I have never suggested women have mutilating surgery for fun.

Leithlurker Sun 30-Sep-12 23:48:46

No you only suggested they do so because they are mentally ill!

Are you serious? Homosexuals have a psychological disorder?

No. No they do not.

EatsBrainsAndLeaves Sun 30-Sep-12 23:53:33

Being lesbian or gay is not a psychological disorder. Lesbian and gay people do not mutilate their bodies to be lesbian or gay

You have yet to provide the evidence for that, LRD and others have asked you several times but still no show. Until you provide proper documentation that can be read by everyone, it is only your assessment of what mental state others are in.

Are men also mentally ill to want to transform from M to F?

It bothers me because young women are going through mutilating surgery. These young women are suffering psychologically. They should have proper help, not just be offered mutilating surgery

Leithlurker Mon 01-Oct-12 00:05:28

So women who have healthy breasts reduced in size, women who undergo cosmetic surgery, women who have healthy breast tissue but who fear they are going to develop breast cancer they must all be mad as well then?

What about men and women who scar themselves, have implants placed inside themselves, have permanent skin bleaching. All mad as hatters eh? In fact who would you say is sane eats?

Apart from I said something along those lines earlier Kim I agree with you, lets bring back the big victorian asylums and put all the gay and slightly odd people in them and be done with it eh!

MmeLindor Mon 01-Oct-12 00:14:11

Why do you insist that they are not of sound mind? Don't you see how insulting that is?

I haven't researched this, but I would assume by the time a person gets to the stage of considering surgery, that they have been working through their issues for quite some time.

It's hardly a spur of the moment thing to decide to do.

But lesbian and gay people dont need surgery and hormones to become lesbian or gay. How is it comparable?

sashh Mon 01-Oct-12 05:15:56

OK, I didn't follow the link, because I don't like to follow links when no one has said what I am linking to.

I have read various people's comments, so Eats let me make this personal.

I had my ears pierced when I was 14, I'd wanted them done from age 5. It is a form of mutilation, I asked for repeatedly.

Now in my 40s I am not happier than just after they were pierced.

Do I think I should have had psychological treatment instead of a piercing gun?
