    Thank you for linking to the petition telling the APA to remove Transgender from the DSM-5!

    Are pregnant woman considered mentally ill? Not since women's suffrage.

    Transition especially early on is extremely stressful and confusing and many people like myself may not have made it with out qualified caring therapy.
    There a a very few people in comparison who needed no therapy at all.

    I am not advocating for trans people to transition without psychological care. I am advocating for our removal form the DSM. As long as trans people are pathologized we will never be included in federal legislation.

    When we remove the APA's brick in the foundation trans people are pathologized with the extremists foundation will come crashing down. They will no longer have this fact to hurl as a last resort when all other of there allegations have been disproved.

    We gain nothing by being included in the DSM. The way out is scary sure but it is imperative we do so. Thank you for signing this petition
