Transgender Kids: Are We Doing More Harm Than Good?

First, Do No Harm: Youth Gender Professionals

by Todd A. Whitworth

Before we start I’d like to disclose a little about myself to inform you the reader that I am not coming to this subject void of experience. I am a female to male transexual man. I started my transition in 1993 by changing my name and gender pronouns. I took a year before I began the physical part of my transition in 1994 with hormone replacement therapy, I was 21. I remain glad that I made the choice to transition, and that I took the time I did to explore that it was not just a phase.

The movement to support children transitioning from one gender to the other may be causing more harm than good. For the purpose of this piece, I am asserting that there are two genders male and female. Transitioning from one gender to the other is a long, expensive, and invasive process…

We must teach youth this basic feminist message, to counteract “transgender” messages: love and accept your body, reject sex roles (gender)

I made his comment on a UK website today (The Telegraph). The Brits seem more skeptical than Americans about “transgender” at this point:

It’s great to see almost 100% of commenters on “transgender” articles either think “transgender” is nonsense, or disagree with the latest antics of transactivists.

Editors and advertisers: please take note. People are afraid (and threatened) into not speaking up, except where they can comment anonymously, or under pseudonyms.

Feminists had it right in the 1970s:

We all need need to learn to accept and make peace with our bodies, as they are naturally.

We need to reject sex roles (gender) and instead become whole human beings, developing all of our capabilities, including rejecting the idea that males can and should dominate, and that women can and should be subordinate.

The male doctors and clients who developed the concept of “transgender” have somehow missed (ignored) that feminist message for the last 4 1/2 decades.

So it is up to the rest of us to teach the feminist message, above, to our youth:

– Figure out how to love and accept your body.

– Reject sex-roles (gender).

– Be whole, equal human beings, not stereotypes of males and females.

Transgender Rights: The Elimination of the Human Rights of Women

Are we going to just stand by and accept this? Tolerate this? Agree to this, falling all over ourselves for the rights of men who are working doggedly to eliminate OUR rights?

Lost Voices in the Transgender Debate: Liberals and Conservatives Unite in Defense of Women’s Rights

HANDS ACROSS THE AISLE

Lost Voices in the Transgender Debate: Liberals and Conservatives Unite

As the debate over transgenderism and gender identity continues to divide the nation, a politically diverse group of women came together to form a coalition called Hands Across the Aisle.

Their voices include a conservative, a rape survivor, a feminist, and a lesbian activist, all of whom believe that defining sex based on gender identity rather than biology is harmful to women. It reduces women to sexual stereotypes, they say, and erases their status before the law.

Their perspectives, the women say, have been “blacklisted” by the left-leaning news media. But in an exclusive interview in Washington with The Daily Signal, women from Hands Across the Aisle share why they’re uniting on such a controversial issue.

Trans-critical Analysis: Conservatives are Not Alone. An Endorsement of Female Erasure by: Michelle Cretella, MD

Fascinating. I’m glad both radfems and conservative women were able to find common ground beyond behind critical trans ideology and politics. Very open-minded of Dr. Cretella.

HANDS ACROSS THE AISLE

This review of  Female Erasure by Michelle Cretella, MD can be found at http://www.femaleerasure.com/

Editor Ruth Barrett is a courageous woman who has defied political orthodoxy in publishing Female Erasure: What you need to know about gender politics’ war on women, the female sex and human rights. Barrett’s masterpiece is an eclectic, incisive, well referenced analysis of the transgendering of society and its harmful impact upon women and children. Not only has Barrett swum headlong into the transgender tsunami, braving an onslaught of harassment, including death threats (as have many of her contributors), but she has also reached across the political abortion divide in the process. Barrett, like most of her contributors, is a feminist fiercely committed to abortion rights. Yet, she still approached me, President of the pro-life American College of Pediatricians, to request permission to republish my scientific statement on gender dysphoria in her anthology. As I had…

Natasha Chart: Feminist in Exile

Fantastic post, from someone of integrity and courage, who has been professionally and financially been persecuted for having integrity and being courageous. Natasha, thank you.

HANDS ACROSS THE AISLE

On the subject of whether a woman is an adult human female, feminists have been made thoroughly unwelcome on the left. So if liberals think it’s very strange for feminists to work with conservatives, they should probably stop telling us to “drink bleach” or looking the other way as online mobs demand that we be fired.

Talking with friends this week, I listed out types of incidents that have happened to myself or feminists I’ve talked to as a result of gender identity disagreements. They include: rape and death threats, stalking, assault, being targeted for harassment at work or being fired, being threatened with boycotts, being falsely accused of committing criminal acts or violence, having their personal information publicized, being banned from student clubs, having social media accounts suspended, or being blacklisted in their field.

That’s just the tip of the iceberg. Women even run into this outside of politics…

HANDS ACROSS THE AISLE

Restore the Safety and Privacy of Women in HUD-Funded Emergency Shelters!

The Hands Across the Aisle Coalition has decided that it’s time for the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development to restore the safety and privacy of homeless and abused women who seek refuge in HUD-funded emergency shelters.

Federally-funded women’s shelters are presently required to admit male clients who claim to feel female, or risk closing their doors to the women who desperately need them. Traumatized women who object to sharing sleeping and bathing quarters with men have been stripped of the right to complain, and could lose their place in a shelter for continuing to do so.

Our coalition believes that this is an injustice in need of immediate remedy.

Currently, the final Housing and Urban Development Rule, “Equal Access in Accordance with an Individual’s Gender Identity in Community Planning and Development Programs,” 81 Fed. Reg. 64763 (Sept. 21, 2016,) requires…
