A roundup of news and commentary from the gender wars.
Canada continues to be one of the worst nations in the world when it comes to the medical experiment being performed on thousands of gender dysphoric children. Whistleblowers are noting that children are being rushed into transition. From the National Post:
Mary’s troubled daughter had talked about her changing sexual identity before, but when she announced at age 16 that she was a transgender boy, it seemed to come out of the blue. Even so, a doctor later wrote her a prescription for testosterone after a pair of 15-minute appointments, the mother says. Within months, the teenager had also had a double mastectomy. She was now a trans male.
But Mary says her child’s long-standing depression and anxiety only worsened. And last year the young woman made a stunning admission to her mother: even as she was being wheeled into the operating room to have her breasts removed, she was having doubts about her decision.
Now the 21-year-old is “detransitioning,” reverting to her original female identity. And Mary is part of a nascent movement calling for brakes to be placed on a health-care system geared to affirming a young person’s transgender feelings with drugs and surgery, allegedly in some instances after little assessment of other psychological issues.
While other nations—the UK, Sweden, Finland, even Australia—are stepping back from the so-called “affirmative model,” Canada is plunging forward. The new so-called “conversion therapy ban,” which could ban conversations encouraging children not to transition, was passed unanimously through the House of Commons last week by a Conservative Party motion. Girls like Mary’s are now on their own—and suffering the consequences.
The Canadian government has totally bought in. Consider, for example, the horrific Orwellian babble being used to describe genital mutilation for gender dysphoric children—all of which, by the way, is paid for by your tax dollars.
All of this is made more sinister by the reality of social affirmation and peer pressure that is taking place in schools. The UK publication The Critic has consistently been excellent in exposing the trans agenda, and their latest investigation is sickening:
Many people who endured bullying at school will remember the teacher who provided words of comfort and wisdom after they’d been taunted — for being overweight, perhaps, or ginger, or tall, or any of the other characteristics about which children can be so cruel. “Don’t listen to them,” the teacher would say, “they only do it because you’re different. You’re perfect just the way you are.”
Times have changed. Today’s teachers are not only eschewing their role as comforters-in-chief; they are just as likely to be complicit in this bullying.
Such an extraordinary claim requires compelling evidence. Sadly, we have it by the bucketful. Since we founded Our Duty in 2018, we have gathered testimony from parents who are struggling with children who are determined to go down a pathway that ends in mutilation, sterilisation, loss of sexual function and life-long regret. They reveal how children are being encouraged to embrace a transgender identity by other pupils, with the connivance of teachers and often, deliberately, without the knowledge of their parents.
Autistic children are especially vulnerable to transgender ideology
Parents of school-age children may already suspect that something is rotten in the state of our Relationships and Sex Education (RSE); they might baulk when their kids come home parroting unscientific dogma, including the denial of biological sex and the existence of infinite gender identities. But many will have no idea how completely their schools have been captured by trans lobby groups, how invested teachers are in this ideology, and what this means for their children. That’s why it’s so important that we listen to the whistleblowers.
First, there is the mother of a boy with autism, ADHD, epilepsy, mental health problems (including suicidal ideation) and learning difficulties, who was encouraged by girls at his school to wear a skirt.
[The girls] brought skirts in for him to wear and encouraged him to go into the toilet and change into it. When he came out, they cheered…they also gave him tights to wear. My son then went into his maths intervention where the teacher also cheered him. The school contacted us and asked us to write a letter saying why we did not want our son to wear a skirt for school; when we raised our concerns about the girls encouraging him, the school responded that they were merely being supportive. The girls then encouraged my son to wear a dress to the prom, and invited him over to their place to get ready. The school contacted me to say they have offered to fund a dress for him. I really did not know what to say to them at that point; I was dumbfounded.
This is a classic example of social affirmation, an incredibly powerful psychological intervention centred on accepting a child’s new identity, name, and pronouns. The goal is to cement the sense that they are “born in the wrong body” and that they require medical intervention to be happy; it is a foreclosure which makes further exploration (and a rowing back from the pathway of puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones and surgery) almost impossible.
Please read the whole thing. There are children waking up with penises, breasts, and uteruses removed—and no way to go back. We are doing this. We will reap the whirlwind.
To mainstream this garbage, we have articles like this one, titled “This Trans Dad’s Home Birth Photos Beautifully Capture The Raw Emotion Of Labor”:
Halfway through his fourth pregnancy, Yuval Topper-Erez decided to treat himself to something he’d always loved: birth photography. But while he initially planned to keep the images strictly between himself and his family, the England-based transgender dad has made his stunning home birth photos public and they’re already making an impact.
I don’t advise you to look at the pictures. As I’ve written before, the torrent of “pregnant man” human interest stories are written explicitly to mainstream this nonsense. The media is attempting to override the common sense of readers and viewers in order to persuade them that this is all normal.
Unfortunately, there will be more updates soon.
