Legalizing A Dangerous Psychiatric Disorder

Young "transgender" women who had their breasts surgically removed marched in the streets at Boston Pride 2004. Caption reads: “It was a nice night to doff your shirt.”

These are the types of extremely dangerous behaviors that "transgender rights and hate crimes" bill H1722 will try and normalize EVERYWHERE expect in your own private homes.
Thanks to the fair and balanced analysis of H1722 by MassResistance.org, all residents of Massachusetts can contact their state legislators with facts and demand that this sub-human of a bill be demolished or our society as we know it will be lost.

Click HERE for the complete text of bill H1722.

Please take the time to read about how this bill will affect YOU by clicking HERE.

Click HERE for a bulleted list of talking points of how dangerous H1722 is to society as we know it.
Finally, click HERE as to how the diagnostic manual of the mental health professions (the DSM-IV) defines "gender identity" as a psychiatric disorder.
I only have one question from reading all of the very disturbing information regarding H1722: What is the benefit of legalizing a psychiatric disorder that is clearly dangerous to society?

The slippery slope of deviance is upon us. No mental disorder should ever be embraced through legislation. This is the ultimate goal of secular progressives AKA marxists. The inmates are running the asylum and principled people with morals and values have to push back and push back hard now. We must not let this madness continue.

It is time to rise up and take back our government and churches. These people are relying on the wisdom of man and ignoring the wisdom of God.

And pray for those poor lost souls that are in need of much help.

Religion should be considered a psychiatric disorder. It causes people to believe in invisible men, an urge to tell others about the invisible man and a self righteous attitude.

“It is time to rise up and take back our government and churches.”

Go ahead and take the churches, but religion had its chance with the government and it squandered it. People are realizing religion can’t be trusted; it took way too long for that.

"What is the benefit of legalizing a psychiatric disorder that is clearly dangerous to society?"
Exactly what is it about someone who in intersexed that is so 'dangerous'? Also, since most people who are gender-dysphoric have a biological basis for that dysphoria, what makes you think it is a 'psychiatric disorder'? And, further, what, exactly, needs to be legalized?
People who are intersexed or who have Gender Identity Disorder are not 'dangerous'. In fact, what's dangerous is that there are people on this planet that think just because they don't like how someone presents themselves, that gives them the right to beat, torture, and/or kill that someone.
I am very curious of your answer to my third question, though. Since it is not illegal to present yourself however you see fit, it is not illegal to be transgender, transexual, or a transvestite - So, I'm having trouble understanding exactly what it is that you are afraid of becoming 'legalized'.

Katie,

You said withOUT any citations to back up your claim:

"Also, since most people who are gender-dysphoric have a biological basis for that dysphoria, what makes you think it is a 'psychiatric disorder'?"

Where is it stated that gender-dysphoric states are biologically based? Please provide citations to your claims.

Gender Identity is considered a psychiatric disorder by the psychological science of medicine. Did you read the information that was provided via the link?

You provided a question that is CLEARLY answered by READING my post:

"So, I'm having trouble understanding exactly what it is that you are afraid of becoming 'legalized'".

You need to read the post. The answer is there if you READ. Sorry, Katie, but the dangers of this psychiatric disorder are clearly spelled out. I don't know of any other way to answer your question other than to tell you to read the post in full.

You said it best when you stated:

"No mental disorder should ever be embraced through legislation."

You hit the nail on the head. Thank-you.

Man you are a funny guy! Fair and balanced?!?!? MassResistance makes FOX news look like CNN.

Using MassResistance to back up any of your claims just makes you look silly in my eyes. You seem much more inteligent than this.

I find it odd you would put forward as evidence a group that doesn’t hold homosexuality as a mental illness. How can they be right on gender identity but not on homosexuality?

(I'm going to re-post what I posted in the other thread)

Here's one, start from the "Genes and Gender" section:
http://www.docbushong.com/pubs/what_is_gender.asp

Here's another one:
http://www.advancedpsy.com/klinefelter_syndrome___other_sex_chromosome_abnormalities-page-30.html

This is what I could come up with from a simple Google search. There have been countless articles in medical journals about these conditions. As you can see, it is estimated that chomosomal abnormalities occur in 1 out of 500 births. That's a LOT of people. Technically, if you have an extra 'X' or 'Y' chromosome, you are intersexed, and your physical sex may not match your chromosomal gender. At least in these cases, this is NOT a psychological disorder.

Too much SCIA ignorance and hate to associate with true Christians, or intelligent minds. I do not think public display to create anger and hatred is appropriate either.

Every ten minutes a child is born, 1/2500, in which the doctor cannot determine the sex, or gender. These children are Intersex; they are born into a life of not male or female. Likewise in similar fashion the Transsexual is identified with a Bioneurological congenital condition they too are locked into something not quite so clearly defined as male, or female. The best we can do is live as close to what we seem to believe we are. That may preclude the wants, and often ignorant and bigoted beliefs of others.

What is it about MassResistances OPININATED analysis you don't agree with. I am not passing their opinion off as fact, but a good analysis that I agree with. Do you agree with it Rufus?

I love the way that Scia conveniently doesn't respond to postings that contradict his opinion. At least he's consistent.

It reminds me of when you're having a discussion with someone and prove a point and the other person won't acknowledge it, no matter how illogical or foolish he looks by not doing so.

Stellewriter,

As I asked you in a previous post:

"You say you are a Christian. Can you point out anywhere in the Bible where God CREATED or ADVOCATED for transsexuality or those "not born" as a man or female?"

Katie,

You said:

Gender-identity disorder and intersexed extra 'X' or 'Y' chromosomal people, is that a word?..., are two COMPLETELY different things. The virgin mother of Christ, Mary, was considered to have two extra chromosomes which led to the theory that she had an ectopic birth leading up to the virgin birth label. Was Mary a transsexual if this was the case Katie or are you comparing apples and oranges again.

Try Googling a little bit longer.

I thought you were all about the FACTS, SCIA?

You seem to be trying to pass their opinion off as fact here SCIA.

And a 125 page report??? Who is going to read this? The legislature? Doubt it. Remember it's not the length, but the quality, something Massresistance has very little of in my OPINION.

Rufus,

I am not sure which thought process that your trying to post here is the one I should follow.

Slow down, and try to articulate your thoughts without contradicting yourself in every other paragraph.

SCIA, how am I contradicting myself? Have I not made it clear my disdain for Massresistance, or are you attributing someone elses words to me in error. Where are my contradictions?

Rufus,

You asked:

"You seem to be trying to pass their (MassResistance) opinion off as fact here SCIA."

How so my friend, when I specifically stated:

"What is it about MassResistances' OPININATED analysis you don't agree with?"

It's the readers of the posting responsibility to determine if THEY want to pass this opinion off as fact, not mine. I already stated that the analysis is an OPINION, not a fact.

Do you need me to slow down for you Rufus?

SCIA, I am not a stupid man, and I find your demeanor hostile and insulting. Granted, it is hard to tell in a blog, so I will give you the benefit of the doubt.

OK, let me try to explain a little clearer.

Yes, you replied to me that you were passing Massresistance analysis on as opinion, but the tone of your original post seems to me to be passing their analysis off as fact. In fact, nowhere in your post do you say this is the opinion of Massresistance.

The title of your blog is "Know Thy Facts...", insinuating you are all about the facts. This leads me to believe your postings will lead me to facts, not opinions. Or at least facts to back up your opinions.

From what I have seen, Massresistance cares little for actual facts, and, as I stated on another thread, using them as a source does nothing to help any argument you put forward.

I hope that clears up any inconsistancies. Let me know if it does not, and I will slow it down for you.

Are you for real, or are you yanking my chain, Scia?

If you have an opinion on something, you must have reached it somehow...Have you not come to certain conclusions by looking at data, facts and other such tangible elements? Well rounded opinion has the facts to prove it's acuracy, don't you think?

Or are your opinions only based on other people's opinions and analyis?

Rufus,

As posted to you earlier:

Define opinion:

"The judgment or sentiment which the mind forms of persons or things; estimation."

That's right boys and girls, your opinion is an ESTIMATION of what YOU think is right.

Now, define fact:

"Reality; actuality; truth;"

Make sense??

SCIA, you obviously are clueless as to my point. I hope this clears it up, if not, I give up.

Has someone never told you to back up your opinion with facts to show how you formed your opinion?

For example, you believe homosexuality is wrong. But why? When someone asks you why you have such an opinion, do you simply state that's just my estimation, and leave it at that? NO, I don't think so. Wouldn't you want to show how you formed that opinion with actual facts? "The bible says so", "certain studies show this and that."

If you don't understand the concept of substantiating your opinion, maybe is is you who should take a trip back to grammer school.

Understand?!?!?!?!

Rufus,

You mentioned in your last comments that this issue is dead...I think it is too, but in case you don't read my other commetns to you I will cover my a** here as well:

You asked:

"Has someone ever told you to back up your opinion with facts to show how you formed your opinion?"

No, they never asked me to back up my opinion with facts because if they did, I would therfore give them facts and not my own personal opinion.
