A psychiatrist from Johns Hopkins University has slammed the medical and psychiatric industries for what he says is reckless and irresponsible treatment of patients who claim to be transgender.
Paul McHugh, a renowned psychiatrist from Johns Hopkins University, told The College Fix he believes transgender people are being experimented on because the doctors treating transgender patients with hormones “don’t have evidence that (the treatment) will be the right one.” He also criticized the manner of treatment given to many children who claim to be transgender.
“Many people are doing what amounts to an experiment on these young people without telling them it’s an experiment,” he told The Fix via phone.
“You need evidence for that and this is a very serious treatment. It is comparable to doing frontal lobotomies.”
Vast majority of gender minorities report mental health issues
A recent study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine found that 80 percent of gender minority students report having mental health problems, nearly double the rate of “cisgender” students. McHugh believes that in many cases the patient’s gender dysphoria is precipitated by mental illness.
“I think their mental problems, often depression, discouragement are the things that need treatment,” not gender dysphoria, he argued.
“I’m not positive about this. It’s a hypothesis, but it is a very plausible hypothesis, and it would explain why many of the people who go on to have treatment of their body discover they are just as depressed, discouraged and live just as problematic lives as they did before because they did not address the primary problem,” he added.
Possible ‘contagion effect’
“I believe that these gender confusions are mostly being driven by psychological and psychosocial problems these people have. That explains the rapid onset gender dysphoria Lisa Littman has spelled out,” McHugh said.
The Lisa Littman to whom the professor referred is a researcher at Brown University, who last year published a bombshell report suggesting that some transgender-identified children might suffer from “rapid onset gender dysphoria,” a phenomenon in which “one, multiple, or even all of the friends [in a group] have become gender dysphoric and transgender-identified during the same timeframe.”
Surgeons are recklessly amputating erogenous nerves while imposing fake genitals on children in this new medical industry, which may well be linked to medicine’s maxvax epidemic. They have a remarkable capacity to create problems for which they market themselves as the solution.
Of course amputating erogenous nerves is par for the course in american medicine. http://members.tranquility.net/~rwinkel/MGM/primer.html If OB’s expected the shrink establishment to sound the alarm about any resultant loss of ecstasy and love and quality of life, such hopes should have died a long time ago. http://members.tranquility.net/~rwinkel/MGM/insane.html After all, “depression” is psychiatry’s stock in trade. https://web.archive.org/web/20170219054702/http://www.stopshrinks.org/winkel/2nader080100.htm http://thoughtcrimeradio.net/2017/03/obstetrical-abuse-circumcision-and-psychiatry-a-profitable-collaboration/ http://thoughtcrimeradio.net/2017/09/wholesale-drugging-of-us-kids-suffering-from-obstetrical-ptsd/
