6.3 Why Don't Adults Speak Out Against Transitioning More?

There are parents who believe that if their child wants to transition it's because they are the opposite sex trapped in the wrong body and so encourage their children to do so.  Their are parents who go to the so called experts for help (Doctors, therapists) when their child decides to detransition and are told "“If you don’t affirm your daughter’s gender identity, or get her the help she needs, and she kills herself, you’re going to feel awfully guilty.”   What the doctor should have said is that if you affirm your daughter's identity and help her transition and she kills herself you will feel awfully guilty.  The doctor should have said that because more people commit suicide after transitioning than before.

People who refuse to call a person "he" when that person wants to be called "she" or some other pronoun can lose their job.  If a man decides he's a woman and says "call me her and she when talking about me", and you don't do it you could lose your job.  That's what happened to Peter Vlaming a French teacher.  Not only could you lose your job you can be locked up in jail.  That's what happened to an Irish teacher named Enoch Burke.  He told the court where he was being tried that "I am here today because I refused to call a boy a girl."   The judge barred Enoch from going to the school and teaching anymore.  Enoch went to the school any way and was arrested.  He told the judge that “I am a teacher and I don’t want to go to prison.  I want to be in my classroom today, that’s where I was this morning when I was arrested.” He added: “Transgenderism is against my Christian belief. It is contrary to the scriptures, contrary to the ethos of the Church of Ireland and of my school.”  The judge then sent him to prison. 

New York landlords who don't used a person's desired pronoun can face fines as high as $250,000.  Doctors can lose their license if they warn children about the problems of transitioning.  If you are a psychologist you have to be affirming of what the child says there sex is.  The idea that a psychologist has to do affirm the patient came before the latest transgender craze.  There used to be a craze in which children became convinced they had been abused by people when they hadn't been.  Some therapists believed they had to affirm the childs beliefs of abuse no matter how crazy their story sounded.  There are girls who believe they are fat when they are really thin.  They keep dieting and become very sick.  These girls are called anorexics.  Should therapists affirm those girls beliefs?  Should they tell the girls, yes you are fat, diet some more? Abigail Shrier wrote a book about the current craze of affirming transgender beliefs.  She talks about the vitriol toward those who speak out against affirming as well as what has happened to some of them in the video below.


When people point out that taking hormones may be a bad idea they are often called bigots and homophobes.  Ryan Anderson is one of these people had he was accused of being a bigot.

In the video below some people speak about how they were cancelled because of their views about transitioning. 

Vanderbilt Medical Center is in Tennessee.  Matt Walsh investigated their transgender treatment program.  He tweeted:

Vanderbilt opened its trans clinic in 2018. During a lecture the same year, Dr. Shayne Taylor explained how she convinced Nashville to get into the gender transition game. She emphasized that it's a "big money maker," especially because the surgeries require a lot of "follow ups"

It's also a big money maker because the government has decided that taxpayers have to pay for it.

According to Forbes, the transgender surgery industry is a $200B+ market. One would expect that medical organizations that care more about making money than the welfare of children would be for transgender surgery and might want to silence those who object to it.  That's exactly what is happening.  On October 3,  2022, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Medical Association, and the Children’s Hospital Association called on U.S. Attorney General, Merrick Garland, to investigate those who expose the transgender surgery industry for its potential harm to children.

Vanderbilt Medical Center was concerned that not all of its staff would be on board with mutilating children. Dr. Ellen Clayton, a professor of law at Vanderbilt, warned that "conscientious objections" are "problematic." She threatened that anyone who decides not to be involved in transition surgeries due to "religious beliefs" will face "consequences"

In case the objectors hadn't gotten the memo, Vanderbilt unveiled a program called "Trans Buddies." The "buddies" are trans activists from the community who attend appointments with trans patients, monitoring the doctors to guard against "unsafe" behavior such as misgendering.

Vanderbilt makes their Trans Buddies available to children, too. They make lots of "services" available to children, including chemical castration.

You can watch videos of the above doctors saying these things here.

So people are making money by preventing kids from hearing that transgender surgery is a bad idea.

There used to be a TV show called the Twilight Zone.  Weird things use to happen in the twilight zone.  The next video is a cartoon called the Woke Zone where weird things also happen.  It's about the cancel culture and those who critcize transgenders.  Woke means aware of injustice.  Woke people believe they know the truth and those who disagree are bigots and racists and should be silenced.  In order to understand the cartoon you need to understand what the cancel culture is.  The Cancel Culture is the beliefs of a group of people that leads them to force other people with beliefs they don't like, out of jobs or social groups.  The cartoon mentions transphobic thoughts.  Transphobic means having an irrational hostile fear of transgender people.  The Cancel Culture will punish people have thoughts they don't like and who use words they don't like.  Words like mother can become a target of the cancel culture because a mother is female and that is seen as unfair to male couples.  Products can become targets of the cancel culture as well.  Aunt Jemima syrup and pancake mix became a target of the Cancel Culture because the picture of Aunt Jemima was a picture of a black woman and that was considered racist.
