At this point I'm calling it a disorder because you told me it was a disorder, I assumed you had a reason for that. If you just made something up, called it a disorder and are asking me to justify it, I'm afraid I can't do that.
I don't recall stating it a disorder, but if I did, I misspoke. I didn't make anything up. In my experiences, women in general tend to view themselves larger than what they are. Do all of those women have disorders? Does every man who claims to play as good as Michael Jordan have a disorder, i.e. Kobe Bryant, LeBron James? What about the people who believe that they are good singers, i.e. American Idol?
What are the benchmarks being used to determine if someone who views themselves differently than how society views them has a disorder?
If you were an established M.D. who actively researched GID, I'd say you have a very valid point. At this point, because I'm guessing you have basically no medical training, I'm going to just assume any contradiction is more likely to be due to your lack of knowledge about the subject rather than any shortcomings in the field. I may very well be wrong about this, but there seems to be a body of literature out there that suggests this is a thing, that they've researched it a lot, and these are the best treatments they have for it at the moment. If you'd like to point to some peer reviewed stuff that backs up the assertion that this is all hogwash I'd be more than happy to educate myself. I'd be perfectly willing to change my opinion in light of new facts.
1. I have neural science training, but not nearly enough to consider myself much more educated on the subject than the average educated person. Also, more on the computational side and not the psychological side.
2. I never argued that what was mentioned was hogwash, but the labeling of one cross dresser as a disorder and not the other. There was no scientific mentioning of homosexuality being or not being a disorder. When I asked Rachel to differentiate his meanings between decide and choose, he conveniently disregarded.
3. You don't have to be expert to see contradiction. Scientists say that global warming is a big deal. Scientists say that global warming is not a big deal. I don't have to study global warming to see that is a contradiction. This applies to almost any scientific study. That is why ethics is very important.
