Transition as Treatment: The Best Studies Show the Worst Outcomes

Apr 3, 2020 by

by Paul Dirks, Public Discourse: A pattern begins to emerge as we survey some of the best and longest outcome studies on gender transition: the longer the studies and the better the methods, the more negative the results. The treatment for this particular disorder is severe: lifelong experimental medicalization, sterilization, and complete removal of healthy body parts—a treatment Dr. Ray Blanchard, one of the world’s foremost sexologists, calls “palliative.” In spite of its severity, however,...

The latest gender studies literature is indistinguishable from satire

Mar 28, 2020 by

by Julie Bindel, Spectator: Reading the back cover of the soon to be released Me Not You: The trouble with mainstream feminism, I assumed Titania McGrath had churned out a new book. But on further inspection I realised it is in fact the latest from Alison Phipps, Professor of Gender Studies at Sussex University – a disciple of the ‘sex work is work’ and ‘trans women are women’ faux-feminism cult. This book has clearly been written for the hard-of-thinking. ‘Privileged white women use their...

The SNP’s trans-rights folly

Mar 20, 2020 by

Andrew Macdonald Powney, spiked: There is a significant row brewing within the Scottish National Party over its proposed reforms to the UK-wide Gender Recognition Act.

This is because the bill proposes: the scrapping of the current requirement for people to apply to the UK Gender Recognition Panel, allowing them to apply to the Registrar General for...

Male and Female He Created Them. And for a Good Reason

Mar 20, 2020 by

by Anthony Esolen, Crisis Magazine: It has been just six years since I wrote Defending Marriage: Twelve Arguments for Sanity, warning against the fantasy that two members of the same sex can marry one another, when they cannot even have sexual relations but can only mimic them. I founded my arguments not upon Scripture or the teaching of the Church—indeed I did not refer to them at all—but upon common observation, historical and cultural precedent, and the biology of male and female.
