A prominent psychiatrist, at Johns Hopkins Hospital, Dr. Paul R McHugh, claims that transgender individuals suffer from a form of mental illness and that Gender Reassignment is ‘biologically impossible’.
On the heels of the American College of Pediatrics Reaching the Decision that Transgenderism of Children is Child Abuse (click and read!), snowflakes are melting everywhere!
Dr, McHugh also states that people who endorse gender reassignment are in fact supporting a mental disorder.
According to CNS News:
Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry, said that transgenderism is a “mental disorder” that merits treatment, that sex change is “biologically impossible,” and that people who promote sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder.
Dr. McHugh, the author of six books and at least 125 peer-reviewed medical articles, made his remarks in a recent commentary in the Wall Street Journal, where he explained that transgender surgery is not the solution for people who suffer a “disorder of ‘assumption’” – the notion that their maleness or femaleness is different than what nature assigned to them biologically.
He also reported on a new study showing that the suicide rate among transgendered people who had reassignment surgery is 20 times higher than the suicide rate among non-transgender people. Dr. McHugh further noted studies from Vanderbilt University and London’s Portman Clinic of children who had expressed transgender feelings but for whom, over time, 70%-80% “spontaneously lost those feelings.”
Dr. McHugh concludes his piece claiming that those who support gender reassignment support a mental disorder:
At the heart of the problem is confusion over the nature of the transgendered. “Sex change” is
biologically impossible. People who undergo sex-reassignment surgery do not change from men to
women or vice versa. Rather, they become feminized men or masculinized women. Claiming that this is
civil-rights matter and encouraging surgical intervention is in reality to collaborate with and promote a
Sure to infuriate liberals even more, he believes that if you enter prison as a male, you should have to wait until out to have gender reassignment!
There are subgroups of the transgendered, and for none does “reassignment” seem apt. One group
includes male prisoners like Pvt. Bradley Manning http://topics.wsj.com/person/M/Bradley-Manning/
6200, the convicted national-security leaker who now wishes to be called Chelsea. Facing long
sentences and the rigors of a men’s prison, they have an obvious motive for wanting to change their
sex and hence their prison. Given that they committed their crimes as males, they should be punished
as such; after serving their time, they will be free to reconsider their gender.
The left, as one might expect, reacted swiftly with claws fully extended.
Think Progress described the American College of Pediatricians as a “hate group masquerading as pediatricians.”
The Huffington Post said,
“Once again, Paul McHugh has used the ever more tarnished name of Johns Hopkins to distort science and spread transphobic misinformation.”
The American College of Pediatricians issued a statement last week condemning gender reclassification in children by stating that transgenderism in children amounts to child abuse.
The stories have been rampant of parents treating their little boys as girls because they “thought they identified” that way.
Between you, me, and the fence-post. When I was in the second grade, I wanted to be Cindy from the Brady Bunch. Why? I have no clue! I do know that never in my teen or adult life have I identified as, or wanted to be a woman. My parents never knew. But if they had, and fostered that silly imaginary play, they could have well guided me into something worse. It is important to note that over half of the transgender population considers suicide!
I am sure that this is probably a very common occurrence for young children!
Liberals are creepy!
Watch: 8 Yr-Old Football Players Kneel During National Anthem
Every player on the Cahokia Quarterback Club football team (8 and under) took a knee during the National Anthem before their game on Sunday. Shame on these coaches. I’d have my child out of there so damned fast, their heads would twist off. This happened in Belleville, Illinois. Gee, I’m so shocked… not. “One of the kids asked me, did I see them protesting and rioting in St. Louis,” Orlando Gooden, coach of the Cahokia Quarterback Club, told the media. “I said, ‘Yes … do you know why they are doing it?’” A player answered, “Because black people are getting killed, and nobody’s going to jail,” Gooden related to the media.
They are indoctrinating these little kids into militant racism and cop hatred. It’s reprehensible. Gooden is a former University of Missouri football player. He taught these little kids about a white former St. Louis police officer who was acquitted of murder Friday in a 2011 fatal shooting of a black man after a car chase. Cahokia is a just handful of minutes south of St. Louis and across the Mississippi River. “I felt like it was a good teaching moment for me to circle the team up and have a brief meeting,” Gooden said, adding that he explained why former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick began kneeling during “The Star-Spangled Banner” last season.
Where are the parents on this? Are they all cool with their boys becoming mini-Kaepernicks? “One of the kids asked, ‘Can we do that?’ Those were his words,” Gooden said. Like any of us believe these coaches didn’t manipulate these kids. “And I said, ‘As long as we know why we’re doing it, I don’t have a problem with kneeling.’” All 25 of the players took a knee during the National Anthem on Little Devil’s Field. This is totally improvised by these coaches who are Black Lives Matter militants.
They knelt with their freaking backs to the flag in a stance of disdain for their country. Gooden claimed that wasn’t on purpose. Right. I don’t believe him. He’s teaching these boys to hate America, police and the military. He has them embracing racism instead and he’s implanting hatred in their hearts and minds. “What I teach my kids is love, integrity, honesty, fairness, respect … boundaries,” he told KTVI. Bull crap. He’s doing just the opposite.
Here’s the kicker… all the parents of these children supported them taking a knee. ALL OF THEM. However, Gooden’s Facebook page got slammed just as it should be. He doesn’t care though. “As long as I have support of my parents and team, I’m perfectly fine,” the coach told KTVI, “and I’m covered under the First Amendment to peacefully protest and assemble.” I consider this outright child abuse. Gooden also told the station that he doesn’t see a need for his players to continue kneeling before games — that it was done once and a lesson resulted. Coward. He won’t even repeat his actions because he knows how evil they are. I’m disgusted by this. Little freaking kids for crap’s sake. SMH.
Sheriff Boldly Calls Out Media, Not Guns, for Spokane School Shooting
Last week, a disturbed student at Freeman High School in Spokane, Washington, opened fire and killed one student and injured three more. Every time this happens (which is way too often) there is a rush by the left to blame the guns. The problem, of course, is that guns don’t walk into schools and kill students.
Perhaps it is time we look more at why a student would even consider resorting to this kind of violence. What is it about our society today that makes this not only possible, but enabled?
Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich explains plainly, yet brilliantly, where the blame lies. In a press conference last week Sheriff Knezovich placed blame not on the guns, which he pointed out were very commonplace on school grounds 35 years ago, but on parents, media, video games and a society that “says it’s ok.”
The entire press conference can be seen here.
“Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich spoke out last week about the fatal shooting at Freeman High School in rural Washington state, saying that he believed the media and society in general were partially to blame for the attack rather than the guns used by the shooter.
“I carried a gun all my life,” Knezovich said at a Thursday press conference. “I hunted. I shot. My friends and I — it’s hunting season back home. When I was in high school, every one of those rigs in the high school parking lot had a gun in the gun rack. Why? We went hunting on the way home.”
“None of those guns ever walked into a school,” the sheriff continued. “None of those guns ever shot anybody. What’s the difference? Did the gun change? Or did you as a society change?
“Now, I’ll give you odds that it was you as a society, because you started glorifying cultures of violence. You’ve glorified the gang culture, you’ve glorified games that actually give you points for raping and killing people. Gun didn’t change. We changed.”
Knezovich didn’t stop there and said the media was also partially responsible for creating a culture that turns school shootings into big headlines, including the attack last week in which a 15-year-suspect suspect fatally shot one person and injured three others.
“This young gentleman got sucked into a counter-culture of violence, a culture that is enamored with school shooting,” he said. “And media, you are to blame for that, cause you keep giving these people headlines.”
“In using their names, you have made them heroes to some people. If I had my way, none of these peoples’ names would ever be remembered,” he added. “Until we start treating these people for what they are, killers, not heroes, they’re going to continue this violence.”
The sheriff also honored a teenage student, Sam Strahan, who died trying to stop the suspect during the attack, and spoke of the janitor who confronted the suspect and ultimately stopped him.
Knezovich added that he thought Congress and other elected officials should do more to help the mentally ill in the country by providing more funding to the mental health system.
The 15-year-old suspect has been charged with one count of first-degree murder and three counts of attempted murder and is currently being held without bond at the Spokane County Juvenile Detention Center, according to an SCSO statement.”
Sheriff Knezovich also told a story of an officer with 15 years of service who recently left the profession because he just couldn’t take it anymore. He then made an excellent point saying “when we start giving up, you’re in trouble.”
That is a very scary thought. At some point, will those who protect us give up and leave people to fend for themselves? I certainly couldn’t handle the job. I’m grateful there are still people willing to serve in an increasingly thankless and violent position, but I can see a time coming where people think it isn’t worth the risk. Where will we be then?
We need society to make a radical change. Taking away guns from law abiding people will never solve anything. Sheriff Knezovich believes we need to teach students some of that “old school stuff, love one another.” I couldn’t agree more, I just hope it’s not too late to turn this culture of violence around.
