We see scenes like this deranged person since their chosen criminal/candidate lost.

From December 2012.

On Saturday, the American Psychiatric Association’s board of trustees approved changes to the latest version of The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-V) that will remove the term “Gender Identity Disorder” (GID) which has historically been used by mental health professionals to diagnose transgender individuals. Simultaneously, the term “Gender Dysphoria” will be used to describe emotional distress over “a marked incongruence between one’s experienced/expressed gender and assigned gender.”

Some transgender advocates see this approved change in the DSM-V as an important step toward removing stigma against transgender people based on false stereotypes about gender identity and expression, as well as the word "disorder." Transgender people may no longer be subject to a lifelong default diagnosis of their mental health.
We see an opinion by a powerful special interest group used to suppress treatment of what was formerly considered a psychiatric malady, gender dysphoria. The decoupling of sex and gender is a long held political theory of the Left. The APA simply bowed to political pressure.

There is real harm to perverting gender dysphoria into something that doesn't need treatment. Transgender individuals have a suicide rate north of 40%. There are also other significant adverse impacts such as the destruction of women's sports and set asides to encourage women owned businesses. The mental health of the affected individuals is of no concern, reshaping the culture to fit the Leftist mold is the important thing.

A gender disorder or gender dysphoria represents unique cases where the individual is uncertain or confused by their apparent gender identity that is different than their "sex" identity. It is predominately caused by social pressures that disparage anyone that has a gender identity different from their physical sex. In short society has created a mental disorder for those that don't conform with the general beliefs of the people when it comes to self-identification.

Most transgenders don't have this problem and citing cases were some do does not represent that a gender identity that is different from the physical sex of the person is a mental disorder. The treatment for gender disorder and gender dysphoria is for the person accept the fact that their gender identity being different from their physical sex is a very normal thing for many, albeit a small percentage, of our population. Eliminating the guilt and the negative emotional responses created by adverse social "norms" is the key to successful treatment.

A gender identity that is different from the physical sex of the person has been recorded as existing throughout history. Some societies simply accepted it, some even elevated it to the status of a virtue, and in these societies there wasn't the gender disorders or gender dysphoria that we find in repressive societies because the person was accepted for who they are and not condemned because of who they are.

Based upon the corruption, brutality, inhumanity, immorality, dishonesty, and incompetence of the Trump administration the White House is the dirtiest house in America and there's no known cleanser that with remove the stains of the Trump Administration.
