Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins University and former psychiatrist–in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital has just dropped a bomb on Obama, liberals and transgenders.
Dr. McHugh, who has studied transgendered people for 40 years, said it is a scientific factthat “transgendered men do not become women, nor do transgendered women become men.”
All such people, Dr. McHugh explained in an article for The Witherspoon Institute, “become feminized men or masculinized women, counterfeits or impersonators of the sex with which they ‘identify.’”
Dr. McHugh, who was psychiatrist-in-chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital for 26 years, the medical institute that had initially pioneered sex-change surgery – and later ceased the practice – stressed that the cultural meme, or idea that “one’s sex is fluid and a matter of choice” is extremely damaging, especially to young people.
The idea that one’s sexuality is a feeling and not a biological fact “is doing much damage to families, adolescents, and children and should be confronted as an opinion without biological foundation wherever it emerges,” said Dr. McHugh in his article.
“Both the state and federal governments are actively seeking to block any treatments that can be construed as challenging the assumptions and choices of transgendered youngsters.”
He points out what senior adviser to President Obama, Valerie Jarrett said- “As part of our dedication to protecting America’s youth, this administration supports efforts to ban the use of conversion therapy for minors.”
Think about that for a second. Obama doesn’t want these kids to get the help they need and wants the government to control what happens. It’s insane.
Dr. McHugh says those who want to change their gender suffer from a psychological condition rather than a biological matter.
“In fact, gender dysphoria—the official psychiatric term for feeling oneself to be of the opposite sex—belongs in the family of similarly disordered assumptions about the body, such as anorexia nervosa and body dysmorphic disorder,” said McHugh.
“Its treatment should not be directed at the body as with surgery and hormones any more than one treats obesity-fearing anorexic patients with liposuction,” he said.
Perhaps the most tragic part of this new trend is the consequence. After the immense pain and hardship of transitioning, a high percentage of transgendered individuals eventually take their own lives.
When “the tumult and shouting dies,” McHugh continued, “it proves not easy nor wise to live in a counterfeit sexual garb. The most thorough follow-up of sex-reassigned people—extending over 30 years and conducted in Sweden, where the culture is strongly supportive of the transgendered—documents their lifelong mental unrest.”
“Ten to 15 years after surgical reassignment, the suicide rate of those who had undergone sex-reassignment surgery rose to 20 times that of comparable peers,” said McHugh.
I will probably get hammered by our liberal readers for apparently “trivializing” this issue, but here I go anyway…
When I was growing up in the ‘70’s there was a TV commercial for Chiffon margarine, which apparently tasted just like butter…but it’s not. The very last (and very famous) line from the commercial was “It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature.”
Apparently that is still the case.
Folks, Obama has done so much damage to our nation that it’s going to take one hell of a strong president to get our country back on track.
The only person that can pull us out of this is Donald Trump.
Listen to Gorka BRILLIANTLY Support Trump’s Transgender Military Ban
Dr. Sebastian Gorka is fast-becoming one of Trump’s strongest media defenders.
Gorka’s bold, and fact-based style leaves the fake news stuttering and stammering.
That’s precisely what happened when he spoke to BBC radio in defense of Trump’s transgender military ban.
Gorka reminded everyone why we have a military.
It’s to “blow stuff up,” not be “socially engineered.”
Well said, Mr. Gorka!
