APA Releases Gender Dysphoria for the DSM-5, May 4, 2011


It looks like we have a new definition for being a transsexual. Instead of Gender Identity Disorder (GID) the APA is proposing to call it Gender Dysphoria. I have not read much about these changes yet, but at least it is not a "disorder." Charlotte Goiar (of HBS fame) posted this on her Facebook page Thursday.


APA Releases Gender Dysphoria for the DSM-5

Today the American Psychiatric Association announced the

replacement of the diagnosis GID for Gender Dysphoria [P 01 Gender Dysphoria] in the DSM-5 to be published in the year 2013.

Transsexualism (ICD-10) will not be longer classified as a mental disorder in the DSM-5 after confirmation of the true diagnosis of Transsexualism after medical and surgical
correction of it.

She made this political comment to her post:

It's time for us to be finally separated from the sociopolitical transgender agenda, and for to create medical protocols specific for our group of patients. Transgenderism is folly. HBS is real.

Specifier**
Post-transition, i.e., the individual has transitioned to full-time living in the desired gender (with or without legalization of gender change) and has undergone (or is undergoing) at least one cross-sex medical procedure or treatment regimen, namely, regular cross-sex hormone treatment or gender reassignment surgery confirming the desired gender (e.g., penectomy, vaginoplasty in a natal male, mastectomy, phalloplasty in a natal female).
Note: Three changes have been made since the initial website launch in February 2010: the name of the diagnosis, the addition of the B criterion, and the addition of a specifier. Definitions and criterion under A remain unchanged.
