    You don't but then you have to be open to criticism. You're offerring your opinion which I also didn't ask for - doesn't stop you giving it, does it? And nor should it.
    It seemed more like attacking tbh. 'You can't prove your God is real so you lose'. What did he lose by offering his opinion?

    Its an important point to make people often say they are happy when they really mean content.

    Yes, i think it is a disorder. However one can easily see why such a view is seen as bigoted since not everyone is a professional in this field of study and doesnt have the physchological understanding.

    Certainly we should, but is there a need to do so? I mean, ignoring political correctness, they are still fully mentally stable (as far as im aware)

    Suicides amongst transgenders are higher than your average cis-gender person. Yet, I never see this being called into question.

    explain to me how sufferers of disorders of sexual development can be assigned a gender not linked to their sex and can grow up virtually transgender, but transgender people are the ones who are"mentally ill"

    Can I just ask you this: why does the BPA not class it as a mental illness if psychologically it is? Because they would if it was... but they don't. I would assume that's because it isn't, no?

    Also, why does it actually matter? Transitioning and psychological help are on offer to transsexuals. Help is available. As such, why does this little "illness or not" label even need awarding? People are going to go "I told you so" in either case and the world is going to continue to spin and nothing will cange. I just don't understand this fixation with whether or not it's a defect.

    It's not labelled as such because they call it gender dysphoria.

    Which is the same as calling it a defect, is it not? That is what a dysphoria is, no?

    No, it's literally all cognition based

    Yes it clearly is.
    What I can't understand is the current attitude of indulging the afflicted in their disorder rather than treating it.
    I don't for a moment think that butchering genitalia constitutes "treatment". Infact it's akin to offering a pika sufferer a lightbulb or a paperclip to munch on.
