Because a movement that just wants to allow for trans people to ‘exist’ needs to call for the decapitation of females who believe in biological reality and their right to have boundaries in society.

There is nothing progressive about transgender ideology and therefore should be resisted by actual progressive and liberal elements of society.

Transactivism and transgender ideology in general have little respect for truth, morality, and established scientific/medical procedures and processes.  It is imperative to realize that this ideology at its very core is activist inspired and activist driven.  Their goal is to violently change how society works and there is never a bridge too far.  There is no institution or individual that is not worth the sacrifice if the overarching goal (destabilizing society enough for social revolution, so the margins can be moved to the centre) can be met.

So, yes its okay to push the demonstrably false narrative of affirm-or-suicide on parents.  If the familial bond can be severed, any damage inflicted is worth it because creating another destabilized transgender activist helps the cause along.  The gender-mill always requires more useful idiots to do its bidding.

Leor Sapir, a Fellow at the Manhattan Institute and researcher with a PhD in Political Science, calls it a “moral panic.”

“Sapir believes that the fear-mongering with inflated statistics about trans suicide rates has been essential to activists in achieving their goals in the political arena. “The affirm-or-suicide mantra has become the central strategy of contemporary transgender activism, and at times it would seem that activists have little else in their rhetorical arsenal,” said Sapir.

Sapir cites recent examples of the hyperbolic language used by purveyors of the affirm-or-suicide myth. Khiara Bridges told Senator Josh Hawley during a recent senate hearing that his “transphobic” line of questioning is why “one in five” transgender people attempt suicide.

Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg agreed with his husband Chasten, who said that the Florida Parental Rights in Education Act would “kill kids.” Maia Kobabe, author of the pornographic children’s book Gender Queer, said her book’s presence in libraries was “life-saving.” The term “life-saving” was also used by Assistant Secretary for Health and Human Services Rachel Levine regarding “gender affirming” interventions (i.e. sex changes) for kids. Levine is a trans-identified biological male.

“Despite the unwaveringly confident manner in which these claims are often asserted, there is no good evidence that failing to ‘affirm’ minors in their ‘gender identity’ will increase the likelihood of them committing suicide,” said Sapir. “Gender activists commonly argue that roughly four in ten transgender-identified youth (TIY) attempt suicide when not socially and medically ‘affirmed.’ Does the research bear this out? The simple answer is: no,” he adds.

Sapir found that surveys of suicidality in “trans” youth rely on self-report and do little to vet whether suicide was actually attempted. Studies that claim “trans” youth are at elevated risk of suicide are commonly compared with average mentally healthy teenagers, which is deeply misleading. When researchers compared “trans” youth with teens suffering from similar mental health problems, there was virtually no difference in suicide rates between the groups. “Trans” youth are not any more suicidal than teens with garden variety mental illness, which means that failing to “affirm” a child’s transgender identity does not drive suicidal behavior.

Teens with rapid onset gender dysphoria are “known to have very high rates of anxiety, depression, history of sexual trauma, anorexia, and eating disorders, all of which typically precede their gender-related distress,” said Sapir, who believes that gender distress may be a symptom of a troubled teenage girl, but it is incorrectly being treated as an underlying cause.

Sapir dives into the studies purporting to find that puberty blockers given to minors lead to reduced suicidality. The author of the studies, Jack Turban, a trans activist and psychiatry fellow at UCSF, has a long history of designing poor experiments and using bad methodology and biased samples to draw erroneous conclusions from data. “Turban sold his work to an eager media environment as having found strong evidence that puberty blockers are life-saving and medically necessary. And they gobbled it up uncritically,” said Sapir.

A Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT) is the gold standard for finding a causal relationship in science. No RCT has ever studied the effects of puberty blockers to treat gender dysphoria, which is why the FDA has never approved the use of Lupron and other puberty blockers for that purpose.

The claims activists make about puberty blockers being completely safe, effective, and a “pause button on puberty” rely entirely on referencing their approved on-label use which is to treat precocious puberty, not how they are increasingly being used off-label to treat gender dysphoria.

Sapir  breaks down a thoroughly debunked 2018 article by Jason Rafferty published in Pediatrics that claimed to find conclusive evidence that alternatives to gender-affirming care are “futile and harmful.”

“The article contains a shocking number of errors, omissions, and blatant mischaracterizations of the available research on pediatric gender transition, some of them so fundamental and egregious as to suggest bad faith in the authors,” said Sapir. He added that the article’s central conclusion is negated by its citations and flawed logic.

“The hyperbole surrounding the suicide threat is designed to get us to overlook the fundamentally experimental nature of pediatric gender medicine,” said Sapir. The point of suicide alarmism, he adds, is to get us to not weigh the pros and cons, benefits and risks.”

Clearly, transgender ideology has always been on the wrong side of science.  Hopefully soon it will be on the wrong side of history.

People are vulnerable when they are isolated and feel alone.  It is here many begin their journey into false acceptance and the ‘peace’ that belonging to cult brings.

“Technology has recently enabled destructive cults to arise that have no single authority figure. The authority is now “likes” and upvotes. No single person determines what is presented to the cult member as truth, it is the judgement of an anonymous, terminally online and unwell collective. The collective is enabled by social media.”

  The following is a paraphrase from Mike Rothschild’s book, “The Storm is Upon Us”, is about the Q-Anon distributed online cult.

 

“Cultic movements like QAnon substitute good feelings of like-minded strangers and the dopamine hits of hating the things those people hate for the ups and downs of personal relationships. They blast away the possibility of strenuous debate or disagreement with someone you love, preferring to create a world where those who don’t feel the same way are the enemy, meant to be either destroyed or cut off from contact.”

Seems about right. What does he have to report from the collected wisdom of cult experts? Here is advice from that chapter, paraphrased:

* Family and friends are mostly powerless to help until the person is ready to change

* Stay in touch if possible, but on your terms. You don’t have to pretend to share their new beliefs.

* Try to unplug them from the internet (i.e. get them away from the toxic sludge)

* Understand it won’t happen overnight – disengagement is a process

* Do not use outdated terms or concepts (like brainwashing, deprogramming, etc.)

* Do not mock or belittle

* Do not attempt to debate or debunk

* Do not give up if it matters to you

So we wait for the concussion to heal.

A close friend told us recently: this is just getting started. Your time horizon is going to be years.

Unfortunately, he is probably right.

The last paragraph is written by the parents who have lost their daughter to the transgender ideology cult.  It will be a long road back.

Finally.

 

One major media outlet has the courage to tackle the issue of males who ‘identify as women’ being allowed to go to female prison.  This of course is complete horseshite and a clear and present danger to the female prison population.  Imagine being locked up with a rapist and not being able to do a damn thing about it because of his protected gender-identity rights.  This is an absolute travesty of justice and a huge fuck-you to the female population of Canada.  The legislation – Canadian bill C-16 that is responsible for  this horror-clownshow needs to be repealed.

Barbara Kay writing in the National Post outlines the problems:

“Since June 2017, Canada’s Human Rights Act has prohibited discrimination against gender identity and gender expression. Correctional Service Canada’s policy had been to approve transfer to a women’s prison of a male inmate identifying as a woman only after bottom surgery. Shortly after Bill C-16 was passed, a simple affirmation of identity as a woman — no surgery, no hormones, just a pronoun change — became sufficient to request, and usually get, a transfer.

Gender identity has become a sacrosanct principle in Canada, with trans inclusivity privileged over sex-based security claims. Transwomen with a history of violent crime are not disqualified for transfer, even though we have no evidence that an individual’s psychopathology disappears with a change of gender identity. A serial pedophile; a serial sex offender; a contract killer; a child killer; a murderer: All have been approved for Canadian women’s prisons or halfway houses.”

  Anyone with more than two neurons to rub together can see the idiocy of prioritizing male gender feelings over the physical safety of women.

“Brad Hunter, a reporter with the Toronto Sun, has written up several of these cases. Steven “Sam” Mehlenbacher, for example, was convicted 16 times for bank robbery. Having escaped from more than one halfway house, Mehlenbacher was classified as a dangerous offender by the Toronto Police. After declaring a new gender identity, Mehlenbacher was moved to the Edmonton Institution for Women, and from there to Kitchener’s Grand Valley Institute in May 2019. Mehlenbacher was charged with sexual assault in March 2020.

The government’s rationale for its policy is that transwomen in men’s prisons are at increased risk for harm. At a 2019 Senate committee hearing on human rights related to imprisonment, Dr. Aaron Devor, Inaugural Chair in Transgender Studies at the University of Victoria, adduced statistics attesting to trans inmates’ high rates of “sexual victimization” (which may include anything from body-shaming insults to sexual assault). He spoke passionately of the need to accommodate transwomen in the prison system on the ground of their right to safety.

But Gearóid Ó Loingsigh, an international expert/consultant on prisons, questions the trend to trans exceptionalism in prison reforms. He argues there are many groups at elevated risk for harm in prison populations: gays, certain ethnic groups and (especially) those with mental or physical disabilities, none of whom may request transfer to women’s prisons. Loingsigh writes: “The trans are not the most vulnerable collective, not by a long shot, and … some predators self-identify as women with the aim of being transferred to women’s wings.

  Completely shocked that predatory males would ‘self-id’ as female to be place in the female prison system.  Your prey is locked up with you, with no escape and no recourse…

“Indeed, the U.K. Ministry of Justice has acknowledged that since 2010, seven out of the 124 sexual assaults against females in custody — or 5.6 per cent — have been perpetrated by transwomen, who account for about one per cent of the prison population.

Requests for transfers to women prisons are escalating in the U.K. and the U.S. The L.A. Times reported last week that the California prison system has received 261 applications for transfer since Jan. 1 from transgender and non-binary inmates. Inmates at Central California Women’s Facility told the Times that staff had warned them of potential sexual violence from trans imposters.

Clearly a certain percentage of transfers are gaming the system. Even trans advocate Aaron Devor admitted in his senate testimony, “(T)here are people who will take advantage of the system and show up and say … I’ll just claim I’m a woman.’” Consequently, we now have an unfair prison situation in which both transmen and transwomen are housed with women for protection from violent men, their right to security trumping the right to security of the women for whom these prisons exist.”

We have an election coming up soon.  When the Pols come begging for your vote see what there point of view is about putting males in the female prison system.  See if they will support the idea that female safety is more important than male gender feelings.  If the answer is in the negative, tell them you are not voting for them until they can stand up and protect half of the members of Canadian society.
