Why does the media glorify this sort of child abuse?

Okay, so I'm kind of jumping into this halfway through the conversation - so I'll respond to the original post first.

Amyas_Leigh:
You're going to have to find a slightly better source than Daily Mail/The Sun.


At least in your heart you know that this is so wrong that news of it must be just tabloid bs.
Just google '9 year old transgender' and you'll find articles on dozens of different children from four and up that 'came out' as transgender from reputable sources such as the LA times, telegraph, USA today etc.

Gets It.

Not quite.
It was more so the fact that both of those "news sites" continue to post nonsensical jibberish to try to appeal to the masses that are "extremists" of either left or right-winged mentality. There's a middle ground. But way to ignore the rest of a constructive addition to the conversation.

Nowadays, science is catching up with the "social logic" behind transgenderism (sources: https://www.newscientist.com/article/mg23230954-600-transgender-people-have-different-brain-activity-when-touched/ and https://www.newscientist.com/article/dn20032-transsexual-differences-caught-on-brain-scan/). If you have a Springer Link account, I can most likely link you to various other research papers that are similar in nature, but NewScientist is the easiest to link to (and, due to the price, I assume more people have access to it). Science is starting to determine that the brain is wired to be "transgendered" in the sense that it assumes it's the opposite gender. The signs of this are starting to be noticeable in children as young as two years of age. That being said, it's not impossible for a six or nine or twelve-year-old child to feel "at odds" with the gender that they have at birth.

The difference between several decades ago and now is that there's much more social presence that tries to allow people to be who they believe themselves to be. I know you'd argue that it's "transgender propaganda", which it may be (to a degree), but it's impossible to ignore that there is a biological aspect to it that we've not quite yet discovered. We are only just beginning to explore this on a neurological level, in ways that the brain identifies as the "wrong" gender.

Now, before you try to rebuttal this with Dr. Paul McHugh's rhetoric, keep in mind that he's been "biased right" for quite a while now. If you read some of his books and the research paper on the subject, he says nothing that isn't aware to those who are (or, in your mind, "identifies as") transgendered. His two main points in his most recent literature indicate the following logic:

"Being transgendered constitutes a mental disorder in two aspects. The first is that the idea of sex misalignment is simply mistaken (it does not correspond with physical reality). The second is that it can lead to grim psychological outcomes."

Someone who is transgendered knows that it does not correspond with physical reality and this is why there are "grim psychological outcomes" from this misunderstood perception between mind and body (see earlier linked article). McHugh ignores the neurological component in his studies because he isn't qualified to perform a diagnosis on that level. I wouldn't be too surprised to see that there's a rise in transgendered youth; only for us to investigate much later what the actual cause behind this rise would be. I don't mean on a "social propaganda" level but on a level that could be similar to how premature children have been more common due to a rise of genetic defects from those who smoked tobacco or did other drugs during pregnancy. Or is it merely the brain's development behaving differently based on the growth of the child while in the womb altogether?


I'd be willing to bet that the actual incidences of real true physical gender ambiguity is unchanged from its naturally extremely low % incidences.

"Social logic" has all too often been nothing but the tail wagging the dog. And the mere fact that this is being discussed and made a big deal of (for such a truly minute segment of the population that they are statistically nonexistent?) is evidence of the extremely rare phenomena being hijacked and utilized with the aim of providing legitimacy to societal perversions/destruction.

At the level of consciousness, we are neither male nor female, and maybe some people genuinely have some confusion with identifying - but this is no excuse to legitimize making these people into guinea pigs, and take an instance of it, blow it out of proportion, and next think you know little johnny's parents are having him injected with hormone blockers because he played dolls with his sister a couple times.

Legitimizing human experimentation like this is abhorrent.

When my little brother was like 8 we used to play house and he always played a little girl. We used my mom's wig and dressed him up as a girl and he was happy with it (then my mom saw us and she beat me up for dressing the baby boy of the house as a girl )

Now he is married and has kids.

That incident didn't make him a woman, or transgender. Kids are playful at that age, just because they may like something girly doesn't mean they're transgender. I would never let my kid do something like that, we as parents are responsible for their well being and if my kid tells me he wants to be a woman I would tell him that he can do so until he is 18. If after 18 he still feels the same I would support him but not before.

Shoot ..When I was little I was girly AF. I grew up with 3 sisters, let them put makeup on me, played barbies with them. Grown adults even said I was more of a girl (which hurt my feelings) but I turned out just fine ..When I was a kid I wasn't exposed to all the crap on the internet either.. and I think that's the problem.

I feel that even into their teens (even as far as 18) kids are too immature and dont really know what they want especially concerning with their identity. Just cause they like wearing dresses and playing with girly things at some point in their lives doesnt mean that they'll always like doing so. Im sure alot of boys (especially those with sisters) have played dress up or played with dolls and suchat some point in their childhood, and im sure some of have felt that they would be happier as a girl as they were growing up.

Have to agree with raisedinacult in that, just cause you identify with a gender more, even more-so if its the opposite gender, doesnt mean you'll be happy as that gender after using hormone changing drugs.

it just seems more of a social phase derived from wanting to rebel from the norm, and move away from perceived gender grouping. forcing the parents to watch the anime, Wandering son, would do them some good.

You guys do realise you need to undergo multiple psychological evaluations before you can begin transitioning right? It goes a fair bit deeper than just "a boy playing with dolls"

Right. Like you could tell just by looking. So, you don't like the idea of this, fine. But what's the value of going the extra length of trying to discredit someone through baseless slurs.
