In the name of social justice, Democrats are endangering families
Scott Weiner is a groomer who also decriminalized knowingly infecting someone with AIDS. Commiefornia's entire ruling class and education system is rotten to its core: https://yuribezmenov.substack.com/p/how-to-appoint-a-commissar-parts
I'm sick and tired of your both sides-ism Lisa. If Republican or conservative laws have gone too far, it's because they have been backed into a corner by gender ideologues and Democrats who seen any and all boundaries are oppressive. Transitioning children is abusive and barbaric. Our sons are being made eunuchs and our daughters breasts are being cut off all in the name of progressivism. Banning transition for those under 18 is absolutely necessary. Gender ideology and the transgenderism movement has radicalized me and I now oppose any transition, including for adults. It paves the way for this barbarity. No doctor would amputate the leg of a person with chronic and intense knee pain, yet here we are, mutilating, amputating and sterilizing the bodies of children.
This post is a first-rate contribution to understanding the truth of "where we are." Thank you. For all that it says, it points to much more.
This bill would invite matching but opposite bills in TX and etc that would license parents to kidnap their own children away of custodial agreements if they didn’t want them treated. And the incentive for the parent to lie in that case would be even greater - they don’t even have to pretend the kid is GD or seek treatmwnt, just claim that the other parent will do so. The natural end point of this arms race is that whoever runs off with the kid first wins.
No matter what you think of pediatric gender medicine, this seems like a disastrous idea. I genuinely find it hard to believe that California is so consumed with red-blue culture war stuff that they’d even consider a bill like this, with all its obvious consequences.
Astonishing the number of issues this proposed legislation raises. Legally and politically, it is a more radical act of secession than was "Sanctuary Cities." From a philosophical perspective, the degree of pseudo-revolutionary rationalism divorced from reality is astonishing, and clarifies further the the irrational(ist) endpoints of this (ideological) "process." Truly, reality itself has become "reactionary."
Thanks for all you are writing about. It’s appreciated and also terrifying.
Well this is timely. I just read that the Tavistock gender affirming clinic for children in the UK is shutting down because it has been deemed unsafe for children. The UK has been completely captured by trans ideology so this is huge.
Instead of rushing children into life-altering treatment on puberty blockers it will be replaced by regional centres at existing children’s hospitals offering more holistic care” with “strong links to mental health services”.
Absolute insanity...who the hell are these ghouls?!
Might be one of your strongest pieces yet, Lisa. Thanks to you and Wesley.
Big Weiner strikes again.
"Are they aware that, for instance, puberty blockers are increasingly seen not as a pause button on puberty, giving time to explore, but an initial step in lifelong medicalization; in many studies, the number of young people who go on to cross-sex hormones after PBs is over 95%."
This seems disingenuous. First, the two contrasting parts of the claim aren't actually in conflict with each other: puberty blockers are presented as a pause button on puberty, giving time to explore, *and then* 95% of young people who are given that opportunity to explore decide that transition is the right choice for themselves.
Are we supposed to believe that this comes as a surprise to the young people involved? That if they had known they were eventually going to choose transition, they would've preferred not to go on puberty blockers in the first place?
The implication is that 95% is too high. What percentage of young people on puberty blockers do you believe "should" choose transition eventually?
"Are they aware of the link between cross-sex hormones in pubescent bodies and infertility?"
If they know anything at all about how human reproduction works, then yes, they're aware that after transition they'll be infertile. These kids aren't stupid.
