Remember when psychiatrists dared tell the truth about trannies?

Caption: The LGBTQI lobby on the march against truth and biology.

Outraging the bully-dykes, crybaby-queers and unhinged ladyboys of the LGBTQWERTY lobby is like shooting rainbow fish in a barrel. These authoritarian offenderati live to be ‘outraged’, because fake indignation has been their heaviest weapon in the culture wars. By flouncing and throwing tanties, the ?Waffen SSM?, as Bill Leak called them, have effectively cry-bullied nearly everyone into submission.

Almost everyone. There were once a few hardy souls prepared to endure the inevitable onslaught of harassment, vitriol and attacks on person and career that inevitably ensue, should they be so crazy-brave as to actually, well, tell the truth. Quote:

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. End of quote.

McHugh published his review in 2015, so this is not exactly news. But it is illuminating that, even just a few years ago, the pansy brigade were unflinchingly prepared to gun down any dissenters. More to the point, scientific facts remain true, no matter how hard authoritarian ideologues try to argue that black is white. Quote:

Dr. McHugh, the author of six books and at least 125 peer-reviewed medical article?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.? 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.? End of quote.

Indulging trannies? delusions is no more ‘compassionate’ or helpful than reassuring an anorexic that they really are a fatty-boombah who needs to shed a few more pounds as soon as possible. Quote:

The pro-transgender advocates do not want to know, said McHugh, that studies show between 70% and 80% of children who express transgender feelings ?spontaneously lose those feelings? over time. Also, for those who had sexual reassignment surgery, most said they were ?satisfied? with the operation ?but their subsequent psycho-social adjustments were no better than those who didn?t have the surgery.? ?And so at Hopkins we stopped doing sex-reassignment surgery, since producing a ?satisfied? but still troubled patient seemed an inadequate reason for surgically amputating normal organs,? said Dr. McHugh. The former Johns Hopkins chief of psychiatry also warned against enabling or encouraging certain subgroups of the transgendered, such as young people ?susceptible to suggestion from ?everything is normal? sex education,? and the schools? ?diversity counselors? who, like ?cult leaders,? may ?encourage these young people to distance themselves from their families and offer advice on rebutting arguments against having transgender surgery.?

Dr. McHugh also reported that there are ?misguided doctors? who, working with very young children who seem to imitate the opposite sex, will administer ?puberty-delaying hormones to render later sex-change surgeries less onerous ? even though the drugs stunt the children?s growth and risk causing sterility.? Such action comes ?close to child abuse,? said Dr. McHugh, given that close to 80% of those kids will ?abandon their confusion and grow naturally into adult life if untreated ?.? End of quote.


After just three years of ferocious public re-education by the pervy-left, his words of warning already sound like a distant echo from a long-gone era of sanity.
