I thought that being transgender was already labeled a disease of the mind? Well one of my best friends has come out to just me that he wishes to have a vagina and will be undergoing gender reassignment surgery. He's a pretty smart guy but also his mother is a bipolar shizophrenic. I'm of the opinion that it is a disease of the mind. The surge in this transgender mania plus all the breast and prostate cancer rates being steady or increasing I'm sure is a result of water treatment facilities being incapable of filtering out estrogen. a reply to: TheScale

How about calling them 'things'. Things works.

a fricken year wth! many people said it years and years ago when this crap all started that wed end up in a place like this and morons disagreed yet here we stand. what i hate is people will end up being punished for this right up until someone finally has enough and spends tens of thousands of dollars or more taking this through the court system

I just wanted to congratulate you all.
This is the first time I've seen a thread related to gender dysphoria make it three pages in without some old fashioned transphobic rhetoric.
With the exception of one very predictable member getting his tranny bashing nut off, you've all acted like adults.

Yep, typical scaremongering by the hysterical right.
Anything to call the left names really.

It’s definitely not a form of abuse to not call someone their preferred name and pronoun, so the argument this is to protect the elderly from abuse is absurd.
