In their statement, the doctrine committee acknowledges that modern technology offers chemical, surgical, and genetic interventions for the functioning of the human body, as well as for modifying its appearance. While these developments have led to the cure of many maladies and promises for more, modern technology also produces interventions that are injurious to the true flourishing of the human person. As an example of immediate concern, the committee cites the interventions advocated by many in society as treatments for what is termed “gender dysphoria” or “gender incongruence.” These interventions involve the use of surgical or chemical techniques that aim to exchange the sex characteristics of a patient’s body for those of the opposite sex or for simulations thereof. As such interventions “do not respect the fundamental order of the human person as an intrinsic unity of body and soul, with a body that is sexually differentiated,” the committee states that Catholic health care services must not perform them.
So, the Catholic church has come out in favor of no gender-assignment surgery for intersex people? Good to know.
As tempting as it is to use the “There are dozens of us!” gif it would be exaggerating in this case.

She’s apparently quite capable of defecating from her mouth. Problem solved.
Here, or Just Plain Assholes? Sod it: both.
One Nation are described as Xenophobic Populists. They’re on the same level (and academically described in the same breath as) as Le Pen’s Front National or UKIP. Not quite openly fascist, but they sure are friendly with a lot of fascists.
Seem to advocate vigilante lynching to protect children from the scandal of “trans in public”.
