Transgenders Trying to Escape from the Transgender Crusade

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.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Boston University Economics Professors “Very Proud” of Her

Robert Wenzel writes that he spoke with several economics professors at Boston University, the alma mater of economics major Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Yesterday, I spoke over the phone with a number of BU faculty members in the economics department and the consensus was that she was a very bright student who has “very interesting ideas” and that she will have an impact. They seemed to believe that she was getting advice from “top economists,” perhaps Thomas Piketty. Yes, this Thomas Piketty.

Even Prof. Laurence Kotlikoff, who would seem to have the least in common with AOC from a policy perspective (He was President Ronald Reagan’s Council of Economic Advisers), told me that the Boston University economics faculty was “very proud of her.”

He emphasized that AOC was “impressive in many ways” and that what she is advocating “in many ways is closer to where we should be than where we are now.”

He said it was good she was pushing the envelope and that she is causing serious discussion. He particularly likes that she is pushing for a “progressive fiscal system.” He says we now have a regressive fiscal system.

Should Counselors Have the Freedom to Counsel with “Conversion” Therapy?

WND has an article on Liberty Counsel arguing before the U.S. Supreme Court that counselors should have the freedom to talk to clients about homosexuality or sexual identity, or any other matter, quite frankly. Liberty Counsel is challenging a New Jersey law that restricts such freedom of speech rights of counselors, specifically regarding ““unwanted same-sex attractions, behaviors or identity.”

I don’t know what’s wrong with the anti-free speech fascists on the left these days. They seem to have an agenda in the area of sexuality, which celebrates homosexuality, perversions and deviancy, and these days is quite anti-male, anti-heterosexual, and anti-biologically correct gender identity.

The activists and extremists don’t even want to allow others to discuss issues, or allow someone who might be insecure with his sexuality or gender identity to talk about it with a counselor. The activists in fact want to jail such counselors, just like the climate fanatics want to jail “deniers.”

It used to be that homosexual activists would chant, “Silence equals death.” That was one of their main slogans, during the 1980s. My, how things have changed.

Also recently, in New Hampshire, the “Live Free Or Die” state, by the way, Republican Gov. Chris Sununu signed a bill into law not only for transgender “civil rights,” but banning “conversion therapy” for transgender or sexual orientation. This means that, according to the law, “‘conversion therapy’ means practices or treatments that seek to change an individual’s sexual orientation or gender identity, including efforts to change behaviors or gender expressions or to eliminate or reduce sexual or romantic attractions or feelings toward individuals of the same gender.”

New Hampshire, the “Live Free Or Die” state. Except that if a client in therapy has “transgender” like feelings or homosexual attractions but doesn’t think that’s right or that’s not who he really is and wants to identify with his biological gender or wants to overcome same-sex attractions, he cannot do that in New Hampshire because such therapy is against the law.

There are many, many activists now who, in their zeal promoting “transgender” or homosexuality, want to now outlaw speech, merely discussing someone’s personal situation in which he wants help, and in which he does not accept certain attractions. And so far it seems the extremists are winning this fight, if they can get a Republican governor in New Hampshire to sign such a bill into law.

I’m sure the activists are in some way going to try to tie “conversion therapy” speech with bullying speech as well as with violence against transgenders and homosexuals. Yes, activists these days are that dishonest now.

One talk radio host I heard today was discussing a case regarding transgender issues, and a caller stated that her boyfriend’s 21-year-old sister has a 5-year-old son who the caller considers female and puts nail polish on him, and dresses, etc. The host was saying that’s child abuse, and I agree in some way with that, it’s psychological abuse. But the host was saying he would send Child Protective Services (CPS) after the 21-year-old mother. However, that same host has been very anti-CPS in the past, so I think he’s not thinking that through.

I wouldn’t send after ANYONE the same CPS that gets involved in child sex trafficking as well as promoting abusive homes for foster kids. Government CPS is notorious for those kinds of criminal activities against kids.

Anyway, regardless of the U.S. Supreme Court’s rarely getting anything right, I nevertheless wish Liberty Counsel a lot of luck in challenging the anti-free speech counseling laws.

“Green New Deal”: Rule by Crazed, Brainwashed Fanatics

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ed Markey have presented their hysterically irrational plan of nearly-total government takeovers of the energy sector or of the entire economy, in the name of “saving the planet.”

But it is really in the name of giving more elitists in Washington more control over the lives of others, in the name of slowing down and reversing society’s growth and progress it has experienced over the past 100 years, and reversing the rise in our standard of living.

It is in the name of punishing those who are successful and wealthy and taking away from them the justly acquired fruits of their successes in order to “equalize the wealth.” In other words, rather than strive to make more people wealthy and prosperous, let’s strive to make the masses poor and impoverished. And we’ll implement our fanatical mythological beliefs as part of the process.

Ed Marxey has a history of this kind of insanity as part of the Massachusetts moonbat tradition. And no, Alexandria Ocasio-Loonytunes, the world is not going to “end in 12 years” if we don’t do the progress-reversing, mass poverty-causing things you think are necessary.

“Climate change” fanatics: the climate has been changing for hundreds of millions of years. There have been ice ages, and there have been warming periods. Nothing you can do about it. The effects of human industrial activity and fossil fuels could only be so infinitesimal as to not have any real effect whatsoever. Climate change is a natural occurrence of the Earth, regardless of human behavior.

The climate change hysteria is mainly based on computer models that don’t pan out, and fraudulent, junk science. But people believe what they want to believe. The hysterical fanatics refer to skeptics of the global warming/climate change fanaticism as “deniers,” explicitly referring to Holocaust deniers to insult and denigrate those who are not a part of the hysterical, irrational chicken littlers. The fanatical climate change crusaders have also called for jailing skeptics. These fanatics are literally crazy, brainwashed people.

I heard Glenn Beck this morning lambasting Boston University, where Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez got her degree in economics. But ALL the colleges are like that. The colleges are turning out brainwashed robots who think thoroughly irrational things. And those young people already begin by being products of the government schools, who make the kids dumber and dumber as they go from K through 12. Sad.

The State of the Union

Apparently Donald Trump has been permitted by the high queen of botox to give his State of the Union this week. I hope that Rex Reed and Jaye P. Morgan don’t come along and gong him. But here is my take on the “state of the union.”

As I’ve written before, the territory of America is just too big a territory and too big a population to be all one single country or culture, all ruled over by one bureaucracy in Washington. It needs to be decentralized.

On the one side, we have the mystical nationalists who want that single nation and culture, from coast to coast, border to border. And their tribalist mentality, endorsing the police state and government wall to lock out foreigners. Many of these same people who say they are against the killing of unborn babies, couldn’t give a damn about babies in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen, and so forth.

And on the other side, we have the leftists who want to kill babies, steal money and property away from people and who want the government to be in control of taking in foreigners, mainly to have new voters to help further empower Democrats.

Many on both sides are lacking in moral principles, and are in contempt of freedom, individualism and private property, the very principles upon which America was founded. I’m really getting tired of all this.

The latest controversy is Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam who admits to being in a yearbook photo in which 2 people are shown, one wearing “black face” and the other in a KKK shmata. The news articles aren’t saying which one is Northam. But this is coming up at this time because of further scrutiny of Northam now that he has expressed the sentiments of abortion-promoting Democrats and Planned Parenthood.

In fact, it wouldn’t surprise me if it was Democrat strategists who found the yearbook and brought that to people’s attention, just to take attention away from Northam’s quote in an interview on abortion.

The recent abortion controversy has been revived by New York state whose anti-freedom governor Andrew Cuomo signed into law a much loosened abortion policy, in which non-doctors may perform abortions, and if the baby is “not viable.” (A lot of born babies and young kids are “not viable,” because they are dependent on their mommies for feeding. Should it be legal to kill them, too?)

And then in Virginia this House delegate Kathy Tran introduces a “partial-birth abortion” bill, to allow the killing of a baby just as it’s being born. Now, some talk radio people have been saying that Tran’s bill would allow the killing of the baby after the baby is born, which would be murder. However, there is not much difference between killing a baby just as it’s being born and killing a baby after it is born.

But Gov. Ralph Northam was asked about the bill in an interview and it is really this quote that Democrats are trying to sweep under the rug. Northam misunderstood what the actual bill would allow, but obviously he gets what the pro-death activists and the abortion industry really intend. Here is the quote, according to the Daily Caller:

“If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.”

Like the narcissism of the social activists who want to compel others to have to use certain pronouns that are incorrect or accept as truth that someone is a male even though he is a female just because he says he is a male, narcissism is what abortion activism is all about. “The baby is inconvenient for me, so kill the baby. I can’t be bothered to go through 9 months of pregnancy and childbirth. I can’t be bothered with using birth control, etc., etc.”

Related to all this, Democrats want “Medicare for All” or “single payer,” but most important is that the government has complete control over our medical matters, has complete access into our private medical and personal information. The anti-freedom socialists don’t believe that people have a right to privacy (except when it comes to abortion!). They don’t want a society of private property, so your home is not yours, and your private medical matters are not for just you to know, or just between you and a doctor. The socialists will want to know everything about the people among the population. They especially will want to know who might be a Christian or a conservative, or who homeschools their kids, or who owns firearms.

So with the abortion issue we have had a good idea of how some people really think, such as when we heard that Planned Parenthood was selling body parts of aborted babies. That is how some people think of their fellow humans.

And there is the narcissism and economic covetousness of many of the same people.

Elizabeth Warren says that billionaires should “stop being freeloaders,” even though probably in most cases billionaires became billionaires by way of consumers voluntarily paying their money for products or services those billionaires are offering.

Why does Elizabeth Warren want to steal even more income or wealth from people than the government already steals from them? And yes, when the government orders someone to hand over one’s earnings involuntarily at gunpoint and with the threat of being thrown in a cage, that’s stealing.

Warren stated:

“All I’m asking for is a little slice from the tippy, tippy top. A slice that would raise — and this is the shocking part, Jim — about $2.75 trillion over the next 10 years … That’s money we need so that every kid in this country has a decent child care opportunity, has an opportunity for pre-K, has an opportunity for a decent school.”

Barf. Me. Out.

But the federal, state and local governments have been throwing more and more money into government-run education, and the schools are producing dumber and dumber, and more and more ignorant graduates. What about that, Pocahantas?

And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants to tax, i.e. steal, a much higher percentage of people’s earnings as well. Some people have been referring to her as “AOC,” but that reminds me too much of “AOL,” which I had from 2001-2005 and that ruined my then-computer with a terrible virus. So AOL sucks, and I will not refer to “AOC,” and just type out her name.

Steal 70% of someone’s earnings? Will it ever be enough? And for what? What exactly does the government in Washington do that is worth ANY of the money it steals from us? NOTHING!

And now the new congressperson from Detroit Rashida Tlaib wants to seize GM’s closed plants using eminent domain, and use such places for the “Green New Deal.” She’s the degenerate who spewed a most profane and disrespectful tirade at a bar recently.

Nothing about paying GM for the use of the closed plant, or offering to buy the closed plant from GM with funds from the philanthropists who generally seem to agree with these crazy clucks and their environmental fanaticism, such as Bill Gates or George Soros.

Nope. their mentality is “let’s steal property and confiscate wealth,” robbing and thieving, make use of other people’s hard work and labor to serve our own narcissistic agendas, etc. “All these producers and creators of wealth in our society are too ‘rich,’ so because of our own selfish envy and covetousness we must take it all away form them and steal their property.”

And kill babies just before they’re born (or after they’re born), because they are inconvenient.

But the people on the other side, such as conservatives, talk radio ditto-heads, nationalists, are just as bad. They don’t believe in private property and free markets, and they also believe in stealing private wealth, imposing fines on those who trade with non-government-authorized producers or sellers, jailing employers and laborers who do not comply with orders to get government authorization to exist, in their trade idiocy and their anti-foreigner immigration collectivism and tribalism.

I’ve heard plenty of the egalitarian “everybody has to pay their fair share” crapola from the talk radio ditto-heads and so forth. They do not get what America is all about: private property, free markets and voluntary trade, individualism and freedom.

Each person is an individual. If you don’t suspect an individual of violating the person or property of others, then you leave him alone. An employer wants to hire a worker the employer thinks is most qualified, so he hires him, and you leave them alone. No going to Mommy and Daddy government for permission or authorization to work somewhere or employ someone. But the dittio-heads don’t get that. For them, freedom stops at the border, and outsiders may not come into “our home” without a bureaucrat’s authorization.

So, both the leftists and the other side are for the police state, government intruding into people’s private lives, and, most of all, government central planning.

It’s enough already.
