Gender dysphoria is clearly a mental illness and is in fact defined as such by the American Psychiatric Association in the DSM-5 if certain criteria are met.

Actually, it is not defined as a mental illness in DSM-5.

Dysphoria is not a mental illness.

And you might want to keep in mind that these people are educated Doctors, not emotional and potentially emotionally impaired.

You're going to simply be called a 'bigot' or other ruses as an argument. No matter how much data is thrown at those on the AFFIRMATION side, it's going to be an argument of Identity politics and emotion.

I've learned there is no reasoning or counter argument to those who are injected so heavily and deeply into the "They must be Trans because they say so"....side of the coin.

Dysphoria is not a mental illness.


Intoxication by alcohol, is also not a mental illness.

Technically.

It has been designated a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center for its anti-LGBT positions.


So one hate group accuses another group of hate. That sounds about right.


I don't think the Southern Poverty Law Center is a hate group.


I think the SPLC is clearly a hate group and in fact uses their power to bully, intimidate and harass those that don't agree with them.

Sounds like a hate group to me.


Or are they standing up to bullies and helping people that need help? That doesn't sound like a hate group to me.

oh you better believe SPLC is a hate group. In fact, anyone that does not accept unconditional child abuse by trying to force a mental illness upon confused children is considered a hate group or bigot. Because children need to be groomed for this niche in the porn industry now where many are probably ending up. After an audition with the old man that will be their director of course.

Yeah it's our fault we have standards for what constitutes data and facts. How horrible that we don't just eat up anything that gives us the warm fuzzy feeling of confirmation bias.

SPLC is a hate group because they refuse to hate transgender people like you? Oh... okay.

No but poor serotonin levels account for a predisposition to alcohol abuse. That is a medical issue.

SPLC is a group of whack job pseudo "Constitutional" Lawyers, with idol hands and busy minds, shlocking their fantasies of "Justice", onto select groups of people, that don't match their fringe criteria of the "cool kids".

They also consider skinhead groups, neo-nazi organizations and the KKK hate groups. They're just crazy!

If there was data showing that just 10% of "Trans children" were actually not Trans at all, it would be enough to err on the side of caution.

But that wouldn't confirm the BIAS of some here on ATS, so it's in the philosophical and argumentative trash can.

You can't prove it to them anymore than anyone can prove or disprove God.

They know that gender is solely in the brain, and therefore, it is 100% subjective. So long as they cling to that the same way they cling to their moral relativity, you might as well pee on their leg because they'll tell you it's raining.

What's wrong with being an activist? LOL Shouldn't we all want to be activists for the better of our communites. or should we just sit on our couches and watch Duck Dummies or Kardashians on TV?

I think there are a few gun rights and pro-life activists on this very site. But, of course, those are the "good" kind of activists.
