Mental Disorder

Transgenderism is a mental disorder.

Before you start with the hate mail and threats, I’m not the one saying that. The American Psychiatric Association is. According to the APA Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, “people whose gender at birth is contrary to the one they identify with” are diagnosed with “gender dysphoria”–a mental disorder.

What’s next an “Anorexic Department” at Target where they mark size “0” clothes as XXL so as to accommodate the very thin who “identify” as very fat? That would be stupid. But their current policy is more than stupid—it is dangerous because it lets predators, peeping Toms and the more than 800,000 registered sex offenders walk into the bathroom and fitting rooms right along with the cross dressers.
