YIKES: WHO Breaks With APA on Gender Dysphoria, No Longer Mental Disorder

Published

on

The World Health Organization (WHO) has dropped a mental health disorder from it’s official list of diseases, breaking with the American Psychiatric Association (APA).

“In its revised International Classification of Diseases, released Monday, the WHO removed transgender identity as a mental health disorder and added gaming disorder to the list,” according to a report by The Week. “Recategorizing transgender as a sexual health condition is aimed at cutting stigma and improving quality of care, says the WHO.”

It is the WHO’s first revision to its list of diseases in 28 years.

Transgenderism is considered a mental disorder by the APA. It is officially named “gender dysphoria.”

“Gender dysphoria involves a conflict between a person’s physical or assigned gender and the gender with which he/she/they identify,” says the APA. “People with gender dysphoria may often experience significant distress and/or problems functioning associated with this conflict between the way they feel and think of themselves (referred to as experienced or expressed gender) and their physical or assigned gender.”

But dropping a disease from the official list to avoid “stigma” makes little sense. Many recognized mental health disorders have stigmas attached to them. In response, the diseases are treated, not “de-stigmatized.”

The transgender suicide rate is extremely high compared to that of the population at large. More than 40% of transgender people will attempt suicide at some point, according to a UCLA report. The rate among the rest of the population is about 4%.

Now, with the World Health Organization’s complicity, the political left is trying to pass off a 36% higher suicide rate among transgender people as the result of a societal “stigma” instead of a mental health problem. The stigma is clearly not the problem, evidenced by the fact that the suicide rate before and after “transitioning” is exactly the same, according to the same UCLA study.

The political left is making a clear effort to propagandize the public instead of telling the simple truth about transgenderism.

Biden Rebuffs Advisors’ Demands to Censor OANN, Newsmax, Fox News By Executive Order

Biden advisors have sought to ban conservative media from federal housing.

According to a White House source, President Joe Biden has rebuffed suggestions that he sign an executive order that would ban certain conservative news networks from being broadcast to federal housing complexes.

The order would’ve named One America News Network, Newsmax, and Fox News by name. The former two networks are known for a broadly pro-Donald Trump editorial stance, with Fox split between establishment liberal and conservative content.

Authoritarian liberals advising President Biden are said to have suggested that Biden crack down on television and media networks which dissent from the administration’s policy views, citing the raucous US Capitol protest earlier this month as an imperative to clamp down on the opposition.

The executive order in question would most prominently affect military housing, where the cable channels in question are accessible through cable services contracted through the military services. The order, which never progressed beyond suggestions to President Biden, may even have gone so far as to restrict the television channels from private housing organizations contracted to provide lodging to military service members and their families.

Biden even went so far as to dismiss the censorship attempt as “nonsense,” according to a White House source familiar with the exchange. It’s likely that attempts to sign and enforce it would’ve been shut down by the judiciary, representing a clear attempt to discriminate against the very viewing of political expression within federal buildings.

As an authoritarian streak grows more prominent in the intolerant attitudes of American liberals, it appears President Biden himself is at least skeptical to the slightest degree of governmental censorship attempts, although Biden has never so much as even made reference to the censorship practices utilized by Big Tech companies against tens of millions of Americans.
