Playing too many video games is a mental illness but believing you’re the opposite sex is not, the World Health Organization declared on Tuesday.

From NBC News, Video game addiction is a mental health disorder, World Health Organization says:

Top global gaming organizations are asking the World Health Organization to reverse its inclusion of “gaming disorder” as a disease, according to a press release sent by the Entertainment Software Association on Saturday.

The World Health Organization (WHO) officially recognized gaming disorder over the weekend as a part of its 11th edition of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11). This was a decision the industry was awaiting since the WHO detailed its intentions last summer.

From TIME Magazine, The World Health Organization Will Stop Classifying Transgender People as Having a ‘Mental Disorder’:

The World Health Organization (WHO) will no longer categorize being transgender as a “mental disorder”, after a major resolution to amend its health guidelines was approved May 25.

The United Nations’ health agency approved a resolution to remove “gender identity disorder” from its global manual of diagnoses, in a move that will have a “liberating effect on transgender people worldwide,” says Human Rights Watch. According to the newly-revised version of the International Classification of Diseases (known as ICD-11), published by the WHO, “gender identity disorders” have been reframed as “gender incongruence.” Gender nonconformity is now included in a chapter on sexual health, rather than being listed with “mental disorders” as was the case previously. Activists are now hoping that the ICD-11 will be implemented by the WHO’s 194 member states over the next three years.

Whoever made these guidelines is mentally ill.
