Howdy. I'm a FTMTF detransitioner, and felt that there wasn't as many videos online about detransition as there should be, so I have uploaded my video to the mix. Enjoy. P.s. The audio and video gets a bit choppy towards the last 10 minutes, so apologies. If you have any questions, leave them down below and I'll try to answer them!

Transgender Biden nominee ducks Rand Paul's questioning on gender mutilation at confirmation hearing

Michael Lee 21 hrs ago



“Genital mutilation has been nearly universally condemned. Genital mutilation has been condemned by the WHO, the United Nations children's fund, and the United Nations population fund. According to the WHO, it is recognized internationally as a violation of human rights. Genital mutilation is considered particularly egregious because as the WHO notes, it is nearly always carried out on minors and is a violation of the rights of children,” Paul said during the hearing. “It is typically not performed by force, but as WHO notes, by social convention, social norm, the social pressure to conform and do what others do and have been doing, as well as to be accepted socially, and the fear of being rejected by the community.”

“American culture is now normalizing the idea that minors can be given hormones to prevent their biological development of their secondary sexual characteristics,” Paul continued. “Dr. Levine, you have supported both allowing minors to be given hormone blockers to prevent them from going through puberty, as well as surgical destruction of a minor's genitalia.”

Paul went on to argue that many children with gender dysphoria eventually have the condition resolve on its own, asking Levine if adults should interrupt that process in minors.

Levine, a transgender woman who rose to prominence as Pennsylvania’s top health official during the coronavirus pandemic, sidestepped Paul’s main question.

“Thank you for your interest in this question,” Levine responded. “Transgender medicine is a very complex and nuanced field with robust research and standards of care that have been developed. If I'm fortunate enough to be confirmed as the assistant secretary of health, I will look forward to working with you and your office and coming to your office to discuss the particulars of the standards of care for transgender medicine."

Not happy with Levine’s answer, Paul continued to press the nominee on the harm such interventions can cause to minors.

“The specific question was about minors, let’s be a little more specific since you evaded the question,” Paul shot back. “Do support the government intervening to override the parents' consent to give a child puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and or amputation surgery of breasts and genitalia. You have said that you’re willing to accelerate the protocols for street kids. I’m alarmed that poor kids with no parents who are homeless and distraught, you would just go through this and allow that to happen to a minor.”

Paul then recounted the story of a 14-year-old girl who received sex-altering treatment but regretted that decision as an adult, pressing Levine to answer...

This is not an new issue. Of cours Homosexual/Bisexual men will have some issues with Trans. I suspect "lesbians" have and will have issues...

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/gay-campground-banning-transgender-men

Gay campground under fire for banning transgender men from the park

A gay campground in Michigan is under fire for having a rule that bans transgender people who identify as male from joining the membership-only park.

“Camp Boomerang is a private, membership-only rv park/campground that allows only ‘guys,’” wrote park co-owner Bryan Quinn in a since-deleted Facebook post. “A ‘guy,’ in terms of this discussion, is defined as a person with a penis, [who] presents himself as male and has a state-issued ID that says ‘male.'”

“It is our hope that everyone who visits Camp Boomerang enjoys a comfortable, safe, non-confrontational environment going forward,” Quinn continued. “Being a ‘private membership only’ entity allows us the ability to build a like-minded atmosphere. We don’t mean for this to come off as a ‘like it or leave it’ attitude, but we feel it’s necessary for everyone to know exactly what our vision is for Camp Boomerang.”

The park's co-owner said he understood the sensitivity of the topic, saying that the post was only an attempt to clarify the camp’s rules.

...


“We understand this statement, unfortunately, may not make everyone happy, but feel it needs to be clarified,” Quinn said.

His prediction that not everyone would be happy was quickly realized, with one user asking whether the camp would be requiring “penis checks” in order to be admitted.

“Listen guys, we NEVER said anything about ‘penis checks,’ but let’s be real here,” Quinn responded. “If we let women that act like men in, and they go naked at the pool, that’s when it’s obvious that there’s no penis. Sorry to put it bluntly. But if you don’t like the rules, quietly leave.”

That response didn’t sit well with another commenter, who accused Quinn of being “cowardly” for turning off comments without giving others the chance to express their displeasure with the camp’s rules...

I was working as an RN for a very large medical entity which owned numerous hospitals and insured(s) 25% of the CA population. This was 1992, I believe. It was in one of their hospitals in a more conservative town 20 miles from more liberal Berkeley/Oakland.

They announced that the Physician-in-Chief was undergoing gender reassignment treatment and after a leave would continue in their current position w/a female first name.

Wow, that was brave of both the physician and the Corp. in that more conservative town and @ that time. I was kinda proud of how this physician was supported by most.

I've read things that early on and for a long while gay men and women felt that trans (and drag queens/kings) were not their issue and didn't feel it should have included in what they were

I think guidelines are being slowly worked out.

I have not read widely about this but did notice there is a case where a

They're hyper-lesbians - lesbians who only like woman born as woman.

That makes those who call them transphobic hyper-lesbian-phobic. lol

Hacsi Horvath is an expert in systematic review methods, assessing bias in research studies
and evaluating the certainty of evidence across studies in a given body of scientific literature. He is an adjunct Lecturer in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the University of California, San Francisco. Horvath formerly identified as transgender and presented as a woman for more than a dozen years.

Former Transgender Activist: Transitioning Is Dangerous—Especially For Youth

he brought up Dr. Joanne Olsen Kennedy...


Johanna Olson-Kennedy is an American physician who specializes in the care of children and teenagers with gender dysphoria and youth with HIV and chronic pain. She is board-certified in pediatrics and adolescent medicine and is the medical director of the Center for Transyouth Health and Development at Children's Hospital Los Angeles.[1][2]

Olson-Kennedy has co-authored multiple studies on transgender youth.[3][4][5] She also has been interviewed for multiple news pieces.[6][7][8][9] In a 2016 Reuters article, Olson-Kennedy said "I support a social transition for a kid who is in distress and needs to live in a different way." She said that out of approximately 1,000 patients that she had seen, only one reverted to their sex assigned at birth.[10] She opposes mandatory psychological assessments for transgender children seeking treatment, saying in a 2018 Atlantic magazine article: "I don’t send someone to a therapist when I’m going to start them on insulin."



Johanna Olson-Kennedy speaks

The Centre for Transgender Health in Los Angeles had its beginnings in the Division of Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine HIV clinic, when according to Olson-Kennedy, transwomen (a high-risk group) began to say “can you do my hormones too?” Following an expansion of services in 2000, Olson-Kennedy joined the team in 2006. In 2012 the gender clinic became a recognised centre separate from the HIV clinic. As Olson-Kennedy says:

“If you build it they will come”

Younger and younger children began to come. The team of Health Educators, all trans adults, go out into the community, to schools and places of worship “where the youth are.” Five new young people attend the clinic every week, and there is a similar trajectory as with the Tavistock in London, in terms of the male/female ratio: a huge rise in teenage girls and a rise in non-binary identities. Services include provision of blockers and hormones, mental health and psychiatric care, financial advice and support to change documents and various support groups for young people and family members, including a play-group for “little kids who are gender diverse.” 1,400 3 – 25 year-olds are currently using the service.

Listening to Olson-Kennedy speak about her practice gives us a clear picture of what NHS gender identity services would look like if based on the beliefs and demands of support groups such as Mermaids, GIRES and Gendered Intelligence. Olson-Kennedy is perhaps the most influential ‘gender doctor’ out of many who are already putting into practice a gender-affirmative and informed consent model across the United States. The dominant themes that emerge about her work originate from her seemingly evangelical belief in the presence of an ‘innate gender’ inside of all of us; a gender stereotyped soul (see image above: guns or glitter? Wheels or heels?) which demands expression not just through clothes and pronouns but physically through the body with blockers and hormones.

NY will soon make it easier for trans youths to delay puberty

Nov 27, 2016 2:58 PM EST

Matt Pasini was sitting in a therapist’s office with his parents just before his 15th birthday, a year after he first came out as trans, when he told them: “I can’t keep living like this.”

Pasini, who grew up in Queens, New York, was grappling with gender dysphoria, which the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-V), describes as a feeling of distress caused by identifying as a gender other than the one you were assigned at birth. That distress was getting worse with puberty: people misgendered him in public, he was self-conscious, and every month, his menstrual cycle would cause a mental crisis.

“It became a constant reminder that I was born in the wrong body and I didn’t have any control over that,” Pasini, now 19, told the NewsHour.

“Relieving gender dysphoria for a lot of these kids is like unleashing them finally into the world, to go be themselves.” — Dr. Andrew Goodman of the Callen-Lorde Community Health Center

Puberty can cause enormous stress for transgender youth, adding to their already-high rates of anxiety and depression. But relief has come for some in the form of puberty blockers. Originally developed to allay early onset puberty, these drugs give transgender youths more time to decide how to move forward in their transition. Lupron and other puberty blockers are rarely covered by insurance for people under 18 — but in New York, that could change as early as December, potentially making a difference for trans youth in the state.

Along with his parents, therapist and doctor, Pasini, decided after that session that he would start Lupron, one of the most common puberty blockers. Pasini said he noticed a change in how he carried himself, how he interacted with others and how he felt about his body. “I didn’t have as much anxiety in school because of that, and I felt somewhat more comfortable in my body,” he said. “It made me feel a lot more confident. … It made me feel a lot less depressed about myself.”

For some, a ‘life-saving’ treatment

Twelve states and Washington, D.C., cover transition-related health care under Medicaid for transgender people. But most often, that coverage is for adults, so treatments that address gender dysphoria in children remains a gray area.

In 2014, Oregon became the first state to cover puberty blockers for youths under Medicaid, and California’s Department of Managed Health Care has also ordered insurers to cover care related to gender transition. But Dr. Johanna Olson-Kennedy, a pediatrician and medical director of the Center for Transyouth Health and Development at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, said denials are still common.

READ NEXT: Here’s what most people get wrong about the transgender community

New York is the latest state to grapple with the issue, with three recent court decisions extending Medicaid coverage to trans people. In March 2015, the New York State Department of Health announced that Medicaid could cover some “medically necessary” services, a common designation used by insurers. Four months later, U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff ruled that Medicaid must also cover procedures the state had previously called “cosmetic,” including breast augmentation and tracheal shaving. However, these decisions still excluded coverage for people under 18 years old.

That changed in October of this year, when the New York State Department of Health filed a proposed rule that would extend its Medicaid coverage to treating gender dysphoria in individuals under 18. The department cannot officially adopt the rule until Dec. 5, after it has considered public comments. But the New York State Department of Health intends to move forward, according to a spokesman.

The recent change in New York “is a great thing for transgender young people,” Kim Forte of the Legal Aid Society said. Her group along with The Sylvia Rivera Law Project and Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP brought a lawsuit against the New York State Department of Health in 2014 that resulted in New York’s expansions of Medicaid coverage for trans people.

“The truth of the matter is that this care can be life-saving for some people,” Forte said.

US Army may nix gender-neutral fitness tests as women overwhelmingly fail, says biological differences matter
.
The Pentagon may reverse the U.S. Army's new "gender-neutral" physical fitness test for its male and female soldiers because more than half of female soldiers are failing the test.
.

According to a Saturday report from the Telegraph, the Army is "considering a reversal of its new gender-neutral physical test to instead include different evaluation categories for men and women."

A study from the Pentagon noted that at least 65% of female soldiers were failing the military's Army Combat Fitness Test. At least 90% of male soldiers passed the test.

In response to the study, Congress has halted implementation of the new test, and the military is looking into whether the test is actually fair.


"In the ACFT there are six events — the maximum deadlift, a standing power throw, hand-release pushups, a spring, drag and carry, leg tuck, and a two-mile run," the Telegraph noted. "To pass the test those taking it must score at least 360 points out of a possible 600, and those who achieve higher scores are more likely to be promoted."

Biological male wins female beauty pageant in Nevada


A transgender person is now one step closer to being crowned Miss USA.

Kataluna Enriquez, a biological male, won the Miss Silver State USA pageant this week, an event considered the biggest preliminary competition for the Miss Nevada USA pageant, KVVU-TV reported.

The outlet called it a "monumental win" for Enriquez, who will now move on to the statewide competition in the pageant circuit that leads to Miss USA and, eventually, the Miss Universe competition.

The pageants, collectively run by the Miss Universe Organization, were once owned by former President Donald Trump and are widely recognized for awarding among the most coveted crowns in the pageant world.

Dr. Levine is a dedicated, highly competent public servant who excels at effectively communicating complex information to the public in language that is easy to understand. Sen. Paul's questioning of her was demeaning and mean-spirited. I have mixed feelings and nuanced beliefs about trans women and girls competing with women and girls in athletics and other issues regarding gender identity and balancing rights of transgender people with the rights of people of faith and religious denominations. However, civility and recognizing the humanity and dignity of every person should be foundational principles when discussing any contentious issue.

Transgender Biden nominee ducks Rand Paul's questioning on gender mutilation at confirmation hearing

Michael Lee 21 hrs ago



“Genital mutilation has been nearly universally condemned. Genital mutilation has been condemned by the WHO, the United Nations children's fund, and the United Nations population fund. According to the WHO, it is recognized internationally as a violation of human rights. Genital mutilation is considered particularly egregious because as the WHO notes, it is nearly always carried out on minors and is a violation of the rights of children,” Paul said during the hearing. “It is typically not performed by force, but as WHO notes, by social convention, social norm, the social pressure to conform and do what others do and have been doing, as well as to be accepted socially, and the fear of being rejected by the community.”

“American culture is now normalizing the idea that minors can be given hormones to prevent their biological development of their secondary sexual characteristics,” Paul continued. “Dr. Levine, you have supported both allowing minors to be given hormone blockers to prevent them from going through puberty, as well as surgical destruction of a minor's genitalia.”

Paul went on to argue that many children with gender dysphoria eventually have the condition resolve on its own, asking Levine if adults should interrupt that process in minors.

Levine, a transgender woman who rose to prominence as Pennsylvania’s top health official during the coronavirus pandemic, sidestepped Paul’s main question.

“Thank you for your interest in this question,” Levine responded. “Transgender medicine is a very complex and nuanced field with robust research and standards of care that have been developed. If I'm fortunate enough to be confirmed as the assistant secretary of health, I will look forward to working with you and your office and coming to your office to discuss the particulars of the standards of care for transgender medicine."

Not happy with Levine’s answer, Paul continued to press the nominee on the harm such interventions can cause to minors.

“The specific question was about minors, let’s be a little more specific since you evaded the question,” Paul shot back. “Do support the government intervening to override the parents' consent to give a child puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and or amputation surgery of breasts and genitalia. You have said that you’re willing to accelerate the protocols for street kids. I’m alarmed that poor kids with no parents who are homeless and distraught, you would just go through this and allow that to happen to a minor.”

Paul then recounted the story of a 14-year-old girl who received sex-altering treatment but regretted that decision as an adult, pressing Levine to answer...
