Authors note; As always please follow the links, every colored word in the text is a link. Believing random dudes on the internet is how we got here. Transsexual or Transgender people have always existed in our societies as a very tiny portion of the population. They, like all other members of society, should be treated with respect and support. My point is that Gender Theory is not about any of that. I call it a “Neo Marxist theory” because the epistemological and tactical roots of Judith Butler’s work lie in conflict theory. She also relies tactically on Marx and especially expounds Engels view of family as a mechanism of the ruling class. Its “Neo” because its a tailor made hybrid being used by the Neo Liberal Elite class.
Gender Theory is being forcibly impressed into our societies through our laws and schools. Using science and human health like a modern day Trojan horse. Its precepts are endlessly and rigidly “framed” for us by compliant corporate media. Across the western democracies this inhuman ideology has been inserted into every level of society. Its precepts have been spread though academic institutions that have wholly turned themselves into Ideological indoctrination camps. This dark dogma has been embedded into Canadian education curriculum at the earliest possible level by highly ideological teachers unions. Canadian Law, Human rights codes, work place codes of conduct, and most ominously an exponential growing body of “hate speech” legislation ensures that none may question this patent absurdity. Any questioning of the flood of increasingly irrational pronouncements of this new evangelistic ideology is met with brutal repression by its adherents or by the state using the force of unconstitutional legislation. If we do not utterly and immediately rebuke this Faustian ideology and in fact any claim that government sponsored “right think”of any kind can legally override objective reality then ten thousand years of human progress will be erased and we will condemn our children to mutilation and future generations to chains.
If you think I’m being hyperbolic with that last statement then consider the words of an employment judge in the UK in a ruling issued this wee in the case of Maya Forstater fired from her job for stating that biological males are indeed…male. Mr J Taylor stated in his judgement,
So there you have it, in more or less plain English. Objective reality is not worthy of respect in a modern democracy.
“You are a slow learner, Winston.” “How can I help it? How can I help but see what is in front of my eyes? Two and two are four.” “Sometimes, Winston. Sometimes they are five. Sometimes they are three. Sometimes they are all of them at once. You must try harder. It is not easy to become sane.” ― George Orwell, 1984
Gender Theory has nothing to do with Health care
The only long-term study done on “Transitioning” clearly shows little benifit and much harm from “Gender re assignment”
“The overall mortality for sex-reassigned persons was higher during follow-up (aHR 2.8; 95% CI 1.8–4.3) than for controls of the same birth sex, particularly death from suicide (aHR 19.1; 95% CI 5.8–62.9). Sex-reassigned persons also had an increased risk for suicide attempts (aHR 4.9; 95% CI 2.9–8.5) and psychiatric inpatient care (aHR 2.8; 95% CI 2.0–3.9). Comparisons with controls matched on reassigned sex yielded similar results. Female-to-males, but not male-to-females, had a higher risk for criminal convictions than their respective birth sex controls.”
The most diabolical part of all of this is that Gender Theory is nothing more than a second rate Neo Marxist revolutionary theory. This loathsome tripe was foisted upon the world by Judith Butler in a paper entitled “Gender Troubles” in 1990. Judith Butler is not a physician, nor a medical clinician. Butler is a philosopher and and rhetorical trickster. Her work , little known outside academic circles nevertheless is the foundational document for the idea that a man with a beard somehow medically needs to share a changing room with your minor daughter. An academic description of her work
“In Gender Trouble, Butler questioned the validity of much feminist political theorizing by suggesting that the subject whose oppression those theories attempted to explain—“women”—is an exclusionary construct that “achieves stability and coherence only in the context of the heterosexual matrix.” Her suspicion of the category led her to doubt the wisdom of conventional political activism aimed at protecting women’s rights and interests. She emphasized instead the subversive destabilization of “women” and other categories through consciously deviant gendered behavior that would expose the artificiality of conventional gender roles…Drawing on Marx (e.g. _The German Ideology_), Engels (_The Origin of the Family, Private Property, and the State_), and socialist feminists, Butler argues for an expansive conception of the material that includes
reproduction of persons, genders, and the ‘heterosexual normative family” many of the feminist arguments sought not only to identify the family as part of the mode of production,but to show how the very production of gender had to be understood as part of the “production of human beings themselves [in Engels’s words],”according to norms that reproduced the heterosexually normative
family….[Socialist feminists] maintained that a specifically social
account of the family was needed to explain the sexual division of labor
and the gendered reproduction of the worker. Essential to the
socialist-feminist position of the time was precisely the view that the
family is not a natural given and that, as a specific social arrangement of
kin functions, it remained historically contingent and, in principle,
She confirms this in the text of gender Troubles moreover asserting that the complete destruction of society is the goal without the pesky need to come up with any alternate structure.
“as an effort to think through the possibility of subverting and dis-.
placing those naturalized and reified notions of gender that support
masculine hegemony and heterosexist power, to make gender trouble,
not through the strategies that figure a Utopian beyond, but through the
mobilization, subversive confusion, and proliferation of precisely those
constitutive categories that seek to keep gender in its place by posturing
as the foundational illusions of identity……The very complexity of the discursive map that constructs gender appears to hold out the promise of an inadvertent and generative convergence of these discursive and regulatory structures. If the regulatory fictions of sex and gender are themselves multiply contested sites of meaning, then the very multiplicity of their construction holds out the possibility of a disruption of their univocal posturing.”
Butler , “Gender Troubles” 1990
So for those who haven’t devoted their lives to learning to weaponize speech lets, as they say, “unpack this”. Butler is essentially following the Marxist playbook.
“Marxists argue that the nuclear family performs ideological functions for Capitalism – the family acts as a unit of consumption and teaches passive acceptance of hierarchy. It is also the institution through which the wealthy pass down their private property to their children, thus reproducing class inequality.”
Butler asserts then that the destruction of the family is key to taking down the “hetero-normative patriarchal capitalist power structure” In her view destabilizing the basic reality of sexual dimorphism in humans and “disrupting” the family is the key to human progress. She admonishes her acolytes not to strive for anything better, no utopian ideals for our rhetorical radical. Progress is resumed by the utter destruction of what is,”to make gender trouble,not through the strategies that figure a Utopian beyond, but through the mobilization, subversive confusion, and proliferation of precisely those
No thought should be spared for what lies beyond the breakdown of this absolutely primal human structure that pre exists Ivy League political theory by a few million years. The fact that it is this political theory being imposed on our societies not an undiagnosed human health crisis is shown in the 30 “recognized gender identities many jurisdictions have now adopted. Obviously no scientific research result has ever shown anything like this, it does however perfectly answer Judy Butler’s call to,”multiply contested sites of meaning, then the very multiplicity of their construction holds out the possibility of a disruption of their univocal posturing.”
How to make a cheap political theory into medical “reality” in one easy step
Gender Dysphoria is presented to us as settled science from the medical community. So settled and immutable that our minor children are being propagandized, unnecessarily medicated with untested hormone concoctions and surgically mutilated at ever younger ages.
So lets look at how settled the science is and explore how Butlers tragic construct was inserted into both Law and Medical “best practices.” Canada wide.
Gender Identity Disorder was defined by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders 4th edition as
A strong and persistent cross-gender identification (not merely a desire for any perceived cultural advantages of being the other sex). In children, the disturbance is manifested by four (or more) of the following:
1. repeatedly stated desire to be, or insistence that he or she is, the other sex 2. in boys, preference for cross-dressing or simulating female attire; in girls, insistence on wearing only stereotypical masculine clothing 3. strong and persistent preferences for cross-sex roles in make-believe play or persistent fantasies of being the other sex 4. intense desire to participate in the stereotypical games and pastimes of the other sex 5. strong preference for playmates of the other sex
B. Persistent discomfort with his or her sex or sense of inappropriateness in the gender role of that sex.
C. The disturbance is not concurrent with a physical intersex condition.
D. The disturbance causes clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning.
(In children it is noted)
For clinically referred children, onset of cross-gender interests and activities is usually between ages 2 and 4 years, and some parents report that their child has always had cross-gender interests. Only a very small number of children with gender Identity Disorder will continue to have symptoms that meet criteria for Gender Identity Disorder in later adolescence or adulthood
So the recommended treatment in all cases was to work with the afflicted individual to make them comfortable with their biological reality. In very rare and extreme cases when there was no resolution after intense therapy only then would hormone and surgical intervention be carefully weighed.
After massive lobbying by Transgender rights groups like the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) and a growing pharmaceutical “Gender therapy ” industry.
These groups used the moral WMD’s of inclusion and Transphobia, and the DSM was revised. The civil society foundation funded World Professional Association for Transgender Health,(WPATH) is also conveniently enough the absolute arbitrator of “best practices” for trans health care world wide. In Canada specifically this function is taken care of by their local franchise CPATH.
Heavy funding from Big Phara, Medical service and Insurance corporations should come as no shock. The Transition industry is booming with Transition costing about140 000 US dollars and lifetime hormone therapy at hundreds per month per person. Might be time to call your broker.
Signs of Gender Dysphoria in Adolescents and Adults DSM-5 302.85 F64.1
To identify Gender Dysphoria in adults and adolescents, the DSM-5 notes that there is a conspicuous or evident discrepancy with the gender the individual thinks he is and what the culture recognizes. The difference must be evident for a minimum of half a year and have at least two criteria
The criteria are:
Obvious discrepancy in the gender the individual identifies with and his designated gender.
The Individual has an extreme want to hide or cover his assigned sex appearance.
The Individual has a powerful want to show the sex features of the opposite gender.
The Individual has a serious desire to convert to another gender.The Individual
The Individual has an intense desire for others to consider him as the other gender.
The Individual is passionately sure that he has the emotions and reactions that the other gender has.
The individual is experiencing anxiety that is causing problems in relationships, with a career and in other parts of his life
It doesn’t take a degree in anything unpronounceable to notice the massive conceptual and fundamental diagnostic methodological changes embodied here. One of the most important is the complete dropping of the proviso, not merely a desire for any perceived cultural advantages of being the other sex. Think about that in terms of what is actually happening in women’s sports and other parts of society
DSM IV version lists symptoms in an objective manner. “Discomfort” and “disturbance” to the individual are the diagnostic factors sighted thus relying on clinical observation of the individual and dispassionate professional interpretation of the realities of the subjects life circumstances and behavior.
DSM 5 version is almost entirely subjective. We go from “Persistent discomfort with his or her sex or sense of inappropriateness in the gender role of that sex.” to “Obvious discrepancy in the gender the individual identifies with and his designated gender.” That is a huge conceptual leap.
The actual biological sex is no longer a fact of nature it is “designated gender” inferring some clerical error has been made. The rest are exclusively based on the subjective view of the individual suffering the dysphoria thus becoming the first recommendation for self diagnosis in the history of medicine.
The recommended treatment is now immediate and unquestioned “gender confirmation” of whatever gender the individual “feels” they are. Any attempt to actually treat the obvious disconnect between these individuals biological reality and their feelings is now regarded as illegal conversion therapy. In children this means beginning dangerous untested”puberty blocking” hormones, chest binders and getting in line for irreversible surgical mutilation. No questions asked.
Using “Science” to enforce your ideology through Education and Law
The next step in Canada was taken jointly by another non profit civil society organization and the highly ideological Provincial Liberal Kathleen Wynne government in Ontario using an interesting shell game. Most of the structure she put in place was brought in by Justin Trudeau’s federal Liberal’s after 2015.
The Wynne government almost wholly funded a civil society group, Egale Trust that then used questionable publicly funded research to pressure it to bring in the ideological agenda it had already prepared in advance.
The Eagle Trust was set up to fight the same sex marriage battle. After winning it in 2005 the organization ,starved of funds , was by 2011 ready to shut its doors according to an employee I spoke to, and borne out in their Tax returns. Then suddenly in 2012 they found huge new funding sources and sunny days returned. Thing is the source of this funding was the Ontario Taxpayer. The Ontario Liberals under Kathleen Wynne made it rain public money on Egalé. They went from zero taxpayer dollars in 2011 to 337 836 in 2012 rising to 1.3 million in 2013.
So among other things Eagle uses this new found wealth to, distribute and massively promote the Trans pulse project. The Trans Pulse project is funded through our federal tax dollars and from the Wesley Institute, home of Peggy McIntosh and her racist privilege theory. Another major funder being the Trudeau Foundation.
Reports from this “grassroots non profit” were presented to the the Canadian Human Rights commission and then used as a basis for the Wynne government to change the Law to allow self Gender ID to be reflected in public documents. A policy they simply needed an excuse to implement. Neat trick.
In 2015 the Trans PULSE respondent-driven sampling (RDS) survey was produced. In the words of its authors,
“Data for Trans PULSE come from community soundings (focus groups) conductedin three Ontario citiesin 2006 with 85 trans community members and 4 family members,and from a survey in 2009-‐2010 of 433 trans Ontarians age 16 and over. The Trans PULSE respondent-driven sampling (RDS) survey collected data from trans people age 16+ in Ontario, Canada, including 380 who reported on suicide outcomes. Descriptive statistics and multivariable logistic regression models were weighted using RDS II methods. Counterfactual risk ratios and population attributable risks were estimated using model-standardized risks.”
The survey asserted among other things that 35% of Trans people had attempted suicide and huge numbers suffered from clinical depression and other factors. It further asserts repeatedly that these conditions are not related directly to their gender dysphoria but rather to the level of acceptance in society.
This assertion was used to force new curriculum into k-12 education system by arguing that without forced and absolute acceptance a holocaust of suicide will follow. The familiar refrain being that we are “killing Trans children” if we do not absolutely comply. Immediate and unquestioned “confirmation” of identity is essential if we care about Trans lives. This has been used to absolutely silence dissent. Parents are accused of putting their children’s lives in jeopardy if schools are not allowed to immerse them in Gender ideology. It is used to back up debunked claims of high violence levels against Trans persons when in reality they suffer violence at a lower rate than the general population. Gas-lighting on a global industrial scale. But like all gas-lighting its based on well carefully constructed lies.
There are some very important things to know about the Respondent Driven sampling method used by Trans Pulse. RDS was first developed as part of an HIV-prevention study (Heckathorn). A series of later studies developed the methods seen today. As this is a fairly new method, there isn’t at the time of writing this article (2016) a clear consensus on what the results of RDS mean in the real world. Essentially the researcher hands out questionnaires that the respondents then pass to other people they consider part of the same group. There is then no random selection, no control group and no way to verify anything. Many researchers have questioned the validity of any result emerging from this method.
“ Respondent-driven sampling statistical inference methods failed to reduce these biases. Only 31%-37% (depending on method and sample size) of RDS estimates were closer to the true population proportions than the RDS sample proportions. Only 50%-74% of respondent-driven sampling bootstrap 95% confidence intervals included the population proportion…We recruited 927 household heads. Full and small RDS samples were largely representative of the total population, but both samples underrepresented men who were younger, of higher socioeconomic status, and with unknown sexual activity and HIV status. Respondent-driven sampling statistical inference methods failed to reduce these biases. Only 31%-37% (depending on method and sample size) of RDS estimates were closer to the true population proportions than the RDS sample proportions. Only 50%-74% of respondent-driven sampling bootstrap 95% confidence intervals included the population proportion.”

Of course this in no way stopped the Wynne, and then Canadian governments from acting on their predetermined purpose paid research to implement a preplanned ideological assault on defensless Canadian children. The idea here being that social compliance , lifelong pharmaceutics and surgical mutilation will help them live as their authentic selves.
This is all a massive gas-lighting.
The only long term study ever done on transgender people refutes Egale’s pseudo scientific assertions in whole. The “Long-Term Follow-Up of Transsexual Persons Undergoing Sex Reassignment Surgery: Cohort Study in Sweden” followed 324 Transgender persons (191 male-to-females, 133 female-to-males) from 1973 to 2003. It found that,
The overall mortality for sex-reassigned persons was higher during follow-up (aHR 2.8; 95% CI 1.8–4.3) than for controls of the same birth sex, particularly death from suicide (aHR 19.1; 95% CI 5.8–62.9). Sex-reassigned persons also had an increased risk for suicide attempts (aHR 4.9; 95% CI 2.9–8.5) and psychiatric inpatient care (aHR 2.8; 95% CI 2.0–3.9). Comparisons with controls matched on reassigned sex yielded similar results. Female-to-males, but not male-to-females, had a higher risk for criminal convictions than their respective birth sex controls.
Persons with transsexualism, after sex reassignment, have considerably higher risks for mortality, suicidal behaviour, and psychiatric morbidity than the general population. Our findings suggest that sex reassignment, although alleviating gender dysphoria, may not suffice as treatment for transsexualism, and should inspire improved psychiatric and somatic care after sex reassignment for this patient group.
The fact that despite these serious research inspired questioning of the base validity of their “settled science” not a beat is missed shows yet again that this is political ideology not health care.
Dr Lisa Littman of Brown university put out a well researched paper on Rapid Onset Gender Dysphoria. Her research was based on evidence that exposure to certain social media seemed connected to the onset of Gender dysphoria in teens. The occurrence of the phenomenon also happened in clusters, which would rule out being any sort of natural human condition. Her peer reviewed paper was greeted with a storm of criticism prompting Jeffrey Flier, Harvard University Higginson Professor of Physiology and Medicine at Harvard, and former Dean of Harvard Medical School, to opine
“In all my years in academia, I have never once seen a comparable reaction from a journal within days of publishing a paper that the journal already had subjected to peer review, accepted and published.”
other researchers shared his disgust
— Lee Jussim – Chair Psychology Department, Rutgers University “If it’s wrong, let someone produce evidence that it is wrong. Until that time, if the research pisses some people off, who cares? Galileo and Darwin pissed people off too. Brown U should be ashamed of itself for caving to sociopolitical pressure. Science denial, anyone?”
— Richard B. Krueger – Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons “Brown University’s actions in its failure to support Dr. Littman’s peer reviewed research are abhorrent.”
— Nicholas H. Wolfinger – Professor, Department of Family and Consumer Studies, University of Utah “It’s extraordinary for a dean to withdraw support for a study, especially one by an untenured researcher. This is inimical to the spirit of open inquiry. The well-being of trans youth & other sexual minorities is best served by more research, not less.”
Endocrinologists are warning about the effect of “hormone blockers” and treatments on children. The The American College of Pediatricians “urges healthcare professionals, educators and legislators to reject all policies that condition children to accept as normal a life of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex. Facts – not ideology – determine reality”. It has been revealed these disgusting ideolouges are specifically targeting autistic children.
Despite all of this conflicting science and demonstrable irreversible harm our minor children are still being propagandized with the idea that they could have been “born wrong”. Cross-dressing men are invited to teach them about masturbation in grade school and in public libraries, some of them have criminal records for sexual crimes with children, shocker. Through it all and every effort is made to usurp parental authority, both morally and legally.
“There were a total of 15 images depicting young boys between the age of five years and 16 years posing naked, performing oral sex or engaging in anal intercourse, either with other young people or adults,” the court said.”
Bunton pleaded guilty in Dec. 2018 to a charge of possessing child exploitation material in the District Court of Burbane. Justice Brian Devereaux gave Bunton leniency the during initial court proceedings in part because of comments she made to forensic psychologist, Dr. Gavan Palk, who apparently vouched for her in his report.
Thirty years ago, the transgender child would have made no sense to the general public, nor to young people. Today, children and adolescents declare themselves transgender, the National Health Service diagnoses ‘gender dysphoria’, and laws and policy are developed which uphold young people’s ‘choice’ to transition and to authorize stages at which medical intervention is permissible and desirable. The figure of the ‘transgender child’ presumed by medicine and law is not a naturally occurring category of person external to medical diagnosis and legal protection. Medicine and law construct the ‘transgender child’ rather than that the ‘transgender child’ exists independently of medico-legal discourse. The ethical issue of whether the child and young person can ‘consent’ to social and medical transition goes beyond legal assessment of whether a person under16 years has the mental capacity to consent, understand to what s/he is consenting, and can express independent wishes. It shifts to examination of the recent making of ‘the transgender child’ through the complex of power/knowledge/ethics of medicine and the law of which the child can have no knowledge but within which its own desires are both constrained and incited.
We need to rip this garbage from our education, Law, and society. Any person who has caused the unnecessary medicating or mutilation of a child needs to be brought in chains before magistrates and condemned to rot in the darkest cages in this Dominion. Anyone involved in this disgusting enterprise should be removed entirely from our bureaucracy, politics, Law government and really should be removed from our society entirely. No mercy no quarter.
I will fight this til my dying breathe for my grandchildren!
