Trans Trending-Who is Transitioning

In lieu of repeated comments/arguments and temper tantrums regarding this blog's documentation of the recent phenomena I call Trans Trending-massive numbers of lesbian youth (now some heterosexual as well) who are transitioning, I will head each Who is Transitioning post with this simple guide to Fair Use in order to quell any/all comments on the subject of images used (and rightfully linked) for these posts. By adding a clearer understanding of image use, that can easily be corroborated with a split second Google search, I intend to squelch these childish squabbles in order for us to zero in on the real issues surrounding Trans Trending, its proliferation, propaganda and bigoted reaction to critique regardless of intelligence, merit or scientific proof.

-Patti Smith 

"The empty hand of innocence
Transfusing street of the sorrows
And children of the wood
Hounded, shredding all veils
And winding all sheets of the dead world droning
Overturning tables laden with silver sacrificial birds
Beating goat-skin drums
Advancing with hands out-stretched
And we keep filling them with mercury nitrate, asbestos
Baby bombs blasting blue
Scavengers picking through the ashes
Children of the mills!
Children of the junkyards!
Sleepy, illiterate, fuzzy little rats
Haunted, paint-sniffin',
Stoned out of their shaved heads
Forgotten, foraging, mystical children
Foul-mouthed, glassy eyed, hallucinating"

  1. I found an interesting paper that basically confirms what we've known since forever and what you've said for years. Although it's something already known, its another weapon of reason to pull off whenever these transtrenders come with their "transitioning doesn't make you violent or suicidal" or that taking syntethic hormones and "being yourself" is what you need to be happy.

    Here is the link:
    http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0016885

    And some interesting results found:

    "Persons with transsexualism, after sex reassignment, have considerably higher risks for mortality, suicidal behaviour, and psychiatric morbidity than the general population. Our findings suggest that sex reassignment, although alleviating gender dysphoria, may not suffice as treatment for transsexualism, and should inspire improved psychiatric and somatic care after sex reassignment for this patient group"

    And also this: "Female-to-males, but not male-to-females, had a higher risk for criminal convictions than their respective birth sex controls."

    (if you've already made a post about it, then I apologize).

    1. Did you read the whole paper? All you quoted was out of the abstract, the whole article has some very interesting research if you read this from the results:

      "Transsexual individuals were at increased risk of being convicted for any crime or violent crime after sex reassignment (Table 2); this was, however, only significant in the group who underwent sex reassignment before 1989."

      you see that the crime rate doesn't still apply to more recent people who transition.

      This was also said about the higher mortality rate:

      "It is also possible that transsexual persons avoid the health care system due to a presumed risk of being discriminated."

      And also this article is in no way suggesting that transitioning is bad for people who suffer from gender dysphoria. It is said in the conclusions and even what you quoted that after transitioning they should continue to have psychiatric care.

      One last quote from the article from the strengths and weaknesses portion

      "Other facets to consider are first that this study reflects the outcome of psychiatric and somatic treatment for transsexualism provided in Sweden during the 1970s and 1980s. Since then, treatment has evolved with improved sex reassignment surgery, refined hormonal treatment,[11], [41] and more attention to psychosocial care that might have improved the outcome."
