Transgender Totalitarianism

How far will society let this go? From the UK: [1]

An astonishing 17 pupils at a single British school are in the process of changing gender, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

Most of the youngsters undergoing the transformation are autistic, according to a teacher there, who said vulnerable children with mental health problems were being ‘tricked’ into believing they are the wrong sex.

The whistleblower says few of the transgender children are suffering from gender dysphoria – the medical term for someone who feels they were born in the wrong body – but are just easily influenced, latching on to the mistaken belief they are the wrong sex as a way of coping with the problems caused by autism.

More:

It means that 150 autistic teenagers were given puberty blocker drugs which stop the body maturing.

The teacher says she felt compelled to speak out to protect pupils, many of whom she believes could already be taking the powerful drugs and may go on to have life-changing surgery.

She believes schools and some politicians have swallowed ‘hook, line and sinker’ a politically-correct ‘fallacy’ peddled by a powerful transgender lobby.

And:

She has asked The Mail on Sunday to conceal her identity for fear of dismissal after almost 20 years as a teacher, But in a shocking interview, the woman, who we shall call Carol, tells how:

She was advised to keep parents and other teachers in the dark if a pupil claimed to be transgender;

Older pupils at her school who changed gender ‘groomed’ younger, mainly autistic students to do the same;

One autistic teenager is soon to have a double mastectomy;

Pupils who say they were born the wrong sex mimic transgender YouTube stars Carol believes are partly to blame for convincing vulnerable children they have gender dysphoria.

Read the whole thing.  [1] The details about how the trans cult manifested itself among the students at that school sound very much like what my friend Mrs. DK told me a couple of years ago was happening at her daughter’s school. Two days ago, Mrs. DK posted this in a comments thread here:

Our autistic and academically gifted daughter is home from college for her 20th birthday. After almost a year on testosterone, her voice sounds like a young man’s, and she has fine hair above her lip and on her chin. The university is talking to her about a double mastectomy! My Rapid Onset Gender Dysphoria support group continues to pick up more concerned parents from across the Balt/Wash area and northern VA. Almost all liberal and very secular parents, we all look like we’ve been hit by a train — and we can get no answers from the schools, universities, therapists, and doctors who are doing this.

In the meantime, look at Detrans Voices on twitter as more and more women suffer from the side effects of hormones and complications from surgery. Look at transbrainfx.com [2] for information on the non-FDA-approved hormones being given out to our kids like candy. Yet fighting this is like fighting Leviathan. The beginnings of our Godforsaken transhuman future.

Fighting this is like fighting Leviathan. It is totalitarian.

For example, the trans-critical blog GenderTrender published the pre-transition name of Jonathan “Jessica” Yaniv, a Canadian man who now claims to be female, and has filed human rights claims against women’s salons who will not wax his testicles (he has not had bottom surgery) because the estheticians do not want to touch male genitalia. GenderTrender published information related to the man’s social media activities related to underage girls, and used the name Jonathan Yaniv. As a result, WordPress kicked GenderTrender off [3], claiming that “deadnaming” (using a trans person’s pre-transition name) is a violation of terms of service. Gallus Mag of GenderTrender said in a statement:

Will this new policy be widely enforced? Of course not. I believe this change to the WordPress TOS was hastily conceived as a guise to censor lesbian and feminist authors who are critical of “gender identity” ideology, specifically those who investigate or critique the actors behind various political or judicial campaigns to limit the rights of women. I believe this change is a direct result of GenderTrender’s exposure of Jonathan Yaniv, the figure behind 16 Canadian human rights complaints against women who declined to wax his balls, as an alleged sexual predator. I believe this unannounced change to the TOS, applied retroactively without prior warning or notification, is a ruse to justify the specific targeted censorship of certain popular long running lesbian and feminist blogs who critique the ingrained (and sometimes criminal!) misogyny of the transgender movement. I believe this is an organized, intentional initiative by WordPress.com to eliminate lesbian and feminist criticism and exposure of the epidemic harassment, predation, and sex-specific terrorism of male bodied people upon female bodied people, regardless of their personal “identity”.

Below, what GenderTrender was blogging about: Yaniv’s social media activity asking people for advice on how to approach 10 to 12 year old girls in public restrooms and talk about tampon use:

WordPress’s policy protects creeps like Jonathan Yaniv. But it would also shut down any blog that discusses Bruce Jenner’s Olympic career. If you have a WordPress blog, they will censor you if you attempt to publish factual information that offends a transgendered person by in any way — even passively — questioning their proclaimed identity. That entire feminist blog, GenderTrender, has been erased, including its archive. It’s gone.

UPDATE: A reader comments:

Gender Trender didn’t publish a former name. Yaniv still currently uses “Jonathan” (and “he”) on LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook.

linkedin -> /jonathanyaniv
twitter -> /trustednerd
facebook -> /trustednerd

And, for you people who object to my using the word “totalitarianism,” I refer you to this short passage from a Michael Hanby essay about Augusto del Noce [4]:

Like Wilhelm Reich, who popularized the term, Del Noce sees the sexual revolution as the culmination of “total revolution.” It is one face of a “new, more dangerous, and more radical form of totalitarianism” than any seen heretofore, “even though these new positions claim to represent the highest degree of democracy and anti-fascism.” Unlike previous authoritarianisms, it is not a positive political program bent on world domination, but a negative “totalitarianism of disintegration” aimed at the perpetual destruction of antecedent order.

The order marked for destruction can be summed up in one word: Europe—the intellectual and spiritual synthesis of Rome, Athens, and Jerusalem. The new totalitarianism proceeds by negating every form of transcendence, especially the religious truth and universal reason which Del Noce calls “Platonism.” It reconceives reality as “a system of forces, not of values.” Being and nature are dissolved into the flux of history. And truth is reduced to social and psychological “situations” to be administered by social scientists.

UPDATE: A reader comments:

At my daughter’s school, over 5% of the students id’d as trans. All showed signs of autism. One had a mastectomy at age 16. Teachers & admins reacted like this was normal. Parents blindly supported their kids’ choices.

My daughter started believing she was a trans man four years ago after she attended a school presentation. She is very smart, socially awkward, and has autism. When I sought help for her, every therapist I talked to said she knew her identity and I must affirm or she was at higher risk of suicide. I was pushed by a clinician to put her on puberty blockers & was told they were perfectly safe.

I have written to countless journalists about my story, begging them to report what is really going on. Only conservative journalists will report. Others continue to push propaganda.

I have had private conversations with MDs, teachers, and therapists about this. While they might sympathize with my situation, none will speak out.

My daughter is almost 18 now and still convinced she must medically transition to be her authentic self. Our insurance covers full medical transition, as do countless four-year colleges.

At my older daughter’s college, she has seen many kids suddenly identify as trans & start hormones right away. She knows several girls who have had mastectomies. If have seen their social media accounts where they brag about their hormones and surgeries.

Very soon, my husband and I will be faced with the choice of cutting her off financially to make medical transition more difficult.

This is a nightmare.

That’s because social scientists need to feel relevant too. 🙂

Sometimes I think you seek out the craziest stuff to scare people. Most transpeople that I know, had a sense of being the wrong gender a long time and tried very hard to fit into society. Often after reaching adulthood (often advanced adulthood) they decide to transition. I have a friend that said that if he had more information as a young person, would have transitioned. However, not at age 60, doesn’t want to undergo hormone treatment or surgery. Also transitioning would end his marriage. Many people don’t transition because in the US most of the surgery and treatments are not covered by insurance and it is too expensive for most people.

As far as children, I don’t think that children should transition or begin transition (with hormones or surgery). We can’t know if they are trans or if they are “going through a phase”. Transitioning isn’t like returning a guitar that your child lost interest in. It is a permanent biological change. That is why based on most of what I know, doctors require you attend at least a year of therapy and spend at least a year living as the other gender before beginning hormone therapy.

As far as getting your balls waxed. If you want that, just google that service. I found many businesses that willingly provided that service. No need to make someone perform that service if they don’t want to.

If the person is trans, the person doesn’t carry period supplies and has no reason to discuss or offer period supplies or advice to anyone. I am a woman. I don’t talk to minors without the presence and consent of the parents about anything.

Transgender is a rare phenomena, so a cluster of 17 at a single school should raise questions. It would take an initial population of at least 4250 people, and even most big city schools have less than 1000 students per school.

#4 Comment By Austrian On November 19, 2018 @ 7:40 am

As a woman, I have not once been asked by a young girl for tampons in a washroom, in such a case a girl would certainly not approach a stranger but ask her friends. She would certainly never ask a complete stranger to explain how to use them.
To me, this whole exchange about young girls and “help” they might need with sanitary pads etc. sounds BEYOND CREEPY, a horrible creepy fantasy by a truly creepy person.
As the mother of a daughter, I do. Not. Want. Her to have to share a bathroom with men. We have had a number of cases in which men used the “trans excuse” to their own advantage, either to abuse women or to win in female sports competitions. If men do such a thing, why would we trust them enough to open a protected feminine space (and I consider washrooms to be a safe environment, mostly)to them?

#5 Comment By Joan from Michigan On November 19, 2018 @ 8:34 am

One of my friends has been a trans activist since the 90s, when trans people had to jump through a tremendous amount of hoops in order to be allowed to transition. He observed then that there was a very high rate of mental health issues, including autism, among trans people; his estimate was one in four. Therefore I am not surprised that, in a population diagnosed with autism, transgenderism is going to be more common than among the general population.

As for the Michael Hanby quotation, he sounds, and he makes Del Noce sound, like a man who loves God less than he loves order, who just wants to live in a world where each generation does what the previous generation did, where there aren’t any of those awful surprises.

I am reminded of Brother Sun, Sister Moon, the biopic of the youth of St. Frances, when there was a sudden fad for religious vocations in the little town of Assisi. There’s a scene in which the saint’s father weeps because his son has chosen the life of a hermit over the worldly success for which the father gone to a lot of trouble and expense to train him.

#9 Comment By kgasmart On November 19, 2018 @ 9:29 am

A friend of mine who is an MD and who worked as a cancer researcher says that she thinks the massive manipulation of hormones required in transitioning – suppressing one hormone, infusing the other – may lead to cancers appearing a few years down the line.

Don’t worry, I’m sure we, the public, will be on the hook for this cost.

#10 Comment By craig On November 19, 2018 @ 9:31 am

Marie in Vermont says: “I’m confused. Why in the world does this guy (and he is a guy) need to talk to young girls about tampons anyway?”

A sure mark of depraved evil is that it always — always — seeks the sexualization of children. In other words, this guy “needs” to talk to young girls about tampons for the same reason certain others “need” to show off the puppy they’re keeping in the van around the corner.

The professional war against the autistic (a Greek swearword we wear with pride) has always been intense but is greatly worsening.

The many autistic women and girls are great. Hands off them.

The autistic men and boys likewise.

” WordPress kicked GenderTrender off, claiming that “deadnaming” (using a trans person’s pre-transition name) is a violation of terms of service.”

Internet companies are the biggest book burners on the planet right now. Companies like WordPress and Google will just up and cancel websites that powerful groups don’t like, for example just about any website the SPLC’s donor have paid them to denounce.

And it’s not a matter of free enterprise: they don’t just ban the free trial accounts. They ban the paying accounts too, which means that they don’t honor contracts. They are able to break contracts at will because they have vastly greater resources than the little people and vastly complicated adhesion contracts that would require a huge amount of litigation just to be able to sue them in a public forum.

The excuse is always a “terms of service” violation. They never tell what terms of service are being violated they just erase the website.

Any website that dissents from the status quo can be taken down at any time. This leads to direct censorship, when a site is taken down, and indirect where people censor their own opinions to avoid getting their websites banned.

This is a real problem as the internet – a public resource – is being taken over by deep pockets trying to control the narrative. (by the way they seem to be willing the crack down on political dissenters pretty hard, while claiming it is impossible to crack down on all the perverted garbage they are hosting for children)

#13 Comment By Penelope Clearwater On November 19, 2018 @ 10:28 am

One of my friends is an MD, a top-notch plastic surgeon on the east coast who now refuses to take transgender patients. Why? They all need/use/want plastic surgery for the rest of their lives, from fillers to jaw remodeling, hair transfer, body contouring, etc etc ad infinitum. But after treating a fair number of them the truth is: 100% of them are NEVER happy. This doc doesn’t take insurance so, so far, has flown under the radar. But I wonder how long that will last.

#14 Comment By Jeff R On November 19, 2018 @ 10:31 am

Why in the world does this guy (and he is a guy) need to talk to young girls about tampons anyway? What the heck does he know about menstruation? How did he become an expert on using tampons? Is this somehow related to the men who think they’re women having “periods”?

I think the dude is aroused by this scenario. Fun times.

“NFR: Minimize this if you like, but the fact is, Jonathan Yaniv has filed a formal human rights complaint with the Canadian authorities. The law could be used to punish the salons that won’t serve his pervert self. ”

Well, let’s see what happens; perhaps sanity will prevail. Frivolous complaints are filed all the time. Honestly a law mandating that you MUST wax a ‘woman’s’ balls sounds like a South Park plotline. If the Canadian Authoritahs were actually to do this I would expect a massive societal pushback.

I still think (and hope) that a sensible society can find a way to give equal rights to trans people without indulging the worst fringe lunatics of the movement, but I suppose we’ll see very soon.

#16 Comment By Sally On November 19, 2018 @ 10:50 am

> “totalitarianism of disintegration” aimed at the perpetual destruction of antecedent order

This is an interesting way to put it. I would have called it aggressive or militant nihilism.

I’m no philosopher, but I wonder about the relationship between totalitarianism (political) and nihilism (philosophical/spiritual). They seem closely related. The nihilist believes in nothing outside himself — no independent standard, nothing to which one can appeal — so all his professed “ideals” are really about acquiring power, keeping power, and increasing his power over others.

Nihilists will tell you in censorious, helpful tones that certain thoughts and behaviors are “not okay” and that you need to “educate yourself” into a modern understanding of blah blah .. But it will change tomorrow, and today’s line will be erased without a trace, and other seemingly harmless attitudes will suddenly be “not okay.”

I haven’t read Kurt Schlicter’s book “Militant Normals,” but I keep the title in mind just as a framing device, for clarity.

Personally I don’t care what consenting adults do, including surgeries and cross-dressing. If Bruce Jenner is happier as Kaitlyn, I wish him/her the best. But “live and let live” — a normal American attitude — is not enough. Militant nihilists need to shame and defile normal attitudes — that “him/her” is not okay! — and drive them underground so that the silent majority kowtows to its whims.

I don’t understand the insatiable desire to take a wrecking ball to social norms. Nihilists seem to get some perverse thrill out of it: the joy of destruction — “burn it all down!”– for which there probably is some German phrase.

Their parents didn’t raise them right, or something.

#17 Comment By DRK On November 19, 2018 @ 11:09 am

The Daily Mail article is very poorly written. I was not sure what the following two consecutive sentences even meant:

Earlier this year, The Mail on Sunday revealed that a third of youngsters referred to the NHS’s only gender identity clinic for children showed ‘moderate to severe autistic traits’. It means that 150 autistic teenagers were given puberty blocker drugs which stop the body maturing.

So I found this other Daily Mail article, which is where they pulled that figure from. I am linking it just in case someone besides me found the jump from 17 kids to 150 confusing.

[9]

By the way, the assumption the Mail is making is that if a person is autistic, then they can’t be transgender. I see no reason given for this, however. Given that that nearly three-quarters of children with autism spectrum disorder also have another medical or psychiatric condition, transgenderism being another comorbidity of autism seems not implausible. That figure of 150 kids covers the period of 2011 to 2017. Some of those kids are probably adults now. Follow-up studies would be valuable.

As for Yaniv, that person is a straight up pervert, and a pedophile to boot, and hopefully will end up in jail. Yuck.

“Where are the men to stand up against this and stop this sick madness even if that means using any and all necessary force to do so?! Men need to stand up and be men and embrace the God given inclination to violence they are born with in the name of what is right and just!”

Agreed, but even more than that, women need to stick up for ourselves. This is actually in large part a real “women’s issue;” the right to not have to wax some dude’s balls, the right to not have your ten-year-old daughter accosted by creeps with tampons in the bathroom, the right to privacy, all of womens’ athletics – these are instances where women need to be vocal and put on their damn pink hats or whatever and not be silenced on these issues.

It’s the same mentality that’s behind LGBT activists going after bakers, florists, photographers, etc. that won’t provide services for their gay wedding or bake them a cake to celebrate the anniversary of their gender transition, when there are plenty of other nearby vendors that would be ready, willing and able to accommodate them. It’s not about actually getting the services that they are asking for. It’s about punishing those that do not affirm their lifestyle.

Cavin:

“And that’s where the overreaction by social conservatives annoys me. I’m all for a society that gives people the freedom to make unwise choices, as long as no one imposes harm onto me without my consent.”

What if they impose harm on you by systematic brainwashing, especially at an early age when you are most vulnerable, especially if you are autistic or otherwise psychologically vulnerable?

Do you really think people are abstract free agents, immune to the power of social pressure and countless other forms of non-physical coercion?

As a parent, think you are completely delusional.

Perhaps it’s time to reacquaint ourselves with cults and teach our loved ones how to recognize their markers. Stella Morabito has written an excellent piece on this subject that is perfect for our time:

How To Recognize The Cult Mindset In Yourself And Others
[11]

“Cults Are Not Defined by Beliefs, But by Their Methods”

“To figure out whether something is a cult, you must just look at the tactics and methods of those groups, especially their tolerance for different points of view.”

And in a similar vein, the foolish fad to follow your bliss is addressed by Mike Rowe with an excellent common sense rebuttal: We have to stop telling kids to blindly follow their passion and show them the opportunities that exist.’ May we all learn to be so eloquent in rebutting nonsense fads and cults.

What some commenters are clearly not getting is that for male transgenders, by and large, this is a fetish. Autogynephilia–getting off on thinking of oneself as a woman–is a paraphilia. And paraphilias rarely travel alone. In the case of Yaniv, as with many other male transgenders, there is a paraphilia focusing on coercing and humiliating women–that’s where the ball-waxing comes in and why he is so fixated on forcing women to do it against their will instead of just finding one who will do it willingly. Pedophilia is also commonly co-occurring, thus his fixation on young girls and how to “legitimately” approach them to get inside their intimate boundaries and even their bodies. You can see he has a target age range like most pedos. He’s not “worried” about being approached by a 17 or 14 year old asking for a tampon, he’s laser-focused on that 10-12 age group.

(Speaking of that, some men asked, and no, I have NEVER been approached by a girl or even a young woman asking for help with menstrual products in a restroom. One time a homeless woman outside a supermarket asked me for $5 to buy a bag of pads and I offered her a bag I was carrying instead, which she gratefully accepted, but that is the one and only time in all my decades of public restroom experience that anyone has ever asked me any such thing. It just doesn’t happen. It’s this guy’s sick fantasy.)

#26 Comment By bob On November 19, 2018 @ 1:20 pm

The schools. In the late 60’s education coursework in the University of Washington was useless. I know of one woman who simply showed up on the days exams were given, she got B’s in the coursework and taught for > 30 years. In the intervening years the BA in education was deemed insufficient (by the colleges of education, who else?) so now every teacher requires an MA, more tuition and debt. You might notice they are the front line troops in bending brains to such nonsense as “trans” identity. They will advocate for a disturbed student to pursue disturbance as far as possible and further. They will do this in spite of the parents. The parents have certainly assisted by frequently raising them in fragmented half or quarter families. No one really wants a child to have a “normal” upbringing and education. And nature abhors a vacuum. The seeds of this evil were planted some decades ago. Carefully nurtured, it shouldn’t surprise us now. Around 10 years ago it was made law that a child could exclude their parent (who has TWO, anyway?) from knowing their medical information without *their permission*. Oh. The older person must pay for it, but none of your business if the daughter (this is a child whose gender was “assigned” female at birth, y’all) is taking birth control — or Testosterone because she decided she isn’t a girl after all. Thank you, public education, how can we ever repay you? There won’t be any teachers we can trust with our children or grandchildren for a long time to come. With advocates like them who needs abusers?

Yes, punishing dissenters/heretics is definitely a motivating factor for these things. They also just expect to live in a world where “ssm” is treated just as if it were marriage and where “transwomen” are treated just like women. This world can only come into existence if the people who do not regard “ssm” as the equivalent of marriage and “transwomen” as being women are moved to the margins and not allowed to participate in all aspects of civil society (economic, social, etc).

As such, we should make no mistake with respect to Mr. Yaniv. He must win. Every woman who declined to wax his balls must be punished. They must not even be allowed to defend themselves properly, because they must not be allowed to speak of Mr. Yaniv as being anything other than a woman and his anatomy as being anything other than completely female and normal for a female to have that. Just like the bakers should have known decades ago that two men could really marry each other when they went into business, the wax artists should have known that some women have balls. They should have never gone into business without being willingness and knowledge of providing services for all female anatomy.

Dont get me wrong, Yaniv should lose and lose badly. He is a miserable creep of a man, but he wont lose because this is a make or break issue. The sexual revolution demands he win, or else the whole thing can begin to legally unravel.

This is not about trans people in the slightest, this is about taking over structures of authority in society to pull of a complete revolution. Read your Max Weber. The family is the last unit of traditional authority that has yet to be eliminated by the emerging bureaucratic organization of society. What you are witnessing is the final push of bureaucratic rationality to sweep away the last vestiges of irrational traditional authority from society.

I’ve lurked on the Reddit page “asktransgender” and have learned that these dudes (aka trans women) have very strange, pre-adolescent ideas of what women do in our private spaces. They have fantasies that we all talk to strangers about bras, periods, and makeup, all while giggling and having pillow fights. They refer to all women, even adult ones, as “girls.” These guys are SO weird.

I am in my late 40s and have had only a few instances of other women asking if I had a tampon or pad I could spare. All of those were grown-ups, not girls. Most young girls would be too mortified to talk about their period with a stranger, regardless of what this lunatic thinks.

Blimbax:

Jim Sinclair is intersex and was considered female as a child. Look up Wikipedia.

Agree with Jen above. Despite what you may have read, there is no chance that a beautiful but repressed librarian, a total fox once she takes off her glasses, will suddenly find her naughty side when you, the photocopy-repairman, finally arrive in her life. There’s even less chance that a girl would ask a stranger, especially one obviously a male, about anything period-related. We don’t “bond over period stuff,” as Mr. Yaniv hopes to do with young girls, nor are there tickle fights that accidentally end up with two hot girls kissing. The fantasy lives of men are extraordinary (and extraordinarily weird).

I’m visiting England at the moment (as I always do for Thanksgiving). Spent last night in watching the BBC. The stuff on trans issues, especially trans kids, is all over the place (including the story you mention). Though I have seen a little pushback on this particular episode, the coverage is generally insanely sympathetic of young kids (many with other problems) undergoing medical procedures to transition. It is truly crazy. I am amazed that so many who (rightly) oppose “reparative therapy” for gay kids are so supportive of impossible or difficult to reverse medical/surgical procedures for supposedly trans kids. I am happy with outlawing reparative therapy for kids but also support outlawing medical transition procedures for kids. When you are adult, do whatever you want…but not before.

You can’t go much further down the freak hole than a man who thinks he is a woman who has sexual fantasizes involving menstruation and little girls in a public washroom. A healthy society would put him in a straight jacket and lock him up.

“Celine Dion launches clothing line that ‘liberates children from traditional roles of boy/girl’”– LifeSiteNews, Fri Nov 16, 2018:

Music icon Celine Dion is the latest major celebrity to attack male/female gender norms. She stars in a new ad that questions who children truly belong to. “Our children. They are not really our children, as we are all just links in a never-ending chain that is life,” the Canadian singer narrates in an ad released this week. “For us, they are everything. But in reality, we are only a fraction of their universe.” The spot follows her breaking into a hospital and making her way to the maternity ward, where male and female newborns are evenly divided into blue and pink sides of the room. “We miss the past; they dream of tomorrow,” Dion continues. “We may thrust them forward into the future, but the course will always be theirs to choose.” She then blows black and silver sparkles around the room, erasing the colors on the walls and transforming the babies’ color-coded attire into new black-and-white garb. The ad then takes a comedic turn, as she’s discovered by security guards and arrested for trespassing, her celebrity status failing to save her from a night in jail…The website also makes clear the project’s ideological mission to offer a “platform for a new humanistic education.” The product line “liberates children from the traditional roles of boy/girl, and enables younger people to grow on values of equality with the freedom to strengthen their own power of personality based on mutual respect,” the website claims…

They’re not women. They’re wannabees. So they make it up.
