Just the (LGBT) Facts, Ma'am, Mister & Anything In Between

Say you studied the relevant research and literature and discovered:

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.

Say, also that you are "currently a scholar in residence in the Department of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and a professor of statistics and bio-statistics at Arizona State University." Up until July 1, 2016, you "also held part-time faculty appointments at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and School of Medicine, and at the Mayo Clinic."

And you studied hundreds of reports and articles on research and found:

Compared to the general population, non-heterosexual sub-populations are at an elevated risk for a variety of adverse health and mental health outcomes.

And:

Members of the transgender population are also at higher risk of a variety of mental health problems compared to members of the non-transgender population. Especially alarmingly, the rate of lifetime suicide attempts across all ages of transgender individuals is estimated at 41%, compared to under 5% in the overall U.S. population.

And concluded:

Only a minority of children who experience cross-gender identification will continue to do so into adolescence or adulthood…. There is no evidence that all children who express gender-atypical thoughts or behavior should be encouraged to become transgender.

Would you publish these and other controversial findings?

Lawrence S. Mayer, M.B., M.S., Ph.D., did just that in The New Atlantis. He says, "I am a biostatistician and epidemiologist who focuses on the design, analysis, and interpretation of experimental and observational data in public health and medicine, particularly when the data are complex in terms of underlying scientific issues. I am a research physician, having trained in medicine and psychiatry in the U.K. and received the British equivalent (M.B.) to the American M.D."

And he boldly claims:

I support every sentence in this report, without reservation and without prejudice regarding any political or philosophical debates. This report is about science and medicine, nothing more and nothing less.

Read the report. Watch the hate mail (but don't read it). If only our leaders would get up to date with the science. . . .
