Liberals are outraged today as the former psychiatrist-in-chief of world renowned John Hopkins Hospital and it’s current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry has said that transgender-ism is a “mental disorder.”
Dr. Paul R. McHugh stated that transgender-ism is a “mental disorder” that merits treatment, that sex surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder.
McHugh, who is 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.
He explained in the WSJ that transgender surgery is not the solution for people who suffer a “disorder of ‘assumption'” and that the notion that hteir maleness or femaleness is different that what nature assigned to them biologically.
McHugh also prepared a new study that shows the suicide rate among transgenered people who had reassignment surgery is 20 times higher than the suicide rate among non transgender people.
He then noted studies from Vanderbilt University and London’s Portman Clinic of children who expressed transgender feelings but for whom over time, 70-80% “spontaneously lost those feelings.”
