  • My New Vagina Won’t Make Me Happy

    New York Times ^ | November 24, 2018 | Andrea Long Chu
    Next Thursday, I will get a vagina. The procedure will last around six hours, and I will be in recovery for at least three months. Until the day I die, my body will regard the vagina as a wound; as a result, it will require regular, painful attention to maintain. This is what I want, but there is no guarantee it will make me happier. In fact, I don’t expect it to. That shouldn’t disqualify me from getting it. I like to say that being trans is the second-worst thing that ever happened to me. (The worst was being born...

    The far-right Brazilian populist Jair Bolsonaro has secured a resounding victory in the first-round of his country’s presidential election, but fallen just short of the majority required to avoid a second-round run-off. After a campaign as improbable and electrifying as any Brazilian telenovela – although infinitely more consequential for the future of one of the world’s largest and most diverse democracies – Bolsonaro secured 46.93% of votes - with 94% of all votes counted. second-placed candidate, the leftist Workers’ party Fernando Haddad, won 28% of the vote, according to Brazil’s superior electoral court, the TSE. Behind him came the Democratic...

    Julie Swetnick, one of the women accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, faced allegations of her own misconduct during a short stint at a Portland tech company 18 years ago. Swetnick, 55, became the third woman in recent weeks to raise allegations against Kavanaugh. She issued a statement Wednesday in which she claimed she'd observed Kavanaugh at alcohol-fueled parties where women were mistreated. Her attorney is Michael Avenatti, a fierce critic of President Donald Trump who is reportedly considering a presidential run in 2020. Avenatti also represents Stormy Daniels, an adult film actress who claims to have...

    One Democrat has become so concerned with Donald Trump's mental health that she has reached out to the psychologist behind a political group calling for the president to be removed from office. California Representative Jackie Speier, has contacted John Gartner, a former assistant professor at Johns Hopkins medical school and founder of Duty to Warn, her office confirmed to Newsweek Tuesday. A collection of mental health professionals, the political action committee has advocated for Trump’s removal under the 25th Amendment.

    Baltimore firefighters have evacuated two medical research buildings due to possible tuberculosis contamination. A Johns Hopkins Medicine spokeswoman says the fire department is investigating 'the possible release of a small amount of tuberculosis' in an internal bridge between two cancer research buildings. Officials did not say how it might have been released.

    Researchers at Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center researchers developed a single blood test that screens for eight common cancer types and helps identify the location of the cancer, AsiaNet Pakistan reported. The test, called CancerSEEK, is a unique noninvasive, multi-analyte test that simultaneously evaluates levels of eight cancer proteins and the presence of cancer gene mutations from circulating DNA in the blood. The test is aimed at screening for eight common cancer types that account for more than 60 percent of cancer deaths in the US. Five of the cancers covered by the test currently have no screening test. “The...

    Colleges may not celebrate Christmas, but they have no shortage of snowflakes. "A few years ago, Boston College psychology professor emeritus Peter Gray was invited by the head of counseling services at a major university to a conference on 'the decline in resilience among students,'" Lenore Skenazy and Jonathan Haidt write in the latest issue of Reason magazine. "The organizer said that emergency counseling calls had doubled in the last five years." "What's more, callers were seeking help coping with everyday problems, such as arguments with a roommate. Two students had dialed in because they'd found a mouse in their...

    NATIONAL POST ^ | 11/27/11 | RANDY BOSWELL
    In a relatively rare admission for an American scholar, a leading U.S. historian who authored a provocative new tome about North American military conflicts states bluntly that Canada won the War of 1812. Johns Hopkins University professor Eliot Cohen, a senior adviser to former U.S. secretary of state Condoleezza Rice, writes in his just-published book Conquered Into Liberty that, “ultimately, Canada and Canadians won the War of 1812.” And Cohen acknowledges that, “Americans at the time, and, by and large, since, did not see matters that way.”

    A study conducted by former psychiatrist-in-chief at Johns Hopkins University, Paul McHugh, and a colleague of his, were blasted by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), a group representing the LGBT community, the College Fix reported. The HRC knocked 25 points off JHU's rating on the Health Equality Index (HEI) the group compiles. The group wants the university to disavow the study. So far, the administrators have not done so. Nonetheless, three professors from JHU's Bloomberg School wrote an op-ed critical of the McHugh study which appeared in The Baltimore Sun. Also, a petition protesting the McHugh report is circulating at...

    Nearly 600 health experts have signed onto a letter condemning a 143-page report issued last year by two distinguished scholars at Johns Hopkins University that argued there isn't enough scientific evidence to suggest that people are born with a certain sexual orientation or gender identity. As previously reported, Paul McHugh, a professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Johns Hopkins, and Johns Hopkins scholar-in-residence Lawrence Mayer authored a report on sexuality and gender published in The New Atlantis last August that, among other things, refuted claims that sexual orientation and gender dysphoria are caused by natural traits and innate behavior.Although...

    Bipartisan Report ^ | January 27, 2017 | Olive Murphy
    If there’s one thing we can say about Donald Trump, it’s that he’s unlike any other world leader we’ve seen to date. The problem, however, is that his differences fail to set him apart in a positive manner. Almost daily, Trump tweets about the “biased media,” “fake news,” or a world leader who has suddenly done something so terrible that he must take to Twitter to publicly berate them. Notice, however, that it’s always someone else with the problem. It’s never him. However, John D. Gartner, a registered psychotherapist from the renowned Johns Hopkins University Medical School seems to think...

    In a recent study published by Johns Hopkins University, entitled "Firearms on College Campuses: Research Evidence and Policy Implications," ten authors push back against the campus carry movement, whereby state legislatures have given college students the right to carry firearms on college campuses in light of mass shootings. Although the researchers gave a detailed background on the progression of the campus carry movement, complete with brief summaries of court cases on campus carry, the authors' anti-gun narratives are apparent throughout the study. The authors make twenty-four references to gun rights advocate and author John Lott and focus on an attempt...

    The Left and LGBTQ community are in an uproar over a recent study published in The New Atlantis scientific journal, which confronts the oft-repeated narrative that homosexuality is innate. At Patheos, college psychology professor Warren Throckmorton took issue with several parts of the study. He believes that the study "was not a study, but a review and summary of empirical studies." He was not pleased that The New Atlantis journal is not peer-reviewed, and claims that the co-author, Lawrence Mayer, "is not well known in sexuality research circles" and alleges that the study omitted other studies and research. Throckmorton also...

    A literature review, which is often called a study by the media, conducted by Johns Hopkins professor Dr. Paul R. McHugh and epidemiologist Dr. Lawrence S. Mayer has led to an outcry by the Left and LGBTQ community due to their findings. McHugh is a University Distinguished Professor of Psychiatry at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and had served as a psychiatrist-in-chief for the Johns Hopkins University Hospital and Mayer works at the Arizona State University. In the executive summary, the authors point out that: â—Ź "The understanding of sexual orientation as an innate, biologically fixed property of...

    In their rush to provide a warm, inclusive and diverse environment for all, save--of course--Christians and conservatives, university officials might want to ask themselves whether they are becoming what Pope Francis called "gender ideologues" and engaging in their own stereotyping. Not far from our office in Bethesda, Maryland, in College Park, "The University of Maryland has been named to Campus Pride's 2016 'Best of the Best' Top 30 list of LGBTQ-friendly colleges and universities" for promoting "diversity, inclusion and safety for LGBTQ students." Further away, in Richmond, Virginia's state capital, Virginia Commonwealth University is celebrating "forty years of LGBTQ activism."...

    Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins University and former psychiatrist–in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital, who has studied sexuality for 40 years, said it is a scientific fact that “there is no gay gene.” “Environment,” however, “is very important,” said Dr. McHugh, author of The Mind Has Mountains: Reflections on Society and Psychiatry. He also explained that the permissive sexual culture in the United States today has confused “desire” with “love,” and that homosexuality is a false or “erroneous desire.” In an interview with Virtue Online: The Voice for Global Orthodox Anglicanism, reporter Lydia...

    (CNSNews.com) -- Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry, said that transgenderism is a “mental disorder” that merits treatment, that sex change is “biologically impossible,” and that people who promote sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder. Dr. McHugh, the author of six books and at least 125 peer-reviewed medical articles, made his remarks in a recent commentary in the Wall Street Journal, where he explained that transgender surgery is not the solution for people who suffer a “disorder of ‘assumption’” – the notion...

    The idea that one’s sex is a feeling, not a fact, has permeated our culture and is leaving casualties in its wake. Gender dysphoria should be treated with psychotherapy, not surgery. For forty years as the University Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins Medical School—twenty-six of which were also spent as Psychiatrist in Chief of Johns Hopkins Hospital—I’ve been studying people who claim to be transgender. Over that time, I’ve watched the phenomenon change and expand in remarkable ways. A rare issue of a few men—both homosexual and heterosexual men, including some who sought sex-change surgery because they...

    Emergency workers in hazmat gear visited a Baltimore neighborhood Sunday to transport a person showing Ebola-like symptoms to Johns Hopkins Hospital for testing, city officials said. “The testing is being done out of an abundance of caution,” Baltimore health commissioner Leana Wen said in a statement. “All protocols have been followed for safe transport of the patient and the system is working as intended. There is no danger to the public at large.” The person was collected by emergency personnel wearing hazmat gear near the intersection of West North Avenue and Maryland Avenue around midday Sunday, according to a police...
