The Lie of Gender Affirmation
medical abuse cannot fix childhood trauma or the angst of puberty
“The transition didn’t help, it made things worst for me,” — Laura Funk God in Affirmation Generation
This seems quite patently obvious to me, knowing what I do about the human body and how it works. Telling a child they are the opposite sex, telling them they will be fixed if they change their identity and their name, telling them they need to do this in secret from their parents, telling them that their parents are bad + bigoted for questioning them or challenging them (ahem it’s a parent’s job) or refusing this extreme + experimental treatment, telling a child that puberty can be paused with no consequence at all — well that flies in the face of everything we know about child development + learning + human reproduction. Also, why do schools need to have these conversations with children? Chemical castration + amputation of healthy body parts of adolescents cannot possibly affirm these adolescents—science, in fact, indicates the opposite. Euphemisms mask the ugly reality.
What does Gender Affirming Care for children mean? Let’s break it down.
Forced experimental hormone treatment on children, which stunts their bone + brain + metabolic growth + which renders them sterile, ie unable to reproduce + renders them unable to function sexually, ie ever have an orgasm in their lives
Forced amputation of healthy body parts + experimental genital reconstruction
Emotionally blackmailing parents with ultimatums of suicide of their child if the parents express doubts about the experimental treatment
A cult of activists armed with propaganda pretending to be science pressure vulnerable young people to choose gender affirmation and see transition as the only solution for them and tell them anyone who challenges them is hateful and wants them to kill themselves
A cult of activist armed with propaganda pretending to be science and lots of emotional rhetoric lobbying lawmakers and human rights agencies to call refusal of this experimental treatment Conversion Therapy to confuse everyone into thinking this is that protecting kids from gender affirmation is same as the abuse done to gay kids and force the entire world to call sex-based categorization of human beings “anti-trans hate”
The media participating by blacking out all stories and refusing to investigate any concerns of impropriety or human rights violations and conflicts
The entire education system — from nursery school to university — now captured by the Gender Affirmation Cult and its associated hatred of female people as well as gay and lesbian people and it’s contempt for the nuclear family
Having the indoctrination of children into the Gender Affirmation Cult serve as the primary objective of the education system, rather than the evidence-based objective associated with best outcomes of preparing the young human with skills and knowledge to survive and thrive in adulthood.
The Dictator in the White House doing all he can to obstruct state legislators trying to ban harmful Gender Affirmation Cult practises that damage female sport and torpedo the human rights of female people, terrorise parents, destroy families, and socially + emotionally cannibalise children.
The mass industrial scale chemical castration + mastectomising + genital reconstruction of children + young people perpetrated in the name of Gender Affirmation points to a disturbing failure of societal safeguards and will create a human crisis that we haven’t seen since the 1940s. This will surpass lobotomies and it will surpass Thalidomide in the horror of its outcome.
Unlike these two cases, Gender Affirmation has happened despite the existence of a body of work that points to overwhelming adverse side effects from iatrogenic damage. Activists have taken over the medical establishment — medical ethics and due diligence and differential diagnoses and informed consent no longer matter because we have emotionally disturbed narcissists attached to a particular treatment modality outcome now grabbing the power to make clinical decisions for entire societies. Anyone who resists this authoritarian move receives a swift neo-Stalinist kind of punishment.
The strange thing to me has always been that anyone considered unnecessary surgery would be a thing that would be so beneficial for adolescents it would override the trauma it would cause from the procedure and the loss of body parts itself. And that this would be seen to somehow fix or remedy the already existing trauma on board (ACEs etc) that we pretend don’t matter. It seems like a very disturbing LARPing of Abraham + Ishmail and The Sacrifice — a man eager to sacrifice his only son to a deity who demands that particular proof of loyalty.
Again, I ask — what if the test were how willing we were to protect our children and what if Abraham failed that test? And what if we are still being tested and still failing that test? When will we pass the test of What Lengths Will I Go to Safeguard My Child?

Somehow a young adolescent girl who has survived sexual abuse and has some variation of an eating disorder and a pubescent self image problem can be helped by placing her on testosterone, not acknowledging the impact on her aggressive tendencies and completely ignoring her disordered eating? Wow, is this the new pediatric medicine that just came out after I studied nursing and worked in peds as an aide and had to supervise girls with anorexia whilst they ate and did their antics of hiding food etc etc?
Um, oh hai I was that adolescent grrl with the trauma on board and the disordered eating and I am glad my parents had an innate mistrust of pediatricians + child psychologists + social workers + the public education system. I was spared that white coat saviourism festival of child cannibalism, despite my discalculia + adhd +aspergianism etc etc which we didn’t diagnose or label in the 1970s and 1980s. My parents handled it, they were in their 30s, this was not my mum’s first rodeo, and they honed in and did what I needed and it worked — but hola, mum + dad outsourced nothing, they sent me to private school on one income. Okay we won’t talk about those few years of Thioridazine aka Mellaril the weird pharmaceutical-pushing old fashioned doc told mum to give me so I would sleep at night when I was quite young.
My dad went to the school division when I was 6 or 7 and got the textbook for mathematics and taught me himself at home year round. I did not know the difference between 0x3 and 0+3 … I was so hooped when it came to mathing, dad had his work cut out for him, hahahaha omfg. He worked full time and led a weekly prayer group, he cleaned the church and sanctuary every weekend, he served as a driver for family members and he still had time to teach me to math and be the helicopter I needed to get me through school. Everything was for my growth and education. My paternal grandmother didn’t read or write and my dad was going to equip me to be a powerful and independent force for my life. We did times tables drills in the garage after school and on weekends. I was in math bootcamp for years.
I graduated from high school with extra credits and high honours, I had exemptions from final exams in university entrance math + chemistry because my marks were so high. I won a university entrance scholarship when I graduated from grade 12 in 1986. In the 10 years from grade 2 to grade 12 I went from not being able to multiply to knowing pi to several digits and loving trigonometry and algebra. Because my dad took the time to teach me in addition to sending me to a good school where teachers cared. And because I worked my ass off. Adults around me cared and I wanted to achieve as a result. Despite the trauma of circumstances happening during my upbringing.
Yeah, did you think this level of intellectual and thinking capacity I have just fell into my lap one day? Did you think it was all talent or genius? Did you think it is as easy as just dropping your kids off at school and outsourcing their education and psychological cultivation whilst you trot off to accumulate a bunch of sh1t in life? How about nah?
If nothing else, this Gender Affirmation Cult [coupled with the Covid death + morality cult] has snapped parents awake and forced them to confront the realities of parenting school-aged kids and reconsider what is their role in their kids’ education and what does a kid’s education entail exactly, and how to make that jive with the financial realities of working and career.
Common sense tells me this Gender Affirmation approach is horsesh1t, why is anyone giving it any credence? It’s 21st Century Lysenkoism. Nothing more than that. What purpose is it serving, though? Why do parents need this to be the panacea? What is keeping kids in the school system that is trying to destroy them for religious fervour?
The other thing I have found strange and confounding about Gender Affirmation involves how anyone could honestly believe the thing which plummeted Turing into a deep depression and drove him to take his life would be a life-saving prophylaxis for a vulnerable child. How anyone could honestly believe that giving powerful hormones with significant side effects to adolescents that have raging + wildly fluctuating hormones of puberty would affirm anything for that child except a lifetime of grief and suffering. We never controlled for testosterone having mood lifting S/Es in depressive female children, whom the culture totally depresses by turning them into a hood ornament glass vessel currency for the entire society.
No, a female human taking testosterone to masculinise her appearance is not equivalent to my late gay brother with end stage HIV having to take testosterone via IM injection to mitigate severe fatigue + depleting muscle mass + diminishing libido, and which I administered to him by the way. These two medical processes are entirely different. Trans men are Trans men and that is okay. A TM taking testosterone has different medical needs than my brother would have — when you chant the silly TMAM mantra you erase that physical + clinical reality.
I know a TM who had a stroke and who suffered with metabolic syndrome and also with the atrophy that inevitably happens to the female reproductive tissue exposed to high levels of exogenous testosterone. The side effects created unpleasant sequelae. I wonder if the iatrogenic damage was preventable? I wonder about the level of informed consent — how much are we telling patients and what are the ethics of allowing patients to take these risks, which really is a risk for us all, because the health care system in Canada is government, ie tax, funded. Gender Affirmation is the absolute opposite of trans rights, by the way, based on my observed experience of on the ground trans living.
The whole premise of Gender Affirmation, when I break it down with my clinical nurse’s brain, makes zero sense to me. It seems egregious. It seems on par with Mengele and I don’t say this lightly.
A menopausal woman, let’s call her Terry, cannot get HRT because the doctors deem her to have too many risk factors for metabolic syndrome and stroke. The same safeguards applied to Terry are not applied to another woman, George, a lesbian with risk factors for metabolic syndrome who has decided to masculinise. Our present day culture calls this discriminatory application of clinical safeguards affirmation and I call it transphobic, because we have lowered the standards of care for the female person who identifies as transsexual, thereby placing her at high risk for life threatening cardiovascular events.
What are we affirming when we are lowering care standards and placing trans people at higher risk of severe side effects that increase mortality? A construct. We are affirming the materialist value of V-A-L-I-D-A-T-I-O-N. Possibly at the cost of life expectancy.
What did Nazism bring to German and surrounding society? Racial essentialism that designated certain races as subhuman. Militant coercion of the masses. Heavy-handed legislation that removes individual liberties and targets particular population groups. Attrition of the human population according to eugenic principles and calling it national security, safety, or some other designated worthy cause. Propaganda infiltrations within every societal institution, especially education and health care delivery. Fear based rhetoric. Shame-based rhetoric. Divisive rhetoric. Violence as the solution to conflict. Collective projection - accusations = confessions. States targeting individuals private citizens who resist the state enforced political cult.
How could this be allowed to happen? How did money/profits become so important that families and children are sacrificed in such an obviously misguided education system and health care treatment policy? How did a materialistic construct and secular catechism created by Queer Theorists displace the family as the centre of child education and family health? This would be like asking the coyotes and wolves to help us safeguard cattle herds. Those childless individuals who want to consume children to promote a religious or political ideology ought not to be anywhere near policy and programme-making for children and families. Families and children need to be centred for all child and family programming policy development + delivery, not activist + identity lobby groups. These are our children, not the chess pawns of childless elites who resemble the ruling class in Handmaid’s Tale.
Queer Theory (QT) has as its goal the disruption of societal norms and erosion of existing safeguard boundaries. Anarchists [who have taken over Anitfa] love the sh1t out of QT because anarchists are assholes in the extreme who want to burn the whole fucking thing called society down. QT is a pervert’s distortion of the Marxian analytic framework, which does have a vital use like it or not — maybe stop getting your lessons on Marx from Fox News and the Tucker Carlson Dumb-Bum Gang of Intellectual Prowess, okay?1
I like Jordan Peterson for many things and his views on Marx are absolutely NOT one of them ahahahahaha … an amoeba eats his brain every time he opens his mouth to talk about Marx. Not sorry, I don’t buy your horsesh1t simply cuz I think you are clever, muppets. Cope.
I think the parent blaming which faux feminists + the Woko Haram love to bathe in sucks scrotal sacks — miss me with that entirely, okay? I think society needs to start treating reproduction + child rearing with a bit more sacredness + respect + support. And I think we need to decide what kind of human rights terrain we wish to have in our human world. Human Rights is not the word to use if you are promoting ideas that will erode and weaken the family and the supports thereto. You cannot really say you are promoting humanity and the rights of humans when you are at the same time actively tearing down the supports + structures that nurture + grow humans + keep them safe!
Queer Theory or The Nuclear Family? The latter is the building block of society. The former of an American Imperial menace. Choose wisely, my dear readers. Happy Easter to my Christian readers and Happy Passover to my Jewish readers and Happy Ramadan to my Muslim readers.
Parents or anyone fighting this crazy Gender Affirmation Cult who feel like you are alone and struggling or like you need a Rage Doula please do reach out for a coaching session. The cost for this session is a written (anonymous if you wish) testimonial. Remember, you are never alone and you are the expert on your kid and the objective is your kid’s well being not to placate narcissists who think they know better than you what is right for your kid. Push back, this is your heart walking outside your body.
I’m not a Marxist or a Marxian, simply a human who doesn’t like to be fed sh1t sandwiches by anyone, even if they happen to have a high H-Index Score.
