Peru Classifies Transgender People as ‘Mentally Ill’
Tierin-Rose Mandelburg

May 15th, 2024 3:15 PM

America should take notes…

On Tuesday, the Peruvian government officially categorized both transgender and intersex people as “mentally ill.”

The decree, signed by President Dina Boluarte, notes that “transsexualism, dual-role transvestism, gender identity disorder in childhood, other gender identity disorders and fetishistic transvestism” are now all recorded as mental illnesses in Peru, as Daily Mail reported.

The Peruvian government insisted that this will help make “psychological treatment” more freely available to those struggling with these identity and ideology disorders. Now in Peru, people who experience confusion when it comes to their body and identity can receive free health services for said confusion. The shift “categorically reaffirms respect for the dignity of the person and their free actions within the framework of human rights, providing health services for their benefit.”

The move, as Daily Mail indicated, came out just days before the 34th anniversary of when the World Health Organization (WHO) removed “homosexuality” from the list of International Classification of Diseases (ICD). Additionally, the word “transexuality” was removed from the list in 2019.

But to Peru, those identity terms are now considered mental health illnesses.

A report from Yahoo News included a quote from Percy Mayta-Tristán, a medical researcher at Lima’s Scientific University of the South.

“You can’t ignore the context that this is happening in a super-conservative society, where the LGBT community has no rights and where labeling them as mentally ill opens the door to conversion therapy,” he said.

Critics noted that this new policy would open the door to conversion therapy. But that begs the question, if you’re converting from a delusion, isn’t that good?

In response to the news, users on X seemed to be supportive of the move.

“I never thought I would see the day Peru was more advanced then the US,” a user wrote on X, while another wrote, “truth hurts.”

A different user noted that Peru is “making public what most people are thinking” and said “Good for Peru” Similarly, others said things like “they’re right” and “well done Peru.”

I wonder when, if ever, the United States will do the same.

And the critics don't apply that standard equally.

They are 10,000% for conversion therapy. When it's drag queen story hour or "comprehensive sexual education" for elementary school children or completely normalizing the sexual anarchy culture in every single school they can get their claws into.

Hypocrisy, a lot of it.

Coddling and legalizing self / familial / sociatally destructive delusions is not good for anyone, ever.  They need help, not someone smashing the gas pedal on their problems.

They used to be classified as mentally ill... they still might be. It's just not allowed to say it in public.

It appears that over the past decade or so the bananas have been transferred to a new republic.
I'm sure we will invade or fuck with their elections to "fix" this.

Isn’t it still listed as a disorder in the US?

It’s not a physical ailment but it requires treatment by a doctor.

Gender dysphoria. As far as I know, the most recent DSM still has it listed as such.

“Gender dysmorphia” or dysphoria or whatever.  I see it as no different than the people who want to have their own healthy limbs amputated because they “don’t feel right” with two legs.  Any doctor who would cut off a healthy leg instead of sending them to a shrink needs his license pulled.

He did.  Maybe they will institutionalize him and get him the help he needs.

The US government used to as well. Up until about five years ago it was listed as a personality disorder. Of course that's been revised.

The CIA will probably stage a Color Revolution. Strange considering that the ruling party in Peru is leftist.
