“Transgenders are Impersonators, Counterfeits” – Professor of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins University


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.’”

Dr. McHugh, who was psychiatrist-in-chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital for 26 years, the medical institute that had initially pioneered sex-change surgery – and later ceased the practice – stressed that the cultural meme, or idea that “one’s sex is fluid and a matter of choice” is extremely damaging, especially to young people.

“Caitlyn” Jenner.  

The idea that one’s sexuality is a feeling and not a biological fact “is doing much damage to families, adolescents, and children and should be confronted as an opinion without biological foundation wherever it emerges,” said Dr. McHugh in his article,Transgenderism: A Pathogenic Meme.

  1. It’s a scientific fact. It’s settled. End of discussion. Now instead of pandering to the trannies, we can openly suggest they seek mental help without being labeled hater or denier.

  2. @etp – Be careful. You may want to re-think using the “settled science” argument in favor of your own position.

    I’m not negative about that position, be assured. I’m firmly in the “transgenderism is a mental illness” camp.

  3. … as if it takes someone w/ a PhD to voice what the rest of us instinctively, already know…

    besides, the people that are trying to foist this on us are children. treat them as such. “Why can’t I?”, “Because I said so, that’s why.”…. “But, Whyyyyyyyyy?”, “When you grow up, you’ll understand.” … that includes you Mr. ‘Arrested Development’ Springsteen.

    we’re fighting the wrong battle anyway. this was never about ‘potty parity’; it’s about more government control to further the creation of their ‘Utopia’.

  4. For me, the meat (heh) of the matter is at the end of the article:

    “The larger issue is the meme itself. The idea that one’s sex is fluid and a matter open to choice runs unquestioned through our culture and is reflected everywhere in the media, the theater, the classroom, and in many medical clinics. It has taken on cult-like features: its own special lingo, internet chat rooms providing slick answers to new recruits, and clubs for easy access to dresses and styles supporting the sex change. It is doing much damage to families, adolescents, and children and should be confronted as an opinion without biological foundation wherever it emerges.

    But gird your loins if you would confront this matter. Hell hath no fury like a vested interest masquerading as a moral principle.”


    Gender Dysphoria = fucked up in the head AND crotch

  5. This transgenderized LGBT propaganda is nothing but a recruiting technique for the pleasuring of sick, twisted minds.

    Love of money is the cause of much evil and sexual perversion covers the rest of the bases.

  6. Moaan Lobe. Right on! I knew that years ago. We used to call them freaks I used to see them at Times Square, NYC. The tallest man in the world, the tiniest man in the world, the bearded woman, Siamese twins joined at the hip. Same thing—- freaks. I always felt they should be pitied rather than displayed. Caitiff Jenner is a freak today but treated as a celebrity. Sickening.

  7. They use surgery, dress, and makeup to hide who they are in order to fool someone from the same sex into a relationship. I think they should be considered predators.

  8. 1) I wonder how long it’s going to take the LBGT gestapo to pillory him?
    2) It could be a plot by the deviants on the left to get a whole generation confused and depressed. This has the double advantage of creating a political class with their own demands and tax payer funded programs, as well as filling the pockets of their cronies in big pharma. A double bonus! Who cares that they are way more likely to commit suicide!

  9. My wife is a psychiatrist and has the same point of view, but she is smart enough not to
    talk about it. The crazy left runs the country.

  10. It’s all about Distract, Divide and Destroy!
    DefecRats have no shame. They’re quite at home using these mentally ill creatures to advance their agenda of Weaken America any way possible!

  11. If a biological male has surgery for purposes of sexual reassignment, can they then can ‘check the box’ and legally declare themselves female? If that is the case, does obamacare pay for their future DRE’s (prostate exam)? That gland is very rarely removed during those surgeries. I can’t wait to see the public service announcements for transgenders to have that checked annually. Actually, now that I think about it, forget that. I’ll apply for a grant and do the first study of prostate cancer in ‘legal’ women, which is now a probability. My goodness, what a world we live in!

  12. Didja hear about the small radio who identified as a black woman? It was a transista.

  13. You can’t take the leap and hang on to the past, for the love of your gender change man, cut that penis off and free yourself from patriarchy.
    It’s possible to cure and shrink those testicles to make earrings, and that dingle will dangle just fine from a gold chain around your neck. And the foreskin(?), it makes a great base for beauty cream (just ask Planned Parenthood).
    LopItOff.com has a home kit, so you have no excuses, get it done already and stop disappointing the people who love you.
