Should identifying as LGBTQ+ be classified as a mental disorder and treated as such?

  • Lgbtq+ is a joke

    LGBTQ+ is a joke, As I've already said. LAME LAME LAME LAME LAME. People just want attention. I've met LGBTQ+ people and they are out of their minds. It's a joke. They just think about "free love" and dumb stuff. LGBTQ people must have been born on a highway because that's where most accidents happen.

  • "You didn't meet anyone who's LGBTQ+, And *I* have, And I think they're nice, And you didn't like them, So. . . Therefore it's not an illness. "

    "It makes no sense. The WHO didn't say it's an illness, So there. "
    "There's no physical evidence to suggest that it's an illness. "
    "People were treated badly, So it shouldn't be a mental illness. "
    They're a minority of society. Some say really damaging things. And to show how ridiculous this argument is- what about basically every mental illness there is? Is there *physical evidence*? They act oddly, And do things differently, And yet it's a mental illness. Not anything you're born with, But I'm talking about the mental diseases you develop.
    However, Some of these people mutilate themselves to fit with the ideals that they've fixated upon. Do we call anorexia an illness? Yes, Because they literally starve themselves to death. Then why not people who identify as LGBTQ+?

  • Absolutely a disease

    Before LGBTQ became accepted in society, The root cause could be found and addressed in kind and ethical therapy. People become homosexual because a man or woman did not get the proper attention from a same sex role model growing up and/or they were sexually abused. Transgenderism occurs when a man or woman doesn't get proper attention from an opposite gender role model and/or something occurred in childhood to cement the idea that whatever sex he or she was born as is wrong. And those beliefs can be worked through and solved with therapy and psychiatric treatment.

  • LGB not sure, But TQ yes

    LGBTQ stands for Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Queer(Question sexual identity)
    I'm not sure about LGB as right now it is concrete in society. However, Transgender and those who question their sexual identity after hitting puberty should definitely be considered a mental disorder.
    It used to be called Gender Identity Disorder but due to activists the term has been labelled improper. However the term is pretty accurate. This mental state also leads to increase rate of suicidalility as research shows(just google it). This doesn't seem to change whether the change is accepted or not, They suicide just as much.
    This "condition" should be treated as if a mental disorder because the delusion that a boy can be a girl just by thinking it isn't helping society. It is lying to society, Lying to children and affecting their growth development. Transgender people have a mental disorder, We aren't doing any good by pretending girls and boys can swap.

  • They are insane

    I have met people who believe in the LGBTQ+ community and they are insane. It's just a joke. It makes no sense. I can understand the LGB part but not the rest. ESPECIALLY since this is the same community that believes in +2 genders. They believe that if you say you're a dog, You're a dog. It makes no sense.

  • Obviously, No we shouldn't.

    Considering there's absolutely no evidence to support such a claim concerning LGBTQ and transgender individuals, And that fact that you'll be hard pressed to find a single medical organization making said claim. It makes absolutely no sense to classify homosexuality and transgenderism as a mental health issue. The World Health Organization recently published their 2017 list of mental disorders and nowhere in it does it discuss being LGBTQ or transgender being a mental disorder.

  • Yeah, Definitely no

    Anyone who claims that LGBTQ+ is a mental illness has never met anyone who is LGBTQ+, Or if they have they didn't have a good experience. (Not everyone in a group is a saint anyway) It's not a mental illness caused by "missing mother/father rolls" there are plenty of LGBTQ+ people who have still married male and female parents, Including myself. The argument that years back it was considered a mental illness is ridiculous as well due to the fact that back then you would be sent to a mental asylum, Given poor conditions of living, And be put in isolation for something as minor as ADHD so I think it's safe to assume that no one knew enough about mental illness back then. Sorry, But anyway you cut it you can't consider it a mental illness.

  • Sexuality is Genetic.

    It has been proven, Many times over, That sexuality ISN'T a choice. Https://www. Livescience. Com/50058-being-gay-not-a-choice. Html. To the point of multiple countries that in the past did classify being homosexual, Have disproved it as a sickness. Therefore, Nor making it a mental disorder. Example, Sweden - until 1979 homosexuality was classed as a mental disorder.

  • No, Why would it be?

    Identifying as LGBTQ+ is a way of how people feel towards each other. A mental disorder effects a person’s daily life and thinking, And being a LGBTQ+ really doesn’t seem to effect a person in anyway. It just effects the way they feel towards a certain gender, But think about it, Just cause you like someone, It isn’t a disorder.
