proof that doctor who is real


Asexuality is OFFICIALLY not a disorder, according to the APA.

The images above are from the DSM-5, which is the latest edition of the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.  The DSM-5 is a really important book.  It is used by doctors and mental health care providers around the world to diagnose mental disorders.

The DSM-5 explicitly and clearly recognizes asexuality, and says that if a person is asexual, that they should not be diagnosed with Female Sexual Interest/Arousal Disorder or Male Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder.

This book says that you are valid, your feelings are real, and that you do not have a disorder because you feel this way.

Anyone who claims otherwise is wrong.

They do not know what they are talking about.  You can point them at this book as proof that they are wrong.

Full Reference:

On page 434, in the section on Female Sexual Interest/Arousal Disorder (302.72), at the end of the “Diagnostic Features”, it reads:

If a lifelong lack of sexual desire is better explained by one’s self-identification as “asexual”, then a diagnosis of female sexual interest/arousal disorder would not be made.

On page 443, in the section on Male Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (302.71), at the end of the “Differential Diagnosis”, it reads:

If the man’s low desire is explained by self-identification as an asexual, then a diagnosis of male hypoactive sexual desire disorder is not made.

PLL predictions & Questions

(This post is basically for me to look back at - started 24/03/2017)

I know I don’t have one solid prediction but hey ho there’s too many to choose from

I also want to look back so I can see which questions got answered (I’m aware most won’t get covered so no need to tell me)

A.D predictions

Spencer’s twin
Aria or Aria twin
Bethany Young is a twin of either Melissa, Spencer or Aria

A team predictions-

Wren is related to either A.D, Bethany, Aria or Rollins & is helping them

PLL questions - This is in no specific order 

Why did Eddie recognise Aria? 

Why did Eddie choose to give Ezra the drawing out of everybody? 

 What did the Bethany drawings mean?  

Why was Wren drawing a lady in red? 

Why did Ali/Jason have photos of Aria What do the NAT videos mean?  

 Are there any significant ones we haven’t seen? Did Ian really kill himself?  

Is Maya really dead? 

Who is in the barrel?

 Is Eddie Lamb dead? 

 Is Wren a real doctor? 

Who did Wren call when he said he’s sorted his end?  

 Does Mona know more than she’s told?  

Who killed Marion? 

Was Charlotte’s story genuine? (serious plot holes) 

 Who was in the Dilaurentis house with a knife when Hanna and Spencer were looking for proof about Alison killing Bethany? 

 Who did Spencer text in season 7 episode 1 asking how they knew Hanna was alive?

Was Hanna hallucinating Spencer when she was captured? 

 Did Alison actually invite Bethany to labour day or was that Charlotte?  

How did Cece get messages to Alison in jail? 

Who are the voices on the satnav when Alison is directed to the dollhouse?

If we hear Bethany talk in future will they use the voice from the tapes in Radley?

Feel free to add more things you’d like answered- I’ll probably add some more before 7B starts

“Why is a transgender person not considered to have a mental illness?”

The website Reddit has a popular section called “Explain Like I’m Five,” or ELI5. The idea is that people ask questions about things they want to understand better, and experts or other people who do understand the topic offer answers—not literally aimed at five-year-olds, but in simple, easy-to-understand language to help anyone grasp the concept.

It’s a cool idea, don’t you think?

Last week, someone asked the following question:

“ELI5: Why is a transgender person not considered to have a mental illness?”

Here’s how they explained their question. (I haven’t corrected typos that were in the original post.)

A person who is transgender seems to have no biological proof that they are one sex trapped in another sexes body. It seems to be that a transgender person can simply say “This is how I feel, how I have always felt.” Yet there is scientific evidence that they are in fact their original gender…eg genitalia, sex hormones etc etc.

If someone suffers from hallucinations for example, doctors say that the hallucinations are not real. The person suffering hallucinations is considered to have a mental illness because they are experiencing something (hallucinations) despite evidence to the contrary (reality). Is a transgender person experiencing a condition where they perceive themselves as the opposite gender DESPITE all evidence to the contrary and no scientific evidence?

A lot of people might take offense at this question, but one transgender redditor’s thoughtful, heartfelt reply quickly became the top-voted answer. I thought many of you might like to see what she said, so I asked for her permission to share it with you. Here’s her answer in its entirety:

Transgender person here, and your question is a good one (or at least, a common one that really isn’t answered clearly very often)

The short answer is: yes, Trans people are considered to have a disorder. Gender Identity Disorder and Gender Dysphoria are disorders recognized in the DSM.

There have been a few studies establishing certain evidence to support the idea that this is inherent (a few having to do with brain mapping/MRIs pop up now and again) but the funding and interest for serious, driven research into the field just hasn’t been there until recently. A lot of existing studies are either too old to be taken seriously or flawed due to lack of funding or existing bias. The best guess right now is that the brain is just wired to expect a different set of physical characteristics than it has, and thus causes dysphoria as a way of expressing that it thinks there is something wrong with ones body.

Your question seems to be more “Why don’t we get these transgender people mental help instead of physical modifications to their body” and the answer is:

  1. Trans people already have to have years of therapy from multiple doctors and therapists to get the required letters of recommendation (verification that therapists and doctors have confidence that the person does experience Gender Dysphoria and that they believe that sexual transition would be beneficial to the patient’s mental health) needed to get hormones and SRS (sexual reassignment surgery) and no form of conversion therapy has worked anywhere near consistently.

  2. It is just easier (at this point in time, at least) to modify the body to reduce dysphoria than it is to modify the brain to stop dysphoria altogether.
As far as what I can describe to you from personal experience, I am not in denial about the fact that I have a penis and that I grow facial hair and that my body produces testosterone. I can tell you that the physical presence of these things causes constant distress, feelings of depression and self hate, the whole nine yards. When I wear female clothes, ask you to call me by a different name or use different pronouns, wear makeup, etc., it is more to fool my unconscious self and distract it from the fact that certain parts of my body just feel wrong.

Plenty of other similar conditions, like Body Dysmorphic Disorder, have long been recognized and accepted by the medical community. Sometimes the brain expects your body to be different than it is.

It’s like if you were to take the hard drive out of one computer and into a different computer. You’ll probably be able to boot and do most things, but you’ll occasionally get some errors because that hard drive and the Operating System inside has been set up to expect a certain hardware configuration in the computer, and has problems when what hardware it thinks you have differs from the hardware you actually hook up to it. We (the medical community) don’t know how to reprogram the computer yet, so switching out hardware is the next easiest thing.

Trust me, if there was a pill that got rid of my dysphoria so that I felt content with my male sex characteristics, I would imagine that would be far easier and pain free to take than years of hormone therapy and multiple, very expensive surgeries. Such a thing doesn’t exist yet, so I only have one other choice.

EDIT: I should mention that my experiences doesn’t cover every one you hear. There has been a push in certain groups to remove gender dysphoria from being the identifying factor of being transgender, and make it solely an “identity”. I personally take issue with this (as it removes all scientific aspects from the issue), but many trans people support the idea or just don’t care. It’s the internet, and Reddit is a great trolling ground when the Tumblr bloggers want to stir up trouble. You are likely to hear lots of different opinions.

I love when people have such a clear and simple way of helping me understand what the world looks like through their eyes. Don’t you?

Jim finds a secret study room on campus his freshman year. It’s tucked away in the corner so no one else knows about— or so he thought. Slowly he starts noticing things that tell him someone else knows about it. Anatomy lecture handouts left on the study table. Biology notes that can still be seen even though they were erased from the board. Red bull cans and granola bar wrappers in the trash can. One day he comes in to find writing left on the board “If the human heart is so tough and strong, why is it easily broken into pieces? Dammit all.” Jim in a fit of excitement at real, tangible proof of the unknown person he shares a study room with (who he is getting oddly invested in) decides to write back: “Like a glass mosaic, if you put the broken pieces of a heart back together it will be all the more beautiful and function just fine”. Thus begins the messaging back and forth between strangers. At first it’s mostly “who the fuck asked you anyway,” then after a few weeks it’s more like, “I’m studying to be a doctor dammit. I don’t know shit about astrophysics.” Until finally Jim walks in to study one day, and finds his well known stranger smiling at Jim’s last reply.

Just cuz the lady who made the flag says the white is for non bianarys doesn't make it a real thing. She's not doctor/ scientist for putting colors together

Exactly… Plus even if nonbinary would have more proof to it in the future (which I doubt but I mean I’m open to it), it’s still only dysphoric nonbinary people who aren’t cis. Truscum/transmeds only oppose non-dysphorics calling themselves trans/nonbinary, lmao






Donald Trump Is Going To Kill Me

I thought I was recovered from my drug-induced lupus erythematosus. I hadn’t had ANY symptoms (that couldn’t be easily attributed to my other illnesses) for like a month.

And then motherfucking Trump was elected and now I’ve got a rash on my face, swelling in my knees and ankles, a fever with flushing and hot flashes, and nothing else to pin any of it on. (For those who don’t know, that’s textbook Lupus symptoms.) Not to mention nearly all of my other symptoms of everything else I have are worse. I’m so stressed that my body started attacking itself. I can’t take this.

Meanwhile there are assholes who think I’m exaggerating and overreacting when I say I fear for my wellbeing and I’m desperate to get out of the country. He’s going to drop taxes so much that Social Security Disability Insurance is going to have to be cut from the federal budget along with the health insurance that comes with it. I’ll have no income and no health insurance to cover my 8 doctors and 16 medications that I need to live. And he won’t even try to fix it because he doesn’t give a fuck about disabled people. Need proof?

Donald Trump accused a reporter whom he had mocked of “using his disability to grandstand,” because he honestly thinks those who dare to be disabled in public must just want attention.
As a real estate developer, Trump’s properties have been sued several times for violating the ADA, when you can literally find out how to follow the ADA from Google in 30 minutes or less.
His website’s “issues” section does not provides any information on disability, special education, or relevant health care policy. “Our most vulnerable American citizens who can’t control the fact that they can’t work shouldn’t have to starve to death, die of exposure, or die of treatable diseases,” is not a controversial statement. All Republican presidents before him have supported that statement.
And when he does mention our issues, he writes shit like this in his books: “Then there’s the disability racket. Did you know that one out of every 20 people in America now claims disability? That adds up to $170 billion a year in disability checks. Between 2005 and 2009, it is estimated that $25 billion were eaten up in fraudulent Social Security Disability Insurance filings. On and on, scam after scam it goes; as always, taxpayers are the ones getting stiffed.”

Yeah, he literally thinks me having income and health insurance is a scam to taxpayers. And that’s literally all he has to say when it comes to disability policies. Still think I’m being melodramatic and overreacting? If the stress of this doesn’t literally kill me, Donald Trump will literally kill me.

If you voted for Donald Trump, you did this to me. You triggered a potentially life threatening illness that I was nearly completely recovered from. And now I’m going to take MONTHS trying to recover all over again. You are the reason I will barely be able to get out of bed, let alone leave my home, for this entire holiday season. And in the next 4-8 years, you might become responsible for my death. I hope you fucking know that.

John - voice(s) in Sherlock’s head

In TEH and in TAB we experience something new - we can hear John’s voice in Sherlock’s head. True, these four episodes are told from Sherlock’s POV but there is more to it. 

In TEH when examining the skeleton Sherlock keeps hearing John’s voice berating him in a way he have never seen in the show:

“Show off”, “You jealous?”, “Smart arse”, “You forgot to put your collar up”

That is, these are things John has said before but not in a hurtful or contemptuous way. It was friendly mockery or irony, meant to take his friend down a peg, but in Sherlock’s mind it has turned into something else. And he cannot switch it off. 

Interesting enough, there is only one other episode in which this happens: TAB. But this time it is more complicated because the whole episode is a creation of Sherlock’s mind and here - as I would like to argue - we get two Inner Johns, not just one. 

In the carriage scene MP Modern John briefly shining through MP Victorian John is saying what? 

“Sherlock, tell me where my bloody wife is, you pompous prick, or I’ll punch your lights out!”

And there is more:

  • “Spoken like an addict.”
  • “Unprincipled drug addict.”
  • “… which of us is a soldier and which of us a drug addict”

This is getting more and more intense and shows an interesting polarity in Sherlock’s perception of John: On the one hand he feels unworthy of him, seems to feel that these accusations would be justified and well-deserved. They are proof of Sherlock’s low self-esteem regarding everything except his intellect. And they mirror some of John’s reactions in series 3: the physical violence in TEH, his anger at Sherlock being high, his threats in the 221B scene after Leinster Gardens. The fact that Sherlock imagines John, a doctor, accusing him of being an addict three times in one episode is quite telling in itself. 

But there is another John as well (no matter if the modern scenes are real or not): caring, worried, helpful, loyal, kind, the one who after 130 years finally comes to save Sherlock Holmes at Reichenbach. 

For Sherlock there is not one Inner John but two and they seem to be at odds with each other. They reflect his own inner turmoil, the fight between self-loathing (represented by angry John) and (self-)love (Reichenbach/fireplace John). This is a dichotomy that may reach far beyond TAB and that has to be solved once and for all (preferably and probably by Johnlock becoming Canon).

Rose kissing Ten on 'The Stone Rose'.

“A single drop, a liquid emerald, splashed on to the stone cheek of
the Doctor.
And the cheek became flesh. Pale flesh, dark hair, intense brown
eyes. His tunic rippled back into cloth, ten toes wiggled within his
sandals. Arms flexed, and grabbed Rose into a hug. Soft lips pressed hers with a kiss of gratitude and joy and unspeakable pleasure at being alive.
‘Wotcha,’ Rose said, smiling through her tears.
‘Hello,’ he replied softly, his eyes shining.
‘I think you must be real,’ she said after a moment. ‘My imagination’s not that good.’ ”


So guys, that’s the proof! Everytime someone jokes about Rose never kissing the Doctor been just Rose and The Doctor I think “You guys never read the official books of the show?”

The Stone Rose by Jaqueline Rayner is an amazing book and yes, it’s part of the canon. So, go and read!!

Reasons to believe Delphine is alive

1. Evie Cho is a fucking liar and anyone from neolution can’t be trusted
2. Krystal “saw everything” but still uses the present tense to talk about the “French doctor who saved her”
3. No body. No proof.
4. Kendall Malone (and Beth and others before) had her real emotional scene before she died and Delphine did not.


Oh, Darling Julius, what an introduction!

I would really love to know if Department to Count the Moon was in the original script or if it was an improv because the laugh it gets seems unprompted and there’s not reaction shot from the audience that I would expect if it was really planned. 

Also, and admittedly this is pretty esoteric, as well as being proof that I let the strangest things bother me for the longest time, but I finally have an satisfying answer to how Nick Hanway can be seen here in 105/202 as a random civil servant bod at Malcolm’s 8:30 – a position that is supposed to be completely apolitical –  and then later be seen in the 100% political role of Tom’s Glenn in Spinners and Losers .

YO imagine Laura being all into conspiracy shit and ofc she's a The Doctor believer bc why not and she rambling about how he exists and the proofs and stuff and Carmilla just rolling her eyes and going with it bc it's laura

fun fact during one of their sleepovers laura talked to carmilla about doctor who until 3am…literally about her favourite episodes and her favourite ships and yes her possibly theories about how the doctor could be real and where she would go with him and “carm where would you go carm wake up this is important i dont care if you dont believe in time travel this is important if the doctor were to show up and you dont know where you want to go what if he just leaves…carm all of time and space you love the stars he could literally take you there!!!! carm please wake up”

Well, first of all, I want to apologize for my broken English because i’m not native speaker, so it maybe harder to understand but I’ll try my best. 

So, now and since this nasty news came out, Amber supporters always put their ‘victim-blaming’ card on the table. The Daily Beast also wrote an article about ‘victim-blaming’, and even her bff, iO Tillette Wright wrote on her article defending Amber that everyone who questions her accusation supports a victim-blaming culture in our society. But the thing is iO has never saw him abusing her. Not once. He claimed that he saw aftermaths and heard it on the phone, but he has never ever seen Johnny beating Amber.

And the most important thing is Johnny still doesn’t have his day in court. And there’s still no conviction that he’s an abuser. So for now, Amber is just an ALLEGED victim.

What’s the real meaning of ‘victim-blaming’ ?

Here :

“a devaluing act where the victim of a crime, an accident, or any type of abusive maltreatment is held as wholly or partially responsible for the wrongful conduct committed against them.”

So we can use the word victim-blaming when there was a conviction that he DID abuse her. And someone say ‘she’s so stupid for not leaving him’, That’s the REAL victim-blaming situation.

But what the majority of people are doing for now is QUESTIONING HER ACCUSITION which they have ALL THE RIGHTS to do it.

Amber’s supporters always said that their hero has proofs and witnesses and all. But what she really has are :

1. the pictures of the aftermaths : The pictures itself can’t prove anything. It needs a doctor to investigate it, and confirm that the bruise match the incident that she describes or not.

2. the text that she claimed it is a conversation between Stephen Deuters who is Johnny’s assistant and her. : Even though People Mag published an article that it was verified by the tech expert that it’s authentic, he still didn’t comfirm that it’s from Stephen. He didn’t even confirm that THE TEXT itself are authentic. He wrote that the PHOTOS and the BACK-UPS are authentic. If he’s so sure that the text is authentic, why didn’t he wrote that THE TEXT is authentic ? simple as that. Why did he need to avoid referring to the text ?

3. Witnesses : I don’t know how many people will be her witnesses in the court. But for now, I know that she has Raquel and iO as her witnesses. However, they are not the reliable witnesses. iO only heard it from the phone, and saw the aftermath of the incident in December, but no, he has never seen Johnny abusing Amber. For Raquel, if you read the court document, you will realize that some of her story didn’t even match with Amber. (She claimed that she saw Amber sat on the couch, hiding her face with her arms and Johnny was ONLY


at Amber. So she ran in between Johnny and Amber and tried to peotect her from him. However, Amber claimed that when Raquel arrived, she escaped Johnny to another side of the room, so Raquel came in between Johnny and her. Then, she ran back to sit at the couch again. Another question is if she really feared for her life, why didn’t she escape from the room ? Why did she run back to the couch ?)

The only UNBIASED party here is the LAPD officers who said that they saw NO EVIDENCES of her being abused. NO BRUISE. NO WOUNDS. NOTHING.

4. the so-called video : she said she has it, but

we haven’t seen it so far.

Some feminists said that women can’t lie when it comes to Domestic Violent issue. But what about Paul McCartney and Heather Mills case ? It turned out that she was lying. She also said that she has a voice record of him apologizing for abusing her. But no, she didn’t have it. Anotheer case is Ray Rice and his wife. She claimed that he abused her. She also showed the video which Rice pulled her, incapable of even standing, out of the elevator. However, the CCTV in the elevator recorded her hitting him several times until he lose control of himself and punch her just ONCE. But of course, men have stronger physical force than women. So when he hit her just once in order to defending himself, it caused more damage to her than she hit him several times.

And the BIG question is why didn’t she file the police report ? Some of her supporters said that it’s normal for DV victims that they didn’t file the police report because they want to protect the ones they love even though they were abused by them. Yes, it’s normal. But there are NONE of the DV victims who instead of filing the police report, leaked their aftermath photos and leaked other accusitions through the media.

And about the spousal support, yes, she changed her mind. She doesn’t ask for her spousal support in restraining order case anymore, but she still doesn’t refuse to ask for 3 of his condos, his range rover and attorney payment. She still asks for the spousal support in the divorce case.

Another intersting thing is that Amber supporters like to bring Johnny Depp history of violence up. Like when he trashed the hotel room. However, Kate Moss was with him at that very moment, but police found her UNINJURED.

So if Amber supporters like to bring Johnny’s part to discuss in this case. I’d like to bring Amber’s history of DV towards her ex in 2009. She was arrested. No matter what Tasya tried to protect her, there were several witnesses including the cop that the incident is violent enough for her to arrest Amber. 

Winona said in her interview that abusers have patterns of abuse. And for now, there’s none of his exes claim that he was abusive towards her at all. NO ONE. They even said the same thing that they can’t even imagine him being an abuser. 

Lastly, I still believe in INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY. I didn’t say that he can’t be abusive. Yes, everyone can be abusive. Everyone of us. But the only one who got arrest for DV here is Amber. And there’s still no hard proofs of him abusing her. So for now, everyone can question her accusitions or even questions his innocent, and no, it can’t be considered as ‘victim-blaming’ situation at all.

Edit to add that I will not respond to any arguments on this post because I already expressed everything I think and feel here. Read carefully before blaming me for supporting the alleged abuser. I’ve never said that she’s a gold digger or liar. Because part of me, somehow, believes that some of her claims are true. But I still believe that there’s something more to it. I still believe that it’s a toxic relationship and no one in this case is totally right or totally wrong.
