The Transgender Racket-Texas Turns On The Light

Public schools are pushing an ideology, entertainment is pushing an agenda, big pharma is pushing profits, which is pushing some in the medical field---but Texas is pushing the light switch.

God bless Texas. 

Texas has issued a formal opinion stating--on the basis of their legal and medical research---the use of trans surgeries and puberty blockers is child abuse.

Their position is rattling progressives across Texas and across the country.

The "truth" stands in direct defiance of what parents and kids are being told by all of the above institutions.

Be informed, not misled.

Each day your children and grandchildren go to public school they are exposed to radical--- in-your-face indoctrination.

Little kids there to be educated are faced with messages like, "Some people are trans. Get over it."

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has released a formal opinion concluding that performing certain sex-change procedures and treatments "can legally constitute child abuse under several provisions of chapter 261 of Texas Family Code."

The opinion says, "Beyond the obvious harm of permanently sterilizing a child, these procedures and treatments can cause side effects and harms beyond permanent fertility."

In a statement, Paxton said there was "no doubt that these procedures are 'abuse' under Texas law, and must be halted."

Here's the problem.

Last December, Paxton’s office announced an investigation into Endo Pharmaceuticals and AbbVie Inc. under the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act due to the promotion of medications as puberty blockers. The Food and Drug Administration has not approved the use of puberty-blocking drugs for the sake of gender transition but has approved such medication for children who start puberty at a very young age.  

Some medical organizations, however, contend that puberty blockers and other gender transition procedures for minors can be beneficial to children suffering from gender dysphoria.

The American Medical Association, for example, released an open letter last April arguing that state governments should not prohibit gender reassignment procedures for youth.

“Such decisions must be sensitive to the child’s clinical situation, nurture the child’s short and long-term development, and balance the need to preserve the child’s opportunity to make important life choices autonomously in the future,” stated the AMA in a letter.

“We believe it is inappropriate and harmful for any state to legislatively dictate that certain transition-related services are never appropriate and limit the range of options physicians and families may consider when making decisions for pediatric patients.”

According to the Mayo Clinic, the benefits of puberty-blocking medicines for gender dysphoria “might” include reducing depression among youths and preventing the need for future surgery.

Nevertheless, the clinic warns that taking puberty blockers remains a “big step” that can have a long-term impact on bodily growth, bone density, and fertility.

“In addition, delaying puberty beyond one’s peers can be stressful,” the Mayo Clinic explained. “Your child might experience lower self-esteem.”

However, there are many legitimate voices in "science" that strongly disagree.

The American College of Pediatricians, an association of physicians and healthcare professionals "dedicated to the health and well-being of children," has long voiced its opposition to using puberty-blocking drugs on children with gender dysphoria. 

"There is not a single long-term study to demonstrate the safety or efficacy of puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and surgeries for transgender-believing youth," the association says in an online statement. "This means that youth transition is experimental, and therefore, parents cannot provide informed consent, nor can minors provide assent for these interventions. Moreover, the best long-term evidence we have among adults shows that medical intervention fails to reduce suicide."

While public schools and entertainment are pushing their agenda, big pharma is pushing for profits.

Researchers are churning out biased studies promoting medical gender transitions for children, often funded by pharmaceutical companies, and activist organizations---then the media reports on the biased conclusions.

The Daily Caller published an excellent article on the subject of collusion between pharma, research, and medical science.

This is an overview:

  • Researchers promoted the medical transition of children through biased research after receiving funding from pharmaceutical companies that produce hormone therapy medications.
  • Activists at an organization with the stated goal of helping young people obtain medical transitions published research claiming to find an association between medical transitions and improved mental health.
  • Media outlets are promoting this research uncritically while failing to mention problems with methodology and conflicts of interest.

I would encourage parents and grandparents to read the Daily Caller piece and its links.

One example: 

A comprehensive review of nine studies failed to find evidence that hormonal therapy and puberty blockers were helpful. The review pointed out common flaws in transgender treatment research, such as confounding variables and bias resulting from observational studies that lack control groups.

Yet the media has widely publicized studies funded by pharmaceutical corporations and activist groups which claim to find that “gender-affirming” medical care, such as hormones that block children from going through puberty, is good for kids’ mental health.

Stanford University published a Jan. 12 study on childhood hormone therapy funded by the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP), which, according to a Stanford press release, is supported financially by pharmaceutical giants Arbor and Pfizer. Both companies produce hormonal medications used in gender transitions. (RELATED: How Activists Are Hardwiring ‘Race Marxism’ Into The Medical Field)

AACAP is an outspoken advocate against laws regulating or restricting puberty blockers, hormone therapy, and sex-change surgeries for children. It awarded its Pilot Research Award, which supports child and adolescent psychiatry research, to Dr. Jack Turban, the lead author on the Stanford study, in May 2019.

Another example is the "Trevor Project." The Trevor Project is a transgender activism group, that claimed their "research found a positive relationship between hormone therapy for transgender youth and reduced depression and risk of suicide."

The takeaway.

There is no legitimate research that shows any benefit from the current so-called "therapy" for people experiencing gender dysphoria.

Will the actions by Texas make a difference?

A children’s hospital in Houston, Texas has stopped providing hormone therapy to transgender children following Gov. Greg Abbott’s order directing the state to open child abuse investigations into the parents of minors receiving “gender-affirming” health care.

Local CBS-affiliated outlet KHOU reported that a spokesperson for Texas Children’s Hospital wrote in a statement that “this step was taken to safeguard our healthcare professionals and impacted families from potential criminal legal ramifications.”

Obviously, President  Biden was rattled by the actions of Texas when he said in his State of the Union address: "The onslaught of state laws targeting transgender Americans and their families is wrong. As I said last year, especially to our transgender Americans, I will always have your back as your president."

Perhaps he should simply "get off their back."

On Wednesday, the White House issued a statement on Texas' investigation into the parents of "transgender youth" calling it a "cynical and dangerous campaign" and "government overreach at its worst."

Transgenderism is the tip of the spear.

Recently Dr. Rich Swier wrote this:

In the U.S., the transgender narrative is being protected, but to what end? California just passed a new law allowing children to get sex changes without telling their parents, so the transgender agenda is being used as a weapon to cut parents out of the picture and tear down the family. Then there’s the whole move to erase biological sex designations from official records, like driver’s licenses and even birth certificates. It’s to the point where even medical schools apologize for differentiating between male and female patients.

But the insanity doesn’t stop there.

According to transgender doctrine, men can get pregnant and need abortions. The point of all this insanity is to tear society down to ‘build it back better’ with totally new concepts that just so happen to serve a tiny subversive elite that seeks to control our thoughts and rule over us. This is a communist technique. In Russia, it was called ‘the New Soviet Man.’ It comes straight out of Marx who preached the utter destruction of absolutely everything with a constant barrage of new ideas that contradict previous ideas, including our founding principles. The process is called dialectical negation and it is the Left’s weapon of choice to destroy America as we know it. They will keep sending guided missiles like transgenderism into society until there’s nothing left and they can take over because people are confused and don’t know what they stand for, any longer.

That makes transgenderism a giant con job.  The issue is never the issue.  The issue is always wealth and power for a tiny elite.    Women, you’ve especially been conned by transgenderism.  You’re getting a rotten deal under the new orthodoxy.  Your sports have been destroyed, your battered women’s shelters are no longer safe, and you can’t get justice if you’re raped by a transgender biological male.  The authorities will cover it up, just like in Virginia.  The patriarchy strikes again.

And we’re ALL being conned by transgenderism into believing male is female, up is down, and nothing that has been built in society up to this point is worth preserving.  But it is possible to fight back and win, and that’s exactly what I encourage you to do, at school boards and everywhere else the Left is trying to control our thoughts and destroy life as we know it.

The Prophet Isaiah (5:20) wrote: "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter."
