I Was America’s First ‘Nonbinary’ Person. It Was All a Sham.
The Daily Signal ^ | March 10, 2019 | Jamie Shupe

Posted on 01/01/2020 7:07:18 PM PST by Tolerance Sucks Rocks

Four years ago, I wrote about my decision to live as a woman in The New York Times, writing that I had wanted to live “authentically as the woman that I have always been,” and had “effectively traded my white male privilege to become one of America’s most hated minorities.”

Three years ago, I decided that I was neither male nor female, but nonbinary—and made headlines after an Oregon judge agreed to let me identify as a third sex, not male or female.

Now, I want to live again as the man that I am.

I’m one of the lucky ones. Despite participating in medical transgenderism for six years, my body is still intact. Most people who desist from transgender identities after gender changes can’t say the same.

But that’s not to say I got off scot-free. My psyche is eternally scarred, and I’ve got a host of health issues from the grand medical experiment.

Here’s how things began.

After convincing myself that I was a woman during a severe mental health crisis, I visited a licensed nurse practitioner in early 2013 and asked for a hormone prescription. “If you don’t give me the drugs, I’ll buy them off the internet,” I threatened.

Although she’d never met me before, the nurse phoned in a prescription for 2 mg of oral estrogen and 200 mg of Spironolactone that very same day.

The nurse practitioner ignored that I have chronic post-traumatic stress disorder, having previously served in the military for almost 18 years. All of my doctors agree on that. Others believe that I have bipolar disorder and possibly borderline personality disorder.

I should have been stopped, but out-of-control, transgender activism had made the nurse practitioner too scared to say no.

The entire transgender fad is mostly a bill of goods.

Mental health issues not being treated due to militant political pressure.

“I should have been stopped, but out-of-control, transgender activism had made the nurse practitioner too scared to say no...”

Too late. You declare you a non binary, or a woman, or whatever, you can’t come back to being a man. That deals gone forever.

Good luck with that idea. He wants to be himself now, TRULY himself, and I support that.

I read his article yesterday. Good for him that he finally realized that nothing would really change, even after all the hormones, surgery and acting.

I was also struck that no where in his detailed article did he mention how devastating and destructive all this ‘finding himself’ must have been to his wife and child.
Even now, it is his inner spirit and ego that are his first priority, not the well being of his wife or child.
So, in this way, he didn’t really change at all.

His body is intact. Sure, taking the hormones has probably done some damage, but at least he has all of his parts.

Not all “transgenders” can say that. Those who have themselves mutilated are still men—just mutilated men.

I have a friend whose daughter decided she was a man several years ago when she was 12. Same type of nonsense. She was a mental case, but because of all this absolute trans-gender BS... tens of thousands of dollars have been wasted on medical treatment. In actuality the girl was a pawn in a custody battle. My friend got custody of the two kids because his ex-wife behaved erratically. She promoted this nonsense to get the girl back.

“I do not have any disorders of sexual development. All of my sexual confusion was in my head. I should have been treated. Instead, at every step, doctors, judges, and advocacy groups indulged my fiction.”

Exactly. The whole transgender movement is nothing but an attack on God’s design.

Exactly. These people are being denied the mental health treatment they need. The medical community, scared of incurring the wrath of the tranny lobby, is failing them.

You’re just an exhibitionist and a drama queen.

So you can’t be in crisis anymore, mental health doesn’t matter to you?

I really don’t think that’s the lesson here. I think the lesson is rooted in Christianity. Hate the sin not the sinner right? We can love and give words of encouragement while also working with them to suggest being transgendered isn’t everything the leftists are selling it as.

Agreed, I think we are have a crisis of self in society now, we might pay lip service through our 10% tiding, or some sort of volunteering, but we are a very selfish and self gratifying society and have forgot a very significant life lesson, happiness comes from serving others, not from serving one’s self.

He said he was mentally ill and has borderline personality disorder, he probably also has some narcisitic traits and yes it has been all about him.

Most mental illness is all about the person whom it affects.

He does mention “I’m not the victim here. My wife, daughter, and the American taxpayers are—they are the real victims.”
