"Male students, he fretted, will be so traumatized by girls seeing them "urinating or pulling their pants down to change into football gear" that it will "steal their ability to trust adults, shake their faith in any form of reality, traumatize them by shaming them and kindle waves of completely unnecessary anxiety."

This....is not the objection I was expecting.

I get the feeling that someone pointed at his pecker an laughed at him in the shower after gym when he was about 13, and he never quite recovered from it.

Wow.  Ablow sounds like he's trapped in the closet, obsessed with the thought of lads being thought of as inadequate by transgender boys who probably don't even care at any given point in their lives about this but rather just want to be indoctrinated into the group.

Why is Ablow applying psychological thought to a sociological situation?
 
2014-01-16 01:44:17 PM  
In the past, he has called transgenderism "a psychotic delusion - a fixed and false belief." He has falsely linked same-sex attraction to pedophilia and cited bogus anti-LGBT pseudo-science to claim that same-sex couples are not fit parents.

Well... I'll say this: with the nice fat check he gets for occasionally telling Fox News viewers what they want to hear, he probably isn't bothering to maintain a practice where he's... you know. Actually treating patients.

Which is good.

I'm still in the disgusted camp. He's actually worried about boys being traumatized for not being able to count on not being seen naked by the opposite gender? What about the millions of people being traumatized by he and his ilk telling them that they're delusional, deranged, psychotic pedophiles simply for wanting to be recognized for who they are?

He can rot.

What does the bible teach us about gender.  If someone is born with XXY chromosomal configuration, micro penis, testis, secondary female indicators and self identifies as a woman but is only attracted to other women.

Where are the missing chapters of this 2,000 year old book to guide us?

To say transgender doesn't exist when haven't even figured how to universally identify gender is pretty stupid.
 
2014-01-16 02:46:52 PM  
...he does not believe that transgender people are legitimate, but are actually delusional and in need of treatment.

And by "treatment" he probably means "prayer"

There are common cases in Canada and US of children born with both sets of genitals.  A frequent solution in past of this is castration and cutting off the penis.  In many cases, the child who felt like a boy, was raised as a girl.  There was also a doctor that specialized in treating these cases.  One of the main treatments in some of these cases  (I'm not making this up) was the male family members (brother/father) mock humping the "daughter" to eliminate gender confusion.  Resulted in some pretty farked up kids.

I could see how this "treatment" would be compatible with the GOP pro-rape agenda.

Now, when babies are born with both sets of equipment, they keep them until they figure out what types of sports they want to play when they grow up.

I saw a documentary on this and it was truly horrible/sad.  The family were good people and wanted to do what they thought was best for their child.  The doctor was not unlike this doctor on Fox.  I'm always surprised how common inter-sex is and how complicated gender identification is.  It is very far from a black and white issue.

The new law, he said shakes up boys' security of knowing that they "can count on not being seen naked by the opposite gender" and is therefore profoundly damaging and traumatizing.

When I was a student, "not being seen naked by the opposite gender" was my least favorite thing that I could count on.

I've been to conferences of the non-scientology anti-psych movement. Some of them are pretty out there too... but in the midst of it all there are some very valid points. I met this lady that claimed that she was given shock therapy that wasn't meant to help her but was given to her as a coercive means to get her to take the medication she was refusing. That's pretty farked up... specially since current ethical rules ban that practice. But shock therapy as coercion apparently still goes on in some places.

Yes, I went through that too. It's called puberty.

Still, the whole thing smells of trying too hard. Does the LGBT community actually try to push for their bisexual members? And why is it LGBT anyway? Did the lesbians lobby for first billing?

I agree.  This is disturbing on so many levels.

I saw a documentary on this and it was truly horrible/sad.  The family were good people and wanted to do what they thought was best for their child.  The doctor was not unlike this doctor on Fox.  I'm always surprised how common inter-sex is and how complicated gender identification is.  It is very far from a black and white issue.

I really don't understand this whole thing of designating gender at birth.  If only there was some sort of right of passage that socially indoctrinates a child to gender rather than assigning it before the child is even aware.  As for inter-sexed people, I have known one who was assigned a sex and gender at age 3.  I'm wondering how often the assignment is a mistake and said victims go in for a sex change.
