Despite what it may have been like had I stayed in Missoula—I’m glad I left. Why?
A transgender Montana lawmaker was silenced for a second day Friday as her Republican colleagues refused to let her speak on the chamber’s floor until she apologizes for saying lawmakers would have “blood on their hands” if they passed a law to ban gender-affirming medical care for transgender youth.—AP News
His name is “Zooey”. He campaigned not a platform to benefit everyone from his area, but on the premise to get rid of laws that “hinder” transgenders like him from getting unvetted access to cross-hormone therapy, sex reassignment surgeries, being able to use an alias without the need to register it with the government, and to be able to claim whatever “gender identity” without having documentation to prove it. He spoke with very volatile language—which is why, until he apologizes for making his peers look bad, he’s not allowed to speak on the floor. He should be contesting his disagreement with these bills during the time meant to debate bills, not in front of TVs to push his own agenda and trying to make himself more famous at the expense of Montana’s legislature.
Zooey didn’t run for an elected position to serve the people; he just ran to serve a special interest group and make himself famous. I don’t want that in my representative, or in any politician!
I’ve been looking into all these “anti-trans” laws, but these are laws that are just countering the unfettered, unvetted access to HRT and SRS that cross-dressers are otherwise demanding, yet don’t follow the usual medical standards of care. Any other serious medical intervention would require vetting the potential patient to make sure they are mentally sound to make a decision, to make sure there’s no psychiatric or medical contraindications to minimize any potential negative side effects, getting second opinions. It makes no sense to allow impressionable teenagers to take puberty blockers and cross-hormone therapy—they have no idea what to do with their lives yet, but radicals insist they should be allowed to alter their bodies??
It’s one things for adults who suffer gender dysphoria to seek psychiatric evaluation and undergo a sex change, but it’s just a bad idea to let children and teenagers pursue it—even pioneers in trans medicine think these radicals have gone to far with allowing access to HRT and SRS:
A transgender psychologist who has helped hundreds of teens transition has warned that it has “gone too far” — and fears many are making life-changing decisions because it’s “trendy” and pushed on social media.
The parents come to Anderson, 71, in part because she herself is transgender. Anderson also stands out because she is one of the few clinical psychologists specializing in transgender youth to publicly question the sharp rise in adolescents coming out as trans or nonbinary.
She has helped hundreds of teens transition. But she has also come to believe that some children identifying as trans are falling under the influence of their peers and social media and that some clinicians are failing to subject minors to rigorous mental health evaluations before recommending hormones or surgeries.—Erica Anderson to the LA Times
Missoula, MT claims to champion itself as a “blue bubble” and “safe haven” for people from all over the western part of the state who are “ostracized” for being different. The problem with being a permanent “safe haven” is that it becomes an echo chamber, thus producing radicalism. Zooey is just a much a radical for the left as Alex Jones is for the right.
This further proves the inherent different between what it means to be transsexual and transgender; transsexuals are “transmedicalist” and think that candidates for a sex change should be fully vetted and undergo psychiatric evaluation and the real life test, before they’re even allowed the knife; whereas transgenders just rehash everything they hear, without looking into the science.
All this pushing teens into obtaining a sex change will only increase de-transitioning numbers in a few years’ time … and a shit ton of lawsuits.
