Be Careful What You Wish For

The transgender blogs are celebrating, as "gender identity disorder," which replaced "transsexualism" (largely because of the transgender kooks) is now "gender dysphoria."  Mr. "Autumn" Sandeen goes so far as to crow and quote "Dana" Beyers, who makes the following incorrect observation:
“A right-winger can’t go out and say all trans people are mentally ill because if you are not dysphoric, that can’t be diagnosed from afar,” Beyer said. “It no longer matters what your body looks like, what you want to do to it, all of that is irrelevant as far as the APA goes.”
Sorry fellows, but most of you, like Mr. Sandeen, are covered by "transvestic disorder."  As to what Beyer claims, well, if you are not "dysphoric" and therefore cannot be diagnosed with a mental disorder, that just makes you a "happy pervert."  In another words, you have to admit that your behavior is chosen, and therefore you have absolutely NO basis to claim things like a right to strut your junk in women's spaces.

The simple fact is, what was called "gender identity disorder" in DSM-IV, and "transsexualism" before that, never really applied to the vast majority of transgender people.  Almost all of them are actually covered by what was called "fetishtic transvestism" and is now called "transvestic disorder."

So, hey, you got what you want...and hey, you are still disordered.
