Trying to say they know science when they're just trying to further the religious agenda. Nay.

Yea. Gender dysphoria is as much a disorder as bipolar.

Conservatives back at it again trying to trick us into denying trans people rights with these bill names.

Yay. It is absurd to force upon children hormone blockers. When they are adults they can make that decision for themselves.

No government has any authority in this matter.

Nay. First, it obviously has discriminatory intent. Section one is especially bad and should take away any consideration of this bill.
1) the DSM isn't government made and no law can change any part of the book. You'll need to convince professional psychologists who convene to make the DSM.

This legislation would impose our will on an independent assembly of psychological experts and block the ability of parents to address the psychological harms faced by their children. I must vote nay.

The child's brain is not developed until 23-25. The hormone blockers do life long damage and should not be given to minors (some as young as 12 years old). I took abnormal psych about 5 years ago, they were still teaching gender dysphoria. It is still an accepted psychological disease, but the treatment is because of the pharmaceutical industry

The government cant influence the DSM. Period.

You dont understand the DSM and the diagnostic process.

You don't know what you're talking about. It is still a mental disorder according to the most recent publications

Only under specific circumstances, which you'd know if you had actually studied psychology at all recently.

What education do you have? I have taken many psychology classes in college, all acknowledge this illness

Must have been a totally revisionist liberal arts school or something. I learned about gender dysphoria in that class, adolescent psych, and another.'it's a mental illness plain and simple

Under sexual illnesses

The law can't affect the DSM-5, and this is unconstitutional under Oberfell V Hodges and Griswold V Conneticut

I don't see how griswold or obergefell are applicable here?

Griswold said that connecticut banning contraceptives violated the women's right to privacy, this would be the same thing. Obergfell ruled that the equal protection clause protected discrimination against LGBT individuals.

You are horrendously wrong, and I don't have the patience to debate it because this isn't a Supreme Court case.

Yea . . . I think. I have nothing against transgenders, but minors shouldn't be able to make that life changing decision.

Rewriting anything you dont like as a mental illness sure is a classic for you, I guess

This isn't rewriting anything. It's medical fact. Do you also think that bipolar is normal?

1. Being back DSM5 classification of 'transgenderism' as 'Gender Dysphoria'.

2. Criminal charges for parents who provide minors with hormone blockers suffering from gender dysphoria.

3. Criminal charges for doctors who provide hormone blocked to minors suffering from gender dysphoria.
