“They wouldn’t have a diagnostic code that conveyed eligibility.” Jack Drescher, a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst at New York Medical College, who serves on the WHO working group told the New York Times that inmates, like Chelsea Manning, are able to receive hormone treatments in part because transgender identity belongs to a medical category. Trans activist groups have been working toward this for years, said Mauro Cabral, one of the program directors of the Global Action for Trans. Equality. Jamison Green, the former president of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health, said the change would be a tremendous relief to any person who is gender variant or gender nonconforming. WPATH has been publishing Standards of Care since 1979, guidelines for health professionals to assist transgender, and gender nonconforming people. “If we could stop society from judging people’s gender expression as a kind of craziness if it doesn’t fit what someone else thinks their gender identity ought to be,” he said. “That’s going to be a long process, it’ll be more than just changing the diagnosis. But that would be a step in the right direction.” The study also reveals how much a toll societal stigma can have on a young person. my review hereA 2012 study showed that teens who grew up with unsupportive families had 57 percent percent suicide rate, compared to a 4 percent suicide rate of those who had supportive families.

Bach defends IOC handling of Russian doping scandal RIO DE JANEIRO IOC President Thomas Bach defended the decision not to ban Russias entire team from the Rio Games, declaring Sunday that the doping crisis wont damage the Olympic bodys credibility and taking a swipe at global anti-doping officials for failing to act sooner against state-sponsored cheating in Russia. Speaking at a news conference five days before the opening of the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Bach said a total ban on Russia for systematic doping would not be justifiable on either moral or legal grounds. Every human being is entitled to certain rights of natural justice, said Bach, who also denied suggestions he had bowed to pressure from the Russian government to reject calls by anti-doping authorities for a complete ban. Bach was peppered with questions about the International Olympic Committees handling of the Russian scandal, including the decision to give international sports federations the authority to decide which Russian athletes should be cleared to compete in Rio. Asked whether the ruling represented a failure by the IOC, Bach said: No. This is for very obvious reasons. Pope to young on Poland trip: Believe in a new humanity KRAKOW, Poland Pope Francis told young people who flocked by the hundreds of thousands to his words Sunday that they need to believe in a new humanity stronger than evil, and cautioned against concluding that one religion is more violent than others. Organizers of the Catholic jamboree known as World Youth Day estimated 1.5 million youths attended his Mass at a meadow near Krakow, many of them having camped out in sleeping bags from a vigil service of prayer, singing and dance performances the previous evening. The jamboree, meant to infuse young Catholics with fresh passion for their religion, was the main reason Francis came to Poland on a five-trip, which also took him to the former Nazi Auschwitz death camp, where he prayed in silence and reflected on what he called so much cruelty, and to a church in Krakow, where he prayed that God protect the world from the devastating wave of terrorism. Extremist violence was on his mind when he set out last week, the day after extremists rushed into a church in the French countryside and murdered the elderly priest there, slitting his throat, as he was celebrating Mass.
