Paul McHugh, a professor at Johns Hopkins University, says that transgenderism is reckless and irresponsible. In an interview, McHugh stated that doctors are performing the procedure on children without evidence that the transition is in the best interest of the child. He likened the practice to performing full frontal lobotomy.
McHugh continued stating that he believed that in the future, we would come to regret performing the procedure once we realize how many people are injured. The left has been quick to call McHugh a right wing nut and that he practices junk science. Truthfully, McHugh isn’t the first medical professional to speak out against the practice. Additionally, other studies have come to the conclusion that many other conditions contribute to the situation.
Ryan Anderson also spoke out against the practice in early 2018. Anderson discussed that performing the transition treatments and surgeries for children did not prevent the mental effects that many psychologists were advocating for. In fact, the rates of suicide attempts remained the same. He also suggested that some of the desire to transition was most likely due to the fact that transition surgery is celebrated in our society.
Anderson also has some great points that he shared regarding the current state of healthcare. As he states, many view healthcare as a way to make patients happy, rather than truly treating the patients conditions. Anderson discusses how in many studies, some people are lost as part of the study leading to inappropriate results. The Obama administration also came to the conclusion that the surgeries were not beneficial for the patients, as cited by Anderson.
Studies have shown that the overwhelming majority of those patients diagnosed with gender dysphoria had a co-occurring mental illness. Another study shows a high prevalence of the same in transgender women. The LGBT crowd would like you to ignore those studies and instances.
So Democrats, who claim to be the party of science, will ignore much research and studies regarding transgenderism to pander to the minority. While I’m certainly not an expert, there are two genders and you are born as one or the other. I agree with the assessment of the American College of Pediatricians. You are either born XY or XX, male or female. There is no third gender, debunking the myth of a non-binary option.
The assessment from the American College of Pediatricians continues that believing you are something you are not is a sign of confused thinking. Treating children as if they are anything other than the biological sex in which they are born is damaging and harms them, not just for a short time but for their lifetime. Health and science support these facts, yet the left wishes to ignore them.
The transgender movement is nothing short of self destruction. Not only do we ignore the mental health of the individual, we are relegating them to a life of suffering and leading many to suicide. It’s time for the left to stop ignoring the facts and pushing their pandering narrative and start getting back to reality.
