    It is not a mental disorder.

    Attachment 529475

    In case you'd like the link: http://www.apa.org/topics/lgbt/transgender.aspx

    You're seriously comparing transgendered people, who cause no harm to other people, to paedophiles?!
    Are you just trolling? :confused:

    Even that PC ******** from APA does't support what you're saying so either learn to read or keep these silly arguments to yourself.

    Furthermore, even if we got crazy for a minute and accepted that according to DSM, it is somehow not a disorder (a condition that disrupts normal physical or mental functions, which it does), what ****ing difference would that make? DSM is known to be politicised and the reason why even homosexuality was originally left out is because violent SJW stormed their conference and bullied them into it. There was no scientific discovery, no new data, absolutely nothing but politics!

    Anyway, we aren't even talking about people who think they're the other sex but people who think they're neither sex and that's especially worrying. You can be mayonnaise gender for all I care but keep it to yourself and don't bully people into recognising as equal to male and female.

    my problem with everyone in this generation is that your answer to everything is "it's probably a mental illness" like I've slept for 14 hours and it's "oh that's a sign of depression" it's also what happens when you get home at 8am everyday for like 5 days

    Which is a poor example because the symptom you chose is pretty common among most illnesses or just straight up sleep deprivation, anybody who diagnoses depression based purely on that one symptom clearly needs to be reminded how differential diagnoses work.

    A few on this days today

    Today is Liberation Day in the channel islands, 71 years ago they were liberated from German occupation. It is also the day that the unconditional surrender was ratified.

    Further, formal and public impeachment hearings relating to Watergate opened on this day on 1974.

    And finally, in 1955 West Germany joined NATO.

    So I'm assuming you don't agree with the other Tories' views on transgenderism etc?

    Same. I had anaemia and they thought it was depression.

    I'm increasingly wondering why in 2016 we still don't have electronic voting.
    It's easier, quicker and generally more accessible to the public at large.

    I see no reason for maintaining the ballot system we have at the moment. If the Internet is secure enough for banking, surely it's secure enough for online voting.

    It isn't secure enough for voting because that security removes anonymity.

    Tbh, you miss the additional point of "and......?" Most people I know with these kind of problems integrate by not making a big deal of it, not using it as an excuse as such. Fibromyalgia is a legit example of a frustrating disease, because it IS a disease, but if you want to you could let it ruin your life OR you can address the problem and minimise what troubles it causes.

    Don't worry about us because not having to deal with Android is much more important and rewarding than some TSR app. :awesome:

    Thing is, the internet isn't secure enough for banking, and even if it was, there would always be a way for those with enough determination to hack the election results. The current system isn't perfect, but it's much more secure than e-voting.

    I don't understand, you're telling me it's physically possible for the realms of human imagination to generate something crapper than the TSR Android app?

    I take that back, it is just as bad, but also slightly more configurable but also less space efficient
