Title: To the APA, Transgenderism is Fine but Masculinity is a Mental Illness

In 2015, the American Psychological Association released new guidance on how their members should work with people suffering from gender confusion. The first rule: They aren’t confused. Hell, they don’t even need to be treated for mental illness at all. No, in fact, it is YOU who are confused and ignorant. Ignorant as to the deep, rich history of transgender people in the United States and other cultures throughout the world!

“Psychologists who work with transgender or gender nonconforming people should seek to provide acceptance, support and understanding without making assumptions about their clients’ gender identities or gender expressions, according to practice guidelines adopted during the American Psychological Association’s 123rd Annual Convention,” the official website reported at the time.

They talked to the chairperson of the task force, Dr. Anneliese Singh.

“We hope that these guidelines provide useful information that will enable psychologists to provide competent, sensitive and well-informed care and research,” said Singh. “Additionally, they are written in everyday language so they may be helpful to virtually anyone seeking a deeper understanding of transgender and gender nonconforming people. It is critically important that psychologists are informed about how to not only work with transgender people across the lifespan, but also understand that transgender people have existed in multiple cultures and countries around the world for hundreds of years.”

Hmm, does this sound like guidance meant to get transgender patients the mental help they really need? Or does it sound like language carefully crafted to ensure that the APA does not fall afoul of the SJW leftists and the LGBT mafia?

Well, if you said the latter, you will not be surprised by the APA’s latest new guidelines, which aim to set standards for working with men and boys. The bottom line: Transgenderism may not be a mental illness, but masculinity absolutely is.

From the APA’s announcement:

For the first time ever, APA is releasing guidelines to help psychologists work with men and boys.

At first blush, this may seem unnecessary. For decades, psychology focused on men (particularly white men), to the exclusion of all others. And men still dominate professionally and politically: As of 2018, 95.2 percent of chief operating officers at Fortune 500 companies were men. According to a 2017 analysis by Fortune, in 16 of the top companies, 80 percent of all high-ranking executives were male. Meanwhile, the 115th Congress, which began in 2017, was 81 percent male.

But something is amiss for men as well. Men commit 90 percent of homicides in the United States and represent 77 percent of homicide victims. They’re the demographic group most at risk of being victimized by violent crime. They are 3.5 times more likely than women to die by suicide, and their life expectancy is 4.9 years shorter than women’s. Boys are far more likely to be diagnosed with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder than girls, and they face harsher punishments in school—especially boys of color.

APA’s new Guidelines for Psychological Practice With Boys and Men strive to recognize and address these problems in boys and men while remaining sensitive to the field’s androcentric past. Thirteen years in the making, they draw on more than 40 years of research showing that traditional masculinity is psychologically harmful and that socializing boys to suppress their emotions causes damage that echoes both inwardly and outwardly.

Those three paragraphs kick off the announcement. The first one is an abject apology to SJW-sensitive readers who might stand up and shout: Hey, men suck! The…the patriarchy! Why are you doing ANYTHING to help them? Once that’s out of the way, they outline some very good reasons for rolling out the guidelines. Men in this country are suffering, no doubt. But in the third, they come around to telling us that the only problem with men is “traditional masculinity.”

The article does not explain why traditional masculinity was not a “problem” for the 2,000 years prior to 1970. It does not explain why we’re only seeing this explosion in suicide rates now. Perhaps because to look too deeply into those issues would be to inadvertently criticize the social revolution their buddies on the left have engineered?

We could be persuaded to believe that in 2015, when the APA came out and said that being transgender was just fine and dandy, they were merely crouching in cowardice. But in 2019, they are actively carrying water for an agenda that aims to strip men of everything that makes them men. Pretty sad to see our entire scientific community powering up behind these dangerous ideologies, but this is where we are now.


Poster Comment:

Psychiatrists are mostly useless in a well-ordered society where the government is not filled with leftist crazies who dwell on sexual matters with gluttonous gusto.

Psychological "help" is the rood cause of the psychosis griping our (once) Creator inspired America! Ayn Rand explains the John Dewy et-al. psychology used to destroy a kids critical thinking brain to make mindless dumb-down groupthink zombies I.E. Lib Democrats! Google her writings on the "Comprachicos" @ Stephen Hicks or @ education. Godless brain hacking is such an ugly thing. It pays to understand the scam!
