MILO: ‘Imagine If We Treated Anorexics Like Trannies’


Breitbart Senior Editor Milo Yiannopoulos spoke tonight at the University of Delaware in a discussion titled “TRANNIES ARE GAY.”

MILO spoke to a crowded room of young college students, describing the difference in treatment that a mental illness like Anorexia would receive if it were to be classed as an LGBT issue. 

“I want you to imagine the struggles of a fellow student.  They feel they don’t belong in their body.  They were born the wrong shape, and when they look into a mirror, they see something alien, it isn’t them. This fellow student will go to any lengths to become the person they KNOW they are on the inside.  It may involve drug usage, mutilation, or starvation.” said MILO.

“You may think I am describing a transexual, but I’m not- I’m describing a young person with Anorexia Nervosa. Anorexia Nervosa is a mental disorder.  When detected, the sufferer will receive counselling and other mental health treatment to stop their destructive behaviors and learn to recover both mentally and physically. Many sufferers of Anorexia end up leading normal and productive lives, and even maintain a healthy weight.”

Milo paused before, saying “Now imagine if Anorexia was on the LGBT spectrum.”

“How would treatment differ?” asked MILO. “The Anorexia would not be called a mental disorder, but something else, something non-offensive, maybe a condition. It would be encouraged by parents and mental healthcare providers.  The trans-eating would be praised for their strength and encouraged not to eat.  They might even get surgery to remove some ribs to be even thinner. It’s sick and disgusting, but that largely describes how gender dysphoria, formerly known as gender identity disorder, is treated today.”

MILO continued. “Some are still brave enough to say the truth, for example Dr. Paul McHugh, the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry, who has said that transgenderism is a ‘mental disorder’ that merits treatment, that sex change is ‘biologically impossible,’ and that people who promote sexual reassignment surgery are ‘collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder.’”

“He said that and didn’t get droned by the Obama administration. I’m shocked!”
