Nearly four decades after he derailed a pioneering transgender program at Johns Hopkins Hospital with his views on “guilt-ridden homosexual men,” psychiatrist Paul McHugh is seeing his institution come full circle with the resumption of gender-reassignment surgeries.
McHugh, the hospital’s chief of psychiatry from 1975 to 2001, still believes that being transgender is largely a psychological problem, not a biological phenomenon. And with the title of university distinguished service professor at Johns Hopkins Medicine, he continues to wield enormous influence in certain circles and is quoted frequently on gender issues in conservative media.
“I’m not against transgender people,” he said recently, stressing that he is “anxious they get the help they need.” But such help should be psychiatric rather than surgical, he maintains.
Hopkins, however, is moving beyond McHugh. This summer, it will formally open a transgender health service and will resume, after a 38-year hiatus, an accompanying surgical program.
He still wields tremendous power and sway with key medical decision-makers, and it is surprising it took until now to disavow his views. But progress is progress, better late than never.
Horoscopes by Gil Hizon - Week of August 13 - 19, 2017
A for Abysmal.
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
Lately, you’ve been resentful of your friends who don’t necessarily have their shit together but are doing phenomenal on the love front. Prepare for all that to change when you finally meet a… er… potential Mr. Potential. No matter how far you get this with bloke, rest assured that he will hang out with you at least long enough to make your posse jealous. =====
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
This week, you will realize that, yes, it is still possible to get even closer to a partner who you’ve shared practically everything with. The more adventures the two of you embark on, the more your bond will deepen. There is always something you bitches can discover about each other. Even if it’s your unexplainable freak out over Ke$ha’s new album. =====
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
If there was ever a question as to whether your relationship is on the rocks, this week, prepare for that inquiry to be erased AF. You and your partner have reached a higher level of understanding for your respective needs and desires. The way both of you have dealt with the shitshow the universe has thrown your way has caused respect to flourish in both your eyes. And you’re kinky enough to think that respect equates lust. =====
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
Consider this week to be a celebration of your love for your favorite person: YOU. Some bitches are not aware of how they act or behave to the outside world. You are so in tune with your psyche, it’s almost like you’re existing on a much higher plane that the other busted queens in your midst are. Really nourish this synergy, and it will last through the end of 20muthafucking17. =====
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
You will be getting your freak on with someone who’s not usually your type. And I have to say, with the level of thrill-seeking you possess, I. Ain’t. Not. Surprised. One. Muthafucking. Bit. You’ve always been enticed by things and hos you can’t understand. Once you’ve boiled down a bitch to her simplest, relatable substance, yo ass loses interest. It’s all good. We all have our… things. =====
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
Prepare for your love of your career to intensify this week, as certain competitive queens in your midst have decided to give up and fall off the radar. Now that you’re the only one left standing, you’re even more appealing to key decision makers in the workplace. Not only do you have the cunningness to do the job, you also have the innate ability to make longevity your bitch. =====
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
I’m sorry, but when it comes to love, you’re just not comfortable with that shit. Not. With. Any. Of. It. Because it forces you to come out of your mental state, a state in which you’re sooo comfortable with. Emotions are not necessarily your forte. You think that they’re, in a way, useless and that they tend to divert bitches from their true potential. I encourage you to think of navigating your treacherous cobweb of emotions as a challenge. Rest assured, your point of view would be more likely to change.
PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
The past few weeks have really strengthened your desire to stop looking at other bitches’ lanes and instead, learning how to focus and beautify your own. Although other hos may be doing well in their lives and you’re just trudging along, trust that everyone’s circumstance is different. You now realize that just because you’re down right now, it don’t mean you out, queen! =====
ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
Your partner’s way of overcoming his recent struggles has not just made you really horny for him, it has inspired you to do something about your “stagnant” life (your words, not mine). As an act-now-think-later type of bitch, you don’t usually wait for outside influences to kick yo ass into high gear. But since your intention is pure and self-nourishing, I advise you to not double-think that shit. =====
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
The thing about open relationships is that it’s not as freeing as the words suggest. Both partners will have to come together and agree on a set of terms that will make this arrangement fruitful and fulfilling to both parties. Although you and yo man are coming from both ends of the spectrum when it comes to this controversial topic, your willingness to communicate and be open will only lead to a strong compromise that will enrich your truly loving partnership. =====
GEMINI (May 21 – June 21)
Contracts, though impersonal, are a way to go. You’ve recently stumbled upon a partnership with a fellow business savvy bitch and although things have started off so well (personally, you two gel AF), you are beginning to see each other’s weird quirks. Instead of shying away from the things/behaviors you don’t understand, I urge you to embrace the diversity of your businessy relationship. This other ho may be able to do things you often have problems executing. It ain’t personal. It’s biznits. =====
CANCER (June 22 – July 22)
You are not on the up-and-up when it comes to negotiating contracts. A situation has arisen that now requires you to put all that love-relationship shit into paper. Not rock. Nor scissors. As a queen of faith, you’re uncomfortable about making shit too official, because it loses its meaning when it’s all converted into tangible documentation. Bitch, it’s 2017. Sign the fucking papers. =====

“The key duties of an agency publicist is to craft a client’s image in the best way possible that enhances his or her career,” says Jennifer Allen of Viewpoint. “This means coming up with a workable, yet flexible plan, executing it and refining it as the client’s career progresses. It demands a working knowledge and personal relationships with key media, decision-makers, key studio, network and production executives, all of whom are necessary to make the plan succeed.”
Viewpoint clients include Matt Damon, Dwayne Johnson, Kristen Stewart, Lily Tomlin, Zac Efron, Kate Mara, Kevin Bacon, and Jesse Eisenberg.
“The most important part of the job is being honest, both with the client, as well as the media and those involved with a particular project,” she says. “Not all things are possible, or even desirable at all times. Having the foresight and ability to select and generate correctly is key.
The role of a publicist in the general sense hasn’t changed; it’s everything around it that is constantly evolving and it’s our job to not only remain relevant but to progress with the changing times accordingly.”
If the publicist (and talent) are working at cross purposes from studio, network, and/or production executives, the plan will not succeed. I imagine that certain strategies then have to be revised. Which can be very very difficult.
