Transgender identity shouldn’t be classed as mental disorder say researchers

Comment

It's a shame you've buried a sensible point (re: shared care) amongst callous and compassion-less rejection of an entire patient group. I take it you tell menopausal women to buy their HRT online? Gender dysphoria is still a condition, and should be managed by doctors - the point here is that the label it has as a mental health condition is outdated. That doesn't remove it's status as a manageable condition, and it doesn't let you wash your hands of a patient group you seem so keen to disregard. I genuinely would like to see a consultation where you implement your last statement - CAMHS and eating disorder services are equally problematic, but I doubt you would simply refuse to get involved in their care.
