Gaming Disorder to be removed from WHO and others

Gaming Disorder is classified as ~ quoted from the WHO's website:

"What is gaming disorder?

Gaming disorder is defined in the draft 11th Revision of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11) as a pattern of gaming behavior (“digital-gaming” or “video-gaming”) characterized by impaired control over gaming, increasing priority given to gaming over other activities to the extent that gaming takes precedence over other interests and daily activities, and continuation or escalation of gaming despite the occurrence of negative consequences.

For gaming disorder to be diagnosed, the behaviour pattern must be of sufficient severity to result in significant impairment in personal, family, social, educational, occupational or other important areas of functioning and would normally have been evident for at least 12 months."

This makes millions of people worldwide seem like they have mental problems and addiction problems when all they have is misunderstanding parents who hate violent games. This must stop as it could cause depression, a "withdrawal symptom" from prolonged periods of non-gaming. Sign this petition to get justice for gamers!
