Growing Tr@nsphoria

Tr@nsgenderism is on the rise.  So much so, that sex change operations (AKA “gender reassignment surgery”) are now an “industry” having its own international market dynamics.  Some of the significant factors augmenting the market growth of this industry include…

  • Educational institutions and the MGM gaslight / teach / broadcast tr@nsgenderism as an acceptable norm.
  • Medical professionals are afraid to discourage tr@nsitioning for fear of being accused as “tr@nsphobic”.
  • An increasing number of adolescents who identify as something other than what they were born with.
  • Careless parents who want to make their children “happy” and “popular”, no matter what.
  • Laws that prevent parents from interceding in their children’s decisions about this matter.
  • An increasing number of different types of gender reassignment surgeries available.
  • An increasing awareness of tr@nsgender problems (e.g. confusion, suicide, etc.).
  • Greater availability and accessibility to gender reassignment surgical centers.
  • Widespread public familiarity with tr@nsgenderism and gender dysphoria.
  • Greater interest and inclination of patients towards changing one’s sex.
  • Peer pressure and/or social pressure.

An article from the New York Post summarizes the situation.

“In recent years, the number of children experiencing gender dysphoria in the West has skyrocketed.  Exact figures are difficult to come by, but, between 2009 and 2019, children being referred for tr@nsitioning treatment in the United Kingdom increased 1,000% among biological males and 4,400% among biological females.  Meanwhile, the number of young people identifying as tr@nsgender in the US has almost doubled since 2017, according to a new Centers for Disease Control & Prevention report.

Historically, tr@nsitioning from male to female was vastly more common, with this cohort typically experiencing persistent gender dysphoria from a very young age.  Recently, however, the status quo has reversed, and female-to-male tr@nsitions have become the overwhelming majority.”

Stories of Desexed Sufferings

Jack’s coverage of Tim Pool brought my attention to one of the most fascinating interviews I’ve seen on TimCast IRL.  In her early teens, Helena Kerschner was groomed by degenerates on Tumblr into believing she was “tr@ns”.  She began to “tr@nsition” when she was 18, because her parents, thankfully, wouldn’t let her when she was in their care.  Fortunately, she regretted her decision before doing any permanent damage to herself, and now advocates against tr@nsgenderism.

I cued the video to the point where she tells her story.

Chloe Cole’s story is much more tragic.

“I was failed by the system.  I literally lost organs.”

When Chloe was 12 years old, she decided she was tr@nsgender.  At 13, she came out to her parents.  That same year, she was put on puberty blockers and prescribed testosterone.  At 15, she underwent a double mastectomy.  Less than a year later, she realized she’d made a mistake — all by the time she was 16 years old.

Now 17, Chloe is one of a growing cohort called “detr@nsitioners” — those who seek to reverse a gender tr@nsition, often after realizing they actually do identify with their biological sex.  Tragically, many will struggle for the rest of their lives with the irreversible medical consequences of a decision they made as minors.

“I can’t stay quiet,” said Chloe.  “I need to do something about this and to share my own cautionary tale.”

The New York Post: ‘I literally lost organs:’ Why detr@nsitioned teens regret changing genders (2022-6-18)

She went from believing she was “tr@ns”, to taking hormones, to having her body mutilated, to regretting it…  All before she even turned 17!

We might be wondering, “Where are her parents?  Why didn’t they try to talk some sense into her and those doctors?”

The reason is because if parents disagree with an adolescent child’s decision to tr@nsition, the youth can be taken away from them and placed into the foster care of others who encourage the tr@nsition.  California, Oregon, and Washington even have laws to this effect, allowing adolescents over the age of 16 to be “emancipated” from their parents if the child elects to do so (under the beguiling guidance of a social worker). Some parents have been imprisoned for using genetically correct pronouns for their trans children.

Chloe’s body is permanently damaged.  There’s no way to reverse, or fix, the harm done to her.

Meanwhile, the MGM laments that the growing number of “detr@nsition narratives” makes “transition regret” seem more common than it is and contributes to misconceptions about transgender people in general. SMH

The Christian Response

The tr@ns movement is essentially churning out ever larger numbers of neutered androgynes. Flatly put, it’s gross misogyny. We’re going to see a lot more of this in the near future, and by “we”, I mean the Church.  At least some of these mutilated people are going to turn to the Church, and we need to be mentally prepared for that eventuality.

There is nothing new under the sun (Ecclesiastes 1:9).  The Church has faced this before.  [Emphasis mine.]

Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God?  Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.  Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11 (NASB 1995)

You might be thinking, “Effeminate… homosexuals?  Isn’t that the same thing?”

No.

In 1 Corintians 6:9, the word tr@nslated as “effeminate” is malakoi (μαλακοὶ) in Greek.

Malakoi literally means “soft boy”.  Some of these “soft boys” were catamites who’d been castrated before puberty for degenerate men’s kicks and pleasures.  In other words, they were involuntarily tr@nsgender.  That was particularly common in Corinth, which even the degenerate ancient Greeks considered a degenerate city.

Some of these mutilated young men found their way into the Church, and St. Paul reminded them that was no longer their identity.  They were now washed, sanctified, and justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.

We’re going to need to do the same.

Those who detr@nsition are called by God (1) to act as a living witness to the sufferings and evil horrors of their experiences, (2) to warn our society against the lies of tr@nsgenderism, and (3) to encourage and mentor others coming through the same experience.  (See 2 Corinthians 1:3-7.)  This is exactly what we see many of them doing.

Their voices need to be heard.

Conclusions

We’ve been snowed by all the hype about the Cov!d pandemic.  The real epidemic that’s going on under the radar is gender dysphoria.

Nearly six years ago, Vox Day wrote,

“The great line of demarcation in modern politics is now a division between men and women who believe that they are ultimately defined by their momentary opinions and those who believe they are ultimately defined by their genetic heritage.”

Vox Popoli (Ted Beale): What the Alt Right is (2016-8-24)

This may appear to be a dichotomy for those of us who believe that a person is ultimately defined by his/her position in, or outside of Christ.  But we need to be mindful of the context.  Vox’s statement concerns current politics, whereas our spiritual identity concerns our faith in what God has said:

God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

Genesis 1:27 (NASB1995)

The most important source of one’s identity is one’s position in Christ.  Genetic heritage ranks below that.  Of course, a person who is obedient to Christ will live in accordance with the genetic heritage Christ gave them…  or whatever is left of it after the ravages of sin takes its toll and one turns to Christ.  A genetic male will live as a man, and a genetic female will live as a woman.

  1. I had a girlfriend once who was diagnosed with PCOS.

    “Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder common among women of reproductive age. Women with PCOS may have infrequent or prolonged menstrual periods or excess male hormone (androgen) levels. The ovaries may develop numerous small collections of fluid (follicles) and fail to regularly release eggs.” ~ Mayoclinic

    Estimates are that around 10% of women have this condition in some way.

    My ex rarely menstruated, had cysts, and had a little bit of masculine hair growth. Personally, I think PCOS is a causal factor for gender dysphoria.

    Here’s the interesting part:

    I read some dozen studies on PCOS and got my ex to execute various dietary experiments to modulate her insulin, one of these involved hormones. Some interventions either produced short-lasting results (one menstruation) or failed.

    My ex had success with a ketogenic diet. Over a period of three months, she menstruated at a normal interval, lost interest in weight lifting and grew interested in running, and her fat composition shifted around (less in belly, more in breasts). After returning to a glycolytic diet (but still mostly clean), she maintained her health for a few more months. Then she dumped me and ceased contact.

    After further research, my working model for my ex’s success is that polyunsaturated fats (abundant in vegetable and seed oils) disrupt proper fat metabolism, leading to a variation of insulin resistance and then PCOS. In other words, toxic food, processed garbage made her ill.

    My ex’s diet was decently clean before her treatment exploration, so I can only imagine how badly the average woman’s diet is impacting their reproductive and endocrine systems. To me, the increase in gender dysphoria in recent decades fits nicely with the growing popularity of veganism and (garbage) impostor foods.

    I could go on forever on this subject, but this is the part that’s on topic.

      Will,
      I imagine that whatever changes your ex went through also made her appear more feminine. This opened up some new opportunities for her with other men, and that’s why she dumped you. I suppose she’s better off, but it’s sad for you to find out you were a stepping stone. More evidence that men are disposeable.

  2. Basic thoughts on the trans thing . . .

    Get your kids out of government schools and keep them off social media. Sounds radical? So what? The groomers are extremely aggressive. Teachers coming out of college the last few years have been fully indoctrinated in LGBTQX propaganda and will reflexively apply it.

    Read this additional story and note the connection between CRT and the “trans” phenomena. I knew both were satanic but didn’t realize how intertwined they were. CRT makes white kids hate themselves and makes them unpopular, but being LGBTQX — and especially “trans” — takes you to the front of the line in popularity and can even confer hero status. https://winteryknight.com/2022/07/15/mom-explains-how-she-pulled-her-daughter-out-of-transgender-spiral/

    Affirming “trans” desires of kids will eliminate any hopes of a normal sex life, the ability to produce children, and having a normal marriage. Who would want to marry them except another wildly confused person? They are confused and falling for peer pressure and have no idea what they are giving up.

    People with XY chromosomes shouldn’t be in women’s sports competitions or in women’s prisons, but if moronic and malicious Leftists want to pretend they are women, then the men should have to cut off their penises.  Problem solved.

      Helena was very explicit about that. She felt awkward and insecure about her body, which is normal for a girl in her early teens. She had no real friends, and she started interacting with degenerates on Tumblr who showered her with affirmation every time she took a small step in that direction, like cutting her hair. It’s insidious.

      Basically, these degenerates prey on the pain and insecurities of confused, and/or neglected, and/or abused kids.

      Then there are the mothers who force their kids into it.

      This whole subject makes my blood boil.

    The practice of castrating boys continued through the 17th and 18th century as a way to keep their voices at a higher pitch. A period of voice training followed castration which prepared them to be opera house singers. And those who weren’t successful in opera joined church choirs. Trends in opera then changed such that the use of castrated boys declined.

    Did the church condemn this practice?

      Joe2, the Catholic Church condemned and encouraged the practice of castrati.

      There were many choirs that depended on castrati, but fell out of favour and was increasingly condemned, and finally stopped.

      During the 80’s and 90’s I read many anti-Catholic screeds that condemned the church for encouraging and allowing castrati. These are rightful criticisms, but with the trans craze this line of critique seems to have stopped.

      If something is wrong, then it is always wrong, no matter what is fashionable amongst the PTB.

    Parental neglect HAS to play a major role in this, particularly across the Anglosphere. Parents, to put it most bluntly and crudely, simply do not give a sh!+ about their children at all. Children not raised by loving parents who make their spiritual, mental, and emotional health priority number one are sitting ducks for the “groomers,” among other predatory elements of the adult world. A special and particularly nasty quarter of Hell awaits people who neglected their young children.

    The Black Lives Matter cult is a big part of the current trans trend… https://www.facebook.com/hashtag/blacktranslivesmatter

    Before BLM deleted their “What We Believe Page” it included these quotes:

    “We make space for transgender brothers and sisters to participate and lead.

    We are self-reflexive and do the work required to dismantle cisgender privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence.”

    High achieving white females in public school skew hard to the left; this is in large part because they achieve by learning to parrot whatever their teachers say, and as to what public school teachers are saying, well…..

    White girls in public (and many private) schools are taught that they are inherently evil for being “CIS” (non-sodomite). They are taught that BLM is the source of all goodness and wisdom. They are taught to hate pregnancy and child-bearing. All of this leads to their embrace of the “trans” movement and self-mutilation.

    Off topic: The best defense against a bad guy with a gun…

    “While police are crediting an Indiana man with shooting and killing a suspect in the Greenwood Park Mall shooting Sunday, mall policy prohibited him from carrying at all.

    Greenwood Police Chief James Ison confirmed Sunday that the shooter was shot and killed by a man visiting the mall, located in a suburb just south of Indianapolis. The Good Samaritan, as police called him, was armed with a handgun.

    “The real hero of the day was the citizen that was lawfully carrying a firearm in the food court and was able to stop the shooter almost as soon as he began,” Ison said.
    ……
    Despite the man’s failure to follow the mall’s code of conduct, Greenwood Mayor Mark Myers said the man saved lives.”
