Well, the anti-transgender writers at WND are at it again. Good!
I hope the “hate speech” zealots don’t come after my blog for writing the truth here. There is no “hate” here, only the truth.
The WND article is about how some transgender or formerly transgender people have experienced utter intolerance and torment from the “LGBT” community after the transgenders or former transgenders express their disappointment, their regret, their desire to change back to identifying themselves as the gender they actually are or were born with.
Now, are you one of those morons who treats such former transgenders with hostility rather than acceptance? What’s your problem? (as Dr. Meltzer would say) You see, it’s all about narcissism, this “transgender” movement. In fact, much of the leftist movements we have today, transgender, “LGBT” in general, “climate change” and calling opponents “deniers,” the college campus shouting down of speakers, it’s all a competition to see who can out-narcissist all the others.
In the WND article, a common theme of the female-to-male transgender was the pressure they received at an early age to change their genders, and their begging their parents to let them have testosterone treatments while teens. One expressed regret and said if only she had waited until she was past the age of 18.
The article referenced a USA Today op-ed by a transgender male-to-female-and-back-to-male now in his late 70s who had regretted his change. The writer noted the psychological abuse as a child, particularly from his grandmother who had dressed him up as a girl when he was only 4 years old, she “cross-dressed me in a full-length purple dress she made especially for me and told me how pretty I was as a girl,” and so on. Now, that’s child abuse, and the grandmother should have been brought up on charges. Apparently, this is over 70 years ago, so I doubt that Grandma-from-Hell is still living. (She’s probably in Hell at this time, quite frankly.)
And then the guy was sexually abused by his then-teenaged uncle. He wrote in USA Today, “Hidden underneath the makeup and female clothing was the little boy hurt by childhood trauma. I was once again experiencing gender dysphoria, but this time I felt like a male inside a body refashioned to look like a woman. I was living my dream, but still I was deeply suicidal.” Sad.
In more recent years we have the phenomenon of males saying they are females, and joining ladies’ athletic teams and competing in all-female events. I think that because of anti-“discrimination” laws, the ladies teams are not allowed to refuse to let the males on the team. The “transgenders” may think they are female, but they are still male. Why the hell do you think they keep winning competitions? We keep hearing about the “transgender female” (who is really a male) coming in First Place or winning First Prize in competitions. But they are cheaters, in my view. Phony “females.” Fakes, just like the cheating fake Indian Elizabeth Warren.
Back to the WND article, it also features several females who had had regrets in their transgender-male lives and wanted to go back. But they were targeted by the intolerant LGBT bigots.
One of the victims stated, “As soon as you start to maybe move away from a trans identity or start to voice things, they call you a TERF (trans-exclusionary radical feminist) or they instantly ostracize you and call you a traitor and fake, so it’s very hard to voice doubts and that contributes to not allowing you to voice that or realize that about yourself.”
When the subject of “hate” is involved here, it is those who target these regretful victims of society’s activist misfits. The “hate” is clearly on the part of the zealous activists who are probably too brainwashed to fathom that they, too, are victims of a gender-change cult.
Based on what I have read, in most cases when a child is expressing feelings of identifying as the opposite gender, it is really just a phase, and the kids naturally grow out of it. To encourage a healthy and honest gender self-identity, or gender identity, it is best to ignore the phase and continue treating the child as the male he is, or as the female that she is. But some of the “adults” in these kids’ lives are ignorant and in some cases brainwashed by this loony-tunes societal trend, and they are encouraging the child to go with such opposite-gender identity phases. Which, in my view, is adding to further psychological damage and fostering dysfunction.
