The Gender Binary & LGBTI People: Religious Myth and Medical Malpractice (PowerPoint slides)

Designated as disordered rather than just different, LGBTI people have been and continue to be victims of medical malpractice purely because they are neither Adams nor Eves. Psychiatrists, surgeons, endocrinologists, pediatricians, and other medical experts have subjected LGBTI people to bogus and horrific treatments with reckless disregard for patient health and well-being―all the while ignoring the basic tenets of medical ethics and the ever-growing scientific evidence showing LGBTI people to be natural variations. Beyond this, medical stigmatization of LGBTI people has contributed to their oppression in the world at large. This treatise will contrast the scientific evidence with the ongoing medical (mis)treatment of LGBTI people to vividly illustrate the insidious effect of the biblical creation myth.
Here are the PowerPoint slides on this topic for my upcoming April 9th presentation at Northern Illinois University.

Trans Talk: Explore the Myth and Science of Sexuality (Radio Interview)

Recently I was the guest on a radio program called TransTalk (part of the Tenth Voice program series) to discuss the topic of the biology of sexual development and behavior, including gender identity and sexual orientation. Sorry that I didn't have time to say everything I would have liked to, but still I'm always glad for every opportunity to reach an audience with this important message about the naturalness of LGBTI people.

VIDEO – Gender Binary & LGBTI People: Myth and Medical Malpractice

Here is a video of the presentation “Gender Binary and LGBTI People: Myth and Medical Malpractice” that I gave on April 27, 2012 at the Freethought Festival organized by “Atheists, Humanists, and Agnostics” at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. This video clearly shows all the slides as I explain them, and is much easier to follow than the slideshow and audio file of this same presentation that I posted on May 13th.

This Freethought Festival was the first of its kind, and I am honored to have been a part of it. You can “attend” all the other thought-provoking Freethought Festival presentations at this link.

P.S.  Here are some comments from another site:

My PowerPoint slideshow and the accompanying audio recording of my presentation given on April 27th at the Freethought Festival 2012 in Madison, Wisconsin are below.  Click on the audio link (in a separate window) to listen to the presentation and then click on the slideshow to see the slides while you listen.
You will learn the science of sexual development in mammals that includes sexual identity and sexual orientation as well as the genitalia.   "Core sexuality" is discovered, not learned!   You will also learn how LGBTI people continue to be pathologized and subjected to unethical, bogus treatments by medical practitioners hell-bent on enforcing the gender binary.
