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.

Country Band that Changed Name from “Lady Antebellum” to “Lady A” Now Suing Black Artist That Originally Used Title

They changed their name because of supposed Confederate ties.

Published

A country music band that changed their name from ‘Lady Antebellum’ to ‘Lady A’ in the wake of the George Floyd race riots is now suing the singer who originally used the title, who is black.

The band had announced it’d change its name in the wake of criticism from liberals, who took offense at the word ‘Antebellum-‘ a phrase sometimes used in historical writings to describe the American South before the Civil War. The group instead opted to call itself “Lady A,” a name, as it turns out, was already in use by Seattle-area blues and folk singer Anita White.

The dispute between Lady Antebellum and White has been identified as a striking example of liberal hypocrisy and self-aggrandizement, with the band making a supposedly virtuous stance and sacrifice by changing their name, utterly ignoring that they were usurping on a musical name already used by a black artist.

In a new development highlighting the Nashville act’s bad faith, the band is now suing White, claiming that they’ve always had the name she’s used as a legal trademark and refusing any claim of monetary damages from the name change on the part of White.

Today we are sad to share that our sincere hope to join together with Anita White in unity and common purpose has ended,” the group said in a statement. “She and her team have demanded a $10 million payment, so reluctantly we have come to the conclusion that we need to ask a court to affirm our right to continue to use the name Lady A, a trademark we have held for many years.

If Lady Antebellum proves successful in getting the government to recognize their copyright claim to ‘Lady A,’ the artist that originally used the name will have no choice but to surrender it to the more commercially known and influential musical act.

Observers of the situation immediately slammed the country music group for its disrespect for the title’s existing user.
