It's actually pretty impressive to watch so many aspects of our society start to make an about face so quickly. Still so much to do, but it feels like we're at least starting to turn the boat around.

Well now that the SJW's lost the election they seem to be doubling down on their insanity and it's pushing people away. Keep talking about how all white males are the devil, idiots.

They were being just as crazy pre-election. I think the major difference that the election made is that it showed regular people that they are actually still the majority and made everyone feel safer publicly endorsing common sense again. The election broke the illusion created by the media that everyone endorses "progressive" views and you are horrible and weird if you don't go along with it.

A lot of trans issues have been pretty anti-science for a while now. Reddit outright ban any scientific evidence that went against the liberal narrative. But any major decisions with political or legal implications seem to be more political than scientific anyway. It makes it hard to take anything that governing boards say at face value.

One of the biggest issues in these fields is that there must be a convergence between science, politics and popular culture.

Think about what it means to be "mentally ill". In some cases like schizophrenia, it may be obvious. In others, it's actually pretty complicated. The definition of "mental illness" can shift constantly, and much of this is based on ideology. In some psychiatric circles, everyone on this board fits a criteria of mental illness because ethnic/racial solidarity has been pushed in recent years as a mental illness (one which, not surprisingly, some ethnicities are exempt from).

So when homosexuality was removed as a mental illness from the DSM, it was based largely on politics. Gay rights groups were showing up to APA meetings and protesting loudly and making a big scene. They buckled to the pressure. The thing is that the reason it was ever a mental illness in the first place was based on cultural criteria. It violated centuries old social norms which were important to maintaining our society, and so it was a mental illness. But this isn't really a scientific criteria, its a social one.

This is one of the big things about psychology and psychiatry which makes it so susceptible to manipulation. It is one of the fields of science where science, culture, politics, religion all meet together. Because you cannot ethically conduct ontrolled experiments on humans (at least not very good ones), all you can get are correlations and people interpreting those correlations. And because the stakes are so high, possibly the future of humanity and how we see the human condition, there is massive political and economic pressure from different special interest groups so that scientists and medical doctors come to the 'right' conclusions.

A quick read up on the ACoP says their members are around 500 founded in 2002 while the American Academy of Pediatrics founded in 1930 has 64k members. Looks like they founded the ACoP as a fuck you to the AAP. While it's refreshing to see some medical professionals call out the ridiculous transgender BS, it doesn't seem like too many people take the ACoP very seriously.

Sanity is not statistical. Healthy reality is not a popularity contest.

The group was founded in 2002 by a group of pediatricians, including Joseph Zanga, a past president of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), as a protest against the AAP's support for adoption by gay couples.

They also recommend chemical castration for children. CHILDREN!! no one should give a fuck what these animals think.

The bottom line is this: Our opponents advocate a new scientifically baseless standard of care for children with a psychological condition (GD) that would otherwise resolve after puberty for the vast majority of patients concerned. Specifically, they advise: affirmation of children’s thoughts which are contrary to physical reality; the chemical castration of these children prior to puberty with GnRH agonists (puberty blockers which cause infertility, stunted growth, low bone density, and an unknown impact upon their brain development), and, finally, the permanent sterilization of these children prior to age 18 via cross-sex hormones.

"" Rates of suicide are twenty times greater among adults who use cross-sex hormones and undergo sex reassignment surgery, even in Sweden which is among the most LGBQT – affirming countries."""

Turns out a sex change doesn't cure depression or other psychological and emotional ailments. So, not only do you still feel like shit, you just irreversibly mutilated yourself and wasted everybody's time.

And now, into the bargain, it's possible you contributed to putting children on the same path.

Thank GOODNESS. That horrible "Bringing up Coy" or whatever documentary had my blood pressure through the fucking roof. These sick nuts claim the poor kid was not only aware of gender, but aware he was the 'wrong' gender. They ought to be in jail.

OH MY GOD I called my friend to vent and fume for like a fucking hour. At 18 MONTHS you knew??? BULLSHIT. I don't know what sort of sickness is going on with that mother, Munchausen by proxy, but those poor children are going to live the rest of their lives under the shadow of this. Sick, sick, deplorable. ☠

Doctors are trained monkeys, they don't really know what they are doing, and are required to do what 'the industry' tells them or risk losing their fake licenses.

Yep, it's pure political atmosphere. If Trump hadn't won, the outcome here would have been completely flipped.

fake license? what? bullshit.

as far as them being trained monkeys, i am inclined to believe that...

is this a fairly universal phenomenon or mostly western or is it just unique to the US?

I wonder if National Geographic is going to have anything to say in the future about the kids they exploited. Those that are pushing this agenda should be held to account. https://i.ytimg.com/vi/-G_IIx8QQOc/maxresdefault.jpg

I am a classical liberal with no party anymore it seems. There was a time where liberals were not delusional. Science will tell you that there are males and there are females. Period.
