Glad to sign , as you may have noticed they are wishing to expand the classifications and such as to how Transexual woman are treated and classified within the new grouping . Not good Not good at all , I dislike the whole thing in general . I am not completely convinced that my well being should be dictated by a group or and individual who supposes to be wiser and more educated then I am , I find this hard to believe because they ( those that make such rules ) dont suffer nor have suffered from this often times dibilitating disorder . And as far as CD is concerned who do they think they are dictating what you do within your little world , do what makes you happy as long as no one is physicaly in danger from you doing so why would you even have to be reclassed within the new rules . F them , go be yourself .

Take your time to listen and I will give mine up to speak .I wish only to guide you to the place I searched for so long ago , take my hand and walk with us for our time is now , your time is approaching ...

Just signed.  Something about this classification sounds illogical to me:

If one is cross dressing because that person is exploring the idea of transition, is it a fetish?  This definition seems to classify it as so.

But transsexualism is not a fetish.  If, therefore a psychiatric professional diagnoses "gender dysphoria," is that person suddenly not pursuing a fetish anymore?  Come on.  Give us all a break.

When they dropped Gender Identity Disorder from the list they replaced it with Transvestite Fetishism (i think it's called) for no other reason than to have some trans* people under psychiatric supervision.  In other words if you are cross dressed and ever become sexually aroused at the same time ( it does happen) you are suddenly a fetishist.  Strange how hung up American Psychiatrists are.  More than any others they see their role as making people fit into society rather than making people happy with the way they are.

The APA needs to be concerned about REAL mental disorders!

Cross dressing is still illegal in Oakland California. It's still on the books.

Signed the petition. It's very plain to see what's going on. Trusting a psychiatrist ? As of right now, no longer an option for me. I have enough going on inside my head. I am convinced letting a Psychiatrist in there would only make it worse by an order of magnitude! Thanks for the heads up ! ;)
Sir Arthur Stanley Eddington OM (28 December 188222 November 1944)

We have found a strange footprint on the shores of the unknown. We have devised profound theories, one after another, to account for it s origins. At last, we have succeeded in reconstructing the creature that made the footprint. And lo! It is our own.
