I’ll quote the DSM, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, published by the American Psychiatric Association.

That’s where the definition of gender dysphoria is.

Two things to understand up front. First, a medical condition is supposed to be discovered and diagnosed through some kind of physical test: blood, urine, hair, X-ray, brain scan, genetic assay. Gender dysphoria has NO defining physical test for diagnosis.

This means the definition is arbitrary opinion; nothing more. It functions as an unsupported (but official) claim that gender dysphoria is a “real condition.”

This stamp of approval is VITAL for the trans movement.

And transgender activists can also say: “See, it’s MEDICAL. So it has to be TREATED.”

The second thing to understand is the official definition of gender dysphoria allows doctors to bill insurance for “treatment.”

This is also vital. Without billing there is no money. Without money there would be no medical treatment. Without treatment, no one would bother inventing a definition of gender dysphoria. Without a definition, trans activists wouldn’t have a medical leg to stand on.

OK. Here is the official definition of gender dysphoria:

A marked incongruence between one’s experienced/expressed gender and natal gender of at least 6 months in duration, as manifested by at least two of the following:

A.

A marked incongruence between one’s experienced/expressed gender and primary and/or secondary sex characteristics (or in young adolescents, the anticipated secondary sex characteristics)

B.

A strong desire to be rid of one’s primary and/or secondary sex characteristics because of a marked incongruence with one’s experienced/expressed gender (or in young adolescents, a desire to prevent the development of the anticipated secondary sex characteristics)

C.

A strong desire for the primary and/or secondary sex characteristics of the other gender

D.

A strong desire to be of the other gender (or some alternative gender different from one’s designated gender)

E.

A strong desire to be treated as the other gender (or some alternative gender different from one’s designated gender)

F.

A strong conviction that one has the typical feelings and reactions of the other gender (or some alternative gender different from one’s designated gender)

Again, notice there is no physical diagnostic test. Everything depends on the patient’s “desire.” There is no mention of how that desire may have been formed or influenced.

An official medical disorder based on a desire?

You can walk down any street in the world and find all sorts of people who have all sorts of compelling desires. These desires aren’t the defining basis for medical disorders.

Except in this case.

And in this case, toxic drugs, hormones, and decidedly RADICAL surgery are the “treatments.”

Is there any other “condition” in the world for which castration is the solution? Or the blocking of puberty is the answer?
