What? What?

What? What?

Postby Berzerk » Thu Jun 21, 2018 2:09 pm

The World Health Organization will stop classifying transgender people as mentally ill.

WHO classifies 'gaming disorder' as mental health condition.

Well....

A gaming disorder. Politicians can now place a tax, this has already been discussed in a different post on TiZ, on game sales now. So you can imagine that in the sue happy USA, it will only be a matter of time before game devs are going to be held responsible for this, and the lawsuits will start.

Forget the fact that parents should be parenting, and limiting a kids time on ANY electronic device. Phone, console, computer, you get the idea. No, they won't do that. They will wait until the fire burns down the house and then sue someone for the fact that their kid can't do anything but stare at a wall in a padded room, or the child takes their own life because "The hero in the game told me to".

Slightly off topic....

I'm seeing this more and more. A child commits suicide because of cyberbullying. Or that is what you hear about. Hate to tell anyone this, but bully's have been around for a lot longer than any of us. Anyway, the parents want to sue someone for this. Don't really know who. If they took more of an active involvement in their child's life, when they were alive, perhaps they may have seen the warning signs, and prevented it. Talk to the kid, find out what is going on in their life, and help where you can.

It may be considered cold, but I don't feel for parents who are like this. Yep, I know that parenting doesn't come with a manual, and all the manual's that have been written about it are a big pile of badukey. You learn as you go and ask when you are unsure.

Dr. Spock, supposedly a child expert, had his own son commit suicide. Yep, sounds like an expert to me....

I just think it’s really odd. The only thing I can think of making gaming a disorder for tax taking transgender off disorder making healthcare pay for the operation. It just ticks me off that I am now considered a freak compared to a guy who wants to cut his joystick off. I really do want to see where the money comes from for WHO and the political leanings of these so called experts that are the last word at WHO. That’s like telling me this guy has no issues.

The only issue I have with either of these topics is the generalization... there will still be trans people that suffer from mental health issues connected to their gender issues (a comparatively large number compared to the 'binary genders'), and there will be people classified as having gaming disorders that could be classified as 'normal'.
Will 'gaming disorder' extend to sports fanatics?

I'm of two beliefs.

1. I think everyone should live as they want to live, as long as they're not hurting other people. If you're a transgender person, I will treat you like a fellow human being & love you if you're a good & decent person.

2. There's a reason they call themselves "transgender" -- they're not really that gender! Listen, if you want to identify as the other gender, I'm fine with that. But men transitioning to women can't give birth & women transitioning to men can't grow a real penis. These are facts. Just because you identify as one, that doesn't make you one. If this is considered "hateful," I'm sorry, but I deal in facts & the real world. I love you as a fellow human being, but I'm not willing to lie to make you happy.

Sorry, this isn't normal:

What are we to do with the B's??? They're transphobic because they only view 2 genders... damn bisexuals and their transphobic behavior....

fuck all this gender trans bullshit talk... we all know there are 2 genders, even if you are born with a dick AND a vag and are technically a hermaphrodite, you will still look like EITHER a boy or a girl. and if you think genders are fluid or some shit, go take a vist to the middle east and see if you can "bring awareness to the "cause"" there... fuckin retards...

Postby PhysicistSarah » Thu Jun 21, 2018 11:19 pm

Hello Everyone,

I just happened to be watching this thread, and aren't even active on this website at all normally. I just so happened to be looking at an old version of Jump Start 3rd Grade (Pretty much my favorite education game from my childhood) (I wonder what made me go into science given my love of science-fiction :D).

I just wanted to address some points that might seem more obvious to me since I'm transgender myself.

Being transgender in and of itself is not a mental disorder. Not just because I'm saying that, but because many medical organizations and experts say the same thing, such as the American Psychological Association & WPATH.

It essentially boils down to this: trans people who have completed transition are still transgender people. They no longer have serious mental stress related to their body (For the most part) and live as the gender that their brain say we are in society. It doesn't make any sense to say that they would still have a mental disorder.

Whereas trans people who have not completed transition may still have very hard feelings (To put it politely, this is like saying being tortured by the North Koreans in the earlier post is "Unpleasant") arising from the conflict between brain and body. Where your brain says that you are one gender due to a probable error in early gender development. (The exact cause of someone to be transgender isn't known, there are only competing hypothesis currently)

This is why (Among other reasons) why classifying trans people as having a mental disorder is inaccurate. Trans people who have gender dysphoria, have a mental disorder, which is treated by transitioning to their target gender.

With regards to gaming addiction being created. I mean, people are addicted to just about everything. If you can name the subject, there is probably someone addicted to it. To name a few: coffee, making money, sex, drugs, DND, gaming, art, maths...


Also, don't think that trans people are so far off all the time. After all, your computer uses performance optimizations, and VLSI, which was, in part, made by trans people ;D Look up Lynn Conway wikipedia page. She's an electrical engineer that develoed performance optimizations for computer architectures and worked on the VLSI (Very Large Scale Integration of computer chips)

Hope this helped, and happy summer solstice everyone! Enjoy the longest day of the year! (I would have posted a lot of links to supporting material, but I can't apparently.)

What's the best part about being trans? This isn't even my final form...

Don't forget who funds the organizations like the UN and WHO. It's mostly big time banks that can dictate societal changes or they pull the funding. That's why these shit orgs do what they do. They're all corrupt f**kheads.

The fact that one identifies as Man/Woman or both doesn't necessary bother me. The fact that you tell me that I have to find either sexual attractive does. Also if they want to label people who play video games mentally unstable, than what are all of these celebrities and Politicians than! Sane members of society?

If there is some logic in making decisions of who is sane or unstable , Politicians and big shots should be first to be in category of mentally unstable .
Making everyday decisions that will fire-off , ruin or kill many lives sound very mentally ill to me , but on other hand , i have 'gaming disorder' , so what the heck i know ? :roll:

Life's all about stereotypes and being Biased towards others and even things...
Mankind; we are programmed from birth to accept what ever is told to us, no matter how dumb it sounds. Is the world round or flat ? How do you know? You read it in a book.....?!

We are constantly bombarded with "how you should live","what you should eat","What you should look like", Follow the heard... Listen to others opinion cos your's don't matter...

Wake up people ! Life is short and gets faster all the time....

WHO have to have something to fight against so next week, "Watching TV Soaps is a mental illness...."

Also remember the "Government is made by the people FOR the people", shame most politicians don't remember this.... We need faster ways of getting rid of assholes in power, Percentage of people say "Your doing it badly - Get the Fek Out!", we get a new leader, like we used to....

Asshole in power minimum of 4 years..... The world can be fekked in a day....

Bladerunner is just down the road....
