Shapiro is doing no one any good. He’s actually pushing bad science. He is popularizing transgenderism, but in false terms. The DSM V lists gender dysphoria – it validates it. Shapiro is saying ‘transgenderism is a mental condition’ that is not the opinion of clinical psychology. In the same way that his supporters argue ‘you can’t refute biology!’ ‘biology is true whether you believe it or not!’ – well, biology is a science and field of investigative study – it is neither true or false. I would have thought the people who balked so at being told to ‘trust the science’ over vaccinations would maybe investigate the scientific method at some point, and not simply find another strong grandfatherly hand to get their nose. Something being listed as a symptom of mental health issues – gender dysphoria, does not mean that transgenderism makes you mentally ill. This is not logical. This is asinine. This is a way to dismiss the idea of things that make you uncomfortable by killing anything that exhibits a hint of its instantiation. Which.. is frightening and extremist. The DSM V states ‘If needed, the use of hormone therapy may also prove beneficial.’ ‘Current case reports offer no evidence that psychotherapy offers total and long-standing about face of cross-gender identity. It is important to state that all transsexuals are not the same, and thus are not part of a uniform group. Early diagnosis and treatment decreases the chance for individuals to suffer depression, emotional agony, and to attempt suicide. It is equally significant to state that gender dysphoria is not identical to homosexuality. Each individual goes through a unique change, some may want a short-term change, and be content with cross-dressing, while others may desire a complete change, and seek gender assignment surgery (Royal College of Psychiatrists, 2013). Those who are born having ambiguous genitalia may meet the criteria for the identification of gender dysphoria.’ – SHAPIRO IS CONTRADICTING THE MAIN MEDICAL CONSULTATION TEXT BOOK FOR PSYCHIATRISTS BY STATING TRANSGENDERISM IS A MENTAL DISORDER: FACT.
