    In an upcoming episode of the Australian "60 Minutes," a 12-year-old transgender boy details how he began the transition to a become a girl, only to change his mind two years later. As a young child, Patrick Mitchell had always wanted to be a girl, the Independent reported. "You wish you could just change everything about you, you just see any girl and you say, ‘I'd kill to be like that,'" Mitchell told interviewers. After speaking with doctors, Mitchell was diagnosed with gender dysphoria and began taking estrogen hormones in anticipation of a full transition. Mitchell grew out his hair...

    Recently, during a radio show on which I appeared as a guest, a caller posed a question I frequently get asked: “Do the administration of cross-gender hormones and genital surgery change a boy into a girl or a girl into a boy?” The answer is simple: biologically, not at all. Underneath all the cosmetic procedures, vocal training, and hair growth or hair removal lies a physical reality. Biologically, the person has not changed from a man into a woman or vice versa. Sex is an indelible fact of a person’s biology. Specifically, it describes one’s biological makeup with respect to...

    Personally, I've never been very impressed by the, "He's mentally" excuse. It's fairly consistently trotted out as a defense for ISIS terrorists who go on rampages in Europe. The French authorities have already announced that the driver who rammed his car into a pizzeria killing a little girl is not a terrorist, but suffers from mental illness. It's unknown as of this moment if he's Muslim, but a number of past Muslim terrorists have had a history of mental illness. But the media left is fairly selective in taking that into account.

    Breitbart:  Trump Defense Department Delays Obama’s Transgender Push in the Military.  “The Pentagon is working to delay the July 1 deadline to fully implement the Obama-initiated policy that one year ago lifted the ban on transgender individuals serving in the U.S. military.”  While the Pentagon directive to allow transgender men and women to join the military faces an indefinite delay this may be a good time to review just how America was ensnared with this Obama-era policy. The evidence is clear—the American Left succeeded in lobbying the American Psychiatric Association (APA) to eliminate some of the sexual identity disorders...

    A Transgender Children’s advocacy campaign titled “There are girls with penises and boys with vulvas!” which features imagery of naked children’s genitalia was censored by Facebook, the group complained. From El Pais: “A new public awareness campaign by the Basque advocacy group Chrysallis Euskal Herria, an association of families with transgender children, has hit the bus shelters and subway stations of the Basque Country and Navarre, in northern Spain. The campaign was funded by an anonymous donor from New York with Basque family roots, who donated €28,000 in exchange for assurances that his or her identity would remain under wraps,...

    Conservative Review ^ | 1/4/16 | Nate Madden
    A man calling himself “One Hand Jason” cut his right arm off because he felt like he was really disabled. His hand was more or less a “birth defect,” according to body modification website ModBlog. Jason trained in first aid for months and eventually severed his arm with a power tool. He also allowed people to think it was an accident for years. If you think this is wrong in any way, you’re a bigot — at least if you follow trans-logic to its natural conclusions.

    More than twice as many minors as expected have expressed a desire to change their gender this year. Since January, the Sexology Clinic in Copenhagen has offered hormone treatment to minors who feel like they were born in the wrong body. […] In Denmark, children as young as 12 can receive hormone suppressors, also known as puberty blockers, to stunt the growth of sexual organs and suppress developments like facial hair for boys and menstruation for girls. The effects of the blockers are reversible. Once minors reach the age of 16, they can receive full hormone treatment that is largely...

    Kris Gambardella didn’t know Feral Pines, one of the 36 people who died in the Dec. 2 Ghost Ship fire in Oakland. But when Pines, a 29-year-old transgender woman, was identified in official accounts by the male name she had been given at birth, Gambardella, who is a trans man, took it personally.

    The January 2017 issue of National Geographic features a major first in the the storied 128-year-old publication’s history — for the first time ever, the cover features a transgender individual. The special “Gender Revolution” issue features interviews with more than 80 transgender and gender-expansive youth across the globe. And most notable of all, the person who had the honor of being on the cover is 9-year-old transgender girl Avery Jackson of Kansas City, Mo. On the cover, Avery is quoted as saying, “The best thing about being a girl is, now I don’t have to pretend to be a boy.”

    This woman lived as a horse until the age of 13. Kate Havord would gallop around on all fours, wear a bridle and even eat grass. Between the ages of six and 13 the 47-year-old claims a ‘horse spirit’ entered her and eventually had 32 distinct horse personalities she could call upon at any given moment. Kate, who lives in Chippenham, Wilts, but grew up ‘roaming free’ on a farm in Scotland, would even try to eat her meals like a horse and fashioned some horse shoes from old cork. She said: ‘It was like the spirit of the horse...

    We’ve all had that co-worker at some point: superficially charming, supremely self-confident, but they’ll walk over anyone to get ahead and not feel a second’s remorse. Perhaps, after you were burned yet again, you half-joked that they must have a personality disorder. Today, experts believe it’s very possible that your colleague is a psychopath. Groundbreaking research presented at the Australian Psychology Society Congress in Melbourne this week reveals that one in five corporate workers may have the disorder — as many as in the prison population.

    A child psychiatrist is shedding light on the issue of transgenderism after a Texas mother asked a school to adopt a transgender bathroom policy to accommodate her kindergartener. EAGNews reports the Pearland Independent School District is refusing to comply with a mother's request this month to change its policy even though she says her transgender child is so distraught he prays to be taken to heaven. Psychiatrist Dr. Allan Josephson of the University of Louisville's Bingham Clinic says a child that age cannot grasp the concept of transgenderism. "To be this troubled to ask to be taken away or go...

    A man's craving for metal that led him to swallow 40 knives may sound bizarre, but such strange cravings can be symptoms of an eating disorder in which people ingest anything from dirt to talcum powder. The 42-year-old man in India said he had consumed the knives over a 2-month period, according to CNN. Some of the knives were folded up when the man ingested them, but some were unfolded, and extended to about 7 inches (18 centimeters) long. The man required a 5-hour operation to remove the knives. Because some of the knives were open, the man was bleeding...

    A lesbian couple featured in a BuzzFeed video on “gender non-conforming” parenting is trying to force their son to have a “queer” relationship with his gender despite his protests. “It’s really funny, because he’s like super into sports,” Michelle said. “Maybe he was like an Olympic athlete in his past life. He like, came with all of these sporting talents that are like visible at 17 months. That’s what Dashiell liked growing up. She easily relates to him on that level.” “I’m constantly like trying to queer my relationship with him and get him to wear tutus. He hates it....

    Social science can be so amusing. There is a bit of a contretemps over several recent articles that used datasets supposedly measuring the personality traits of liberals and conservatives which has resulted in several abashed corrections. The researchers used the data in an effort to show that personality traits are not the cause of political attitudes, but instead both are correlated with some other factor, most likely genetic. Interesting enough. This finding is not what is being corrected. ..... The original article, "Correlation not Causation: The Relationship between Personality Traits and Political Ideologies," in the American Journal of Political Science...

    Chaz Bono cannot find love because he “repels” women. Lovelorn Bono, 46, says he has been out on dates but just cannot connect with the opposite sex even though the transgender LGBT advocate was once a member of the opposite sex. The reality star son of Cher has been struggling to find a permanent partner after splitting with Jennifer Elia in 2011. “I seem to repel women that I am attracted to,” Bono told Confidenti@l at the Les Girls charity fund-raiser in Los Angeles.” He says, “I have been single for four years, which has been a great thing and...

  • Is being transgender a mental illness? WHO classification system suggests it is

    t is, perhaps, a peculiar fact involving an obscure medical text, but it is one that is now taking on outsized importance: The World Health Organization, in a compendium of conditions and diseases, lists being transgender under the umbrella of mental illness. The WHO publishes a standardized coding system used around the globe to classify medical conditions, for research purposes and health-care billing. In the document, being transgender is currently included in a section with kleptomania (the overwhelming impulse to steal), trichotillomania (the compulsion to pull out one’s own hair), and pedophilia (a preference for having sex with children).

    People with the condition are known to have any of a number of delusions that range from believing they have no organs, blood or body parts to insisting they are actually dead even though they are very much still breathing. In even more rare cases of what is also known as walking corpse syndrome, people with the condition consider themselves immortal. Although walking corpse syndrome is considered extremely rare, its exact prevalence is unknown. One Hong Kong study involving 349 psychogeriatric patients suggests the condition afflicts about 0.57 percent of the population. Another study conducted in Mexico in 2010, which...
