Too... many... memories....


This is great advice for the Yes Campaign's folks in Maine, considering how much their strategy has depended on parents' fears that their kids will turn out gay.

This make me happy! Leave it the Onion...

Not working... :( I really wanted to see it!

If you click through and try to watch on the entire post page it works. I think it doesn't like the Comedy Central video in Waymon's post.

These are kids with GID
Literally.
Effeminate children, consistently, going back into the 1950's and the earliest editions and continuing without interruption into the current day, have been classified as what is currently called "Gender Identity Disorder in Youth".

When Homosexuality in Adults was removed from the DSM in 1973, this was left in, and never removed.

So all of these kids are still trans.

And many of you were as children as well.

GID in youth generally tend to break down into a large majority who grow up perfectly heteronormative, without any issues. A large chunk of the rest mature into gay, lesbian, and bisexual adults.

And then there are those few who continue into GID in adulthood -- the Trans community.

And for those who doubt:
From the ICD-10:
Gender Identity Disorder of Childhood (64.2) has separate criteria for girls and for boys.
For girls:
1. The individual shows persistent and intense distress about being a girl, and has a stated desire to be a boy (not merely a desire for any perceived cultural advantages to being a boy) or insists that she is a boy;
2. Either of the following must be present:
a. Persistent marked aversion to normative feminine clothing and insistence on wearing stereotypical masculine clothing;
b. Persistent repudiation of female anatomical structures, as evidenced by at least one of the following:
1. An assertion that she has, or will grow, a penis;
2. Rejection of urination in a sitting position;
3. Assertion that she does not want to grow breasts or menstruate.
3. The girl has not yet reached puberty;
4. The disorder must have been present for at least 6 months.
For boys:
1. The individual shows persistent and intense distress about being a boy, and has a desire to be a girl, or, more rarely, insists that he is a girl.
2. Either of the following must be present:
a. Preoccupation with stereotypic female activities, as shown by a preference for either cross-dressing or simulating female attire, or by an intense desire to participate in the games and pastimes of girls and rejection of stereotypical male toys, games, and activities;
b. Persistent repudiation of male anatomical structures, as evidenced by at least one of the following repeated assertions:
1. That he will grow up to become a woman (not merely in the role);
2. That his penis or testes are disgusting or will disappear;
3. That it would be better not to have a penis or testes.
3. The boy has not yet reached puberty;
4. The disorder must have been present for at least 6 months.

The DSM-IV references the same requirements.

This reminder is brought to you by the Dyssonance School of Commonalities, reminding people to end erasure of trans lives since 2006.

Okay... I really thought this was funny, but what always cracks me up is when people believe The Onion.
