Fox News' Expert Claims Transgender People Don't Exist

Dr. Keith Ablow, one of Fox News' most Fox Newsy-type regular commentators, has erased the transgender community from the historic record completely in a new piece for the network. 

In response to California's law protecting trans students, Ablow writes:

...I believe that children have enough to deal with as they struggle to feel comfortable with their bodies, with the notion of privacy and with later changes involving puberty without urging them to grapple with the notion that their souls may have been born into the wrong bodies.  

What’s more, I don’t believe we have definitive data (although many psychiatrists with very impressive credentials, who seem to mean well, assert that we do) that any male or female soul has ever in the history of the world been born into the wrong anatomic gender.

Let me put that more clearly:  I am not convinced by any science I can find that people with definitively male DNA and definitively male anatomy can actually be locked in a cruel joke of nature because they are actually female. 

And we are not convinced by any science that this man is a doctor.

Remember, the easiest way to solve a problem (e.g., bigotry and persecution of the LGBT community) is to simply deny its existence.

Enter the warped minds of FOX News commentators and analysts.

Does anybody care what this person thinks?  If he had any balls, maybe he could grow same hair.

The problem is that too many people do listen to this man. When he proclaims that he's a Dr and spouts his nonsense on TV, too many people are quick to see him as credible.  His remarks, although based in ignorance, can have a powerful impact and the LGBT community must stand up to to him and people like him. It won't stop unless we make it stop. 

I can't imagine that anyone would mutilate their bodies to the point of cutting their cocks of just for the fun of it. However I must say that these "transgender" need to be made to live within the body they were born, and realize they are lucky to be alive and healthy. I can ALWAYS spot the transgender freaks, as they NEVER fully lose their masculine traits. Thye should all be banished to an island similar to those with leprosy.

The women transitioning to men are the worst, as they will NEVER have a functioning penis, only a flabby section of skin that must be inlated like a balloon that only measures about 4 inches long. Pathetic!!

Trans Gender people are far more than there genitalia.  Do you think they don't know that their birth traits often remain to some degree.  Obviously, they don't change their bodies "for the fun of it".  Clearly you can't imagine what it's like to be born in a body that doesn't match your mind, but maybe you should try.  Try to empathize.  Think what it must be like to grow up in the wrong body & how difficult it would be to come to terms with that yourself & then the courage that it must take to tell people that & then go through multiple painful surgeries, just to try to become the person that you know you should be.  This is not something that anyone would take lightly.  Imagine how hard it would be to grow up & live in a world where people call you "freak" & say things like "They should all be banished to an island similar to those with leprosy."  Do you think that people would pick that life if they felt they had any other option?  Trans people are some of the bravest & most admirable people.  There is good & bed in everyone, we're none of us perfect, but we should all try to empathize with each other & treat each other with respect & understanding.  THINK!

I don't believe he exists.

More uneducated trash from the uneducated worthless trash that is Keith Ablow, a rabidly grotesque, mentally unstable failure on every level of civilized humanity that belongs in a padded cell for the safety of civilized, sane human beings.

I am not convinced by any science that he is human let alone a man. In fact, I know he is neither.

Ok - pretty much he is calling the American Medical Association as wrong and he is right even though he has not done any study nor show proof.  He is just your typical asshole in Fox.
