Rapid-onset gender dysphoria: New study recruiting parents

4thWaveNow

Many members of the 4thWaveNow community are parents of teens who became convinced they were the opposite sex after a steady diet of social media and/or peer influence. In most of our cases, the transgender identity came on suddenly and with little warning.

Our families’ experiences haven’t been acknowledged nor reflected in the mainstream media, but now a researcher has decided to systematically investigate the phenomenon.

The survey study is being conducted by Lisa Littman, MD, MPH, Adjunct Assistant Professor, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York. Dr. Littman’s survey description is below. The SurveyMonkey link at the bottom of this post contains more detailed information.

If you are–or know of–a parent in this situation, please consider participating in the survey. Note that responses are kept anonymous.

PayPal, Apple, Coca-Cola Reject N.C. ‘Bathroom’ Law But Do Business Where Gay Sex and Cross-Dressing Are Illegal

A spot-on article that clearly identifies the hypocrisy of global companies who have boycotted the state of North Carolina whilst continuing to do business in countries where gays, lesbians and transgender persons are imprisoned.*

“Although many large businesses, including PayPal, Apple, Microsoft, and Coca-Cola, have criticized North Carolina’s new locker room and bathroom law as “discriminatory” to LGBT people, those same four corporations do business in Middle Eastern countries where homosexual conduct and cross-dressing are illegal.

In Saudi Arabia, for instance, homosexual conduct is “punishable by death or flogging,” according to the U.S. State Department.  In Kuwait, practicing homosexuals can face prison terms up to 10 years; cross-dressers can go to prison for up to three years.

PayPal, Apple, Microsoft, and Coca-Cola do business in both Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.

CNSNews.com contacted the press offices of PayPal, Coca-Cola, Microsoft, and Apple by e-mail and telephone asking them to explain their opposition to North Carolina’s bathroom bill while simultaneously conducting business with Saudi Arabia and Kuwait where homosexual behavior is illegal, and where gays and transgender people are imprisoned. None of the companies answered CNSNews.com’s questions.”

The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, hinges on the idea that the school can and should make accommodations for Student A, but those accommodations shouldn’t violate the privacy and safety rights of other students.

What Orwell Can Teach us About the Language of the Dominant Trans-Ideology

“The speech of military strategists and of politicians is characterised by a narcissistic finality. There can be no real reply to the careful and reasonable calculation of the balance of [INSERT THE DOMINANT TRANS-ACTIVIST IDEOLOGY HERE] mass killing in a nuclear war, because everything is so organised that you are persuaded not to notice what it is you are talking about. And when that happens, you cannot intelligently converse or argue: all there is is the definitive language imposed by those who have power. It is a natural extension of the language habitually used to describe the processes of other kinds of war.”

“The main point in all this is that creating a language that cannot be checked by or against any recognisable reality is the ultimate mark of power. What Merton characterises as “double-talk, tautology, ambiguous cliche, self-righteous and doctrinaire pomposity and pseudoscientific jargon” is not just an aesthetic problem: it renders dialogue impossible; and rendering dialogue impossible is the desired goal for those who want to exercise absolute power.”

Olympia WA School Officials: State Gender Identity provision overrides Title IX Equality for Girls Swim Teams

This is disheartening. The rights of a self described “kinky” hetero male override Title IX and thus, an entire girl’s swim team right to privacy. We are definitely moving backwards here, folks.

GenderTrender

Two Washington State high-school Girls Swim Teams were stripped of their Federal Title IX rights by Olympia Washington School officials after the teens and their parents refused to allow the girls to shower with a middle-aged retired military man calling himself Colleen. The man was discovered in the women’s sauna by a high-school teen girls swim team. Parents refused to let their minor girls undress in front of him. As a result, local school officials have forced the girls into a small ancillary locker room space and given use of the women’s locker room to the male.

From KIRO 7 Eyewitness News:

OLYMPIA, Wash. — A transgender woman said she was discriminated against after using the women’s locker room at Evergreen State College. Colleen Francis was using the sauna in a women’s locker room inside the recreation center at the school late in September. The same facility is used by two…
