THE APARTHEID OF SEX: Rothblatt

Featured

Who exactly is writing policy for the Ministry of Justice?

This blog is going to focus on what Rothblatt had to say about prisons. Rothblatt has a lot to say about a range of issues; as a late-transitioning transsexual with an interest in Trans Humanism. I will do a series looking at Rothblatt’s ideas across a range of topics impacting women. Women are a SEX CLASS not an “identity” for men to claim whether it is done as an act of dominance or as a refuge. We can support males who reject their masculinity but no ally would claim to be the same as a woman; especially now the damage, to women, of Gender Identity Ideology, has become apparent.

Martine lays out his vision in his manifesto for a new “sexual revolution”. I find that an interesting choice of title because, from my vantage point, this is the perfect description. This a Men’s Sexual Rights movement masquerading as the civil rights issue of our time.

A261B8D5-E068-4276-A6F6-CB58DF8E93C4

In this book he argues that the categories of male and female lead to a sort of apartheid, which is how he categorises sex segregated spaces. Martine argues that this proposals have emerged from feminist thinking. When a man like Rothblatt starts, approvingly, quoting feminism, he is either going distort it beyond recognition, or he is quoting Dick pandering, Doormat Feminism.

I did a long thread, over on twitter, about Martine Rothblatt which you can find here:

@STILLTish Apartheid of Sex

A modest proposal for the Prison System.

What does this Martine’s vision have in store for women in prison? Martine argues that the justifications for sex segregated prisons are postulated on the basis of women’s “frailty”. He argues that these claims are suspect.

B6FBD5DF-E896-44C9-B526-23FB2AE1167F

Before I continue here are some facts about the U.K Prison estate. These were published in 2020 and represent the data as of November 2019. Please be aware that, stark as the sex differences are, some of these offenders are males allowed to blame their crimes on women. Despite this, state-sanctioned, gaslighting, the male-inclusive, category of women is still a tiny proportion of the prison population. Women are less likely to be imprisoned for crimes against the person and only 2% are recorded as imprisoned for sex offending. Note that some of those “female” crimes are actually committed by males. Thanks to a recent court case we now know that there is an over-representation of male “women” incarcerated for sex offences. With such small numbers even one male added to this category of criminal offences can make a huge difference. Hence we have an entire programme on the BBC expressing horror at an 84% rise in female paedophiles. Are they female? Really? Shamefully the BBC chose not to question the data, Fairplay For Women did, see link below.

Female paedophiles rise by 84%?

He goes on to argue for his own solution to prison accommodation in a novel version of carceral feminism. Unbelievably he argues sex segregated, prisons have done nothing to stop rape in prisons. What he fails to mention is he is talking about male on male rape! (See below). Of course the Prison Industrial Complex, especially after the introduction of the profit motive, keeps costs low by providing low staff to prisoner ratios. I don’t disagree that the prison system fails to protect vulnerable, male, prisoners in the male estate. Prison reform campaigners have long argued single occupancy cells would reduce the numbers of men raped and murdered. Yet the solution selected has been to place, actual, and so called, “vulnerable” males, claiming a female identity, in the women’s estate. This has resulted in male sex offenders being housed with women, illustrating the naivete, or worse, nefariousness, of the architects of the policy. A system which denies women’s need for sex segregation and prioritises the needs of males, is a blatant example of institutional sexism.

1526B04F-FD9C-48C3-87ED-62485F1B42CB

Even worse is that final sentence. Men are to be allowed to mix with women because it may help with their rehabilitation. This is woman, as support human, territory.

FARMER V BRENNAN

Here Martine quotes a court case from 1994 where a be-penised inmate, who Rothblatt calls “her”, sued the government to be moved out of the prison where he was held. Ruth Bader Ginsberg was also involved in that case, but didn’t act for the prisoner.

CBD0ED8E-C3FD-4B24-82DD-08861E2AA17C

I took a little detour to look at the Farmer case. Dee Farmer had a twenty year sentence for credit card fraud. They appear to have been moved to a higher security prison following further offences in the prison estate. They were a pre-operative “transsexual” in terms of being penis-intact. They had been transferred to the higher security prison because of a continued pattern of criminal offences. (No violent ones were reported or sex offences against women).

62C67A74-443C-4AE7-814C-0EFC2307D1F2

Dee was moved to administrative (segregated) detention due to engaging in consensual sex, whilst HIV positive. Farmer was seeking a move to a lower security prison with less violent offenders. Ruth Bader-Ginsburg drew attention to other groups of vulnerable male offenders in the oral arguments. In my darkest (or more realistic?) moments I think the madness may end when other (Gay?) males claim discrimination because they are being treated less favourably. Maybe men will be listened to and effect some change? Policy makers and politicians are clearly comfortable with ignoring the negative impact on women.

They were not asking to be moved to the female estate having dropped an earlier petition as detailed below. Undoubtedly, were this case to be brought today, the claimant would have targetted a move to the female estate.

4D05614D-D910-4620-8156-1193DCC5F6A9

BACK TO ROTHBLATT.

Now we come to some of the practicalities of this new utopia. Here Martine has to deal with the fact that women exist, as a sex class, and the fact it is the female people who get pregnant. How does he propose to get around this? We will forcibly implant contraceptives in the women and suppress sperm production in the men. The risk of pregnancy, he argues, can be remedied by a pharmaceutical solution which he is quite happy to be “mandatory”.

82E97D85-B6D9-47E4-A057-C1E4FA77F689

Here he avoids the use of woman but reduces the inmates to their “genitalia”. The use of “accidental pregnancy” also avoids having to confront whether these pregnancies would be the result of rapes; a distinct possibility when female prisoners are forcibly confined with men. Nowhere does he address the fact that 98% of prison convictions for sexual offences are committed by the male sex or the fact the female population will be vastly outnumbered by the men.

6EBAA27B-2A03-4D94-B342-A24300975F07

In summary, Martine constructs an argument which ignores the significance of biological sex in determining likely predators and prey. He leverages the clear vulnerabilities of a pre-op transsexuals. He conveniently ignores likely vulnerability of other young males; who may be gay and also deviate from accepted performances of masculinity. Worst of all he is prepared to expose women to serious risk because he cannot bear any division between his imaginary female identity and actual women. This is the misogyny peculiar to autogynephiles.

He then proposes the barbaric, and likely illegal, mandatory contraception for women. He shows little concern this is necessitated by the higher risk of rape. As an aside he claims that mixing the sexes may encourage lower rates of recidivism, a spurious claim given that you are providing sex offenders with captive prey. These men are not known for their restraint.

This book is from 1994. Had I encountered it at the time I would have dismissed this as merely the work of a deranged mind. Never could I have imagined it as a blueprint for the future. In 2021 it is eerily reminiscient of official Ministry of Justice policy and that should enrage us all.

Irreversible Damage: Abigail Shrier

Featured

The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters  

Shrier’s book is a timely contribution documenting increasing levels of  concern over the rising rate of Trans-identifying Females. Young girls are having drastic surgeries/medical intervention, at ever younger ages, in a quest to become their “authentic selves”. Sadly, some of those young women are emerging, in their earlier twenties, to the realisation they were simply Lesbian or in flight from their sex for other reasons.  This self-knowledge sometimes comes after years on testosterone, double mastectomies  and even hysterectomies /ovary removal. 

Facts and figures on the rising numbers of these girls are included in Shrier’s book. Many of the statistics are from the UK because the NHS makes it easier to keep track of the figures.  In the US there are now tens of “Gender Identity” clinics to service the rising rates of “transgender” children /teens. This is a phenomenon across North America, Europe and Australasia. Shrier’s book documents this  with extensive references, an excellent bibliography and conversations with many people at the cutting edge. This includes practitioners working in the field or reporting on this area.  She also shares personal testimony from the young women and their parents.

I have kept quotations to a minimum because you really should buy this book! I have, however,  interspersed some links/blogs to expand, or  reference the UK context.

Censorship. 

When research papers, articles or books, are published on the phenomenon of Trans-identifying children/ teens, they are inevitably followed by calls to ban them, accompanied by attacks on the author, sackings, loss of office or sponsorship. This book is no different.

Here is Chase Strangio, from the ACLU (Americal Civil Liberties Union), calling Shrier’s book “dangerous polemic” and calling for it to be taken out of circulation.

863E533B-F491-42CC-8275-6EC01217F731The ACLU have a proud history defending Civil Liberties and Free Speech.  A legacy which has been utterly squandered by its advocacy of Gender Identity Ideology. As an organisation they appear  unwilling to accept that Women, LGB people and even Transsexuals,  have legitimate concerns about the extremist positions of Gender Identity Ideologues.  

Chase Strangio is a Transman and ACLU Lawyer.  Anyone questioning the transitioning of children seems to be perceived as an attack on Chase’s identity, as a man.  Choosing to critique a book without reading it seems to be common in this “debate” but  Chase claims to have actually read it.  This doesn’t  prevent Chase from seeking to deny other people the opportunity. This smacks of authoritarianism and is  shocking from an organisation which,  not too long ago, defended the right to free speech  for members of the Ku-Klux Clan.  

What is happening to Abigail’s book follows a familiar pattern of silencing. This happened to the work of Michael Bailey, Lisa Littman, Ken Zucker and many researchers whose work I have covered on this blog.

Lisa Littman

Lisa Littman coined the term “Rapid Onset Gender Dysphoria”. Lisa Littman spoke to parents with children claiming to be transgender. These children/teens had not shown any signs of discomfort, with their sex, during childhood, and their stories were also at odds with the experience / recollections of their parents. Diane Ehrensaft, a proponent of Gender Identity Ideology, made this statement about talking to parents (p.28). claiming it was akin to “recruiting from Klan or alt-right sites to demonstrate that blacks really are an inferior race”. I would contend that parents are demonised because we know when our children fabricate a fantasy trans-narrative. This knowledge is perceived as dangerous, as is (legal) parental responsibility, to safeguard our children from youthful mistakes. Parents who affirm biological sex are a direct challenge to ideologues, like Ehrensaft, who contend three year olds are competent to know their “gender identity”.

A tale of two sexes

Ms Shrier’s book centres teenage girls. This makes sense because young girls are emerging as the main demographic being harmed. The causes are also different for females. As a parent of one of the boys, caught up in this, I contend that, whilst there is some overlap in the causality, this is primarily a tale of two sexes. It therefore makes sense to cover boys separately. Let us hope someone takes up the challenge to look at the Transgender Craze in Our Boys. Maybe I will.

Autogynephilia

Shrier does not shy away from covering the more controversial issues accompanying Gender Identity Ideology in our society. This includes a reference to Autogynephilia (AGP) which is a male paraphilia. The love of oneself, as a woman, is the new love that cannot bear to be named. Acknowledging AGP tends to provoke narcissistic rage and backlash and explains a lot of the testeria in this “debate“.

Shrier also talks about the erosion of female only spaces (see anecdote about the bra-fiting for a teenage girl. p.143). She also covers the potential /actual destruction of female sports due to male inclusionary policies. Shrier quotes young women who told her the social cache attached to a transgender identity is in direct contrast to the disregard for Lesbians. (p.151). Why would you want to be Lesbian when it is mainly known as a category of porn? Indeed the depiction of young women, in porn generally, seems suffiicient explanation for a flight from the female sex. Looked at one way adopting a male identity is a perfectly rational response to a hostile environment.

School Policy

Shrier is also excellent on the way Transgender ideology is disseminated, particularly in schools. The same phenonemon is at play in the UK. Sometimes this is done overtly via a Transgender Policy but other times it is slipped in, covertly, under the guise of anti-bullying. To truly root it out you have to check school transgender policy but also anything referencing bullying or equality or inclusion. I am doing a series on all the policies I have found and downloaded. This is one.

School Transgender Policy 1. Brighton: Allsorts

Shrier’s also documents how parents are treated by these policies and by schools, generally.  Parents are  painted as a safeguarding risk to our children, if we don’t  immediately “affirm” a trans identity. I blogged about this here 👇 covering school policies advocating lying to parents about our children and “socially transitioning” them behind our backs. 

Putting the Loco in Loco Parentis

Another issue subject to scrutiny is the threat of suicide and the topic of transgender kids. Not just in the US but globally. This is despite the fact suicide attempts are actually no higher in trans-identifying children than other kids with mental health issues. Completed suicides are actually very rare in transgender youth but they are higher in the adult group post transition. One Swedish study, with the longest follow up time of any other study, found the suicide rate to be significantly higher than their comparator sex. You can read about this here:

https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article/file?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0016885&type=printable

2020-11-18 (2)

This is one of the longest follow up studies and points to a need for more after care and a review of the outcomes for post-operative transsexuals. This area is replete with references to suicide as evidenced by the repetition of “Better a live daughter than a dead son” . Yet discussion on post-operative mental health issues is verboten.

I wrote about suicide, in transgender youth, below.

Suicide in the Trans Community

Ray Blanchard

Shrier seems to have spoken to most of the prominent voices in this debate. Ray Blanchard is the man who coined the term Autogynephilia. He is very good on the psychological toll it takes to present as the opposite sex. I have written about this, which I call “imposter syndrome on steroids” , after observing and listening to adult transsexuals. Blanchard goes a bit “bad on both sides” re Trans Activists and Gender Critical Feminists (p. 132) but then we do appear to be, or are, critiquing his life’s work.

Medical Treatment

The book is bold and unflinching on the paucity of medical research and provides case studies on the deleterious impact of experimental, medical, solutions to a trans-identity. She points out that there is no reliable test for an innate “Gender Identity”. There is no biological marker. Detransitioners met the diagnostic criteria in the same way as did those who persist, for now, with a medicalised solution to their distress. She explodes the myth that puberty blockers are a pause and emphasises the public data which shows that 100%, put on puberty blockers, will continue to Cross Sex hormones. This is not a pause, it is the introduction to, an almost inevitable, pathway to medical transition. Shrier deals with the risks of puberty blockers (p.165); the shocking statistic of a 5 times higher rate of heart attack in females on testosterone (p. 169) and the medical complications leading to the high rate of hysterectomies after 5 years on testosterone. (p.171). She is also not afraid to name leading proponents of Gender Identity /Medical transition such as Jo Elsson-Kennedy who dismisses post mastectomy regret with this flip response “if you want breasts later on you can go and get them”. (p. 172)

Personal Testimony 

The book is packed with personal stories from parents, adult transsexuals, desisters/de-transitioners. The bulk of these are females, as you would expect, but she does also reference young males. This approach allows us to meet some of the young girls/women caught up in the Transgender phenomenon, putting flesh on the bones of the statistics, just as surely as flesh is being put on the line. We hear the voices of parents endeavouring to navigate a path to protect their children, without alienating them. This is difficult and not always successful. Young women share their stories, one on being a Butch Lesbian, who identified as trans. The anorexic who swapped pro-ana sites for transgender ones. Crucially she ends the book with stories of those who made their way back, to reconcile with their sex and, very often to their formerly estranged families. Because: There is a way back!

Cultural differences

This is clearly a global phenomenon as I have tried to demonstrate. There are also some cultural differences.  I don’t think therapy and medicalised responses to children/teenagers distress are quite as embedded in the UK.  Though I am from the North of England and we can be a bit “haven’t you got any mates?” (Crocodile Dundee Style😉)   about North American reliance on therapy. Shrier has lots to say about parenting styles and our growing impulse to step in when our children encounter difficulties. The phenomenon of Helicopter parents is less embedded in working class culture but is definitely rampant in middle class parenting.  Overall this book translates very well, to the U.K. context,  and it is eerie how much commonalty there is in the experiences of parents on both sides of the atlantic. 

In Conclusion. This is a very important book.

Queering the NSPCC? Part 9: Asexuality

Featured

The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children dates back well over a century.  It was granted a Royal Charter, by Queen Victoria, in 1895.  The NSPCC is the only UK charity which has been granted statutory powers under the Children Act 1989, allowing it to apply for care and supervision orders for children at risk.  Childline, the charity founded by Esther Rantzen, became part of the NSPCC in 2006.

Coming out as Asexual! 

The NSPCC/ChildLine content manages to have two young women who come out as Asexuals.   Their content seems to have no space for Lesbians/Gay males unless a) they don’t mention the word Lesbian b) they identify as Queer and acknowledge the fluidity of sexual attraction.  Yet this niche identity (asexual)  is given two out of the 24 videos on  LGBTQ+ content. 

Here is a transcript which covers both videos: Asexuality on Childline Yasmin and Amelia

You can watch them  here: Yasmin  and Amelia here. 

Yasmin talks us through the trauma of multiple exits from the closet and the need to educate the bemused recipients of the asexual  announcements.  People have a lot of controversial opinions about Yasmin’s experience and seem a tad confused.   I am not sure what Yasmin has, or has not, done to generate this confusion.  Apparently ChildLine seem to think this is a pressing issue to cover so they have helpfully signposted more content on asexuality to clear up any confusion. B3969325-E344-49AB-BA01-42AA750A4C4A

Amelia tells us that she also got confused after all the interrogation,  oops reasonable questions, that came her way.  This is the logical conclusion of the Queer take-over of, once venerable, Gay Rights organisations.  Pretty much everyone fits under the  Queer umbrella these days. These new identities are an insult to the very real fight to get legal protections for Sexual orientation.EB5A5874-5666-48B6-9B43-68C0CEF57DA7  

Another recurrent feature of the ChildLine content is the reckless promotion of YouTube content.  Narcissists are ten a penny on YouTube. They make their money by attracting viewers, likes and sensational/ pseudo edgy content. For many of them this is their bread and butter and the content is carefully curated to stay relevant.   Not once, in all the LGBTQ+ content, on the ChildLine YouTube,  do they offer any words of caution about the content providers they profile.  It is reckless to use Social Media Influencers in this way.  Their raison d’etre is not Child Safeguarding, it’s maintaining audience, influence  and revenue. This is not compatible with what SHOULD be the aims of ChildLine/NSPCC. 

Yasmin’s contribution is, however, nothing compared to the self-absorbed contribution from Amelia. Adolescents, or immature adults, setting themselves up as self-appointed experts, are simply not equipped to give good advice to children /teens.  Amelia is also asexual.  Below is a long excerpt to give you an idea of the word salad being dished out to gullible children.  What a load of (Judith) Butler Bollox. 👇👇

Obfuscation masquerading as Education!

So, asexuality like a lot of things to do with gender and sexuality, is something of a spectrum. Asexual is an identity on it’s own, but it’s also an umbrella term or, erm, like  a spectrum term for a wider group who have similar experiences. There’s demisexuality and grey-asexuality or greysexuality, and these are both identities that fall under  the asexual umbrella. Demisexuality is somebody who doesn’t experience sexual attraction until there’s a strong emotional bond formed. And this isn’t the same thing as like waiting till marriage or something. It’s about not feeling sexual attraction until you are entirely comfortable with someone.”

I predict a great career in Academia for Amelia. Watch out Sally Hines! The next generation is snapping at your heels.

Here is Amelia on Grey-sexuality. I am almost too bored to attempt to define grey-sexuality/grey-asexuality. Seems some people, who fall under the “ACE” umbrella, experience little or no sexuality. Even when they do experience it they may not be able to summon the energy/ inclination to act up on it. This might describe every mum with a new baby / toddler but we just called it “knackered” .

In another revealing quote Amelia seems unable/unwilling to give an honest reflection on what underpins SEXual attraction. In the world of multiple “Gender Identities” , it is an unpardonable offence to acknowledge biological sex. Here is Amelia on sexual attraction 👇Can’t say I have ever fallen in love with a voice but I am sure there is a sexual identity, to cover this, on its way. We could nominate Louis Armstrong for this one.

Lest you confuse asexuality, with people not having sex, Amelia is careful to explain that some asexual people do have relationships and sexual relationships, presumably in an asexual way. Fair play to anyone who can sustain a libido faced with this level of self-absorption!
Do not let our legislators accept this absolutely incoherent ideology as a basis for law.

Fuck The Wokerati; The Surrendered Polyamorous; The Don’t Fuck Me Pumps wearing; The Educate Yourself crowd have destroyed any joy in sexuality. Of any orientation or none.

Queering the NSPCC? Part 8: Sexual Identity and Gender Identity

Featured

The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children dates back well over a century.  It was granted a Royal Charter, by Queen Victoria, in 1895.  The NSPCC is the only UK charity which has been granted statutory powers under the Children Act 1989, allowing it to apply for care and supervision orders for children at risk.  Childline, the charity founded by Esther Rantzen, became part of the NSPCC in 2006.

Steph on Sexuality and Gender Identity. 

This is a companion piece to my previous blog on content by ChildLine. I was curious to look at what content kids would encounter if they followed Steph on their main account.  You can read the previous blog, on Steph here.   

For those of us with  children, caught up in this, it is really important to understand the evolution of this ideology and how it has been fostered in our young.   ChildLine, as it turns out, is relentless in peddling Gender Ideology, under the badge of LGBTQ+ content.  Our same sex attracted youth are therefore getting signposted to Transgender content, relentlessly,  as I hope I have shown in this series on the NSPCC. 

Steph has been given a public platform to explain their experience of being Transgender. I have expressed my misgivings about ChildLine using Social Media influencers in this way. They  may be able to control the content on their channel (which is,  in my view, bad enough) but where is the  due diligence on content only be a few clicks away?  Curious or confused children/teens will explore the content of the contributors. 

This is a transcript; which is based on various vidoes on Steph’s YouTube channel: Steph Kyriacou discusses sexuality

This is a public figure, by virtue of the NSPCC/ChildLine connection, and their own social media presence.  It is important that people are able to examine the thought processes underpinning Gender Identity Ideology.  Put crudely this is the idea some people are #BornInTheWrongBody. I regard this generation of Social Media advocates as victims of the same ideology using them as mouth pieces.  I have nothing but compassion for the young women, and men, caught up in this belief system.  However those in Senior roles, at the NSPCC, are entirely culpable for the, uncritical, dissemination of Gender Identity Ideology, to vulnerable children/teens. 

Am I bisexual? 

First up are some quotes from this YouTube video from August 2019. Am I bisexual? 

In this post, Steph acknowledges a struggle to accept their same sex attraction when they identified as a Lesbian.  Now, a post Testosterone, post double mastectomy, self-identified man, they find themselves also attracted to “men” and struggling to come out.  

So, we have a clear acknowledgment they struggled to accept their same sex attraction. There is a rather moving post about how their, Greek Orthodox, grandparents accepted them coming out as a Transgender man. Yet no parallel “coming out” story, as a Lesbian, to relatives,

A later clip from that same video explains that Steph is now struggling to accept their attraction to “men”. They made this announcement on Bi-Visibility Day. Multiple “coming outs” are a feature of many of the young Social Influencers who’s content seems mainly driven adopting new “identities”. or Sexualities.

Trans Firsts!

Here is some of Steph’s content, from September 2018, on Trans Firsts: https://youtu.be/7v6E1gkVFtU

Influenced by YouTube content, Steph went ahead and bought their first binder. In secret. Without telling another soul. Bearing in mind that the NSPCC is promoting this YouTuber and it only took me a couple of clips to access all Steph’s on line content. Other low points are a product review for “packers” i.e. a prosthetic penis which, they advise their younger viewers, are available from Sex Shops. Below is another common occurrence. The YouTubers often reference other prominent “trans guys” and how much influence they had on their own “journey”.

Dating as a Trans Guy!

Next up, also from September 2018, is a post on Dating as a Trans Guy: https://youtu.be/D0ezulmqhvg

Here are some quotes. I had to condense some of the comments but the original content is linked above so you can see I have not distorted the intent.

An unexpected development, as Steph explains, is the change to their, perceived, dating pool since coming out as a man.

I will return to the above interpretation in an earlier YouTube, by Steph.

Here Steph re-calibrates who is expected to be in their dating pool. Before identifying as a man heterosexual females were accepted as being off limits. Steph listed the multiple ways females are now identifying. Lesbians, Pan (sexual) girls, bi (sexual) girls, queer girls etc. However Steph always believed “straight” girls were off limits, until they were a “Man”.

Unlike the many male, often fully male-bodied, “Lesbians” ; who feel entitled to be in a Lesbian dating pool, Steph, now embraces? accepts? being excluded by females who are attracted to females.

This would almost be a refreshing change, if Trans-Identified males accepted their exclusion from Lesbian dating pools. What is absolutely heart-breaking is a same sex attracted female doing a reverse #CottonCeiling and prioritising their gender identity over their sex, and sexual attraction.

Steph, in this video, has a revelation about the new inclusion of straight girls in their dating pool. Its astonishing how dismissive this movement is about sexual orientation whether gay, lesbian or hetereosexual. The tone in which the “whatever, you do you, date whoever you want” has a, not so subtle, under-current of disdain for the bigotted, dick loving, straight girls.

Guess what Steph? You don’t get to decide who includes you in their dating pools. You might well find yourself excluded from Lesbian dating preferences. They love women and you are in flight from your sex and, seemingly, your sexual orientation. Personally I would exclude any male who remains heterosexual but wishes to identify as a woman. I don’t want anyone in flight from their sex in my sex life! Or anyone who fetishises my own sex, but that’s a different story.

Drunk Chat : Two Trans Guys!

Next up is from March 2017. https://youtu.be/aF-PCVqUV68 Steph and another “trans guy” are having a bit of a drunk chat about some of their social experiences and being mis-identified. I assume the intermittent burping is based on an assumption that this is what boys do? (I mean, they might but it looks a little bit performative to me…) . This video explicity tells you that you can try to teach a “Cis-Person “the right way of thinking”. Yes they really did say this. If the Cis-Person doesn’t learn and respect your identity then, apparently, you can tell them to Fuck Off! I don’t think there is any self-awareness that redefining the rest of the population as “Cis” is hardly a marker of respect for who we are….Just ARE. Not something we identify as….

This was what triggered the backlash against the Cis Community.. Somebody mistook them for Lesbians and Women. Oh The HORROR!

Coming Out via a Revolving Door!

Next up is from January 2017 and is a retrospective review of Steph’s , multiple, coming out stories. https://youtu.be/HZLKBjxzkB8

Steph had crushes on girls but did not really understand this was what they were. At age 16 they started to get asked questions from their friends about their sexuality. Friends began asking them if they were “bisexual” . Steph, at this point, is adamant that they were in fact straight. This was a very emphatic statement no doubt reflective of the lack of acceptance, in her school that Steph highlights.

Here Steph acknowledges her struggle to accept her Lesbian sexuality at age 16. This is still such a difficult time for young people; who can be aware of being different long before understanding their sexual orientation. While Stonewall are busy, chasing the Trans Dollar, they are ignoring the homophobia, which never went away. It is still incredibly difficult to come to terms with same sex attraction. Those of us with gay offspring know this. We would have welcomed better sex education in school to foster acceptance of different sexual orientations. However this opportunity has been squandered because of the nefarious inclusion of “Gender Identity Ideology”. The new sex education is actively harmful for our gay youth. I would go to prison before I would accept the compulsory indoctrination of our kids in Queer Theory. Here is some research on the negative impact of homophobia on Gender Identity.

Homophobic Bullying & Gender Identity

As you can see above. Steph followed a familiar path in first identifying as Bisexual and then finally acknowledging their exclusive sexual attraction to females. HALLELULAH!

It did not last long, sadly. Steph gives us a detailed, if somewhat convoluted, explanation about ditching the label Gay Woman to identify as non-binary. This was a stepping stone to identifying as Queer; because if you don’t identify with either sex how can you be homosexual?

Next up in the mulitple identity disorders, Steph finally identifies as a Trans Man.

As Steph says, they have come out multiple times over the period of six years. The final irony is, in order to embrace their same sex orientation, they identify as a man attracted to other men. It turns out this includes transmen. Hey presto. You can identify as a gay man, keep your queer label and choose someone from the same sex as your partner. Turns out this is exactly what Steph did. Acknowledged their attraction to male, met a boy they liked. Boy then became their boyfriend. I had a look and the new boyfriend was another YouTuber, Nate, who is also a trans man.

We are through the looking glass.

Queering the NSPCC? Part 7: Trans Identity

Featured

The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children dates back well over a century.  It was granted a Royal Charter, by Queen Victoria, in 1895.  The NSPCC is the only UK charity which has been granted statutory powers under the Children Act 1989, allowing it to apply for care and supervision orders for children at risk.  Childline, the charity founded by Esther Rantzen, became part of the NSPCC in 2006.

Trans Identity :  Steph 

You can watch it here

You can read a transcript here Trans Identity Steph

Here Steph talks, to Cora,  about the need for Trans Visibility and the difficulties of being “trans” .  These were highlighted by a  list of perceived injustices and lots of instructions about how to be a Trans Ally.  The abuse that Steph relates is  focussed on being perceived  as female and treated  accordingly.  This is an important point. Recognition of biological reality is not a learned prejudice.  It’s hard-wired. It’s evolutionary.   It’s not akin to racial prejudice or other socialised bigotry.  It’s a basic recognition system.   This is how Steph defines transphobic behaviour. 👇

The interviewer responds with statistical reports of how unsafe “trans” people feel at school. If this includes “misgendering” calling it abuse is a stretch. At this stage school children are not going to be on cross-sex hormones (normally) under the age of 16.  Hence females who wish to be recognised, as male,  are demanding we validate an identity at odds with biological reality/appearance. 

20E013D1-58FC-4F42-A1AC-2B139D0CB036

Whilst many people argue we should just  #BeKind, because this is just  simple courtesy,  in reality we are asked for a lot more  than maintaining a polite fiction. The nature of these demands soon becomes more explicit. Steph regards sex segregated spaces as an affront to their identity.  Therefore they demand that the  privacy and dignity of both sexes should be sacrificed to appease  a tiny minority,  who feel at odds with their biological sex. I would suggest it is no accident that a member of the female sex is presenting this argument. We all know these arguments sound very different when the advocate is a pre-op male.  Once again #SexMatters and this is the reason  a female person, is frequently wheeled out  to demand that women & girls give up our boundaries. 

Steph is typical of proponents of Gender Ideology who constantly intones some version of “Educate Yourself” . We have heard this many times so guess what Steph? We did exactly that and what we learned did not reassure us. Not. One. Iota.

This is a rather gentle introduction which begins with a suggestion that any re-education begins gently.. but “and then if they refuse to listen, you can just block them”

It is well worth counting up how many times we are enjoined to educate ourselves; whilst being presented with incoherent narratives to explain what being Transgender encompasses. Some people may identify as male or female. Some identify as neither. Some move between male and female and are Gender Fluid. Some will have surgery and hormones, others either or neither. We are being asked to believe six impossible things before breakfast.

Not content with proselytising this ideology personally Steph also demands State sponsored “education” which inculcates children in Gender Identity Ideology.

In fact transgender guidance packs are being rolled out to most schools. Yet so many of them have been removed because they have been found to be unlawful, particularly around legal duties under the , legally, protected characteristic of Sex. It is concerning to see the NSPCC endorsing this ideology and completely ignoring the significant impact on the rights of girls.

Already Local Authorities have been forced to withdraw the guidance they have been placing in schools. Warwickshire, Cornwall, Shropshire, Barnsley are just a few of the councils who have withdrawn their guidance. This followed complaints/ Legal Challenge. Organisations like Safe Schools Alliance and Transgender Trend have been at the forefront of challenging this guidance. I have read multiple packs myself and wrote this blog about how they treat parents. Putting the Loco in Loco Parentis. Cannot stress enough to CHECK THE SCHOOL GUIDANCE.

Another striking , and worrying, aspect of the ChildLine YouTube are the alerts to what they believe is related /appropriate content.

Here Steph talks about being in an environment, where they are not respected and understood. The context is not honouring preferred pronouns and Gender Identity. What pops as suggested content? An article about suicide by another ChildLine Contributor. The use of the suicide narrative is a deeply problematic aspect of the campaigns for “Transgender Children’s” rights. I have written about this here. Suicide in the Trans Community

Here is another link to suggested content. 👇

We have already established the low bar for defining things as “Transphobic” but here ChildLine suggests content on dealing with “Hate Crime”. The afore-mentioned School packs on “Transgender Guidance” are also overly keen to badge benign comments as Hate Crimes and some even include a form to facilitate reporting staff and pupils to the police! In the guidance written for Cornwall the pack is even co-written with a serving Police Officer & Transphobia is highlighted as a crime! 👇

Here the ChildLine lines up more content on Transgender Issues. These signpost medical transition for non-binaries and one promotes access to Puberty Blockers.

I covered Alex Bertie and Charlie Martin, talking about Puberty in an earlier part of my series on NSPCC/ChildLine Content. On Steph’s personal YouTube account we learn it was Alex Bertie who first attracted Steph to binding their breasts. Alex Bertie was also promoting a specific brand , of binder, on their youtube account.

This content I also covered. Fox Fisher is a well known Trans Activist. Mr Lewzer is a trans-identifying female who has a following for comedic content; where they pose as their bearded mother. I know from my own offspring that Mr Lewzer’s content is very popular with Gender Confused teens.

My next piece will be a look at the belief system of this ChildLine contributor. The NSPCC seems to have a strategy of harnessing the Social Media presences of these young people. Unfortunately many of them have content that is deeply damaging to confused children /teens. Indeed many of the ones with Gender Identity Issues appear to have significant struggles of their own. Children are being directed to content which seems to immerse them in the topic. Nowhere does the NSPCC. raise concerns /flag that YouTube content is not always a reliable source. In fact, many of their interviewees sing the praises of YouTube content. This is not entirely surprising since many of them make money, even a living out of their content.

Queering the NSPCC? Part Three: Coming Out Stories

Featured

Lesbian Erasure?

ChildLine : Coming Out Stories

0CEE6DC4-22AD-4A6E-8772-35552BF58CAF

In the third of my posts on the NSPCC, child protection charity, I looked at Coming Out Stories, involving three females and one male.  Callum is a gay male. One of the females identifies as assexual , one bisexual and , despite watching this, and transcribing it, I still don’t know what the final girl identifies as. 😳. This is a video about coming out and , as far as I can tell, Maja didn’t actually come out as anything!  What was noticeable was, out of the three females, not one came out as Lesbian. 

Here is a link to the youtube https://youtu.be/wzw6rGDMqX0

Here is a transcript: ChildLine Coming Out stories Transcription

First question is directed at Calum. He is given, by far, the most air time in this piece. He was aware of his sexuality at a young age and began talking about it, age 8. He soon realised his class mates were not receptive and retreated back into the closet until his early teens. When he did come out, to his parents, they had a hard time accepting it. Calum is thoughtful about his parents attitude and offers a generous interpretation of his parents attitude Whether or not his assessment is overly kind they did get over their misgivings and, thankfully, all is resolved with his family.

Next up is Amelia. Amelia is assexual. She explains that she didn’t realise this until other teenagers started talking about sex. At first, she claims, she thought they were just talking about sex because adults and people on the television were talking about it. When the penny dropped that they actually wanted to have sex she realised her identity. There’s a lot of giggling at this revelation. I am sceptical whether a teenage girl could be so naive about sexual desire but ,as they say, this is her, self-proclaimed, “lived experience”.

Next up is Jenny. She came out as bisexual by casually dropping it into conversation with friends and family. The response, she says is basically “cool”. Only later, when the interviewer, Declan, probed for more negative reactions does she reveal less positive reception. Not abuse, just querying her claim to be a bisexual, whilst in a relationship with a heterosexual male. There’s a bit of baffled incomprehension that people can be so ignorant and Jenny, cue laughter, explains

E7E3B5C6-9873-4506-B03E-B723111E35DB

Next up is Maja. Her experience was that her family never assumed she was straight so she never really needed to come out. If you watch the whole thing you will find that she never actually comes out, in this video, either.

902BE539-C514-4881-AE17-9BB62FA4B7E5

The really positive thing about this video is that all seem to have had relatively easy times coming out (or not) to friends and family. Coming out, as not being into sex p, is a new one for sexual orientations. I suspect most parents would be sanguine about an assexual teenage daughter. It’s unlikely to be high on a list of fears for their daughters, Most of us likely expect a change of heart but that’s another matter.

Another notable feature of the interview is the need to elicit reports of negative reaction. Amelia, the assexual, does urge caution in coming out, in case of abuse or enforced homelessness. I don’t dismiss the vulnerability of sexual minorities to parental rejection, particularly those from some religious homes. I am not sure, however, there are any faiths which would cast you out for being assexual. However I remain concerned that the same may not be true for homosexual teens. Amelias listed the groups vulnerable to prejudice, when coming out, and included trans but didn’t reference Lesbians. Is it only Lesbian love which is the love that dare not speak its name?

Sexual Fluidity.

Maja proffers. another explanation for the lack of an explicit coming out. #SexualFluidity. This is a new narrative, which conforms to Gender Identity Ideology, that sexual orientation is not fixed. On one level letting young women have time to embrace their sexuality seems uncontentious but it does sit uneasily when Lesbians and, to a lesser extent, gay males are being told their, exclusive, Genital preferences are prejudiced and can be overcome. E72A1969-8727-451D-BB81-0FF417CB79B5

This interpretation of sexual orientation is further elaborated by Calum who shares a tale which also claims sexual orientation is not fixed. There is debate about the origins of sexuality , nature v nurture etc. However Gay Rights Activists gained protected status on the basis their sexual orientation was not simply a (lifestyle) choice. 👇

B8991C65-BB7F-49FB-BB47-B293C50C76CB

Overall I am left with more than a vague unease that no Lesbians figure in these coming out stories. There also seems to be a worrying lack of confidence to claim an incontrovertible same sex orientation.

Stop Press 

Further to publishing this article I have been informed that the Calum, featured here, is a YouTuber in his own account. Notorious for faking this homophobic attack covered in this article https://attitude.co.uk/article/british-youtube-star-calum-mcswiggan-hospitalised-following-suspected-homophobic-attack/11201/

He was subsequently discovered to have made a false allegation https://www.washingtonblade.com/2016/06/29/police-say-gay-youtuber-faked-hate-crime/

I also had a look at his YouTube account and found some more interesting content https://youtu.be/ur46Kx8V7XA

Calum apologises for associating Men with Penises and Woman with Vaginas. He warns his audience that if you express disgust at vaginas you never know if the Gay Man next to you has a vagina. He further assures his audience that he would include them in his dating pool.

.He also weighed in on the recent, manufactured, controversy after JK Rowling stated some basic facts about biology and same sex attraction.

We need a new Gay Liberation Front. One unashamed to defend same sex orientation. Hence LGB Alliance.
