Anti-LGBTQ Junk Science And Fake News Are Poised To Harm the Future of LGBTQ Equality

Except that this article doesn’t prove anything regarding junk science or fake news. Sure there has been some fake news going around and it’s not just anti-lgbt factions, it’s also from the transgender community as well. And this article is showing that transgender activism cares more about the right to be transgender than child safety. Just look at half of the suicides in children who identify as transgender,

The Transgender Suicide Rate Isn’t Due To Discrimination

And the last one, interesting enough is most likely the story that jump started the transgender activism with children, An Ohio transgender teen’s suicide, a mother’s anguish

In which the only way a child would know they are transgender is by social media,

Carla Alcorn said that she took away her child’s access to social media because the teen was looking at “inappropriate” things on the Internet but would not say what those things were.

There was also another indicator about hormone blockers which is not mentioned in this article, but a child does not know about these things unless they are being told this and the only reason that this Ohio teen was suicidal is because of learning too much about what transgender is and that is what aggravates the symptoms.

To put it simply, I feel like a girl trapped in a boy’s body, and I’ve felt that way ever since I was 4.

This is a typical keyword that these people find. Just look at the results from a Google search. Already there’s an article there, ‘I longed to be a girl from age three’ and this was from a simple google search. On another site, which may or may not be cause for a problem does have the word suicide in it on the side, but you look up ‘what is transgender’ and you’ll find a few articles mentioning conversion therapy and suicide,

Why don’t transgender people get counseling to accept the gender they were assigned at birth?

Counseling aimed at changing someone’s gender identity, sometimes known as conversion therapy, doesn’t work and can be extremely harmful. The belief that someone’s gender identity can be changed through therapy runs counter to the overwhelming consensus in the medical community. Telling someone that a core part of who they are is wrong or delusional and forcing them to change it is dangerous, sometimes leading to lasting depression, substance abuse, self-hatred and even suicide. Because of this, a growing number of states have made it illegal for licensed therapists to try to change a young person’s gender identity (laws apply to those under 18). However, many transgender people find it helpful to get counseling to help them decide when to tell the world they are transgender and deal with the repercussions of stigma and discrimination that comes afterward.

A couple of other sites mention the word suicide and while there was a lot more search results in the past when you simply type in transgender (not so much now) in which is another problem is more than likely if someone is new to being transgender or maybe hear that transgenders attempt suicide, it always is being deflected as “Oh if kids don’t transition early they will be more likely to commit suicide than if they were allowed to transition” or “The reason the suicide risk is so high is because of discrimination”. Which may be true but as shown above in parents accepting their transgender children that the suicide risks are still very high.

Discrimination against transgenders, let’s talk about that for a minute. If you are born black, tall or short, fat or whatever, nothing can really be done for that even with some medical intervention there are some overweight people who simply can’t change their weight even with medical professionals. Transgenders (not to be confused with those who are intersex) on the other hand, there is nothing physically wrong with them. They have all functional body parts and they could coast through life easier being the person they are born as rather than someone that they feel is better. Yes there is a high rate of suicide and much of it is due to discrimination, but it’s more than just discrimination it’s a high risk of being murdered, Transgender couple bombarded with death threats after male partner gives birth to their biological son

That is already past discrimination. Texas federal judge halts Obama protection of transgender health rights, even at the Federal level transgenders are constantly fighting a losing battle for rights. The HB2 law can’t even be rescinded (yet anyway). This shows that living as transgender is not safe. Going back to the original article stating that anti-transgender articles and organizations is harmful to transgender equality, it’s really not about equality but about people’s safety. Of course some of the anti-transgender agenda is simply hateful and anything to condemn transgenders is a win in their book. But the bottom line is that the transgender activism is struggling to understand that many people/parents do not want children to be exposed transgender ideology. For now many parents will have to monitor their child’s internet activity 100% of the time as they should anyway to prevent their child from seeing something they shouldn’t be seeing. Transgender activism will see this as leaving your child in the dark about what transgender means but children do not need to understand this until they get older so they can make a proper decision themselves about it. Most adults know when to stay away from danger, children may or may not but they are usually too young to understand. It’s like touching a hot oven, no one would do such a thing without proper protection or allowing it to cool off so it is able to be handled.

Professionals do need to understand the dangers they are prescribing to their patients. A doctor will tell you not to move your arm around if you break it. They tell you not to eat solid foods after a pulled tooth. To not do any work after getting stitches for the possibility of ripping them open. Just as, if it’s dangerous to live as a transgender.. professionals should not be advocating that people should transition. It is extremely dangerous and as there is plenty of evidence of that shown in this post and others as well, transgenders do not have equality because society will not allow it.
