Resources Needed for Desisters and Detransitioners in Schools
I want to send him an ice cream cone and confetti! What a brave kid. He will be stronger and more secure in himself as an adult knowing he came to this position without the adulation of the crowd and loves himself as he is. When it is safe, he will resume his chosen identity. I remember that days after graduating it was like a spell was broken and I wondered why I gave a fig what these people thought about me. It was so liberating!
I was just made aware of this organization: https://www.detransawareness.org/
It represents the first public manifestation of the wave that has been building for some time. They are planning a Detrans Awareness Day for March 21, 2022. Before long, the number of detransitioners will overwhelm the campaign to keep them invisible.
Great article. I think we may find many young women are trapped in this
This story is very similar to my son who has also desisted after a year of social transition. He had some time off school and desisted in that time. He has now started a new school year as a boy and happily so. He is getting some backlash from old friends and he has had to move classes due to an overly woke teacher pushing the gender ideology. Even though he doesn't use his instagram anymore, he changed his name there and most kids have just started using his birth name again. My son is only 13yrs old and he has now made a new group of friends more like him and not caught up in the gender ideology.
Not including the D is ignoring the "Lived Experience of so many" as they say.
LGBTADQ++. The A for Agender. We have to see a funny side to this horrible madness. We do not want to be driven insane ourselves. Teach our children that transitioning is not just a silly game. It has awful consequences.
A grandma I know of a trans ID'd girl regarding this alphabet soup "acceptance" which lacks the "D":
"Isn't this what usually happens when people try to leave cults? Of course, naturally, the ones who are benefiting become nasty. Just another demonstration of their evil intent in the first place."
My belief is that there is no glamour, no politics/money/big pharma behind "D's" hence the silence. The only reason(s) why this is up 4,000% is because of social media planted the seed in developing brains then special interest groups watered it until it blossomed like weeds throughout the world. It's the Perfect Storm. There is a very dark force out there trying to come between the family unit like never before and its has us in a death grip right now.
The problem is in the next few decades, who will be around to help these poor kids with mutilated bodies and drowning in hormones?? Not the teachers, not the medical community, not big Pharma who will somehow be able to claim immunity. Hopefully, we the loving parents will still be waiting. Schools indoctrinate this madness, the medical community stands staunchly behind it (ironically despite there is no scientific basis - but there sure is $$$$$$) and parents are vilified and pushed away for protecting their own child. Detransitioners should be screaming from the roof tops but they're out-shouted and out-shadowed by the same "accepting" people who once rallied for them! Our daughter came to us in 2017 - this beautiful girl, who is adopted, who developed very early, who hated her mature body, who is super smart, a self-proclaimed nerd, who is very opinionated, who is walking textbook for ASD, who likes boys somehow is still walking the path of uncertainty. My baby may be a lot of things but she is not "trans". In all honesty she has always had issues years before The Genderbread internet people spewed this ideology. Thank you Jesus that she says she will never alter her body because it is the one God gave her. Ultimately she knows we love and accept her regardless. We love her more than she'll ever know. If I had the chance to adopt a different child I never would. Despite this nightmare I would still choose her a thousand times over. We just pray every day for her and for all people in this struggle.
This is a very good point and I love the way you put it - that the missing letter in the LGBTQIA+ alphabet is the "D". This is not really inclusive, is it? Your post ought to be sent to every school in America. But, I wouldn't bother with the public teacher's unions or the National Association of Independent Schools ("NAIS"). They appear to have been taken over by the GI Cult.
The WSJ had an interesting Saturday article on the Woke Indoctrination Machine by the way: https://www.wsj.com/articles/inside-the-woke-indoctrination-machine-diversity-equity-inclusion-bipoc-schools-conference-11644613908?mod=opinion_lead_pos5
What a thought-provoking post. Of course, 'D' is the letter that dare not speak its name. For now. Thank you for writing this.
In my case, I'm not trans but only because i don't use a dress o what people think is an appropriate clothes for a girl, (to me is uncomfortable, tootight, I can hardly breathe and they have almost no pockets etc) and i cut my hair, since then in my school they've been calling me "sr" "him " "oh i though you were a boy" .-. My family do the same. It's really stressful to have every one around you telling you that you're not a girl, that you look like a boy or acting like a boy (that mean you're not a obedient and silent girl who never ever give her own opinion, who never speaks up o like sports). If i didn't find correct information maybe i would be a trans boy. Thank you always for this brave words. Thank you for your compromise with truth
Brilliant! This is the sort of post that changes my perspective - once reading this it seems completely obvious and I don’t know why I never thought of it this way. Same as Exulansic’s superb point that there is a clash with disability rights / age discrimination when people are punished for ‘misgendering’ when it’s their disability or age that means they are confused by trying to remember a stream of ever-changing pronouns, or cognitive dissonance Eg an ASD boy in Wales in 2020 was convicted for deliberately misgendering when a kinder interpretation was that he was confused.
This is amazing. Thank you.
I love the idea of adding a "D" to the LGBTQ! It seems like it could ease the way and they wouldn't be cast into the outgroup.
This is the key question in the gender-dysphoric debate.
So, my question is, does the boy in question know others who are also doing what he is doing, desisting? If so, the adage "safety in numbers" comes into play. Pick a day, say April 2, and call it "Gender-dysphria desistance day". Come out as normal.
Your son could strategically start by saying that instead of trans (and female) he identifies as agender and his pronouns are [whichever--he can pick, since it's a ruse anyway]. After two weeks, he can then say that he identifies as gender-fluid and at present, prefers "he/they", and wants to use his old name. He should cut his hair, that doesn't really mean anything to these people: you have men with beards saying that they are women, so really, short hair and a totally masculine appearance are not indicators of anything for the cult.
And of course, the school should, as you say, include desisters and detransitioners in its celebratory alphabet soup of gender identities and sexual diversity...
