Coming to Terms with Reality


Worth repeating: The religious right wanted to “pray away the gay.” Now, the progressive left wants to “trans away the gay,” and gay man and lesbians who defend gender nonconforming gay kids from the new medical-conversion therapy are labeled “transphobes” and “TERFS”—or worse.


Added:


Very true: “‘Trans conversion therapy’ … is essentially an endorsement of gay conversion therapy.”

Disagreeing with Transactivists Is ‘Violence’

Many progressive young people have been convinced by gender ideologists that voicing opposition to radical transactivism is “violence” that must be suppressed.

Or maybe the tide is turning, and least in some places:

Exposing the Fallout of Medically Transitioning Minors

As the evidence of destroyed lives keeps mounting, woke LGBTQ+ activists choose not to see or hear what’s happening, secure in the destructive narrative they continue to promote.

Jamie Reed provides deeply disturbing examples of “how little patients understood what they were getting into,” for example:

Three months later she called the surgeon’s office to say she was going back to her birth name and that her pronouns were “she” and “her.” Heartbreakingly, she told the nurse, “I want my breasts back.” The surgeon’s office contacted our office because they didn’t know what to say to this girl.
My colleague and I said that we would reach out. It took a while to track her down, and when we did we made sure that she was in decent mental health, that she was not actively suicidal, that she was not using substances. The last I heard, she was pregnant. Of course, she’ll never be able to breastfeed her child.

She also writes:

Then I came across comments from Dr. Rachel Levine, a transgender woman who is a high official at the federal Department of Health and Human Services. The article read: “Levine, the U.S. assistant secretary for health, said that clinics are proceeding carefully and that no American children are receiving drugs or hormones for gender dysphoria who shouldn’t.”
I felt stunned and sickened. It wasn’t true. And I know that from deep first-hand experience.
So I started writing down everything I could about my experience at the Transgender Center. Two weeks ago, I brought my concerns and documents to the attention of Missouri’s attorney general. He is a Republican. I am a progressive. But the safety of children should not be a matter for our culture wars.
