Liss: O HAI. U R NOT DISORDERED ANYMORE!
[Link goes to story about "gender identity disorder" being dropped from the DSM and replaced by "gender dysphoria."]
Eastsidekate: Huzzah! I knew something felt different when I woke up this morning.
Liss: Are you euphoric to be dysphoric?
Eastsidekate: I have been nonstop partying with all the money I didn't give to Mitt Romney's victory wallet!
Liss: I love how being trans* is still considered a psychiatric disorder, though. And I know there's a bunch of Stuff surrounding whether it's kept in or not—like as long as it's a diagnosable disorder, people with insurance can get access to healthcare with it—but it's still garbage that requirement exists at all, so.
Eastsidekate: People privileged enough to have insurance.
Eastsidekate: And prove they are sufficiently disordered to use it for Teh Trans.
Eastsidekate: What Julia said.
