Institutionalizing Transgender Ideology Powered By Over $400 Million

It’s about the money.

The transgender ideology is being funded by wealthy donors and investors in the drug, surgery, and healthcare industries, says Jenifer Bilek, a New York-based feminist.

Lifetime medical patients.

The massive medical and technological infrastructure expansion for a tiny (but growing) fraction of the population with gender dysphoria, along with the money being funneled to this project by those heavily invested in the medical and technology industries, seems to make sense only in the context of expanding markets for changing the human body. 

I found exceedingly rich, white men with enormous cultural influence are funding the transgender lobby and various transgender organizations. These include but are not limited to Jennifer Pritzker (a male who identifies as transgender); George Soros; Martine Rothblatt (a male who identifies as transgender and transhumanist); Tim Gill(a gay man); Drummond Pike; Warren and Peter Buffett; Jon Stryker (a gay man); Mark Bonham (a gay man); and Ric Weiland (a deceased gay man whose philanthropy is still LGBT-oriented). Most of these billionaires fund the transgender lobby and organizations through their own organizations, including corporations…

These men and others, including pharmaceutical companies and the U.S. government, are sending millions of dollars to LGBT causes. Overall reported global spending on LGBT is now estimated at $424 million. From 2003-2013, reported funding for transgender issues increased more than eightfold, growing at threefold the increase of LGBTQ funding overall, which quadrupled from 2003 to 2012. This huge spike in funding happened at the same time transgenderism began gaining traction in American culture …

Much more important than funds going directly to the LGBT lobby and organizations, only a fraction of which trickles down to assist people who identify as transgender, is the money invested by the men mentioned above, governments, and technology and pharmaceutical corporations to institutionalize and normalize transgenderism as a lifestyle choice. They are shaping the narrative about transgenderism and normalizing it within the culture using their funding methods …

Bodily diversity [promotion] appears to be the core issue, not gender dysphoria[treatment]; that and unmooring people from their biology via language distortions, to normalize altering human biology. Institutionalizing transgender ideology does just this. This ideology is being promoted as a civil rights issue by wealthy, white, men with enormous influence who stand to personally benefit from their political activities.  TheFederalist

 

We Must Celebrate Heterosexuality: Deputy Head At Top Girls’ School Warns Of Danger Of Focus On Gay And Transgender Issues

Reason and Common Sense.

A deputy head at a top girls’ school has warned of the ‘real danger’ of heterosexuality being ignored in favour of lessons on gay and transgender issues.

Cathy Ellott, pastoral deputy of St Mary’s Ascot, said it is important to continue to discuss relationships between men and women because this is the ‘majority experience’.

She added that such partnerships should be ‘learned about and celebrated’ in schools so that children are prepared for adult life.

She also said her all-girls Catholic boarding school in Berkshire is rejecting a wider trend of using gender-neutral language.

Many institutions have chosen to simply refer to pupils as ‘students’ so that transgender youngsters do not feel alienated, but Mrs Ellott said St Mary’s would continue to identify itself as ‘a school for girls’.

Her comments, made in an interview with the Independent School Parent magazine, come after the Government introduced compulsory relationships classes for children of all ages. The lessons must include material about same-sex relationships and transgender issues to comply with the Equality Act.

A number of schools are already teaching children as young as five about gay relationships and gender dysphoria. Mrs Ellott said that while pupils at St Mary’s were taught about LGBT issues, such issues are not the focus of relationships lessons.

She warned there was a ‘real danger’ that too much emphasis on alternative lifestyles could sow confusion in youngsters.

She added: ‘There is a danger that the other sexualities are discussed, and heterosexuality – which is the majority experience – is ignored rather than learned about and celebrated.’ At St Mary’s, girls discuss transgender issues as part of its PSHE (personal, social, health and economic) studies, and relationship and sex education, ‘within the context of its Catholic ethos’.

Mrs Ellott said: ‘This means that, although the girls are educated about transgender issues, they are encouraged to develop their own response to these issues, guided by their faith.’  DailyMail

Israeli Researchers Debunk Transgender Craze Sweeping America – Men Are Men And Women Are Women

Common sense.  Not feelings but biology.

A new study by Israeli researchers found that a man cannot become a woman by simply “identifying” as one and vice versa.

Geneticists from Israel’s Weizmann Institute of Science discovered certain genes that are only expressed in women, while others are only expressed in men.

Professor Shmuel Pietrokovski and Dr. Moran Gershoni studied 20,000 genes, sorting them by sex, and searching for differences in expression in each tissue.

They eventually found around “6,500 genes with activity that was biased toward one sex or the other in at least one tissue, adding to the already major biological differences between men and women.”

Some of the biggest differences were in genes responsible for body hair, fat storage, muscle building, and milk production for breastfeeding.

The researchers also found that biological sex also plays a role in preventing specific illnesses.  For example, some genes expressed only in the left ventricle of the heart in women work to protect their hearts from disease until the women reach menopause.  Another gene, in the liver, processes drugs differently according to the gender.

Essentially, their research means more than 21 percent of the entire human genome, which is composed of about 30,000 genes, are based on sex — something a sex change operation and hormones cannot replace.  CBN

Not Feelings -Biology

In layman’s terms, a man is a man and a woman is a woman, not because they feel like one or the other, but because the science of biology tells us so.

It is always stunning how proponents of the ultra-liberal agenda will attack people of faith for believing in God absent scientific proof, but are more than willing to throw the science of biology right out the window when it comes to the question of gender. IsraelToday

Transgender Lessons For Two-Year-Olds In Great Britian

This has nothing to do with helping children and everything to do with confusing, corrupting, and using children to further a radical agenda.

Drag queens are being brought into taxpayer-funded nursery schools so that children as young as two can learn about transgender issues.

The cross-dressers are reading nursery rhymes and singing specially adapted songs ‘to teach children about LGBT tolerance’.

Nursery bosses say the sessions are needed so that children can ‘see people who defy rigid gender restrictions’ and grow up to combat hate crime.

They want to target two and three-year-olds to influence them early, as they say at this age children have not yet developed any discriminatory ‘isms’.

The ‘performances’ are the brainchild of Thomas Canham, a Bristol University law graduate and part-time cross-dresser who dismisses traditional notions of masculinity as ‘meaningless’.

Impressionable

But critics last night said the sessions could ‘blind impressionable children of two and three to one of the most basic facts of human existence’.

Leading child psychotherapist Dilys Daws, co-author of the book Finding Your Way With Your Baby, feared they could sow the seeds of confusion in young children about their own sexual identity, with long-term consequences.

Reality

She said: ‘There’s this idea that’s sweeping the country that being transgender is an “ordinary situation”. It’s getting so much publicity that it’s getting children thinking that they might be transgender, when it otherwise wouldn’t have occurred to them.

‘But it’s perfectly normal for most young children to think about being the opposite sex. It’s probably because they are identifying with a parent or sibling.’

Norman Wells, director of the Family Education Trust, said: ‘One of the most disturbing things about the transgender agenda is the way that it tries to distort our perception of reality and deny something as fundamental as the distinction between male and female.’  DailyMail

Florida Fifth-Grade ‘Gender Neutral’ Teacher Reassigned To Adult Education

Chloe Bressack, the fifth-grade math and science teacher that seems to deny biology and not understand English grammar rules has been transferred to Adult education.

Basic rules of English grammar dictate that singular nouns take singular pronouns and plural nouns take plural pronouns.

So when a fifth-grade teacher requested that students address her with nongendered pronouns such as “they” and “them,” it stirred consternation among parents (if not education officials) in the state’s capital city — and abroad.

Chloe Bressack, a 23-year-old math and science teacher at Canopy Oaks Elementary School in Tallahassee, recently sent a letter to parents that has gone viral on social media and made international headlines.

“One thing you should know about me is that I use gender neutral terms,” Ms. Bressack said in the single-page letter. “My prefix is Mx. (pronounced Mix). Additionally, my pronouns are ‘they, them, their’ instead of ‘he, his, she, hers.’ I know it takes some practice for it to feel natural, but in my experience, students catch on pretty quickly.”

Parents, however, didn’t catch on as quickly and complained to the school’s and the school district’s administrators, who expressed support for the young teacher.

Still, Ms. Bressack issued another statement apologizing for any confusion her first letter may have caused.

“My practice in addressing my students is to refer to them by their personal pronouns, be they ‘he, she, or they.’ We work together to create a positive environment of respect and understanding,” the teacher wrote. “I understand that students will not always address me in the way I prefer, and that is okay. We keep moving with a smile and continue on with our learning. In our classroom, our learning and our well-being is the priority. I am lucky to be teaching at Canopy Oaks and I look forward to working with my students this year.”

Her grammar lesson exploded across social networks and attracted the bemused attention of Britain’s Daily Mail and Switzerland’s Ticinonews.

On Tuesday, the Leon County School District announced that Ms. Bressack would be transferred to an adult basic education program effective immediately.

“Given the complexity of this issue, we both agreed a different environment would be best for Teacher Bressack’s educational career and for the young students at Canopy Oaks,” Superintendent Rocky Hanna said in a statement. WashingtonTimes

12-Year-Old Boy ‘Transitions’ To Female, Changed Mind Two Years Later

A 12-year-old is not mature enough to make this type of decision.  The process of transitioning back to a boy includes surgery.

“I began to realize I was actually comfortable in my body. Every day I just felt better,” Patrick Mitchell said.

In an upcoming episode of the Australian “60 Minutes,” a 12-year-old transgender boy details how he began the transition to a become a girl, only to change his mind two years later.

As a young child, Patrick Mitchell had always wanted to be a girl, the Independent reported. “You wish you could just change everything about you, you just see any girl and you say, ‘I’d kill to be like that,'” Mitchell told interviewers.

After speaking with doctors, Mitchell was diagnosed with gender dysphoria and began taking estrogen hormones in anticipation of a full transition. Mitchell grew out his hair and the treatment caused the prepubescent boy to grow a pair of breasts.

When teachers began to call him a girl in class, however, Mitchell began to question if he made the correct decision. “I began to realize I was actually comfortable in my body. Every day I just felt better,” he said.  FreeBeacon

The harsh truth is, the adults surrounding Mitchell who encouraged his transition failed him. While they might have had good intentions, facilitating a young boy’s “transition” comes with life-long emotional and physical affects.

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.  The Blaze

As Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro put it, “Adults should be free to make decisions about their sexuality and their bodies. But children should not be subjected to the whims of politically driven adults when it comes to massive bodily mutilation that impairs function for a lifetime – all before the child has experienced puberty.”

Jeremiah 31:3

Australia is considering legalizing same-sex marriage.  A non-binding postal survey will be conducted in September that will gauge support one way or the other.

“Should the law be changed to allow same-sex couples to marry?”

In August a group of psychologists released a guide urging parents and teachers to be supportive of children questioning their gender identity and to back gay marriage.   The guide is from the Australian Psychological Society,

“Another misconception is that some people worry that children will be harmed in same-sex families, and believe that children do better when they have both a mother and father. This is not true, but also irrelevant to the marriage equality debate,” the guide claims in its advice to parents on what they should tell their children about marriage…

What is more, the guide tells parents to let their children know “that it’s OK to question one’s sexual orientation (i.e., who you are attracted to) or one’s gender identity, and that there are many different ways for people to ‘be’ in the world.” ChristianPost

We know and science confirms that it is best if children have two parents – one dad and one mom.    That  gender ideology harms children and the American College of Pediatrics position on transgenderism of children, it is child abuse.

Normalizing homosexuality has a slick propaganda marketing momentum. The leftist entertainment culture, the news media, and the educational establishment celebrate and push an ideological from a  small minority as if it is the mainstream majority  – ideas that make a moral revolution thinkable and acceptable.

Ideas have consequences, as Richard Weaver famously reminded us.

Average Transgender Soldier Unable to Deploy for 238 Days

Based on issues of deploytability (ability to serve), it will be difficult to argue discrimination.

President Trump signed a presidential memo Friday night ordering the Defense Department to stop accepting transgender people for military service, reported the WaPo.

“In my judgment, the previous administration failed to identify a sufficient basis to conclude that terminating the Departments’ longstanding policy and practice would not hinder military effectiveness and lethality, disrupt unit cohesion, or tax military resources,” Mr. Trump wrote, “and there remain meaningful concerns that further study is needed to ensure that continued implementation of last year’s policy change would not have those negative effects.”  

White House military ban to be based on deployability.

The average transgender soldier will spend 238 days recovering from sex change surgeries and unavailable to deploy, according to an Obama administration study.

The Trump administration’s transgender ban places deployability as a determining factor into whether to admit transgender individuals into the military. The White House outlined guidelines to implement the ban within six months in a memo to Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, the Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday.

The ability to be deployed to war zones or bases around the world is an issue for transgender soldiers who undergo taxpayer-funded sex change operations, according to a study by the RAND Corporation.

The 2016 study was commissioned by the Obama administration, which favored opening the ranks to transgender individuals, and funded by the office of former secretary of defense Ash Carter.

The study found that, on average, transgender troops seeking basic sex-change operations would be nondeployable for 238 days, or 34 weeks out of a year. The figure amounts to 65 percent of one year. FreeBeacon

School Board Under Fire After ‘Transgender Reveal’ Leaves Kindergartners Confused About Who They Are

This is child abuse.

Angry parents gathered Monday night to protest a California teacher that read transgender books to her kindergarteners and encouraged a clothes-changing demonstration, saying it was inappropriate to vividly portray transgenderism to such young children.

In an alleged attempt to introduce a diversity of opinion, the Rocklin Academy teacher read the kindergarteners two books on transgenderism and let a student reveal her “true identity” by changing clothes in front of the class. To many parents of the kindergarten students, however, the fact that the school board failed to warn them in advance of the teacher’s intentions was unacceptable.

“These parents feel betrayed by the school district that they were not notified,” said Karen England of the Capitol Resource Institute, according to CBS Sacramento.

“The kindergartners came home very confused, about whether or not you can pick your gender, whether or not they really were a boy or a girl,” England said at the board meeting Monday night.  DailyCaller

Planned Parenthood: How To Teach Children Transgenderism Is Normal

Planned Parenthood, the taxpayer funded leftist-indoctrinating abortion mill, has issued guidelines on how to talk to preschoolers about gender rolls, masturbation, sexuality, transgerderism.

Planned Parenthood has decided that children as young as 4 should be instructed that gender and sex are different and that their genitals don’t indicate their gender.

The abortion provider issued new guidelines for parents on their website instructing them to tell inquiring children that, though boys and girls have different bodies, they shouldn’t pay attention to that, they can be whatever they want to be.

In a piece titled: “How do I talk with my preschooler about their body?” they show parent how to introduce the concept of transgender identity.

While the most simple answer is that girls have vulvas and boys have penises/testicles, that answer isn’t true for every boy and girl. Boy, girl, man and woman are words that describe gender identity, and some people with the gender identities ‘boy’ or ‘man’ have vulvas, and some with the gender identity ‘girl’ or ‘woman’ have penises/testicles. Your genitals don’t make you a boy or a girl.

So now, not only is the largest provider of abortion in the U.S. having their abortion industry subsidized by taxpayers, public funds are also furthering the indoctrination of children in a rejection of basic biology.  WesternFreePress

Canadian Parent Fights To Omit Gender On Child’s Birth Certificate

This is ridiculous and heartbreaking. That poor child.

Kori Doty identifies as neither male nor female, and wants their child to be able to do the same.

A parent in B.C.’s Slocan Valley is fighting to omit their child’s sex on their birth certificate as part of a broader effort to keep gender from being included on government documents.

Kori Doty gave birth to Searyl Atli at a friend’s home last November. Doty, a non-binary trans parent who doesn’t identify as either male or female, (and prefers to use the pronoun they), wants to keep Searyl’s gender off all official records.

“I’m raising Searyl in such a way that until they have the sense of self and command of vocabulary to tell me who they are, I’m recognizing them as a baby and trying to give them all the love and support to be the most whole person that they can be outside of the restrictions that come with the boy box and the girl box,” Doty said.

Doty says the province is refusing to issue Searyl a birth certificate with no gender on it, although last month the province did acquiesce and send out the child’s health card with a “U” for gender, presumably for “undetermined” or “unassigned,” so they could access medical services. CBA
