TRANS HEALTH MANIFESTO

INTRODUCTION
Following the centuries-long repression of trans lives at the hands of the state, the next stage in the UK government’s war of bureaucratic attrition is the recent publication of an NHS consultation that fails in every possible capacity, and a survey that gathers less data than we’ve already presented them. We call upon everyone fighting for the health of trans people to boycott this consultation & the survey, and reject its procedures & results in full. We encourage hostile participation in the form of direct submissions of demands that don’t react to the questions posed or restrict themselves to the scope imposed by the government.

We wholly reject the NHS’s attempt to codify the abuse, torment & traumatisation of trans people under the guise of ‘healthcare’. We demand accountability for the historic & present abuse of power that the NHS has encouraged glorified psychiatrists to carry out. You do not own our bodies, you cannot control our lives, and you will not prevent our needs being met. We will not tolerate compromise.

The following living document is our vision for trans futures.

We do not consider that our work will ever be complete, there will always be greater things on the horizon. As such, this manifesto is not final, but an open draft which will evolve as we do. This is our call to action. We will fight anyone who stands in the way of universal liberation. This is war, and we will win.

Promo on the 60 Minutes Australia Facebook Page (since removed).

Australia’s 60 Minutes program failed to air a segment on a transgender teen Sunday night after advertising it all week. The promoted story featured a young man named Patrick Mitchell, who was administered estrogen tablets from the age of twelve by his mother, Ali Mitchell, after she obtained the prescriptions under false pretenses by claiming they were somehow needed for herself.

It is yet unclear whether a physician prescribed them or if she somehow ordered them online without a prescription. Also unclear is whether any blood tests were done to screen the boy for dangerous complications such as liver damage or blood clots. Either way, Ms. Mitchell claims she was justified in doing so and broke no laws. She administered the drugs based on the assessment of clinicians who had diagnosed her (then 12-year-old) son as transgender.  Now a feminized 14-year-old male teen with breasts, Patrick says he was misdiagnosed, and is seeking to reverse the changes.

“Just so you know I didn’t break the law. My son was suicidal. When seen by clinicians – and the wait for this was life threatening in itself to the point where I could not continue to work or leave him alone – he was diagnosed by them as transgender. When you won’t blink an eye at your son marrying a 6’4” broad shouldered bride with facial hair and an Adam’s apple … maybe – and only then – then comment on ‘what you would do’. It is illegal to prescribe hormones to an under 16 year old – not for these children to take them. It is the only way to manage the bone growth and soften features – like feet growing into size 15 feet – in such a child. This was not a quick decision. I wanted my child alive and positive about their life future – whether a boy or a girl that is ok too. I appreciate most comments – but like me you think this will never happen to you. Stay close to the ones you love – and let them know that it’s never too late to live your truth. The negative comments on social media are only more reason why living in Australia with diversity is stupidly difficult. Should we have continued on because we had alreadly done so much – or let him re enter life as a boy. These children can end their lives in an instant. It becomes a matter of life or death. When someone says NO to RUOK you take every professional advise available to you. You don’t self diagnose. No child would want this on a whim. It’s terribly REAL at the time. I don’t think anyone would wish anything but life and acceptance for all people – children included.”

– Ali Mitchell, commenting publicly on the since removed segment advertisement on 60 Minutes Australia’s Facebook page.

She went on to comment:

“I took every pathway to the letter. If we’d had quicker access to help and blockers things might have been different – but the society’s are overloaded and under resourced. We discussed and were guided in every step by the top in their field and those required to complete lengthy psychiatric assessments quite separately to any parent being of influence or ‘in the room’. I had never known anyone transgender till this happened in our world. Patrick hopes telling his story might help other kids who are distraught in this – nothing more. Best wishes, Ali.”

Women’s Day Australia is running a feature on the Mitchell’s story in their print edition this week. Excerpt:

Patrick Mitchell tells: “I transitioned into a girl… now I’m a boy again”

This Aussie schoolboy started growing breasts and transitioning into a girl at just 12 years old – before he realised he made a terrible mistake!

SEP 03, 2017 9:30PMBY MORGAN REARDON

In this exclusive interview and on the eve of his surgery to have his breasts removed, he tells Woman’s Day he has no regrets.

Looking at Patrick Mitchell now, you’d have no idea what an emotional rollercoaster he has been on since he made the decision to transition into a girl at 12 years old.

Now, just two years later, the high school student is about 
to have an operation to remove excess breast tissue in what will be the final stage of his extraordinary transition – back 
to being a boy.

“I was experiencing discomfort in my gender… 
but that’s no longer the case,” explains Patrick, who nevertheless has no regrets about the past two years.

This very unusual journey began when Patrick was just seven years old and visiting a friend’s house, and the topic of trans people came up.

“It was the first time I’d heard the phrase ‘trans’, and because I’d always identified with girls 
I thought, well, this makes sense, I probably am a girl,” he says.

“I was always more feminine and liked baking, gymnastics and fashion – my superhero name was Organza Man.”

Even so, it wasn’t until he was 12 years old and refused to return to school because of severe bullying that he discussed any of this with his family.

“When everyone went to sleep I’d stay up late researching trans people and potential surgeries that I could have to make me look more feminine,” he says.

“It was so hard to wake up every morning and see something new on my body, 
or that I’d grown. It was so depressing – I hated looking in the mirror. I didn’t know who the person staring back at me was.”

Seeing him struggling, mum Alison decided to home school Patrick and broached the subject of transgender with him.

“I’d seen a story on TV about transgender people,” says Alison.

“I said to Patrick, ‘I’m not saying this is you but I think we should speak to somebody about it.'”

“I hadn’t even finished the sentence and he had the biggest smile on his face – I hadn’t seen him smile for months.”

Shortly after, Patrick met with doctors who diagnosed him with gender dysphoria, a condition where a person experiences discomfort or distress because there’s a mismatch between their biological sex and gender identity.

As puberty approached, Patrick began transitioning to a woman.

In the beginning of 2017 however, Patrick started to have a change of heart when a female tutor referred to him as “one of the girls” during a lesson.

“I began to realise I was actually comfortable in my body. Every day I just felt better,” Patrick says.

 

60 Minutes Australia issued no announcement or explanation regarding their decision not to air the advertised segment. Hundreds of outraged viewers left complaints on the 60 Minutes Facebook page after they tuned in to watch and found the story was not aired as expected.

Viewers who emailed the show received the following comment:

“Dear [Viewer],

Thank you for your message. The story was due to air, however there were production issues that prevented us from screening the story on Sunday. We hope to be able to broadcast it in the next few weeks.

Kind Regards,

60 Minutes Team.”

60 Minutes response to emails.

 

Observers speculated that 60 Minutes pulled the segment over concerns that the broadcast would negatively affect the outcome of the September 12th national postal survey to be conducted on same sex marriage. Citizens will vote on whether the government should begin proceedings to legalize same sex marriage. The non-binding postal survey has been hotly contested by LGBT and right wing groups. Much of the opposition links gay marriage to the transgender children debate, presenting same sex marriage as the ‘slippery slope’ leading to the medicalization of gender in children.

The national same sex marriage vote itself is being challenged by LGBT advocates in Australia’s Supreme Court this week. They seek to overturn the vote on the grounds that the survey was not funded via the usual parliamentary process. They also contest whether the Australian Bureau of Statistics has the authority to administer the survey. Same sex marriage advocates would like the postal survey to be cancelled and for parliament to legalize gay marriage without a popular vote.

Either way, the national vote should be decided “in the next few weeks”, which aligns with the timeline presented by 60 minutes to run the program.

Earlier this year, ABC Australia enacted a last minute cancellation of the BBC documentary “Transgender Children: Who Knows Best?” after transgender activists lobbied for its censorship. The documentary presented alternate views of clinicians – some critical- on the practice of medically stunting the growth of reproductive organs in children who are gender non-conforming.

Petition started by New York composer Karl Michael Johnson

 

“Dear Board of Directors,

This past weekend, Amy Siskind published a tweet using the term “transgenders” to refer to people in the trans community, a term commonly regarded as a slur. She was gently asked to find another term by Shakina Nayfack, a trans actress and activist. The desired outcome was that Amy would acknowledge the error and correct it. Instead, she told Shakina to “get off her timeline” and blocked her on Twitter.

Moreover, when others joined the conversation, Amy indicated that the criticism was invalid and a waste of her time, and she blocked many people who escalated the issue by responding to other tweets in her timeline. Refusing to take the criticisms in stride, she doubled down, referring to her critics sarcastically as “geniuses” and likening their behavior to that of “alt-right trolls.”

We find it troubling and shameful that this is the behavior of someone with a prominent platform in the name of an organization that claims to be “a voice for all women.” Additionally, someone who decries President Trump’s tactics of demeaning his enemies and blocking communication with them should be expected, at the very least, to choose to interact differently with her critics than the very authoritarian figure she claims to rebuke.

We believe that the true enemies of the advancement of all women are not those at the top of government making obvious policy changes affecting women’s rights, but those taking on the role of allyship who, being in a position to be trusted and depended on, make it abundantly clear that their need to be correct is worth more than continuing to develop a coalition with the very people whose voices they claim to elevate. Amy Siskind has communicated to the trans community that she is unwilling to listen; and, in fact, is willing to reproduce President Trump’s authoritarian tactics in the service of silencing her critics.

We urge you to insist on a public, sincere apology from Amy Siskind to Shakina Nayfack and the many others who have lent their emotional resources to resolve this matter. If you don’t, you risk positioning The New Agenda as a trans-excluding feminist movement that will be held to account for claiming to be “a voice for all women”, which would be a travesty to all those who trust your organization to amplify their voices.

Sincerely,

The Undersigned

God this is good. Mancheeze critiques some YouTube dickhead’s video about how much he hates women and how women should pretend otherwise. I watched his video last week and it was as boring and offensive as you’d expect, but I could listen to Mancheeze go on forever. I nearly busted a gut laughing my ass off. She killed it. Five stars! True feminist entertainment.

Roxane Gay Hates Lesbians

August 16, 2017

It is 2017 and we still have man-loving liberal feminists like Roxane Gay troubling themselves over the Lavender Menace of Lesbianism. In her tweets she has advocated that a man should “slap” a lesbian for the crime of publicly stating her same-sex orientation because in Roxane Gay’s world, homosexuality is transphobic and lesbianism is a form of discrimination against male-bodied persons. Roxane Gay fancies her anti-lesbianism as a righteous new form of heteroqueer social justice, but what she is doing is nothing new. It’s the same old anti-lesbian hateful shit.

Rather than go on, I’ll simply say: Roxane Gay, FUCK YOU. God help any young lesbians who are subject to your homophobia in your position as a university professor, or any feminist students who are critical of gender.

For readers who want more context (and less profanity) I refer you to the thoughtful, generous, and kind response articulated by Claire at the award-winning Sister Outrider blog:

Dear Roxane – An Open Letter on Queer Feminism & Lesbophobia

https://sisteroutrider.wordpress.com/2017/08/15/dear-roxane/

A nut job San Francisco man named Daniel Davis posted video of himself creating an incident outside the women’s restroom at the Las Vegas NYNY hotel. Various media outlets are picking it up.

Dan is a man who has been taking estrogen pills for seven months after discovering his ladygender through porn consumption, strip clubs, and 4Chan. 

Contrary to his claim to the employee in the video that: “You are the only person who has this policy! Sweetheart I’ve been using the women’s room all over this city and you are the only ones in this fucking city…Dan posted 6 days ago about having security called on him in the women’s restroom at the MGM Grand.

Dan’s trail of bathroom incidents

In another post he complains that “It’s just been such a difficult struggle to be confronted in 50% of the bathrooms in this city I’ve used…“.

Mr. Davis, a heterosexual military man who calls himself “Katie”, or sometimes “Katie Charm“, posted a follow up video appealing to the fee-fees of the “entitled twits” and “bitches” which is what he calls women who are alarmed at his presence when they’re trying to change their tampons in peace.

There is absolutely no reason for sociopathic men like Dan to be permitted to go around frightening women in the women’s restrooms.

There is a restroom for males, Dan. Use it.

Jeremiah “Mya” Byrne. “TransDyke” Antifa at San Francisco Gay Pride 2017.

What is Antifa?

Well, the name Antifa is a bit of a misnomer. Antifa is short for “Anti-Fascist”, which is what the members of this subculture claim to be. Their stated objective is to fight totalitarianism, authoritarianism, and the forceful suppression of diversity and dissent.

In practice, Antifa is a group of people, mainly middle-class young white men, who show up to violently attack groups of right wingers, Trumpers, leftist free speech advocates, or anyone else they’ve decided must be silenced by intimidation and violent force. Some of them claim to be Communists, but they don’t do anything to organize support for labor or poor people.

What they do is show up for internet-organized flash mobs, all dressed in uniform black (“Black Bloc”) so they can’t be individually identified for their criminal actions, covering their faces with bandanas, armed with weighted sticks, bicycle locks, fireworks, and pepper spray. Then they batter and bash a bunch of people indiscriminately before going home to smoke pot and watch Netflix.

It’s like a non-consensual fight club for virtue-signaling trust-funders looking for violent thrills on the weekend. Like ‘Occupy Wall Street’ with less head lice, drums, (and commitment!) and more anonymity, fleeting destruction, and random battery. If you haven’t been following the Antifa trend, Google “Battle for Berkley” and watch one of the livestreams.

What is a “TransDyke”?

TransDykes are an offshoot of Antifa whose focus is on suppressing the speech of women, mainly lesbians. They participate in regular Antifa flashmobs, sometimes in pastel uniform (“Pastel Bloc”) but also target Women’s Rights events, and Lesbian spaces.

TransDykes are heterosexual men who identify as transwomen. They consider Lesbianism a form of fascism because female homosexuality excludes male-bodied persons. But any woman who publicly acknowledges the existence of biologically female human beings is their enemy, especially Feminists, who want to abolish, not celebrate, the sex stereotypes that transwomen identify with.

Scout Tran-Caffee founder of TransDyke

TransDykes were founded by Scout Tran-Caffee, a class-privileged heterosexual man who grew up in the Silicon Valley before obtaining a Masters Degree in Art in Chicago. After initially embarking on a career as a comic book artist, Scout decided he identified as a transwoman and relocated to the Bay Area, where he started a studio called “Scout’s Artillary” (get it?) where he began marketing trans-identified assault weaponry such as pink and blue baseball bats, axes, and sling shots. Since discovering his true mission, he still occasionally revisits his artistic past to post drunken stick figure comic strips on his Instagram account about the trauma of his thwarted desire to mace lesbians in gay bars.

Tran-Caffee had initially named his anti-lesbian anti-feminist activist group for heterosexual male transwomen “The Degenderettes” but it caused confusion and didn’t take. While intended as a saucy amalgamation celebrating “degenerate” plus “gender” it had the unfortunate implication of “de-gendering”, which is the opposite of the TransDyke mission. Without gender, there would be no transgender, and no basis for attacking lesbians for being gay!

The TransDyke Anti-Lesbian Antifa launched their first campaign against women at the San Francisco Women’s March on January 21, 2017 when they appeared as a  group of marching men twirling pink and blue baseball bats under a banner proclaiming “TransDykes Still Here”.

The TransDyke Antifa made their next appearance at the Berkley Milo Yiannopoulos Riot on February 1, 2017. They carried shields labeled “Trans Dykes Are Good And Pure”.

Next action by the TransDyke Antifa group was the San Francisco Women’s Strike March on March 7, 2017 in protest of the slogan “The Future Is Female”, which offended the males.  They marched under the banner “The Future Is Tire Fires”.

How offensive is this display at a Gay Pride celebration when an entire generation of gay men have died from a pandemic which was allowed to kill because the victims were expendable? How offensive is this at a gay pride event following the mass murder in Orlando? “Queers” Never Die??? The incredible tone-deafness. And what about the continual death mongering of the transgender movement celebrating suicide and transgender people who are killed each year by their partners or johns? WOW.

Then we have TransDyke Antifa member and Advocate writer Jeremiah “Mya” Byrne, formerly a folk singer of little notice, currently best known for his campaign against B52s singer Kate Pierson because the title of her song in favor of gender blending: ‘Mister Sister’ offended him, and his poetry about how he discovered his transwoman identity by masturbating in his sister’s stolen underwear. 

Jeremiah represented the TransDyke Antifa at the San Francisco Pride Parade by wearing a blood splattered T-shirt calling for violence against Lesbians- whom he calls “TERFS”, an acronym meaning Transwoman Excluding Radical Feminists and expressed as “terf” a substrate whose purpose is for male to walk on.

The deranged Mya Byrne, a heterosexual man, expresses his history as a violent batterer of women, a man who punches women, and goes on to claim that heterosexual male violence against women is an expression of “Gay Pride”. Don’t believe me? Here it is:

Violence against Women is the Straight Male version of “Pride” says batterer Jeremiah Byrne.

TransDyke Antifa:
1. Violent threatening Intent against Lesbians
2. Wearing Face Mask
3. Tried to enter with weapon (weighted stick).

 

Be aware. There’s a crazy-ass woman-hating subculture of straight men who identify as transwomen and they call themselves TransDykes or Pastel Bloc. They are violent men and you are their number one enemy.
