Frightening Things You Don't Hear About Gender Dysphoria
Barbwire ^ | 11 December 2017 | Laurie Higgins

“Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.” ~ Voltaire

School administrators and board members terrified of expensive lawsuits are capitulating to the demands of gender confused adolescents. Parents are capitulating to the disordered thinking of their children, terrified that if they don’t, their children will commit suicide. Their fears are stoked by a deeply flawed study that is grossly misunderstood. Academia, the arts, and the professional medical and mental health communities are controlled by Leftists who affirm the nonsensical “trans” ideology. And the mainstream press—not known for deep thinking—swallows and regurgitates any Leftist nonsense that comes oozing or surging down the polluted pike. That’s why you’ll hear even FOX News pundits using incorrect pronouns when referring to those who pretend they are the sex they are not and never can be.

So here’s some information you won’t likely learn from the press, school administrators, or board members:

Great quote by Voltaire. Why isn't that the new motto of the Republican conservatives?

Note number 3 about the explosion of child "identification" as "transgender."

4.) The medical community admits it has no idea whether pathologizing healthy sexual development and setting children and teens on a path of lifetime risky medical treatments will help them, and they have no idea if these children will grow up to regret their “transitions.”

If the "medical community" says it has no idea, it is lying. All available evidence points to significant harm from the embrace of trans-ism.

Some of the medical community has an idea. Johns Hopkins, which pioneered so-called sex reassignment surgery now refuses to perform such surgery.

Up is down, right is wrong, man is woman, white is black, good is evil.
Upside-down times we live in. Very bitter fruits are coming to our offspring.
Liberalism/progressivism is indeed a mental illness. Or evilness. Take your pick.

That’s my point. If you and I know about this, then the rest of the “medical community” has their hands over their eyes and is yelling, “La la la la can’t hear you la la la.”

Jeez what a freakin’ mess liberals make. Mental illness is mental illness. What it needs is treatment, not mollycoddling...

“...Parents are capitulating to the disordered thinking of their children, terrified that if they don’t, their children will commit suicide....”

This testifies to the parental malfeasance and weak parenting that exists today. Always capitulating to the “easy way out” of this crap brought on by academic indoctrination downplaying or deliberately ignoring REALITY IN LIFE.

A very sick situation.

The vast majority of children who identify as the opposite sex at one point self-rectify.
But liberals are saying “quick, lock it in, give them permanent health effects for this transient delusion” ... instead of treating the mental illness to make the mind align with the body.

There are several states in the U.S. and all of Canada that say if you don’t go along with a transgender diagnosis, you lose custody of the child.
Social workers side with the “I’m the opposite sex” just as they defend the “I was molested, now I want to have sex with the same sex” cases and consider it criminal to try to get counseling to rectify the mentally ill thought patterns.

“...There are several states in the U.S. and all of Canada that say if you don’t go along with a transgender diagnosis, you lose custody of the child....”

This is a classic, textbook example of how the radical liberal left is FORCING THEIR WILL AND WANTS upon the general public. The fact that so many people just cater to, and go along with this kind of oppression and social engineering is frightening...

It's easier for you to accept what you are than to have everybody else accept what you are not.

There should be alterations made on perfectly healthy genitalia.
Not before age 25 at least and the patient must pay for it.
The exception is when there is a bona fide deformity that can, and should, be surgically corrected.

I had the exact same thought. Republican conservatives need to stop their failed strategy of just trying to scoot down the slippery slope a little slower than the liberal dems speed-skating down it, and start fighting back.

There has always been weak parenting around. They just have more destructive fodder to feed on today.
