    The number of men suffering from mental disorder is almost double compared to women in the country. Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr S Subramaniam said the National Morbidity Study carried out last year revealed that a total of 42,168 people sought psychiatric treatment at government hospitals for some form of mental disorder. "Of this, a total of 27,855 men suffered mental disorder compared to 14,313 women," he said in written reply to a question by Nik Mohamad Abduh Nik Abdul Aziz (PAS-Pasir Mas) in Dewan Rakyat Wednesday. He added that those between 20 and 49 years old tend to suffer...

    After hearing about Obama's executive order that all colleges and schools k-12 will guarantee that all transgendered people will have restroom accommodations, and considering the Supreme Courts ruling of basically stating that gay people are normal, I thought some may enjoy reading what posted here 3 years ago. Then it was an excerpt, but here is the full article. I added an update in quotes to one part.

  • If Caitlyn Jenner Reverts to Bruce . . .

    Although Bruce Caitlyn Jenner’s rep is denying it, there are reports claiming that within the next few years, Caitlyn will revert to Bruce, the alleged reasons being that: 1) living as a woman has “been very hard” for him; and 2) he’s still attracted to women.If the reports are true, Jenner will not be the first person who experienced sex change regret. I wrote an article about this painful and much-ignored subject two years ago, and I certainly pray that he will find internal and external wholeness.But rather than focusing on Jenner right now, let’s think about the larger questions...

    (CNSNews.com) - The U.S. Justice Department is putting the feelings of transgenders -- men who think they are women and women who think they are men -- above the privacy rights of the vast majority of people who don't contest the biological facts of who they actually are. "And what we must not do, what we must never do, is turn on our neighbors, our family members, our fellow Americans for something that they cannot control and deny what makes them human," Attorney General Loretta Lynch said on Monday.
  • Narcissistic personality disorder

    04/04/2016 8:36:42 PM PDT · by UnwashedPeasant · 90 replies
    Narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) is a personality disorder in which a person is excessively preoccupied with personal adequacy, power, prestige and vanity, mentally unable to see the destructive damage they are causing to themselves and often others. People with narcissistic personality disorder are characterized by exaggerated feelings of self-importance. They have a sense of entitlement and demonstrate grandiosity in their beliefs and behavior. They have a strong need for admiration, but lack feelings of empathy. In addition to these symptoms, the person may display arrogance, show superiority, and seek power. The symptoms of narcissistic personality disorder can be similar to...

    American Thinker ^ | March 26, 2016 | Sierra Rayne
    During July 2008, nationally syndicated talk show host Michael Savage ignited a firestorm with his comments about autism, calling it "a fraud, a racket." In follow-up statements, Savage explained his views as being "meant to boldly awaken parents and children to the medical community's attempt to label too many children or adults as 'autistic.'" While Savage's language was blunt, his concerns over the gross over-diagnosis of autism are valid. Of course, the U.K. banned Savage from entry, in no small part because of his controversial views on autism, proving -- yet again -- that British governments, both Labour and Conservative...

    A large number of doctors in certain EU member states still view homosexuality as a disease, a report has revealed. Euroefe reports. The research also shows that there are still quite a number of healthcare professionals in several EU member states who believe LGBT people suffer from pathological diseases, said Michael OFlaherty, the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA). A recent FRA report found that Bulgaria, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania, Poland and Slovakia are the EU countries where this misconception is most widely held. This negative view of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people held by groups of professionals...

    Here's a question most anyone who learns I am researching confidence artists asks me: Are con artists clinical psychopaths-or are they just slightly more devious versions of our more conniving selves? Is it a qualitative difference between our small daily deceptions and the wiles of the confidence man, or is it just a simple matter of degree?

  • California considers banning anorexic models

    California would ban anorexic models under a bill introduced Monday in the state Legislature. Assemblyman Marc Levine, D-San Rafael, said AB2539 is an effort to reduce the number of eating disorders among models by creating industry health standards and requiring modeling agencies to be licensed by the California Labor Commissioner. Under the legislation, models would need a physician’s certificate attesting that they don’t suffer from an eating disorder, which agencies would be required to keep on file or face a fine.

    The denial of reality has become a civil right, at least in the eyes of the left and the parts of our governmental apparatus in its control.  See, for example, this handy-dandy do-it-yourself guide to getting your gender changed on a California driver’s license, Social Security account, passport, or even birth certificate.  Orwell imagined only a dystopia in which people could retroactively be made unpersons, but now we can retroactively change the facts of birth. This level of madness portends the destruction of our civilization, and coincidentally or not, we face a certain percentage (one? five? twenty? who knows?)...

    Forget being transgender like Caitlyn Jenner or transracial like Rachel Dolezal, there’s a new “trans” frontier: people who are transage. In an interview with the gay news site The Daily Xtra, Stefonknee (formerly Paul) Wolscht details his struggles with being a male-to-female transgender person. The Daily Xtra video, however, glosses over a tiny bit of important information about Wolscht: he thinks he is actually a six year-old girl—not just a woman, but a six year-old girl—stuck in the body of a 50-something man. At age 46, Wolscht deserted his wife and his seven children to live his “true” life. “There’s...

    'Snapping' author David Kupelian blasts new effort by 'loony left' to silence conservatives If you think there might be something wrong with homosexuality, you most likely have a mental disorder, according to a recent study by a team of Italian researchers.Discussing the study, lead researcher Emmanuele A. Jannini, M.D., stated: “After discussing for centuries if homosexuality is to be considered a disease, for the first time we demonstrated that the real disease to be cured is homophobia, associated with potentially severe psychopathologies.”That’s right. The research team specifically found that “psychoticism,” “immature defense mechanisms” and a “fearful attachment style” were associated...

    For most people becoming blind would be a living nightmare - but for Jewel Shuping it was the fulfilment of a lifelong dream. Jewel has Body Integrity Identity Disorder (BIID), a condition in which able-bodied people believe they are meant to be disabled. Her need to lose her sight was so strong that in 2006 she decided to blind herself - by having a sympathetic psychologist pour DRAIN CLEANER into her eyes. According to Jewel, her fascination with blindness began early in childhood. She said: "When I was young my mother would find me walking in the halls at night,...

    Recently, a friend sent me an article he was furious about. The title was: Hormone treatment approved for Chelsea Manning. The innocent question that popped into my head was: Who the hell is Chelsea Manning? Chelsea, it turns out, is none other than Bradley Manning, the Army intelligence analyst who turned over classified information to WikiLeaks in 2010. Well at least I think that Chelsea is just Bradley in a stupid-looking wig; others apparently hold some different views. The articles title pretty well summarized the rest of the pathetic story. A more apt title would have been: US Army...

    Now that Time Magazine has told us that transgender is the new black, Im going to say something politically incorrect: Your gender is not whatever you think it is. Put another way, there is no such thing as, My gender is fill in the blank.Unfortunately, Facebook didnt get the memo, and so, according to APs Martha Mendoza, Facebook users who don't fit any of the 58 gender identity options offered by the social media giant are now being given a rather big 59th option: fill in the blank. (Yes, I know this sounds crazy, but its true.)One year ago, I...

    A transgender physician will soon become Pennsylvania's new physician general, the Washington Blade reported. Dr. Rachel Levine, an expert in adolescent eating disorders and behavior health, was nominated for the Commonwealth's highest medical post by progressive Gov. Tom Wolf. She made her transition from man to woman five years ago, and with her appointment will become "the highest-ranking transgender person to ever hold a position within state government," the Blade said. Levine graduated from Harvard College and Tulane University Medical School, and has practiced pediatrics and psychiatry for about three decades, PennLive reported. She has been a physician at Penn...

    U.S. scientists have identified a molecular network of genes known to contribute to autism spectrum disorders, and they say their finding may help uncover new genes linked to these conditions. "The study of autism disorders is extremely challenging due to the large number of clinical mutations that occur in hundreds of different human genes associated with autism," study author Michael Snyder, genetics and personalized medicine professor at Stanford University, said in a news release. "We therefore wanted to see to what extent shared molecular pathways are perturbed by the diverse set of mutations linked to autism in the hope of...

    Patients with chronic fatigue syndrome are accustomed to disappointment. The cause of the disorder remains unknown; it can be difficult to diagnose, and treatment options are few. Many patients are still told to seek psychiatric help. But two recent studies one from investigators at Stanford a few weeks ago and another from a Japanese research team published earlier this year have found that the brains of people with chronic fatigue syndrome differ from those of healthy people, strengthening the argument that serious physiological dysfunctions are at the root of the condition. Both studies were small, however, and their...
