Keith Ablow: Transgenders don't need protection because they don't exist

Despite having already claimed President Obama won in 2012 due to Stockholm Syndrome and caused the shutdown out of some sort of feeling of self-loathing, there are still people out there who can keep a straight face whenever Keith Ablow pretends to be a real psychiatrist.

On Tuesday, Ablow published a temper tantrum against California's new law protecting transgender students, which he claims promotes nothing but "toxicity."

Ablow basis this claim on his belief that transgenders don't actually exist.

Ablow begins by claiming that young children who see others identifying as trans will want to be trans too, and in the process completely confuses the difference between sex and gender:

"The mere fact that teachers and administrators will have to explain to kindergarten and first-grade students that they might see girls in the boys’ restroom," he writes, "or boys in the girls’ locker room, but that those really aren’t kids of the gender they appear to be, could (and, here, data is sorely lacking) do harm to their own developing sense of self by suggesting to them that their gender is fluid, that it well might change for them, too, and that they should be on the lookout for signs that they want to switch."

From here, Ablow goes on to claim that transgenders do not even exist:

"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."

By his own admission, Ablow's assertion relies on deliberate neglect of "many psychiatrists with very impressive credentials."

Who needs science when you've got a stick up your butt? Wouldn't you agree Keith?
