Serving Women

The woman who made this video was banned from Facebook for 7 days for hate speech. She was upset because she went to a training at a shelter for battered women and was told she would have to accept that men are women if they say they are and that she must never question anyone about their stated “gender”. (Although, the guys are not really passing as women, it’s part of the sexual paraphilia to believe they are getting away with their masquerade.)  So basically, any woman who works in any kind of service agency that was created by and for women, to protect women from male violence, is now being forced to pretend a man is really a woman if he says he is and let him into the private areas where women are seeking shelter from battery and sexual abuse by males.

There is a vicious war being waged against women and leftist idiots are setting the fires under women’s feet, forcing us to lie and silencing us everywhere we once felt free to express our pain.

People are male or female and are not interchangeable, no matter what the masculinist corporate medical cartel tries to sell you about sex change. Male socialization happens to boys whether they are straight or gay or suffer from autogynephilia and get their rocks off in feminine clothes and make-up. And that is problem with men, they ALL believe they have the right to take women’s time, energy,  labor and private spaces. If you think there’s a problem with gender then you need to shrink male privilege, not expand it by opening women’s spaces to men with personality disorders that make them act out feminine stereotypes.

The Eugenic Medical Abuse of Vulnerable Children

butterfly

From The Daily Mail:

School has SEVENTEEN children changing gender as teacher says vulnerable pupils are being ‘tricked’ into believing they are the wrong sex.

  • The Mail On Sunday reveals that 17 pupils are in the process of changing gender
  • Most of children undergoing transformation are autistic according to teacher 
  • This means that 150 autistic teenagers were issued with puberty blocker drugs 

An astonishing 17 pupils at a single British school are in the process of changing gender, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

Most of the youngsters undergoing the transformation are autistic, according to a teacher there, who said vulnerable children with mental health problems were being ‘tricked’ into believing they are the wrong sex.

The whistleblower says few of the transgender children are suffering from gender dysphoria – the medical term for someone who feels they were born in the wrong body – but are just easily influenced, latching on to the mistaken belief they are the wrong sex as a way of coping with the problems caused by autism.

The Unspoken Homophobia Propelling the Transgender Movement in Children

 

The Unspoken Homophobia Propelling the Transgender Movement in Children

Conversion therapy seeks to change a person’s sexual orientation. No mental health professional in their right mind conducts this type of therapeutic intervention anymore, because it is understood that sexual orientation is immutable from a very young age. Gender identity, however—whether someone feels masculine or feminine—is flexible in prepubescent children and grows more stable into adulthood.

Therapy that seeks to help gender dysphoric children grow comfortable in their birth sex (known in the research literature as the “therapeutic approach”) has been conflated with conversion therapy, but this is inaccurate. All of the available research following gender dysphoric children longitudinally shows that the majority desist; they outgrow their feelings of dysphoria by puberty and grow up to be gay in adulthood, not transgender.

The Gender Identity Phantom

by Michael Laidlaw, MD

Michael Laidlaw is a physician board certified in Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism and Internal Medicine. Research interests have included circadian rhythms, magnesium and bone disorders, thyroid carcinoma, type 2 diabetes education, weight loss and food addiction.  He has been active in private practice for 12 years. Most recently he has been involved in education regarding male and female sex hormones and development including critically examining childhood gender dysphoria diagnosis and treatment from the perspective of an endocrinologist. You can read more here, and see his testimony to the California Senate regarding foster children and gender affirmative care here.

The New York Times article “Helping Pediatricians Care for Transgender Children” pitches the American Academy of Pediatrics policy paper on comprehensive care for transgender adolescents [1,2]. This care includes the most radical and risky of hormone manipulations and surgeries. There is a concept defined called “gender identity” which has no physical presence and apparently can only be made known to the person in which it resides. Comprehensive gender affirmative therapy is a high risk, experimental therapy based on low quality evidence and represents a treatment for a condition which cannot be diagnosed by any doctor.

Consider, if you were told your child had cancer would you expect to see that a tissue sample had been collected and analyzed to prove the diagnosis? If you were told that your child has diabetes would you expect to see blood sugar results that confirm the diagnosis?….

Women’s Liberation Front v. United States in re: Title lX Protections For Women

From the WoLF GoFundMe page

From Feminist Current by Susan Cox

Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF) is suing the U.S. federal government in order to challenge the recent dissolution of Title IX protections for women and girls in education. (Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 protects women and girls from discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs or activities that receive federal funding.) Since its legislation, Title IX has formed the bedrock of equal educational opportunity in the U.S., necessitating countless reforms to raise the level of opportunity for female persons in an attempt to match what had in the past only been afforded to males.

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and Department of Education (DOE) recently enacted a policy redefining the legal category of “sex” in Title IX to “gender-identity.” The DOJ and DOE was empowered to make this change based on the premise that it does not constitute a substantive reinterpretation of the original legislation. Women’s Liberation Front disagrees with this premise, asserting that the change presents a radical departure from the core of the legislation’s meaning and function, writing on their fundraising campaign page:

“This [redefinition] effectively renders Title IX meaningless, as females can no longer be recognized as distinct from males. Indeed, Title IX, the legislation used to champion the very creation of female sports, is now being used to dismantle them, as male athletes demand access to female teams, dominating the competition.

The reinterpretation of ‘sex’ to include ‘gender identity’ also means that girls’ bathrooms and locker rooms must be opened up to any male who ‘identifies’ as female. Girls’ rights to personal privacy and freedom from male sexual harassment, forced exposure to male nudity, and voyeurism have been eliminated with the stroke of a pen. Schools that do not comply with the demands of any male student to access protected female spaces will now lose federal funding.”

Two days ago, Women’s Liberation Front launched a gofundme campaign to cover the legal fees for bringing this challenge to the courts. The campaign has already raised over $5,000 in donations.

Not Woke: My Experience as the Child of a Trans Individual

Not Woke: My Experience as the Child of a Trans Individual

It has come to my attention that I am not “woke”. Not in the least. Be that as it may, I want to share my story about being the child of a transgender individual because in all the years this has been my story I have observed very few people consider this perspective. Many years ago, when I so desperately needed to feel understood, there were no resources. Now, the debate over trans issues is all out in the open, and I’m still not seeing many resources for kids of trans people. There are lots of articles and support groups focused on how to support trans loved ones but nothing about how to support the children caught up and confused by such a dramatic change in a family.

Before I begin, I’d just like to say I’ve never heard of any other stories exactly like mine. I don’t know whether the behavior I’m going to detail is typical. I’m not commenting on all trans individuals; I couldn’t possibly. These vignettes of my dad’s behavior during this time are all on the theme of his transition, but they don’t define him entirely, nor do they define anyone else. They define my experience with his transition.

My father came out as transgender the summer before I started 8th grade, and I found it traumatizing. This was the year 2000 when Eddie Izzard’s transvestite stand-up comedy was edgy in the extreme. My developing adolescent brain had no idea how to interact with a parent who wasn’t willing to be identified as my father anymore. None of my peers had an opinion or support to offer. Every time I shared my experience with a friend, they always seemed kind of stunned, sometimes disgusted. It was a different time. No one was “woke”.

Though I loved my father with a devotion bordering on idolatry, I felt traumatized by the process of his transition. Some children of trans parents express having “known” what was coming when their parents came out, but I had no idea what was coming. My dad’s news was a shock. My father was a 6-foot-tall, stoic, hyper-intellectual black belt in karate. My dad was manly. “Becoming a woman” seemed like the last thing he was ever likely to do, but he announced his intention to do just that one evening in late summer. Shortly after that, his behavior started to change drastically, and it was this new behavior more than the transition itself that I found traumatizing. It started small.

He asked me not to call him “Daddy” for the first time while we were in a Target. We were shopping, and I called to him something like “Daddy, come look at this,” but he was already presenting as a woman in public and was mortified. To his credit, I now understand being embarrassed by your kids in public and saying potentially hurtful things without thinking. No one is perfect. But I was still traumatized. I felt betrayed. I was very much in denial about my pain.

During that school year, I tried to commit suicide by taking 11 ibuprofen at once. The bottle said not to take more than 10 at once, so I took 11. It’s a little absurd I now realize, but I was a naive girl who had had a happy childhood in a loving home until that point, and so I really thought ibuprofen would end my life.

In the intervening years, my experience as the teenage child of a transgender person continued to be traumatizing. His inappropriate behavior regarding his sexual identity intensified. My dad openly discussed graphic and minute details about his hormone therapy, breast development, and surgeries with me; at one point he offered to let me see the finished work of the reassignment surgery while it was “still a surgical site.” After his surgery, my dad practiced using dilation tools with the door open. He had previously shown me the tools: acrylic phalluses used to maintain the newly created orifice. He referred to the largest one as “the tin can.” He was covered with a blanket while using them, but I knew what he was doing and why.

He told me stories about his adventures interacting with the world as a woman- stories about flirting with men or having slumber parties with the members of his trans support group. There were stories about telling women he met that he didn’t have children because he knew he couldn’t discuss pregnancy and birth with them from a woman’s perspective. He told strangers he didn’t have kids because he didn’t want to be outed. Then he told me about it.

I attempted suicide again when I was 16. I used pills once more, but this time it was a mix of all the pills I could find in the house: both prescription and over-the-counter because I meant business. As before, I wanted to end my life because I felt so emotionally and psychologically maxed out by everything that attended my dad’s transition that any little extra difficulty pushed me over the edge of anxiety and despair. I also felt a powerful need to protect my dad from my pain. To this day, I’m not even sure he knows about this second attempt.

After he met a man and they started a serious relationship, he asked me to lie to this man at our family’s Christmas party and tell him I was a niece. He asked me to pretend to be an orphan in my own family for the sake of keeping his secret. Our relationship became increasingly strained. A year later I was at the hospital for another suicide attempt.

When I became engaged, my dad refused to walk me down the aisle at my wedding because he didn’t want to be recognized as my father by my guests. Eventually, I asked him not to contact me anymore. It has been 5 years since we have spoken.

I’m not insensible to the fact that the above actions don’t represent a complete picture of my father’s character. I’m not insensible to the fact that all of my own unkind and selfish actions listed out in this manner would seem damning.  I’m only trying to give a clear picture of my own experience as the child of a transgender person. I found it traumatizing, and it was a time in the world when no one thought about things like this. I was on my own for dealing with it, so to speak. It is my experience that it was something that had to be dealt with.

I wasn’t “woke” then, and I’m not “woke” now. The trauma I felt in connection with my dad’s transition has been deep and long lasting. Just this week, I woke up from a sound sleep in a cold sweat because a memory of my father describing his first “female orgasms” to me when I was 15 bubbled to the surface of my subconscious.

Trans issues are something of a trigger for me. My personal experience makes it difficult for me to feel compassion for trans people in their current attempts to be seen. You’ll notice my continued use of male pronouns, the term “reassignment surgery” instead of “affirmation surgery.” I know that it’s not very tolerant and it’s certainly not progressive, maybe even tone-deaf, but it is the product of my experience.

Trans people aren’t bad people, but my experience with the trans individual I know best was akin to child abuse. I don’t know how else to describe my exposure to such graphic sexual issues so early and often. In addition to the sexual content, the feelings of betrayal and abandonment I associate with my father’s behavior as he navigated his transition leave me feeling jumpy and twitchy every time trans issues come up.

There is no hate here, no agenda. There is only pain, a lot of prayer, and the fervent hope that this pain will one day become something good.

Child Castration/Clitoridectomy Specialists

46362786_2371731056174634_8114230100263698432_nI looked up the bios of the doctors who are performing experiments on children’s reproductive organs  locally, here in Iowa City.  Children are too young to understand what gender roles mean and too young to give consent to be experimented on and sterilized. They look like normal people, but I know they are reckless and opportunistic monsters performing medical eugenics experiments on kids who are confused by our violent and sexist gender hierarchy system. This is all about money and power dressed up in virtue signalling about children’s distress.

And this is the propaganda that is being pushed in IOwa schools in order to drive business to the UIHC  Pediatric Sex Organ Destruction Clinic:

Transgender Rights and The Iowa Sexual Assault Coalition.

39811067_10156573534564844_1405198348746489856_nThis is an exchange I recently had with the director of The Iowa Coalition Against Sexual Assault  after I had been banned from their facebook site for my inflammatory comments that women don’t have penises and that men who say they are women are just as dangerous to women in vulnerable spaces as any other man.  They spoke to me in a manner I consider very condescending and of course they centered the feelings of men with psychosexual  disorders over the truth. I publish these exchanges because I want there to be a record of how people enabled the  eugenic sterilization of gender non-conforming children and blithely supported the erasure of women’s rights under the onslaught of the new patriarchal gender cult.

Subject: Transgender Rights and the Elimination of the Rights of Women

Hello Elizabeth Barnhill,

In 1985 sued my father for sexually assaulting me from my infancy until age 12. I was silenced by the courts because of the statute of limitations and so I went to the Vermont State Legislature and asked them to consider changing the laws on child sex abuse. Which they finally did, after 20 years. I worked in the domestic violence field supporting sexual assault survivors for 30 years.  I am writing to you today to complain that I have been blocked from commenting on your organization’s Facebook page because I know that thoughts in a man’s head do not change his sex and that declaring oneself to be transgender does not change a man’s propensity toward male pattern violence. I am no longer able to attend support groups for rape survivors at RVAP because I have been informed I must accept that men are women if they say they are.

This is my account of my experience as an incest victim and the lawsuit I tried to bring against my abuser.

https://jeannesjive.wordpress.com/2012/01/04/jeannes-jive/

I posted a number of links to your Facebook page that describe the problem of allowing men who say they are women into protected female spaces (such as locker rooms, bathrooms, and domestic violence shelters) and I was silenced for daring to tell the truth. The feelings of men with sexual paraphilias and psychosexual personality disorders apparently take precedence over factual reality and the hard research that I as a female survivor of 12 years of sexual slavery and battery and a lifelong activist for the rights of women and children tried to present to your organization.

This is a list of the rights of women which are being destroyed by transgender activism:

Right here in Iowa City they are performing eugenic experiments on kids. There is no long term research into the effects of this terrible medical fad. But they are just kids so they are disposable, right? As long as medical corporations are raking in the dough nobody better question this.

The director’s reply:

Elizabeth Barnhill director@iowacasa.org via iowa.onmicrosoft.com

Hi Jeanne,
Thank you for writing to let us know of your concerns. You have been through a lot in your lifetime and worked hard to get laws and systems to change. Thank you for all of your work.

We don’t agree that all transwomen are inherently dangerous and harmful to others, hence our social media policy, which says

“IowaCASA will not tolerate any kind of posts, links to articles on our page, or commentary that may be viewed as hurtful, harmful, or derogatory to any group of people. If a person continues to post remarks that may be viewed as hurtful, harmful, or derogatory, IowaCASA has the right to ban the person from the page.”

We know that you may want to comment on various issues related to sexual assault. If you would agree not to post and/or link to commentary that is derogatory to transpeople, we would agree to remove the block from your account.

I’m not able to speak to the decision made by RVAP, but would encourage you to have further discussion with them, if you have not. They likely have a similar policy about restricting derogatory remarks about any group of people.

We wish you well in your work,

Beth
