Top Psychiatrist Paul McHugh Dares to Remind Us: Transgenderism Is a Mental Disorder, Sex Change Is Biologically Impossible

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.”

Being a doctor, McHugh can be forgiven for missing the point. Obama, Hollyweird, and the media are not in the business of helping the sick to become healthy. Their objective is to make the dysfunctional even more dysfunctional so as to make society dysfunctional.

This is why black “leaders” like Obama, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, et al. will never do anything to help blacks assimilate and lead more productive lives.

The idea is to find groups that can be set off against the mainstream culture, exacerbate their grievances, establish them as morally superior and beyond criticism by virtue of being “victims,” and exploit them to undermine the cohesiveness of our culture.

Eventually society will become so twisted against itself so as to collapse. Then a new one can be constructed on a coercive basis by liberal masterminds. The term for this strategy is cultural Marxism.

Dr. McHugh is at the end of his career. If he weren’t, he would either keep his mouth shut, or his career would never happen. Everything must be subordinated to The Agenda, which does not call for replacing disease with health — quite the reverse.

The Agenda.

On a tip from G. Fox.

    Mentally ill people demand that their perversion be normalized, accepted, taught in schools, promoted. Disagree? Think it’s not a good idea? You will be DESTROYED financially and socially by the progressives, with a hatred directed towards you like you’ve never seen.

    Anyone or any thing that disrupts the fragile lie that has become the national norm is fair game for the most vicious, unrelenting character assassination imaginable…and not just character. If you cross them, they will make sure you lose your job or business and are subject to threats against your person.

    Obama and the left have “transformed” America into a sewer where homosexuality is celebrated instead of shunned, where laws only apply to certain (mostly white) people, where national power and pride have been purposely eroded to ensure we’re never a world-leader again, where the ugliest, least skilled, most entitled, most tantrum-prone individuals set the bar for everyone else…and then smugly laugh at you while going golfing.

    This is not “live and let live”. Queers and transvestites and dykes MEAN US HARM. They want to be trend-setters, life-style role models AND THEY WANT TO ENSURE YOUR KIDS ARE INDOCTRINATED, and anyone who says that’s not true is a G-D LIAR.

    Transgender surgery was invented for treating HERMAPHRODITIC people; I have no problem with that and some (So I’ve heard) had adjusted themselves to their bi-gender and lived useful lives. But because of “progressives” and their lust for politicizing everything, these poor people now have something else to further screw up their lives.

    I would guess most of these types want to be accepted and loved, which is a natural human desire. But acceptance and love, as true adults realize, is not a human right. Acceptance is granted by others, who, in a free society, are able to grant or withold acceptance as they choose (as long as they do not do actually harm the person or property of a non-concenting other; sorry, hurt feelings don’t count).
    Unfortunately, many people never become true adults, and thus feel justified in using strong-arm tactics to force others to participate. Leftists enable these fully grown children for their own purposes. Always remember, the objective of the left is to destroy Western society. Western society is not threatened by a few drag queens, and certainly not threatened by the relatively few homosexuals. Regardless, the leftist elite don’t care about gay people, or transgendered people, or any other sub-group, one way or another. They are simply intent on crushing the freedom of association that is a vital aspect of a free society, and this is the real threat. Just like gun control, excessive environmental regulations, business and hiring regulations, and just about any other leftist cause you can name. It’s about control, period.

    With you on much of what you say, but, who really cares if someone wants to mutilate their body? It’s their body, and who am I to decide if their desire to mutilate it makes them mentally ill? As long as they don’t ask me to pay for it (which, of course, the leftists have and will continue to do), I personally don’t care. What is truly evil is when they try to force us to accept and venerate these choices of others, like they force christian business owners to participate in gay weddings against their will.
    And yes, it’s the duty of every parent to keep track of what their kids are being told and act accordingly to make sure the kids get exposed to more than one point of view. They might not agree with you all the time (it would be unhealthy if they did), but brainwashing is far more difficult without total control of information flow.

  11. Mr. Mentalo says:

    I agree, if someone wants to turn themselves into a freak, it’s fine with me.

    BUT

    The whole point is (as with homo “marriage”) to push this as acceptable and “just another lifestyle choice” and that we should teach our kids to embrace this. THAT IS THE WHOLE POINT.

    Everything the left does is with the ultimate goal of destroying our society and mocking God, the mocking being the most important part. The left, you see, is actually more religious and has more understanding of God than many Christians. It’s true. They KNOW that undermining Christianity will cause chaos to flourish unencumbered. They KNOW that faith in the Lord keeps his blessings flowing to us, and that turning away from Him will result in destruction. No one understands the scriptures better than Satan, and these imps are his disciples.

    I remember my daughter coming home from school after her and some other girls “accidentally” walked in on the boys using the toilet. Anyway she was jealous and wanted a penis, so she didn’t have to sit and pee.
    Then some time later Cher’s daughter was talking about its sex change and how kids should get the hormones to further their “change” before they hit puberty to maximize the sickness, i guess.

    Lots of people have delusions about their bodies – anorexics look in the mirror and see someone who is obese; we look at them and see a bag of bones about to die. But what doctors DO NOT do is give an anorexic liposuction!!! Similarly there are people who strongly feel that they should not have a body part (such as a leg), but again doctors don’t amputate a perfectly healthy leg so that the person feels his/her body is now right.
    Sex change operations is just pandering to people who want and need attention (every young children get this), and provide a lucrative income for some doctors (with little responsibility for any long-term outcomes. But if an adult wants to do this and can find a doctor who will indulge them – go ahead it is your life, but don’t expect others to agree with you have provide you with ‘special’ accommodations (like gender neutral bathrooms in workplaces), or more importantly to financially support your delusions

    Body Dysmorphic Syndrome covers a host of issues.. There are some that are fixated on specific body parts and can’t leave the plastic surgery alone. There are some that want to look like animals, demons or whatever half human hybreds. And then there are those that want to be the other gender. Only changed superficially through manipulation of flesh, and prostesis for appearance sake.

    What a slippery slope – could end up claiming homosexuality is a mental disorder and should not be encouraged with weddings and gay couples adopting children as accessories. I wonder how depression sets in after the gay honeymoon is over and they still don’t feel normal like they hoped.

    But then again, this is an election year, and Democrats are in trouble, so anything goes, doesn’t it?

    Would you like another serving of red herring? There’s plenty left.

    The Psychology Of Homosexuality

    Besides the preoccupation by homosexuals with sex, traditionalist psychiatrists have catalogued a higher incidence of personality characteristics suggesting psychological disturbance and an inability to interact successfully with others. Dr. Edmond Bergler1, who treated over a thousand homosexuals, concluded that gays tended to:

    provoke attacks against themselves and then count these “attacks” as injustices they had suffered,

    display defensive malice toward others,

    exhibit a flippant attitude in order to cover underlying depression and guilt,
    display extreme narcissism and superciliousness (ANY LIBERAL WITH A PULSE, ACTS THIS WAY>,

    refuse to acknowledge accepted standards in non-sexual matters, on the assumption that the right to cut moral corners is due homosexuals as compensation for their “suffering,” and be generally unreliable, also of a more or less psychopathic nature.
