Here’s what he been concerning me lately: we keep saying there’s no long-term studies to justify this kind of butchery, and that’s one of the things we say to push back against it. But are we really at a point where we need “studies” to tell us castrating and mutilating the bodies of minors, let alone ANYONE, is a net good or a net bad thing? Isn’t it playing into the game employed by medical malfeasance and greed, when we don’t need studies to tell us that this is an abject horror we are witnessing? This butchery has to end. Full stop.

Name, shame, and punish all doctors who do harm to patients. The Pritzkers fund trans clinics and make money from trans drugs. Plume Health mails hormones and surgery support letters across state lines after one Zoom consultation: https://yuribezmenov.substack.com/p/how-to-do-no-harm-part-2

This is so similar to the lobotomy craze.

"it’s kind of assault to make a patient remove an organ that they’re enjoying."

Ironic statement from a man who makes his living removing perfectly functional organs on request.

There's postmodernism in a nutshell. What matters isn't whether the organ is actually functioning correctly. What matters is the patient's perception of the organ. Perception creates reality, so actual reality must be modified to conform to your perception.

There is no logical endpoint to this philosophy. Mary Harrington has been great on pointing out that transgenderism is really only the onramp to transhumanism, the desire to remake ourselves in our own image. It is a logical consequence of the philosophy of scientific materialism. If man is just a random combination of chemicals that happened to produce a smart ape, why shouldn't the smart ape rearrange his chemicals as he sees fit. That's a loose rhyme for, "Ye too shall be as God."

Fortunately, systems of unreality always end. Reality wins... because it's real. Unfortunately, they can do a great deal of damage along the way, as we are seeing now.

In one sense, this barbarism is creating a population of sterile approximations of human beings, horrifying in the extreme.

In another sense these creatures are being removed from the gene pool, from the reproducing population, which is probably a benefit in the long run.

The exception, though, is the woman who has enough surgery to look like a man but keeps her reproductive parts and breasts, giving rise to the freakish spectacle of what were once called "bearded ladies" giving birth and suckling infants.

Pity the poor, soon-to-be-confused offspring of such a freak and the weirdo who impregnated her. He or she will be sent to a public school where he or she will be indoctrinated into the cockeyed world-view of the progressive catechism--the lies that constitute the "gender" nonsense advocated by latter-day Lysenkos.

This whole social movement is obscene, grotesque, and ultimately evil for its effect on relations between genuine men and women. Its advocates are irrational in the extreme and are adept at avoiding scrutiny and criticism and support a trans-human (read: anti-human) agenda whether they realize it or not. Not satisfied with the terms of being born in a human body, they seek some sort of adjustment which will ultimately render Homo sapiens sterile and asexual, a species that can no longer replace populations and ultimately dies out, leaving the Earth to the cockroaches and fungi. An environmentalist's dream.

Sadly, we live in a society so corrupted in thought that many people will have no objection to this if it is done to “consenting adults,” as if the Nuremberg doctors would have been totally justified to mutilate their victims had only those patients been mentally ill enough to consent to being tortured…

As long as this quack doctor has malpractice insurance he will and should be sued by victims who realize that they did not achieve the promised land assured by advocates of such "surgery "

“... removing all external genitalia to create a smooth transition from the abdomen to the groin.”

This is dehumanization in its most literal sense.

Even the NYT (https://www.nytimes.com/2023/08/23/health/transgender-youth-st-louis-jamie-reed.html) is slowly beginning to realize what European countries have come to understand about mutilating children without adequate assessment. The prestigious British Medical Journal makes the case:

We should be careful about crossing certain lines with legislation, lest we do more harm than good. Protecting children who can't consent is a no-brainer. It gets much more difficult when we're talking about protecting adults from themselves. Law is a very blunt instrument, the sausage is made badly, the bureaucracy executes poorly and is often corrupted by such laws (prohibition, for example).

As long as adults are spending their own money and bearing ALL the consequences of their actions in pursuit of whatever weird goals they have, we should tread lightly on the legislative front. Bearing all consequences means there should be no special legal protections for such people in terms of employment or other association. Under these conditions the small number of people who are helplessly bent on destroying themselves are not a threat to society, but just a sad, unhappy fact of life. Unless we're willing to bring them into our own homes and provide them nurturing care (I'm not), we need to at least leave them free to manage the best they can.

I find the whole business disgusting, whether it's the doctor doing the surgery or the patients destroying themselves, but in adults we need to combat that socially, not legally.

Is there any reality left in our America!

Truly evil. I have decided to pray for this monster. May he have his own day on the road to Damascus. In any case, like all of us, someday he will speak to God. In the meantime, thanks to all those actively standing in the gap to save children and trying to shape the culture back to the Good.

I think we should inundate the clinic with requests for for three penises or two vaginas. All of us should demand for appointments. Why stop with one of each? Push them to the limits. This is my truth after all.
