Journal: Transgenderism ‘Not Supported By Scientific Evidence’

Although popular culture and many of the leading media organizations have bought wholeheartedly into the idea that gender identity is something distinct from one’s biological sex — that a man could be born in a woman’s body or vice versa — such beliefs have no grounding in any credible scientific evidence, according to a report published Monday in the journal The New Atlantis.

Arizona State University professor of statistics and biostatistics Lawrence S. Mayer and John Hopkins University Medical School professor of psychiatrics Paul McHugh co-authored the report, which examined top peer-reviewed studies in the biological, psychological, and social sciences.

“Examining research from the biological, psychological, and social sciences, this report shows that some of the most frequently heard claims about sexuality and gender are not supported by scientific evidence,” they noted.

Among the key findings listed by the authors was that, “The hypothesis that gender identity is an innate, fixed property of human beings that is independent of biological sex — that a person might be ‘a man trapped in a woman’s body’ or ‘a woman trapped in a man’s body’ — is not supported by scientific evidence.”

    Of course not. Common sense could have told you that. Parents who let their children mutilate themselves in the name of progressivism need to be locked up and kept from harming any other children. Same with any doctor who goes along with these delusions.

    Could there be anything more ridiculous than a man who thinks he’s a woman?

    Homosexual behavior in the animal kingdom is always associated by some form of pathology, diet, sleep deprivation, shows of dominance, etc. I don’t see why it would be any different among humans.

    Analogous to the witch panics of the 16th and 17th Centuries. Historians and plebs four hundred years from now will wonder and scoff at the delusional, superstitious dolts of the late 20th and early 21st Centuries. (Throw the cults of Global Warming and Socialism into the pot, and its possible we’ll be viewed less favourably than them that lived five hundred years before us.)

      Sex changes are the new blood lettings.

    Gosh, perverted weirdos aren’t normal. Who’d have guessed? Science sure is something.

    You mean that guy I used to frequently see at McD’s, the short and fat one that looked like Mr Magoo, wore a dress, wig, beret, powdered his hairy chest, and stank of shit was nuts?

    Go figure.

    The best I can do for these people is feel sorry for them. When they become militant all bets are off.
