Bisexual conflict and gender confusion lie at the core of all mental illnesses, from slight neurosis up to and including the most acute forms of schizophrenia.
Washington, DC (Vocus) April 19, 2010
Mankind has long searched for the cause and meaning of madness. Now, author and former Atlanta Journal Constitution writer J. Michael Mahoney says that he has uncovered the cause and meaning of schizophrenia. Not surprisingly, Mahoney’s findings are generating controversial ripples across the mental health industry.
His book Schizophrenia: The Bearded Lady Disease provides what the author says are “numerous documented case histories and theoretical constructs which clearly illuminate the origins of madness”.
In Schizophrenia: The Bearded Lady Disease, Mahoney has compiled a comprehensive collection of over 600 quotations, each followed by his explanatory comment, all which he says “point inexorably to the factor of unconscious bisexual conflict/gender confusion as forming the basic etiological role in all functional mental illness, including schizophrenia. Bisexual conflict and gender confusion lie at the core of all mental illnesses, from slight neurosis up to and including the most acute forms of schizophrenia.”
Mahoney is an Ivy League graduate, former federal government employee, Air Force veteran and journalist with stints as a reporter in Ohio, Georgia and as a foreign correspondent in Africa. After reporting a series of stories on mental illness piqued his interest in psychology, Mahoney has devoted years of attention the research that has led to the publication of Schizophrenia: The Bearded Lady Disease. He is also the author of the book TOPSY TURVY.
