The impossibility of sex change

By Tom Quiner

John Hopkins Hospital is considered one of the great hospitals in the world.

U.S. News & World Report ranked it as the best U.S. hospital twenty-one years in a row.

Dr. Paul R. McHugh is University Distinguished Professor of Psychiatry there.

He is the author, co-author, or editor of seven books within his field.

He identifies himself as a Democrat, but nonetheless, had harsh words for those on the left pushing sex-reassignment surgery:

“’Sex change’ is biologically impossible. 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 a civil-rights matter and encouraging surgical intervention is in reality to collaborate with and promote a mental disorder.”

Offering these types of services, says Dr. McHugh, is the equivalent of collaborating with the patient’s delusion. He says it’s much the same as giving liposuction to an anorexic person.

Critical thinkers might want to pause and consider the doctor’s words.

Reactionaries on the left, I’m sure, will label him as just another transexual-hater and insist taxpayers pick up the tab.
