Great claims require great evidence. If we take brain surgery as an example, many prerequisites must be accomplished before a new operation can occur. First, research must determine that a specific abnormality or bodily disease can be helped by such an operation.

Secondly, the danger intrinsic to any surgery must be compared to the danger of living sans-surgery before ethically taking action.

As our medical field has advanced through the ages, we have developed many protocols that result in the removal of organs or organelles: an inflamed appendix; tonsils; even a failing kidney. However, with the Hippocratic Oath now trumped by a bizarre progressive agenda, we are seeing doctors perform the act of cleaving off or surgically bastardizing the healthy genitals of a patient claiming to be born into the wrong body.

If you believe such a surgery should have scientific research supporting its use, you’re about to be truly let down by the psychiatric field.

We need to begin by highlighting the true victims of this betrayal by the medical community: the small children now being diverted and coerced into hormone therapy, psychologically damaging therapy sessions, and even the removal or inversion of healthy organs.

A child pretending to be a monkey does not run the risk of his/her parents deciding to transition the tot into a zoo.

Unfortunately, the same logic does not apply to a child playing dress up as the opposite sex.

One would look at the current lack of conversation regarding the abundant use of hormone therapy and reassignment surgery and conclude the science is in on this topic. If someone were to suggest there is no such thing as being accidentally born with the wrong sexed brain, which is the claim of the LGBTQ… community, they are likely to receive a slew of insults and maybe even a – I use this term hesitantly – scholarly article.

You will undoubtedly receive one of only a handful of weak studies used to justify doctors performing tasks so utterly unnatural they would force a blush upon the cheek of Dr. Frankenstein.

In the interest of bringing attention to unethical ideologues aiming to shape science into their perverse image, Frank P. M. Kruijver and Jiang-Ning Zhou advanced the idea that a small cluster of cells in the hypothalamus is larger in males than in females. Six male to female subjects were found to have a brain structure more similar to females than to males. This study is the modern basis of all future studies on the topic of transgenders.

Why no scientist should look at this study and take it seriously:

1) A sample size of 6 transgenders is wholly unacceptable for a study used to justify sexual reassignment. Even if we were to ignore the possibility that the results of this study were merely a consequence of chance, replication of the experiment is necessary to generalize the data to the overall population. While many articles online claim this study has been successfully replicated, the replication was merely the unethical P.M. Kruiver using the same cadaver samples and coming to similar conclusions. Failure to reproduce the biological findings of the Zhou/ Kruiver work in the last decade should certainly put a final bullet in the scientific paper version of a walking corpse that somehow keeps moving without logical justification.

2 ) If small sample sizes and failure to replicate aren’t good enough reasons to consider Kruiver and Zhou enemies of science, the fact that each of the six transgender people used in the study had decades worth of hormone replacement therapy should cause an objective reader to scrunch at the brow. The difference in brain structure could have easily been influenced by the drug therapy, and any credible scientist would have removed these samples to eliminate the chance of a confounding variable, an unforeseen factor leading a researcher to falsely claim a type one or two error. To pile on, later studies have even shown the small part of the hypothalamus in question does not become sexually differentiated until adulthood. Since most transgender people report feelings of being in the wrong body before the age of ten, the very basis of the Zhou/ Kruiver study has been destroyed by actual science. Like a skilled mortician, the American left still pushes out this dead thing, this intellectually void caricature of science, as something deserving proper deference.

As strange as this sounds, men and women constantly enter cosmetic surgery offices requesting removal of healthy parts of their bodies. As the DSM ( the official book of diagnostic guidelines for the psychology and psychiatric fields) states, body integrity identity disorder (BIID, also referred to as amputee identity disorder) is a psychological disorder in which an otherwise healthy individual feels that they are meant to be disabled.

To further expound on this delusion, it is not uncommon for a schizophrenic to self-harm due to the false belief that someone or something is taking over his/her body. These people would be turned down by any doctor and possibly committed.

In contrast to these conditions, a person suffering from delusions can enter a doctor’s office and be put on course to fulfill their surgical fantasy – but only if that fantasy relates to the suffering person’s genitals.

To repeat my opening line, great claims require great evidence – and there is no more evidence that a schizophrenic truly has the devil in him than there is for the claim that men and women can be born with the wrong sexed brain. Would you not consider it irresponsible to operate on any person with absolutely zero scientific understanding of the condition that supposedly merits the operation?

Welcome to the 21st century, where belief in the scientific method can result in being labeled transphobic and fascist. I do, however, take exception with the term transphobic – since only the insane fear things that don’t exist.

    Psychiatrists do not do hormone therapy or brain surgery. The author also displays a kindergarten level understanding of the hurdles for a transgender person and medical providers to get to transgender surgery. We know a lot more about brain and gender orientation than the single study cited. We are a long way from complete understanding, as we are in most medical areas. We strive to avoid doing harm, and the best we can.
    Bear in mind that the translated quote about insanity from Nietzsche was in German in 1886. His context may have been different. It is from Chapter 4 of Beyond Good and Evil. (Jenseits von Gut und Böse)

    This article is the height of conservative “control” politics. The ironic thing is that when I saw it on my cell phone, and after reading about how brains cannot be manipulated and are either male of female and can’t be changed, we have a cartoon like Dr. Carson pushing his “New Formula” for changing brain structure.

    What a bunch of fascist BS all this is. What’s it going to be next, throwing Transgender people into concentration camps?

    Who is the real bunch of perverts here?

        LOL. Perhaps not. Real reading with understanding requires a commitment I find few conservatives willing to make prior to forming an opinion.

    I believe that everyone has the right to be happy, as long as they are not hurting other’s. I think that a true study for Transgender-ism would be to talk to those who are Transgender, before and after SRS. If your not Transgender, then there is absolutely no way to know what it’s like to be Transgender. I’d venture to guess that 90% of Trans people are truly Transgender. No one chooses to be Transgender or Gay, etc. Why would anyone put themselves through this if it wasn’t real. Dr. Jim Shorten

    So what do you propose to do for the person that is locked in the wrong body? Just let them suffer this fate for the rest of their life, If ANYTHING can be done to let them live in peace, without hurting anyone else, then JUST DO IT!

      I’m not certain what writer of the article proposes. I think ignoring the problem completely. I propose helping the person accept the reality of their situation and to develop effective coping strategies.

      That’s what psychologically healthy people do. In this case, they enjoy the benefits of peeing standing up, wear gender neutral clothing, and are the only guys watching Twilight movies.

      But if you want to stop their suffering, stop telling them they are in the wrong body. They are in the body they were born with, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with who and what they are. The fact that it’s different from other people, doesn’t make it wrong. It just makes it different.

    I don’t think people are running around making this stuff up. The person involved clearly has a problem. And with how little we know about how the brain works, there is little chance of actually picking it up on a brain scan.

    To assume that something doesn’t exist because it doesn’t show up on a brain scan is beyond foolish. We would have to dismiss autism and a number of other disorders as imaginary if we took that approach. The only real question is what to do about it.

    I’m not convinced that gender reassignment surgery is the best option. But I’m also not convinced that the problem should be ignored or that we should pretend that transgender individuals aren’t going through a difficult situation that professionals can help them cope with without the need for dangerous surgeries.

    As I understand it, gender reassignment surgery is becoming less common. (correct me if I’m wrong, but that is my take based on recent articles I’ve read). In any event however, shouldn’t the individual involved have the right to ultimately do with their own body what they wish?

    Much of the (for lack of a better term I will call it “problem”) faced by Transgender people appears to be to be more than a little bit exacerbated by societal bullying coming from, well, we ALL know where it comes from. So I suggest those of you who fall into this camp (and you know who you are) quit trying to play God and instead embrace the tenet of love Jesus died for trying to teach us.

      Jesus died so sick people can mutilate themselves before reaching maturity? Maybe you should have another read. Since you know how to do “real reading,” you’ll have no issue with that. Imagine if you came here with facts or counter arguments, not just tears and snark. I’d guess you’re more of a fan of MSNBC than the Bible
