One of the big lies told by the LGBT movement is that so-called “gender-affirming care” helps transgender individuals avoid the massively-elevated risk of suicide associated with the lifestyle.
These are the lies perpetrated by pro-trans groups such as The Trevor Project in order to stop legislation meant to protect children from being drugged and prepared for mutilation by profit-driven doctors who have made a mockery of their Hippocratic Oath.
“Medical affirming care can include treatments that postpone physical changes as well as treatments that lead to changes that would affirm one’s gender identity. Pubertal suppression, commonly known as “puberty blockers,” is used to delay the onset of puberty, and hormone therapy is used to promote gender-affirming physical changes. Pubertal suppression and hormone therapy are two components of patient-centered care for youth that have been supported by empirical evidence,” the Trevor Project writes on their website to advocate the drugging of children.
However, an analysis by Intellectual Takeout shows that these “empirical studies” are being severely misrepresented, and that drugging children to prevent natural bodily development isn’t good for their mental and physical health after all.
Bioethics writer Michael Cook came to the conclusion that one commonly cited study from Sept. 2019 is methodologically dubious. It came to the conclusion “gender identity conversion efforts” are associated with an “increased odds of lifetime suicide attempts.”
The study recruited 27,715 people through LGBT advocacy organizations, was authored by transgender people with a clear agenda to promote their own lifestyle, ignored the differences between people with gender dysmorphia and people who identify as transgender, and did not control for individuals with psychiatric illness.
“The number of persons who at one point suffered from GD but no longer do far outnumbers those who have persistent and consistent GD and thus identify as transgender,” a critic of the study pointed out.
Cook also noted many problems with another study that determined “access to puberty blockers during adolescence is associated with lower odds of transgender young adults considering suicide.” This study from the journal Pediatrics is routinely used to justify the drugging of vulnerable and confused children who have been led to believe they are transgender.
However, the actual results of the study seem to show that this conclusion is grossly misleading at best. The study demonstrated virtually no difference in people who considered suicide and made a plan to do it in the past year for those on puberty blockers against those not on puberty blockers. It also showed that the percentage who actually went through with a suicide attempt actually increased slightly within those on puberty blockers versus those not on puberty blockers.
The most startling statistic found in the study was that the number of individuals who attempted suicide and were hospitalized in the last 12 months actually doubled from 22.8 percent to 45.5 percent when comparing those off puberty blockers with those on the harmful drugs. The data is fudged, Cook believes, because proponents of transgenderism focus on suicide attempts and suicidal thoughts of people over the course of their lifetime, which are inherently less accurate.
Cook notes that “memories of a whole lifetime are bound to be foggy; memories of the past 12 months will be sharper and more accurate.”
“For parents, it must be terrifying when trans kids talk about suicide. But most of them eventually break through their emotional confusion and will be happy with their gender identity. In most cases, parents just need to wait out the storm,” Cook wrote.
“What should really terrify them is the reality of transitioning. Like poor Jazz Jennings, their kids could end up mutilated for life – and still they might be at risk of committing suicide,” he concluded.
When it is all said and done, the medical treatment of transgender children could go down as one of the most ghastly examples of scientific atrocities in all of human history.
Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds Refuses to Implement Widespread Mask Mandates and Bar Closures Over Newest COVID-19 Panic
Another Republican governor with courage.
Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds (R) is refusing to implement Draconian mask mandates and bar closures despite recent reports that cases are surging throughout the state.
According to a report in The Guardian, cases of COVID-19 are spiking throughout Iowa. Ames and Iowa City, two college towns, are reportedly being hit hard due to young people refusing to live their lives in fear.
“Community transmission continues to be high in rural and urban counties across Iowa, with increasing transmission in the major university towns,” a fear-mongering report from the White House coronavirus task force warned. “Mask mandates across the state must be in place to decrease transmission.”
Reynolds thus far is not bucking to political pressure that would lock down the state, crippling small businesses and making a mockery of the Bill of Rights and Constitution. She has only closed bars in six counties throughout the state while just “strongly encouraging” people to wear masks, arguing that they are “not a silver bullet.”
“I still believe it’s up to the governors in the various states to make those decisions,” Reynolds said in her refusal to let the feds usurp her authority.
Reynolds believes that it is “social activity among young adults” that is causing the virus to spread more quickly. Young people are the least likely to die from COVID-19, with new figures released by the CDC indicating that the vast majority of people who died from the virus had serious comorbidities. The facts, however, are not stopping the fear cultists from arguing for another shutdown.
“Our numbers are clearly terrifying,” said University of Iowa associate professor Naomi Greyser to CNN. “They’re really scary and my students are scared.” Greyser and other academics hope to get paid by the taxpayer for not doing their jobs this school year because of COVID-19.
Republican U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa is casting doubt on the numbers that are being reported by medical professionals.
“These healthcare providers and others are reimbursed at a higher rate if Covid is tied to it, so what do you think they’re doing?” Ernst said.
Although the Iowa Medical Society called Ernst’s comments “incredibly disappointing,” there have been many reports of case numbers being exaggerated or falsified throughout the country, as Big League Politics has noted:
Many states are inflating their reports of COVID-19 cases by counting positive antibody tests among those who have the illness, according to a report from Nicole Saphier, M.D…
This has reportedly resulted in people being counted twice due to testing positive for COVID-19 and then testing positive for having antibodies.
Making the situation even more of a cluster, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have claimed that antibody tests are wrong at least half of the time.
“Serologic test results should not be used to make decisions about grouping persons residing in or being admitted to congregate settings, such as schools, dormitories, or correctional facilities,” the CDC wrote in their guidelines.
“Serologic test results should not be used to make decisions about returning persons to the workplace,” they continued.
“In most of the country, including areas that have been heavily impacted, the prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 antibody is expected to be low, ranging from less than 5% to 25%, so that testing at this point might result in relatively more false positive results and fewer false-negative results,” the CDC determined.
The Republicans of Iowa are showing the backbone that is needed to prevented America from permanently losing all of her liberties due to COVID-19 mass hysteria.
