Stop Trans Pathologization 2012

The Trans Depathologization Network is working for the removal of the Gender Identity Disorder category from the international diagnosis manuals (the DSM and the ICD).

The five demands of the STP-2012 campaign are as follows:

1. The retirement of GID from the international diagnosis manuals (their next versions DSM-V and ICD-11)
2. The retirement of sex mention in the official documents
3. The abolition of the binary normalization treatments to intersex people
4. Free access to hormonal treatments and surgery (without the psychiatric monitoring)
5. The fight against transphobia: working for education, social and labour insertion for trans people

Protests will take place all over the world the 17th of October 2009. If you want to support this campaign send an email to

I don't really support the fourth one, because there are a lot of people out there who might not be trans and just have simple fetishes.
