Resolution on Gender and Sexual Orientation Diversity in Children and Adolescents in Schools-Official Policy on all things Trans Kids-Teens Part 1

Before I delve into the new OFFICIAL transgender kid/teen policy being pimped out as I write this to a school near you, I wanted to do a separate post on those who dreamed up this little anti gay/lesbian/feminist ditty.
Children, Youth and Families Committee:
Committee for Transgender People and Gender Diversity:
So this whole committee consists of ONE self hating dyke who has transitioned herself! Can we say BIASED!!!!! Where are the anorexics making policy on anorexia? The mentally retarded making policy on mental retardation? The schizophrenic's making policy on schizophrenia??? The borderline personalities making policy on BPD???? Think about it!!!

School Psychology:
APA Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Concerns:
National Association of School Psychologists:
Now you tell me, how would ANY of these bureaucratic pencil pushing self hating lesbian pro transitioners understand/deal with girls like this?

I'm not a boy. But I'm in boy space. I navigate boyhood while being a girl. I learn the boy ropes. Boy rules are applied to me. I find myself partly confused, and partly proud by this application. I don't remember filling a boy app. out though, but surely I must have. I forgot is all. I have no girl friends, only boy friends, of them it is a constant sizing up; him sizing me up, me him, him him. "Do you want to wrestle" a boy asks? "Ok" I answer. I take him down quickly. I now understand the game, I'm three years old. "Wrestling" is fighting, without fighting. "Wrestling" tells us both who is stronger, it tells other boys too. If Paris is the toughest boy in 3rd grade and I beat Paris wrestling? I beat Paris, but I'm not a boy. There will be a long line of boys I will wrestle in my youth, I will beat them all, a true Olympian only without the gold or glory.
I also learn from my boy-girlhood that if hurt I cant cry, REAL boys don't cry. I'm not a real boy anyways, I'm a girl, so I cant even afford to wince. Not even while jumping a ramp 5 cement bricks high (the record) and landing on my head sliding onto the gravel road I live on. I didn't cry. Not even while my friend is taking his school ruler (a trick I discovered) to scrape the gravel from underneath the skin in my back and shoulder where it had caught. I still have the scar on my right shoulder.

Fourth, fifth and six grade I have to catch the bus from the elementary school. The winters my best friend and I leave early to catch the bus so we have time to play King of the Mountain. The pile of snow is as tall as the school and as we approach, littered with a few dozen boys. We're a team. We take the mountain over right off, only he and I on top, we defend the mountain till the bus comes. We do this all winter, some boys hate us, but they're only peasants, we're Kings! I learn in school only boys are Kings, I'm confused again.


What is your verdict? Would she be labeled transgender?

  7. That narrative is a really great example, Dirt. It's very clear how the answer to your question could swing either way depending on someone's beliefs and background.

    "Would she be labeled transgender?"
    To me: She's a female, that's immutable due to biological laws. Her behavior and personality might not be the norm...but hell, that's ok! Being different has its hardships, but it also comes with its own perks. If she nurtures her competitive spirit and individual qualities instead of focusing how "wrong" they are, I see a bright, successful future for her.

    I think society would be inclined to label her as "transgender." Last time I checked, the word "transgender" is an umbrella term and includes those who are even slightly gender non-conforming. Under this definition, even Dirt and Petre would be considered "transgender." ("Transsexual" means actually getting operations and changing stuff around medically.) I don't really subscribe to this definition though. It would mean I'm "transgender" too, but what does that even imply?

  8. "I think society would be inclined to label her as "transgender." Last time I checked, the word "transgender" is an umbrella term and includes those who are even slightly gender non-conforming."

    The woman who runs this blog is a woman. She has never identified as transgender. I am not transgender. Before the "T", and surgery, the only difference between Chaz and me was I didn't drink the special trans* Kool Aid.

    FACT: It's impossible to even talk about "gender identity" and "gender non-conformity without resorting to sex stereotypes.
    FACT: There is not, and has never been a precise definiton of "gender non-conforming". I don't doubt that non-traditional behavior exists, but it doesn't mean it's "gender non-conforming".

    FACT: "Transgender" is nothing more than a recent cultural phenoemon, and it doesn't exist outside of its particular brainwashed circle of various supporters, allies, "transitioned" people, etc.

    FACT: Transgender activists do NOT have a patent or copyright on all non-traditional behavior both past and present. Throughout history, some intrepid souls have always stepped outside of the boundaries of traditional sex roles. They went by many names.

    FACT: No primate, human or non-human, can change its sex. Trassexuality doesn't exist in primates, or mammals. Please don't bring up rare disorders of sexual development, commonly referred to as intersex, because intersex is not the same as transgender.

    I hate to break it to people, but no one really believes that people can change their sex.

  9. The American Psychological Association should be the last organization on earth to propose polices that directly impacts children.

    (1.) First of all, there is the nasty little inconvenient truth about working with the George W. Bush administration on torture. If they can see no ethical issues with sterilizing children with GnRH agonists and/or cross gender hormones, why would they be bothered by a little waterboarding.

    WASHINGTON — The American Psychological Association secretly collaborated with the administration of President George W. Bush to bolster a legal and ethical justification for the torture of prisoners swept up in the post-Sept. 11 war on terror, according to a new report by a group of dissident health professionals and human rights activists.

    American Psychological Association Bolstered C.I.A. Torture Program, Report Says

    http://www.nytimes.com/2015/05/01/us/report-says-american-psychological-association-collaborated-on-torture-justification.html?_r=0

    As to the field of psychiatry and psychology, they have a horrendous history of ghastly gross human rights violations. Lobotomies and various other experiments on humans are just the tip of the iceburg

  10. This horrid Resolution includes disorders of sexual development, commonly known as intersex. Since these are supposedly educated people, they should know that DSD are not the same as transgender. Disorders of sexual development are quantifiable through genetic and other testing whereas transgender, for all practical purposes, is a culturally defined word. It's really strange because they don't believe intersex children should rush into surgery, but "transitioning" perfectly healthy children is fine.

    I think we can all agree that no child should be teased or bullied. This includes all children - trans, non-trans, black, white, any race, or religion.

    The real issues include all the following:

    (1.) Children feeling pressure to "transition" - we know it's happening...

    (2.) All the cultural influences (internet, t.v., peers, family, ect.) that play a role in children "transitioning" and being labelled "trans"

    FACT: In young children, there is no way of separating cultural influcences from "gender dysphoria".

    (3.) The ethical issues involved in puberty suppression (GnRH agonists, and/or cross gender hormones).

    The American Psychological Association is advocating for the sterilization of children.

    WHEREAS it may be medically and therapeutically indicated for some transgender and other gender diverse children and adolescents to transition from one gender to another using any of the following: change of name, pronoun, hairstyle, clothing, pubertal suppression, cross‐sex hormone treatment, and surgical treatment (Coleman et al., 2011; Forcier & Johnson, 2012; Olson, Forbes, & Belzer, 2011);

    http://www.apa.org/pi/lgbt/resources/about-diversity-schools.pdf

    Treatment with puberty delaying drugs leads to sterilization if it is followed with the administration of cross sex hormones at 16 years, as the Brill and Pepper handbook on “transgender” children (2008), explains, “the choice to progress from GnRH inhibitors to estrogen without fully experiencing male puberty should be viewed as giving up one’s fertility, and the family and child should be counseled accordingly” (Brill & Pepper, 2008, p. 216). For girls, sterilization is the outcome too, because “eggs do not mature until the body goes through puberty” (Brill & Pepper, 2008, p. 216).

    Deliberate delaying a normal part of human development, adolescence, because of what basically amounts to a questionable psychiatric diagnosis in healthy children assumes all the following:

    (a.) The diagnosis of “gender dysphoria” is correct to being with, and there isn’t something else going on in the child’s life.

    (b.) The child is completely free from any parental, peer, or cultural influences. How much is “gender dysphoria” in a 12 year old child, and how do we separate this from everything the parents read on transgender websites and blogs? How much is actual “gender dysphoria” or GID and how much is parental discomfort at having a child that doesn’t fit neatly into sex based gender roles?

    (c.) Children have the mental capacity to decide or choose for themselves.

    It’s a scientific fact that the pre-frontal cortex of the human brain which is sometimes called the judgment center of the brain isn’t fully developed until the early to mid-twenties.

    ”The prefrontal cortex, the part of the frontal lobes lying just behind the forehead, is often referred to as the “CEO of the brain.” This brain region is responsible for cognitive analysis and abstract thought, and the moderation of “correct” behavior in social situations. The prefrontal cortex takes in information from all of the senses and orchestrates thoughts and actions to achieve specific goals. This brain region gives an individual the capacity to exercise “good judgment” when presented with difficult life situations. Brain research indicating that brain development is not complete until near the age of 25, refers specifically to the development of the prefrontal cortex”

    Easy question...it's highly likely that everyone of them would "transition" this girl.

  12. These "experts" are very dangerous to children.

    I want to follow up with Richard Sprott. His expertise, if people want to call it that, is kink. I'm talking about super freak kinky. This man shouldn't be making policies that impact children. That is, unless parents want their kids doing bondage, kink, spank me, lead me around on a leash, etc.

  14. NOT ACCEPTABLE:

    BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the American Psychological Association and the National Association of School Psychologists recommend that administrators create safer environments for gender diverse, transgender, and intersex/DSD students, allowing all students, staff, and teachers to have access to the
    sex‐segregated facilities, activities, and programs that are consistent with their gender identity, including, but not limited to, bathrooms, locker rooms, sports teams,


    (Notice how these "experts" toss in disorders of sexual development (intersex) in with transgender even though every major intersex organization makes a distinction between intersex and transgender. It's my understanding that intersex individuals can fall under ADA. ) The problem is biological males sharing restrooms and locker rooms with female students. What about the privacy rights of female students.

    http://www.apa.org/pi/lgbt/resources/about-diversity-schools.pdf

    Biological males usually undergo sex reassignment surgery at age 18. Pumping kids full of GnRH agonists and/or cross gender hormones will not change their genitalia. Boys will still have their penis and testicles. That is, unless the APA expects teenagers to undergo sex reassignment surgery.

    Allowing males in girl's locker rooms and restrooms violates the privacy rights of girls.

  15. “Treatment of extremely gender variant children will continue to remain controversial since some underlying assumptions of the clinicians are a matter of opinion rather than of empirical data and empirical studies (e.g., clinical trials with random treatment assignment) are neither feasible nor ethical. I wish to conclude by raising some points for the clinicians treating these children to consider:

    (1.) There is no empirical evidence (i.e., controlled study) demonstrating that discouraging childhood cross-gender interests reduces the frequency of persistence into adolescence and adulthood.

    (2.) Since no clinician can accurately predict the future gender identity of any particular child, efforts to discourage cross-gender identifications may be experienced as hurtful and possibly even traumatic by children who do persist into adolescence and adulthood.

    (3.) There is no empirical evidence demonstrating that a prepubescent child who is permitted to transition gender role but then desists can simply and harmlessly transition back to the natal gender.”

    (4.) Since no clinician can accurately predict the future gender identity of any particular child, efforts to encourage public early childhood cross-gender roles may be experienced as hurtful and possibly even traumatic by children who do not persist into adolescence and adulthood.”

    http://online.liebertpub.com/doi/full/10.1089/lgbt.2013.1500

    Does this sound confusing? Who can we make heads or tails of it? Persisters, or children who don’t outgrow gender dysphoria, might experience hurtful feelings and trauma if people try to change cross-gender behaviors. On the other hand, desisters, or children who outgrow their gender dysphoria, might be traumatized by efforts to encourage public early childhood cross-gender roles. That is, a male child who was referred to as “she” for years is now confused and hurt once he goes back to identifying as a boy. Moreover, there is no empirical evidence that says that transitioning back to the sex one is born into is easy and doesn’t come with its own challenges. How will the ten year old boy who identifies as a girl feel when he is eighteen? No one knows for sure, but there has to be a law that says he, rather she, can join the girls in the locker room while he works on his gender identity issues.

  16. According to, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18981931

    “Most children with gender dysphoria will not remain gender dysphoric after puberty. Children with persistent GID are characterized by more extreme gender dysphoria in childhood than children with desisting gender dysphoria. With regard to sexual orientation, the most likely outcome of childhood GID is homosexuality or bisexuality.”

    A simple online google search turns up several examples of children who struggled with gender dysphoria, and later changed their minds as they matured.

    Below is a link to a MTV video of a young man who identified as a girl and now wants to return to being a man. Also, in the MTV video, a young woman who once identified as a boy changed her mind and returned to being a girl. The young man who appears to be in his early twenties discusses having his breast implants removed. In the same MTV video, the young woman who looks like she could be in her mid-twenties is shown undergoing laser treatments to remove the facial hair that was caused by earlier testosterone use.

    Detransitioning stories are easy to run across on the internet. Transitioning essentially means the process whereby one changes his or her outward appearance to match or coincide with how one identifies or feels internally. Transitioning usually involves cross-gender hormones and surgery. Detransitioning is the opposite of transitioning, and there are numerous examples of people stopping cross-gender hormones. Testosterone is commonly referred to as “T” and FTM means female to male.

  17. Interesting articles at this blog.... We know that homosexual conversion therapy via sex reassignment surgery has been going on in Iran for years. Why would one of the most oppressive governments on earth pay for sex reassignment surgery, yet execute homosexuals?

    President Obama, how is this not anti-gay conversion therapy?

    "Somebody explain to me, please: If most children–especially girls–resolve gender dysphoria and grow up to be non-heterosexual adults (and study after study corroborates this finding), how is childhood “gender reassignment” not proactive conversion therapy to prevent adult homosexuality?

    Given these findings, why do doctors, psychologists–and increasingly, compliant parents–assign gender non-conforming children as trans until proven otherwise?

    And can it even be “proven otherwise” if they spend their entire childhoods being told, and treated as if, they are actually the opposite sex?"
