Transgender health issues will no longer be classified as mental and behavioural disorders under big changes to the World Health Organization’s global manual of diagnoses…
A World Health Organization expert said it now understands transgender is “not actually a mental health condition”.
Human Rights Watch says the change will have a “liberating effect worldwide”.
In the latest manual, called the ICD-11, gender incongruence is defined as a marked and persistent incongruence between a person’s experienced gender and assigned sex.
In the previous version – ICD-10 – this was considered a gender identity disorder, in the chapter entitled mental and behavioural disorders.
Dr Lale Say, a reproductive health expert at the World Health Organization, said: “It was taken out from mental health disorders because we had a better understanding that this was not actually a mental health condition, and leaving it there was causing stigma.
“So in order to reduce the stigma, while also ensuring access to necessary health interventions, this was placed in a different chapter.”
This Doom is a couple of months old, but I just noticed it. It falls into the declining standards caused by Equality-Diversity mania. Even what it is to be crazy is not what it used to be.
Student activists gathered to discuss prison abolition at a teach-in on Wednesday night, bringing forward their concerns with the prison-industrial complex and proposing ways to move toward its eventual disintegration.
“Prison Abolition 101” was organized by RailRoad, a student collective that works within the University and with local organizations to radically change the justice and prison systems to move toward “a world where the Prison Industrial Complex has been destroyed,” according to their Facebook page…
“The end goal is to not have prisons as any form of incarceration,” said RailRoad member Grace Austin ’23, while presenting at the event. “Punishment at any stage doesn’t guarantee any kind of growth.”
Replacing jails by, say, canings is a good idea. Eliminating all punishment whatsoever (except again Nazi white supremacists, of course), is an idea that can only have arisen from academia.
Notice that this is universalism, carried to this life. Universalism is the idea that all are saved, that God would not dare punish anybody because that would make him mean. Same thing here.
During all 152 minutes of the film, men dominate the screen for 98% of the time. And when I say men, I mean white and straight
Attacks on whites continue to grow. All whites are racist by definition, thus white supremacists, and white supremacists are Nazis, and killing Nazis isn’t murder, it’s mitzva.
Two Conservative strategists say both the party and leader Andrew Scheer need to modernize their approach to social issues if they want to convince more Canadians to vote for them.
In an opinion piece published by the Globe and Mail on Wednesday, long-time Conservative strategists Melissa Lantsman and Jamie Ellerton said Andrew Scheer’s “visible discomfort” with issues like same sex marriage during the recent election campaign warrant serious introspection by the party. Ellerton also managed Scheer’s road tour during the election and served as a spokesperson for the campaign.
“For the Conservative movement to grow, unequivocal support for LGBTQ people cannot be up for debate,” they wrote.
They said the party “should consider breaking from the past” and adopting “a more contemporary conservatism that resonates more broadly across the country,” adding that LGBTQ rights “ought not to be a question at all.”
This is why conservatives lose—in democracies. The majority is always “right”.
“Radical traditionalist” Catholics, who may make up the largest single group of serious antisemites in America, subscribe to an ideology that is rejected by the Vatican and some 70 million mainstream American Catholics.
Adherents of radical traditional Catholicism, or “integrism,” routinely pillory Jews as “the perpetual enemy of Christ” and worse, reject the ecumenical efforts of the Vatican, and sometimes even assert that recent popes have all been illegitimate. These groups are incensed by the liberalizing reforms of the 1962-65 Second Vatican Council, which condemned hatred for the Jews and rejected the accusation that Jews are collectively responsible for deicide in the form of the crucifixion of Christ.
Radical traditionalists are not the same as Catholics who call themselves “traditionalists” — people who prefer the old Latin Mass to the mass now typically said in vernacular languages — although the radicals, as well, like their liturgy in Latin. They also embrace extremely conservative social ideals with respect to women.

These Resurrection denialists are becoming increasingly emboldened, as the next item proves.
This is not about limiting anyone’s free speech….
He said that he found posts denying the Holocaust “deeply offensive”, but he didn’t think Facebook should take them down “because I think there are things that different people get wrong”. At this very moment, there are still Holocaust deniers on Facebook, and Google still takes you to the most repulsive Holocaust denial sites with a simple click…
Maybe it’s time to tell Mark Zuckerberg and the CEOs of these companies: you already allowed one foreign power to interfere in our elections, you already facilitated one genocide in Myanmar, do it again and you go to jail.
Ah, good. Have the ADL decide what is “hate speech” and what is allowed. What could go wrong?
There are lots of Holocaust denial sites, but there are probably more Resurrecion denial sites, and there was no even more important in history than the Resurrection.
Cohen also said “The fictitious Protocols of the Elders of Zion look as valid as an ADL report.” One wonders if realized the meaning of that.
Three cattle were found with stab wounds in the hamlet of Linwood and two sheep were fatally slashed and marked at Bramshaw village. Satanic symbols were also found daubed on Bramshaw Church.
One sheep was found dead with a cross and a pentagram, a symbol associated with magic, spray painted on to its body…
Days later, Reverend David Bacon discovered an inverted cross and the number 666 had been painted on the door of St Peter’s Church in Bramshaw…
“I’ve been here 15 years and seen a lot of stuff, but nothing like this.
“It could just be kids, but I don’t think it is, given the context.”
You’ll have to replace Christianity with something.
