The title of this piece is a loose version of a quote that put me smack into the center of a massive controversy within the gaming journalism community that would eventually get me removed from it.

In a sane world, this quote would be pretty harmless. I’m essentially saying that if you’d like to be trans then that’s your prerogative, but you and I both know it’s not a biological fact, and if someone doesn’t want to say that you’re a woman because you’re really a man, then you shouldn’t force them to in any way, shape, or form.

And while the vast majority of readers may live in that sane world with me, there are many who don’t, and many who would rather capitulate to the outrage mob besides.  Sadly, those who do capitulate are a very large part of the populace and have become so large that it’s infected everything in our society from our laws to the way we handle our children. People, like me, have lost out on job opportunities because they spoke the truth, and not even a truth that should be difficult to accept.

Men and women are different. They may be two sides of the same Homosapien shaped coin, but they are different in mind and body. Everything, from the way our brains function to the way our skeletons are configured, is different. This isn’t a “socially constructed concept,” this is biology.

Ya know…science.

But transgender activists, being the most zealous of all the activist groups to the point of religious fervor not seen since the dark ages, work overtime to make sure anyone who steps out of line is immediately punished and canceled. According to the Daily Mail, one birth coach was “hounded out” of her position after she simply said that only women could have babies.

The Daily Mail reported that the post was offensive and did what mobs do, sending her organization into a panic, and leaving her out to dry:

Lynsey McCarthy-Calvert, 45, was forced to stand down as spokesperson for Doula UK and has since resigned altogether from the national organisation for birth coaches. Her exit comes after transgender rights activists triggered an investigation in which Doula UK concluded her message breached its equality and diversity guidelines.

They did not expel the mother- of-four, who has been a doula – who provide continuous support during pregnancy – for six years, but threatened to suspend her unless she deleted the post.

Mrs McCarthy-Calvert did so, but resigned believing Doula UK had ‘acquiesced’ to demands from a small number of activists and failed to stand up for women’s rights.

It’s far worse than bullying people from the outside of the medical industry, it’s also inside. Clinicians in the UK quit after a clinic was administering hormone treatments to children as young as three. The clinicians, who went anonymous for their own safety, said that they were under pressure from the Gender Identity Development Service in the UK to give children these treatments whether clinic staff believed they needed these treatments or not.

Don’t think this is just happening in the UK. Here in the United States, a systematic effort to take control of children’s medical decisions from parents and administer treatments that promote transgenderism in children is already well underway. They have been somewhat successful in various states, including red states.

This is beyond dangerous as transgenderism carries with it a 41 percent suicide rate that goes up 19 times after a full transition. Doing this to children who demonstrate even the slightest break in gender norms is not only irresponsible, it’s potentially deadly.

Transgender activists have even stopped research into the negative effects of transition procedures. According to Dr. Miroslav Djordjevic, the world’s leading expert on genital reconstructive surgery, he noted that five years ago he began seeing a trickle of people here and there who had transitioned, but were having massive regrets.

Soon, that trickle became a flood. Djordjevic said that he now does around 100 corrective surgeries for people who regret transitioning a year.

This got the attention of psychotherapist James Caspian, who requested funding from Bath Spa University in order to study the effects of transition surgery. After being approved, he was quickly summoned by the university’s ethics committee and denied his funding. According to Caspian, they did it simply out of fear of the transgender activist community coming after them.

This means that mental health issues that people may be seeking help for can’t be properly helped thanks to activist communities spreading fear and intimidation. Sadly, there are many people who are wishing to have this kind of help. It was recently discovered that a massive community of thousands who regret their previous decisions about transgenderism are out there and not receiving the help and support they require.

If it seems like I’m peppering you with additional articles to read, it’s because I am. There are so many stories out there that give you a glimpse behind the veil that the mainstream media and LGBT activist groups have attempted to drape over your eyes. They want you to think that transgenderism is the future, and that those who embrace the lifestyle are happy and free.

If you were to look beyond it you would see people suffering from deep depression, mental illness, suicides, regrets, and unanswered calls for help. To be sure, not every person who is transgender suffers as badly as the next, but many, many do.

They want to stop pretending, but they’re not allowed to.

It’s clear at this point that many people are suffering from gender dysphoria, be they sufferers of mental illness or not. People are losing their careers — if not literally dying — because of a dysphoria mainstream society has chosen to adopt.

If you want to be transgender then that should be your choice, but that should be a lifestyle you adopt on your own. Stop forcing people to pretend along with you. If the mob still can’t handle those words despite all the information we now have, then they’re the uncaring, unaccepting and intolerant villains in this story. Not me.
