The Cult language of Gender Fundamentalist Trans Youth Family Allies:
Kim Pearson is Executive Director and Founding Member of TransYouth Family Allies, “the only national organization dedicated exclusively to education and advocacy for gender variant and transgender children and youth.” TYFA is a tax free non-profit organization devoted to lobbying for and promoting the medical/surgical “correction” (or as they put it, the“affirmation”) of gender-noncompliant youths. This means they advocate chemical castration of pre-teens followed by surgical sterilization. In the first year (2007) Pearson claims they “affirmed” 15 children, but as of May 2010 were “affirming” 150-180 children annually.
Kim Pearson: “I think this is pretty much the tip of the iceburg, I think for probably every ten kids that come to us- ten families that come to us- there are maybe a hundred that don’t- that aren’t seeking the answers or aren’t supporting their children. So I think we’re only going to see this grow and grow and grow as people become more aware.”
When TYFA says “Keep your gender variant child IN T.A.C.T.”, they actually mean chemically castrate them and surgically sterilize them, then force them into lifetime drug dependence. Not “Intact” AT ALL.
We already know CONCLUSIVELY that the majority of these kids would turn out gay/lesbian without this corrective “treatment”. So why do this to kids? Perhaps a look at the Board of Trustees will be illuminating…
The board members and advisors of this tax-free transgender pediatric lobbying agency are a very interesting group – including Director Andrea James, who famously posted pictures of author J.Michael Bailey’s elementary school aged children online with pornographic captions superimposed, Andrea disgustingly and illegally captioned the purloined photo of Bailey’s prepubertal minor daughter: “cock-starved exhibitionist.” and Johanna Olson MD, of Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles which has “treated” over 500 children with gender-nonconformity and who presents workshops called “Toddlers to Teens: Comprehensive Health Care For Your Transgender Child” (and no, health care does not refer to illness, these are healthy kids being “treated” for sex role incongruence. Healthy toddlers being put on the path to medically recommended sterilization and a lifetime dependence on drugs. At least recommended by Dr. Olson, one of the few MDs condoning such practices.) The text from one of Dr. Olson’s promotional blurbs: “Early intervention with proper medical care and mental health care, can greatly increase the success of a child’s transition. While medical and mental health expertise for transgender children are currently a rare phenomena, this workshop will vigorously address this deficiency and empower participants to find the proper care for their child. Session I will focus on initial evaluation of the child, counseling child and family, social transition and the medical screening of younger children“. Treating transgender TODDLERS. Rigggght. Reminds me of the guy who beat a 17 month old to death for not acting “manly” enough.
Quite a few other interesting Board members and Advisors- I’ll post them all in comments.
TYFA anti-discrimination policy:
Hello. What’s missing from this non-discrimination policy that’s included on every such policy in the known universe? Sex. Freaking sex discrimination. TYFA reserves the right to discriminate on the basis of physical sex. Go figure.
If you’re a parent of a child insisting he’s a girl or she’s a boy, RUN RUN RUN from these people! Don’t sterilize your kids and place them on a lifetime regime of drugs! Love them and support them to be the person they grow up to be, even if that person breaks all the lame rules of “gender” in our society! Give them the skills they may need to cope with being different!

Chrissy Lee Polis was not attacked for using a restroom. A teenaged girl (who assumed Chrissy was female) started a fight with Chrissy for “talking to her man”. Chrissy had already used the restroom without incident when the confrontation occurred. There was no bathroom incident and the confrontation had nothing to do with bathroom usage and did not occur inside, or relating in any way, to the bathroom. Chrissy was treated exactly the same as a female because the teens assaulting him thought he was female. He was beaten “as a woman” by a woman who accused “her” of talking “to my man”. That’s why the teens called him “she”, “her” and “bitch” on the tape. According to Chrissy he was attacked as a woman by a teenaged girl for talking to her man.
A female McDonald’s employee broke up the fight but the teen returned and when Chrissy defended himself and ripped out the girl’s weave and put the teen in a chokehold the girl’s friend got involved and the beatdown accelerated. Nothing to do with a bathroom. This “beatdown” video, like hundreds (thousands?) of others was posted online. Go to YouTube and search “beatdown” or even “McDonald’s Beatdown” and you will see what I mean. There are hundreds of them. Public violence filmed on cellphones is a huge infotainment trend.
The confusion seems to stem from the fact that Vernon Hackett, the dickwad who filmed the skirmish, a McDonalds employee, knew Chrissy was transgender and said on the recording Yo that’s a man, not a woman. And when he uploaded the video on YouTube and linked to it on his facebook page (what a shit fuck) he was apparently confronted about his ethics and tried to “defend” his actions by stating that Chrissy was a man, not a woman, a crossdresser, not a transgender (as if crossdressers aren’t the biggest category of transgender!), had not had SRS and had a penis and testicles, not an acceptable neo-surgi-hole, and that the incident was over bathroom usage. None of which was true according to Chrissy.
Chrissy was regarded as female by the police and the Baltimore Press, and his transgender status was never mentioned in the initial reporting of this incident. The fact that Chrissy was treated as female was very confusing to transgenders.
Chrissy was outed as being male by the website of “sex worker” and pornographer BrittanyTS (BrittanyTS.com- NSFW) which was then picked up by Bilerco, who outed Chrissy as male to the wider media. “This is absolutely disgusting. After an unidentified transwoman tried to use the bathroom at a Baltimore McDonald’s, two patrons started attacking her in full view of other customers and employees” they erroneously reported. Then The Smoking Gun outed Chrissy as Chris and posted his criminal history of prostitution and public disturbance (resulting from a complaint of assault against a woman). Bilerco outed Chrissy because they believed at face value the facebook posts by the amateur videographer that Chrissy was a male crossdresser with male tackle who was confronted in a bathroom incident and they thought use of Chrissy as a figurehead for the transgender bathroom meme of “women being horrible oppressive abusers to men” would be helpful to the transgender agenda regardless of Chrissy’s wish not to be publicly outed or placed in such a public role. Facts couldn’t stand in the way of their agenda.
“She was beaten for trying to use public accommodations by people who thought she had no right to do so, Cathy. And bystanders laughed – you can hear that on the video – because they thought she had no right to do so either. That you ignore that obvious fact and try de-railing says a lot about your wilful blindness on this issue. Zoe Brain | April 22, 2011 11:10 PM”
Dozens of posts and thousands of comments ensued from transgenders filled with self-righteous rage about the inhumanity of woman to men. And hundreds of incredibly racist comments about the female teens. An eruption, as it were from male transgenders towards females and blacks and especially black females. There were so many racist comments on various trans sites that Bilerco wrote a post to address them.
“this is why black people are all scum and white people have class an decency. f****ing black animals.”
“Haven’t we reached a point in this country where it is entirely okay to knock a bitch out if she’s on the verge of killing someone? Negroetta easily had 60 pounds and a sidekick on the trans woman.”
“This has nothing to do with race, it is transphobia. They are transphobic, horrible bitches.”
But come to find out Chrissy wasn’t playing. Rather than playing victim he made a video statement about how he was attacked as a female talking to another female’s man. And how he was fine except for a bruise on his knee and a faint facial bruise and the stretching of his earlobe piercings which now caused his heavy earrings to fall out. He was most upset about his privacy being invaded and his governments being dredged up online. Chrissy wasn’t following the script at all but was telling the truth. Chrissy was not dumb enough to follow the advice of privileged middle-aged males who wanted and needed to make him into a victim martyr for the idea that females violently oppressed him by treating him as female. Chrissy was used to passing as female and being treated as female and didn’t have the male sense of outrage over the female treatment he received from the teenage girls who gave him the beatdown. Chrissy wasn’t playing and faking a head injury and making up a violent bathroom attack the way the transphobic McDonald’s employee filmographer and the transphobic outing transgenders at Bilerco wanted to believe. Chrissy said it was NOT a fight over a bathroom, was NOT a fight over being transgender, but rather over a presumed female talking to the teen’s “man”. Because Chrissy wasn’t a liar, and had some pride. Unlike the haters and Bilerco posters. And misogynist transphobic Pams House Blend blogger Autumn Sandeen too, who called for a national campaign against female bathrooms to be called “the Chrissy Lee Polis Bill”. Nevermind the fact that the fight had NOTHING AT ALL TO DO WITH BATHROOMS, or even being transgender. Never let a good story get in the way of the truth.
Over and over the trans decried the way McDonald’s employees were all transphobes who did nothing to stop the fight, despite the fact that a black male employee is clearly seen on film physically breaking up the fight when it first occurred, and another black male attempting several times to put himself physically between the combatants after that. They only saw the white woman stepping in, and hailed her as a hero. Which maybe she was. Same as the black employees who put themselves in the middle. But not to the transjacktivists. The black defenders were invisible.
The trans wanted a figurehead for their meme that females are brutal oppressors of males but what they really protest is a MTF being treated as female. There are no cases of female violence against trans, even in bathrooms. The only violent trans bathroom incident I’m aware of involving male transgenders is the one in New York years ago when a woman told a male crossdresser to leave the ladies room and he punched her in the face and knocked out five of her front teeth and went to jail for it. He’d had a long violent felony history prior to that event.
So Chrissy wasn’t used to lying and pretending and playing victim like fake-ass upper class trans activists who wanted to use him and lie about his experience of being treated like shit: like female. He was drunk, he went to McDonalds to use the bathroom, he exchanged witty repartee with fellow customers on the way -one of whom apparently had a jealous girlfriend, he used the bathroom without incident and then got attacked on the way out of the restaurant by a female who took umbrage to another female talking to “her man”. Trans-activists are desperate for any example of how females are tormenting them for being male. But Chrissy aint playin. He took his experience as one encountered by females, which is how he presented, and viewed himself. Hard for many transactivists to understand.
A “protest” was held last night across from the McDonalds by transjacktivists and a few members of Chrissy’s family showed. But Chrissy didn’t. Chrissy just wanted to live his fucking life, and is too smart to get pimped into some bullshit. LEAVE CHRISSY ALONE ! If you really give a shit just send money, don’t try to use a person. Cause Chrissy aint playin.

Meghan Murphy has published a wonderful podcast titled “Where have all the Radicals gone? When feminism gets moderate.” She addresses the current backlash against feminism, “funfeminism”, “sexpoz”, the re-writing and misquoting of radical feminist thinkers, the future of women’s liberation, and so much more. The highlight for me was the brand spanking new interview with the brilliant Sheila Jeffreys, which was conducted on April 10, 2011. Do give a listen. Highly recommended.
A brief excerpt from Sheila Jeffreys addressing the McCarthyism of Transgender and the Sterilization of Transgender Children is transcribed below.
“Radical feminist theory was and is particularly revolutionary because it means a total transformation of male domination. So it means the removal of it at its most basic level. It means the total transformation of culture. It means for instance no respect for culture. And I’ve been writing recently about multiculturalism because my new book is on religion, called “Man’s Dominion: the Rise of Religion and the Eclipse of Women’s Rights” (which is coming out later this year). So I’ve been writing about how multiculturalism becomes multi-faithism and how there’s this requirement in multicultural society is to respect culture- which is of course completely impossible since all cultures are based upon the subordination of women and the creation of two different sexes and two different genders and the construction of oppression out of that. And that- if you walk in any street, just look at the way people are dressed , if you look at anything that’s going on on the television, the extraordinary length to which the expression of women’s subordination and men’s domination go is immediately clear to you and that’s in major cities of the western world that I’m talking about. So of course the radical feminist critique is about overthrowing that deep, deeply cultural construction of women’s subordination. Its perhaps clearest on an everyday level, in what women are required to wear. The showing of their bodies: the short skirts, the shaved legs, the high-heeled shoes. The extraordinary lengths to which they have to go to punish and be cruel to their own bodies and be degraded in public places.
Now that’s very very clearly about male domination as far as I can see. But it cannot be recognized. It simply cannot be recognized. So that, there’s a tremendous forgetfulness of the construction of what is these days is called “gender”. Of course I would call it “sexual oppression” I think is that is probably a more reasonable way of looking at it. And its strongest manifestation of course takes place in what’s called “transgenderism” which is a practice in which persons who do not adhere to the correctly gendered practices that have been placed upon the biological sex are considered to have something called Gender Identity Disorder and they’re expected to cross over into the other sex. Not criticize the gendered system as it exists, because that’s unthinkable but to make some kind of “journey” by mutilating their bodies and taking dangerous drugs for the rest of their lives in order to supposedly represent the opposite sex.
Now that shows to us how clearly, and to what an extraordinary depth the idea that there are two genders, with different behaviors, constructed from how different we are biologically has entered culture. Because of course,it doesn’t make sense. I mean, I don’t have a gender. I’ve no intention of having a gender. I don’t do masculinity which is the behavior of male dominance, and I don’t do femininity which is the behavior of female subordination, women’s subordination. I hope to engage in human behavior and I hope at some point in the future everybody will be able to do that too, but gender I definitely do not have. I am a conscientious objector to gender as I would be indeed to being drafted into the military – and I see these things as having some connections (laughs).
So, the problem with transgenderism – which is obviously an expression of men’s sexual rights as well of course( it’s very much about the right to be sexually excited by female clothing, and subordination and so on). But it also comes out of the gendered system. And it means that in order to support transgenderism , gender has to be supported. So the subordination of women has to be supported in order for transgenderism to be supported. Transgender as a phenomenon is the clearest possible indication of the strength of the structures of the male domination going on right now. Of course we know that in Iran homosexuals are routinely transgendered because they’re not allowed to be homosexuals.
I’ve been looking at the stuff on transgendered kids in the U.S. There are lots of organizations now to support transgendered kids and their families. There’s lots of clinics and therapists, who can identify “transgender kids”. And they’re being recognized as transgender from four or five years old even though the literature tells us, and they tell us themselves, that 70% of those recognized as transgendered will end up as homosexual in later life. So one of the things they are trying to do is eradicate homosexuality at it’s very possible origin, (or they’ll profer a connection necessarily between homosexuality and gender) but they’re maybe being bullied for having the wrong kind of behaviors and so on. So what’s happening in the states is that children are now to be identified in school, to be identified by their parents. This is what we – you know in the seventies we fought against the idea that there were “correct” forms of behavior, “correct” toys and so on for children. It wasn’t radical to do so, that was quite mild I thought. Now these children are being put on programs, where- and this is the big demand now- they have drugs to prevent them, hormones to prevent them from developing the body of their biological sex. So they’ve got to be on these hormones for about nine years – you can see how the medical profession loves this: the drugs, the medical expertise and so on, it’s a very big money maker for them. And very conservative that they even believe in gender. So these poor children are not going through puberty in the normal way, they’re not having the ordinary biological changes. Then by sixteen they’ll be put on the cross-gender hormones of the opposite sex which will make them sterile. So they’re actually being sterilized. It’s the sterilization of the “un-fit”. When it happened in the thirties and the Nazis did it , you know it’s now considered that was unacceptable to do it: it went on until the sixties, in America, the sterilization of the disabled , the unfit. It’s happening now. Those who do not conform to correct gender stereotypes are being sterilized and they’re being sterilized as children. At eighteen years old they’re expected to move on to surgery, so parts of their bodies are going to be lopped off. And then they’ll be on these drugs for the rest of their lives.
Eventually I’m sure, within – because things are moving fast and there’s a lot of criticism of this particularly by young radical feminists now- within the next ten, twenty years it will come to be realized as a horrendous human rights violation. But for these children and young people who have been sterilized, this is a terrible, terrible cost. Because they’ve lost parts of their bodies, they’ve lost the ability to reproduce. It really is a human rights violation on a massive, massive scale.
Now, because I criticize this, I am sort of “no platformed” pretty much, by lots of feminist , lesbian and gay organizations who will not allow me to speak. Even in my own city I was not allowed to be invited to speak at the Reclaim The Night because I was seen as “transphobic”. A major conference in Britain that invited me to speak this year is basically not going to happen because some others said that I was transphobic and shouldn’t speak and everything collapsed and so on. The kind of McCarthyism that’s going on around transgenderism now – if you criticize it , or if somebody who is your friend knows you and you’re known as a “transphobe”, they also are now getting told they cannot speak. So it’s spreading out, and it’s spreading out . The National Union of Students in Britain , their Lesbian and Gay Bisexual Transgender Conference , the agenda I’ve just been looking at actually has a resolution saying that Julie Bindel- who’s also a feminist critic of this practice in Britain and a journalist “is vile”. (laughs) That’s all it says: “Julie Bindel Is Vile”. This is a resolution of the National Union of Students Conference. And of course she is no-platformed, no students organizations may invite her to speak anywhere because she’s also critical of transgenderism.
So really, gender is of course the sort of last bastion because it is the foundation of the subordination of women. And it’s being defended to the death in this extraordinarily grim way. Which means that any radical feminist critics must not be allowed to speak. A reading group that discussed my book and said online that they’ve done so has been told that they were transphobic and that they should not be allowed to discuss my book, so it is an attempt to eliminate, expatriate, from the public discussion and the public forum, any discussion, writing and so on that could possibly criticize gender. Because that’s what it’s about, really. It’s criticizing gender. And that’s the very foundation of feminism and we really have to hold onto that. We’ve got to claw back the ground now. And I’m very pleased to say that there are quite a lot of radical feminist blogs that are not only being very critical of transgenderism, but even dare I say it, laughing at it. Which is a very very naughty thing to do. But sometimes the oppressed and the subordinate have to laugh at the dominant ideology that oppress them.
This is a tiny excerpt from a long and brilliant podcast that is worth every moment of your time. Thank you so much to Meghan Murphy for creating it. ❤

College student Galia Slayen created this Life-Sized Barbie as a visual aid for her activism educating the public about eating disorders in young women. The figure stands almost six feet tall and has measurements of 39″ bust, 18″ waist, and 33″ hips.
From BarbieFest: “Barbie is wearing the actual skirt that Galia Slayen wore when she was a sized-zero cheerleader because Galia wanted to show the world some of the pain she felt as a result of her own struggle with eating disorders and the pressure to look perfect that she felt as a cheerleader.”
From her HuffPo article: “Barbie would have a BMI of 16.24 and fit the weight criteria for anorexia. She likely would not menstruate. If Barbie was a real woman, she’d have to walk on all fours due to her proportions. Slumber Party Barbie was introduced in 1965 and came with a bathroom scale permanently set at 110 lbs with a book entitled “How to Lose Weight” with directions inside stating simply “Don’t eat.”
Quick follow-up on this Post: Transgender: Time to Change
Fundamentalist sex-role essentialists have been successful in efforts to prevent Lesbian and Gay Psychiatrists from meeting to discuss treatment of sex roles in their field. Transgender lobbyists claim that lesbians and gays have no right to discuss increasing medical sterilization of children who fail to conform to traditional sex roles. They also maintain feminists have no right to publicly discuss sex roles, as such discussion offends their belief in the essential nature of sex roles.
Christian Conservatives, Muslim Fundamentalists, Orthodox Jews, Transgenderists and other right wing groups believe sex roles are innate to one’s physical sex. In many cases these groups demand sex role incongruence be “corrected” with drugs and surgical “treatment”, altering the appearance of physical sex to protect the status quo. This extends to children as young as eight years old whom gender essentialists advocate treating with drugs to prevent sexual maturity in expectation of surgical sterilization. Most of the children being “treated” for sex role incongruence are lesbian and gay.
RCP sponsors of the Lesbian and Gay conference announced today that the conference was being cancelled due to poor ticket sales leading up to the May 20th event following weeks of complaints from sex-role fundamentalists that the conference, which featured sex-role critique was offensive to their beliefs.
Prior to the cancellation Charing Cross Hospital, which runs the largest “Gender Clinic” in the UK (and claims to “treat” individuals suffering from sex role dysphoria – distress associated with a mismatch between psychological sex role and natally assigned sex) publicly withdrew it’s support from the Lesbian and Gay group when it realized that the event may include some critique of the sex roles they claim to treat.
The RCP is to be complimented for attempting to arrange a conference critical of the sex-roles held so dearly by gender fundamentalists and also for bravely addressing the practices of many of their professional colleagues in promoting sex role compliance.
Gender believers may have bullied yet another Gay and Lesbian group into keeping their sex-role conversations private but they cannot and will not stem the increasing tide of awareness of how such sex-role fundamentalism is harmful to women, to gays and lesbians, and to children.
