From my new column in Taki’s Magazine:

THE UNTOLD STORY
The Truth About Pervs
Steve Sailer

June 22, 2022

In perhaps the biggest setback yet suffered by the transgenderist juggernaut, the International Swimming Federation has sunk the Olympic gold dreams of Will “Lia” Thomas, the also-ran male swimmer who declared himself a woman and won an NCAA championship. In a shocking spasm of sanity, the ruling body declared that ex-men who had gone through male puberty (from age 12 onward) are ineligible to enter women’s events because of the permanent advantages in size and strength they have gained.

It’s hard to lose when you have as much of an ideological tailwind at your back as Thomas has had, but his compulsion to crush his enemies and see them driven before him—and to hear the lamentation of the women he beat—made him a remarkably unsympathetic standard-bearer.

And yet, Thomas’ toxic masculinity is not unusual among the better-known transgenders. An extraordinary fraction of the most prominent and influential male-to-female transgenders are, when you stop and think about them, obvious examples of male ego, aggression, and self-assertion run amok. …

The right tends to assume that the only possible causes for transgenderism could be leftism and a lack of masculinity, so they are unable to notice that many of the best-known M-to-Fs are excessively masculine and right of center politically.

The left assumes that Lia Thomas and Zoey Tur must be oppressed victims of The Patriarchy, making them incapable of grasping how many famous transgenders are selfish bullies.

Read the whole thing there.

  1. The right tends to assume that the only possible causes for transgenderism could be leftism and a lack of masculinity, so they are unable to notice that many of the best-known M-to-Fs are excessively masculine and right of center politically.

    Many on the right would simply assert it is caused by mental illness; some might still state that publicly, despite the risk of cancellation.

  4. “autogynephilia in which at puberty, a normally masculine boy begins dressing up in his mother’s lingerie and masturbating in front of the mirror, imagining himself as the beautiful girl he desires”

    Is this actually what happens, the trigger for late transition? I’ve not read the literature. My impression is more that it starts in midlife, when perhaps sex with the wife isn’t what it was, but I may well be wrong.

    A 16 year old boy at my school, clever and a talented guitarist – an alpha type and popular with girls – once asked a group of us “haven’t you ever dressed up in your mum’s stockings and pants?“. Not heard of him for years, but I think I’d better look him up and see what his current gender is.

    Here’s a classic masculine late-onset M to F – the boxing promoter Frank Maloney, who became Kellie in 2014 after 2 marriages and 3 daughters.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kellie_Maloney

    On 14 September 2009 Maloney suffered a heart attack while watching John McDermott lose a contentious decision to Tyson Fury; significant heart damage was discovered when Maloney was admitted to hospital with shock after finding the body of client Darren Sutherland following his suicide. It was reported that Maloney was not welcome at Sutherland’s funeral service, although reports circulated that her wife, Tracey, and mother, Maureen, attended. Some of the evidence heard in the inquest into Sutherland’s death was critical of Maloney, who Sutherland was said to be frightened of.

  5. @BB753

    My impression from knowing one extremely effeminate little boy is that early onset male gender dysphorics aren’t likely to be attracted by the idea of becoming Megan Rapinoe and training relentlessly to crush female foes on the playing field. That’s much to butch for them. They’d rather be Arianna Grande.

    But who knows what could be in store for us next?

Anyway, he should be respected for leaving us this mostly improvised comedic masterpiece, from Paul Morrissey’s (yeah, Andy gets credit) Trash.

    If you are not familiar with the plot, it’s the end of the film, it’s been a long ordeal, 60s hippy degenerate, neerdowell, heroin addicts Holly and Joe plot to scam their way onto NYC welfare by claiming that Holly is pregnant. They crash head-on into an officious, closeted, Jewish (and you know that he is Jewish) social worker. Farce ensues.

    What these dudes need is a good ass-kicking. Unfortunately, our society has decided that all such violence is now undesirable and can never be justified, plus these guys now get to absurdly hide behind the notion of “don’t hit women”.

    I don’t think there would be legal or propaganda consequences if an actual woman tried to beat one of these dudes up, but that’s obviously never going to happen for ontological reasons.

    Nonetheless great article, Steve, and very refreshing to read a complaint about men pretending to be women that doesn’t concede the premise up front and refer to them as “she”.

    Yeah, but just don’t do it right in front of aggressive manly ex-men as Ben Shapiro did in this video*. Go to 01:50 if you don’t want to hear even a little bit of this stupidity out of the talking shrieking heads first. At that point this supposed female person, with perhaps twice the muscle mass Ben Shapiro has, threatened him with violence on the air. (Nope, no problem with that from the other half dozen people there, either.)

    See, Mr. Tur feels Mr. Shapiro’s words about chromosomes and such are fighting words. The ctrl-left will define all kinds of speech into fighting words. That’s a way to eliminate free speech.

So even in this, ex-men are using feminine trappings in pursuit of a masculine goal?

  18. I agree that was a very good column there on TakiMag. In the way of the great commentator and force for the good of real Conservatism, Michelle Malkin, you bring up specific people who are being greatly harmed by the lies of (yes) the ctrl-left. That would be the young girls that are lied to and convinced to do great harm to their selves and their futures as women. (I assume there are some boys with the opposite deal going but not as many?) I hope you will stay on this issue like a bulldog.

    You come off all fair and balanced about the right not understanding this, as they don’t realize that the ex-men are big, often very successful, men, not so much effeminate guys that have always liked dolls and dresses. As the Tur daughter wrote among her mostly other BS, this transition deally is a get-out-of-jail-free card for these men. We’re not supposed to feel sorry for them and we’re supposed to support them, no matter who they were, who they really are, and who they threaten with bodily harm.

    However, whether the right understands the details or not (me, I don’t want to know about it), no, the left is to blame. They are ruining the country, one piece of traditional society at a time. Let me put it the way I did in the latest Peak Stupidity post titled “That’s a man, baby!”:

    Yes, there are the occasional weirdos.** I would think they’d just accept that they are weirdos, as they did in the past, I’d be nice if people on TV shows, and now kids’ teachers in government schools, could still admit that these people are weirdos, or, failing that, at least not teach our kids that they must agree they aren’t weirdos.

  20. I have one nit to pick about the article. It’s a small one. Mr. Thomas was not a ‘loser” as a male swimmer. He was ranked 50th in the country or so in the 500 freestyle. That’s a borderline Olympic Trials qualifier. I know that doesn’t sound like much to people who just watch the Olympics every four years, but that’s a very serious and highly successful swimmer. Which makes his little stunt even worse, imo. That piece of shit KNOWs the effort the actual females have put in to their swimming. Decades of 6:00 AM practices. Sacrifice. Pain. And he shit all over them. I look forward to the day when he is found dead in a hotel room with a tranny hooker and a needle in his arm.

    I know that it’s considered terminal naziness to prefer intelligence and beauty to stupidity and ugliness, but am I the only one to notice how much more we have of the latter two nowadays? And that the overpopulated horror show which is post-modern society is very much a product of that?

  32. Mike Tre says:

    First off, this is a very good article. Thank you. But, because I am me, I have a quibble or two.

    “The right tends to assume that the only possible causes for transgenderism could be leftism and a lack of masculinity…”

    Many on the right merely claim that trannies are mentally ill. As you mention, the famous trannies seem to possess more dominant traits, but is spousal abuse a masculine trait? Is bullying? I’m inclined to disagree. My wife the social worker has stated many times that physical violence between spouses is initiated at about a 50/50 ratio. Domestic violence between lesbians is high and most likely under reported. My junior high school was basically breeding ground for bossy and cruel minded rich girls. So I’m not really in agreement with the implication. A more fitting correlation among male trannies is they seem to have unhealthy levels/issues of/with anger, rage, resentment, and self loathing, especially the older ones.

    “so they are unable to notice that many of the best-known M-to-Fs are excessively masculine and right of center politically.”

    By nature a tranny is not a conservative. By action he is not conserving anything. Just because they want lower taxes because they are rich, doesn’t make them right of center. Politically – meaning, as a matter of policy – they want society forced to accept trannyism as normal. They want to pervert children. These are not right of center politics.

    “In contrast, the tens of thousands of cases of rapid-onset gender dysphoria that have swept American adolescent girls since the Jenner whoop-de-do are a novel mental disease never before seen. It’s the most blatant and alarming example of cultural contagion I can recall in my lifetime.”

    And this is why Jenner is evil. Healthy masculine men do not desire to be females. Expect to find Will Thomas in the news as the years go by, but not for winning swimming contests. He’ll be in the police blotter.

    • Agree: Barnard
  33. The left assumes that Lia Thomas and Zoey Tur must be oppressed victims of The Patriarchy, making them incapable of grasping how many famous transgenders are selfish bullies.

    I don’t know. Transgenders are a small but growing minority that has a big voice in public media due to having a few very vocal and crafty PR people.

    The majority of people, whether left or right, realize that most transgenders have some kind of personality disorder, and would probably agree that we should be kind to them, but not allow them to change society or institutions like women’s sport that the vast majority enjoy to some extent and don’t want to see destroyed.

    Disallowing athletes who have gone through male puberty from competing as girls or women seems like a commonsense solution. But I imagine that girls who have gone through female puberty will still be allowed to compete as men, if they so desire.

    We don’t really want to see Novak Djokovic or Tiger Woods reinvented as female competitors when they are too old or infirm to compete with men. But if they want to take the skirt and become grannies like Bruce Jenner and invite people to teas, then by all means.

  34. Im wondering if there is a racial angle to the teenage girl transitions.

    White women have become the target of the coalition of the fringes’ firing squad. They are called Karen’s and derided for any time they complain or stand up for themselves. When black women stand up for themselves and are not taken seriously enough, white people are to blame for their racism.

    Are there any stats as to the races of teenage girls who transition? I’d be willing to bet that white girls (who are now a minority of all girls aged 18 and under) are vastly over represented. Mostly because white parents are likely to not fight back against the dogma of transgenderism, and black/Latino/Asian parents aren’t woke enough to go along with it.

  46. Interesting observation about the center right masculine men going female. Seems a lot of them have multiple ex wives and military service. Could it all just be based on simmering rage PTSD ? Also do they ever lop off their male parts? For the most part (minus Bruce Jenner) they look like a silly lip stick pig with a bad wig and poorly stuffed bra. However this goes nowhere in explaining the myriad of tween girls who are getting a mastectomy before they even get a bra larger than a basic A cup.

  47. OT – forget Monkeypox, polio is back! Just another disease like TB which had vanished in the UK until we decided to Invite The World. Also implicated – vaccinations !

    https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/breaking-polio-spreading-britain-first-27300404

    Oral vaccines against polio offered abroad contain an “attenuated” form of the virus – weakened in a laboratory so it cannot cause disease.

    These vaccine-derived forms of the virus remain in stool and are occasionally picked up in routine UK testing of sewage samples, conducted in London and Glasgow.

    The oral vaccines are different to the polio injections offered in the UK which contain a completely inactivated form of the virus.

    It is thought someone from Afghanistan, Pakistan or Nigeria who had recently received the oral vaccine has seen this weakened form of the virus then mutate and passed it on to others.

    For the first time Britain has repeatedly detected genetically-linked samples suggesting the virus has been spreading since February and has continued to mutate from this symptomless vaccine-derived form.

    Recent fortnightly sewage samples have increased concerns it may have mutated from the harmless virus to the wild type form that was endemic in Europe from Victorian times.

    The UKHSA has declared a national incident and alerted the World Health Organisation, which could strip Britain of its polio-free status.

  48. ChrisZ says:
    @Redneck farmer

    Your observation is funny and apt, RF. But it also points to something deeper.

    Namely, that transgenderism is not ultimately an “exchange” of one sexual identity for another, but rather seems to result in an amalgamation of the worst personality aspects of both sexes: the brutality and self assertion of men, with none of the restraint; the manipulativeness and vanity of women, with none of the grace (or beauty—let’s be honest).

    This combination might, in fact, be some sort of definition of the superman (or more likely, superhuman) who defies mediocre convention, and lives beyond human norms (including the norm of male/female). Steve’s citation of the transgender’s sense of innate superiority might support this view.

    Nietzsche described his superman as a combination of spiritual opposites: Caesar with the soul of Christ. Our carnal age may have located superhumanity in some unholy combination of Idi Amin and Tonya Harding. Monsters of the masculine and feminine ego.

    “autogynephilia in which at puberty, a normally masculine boy begins dressing up in his mother’s lingerie and masturbating in front of the mirror, imagining himself as the beautiful girl he desires”

    Is this actually what happens, the trigger for late transition? I’ve not read the literature. My impression is more that it starts in midlife, when perhaps sex with the wife isn’t what it was, but I may well be wrong.

    Yes, and it’s a fetish that probably been supercharged by the prevalence of lesbian porn on the internet. These guys (like Thomas and Jenner) almost all become “lesbians.” They’re trying to become the object of their desires. It’s probably a very male-brained thing to obsess upon the object as an object and try to fabricate one for yourself, even if the material is yourself.

    And it has dovetailed with the post-Obergefell erasure of all social constraints on open perversity which requires celebration and the unpersoning of any dissenters, so fence-sitters who might have previously been somewhat satisfied sexually by secretly cross-dressing and with tailor-made pornography now have a more extreme avenue to pursue their fetishes.

    That was my impression as well. When the glory days of youth, Olympic golds, helicopter chases and a fun hot wife have passed you by.

    It is probably very difficult to find ordinary life stimulating after an unusually exciting young adulthood.

  59. Late onsetters don’t display typically female characteristics: they- of course- don’t have a maternal instinct; they don’t care for shopping; they’re not into fashion & gossip; they don’t have typically female sexual fantasies; they’re not into nursing & caregiving; Love doesn’t play the central point in their lives; they’re not into “finding their Mr. Perfect”; they’re not avid readers of romance fiction; ….

  60. I’m surprised by some obvious omissions — the Wachowskis, for instance; another commenter once pointed out a memory-holed Rolling Stone article that detailed the kinks that one of the brothers indulged when he became rich and famous.

    “We might have been better off if we just acknowledged autogynephilia as a fetish”

    The fact that men like to dress as women was acknowledged, but not encouraged, “in Elder Days before the Fall”. They were called transvestites aka “female impersonators” . There were retail and mail order outlets that catered for them, advertising in magazines like Exchange and Mart and Private Eye.

    I had a neighbour who used (after his wife died) to dress in women’s clothes – blouses and slacks as befitted a 60 year old, but I never saw him in full regalia. He fitted the classic late developer – he’d been an aircraft engineer for 40 years, not a stereotypical female occupation. We used to talk about planes. He had kids.

    Conversely in a Birmingham takeaway 30 years ago there was a young (20?) Pakistani transvestite in the queue, dressed and made up beautifully, only the hands and Adam’s apple as giveaways. I remember hoping her family didn’t kill her – easy to think of “her” because she’d made such an effort.

    I heard either Blanchard or Bailey say that when AGPs are young they can get off on regular sex but when the t fades only the AGP fetish sex drive is strong enough to work.

    In the past there was a cost to coming out trans so it made sense to try and keep it secret. These days it gives them status so why try to hide it.

Now, parents – with encouragement by school teachers, staff and family doctors – are more likely to promote transitioning with hormone blockers and other drugs and multiple surgeries without realizing it’s just a phase and the long-term damage they are inflicting on their kids.

    tomboyism in little girls. … goes away with time

    I’ve noticed that (setting aside the very small number who grow up to be real lesbians) when puberty hits, often the most tomboyish of girls suddenly become boy crazy. It’s as if the estrogen wash (to generalize all that happens) resets their brains.

    Also, what a tomboy is is pretty much defined by the current social mores. For example, in The Mask of Sanity by psychiatrist Hervey M. Cleckley, the 1941 book in which he coined the term “psychopath,” Cleckley tells of a woman he suspected of being a psychopath because she wanted to be a newspaper reporter! As an aside, he notes that she displayed no evidence of lesbianism! There are similar examples in the book, especially regarding women who enjoyed sex or wanted to do then-stereotypical men’s jobs. They had to be mentally ill because they didn’t fit the received perception of how girls and women were expected to behave, especially by men of Cleckley’s social class. Reading his book in today’s world, a reader might come to the conclusion that it was Cleckley who was mentally ill. But that would be no more true than that a woman in the 1930s who wanted to be a journalist was.

    Today, women have more options, even serving in the armed forces in combat roles, which leads some men to believe such women must be lesbians or at least have such tendencies. It seems to baffle them that a woman such as Jana Tobias, an army helo pilot who served two tours in Iraq, comfortable wearing battle rattle and going downtown, also enjoys being a sexy pin-up girl. There are many such examples. You can find a lot of them on the Pin-Ups for Vets calendars which are especially appealing to female vets who love posing in the 1940s-era pin-up style, but there are many much more risque examples of women in traditionally male jobs who love showing off their female sexy side. But I can’t think of even one example of such a woman who would pose as a pretend male or insist that men actually accept her as a real man. On the contrary, she may pose in Coco de Mer lingerie to assert her femininity despite her masculine job.

    About the male trannies and all the rest of that, I shield my eyes and look away. I don’t even want to know. Just wait it out till it all comes crashing down and hope it doesn’t take too many normies with it when it collapses.

    I do think that the sexual fetish of imagining yourself the opposite sex is a male thing. I think Sailer has explained why some males do it quite well. But the teen girls who think they should become boys just need some strong adult guidance and sympathy. What happens to a girl’s body during puberty can be humiliating, if not horrifying. Those in positions of power and influence who encourage girls to avoid this by becoming “male” should be, if not put in jail, at least told by society at large to shut up.

    And if we’re brave enough to admit it’s the former, can we honestly start to take a look at the intellectual and ideological and, yes, religious frameworks that these types of girls have made for themselves without outside input on places like Tumblr and now TikTok and Twitter and how their endless crusades might be a little irrational and immature and dangerous for society to take seriously?

    Something is happening in these clips but it’s not sober and rational politics and so far it’s led to an important check on crazy neocon warmongering being removed vis-a-vis Ukraine and Russia by making progressive liberals into neocons on Russia.

    “Do higher levels of T–and aromatase enzyme–result in higher levels of estrogen in middle age? ”

    In normal men, T levels drop and E levels increase as they get older. This leads to a whole lot of problems, including prostate cancer. Men who use steroids have to be concerned with excess T being converted in E by the body, which can lead to, among other things, gynecomastia. there are aromatase inhibitors like anastrozole that basically block estrogen from binding to receptors in all different parts of the body. Women are primarily prescribed anastrozole for breast cancer prevention and treatment. Bodybuilders use it to prevent man boobs.

    But to your first point. Steroid use isn’t the issue, or at least, high t-levels aren’t. It’s more often than not high estrogen levels that create both psychological and physical problems for men and even women, especially the older they get. I would guess several million men in the US are on TRT or use steroids recreationally, and have been for decades. They aren’t going tranny.

    As with pretty much everything else, we have been lied to about T for decades. T is the hormone of youth, strength, vitality, and and virility. Even higher than normal levels are not unsafe if managed correctly. However high levels of estrogen, especially in men, are the cause of a multitude of physical and mental health issues.

    I’d be much more inclined to associate high E levels with trannism than high T levels. But like I keep saying, the factors that lead to a man to go tranny are very complex, and cannot being hung upon one single hormone. Steve sees a pattern of “masculine alpha males” going tranny, but he only analyses the famous ones. I see a pattern of narcissistic and entitled assholes.

    It is middle class and upper middle class white girls who benefit the most for Title IX. It is not about casual fans but about the women wanting to compete. If one looks at the top 20 in women;s sports, the percentage of schools on US News top 100 is much greater than in men’s sports. Women’s sports does not produce a George Mason, a Butler, a Fresno State, or a Boise State. The women use the sport recruiting to get admitted to better schools with the goal of graduating since the pro prospects are much smaller. Look at the recent results for softball, lacrosse, or soccer.

    How much evidence is there that ex-men on average have very high IQs?That would appear very odd. Especially for those who didn’t grow up effeminate at early childhood.

    So “macho” behavior (testosterone?) isn’t affected by replacing that with estrogen?

    Working transvestites (often not altered males) are known to be violent due to their work as fake female prostitutes. Sometimes beaten by unhappy customers but often attacked, even killed by jealous rivals. Cops usually know this.

    the wikipedia doth state:

    The prevalence of transgender-related surgeries is difficult to measure and likely underestimated. In 2015, the largest survey of transgender people in the United States reported that 25% of respondents reported having undergone such a surgery.

    I believe this number is horse feces myself. I would guess .5%. Think surgical separation siamese twins.

He wasn’t an alpha male (threw like a girl), but wasn’t effeminate, had several girlfriends and is married to a woman who I guess is now technically a lesbian. He did have some minor mental health issues, but was always functional. Can’t figure that one out.

    Children do not deserve to grow up in a shit show in which the adults have left the room.

    It is all a laugh until a friend’s child (or worse, a family member) decides to transition; or if you are a teacher with three F2M trans in your class. Earlier generations of kids expressed their dysphoria through anorexia or self-harm, and adults would do their best to discourage these habits. Adults who try to discourage childhood transgenderism are likely to find themselves in trouble with their employer or the authorities.

    But it is possible to reverse the madness, as we are now discovering with women’s sport: one by one, the governing bodies of sport are coming to their senses. The same reversal will one day happen with attitudes to childhood transsexuality, and in 20 years’ time people will wonder how we – and especially the responsible authorities – could have been so stupid. Above all, why do they remain stupid for so many years?

    Probably the worst aspect of the current trans craze, aside from the risk to naive children, is the communist style demand that we “speak their words.”

    So what is particularly disturbing is to see idiot Woke Democrats during their 2020 lie-fest, begin each of their brief propaganda blabs with the phrase: “my pronouns are I, she and her.” Or “my pronounces are “me, him and guy.” Etc, ad nauseam. Surprisingly, no Zers or Thems.

    This has waned somewhat as it always sounds silly, like some third grader discussing how he/she is really a giraffe called “Spotty.”

    But the Woke print media, even in the semi Woke Wall St. Journal, now helpfully writes that “Sarah X. Thomas-Friedman, who goes by They, says that…”

    So I can tolerate people LARPing as Princess Swan Song or Max Knight 0f the Purple Order the Roundtable. But when the freak show and their thuggish media stooges demand that I speak to them, or about them, using silly words and oddball terms “Leo Harper, who is non-binary, tells us…” then I’m out.

    “Healthy masculine men do not desire to be females. Expect to find Will Thomas in the news as the years go by, but not for winning swimming contests. He’ll be in the police blotter.”

    Michael Jameson, aka Lauren Jeska, didn’t like the idea of being excluded from women’s fell-running events, so stabbed the UK athletics official who he blamed and nearly killed him. His injuries left him permanently damaged.

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4312594/Fell-runner-jailed-trying-murder-athletics-official.html

    On March 22 last year, Jeska calmly signed herself in at Mr Knibbs’ office, before arming herself with two large kitchen knives she had concealed in a rucksack and raining down blows on his head and neck.

    One eyewitness said Jeska looked ‘as though she were trying to skewer meat’.

    Detective Sergeant Sally Olsen said of the case: ‘We understand Jeska had been asked to provide further evidence of hormone levels after historical complaints to UK Athletics that she had an unfair advantage competing in women’s events because she had been born a man.

    ‘The governing body’s policy required the athlete to take a blood test but she took exception to this and feared being unable to compete.’

    Describing the stabbing, prosecution barrister Richard Atkins QC said: ‘CCTV captured what can only be described as a frenzied attack.

    ‘She lunged and attacked him about the head and neck area using both knives, making repeated attempts to stab him.’

    Mr Knibbs was caught ‘completely off-guard’, with the 52-year-old recalling the sight of his own blood.

    Mr Atkins said: ‘He was aware of blood pumping out of his neck and could see it on the wall behind him.’

    Despite being stabbed in the throat, in a blow which nicked both his carotid artery and jugular vein, Mr Knibbs managed to grab both Jeska’s wrists while shocked colleagues rushed to his aid.

  133. Anonymous[157] • Disclaimer says:

    It’s hard to lose when you have as much of an ideological tailwind at your back as Thomas has had

    It being an international body, perhaps non-Western votes involved.

    An extraordinary fraction of the most prominent and influential male-to-female transgenders are, when you stop and think about them, obvious examples of male ego, aggression, and self-assertion run amok.

    Some want to be ‘women’ to compete in feminine beauty, but that’s always a losing proposition as any pretty woman looks better than a tranny man.

    But some want to be ‘women’ to compete with women in unfeminine fields, and most of sports isn’t feminine, even when women are involved. It’s intensely physical, even violent. It’s weird. One wonders if they would have turned to female sports if they could have been champions in male sports. It seems the less-than-best male athletes go for women’s sports as trannies. But Bruce Jenner did win the gold in the Olympics. If he could do it again, would have wanted to compete in the Heptathlon with the girls?

    Similarly, a few years ago Susan Faludi, another well-known woman journalist, published a memoir, In the Darkroom, about her nasty dad who decided late in life that he was a woman.

    Maybe people like Faludi should consider their role in society. Feminists have been putting men down for years. So, just like there is flight from white(where even whites pretend to be black, brown, or whatever), maybe there’s a Bail From Male. If you’re a ‘sister’, you can’t be put down for your ‘male chauvinism’.

    Yet few on either the left or the right have noticed this pattern that many of the most influential men to declare themselves women have virtually no feminine traits whatsoever.

    This is increasingly meaningless because the current leftoidism and rightoidism are so unlike their past versions. Current leftoidism is fully with hierarchy, support of deep state(CIA and FBI), military prowess, oligarchs, super-wealth, will-to-power, success, and contempt for ‘losers’.
    Current rightoidism cannot even muster up manly leaders to push back against BLM and Globo-Homo. It’s into ‘democrats are the real racists’.

    Furthermore, Jews are considered to be on the Left but so many ultra-nationalists on Israel and tribal identity. Blacks pose as Leftists but are into racial identity, even racial supremacism. And over the years, homosexuality has become synonymous with ambition, ruthless cunning, and domination.

    So, what does it mean that some trannies are on the Right? Their very antics undermines the very meaning of the Right. Any Right that accepts Bruce Jenner as a woman is just cuck farce.

    unhappy adolescent girls in horrifying numbers have been self-diagnosing that the source of their discontent must be that they were “assigned” the wrong gender at birth.

    On the bright side, good many such nutters will be children of globalists and they won’t be having kids. Sure, they may regret it later in life, but not my problem.

    tens of thousands of cases of rapid-onset gender dysphoria… It’s the most blatant and alarming example of cultural contagion I can recall in my lifetime.

    Associations matter in power. Homos were lucky to be favored by Jews. Trannies are lucky to be favored by homos. Jews take care of homos, homos take care of trannies.
    Connections can even validate nazi-types. We’ve been told nazis are the worst, but they’ve gotten media protection in Ukraine where the nazi-types are linked with Jewish Zelensky and globalists.
    If Jews didn’t protect homos, homos wouldn’t have power to protect the trannies. Tranny stuff would turn into a joke overnight.

    The most excusable reason neither the left nor the right has made much sense of transgenderism is that it’s confusing.

    The prevailing culture of minority elite privilege dictates that we favor certain nonwhites and Jews over whites. Then, tranny ‘women’ should likewise be favored over real women. It rhymes.

    This is frequently (and perhaps always) related to a rather comic sex fetish called autogynephilia in which at puberty, a normally masculine boy begins dressing up in his mother’s lingerie and masturbating in front of the mirror, imagining himself as the beautiful girl he desires.

    Just how does this work? A masculine young males wants to have sex with a pretty girl. So, why would he want to put himself in the body of the girl being penetrated? It’s like someone who loves steaks pretending to be a steak that is being eaten.
    Also, if a guy looks at himself in the mirror in dress, how can he possibly imagine he is looking at a pretty girl when it’s clearly him, a guy?
    Maybe it’s a kind of psychological hermaphroditism where he feels as two sexes at once. It’s too weird for logic.

    It’s important to note that there is no female equivalent to late-onset gender dysphoria.

    Perhaps, it’s a more male thing because aging has a more of tragic dimension with women. When men age, they just age. They go from men to old men. No big deal.
    But a woman aging has more layers of meaning and significance because women are more narcissistic and fear the loss of beauty. Women get more plastic surgery and get neurotic with makeup. Or goes nutty like in Sunset Boulevard. Men just fade away whereas women struggle to keep their beauty.
    Maybe alpha men are more sensitive about aging than regular guys. Most guys weren’t tough guys and just grow old. But a tough guy who loses his hyper masculinity is bound to feel a greater sense of loss. And maybe this makes them identify with the tragedy of female aging. Beautiful women and tough guys both have a kind of diva mentality as centers of attention.

    For example, the reason Thomas wants so much to beat women in the pool is likely because his innate sense of superiority was being invalidated by his being a constant loser in male swimming. So, he undertook a course of superiority-complex-affirming therapy by beating women.

    More damaging to the West than men doing women’s sports on the basis of ‘gender fluidity’ is allowing blacks to compete with whites in the name of ‘race is just a social construct’. Black domination has done great harm to white male esteem and psychology. And that could be part of tranny nuttery. While there are black trannies too, it seems white men compete with women over womanhood because they lost manhood to blacks.

    This is partly our sick culture, but sexual tastes are mostly not products of culture. Boys generally see an about equal number of attractive men and women growing up and in media, but 97% will end up being primarily or exclusively attracted to women.

    Perhaps eventually but they can’t easily reverse boobs that were grown from hormones.

    Teenagers can be impressionable to all kinds of ideas and all it takes is one encounter with a predatory homosexual and they can be damaged for life.

    Teenagers need to be protected from not just sexual predators but promoters of sexual perversions. They should be engaged in healthy and positive activities. They really don’t need to be engaged in sexual activities. I had sex early on and regret it. Seemed exciting at the time but I would have been better off focusing more on sports.

    Relatedly, increasingly addictive videogames are a major problem for young non-black American men. They don’t count however among our ruling classes.

    I saw this in college. A friend of mine lost his scholarship to video game addiction and never really recovered. I think he hides it from us. Another friend lost his girlfriend and it really crushed him for years.

    The percentage of young men who reach age 30 and are still virgins was about 12% from the 1990s to about 2010, but now is more like 25%.

    It’s an awful problem and the parents are often complicit. They let them stay at home and work some part time job at the most. Or they let them get some easy degree and then they bounce around low paying jobs.

    A lot of these guys also don’t know how to talk to women. Some just give up and live a video game lifestyle. I worked with some of these guys and they would tell me that their lives were hopeless. Sad.

    I would in fact discourage office work for most White guys. Unless you are highly skilled they are going to turn you into a runt. The trades at least get guys in shape and provide them with a better social circle. One problem I saw in the office world is that guys in their 20s would get stuck in these ruts. They don’t make enough for women to take interest in them and they also aren’t in shape or in a good social circle. The low end office jobs are bad news for White men. Basically too much affirmative action for non-technical positions and it takes too long to get into management. I’ve seen too many White guys dedicated themselves to “the cause” and they just get passed over for being the wrong race and gender. Offices today have all kinds of female and effeminate liberal arts majors that collude against White men at the bottom.

    I doubt that he believes just that.

    Male exclusive homosexuality is obviously inborn and seems to be about 2 or 3% across races, times, and locations. The female version is around 1.5%.

    Other forms of gender non-conformity are correlated with bad parenting, especially the new trend of teen girls claiming to be transgender. Some milder form of same sex attraction is more common, but successful parents prevent such children from becoming full on practicing homo or bisexuals.

    OFF TOPIC: from the
    Minneapolis Star-Tribune

    The show will not go on for “The Taming of the Shrew” in Winona.

    Great River Shakespeare Festival has canceled its production of William Shakespeare’s comedy/drama that also is known as the inspiration for the Cole Porter musical “Kiss Me, Kate.”

    “Shrew,” about the turbulent relationship between a pair of brawling lovers, was scheduled to run through July 31.

    The production was adapted and directed by Lisa Wolpe, who took a gender-switched, multiracial approach to the piece, which is not often staged because of its violence and gender politics (some productions have addressed this by, for instance, casting women in all of the roles). Wolpe’s plan was to reframe the dynamics of the play, casting a bLack man as the character usually called Kate (renamed Kat) and a woman as Petruchio (renamed Petruchia).

    At the Shakespeare festival, it didn’t come together as anticipated.

    “The pressures of time, as well as the charged nature of the play’s content, contributed to an atmosphere in the rehearsal room that was difficult, even impossible,” according to a statement from the festival’s administrators.

    The statement added that the show was canceled “to protect the health and well being of everyone in our company.” Artists are being paid for their work and have other roles in this season’s shows, which include “Twelfth Night” and “The African Company Presents Richard III.”

  167. The colossal narcissism built into the men-in-dresses seems to be an overriding factor.

    In a word, hubris.

    As Steve points out, most of the post-puberty onset dudes always felt superior to all the others, and swimmer Thomas’s self-belief in their own superiority had to be reinforced by actually, you know, winning, hence why Thomas pretended to be a girl. What is more, most of the guys who get post-pubescent trannyism this way also did heavy amounts of steroids or other PEDs earlier in life to “get ahead”. Either the drugs had a warping effect on their brain, or else the drugs stopped being able to push them to the top of the list anymore, so they resorted to pretending to be girls to be the “best of the girls”.

    To add to that, I’d like to point out that Bruce Jenner has, for a very long time, thought of himself as way more of a celebrity than he actually was. I mean, Olympic gold medal decathletes aren’t even the biggest stars of their own Olympic games; that’s always the sprinters and basketball players (for men) and gymnastics (for girls). It’s not 2500 B.C. anymore.

    But for some reason, Jenner thought he was the world’s most famous athlete. I remember when VH1 did “I Love the 80’s” about a 1980 movie flop-bomb-cheesy flick called Can’t Stop the Music in which Bruce Jenner :starred”. It was a movie co-starring the Village People (yes, those Village People). When interviewed about the joke of a film, Jenner with a straight face said, “I mean, I didn’t think it could fail. It was Bruce Jenner and the Village People!”

    Jenner has consistently thought everyone remembers him, like some sad washed up former high school athlete thinking the kids in high school who never saw him play think he’s awesome. But when the Kardashian show came out and he wasn’t the star, and the sluts on it became big and got more screen time, he decided he needed to prove who the best woman on the show was by….becoming one.

    Given the link with autogynephilia, I think the overwhelming trait in post-pubescent men-in-dresses is just a completely warped sense of greatness–narcissism warped by extreme masculinism. They have to beat everyone, they have to be the center of attention, they have to be the most famous, and the only woman good enough for them is a woman exactly like themselves.

    Hubris does incredibly weird and bad things to people, as the ancient Greek playwrights noted.

    It is as much nurture as nature.

    It is no more “inborn” or permanent that alcoholism. To become an alcoholic, you not only need the genes that would make you likely to turn to alcohol to deal with your problems, but also a bad environment that stresses your genes to react negatively and a world that tolerates, accepts, or encourages your degeneracy.

Post 2008 or so, they go to the air-conditioned gym and lift weights for 30 minutes while staring in the mirror (if male, increasingly women too though) or do some light stretching class they think is “yoga” (if female) and are confused when these activities don’t keep the pounds off and their blood pressure/sugar down.

Those in some sort of distress, ennui, depression, general dissatisfaction with life, and those prone to hysteria (which can include men). There always seems to be any number of contagions though the trans phenom is one of the more aggressive, less benign ones that can affect kids. Chronic fatigue syndrome, recovered memories, gluten-free obsessions in those who do not have antibodies, desire to have a healthy limb amputated, the June bug epidemic, dancing manias, demonic possession/Satanic panics, and pseudo Tourette’s disorder. We will see what the long term outcomes of trans will be. Right now they are riding high because everyone has to bend over backwards to accommodate them.

    If Kaufman is right that LGBT identity is increasingly an expression of a more general left-wing politics, then it would be unsurprising to learn that progressive messaging about the prevalence of “white supremacy” is fueling trans identification within one of society’s most impressionable demographics. Josie and Devon (pseudonyms), two parents who lead the online support group Parents with Inconvenient Truths about Trans (PITT), told me how their sons’ exposure to gender-identity ideology in school was preceded by a prolonged “Marxist” analysis of American history.

    Another option available to girls who wish to escape or at least mitigate their status as oppressors is to have a diagnosed mental-health problem—especially ADHD, multiple-personality disorder, gender dysphoria, depression, or anxiety. Patricia said that it is not uncommon for teenage girls in her daughter’s community to one-up one another constantly based on who has more (or more severe) diagnoses. Data compiled over the past decade show a huge upsurge in mental-health problems in youth of both sexes but especially among teenage girls and young women.

    He undoubtedly wasn’t a “late developer” in the sense of having come up with a new fetish in middle age; he likely dressed all along, all of his adult life, either secretly or with his wife’s knowledge. His wife’s death and the fact of his children being out of the house just freed him up to be less secretive about it all. This sort of thing has gone on forever, with many autogynephiles living lives of quiet desperation, and with much depending on how their wives understand and react to it, as with any other kink. The autogynephile I knew was married, had children, was a professional, had fought in World War II, was a great man in all other respects — and his wife hated his autogynephilia. She withstood it in that they never divorced, but she hated it. He kept it under wraps and no one else knew until he was a rather old man, when his fetish was discovered accidentally. It’s all very sad, and I have pity for everyone involved.

    Im wondering if there is a racial angle to the teenage girl transitions.

    A very good article from City Journal answers ‘yes’ to your question:

    The Assault on Children’s Psyches

    Here’s how it begins:

    Patricia (a pseudonym) is the mother of a teenage girl who in recent years has come to identify as transgender. She lives in California, considers herself progressive, votes Democrat, and leads a group for parents of children with rapid onset gender dysphoria (ROGD)—that is, youth who suddenly experience distress with their bodies and believe that undergoing medical “transition” will make them whole again. When I spoke to her recently, she recounted how her daughter’s at-first-lesbian and then trans identity emerged in response to feelings of shame about being white.

    I have since spoken to more than a dozen ROGD parents and parent-group leaders who tell a similar story. Their schools compulsively tell their children how awful it is to be white, how white people enjoy unearned “privilege,” how they benefit from “systems” put in place by and for white people for the sole purpose of oppressing “people of color.” Plagued by guilt, the children—almost all of them girls—rush to the sanctuary of “LGBTQ+” identity. Once there, they are catapulted into hero status.

    I highly recommend reading the whole thing; it’s an excellent complement to Steve’s stellar Taki article.

Moreover, between Donald Trump’s election, the attempted coup at the US Capitol, numerous mass shootings, a Republican Party bent on voter suppression, and the rise of conspiracy cults like QAnon, there is more than enough evidence to suggest that some aspects of American political and social life have become deeply pathological,” Stiglitz pointed out.

    The guy is absolutely begging for a beating from these girls’ boyfriends or brothers. But then they would be–our sick, parasitic establishment–official bad guys and have no future. And the girls–being what they are–would probably disown and denounce these guys for doing the traditional male job of protecting and maintaining the society.

    If girls and guys really were “the same” with just “different pluming”, the girls would gang up sufficiently to restrain Thomas and give him a dickectomy. That story would just be too confusing and narrative debunking for the media to want to deal with.

    If girls and guys really were “the same” with just “different pluming”, the girls would gang up sufficiently to restrain Thomas and give him a dickectomy. That story would just be too confusing and narrative debunking for the media to want to deal with.

    Does the female penis really elicit such jealousy in the patriarchy that you constantly need to fantasize about removing it (and probably also keeping it for yourself as a talisman of female potency)?

    I really don’t see anything wrong with having women’s sports in things like swimming, running, fencing, etc. They can’t compete with males but contests among (real) women are valid and if they women involved enjoy these activities I don’t see any reason to ban them.

    Perhaps due to Title IX these sports are over-funded in relation to the actual level of interest of spectators and participants but if these sports were allowed to seek their natural level without a government or activist thumb on the scale they might still exist to some extent and certainly should not be prohibited.

    Jews had created this upside down “minorities first” as America’s establishment ideology.

    Joos – is there anything (bad) they can’t do? It’s really amazing that a 2% minority was able to convert the majority of the rest of the country to their ideology. You would think that this great nation that won world wars and landed on the moon would not be so susceptible to being led around by the nose by such a small group.

    The reason that “minorities first” took hold is that Americans are a moral people and moral Americans (even before the revolution and ever since) recognized that bringing Africans over here in chains to work as hereditary slaves was morally wrong. It was America’s original sin. America can never be whole and peaceful until this has been made right. Christian thinkers recognized this long before the Jews were even a factor in America.

    This is why the calls for reparations still resonate today. The problem is, this original sin can never be made right and America is doomed to permanent discord. America’s bad luck that the group that they brought over in chains was incompatible with Western civilization and could not be digested in 400 years. If they had brought over say Irish or Slavs or even (dot) Indians or Chinese as slaves, they would have disappeared into the society long ago, but blacks are the meal that can never be digested, the sore that will never heal no matter how many dollars we bandage the wound with.

    All other forms of minority privilege follow from black privilege. Once you have flipped the totem pole of the societal hierarchy and made the last first in order to make amends, it naturally follows that the 2nd to last shall be 2nd, etc.

    You can oppose the system of slavery while acknowledging that race is more than skin paint from God or nature.

    Race denial is the problem and yes it predates the waves of Russian Jewish immigrants.

    Christian thinkers today still refuse to acknowledge race and prefer moral explanations. Well this just feeds the left as they are unable to explain persistent racial inequality. It also isn’t fair to Blacks to blame their nature on personal moral failings. I have seen Black children cry over being unable to pass a standardized test and our Great Moral Christian Thinkers would assume they just need to study more or have bad parents.

    Racism can be crass and crude but Christian race denial causes a slow and ultimately more destructive malaise. It leads to unwinnable situations where the left takes over.

    The middle ground is in acknowledging the biological reality of race while finding practical solutions that mitigate the worst types of inequality.

    That’s why it’s a hypothesis.

    Read the original paper, which actually had nothing to do with homosexuality. Infectious sources of known diseases are being discovered all the time (ulcers, cervical cancers). Some viruses cause diseases years later and/or only in combination with other viruses.

    It’s a matter of the process of elimination. Since gay men average 20% of the offspring of straight men, homosexuals would have gone extinct long ago if it were genetic. If homosexuality were due to Freudian nurture bullshit like domineering mothers and absent fathers, civilization would long ago have addressed those behaviors, since passing on your genes is one of the strongest human drives.

    Cochran’s original paper says there are certain diseases (from a Darwinian perspective) like sickle cell anemia, certain cancers, schizophrenia that behave as if they might have infectious causes.

    There are a few things that I should add.

    Girls who feel an intense pressure to conform to female stereotypes (or switch genders if they can’t) are too young to remember when gay panic was a bigger thing, as it was in the 1990s.

    However, not knowing how gender stereotype extremism started doesn’t keep it from affecting them. The young mainly pick up culture through osmosis.

    In looking at several synopsis of the “my husband came out as a trans woman” memoirs, it appears that many of the wives knew about the cross dressing and other fetish behavior before and during the marriage but tolerated it. I doubt if any of the women were married for very long without knowing something about their husbands sexual tendencies/cross dressing/gender issues.

    From the review of the first one I found on Amazon:

    Nothing is more certain in life than change, and this change is bigger than most. In 2009, Leslie Fabian’s husband, David-an orthopedic surgeon who’d been privately cross-dressing for most of his life-realized that brief forays into the world as Deborah would never be enough. This came as no surprise to Leslie.

    From the second memoir:

    Helen Boyd’s husband, who had long been open about being a cross-dresser, was considering living as a woman full time. Suddenly, Boyd was confronted with the reality of what it would mean if her husband were actually to become a woman socially, legally, and medically. Would Boyd love and desire her partner the same way?

    I avoid speaking in absolutes, but in my opinion TRT is perfectly safe for the majority of otherwise normal males as long as they apply the treatment with care and understanding. Not only safe, but for older men, returning T levels to previous or even up into the high end of what is considered the “normal range” will have results that might be dare I say, life changing.

    Now if TRT is administered incorrectly (because in my experience most physicians have nothing better than a cursory understanding of how the hormone actually works and also cling to the negative stereotypes associated with it) or carelessly, then yes, you can do tremendous damage to yourself.

    Ingesting steroids or synthetic T orally will damage your liver and or kidneys in fairly short order if taken for any length of time.

    Topical TRT is a nightmare. It’s messy, expensive, wasteful, difficult to know if your getting consistent absorption without doing blood tests every two weeks, it gets into your clothes, and you have to make sure no one else in your home is exposed to it.

    The safest and most practical way to manage TRT is intramuscularly. Good luck finding a doctor that will provide you with a prescription though. All the issues I’ve mentioned above are eliminated.

    Any way, all you have to do is make sure your estradiol and red blood cell numbers remain within the normal range. So blood tests before treatment starts (to establish a baseline) and the first couple months after treatment starts are necessary. If E or RBC count is high, then a simple aromatase inhibitor addresses the former and donating blood every couple weeks addresses the latter.

    Benefits:
    Libido and erections return (remember morning wood?) Viagra industry hit hardest.
    Increase in muscle mass and reduction in bodyfat. This is without ever even picking up a weight or running a single mile. But those things certainly help.
    Mood improves and mood swings decrease – pretty much the opposite of the roid rage myth occurs.
    Prostate health – normal T levels return the prostate to its normal size or at the very least stops the enlarging of it. Normal T/Low E are the key to avoiding prostate cancer. Improved urination (if weak urination were occurring)
    More energy and less of the heavy fatigue experienced in the mid late afternoons.
    Improved bone density.
    Improved cognitive function.

    Websites like WebMD are pretty much the NYT of men’s health. There’s a narrative that they are pushing. You have to dig to find the truth. High normal range T levels are a very very good thing for older men. But masculinity has been villainized for some time in our country. It’s only natural that TPTB would villainize T as well.

The student was extremely short and habitually wore elevator shoes in order to appear taller. The shadchan was attempting to persuade Rabbi Kotler that it was perfectly ethical not to reveal to the prospective bride that he wore elevator shoes, as after all, now he is 5 feet tall, never mind how he got there.

One week the subject was Orthodox Jews and the professor mentioned that marriages were arranged among them by a special matchmaker known as the Shad Chen*. Shad as in fish and Chen as in the Chinese surname. Contrary to Crichton, this did not induce Gell Mann Amnesia in me. When he gave his next lecture on aborigines or whatever, I just assumed that the guy had no idea what he was talking about when it came to them either and from this I generalized the idea that most academics in the soft sciences were just bullshitters.

    To answer your question about permanency – I could spend a while typing out a half assed reply from my questionable memory so instead I’ll give you the short answer: No, it’s not permanent.

    Here’s a video with Rand McClain specifically addressing how to come off a cycle/TRT and what to do to get your testicles functioning normally again. It’s easier than you might think. You can start at 7 minute mark to cut through the lead or watch it all:

    Just so you know what he’s talking about: HGC is human chorionic gonadotropin, and basically what it does is reawaken the testes so they start producing T again. Some guys will use it all throughout a cycle if they want to have kids, but you have to inject it daily and that’s a pain. So it’s mostly used when one wants to come off TRT and not experience a T level crash.

    And just as info: Older guys with no plans to have kids can basically use TRT for the rest of their lives if they want. As long as the therapy maintains normal and consistent T levels, and all the usual precautions are continued, they are good to go.

    Ps. Beet pills and GFB – I’m on it. LOL

Bruce’s other advocations….motorbike racing, powerboat racing, stock car racing….perhaps one in a few thousand women would “organically” take them up less a male sponsor; none would waste untold hours goofing with model aircraft.

    I am so happy about this call, yesterday. As an athlete and winning the Eastern Conference in the 80’s, jocks-with-cocks were never on our nor the opposing teamwe were playing Div 1, albeit, way before today’s Women’s NBA/Soccer, with many more teams across the USA, etc.

    Jocks with Cocks are stronger than even the toughest woman (me! hahhahhaaa) because of testosterone, leg length, wingspan, foot size (flippers). This is just the reality about blood reaching muscles per nano second/bone density faster, (would ruin big pharma selling old women bone density meds : \$\$\$\$\$), and heart recourse.

    I am so relieved that women get to compete without men in their realm.

    This is very serious and compelling but I don’t know enough about France to properly weight the various entities and statements. For example, we don’t really do dossiers, which was part of the artificiality and alien nature of the vast anti-Trump effort.

    It’s not an accusation, it’s a suspicion. But he colluded.
    Colluded in what?
    Meddling.

    It’s really amazing that a 2% minority was able to convert the majority of the rest of the country to their ideology.

    IKR? Whoever heard of a minority controlling a majority? Physically impossible! The very idea!

    The reason that “minorities first” took hold is that Americans are a moral people

    “Minorities first” is a bad morality that has taken hold because it has been enforced by our political and business rulers who are not accountable to the majority.
    It serves the interests of a greedy and power-hungry elite, it serves the moral vanity and sanctimony of the one-third of the population who are liberals with too much money in their pockets and too much time on their hands, and it serves the self-interest of invaders, psychos, and blacks.
    “Minority first” has been enacted every step of the way by court rulings and administrative edicts. The majority never voted for this.
    Democracy means majority rule. Minority rule is oligarchy.
    No matter – there is nothing wrong with America that a long war won’t fix.

    IDK …, having two nephews ‘turned’ in liberal environments, one trans the other non-het, I have a more reflective and studied opinion …

    The only thing I can say is the trans seemed to be a victim of sexual violence in the US military, maybe originating in a fatherless family (father died of heart attack in 20s), raised by mother and daughter – so there’s that. Otherwise, he’s pretty psychologically closed when it comes to discussing the issue.

    The non-het is just physically and mentally ‘different’ in a weird way – leading me to think that he is a result of vaccine [schedule] experimentation on the U.S. general population, resulting in the autism epidemic, and whatever else we don’t know about, and thus didn’t ask. JB Handley’s books are enlightening in this regard – he works were brutally attacked, so there may be credence to his studies indicating vaccine schedule packing during childhood development causes er, physical and psychological and developmental issues. See this study for the physical side of vaccinating youth … (attacked and retracted as part of the COVID med-OP, but originally an accepted study).

    Study: Relative Incidence of Office Visits and Cumulative
    Rates of Billed Diagnoses Along the Axis of Vaccination
    Link: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33266457/

    Then there’s the psychological or behavioristic study on how to achieve buy-in to a meme in this study. Although not directly related to gender dysphoria, it demonstrates how to get young people to buy-in to a specific thought pattern. A relatively tough read, but worth it once one considers the consequences after allowing the information time to digest.

    Study: Moral Panics
    Link: https://doi.org/10.1093/acrefore/9780190264079.013.155
    (Note: This may involve a cultural angle as Stan Cohen performed the original study in the ’60s).

    Given this, a lot of emphasis has been placed on the off the charts immoral behavior of trans and non-Het males, seemingly to be capped with the accusation of narcissism. There’s no denying this, but this may be a symptom of something happening in the psychological background. There have been studies in people with complex-PTSD that indicate when someone so afflicted also includes the narcissism trait, he/she/it can no longer be cured. So, it’s not totally out of the question that these dysphoric sexuality groups have used this knowledge as part of the grooming process.

    Book: Complex PTSD: from Surviving to Thriving, Author: Pete Walker
    (A relatively tough read but gives a good idea of the background of US social development over the years – the results, that is.)

    And so, the issue intended in the blog-post is correct, but seems not to have considered the broader range of the subject. Yes, the immoral behavior toward others should be resisted, not by force, but probably by repeatedly asking the perpetrators to face their own past personal histories.

  269. Great column, Steve at his brave best.

    I think this proves the opposite of what you intend. Alcoholism is another condition that has a strong hereditary component. There are men who are naturally attracted to strong drink or to other men (sometimes to both) but some people, equipped with desire to do so and strength of will, are able to overcome their natural tendencies. This doesn’t mean that they never had these tendencies to begin with.

    It’s a very interesting point and one I wish we were allowed to discuss freely. Nature/Nurture is very inconsistently applied.

    Sailer wins when he sticks to stats and facts the mainstream sweeps under the rug. I don’t find it productive to call a group ‘pervs’. Their first reaction is going to entrench themselves and jam it down your throat that this is the way, and everyone needs their pronouns on their name tag, and all bathrooms around the land need to be reconstructed gender neutral.

    What is normal is also somewhat relative. I think some states still have a law against fellatio (between man and woman), classifying it as a variation of sodomy – which itself polarizes many male-female couples as to whether it is a deviant perversion. As with women, it is a noisy, neurotic and inflexible segment of the whole group that is the problem.

    Most women in traditionally more male sports are dykes anyway.

    True in many places, not all. I recall when several Korean women were starting to make it big in LPGA, where the ‘L’ doesn’t really stand for ‘ladies’, there was a little fuss about how they tended to be accompanied by fathers.

    Dual-role, coach … and chaperone, to keep them away from the predatory sea-walls.

    Hot dog, that made them mad!

    We might have been better off if we just acknowledged autogynephilia as a fetish

    But what’s the psychology here?

    My understanding is autogs are not homosexual. They are men who like women. They like women so much that they want to be the women. Is there some kind of quantum mechanics involved here? A super-duper masculine guy is very very horny for the girl. His masculinity is so attracted to femininity that it wants to consume femininity itself? Is it like the ideological circle where the far left meets the far right?

    But if they really like femininity, how can they see anything feminine by looking at themselves in the mirror dressed like a girl?

    Imagine Lee Marvin as a autog in a dress staring into a mirror. How could he possibly be turned on by the image? Or Charles Bronson or Anthony Quinn. How can any guy dressed up as a girl look in the mirror and see something pretty or attractive? Even pretty Robert Redford would look ludicrous in a dress and makeup.

    Or do they fall into some kind of trance or hallucination? Like in the movie Dressed to Kill.
