THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT – Quote: “The European Parliament is pushing for the World Health Organization to stop classifying trans people as mentally ill.”
Although the WHO has this status under review and a change may occur in 2015, this is rather surprising news to me that it hasn’t been done already. The United States removed that status in 1990.
If Europeans still consider this an illness, imagine how third world countries view transgender people.
Emine Bozkurt, a Dutch member of the EP and Spanish MEP Raul Romeva I Rueda are behind this push to change the status.
