Is Transgenderism a Psychotic Mental Disorder?

HYPOCRISY ALERT!

By Pastor Carl Gallups

WEB-MD steps all over itself in order to “protect” Transgenderism, but winds up (unintentionally) defining it as a “Psychotic mental disorder!”

webmdhypocrisyIt seems the godless Left just can’t help themselves. Professing to be wise – they continue to be exposed as fools.

In light of Obama’s most recent insanity, and the federal imposition of “transgender” bathroom, shower, and locker room privileges upon our children’s most private lives – I decided to take a closer look at how the medical community was attempting to “dance” around the issue in order to cope with the most recent perverse and politically-correct leftist agenda. What I discovered was most interesting… See if you don’t agree.

THIS IS HOW WEB-MD begins its “definition” of Gender Dysphoria (Transgenderism) It used to be called Gender Identity Disorder.

“People who have gender dysphoria FEEL STRONGLY that they are not the gender they PHYSICALLY APPEAR TO BE. For example, a person who has a penis and ALL OTHER physical traits of a MALE might FEEL instead that HE is actually a FEMALE. That person would have an INTENSE DESIRE to have a female body and to be accepted by others as a female.” (Emphasis added) [1]

This is a fairly typical definition of the condition – found across the board on officially recognized medical sites and in modern medical journals.

THEN WEB-MD DECLARES: 

“Gender dysphoria used to be called “gender identity disorder.” But the mismatch between body and internal sense of gender is NOT A MENTAL ILLNESS.”

The term “mental illness” is hyperlinked so that you can see Web-MD’s interpretation of “mental illness.” And this is where it gets very interesting!

WEB-MD’s DEFINITION OF MENTAL ILLNESS: 

When you click on the hyperlink to “mental illness” you will come to a page titled TYPES OF MENTAL ILLNESSES. The third one down is labeled “Psychotic disorders…”

Here is how WEB-MD states that definition:

“Psychotic disorders: Psychotic disorders involve distorted awareness and thinking. Two of the most common symptoms of psychotic disorders are [1] hallucinations — the experience of images or sounds that are not real, such as hearing voices — and [2] DELUSIONS, which are false fixed beliefs that the ill person accepts as true, despite evidence to the contrary. Schizophrenia is an example of a psychotic disorder.” [2]

In other words – a psychotic disorder is the condition in which a person THINKS and BELIEVES that he/she is something that they are NOT – by all identifying scientific standards of reality.

And what is the definition of Schizophrenia? Here is the Mayo Clinic’s definition:

“Schizophrenia is a severe brain disorder in which people interpret REALITY abnormally. Schizophrenia may result in some combination of hallucinations, DELUSIONS, and extremely DISORDERED THINKING and behavior.” [3]

So – a person who has all the DNA and physical conditions of being a male (i.e. – male genetics, male sex organs, male characteristics, etc.), who FEELS they would RATHER be a female, and they are severely unhappy (dysphoria) because they are not a female – isn’t that EXACTLY the definition of a PSYCHOTIC DISORDER under symptom number two? Are they not in a state of “delusion?” Are they not “interpreting reality in an extremely abnormal fashion?” The answers are self evident.

TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT THE WORDS USED IN THE DEFINITION OF “PSYCHOTIC”
(according to WEB-MD):

Distorted “awareness.” Distorted “thinking.” Is not the gender dysphoria “state of mind” DELUSIONAL by its own definition? Is it not a FALSE FIXED BELIEF despite hardcore, biological, scientifically verifiable EVIDENCE TO THE CONTRARY? Of course it is! There’s no way around it. A third grader can understand the clear connection.

In reality, WEB-MD identifies “gender dysphoria” as a mental illness called a Psychotic Disorder. Sorry liberals – you can’t have it “both” ways after all.

While understanding the very real heartache that can accompany any mental illness, those of us who are rational would contend that the answer to the problem is not to simply call the illness “normal” and then look for ways to enable the illness and then to impose it upon the rest of society as “perfectly acceptable” and even celebrated. Rather, like any other true mental illness – it must be identified for what it is and then appropriately treated.

We would not dream of telling a sufferer of the mental disorder classified as Bulimia nervosa that we will now provide a “place” for them to “practice” their disorder – and will allow them special regurgitation rooms so that they can feel “normal.” Would we? Maybe we should – after all – don’t we want everyone to “feel” accepted – regardless of their “self-identity?” Do you see where this insane thinking takes us?

Isaiah 5:20:
Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.

Deuteronomy 22:5
A woman must not wear men’s clothing, nor a man wear women’s clothing, for the LORD your God detests anyone who does this.

Leviticus 18:22
Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable.

Romans 1:24-29
24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.

26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature;

27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.

28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. 29 They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice.
