WHO Classifies "Gaming Disorder"

Following up on previous indications, the World Health Organization includes "gaming disorder" as a new mental health condition latest edition of its International Classification of Diseases, reports CNN. "I'm not creating a precedent," says Dr. Vladimir Poznyak of the precedent, saying the WHO has followed "the trends, the developments, which have taken place in populations and in the professional field." The article looks at both sides of this, also quoting researchers critical of the change. Meanwhile, some of the WHO's statements about why this is necessary seem to indicate not all the facts are in yet:
Ultimately, WHO hopes that inclusion of gaming disorder in the classification will stimulate debate as well as further research and international collaboration, Poznyak said.

Game over, so to speak, is to "significantly reduce the current gaps in knowledge that we have when it comes to the prevalence of these conditions and when it comes to their nature and management."

Maybe she's just not desirable. But we're not allowed to call people fat and ugly anymore...

Not desirable? Obviously, playing the game was more desirable than sex. But fat shaming without knowing what a person looked like? Aren't you just a winner.
