“I can’t think of any branch of medicine outside of cosmetic surgery where the patient makes the diagnosis and prescribes the treatment. This doesn’t exist.” – Abigail Shrier.
In this article, I will talk about something that can be seen as cursed, why? because if you say the wrong thing, you can get blasted: Gender Dysphoria. I will try to give a brief explanation and the reason why it needs to be taken seriously, or at least, seen from another point of view, differently to society’s agenda. Intrigued? The continue on for Gender Dysphoria: What They Don’t Want to Tell You!
Gender Dysphoria, a concept found in the DSM-V (The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders), is defined as an individual who does not feel identified with the sex they were assigned at birth.
Just to be clear; some people would say that their “sex” is not the same as their “gender” and you can use that definition but if gender is a social construct, then it would not matter in this case. People, both teenagers and adults, who SUFFER (I will later explain the use of uppercase here) have the following symptoms:
- A marked incongruence between one’s experienced/expressed gender and primary and/or secondary sex characteristics (or in young adolescents, the anticipated secondary sex characteristics)
- A strong desire to be rid of one’s primary and/or secondary sex characteristics because of a marked incongruence with one’s experienced/expressed gender (or in young adolescents, a desire to prevent the development of the anticipated secondary sex characteristics)
- A strong desire for the primary and/or secondary sex characteristics of the other gender
- A strong desire to be of the other gender (or some alternative gender different from one’s assigned gender)
- A strong desire to be treated as the other gender (or some alternative gender different from one’s assigned gender)
- A strong conviction that one has the typical feelings and reactions of the other gender (or some alternative gender different from one’s assigned gender)
They have to manifest at least two of the above symptoms for a duration of at least six months. And in kids, the symptoms are quite similar.
Now, going back to why I used uppercase is because of the treatment; as we can see, this is a mental disorder, therefore it is not a joke but it’s treated as one.
You might have heard of “confirmation therapy”, “confirmation surgery” and (my favourite) puberty blockers.
All this treatment is useless, why? Because if you are treating someone with a mental disorder you want that person to get better, you talk with doctors, psychologists, and psychiatrists and then, if the reason for his / her illness is not just organic/biological (this means that the illness is not related to just a hormonal imbalance caused by the body and just the body, and therefore it can be treated with hormones principally) that person needs to go to therapy to find out the origin of the problem; the root of the cause.
But this is not a simple process whereupon, you can just go to a doctor (or should I say “confirmation doctor”) and just get a “yes” from your “confirmation therapist” allowing immediate access to surgery and pills!
Just to make it clear, therapy DOES NOT confirm nor deny; the therapist will ask you questions to work your problem out together, and that will happen only if you want to be helped. Jordan B. Peterson mentions this in the movie documentary “What is a Woman” by Matt Walsh, which is amazing and it truly shows the reality behind this.
One clip from the movie is when Matt talked with Dr Forcier (a gender “affirmation” pediatrician) who has confirmed given hormones like Lupron, used to perform chemical castration of violent sex offenders, and is now part of transgender hormone therapy. Please make your own conclusions.
This is not supposed to be a long article, this article is just to show admittedly a less than ideal reality.
The reason why the treatment is so difficult to get for these people is that there is a huge amount of money involved behind the scenes (you can research this for yourself) or better still, try to speak up against this ideology and watch the feathers fly!
In the book “Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters” by Abigail Shrier, she talks about how weird this condition is, mostly affecting the male population, but now having shifted completely and it’s grown, the other thing that’s growing is suicide rates, and this is one of the countless reasons why we need to talk about this.
Let’s talk about gender dysphoria for all the people who committed suicide while fighting against this. Let’s talk about it for all the people who are truly suffering and not the big pharmaceutical companies making money behind the scenes. Let’s talk about this for all the people who lost their jobs and lives because they were brave enough to speak up and weren’t among these fake “professionals” and “influencers”. Let’s talk about it, let’s make a difference…
