I’ve noticed three major categories of parents involved in this disproportionately exploding trend:
People who enforce rigid, outdated sex roles. Many have point-blank said they’d rather their child become the opposite sex than be potentially gay, and wouldn’t let them do anything associated with the other sex. These are the type of people who refuse to let a boy wear pink or let a girl have short hair, who think dolls, long hair, tea parties, pierced ears=girl, sports, short hair, toy cars, rough housing=boy. This really is 21st century “conversion therapy.”
SJWs who think they’re being such awesome, liberal, accepting activists, and don’t even question the media narrative. (I’m extremely liberal myself, so it takes quite a lot for me to say anyone else is taking it to an extreme!)
Munchausen by proxy, which sometimes overlaps with the SJWs. You can see a lot of this in many of the parents who go on the media circuit, like the parents of “Jazz Jennings” (real name Jaron Bloshinsky). They’re getting all this attention for parading their child to the world, and giving the child off-label puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones.
Since “Jazz” has become such a celebrity, let’s look at his story more closely. It’s like he and his family are going from a checklist of stereotypical “girl” things, like slumber parties, long hair, pink, Barbies, stuffed animals, cheerleading, giggling about boys with 20 best friends, makeup, short shorts, and shopping. His parents couldn’t let their son be a feminine boy, so they made him into a girl. If they’d just let him be himself, he either would’ve grown out of his gender-nonconformity or come out as gay.
Behind the scenes, his mother has admitted “Jazz” is being groomed and fed false memories. Most tellingly, “She only knows transition is best because that’s what adults have told her.”
“Jazz” likes to say he has a “girl brain” in a boy body, though current scientific research shows there’s not much difference between men’s and women’s brains. “Jazz” really means he was led to believe only girls like pink, sparkles, mermaids, and long hair. I wonder what he’d think of me, someone who can only tolerate dark pinks, never had a Barbie, rarely ever wears makeup, hates going to the mall, and never got into the media hype my agemates did regarding boygroups like NKOTB and N’Sync.
Children don’t understand what kinds of longterm consequences they’ll face for having to take these drugs for the rest of their lives, least of all what it means they’ll be permanently sterilized and can never have biological children. “Jazz” has seriously said he wants to use his older sister as a broodmare, using rather flippant, vulgar language to describe artificial insemination, pregnancy, and birth.
Five-year-old Melanie/Tom in a fairly recent Guardian article talked about how “When I am older and start taking medicine to grow a willy.” That child cannot understand what phalloplasty actually entails, and how even the best artificially-constructed phallus will never work just like a real one.
It was only 6 months ago or so I discovered an MTF’s neovagina needs regular dilation (daily at first, then weekly, with sex counting as dilation). Otherwise, it’ll close up, since it’s a permanent wound. Only dilation keeps it open to the desired width and depth. How then could the average child know about this? I wouldn’t even compare this to always wearing jewelry in a piercing you want to keep, since all you have to do is get it repierced or tapered back open. You don’t need surgery and won’t risk infection (assuming everything’s normal) if your septum or navel is devoid of jewelry for too long.
