The Dark Truth About Gender Equality

Our Dutch correspondent H. Numan wades into the Culture Wars with a discussion of what is now commonly known as “trans”.

The dark truth about gender equality

by H. Numan

Gentle men and women, can you keep your nutcases under control, please? I can’t really write men and women anymore. How should I address you? Beloved comrades of the Gates? Dear readers? Your social justice warriors (or whiners, as I see them) are spreading with gusto and enthusiasm to Europe. Amsterdam and the Dutch Railways NS will no longer use proper genders, as it might offend some seriously disturbed people. Men who think they are women and vice versa.

Amsterdam also wants to ban smoking in its entirety within the city, while we are at it.

To start with the latter, I merely have one simple question: tobacco is a huge cash cow for any government. Do you honestly believe your government will simply forgo that enormous source of income? If smoking is banned, are you going to pay it? If you, activist non smoker, don’t want to pay it, who should? The (now ex) smokers have stopped, as you desired. They can’t afford it anymore. It’s your turn, or do you really think it works any differently?

Now back to the gender-benders. I happen to live in one of the few countries on earth with a fairly substantial percentage of ‘kathoeys’ as we call them or ladyboys. Men who feel they should have been born women, or women who feel they should be born as men. Mainly men, though. Very few women. I’ve met quite a few here in my 25 years in Thailand, and I’m still mystified by them.

Many of them begin to notice their different feelings in high school. They very often dress as girls, which means wearing girls’ uniforms in school or university. In Thailand everyone in the educational system wears a uniform. Red in preschool, khaki in primary school, blue in high school and black on universities. Girls wear skirts, boys trousers. You are probably amazed to hear that points for good behavior are also given on universities. Berkeley activists very likely wouldn’t be able to graduate from a Thai university… However, ladyboys are allowed to wear skirts in most universities and a lot of high schools.

Some schools set up ‘third gender’ bathrooms, if the number of ladyboys is high enough to warrant the extra cost. Thais are fairly easy going with regard to sexuality. Don’t get me wrong — boinking in the streets is a definite no-no. Showing affection in public is also frowned upon. Kissing in public for example, is something not really done here. Whatever you do, you do it in private.

Thailand is a Buddhist country, with no real monotheistic stigma on sex. If you’re hungry, you eat. If you’re thirsty, you drink. If you feel randy, well … Fill in the blanks. But not in public! Most boys loose their virginity in brothels, where they are taken by their peers. On one hand, Thais are very prudish, much more so than in the West. On the other hand, anything goes. It never ceases to amaze me.

Living together as a gay couple is completely normal here. But not legally married. My Dutch marriage is not valid in Thailand. Funnily enough, about half the residents of my condominium live together. Nobody blinks an eye. There is talk about legalizing gay marriage, but there is also talk about legalizing marijuana or building the Kra canal. Don’t hold your breath, though.

Parents aren’t exactly thrilled with joy if their son decides he’d rather be a girl, and starts acting as one. But mostly they go along with it. Nor are their peers very sympathetic. Teasing and bullying happen a lot. That’s why ladyboys often stick together, and probably one reason why there are so many in Thailand. The older ladyboys get the hormones the younger ones want but cannot buy in the pharmacy due to the age limit. The pill is only available for 16 and over.

Now the darker side of the story. If you’re young you are immortal. Death is somewhere far, far away in the future. Other people die. Not you. Same goes for beauty. Beauty eventually fades away. No matter what you do. Most of us accept that fact, but it is something extremely difficult for kathoeys to accept. Not surprisingly, the suicide rate is unbelievably high amongst them.

Politically correct activists will tell you immediately that is because they have very few opportunities in life. True, most of them end up in prostitution, crime or as a hairdressers for ladies. A few find work in a cross-dress cabaret. Alcazar in Pattaya is world famous, and highly recommended. Also in Pattaya gangs of ladyboys are notorious. Remember you’re dealing with a bloke here, even though they can look petite. Most of them have a lot of (practical) experience in Muay Thai kick boxing, which helps greatly with robberies or purse-snatching.

Almost all of them desire something that is manifestly impossible: marry a rich Westerner for life who isn’t into ladyboys… Your chances of winning the lottery are a lot better even if you don’t play.

Yes, they are much better accepted here than in the West. Still, they are on the fringe of society. Some became famous TV stars. I met one of them. S/he is about my age, but looks a lot better. Most of them aren’t that lucky or capable. Old age will catch up with them a vengeance. That’s when a lot of them discover that their life really is over. I’ve seen some really ugly ladyboys aged 50 or over. Plain scary in the dark. They didn’t care, but most do. The suicide rate is obscenely high. I’ve read reports which show that nearly half of all ladyboys commit suicide for some reason sooner or later.

Nobody really likes growing old; women especially tend to spend a lot of money and effort to look pretty. That amount of money and effort dwarfs with what ladyboys have to go through. They literally sacrifice their manhood and dedicate their entire lives pursuing an impossible ideal. I’ve met some ladyboys even a blind man could spot a mile away. Way too tall, shoulders too broad, voice too low. Mannerisms too burlesque. Most of them are more difficult to spot, but somehow I rarely miss them. I don’t recall ever meeting a lady who wasn’t a lady and not knowing it. Perhaps when I just had arrived in Thailand, but one learns quickly.

Yes, I agree that being able to pursue a more meaningful career could help. Better understanding might help too, though (Western) activists have no idea what that word really means. Thai acceptance goes light years further than most people think possible. Still, about half of the teenage boys who start dressing up commit suicide later in life. That’s not because they live on the bottom of society; lots of people do here. Simply because Sic transit gloria mundi or in plain English Thus passes the glory of the world. I’m absolutely certain many if not most of them end their lives because they can’t accept that.

That’s in Thailand, where acceptance of ‘the third gender’ is the most tolerant in the world. No other nation even comes close. So why, all of a sudden, are the progressive left fighting to “liberate” what I know to be very sick puppies? Actually, real gay people have already been thrown in front of the bus. If you happen to be gay, don’t want to have kids and don’t think the right to adopt is an inalienable gay right, and most of all, if you are gay and find mohammedans rather questionable with regard to gay issues, you are a bloody nazi in the eyes of the left. Why?

Part of it is ignorance. Hardly a soul knows what I just wrote down from personal experience. Fighting for issues to annoy your elders is now a Western tradition. What was shocking at Woodstock is old hat now. Not shocking enough. We’ve had the punk fashion where people seriously mutilate themselves with paper clips and weird hairdos. When that didn’t shock anymore people converted to islam. What else is left? Self-mutilation itself is nothing unusual in history. Lots of religious sects practiced it and practice it today; for example the priests in the Cybele cult did. As with kathoeys, they did it strictly voluntarily.

Be realistic. I know half of those ladyboys commit suicide, but did you? Of course not. Neither do Berkeley students who demonstrate for the equal rights of seriously mentally sick people. Would they demonstrate for the right to play Russian roulette? Of course not, even though your chances are a lot better with one rather than three bullets in the chamber.

But the dark secret here is planning. Communism ruled for 74 years. It went bust, but never really died. They regrouped and are now back with a vengeance. They operate under different names. Almost all previous communist groups call themselves socialist or green. Their activism is exactly the same. They merely changed tactics. Of course ladyboys make lousy soldiers. “Chelsea” Manning is a shining example. Assume it (he? she?) was not only given a full pardon but also a rank and a combat position under the Hillary Clinton administration. Not possible, because poor Chelsea needs lots of attention from psychiatrists, specialized doctors, expensive and rare medications, special treatment, understanding troopers and god knows what else. It couldn’t fight itself out of a sleeping kindergarten, let alone anything more dangerous.

Imagine the military gets the order to hire those seriously deranged people unconditionally. Not much of an army would remain, would it? Now imagine those sick puppies in the police and the civil service. Why fight a revolution yourself, if you can emasculate your enemy far more easily?

Also consider the mohammedan view on genders. Not much to debate here. Either you’re male, or you’re property of a male (= female). No other choices. Apart from a few stonings and a high building to jump from here and there. That elusive moderate mohammedan (a breed much rarer than living dodos) doesn’t want to have anything to do with it, but what the heck. Never interrupt your enemy when he’s making a mistake! The moderate mohammedan will see Chelsea as a kind of goat at best. You can hump it, for want of anything better. That’s as far as it goes. A real mohammedan wouldn’t want to touch it even with a ten feet pole. Unless there’s an ax attached.

But Western governments are seriously distracted by this issue, the media stoke up the fire, and the attention is focused away from real issues. Addressing men and women ‘properly, with equality’ is so much more important than illegal immigrants or the war against the West mohammedans are fighting.

I spoke more than 30 years ago with one of those activists. We had a few beers and he was well in his cups. In vino veritas, as they say. I’ve never forgotten it, neither should you. “Sure, I know very well we’ll never win a democratic election. Utterly impossible. We also know that we (extreme right wing and left wing alike) only gain popular support during times of great distress. That’s what we want to achieve. A civil war of some sort. Only then we will be able to win.”

Do remember that.

  1. H.Numan is telling the truth. Transgenderism is commonplace here in Thailand but without the fuss. The controversy about transgenderism in western countries is at least a diversion from more important issues.

    Has anyone tried to find out exactly how many people are afflicted with this hysteria? I refuse to believe it is a significant number but as usual the left is inflating the issue to a level far greater than it merits.

    This is nothing more than a diversion while the globalists steal the world from under us.

  2. You are uncommonly free of fuzzy thinking.

    We had a commenter recently who explained how the U.S. was doing it wrong, not treating its trans people correctly. I quote here what I responded with at that point. (and, yes, the suicide rate is high, even among the young):

    Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry, said that transgenderism is a “mental disorder” that merits treatment, that sex change is “biologically impossible,” and that people who promote sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder.

    Dr. McHugh, the author of six books and at least 125 peer-reviewed medical articles, made his remarks in a recent commentary in the Wall Street Journal, where he explained that transgender surgery is not the solution for people who suffer a “disorder of ‘assumption’” – the notion that their maleness or femaleness is different than what nature assigned to them biologically.

    He also reported on a new study showing that the suicide rate among transgendered people who had reassignment surgery is 20 times higher than the suicide rate among non-transgender people. Dr. McHugh further noted studies from Vanderbilt University and London’s Portman Clinic of children who had expressed transgender feelings but for whom, over time, 70%-80% “spontaneously lost those feelings.”

    Currently, there are children who are being treated with sex hormones that will delay/distort the onset of adolescence to “fix” their gender dysphoria. In response, the American College of Pediatricians has issued their findings:

    1. Human sexuality is an objective biological binary trait: “XY” and “XX” are genetic markers of male and female, respectively – not genetic markers of a disorder.

    2. No one is born with a gender. Everyone is born with a biological sex. Gender (an awareness and sense of oneself as male or female) is a sociological and psychological concept; not an objective biological one.

    3. A person’s belief that he or she is something they are not is, at best, a sign of confused thinking.

    4. Puberty is not a disease and puberty-blocking hormones can be dangerous.

    5. According to the DSM-V, as many as 98% of gender confused boys and 88% of gender confused girls eventually accept their biological sex after naturally passing through puberty.

    6. Pre-pubertal children diagnosed with gender dysphoria may be given puberty blockers as young as eleven, and will require cross-sex hormones in later adolescence to continue impersonating the opposite sex. These children will never be able to conceive any genetically related children even via artificial reproductive technology. In addition, cross-sex hormones (testosterone and estrogen) are associated with dangerous health risks including but not limited to cardiac disease, high blood pressure, blood clots, stroke, diabetes, and cancer.

    7. Rates of suicide are nearly twenty times greater among adults who use cross-sex hormones and undergo sex reassignment surgery, even in Sweden which is among the most LGBTQ – affirming countries.

    8. Conditioning children into believing a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse.

    Note: Homosexuality is a given in all cultures. That is not the same as the gender-bending p.c. nonsense. Nor are transvestites in the same category at all. They are a tertium quid, driven mostly by the desire to be on exhibit. It’s sad…

  3. I find it interesting that this transgenderism, but “refugees welcome” also, is so hard hitting solely on the countries of the old “West”.

    That kind of implies, that the current situation really is the outcome of the cold war. You see, “agents of subversion” have not been planted in the Eastern Europe – and if they were, then they had to be the agents of the good old “American” values like freedom of speech and so on.

    That is why Eastern Europe today stands in amazement, seeing the degeneracy of the “West”. People who grew under communism always wanted to live in the west: But it was the west of 1945-1990. Not the West of 2017 – which is sad.

    • Very correct and spot-on observation. The East of Europe is now preserving the values of the West as the Western Europe has gone mental … reasons for why the east is sane and not succumbing to the western politkorekt malaise are not always obvious. Be they as they may, we are the West now …

    • The mass promotion of degeneracy in Western countries to Western people is all part of the grand plan.

      The goal is to completely reprogram Westerns to be incapable of effective resistance, and then voluntarily extinguish themselves from existence.

  4. A very lucid article. I would agree with the author on most points. I do sympathise with transgenders as I do with all people afflicted with a mental disease, but to treat their wish to be something they can never be is counterproductive. Instead of honestly telling a person that he or she has a problem, we tell them that they are perfectly all right and encourage them to get even worse. (They might, for example, believe that their dream of a happy marriage with a straight man may come true and feel extremely frustrated when they find out it is impossible).

    And, what is probable worse, by doing so, we impose a lie on society as a whole. People at large are not just encouraged, but rather ordered to believe that sexual deviations are absolutely normal and even ‘positive’. Of course, most people feel, if not consciously understand, that this is utter rubbish, but they are increasingly afraid of saying so. They pretend and often honestly try to believe in an obvious lie. Thus, people get muddled and their ability to tell a truth from a falsehood gets diminished. Besides, living in a lie is a bit traumatising, it leads to internal conflicts and various psychological problems.

    It is especially dangerous for children and nowadays, as the discussion of sexual deviations is omnipresent, it is difficult for them to escape it.

    Thus, this disproportionate public attention given to sexual perversions is far from innocuous. It does not just distract us from more pressing issues, it also creates a very unhealthy psychological climate.

  5. Confusion reigns in the West. I was once a social worker years ago and came across these cases of “Transgender”. Most were deeply disturbed people and placing three year olds on hormone blockers and later on Oestrogen is child abuse. Most end up in asylums and suicide. To treat this as a kind of trendy fashion is just plain evil.

    I call it “gender appropriation” and it does not stop there. For years I have watched as Western history is rewritten to suit all these weird fixations- all done by Marxist “cultural historians”. They started in Spain in the 1950s to recreate the Islamic history of “Andalucia”.

    I lived there during the 1980s. It was painful seeing the lies and distortions peddled by the liars to suit their agenda. The Cathedral in Sevilla is now being ‘claimed back’ as a “Mosque”, despite it being a stolen Catholic foundation in the 700sAD.

    I spent time in Egypt digging in the Giza area and in the Valley of the Kings. I met Dr Hasawa Head of the Antiquities in the country. He used to go “ballistic” when Afro-centric Americans claimed that Egypt and its achievements was “Black”. In the last few months there has been an explosion of videos spouting this garbage, that has now reached into British schools and a supposed Black Roman Britannia. I have seen young students I sometimes lecture trying to convince me we owe all of our civilisation to “Black Africa” and they are incredibly aggressive.

    It seems anything goes in modern relativism. Our objective empirical judgement is gone. This is the western sickness. Anything is what you want it to be. I feel like a ? No problem. Gender is a “fluid” system for the Generation X.

    Thank God I am in my 60s. I cannot live with this hypocritical stupidity. When I left mainstream academia 20 years ago, it was already bad but now it is next to impossible. I will not tell lies to suit people’s “feelings”. I have even been threatened with arrest for saying things these SJWs don’t like.

  6. Some of the Egyptian statues are made from black obsidian and dark wood. These are now claimed as “black”. It could be seen as hilarious but one is afraid I cannot smile or find amusing wanton destruction of civilisational achievements by ignoramuses and iconoclasts.

  7. I read that in Iran, changing gender is not banned, since there is no text in the Koran against it… hence it has the second-highest number of “ladyboys” in the world, who change their sex so that they’re not caught in a homosexual relationship…

    As for smoking – at my previous work (where I spent 8 years), all the interesting chatter (about who’s going where, for how much etc) was during the cigarette break… since I didn’t smoke, I missed out on much of that – so I deeply regret not smoking! Earlier, many of the heroes of the gemeration which we have to thank for living in a democracy, rather than a Nazi ghetto or concentration camp (or not living at all) were smoking whenever they had a chance, during a lull in the fighting… and because of the stress, they needed it. Maybe then smoking does have something going for it, which our new sterile snowflake generations are now missing out on?

    • I don’t know if there is anything good about smoking, but it is definitely hypocritical to impose draconian measures against tobacco smoking and, at the same time, legalise marijuana.

    • nicotine has healing effects on nerve cells. Plus tobbaco is a peace pipe: it can and will calm you down in case you get angry.

      But that’s too old school I think – you better go to the pharmacy and buy some pills.

      • Nicotine is a poison, a toxin!
        Also it’s been proven that tobacco plants draw radio isotopes into themselves and deposit them in their leaves.

        Cannabis ISN’T toxic and doesn’t have the radio isotope problem.

        Ingesting nicotine WILL cause cancers.
        Ingesting cannabis FIGHTS/PREVENTS cancers (all types)!!

        Now ask big pharma and big alcohol/tobacco WHY they still fund anti-cannabis programs like lying DARE campaigns and decriminalization efforts??..

        It’s all about CONTROL/MONEY!!

  8. An interesting and thoughtful article. It may be that there are different forms of gender dysphoria (for want of a better term. E.g:

    1. Culturally accepted as described in the article.

    2.A genuine mismatch between biological sex and gender identity for which surgery is the best option – for which a number of individual examples can be given.

    3. Part of a wider psychological identity issue, such as some form of modern day alienation, for which surgery is not necessarily appropriate.

  9. Please add to my above comment.

    It may also be the case that some doctors are over enthusiastic about transgender surgery, as happened with multiple personality disorder due to childhood sexual abuse where a few doctors got carried away and saw it everywhere.

  10. Transgender is a term used to characterize individuals who employ surgical procedures to enhance their ” Cross dressing” impulses. Of course they cannot change their biological identity. Simply put ; It’s all in their heads”. Sad.

  11. Isn’t it part of the regressives’ desire to find as many ways as possible to undermine and then destroy at any cost western christian civilisation?

      • It appears from the article that the Buddhist Thai civilisation tolerates but does not idolise them. In fact, Thai society is rather conservative and patriarchal in its Buddhist way.

  12. The findings of the US Paediatricians, referenced by Dymphna, conclude by making a point that should have remained blindingly obvious to all sane people: ‘Conditioning children into believing a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse.’

    I find myself overwhelmed by sadness and moral revulsion for the foetid swamp of diseased evil the West – my own benighted society – is roiling around in.

    Such profound and general wickedness and insanity is too mired in its own filth ever to be made clean again – for you can’t help those who won’t help themselves – – – Correction: You cannot help those who not only do not recognise that they are in need of help, but who also militantly promote their perversions as entirely normal, and moreover look askance at those who do not take liberties with nature.

    Our world of sinners who are so utterly lost to moral reason is doomed to sink into a cesspit of such horror, that the lowest Circle of Dante’s robust imagination would not be equal to it. This is the Hell which clear-sighted Christianity foresaw over two millennia ago. Whether a new and morally-cleansed humanity will survive to replace the self-condemned, in a new and hopeful world, only believers possessed of a strong faith can be certain.

    Most of us are living in suppressed despair and terror at the appalling prospect that confronts humanity – a doom that is rushing on apace, and will involve us all, except those of an ideal, and eternally lost, innocence.

    Life begins in hope and ends in disgust. Our species may have proven such a profound disappointment to any Creator that He will long since have closed His eyes of care, and dismissed us from His saving Presence, as being an intolerable reproach to his existence. God is probably no longer able to sustain His ideal thoughts, in conflict with such Satanic reality, and has slept the sleep of ages, and become one with the Nightmare born of human folly.

    God surely died of a broken heart – then awoke, changed utterly, as a revengeful sadist, bitter at His betrayal.

    We have forfeited all comfort in this world, and the next world is only this world made more relentless, in which we are eternally naked and helpless before those ravening fiends, who once bore the semblance of our fellows, and our loved ones. Each hating the other for their pain.

    Such crowds press into the Chambers of Death!

    • Well written, agreed, exactly what i feel day in day out,
      I see our world, societys crumbling akl around us, seemingly Under total attack by the so called utopian groups known as marxists, socialists, liberals, commies,

      This bunch of losers, who subscribe to this madness, and who are dragging us all into the fires of hell must be eliminated, like a cancer, cut out, and cut out again and again until it is no more.

      The horrors that await us all are now clearly set on the horizon, were under attack, surrounded like in the film, Zulu, its time to form a circle, fire and reload, fire and reload.

  13. So it all comes down to obedience to what God has ordained for us or rebellion against His created intent. Tain’t nothin’ changed since Eden.
    Compassionate prayers for them are called for as they need the Light of day in the best way.

    • In fact, from a Christian point of view, the mere fact that a person suffers is afflicted with transsexualism does not condemn him or her to damnation. Everything depends on what this person does about it.

      Father Porfyrios Kavsokalivitis, a 20th century Greek saint once remarked that, in the way of his pastoral duties, he met some pious young men who felt they were women and young women who felt they were men. They could not lead a normal family life, but they remained virgins for the sake of Jesus Christ. He said that these people had angelic souls.

      Unfortunately, our modern society overrates sex and regards an eventful sexual life as a prerequisite for happiness. Abstention, on the other hand, is viewed as a crippling pathology. This is an excellent example of a false received idea. If we take the trouble and look around, we will see that most promiscuous people are often very unhealthy and violently unhappy. Almost always they have very weak personalities. Those who strive to keep their passions under control are usually much stronger and more satisfied with life.

      Unfortunately, this is very hard to explain to people nowadays, as we live in a society where the very notion of the meaning of life is all but lost. People who lead meaningless lives simply do not see the point in sacrificing their pleasures, comfort or even silly whims, as they have nothing else.

      Of course, people conditioned that way are doomed to lose the civilisational battle against an enemy who has something to live and to die for.

  14. Tolerance is such a crock. Turns out our benighted ancestors were right in shunning and shaming the abnormal. In insisting that the path is narrow. That leaving the path is not liberation, it is death.

    Further thoughts: when the author writes “monotheistic stigma on sex” he knows not of what he speaks. Only with monotheism did sex become a sacrament.

    Another whopper: “Nobody really likes growing old.” Compared to the terrors and wastes of youth, age is like reaching high ground at last, like coming into a clearing. And, yes, dear writer, the older the better.

    The article has some interest but the mind of the writer is so accepting of the prejudices of our age, so second rate, that it’s like eating a spoilt meal.

  15. [Obscenity redacted]. I honestly have no words for you people. You make me sick and very sad. And thank God you only exist on my cell phone screen and soon you won’t exist at all.

    • Yet we are the ones capable of breeding. You, to the contrary, are handicapped by your inability to swim in our gene pool. It is yourself who exists in some sick and unsustainable fantasy. I would have ‘drawn it mild,’ but your implied political challenge to the acceptability of the male and female sexes, thus clearly dismissing the actual future of humanity, is too obscene to deserve my patient forbearance a moment longer.

    • It is not easy to come to the conclusion, that you’ve been misled by false righteousness. That is why truth has the tendency to hurt. Once you realise that the transgender way is not going to survive in the real world – because gays and transgenders will die out for solely biological reasons, and thus remain only as a small deviation from the norm – while simple stupid families with many kids gonna survive it all.

      • Why should a family with many kids be necessarily stupid? In my experience, one-child and no-child families are stupid as often as many-child families, if not more.

        In fact, at least, for a woman, bringing up several children is an excellent exercise to develop intelligence. She has to do so many vastly different tasks in one day, to resolve so many conflicts, to see rather different personalities growing and developing in front of her at close quarters that she really has to be very smart to make a good job of it.

    • Given the typical long-term outcomes for our respective peer groups, I will take this bet!

    • Mara J Transgender, please note how your contrary opinion was (after minor sanitizing) posted at this website. Would you care to provide all of us with an estimate of how likely any of the other comments here would be allowed to remain visible at a pro-transgender website?

      • It is interesting to note that activists of ultra-progressive causes, like transgenders’ rights, are usually much more totalitarian and intolerant (and so much more spiteful) than good old conservatives.

  16. After some cursory investigation, I have come to regard the use of puberty blockers on young children as a Western version of FGM (Female Genital Mutilation). Both permanently impair an individual’s ability to enjoy the sexual endowments of their originally assigned biological gender.

    Likewise, they contribute to extreme depression—a precursor of almost all suicides.

    Similarly, both commonly induce deep levels of regret which only tend to exacerbate many issues of comorbidity related to (treated or untreated) gender dysphoria. Too often, gender confusion is driven by external influences like, “sexual abuse, deep trauma, mental disorders, horrible loss, or terrible family circumstances in early life” (See: W. Heyer).

    Neither does chemo-surgical gender reassignment present much in the way of persuasive therapeutic promise with regard to positive treatment or resolution of these harmful, early-stage childhood experiences.

    Returning to the FGM analogy, this brutal and disfiguring procedure bears a strong resemblance to attempts at “emasculating” Muslim women. It excises a woman’s ability to access some of the most gratifying aspects of physical intimacy. Given the almost universal oppression and brutalization of women in Islam, the prevalence of FGM seems to limn out a form of institutionalized misogyny.

    When one examines the more recent emergence of disproportionate Feminist influence upon Western sociocultural psychology—Sweden being one of the most dramatic examples of this trend, right down to that nation’s flag—it obliges one to take pause and consider how much of this “feminization” is driving male gender dysphoria.

    This is vividly borne out by how male-to-female sex reassignments in the West outnumber female-to-male surgeries by somewhere between an almost 3X to 4.5X ratio.

    The global prevalence of transgender individuals has been estimated at approximately 1 per 11 900 to 1 per 45 000 for male-to-female individuals and approximately 1 per 30 400 to 1 per 200 000 for female-to-male individuals (See: Hess, Neto, et al).

    A prevalent marginalization of men is happening in everything from television roles (See: “‘Boys Are Stupid; Girls Are Awesome’ – Most TV Shows & Movies Today“, to the constellation of modern, single-parent families. That men happen to disproportionately suffer from gender dysphoria is no small wonder.

    Please feel free to contribute any of your own observations about this comparison of puberty blockers and FGM. Meanwhile, I’ll leave you with a grin:

    The Lumberjack Song

    • I am now in the process of writing an article about this, so thank you for some more sources 😉

      I came to very similar conclusion: That it might be the mothers, the female teachers, and also the media

      Simply put: The male nature is ridiculed and boys are disadvantaged so much so, they wish they could be girls…

      There are some quite significant studies about how boys tend not to get a single good word, and how boys are generally motivated through punishments (do it! or else…)

      – while girls are being put on the pedestal, never critisized, but actually encouraged by good words! Something that never ever happens to many boys…

      So – it is quite rational choice to switch genders, if you are actually punished for being a boy, and encouraged by female teachers and mothers to behave like a girl. The problem is – it is very very uninformed choice…

      It would be interesting so see some statistics on how many transgenders had complete families with fathers at home: My guess is – practically none of them.

        • Barn Swallow, thank you for the video link. I was searching for it to include in my previous post. I’ll pass this along to my friend who is working on this topic.

      • Yes, this must be an issue of both nature and nurture. As many children are nowadays brought up by single mothers, they do not get a clear idea of what the father’s role is, they are a bit confused about what makes men and women different and they get used to see a woman as a figure of authority. At school they are handed over to female teachers and even in church, if they ever venture there, they are likely to see female pastors.

        The authorities, the mainstream media and, worst of all, pop culture feed feminist propaganda to them, so if they have even a very weak inclination to homosexuality or transsexualism, these inclinations develop most successfully, while in another type of society many children would simply grow out of them.

        If, on the contrary, boys have no homosexual or transsexual tendencies, they might rebel and look for a male role model. In this case, pop culture serves them with ‘rebellious’ hypermacho characters, who are violent, unruly and utterly selfish and irresponsible. In fact, with a caricature of man at which feminists can conveniently point an accusing finger.

        Thus, by cherishing even weakest homosexual tendencies and by portraying manliness as something intrinsically brutal, ugly and dangerous, our society diminishes the chances of children’s normal development.

  17. Remember, the initial ‘research’ that lies at the root of this entire movement in the West was done by a perverted monster named John Money.

    His ‘treatment’ of his young male patients was so damaging that two of them committed suicide.

  18. Conscripts are chosen randomly from those eligable with a bag of black and white balls. Lady boys are technically eligible if they still have their penis but in practice if they have breasts not. Monks are not eligible unless they are obviously attempting to dodge the draft. Those in further education are also exempt as are shortarses.

  19. Obama’s nanny ‘Evie’ was an Indonesian ‘ladyman’ who went on to be a prostitute and then… who knows what end. It seems even in Muslim Indonesia to be fairly common to find trannies (most of them prostitutes).

  20. I am aware of someone who is transgender, & to my dismay I have heard them give voice to some rather dark thoughts & expressions of loneliness, etc. Having embraced their own sexuality & adopted the role of a “top” with some enthusiasm (!!), they appear to be in the position now where it is rather difficult to find a life partner: a male who will adopt a subservient role sexually, while being a more traditionally “assertive” man in the rest of their life. It’s hard enough for anyone to find a compatible partner, but when one’s choices are limited in that way, before one even starts looking, well I can understand the position that they are in. And as the original poster said, the clock’s ticking all the time. We all hear it, I suppose, but the ticking sound might be louder for some …
