    LGBT Group Threatens Johns Hopkins Over Study on Homosexuality, Transgender

    In a remarkable case of agenda politics eclipsing science, America’s largest LGBT group has threatened harm to Johns Hopkins University if it doesn’t censor the scientific findings of leading scholars on the origins of homosexuality and transgenderism.

    In a recent major study titled “Sexuality and Gender: Findings from the Biological, Psychological, and Social Sciences,” researchers from Johns Hopkins found that there is virtually no scientific evidence that people are born gay or transgender.
    In response, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the most powerful lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer advocacy group in the country, labelled the report an “attack on LGBT communities” and threatened to penalize Johns Hopkins University if it does not distance itself from the study.
    HRC Foundation’s Healthcare Equality Index has begun rating hospitals with a numerical score this year and will evaluate whether hospitals’ practices reflect “responsible citizenship” (read: LGBT-friendly). If Hopkins’ leadership refuses to censor the study, “its Healthcare Equality Index score will be reduced substantially,” the LGBTQ group stated.
    The scholars conducting the study bear the highest credentials in the field. Dr. Paul R. McHugh is arguably the most important American psychiatrist of the last half-century, and served as director of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science at Johns Hopkins University for 27 years. Importantly, during McHugh’s tenure, the institute pioneered work with transgender individuals.


    In their 116-page report, the scholars analyzed research from the biological, psychological, and social sciences, and concluded that many of the most frequently heard claims about sexuality and gender are not supported by scientific evidence.
    “Some of the most widely held views about sexual orientation, such as the ‘born that way’ hypothesis, simply are not supported by science. The literature in this area does describe a small ensemble of biological differences between non-heterosexuals and heterosexuals, but those biological differences are not sufficient to predict sexual orientation, the ultimate test of any scientific finding,” the report said.
    Ever faithful to its agenda, the Human Rights Campaign wants to bully Johns Hopkins into stifling free scientific inquiry when the results run contrary to its deeply held beliefs and desires. It is willing to punish a world-class institution for protecting academic freedom.
    Fortunately, officials at Johns Hopkins seem to have enough integrity to reject these heavy-handed attempts, at least for now.

    More bullying by Gay rights activist against science. If Gays are for equality, why are they against scientific research? I would like to hear from the Liberal science people why Gays would be against science, could it be they are afraid of the truth? Of course we know its a choice , because there is no science to support their claims. Those that tell us global warming has scientific proof will tell us Gays don't need to be proved by science. If they don't need proof, then why should we be sued for discrimination if what they are is not really true.

    Objection your honor.

    The New Atlantis, publisher of the "study", is not a peer reviewed scientific journal.

    You don't peer review medical studies, (they are double blind studies). Nice try at deflecting. but you failed.

    Um, that is reflexive gibberish.

    Legitimate medical journals do peer review before publishing.

    there's only one study mentioned in the OP. Compared to all of these , 15 to be exact, that disagree.

    Also, in reading the sources provided in the OP this jumped out.

    Dr. Paul R. McHugh, arguably the most important American psychiatrist of the last half-century .

    Considering all the discrimination and hate that they gay community still gets to this day, why would anyone choose to endure that??

    All the gay people I know, knew it by they time they reached jr. high if not sooner.
