The Evil Insanity of Gender Identity, Part One: Transgenderism and Child Sacrifice [Video]

Transgenderism, children

The recent case of one James Younger has once again brought critical attention to the so-called ‘transgender rights’ movement madness which has gripped society with astonishing speed. Perhaps some of you haven’t heard about James, a 7-year-old boy embroiled existentially against his will in a divorce settlement with some very unusual details.

This case takes place in Dallas, Texas with James’ biological father, Jeffrey Younger who is trying to keep his soon-to-be ex-wife from forcing young James to “transition” to becoming a “girl.” In a Dallas family court, it was ruled by a jury on October 21, 2019, that sole custody of James should go to the wife, Dr. Anne Georgulas, which would make her the sole authority over medical decisions for her son.

The following video gives the father’s reaction to that jury verdict.

Fortunately, the judge in the case, Kim Cooks ruled on October 24, that both parents would have joint custody including both having a say in medical decisions. However, there were some other ‘requirements’ of the jury decision placed upon Mr. Younger and it is unclear whether any or all of these have been removed.

Court Mandated Madness

The reason some other legal restrictions may or may not remain in place against Mr. Younger is that Judge Cooks also placed a gag order on all the parties involved so that no information is disclosed to the press until after the proceedings have concluded. However, there are some details of the original jury decision from October 21 which are known.

Buck Sexton, who read the original court order, said during his podcast of October 22, 2019,

The court has enjoined this father, Jeffery Younger, that he is not allowed to dress his son in boys’ clothing… that he’s not allowed to try and convince his son that he is, in fact, a boy and will be a normal boy… not allowed to have the son around anybody…friend or family member who might [do the same]. [He also] has to use female or gender-neutral pronouns in public [and] is not allowed to call him James, he has to call him ‘Luna.’

Transgenderism, insanity“Luna” is the name James’ mother branded him as when she decided that James was indeed a ‘transgender’ person years ago. Dr. Georgulas made this life-changing decision based on a then 3-year-old infatuation with a female Disney character.

The process of ‘transitioning’ would begin with James receiving puberty-blocking drugs as early as 10 years old. These would be followed by administering cross-sex hormones, testosterone for women and estrogen for men.

Little is known about the effects of such a regimen on children. What is known is not good news for the child.

This is far from benign, since taking puberty blockers at age 12 or younger, followed by cross- sex hormones, sterilizes a child.

What studies there are have necessarily focused on the side effects of cross-sex hormones on adults who have ‘transitioned.’ Children’s bodies are less stable than adults, and these and other harmful effects are likely to be magnified greatly with the application of such ‘treatments.’

From studies of adults we know that the risks of cross-sex hormones include, but are not limited to, cardiac disease, high blood pressure, blood clots, strokes, diabetes, and cancers.

Once the hormone therapies have been applied the next step is surgery. Girls who persist in insisting they are really boys would undergo a double-mastectomy as early as 16 years of age, followed later by altering their female “bottom parts” to appear as male parts.

Boys would wait a year or two longer, by current practices, before having their genitals sliced off and beginning the process of altering the appearance of that area to resemble female genitalia.

These new physical accouterments will not function as they would if that person was naturally male or female. In other words, men ‘transitioning to women’ do not menstruate, even after surgery, regardless of the political correctness of a particular sanitary napkin retailer, or social media outlets’ insistence otherwise.

Transgenderism, child abuseThis is what the child of seven, James Younger, still may have to look forward to in the near future. His hormone ‘treatments’ aren’t supposed to start until he’s about 10, and who knows what may happen in the courts before then.

The Younger case is but one of a multitude of attacks against biological reality by advocates of a fantasy world where delusional nightmares are promoted as normal expressions of family life. Moreover, James Younger is not the only or even the youngest victim of disturbed adults who seemingly look forward to poisoning and mutilating their toddlers and teens.

Dr. Michelle Cretella, executive director of the American College of Pediatricians. …“…first began hearing from distraught parents in this situation in 2016 and in 2017, I heard from seven families in as many different states in this situation. In all but one case the child was a 15 year-old girl who never had any sexual identity confusion prior to her parent’s divorce,” Cretella said. “The other case involved 4-year-old triplet boys whose mother desperately wanted a girl. The mother was a psychologist herself and had cross-dressed one of the boys for two years, insisting that it was his idea. In each of the seven cases the guardian ad litems and judges removed the right to medical consent and/or custody from the parent who objected to transition with puberty blockers and hormones.”

Child Sacrifice to Satisfy Insanity 

There is a very disturbing factor lurking within this increasing trend to subject very young children to a tortuous ‘transitioning’ process. It is the strong tendency, if not 100% fact, that whenever these incidents of pushing the youngsters into transgenderism and likely physical harm, we also see that one or both of the parents are either ‘trans’ themselves or ‘trans-rights’ activists.

These ‘parents’ have the right to their own notions of how they act out their bogus assertions of gender for themselves. They are adults living in a mostly free society, and in America, everyone has the right to their own opinion.

TransgenderismHowever, that right also comes with a bucketload of responsibilities crucial for any free society to exist. Prime among them is the obligation any person has to consider whether or not their exercise of a particular right can damage another person’s individual rights.

It is obvious that the parents have little regard for the physical and psychological damage they are doing to the child when they advocate ‘transitioning’ to the opposite gender. The immediate question is “Why?”

There are three basic answers to that question. One: They don’t know or understand the dangers of ‘transitioning treatment,’ to the child.

That answer would be a bit disingenuous since the methods of such treatment are well-known in the ‘trans rights’ community. Two: The parents are deluded into denial of these hazards and believe they are helping the child.

This response indicates that the parent(s) are mentally disturbed themselves, and unfit to make such serious decisions for their child. Three: They are aware of the dangers yet insist on putting their child at risk believing the ‘benefits’ for the child are worth it.

That possibility is perhaps the most disturbing of all because, in reality, the mental health benefits are basically zero, and the physical damage is truly incalculable. It indicates a personality so desperate for self-affirmation that it demands the child be not simply in agreement with their ‘gender identity’ parent(s), but the child must be biologically transformed to the same physical state as the disturbed adults around him or her.

The child’s health is every area is thus sacrificed for the uses of the ones who should be their protectors. Thus the little boy or girl has their childhood and future destroyed on the altar of transgenderism.

The fruits of this evil insanity are also manifested beyond the individual sacrifice of children. In part two of this series the impact on wider society with the rapid growth of the ‘trans rights’ movement in recent years.

As Jesus Himself notes,

But from the beginning of creation ‘God made them male and female’  Mark 10:6 ESV

That is the only ordering of creation that is right and proper and blessed by God. America, yea even the world, attempts to change that fact at our own peril.

Epstein, the Left and Sexual Abuse of Children [Video]

32486624217_88200b021a_k

There is one advantage to the Leftist displays of lunacy in recent years. It is revealing to more people than ever how insane the Left actually is.

However, there is also a decided disadvantage in acquiring this knowledge. It is when one discovers just how depraved Leftist insanity has now become.

Such knowledge stirs emotions ranging from disgust to anger, especially when it concerns those who are helpless among us. We learned this anew when the newest charges against wealthy Leftist Jeffery Epstein were revealed recently.

This convicted pedophile is now facing further charges and perhaps some real hard time, not the 13 months of light-duty he received before. In fact, most commentators expect that Epstein could take several high-profile Democratic stars down with him, most of all former President Bill Clinton.

The author of “Trafficking,” Conchita Sarnoff appeared on Fox News where she destroyed Bill Clinton for his denial statement being involved with Jeffrey Epstein. Sarnoff dropped a huge bomb by establishing not only did Bill Clinton ride Epstein’s plane 27 times and many without secret service, but the pilot logs establish many underage girls were riding those flights as well.

Panic on the Left

Bill Clinton, Jeffery EpsteinThe Left is practically in panic mode because of these revelations. They realize that the fallout from the Epstein affair could seriously damage their hopes of regaining the White House.

Consequently, the Leftmedia has taken care to make sure that President Trump is mentioned in association with Epstein at every opportunity. The one huge problem is that not only is there no evidence of any association as the only dealings between the two was when Trump had Epstein thrown out and banned from his Mar-a-Lago hotel.

Patterson had another revelation about whether or not Trump had knowledge of Epstein’s disgusting activities.

At another point in the interview, Patterson said he “knows Trump didn’t know” about Epstein’s alleged criminal activity.

However, Trump’s Secretary of Labor Alex Acosta has been under the gun because he was the prosecutor involved in Epstein getting a sweetheart plea bargain in 2008. Acosta has tendered his resignation as Labor Secretary in light of that revelation.

President Trump announced he did not have any involvement of Acosta resigning and he came to that decision on his own. Trump told ABC, “He’s doing this not for himself, he’s doing this for the administration.”

Chuck Schumer, Jeffery EpsteinThe Left is also furiously trying to use this episode with Acosta to keep the focus on Trump and away from the Leftist power brokers they adore. One example features the lovable (?) Senator Chuck Schumer [D-NY] calling for Acosta’s resignation to deflect from the rather substantial amount of money Epstein donated to Schumer’s political aspirations.

The New York senator and entities that are linked to him received a grand total of around $22,000 from the accused sex trafficker, The New York Post reported.

It will be interesting to see in the coming weeks just how many names of influential Leftists will be discovered as close associates and companions of this billionaire sex trafficker. Moreover, it should not be surprising that Leftists use and abuse children since they have routinely been doing so in their own political and cultural arenas for quite awhile.

Leftists Child Sex-Abuse Reaches Beyond Epstein

Some may point out that Epstein is not representative of the Left as he is only one person. Of course, this ignores the grave implications of the Clintons and various other celebrities of Leftist bent having close associations with Epstein.

However, there is far more evidence implicating the Left in pedophilia and other types of child abuse.  For instance, there is an entire Leftist organization dedicated to normalizing pedophilia called the North American Man-Boy Love Association, or NAMBLA.

North American Man-boy Love Association

So there is no confusion, the “love” part of the name refers specifically to the sexual attraction male pedophiles have toward underage boys. They openly advocate for the normalization of “consensual” sexual relationships between adult males and underage boys and campaign for the reduction or elimination of age-of-consent laws.

Here is one of the arguments they use to justify their existence:

Most man/boy relationships are based on mutual respect and affection, and strongly desired by both partners. Such relationships do not harm anyone, and often entail many benefits for both man and boy. Boy-lovers and boys alike respond to the needs of those they love — needs for affection, understanding, and freedom.

However, a fascinating video from a 2009 “Hannity” episode gave a bit of an inside look at NAMBLA from someone who infiltrated the group. The video quality is poor but the message is very clear and disturbing.

Jennings was appointed by then-President Obama in 2009 and served as “Safe Schools Czar” for 18 months before he stepped down in 2011, presumably so as not to make Obama’s re-election campaign more difficult.

Kevin Jennings, a homosexual activist who has served in the U.S. Department of Education as the “Safe Schools Czar” for the last 18 months has stepped down, with some saying Jenning was pushed out for fear that his unsavory past would become an issue in the 2012 elections.

A more recent example of pedo-promotion occurred just last month in a tweet which is no longer available on Twitter as the account has been suspended. The account belonged to Amos Yee, a refugee who came to America seeking political asylum in 2016, which he received in 2017.

Mr. Amos Yee, for the record, is a pedophile himself who on Dec. 6, 2018 posted a photo of a pre-pubescent girl on Twitter with the comment “How does one not become a pedophile?” He wrote a tweet on June 11, 2019, which reads,

Children enjoy sex, whether that’s between themselves or someone their age or even better yet someone who’s mature and can guide them through sex. Sex between an adult and a child doesn’t always = rape. Pedos need to be accepted. #LGBTQP #Pride 2019

Pedos need to be accepted?! Seriously? This is an obvious attempt to normalize pedophilia, and Yee is one of many on the Left who want such normalization to happen.

PedophiliaIn fact, prominent Leftist publications such as Salon magazine have promoted the idea that there exist “virtuous pedophiles,” in several articles from 2015. Moreover, a New York Times op-ed writer advocated on October 5, 2014, that pedophilia should be protected as a disability under the law!

The Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 prohibit discrimination against otherwise qualified individuals with mental disabilities, in areas such as employment, education and medical care. Congress, however, explicitly excluded pedophilia from protection under these two crucial laws. It’s time to revisit these categorical exclusions. …

These episodes are a few revelations of how those guilty of heinous crimes against children prey on the young with the support of the Left. Moreover, there is another movement that has gained massive support from the Left which exploits and physically harms very young children, the movement for “transgender rights.”

Leftist Political Action for The Torture of ‘Transitioning’ Children

This journal, along with many others, has repeatedly warned of the dangers of ‘transgenderism’ to society as a whole and to children in particular. Here is a movement of child sex abuse that has received active promotion by past President Obama.

This happened in 2016 with the…

granting of federal government approval of the ‘transgender rights’ cause. This was accomplished by former President Barack Obama in 2016.
“The Obama administration is sending out an edict today [5/13/2016] to every school district in the country, insisting they open bathrooms, locker rooms, and showers to all children, regardless of sex, or risk federal discrimination lawsuits and yanked federal funds. Schools must treat children as transgender and thus entitled to open facilities access as soon as parents say they are, not after a medical diagnosis or birth certificate change.”

Some might ask why transgenderism should be included as sexual child abuse. I would ask another question in response.

Transgenderism

“How is a societal and political movement which encourages children as young as 3 or 4 to ‘identify’ as the wrong sex, eventually take dangerous drugs as ‘puberty blockers’, followed by injecting dangerous ‘cross-sex hormone’ chemicals and finished by surgical destruction of sex organs be anything other than the sexual abuse of children?”

This is simply a process of slow torture for the child, dooming that child to a lifetime of confusion, depression and eventual suicide for almost half its victims. It also involves the powerful adult imposing their fantasy onto the child as early as possible to give the child little room to escape.

An excellent piece in Thinkr’s online magazine goes through the entire process in cold detail and makes the following observation.

The age at which each of the phases commences is getting continually lower. This decreases the likelihood that children will be able to consider a different course. They will be hemmed into a particular course of action far before they are emotionally, psychologically, and socially developed enough to realize the ramifications of their feelings.

The Left owns this issue, as even a casual observer can see. However, it must also be admitted that the Christian community has experienced more than its share of cases of child sex abuse.

The Question of Child Abuse by Christians

I’m going to address one objection which will undoubtedly be raised against the crux of this article. “What about Christians, like Catholic priests, or Protestant ministers who have been guilty of sexual abuse of children? They’re not a bunch of Leftists, are they?”

There are two incorrect assumptions within those kinds of questions. First, there is the assumption that Catholics and Protestants are not Leftward leaning at all.

Pedophilia, ChurchThat is not the case, as this journal has noted in several articles. Perhaps a majority of these organizations are conservative, however, a substantial minority of them are what I have called the Leftward Church.

Second, and more importantly, is the false assumption that the sexually abusing children is approved and accepted by the conservative Christian community. Incidents of such abuse have been hidden by church authorities, which is precisely the point.

While sexual abuse of the young may happen within Christian and conservative circles, it is roundly condemned and punished there when it becomes known. It is because of such condemnation and punishment that these acts are hidden by the abusers.

The Left is not trying to hide this agenda at all. As has been noted above, many are not only open about it, both pedophilia and transgenderism are being celebrated by the Left and pushed toward normalization in society and through the law.

It is vital that these efforts by the Left at normalization of child sex abuse are resisted with all the fervor which we can muster. Moreover, such resistance should begin by calling upon the LORD’s grace and mercy for not resisting the Left, and pleas that He help us stand for righteousness against the fury of the Left.

Why then has this people turned away in perpetual backsliding? They hold fast to deceit; they refuse to return. I have paid attention and listened, but they have not spoken rightly; no man relents of his evil, saying, ‘What have I done?’ Everyone turns to his own course, like a horse plunging headlong into battle. Jeremiah 8:5-6 [ESV]

The Inevitable Tyrannical Inequality of The Equality Act [Video][Update]

The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed a piece of legislation with the deceptive title of “The Equality Act.” This title is not simply an inaccurate representation of the act itself, it is, in fact, a large step toward codifying strict societal inequality.

HR-5 is the designation given to “The Equality Act,” which was passed on May 17, 2019, in the House. It now heads to the U.S. Senate where the prospects of passage are somewhat bleak.

However, this should not be taken as either the final word by the government nor as a solid victory if the legislation does not pass. HR-5 is a harmful expansion of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to include sexual orientation and gender identity as protected classes of people.

This effort is extremely dangerous and potentially deadly for the innocent victims of ‘trans-fraud’, the helpless children. Children whose lives will be needlessly traumatized and for almost half of them will result in death by their own hands.

Why Is This Happening Now?

This journal has recorded the steady progress of so-called ‘transgender rights’ movement in the current culture in several articles. What was once universally known as a serious mental illness has become enshrined as some sort of human ‘right’ in popular, leftist culture today.

The question which arises when considering the current in-your-face promotion of transgenderism is just how did this happen? Put another way, why is this complete about-face happening now, as compared to just seven years ago, when there was no political support for the issue and very little indication that the popular culture would embrace it?

Three key events since the end of 2012 which have enabled those in favor of ‘transgenderism’ to boldly crusade for a slice of the newly created additions to established human rights. The first was a little reported action in 2013 which granted a measure of legitimacy to ‘transgenderism.’

The Diagnostics and Statistics Manual is the “bible” of psychiatric diagnosis.

In the pre-2013 DSM-IV, anyone “identifying” as other than their biological gender had Gender Identity Disorder. As a “disorder,” it was a mental illness. Today, due to political and cultural pressure, the DSM-V calls this condition Gender Dysphoria. Such a classification is not considered a mental illness. Rather it is considered a kind of psychological discomfort and confusion. This is how mental illness can be masked as a difficult, but “normal,” reality.

18818913278_cea20fe699_mThe second was virtually a cultural event, well-publicized and celebrated on the Left. It was the revealing and popularizing of a very famous celebrity as a ‘transgendered’ person in 2015.

Transgenderism rocketed to social popularity with the ‘transition’ of Bruce Jenner from a male to appearing as the ‘female’ Caitlyn Jenner. He appeared on the cover of Vanity Fairmagazine’s, July 2015, issue. He was also celebrated on ESPN’s Espy Awards later in 2015. Since then he has greatly enhanced the cultural status of the transgender movement.

The third and final event was the granting of federal government approval of the ‘transgender rights’ cause. This was accomplished by former President Barack Obama in 2016.

The Obama administration is sending out an edict today [5/13/2016] to every school district in the country, insisting they open bathrooms, locker rooms, and showers to all children, regardless of sex, or risk federal discrimination lawsuits and yanked federal funds. Schools must treat children as transgender and thus entitled to open facilities access as soon as parents say they are, not after a medical diagnosis or birth certificate change.

These events and a relentless campaign of Leftist intimidation and virtue-signaling have brought America to the “Equality Act.” The consequences of passing this tyrannical insanity are dire and reach far beyond sexuality and gender confusion.

Tyrannical Inequality Is Inevitable Under the “Equality Act”

Should the “Equality Act” become law, inequality and total tyranny will follow sooner rather than later. In fact, various forms of tyrannical behavior are afoot even now and it is targeting traditional Judeo-Christian beliefs.

One of the most recent examples of such action occurred this past Wednesday, June 12, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Watch as a street preacher of the gospel is denied his freedom of speech and religion by the state.

Note that it was the peaceful preacher who was the victim of harassment and assault, yet he was the only one arrested. This demonstration of force by the police violated this man and his small group’s rights and manifested both tyranny and inequality by their unequal enforcement of the law.

This man was guilty of nothing except offering the gospel of Jesus Christ to a group of gay pride demonstrators. Perhaps the most salient point in the video was made by one Christian commenting to the camera after the pastor was arrested.

We did not form a mob, a mob was formed against us.

This is the consistent method of the Left on virtually any subject nowadays, especially concerning the LGBT issue. Form a “mob” of one kind or another and attack by emoting rather than engage in reasonable discussion.

46182496122_8560c4025d_mHowever, the facts, in this case, uphold the actions in the video, and we will see this descend upon America with force should the “Equality Act” become established as law. Here are some of the disastrous consequences that would follow.

  • the category of male or female) would be altered to include (undefined) “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” everywhere the word “sex” appears in federal non-discrimination law. …

  • It would force compliance of the radical (and lunatic) LGBT agenda into every person’s life – in businesses, public accommodations, jury selection, schools, hospitals and clinics, social life, even churches!

  • It writes into federal law radical concepts (“sexual orientation” and “gender identity”) and creates a protected class for people with a psychiatric disorder (“gender dysphoria”).

  • It gives only minimal, vague definitions for the terms “sexual orientation” and “gender identity,” guaranteeing that legal chaos will ensue. For example, many radicals consider pedophilia a “sexual orientation” – which could end up becoming protected!

  • Goodbye to freedom of religion on LGBT issues. Many have noted that religious speech critical of “sexual orientation and gender identity” could be considered unlawful discrimination. Not even churches will be exempt as they could be considered “public accommodations” (“a place or establishment that provides … gathering…; any establishment that provides a good, service, or program”).

The Most Vulnerable Are the Potential Victims

[Update] In another example of how far the Left will go to push the insanity of transgenderism, the exploitation of mentally handicapped individuals is not out-of-bounds for their malevolent agenda.

In a clip released by CNN you will see how the Left is now pushing Down Syndrome individuals into drag in order to make money off of them. We can tell the Down Syndrome people are not interested in the drag aspect, but enjoy the attention they get on stage. What the left is doing is absolutely disgusting and abusive for taking advantage of the weak in our society.

That video clip is now labeled as “no longer available,” and thank the LORD for that! I saw it two days ago but delayed the update for this reason. I work directly with mentally disabled people including some with Down Syndrome. When I first saw this, I was incensed and for a bit, my mind was filled with some unChristian thoughts toward the purveyors of this abuse! I needed to take that to prayer and let the LORD work on my attitude before I published this update.

Anyone who has followed the continual push for so-called ‘transgender rights’ knows that it is the most vulnerable among us, the children, who are the targeted victims. These advocates are not content with adults mutilating their bodies in obedience to signals from an ill mind.

670021031_931e226cdb_mThus it is the children who are placed as priority candidates for insane actions because mentally disturbed adults must justify their fetish-like obsession. These adults, in some cases even the parents are, wittingly or no, targeting their toddlers for the destruction of their psyche and a short-lived, hellish existence on earth.

Why would any truly loving parent visit this on their young children? The answer is that no loving parent in their right mind would subject their children to such abuse.

A prime example of this is taking place now in the U.K. where a mentally ill couple is engaged in helping their 5-year-old son ‘transition’ to become a girl. This couple consists of a 21-year-old heterosexual woman and her companion, a 27-year-old woman named “Greg” who has ‘transitioned’ to the appearance of a man.

Greg claims their five-year-old son is “adamant she is a girl,” citing the boy’s affinity for dressing up as a princess from the popular Disney film “Frozen.” “They say it’s cruel we let her wear a dress but is it not more cruel to do nothing when you’ve got a kid who’s so adamant she’s a girl she’s ripping her hair off and banging her head off the walls?” said Greg.

What seems obvious is that this child of only five years has imagined he wants to become a girl and the ‘parents’ have never discouraged this, in fact, they have only encouraged and strengthened his nascent resolve. The instability and insecurity of the adults are condemning this child to a horrible life without a chance of even experiencing childhood.

Moreover, sane and loving parents would respond to this boy’s angry displays with a firm hand and the hair-pulling and head-banging would cease. If the behavior continued afterward, the next step would be to seek medical help and treatment for possible mental illness from a responsible doctor who knows the facts about children’s whims.

…the American Psychological Association’s Handbook of Sexuality and Psychology admits that prior to the widespread promotion of transition affirmation, 75 to 95 percent of pre-pubertal children who were distressed by their biological sex eventually outgrew that distress.

However, that will never happen because it would mean the parents would have to admit that they themselves are mentally ill and are inflicting their illness upon the child. Moreover, in the U.K. transgender ‘rights’ advocates are celebrated both politically and culturally dooming the boy ‘Jayden’ to grow up under enormous pressure to follow-though and begin harmful hormone treatments in a few years even if he changed his mind and decided against ‘transitioning.’ 

This is not a problem confined to Europe. There are various examples of such sentiment in America as well, as I wrote in a previous post.

There are also some in America specifically targeting children as young as 4 years old. This tactic began to surface about 3 years ago in custody battles during divorce proceedings.

Dr. Michelle Cretella, executive director of the American College of Pediatricians. …“…first began hearing from distraught parents in this situation in 2016 and in 2017, I heard from seven families in as many different states in this situation. In all but one case the child was a 15 year-old girl who never had any sexual identity confusion prior to her parent’s divorce,” Cretella said. “The other case involved 4-year-old triplet boys whose mother desperately wanted a girl. The mother was a psychologist herself and had cross-dressed one of the boys for two years, insisting that it was his idea. In each of the seven cases the guardian ad litems and judges removed the right to medical consent and/or custody from the parent who objected to transition with puberty blockers and hormones.”

Puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones are not well-studied and thus the harmful side effects are also not well-known. The physical damage of these potent and potentially dangerous drugs was not considered by the judges or the mother in this case.

6936743236_8ec5a03b63_mIt is noteworthy that the punishment from the judge was aimed at the guardians or parents “who objected to transition with puberty blockers and hormones.”! States ranging from California to South Dakota have presented legislation which would make empower insanity and make normal, loving parents outlaws pitted against their children.

The “Equality Act” would ensure this disturbing behavior as legal nationwide and doom children as young as three or four to the vicious whims of adults who cannot grapple with biological realities. Parents who object would watch the child ripped from their arms and placed with others who were more in line with the Left and its demented views.

Our society has now come to a point of no return, a cultural crossing of the Rubicon with the ‘transgender’ movement and its implications. The “Equality Act” must be defeated in the Senate and if it [heaven forbid] reaches the President’s desk, it must be vetoed.

If not, there may come a time very soon when Christians of conscience will have to defy the law in order to save children and show the better way of Christ to them and to the lost and disturbed adults involved as well.

Then children were brought to him that he might lay his hands on them and pray. The disciples rebuked the people, but Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 19:13-14 [ESV]

The Inevitable Tyrannical Inequality of The Equality Act [Video]

Equality Act LGBT

The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed a piece of legislation with the deceptive title of “The Equality Act.” This title is not simply an inaccurate representation of the act itself, it is, in fact, a large step toward codifying strict societal inequality.

HR-5 is the designation given to “The Equality Act,” which was passed on May 17, 2019, in the House. It now heads to the U.S. Senate where the prospects of passage are somewhat bleak.

However, this should not be taken as either the final word by the government nor as a solid victory if the legislation does not pass. HR-5 is a harmful expansion of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to include sexual orientation and gender identity as protected classes of people.

This effort is extremely dangerous and potentially deadly for the innocent victims of ‘trans-fraud’, the helpless children. Children whose lives will be needlessly traumatized and for almost half of them will result in death by their own hands.

Why Is This Happening Now?

This journal has recorded the steady progress of so-called ‘transgender rights’ movement in the current culture in several articles. What was once universally known as a serious mental illness has become enshrined as some sort of human ‘right’ in popular, leftist culture today.

The question which arises when considering the current in-your-face promotion of transgenderism is just how did this happen? Put another way, why is this complete about-face happening now, as compared to just seven years ago, when there was no political support for the issue and very little indication that the popular culture would embrace it?

Three key events since the end of 2012 which have enabled those in favor of ‘transgenderism’ to boldly crusade for a slice of the newly created additions to established human rights. The first was a little reported action in 2013 which granted a measure of legitimacy to ‘transgenderism.’

The Diagnostics and Statistics Manual is the “bible” of psychiatric diagnosis.

In the pre-2013 DSM-IV, anyone “identifying” as other than their biological gender had Gender Identity Disorder. As a “disorder,” it was a mental illness. Today, due to political and cultural pressure, the DSM-V calls this condition Gender Dysphoria. Such a classification is not considered a mental illness. Rather it is considered a kind of psychological discomfort and confusion. This is how mental illness can be masked as a difficult, but “normal,” reality.

18818913278_cea20fe699_mThe second was virtually a cultural event, well-publicized and celebrated on the Left. It was the revealing and popularizing of a very famous celebrity as a ‘transgendered’ person in 2015.

Transgenderism rocketed to social popularity with the ‘transition’ of Bruce Jenner from a male to appearing as the ‘female’ Caitlyn Jenner. He appeared on the cover of Vanity Fairmagazine’s, July 2015, issue. He was also celebrated on ESPN’s Espy Awards later in 2015. Since then he has greatly enhanced the cultural status of the transgender movement.

The third and final event was the granting of federal government approval of the ‘transgender rights’ cause. This was accomplished by former President Barack Obama in 2016.

The Obama administration is sending out an edict today [5/13/2016] to every school district in the country, insisting they open bathrooms, locker rooms, and showers to all children, regardless of sex, or risk federal discrimination lawsuits and yanked federal funds. Schools must treat children as transgender and thus entitled to open facilities access as soon as parents say they are, not after a medical diagnosis or birth certificate change.

These events and a relentless campaign of Leftist intimidation and virtue-signaling have brought America to the “Equality Act.” The consequences of passing this tyrannical insanity are dire and reach far beyond sexuality and gender confusion.

Tyrannical Inequality Is Inevitable Under the “Equality Act”

Should the “Equality Act” become law, inequality and total tyranny will follow sooner rather than later. In fact, various forms of tyrannical behavior are afoot even now and it is targeting traditional Judeo-Christian beliefs.

One of the most recent examples of such action occurred this past Wednesday, June 12, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Watch as a street preacher of the gospel is denied his freedom of speech and religion by the state.

Note that it was the peaceful preacher who was the victim of harassment and assault, yet he was the only one arrested. This demonstration of force by the police violated this man and his small group’s rights and manifested both tyranny and inequality by their unequal enforcement of the law.

This man was guilty of nothing except offering the gospel of Jesus Christ to a group of gay pride demonstrators. Perhaps the most salient point in the video was made by one Christian commenting to the camera after the pastor was arrested.

We did not form a mob, a mob was formed against us.

This is the consistent method of the Left on virtually any subject nowadays, especially concerning the LGBT issue. Form a “mob” of one kind or another and attack by emoting rather than engage in reasonable discussion.

46182496122_8560c4025d_mHowever, the facts, in this case, uphold the actions in the video, and we will see this descend upon America with force should the “Equality Act” become established as law. Here are some of the disastrous consequences that would follow.

  • the category of male or female) would be altered to include (undefined) “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” everywhere the word “sex” appears in federal non-discrimination law. …

  • It would force compliance of the radical (and lunatic) LGBT agenda into every person’s life – in businesses, public accommodations, jury selection, schools, hospitals and clinics, social life, even churches!

  • It writes into federal law radical concepts (“sexual orientation” and “gender identity”) and creates a protected class for people with a psychiatric disorder (“gender dysphoria”).

  • It gives only minimal, vague definitions for the terms “sexual orientation” and “gender identity,” guaranteeing that legal chaos will ensue. For example, many radicals consider pedophilia a “sexual orientation” – which could end up becoming protected!

  • Goodbye to freedom of religion on LGBT issues. Many have noted that religious speech critical of “sexual orientation and gender identity” could be considered unlawful discrimination. Not even churches will be exempt as they could be considered “public accommodations” (“a place or establishment that provides … gathering…; any establishment that provides a good, service, or program”).

The Most Vulnerable Are the Potential Victims

Anyone who has followed the continual push for so-called ‘transgender rights’ knows that it is the most vulnerable among us, the children, who are the targeted victims. These advocates are not content with adults mutilating their bodies in obedience to signals from an ill mind.

670021031_931e226cdb_mThus it is the children who are placed as priority candidates for insane actions because mentally disturbed adults must justify their fetish-like obsession. These adults, in some cases even the parents are, wittingly or no, targeting their toddlers for the destruction of their psyche and a short-lived, hellish existence on earth.

Why would any truly loving parent visit this on their young children? The answer is that no loving parent in their right mind would subject their children to such abuse.

A prime example of this is taking place now in the U.K. where a mentally ill couple is engaged in helping their 5-year-old son ‘transition’ to become a girl. This couple consists of a 21-year-old heterosexual woman and her companion, a 27-year-old woman named “Greg” who has ‘transitioned’ to the appearance of a man.

Greg claims their five-year-old son is “adamant she is a girl,” citing the boy’s affinity for dressing up as a princess from the popular Disney film “Frozen.” “They say it’s cruel we let her wear a dress but is it not more cruel to do nothing when you’ve got a kid who’s so adamant she’s a girl she’s ripping her hair off and banging her head off the walls?” said Greg.

What seems obvious is that this child of only five years has imagined he wants to become a girl and the ‘parents’ have never discouraged this, in fact, they have only encouraged and strengthened his nascent resolve. The instability and insecurity of the adults are condemning this child to a horrible life without a chance of even experiencing childhood.

Moreover, sane and loving parents would respond to this boy’s angry displays with a firm hand and the hair-pulling and head-banging would cease. If the behavior continued afterward, the next step would be to seek medical help and treatment for possible mental illness from a responsible doctor who knows the facts about children’s whims.

…the American Psychological Association’s Handbook of Sexuality and Psychology admits that prior to the widespread promotion of transition affirmation, 75 to 95 percent of pre-pubertal children who were distressed by their biological sex eventually outgrew that distress.

However, that will never happen because it would mean the parents would have to admit that they themselves are mentally ill and are inflicting their illness upon the child. Moreover, in the U.K. transgender ‘rights’ advocates are celebrated both politically and culturally dooming the boy ‘Jayden’ to grow up under enormous pressure to follow-though and begin harmful hormone treatments in a few years even if he changed his mind and decided against ‘transitioning.’ 

This is not a problem confined to Europe. There are various examples of such sentiment in America as well, as I wrote in a previous post.

There are also some in America specifically targeting children as young as 4 years old. This tactic began to surface about 3 years ago in custody battles during divorce proceedings.

Dr. Michelle Cretella, executive director of the American College of Pediatricians. …“…first began hearing from distraught parents in this situation in 2016 and in 2017, I heard from seven families in as many different states in this situation. In all but one case the child was a 15 year-old girl who never had any sexual identity confusion prior to her parent’s divorce,” Cretella said. “The other case involved 4-year-old triplet boys whose mother desperately wanted a girl. The mother was a psychologist herself and had cross-dressed one of the boys for two years, insisting that it was his idea. In each of the seven cases the guardian ad litems and judges removed the right to medical consent and/or custody from the parent who objected to transition with puberty blockers and hormones.”

Puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones are not well-studied and thus the harmful side effects are also not well-known. The physical damage of these potent and potentially dangerous drugs was not considered by the judges or the mother in this case.

6936743236_8ec5a03b63_mIt is noteworthy that the punishment from the judge was aimed at the guardians or parents “who objected to transition with puberty blockers and hormones.”! States ranging from California to South Dakota have presented legislation which would make empower insanity and make normal, loving parents outlaws pitted against their children.

The “Equality Act” would ensure this disturbing behavior as legal nationwide and doom children as young as three or four to the vicious whims of adults who cannot grapple with biological realities. Parents who object would watch the child ripped from their arms and placed with others who were more in line with the Left and its demented views.

Our society has now come to a point of no return, a cultural crossing of the Rubicon with the ‘transgender’ movement and its implications. The “Equality Act” must be defeated in the Senate and if it [heaven forbid] reaches the President’s desk, it must be vetoed.

If not, there may come a time very soon when Christians of conscience will have to defy the law in order to save children and show the better way of Christ to them and to the lost and disturbed adults involved as well.

Then children were brought to him that he might lay his hands on them and pray. The disciples rebuked the people, but Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 19:13-14 [ESV]

Quote (gender)

“I encourage all girls to go to school. The days of the uneducated house wife are over. There is no girl who will have an opportunity to work in a bank, a big media institution, Government office, or business if she has not gone to school. To occupy an important position in any service, you need to be educated.” (Romilia Quotes)

Woman to woman

Woman and the family;
Woman and the world;
What are you doing
For other women, woman?
Are you helping
To empower other women?
Or weakening other women;
Do you open the way
For other women?
Or you are blocking
The way for other women?
Do you gossip about
Other women?
Criticize other women?
Run down other women?
Or appreciate,
Praise, uplift
And encourage other women?

“The place of the woman is in the kitchen.”

As a little boy, I started hearing “The place of the woman is in the kitchen.” I don’t hear it much these days. Many people think it discriminates against women, and frown at it; but there are still many people who hold uncompromisingly that the place of the woman is in the kitchen; that women are to be seen and not to be heard.

Some actually go beyond mere talking to put an embargo on any attempt by their wives to become career women or get any kind of paid job outside the home.

And it may surprise you that it’s not men alone who hold this view. Some women agree and say a woman should not get office work for a salary but should stay at home and take care of it and her family.

Of course, evidently, this makes the woman dependent on her husband for all her financial needs with all the humiliation that will definitely go with it.

Have you heard this debate in your community? What is your take on it? Are there disadvantages when a married woman is working in an office outside her home?

Is being a woman equivalent to being a house-help?

What role are women and girls playing in their homes especially in third world countries? Are they supposed to be slaves in their own homes just because they are women?

This is the issue which we look at in an upcoming post. Watch out for it. Don’t miss it.

Together, let’s look at the place of women and girls as well as boys and men in today’s world especially in third world countries.

The Left’s War on Science, Part 3: The Transgender Tragedy [Video]

 

LGBT protest

There has been a meteoric rise in the acceptance of transgenderism as a human right. It has garnered enough support from the Left that to question transgenderism is to be ‘transphobic’ and disqualified from the discussion.

The tragic fact is transgenderism is worse than unscientific. It produces substantial harm to individuals and the general public. The Left has adopted this to further a cultural narrative, regardless of the tragic consequences.

A Man Becomes a Woman and a Dragon

There is actually a man who ‘transitioned’ to appear female and went on to ‘transition’ to appear as if he were a dragon. This man’s name is Eva Tiamat.

He is featured in an article from the left-wing publication, “Vice.” The author also has ‘transitioned’ from male to the appearance of a female.

The author spent a day with the dragon lady and came away impressed. Eva revealed that he had been abandoned and brutalized as a child and young adult.

Eva had also fathered a child and recently contracted HIV. He decided to attempt becoming a ‘she,’ but found that didn’t ease his trauma.

So, he chose to attempt to become other than human.

Tiamat has undergone extreme body modification to become a dragon. Her ears and nostrils have been removed, her eyes are stained green, and she is covered in implanted horns and tattooed scales. Tiamat no longer looks human.

I have seen a photo of Eva Tiamat and there is one thing the interviewer got right, he no longer looks human. Worse, this is becoming mainstream and has been elevated to the status of legally protected human rights.

Transgender ‘Rights’ Are Becoming Legal Rights

The ‘transgender rights movement’ has gained widespread acceptance in popular culture. In fact, it is now routinely claimed that transgenderism is a basic human right.

Transgenderism rocketed to social popularity with the ‘transition’ of Bruce Jenner from a male to appearing as the ‘female’ Caitlyn Jenner. He appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine’s, July 2015, issue.

Caitlyn Jenner

Jenner accepts ESPY award

He was also celebrated on ESPN’s Espy Awards later in 2015. Since then he has greatly enhanced the cultural status of the transgender movement.

Another key to cultural acceptance has been the rapid affirmation by social media on the internet. Perhaps the most infamous has been the 56 new gender categories offered by Facebook in recent years.

More alarming is the swift enshrinement of transgenderism as a legal right. This has been a trend first seen in Europe at the beginning of the 21st century.

On several occasions dating back to 1986 (Rees v UK), the European Court of Human Rights declined to get involved, but this changed in 2002 when the court held that there was a legal right to transgenderism that nation states had to recognise (Goodwin v UK).

Since then, nations in Europe, South America and recently Canada have joined the legalization train. Full legalization of transgender ‘rights’ began in Argentina.

Argentina broke ground in 2012 with a law that is considered the gold standard for legal gender recognition: anyone over the age of 18 can choose their gender identity, undergo gender reassignment, and revise official documents without any prior judicial or medical approval, and children can do so with the consent of their legal representatives or through summary proceedings before a judge.

Pro-transgender rights laws

There are more than 20 nations with such laws that allow legal recognition of anyone who claims to be a transsexual, even if there has been no surgical alteration. The United States has seen this movement gain legal approval in various states, beginning with Oregon.

…the state of Oregon is now giving out ID at birth with an ‘x’ in addition to a mark for ‘boy’ or ‘girl.’ It is called a non-binary identification. In other words, biological reality can be ignored by the parents and the government.

Transgenderism Is Unscientific and Delusional

Until the year 2013, it was understood that a person who wanted to attempt changing from one sex to another was mentally ill.

The Diagnostics and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, or DSM, is the “bible” for psychiatric diagnosis. In the pre-2013 DSM-IV, anyone “identifying” as other than their biological gender had Gender Identity Disorder. As a disorder, it was a mental illness.

The current designation in the newest DSM classifies this sexual identity crisis as Gender Dysphoria. Thus is insanity normalized to start a new human rights movement.

Transgender protestAs a disorder, it was diagnosed that those asserting they were ‘trapped in the wrong sex’ were ill. Why? Because it meant denying a basic reality of existence.

Biology tells us that sexual identity is determined at the start of gestation in the womb. We are simply male or female at the genetic level, and that doesn’t change.

DNA doesn’t lie and isn’t malleable. You are what you are and it is delusional to believe otherwise.

Of course, we didn’t need science to tell us who was who a thousand years before science was formalized. We haven’t required genetics to determine what sex our child is since humanity came to be.

Yet today it is risky to enlighten transgender proponents about reality. As those who have publically dared to do so can attest, it quickly invites the wrath of the Left.

However, it is far riskier not to assert reality for that submits substance to the whim of emotion and feeling. That factor makes transgenderism very dangerous to a free society.

Transgenderism Is Dangerous to Free Society

Jordan Peterson

Jordan Peterson

One of the nations named above, Canada, has begun to experience significant resistance to its law favoring transgenderism. It requires referring to a transgendered person by the gender pronoun of their choice.

This resistance has come primarily from one man, Jordan Peterson. He resists this law because it requires him to use “gender-neutral” pronouns when referring to transgendered people.

Dr. Peterson is a clinical psychologist and a professor of psychology at the University of Toronto, Ontario. He is a bestselling author and has become an internet sensation accumulating 1.4 million subscribers to his YouTube channel.

Peterson’s argument centers on the issue of free speech. He believes the Canadian legislation is a case of government suppressing speech it doesn’t agree with.

Canada’s new gender-neutral language requirement is spreading to their southern neighbor, the United States. Peterson has a warning for America concerning this.

If you are wondering, reasonably, why any of this might be relevant to Americans, you might note that legislation very similar to Bill C-16 has already been passed in New York City. Authorities there now fine citizens up to $250,000 for the novel crime of “mis-gendering” — referring to people by any words other than their pronouns of choice (including newly constructed words such as zie/hir, ey/em/eir and co).

The ‘trans’ agenda seeks to legislate liberty away, beginning with free speech. This is patently lethal to a free society.

Public schoolsIn public education, the Obama regime sought to normalize this by removing the distinction between the sexes in bathrooms and locker rooms. Some businesses, most famously Target stores, have embraced this with public bathrooms.

Incidents of pre-surgical males claiming the transgender mantle invading women’s and girls public bathrooms have occurred. Their claim is really all that is needed and we are to be certain that none of these are waiting to prey on children.

But we don’t have to envision that scenario. So-called authorities in the field are already using transgenderism to devastate little children.

Transgenderism Is Destructive to Children

The most disturbing aspect of the transgender movement is the targeting of children. This has now invaded our public education system at the level of grade school.

Grade school indoctrination is but the first step. As pre-pubescent children accept the ‘gender fluidity’ fairy tale, they become naturally curious.

The curiosity of these toddlers is encouraged toward transgender expression by the teachers and school administrators. Inevitably, as they grow a portion of those children will mimic what seems to please the adults in charge.

Transgender proponents wait for this moment and are prepared to exploit it. The next step is encouraging whatever children are curious and assuring them they are indeed transgender and should begin the process of ‘transitioning.’

Then shameless adults move the child toward ‘modifying’ their bodies to become the opposite sex. There are at least 45 clinics that specialize in transitioning pre-teen children through puberty.

Gender Identity ClinicsThe clinics function both as specialists in the physical procedure and as cells to recruit likely candidates among the children and their parents. Author Ryan T. Anderson gives a description of this horrifying truth.

Inside the clinic parents are presented with a Trans for Tots regime where one size fits all. A three–year–old that just finished toddling, but is sexually wise beyond his years will begin “social transitioning.” The child gets a new name, new gender and starts playing for a new team as he lives as the opposite sex. As the child approaches puberty… the child is given a drug cocktail for life that blocks the onset of puberty and as Anderson terms it, “traps the child in a prepubescent body.” …Then as early as the freshman year of high school the process of producing the right body begins. Puberty blockers are traded for hormone treatment. As the 18th birthday approaches — earlier for some particularly zealous surgeons — surgical reassignment is possible. Although the new euphemism for this is irreversible body vandalism is “gender affirmation surgery.”

The drugs administered to these children have not been well-studied and evaluated for probable harmful effects that will result. The side-effects of puberty blockers are almost wholly unknown, and it is worth noting that these are not drugs tested and approved by the FDA.

There Is No Turning Back for the Children

Danger for childrenBy the time the drugs are administered, it is too late to back out. Deceitful physician advocates assure the faint-hearted that these blockers are reversible.

The truth is these doctors don’t know what will happen if the child stops taking these drugs. However, that fact doesn’t even slow down the tragic process.

Nor has the process stood still. For example, to bolster the false claims of a ‘safe’ gender ‘reassignment,’ doctors in the U.S. are performing medically unnecessary double mastectomies on teen girls. Moreover, American tax dollars are paying for these actions under the rubric of scientific study.

The National Institutes of Health granted multiple millions of dollars for a very slanted and flawed study of the effects of puberty blockers by one Dr. Johanna Olson of Children’ Hospital of Los Angeles. She decided to go further in this experiment.

Olson decided to see how dysphoric girls felt about mastectomies. Referring to “chest dysphoria” and “chest reconstruction,” apparently avoiding the word “breast” because it connotes the stubborn biological reality of being female …Olson had 68 surgically diminished girls fill out her “novel” scale (which she acknowledged could be bogus) between one and five years after their surgery. Thirty-three of these girls were under 18 at the time of surgery. Two were only 13 years old, and five were only 14.

Olson claimed that almost none of these girls regretted their mastectomies. However, since they were all interviewed only five years or less afterward, long-term regret and harm were disregarded.

Moreover, a cardinal rule of scientific studies is that a control group must be part of such research. Without a control group, a study will only reveal one side of the equation and give a manipulated result.

Olson did not use a control group in the studies on puberty blockers or the effects of slicing off female breasts. This is unscientific and any results garnered from it are false and harmful and potentially destructive to all children in America and around the globe.

This Tragic Evil Can Be Combatted

Tragic tearJust when activist pseudo-science seems to have the upper hand, new research has brought additional ammunition against this tragic agenda. Researcher Lisa Littman has identified a phenomenon named “Rapid Onset Gender Dysphoria,” in a 2018 scientific study.

The research was concerned with a rapid increase in numbers of teens and young adults who were identifying as transgender without any history of such desires. There were even groups of people declaring trans-status together.

The conclusion? ROGD seems to occur more because of “social and peer contagion,” than some early gender confusion.

Other scientific facts can also be marshaled to the fight.

…the American Psychological Association’s Handbook of Sexuality and Psychology admits that prior to the widespread promotion of transition affirmation, 75 to 95 percent of pre-pubertal children who were distressed by their biological sex eventually outgrew that distress.

This reveals it is far likelier a child who is gender-confused is experiencing a temporary condition. If left to natural processes of growth, the normal behavior will return.

God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created them; male and female He created them.  Genesis 1:27 [NASB]
