The transgender insanity movement

1. I find this a confusing answer as the numerous posts you have made in this and other forums in support of trans rights have contained no exemptions or doubt on any aspect of what activists are demanding, as far as I can recall. 

2. Would you also suggest there are topics on legal rights, issues and societal belief which women should not comment on because the discussion should be exclusively male?

3. I don't accept the woke belief that every identity group must remain within its own 'silo' and speak only to its own issues and problems.

4. And if this is 'angertainment' it is only because of the fanaticism and extremism of the trans supporters, their determination to punish wrongthink, and their refusal to accept any compromise,

5. The rest of us are just ordinary people reacting to stupid ideas, unrealistic demands, and illogical positions.

 

1. I am a trans supporter but not by the stringent definition you have provided.  For example, I don't' believe you are a woman.

2. I suspect there are such issues, though I can't think of one at the moment.

3. I don't think that's a woke belief, that's just something I have learned from my study of 'publics' in political philosophy.  It has nothing to do with identity politics, but can be applied there.

4. In other words, it's not angertainment because I am justifiably angry ?  Well, no, that is why it's angertainment.

5. Hey, baby, you're talking to a guy who was actually diagnosed with TDS.

Do you realize that in countries where the transactivists have been most successful, like the UK, you could literally find police at your door for making that statement online?

First, you're assuming I'm angry simply because I comment negatively on this subject. It doesn't impact me. I am speaking from the view of fundamental justice, which I have always had a strong interest in. Second, many aspects of politics draw strong disapproval from many people. Should we not discuss any of them?

Shady and Infidel Dog diagnose almost everyone with that particular problem.

Barbara Kay talks about the Trudeau government's feminism - a brand which discounts the importance of womens rights and safety in favour of the faddishness of trans rights.

For a more off-putting example that speaks directly to this government’s irresponsibility regarding women’s rights, we have the following story — apparently not considered newsworthy enough by the CBC — reported by True North’s Lindsay Shepherd. It springs directly from 2017 rules established by the Trudeau government, decreeing that a self-identity gender claim alone — no reassignment surgery necessary as was previously required — would be sufficient for biologically male prison inmates to request transfer to a women’s prison.

Two weeks ago, about 75 women assembled at the Fraser Valley Institution for Women (FVI) in Abbotsford, B.C., to protest the policy. According to former inmate and prisoners’ rights advocate Heather Mason, representing Canadian Women’s Sex-Based Rights, of the 92 inmates housed at FVI, five are males who claim to identify as women. A former Correctional Service of Canada deputy commissioner for women told Mason in 2019 that 50 per cent of the males who request to be transferred to a female prison are sex offenders.

1. Yes 

2. I don't assume that

3. I have a prescription: my new age life coach has me listening to an hour of Al Gore a day.

An interesting piece on the trans issue. Though it focuses on Dave Chapelle's new show it contains some startling information I didn't know about. For example:

Across the West, people are being fired, targeted, prosecuted, even jailed, for stating biological facts. Children are being medicated with off-label drugs — “puberty blockers” — that can permanently sterilize them, arrest their neurological and mental development, and deprive them of the ability as adults to experience an orgasm.

I didn’t know the latter until I read the account by two leading transgender surgeons in medical treatment of children with gender dysphoria on Bari Weiss’s substack. These doctors are not marginal to the field. They are: “Dr. Marci Bowers, a world-renowned vaginoplasty specialist who operated on reality-television star Jazz Jennings; and Erica Anderson, a clinical psychologist at the University of California San Francisco’s Child and Adolescent Gender Clinic.”

They explain that when you halt puberty in a natal boy with a penis, and then switch the kid to female hormones, the genitals remain like a child’s, never develop the sensitivity of adolescence and there is therefore not enough penile material to invert into a created vagina. Surgeons sometimes have to take parts of the colon to patch it together.

Argus, I have the impression you are just concerned about transsexuals. Does this mean you are okay with cross dressers, drag Kings and drag queens? Is you concern confined to m2f or do you also have concerns with f2m?

I agree with you that minors are too young to go through SRS or even begin transitioning, but I was under the impression you can't begin the process of evaluation until you reach the age of majority. 

The idea that the need to transition is taken lightly by the person is preposterous. Besides the beatings and ostracism, there is the loss of family connections, unless the parents and siblings are on board. 

While gender dysphoria has nothing to do with homosexuality, the results of coming out are usually brutal. However, the result of not coming out does result in suicide too often.

1. I want to point out that the title of the thread has been made obsolete, since we are now engaging in a dialogue about what is ok and not ok with regards to the transition process.

2. Argus is quoting a trans doctor, Dr. Marci Bowers as an expert it seems.  And he's right - Bowers and Dr. Erica Anderson, having gone through the process themselves, point out that such decisions are serious.  That doesn't stop people in the LGBTQ movement from misunderstanding them, and attacking their advocates (eg. Dan Savage) for being transphobic.

I guess that means there IS a non-insane trans movement.  Myself, I believe in freedom.

My concern is primarily with children whose oh-so-fashionable idiot parents seize on momentary thoughts by the child that they might be the other gender and rather than dismiss it start encouraging it. The great majority of boys who act more feminine and girls who act masculine turn out to be gay, not transgender. Gender dysphoria is a rare thing.

My concern is also with women who see their private places intruded upon by perverts and wackos who are either pretending to be women or are just mentally ill. I'm willing to bet that 99.8% of people who are legitimately experiencing gender dysphoria wouldn't dream of going into a shower or locker room of the opposite sex and taking their clothes off. Not unless they've been surgically altered. This kind of thing is being pushed by frenzied progressive activists who see it as a political/ideological struggle and are basically sociopaths with no human empathy. Idiotic liberal/left governments eager to demonstrate how progressive they are have gone along with the activists with no thought whatever to consequences.
