Footage of Trans activist attorney Sean “Shon” Faye libeling Canadian sexologist Kenneth Zucker with fabricated and unsubstantiated claims of abuse of minors. Clip has been removed from BBC website pending litigation.

Many readers will remember Sean Faye as the Guardian’s colorful, circa 2014 ‘Man who loves make-up’ columnist.

Sean has recently caught the Gender Identity bug and now claims that mammalian sexual dimorphic reproductive function causes distinct psychological profiles in humans (Man brains and Woman brains) and maintains he is psychologically female. Therefor his love of cosmetics now makes him “a woman”. He has adopted a feminized version of his name “Shon”, which is pronounced the same. *

Bonus points: Mr. Faye cites as fact: a 48% pediatric transgender suicide attempt rate based on self-report of an online survey of 27 individuals.

Faye claims he “works with a lot of transgender children” as a layperson activist provider.

Censurado!

A Transgender Children’s advocacy campaign titled “There are girls with penises and boys with vulvas!” which features imagery of naked children’s genitalia was censored by Facebook, the group complained.

From El Pais:

“A new public awareness campaign by the Basque advocacy group Chrysallis Euskal Herria, an association of families with transgender children, has hit the bus shelters and subway stations of the Basque Country and Navarre, in northern Spain.

The campaign was funded by an anonymous donor from New York with Basque family roots, who donated €28,000 in exchange for assurances that his or her identity would remain under wraps, the association said.

The 150 posters distributed across mass transit networks show drawings of four nude children holding hands: a boy and a girl with vulvas, and another boy and girl with penises. The goal is “to raise social awareness about transgender children and for these children to feel represented,” explains Beatriz Sever, the group’s press officer.

 The campaign, which is targeting the cities of Pamplona, Vitoria, San Sebastián and Bilbao, was launched on Tuesday and will end on January 16.

“There is an evident gap in society’s ability to approach the issue of transgender children in a normal way,” said Sever in a telephone conversation. “The more we talk, the easier it will be for some parents to detect what is happening to their own children. Many of them deny their kids’ real identity simply out of ignorance.”

The association was formed in 2013 by eight Basque families with transgender children ages three through 17. Since then, their number has grown to 40.

 Facebook followed its usual policy of censoring the image because the children are depicted in the nude.

“We did not fight the decision because we were afraid that our page would be shut down. On one hand, it’s given us even more visibility, but then we were not looking for something like this to happen, because it draws attention away from our main message,” said the association representative.

Sever said it was essential to have this explicit depiction of genitals on the posters.

“It makes all the difference between children either being accepted or not. We need to make people understand that nature is not a photocopying machine. Those who deny their identity typically use genitals as an excuse. I myself, as a mother, once used that same argument, until I finally understood what was going on,” she reveals.

Another goal of the campaign is to ensure unconditional support for transgender children from their immediate circle of friends and family, and to prevent rejection.

This is “a life-and-death matter,” notes Sever. According to a 2011 survey of transgender adults by the United States National Transgender Equality Association, 41% of respondents reported attempting suicide compared to 1.6% of the general population.

Mysterious sponsor

The campaign was made possible thanks to the enormous repercussion of an earlier drive to raise awareness about transgender children. That campaign, carried out in April 2016, handed out educational material in eight different languages.

That earlier effort reached the ears of a New York financier with Basque roots, who got in touch with Chrysallis Euskal Herria and offered to put up the €28,000 required to put together this latest awareness drive.

The association expressed its gratitude to the sponsor, and said it will ask the Basque regional government to create a specific department to assist the families of transgender children.”

“The campaign never infringed any rule of Facebook!” the group claimed on its Facebook page, where they re-posted the uncensored image earlier today in defiance of the ban.

“Even in these major metropolitan areas such as Los Angeles, San Fransciso, Boston, Chicago, and to a certain extent New York, where there are trans services available for young people, we are not seeing trans youth of color in the blocker age group. So the younger kids (I’m talking about in the 8 to 14-year-old age range) we are seeing a disproportionate number of caucasian patients coming in, and the huge lack of- certainly not representative at all of the diversity of those cities.  And I think it’s not just limited to Black and Latino families that we’re not seeing but it’s also Asian, Pacific Islander, Native American. All kinds of- we’re just not seeing the diversity represented. So for example, in my cohort of young people who are on blockers, which is probably 70 or 75 kids, we have about three African American patients and every single one of them is adopted by white parents.

We have about 14% of our kids that are of Latino origin, they are not adopted so they are coming from their primary families of origin, but that’s still massively un-proportional compared to- disproportionate compared to there being 50% of Los Angeles being Latino in heritage and ethnicity. So something’s happening where we’re not able to reach into communities of color and provide information and accesses to resources for those families.

And let me tell you why I think it’s so critical. It’s not news that people that are at the highest risk for violence and death are trans women of color. And what makes them at risk? What makes them at risk is being identifiably trans. The opportunity to be blocked and not be identifiably trans- it’s a conundrum, right? Because I don’t have a desire to eradicate trans identities? But I do have a desire to keep people safe and protected and if having the gift of selective disclosure does that, then I want to be able to give that gift to people. But we’re not able to do that right now. There are many, many, barriers to access, some of which we understand and some which we have no idea about.”

Years of child welfare reports were ignored by social services out of fear of appearing “transphobic” towards a child whose mother claimed he was transgender, charged UK Family Court Judge Mr. Justice Hayden as he transferred custody of the seven-year-old boy to his father.

The boy’s mother, a former psychiatric nurse with a history of unspecified mental illness, decided that her child was transgender when he was four years of age. From the age of four she attempted to make the boy live “stealth” – a transgender term meaning to hide one’s biological sex completely. She enrolled the child into a new school as a female child (before later withdrawing him), reported neighborhood children as committing anti-transgender hate crimes, and even registered him with a new physician as a female patient.

From the age of four to six, a whopping: Two schools, his family physician, the local housing authority, the NPSCC, the local police, and several members of the community- including neighbors and concerned onlookers- all filed reports with the local child protection service (which cannot be named by court order) requesting investigation into the boy’s welfare, citing erratic behavior by his mother, his unkempt status, his increasing isolation including his total removal from the educational system, removal from medical services, refusal of letting the boy play with neighborhood children, and refusal of visitation with relatives including his father.

Not only were child welfare reports dismissed, but the social service agency began, solely on authority of his mother – officially referring to the male child – who had never been assessed or diagnosed or observed as having any gender issues- as female from the age of four onward.

Rather than publishing hand-picked excerpts of the Judge’s Order (You folks know GenderTrender is not a 101 site for these issues), I encourage you to read it for yourself and draw your own conclusions. Here it is:

Anti-gay, pro-“transgender children” lobby the non-profit MermaidsUK (which is dual funded by the NHS and pharmaceutical companies) issued a statement: “Mermaids have supported this family for over two years. This is a huge injustice and transphobic practice. Devastating for the child”. The anti-feminist and homophobic MermaidsUK (@Mermaids_Gender)  organization defines non-transgender people as those who are “happy with gender and fancies opposite sex”.

MermaidsUK representative Fisher Fox (@thefoxfisher), who considers herself a testosterone-injecting ex-lesbian and attempts to reject her sex and lesbianism by “identifying as” a heterosexual male (because she believes homosexuality is “a deviant sort of thing”) started a Change petition against the Judge’s order:

“So how is it possible to say that the mother was somehow imposing this on her child? Can we all in fact be doing this, we parents of transgender children, imposing this choice on our children?” asks MermaidsUK founder Sue Green, in the comments. She flew her gay son to Thailand at the age of 16 to have his penis surgically removed, before the practice was outlawed.
