Expert Psychologist Specializing in Gender Dysphoria Suspended From Twitter For Publishing... Science

You will be made to care obey.

[Dr. Ray Blanchard] still affirmed the controversial idea that sex-change surgery is the "best treatment" for "carefully screened, adult patients, whose gender dysphoria has proven resistant to other forms of treatment," but he opposed "treating" children who may change their minds....

After this qualified statement of support, Blanchard explained his clinically-informed opinion that "sex change surgery should not be considered for any patient until that patient has reached the age of 21 years and has lived for at least two years in the desired gender role."

This call for a delay is controversial, as many transgender activists encourage hormonal and surgical treatments for minors, even children. Some researchers have received government grants to try such treatments on 8-year-old children, and a British transgender activist took her 15-year-old son to Thailand to get him castrated.

...

Although the Ph.D. psychologist supported sex-change surgery for 21-year-old adults whose gender dysphoria has persisted against other forms of treatment, he acknowledged that even post-operative transgender individuals are still biologically male or female beneath the surgical changes. No matter how good transgender surgery gets, a biological male still has X and Y chromosomes in virtually every cell of his body and a biological female still has two X chromosomes. No surgery or identity can alter this.

So trans-activists demanded that Twitter take his scalp, and Twitter -- which is now basically a trans-exclusive site -- gave them the scalp.

They've now reversed themselves, saying "it looks like we made an error," but only after a big furor and liberal-but-not-SJW Jess Signal repeatedly cited from the DSM-V manual, which calls gender dysphoria a mental illness, and begged Twitter to show its true ideological censorship stripes by banning him for quoting the best known current science on gender dysphoria.

You can see those tweets at the link.

Cue Baseball Cuck and David French and Jonah Cuckberg to tell us that Corporations Are Holy and must be completely free of the social pressure exerted on all real citizens (including the social pressure that corporations themselves exert on actual living Americans).

28 Is t not possible that twitter is being manipulated (no doubt with their full consent) by a few freaks using algorithms to artificially multiply their numbers and thus make it seem as though there is widespread support?

And don't we have some intelligence agencies that have the ability to loook into that possibility? Of course if we did, and they've gone full-on East German Stasi then whether they had the capability or not, they wouldn't use it.

I'm speculating of course but my current state of distrust in our government leads to these questions.

90 Expert Psychologist Specializing in Gender Dysphoria Suspended From Twitter For Publishing... Science

Two words that should never be used with "psychologist" are "expert" and "science".

Psychologists don't know squat about anything. your average con man knows more about the human mind than any psychologist.

The whole field of psychology is little more than a sick joke, these days. It's a shame because it should be very interesting ... but it's nothing but "the fashion of personality".

Academic Study Exposes Google's Left-Leaning Media Bias

According to data compiled by researchers from Northwestern University, Google's left-wing bias has been exposed

Researchers from Northwestern University have used an algorithm to study Google search results - and found an overwhelming left-leaning bias towards news outlets such as CNN and The New York Times, which the search giant repeatedly promoted in November, 2017 according to the Daily Mail.

Of the 6,302 articles that appeared in Google's Top Stories box during November, 2017, 62% were from outlets considered to be left-leaning. CNN constituted 10% of the news promoted, while the New York Times and Washington Post came in at 6.5% and 5.6% respectively.

Fox News, on the other hand, accounted for just 3% of promoted stories.


of course

Tammy Bruce was mentioning that if you tried to type in Google box, "Butti..." it completed Buttigieg for you.

But if you type in "Tru.." it does not fill in for Trump.

Not a chance.

Nearly all (86 percent) of the stories came from just 20 sources and of them, 62 percent were considered to be left-leaning.

I do not understand why CNN gets the majority of help. And they are still losing.

Facebook Shuts Down Pro-Populist Italian Pages Before EU Elections

Facebook has shut down 23 major populist Italian pages with 2.5 million followers just two weeks before the European elections.

According to Italian media, the majority of the pages supported the populist parties La Lega (The League) and the 5-Star Movement (M5S) -- who currently govern Italy in a temporary coalition.

Facebook has justified its dramatic move by claiming that the sites shared fake news, so-called "hate speech", and "divisive content" regarding immigrants, vaccines, and Jewish people.

Facebook used information from a report produced by a left-progressive NGO called Avaaz, which deals with "human rights" and environmental campaigns.

Hippocrates was against abortion. Seriously -- the actual Oath forbids being involved in abortion.

It also requires the physician to keep his mouth shut about anything he hears or sees while in a patient's home. Now, doctors don't do home visits anymore, but the idea was the doctor was not allowed to tell neighbors about the unfortunate thing he had to remove from your rectum, or to tell the police you admitted to owning a gun.

Pretty much, although that's not all. There's a lot of subtle and not-so-subtle psychology going on. Standing long-accepted logic on its head does a number on people and makes them doubt what they know is true. And when you do that to people, it opens the doorway to their mind which lets in all sorts of ideas that don't belong in there.

Naturally, that works best on the intellectually weak and those without a firm grip on reality. You know, the types of people that our edumacation system is busy churning out.

Gender identity is one of the myriad groups protected under this law and if you are caught with any kind of written material that the govt. can deem to be something that could incite "hate" against such groups will land you in prison. That also includes websites, comment areas etc.

If this discussion we are currently having would be taking place by a site owned by a Canadian, that Canadian could be charged and sent to prison, along with the commenters.

Twitter is simply advancing this same idea.

This professor mentioned that back in the 1970s Johns Hopkins was on the cutting (no pun intended) edge of this "sexual reassignment surgery". But something else Johns Hopkins did was to keep track of their patients, and what they found was that the surgery...didn't help. These people remained just as screwed up after their "sexual reassignment" as they were before. Still depressed, suicidal and all the rest. So by the early 1980s they stopped doing this procedure and it has remained so ever since.

So sayeth the scientists....IT DOESN'T WORK.

262 ST could be a pretty good movie if the writer and director even *minimally* adhered to Heinlein's storyline.

Excepting the tech and the Bugs, most of the story is about why men fight -- for their compatriots more than for country, though patriotism may send them into the military to begin with. Hollywood has told the same story many times since.

Besides, most of the book is Rico's basic training and OCS. There are all of three battles in the book, and I think the book ends right before they drop into the last one.

If you go back a generation, you will find that a lot of thinkers used to openly talk about so-called "Wicked Problems"; the definition of a "Wicked Problem" is that every solution causes more problems than it fixes.

example - starvation in sub-Saharan Africa is a "Wicked Problem". If you fix starvation, the fix increases overpopulation, which causes overcrowding and increases disease, all of which lead to social instability and civil wars, and you may end up with a higher death toll than if you'd done nothing.

Most of the really hard problems in the world are "Wicked Problems", which is why they haven't ever been fixed. People love the old line "well if we could send a man to the moon...." But sending a man to the moon was a simple engineering problem, with no negative consequences at all, other than being expensive. Easy peasy.

This professor mentioned that back in the 1970s Johns Hopkins was on the cutting (no pun intended) edge of this "sexual reassignment surgery". But something else Johns Hopkins did was to keep track of their patients, and what they found was that the surgery...didn't help. These people remained just as screwed up after their "sexual reassignment" as they were before. Still depressed, suicidal and all the rest.

I think this was actually something a bit different.

It wasn't sexual reassignment as a treatment for gender dysphoria. It was when a baby came out with genitalia so deformed and non-functional and Johns Hopkins had this perv mad-scientist doctor type who said, "hey, I got an idea, let's cut the dick completely off, redo the tissue into a fake vagina, treat him like a girl all his life, give him female hormones when he hits puberty, and no one will be the wiser." Well, the kids grew up depressed and suicidal. Unexpectedly! One of the guys who was butchered by this quack wrote book about it.

So that's what I think you're remembering.

Physicians != scientists

Any more than scientsts = physicians.

305 If you go back a generation, you will find that a lot of thinkers used
to openly talk about so-called "Wicked Problems"; the definition of a
"Wicked Problem" is that every solution causes more problems than it
fixes.



example - starvation in sub-Saharan Africa is a "Wicked Problem".
If you fix starvation, the fix increases overpopulation, which causes
overcrowding and increases disease, all of which lead to social
instability and civil wars, and you may end up with a higher death toll
than if you'd done nothing.


Overpopulation = another hoax. This planet isn't anywhere close to being full. Not by a long shot. And that was proven by the study a few years ago that said everybody on Earf could fit into high-rises in Texas and fed by a state the size of Oklahoma. Naturally, all that would be shoulder-to-shoulder, but it did prove a point even if it was off by 10 or 15%.

Any lie will do to promote the acquisition of power, regardless of how little sense it makes. The bigger the pile of bullshit, the better it seems to work.

306 @244. I hated "Robocop" -- gore and splatter justified by a thin story. Nothing I've ever seen from Verhoven has changed my mind that he's primarily interested in pushing his political fetishes over telling a good story.
-------------------------
According to Voerhoven himself, Robocop's success was a complete accident. It was apparently supposed to be a movie that was so violent that it was funny.

307 I guess the innocent days of these fellas dressing up like the Rockettes for a weekend of highstepping are over.
