Just in Time for the “Equality Act” -Johns Hopkins Psychiatrist: Transgender is a Mental Disorder and Sex Change Biologically Impossible

In 2019 I wrote a piece on a former head of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins, Dr. Paul R. McHugh.

Dr. Paul R. McHugh – retired Psychiatrist-In -Chief from Hopkins had strong opinions on the physical and emotional trauma caused by Gender Dysphoria. As you will read in my former article, Dr. McHugh called transgenderism a “Mental Disorder.”

Once in a while a brave soul emerges in this crazy upside-down world, and tells the TRUTH, no matter what it will cost them. One such person is Dr.Paul R. McHugh – a former Psychiatrist-in-chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, MD.  Dr. McHugh wrote a paper in which he called transgenderism a mental disorder. The paper was well received and so compelling, that Johns Hopkins ceased performing any sex change surgeries.

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.

Dr. McHugh, 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, where he explained that transgender surgery is not the solution for people who suffer a “disorder of ‘assumption’” – the notion that their maleness or femaleness is different than what nature assigned to them biologically. 

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.”

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.”

These people are 20 times more likely to attempt suicide!  And 70 – 80% of children who expressed transgender feelings, “spontaneously lost those feelings.” For our government and the media to be pushing this “mental disorder” is wrong on so many levels!

“This intensely felt sense of being transgendered constitutes a mental disorder in two respects. The first is that the idea of sex misalignment is simply mistaken – it does not correspond with physical reality. The second is that it can lead to grim psychological outcomes.”The transgendered person’s disorder, said Dr. McHugh, is in the person’s “assumption” that they are different than the physical reality of their body, their maleness or femaleness, as assigned by nature. It is a disorder similar to a “dangerously thin” person suffering anorexia who looks in the mirror and thinks they are “overweight,” said McHugh.

The pro-transgender advocates do not want to know, said McHugh, that studies show between 70% and 80% of children who express transgender feelings “spontaneously lose those feelings” over time. Also, for those who had sexual reassignment surgery, most said they were “satisfied” with the operation “but their subsequent psycho-social adjustments were no better than those who didn’t have the surgery.”

“And so at Hopkins we stopped doing sex-reassignment surgery, since producing a ‘satisfied’ but still troubled patient seemed an inadequate reason for surgically amputating normal organs,” said Dr. McHugh.

The former Johns Hopkins chief of psychiatry also warned against enabling or encouraging certain subgroups of the transgendered, such as young people “susceptible to suggestion from ‘everything is normal’ sex education,” and the schools’ “diversity counselors” who, like “cult leaders,” may “encourage these young people to distance themselves from their families and offer advice on rebutting arguments against having transgender surgery.” 

Dr. McHugh also reported that there are “misguided doctors” who, working with very young children who seem to imitate the opposite sex, will administer “puberty-delaying hormones to render later sex-change surgeries less onerous – even though the drugs stunt the children’s growth and risk causing sterility.”

Such action comes “close to child abuse,” said Dr. McHugh, given that close to 80% of those kids will “abandon their confusion and grow naturally into adult life if untreated ….”

“’Sex change’ is biologically impossible,” said McHugh. “People who undergo sex-reassignment surgery do not change from men to women or vice versa. Rather, they become feminized men or masculinized women. Claiming that this is civil-rights matter and encouraging surgical intervention is in reality to collaborate with and promote a mental disorder.”  source

Unfortunately, since Dr. McHugh retired, many “politically correct” doctors have vehemently disagreed with McHugh, and for the last few years Hopkins has resumed their very lucrative sex change operations.

Now, a well known and highly respected pediatric doctor is sounding the alarm about sex change procedures for children. His name is Dr. Paul Hruz and he is a pediatric endocrinologist.

He was interviewed by Laura Ingraham on Fox News recently.

Pediatric specialist warns public that child transgender therapy is very ‘harmful,’ ‘poor science’

Children are being harmed by transgender treatments, a pediatric endocrinologist told Laura Ingraham on a recent broadcast of her Fox News Channel television program.

Treatments for transgender youth are drastic and experimental, Dr. Paul Hruz said.

The associate professor of Pediatrics, Endocrinology, Cell Biology and Physiology at St. Louis’ Washington University of Medicine appeared on “The Ingraham Angle” Friday to discuss fallout from the U.S. House of Representatives’ passage of the radical Equality Act.

The far-reaching pro-LGBT legislation among other things forces official recognition of claimed “gender identity,” along with transgender access to opposite-sex restrooms, locker rooms and dressing rooms.

Amid the implications of the radical law and continued push of so-called “gender” treatment for children suffering from gender dysphoria, Ingraham asked Hruz why the medical community is so afraid to consider the impact of hormonal treatment and surgeries for young people.

Hruz replied that the science behind gender treatment is very poor.

“It’s very important to recognize that what is being put forward with the goal of truly helping these individuals that are suffering is based on very, very poor science,” he said. “And any effort to draw attention to the poor science and the potential very negative and serious consequences of these hormonal interventions really has not been given the attention that it deserves.”

Hruz, who has repeatedly spoken out and written in recent years about the dangers of gender treatment, noted that this approach of relying on poor science for addressing gender confusion was unique as compared with other diseases.

Ingraham raised the issue of implications when chemically altering a child with gender therapy, whether or not the child had been through puberty.

Hruz explained that there’s a normal developmental process in children that has them trying to come to terms with the changes in their bodies while also struggling to identify themselves in relation to their peers, all of which is normal.

But when gender treatment enters in, the natural process is disrupted, causing serious lifelong damage, when most children experiencing gender confusion eventually work through it on their own.

“One of the concerns about this particular approach to treating these individuals that have a gender identity that is not in accord with their biology is that it will actually influence how they’re able to that normal integration,” Hruz said, “and really, subject them to that need of medical intervention that has potential (for) very serious harms to their bodies throughout the rest of their life, without even considering whether there are alternative options to help them, and even recognizing that a large number of children that question their gender identity are going to, if merely left alone, are going to realign their identity with their biological sex.”

Hruz said more than a dozen studies affirm that the vast majority of children experiencing gender dysphoria cease having the condition after puberty without intervention.

The exception, he said, was when gender treatment was employed.

“One of the most concerning observations was, however,” said Hruz, “if one tries to interfere with the normal pubertal development, to stop normally-timed puberty in children, that all of the children in the small study that was done looking at the effect of that, all went on to persist in that transgendered identity, really changing that statistic drastically from the normal trajectory that we normally see.”

Ingraham pointed out that there has been explosive growth in transgender treatment centers, accompanied by big money.

Hruz said there were now more than 50 of these centers in the United States.

“And really the amazing concern about the growth of this particular approach to dealing with children that have this transgendered identity,” he said, “is to adopt a single intervention that’s based on very, very poor quality science.”

Even those advocating for this intervention for children will acknowledge that the research really has not been done to establish what the long-term effects are, he added, and already the data coming forward raises serious concerns.

“Not only in how these children are going to normally move through these developmental stages and their identity,” Hruz said, “but the effects of the hormonal treatment on the body.”

He listed fertility issues and increased risk of cardiovascular disease as being among the dangers.

“The data really is not there,” said Hruz, pointing out that there is a clouding of the difference between gender identity and the biological reality of sex.

“We know that giving hormones to individuals that is not in align with their biological sex is not the same thing as giving it to (someone) in levels that are normally present in them,” he said.

Ingraham stressed that this issue is something that must be meticulously studied because children are involved.

“These children are very much being harmed,” Hruz said.  source

There are many parents who are pushing transgenderism on their children at very young ages. This is child abuse!

Since Dr. McHugh came out with his paper on what transgenderism truly is, and how it is harming children and people of all ages; younger doctors came to Johns Hopkins and brought their Leftist ideologies with them. Once again, Hopkins doctors were embracing dysphoria and were happily performing transgender surgeries again.

And now we find ourselves in danger of being labeled dangerous and even “Domestic terrorists” for adhering to our Biblical stance on these bizarre and extremely harmful surgeries and hormone treatments.

(Genesis 1:27-28) KJV

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

Satan is called the author of confusion and the father of lies.

And so he is.

It’s Official: We Are Now the United Soviet States of America (USSA)

Definition of soviet

 (Entry 1 of 2)1: an elected governmental council in a Communist country Source

But wait – I must add a correction to the definition for us: The part which says “Elected” is untrue. We the people of the United States did NOT elect this communist regime. They came in via voter fraud. They know it and they’re proud of it.

Even Time magazine boasted of the way the Dems stole the election:

The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election

But today a story broke which confirms that the American people are truly under Tyrannical Communist Rule.

BREAKING News From Dictator Biden- He Just Created A Task Force To Do THIS

With the Biden and Harris regime already on the march to shut down media that does not follow their agenda, using government and law enforcement agencies to go after citizens they deem as, “political extremists and white supremacy”, now they create a new department that focuses on “diversity”.

The dangerous precedence set by this, is that this can provide them with the means to target political figures as well as using the agencies to enforce their new policies.

Biden’s State Department announced Wednesday the creation of a new diversity officer position along with a council of deputy assistant secretaries from each of its bureaus devoted to the issue, Fox News reports.

“I am committed to bringing the diversity and inclusion work already underway at the State Department to the next level,” Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in a statement Wednesday. “To make that happen, I am pleased to announce the creation of a new Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer position at State.”

The new officer will “hold senior leadership accountable” for implementing new diversity and inclusion programs and report directly to Blinken, he said.

“Our diversity gives us a significant competitive advantage on the world stage,” he added. “This is something that the President, the Vice President, and I firmly believe.”

Fox News continued:

Each State Department bureau has been asked to designate one of its deputy assistant secretaries to oversee their respective diversity and inclusion efforts.

“Each one of us has the power and the opportunity to help create a stronger, fairer workplace, where everyone can contribute their talents and ideas and everyone is treated with dignity and respect,” Blinken said. “That’s what this work is all about, and why we’re making it an early priority.”

Of course some will cheer such a division while others, might see it is a new task force used to remove any opposition.

Nobody really knows the power and authority this new division will truly have and what they will actually be able to do and to whom.

Fox closed with, The State Department had reinstated diversity training in late January, after the Trump administration shut down “critical race theory” training in September 2020.

The former administration had criticized programs that suggested the U.S. is an “inherently racist or evil country” as “divisive, anti-American propaganda” and a waste of taxpayers’ money.

While diversity is always a good thing, forcing diversity is clearly not and is in itself, forced racism and discrimination.

A wolf in sheep’s clothing, is still a wolf and getting people to focus on the left hand as well as cheering for the scraps all the while nobody is seeing what the other hand is wielding and the dangers they actually face.

Racism is ridiculous, by the democrats force feeding racism down citizens throats it is enforcing and creating more division, not healing a nation.

The irony in all of this, is that the democrats created the KKK and have been at the heart of true racism.  By providing scraps and shiny lights, they have made themselves look like they are doing good for citizens. Source

The surrealistic feel of the Communist takeover of our once great country is slowly diminishing as reality sets in. I personally believe that this is Divine Judgment against us for turning our backs on the Lord i.e. allowing prayer to be removed from public schools – allowing the murder of over 60 million pre-born children and the changing of the Biblical definition of marriage by the Supreme Count.

Brethren, I hate to say this, but America is getting what she deserves.

Our job as Christians is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the lost. We may find ourselves sharing the Good News from prisons because the WRITING is on the WALL.

What is that writing? It is that Christianity will be outlawed and we will be forced to meet and worship Jesus in secret.
