"Inclusive" is a red flag. Always. There's no justification for it and it's clearly associated with harm.

What is the point of being "inclusive" with pathologies? Next up on the identities to "celebrate" are "minor-attracted" and eunuchs.

Abigaul Schrier's book" Irreversible Damage" a must read, especially on just this subject: Rapid Onset Gender Identity in groups of girls jumping on the bandwagon...

Trans by Helen Joyce shows the overall big picture and Detransition: Before During and After something like that by Max Robinson. These 3 books really are must reads.

It's indeed abnormal for such a high number of girls to think they are actually boys.

Expand full comment

My sense of girls insisting they are males is built on an illusion that the world will be a safer place; more respected and definately with increased status; in truth the opposite will be the reality with resulting damage beyond repair.

We must keep challenging this major issue of social and barefaced institutional abuse ----

I wish it was easier to verify this story. It seems plausible, though. The evidence that the rise of trans identities was caused by social influences, not just greater acceptance, is now quite strong, as I document in this article:

You're describing a current tragedy helped along by the American Academy of Pediatrics. I just attempted to post a review of Abigail Shrier's Irreversible Damage on Amazon, giving it five stars and pointing out that it could help parents and especially help with medical treatments a child is likely to regret. Amazon would not post the review, saying it violated "community standards."

What percentage of children who succumb to trans propaganda, are assigned whiteness in school and on social media? They seem to be the majority. Are they? Why is that?

Expand full comment

Someone's suggested these kids are made to feel so guilty about being white oppressors that they want to change something--can't change their skin color, so go for their sex.

Expand full comment

Dubious.

A high percentage of them are already diagnosed as mentally ill, many with more than one diagnosis and taking handfuls of pills every day. And those are just the ones severe enough to have been inducted into psychiatric care. Eating disorders, autism, cutting, clinical depression. Quick, cut her breasts off.

No child should be treated for "gender dysphoria" when already suffering from comorbidities; the presumption is that the "dysphoria" is the underlying cause instead of a symptom.

I think we're in agreement here. Their delusions take the form of believing they can change their sex and feel better. I'm just saying one (unfortunate) source of that is guilt about their racial identity. The real causes--the autism, depression--and symptoms--cutting, sometimes anorexia, sometimes bulimia, sometimes other strange behaviors--are not being addressed. "Affirmation" is obviously the wrong approach. You might find Az Hakeem worth listening to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j1-nURL4mlg&t=413s

There are several interviews with him on his book, DeTrans--this one is short, though.

When I was coming out the equivalent was to briefly claim bisexuality. Being bi was briefly fashionable, but most of us just went directly to identifying as gay.

Expand full comment

Yeah, but the difference is: if your child is gay, that's nature taking its course. Bisexuality also need involve no medical interventions, no hormones and no surgeries. Trans is different.

Expand full comment

I makes total sense too. They practically demonize the white identity with the use of SEL, and DEI in those classrooms. Like, its baked right into the curriculum. There is likely a few that might self identify as trans to escape that persecution from not only their peers, but the school in general. Poor kids being guilted into it because of the "anti-racism" nonsense

Expand full comment

Yes, well, let's hope Kendi and DiAngelo continue to be discredited. There seems to be some movement toward getting rid of DEI, but in the U.S. (not in Europe) trans seems only to be increasing. Adults may do what they wish, but preventing a child from going through puberty is a terrible thing to do.

Expand full comment

We can't allow it to continue as an on demand procedure for adults except for clear cases of ambiguity and even then it shouldn't be available or suggested to children because informed consent isn't possible. In adults however; it self selects for the mentally ill who cannot give informed consent as it's delusion telling them their body is wrong or they're using it as a proxy to self harm. Delusions come and go, the body remains as long as we live.

I try to imagine the outrage if children were being offered surgery to change their skin color, as part of "race affirming care". It would indeed be outrageous. How ia this any less?

Expand full comment

Hang on, why does it matter that someone goes on hormones “ when they’re too young to have had sex”? You seem awfully vague about that detail

Expand full comment

Lupron--a puberty blocker--stops puberty completely. Then the child goes on cross-sex hormones--that is, a a girl who says she's a man gets testosterone. When these medical treatments are given before puberty or on the cusp of it, the child remains anorgasmic and infertile. Look up Jazz Jennings' surgery on YouTube. One prominent example, but there are plenty of others.

I'm not the author, but I think it matters a lot. A pubescent or pre-pubescent aged child cannot possibly yet understand their developing body or their sexuality, and should not be making decisions that will damage either of them.

Where I live, a northern suburb of Atlanta, at the children’s park a few years ago a decorative wall was built with the very large engraving , something like this: “let the child be the scriptwriter, actor and author of their life”. I was dismayed then wondering what’s up with that? Since when do kids have the knowledge & maturity and life experience to make life altering decisions for themselves? Its mind blowing.

"A quarter of the girls in my daughter’s class identify as transgender. Seven out of 28."

--- Specifically trans or just LGBTQ+ in general? If it's the later you've nothing to worry about. Kids are identifying as "non-binary" because they feel they don't fit into the stereotypes associated with their sex. It doesn't mean they are going to ask for cross-sex hormones or surgery. ACE (asexual) is also included in the LGBTQ+ in which case if your kid identifies as that, you can thank your lucky stars.

One concern: the ones who "socially transition" to another sex often do go on to medical treatments--I've forgotten the statistic but it is high. So if an eleven-year-old is told she might be trans if she's uncomfortable with her body--yikes. I would definitely have gone along with this notion at age eleven! Thank goodness I didn't have the option.

75-85% of the kids will come out Lesbian/ Gay if just left alone, by 18 years old or so...but if put on puberty blockers 98% WILL OPT TO TRANS!! Well known stats repeated by Docs in several different first world countries.

Do p*ss off apologist for the medical industrial complex destroying our children. They would grow out of it if left alone but they aren't are they?

Prior to 2010 or so, roughly 1 in 20k to 1 in 40k adults self-identified as trans. We've seen an explosion in the self-identified trans label, but mostly limited to young people.

Similarly, when it became more socially acceptable to be gay, we saw an explosion in self-identified gay folks, but critically - we saw this across all age groups.

Now, the effect was more pronounced in younger people, but it wasn't nearly as drastically skewed as it is today with trans identification.

There are I think genuine young trans people who are struggling but they are a small minority of self-identified trans folks.

Simply put, because we venerate trans people, young people see this and want in on the action. It is a quick way to upper middle class status for adolescents. Combine this fact with the fact that adolescents are in their primary identity formation years, and you have a recipe for disaster.

Nothing about this suggests that trans kids don't exist - only that we can't easily differentiate the truly trans kids from the rest who simply want a hip label for themselves, like a pair of fashionable jeans. Worse still, the clinics and advocates don't seem to understand this problem, or are minimizing it. This will be the end of the trans movement in the coming years. In another 4 years or so, the first young kids to transition will be in their early and mid twenties, and there will be a reckoning.

Shameless self promotion alert - I wrote a post about some of the very poor arguments made in favor of liberalizing child transition rules: https://nothingdoing.substack.com/p/good-intentions-and-bad-arguments

It's a social contagion, but unlike fads of yesteryear, this one is engineered by adults, phony experts, at the heights of society, including US Govt. (We could call it a "government-engineered health crisis.") The cult-like elements mean it's a political religion: all ideologies like this have distinct religious overtones (punishment of heresy, shunning, 'creedal ferocity') but include pseudo-science: ideas/theories that cannot ever be proven.

After all, how does one prove a kid was born into the wrong body? How does one prove a kid is "right" when they say they want to be the opposite sex? Does it show up on an X-Ray? An MRI? A CT Scan? A PET scan? Via exploratory surgery? A blood test? Of course not.

In fact, childhood and adolescence is known to be a period where kids have ambiguous and contradictory feelings about these things, which resolve themselves in 99% of the population.

--Like all cults, this one splinters relationships by inserting doubt. ("Did your mom say you're a girl?" Did your dad say you're a boy? Maybe that's not true.")

--Like all predators, these people seek to drive a wedge between children and their parents. ("Let's keep secrets - Mom and Dad don't need to know!").

--Like all cults, this one severs family relationships. ("We're your real family, forget about mom and dad.")

"Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits."- Matthew 7:15-20

Political religions are the paving stones to totalitarian regimes.

Imo, this ideology is being pushed because it breaks up the nuclear family. In other words, it's a feature, not a bug. The nuclear family (and extended family) presents the most formidable defense against evil and totalitarianism. Breaking it into bits and atomizing it = breaking the potential to resist something not yet revealed.

I'm not suggesting a conspiracy theory is at work. I'm suggesting there's a real, spiritual evil lurking and spreading through the subterranean conduits of society. Some are carriers. Some are resisters and immune.

Think: "Invasion of the Body Snatchers." And grab that Bible and start reading + praying. (Try the Gospel of Mark or Luke; short + easy to read.)

If only it were true that the nuclear family is necessarily a formidable defense against evil and totalitarianism; sometime it is the very seat of evil and totalitarianism!

In the nuclear family I was beaten black and blue by my husband; in the nuclear family my friend was raped by her father when she was 13. If your view of it was accurate, domestic violence refuges would be empty and all the social workers would be out of work!

The nuclear family is not *necessarily* a formidable defense, but, in my opinion, is designed to be such and is when healthy.

Evil individuals may overthrow that design though, just as they may overthrow the design of good government.

In other words, evil springs not from the family or from government per se, but from individuals.

My deepest condolences on the evil that you and your friend suffered.

Yes, doctors, schools & the Gov. are all in bed together, so to speak. The LGB alphabet people seem to wield enormous power, their evil stretches far and wide, however their main goal has been focused on getting children through the mass indoctrination process.

As far as the kids go, they are being taught these lies as fact by the education system, the 'educators' are fearful of the Gov. & of course the doctors are in it for the money. It's a vicious cycle.

The kids are being lied to & are too young to understand the far-reaching medical consequences of the evil medical interventions, creating a dependence on medical problems for the rest of their lives. The world is going crazy, the poor kids are the innocent lives being wrecked.

In my mother's day the circus highlighted freaks like the "bearded lady" for entertainment. Now, what we are witnessing is a growing number of future "bearded ladies" is it simply mind-blowing.

The pure evil of this insanity has to stop, we can only watch & wait, hopefully sooner than later. Many are fighting the good fight, hopefully things turn around before more young lives are offered up to spiritually deceiving rainbow gods.

It is important to remember that body dysmorphia, including issues such as anorexia and bulimia, are considered forms of mental illness, and are treated medically as such. However, GD, because of the sexual component, has been claimed by the LGB crowd as their own and thus, cannot be a mental problem - according to them.

However, over 80% of children with GD experience suicidal ideation, and over 40% attempt suicide. Many are on the autism spectrum. Other mental issues plague this group as well. These are not mentally healthy children.

Let's also not forget that homosexuality was also considered a mental illness not that long ago, until the gay lobby got the definition in the DMS IV changed.

Fact - gay people, like transgenders, have a much higher incidence of mental illness than the average population. They like to claim it's due to society's non-acceptance of them, but that excuse is long, long gone. On top of that, these issues of mental illness are found in European societies that have long been accepting of homosexuality, such as the Netherlands.

We MUST force - since we can't talk sense to them, force will be required - the trans supporters to see sense. I'm not talking physical force, but electoral force, parental and citizen involvement, whatever it takes to keep these people away from our children.

All of this will take immense work by parents and citizens demanding that the entire trans issue be off limits in school, that all sexual politics of any sort be off limits in school. Parents' rights must be demanded, and where school boards are violating them, the boards must be taken to court.

When leftist politicians don't agree, they must be shown clearly that their decisions will cause them to be defeated in their next election. If recall is possible in your state, it must be used to stop these people. They must FEAR the citizenry and the only way that happens is when we are constantly in their faces and threatening their positions.

Politically, parents need to get elected to these boards to protect the children from these perverts who wish to harm the children.

None of this will be easy and the activists will scream bloody murder. Fine, let them scream. You got through it when your two year old did it, you can do it again!

I hate to make what might sound like a petty grammarian point, but it is actually relevant to respecting people who agree with you. There are actually LGB groups that are gender-critical and who abhor the trans ideology movement. They are specifically "LGB", dropping the "T", because they argue that the "TQ" should not be linked with them. They argue that sexual attraction (LGB) and gender identity (TQ) are two entirely different things, and also that they are often directly opposed to one another. For example, some people are encouraged to be trans because of a fear of their being gay; in this case, T is seen, as the better of two evils: "well, at least they aren't gay." So my only point here is to recognize that there are LGB people who are on your side, and so try to avoid using "LGB" as a shorthand for the alphabet gang. In the UK a pro-trans group actually took the LGB Alliance to court, to have it banned as a charity due to its being a transphobic hate group. They argued successfully that they were pro LGB, and that that should not be in and of itself considered to be anti anything. But of course the trans activists want to destroy anything and anyone that does not actively and fervently love them.

THANK YOU. No more Christian homophobia. The trans movement rode in on our coattails but has NOTHING to do with sexual orientation. Its het men running the show who are crossdressers then calling themselves " Lesbians" , autogynophiles who have destroyed their marriages and families then come tromping into our communities and villify and bully us Lesbians if we say " NO!!" They will NEVER be Female or a Lesbian!! And some of those are conservative sexist hetro men who have been in positions of power, trying to silence us just like so many het men silence women in general, threatening us with physical and sexual violence or the power of the State or with corporations( jobs) if we dont shut up.

" Let Women.Seak" has included ALL WOMEN from radical Lesbians moutning the loss of our communities and EVERY Female only event or forum we have built, to more conservative women who worry about their daughters and sons transitioning at such young ages.

Don't count on many conservative politicians to do anything but lip service because at heart transgenderism is very conservative in many ways and statistically they've been behind nearly as much bad policy as "the left" in institutionalizing the synthetic sexes. There's been a few breakthroughs but that's the exception not the rule.
