Skip to comments.Is being transgender a mental illness? WHO classification system suggests it is

t is, perhaps, a peculiar fact involving an obscure medical text, but it is one that is now taking on outsized importance: The World Health Organization, in a compendium of conditions and diseases, lists being transgender under the umbrella of mental illness.
The WHO publishes a standardized coding system used around the globe to classify medical conditions, for research purposes and health-care billing. In the document, being transgender is currently included in a section with kleptomania (the overwhelming impulse to steal), trichotillomania (the compulsion to pull out ones own hair), and pedophilia (a preference for having sex with children).

Yes, most of us know it is crazy.
Next question please.
Of course it is, but just try getting the PC culture to admit it.
Regardless of delusions suggesting otherwise, a person cannot escape the biology they were born with. You either have XX chromosomes, or you have XY chromosomes, and their is no way to reverse or change that
without genetically damaging the host.
Most homosexuals were MOLESTED AS CHILDREN.
The “transgender” delusion is a coping mechanism.
Yes, of COURSE it’s a mental disorder of some sort, cause known in some cases, unknown in most. But a disorder—definitely.
You don’t need a “WHO classification” to tell you that a man who dresses like and thinks he is a woman is crazy. This post Christian neo pagan epicurean decadent era America is entering not only violates divine law but Darwinian law as well.
It can’t be; admitting to it and indulging in it is awarded a lifetime achievement in courage. I saw that on television. (do you get a second award when you de-mutilate your body?)
Why is that even a question?
It is self-evident that it is a mental disorder - one need only observe the individual to see that. What’s up for consideration at the moment isn’t a clinical definition but rather a political one.
Yep, just like homosexuality. Used to be classified as such in the DSM, back before the fags took over the APA.
Makes complete sense that it’s a mental illness. Whether or not it is preferentially self-induced is another matter.
The inability to recognize and accept obvious reality indicates mental illness.
Transgenders are mentally ill, and people who refuse to recognize transgenderism as a mental illness are also mentally ill.
In DSM-5, “Gender Dysphoria” is a mental disorder.
Yo G, thanks for raising the molestation issue.
Overwhelmingly, homo men self-report being raped or molested as children or teens by an older boy or man.
If you stop the rape and molestation of boys, you stop homosexuality in men in a generation.
This is widely known, but is a volatile topic. Leftists would rather children be hurt than solve the problem.
What I notice after talking to them for a minute is the sadness emanating off most homos. They are not complete or whole people, and they know it. They are all scarred in the same way, which is sad.
Some guy wants to chop off his pecker. . . .yup, I’d say that is a mental illness.
Of course it is.
I need WHO to tell me this?
Agreed. Interestingly, it appears that males that are molested as children become what molested them. Females tend to reject what molested them and become dykes. That’s a psychological study that would never see the light of day...
