A small group of transgenders has forced the nation to debate whether or not they can enter any men’s or women’s restroom they choose, regardless of how the were born.
The Obama Justice Department is going after North Carolina for their transgender bathroom law. And now, Target has made all of their stores unsafe with their transgender bathroom policy.
But a well-respected psychiatrist, Dr. Paul R. McHugh of Johns Hopkins University, just made an announcement that will make liberals furious: Transgendered men do not become women, nor can women become men!
Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins University and former psychiatrist–in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital, who has studied transgendered people for 40 years, said it is a scientific fact that “transgendered men do not become women, nor do transgendered women become men.”
All such people, he explained in an article for The Witherspoon Institute, “become feminized men or masculinized women, counterfeits or impersonators of the sex with which they ‘identify.’”
Dr. McHugh, who was psychiatrist-in-chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital for 26 years, the medical institute that had initially pioneered sex-change surgery – and later ceased the practice – stressed that the cultural meme, or idea that “one’s sex is fluid and a matter of choice” is extremely damaging, especially to young people.
The idea that one’s sexuality is a feeling and not a biological fact “is doing much damage to families, adolescents, and children and should be confronted as an opinion without biological foundation wherever it emerges,” said Dr. McHugh in his article, Transgenderism: A Pathogenic Meme.

Dr. McHugh opines, “I am ever trying to be the boy among the bystanders who points to what’s real. I do so not only because truth matters, but also because overlooked amid the hoopla—enhanced now by Bruce Jenner’s celebrity and Annie Leibovitz’s photography—stand many victims.”
Why are Dr. McHugh’s observations so controversial? Because he believes those who want to change their sex suffer from a serious psychiatric condition, instead of it being simple an accident of birth.
And as being transgendered has become more fashionable, more people who have attempted to “change their sex” end up suffering from depression. People who have undergone sex-reassignment surgery commit suicide 20 times more often then their peers. This is a dangerous condition, and they need treatment.
