Liberals Furious! Johns Hopkins Chief Psychiatrist: Transgender Is A ‘Mental Disorder’
By Terrence Donovan Last updated Jan 12, 2019

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!), people are melting down everywhere!

To be clear – people should be treated very seriously when attempting to rectify their feelings with surgery or dangerous hormone treatments because they do need help and fast. Can people reasonably disagree about a cure?
Can people also agree that children should not be making these choices?

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 mental disorder.​
Sure to infuriate identity politics-pushers 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, 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.​
Ass one might expect, some have 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 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.
Can anyone with a clear mind think this is good for a child?

There were other prominent doctors in the past who said the transgenders and gays have mental disorders, it does not however fit the liberal agenda who wants to tear down this country from within, they are doing an excellent job, Trump is the last chance to make things right but it looks like the deep state is too en grained in DC , he needs t call out the reserves or patriots and take over DC, Lock all all Obama, Bush and Clinton appointments and hold military trials asap, time is running short, its only a matter of time before the corrupt send the FBI to arrest Trump

It does seem the water gets deeper and then we go to higher ground, which feels good but only delays an inevitable drowning.

I am pretty sure in 20 years, maybe sooner, citizens will be jailed for things unthinkable a few years ago. Owning guns, speaking out against sodomy and phony gender nonsense etc. Websites like this won't exist.

Its just a matter of time. Here anyway. In other places its already started:

There is not "a wide range of genders."

There are 2 genders and a wide range of mental disorders.

Oh, that's the UK. When the commie globalist government pounced, the people in the UK knuckled under very quickly. Since they voted to hand over all their firearms to their government years before, they had long ago sealed their own fate. The American people still have a chance to avoid that!
