Gender Bending

Key Points in this Section

  • SSM brings with it gender theory re-education of our children – the idea that gender is determined by choice, not by birth.
  • A respected world authority on the subject, Professor Paul McHugh, after pioneering sex-change surgery in the 60’s rejected it in the 70’s and until recently, as not only ineffective but harmful, and “should be confronted as an opinion without biological foundation”.
  • Jamie Shupe tells his raw but illuminating story of transitioning from male to female, and then back again.

As mentioned earlier, the introduction of SSM does not stop there. With it comes re-education of children to the new world order. That includes LGBT teaching on gender, a vastly different scene from what we have known. Essential reading is chapter 8 of Stealing from a Child, by David van Gend.

An example? Look at this: (SFAC P147) The Gender Fairy – is a story for Australian four+ year olds by Jo Hirst, with teacher notes by Roz Ward: Promoted by the Safe Schools website, the subtitle is:

“Only you know whether you are a boy or a girl. No one can tell you.”

Former Labor leader Mark Latham made this observation:

The craziest trend in Australian politics is to teach Neo-Marxist genderless programmes in our schools through the Orwellian-named Safe Schools and Building Respectful Relationships (BRR) curriculum…Safe Schools seeks to eradicate the use of terms like “his and her” and “boys and girls”. It believes genderless language will produce a genderless generation of young Australians, self-selecting their sexuality as a fluid identity…As parents we need to make our views known to election candidates and school leaders alike. Anyone who has researched this issue will know we are fighting for the future of our civilisation. (Emphasis added – SFAC P150)

And Rohan Dean, co-host of The Outsiders wrote in the Courier Mail 7/8/2017:

Gay Unions and then Some

The gay marriage debate has been hijacked globally by the hard left, neo-Marxist gender theorists who are waging a cultural war against the traditional institutions of the West.
They are virulently anti-Christian, anti-family, and anti-heterosexuality. None of which is the fault of gay couples who simply wish to get married, crack open the bubbly, and start a family.
Unfortunately, by playing tootsies with the hard-core gender/queer theory ideologues, certain “useful idiots” are doing huge damage to their own cause.

There is much mind-boggling information on this subject – again, essential reading is chapter 8 of Stealing from a Child, by David van Gend. Too much to include here – however the following must be included.

From Stealing from a Child P167, David van Gend writes:

John Hopkins University medical school led the world in surgery for transgender adults back in the sixties; they also led the world in rejecting the practice in the seventies, and (Professor Paul) McHugh was in the middle of it as senior psychiatrist. As recently as August 2016, The New Atlantis (“A Journal of Technology and Society”) called McHugh “arguably the most important American psychiatrist of the last half century”.

Mc Hugh explains that John Hopkins stopped doing the transgender surgery that they themselves had pioneered, because the adults who had undergone surgery “were little changed in their psychological condition.”

Dr McHugh said that he had concluded that Hopkins University had been “fundamentally cooperating with a mental illness. We psychiatrists, I thought, would do better to concentrate on trying to fix their minds and not their genitalia. (Emphasis added)

He said that the condition of believing oneself to be of the opposite sex (called gender dysphoria) “belongs in the family of…anorexia nervosa and body dysmorphic disorder. Its treatment should not be directed at the body as with surgery and hormones, any more than one treats obesity-fearing anorexic patients with liposuction…”

…“Sex change” is biologically impossible. People who undergo sex-reassignment surgery do not change from men to women or vice versa. Rather, they become feminised men or masculinised women. Claiming this is civil-rights matter and encouraging surgical intervention is in reality to collaborate with and promote a mental disorder. (Emphasis added)

Here is another item from Professor McHugh, writing in the Wall Street Journal in 2014. He quoted a 2011 long term study at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden – of 324 people who had sex-reassignment surgery. He said

…about 10 years after having the surgery, the transgendered began to experience increasing mental difficulties. Most shockingly, their suicide mortality rose almost 20-fold above the comparable non-transgender population. (SFAC P168)

In spite of this stark medical and psychological evidence, LGBT activists emphatically teach gender dysphoria should be embraced and celebrated – and this is what our children are now being taught with “Safe” Schools, and would be escalated with the introduction of SSM.

Note there is a rare (2 in 10,000) and unfortunate disorder called “intersex”, where a child’s sex is physically indeterminate. It needs to be said these people have shown no wish to eradicate gender, and they assign to themselves either a male or female identity. See SFAC P173 for a full coverage of this.

Final word from Professor McHugh:

The idea that one’s sex is fluid and a matter open to choice runs unquestioned through our culture and is reflected everywhere in the media, the theatre, the classroom, and in many media clinics. It has taken on cult-like features: its own special lingo, internet chat rooms providing slick answers to new recruits and clubs for easy access for dresses and styles supporting the sex change. It is doing much damage to families, adolescents, and children, and should be confronted as an opinion without biological foundation wherever it emerges. (SFAC P180)

I WAS AMERICA’S FIRST ‘NON-BINARY’ PERSON: It was all a sham. – Jamie Shupe

Four years ago, I wrote about my decision to live as a woman in The New York Times, writing that I had wanted to live “authentically as the woman I have always been” and had “effectively traded my white male privilege to become one of America’s most hated minorities”.

Three years ago, I decided that I was neither male nor female, but non-binary – and made headlines after an Oregon judge agreed to let me identify as a third sex, not male or female.

Now I want to live again as the man that I am.

I’m one of the lucky ones. Despite participating in medical transgenderism for six years, my body is still intact. Most people who desist from transgender identities after gender changes can’t say the same.

But that’s not to say I got off scot-free. My psyche is eternally scarred, and I’ve got a host of health issues from the grand medical experiment.

Here’s how things began.

After convincing myself that I was a woman during a severe mental-health crisis, I visited a licensed nurse practitioner in early 2013 and asked for a hormone prescription. ”If you don’t give me the drugs, I’ll buy them off the internet,” I threatened.

Although she’d never met me before, the nurse phoned in a prescription for two milligrams of oral estrogen and 200 mg of Spironolactone that very same day. She ignored that I have chronic post-traumatic stress disorder, having previously served in the military for almost 18 years. All of my doctors agree on that. Others believe that I have bi-polar disorder and possibly borderline personality disorder.

I should have been stopped, but out-of-control, transgender activism had made the nurse practitioner too scared to say no.

I’d learned how to become a female from online medical documents at a Department of Veterans Affairs hospital website.

After I began consuming the cross-sex hormones, I started therapy at a gender clinic in Pittsburgh so that I could get people to sign off on the transgender surgeries I planned to have.

All I needed to do was switch over my hormone operating fuel and get my penis turned into a vagina. Then I’d be the same as any other woman. That’s the fantasy the gender community sold me. It’s the lie I bought into and believed.

One therapist tried to stop me from crawling into this smoking rabbit hole. When she did, I not only fired her, I filed a formal complaint against her. “She’s a gatekeeper,” the Trans community said.

Professional stigmatisms against “conversion therapy” had made it impossible for the therapist to question my motives for wanting to change my sex.

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (Fifth Edition) says one of the traits of gender dysphoria is believing you possess the stereo-typical feelings of the opposite sex. I felt that about myself, but yet no therapist discussed it with me.

Two weeks hadn’t passed before I found a replacement therapist. The new one quickly affirmed my identity as a woman. I was back on the road to getting vaginoplasty.

There’s abundant online literature informing transgender people that their sex change isn’t real.  But when a licensed medical doctor writes you a letter essentially stating that you were born in the wrong body and a government agency or court of law validates that delusion, you become damaged and confused. I certainly did.

Painful roots

My trauma history resembles a ride down the Highway of Death during the first Gulf War.

As a child, I was sexually abused by a male relative. My parents severely beat me. At this point, I’ve been exposed to so much violence and had so many close calls that I don’t know how to explain why I’m still alive. Nor do I know how to process mentally some of the things I’ve seen and experienced.

Medical malpractice

The best thing that could have happened would have been for someone to order intensive therapy. That would have protected me from my inclination to cross-dress and my risky sexual transgressions, of which there were many.

Instead, quacks in the medical community hid me in the women’s bathroom with people’s wives and daughters. “You gender identity is female,” these alleged professionals said.

The medical community is afraid of the Trans community. Trans men are winning in medicine, and they’ve won the battle for language.

Think of the word “transvestite”. They’ve succeeded in making it a vulgar word, even though it just means men dressing like women. People are no longer allowed to tell the truth about men like me. Everyone now had to call us “transgender” instead.

The diagnostic code in my records at the Veterans’ Affairs (VA) should read “Transvestite Disorder” (302.3).

Trauma and hyper sexuality owing to childhood sexual abuse are all supposed to be red flags for those involved in psychology, psychiatry, and physical medicine, yet nobody except for the one therapist in Pittsburgh ever tried to stop me changing my sex. They just kept helping me to harm myself.

Escaping to “non-binary”

Three years into my gender change from male to female, I looked hard into the mirror one day. When I did, the façade of femininity and womanhood crumbled.

Despite having taken being injected with every hormone and anti-androgen concoction in the VA’s medical arsenal, I didn’t look anything like a female. People on the street agreed. Their harsh stares reflected the reality behind my fraudulent existence as a woman. Biological sex is immutable.

It took three years for that reality to set in with me. When the fantasy of being a woman came to an end, I asked two of my doctors to allow me to become non-binary instead of female to bail me out. Both readily agreed.

After pumping me full of hormones – the equivalent of 20 birth control pills per day – each of them wrote a sex-change letter. The two weren’t just bailing me out. They were getting themselves off the hook for my failed sex change. One worked at the VA. The other worked at Oregon Health and Science University.

To escape the delusion of having become a woman, I did something completely unprecedented in American history. I convinced an Oregon judge to declare my sex to be non-binary – neither male nor female.

In my psychotic mind, I had restored the mythical third sex to North America. And I became the first legally recognised non-binary person in the country.

Celebrity status

The landmark court decision catapulted me to instant fame within the LGBT community. For 10 days nonstop afterwards, the media didn’t let me sleep. Reporters hung out in my Facebook feed, journalists clung to my every word, and a Portland television station beamed my wife and I into living rooms in the United Kingdom.

Becoming a woman had gotten me into The New York Times. Convincing a judge that my sex was non-binary got my photos and story into publications around the world.

Then, before the judge’s ink had even dried on my Oregon sex change court order, a Washington, DC-based LGBT legal aid organisation contacted me.” We want to help you change your birth certificate,” they offered.

Within months, I scored another historic win after the Department of Vital Records issued me a brand new birth certificate from Washington, DC, where I was born. A local group called Whitman-Walker Health had gotten my sex designation on my birth certificate switched to “unknown“. It was the first time in DC history that a birth certificate had been printed with a sex other than male or female.

Another transgender legal aid organisation jumped on the Jamie Shupe bandwagon, too. Lambda Legal used my non-binary court order to help convince a Colorado federal judge to order the State Department to issue a passport with an “X” marker (meaning non-binary) to a separate plaintiff named Dana Zzyym.

LGBT organisations helping me to screw up my life had become a common theme. During my prior sex change to female, the New York-based Transgender Legal Defence and Education Fund had gotten my name legally changed. I didn’t like being named after the uncle who’d molested me. Instead of getting me therapy for that, they got me a new name.

A Pennsylvania judge didn’t the name change, either. Wanting to help a transgender person, she had not only changed my name, but at my request she also sealed the court order, allowing me to skip out on a ton of debt I owed because of a failed home purchase and begin my new life as a woman. Instead of merging my file, two of the three credit bureaus issued me a brand new line of credit.

Walking away from fiction

It wasn’t until I came out against the sterilisation and mutilation of gender-con fused children and transgender military service members in 2017 that LGBT organisations stopped helping me. Most of the media retreated with them. Overnight, I went from being a liberal media darling to a conservative pariah.

Both groups quickly began to realise that the transgender community had a runaway on their hands. Their solution was to ignore me and what my story had become. They also stopped acknowledging that I was behind the non-binary option that now exists in 11 states.

The truth is that my sex change to non-binary was a medical and scientific fraud. Consider the fact that, before the historic court hearing occurred, my lawyer informed me that the judge had a transgender child.

Sure enough, the morning of my brief court hearing, the judge didn’t ask me a single question. Nor did this officer of the court demand to see any medical evidence alleging I was born with something magical. Within minutes, the judge just signed off on the court order.

I do not have any disorders of sexual development. All of my sexual confusion was in my head. I should have been treated. Instead, at every step, doctors, judges and advocacy groups indulged my fiction.

The carnage that came from my court victory is just as precedent setting as the decision itself. The judge’s order led to millions of taxpayer dollars being spent to put an “X” marker on driver’s licenses in 11 states so far. You can now become male, female or “non-binary” in all of them.

In my opinion, the judge in my case should have recused herself. In doing so, she would have spared me the ordeal still yet to come. She would also have saved me from having to bear the weight of the big secret behind my win. I now believe she wasn’t just validating my transgender identity. She was advancing her child’s transgender identity too.

A sensible magistrate would have politely told me “no” and refused to sign such an outlandish legal request. “Gender is just a concept. Biological sex defines all of us,” that person would have said.

In January 2019, unable to advance the fraud for another day, I reclaimed my male birth sex. The weight of the lie on my conscience was heavier than the value of the fame I’d gained from participating in this elaborate swindle.

Two fake gender identities couldn’t hide the truth of my biological reality. There is no third gender or no third sex. Like me, intersex people are either male or female. Their condition is a result of a disorder of sexual development, and they need help and compassion.

I played my part in pushing forward this grand illusion. I’m not the victim here. My wife, daughter, and the American public are – they are the real victims.
