Transsexuality: Mental Disorder or not?

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Aniihya on Sun Dec 30, 2018 9:55 am

I already know the answer to this, but thought it would be an interesting topic here in D&D.

Often the opponents of transsexuality state that transsexualism is a mental illness and shouldn't be reinforced. On the other side there are people who deny even that gender dysphoria is a mental illness, despite gender dysphoria being distress coming from the discomfort that ones genitalia don't match with the identity (often a mental illness isn't a mental illness until in causes major distress or potentially cause harm to self or others).

If someone is going to state that transsexuality causes harm to others, I will stop you right there, because that is like stating that your religious liberties are being taken away because you are a Christian despite the fact that you want to use it to harm others and take the liberties of others away with it. It is a ridiculous argument.

Discuss.
Everybody! Unless you have been in a roleplay with me in the past and were loyal to it, do not PM or text me about joining your RP.

I do NOT do Pokemon, Yugioh, WoW or any such RPs.

Please be aware of this.
