Medical Malpractice: Another “Detransition” Story

This is just one example (hat-tip to John Davidson) of the many regarding “pop-medicine” driven by culture (much like lobotomies). It is a fad that harms and destroys lives permanently. (Click graphic to enlarge)

This story is one that compliments my “TRANSGENDER PAGE” — here is a PJ-MEDIA post on the issue (Mar, 2021):

People who formerly identified as transgender and took cross-sex hormones or underwent transgender surgery have later come to regret their transitions and the serious damage they did to their own bodies, urged on by the medical establishment. On March 12, the Detrans day of awareness, these detransitioners have come forward to tell their stories.

“I experienced transition regret. I had injected testosterone for four and a half years, I underwent a double mastectomy, only to very gradually realize over time that I had made a massive mistake and wanted to detransition,” Sinead Watson, one of the organizers of the Twitter campaign #DetransAwarenessDay, said in a YouTube video.

“The people who experience transition regret are subject to an utterly undeserved stigma. We’re very often bullied, and insulted, and silenced whenever we try to share our experiences online, and it’s because people who discuss transition regret are often accused of having our stories and our experiences weaponized to harm our trans brothers and sisters. That’s not what I want,” Watson added.

Watson clarified, “We don’t want to take health care away from trans people. We want the improvement of care for people with gender dysphoria.” She acknowledged that transition has helped many people, but she insisted that “there are also a growing number of people who went through medical transition who deeply regret it, who were harmed by it, physically and mentally, and we deserve the right to talk about our experiences, just as much as someone who doesn’t regret it has a right to talk about their experiences.”

She insisted that people who suffer from transition regret are terrified to speak out because “they will be insulted, they will be laughed at, they will be mocked… they will be told they’re hateful.”

She argued that the medical community pushes medical transition as a one-size-fits-all approach to gender dysphoria (the persistent and painful condition of identifying with the gender opposite one’s biological sex), but not everyone who suffers from gender dysphoria needs medical transition. She suggested there should be a broad array of different treatment options.

Watson partnered with Keira Bell, a 23-year-old woman who was put on experimental so-called “puberty blockers” after having been referred to a British transgender clinic at age 16. Late last year, Britain’s High Court ruled in Bell’s case that young teenagers could not consent to life-altering transgender treatments. The two detransitioners teamed up with Detrans Voices, Detrans Canada, and Post Trans, to support #DeTransAwarenessDay.

“Detrans day of awareness (12th March) was created to raise awareness and break down the stigma around detransition,” Watson, Bell, and the organizations said in a statement. “We want to let other people who have detransitioned know that they are not alone. There is a flourishing community of detransitioned people who are finding peace, healing and fulfillment as they are.”

  • 6 Child Abuse Victims Who Grew to Reject the Transgender ‘Bullsh*t’ (PJ-MEDIA, Sep 2018)
[….]

A woman who identifies herself as “Helena,” a 22-year-old “detrans gender apostate,” posted photos of herself before and after her detransition.

“I identified as trans for 5 years, and took testosterone for 17 months. I began detransitioning [in] February 2018. [Transitioning] was a way to cope with my trauma and body hatred. 3 years later i’m thankful to TRULY live authentically, no longer running from myself,” she wrote.

“I transitioned FtM with testosterone injections and a double-mastectomy,” a detransitioner named Grace shared on Twitter, showing pictures from before and after her detransition. “It was a bandaid for deeper pain, and I regret it. Detransition was humbling and healing for me. I’m so glad to have found hard-won peace and acceptance for myself as a woman.”

Royal Gnosticism Displayed By the “Religious Left”

Clay Travis and Buck Sexton cover the recent Microsoft Employee Introductions during the company’s recent “Ignite” conference. This is a shorter version of a longer clip (LONG VERSION HERE), but the point of introducing “royalty” I thought deserved a segment of its own. I include the call by the blind gentleman.

A couple posts on the topic for the people who want to follow up on this:

  • ‘I’m a Caucasian Woman:’ Microsoft Event Highlights the Future of Woke Capitalism (VOICES OF A NATION)
  • ‘WTF Is This’? Microsoft Security Podcasters Introduce Themselves By Race, Gender, And Hairstyle (In Case You Couldn’t Tell By Looking At Them) (TWITCHY)
  • Microsoft Mocked for ‘Utterly Bananas’ Employee Introductions (RED STATE)

And a few weeks ago I heard something by Michael Knowles said at a DAILY WIRE symposium (DAILY WIRE BACKSTAGE: LIVE AT THE RYMAN) that really hit home with me. You always hear about “Leftism” being “religious,” or environmentalism being a “stand in religion,” and the like. This in my mind’s eye give the Postmodernist/Gnostic combo a real metaphysical “umph.”

Michael Horton defines some of the old vs. new aspects of “Gnosticism” (WAYBACK MACHINE). And Voddie Baucham describes how the Critical Race Theorists use it to “know” what is racist: “Voddie Baucham – What Is Ethnic Gnosticism?”

  • (Reform Wiki) In this clip, Pastor Voddie Baucham explains his phrase, “Ethnic Gnosticism,” which is the concept that certain people have a secret knowledge about racism because of their ethnicity.

Trans “Women” vs. Women | John Stossel

Trans women compete in women’s sports and many win. Is that fair?

Just a quick aside. The trans body lifter that lost in the Olympics lost because HE was 43-years old. If HE had been a younger, healthier dude, he would have most likely won. And the point is HE took a spot away from a female going to Japan. See some of my other posts:

 

Social Dysphoria… Great Inner Battle Led To Detransitioning

(RIGHT SCOOP hat-tip) “I haven’t really had an issue with my body, in the sense of wanting to have the female parts to be removed, I was just in general insecure,” she says. “I think I had more social dysphoria than actual gender dysphoria.”

Rand Paul Questions “Dr.” Rachel Levine (Plus: Steven Crowder)

Sen. Rand Paul questions Dr. Rachel Levine on gender transition for minors with gender dysphoria.

Rand Paul was in a hearing today with the weirdo Rachel Levine. We think he did pretty well… you know, being a real Doctor and all. Plus, Steven has a great rant at the end!

If you doubted Biden’s extreme Left agenda, wait until you meet assistant health secretary Rachel Levine. (LGBTTQQFAIPBGD7@bRs?PLWb+2Z9A2)

The Transgender Craze in Teen Girls (Abigail Shrier)

Exposing the Reality of the Transgender Craze in Teen Girls | Abigail Shrier | WOMEN | Rubin Report

Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Abigail Shrier (author of ‘Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters’) about the sudden explosion of gender dysphoria in teenage girls, the failure of Target to censor her book, how schools are sneaking gender identity education into anti bullying programs, and why therapists and parents who question transgender science or gender affirming surgery are putting themselves at risk. Abigail first discusses how easy it is to get books banned in 2020. All it took was a couple of comments on Twitter for Target to evoke modern day censorship and pull the book from its shelves. Abigail says how the book got back on shelves and why so many people are hungry for honest discussions about trans issues.

She discusses the skyrocketing rates of teen girls that have what Lisa Littman has labeled ROGD (rapid onset gender dysphoria). Most of these teenagers may just be experiencing mental health issues and are being directed to HRT (hormone replacement therapy), testosterone injections and transgender surgery. Abigail talks about how ideas like non binary and gender identity are being taught in the public school system and are even being taught to some kindergarteners. She shares materials that have been leaked to her from teachers who are too afraid of being accused of transphobia or losing their job for daring to question the propaganda written by activists. Abigail also reveals how activists wisely included trans issues under programs designed to stop bullying instead of in sex education where parents have the power to opt their children out of.

She also discusses how most of the parents that have spoken with her are progressive politically, but feel like their families are under attack and now feel politically homeless. Abigail discusses how any parent or therapist who strays from the gender affirmation model risks losing their child or their job. She reveals how trans rights activists inserted gender identity language into conversion therapy laws that were intended to protect gay kids. These conversion therapy laws can now cause a therapist or doctor to lose their license for not affirming and supporting transition. She also reveals what is hidden from most teens, how hard it is to actually transition. Transitioning means committing to a lifetime of injecting hormones, testosterone, the negative side effects of puberty blockers, and possible sterility.

Men Can Menstruate? (#Science)

Dennis Prager’s FIRESIDE CHAT (found on YOUTUBE as well) discusses the reality of nature (or Nature’s God) on a video series he does. (I say “nature” because whether you believe in a theistic Creator or that millions of years of evolutionary forces and chance has honed the species to survive by being “male and female” by reproduction… then both are objective looks at reality and the Left is #antiscience.) I include – for context – a portion of Steven Crowder’s dealing with the topic Prager mentions in passing (the fuller video of my excerpt can be found here).

Dennis wrote an article on the issue as well, it can be found here: “The Left-Right Divide Is About Reality Itself,” a must read in my opinion.

FAITHWIRE and LIFESITE NEWS have some decent articles up as well. But this should be a good video to show just how nutty the Left really is… and it is to compliments another audio I am working on.

The End of Women’s Sports

Selina Soule was one of the top five female high school sprinters in Connecticut… until competing against biological boys changed the game. Now, women aren’t just losing their races — they’re losing their chances to compete at all. Why is this happening? And what should we do about it?
