Transgender Surgery Big Moneymaker

Transgender Surgery Big Moneymaker –The Wall Street Journal, May 3, had a great article by Abigail Shrier concerning Paul McHugh, the brilliant doctor who shut down Johns Hopkins Hospital’s Gender Identity Clinic while the hospital’s psychiatrist in chief in 1979.

“(The hospital) wasted scientific and technical resources and damaged our professional credibility by collaborating with madness rather than trying to study, cure, and ultimately prevent it,”  he said.

The clinic was reopened as the Center for Transgender Health in 2017, performing what it now calls “gender-affirming surgeries.”

“Demand is massive,” Ms. Shrier reports.

The complicated operations are “big moneymakers,” she was told.

We guess that’s the rest of the story.

“Either the plastic surgeons and the transgender psychiatrists are right and I’m wrong—and if that’s the case, they will have done a lot of good by opposing me, and I will have been a drag on the system,” said McHugh, who has just turned 88. “Or the opposite. Suppose they’re wrong and I’m right? They will have mutilated thousands of children, and I will look good. Who do you think is sleeping better at night?”

One thought on “Transgender Surgery Big Moneymaker”

  1. Absolutely money driven. Those psychiatrists and plastic surgeons don’t care about the harm they are doing to those people who are genuinely confused (it is called gender dysphoria – when a person cannot accept their body the way it is). What is being kept secret are the voices of those people who had the surgery and live to regret it or commit suicide because they can’t live with it.

    Would you encourage a person who is anorexic to continue to starve her/himself?
