Transgenderism is a Mental Illness, Not Something to be Affirmed
Every other day, there seems to be another story about a transgender teacher somewhere in a U.S. public school pushing their agenda and actively helping to warp the minds of children into believing they may have been born in the wrong body. It’s absurd and, regardless of whether or not you think you were born the wrong gender, you can only pretend to change it.
Thanks to distance learning during the totalitarian and useless lockdowns and also thanks to Libs of Tik Tok, we’ve seen a lot of these teachers, including many pre-school teachers, bragging about how they talk to the kids behind their parents’ backs.
Here are a few examples of the sickness that is overtaking our once rational and logical society:
And then there’s Jen Psaki….she’s all about talking to kids about gender identity as they’re learning their colors because she’s either really that dumb or feels she has to appear to be with the hipsters, the Godless left, who are all for cutting off kids healthy body parts, giving them body and mind altering drugs and affirming whatever their undeveloped minds tell them.
Maybe one of the most dangerous people out there is someone who, though seemingly unqualified for the position, is the Assistant Secretary of Health. He is Richard Levine. He goes by the name “Rachel” and believes he is a woman. He belongs on a psych ward.
This guy (yes, I unapologetically deadnamed him and “misgendered” him). He is a full-on trans activist, wishing to affirm all children who claim to be something they neither are nor can ever be…a person of the opposite sex.
Shhhhhhh….don’t say it out loud but, yes, Rachel Levine is A MAN! Does this suddenly seem like we’re talking about a child playing dress-up? Hard to believe this is an actual adult.
At the risk of sounding holier than thou, I assert these people are brain damaged and should not be trusted, EVER, to be alone with children. This is child abuse, plain and simple, and those who secretly “counsel” kids are woefully unqualified to “teach” them anything, let alone be a “psychologist” to them. Stay in your lane, fools!
Just today, there was a story trending on MSN, Blaze Media, NY Post and other websites claiming that CBS told its “journalists” not to mention that the perp in last Monday’s Coventry School was transgender.
From Blaze Media:
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the American Medical Association (AMA), you would think, would have sense and be above being “woke.” But, that’s not the case at all.
Particularly troubling is the AAP. They are supposed to adhere to the Hippocratic Oath and “do no harm.” But they’re on board with destroying the young lives they are suppose to keep well.
According to a story at AAP:
Transgender and gender-diverse children face many challenges in life, but, like all children, they can grow into happy and healthy adults when supported and loved throughout their development. That is the underlying message within a new policy statement published by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) called, “Ensuring Comprehensive Care and Support for Transgender and Gender-Diverse Children and Adolescents.” The statement, to be published October 2018 issue of Pediatrics (published Sept. 17 online) aims to help pediatricians and parents navigate health concerns of gender-diverse youth while advocating for ways to eliminate discrimination and stigma.
In April of 2022, Matthew Holloway wrote in The Western Journal:
It would appear that the American Academy of Pediatrics has traded real scientific inquiry from real doctors for the left’s realpolitik embrace of transgenderism at any cost. Even if that price is paid by their patients. Comments leaked from the AAP by a whistleblower that are now widely reported by Fox News and the U.K. Daily Mail have shown physicians giving voice to their outrage over not merely the organization’s prescribe-first-ask-questions-later attitude regarding the unknown consequences of puberty-blocking drugs on teens, but of the academy’s efforts to silence their inquiries.
From August of 2022 comes an an article from Daily Mail that says, in part:
Pediatricians across America are at war with their own professional body over controversial puberty-blocking drugs routinely handed to teens wanting to change gender, DailyMail.com can reveal. The top child health experts accuse the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) of pushing the 'harmful' drugs on transgender-identifying youngsters, according to damning leaked documents. Disturbingly, the documents also reveal experts believe the APP is deliberately silencing internal criticism by blocking moves for a crucial policy review.
The AMA posted a press release in June of 2021, which read, in part:
The American Medical Association (AMA) today strengthened its established position opposing the governmental intrusion into the practice of medicine that is detrimental to the health of transgender and gender-diverse children and adults. Legislatures in 20 states this year proposed banning physicians and other health care professionals from providing medically necessary gender-affirming care to transgender and gender-diverse youth. In response to this legislative trend, physicians and medical students at the AMA’s House of Delegates meeting voted to meaningfully expand the organization’s strong opposition to undue restrictions on medical care to populations that have been politicized in state legislatures.
I feel justified in my anger with the intellectual class who, naturally, look down on people like us because we aren’t “educated” like they are. We’re a bunch of knuckle dragging neanderthals who cling to God and guns and listen to southern rock and country music. They have more sophisticated palate, sipping wine while listening to classical music and leftist propaganda (masquerading as news) on NPR.
In reality, these people aren’t grounded in reality. They’ve been drinking the proverbial Kool Aid. They likely pray to false idols like Al Gore and Klaus Schwab who art working very hard to save the earth from evil knuckle dragging, fossil fuel burning, cisgender white men.
They, on the other hand, are working tirelessly on behalf of the greater good by eating no animal based food, driving an electric of hybrid vehicle and destroying human beings by telling them something which is COMPLETELY opposed to real science; that a boy can change into a girl and vise versa. If they believe what they say is true, than I will just go ahead and call them “stupid” and assert that their licenses should be taken away.
Oh yeah, here’s why I feel justified in my anger with these “too smart” social justice warriors.
Another group of medical minds. I dare say a more principled and objective group. They think the approach of the aforementioned medical organizations is way off base.
The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) condemns gender affirming care for children.
Here’s an 8 point statement the association released on gender affirming care for kids:
Physicians and medical professionals should refuse to be mandated or coerced to participate in procedures to which they have ethical or scientific objections or which they believe would harm a patient.
Reproduction requires a male gamete (sperm), which can only be produced by a person of XY genotype, and a female gamete (egg), which can only be produced by a person of XX genotype. Primordial germ cells are present at birth.
Biological sex is determined at conception by genotype and apart from rare anomalies, which result in ambiguous genitalia, sex is correctly identified at birth—and is indeed obvious.
The construct of gender fluidity in the current cultural discourse is controversial.
Through medical, surgical, and other interventions, it is possible to change the physical appearance of one’s body. Changing physical appearance does not change biological sex.
There has been an explosive increase in persons who identify with the construct of gender different from sex, at an age where identity is easily malleable and brain development is not fully concluded.
Conflicting motivations have led to a growing industry dedicated to providing “gender-affirming” procedures that are generally irreversible and have a high probability of causing sterilization. These include puberty “blockers,” sex hormones, and surgery, such as castration, penectomy, and mastectomy. They commit a patient to a lifelong need for medical, surgical, and psychological care.
“Gender-affirming care” in minors is medically and ethically contraindicated because of a lack of informed consent. There are inherently unknown and unknowable long-term risks, and the consequences of removing normal, healthy organs are irreversible.
Sadly, you can’t trust your kids with any adult you don’t know well anymore. Teachers, doctors, guidance counselors, psychologists….they are usurping parental rights at every turn, with help from the Democratic party.
Recently, the Democrats in DC lost their minds when Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) signed a parent’s bill of rights. Chuck Schumer (and other) mocked it saying it would never get through the Democrat controlled (barely) Senate.
This should tell you everything you need to know about the left. They want the state to have jurisdiction over your kids to the extent that they come before you do in the pecking order of rearing them.
This is the government that fails at everything they control. Look no further than Covid 19 and the lockdowns, vaccine mandates and business closures. We won’t recover form that malpractice in our lifetimes. Yet, they want more power and control. Do you see a theme here?
With trans affirming radicals in high places in the U.S. Government, including the President himself, it’s hard to know if or when this trend will come to an end.
Sadly, any push back against the groomers is met with anger, threats and cries of “hate speech.” This is another tactic of the groomers and groomees….use rage to shut the other side up because only YOU (the activist) are allowed to say whatever you want. The other side must be silenced.
Here’s a case in point.
I talked with my friend, Matt Vadum who covers SCOTUS for The Epoch Times. His story regards the suppression of both free speech and freedom of religion in regards to licensed family counselor, Brian Tingley, in Washington State.
According to Vadum’s article:
Counselor Brian Tingley, who is a practicing Christian, says the state’s counseling censorship law violates his freedom of speech and infringes on his religious faith and that of his clients by prohibiting certain private client-counselor conversations regarding sexual orientation and gender identity that are disfavored by the state government, while allowing and encouraging conversations the government favors. Even the professionals can’t seem to get through the noise thanks to, in large part, corporate propaganda media.
Here’s my interview on the topic with Matt Vadum:
Clearly, Washington could use some non-Marxist governance and I spoke with just the man to lead the way this past week. Jay Inslee is disaster as this state becomes more and more of a totalitarian hellhole. Semi Bird is running next year and I can’t think of a better man to get the nod.
In 2022, the New York Post offered this;
A transgender psychologist who has helped hundreds of teens transition has warned that it has “gone too far” — and fears many are making life-changing decisions because it’s “trendy” and pushed on social media. Erica Anderson, 71 — who is transgender herself — told the Los Angeles Times that she is horrified that even 13-year-old kids are now getting hormone treatment without even meeting with psychologists. “I think it’s gone too far,” said Anderson, who until recently led the US professional society at the forefront of transgender care.
So now, in 2023, the push for affirmation of youth and the acceptance of the transgender lifestyle is in the face of everyone just trying to live their lives and raise their families…and that includes, I believe, most in the LGBTQI++ community…but the activists are not going to give it a rest anytime soon.
From drag queen story hour to drag shows for kids to young children themselves doing drag shows for perverted adults, it’s being pushed out there with the hopes of “normalizing” what will NEVER be normal.
Here’s a recent video of a 13-year-old boy performing for grown men, you seem to enjoy it as they shoot cell phone video of the performance.
Mainstream media celebrates these types of shows and is, with little doubt, contributing to the decline of American values and decency.
You may remember a few years back when Good Morning America celebrated the “bravery” of an 11-year-old drag queen. If not, take a look.
You can be sure you’ll never see Good Morning America, Today or any other mainstream show feature one of the many people who have regretted their transition and, out of despair and desperation, have turned to God, become a born again Christian and are now trying their hardest to live a happy life. That’s not as cool and lacks the sex appeal factor. Plus, doing that would get them canceled, without a doubt.
You may wonder why so many parents allow this to happen to the children who are SUPPOSED to be under their guardianship.
There are a few reasons.
First, some parents. themselves, are activists and may actually rear their kids to believe they are not actually the gender they were born. This makes sense if you consider many new parents are now choosing “gender neutral” on birth certificates.
Secondly, the state, with the help of “professionals,” are more often than ever claiming eminent domain over children if their parents refuse to affirm their gender choice.
Take the horrible story of Abby Martinez of California, whose daughter, Yaeli, ended up taking her own life after she was taken away by the state.
According to the Washington Examiner:
Yaeli ran away from home, which caused county child welfare workers to visit Martinez's home. They decided to bring a court petition against Martinez, who said she had a loving home with four children raised to love God. “The county told me that my daughter would be better off out of the house,” she said. “I tried my best to get her back, going to court every month.” A judge decided that Martinez could see her daughter one hour a week, and social workers ordered her not to mention God during those visits.
Here’s Abby’s heart wrenching story.
Finally, it’s the lie that, if you don’t affirm your child, you will likely lose them to suicide. According to a piece from The Federalist:
Doctors and therapists often ask parents who object to gender affirmation, “Would you rather have a dead son or a loving daughter?” As one interviewee points out, this rhetoric is emotional blackmail. It is also deeply misguided. In actuality, the suicide risk is exponentially higher for trans people for seven to ten years following surgery – the highest, in fact, of any known group in recorded history. If parents are seeking to improve the mental health of their children, it appears to be imperative that they actively avoid gender transition surgery.
Tellingly, the title of the article is, “‘Gender Affirmation’ For Minors Is Child Abuse, Not Treatment.”
It’s time to confront evil head on. I will not back down nor will I shy away.
As my late friend, Dick Dunn, told me as he was dying from cancer: “Never give up, never give in.”
I won’t….I promise.
