    I guess you.missed the few times I have said anyone making fun of any person with dementia is scum. As I said to you previously I wouldn't wish dementia on my worst enemy.

    As for trans people having mental health issues It's simply a bullshit claim as I pointed out in my other post there are rigorous checks made to make sure that we don't have any mental health issues before we can transition so yes I get worked up when such ridiculous claims are made and I don't apologise for getting worked up about it. I would at least hope my previous post about the process of transitioning helped to educate and help educate at least some people in this regard.


    tabzer we have had some heated debates but that doesn't mean I don't like or respect you for standing up for what you think is right. Unlike others here you tend to stay away from making the ridiculous claims that other right wing members have been making. And you also haven't been so ridiculous as to declare yourself so all is good :)

    John Cena cuts my hair, you can't see it.

    And I am working on a bill of rights currently, I actually have 6 more acres of territory than the Vatican. More than enough space for a new nation. Our population is currently 12, not counting pets & livestock. I'll let you know what the immigration policies are when I get them worked out.

    I don't think we are doing the tired, hungry and huddled mass's. I am leaning towards, your doctors, engineers and attractive women.

    Okay. So that would make my question to you: Were you saying this in response to people making similar claims about Trump, or was Trump, at the time, much more of a serious threat that you let it slide? Or maybe there is the possibility that you changed as a person since then?

    I know it is important to you, but to me, the issue has nothing to do with being trans. People call each other crazy just because they disagree on issues. Sometimes people genuinely think people are crazy, or mentally disabled, and are shocked that it isn't being treated as a genuine concern. Our culture seems to have reached this point where the difference is indistinguishable, and I blame the cavalier of character assassination in order to discredit material being presented.

    Do you remember when I said,"There is a possibility for Trump to still turn things around, so I think it is premature to declare Biden as the conclusive winner of the presidential race", and that was a completely ridiculous thing to say? I do.

    I think the fact that this thread is even still alive is because that point hasn't been put to rest yet. We are all still watching, seeing what will happen next.

    It's only a mental issue if it inhibits your everyday life. If you work just fine then it's all good. No mental health issue. People always misinterpret DSM and how psychologist handle the book. Going strictly by the book is not good. There's a lot that's not in the book that only a psychologist with training will know how to handle.

    Exactly and that is why we go through years of evaluation before we can get GRS so as people are Not transitioning because of mental health issues.


    I genuinely haven't seen posts on the temp claiming Trump has dementia had I seen them then yes I would have pulled the poster up for doing so.

    Must've been a reddit thing then. TBH the worst I heard here was "he is stupid", or attempts to personally insult him.

    Apologies for assuming gbatemp is as bad as reddit. Hope I didn't offend anyone.

    Every day folk can link as many articles as the want but unless you go through schooling then you wouldn't know how to interpret the book.

    A psychology book isn't black and white you fit all these bullet points so there for you have this mental illness. If that's the case then everybody will be diagnosed with a psychological illness, because everybody fits the description of some mental illness. The main ingredient is if it causes extreme distress and/or inhibits your life in some way. This is something that people miss when they play psychologist trying to diagnose a random person online who they know nothing of their history.

    In an unsurprising turn of events, twitter is censoring people as usual.

    Oh and Twitter has banned the Pennsylvania Senator who organized the election integrity hearing.

    I don't use Twitter. But that just looks like a warning that the link may be unsafe? Doesn't look like they're blocking anything. (Not saying that you are saying that they are blocking, but in the post you pasted it says users are blocked.)

    CNN reports that Sydney Powell's website is potentially harming users by a method of "scraping anonymous user data" by the use of something called "cookies". Fact checkers can verify that this is a invasion of privacy potentially endangering visitors from being tallied in a form of statistics that would be considered sensitive by users wishing not to be included. This is the first time that we decided to make such a situation a big deal, but hey, maybe we are willing to give up cookies now.

    Can I get a list of medical conditions I am not allowed to joke about, use in turns of phrase, reference in a story or similar?

    Cripple is a long standing one it seems.

    Trichotillomania (pulling hair out) is about 10 years since it crossed my radar
    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/ar...-hair-complaints-sufferers-rare-disorder.html

    Cancer is one according to some.

    Suicide is apparently another.

    Have seen heart attacks, once even pertaining to the phrase "serious as a"

    Apparently dementia (not sure what flavours or as a general concept) gets added to the list. People also seem touchy when various flavours of autism and depression get mentioned.

    With the last four then we are are most of the top causes of death
    https://www.who.int/news-room/fact-sheets/detail/the-top-10-causes-of-death
    https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/deaths.htm
    https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/healthandsocialcare/causesofdeath#datasets

    Wind in the "health at every size" set and that probably also knocks out diabetes and stroke.

    Fast6191 it all depends on the context you are using the jokes for. If you are using something like dementia to constantly attack someone who may or may not have it then that is just a cheap and somewhat scummy thing to do.

    If you are simply pointing out someone is not fit for the job they have because they have dementia then that's fine but here in this very thread we have had several posts that go way beyond that and that is not right. As you know Fast my mum has Primary progressive aphasia dementia some of the comments I have seen have personally hurt me because I have seen the sheer destruction dementia does to someone and its not nice and should not be used against someone to make fun of them.

    I can't see under any circumstance where jokes about suicide can be seen as acceptable but that's just me I guess.

    I would not pin your hopes it going anywhere considering the amount of mistakes in it. Looking over it quickly she misspells her key expert's name twice — his name is William Briggs, she calls him "Williams Briggs" and "William Higgs and thats just in the first few sentences
