The Daily Mail  recently reported the case of an 11-year-old boy who has been allowed to undergo a sex change using sex hormone-blocking medication. The adopted boy, Thomas, lives in Berkeley, California, and has lesbian Jewish guardians. He has now adopted the name "Tammy".  He began his hormone-blocking "therapy" at the age of eight and
dresses in female clothes.

While it may disturb some readers that a child's body is interfered with at such a young age, this action represents a clear break from psychiatric tradition. In other words:  "gender-confused" children are being treated according to an
ethically reprehensible double-standard.

The rationale is that he had threatened to mutilate his genitals in the event that his guardians did not allow him to have sex-change surgery:

"[Tammy's guardians] Pauline Moreno and Debra Lobel warn that children with gender identity disorder forced to postpone transitioning could face a higher risk of suicide.... Citing a statistic from the Youth Suicide Prevention Program, Ms Moreno noted over 50 percent of transgender youth will have had at least one suicide attempt by their 20th birthday."

The real issue is that "transgender youth" are being permitted to extort special medical treatment...merely by threatening to hurt themselves.

article-2043345-0E26967B00000578-81_306x423.jpgThat is not healthy, neither for children, nor for the psychiatric profession.

Imagine a young American child, perhaps of above-average intelligence, who has from very early youth constantly exhibited an obsession with, say, French culture. He watches only French films and TV, listens only to French radio programs via the Internet, studies French on his own and practices with his tolerant parents (who try to keep up), follows French clothing styles -- you get the idea. Suddenly, he hits the age of seven and  threatens his parents. "If I can't live in France, I'll start cutting up my face. I'll mutilate my arms. I'll slice off my ears. I may even kill myself."

What would normally happen then? The concerned parents would bring their child to a qualified and understanding child therapist who would then seek to address not the child's obsession with French culture, but his willingness to mutilate himself to get his way.

Here's a sample summary of diagnostic and therapeutic approaches from a Wikipedia article on "self-harm":

"Psychiatric and personality disorders are common in individuals who self-harm and as a result self-harm may be an indicator of depression and/or other psychological problems.[8]... Diagnosis and treatment of the causes of self-harm is thought by many to be the best approach to treating self-harm.[11] But in some cases, particularly in clients with a personality disorder, this is not very effective, so more clinicians are starting to take a DBT (dialectic behavior therapy) approach in order to reduce the behavior itself." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Self-harm#Treatment)

The traditional -- and correct -- therapeutic method is to identify and remediate the source of a child's willingness to self-mutilate. It is NOT the traditional, or correct, method, to give the child everything he or she wants, just because "they might try to hurt themselves otherwise".

There is no reliable psychotherapist on the planet who would say, "Statistics prove that 50 percent of very young children obsessed with foreign cultures try to kill themselves at least once by the time they're 20 years old. Therefore, I recommend strongly that you either ship your child off to a foreign country, or else uproot your lives here and re-settle in a location of your very young child's choice." Because young children possess such great ability of discernment. Right?

Of course no sane therapist would make such a recommendation. The urge to self-mutilate and self-destroy is implicitly indicative of a profound emotional imbalance that generates self-hatred and the impulse to manipulate (abuse) others.

Normal therapeutic practice moves to restore the fullness of self-acceptance that is realized in a healthy individual, and in many cases it doesn't take any kind of medication to accomplish this. Caving in to threats of self-mutilation, by giving an extortionist whatever he or she wants, is ethically, morally, and professionally wrong, but probably professionally illegal as well.

In the case of "transgender youth", an entirely separate double-standard is being established:  let your child go wherever he or she wishes to go, without guidance and without question. When children are the ones calling the shots, merely by threatening to hurt themselves, something has gone profoundly wrong, and the inherent purpose of Parenting is fundamentally challenged.

The ultimate aim of the Illuminati to completely discredit the Family Unit and to assume full control of sexual behaviors and reproductive activity. Here we see the inversion-destruction process in action, at full tilt. Children -- not parents -- call the shots; gender reversal is given special treatment; human reason is turned upon itself and imploded.

from Richard Evans

Children don't 'call their own shots' because they're not fully aware of what they want.   It's always been well known that children are highly suggestible.  Easily manipulated by perverts.  The little boy obviously learned his 'gender identity disorder' living with the lesbians who are playing 'house' - with a living 'doll' to play dress up. 

Most transsexual males were raised by a dysfunctional single parent that wanted them to be a girl.  

What I see is a new kind of 'family' which won't biologically reproduce.  I believe that's a major reason to top want this agenda made mainstream.   To the State it's just another boy who will never reproduce.   It's Margaret Sanger's dream.

Look at the contradiction between these two agendas.

Female genital mutilation laws to be toughened against families
http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2011/jul/22/female-genital-mutilation-laws-families
Female genital mutilation is an illegal procedure in the UK with those convicted risking 14 years' imprisonment. The Female Genital Mutilation Act of 2003 also allows for the prosecution of British citizens who breach the provisions of the act and perform the procedure abroad.


(But if a little boy's parents thinks he wants to be shot up with estrogen to grow tits in preparation to have his genitals surgically removed,  it's celebrated.
I predict in ten years the state will pay for boys to be gelded at 11.)

"I think we're a very normal family," said Renee's husband, Scott. "I think we have a very healthy marriage. We love to watch our children in all of their activities, whether it's at school, or on the field playing sports."
'You're Special'
On the surface, the Jennings and their four children are a typical American family. But their youngest child, Jazz, is only in kindergarten, and already she is one of the youngest known cases of an early transition from male to female.
"We'll say things like, 'You're special. God made you special.' Because there aren't very many little girls out there that have a penis," said Renee. ..."

read the article about the 11-year-old boy undergoing gender reassignment...I was shocked and appalled...and look at the pictures. That child looks very unhappy. I cannot believe that this is happening in the US in major medical centers.

Just FYI and I am betting that you are unaware of this....San Francisco has long been known as a gay mecca. Were you aware that most major employers in San Francisco have insurance policies that will cover the cost of gender reassignment? Yep.

Check it out for yourself. Used to be that gender reassignment was exceedingly rare, required years of psychotherapy and testing and approval by a medical board before it could be performed and it was not ever covered by insurance. Now it is apparently pretty common place in San Francisco if they have to have special insurance coverage for that procedure or procedures.. As the leader of such events, it can't possibly be long before other states adopt this as well, right? Well y'all hurry and move to San Francisco and get your coverage for your gender reassignment covered before Obamacare is implemented because then you are just out of luck...in more ways than one.

Not laughing here.
