Perplexed by Transgenderism

Beware the activists… they are coming for your freedom. For your freedom to speak and to think… your freedom to make up your own mind and to draw your own conclusions. And, of course, your freedom to consider the facts before deciding.

In Canada, the Canadian Broadcasting station, CBC was stopped from running a show about transgenderism. The show examined research showing that more than a majority of transgender children chose, upon arriving at adolescence, to revert to their biological gender. The activists were sorely offended, as rightly they should have been. If you are in the business of mutilating children on the basis of a belief—and transgenderism is nothing more than a belief without any grounding in biology—then you do not want to hear that you are conspiring to abuse children.

The Psypost blog reports the results of the research:

Despite coming from a variety of countries and from a variety of labs, using a variety of methods, all spanning four decades, every single study without exception has come to the identical conclusion.  This is not a matter of scientists disagreeing with one another over relative strengths and weaknesses across a set of conflicting reports.  The disagreement is not even some people advocating for one set of studies with other people advocating for different set of studies:  Rather, activists are rejecting the unanimous conclusion of every single study ever conducted on the question in favour of a conclusion supported by not one.

Some studies have the number at 60%. Others are at 75%. In truth, it does not really matter. Since transgenderism is a belief, local attitudes toward the transgendered must have an effect on whether children do or do not change their minds. If a six year old child is presented to his classmates as transgendered, if his parents happily embrace his delusional belief, it is less likely that he will change his mind. If parents treat his belief as a stage, it is more likely that he will change his mind.

Of course, the activists want children to be shot up with puberty blocking hormones… the better to ensure that they cannot change their minds. The activists also want females to undergo a double mastectomy. Again, as Camille Paglia noted, this is a sign of cultural collapse. Those who are performing these medical practices should be in jail.

We do not know why some children decide that they are transgender. In some cases, traumatic abuse must play a role. One eight year old girl in Australia was raped… and then decided that if she was a boy it would never happen again. 

Many more transgender children do not know what it means when they discover they have homoerotic tendencies. They are now given the choice between thinking that they might be gay and thinking that they were born in the wrong body. In that, case transgenderism is  stealth homophobia. 
Have a nice day!

If memory serves me correctly, at the top levels of management of The Communist Broadcasting Corporation we find lesbians. And given the CBC's "mandate" it would be inappropriate for them to show anything that contravenes our Charter of Human Rights. The CBC is the poison that is our national broadcasting state funded arm of progressive propaganda going into the well called our country.

CBC, BBC, A(ussie)BC, NPR... one company, same people. So diverse.

Give women the right to vote and this is what you get.

Joking? Extreme? No.

Anon, I've seen a lot of profoundly stupid things written online. I get that women make you feel uncomfortable, but yours is about the stupidest.

I think "someone" needs more therapy.

I don't remember if I've heard of PsyPost before but it seems to be a good site. Factual Reporting: VERY HIGH

And since I don't remember, either. I see the often snarky rationalwiki has a positive view of them.

The article author also has a wikibio, and he's certainly not biased against transgender as a category of study or for their sympathy.

The transgender activists and their enablers should be listening and worried.

"Perplexed by Transgenderism" well blind dates just got a lot more problematic.

When you blame all women for the ills that are suffered then there is no difference between you and the feminists who blame men for every evil that exists. Given the misandry that comes out of the mouths of, mostly blue state leftists, women it is sometimes hard not to transfer that to all women, but one needs to be careful because this leftist women do not represent the vast majority of women.
You discount and alienate a growing number of women who would be our friends, lovers and compatriots. Yes I know that it is hard to have worked your whole life and thought you were doing the right thing to have a bunch of screaming harridans constantly calling you names, but it does one good to remember why that was important to you and to most women. With them at our side we have a chance to marginalize much of this misandry and spend time enjoying each other. That is the way it was meant to be.

“Transgenderism” is the mark of intellectual Armageddon. Cultural suicide. It is self-evidently insane. This is the destruction you get when “tolerance” becomes the highest virtue. It gives rise to a morality of indiffrence.

IAC, the problem with tolerance is that it's only mandatory on one side while the other is as intolerant as it wants to be, and boy, does it WANT to be.

Indeed. I don’t know how they take themselves seriously. I don’t.
