On the Most Likely Mode of Discreditation for TransGenderism Ideology

Many of you might have noticed, over the past five years, that not a day goes by without some mainstream media outlet publishing a piece or two about how biological gender is passé and becoming transgender is somehow the hippest, coolest or bravest thing to do. They also seem to promote the viewpoint that becoming transgender somehow results in people becoming happy and mysteriously solving many of their problems. Oddly enough, these same ivy-league anointed presstitutes are still amused by the idea of male members of the Heaven’s Gate cult undergoing voluntary castration in order to meet space aliens.

Then again, recent human history has no shortage of equally peculiar ideologies becoming fashionable for a period of time before being exposed as highly problematic and then becoming extremely disreputable. Did you, for example, know that the idea of forcibly separating the children of first-nation people in Canada and Australia to be “educated” in residential schools was once considered sound public policy? Or how about the once widespread public acceptance for forced sterilization of poor and non-white women In USA? Or how a bizarre surgical procedure such as lobotomy were once seen as a cure-all for anything that looked like “mental illness”.

I could give you many more examples such as race-based eugenics, recovery of memories of ritual satanic abuse etc .. but you get the point. Anyway, let us talk about why the transgender ideology as it being promoted today is almost certain to meet the same end as a number of these now utterly discredited and highly noxious ideologies. But before we go there, let us talk about the difference between that ideology and sexual orientation. To be more precise, let us talk about why sexual orientation is a totally different creature than transgenderism.

Firstly, the fact that a percentage of people prefer being sexually intimate with somebody of their own sex has been common knowledge throughout human history. There have always been gay men, lesbian women and bi-sexual men and women. If you don’t believe me just look the art, literature, stories and other documentary evidence from non-christian cultures and even some christian cultures. Do you think all those extremely close male friends of certain famous roman emperors were just friends? Do you think that the Pope who commissioned Michelangelo to paint frescoes in St. Peter’s Basilica was not aware of his sexual orientation? Do you think people in 17th-19th century were oblivious about what went aboard sailing ships with all-male crews?

And this brings me to the second relevant difference between sexual orientation and the ideology of transgenderism. When was the last time homosexuality was promoted as somehow ethically or morally superior to heterosexuality? The vast majority of gay men will always tell you that they discovered while growing up that they were born with said sexual orientation. The same goes for lesbian women and bi-sexual men and women. They simply wanted true legal equality and freedom from harassment and discrimination- which is something any rational person can agree with. And now, we have legal equality for them in most western countries.

By now, you might have figured out that I have no issue whatsoever with people finding their sexual orientation as they grow up. As you will soon see, there is a reason why I have highlighted some words in previous sentence and paragraph. To understand what I am getting at, let us talk a bit about myself- specifically my strong preferences for certain body types in women and certain BDSM practices. So how did I come to know that I preferred women with toned and curvy behinds or how did I figure out that I was into spanking willing women? Well.. the simple answer is that I just kept on going towards what I really liked over a period of years.

I did not reach my current physical preferences in women or sexual practices because those were considered fashionable or because somebody else told me or encouraged me in that direction. I reached there on my own and am therefore completely satisfied with the destination. But what does any of this have to do with the failure mode of transgenderism as an ideology? And why did I talk about all those other now discredited and noxious ideologies with no apparent connection to transgenderism near the beginning of this post?

What is the real connection between highly abusive residential schools for first-nation children, forced sterilization based on consideration of race-based eugenics, the use of horrendous surgical procedures such as lobotomy and the transgender ideology in its current form? Well.. it comes down to the validity of consent given by of those damaged by such “interventions”. To put it another way, if a person of sound mind who has reached the age of legal consent decides that they want to undergo surgery for transitioning into somebody of the opposite sex- well.. that is their right. And as long as they are aware of the realistic limitations that such a change would have on the quality of their life- that is their business.

But what about children and adolescents who do not have the range of life experiences and mental maturity necessary to make such a life altering decision? And this is not simply a “will nobody think of the children” type question. Consider for example, the consequences of an overenthusiastic mother putting her male child, who allegedly displays some feminine tendencies, on drugs to block puberty. What happens if the subject of such an intervention grows up to regret its effects? Is the mother and the “medical professionals” who supported and facilitated such a decision guilty of castrating that child? And this is the most likely scenario, since mothers seeking male-to-female transitions for their allegedly trans male child are far more common than mother seeking a female-to-male transition for their female child.

Or what about clinics who dole out hormone blockers and bilateral orchidectomies to any adolescent complaining of something hastily diagnosed as ‘gender dysphoria’? What happens when some teenage boy with mental health issues who thinks he is ‘trans’ and undergoes an orchidectomy grows up to regret that decision? What if the teenage boy makes that decision based on an air-brushed promise that transition to a woman will somehow improve his life? Who is responsible if the subject of such an irreversible surgery believes he was lied to by medical professionals? Are you now starting to appreciate how horrendously problematic the current elite and media driven fascination with helping children and adolescents to ‘transition’ could become?

How bad could the delayed backlash really be? Let me help you understand with a few thought experiments and examples.. Would you, for example, dare to support the ‘aboriginal residential schools system’ in polite company in Canada or Australia? If now, why not? Would you support raced-based eugenics, forced sterilization and lobotomies at your office Christmas party and still have a job in the coming year? Remember that they were all once “common sense” policies supported by the majority and governments of that era. Heck.. those who still support them on twitter are fearful of their employers and friends finding out.

Did you know that Penn State university will have to pay over 220 million to survivors of the eponymous sexual abuse scandal. And that is secondary to the reputational costs of that scandal to recruitment for their famous football program. Or what about the massive reputational hit to USA Gymnastics and 500 million dollar payout by Michigan State University because they looked the other way while Larry Nassar diddled hundreds of little girls under his care? Can you now imagine a catholic priest without also thinking of the enormous sexual abuse scandal and coverup within the catholic church. And remember, the vast majority of children affected by those scandals were only mentally scarred.

Now try to imagine the size of the shit-storm, a decade from now, when thousands of children and adolescents who were transitioned while legally minor or under air-brushed assurances realize that they are very unhappy with results of irreversible surgical and medical procedures. Even the loudest squawking by ‘trans’ activists will then have no effect on the course of events, resulting in the utter discreditation of these ‘activists’ in popular public perception. We have seen this story many times before, and it always ends badly for the ‘activists’ and whatever bullshit cause they are promoting.

Have a feeling that responses to this post will necessitate another one on this topic.

    I found this link on all places at a radical feminist website…

    http://www.thepublicdiscourse.com/2015/04/14688/

    it appears many of these people do regret their choices even if made after 18 years old…

    This has always been an issue. But the sheer number of people jumping on the ‘trans’ bandwagon right now is going to make things pretty bad within 5-10 years.

    “When was the last time homosexuality was promoted as somehow ethically or morally superior to heterosexuality?”

    That actually seems to be the culture we are living in today…

    Oddly enough, never experienced a gay guy saying that. lesbian chick.. maybe. But never a gay guy.

    While I don’t encourage discrimination, I’m highly disturbed by the creeping presence of homosexuality. I see it more and more it seems like. There are so many issues that come with homosexual behavior, particularly among men.

    There is more than a casual link between homosexuality and pedophilia. The catholic Cardinal from Washington was just revealed to be not only a homosexual, but also a pedophile. These things should be talked about and explored.


    Homosexuality is a very different creature from transgenderism. As I said in that post, it has been always around and most cultures have tacitly accepted it- since forever.

    The reason why so catholic priests end up getting caught with little boys is that catholic priesthood excludes heterosexual and openly gay men. In other words, it deliberately concentrates the most sexually repressed and screwed up men within its ranks. Hence the problem..

      That is interesting. I’m still confused why after all these years Catholics still ban priests from having sexual relationships. I still haven’t heard a logical explanation for the ban.

        Why would you look for logic within an inherently illogical ideology? Seems pretty obvious to me why.

      • August 1, 2018 at 9:50 am

        It like roaches. For every one you see, there are hundreds hidden from view.

        Who controls the Church other than the same perverts who molest the children? Why would they change, when they can simply keep getting away with what they have been doing and wanted, and want to continue doing. There is no real incentive for change because the church is comprised with men who did not want to marry to begin with and would rather live life expressing their preferred pedophilloic sexuality behind the cover of celibacy. Why would they change their operations on such a fundamental level, when all they have to do is continue their practice and hide it behind feigned indignation and “no tolerance” policies they successfully use to hide what their perverse rape of children?

    “…mothers seeking male-to-female transitions for their allegedly trans male child are far more common than mother seeking a female-to-male transition for their female child.”

    This doesn’t seem to be a cause for alarm, because that would simply reproduce the actual skewed ratios of transgender people to begin with: https://www.quora.com/Why-are-male-to-female-transsexuals-about-three-times-more-common-than-female-to-male-transsexuals

    And why are they so skewed to begin with? Also, it is way more than three times more common.

    It might be useful to learn a bit more about how the therapies actually work: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2444866417301101

    I could provide links to similar cheerleading literature from 1920-1945 era about race-based Eugenics. Guess what happened to that ideology after 1945…

    Although the ‘hype’ around transgenderism seems highly problematic, equating these therapies to child castration might be a bit extreme. The emphasis seems to be on providing kids with ‘more time’ to choose gender identity, not about the parents ‘pushing their kids’ into whatever their stupid ideology is. I also highly doubt most parents are pro-trans anyway.

    Why do you think they require more time? Also, let us call child castration by its true name.

    As far as the elites and the media promoting homosexual/transgender identities, it’s only for scoring points among SJWs so that they vote for whatever idiot of the month and don’t pay attention to the massive economic decline/instability the elites have caused. They couldn’t give less of a fuck about gay or trans people.

    This has nothing to with the rest of what you are promoting as “normal”.

      “I could provide links to similar cheerleading literature from 1920-1945 era about race-based Eugenics. Guess what happened to that ideology after 1945…”

      I don’t consider that article “cheerleading literature,” far from it. It clearly says out the potential negatives.

      “This has nothing to with the rest of what you are promoting as “normal”.”

      *I* don’t promote it at all. In fact I don’t think these therapies should be used for children purely on principle, regardless of the negative or positive effects. What I am saying is that it’s a bit too soon to throw it in the same bin as eugenics, lobotomies, or other extreme pseudoscientific “procedures,” especially since it is reversible.

  8. July 31, 2018 at 6:55 pm

    Unrelated but I just heard about this recently and wanted ur take…. There is a book called “How mamas love their babies” by a former “sex worker” that is AIMED AT PRESCHOOLERS and has the purpose of (and I am NOT TROLLING), normalizing “sex work” of mothers to their children by comparing it to regular jobs!!!! You should google this book and “review” it. Because, it really doesn’t get any worse than that shit, and I am not some religious person or any of that crap. But I just thought that was NUTZ.

    Interesting! Will take a look at that book.

      Sex work literally is a “regular job.” Maybe if the crumbling late stage capitalist economy would be fixed, sex work would go away. But as it is there are many mothers who basically have to do sex work to provide for their kids.

      • August 1, 2018 at 2:52 pm

        I dont have a problem with hoes (“sex work” is stupid sounding to me tho), but it’s definitely not a regular job. Not that jobs are the be all end all because they aren’t, but being a hoe isn’t anything to write books for preschool kids about IMO.

        I’m not some moral Jesus punk either but being a hoe is a lot like being a poker cheat or a fortune teller or some shit LOL. Idgaf if ppl fuck for money but…. you just said basically that those women are doing that bc of a bad economy. So do that shit silently and keep it moving.

        Dont write some damn kidz bopper book about it (and the book has civil rights movement women’s pics in it like wtf…). I think my biggest problem is a lot of these “sex workers” are just really annoying self righteous cunts who wont STFU on twitter, and it irritates me. Maybe its just me

        “Sex workers” getting in your face about their rights,
        is a hell of a lot better than “feminists” getting in your face about how you as a man are to blame for everything gone bad, and you don’t deserve anything when something goes right.

        As a matter of fact the fewer “sex workers” there are agitating for their rights, is proof that the society has become 100% misandric (and probably racist) with a tendency to use social media to get men fired and false accusations.

      • August 2, 2018 at 8:23 am

        @P Ray

        Well the book I mentioned was printed by the “feminist press” and most of the “sex workers” I see online ARE essentially doing what you said. Here is a typical series of sequential tweets from one from one:

        “Reminder that wanting to go on a “real” date with an escort is rarely a compliment. You don’t want to date us, you want to date the IDEA of us. Our personas. What we choose to show you. You don’t want a girlfriend, you want the skills of a hot sex worker on tap for free.

        Asking us on a “real” date being complimentary is based on the RIDICULOUS rhetoric that you’re doing us a favour. SPOILER ALERT – You’re not. It’s deeply rooted in a saviour complex. It assumes we don’t already have partners or if single that we even want or need one.

        You know what is complimentary?

        Paying us for a freaking labour, acknowledging that sex work is real work and respecting our boundaries.

        Now that is a big bloody mood.”

        …..who the hell wants to pay to have sex with someone who thinks like that LOL. I guess that is why AD says he doesn’t get with american prostitutes. Fuck that shit…..

        August 2, 2018 at 9:35 am

        There’s always going to be sex workers that don’t enjoy their job … that’s why the super feminist ones don’t get clients who have the self-respect to not accept insults.

        What they think is immaterial, they’re being paid to do a job, it’s a transaction.
        If they don’t want to do the job don’t take the money.
        And if they back out halfway, make them famous in the hobbyist websites.

  9. August 1, 2018 at 9:33 am

    Your forethought is clearly brilliant in that it is so obvious yet most people (myself included) did not think of it. Your comparison to lobotomy, etc. is self evidently accurate. There is no other possible outcome and we are already seeing it play out to some extent now but enough results aren’t manifested yet as trans activists, prestitutes and whorenalists continue to glorify sexual confusion and sexual mutilation. Mostly women overwhelmingly support fetal homocide because, for egotistical reasons, their own offspring pose a potential inconvenience. Even women who claim not to support abortion effectively do nothing to stop it. Actions, including their lack speaks louder than words. So, it should be no surprise to any rational person that more women than men support sexual confusion and mutilation of their own offspring for their egotistical reasons.

    Aahhh, yes….but it’s all in the name of progress….

    As some of your most recent post also correctly point out, the noxious ideologies will not be eradicated until their originators and promoters are controlled or exterminated.

    Gender is not a costume.

    Male and female are not stereotypes. They are biological realities. They are not “assigned at birth”. They are physiological phenomena observable in the womb via ultrasound long before birth. They are not “secondary characteristics”. They are the culmination of extremely complex physiological conditions formed at the molecular level and below, the atomic level, subatomic level. The observable realities of this physiobiological condition is formed by biochemical, physical, and electro physical phenomena we know less about than we do. Gender reassignment surgery is an impossibility. True reassignment if gender can only occur at the molecular level which is determined by atomic and subatomic phenomena. This cannot be legitimately accomplished without altering the “genetic code” of every cell, altering every molecule, every atom, every subatomic phenomena that forms the individual. The individual,would have to be completely altered at a level we do not have the power to alter or comprehend. The attempts to alter gender are nothing more than sexual mutilation.

      Despite your bullshitting, excessive use of long words, and “authoritative” prose, the fact remains that there are such things as gender dysphoria/gender identity disorder, hermaphroditism, etc. You clearly are not a biologist nor do you even have the slightest clue what you are talking about. The fact that you don’t even seem to have basic knowledge about the human body, and apparently have no idea what a “secondary sex characteristic” is, makes it quite obvious that you are full of shit.

      This article isn’t about making the case that transgenderism doesn’t exist, it’s about what to do about children who may or may not have gender related issues or disorders and whether or not they will be made victims of overzealous “identity politics.”
