Gender transition drugs could be bad for the heart

 

My problem with this article is that they never come out and say there is no reason for anyone to do this terrible thing to their body in order to try to solve an emotional and social problem.  Because they are DOCTORS and this is about making money and having that money keep rolling in for the life of the person who castrates and poisons himself or herself.

 

Gender transition drugs could be bad for the heart

New research now published in the journal Circulation finds that some people who are gender transitioning may be at a higher risk of experiencing cardiovascular conditions due to the hormone therapy they are receiving.

Some drugs required for gender transition may increase cardiovascular risk.

Previous studies have revealed that hormone therapy raises cardiovascular risk.

For instance, according to estimates from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), therapy with estrogen and progestin puts menopausal women at:

  • a 41 percent higher risk of stroke
  • a 29 percent higher risk of a heart attack
  • a 100 percent higher risk of blood clots

Estrogen alone increases stroke risk by 39 percent and blood clot risk by 47 percent, according to the same NIH estimates.

However, how does hormone therapy affect people who are gender transitioning? So far, scientists have not addressed this question fully, so a new study aimed to fill this gap in research.

Dr. Nienke Nota — a researcher in the Department of Endocrinology at the Amsterdam University Medical Center in the Netherlands — and her team examined the medical records of 3,875 Dutch transgender people who had hormone therapy between 1972 and 2015.

Trans women twice as likely to have a stroke

Their study examined 2,517 transgender women and 1,358 transgender men. The women were 30 years old, on average, and they had received estrogen either alone or in combination with androgen suppressors.

The men were 23 years old, on average, and they received testosterone therapy as a part of their gender transition.

Dr. Nota and her colleagues clinically followed the trans women for an average period of 9 years and the trans men for an average of 8 years after they started hormone therapy.

The researchers examined the incidence of cardiovascular problems such as heart attacks, strokes, and blood clots among transgender people and compared it with the incidence of such events in cis men and cis women.

Cis people are those whose gender identity matches the biological sex assigned to them at birth.

The study found that trans women were more than twice as likely to have a stroke as cis women and almost twice as likely to have a stroke as cis men.

Trans women were also five times and 4.5 times more likely to develop blood clots than cis women and cis men, respectively.

Trans women also had heart attacks more than twice as often as cis women, and trans men were over three times more likely to have a heart attack than cis women.

Dr. Nota comments on the findings, saying, “In light of our results, we urge both physicians and transgender individuals to be aware of this increased cardiovascular risk.”

The authors caution that their analysis did not account for modifiable risk factors such as smoking, stress, diet, and exercise.

However, they say that hormone therapy may be largely to blame for the increased cardiovascular risk.

Specifically, estrogen promotes blood clotting, and testosterone could do the same by raising the concentration of red blood cells and increasing the levels of bad cholesterol, they explain.

The people at Public Space One promote and enable the Transgender Ideology which underlies the eugenic medical abuse of gay and lesbian children. This is the response I received to the blog post I wrote about the man pretending to be the opposite sex, who is one of their members.in an desperate attempt to get their attention and inform them about how their misogynist and anti-life beliefs are affecting kids.

I guess loyalty to his man friend is more important than looking at the evidence that he is complicit in the medical abuse of children.

Dear Jeanne,
As much as I’d like to engage and debate the information you continue to send us and put out into the world, I’m going to keep this short and to the point:
• Please stop emailing us links, articles, and anything related to your transphobic beliefs
• Please stop putting your stickers and images over the signs at the Wesley Center and targeting us with this ongoing harassment
• Please stop targeting Violet, one of our long-time members and friend, with your harassment and intolerant beliefs
Finally I would ask you to examine your position and see the world as more complicatedly-beautiful than it is cut-and-dry. As I aim to do my part in creating open space, resources, and platforms for a lot of people (a public space), intolerance is the one thing that will not be tolerated. The information you have created and repeatedly directed at us trades in this, and because of this, I am asking you TO STOP harassing us (the Wesley Center, Public Space One, the IC Press Co-op, and Violet) and to quite spreading this trauma and hate, in person at our building and online at your blog.
Best,
J

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.

Consultation Questions

Dear Minister for Women and Equalities,

• I support the right of transgender people to live safely and free from the discrimination they experience because they identify as transgender.

• I also support the right of women to live safely and free from the discrimination they experience because they were born into the female sex.

• However, no increase in the legal rights of transgender people should come at the expense of women’s existing legal rights, or diminish in any way a woman’s right to safety, privacy or fairness.


MY VIEWS ON CHANGES TO THE GENDER RECOGNITION ACT ARE AS FOLLOWS.

I HAVE LIMITED MY RESPONSES TO QUESTIONS 3, 9, 12, 13a, 14, 15, 19, 20 AND 22 AS THESE CONCERN ME THE MOST.


Q3. Do you think there should be a requirement in the future for a diagnosis of gender dysphoria?

Yes

Please explain the reasons for your answer

If doctors, diagnoses and medical reports aren’t part of the checking process it means anyone can declare themselves male or female and no one can say otherwise. it leaves the system open to abuse by anyone, for any reason.


Q9. Do you think the privacy and disclosure of information provisions in section 22 of the Gender Recognition Act are adequate ?

No

If no, how do you think it should be changed ? Birth sex should never be confidential when a male-born person is attempting to access a female-only space.


Q12. Do you think that the participation of trans people in sport, as governed by the Equality Act 2010, will be affected by changing the Gender Recognition Act ?

Yes

Please give reasons for your answer

I do not support any changes that would increase the number of people gaining a GRC because it will be more difficult to exclude male-born people from female-only sports if more male-born people have birth certificates saying they were born female.


Q13a. Do you think that the operation of the single-sex and separate-sex service exceptions in relation to gender reassignment in the Equality Act 2010 will be affected by changing the Gender Recognition Act ?

Yes

Please give reasons for your answer

I do not support any changes that would increase the number of people gaining a GRC because it will be more difficult to exclude male-born people from female-only spaces if more male-born people have birth certificates saying they were born female.


Q14. Do you think that the operation of the occupational requirement exception in relation to gender reassignment in the Equality Act 2010 will be affected by changing the Gender Recognition Act ?

Yes

Please give reasons for your answer

I do not support any changes that would increase the number of people gaining a GRC because it will be more difficult to exclude male-born people from female-only occupations if more male-born people have birth certificates saying they were born female.


Q15. Do you think the operation of the communal accommodation exception in relation to gender reassignment in the Equality Act 2010 will be affected by changing the Gender Recognition Act ?

Yes

Please give reasons for your answer

I do not support any changes that would increase the number of people gaining a GRC because it will be more difficult to exclude male-born people from female-only accommodation if more male-born people have birth certificates saying they were born female.


Q19. Do you think that changes to the Gender Recognition Act will impact on areas of law and public services other than the Equality Act 2010 ?

Yes

Please give reasons for your answer

I do not support any changes that reduce eligibility requirements for a legal transition because it will mean more male-born prisoners requesting transfer into a women’s prison.


Q20. Do you think that there needs to be changes to the Gender Recognition Act to accommodate individuals who identify as non-binary ?

No

If you would like to, please expand upon your answer

A persons legal sex must continue to be limited to either male or female.


Q22. Do you have any further comments about the Gender Recognition Act ?

Yes

If you answered yes, please add your comments.

A comprehensive, evidence-based equality impact assessment on all protected characteristics must be published before a draft bill is presented to parliament. All stakeholders must be engaged to get evidence of impact.

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.

Mortification of the Flesh at the Frozen Yogurt Stand

dmrdc5-6gczdt9658o167hb1nj3originalI’m not good at “treating” myself,  I still have the protestant ethic attitude of self-denial that was part of my environment as a child.  I know I shouldn’t eat too many sweets and so I avoid ice cream parlors and frozen yogurt shops.  Last Wednesday I was coming home from a day of exploring new “wilderness” areas around the University of Iowa.  I’d been out in the sun tramping the trails for several hours and as I was walking home down the Ped Mall I decided that a bowl of frozen yogurt sounded like a good idea.

I am a survivor of incest. I was held as a sexual hostage throughout my childhood by the violent pedophile who was my father. The abuse began in infancy and continued until I was able to escape at age 16 when I ran away to Canada. I am hyper-alert to body language, to subtle cues of voice, intonation, to the patterns of speech and the way that men and women move, the differences in the shapes of shoulders and hips, the hands, the neck. I have to know these things in order to keep myself safe. My body knows instinctively that male bodies are a potential source of danger to me. I can’t turn this sense off…it is hardwired by all of the beatings and rapes I have received at the hands of men that began so early in my life. This is not transphobia or bigotry, this is gut-level biological survival.

At the counter of the yogurt stand was a person who appeared at first to be a 13 year old boy, complete with short, slicked back hair, narrow shoulders, a shadow of a mustache and a breaking adolescent voice.  After the first sentence this young woman uttered I knew immediately that she was in her late teens/early twenties, taking testosterone and pretending to be a boy.  T-voice is extremely distinctive.  I have heard it in the voices of several young women who decided to detransition.  The voice change is permanent for girls and women who medically transition.

Detransition Video

The other cues I picked up on were the tangible sense of anxiety and tension that exuded from her and the detached, mechanical way she kept repeating the same sentence to every customer as they paid for their treat, “Have a nice nice night!” she called out in that odd voice that sounded as if she’d been huffing balloon gas.  It was strange because it was 3 in the afternoon.  Anyway,  I felt uncomfortable sitting there because I knew something about this woman that she thought she was keeping secret.  I was also a bit concerned that she may have recognized me.  This is a small community and the Tranz Cult is an even smaller clique and I have been vehemently vocal about the eugenic horror that is medical sexual reassignment.

A post about medical transition of a boy

Medical Transition Article

Holy Self-flagellation, Ashura in AfghanistanBut I was also uncomfortable because I was in the presence of a human being who had signed up for inclusion in what is essentially a cult that is based in  mortification of the flesh. These mortification cults have been a staple of patriarchal religions since the beginning of male supremacy.  They express the core of the body-hatred that is a fundamental aspect of the slave religions of patriarchy.  I believe these cults arise in times of increased social duress as a way to cement one’s sense of identification with a group in the face of an uncertain future –  which is certainly the case in an age of peak oil and climate chaos.  These poor kids think they have invented some kind of brand new revolutionary gender theology, when really the Tranz Cult is an outgrowth of the bondage and discipline scene, which is a leftover from The Inquisition, i.e., the torture and murder of witches and other heretics. The message is that the sex hierarchy WILL BE ENFORCED.  If you don’t fit the stereotype you can join the Tranz and buy yourself a new “meat costume” and act out the opposite sexist stereotype. So progressive!

Mortification of the flesh is meant to achieve salvation. Saved from the fate of growing up female in a world that tortures and exploits females.  And otherwise progressive and intelligent people support this insanity and vilify women like me who try to alert the public to what is happening to kids as a result of the gender identity ideology cult nonsense. Nobody has EVER been born into the “wrong body.” Only a viciously body-and-woman-hating culture could dream up this kind of sadomasochistic crap.
