Transgenderism Is A Mental Illness, Not A Civil Rights Issue!

Townhall.com ^ | 9-30-2014 | John Hawkins 

If someone came to a doctor and asked him to cut off a perfectly healthy arm because it just felt "wrong" for the arm to be there, should the doctor do it? This isn't an idle question because this does happen with a mental illness called Body Integrity Identity Disorder (BIID). People who have it feel as if they're not supposed to have a certain body part, like an arm or leg. As a general rule, doctors won't remove a healthy body part; so some of these poor deluded people crush, mangle, burn, or otherwise deliberately destroy their own arms or legs in order to get a surgeon to slice them off.

This raises a question: Are surgeons who refuse to remove healthy limbs from people with BIID doing them a service because they're mentally ill or are they denying them their civil rights? MOST of us would say that a surgeon who refuses to cut off a healthy leg is doing the right thing.

Of course, not everyone would agree. In fact, there are some people who will tell you that mental illness is a “super power.”

Members of the mad pride movement do not always agree on their aims and intentions. For some, the objective is to continue the destigmatization of mental illness. A vocal, controversial wing rejects the need to treat mental afflictions with psychotropic drugs and seeks alternatives to the shifting, often inconsistent care offered by the medical establishment. Many members of the movement say they are publicly discussing their own struggles to help those with similar conditions and to inform the general public.

…Some Icarus Project members argue that their conditions are not illnesses, but rather, “dangerous gifts” that require attention, care and vigilance to contain. “I take drugs to control my super powers,” Mr. DuBrul said.

It’s easy to laugh at this silly idea. Hearing voices or thinking the CIA is using a mind control ray on you is supposed to be a super power? Seriously?

But, this is a relatively small movement that happily hasn’t gained wide societal acceptance. Meanwhile, something just as ridiculous, the idea that you can change your sex, is accepted by many people in society.

There are people demanding that we change the birth certificates of people who’ve had sex reassignment surgery to reflect the gender they now claim to be. Children are being told to use whatever bathroom they feel most comfortable using. Kids under the age of 10 are being given drugs and treatment to prepare them for sex change surgery later on.

This is what happens when you cater to a pathology instead of treating it.

If you are born a man, you can mutilate yourself and take female hormones, but you can’t become a woman. If you are born a woman, you can mutilate yourself and take male hormones, but you can’t become a man.

If you’re a man who mutilates yourself to look like a woman, you’re not going to actually be a woman. You’re also probably not going to be the attractive fantasy you imagined yourself being because you’ve had male hormones pumping through your body for a lifetime. Your relationships are probably going to be screwed up because most men are going to view you as another man. Even if you do somehow meet a guy you like who isn’t using you to fulfill some forbidden fantasy for a night, what happens when he finds out? The relationship is probably over. The sex probably isn’t going to be good either because your groin has been cut to pieces and refashioned. Additionally, your mortality rate will be 51% higher than the general population because of suicide and all the female chemicals you’ve pumped into your body. In fact, the suicide rate for people who are transgender is 25 times that of the general population according to the American Psychological Association.

Certainly, there are some people who are happy and successful after having gender reassignment surgery, just as there are happy and successful people in every other walk of life, but they are exceptions to the rule. What about everybody else? Imagine mutilating yourself and realizing that it didn’t make any difference or worse yet, that it was a HUGE MISTAKE. What do you do then?

When children who reported transgender feelings were tracked without medical or surgical treatment at both Vanderbilt University and London's Portman Clinic, 70%-80% of them spontaneously lost those feelings. Some 25% did have persisting feelings; what differentiates those individuals remains to be discerned.

We at Johns Hopkins University—which in the 1960s was the first American medical center to venture into "sex-reassignment surgery"—launched a study in the 1970s comparing the outcomes of transgendered people who had the surgery with the outcomes of those who did not. Most of the surgically treated patients described themselves as "satisfied" by the results, but their subsequent psycho-social adjustments were no better than those who didn't have the surgery. And so at Hopkins we stopped doing sex-reassignment surgery, since producing a "satisfied" but still troubled patient seemed an inadequate reason for surgically amputating normal organs.

There’s nothing shameful about having a mental illness. If you break your leg, you go to a doctor and get it fixed. If you have some form of mental illness, you go to a psychologist or psychiatrist and get it treated as best you can. Sometimes you can be cured. Sometimes it’s a lifetime struggle, but all of us have different challenges to deal with and that’s okay.

On the other hand, you can rant about “bigots,” “gay pride” and “civil rights” all day long, but it doesn’t change the fact that encouraging troubled people to permanently disfigure themselves instead of working through their issues with a mental health professional is a thoughtless, cruel, and monstrous act.

Obama turning U.S. military into illegal alien refuge!

Examiner ^ | September 26, 2014 | Jim Kouri 

Barack Obama's Defense Department on Thursday announced its plan to recruit illegal aliens, who they admit are undocumented, to join the United States Armed Forces, according to a statement released by the Pentagon. Critics are unhappy with this latest announcement, with some claiming the American armed services will become more like the French Foreign Legion, which historically allow fugitives from justice and others to join up with no required documentation.
...
What are they trying to so in this administration? Turn our excellent military into a knock-off of the French Foreign Legion? Obama, who has never been anything more than a fast talking community organizer, wants to arm foreigners who are total strangers? It's a slap in the face to the brave men and women in our armed service

The Difference Between Winners And Whiners: The midterms will provide a valuable object lesson!

The American Spectator ^ | September 29, 2014 | David Catron 


Democrats think conservatives in general, and Tea Partiers in particular, are stupid. Here’s how to reinforce that belief: Sit out the 2014 congressional elections because your favorite candidate lost his primary bid to an establishment Republican. If you live in Kansas, for example, you can suck your thumb while Democrat ringer Greg Orman beats Republican Senator Pat Roberts. If you’re a Kentucky conservative, you can stay home and bitch about Mitch while Alison “Rubberstamp” Grimes heads to Washington. If you’re in Mississippi, you can stay mad at Thad and allow Travis “no repeal” Childers to win. That’ll show those RINOs!
It isn’t necessary to speculate about the results of such petulance. We are already suffering the consequences of a similar tantrum. As R. Emmett Tyrrell pointed out last week, about 4 million conservatives declined to participate in the 2012 presidential election: “The wise psephologists tell us that these conservatives did not like Romney. He was too bland for the Tea Partiers.… Frankly, I do not know why they stayed home given the choice between a community organizer and a former governor.” Regardless of the rationale, those abstainers are responsible for the domestic corruption and foreign policy disasters of the last two years....

RINO-Corporatist/Political Profiteer Karl Rove Escalating (Failed) War with TEA Party


And that's just fineno time like the present for that inevitable defining battle with the wretched political-consultant class that has driven the GOP over the cliff for going-on eight years now. The victors in this power struggle (my $ says constitutional conservatives) will have momentum into the 2014 elections, with time to consolidate Republican power and roll Hillary to the curb in 2016.

The only reason the unloved RINO racket Rove operates is even still around is the mechanism they've established that draws large corporate (and other special interest) donations, then utilizes that mountain of cash to control incumbents/primaries/elections and line-the-pockets of lavishly-overpaid professional drivel generators... like Karl 'Pop-n-Fresh' Rove, ferinstance.Ask the average Republican voter, and they wonder how such a failed consultant could retain major GOP influence with next-to-no actual grassroots support.



Now the Rovester and his minions are prepping the ground for their next chosen son, the blobular Chris Christie. But early polls show conservatives ain't goin for it, not after this same self-serving failure rammed Romney down our throats last time with BS promises of victory. 

It wasn't just Mittens doing a face-plant, Rove completely tanked in 2012 with those he and his Big Bux donors chose to back. We're talking spendinghalf a billion dollars to lose 67% of the races in which Rove PACs were involved. 

Many of these GOP candidates were weak-willed tools willing to do as Rovewould have told them to, just as long as he kept them in their seat. Unlike the TEA Party-driven 2010 election, 2012 voters responded with a resounding 'no thanks' and here we are today, with the influence/power of the Republican Party at the lowest of lows.


'Perfect candidate' Mitt Romney's lame performance in the presidential campaign -vs a feeble, radical, incompetent incumbent- made clear to all the narrow appeal of unprincipled Republican squishes. Obviously, most in the Party don't want what Rove's clients are attempting to purchase (open borders, cheap money, corporate welfare) through him, so as opposition to Obammunism continues to build- we need to pivot to a genuine antidote for Obama's poison... not still more crony-capitalism and 'Obama Lite'.


If we have to boycott Rove donors' businesses, mobilize TEA Party patriots/$ in primary districts under attack by American Crossroads (or other shady Rovite Super-PACs), or even VOTE DEMOCRAT in some rare instances to strategically remove those who've chosen to do battle with the base of their own party... so be it. 

No reason for conservatives to feel bad about breaking Reagan's 11th Commandment as we set-out to destroy the Rove machine, either... after all, he declared war on us, and now that this evil Boll Weevil is establishing serrepticious front groups to hide all the 2014 dirty tricks that he's drawn up on that stupid little whiteboard of his... all I can say is 'bring it on' and screw you Karl Rove, when the dust has settled -and Christie gets crushed in the primary- history will surely treat you like the Vichy Republican p.o.s. that you are.

'Ultra-Right', 'Extreme' John Birch Society Saw It ALL Coming Down the Pike . . .

50 years later,  history is proving them right-
as it will soon enough the TEA Party


The John Birch Society was founded in 1958 by Robert Welch, a retired candy manufacturer who saw collectivism as the main threat to Western Civilization, with useful-idiot-type liberals serving as "secret communist traitors" that provided cover for a move towards world socialist government   The organization took its name from an American Baptist missionary (and US intelligence officer) who was shot dead by Red Chinese forces in August 1945, therefore it was that John Birch was honored as 'first fatality of the Cold War'. 

The agenda was pro-family, pro-Christian, anti-communist, anti-UN, and anti-big government, while treating the principles of the US Constitution/Bill of Rights as sacrosanct. The JBS charter was based on opposing plans of what they said were a small group of 'Insiders' working surreptitiously both in and outside of government to bring the this country's free-market enterprise system to it's knees while incrementally stripping America's sovereignty and inflicting a socalist society upon our people. But they also felt both the USSR and US governments were under the influence of the same international cabal, one keen to bring about a collectivist 'New World Order'... all orchestrated from behind the scenes and by-hook-or-by-crook.

Naturally such conspiracy theory brought massive derision 
-particularly from those it exposed- and the John Birch Society was mocked as paranoid and delusional, among other things. But just listen to what the man had to say back then in '73 -most of this quoted from their 1958 charter- and you tell me he's not talking about the internationalist-socialistSorobama regime that's currently ripping this country a new one...
John Birch Society


Agenda of the NWO 'Insiders', according to JBS (1958):
  • surrender of American sovereignty to UN
    and other international organizations
  • greatly expanded government spending... 
    'as wastefully as possible'
  • higher (and then much higher) taxes
  • increasingly unbalanced budget-
    despite tax increases
  • wild inflation of our currency and
    destruction of our savings
  • greatly increased socialistic controls over every operation of our economy... and every activity
    of our daily lives
  • correspondingly huge increases in federal bureaucracy, and both cost and reach of government 
  • far more centralization of power in Washington
    (and gradual erosion of states' power)
  • creeping federalization of education system
  • anti-war propaganda, "peace" at all costs...
    thus inevitably on enemy terms (of course)
     

Just 'cuz you're paranoid
doesn't mean they're not after you:


If you find that level of conspiracy theory to much to swallow, consider this: The second head of the John Birch Society was Congressman Larry McDonald from Georgia, who was killed on September 1, 1983, when the Soviet Union shot down KAL 007... the only congressman killed by the Soviets during the Cold War.

Who are the Real Liberals?

American Thinker ^ | September 20, 2014 | Benjamin Aguda 

A few hundred years ago, humanity went through a remarkable period of transformation, the Enlightenment. A number of different developments enabled this transformation to take place, and the impact of the Enlightenment has been tremendous. One area where the Enlightenment had particularly strong influence was in political theory. Before the Enlightenment, it was common knowledge that all men were natural slaves. We were slaves to our parents and slaves to our rulers in the same way that we were naturally slaves to God. This ancient doctrine justified the despotic political systems that had existed in one form or another throughout most of history.
The Enlightenment changed this tradition. Enlightenment thinkers began to see the world as dominated by physical forces put in place by a benevolent God. Man became a naturally free and rational creature who can choose his own life. Man has dignity; he is intrinsically and individually valuable. He owns himself and the products of his labor. His rational nature enables him to build a free society where he is not a slave to his rulers. This philosophy, the belief that man has inherent dignity, is now known as Classical Liberalism, and it was the philosophical inspiration for The American Revolution.
Our founding fathers were steeped in the liberal tradition. One classical liberal that was particularly influential to the founding of our country was an Englishman named John Locke (1632-1704). Locke was so influential that Thomas Jefferson listed him as one of the most influential men in his own thinking and was even accused of plagiarizing Locke while writing the Declaration of Independence.
