You can get a mastectomy at 13 in California

“Professional guidelines and clinical practice should recommend patients for chest surgery based on individual need rather than chronologic age.”  That is the conclusion the authors of this study have drawn after surgically removing the breasts of 2 13-year old transmales (girls) and 5 14-year olds.  Via bioedge.org:

According to the authors, who are based at the Center for Transyouth Health and Development at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, “All postsurgical participants (68 of 68; 100%) affirmed the statement, ‘It was a good decision to undergo chest reconstruction.’”

Since the girls were overwhelmingly positive about their operation, the authors contend that “Professional guidelines and clinical practice should recommend patients for chest surgery based on individual need rather than chronologic age.”

However, it’s unclear whether the girls (transmales) had enough time for a mature evaluation of their life-changing decision. For nearly all the 68 participants in the survey, only two years had passed. To affirm that there were “very low rates of regret” among minors seems a bit premature. For instance, a study of women who had a single or double mastectomy found that they were quite unrealistic about life after surgery. “Patients generally thought mastectomy would be worse than it was, and they thought reconstruction would be better than it was,” said the lead author.

The other side of the coin is that the “chest dysphoria” of “transmasculine minors” was said to be so severe that it affected their health. They often resorted to chest binding, which is associated with “pain, rib fractures, light-headedness, weakness, skin infection” and other ailments.

This seems to be the justification for the authors’ conclusion that “Youth should be referred for chest surgery based on their individual needs, rather than their age or time spent taking medication. Individualized, patient-centered care plans should be considered the standard of care for all transgender adolescents, and referrals should be made accordingly.”

So the conclusion of these “professionals” is that we should listen to what children think is the best thing for them regardless of their age.  If a girl thinks she’s a boy and thinks she should have her breasts remove we should listen to her.  Given that you can already lose custody of your child if you refuse hormone treatment it shouldn’t come as a surprise that California is allowing this.  California, forever on the bleeding edge of all things twisted and decadent.

It cannot be stated often enough that children need time to mature and grow and figure themselves out before making drastic, permanent, life-altering decisions like this.   Teens going through puberty are never sure about what they want or who they are.  That’s the entire thrust of what going through puberty is all about, figuring yourself out.  To jump to the conclusion that you are really the opposite sex before even going through this process is premature and downright dangerous.  And don’t think that this isn’t deliberate.  What they teach in schools today, and how they indoctrinate our children, all ties into this increase in transgender surgeries and dysphoria in general.

Primum non nocere, first do no harm, should especially be the primary objective when dealing with teens who have their entire lives ahead of them.  Instead of addressing the root cause of why teens may be this confused about their gender, primarily the Marxist indoctrination they’re receiving in schools, these physicians seem to be skipping all of that and jumping to extreme conclusions and recommendations.  They’d rather prescribe all sorts of psychotropic medications or perform irreversible surgeries than try milder, less intrusive, methods first.  Or, here’s an idea, how about prescribing “watchful waiting” and see if the patient doesn’t have second thoughts a few years down the road?

As the article rightly points out, the follow up for these patients is not nearly long enough out, 2 years or less, for them to see if they’re truly happy or not.  I’d be interested to see a follow up 5, 10, 20 years from now, if the patients are still alive.  Sadly, transgender regret is a very real thing, and their suicide rates are also much higher than the rest of the population.

Julian the trans puppet to the rescue to help kids having gender issues…

In today’s episode of stupid crap Canada is doing I’d like to introduce you to Julian the trans puppet.

Via ctvnews.ca:

MONTREAL — The young school-age puppet named Julia feels in her heart she’s a boy and wants to be called Julian.

Trans advocates say for many very young children and their families, tackling such gender-related questions are real and can be complicated.

Enter Julian, the marionette at the heart of three bilingual videos designed to help provide youngsters and their families with the necessary tools to navigate such questions.

Julian (the puppet goes by Julien in French) is the brainchild of the Jasmin Roy Sophie Desmarais Foundation, a Montreal-based organization dedicated to fighting bullying, which unveiled the free video capsules and educational booklets Wednesday.

The videos, which tackle issues like gender identity, self-expression and acceptance, star Julian and his fellow puppet friends Leo and Annie in addition to a human female character named Alex.

The foundation’s Jasmin Roy said the intended audience is very targeted.

“We need to develop emotional and social skills for educators, parents and other children who are around those children exploring their gender or expression,” Roy said.

“Now, every time you have a child in your community who’s dealing with that reality, you’ll have a tool to help you.”

Where can we draw the line?  Where can we say no and not be called a bigot?  Every single time we extend a hand they want to take the entire arm.  Trans acceptance was never going to be enough.  They were always going to infiltrate the schools and get to our children.

This is a real danger.  This puppet is for little children.  Kids are still trying to figure out who the hell they are and what they want well into puberty and beyond.  I thought I was Indiana Jones when I was a kid, but is it really healthy to have the adults play into the fantasy?  There are already instances of parents losing custody of their children for refusing sex-change surgery.  We’re already at that point where the state can control your children without your permission.  Given the regret that can take place, and the crazy high suicide rates of trans people in general, is this really a road we should be going down in our children’s minds?  There are no doubt cases of children with true gender dysphoria.  But that number is astronomically low.  So low that installing trans puppets into schools to teach children about it will do far more harm than good.

We used to have a thing called common sense that would end crap like this in its tracks.  Today, we live too comfortably, and it gives too much time for people to take up causes that are entirely unnecessary and downright dangerous.  More on this in a post coming soon on the perils of Pax Americana.  The more I hear about what children are being subjected to in schools these days, the more tempting home schooling sounds.  It is undeniable your children are being programmed and indoctrinated in our education system.  They have our kids from kindergarten through college to program their minds however they want.

If you want to go further down the rabbit hole of what’s being programmed into our children, check out the video below on the Elsagate controversy or the f’ed up “children” shows they allow on YouTube.  Here’s a blurb from Wikipedia on Elsagate.

Elsagate is a neologism referring to the controversy surrounding supposedly child-friendly videos on YouTube and YouTube Kids which contain themes that are inappropriate for children. Most videos under this classification are notable for presenting content such as violence, sexual situations, fetishes, drugs, alcohol, toilet humor, and dangerous or upsetting situations and activities.[1]

The videos often feature popular characters from family-oriented media, sometimes via crossovers, used without legal permission; the term itself is composed of Elsa (a character from the 2013 Disney animated film Frozen, who is frequently depicted in such videos) and -gate (a suffix for scandals).[1] However, the Elsagate controversy has also included channels such as Toy Freaks that do not feature child/family-friendly characters but real children, and have raised concern about possible child abuse.

Most videos in this category are either live action films or crude digital animations, although a few channels have been using more elaborate techniques such as clay animation.[2] Despite YouTube’s age restriction policies, these videos are sometimes tagged in such a way to circumvent the inbuilt child safety algorithms, even making their way into YouTube Kids, and are thus difficult to moderate due to the large scale of the platform.[3] In order to capture search results and attract attention from users, their titles and descriptions feature names of famous characters, as well as keywords like “education”, “learn colors”, “nursery rhymes”, etc.[4][5] They also include automatically placed ads, making them lucrative to their owners and to YouTube. Despite the objectionable and often confusing nature of these videos, many attract millions of views.[4]

While criticism of the channels themselves has existed since at least 2016, public awareness of the phenomenon grew in 2017, as it became part of a broader controversy about child safety on YouTube. That year, after reports by several media outlets, YouTube adopted stricter guidelines regarding children’s content. In late November, the company started to mass delete channels and videos falling into the Elsagate category, as well as large amounts of other inappropriate videos or user’s comments relating to children.[6]

More PC BS out of England – 40 schools in England ban girls from wearing skirts to accommodate transgender students

The UK has gone full libtard on the transgender issue.  In a move that will benefit nobody, 40 schools in England have banned skirts so transgender folks feel more comfortable.  This is a month after another school in England suggested dudes wear skirts when it’s hot out.  Via RT:

According to the Sunday Times, schools are opting for gender-neutral uniforms to encompass transgender students, with others consulting on a ban.

Priory School, a secondary in Lewes, East Sussex enforced a ban on skirts and ordered girls to wear trousers instead in an effort to accommodate transgender pupils, after students had asked why girls and boys had to wear different clothes.

Headteacher Tony Smith said in September, “We have a small but increasing number of transgender students and therefore having the same uniform is important for them.”

The number of concessions made for various fringe groups over the years is truly astounding.  It’s yet another sign of decay and decadence during the great downfall of our civilization.

I think parent Diane Burdaky has it right, “If boys want to dress like girls and girls want to dress like boys that’s fine, but what’s wrong with girls dressing like girls?” – but then again common sense should not be taken for granted in the current year.

Teacher forced to resign for refusing to abide by the SJW transgender narrative

An Indiana teacher was forced to resign because he wouldn’t call students whatever gender pronouns they were feeling that day.  He committed the crime of respecting biology.  Via the Federalist:

Local public officials have so far refused to publicly discuss the policies they put into place at the beginning of 2018 that John Kluge says led to his resignation in May. Brownsburg Community School Corporation, the district that employed Kluge, put out a transgender policy document in January instructing staff to call students by their chosen names and pronouns once they are so designated on school records. Kluge opted instead to address students by their last names to avoid either referring to his apparently several transgender students with pronouns and names of the opposite sex, or offending them by not doing as they wished despite its contradiction of reality.

That wasn’t good enough. At the school board meeting, students accused Kluge of saying that transgender persons “are not an actual human being” and “actively disrespect[ing]” them for not using opposite-sex pronouns to describe them.

“Mr. Kluge’s religious beliefs have absolutely no place in a public high school. I think what he believes is morally just conflicts with what not only I believe, [but] what my parents believe, what my psychiatrist, therapist and doctor believe and the school board believe are morally just,” said student Aidyn Sucec. Kluge’s beliefs are not merely moral, but also scientific. Scientifically, there are only two sexes. “Gender” is a linguistic term for a non-physical concept.

Everyone should respect the wishes of this student.  Her (his?) beliefs supersede that of Mr Kluge’s, clearly.  I mean, c’mon.  Even her psychiatrist thinks so!

As I’ve said before, these people are sick and deserve our compassion and help.  One way to help them is to not indulge in their fantasies.  We are told to respect them for who they are, but they don’t even respect themselves for who they were.  But it all makes total sense in this SJW infested world.

If you haven’t read it yet, I highly recommend Vox Day’s SJWs Always Lie: Taking Down the Thought Police and the sequel SJWs Always Double Down: Anticipating the Thought Police (The Laws of Social Justice), both of which add so much incite into how these things happen.  Part of the grand globalist strategy is to infiltrate our education system and infect our kids with 12+ years of indoctrination into their sick ideas and beliefs.  This case is a prime example.  Notice how the parents of children at this school reacted when they discovered this transgender policy was very quietly put in in the first place:

Parents Flood Board Meeting: ‘Why Weren’t We Notified?’

The school district’s policy document says students may change their sex designation and name on school records with parental permission and “a letter from a health care professional.” It also says teachers and staff who refer to such children with the pronouns and name that correspond to their biological sex will be liable for unspecified professional consequences if the teacher did so on purpose or  more than once.

“lt is the employee’s professional responsibility to follow the expectations and guidelines” of the school district, the document says several times. ” lt is our expectation that teachers use the pronoun associated with the gender as it appears in PowerSchool. lf they/them is requested, we expect that pronoun to be used as well,”  the document says.”

More than 200 parents flooded the local school board meeting Monday at which Kluge was allowed the usual two minutes to plead his case. “Many of the parents at Monday night’s meeting said they were unaware that this accommodation was in place for transgender students and are uncomfortable with its implications for their children,” reported the Indianapolis Star. “Landon Chapman said he’s not comfortable with students who were born male being able to use the same female restroom as his daughter. ‘Why is it that parents weren’t notified?’ he asked the board.”

During the two-hour public comment period, school board members merely thanked people for their comments and refused to talk about the district’s pro-transgender policies, which include allowing students to use the bathrooms and locker rooms of the opposite sex. The district’s policy document says their policies are a direct result of court decisions and federal regulations.

Yet courts have so far handed down mixed decisions on transgender students and the Trump administration rescinded the Obama administration’s push for transgender preferences in public schools. Most courts forcing transgender policies on schools are reinterpreting the word “sex” inside the federal Title IX law to mean “self-description of gender” instead, despite the lack of precedent or sense for doing so.

This is how it happens.  They creep in slowly and quietly and it’s a gradual takeover.  As with the parents above, once this was made public there was an outcry.  This is why we need to constantly out this crap and make it known for all to see.
