get up to helen thomas level.
