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.
