If you really care about transgender people, stop normalizing this “death sentence” agenda

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

 

In December of 2012, a small committee of the American Psychiatric Association voted to stop calling transgenderism a mental illness.

Suddenly, what used to be called "gender dysphoria" became a weapon the left used to test everyone else:

Will you accept insane attacks on society, if they’re done in the name of trans rights?

When the Lindsay Shepherd thing exploded at Wilfrid Laurier University, what really irked her university was that she showed a video clip of Professor Jordan Peterson, who refuses to use made up gender pronouns like "zhe" and "zher" instead of "he" and "her."

Laurier’s massively-funded Transgender Office was furious, too. I bet most Laurier alumni didn’t know they had one. In fact, I’d be surprised if there was a single actual trans person at that university until it became cool — free stuff, special rights, lots of attention.

Not all of it good, as I'll show you tonight, in depth.

A study by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, in concert with UCLA’s school of law, found that 41 per cent of transgender people surveyed had tried to commit suicide. (The national average is 4.6 per cent.)

And the number actually goes up after sex change treatments begin.

If you care about transgender people — especially youth — stop pushing them down this road.

And, no, it’s not “transphobic” to say so — it’s the opposite, actually...

NEXT: Quebec broadcaster and author Eric Duhaime talks with me about what really happened at a "far-right" protest in Quebec City. You may have heard that police made dozens of arrests — but do you know who was arrested?

We also discuss the violent Montreal anarchist website we told you about last week, and Eric explains why he thinks Quebec politics are taking a conservative turn.

THEN: Over the weekend, our own David Menzies interviewed Lindsay Shepherd at a rally supporting her freedom of speech. Watch the whole conversation!

FINALLY: Your messages to me — and a story about a transgender person who worked for the Rebel, and how one of our videos changed his life...

All I am saying is radical feminism has been the friend of no one, the gay and trans community most specifically. They are perpetuating and pushing by their weird sex ed classes and tranny story times, letting 6 year olds wear dresses to school and start transition before the age of consent. Who do you think is responsible for these things. men? Feminism is cancer in this day and age. Twisted feminists have pushed this post modernist destruction. Mto F or the other way around is not the point at all.

Andrew ask yourself why do more women feel the need to transition from female to male? I can answer that simply for you ,but why don’t you give it a try.?
I’ll give you two hints. The patriarchy and toxic masculinity (often linked but not the same thing). Three hints. It has to do with envy, lack of self, and a generalized hatred for the above. Oh damn I guess I just explained it.
Having said that, I do recognize that it is a generalization, but there does seem to be a trend. Andrew I am not sure there is a discrepancy between the number of female to male and male to female transitions”

You didn’t really provide any explanation to your answer.

My point is that if there’s a disproportionate influence on one vs the other, you’d expect that to show up in the final numbers. Historically MtFs widely ounumbered FtMs but that gap has closed in the last decade or so. This suggests that the pressure to become feminine has actually declined over time, rather the opposite. You’re claiming someone is pressing the accelerator, but the car is slowing down.

Melodramatic Andrew.?? It’s my choice that men use the men’s washroom, ladies and girls use the women’s washroom and queer folk can have a washroom dedicated to them and they stay the hell out of the other two.. There… problem solved.!! :

Ah, but there’s the problem. You can’t make that decision for other people, it’s a free society. You can choose to not partake yourself, but projection beyond infringes upon the rights of self-determination in a free society. Freedom means you can choose not to participate, but you can’t stop other people from doing so.

I do agree that neutral bathrooms are probably the answer. European style bathrooms where each toilet is in its own little room might be something to look at.

I seem to have forgotten why you support this queer shit… And you’re weird because you’re a woman hiding behind a man’s name and I’m just wondering what level of transition you have achieved in trying to be a man.” I do it because I know that ambiguity in the face of a black-and-white worldview tends to piss off adherence to that worldview. Which is to say, I do it for you, sweetie :)

Does anyone know exactly what proof was furnished in court which proves that a person simply by desiring can change genders? "
The law is agnostic and recognizes that it’s a personal choice. In the eyes of the law, there is no need to define it at all.

Ya, “Girls shut up and take it.” The war on women, girls and our safety! All creating a chaotic backward society. If the parents took all the kids out of these clubs, how would they continue to exist? How many Transgender kids would there be in these groups?. Looks like a lot of the parents also have a mental problem. “In the end times, God will send a powerful Delusion so that they believe the lie.” 2 Thessalonians 2:11.

The issue is in the mind not the sex organs!

Andrew, and there is a lot of truth in MARKUS SAUFFERER’s comment. Emotional stress, trauma and abuse in susceptible individuals can lead too often to irrevocable life decisions.

Having said that, I do recognize that it is a generalization, but there does seem to be a trend. Andrew I am not sure there is a discrepancy between the number of female to male and male to female transitions. The male to female transitions are often, but not always, an indication (in my opinion) of misguided women/mothers, feminists ‘pussifying’ our boys by telling them repeatedly that they need to be more sensitive and caring, and subservient to women. They are never good enough, quiet enough, gentle enough and need to check their ‘privilege’

Then of course there is marketing for that new sort of caring man. Short pant suits, man buns, man purses, make up and skin care products (for your special guy)and the like, not to mention too much soy product. The result has been lowered testosterone levels the likes of which man kind has never seen before, The result is men either remain the gender they were born with but are pussified or if slightly more confused, gullible, or crazily brought up say ,to heck with it, I always liked boobs and heels , why not be it, looks like they get a better rap anyway.
But basically this is a feminist led post modernist conceived agenda. Political agenda.
And it is abuse at its most sophisticated level.

I will add that interference with in a child’s naturally developing sexuality by an adult teacher, parent or government is child abuse. I don’t give a rats ass what Kathleen Wynne says to the contrary.

These folks have a much higher rate of other psychiatric problems in addition to gender dysphoria. Mutilation and hormones doesn’t address this; nor does society participating in their delusion.

Does anyone know exactly what proof was furnished in court which proves that a person simply by desiring can change genders? I mean if such proof exists someone must have access to it? We saw from the Lady Menzoid video that anyone can just claim to be a woman but if such people really exist how can they prove to the court that they are not just fakers?

I seem to have forgotten why you support this queer shit… And you’re weird because you’re a woman hiding behind a man’s name and I’m just wondering what level of transition you have achieved in trying to be a man. Like it or not Annie … Admit it or not Annie … You are a woman with penis envy towards men. You hide behind other excuses for pretending to be a man but I wouldn’t be surprised to find you saving money for the transitional surgery. But then again you could probably get the surgery for free and make some poor guy waiting for a triple bypass to wait longer so you can have a dick stitched up to your leg. How selfish is that.?? Some fucking queer would accept electorate surgery using a limited dollars in a healthcare system making somebody wait for life-saving care so another queer can feel better about themselves for a month or two then realize what they have done and then commit suicide.

I’m really curious what causes someone to declare themselves “transgendered” or one of the other gender bending “identities”. While it is true that some people are born with a genetic defect which results in an unusual external genital expression or unusual levels of hormones typically associated with a gender, these incidences are very low. It is known, for example, that a large percentage of homosexual folks can relate their sexual orientation to a past experience of emotional, physical or sexual abuse. I would suspect that the same could be true of trans folks, and that they are first of all uncomfortable with their identity or some painful event in their past, and are desperately trying to be someone else, to escape this dark past. I would expect a high rate of depression within such a group of people. That is to say, some people are depressed first, then come out at trans in an effort to fight the factors accounting for their depression, and when, even after transitioning and surgery, etc. the problem remains unresolved, they fall deeper into depression. In other words, trans people don’t turn into depressed people, but many depressed people identify as “trans” in order to try to escape their depression.

I have to believe there are some journalists who are not happy looking the other way at Antifa violence. If not it’s because they haven’t felt the end of their bat. We should not deceive ourselves into believing that the kind of mass purges that happened in Communist countries could never happen here.

The courts use to concern themselves with scientific evidence to support positions in law suits. If a man can be a woman simply based on wishful thinking what evidence was used to prove this? Why should anyone else be forced to play along if there is no evidence?

Meant to say this before, but respecting other people’s choices isn’t an “attack on society”. Don’t be so melodramatic.

With sites like the REBEL , the people are getting a real education "

I don’t think people come to the Rebel to be “educated”, I think they come here to find confirmation of pre-existing beliefs.

The implication here that transitioning leads to increase suicide rates is of course not something claimed in the study above – it’s just as likely that, since dysphoria is associated with suicide risk, that more severe cases have higher risk. They’re also likelier to actually pursue transition. Correlation doesn’t mean causation. With appropriate supporting evidence you can argue for a causal link, but that’s not what’s done here. If they’re both consequences of something else, “encouraging” or “not encouraging” something does not affect the individual’s suicide risk. Hostility rather than supporting of their beliefs may actually heighten risk – and in this case there IS a known causal link between stigmatization and suicide.

If you’re being educated, it’s badly.

Exactly my point Andrew. "

Perhaps I’ve misunderstood your point, then. I’m probably oversimplifying, but generally, you claimed it was some sort of push towards mass feminization? That’s not exactly well supported by my point that the net balance of trans individuals is slightly towards male (ie, more females are transitioning to male than vice-versa), which suggests no such pressure exists, and it may actually be the other way (though the slight predominance may not mean anything at all). . Can you elaborate on where you think this discrepancy arises?

So much to comment on…again! Keep hitting them out of the ball park Ezra.
I can only say this – the left have basically all gone nuts and we have to effectively deal with them and their insanity somehow, before it’s too late for the rest of us…and things seem pretty desperate right now.
Desperate times call for desperate measures!

I am pleased that Eric was on to report on that thing in Quebec. I was listening to CBC the other day and they had a report on it. Funny thing was that they did talk about the protesters and anti-protesters, and that the anti-protesters were creating some problems for police, but they never did say on the report what the whole demonstration was all about. I think they mentioned the two groups names, but not once, even with a reporter on the ground at the scene, did they say anything about the cause of the protest. That sent the red flags flying high on my detection system! This report from Eric finally enlightened me on what was going on. Good job CBC!

CBC needs to be thrown on the scrapheap – they are sickening. Although I must admit that “The Debaters” with Steve Patterson (sp?) can be really funny sometimes.
