Former Johns Hopkins chief of psychiatry. . . biologically impossible’



The former psychiatrist in chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital is pouring rain on the Bruce Jenner “Call Me Caitlyn” parade that’s sure to have the former Olympic athlete’s cheerleaders steaming.


Not only does Dr. Paul R. McHugh consider changing sexes “biologically impossible,” he thinks being what is popularly called “transgender” these days is actually a “mental disorder.”


McHugh, who has authored six books and at least 125 peer-reviewed medical journal articles, made the statements in a piece he penned for the Wall Street Journal that argued surgery is not the solution for patients who want to live life as the opposite sex.


Such people, he wrote, suffer from a “disorder of assumption” in believing they can choose their sex.

It's likely to be a brain wiring issue but I'm not sure if that makes it not real.

Oh FFS...

Right, it's not real, so people I know who are Trans are just faking it or are crazy. They're normal in every way, except knowing that their physical body doesn't match the mental.

The fact that trans people have existed for centuries doesn't matter of course, right? It's only a 'modern issue'?

The fact the link is to a conservative news site says it all.

Trying to continue the hate on trans people won't work to shove them back into the closets, but it WILL get people killed. Good job.

I usually hesitate on this subject because there are things I don't know or understand such as why there are hermaphrodites. I simply don't know other than those people were born with both female and male attributes. So anything I would think is nothing more than my opinion which means nothing. That being said, in the case of Bruce Jenner, I think he is foolish, repulsive and crazier than a shythouse rat.

I don't know how it affects the perceptions of kids. It's confusing to me. The subject of the thread is that it is a mental disorder. In the case of Jenner, I agree.

This is always so. Other people's sexuality is none of my business.

Less so than being born hermaphrodite. Trans is almost there....

Not asking you to prove a negative. Prove that Transgendered persons are not real.


I don't expect you to, you don't have enough brains in that tiny little head of yours to be able to do much more than single, simple sentences and click on the thumbs down. It is what we all have come to expect from our resident mental midget. Not enough brains to make a decent argument, but he can click on a thumbs down REAL well. Good boy Walter, way to go.

Can't say too much about the trans issue since I've never met anyone identifying as such. I'll speculate it's deeper than just being gay and attracted to the opposite sex.......


Ummmmmm.....


Anti-Trans Bathroom ‘Child Protector’ Caught With 13 Year Old Chained In Basement

Bigotry and hypocrisy seem to go hand-in-hand. Just consider all the stories of anti-LGBT lawmakers caught with male prostitutes or outted after sending naked pictures to men. However, all of that pales in comparison to this recent story. Esten Ciboro was recently in the news for protesting Target’s new policy of allowing transgender people to use the restroom of their choice. Now it turns out that he has been arrested for keeping a 13-year-old girl chained inside his basement. The girl, who has not been identified, was forced to use the restroom in a bucket and was fed scraps of spoiled food.

According to the police, Ciboro and his father, Timothy, were trying to flee when law-enforcement officials arrived on the scene. It’s unclear how long the girl was kept in captivity, though court documents report that it could have been as long as a year. Both the girl and two other children were placed in state custody and sent to a foster home. Timothy Ciboro made the following statement concerning the children:

Ciboro and his father were both arrested and are facing charges of kidnapping and child endangerment. Both are currently being held in jail awaiting bond and have sought a public defender, though no date has been set for the two,


This isn’t the first time Ciboro has made headlines in recent weeks. On May 4th, Ciboro posted the following on Facebook


For those unaware: Target will be allowing men in the girls’ restrooms of its stores and will also allow women in the boys’ restrooms of its stores — all to support queerism and confusion.’

Hell that whole Kardashian crowd is an aberration. I don't think Bruce wanting to be a queen is any weirder than Kim wanting a shytter the size of a fukking Buick.

Of course being transgender to the point you desire hormone treatments and surgery is a mental illness. A delusion.

Want to know your gender?

Look in your pants.

Unless you are an extremely tiny minority with a specific genetic flaw, the evidence therein should be clear.

Let it be your guide.

You don't get to choose.

The same thing has been said about homosexuality. I guess we can see where you draw the line, and those of us that have been here a while know why and the hypocrisy that it shows.

The delusion is that you think you know how it is for Trans people.

You don't.

Gender is not about what's in your pants. Why are you and others like you so obsessed with sex organs? FFS, you're creepy for that being your constant focus.

Gender is a mental issue, not physical one.

You are right, you DON'T get to choose your gender. Sadly, nature makes 'mistakes' all the time, things get screwed up and sometimes things happen that shouldn't, like people's bodies being one way and their gender being another.

True. I'm expecting a red any time now, cause asking Wally to think is just oh so horrible!

I know several people who are transgender.

If you asked me how I felt about the subject ( other than feeling badly for a group of people, who just want to live the way they were meant to be) to me sex refers to what is between your legs, gender refers to the way society looks at masculine and feminine activities or clothing etc.

When you get right down to it, what business is it of mine if my Dad (long dead) wore a dress. That would have been his choice for his life.

Patrick Swayze made a beautiful woman. Wesley Snipes, not so good.

Seems funny with conservatives saying transgender is a mental illness. I guess it takes one to know one.

I'm a conservative and I haven't said anything of the sort. That whole broad brush thingy applies to anarchists as well I see.

Most sh*t in every day life doesn't fall along political party lines, Cliffy. I think the figments of your imagination are working overtime.

For the sake of argument, what is the 'cure'? Is it worse than just letting them live their lives as the opposite sex?

I think everything that is not 'normal' can be in some way classified as a mental disorder. I think 'curing' it is almost crossing into the areas of thought police type correction.
