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

 

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

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

Pediatrician: How Transgender Ideology Has Infiltrated My Field And Produced Large-Scale Child Abuse

Michelle Cretella, M.D. is president of the American College of Pediatricians.

She criticized the transition-affirming view that holds children who “consistently and persistently insist” that they are not the gender they were born with are innately transgender.

Cretella said that such a view leads parents to put their children on puberty blockers, to give them cross-sex hormones, eventually leading to genital reassignment surgeries.

The pediatrician warned that despite the acceptance of this movement in the media, plenty of institutions and professionals in the field disagree with what she described as a “deeply flawed narrative.”

Cretella then listed what she said were eight different factual statements that counter the transition-affirming view, which can be read in full in the The Daily Signal article.

Among them, she notes studies that prove that no one is born “trapped in the body of the wrong sex,” and that puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones carry dangerous health risks.

“The crux of the matter is that while the transition-affirming movement purports to help children, it is inflicting a grave injustice on them and their nondysphoric peers,” Cretella stressed.

“Today’s institutions that promote transition affirmation are pushing children to impersonate the opposite sex, sending many of them down the path of puberty blockers, sterilization, the removal of healthy body parts, and untold psychological damage,” she added, insisting that all this creates “institutionalized child abuse.”

Earlier in June a sepearate report written by three well-respected medical experts and scholars also questioned decisions that place children under “radical” and “experimental” puberty-blocking hormone therapy.

“Psychologists do not understand what causes gender dysphoria in children and adolescents, or how to distinguish reliably between children who will only temporarily express feelings of being the opposite sex from children whose gender dysphoria will be more persistent,” states the report, titled Growing Pains: Problems With Puberty Suppression in Treating Gender Dysphoria, published by quarterly journal The New Atlantis.

“Until much more is known about gender dysphoria, and until controlled clinical trials of puberty suppression are carried out, this intervention should be considered experimental,” it adds.

The experts further warned that regardless of good intentions by physicians and parents, “to expose young people to such treatments is to endanger them.”  Christian Post

Minnesota Schools Adopt Transgender Toolkit For Kindergartners

What is happening in Minnesota?

A “transgender toolkit” for public schools in Minnesota advises teachers to call children “scholars” instead of boys and girls.

The guidelines were approved Wednesday by the “School Safety Technical Assistance Council” and will be distributed to Kindergarten through 12th grade public schools and charter schools throughout the state. The toolkit attempts to “ensure a safe and supportive transition” for children becoming a different gender at school.

The toolkit allows for boys who identify as girls to use the girls’ bathroom, and tells teachers to ask kids what their “preferred pronouns” are.

The Minnesota Department of Education encourages parents to have “acceptance and support of their child’s gender identity” if they want their child to perform well at school.  FreeBeacon

The Minnesota Toolkit states that the 2016 guidelines were rescinded, then the Toolkit quotes the 2016 guidelines numerous times as if it is still in effect.

The directive under the Obama administration was overturned by President Trump in February. The Dept. of Education withdrew its false interpretation and expansion of Title IX to include gender identity.

“Transgender students should be afforded equal opportunities to play sports. A student should not be required to provide medical or other documentation that is not required of all students in order to participate, according to 2016 Title IX guidance.  Title IX requires that schools provide transgender students with the right to participate in such activities, including athletics, in a manner consistent with their gender identity.”  pg 9, Minnesota Toolkit

It teaches gender is based on feelings not biology.  False, misleading, and unscientific .

through these policies and this ideology, MDE is violating its own bullying policies by creating an extremely hostile environment for students and adults who reject—on a scientific basis and/or a moral basis—that gender ideology is dangerous to children. The MDE is opposing the will of the overwhelming majority of Minnesota parents and taxpayers by forcing this toolkit and this unscientific, radical view of sexuality on our schools. CPL is receiving increasing reports from parents, teachers, and students that, when they do not adopt and affirm gender fluid thinking, they are being harassed, bullied, called bigots and haters, and intimidated into conformity.  CPLAction

Canadian Province’s New Law Lets Government Take Children Away If Parents Don’t Accept Their Gender Identity

Ontario has passed a law that would give the state power to remove children from families that oppose gender ideology.

If all of this sounds bizarre, that’s because it is. It’s also fascism. To remove a child from the home because the government disagrees with basic biology is beyond the pale of the reasonable.  DailyWire

Ontario’s Kathleen Wynne Liberals have passed what critics describe as “totalitarian” Bill 89 by a vote of 63 to 23 on the last day before Queen’s Park adjourns for the summer.

Pro-family advocates warn Bill 89 gives the state more power to seize children from families that oppose the LGBTQI and gender ideology agenda, and allows government agencies to effectively ban couples who disagree with that agenda from fostering or adopting children.

Bill 89, or the Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act, 2017, repeals and replaces the former Child and Family Services Act that governs child protection services, and adoption and foster care services.

It adds “gender identity” and “gender expression” as factors to be considered “in the best interests of the child.”

At the same time, it deletes the religious faith in which the parents are raising the child as a factor to be considered, and mandates child protection services consider only the child’s own “creed” or “religion” when assessing the best interests of the child. LifeSiteNews

Bill 89 allows parents to “direct the child or young person’s education and upbringing, in accordance with the child’s or young person’s creed, community identity and cultural identity.”  Children make the decisions.

The Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act of 2017, also know as Bill 89, was passed in Ontario by a vote of 63 to 23, The Christian Times reported.

The law, which replaces old laws governing child protection, foster care and adoption services, instructs all child services and judges, to take into consideration a child’s “race, ancestry, place of origin, color, ethnic origin, citizenship, family diversity, disability, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.”

Minister of Child and Family Services Michael Coteau, who introduced the bill, said “I would consider that a form of abuse, when a child identifies one way and a caregiver is saying no, you need to do this differently.”

“If it’s abuse, and if it’s within the definition, a child can be removed from that environment and placed into protection where the abuse stops.”

The old law used to allow parents to “direct the child’s education and religious upbringing.” The new bill, however, amends such rights of the parents.

It now emphasizes a child’s “identity and allows parents only to “direct the child or young person’s education and upbringing, in accordance with the child’s or young person’s creed, community identity and cultural identity.”  HeatSt

British Medical Association – Expectant Mothers Are To Be Referred To As ‘Pregnant People’

The British Medical Association is under the delusion that men can get pregnant.

“Transgender people are unfortunately suffering from a significant mental illness that is deeply harmful, and it’s not a solution to pretend that transgender people are the sex that they think they are in their head.  Biology is biology; men can’t magically become women, and women can’t magically become men.”  – Ben Shapiro

First they came for our loos, insisting that it was prejudicial simply to label them ‘Men’ and ‘Women’. Then they came for our children, preaching a gospel of transgender rights in schools and playgrounds.

Now they have come for our wombs, for the precious privilege of calling ourselves mothers. And that, I’m afraid, is a game-changer. This madness must end.

From now on, expectant mothers — in other words pregnant women — are to be referred to as ‘pregnant people’ in order not to offend the sensibilities of members of the transgender community.

What is even more extraordinary is that this is not some half-baked agenda dreamed up by members of a student lobby group, but official new guidance issued by no less an august institution than the British Medical Association.

In a new advisory booklet entitled A Guide To Effective Communication: Inclusive Language In The Workplace, the BMA’s 160,000-odd members are informed that ‘a large majority of people that have been pregnant or have given birth identify as women’.

The idiocy of this statement alone is enough to make my hackles rise. But it gets worse: ‘However, there are some intersex men and trans men who may get pregnant.’

I’m sorry, come again? Yes, that’s right: the BMA is labouring under the delusion that men can become pregnant. (Intersex, by the way, refers to a person born with a reproductive or sexual anatomy that doesn’t fit the typical definitions of female or male.)

This from a supposedly scientific body established almost 200 years ago with the express intention of, among other things, guarding against quackery, is frankly unforgivable.

Because men, it’s a well understood fact, cannot get pregnant. Only women can get pregnant. That is because (and it pains me to have to state the obvious) only women have ovaries and wombs and, therefore, only women have the biological equipment to bear children.

It therefore follows that if a person is pregnant she must by definition be a woman. Granted, she may not wish to be a woman, she may not like being a woman or dress as a woman or style her hair as a woman or even resemble one. She may even be transitioning to become a man — but if she still possesses a functioning womb she is, nonetheless, in biological terms a woman.  DailyMail

Boy Scouts Will Allow Transgender Children To Join

On Monday the Boy Scouts announced:  “Starting today, we will accept and register youth in the Cub and Boy Scout programs based on the gender identity indicated on the application.”

The BSA continue taking huge leaps in the wrong direction.

The Boy Scouts of America announced Monday that it will allow transgender children who identify as boys to enroll in its boys only programs.

The organization announced it had made the decision to begin basing enrollment in its boys-only programs on the gender a child or parent lists on the application to become a scout.

The Boy Scouts had previously held a policy that relied on the gender listed on a child’s birth certificate for those programs. DailyMail

Boy Scouts: We Defer To Birth Certificates

Transgender conditioning by this parent is child abuse.

The Boy Scouts of America once again landed under the harsh glare of the media spotlight for their policies on LGBT children.

Recently, a woman from New Jersey has been speaking to local media about how her transgender son was removed from his local Boy Scout troop because of his gender identity.

Kristie Maldonado, of Secaucus, N.J., told the Record newspaper that none of the children in Cub Scout Pack 87 had a problem with her 8-year-old son’s participation — but their parents did.

“Not one of the kids said, ‘You don’t belong here,’” she said.

Her son, Joe, said, “I had a sad face, but I wasn’t crying. I’m way more angry than sad. My identity is a boy. If I was them, I would let every person in the world go in. It’s right to do.”  Yahoo

Canadian Teachers Union Guide To Promote ‘Incusiveness’ Includes ‘Drag Shows’ and Calling Students ‘Comrade’

gender-unicorn
A “gender unicorn” is used in the guide as a way of understanding the range of options for gender identities.

A teachers union in Alberta, Canada has written a guide that instructs teachers to promote inclusiveness and tolerance for the LGBT LGBT community.

One recommendation is that teachers refer to students as “comrades” instead of  “boys and girls.”

Here are a few other ideas to promote a progressive agenda that lacks common sense and reason, and the purpose is to weaken the Judeo-Christian society.

In one such proposal, it is suggested that students be referred to “comrades” instead of boys and girls. A second idea encourages drag shows so that kids can study the “performance of gender.”

The Alberta Teacher’s Association (ATA), the top union for teachers in Alberta, Canada released the 152-page document called, “Prism Toolkit for Safe and Caring Discussions.” The guide is meant to assist teachers in creating an LBGTQ-inclusive environment in the classroom.

The guide is intended to create “welcoming, caring, respectful and safe learning environments for children and youth,” and asks teachers use gender-neutral language like “spouse” rather than husband and wife.

One activity recommended for students is titled, “Drag 101.” The activity encourages students to “examine the performance of gender, specifically the exaggerated  feminine aspects of dressing and acting in drag,” and compels students to invite local drag queens to come into the classroom and to organize a drag performance at the school.

Another activity suggested is “Gender Swap,” where students select a piece of writing that is typically strongly associated with a particular gender, but one that is not the gender they identify with.

“Students are asked to perform their selected piece and complete an analysis,” the guide states; giving examples of well known literary classics and how they may change if the roles were reversed.

Additional activities in the manual include “Queer Music,” where teachers select music composed by artists who are “sexual or gender minorities.” Another activity called, “Gender Bending Fashion,” where students are “challenged to create fashion that transcends gender and fully incorporates the masculine and feminine in all their pieces,” was also present in the book.

Parent Advocacy

“It is deeply offensive of the authors [of the guide] to unequivocally redefine what qualifies as the ‘religious and moral beliefs’ of others,” Theresa Ng, a parent activist who writes a blog called, “Informed Albertans” said. “Whether the ATA chooses to acknowledge it or not, this IS a religious issue for many teachers, parents and students in this province,” she continued.

The ATA contends that the internal guide would assist teachers in creating a safe and inclusive environment for students, pushing back against critics who say the new guidelines do not honor or value alternative perspectives on the issues.

A “gender unicorn” is used as a way of “understanding gender” in the guide. The five-question survey is meant to show that there are a range of options for gender and sexual identities.

Judge Orders Boy, Seven, To Live With Father After His Mother Raised Him As Her Daughter

gender-signsThis mother even registered her son with his GP as a girl.  The court litigation began 3 years ago after the father raised concerns about not having contact with his son.

A seven-year-old boy who was ‘living life entirely as a girl’ has been removed from his mother’s care and ordered to live with his father following a High Court ruling.

Mr Justice Hayden said the woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, had caused her son ‘significant emotional harm’ by trying to raise him entirely as a girl.

The judge said the woman had been ‘absolutely convinced’ that the youngster ‘perceived himself as a girl’ and was determined that he should be a female.

She dressed him in girl’s clothes at all times and registered him at the GP as a girl.

Detail of the case emerged today in a judge’s ruling following a hearing in the Family Division of the High Court in London.

Judge Rules –  Mother has caused significant emotional harm to her son.

The judge added: ‘I was also left in no doubt that (the mother) was absolutely convinced that (the boy) perceived himself as a girl.’

Mr Justice Hayden said his ‘overwhelming impression’ was that the woman ‘believes herself to be to fighting for (her son’s) right to express himself as a girl’.

His mother told me that was ‘living in stealth’ by which was meant that he was living life entirely as a girl. He dressed, at all times, like a girl and, it transpired, had been registered at a new general practitioner’s as a girl

He said the woman had told him how the boy ‘expressed disdain for his penis’.

The judge added: ‘I consider that (the mother) has caused significant emotional harm to (her son) in her active determination that he should be a girl.’

Doing better with his father

Mr Justice Hayden said the boy’s father was shocked when the youngster moved in with him and his partner.

But he said the boy had settled down well in his father’s care.

‘I have been told that (the father) and his partner were shocked when they first saw (the boy) by the extent to which he appeared to be a girl, both in appearance and in mannerism,’ said the judge.

‘However, what is striking is how well (the boy) has settled down.’

The judge added: ‘I have noted from reports that (the boy) has become interested in Power Rangers, SpongeBob, Superheroes and is constantly finding new interests.

‘It is striking that most of (the boy’s) interests are male-oriented. I am entirely satisfied, both on the basis of the reports and (the father’s) evidence at this hearing, that he has brought no pressure on (the boy) to pursue masculine interests.

‘(The boy’s) interests and energy are entirely self-motivated.’

He said the boy’s father had shown himself to be a ‘natural and instinctive father’.

In his report, the judge also raised concerns about the local authority’s handling of the case. DailyMail
