Dr. Paul R. McHugh says transgenderism is biologically impossible. Of course it is. Any first-year biology student knows that. In fact, you don’t need to take a biology class to know that chopping off private parts, taking hormones, and dressing like the opposite sex is not normal behavior.
Just because someone like Chastity Bono, the daughter of Sonny and Cher, sexually mutilated herself and become the fictional “Chaz,” does not make it anymore moral or rational.
Dave Blount reports on the story:
George Orwell could not have been more right than when he said,
We have now sunk to a depth at which restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men.
Except when he said . . .
In a time of universal deceit – telling the truth is a revolutionary act.
This is because a totalitarian ideology like liberalism insinuates itself into literally every subject, so that no one is allowed to say anything that isn’t a moronic lie if they don’t want to risk incurring the wrath of the establishment. Take psychiatry, for example:
“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.”
Like Orwell said about “restatement of the obvious.”
Only slightly less obvious is McHugh’s refutation of the liberal argument that we must pander to the delusions of the sexually perplexed to prevent them from committing suicide.
“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.’”
Although it has only been very recently that anyone would doubt the veracity of Dr. McHugh’s observations, he is swimming against a powerful current.
“While the Obama administration, Hollywood, and major media such as Time magazine promote transgenderism as normal, said Dr. McHugh, these ‘policy makers and the media are doing no favors either to the public or the transgendered by treating their confusions as a right in need of defending rather than as a mental disorder that deserves understanding, treatment and prevention.’”
