More on Transgended Posted by One of Our Anons

From the American College of Pediatricians---Gender Ideology Harms Children

Some interesting points:

1. Human sexuality is an objective biological binary trait: "XY" and "XX" are genetic markers of health – not genetic markers of a disorder.

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

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.

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

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

Thanks to this Anon. I still wish all the Anons would come up with nicknames. If you can't come up with something to call yourself, perhaps you could contact the Donald. He is really good at it.

Even horses think it's OK to be transgender.


Will said...

Life is always simple for some. But then again, science is just a liberal conspiracy

Sarkazein said...

Will- Did you read your own link?

Sarkazein said...

This is another example of Liberalism's good intensions gone awry. There have been so many. The vast spread of AIDES was encouraged by liberalism as this disease became political. Many needlessly died because of liberal good intentions gone awry. Same with transgenderism. Liberalism for the sake of political correctness might feel they have to encourage someone and congratulate them for their decision to undergo surgery and chemical adjustment only for that person to be more likely to commit suicide or be subject to all the negatives that will follow them.

Will said...

The link you posted to the American College of Pediatrics is a small conservative advocacy group with less than 200 members formed in opposition to the American Academy of Pediatrics, the national group with over 60,000. I don't say it makes the Academy more correct but it's only correct to include both their views.

It doesn't take much to condemn people, it takes work to understand.

Sarkazein said...

Will- Which of the 8 points in the post do you say are a lie or proven to be not true?

Anonymous said...

Okay, all you transgender supporters -- here's a question for you:

Should a biological male who identifies as a female be allowed to compete against females in high school and collegiate athletics and be eligible to receive scholarships that are intended for females? If a biological male who identifies as female can use a women's restroom and locker room, can they compete as females against females?

I ask because, as you may already know, it's already happening, and some people worry that males will have a competitive advantage and the persons most hurt by this will be women seeking athletic scholarships to college.

No takers on my question from last night? Not surprising -- tough question to answer. To answer honestly will cause the whole transgender house-of-cards arguments to collapse.

If you say, "Yes, men who identify as women SHOULD be able to compete against women for athletic scholarship, then one could reasonably expect more men to CLAIM to be transgender in order to win scholarships. Only problem? Women -- and I mean REAL women who are were BORN women -- will have a tougher time winning those same scholarships and will be harmed by such a policy.

BUT, if you say, "No, men that are biologically male and have average body size and muscle mass greater than the average women should NOT be able to compete against women because of a competitive advantage, then you've just admitted that there IS a biological difference that FEELINGS cannot undo.

Liberals are anti-science.

Dickson said...

Maybe you should do a little checking into your sources before posting this kind of crap.

Wolf's Head said...

Maybe you should check YOUR sources Dick.

SPLC is just another lefty money milking machine for Dees and his cronies, manufacturing hate groups to bilk money from stupid democrats.

Dickson said...

Those look like VERY reputable sources... I like that they have absolutely no vested interest whatsoever in misrepresenting the SPLC. I'm sure too that the SPLC just places groups like the one you're defending on its hate watch list to scam money. That makes total sense. I'm sure if the SPLC just randomly posted false information no one would care at all and they'd never, ever be sued... right? When the American College of Pediatricians files and wins a lawsuit against the SPLC for libel, be sure to let me know, ok? You know you've lost any and all ability you may have ever had to be objective about any issue right Wolf's Head?

Democratus Rex said...

Rhodesia is his shining example of good, conservative government.

Wolf's Head said...

Never claimed to be objective, just right.

And your continuing support of a left wing hate monger such as SPLC just confirms your lack of objectivity.

Did somebody just fart? Oh, drex again.

Sarkazein said...

Dickson- News you have no way of knowing about CLICK HERE

Sarkazein said...

I just noticed my link was a repeat of Wolf'sHead's link. Well, maybe Dickson will read at least one of them and see what he's missing in this decade's events.

Nobody said...

Dickson attacks a source as biased by using a biased source. And absolute NO attempt to address the POINTS made. Typical liberal tactic -- ignore the argument and attack the messenger.

Which points are inaccurate, Dickson?

Is biological sex NOT determined by chromosomes?

The DSM-V is NOT a publication issued by this particular source but is used by mental health professionals. This source simply quoted numbers from the DSM-V in point #5. Is it NOT true, then, that 98% of gender confused boys and 88% of gender confused girls eventually accept their biological sex after naturally passing through puberty? If those numbers are NOT correct, please point us to a source with different numbers.

Is the suicide rate quoted NOT correct, even in "gay affirming" societies? Source?

To support and encourage people, and especially young people, to embrace something that may not be real (in many cases -- see above numbers) and could result in harm to that person (suicide) is dangerous and irresponsible. This is all typical of people who value emotional arguments over logical ones.

If I decide to identify as a bird and wish to try to fly by jumping off of a ten story building, which course of action would be more responsible -- to convince me to seriously consider whether or not I am a bird, or to encourage my "choice" and "feelings?"

I fully expect you or other liberals here to respond with a sarcastic remark that I should jump off of a building because I have dared to question your position...

guy faulkes said...

It is amusing that Dickson feels that the Wolf has " lost any and all ability you may have ever had to be objective about any issue right Wolf's Head? ". In having discussed issues with the Wolf for over a quarter of a century, i can assure you he can back up any statement he makes on any topic. (as he has aptly demonstrated here)

Dickson, when you can use logic in your discussions, maybe you will be taken seriously. Of course it make take you until the twelfth of never to be able to accomplish this.

Do not attack the source. Attack the points made by the source. Hover, the result of this will be that the Wolf will answer your attack and hand you your lunch again.

Sarkazein said...

Nobody- Both Will and Dickson have now been asked which points they disagree with. Cricket noise. To add a question, which points are "hateful"?

Wolf's Head said...

"Nobody- Both Will and Dickson have now been asked which points they disagree with. Cricket noise. To add a question, which points are "hateful"?"

All points not theirs are "hateful" to them.

Not acquiescing to lefty orders is "hateful" to them.

Being free of their control is "hateful" to them.

Whitey said...

An example of what the left wants to do to those who don't toe their line.

Yep, physical violence is ALWAYS in the lefty playbook.

Anonymous said...

And STILL no one who supports "transgender rights" wants to answer my question? Should a biological male who identifies as female be allowed to compete against biological females? Should biological males who do so be eligible to receive athletic scholarships intended for women? Still waiting....obviously there are people reading here who support "transgender rights" as evidenced by comments from Dickson and Democratic Rex. Care to offer an opinion?

Sarkazein said...

Anonymous 8:06 PM- The Leftists can't answer the question, they can only hate those who question their misguided beliefs.
