Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins University and former psychiatrist–in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital, who has studied transgendered people for 40 years, said it is a scientific fact that “transgendered men do not become women, nor do transgendered women become men.”
All such people, he explained in an article for The Witherspoon Institute, “become feminized men or masculinized women, counterfeits or impersonators of the sex with which they ‘identify.’”
Johns Hopkins was one of the first hospitals to do gender re-assignment surgery. They no longer do so. Because as doctors, they looked at the results and found that the surgery did nothing to improve the lives of the people who went through it. Which means that the surgery wasn't correcting anything.
Well, if the surgery isn't correcting anything, then they've mis-diagnosed the problem, haven't they?
“In fact, gender dysphoria—the official psychiatric term for feeling oneself to be of the opposite sex—belongs in the family of similarly disordered assumptions about the body, such as anorexia nervosa and body dysmorphic disorder,” said McHugh.
“Its treatment should not be directed at the body as with surgery and hormones any more than one treats obesity-fearing anorexic patients with liposuction,” he said.
In fact, at Johns Hopkins, where they pioneered sex-change-surgery, “we demonstrated that the practice brought no important benefits,” said Dr. McHugh. “As a result, we stopped offering that form of treatment in the 1970s.”
I would like to point out that there is nobody, and I mean nobody on the pro-tranny side of the debate that can come close to even matching the people at Johns Hopkins in terms of their knowledge, experience, and education.
Transgenderism is a mental disorder. That doesn't mean you throw rocks at them while chanting "Unclean! Unclean!" But it does mean that you do not go along with allow them to mutilate themselves or inject themselves with hormones in an attempt to be something they are not.
