    It must be said: why are so many of you such disgusting human beings, mis-titling LP. He has asked you to call him Minister Prime and yet so many still insist on calling him "Prime Minister," I hope you're all ashamed!

    Well, you are the party of tradition, and "Prime Minister" is the traditional term!

    As if you people care for tradition, all you care about is pandering to the mentally ill who think they're something they're not

    Where's the proof that such people are mentally ill? They're not causing harm to themselves or others, and they're not in distress. They don't fit the criteria for being 'mentally ill'.

    Secondly, how the hell would you know without experiencing it yourself? People have the right to be whoever they want to be.

    There is this little thing called the DSM written by people more knowledgeable than you or I. And I guess it's time to go on a murderous rampage.

    It's considered a medical issue, as transgender people usually require hormone injections and reassignment surgery. It is not considered a mental illness by the DSM.

    No, but I'm aware that it covers gender dysphoria, and that it states that gender dysphoria (transgenderism) is a medical issue, not a mental one.

    Quit bit of reading on enabling acts and unsurprisingly it's been labour that have been wanting them to force through their policies, first Attlee and then Blair.

    Perhaps more interesting is that the Weimar era enabling acts were unconstitutional, but we're accepted regardless on the basis that they were all approved with a two thirds majority.

    You two are beyond silly. :laugh:

    1. Nothing is considered a ‘mental illness’ because almost everyone is afraid to use the term ‘illness’ as a result of rabid political pressure from the regressive left. They are disorders. Paedophilia is a disorder. Those changes aren't based on research—they are pure and simple politics.

    2. The very name of the bloody book… Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.

    3. It's published by APA. If I had a penny for every made-up non-replicable ******** that was ever published in one of APA journals, I'd be able to buy a yacht.

    4. ICD-10 classifies it under mental and behavioural disorders, the same as paedophilia, sadomasochism, or necrophilia.

    Pretty sure lots of them are. Hence the therapy and psychiatric help.

    Some of them are in distress because people constantly bully and discriminate against them!

    It is not a mental disorder.

    You're seriously comparing transgendered people, who cause no harm to other people, to paedophiles?!
