Defend Your Children
It is hard to escape the conclusion that there are powerful players in society that want to bring 3,000 years of western history to an end. And yet, we never hear a clear explanation of what they want to replace it with. Do they actually want to replace anything, or do they wish to socially, spiritually and financially impoverish those with less to increase the relative prosperity of those that already have more?
Naturopaths who have been recommending natural hormones to menopausal women know that once they start down the path of supplementation using progesterone, testosterone, or estrogen the body will shut down producing what is left of it's own hormones.
Not saying I know that this will happen to youth, but it is a possibility that should not be ignored until more is known.
Hormones are more important than most people recognize and people should not mess with them until they know all the risks.
Ironically, the guy with the Barbie "pocket" looked like a Ken doll in the pic with his former band.
Mulvaney is an adult and can get all the plastic surgery he wants. Hell, I'm even agreeable enough and play along and call him "she/her". Not sure I'd call it "gender affirming" surgery if the underlying problem seems to be out of control narcissism. My first line of treatment would be a surgical removal of all social media from the persons life, but I'm not a doctor.
Is this supposed to distract from inflation and the general state of the economy or the ever-escalating Ukraine war? I'm not sure their stance on trans issues will sway rural blue collar votes to the Democrats but I might be wrong (I'm not a political scientist either).
Well done Heather. Great call to be strong.
A lot of this gender-affirmation stuff is strange especially how quickly much of it came about.
I'm remembering how some of my female friends would comment about how much it sucks to have periods and how I wouldn't know how it feels with me being a male. This happened in college only a decade ago, so it's funny to think that these same feminists/women would be targeted for being transphobic now using their own narratives.
It's strange because at that time it was most certainly true: I'm not a female so I don't know what it's like to have periods, but it certainly doesn't mean that should result in unneeded antagonization for something I myself never brought up as a criticism for being female. Now all of us would run afoul for thinking that someone who LARPs as a female would know inherently what being "female" is because of course all females would know what the heck a "Barbie purse" is.
One thing I've heard, although I'm not sure how true it is, is that this LARPer couldn't quite make it in theater and may have chosen to go down this route in order to gain that attention (again, this is more hearsay than something that has some basis in reality). I do believe that there is an issue with social media and the need for attention causing this serious problem. People not having close contact with friends and family who provide them the proper sort of attention that's needed is likely leading to this problem.
The vaccine schedule is one of the most telling things going on. I like to refer to my friend who says these vaccines are probably working on the same level as the flu vaccines (i.e. not very well for most), and yet the flu vaccine is never forced onto students. The fact that we are likely to experience COVID as a seasonal illness moving forward what would this mean needing annual COVID vaccines? I think this is all just building off of "established" policies. I think a lot of what's going on is establishing some precedent under false pretenses and then using such precedent to enact new policies moving forward.
Well said - used to think the government had our well-being - since the beginning of 2020 that has all changed - but I am in my 60s - so for the majority of my life I trusted the government - Messages like these are helping, but for every one message like this there are 100 sending the opposite information - I can't image the pressure young mothers feel now - the majority of mothers do not want to harm their children but so many are being bombarded with false information and don't even realize it. I will share with my daughters and they will share with their friends, every share helps.
To watch many women's and mother's natural tendency for fierce care and compassion hijacked by the trans movement is disheartening to say the least. Many just seem to have easily handed this power away to an ad campaign hiding behind social justice language. No innate protection of girls or women is evident in women who seem to have transferred their protection to boys and young men who ...feel... like women or... little girls. And no innate horror is evident as girls and young women are encouraged to cut off their breasts to ...feel... more like men. Only in the dark stories of fairy tales can I find a place to put this twisted violence against women like the Handless Maiden whose own father, as directed by the devil, cut off his daughter's hands. She grew them back (not the ending of these girl's stories) but it is a tale of the regrowth or growth of Self - maybe the only possible happy ending after losing your self in this ghoulish crusade. Yes. Mothers and other women protectors who can see clearly should be growling and howling with teeth and claws bared.
I am so glad I started motherhood not only questioning doctors, but challenging them on little things (fluoride drops, source of nutrients), and on one big thing: the pertussis shot. I was probably less than agreeable but the love for this little boy overrode all other motivations. The hardest part of motherhood is the day that you can no longer assert your veto, but can only influence your suddenly adult child.
Thank you so much for your eloquent essay. Things are so, so messed up. I’m religious (that’s just me) and to hear what’s going is “satanic”—I get it. It’s a very simple word that encompasses all kinds of grave, maladaptive behaviors. I realize to some that word is cringe and might give people an accountability/responsibility pass, I don’t see it that way. Any rate, I hope more Moms and women in general listen to you and act accordingly. I’m trying.
I have a niece who thinks she’s a dude. Her home life was very awful/abusive (real sad, I was not part of her upbringing)… her declaration is her way of finding some peace I suppose. Not sure what to say.
