North Carolina’s ‘bathroom bill’ set on fast path to repeal

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – North Carolina lawmakers appear poised to repeal a controversial law widely derided as the “bathroom bill” because it requires transgender people to use restrooms corresponding with the sex on their birth certificate in many public buildings.

As part of the deal, the Charlotte City Council voted Monday to repeal the local nondiscrimination ordinance that first prompted legislators the pass the state law.

Opposition to the state law, called HB2, cost the state hundreds of jobs, several high-profile sports events and perhaps Gov. Pat McCrory a second term.

The repeal would be a remarkable sign of cooperation for Democratic Gov.-elect Roy Cooper and the GOP-controlled legislature. Just last week, lawmakers called a special session and stripped Cooper of some of his authority when he takes office next month.

The council’s move is contingent on North Carolina fully repealing HB2 by Dec. 31.

Charlotte City Councilwoman Claire Green Fallon said that when she walked into a breakfast with legislative leaders Monday, she had no idea the incoming governor and Republican leaders had struck a deal — apparently over the weekend — to dump the contentious law.

    This was a letter O sent it is not and never was a Federal Law. As to transgenders they usually cannot even be identified and have been using the bathrooms of their choice for ages. This entire situation had nothing to do with transgenders and everything to do with anyone who wanted to using any bathroom they want and making for a dangerous situation.

    Time for all to come to their senses and to take all O’s edits out along with Lynch’s threats when a community has a Muslim problem. We have been a people held in bondage by a Tyrant who used his FBI, CIA, Homeland Security along with every single office in this country to badger, force and to threaten the people and they all need to meet their day in court.

    ( — Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the former
    psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns
    Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor
    of Psychiatry, 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.

    Dr. McHugh, the author of six books and at least 125 peer-reviewed
    medical articles, made his remarks in a recent commentary
    in the Wall Street Journal, where he explained that
    transgender surgery is not the solution for people who suffer a
    “disorder of ‘assumption’” – the notion that their maleness
    or femaleness is different than what nature assigned to them

    He also reported on a new study showing that the suicide rate
    among transgendered people who had reassignment surgery is 20 times
    higher than the suicide rate among non-transgender people. Dr. McHugh
    further noted studies from Vanderbilt University and London’s
    Portman Clinic of children who had expressed transgender feelings but
    for whom, over time, 70%-80% “spontaneously lost those feelings.”

    While the Obama administration, Hollywood, and major media such as
    Time magazine promote transgenderism as normal, said Dr.
    McHugh, these “policy makers and the media are doing no favors
    either to the public or the transgendered by treating their
    confusions as a right in need of defending rather than as a mental
    disorder that deserves understanding, treatment and prevention.”

    “This intensely felt sense of being transgendered constitutes a
    mental disorder in two respects. The first is that the idea of sex
    misalignment is simply mistaken – it does not correspond with
    physical reality. The second is that it can lead to grim
    psychological outcomes.”

    The transgendered person’s disorder, said
    Dr. McHugh, is in the person’s “assumption” that they are
    different than the physical reality of their body, their maleness or
    femaleness, as assigned by nature. It is a disorder similar to a
    “dangerously thin” person suffering anorexia who looks in the
    mirror and thinks they are “overweight,” said McHugh.

    This assumption, that one’s gender is only in the mind
    regardless of anatomical reality, has led some transgendered people
    to push for social acceptance and affirmation of their own subjective
    “personal truth,” said Dr. McHugh. As a result, some states –
    California, New Jersey, and Massachusetts – have passed laws
    barring psychiatrists, “even with parental permission, from
    striving to restore natural gender feelings to a transgender minor,”
    he said.

    The pro-transgender advocates do not want to know, said McHugh,
    that studies show between 70% and 80% of children who express
    transgender feelings “spontaneously lose those feelings” over
    time. Also, for those who had sexual reassignment surgery, most said
    they were “satisfied” with the operation “but their subsequent
    psycho-social adjustments were no better than those who didn’t have
    the surgery.”

    Pro-transgender activists. The Obama administration announced in
    May that Medicare will now cover transgender surgical procedures.

    “And so at Hopkins we stopped doing sex-reassignment surgery,
    since producing a ‘satisfied’ but still troubled patient seemed
    an inadequate reason for surgically amputating normal organs,” said
    Dr. McHugh.

    The former Johns Hopkins chief of psychiatry also warned against
    enabling or encouraging certain subgroups of the transgendered, such
    as young people “susceptible to suggestion from ‘everything is
    normal’ sex education,” and the schools’ “diversity
    counselors” who, like “cult leaders,” may “encourage these
    young people to distance themselves from their families and offer
    advice on rebutting arguments against having transgender surgery.”

    Dr. McHugh also reported that there are “misguided doctors”
    who, working with very young children who seem to imitate the
    opposite sex, will administer “puberty-delaying hormones to render
    later sex-change surgeries less onerous – even though the drugs
    stunt the children’s growth and risk causing sterility.”

    Such action comes “close to child abuse,” said Dr. McHugh,
    given that close to 80% of those kids will “abandon their confusion
    and grow naturally into adult life if untreated ….”

    “’Sex change’ is biologically impossible,” said McHugh.
    “People who undergo sex-reassignment surgery do not change from men
    to women or vice versa. Rather, they become feminized men or
    masculinized women. Claiming that this is civil-rights matter and
    encouraging surgical intervention is in reality to collaborate with
    and promote a mental disorder.”
