Because the DSM states:


It is important to note that gender nonconformity is not in itself a mental disorder.


www.dsm5.org...


Nonconformity and Dysphoria are two separate terms



DSM-5 aims to avoid stigma and ensure clinical care for individuals who see and feel themselves to be a
different gender than their assigned gender. It replaces the diagnostic name “gender identity disorder”
with “gender dysphoria,” as well as makes other important clarifications in the criteria. It is important
to note that gender nonconformity is not in itself a mental disorder. The critical element of gender dysphoria
is the presence of clinically significant distress associated with the condition.


See if you can spot the important parts of this excerpt.

I have already explained that to you.

Significant distress is also associated with almost falling off a sky scraper. Doesn't make it a mental illness.

Yet another sign of Doctors and others that wish to tell others how to live. Does not matter whether someone wants to be changed to Micky Mouse (with the ears), it is their choice.

Too many people think they have the right to question others choices. Gossiping buffoons.

The Dr. also claims sex change is “biologically impossible”.

Dr. McHugh said that transgenderism is a “mental disorder” and should be met with treatment, and that sex change is “biologically impossible”.



They used to say exactly the same things about gays and lesbians. But, now that homosexuality has won, and is normal and sane, we're just onto the next thing. It's Transgender time, to convince everyone that they too deserve our praise and respect. There are no Transgender Pride Day Parades yet. That's coming. After Transgenders win, we'll be onto the next shocking thing man can think of.

Remember, all of our rules and attitudes are made up by us. We decide what is right and wrong. We set the age at 16 for kids to have sex. We define what is minor and what is adult. Who is to say we've picked the right cross-over age point? God put the age much earlier than we put it. So, by "Natural Law" or "Divine Rule" the age of adulthood is whenever puberty kicks in. Everything else is "unnatural", which we invent.

Today, a 50 year old man having sex with a 14 year old girl is called "pedophilia". Another thing we invent. We arrest these guys and throw them in jail. Tomorrow, we will be celebrating their emancipation from the bigoted laws. They won't have to go all the way to Thailand to find their lady-boys anymore.

Anyone who can't see where we're going with all this, is just legally blind. Should be walking around with a white stick.

Funny you should mention...

Body dysmorphic disorder (BDD)



Body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) is a mental illness characterised by the constant worrying over a perceived or slight defect in appearance.
BDD usually starts in the teenage years, when concern over physical appearance is common.

Seems to me like everyone is confused and rather than using objective scientific process and analysation we are catering to peoples feelings.

Feelings and emotions have no place in science they need to study their cognitive functions the same way they study cognitive functions for everything else including ADHD.

And everyone was going to start marrying their sister and their dog and their toaster if we allowed gays to marry.

Didn't happen.

The DSM states; distress ***IN***

True, but add to that hormonal and chemical effects upon cognitive functions and emotions (chemically-fuelled?). We need a collaborative effort here to find answers and help people.

Transsexual differences caught on brain scan



They found significant differences between male and female brains in four regions of white matter – and the female-to-male transsexual people had white matter in these regions that resembled a male brain (Journal of Psychiatric Research, DOI: 10.1016/j.jpsychires.2010.05.006). “It’s the first time it has been shown that the brains of female-to-male transsexual people are masculinised,” Guillamon says.


.....



In a separate study, the team used the same technique to compare white matter in 18 male-to-female transsexual people with that in 19 males and 19 females. Surprisingly, in each transsexual person’s brain the structure of the white matter in the four regions was halfway between that of the males and females (Journal of Psychiatric Research, DOI: 10.1016/j.jpsychires.2010.11.007). “Their brains are not completely masculinised and not completely feminised, but they still feel female,” says Guillamon.


...



One of the four regions – the superior longitudinal fascicle – is particularly interesting, she says. “It connects the parietal lobe [involved in sensory processing] and frontal lobe [involved in planning movement] and may have implications in body perception.”


and a very important tidbit i think everyone needs to consider...



“Research has shown that white matter matures during the first 20 to 30 years of life,” he says. “People may experience early or late onset of transsexuality and we don’t know what causes this difference.”

It means it's not open ended meaning distress in anything it means distress in exactly whats mentioned in the DSM in the way that it's mentioned.
