VS.

No.

Side Score: 7

I can't say for sure, but it is abnormal behavior shared by a very tiny percentage of the population. It is certainly not the norm.

Side: Yes.

"Mental illness refers to a wide range of mental health conditions — disorders that affect your mood, thinking and behavior"

Disorder-disrupt the systematic functioning or neat arrangement of.

So given the definition we can clearly see that homosexuality is a Mental Disorder. I come to this conclusion because in the definition is says disorder(definition above) which relates in this definition because being homosexual disrupts the systematic functioning of the reproductive system. additionally it is a disorder that effects your mood thinking and behavior for the same sex : )

One of the biggest studies on the experiences of transgender people was the 2011 National Transgender Discrimination Survey (NTDS). It found that in the U.S., 41 percent of transgender and gender non-conforming people had attempted suicide, compared to a national average of just 4.6 percent.Jun 22, 2015

What is the reasoning for the above stats ?

Side: Yes.

Such a small percentage of people are trans, makes you happy hell do it. But intellectually believing your one gender than the one you were physically born with has to be something.

Side: Yes.

Trans gendered people! So transgenders are not mentally ill, lets get that out of the air. Transgenders are born a gender and they have natural tendencies to look like the opposite gender. If changing the appearance of ones self is a mental illness than anyone and everyone that uses makeup is mentally ill also. Because transgenders and people that use makeup have 1 thing in common, changing or altering the way one looks.

Side: No.

Nice man, Because you yourself just proved a point! Yes you actually did bet i need to show you? Disorder-disrupt the systematic functioning or neat arrangement of. So by your very words you in yourself and everyone on this planet has a mental disorder. Anyone that gets into a car wreck and they have trauma and or a swollen brain they have a mental disorder because their thinking is going to be different than before.

And being homosexual is not a disorder also by your very definition. disorders that affect your mood, thinking and behavior If being gay was a mental disorder than something would of had to change in order for the behavior to be affected but wait, a homosexuals behavior nor thinking is affected in any way different than that of a heterosexual.

You can not and will not sit their looking all pretty and smart without facts. By definition being gay is not a mental disorder. And since when was this debate about homosexuals? It is about transgenders which also in definition do not have a mental disorder because nothing is changing their behavior. If you wanted to get on the topic of transsexuals than yes I would have to agree with you because transitioning does in a way change their behavior.

Transgenders change the way they look not their sex organs!!!

If a person has body integrity identity disorder and they want to cut off their leg, we say they have an illness. If a person has gender dismorphia and they want to cut off their sex organs, why would we say that it's normal?

People find all kinds of ways to cope with what goes on in their head. If they want to cut off their arm, fine. If they want to mutilate their bits and pieces, whatever. People are free to be who they are, but let's not pretend its just a common normal behavior. Feeling the need to spend lots of money to remove what one thinks is the "wrong" body part is an affliction.

Side: Yes.

What do these facts tell you ?

Side: Yes.

That it is not a choice. And that Sintar is a total ass hole and needs to learn what he is talking about! And yes I use numbers to back my statements up.

So 41 percent have attempted or have committed suicide, do those numbers bother anyone here? No they do not according to most of yall. Because most of you think they need mental help and need to be the gender they where born. Do yall not see that therapy and the other shit is what makes that 41 percent possible.

Side: No.

Yes transgenders are mentally ill. Any MAN who thinks he is a woman is delusional and needs mental healthcare. You liberals will defend anything.

Side: Yes.

And you say your gay!!! You are most defiantly not part of the LGBT community, You know why because you do not support transgenders. DO NOT tell me you support them because you just said Any MAN who thinks he is a woman is delusional and needs mental healthcare. That is not in any way supporting them. And I would dare you to try to say you do support any transgenders.

We should be on the same side of these type of topics if your a real LGBT community member!

Side: No.
