“TRANSGENDER” PSYCHOSIS (and TRANSGENDER IDEOLOGY)

Psychosis [sī-kō-sis]:  a major mental disorder, characterized by a disintegration of personality and delusions which lose touch with reality.

The "transgender" flight from reality applies to SRVUSD activism in particular.   There is much to report, and much to be noted in response to SRVUSD's related actions and inactions, involving children as targets....

Even a New York Times opinion columnist, looking comprehensively at "gender-affirming care," recognizes the irresponsibility involved frequently in gender dysphoria diagnoses and the response to same: 



"Many parents of kids who consider themselves trans say their children were introduced to transgender influencers on YouTube or TikTok, a phenomenon intensified for some by the isolation and online cocoon of Covid.  Others say their kids learned these ideas in the classroom, as early as elementary school, often in child-friendly ways through curriculums supplied by trans rights organizations, with concepts like the Gender Unicorn or the Genderbread person." (February 2nd, 2024)

 

If you don't believe that SRVUSD engages itself in such dangerous manipulation of vulnerable young minds, or if you think that such radical, grossly inappropriate activism is only a late-breaking phenomenon here, then you should review the evidence at this site's "Queering the Classroom" and "Queering the Classroom II" pages.  See also the 2018 news report on Rancho Romero Elementary's transgender activism.   

 

But let's jump for now, momentarily, to a pivotal point that is expanded further below, as it relates to SRVUSD's  promotion and facilitation of transgender psychosis:  "The vast majority of children (4 out of 5) who believe they are 'transgendered' will grow out of that perception  unless they are 'socially transitioned.'  Then, virtually NONE grow out of it.  Yet SRVUSD facilitates such 'social transitions,' and conceals them from the same parents who would have to provide permission for children involved to be given an aspirin." 

Those are the same parents said frequently by SRVUSD administrators to be the District's "partners."

An important background point in time:  In November, 2020, Country Club Instructional Coach Korby Saunders and then-Principal Christy Glaser (who is now employed by the Contra Costa County Office of Education) discussed “their experiences of queering the classroom” in a presentation for the “National Council of Teachers of English.”  Below is a copy of the NCTE program guide for that presentation [arrow marker added]:

Just two months later, Saunders transmitted an email in which she claimed that even TK (transition kindergarten) children (i.e., 4 and 5-year-olds) have a right to conceal alleged sexual orientation or gender identity from parents/guardians, and that teachers are to uphold such “rights.”  Redactions are those added by SRVUSD: 

That radical policy is confirmed in the SRVUSD Board’s Administrative Regulation #5145.3, and by SRVUSD administrative officials in an email.  That regulation utilizes misleading boilerplate language from the activist California School Board Association (CSBA).  The same language has been incorporated by school districts up and down the state, utilizing the same AR 5145.3 policy designation.   That regulation is part of one district's behavior which Southern District of California Federal Court has characterized as causing "a trifecta of harm."

So understand what this means: SRVUSD personnel believe it's OK for them to manipulate and co-opt vulnerable, impressionable children in captive-audience “queering” classrooms — and then to conceal kids’ supposed new “gender identities” or “sexual orientations” from the kids’ own parents, making use of a "Gender Support Plan" articulated by "Gender Spectrum," a gender-bender promotion outfit.  

This occurs even if there is no allegation or even suspicion that parents might abuse a confused, gender-dysphoric child — and can occur with even SRVUSD's youngest children, the 4 and 5-year-olds just learning to tie their shoes.

SRVUSD superintendents and other highly compensated administrators — who routinely claim that parents are their “partners” — have instead joined Saunders and other radical staff members in promoting LGBTQ politics.  They have usurped and abused both the authority and the privilege delegated and entrusted to them by parents and other taxpayers.  Parents of potentially gender-confused children should avoid SRVUSD if at all possible.

"ADMIRAL" RACHEL (RICHARD) LEVINE AND WPATH COLLUSION EXPOSED IN ALABAMA CASE

Alabama's Vulnerable Child Compassion and Protection Act  a common-sense law which prohibits  "gender-affirming" hormonal drugs and "sex-change" surgical mutilation for minors — has been under challenge in federal court.

Internal emails of the "World Professional Association for Transgender Health" discuss ages of the children involved.

Again, the children involved are minors; they are younger than 18 years of age.  Opponents to the Alabama law, realizing the growing opposition of society to "gender affirmation" insanity, "judge-shopped" in their determined effort to control the outcome of the case, but have been called out on that common but unethical practice.

Evidence presented to the Court demonstrated that Assistant Secretary of Health, transgender
Dr. Rachel Levine, "though a staff member, pressured WPATH to remove recommended minimum ages for medical transition treatments" from WPATH's recommended "Standards of Care" (SOC). 


Levine was opposed to any age limits, including even the very young ages initially specified for transgenderizing minors in the original WPATH SOC: "age 14 for cross-sex hormone treatment; age 15 for chest masculinization surgery; age 16 for breast augmentation and facial surgery; and age 17 for metoidioplasty, orchidectomy (castration), hysterectomy, and fronto-orbital remodeling."  So WPATH "professionals" have removed those limits.

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 






 

 

See Exhibit 24.  See also the expert testimony and extensive bibliography presented by expert witness James Cantor, and also Michael Shellenberger's extensive revelations of WPATH's internal discussions.  Shellenberger's report includes WPATH messages which show some of the dangers to health which "medical gender transition" imposes on immature or otherwise naïve victims.

 

The American Academy of Pediatrics is also thoroughly compromised in its own collaboration with WPATH in refusing age limits for "gender-affirming care." 

As Shellenberger states, WPATH communications "prove that the practice of transgender medicine is neither scientific nor medical."  Nevertheless, and demonstrating a further corruption of policy and practice, the American Medical Association, the Endocrine Society, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and thousands of doctors worldwide rely on WPATH" as a supposed "leading global authority on 'gender medicine.' " 

Researcher Leor Sapir of the Manahattan Institute himself illustrates why "Trust the Experts" on these issues is dangerous.  And a genuinely professional medical group, the American College of Pediatricians has issues its own condemnation of the WPATH / Rachel (Richard) Levine collaboration in resisting age limits for "gender affirmation."

And once again, even the New York Times has not been able to ignore the story:  "Newly released emails from an influential group [WPATH] issuing transgender medical guidelines indicate that U.S. health officials lobbied to remove age minimums for surgery in minors because of concerns over political fallout."  (06-25-24) 

Unsurprisingly, the Times does still try to spin the story in favor of the irresponsible WPATH clinicians who push hormonal and surgical "gender affirmation."

FINLAND'S CHALLENGE TO "GENDER-AFFIRMING CARE" AS "THERAPY" FOR MINORS


Note, from articles below: the vast majority of children (4 out of 5) who believe they are "transgendered" will grow out of that perception  unless they are "socially transitioned." Then, virtually NONE grow out of it.

Yet SRVUSD is facilitating such "social transitions," and concealing them from the same parents who would have to provide permission for the children involved to be given an aspirin.  

Leo Sapir of the Manhattan Institute reflects in Tablet on an interview of Dr. Riittakerttu Kaltiala, a leading Finnish researcher of gender issues, with Helsingin Sanomat (Helsinki Messages, "Finland’s liberal newspaper of record."

Sapir reports that Dr. Kaltiala's  comments are "a sobering reminder of just how out of step the American medical establishment is with its European counterparts when it comes to treating minors who reject their sex":

 

"Evidence from a combined 12 studies to date demonstrates that when children with cross-gender or gender variant behavior are left to develop naturally, the vast majority —“four out of five,” according to Kaltiala — come to terms with their bodies and learn to accept their sex.  Virtually none do so when they've been socially transitioned.

 

"That most children desist from cross-sex identification does not necessarily mean that they will no longer experience any distress associated with their bodies; rather, it means that even if such distress lingers, it will not prevent them from becoming reasonably well-adjusted and living a good life.  The notion that no human should ever have to experience any discomfort associated with male or female embodiment, including during the turbulent period of puberty, is the utopian promise fueling much of the gender transition industry."

See also:  "Correcting the Record on Social Transition," which notes that "social transition is an active mental-health intervention that poses serious risks to children and adolescents. Consequently, its use in schools infringes on parents’ constitutionally protected rights."

See also:  "
Mental Health in Adolescents with Incongruence of Gender Identity and Biological Sex," a position statement by the therapists of the American College of Pediatricians:  "Both before and after 'gender affirming therapy' (GAT), adolescents who have gender-identity incongruence are at higher risk for psychopathology than their peers who identify with their biological sex.... There is no long-term evidence that mental health concerns are decreased or alleviated after “gender affirming therapy.”  Many individuals who have been treated with “GAT” later regret those interventions and seek to align their gender identity with their sex."

Many parents have been dismayed and angered to discover that their children's teachers have been requiring kids to specify their preferred pronouns, for the whole classroom  then worsening things further with homosexual and transgender-themed read-aloud picture books (as detailed in this site's "Queering the Classroom" pages). 

Most children enter classrooms feeling that in dress and mannerisms, their preferred pronouns are perfectly obvious; so they can be confused and embarrassed at having to specify them. 

 

But kids are fluidly plastic in their perceptions of self, and they are generally insecure. They go through natural phases wherein boys prefer the company of other boys and girls the company of other girls.  If they begin to hear hints or even assertions from irresponsible adults that such associations may indicate a tendency toward transgenderism, the kids may believe it. Instead, for most kids, there comes a time when opposite-sex attraction becomes a determinative behavioral impulse. 

A small percentage of children experience gender dysphoria, or discomfort with their physically apparent and even chromosomally determined sex, and seem to be manifesting a transgender inclination or some so-called non-binary identity.   But of even of that small percentage, approximately 70-80% eventually desist, or turn away, from the psychosis of transgenderism, so long as that condition is not treated with "gender-affirming care" — i.e., not socially affirmed, not hormonally reinforced with dangerous puberty-blocking drugs, and not mutilated surgically. 

 

So the ideologies and politics of the District’s gender activists, whether subtle or pushed overtly by radical gender benders, do not belong in classrooms. If a stranger in a park came up to these young children and advocated what they're hearing and seeing from some teachers, it would be a case of "stranger-danger" grooming and potential arrest, judicial proceedings, and incarceration.

ADDITIONAL BACKGROUND SOURCES FOR CONCERNED PARENTS

To assist further in understanding Transgender Psychosis, its causes, and its facilitators, the following additional resources are provided.  This listing will continue to be expanded so long as SRVUSD employees continue to promote or enable age-inappropriate gender-and-sex material in captive-audience classrooms — and to obscure or conceal such activity from parents, or otherwise to usurp/subvert the authority of parents, the educators’ supposed “partners.”  Topical headings have been added to some sources.  

Those who want to understand why girls in particular are so badly affected by "transgender" ideology and activism should obtain and read Abigail Shrier's IRREVERSIBLE DAMAGE:  The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters.  
 

Their stories, Mrs. Shrier observes, follow a common pattern: a girl who has never expressed discomfort with her biological sex until puberty is affected then by anxiety and depression. She  struggles to make friends.  "She immerses in social media and discovers transgender gurus. Or her school holds an assembly celebrating gender journeys, or hosts a Gay-Straight Alliance club pushing gender ideology. At first, she tries out a new name and pronouns. Her school encourages her, keeping all this a secret from her parents. Then, she wants more.
 

She quotes Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling: “If I’d found community and sympathy online that I couldn’t find in my immediate environment [as a teen], I believe I could have been persuaded to turn myself into the son my father had openly said he’d have preferred.”

Mrs. Shrier continues:  "Public schools peddle gender ideology with a fervor that would make a preacher blush. Transgender social-media gurus tout the euphoria testosterone produces.... Hundreds of plastic surgeons are happy to offer medically unnecessary double-mastectomies to girls as young as 16 without so much as a therapist’s note...."

In the past, and not so long ago, gender identity disorder (now called "gender dysphoria") was a more common diagnosis for boys than for girls. Social media (with its more exaggerated effect on female-group dynamics) and the irresponsible schools of today help explain the problem now for girls.  But what about boys, in the decades before social media and school-based gender-bender activism? 

An important 1991 study, published in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, offers a finding about the boys back then: "Fifty-three percent of the mothers of boys with GID [gender identity disorder], compared with only 6% of controls, met the diagnosis for Borderline Personality Disorder." 

Specifically, deep depression was often the diagnosis for the moms.  This is not to blame them; mothers often carry very heavy and disproportionate loads in their families, heroically.  But they used to be able to rely on schools for help, not interference in bringing up children.  Now, schools routinely usurp parental rights, and point kids to dangerous pathways, making the job of conscientious parents more difficult than in earlier decades.  

The Transgender Leviathan is an informative introduction to the magnitude of the problem nationwide.

THE UNCONSCIONABLE "LIVE SON OR A DEAD DAUGHTER" PARENTAL GUILT TRAP

Risk of Suicide and Self-Harm Following Gender-AffirmationThis NIH-published study involved 1501 individuals aged 18 to 60 who had undertaken "gender affirming surgery" during the 20-year period 2003 to 2023.  It shows that mutilation of human bodies to implement "gender affirmation" resulted in a 12-fold increase in suicide attempts by victims involved. 


Authors' own summary:  "Individuals who underwent gender-affirming surgery had a 12.12-fold higher suicide attempt risk than those who did not." 

An earlier study of Swedish "Transsexual Persons Undergoing Sex Reassignment Surgery" involving "All 324 sex-reassigned persons" (average initial age 35) during the 30-year period from 1973 to 2003 found a
19x higher rate of suicide than in the general population.  Of importance:  Sweden, even in 1973, was highly tolerant of "transsexualism."  

The Swedish study, adjusting for same-age cohorts, also documented significantly higher rates of other morbidities 
  a 2.5x higher rate of cardiovascular disease resulting in death, 2.1x higher rate of neoplasm (cancer) death, 1.7x higher rate of substance abuse.   Even crime rates were higher.   The summary table below is adapted from one that is included in the NIH-published Swedish investigation.  Highlight has been added:

In other words, given the relevant research:  the barbaric amputation of a young person's healthy body parts in order to accomplish the perverse objectives of gender-bender propagandists ought to be considered criminally negligent.  So should the cynical promotions of transgenderism which target kids via social media and in schools, and which so readily lead to "social transition," then hormonal "therapy," then "gender-affirming" surgical mutilation.  


But meanwhile: SRVUSD's official policy  after its teachers perform "LGBTQ" (including gender-bender) read-alouds to its TK-Grade 3 youngsters  is to conceal any sudden claim "gay" or transgender identity of these vulnerably impressionable children from parents, unless the children give permission for disclosure to the parents.

A standard warning by gender-bender "therapists" to alarmed parents:  "Do you want a live son or a dead daughter?" (or vice versa). It's a cynical, irresponsible, unprofessional manipulation of those desperate parents. 

And if they unwisely accept the "gender-affirming care" then recommended, they may be helping to facilitate the early death of their disturbed child.  Kids who are "socially transitioned" are later more likely to desire puberty-blocking / cross-sex hormonal "treatment" — and then surgical mutilation in ill-advised response to what is essentially a mental illness. 

Psychiatric intervention is the actual best professional practice needed, as Dr. Paul McHugh, former Psychiatrist in Chief at Johns Hopkins, has long assertedDr. McHugh observes that "policy makers and the media are doing no favors... to the public or the transgendered by treating their confusions as a right in need of defending rather than as a mental disorder that deserves understanding, treatment, and prevention.  This intensely felt sense of being transgendered constitutes a mental disorder in two respects. The first is that the idea of sex misalignment is simply mistaken — it does not correspond with physical reality. The second is that it can lead to grim psychological outcomes."

What about findings by the "Trevor Project" regarding "LGBTQ" suicide?  Those derive from "targeted recruitment" and then self selection for an "online survey platform."   In other words, selection bias is built in to the Trevor reports.  So are LGBTQ activists.  

Sam Brinton, for example, led Trevor's  advocacy and government affairs division from 2017 to 2020. In 2016 and 2018, he was head of the D.C. Chapter of the "Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence."  That organization blasphemously caricatures religious sisters and even Christ Himself. 

In February 2022,
"non-binary" Brinton became the Biden Administration's Deputy Assistant Secretary for spent fuel and waste disposition in the Department of Energy's Office of Nuclear Energy.  He left that position later the same year after he was arrested for stealing luggage at airports.  He appeared in what was apparently a Tanzanian female fashion designer's clothing, taken from one of the suitcases he'd stolen, at a "Trevor LIVE NYC event" in 2018.  

THE UK'S CASS REVIEW

The U.K.'s extensive Cass Review of that country's treatment of gender dysphoria  for young people (April 2024) offers important considerations and conclusions for those responding so hastily to the problem in this country. 

One implication we can draw immediately:  the unlicensed, amateur psychotherapy being practiced by school districts like SRVUSD, with a determination to push transgenderism at kids and then to affirm that condition (and hide it from parents), is dangerous to vulnerable, impressionable schoolchildren.

Among other findings:  "Whilst some young people may feel an urgency to transition, young adults looking back at their younger selves would often advise slowing down."

Underlying expressions of gender dysphoria is "a range of needs and/or associated conditions."  In particular, "rates of depression, anxiety and eating disorders were higher in the gender clinic referred population than in the general population."


Beginning in 2010, a prior tendency for gender dysphoria to affect more males than females was reversed.  By 2018-2022, the ratio was 73% females to 27% males.

Tellingly, "attempts to improve the evidence base [on gender dysphoria] have been thwarted by a lack of cooperation from the adult gender services."

This is a long and comprehensive report, following a four-year study.  The Clinical Advisory Network on Sex and Gender offers its own helpful summary of major conclusions and recommendations derived in the Cass investigation. 

The motto of the CAN-SG group is a portion of the classical Hippocratic Oath to which doctors used to attest, and more or less universally believed, before modern politics invaded the profession:  FIRST DO NO HARM. 

That requirement should also be a prime directive for teachers and school administrators, but that field too is now politically driven, primarily by the radical teacher unions, including the local SRVEA / CTA / NEA chapter.  

Meanwhile, the UK's National Health Service now specifies that “Puberty blockers … are not available to children and young people for gender incongruence or gender dysphoria because there is not enough evidence of safety and clinical effectiveness."   Further:  "Most treatments offered at this stage are psychological rather than medical. This is because in many cases gender variant behaviour or feelings disappear as children reach puberty."  Actually, that's most cases.

A Letter to the School Board:  

 

This is an anonymous letter, posted by Parents with Inconvenient Truths About Trans, to an unidentified school board.  But it reviews issues of the sort which SRVUSD ignores or denies in its rush to validate juvenile transgenderism.  At the end of this letter is a list of links to helpful organizations for learning more about transgenderism and its associated activists and propaganda.  Parents whose kids have been trans co-opted by schools will find advice and understandting here.  

Our Duty Logo_edited.jpg

Our Duty is an evidence-based, international support network for parents wishing to protect their children from gender ideology, the set of notions leading children to believe they have a "gender identity" at odds with the reality of their sex.   Our Duty facilitates peer support for parents of children affected by ROGD and transgender ideation.

Gender indoctrination in schools: a teenage girl’s testimony

This is a November, 2022 article by a UK schoolgirl, then 14, about her state school's radical gender ideology push:  "You’d expect schools to be a place of education, but nowadays it’s more like indoctrination.  Most politicians, parents, and teachers are utterly oblivious about what’s happening right under their noses – or worse, they know, but are too cowardly to do anything."    

This article has been posted by Transgender Trend, a UK-based group advocating for sanity — i.e., "an evidence-based social and clinical approach towards children who self-identify as transgender, and science-based teaching in schools."  The description here by "Cynthia" replicates that being heard about girls in SRVUSD schools. 

"I Pretended To Be ‘Nonbinary’ To Expose a Medical Scandal at Kaiser Permanente"

Beth Bourne, of Davis, California, received an emailed Kaiser reminder about a routine cancer screening for herself, saying that it was “Recommended for people with a cervix ages 21 to 65.”

As a parent of a girl who had been "gender-transitioned" beginning in 8th grade, 
whom Kaiser Permanente Oakland Proud was happy to assist in the process, Beth decided to present  herself as "a nonbinary patient" to show [her] daughter what danger she might be putting herself in, by people who purport to have her health as their interest, but whose main interest is in medically 'affirming' (i.e., transitioning) whoever walks through their door."  And it would all be "covered by insurance as 'medically necessary.'"  

Parents of SRVUSD schoolchildren will be wise to check with their kids on gender-bending activities in this activist district (and others), since it hides "gender transitions" from parents, unless the child gives permission for disclosure to parents.  

"Child Custody's Gender Gauntlet" (Feb. 7, 2022)

Transgender ideology has already achieved a powerful hold on our court  system.  Devoted parents and their children are paying the terrible price.                                                             
Ted Hudacko is an accomplished Bay Area software engineer.  His son's
  "gender transition" was facilitated by his estranged wife, assisted by a Contra Costa County judge who did not reveal her enthusiastic approval of  her own son's "gender transition."

The New York Post carried its own February, 2022 article with more details (including photos) on Judge Hiramoto.

"A Father’s Battle With the Gender Ideology Industrial Complex"  — An update on Ted Hudacko's long battle for justice and the health of his son.  He's gone back to court.

"UCSF professor: Trans kids who ID as ‘Minotaurs’ merely part of ‘gender revolution’"
Further introduction to Diane Ehrensaft, the advisor relied upon by the court-appointed counsel to Ted Hudacko's son. Ehrensaft has a "gender-nonconforming" son of her own, and she believes that the "gender revolution," with "children leading it," is "a wonderful thing to see."   

RAPID ONSET GENDER DYSPHORIA (ROGD)

There is growing and already considerable evidence that gender dysphoria (discomfort and/or dissatisfaction and with one's biological sex) is largely a societally facilitated and conditioned disturbance, accelerated by social media.  Specifically:  entire groups of associated pre-teens and teens especially girls — are suddenly announcing and/or declaring a "transgender identity."

This phenomenon was first substantively reported in 2018 and 2019 and given the ROGD name by Dr. Lisa Littman, a physician and at the time a researcher at Brown University — and now President and Director of the Institute for Comprehensive Gender Dysphoria Research (ICGDR).  She also serves on the advisory boards of Gender Dysphoria Alliance (GDA) and GenSpect.   Dr. Littman has explained her work and its motivations here.

ICGDR and the Gender Dysphoria Alliance in particular have also posted extensive links to other helpful findings. 

Additional evidence was compiled and reported in April and October of 2023 by researchers Michael Bailey of Northwestern University and Susanna Diaz (a pseudonym, needed to protect her family from transgender activists).   The Society for Evidence Based Gender Medicine has published a helpful summary of the Bailey-Diaz findings


The reason for two publication dates in each of the two reports is that the societal gatekeepers who/which insist on politically correct "science" initially retracted the original publications.  Diane Ehrensaft (named above) and other likeminded  members of the "World Professional Association for Transgender Health" quickly disputed their reports, and that was enough for gender-bender activists who believe that children are capable of making their own decisions about "gender-affirming care" to demand the retractions.

SPORTS-PARTICIPATION UNFAIRNESS TO GIRLS AND WOMEN

“Caitlyn" (Bruce) Jenner illustrates the absurdity of allowing biological males who say they're females to compete in girls' and women's athletic events.  Though Jenner was the 1976 Summer Olympics decathlon gold medalist with a record point total, none of his 10-event individual performances would have come close to medaling (placing top 3) in corresponding individual men's events.

But at least 4 of Jenner's 10 performances (all in just two physically draining days) would have taken individual gold in women's events.  Had women's pole vault been contested in the 1976 Games, Jenner's vaulting would have won that competition also.

And
had Jenner used lower-weight women's equipment in the shot put, discus, and javelin throws and shorter distance and lower bars for women's sprint hurdles he would likely have won those individual women's competitions as well.Jenner's time in the 400-meter race, slower by 2.6 seconds than the individual 400-meter men's 1976 bronze medalist, would still be a women's world record today.  [A contrast (as of 2017) of women's performance in track and field vs. men and under-18 boys is posted in a Duke Law analysis.]

In 2018-19, male college sophomore, 6 ft. 4 in. swimmer “Lia" (Will) Thomas's 500 yd freestyle ranked 65th among NCAA men.  But that left him “miserable," Thomas reported in May on “Good Morning America." So he decided he'd “transition." Having thereby “won" the Division 1 NCAA Women's 500 free in March, “the biggest change" is that he's now “happy," declared still-baritone Thomas.  What about the actual women whose finishes were all dropped a spot by Thomas, despite their patient years of tough training?   Title IX compromise/scholarship-confusion is itself just another collateral-damage sacrifice to the synthetic happiness of athletic pretenders.

A June, 2023 Gallup Poll shows that a majority of Americans oppose permitting biological boys and men to participate in girls' and women's events -- and also shows that a majority opposes [alleged] "changes" in gender [gender bending].

THE CONNECTICUT HIGH SCHOOL TRACK SCANDAL

In Connecticut:  Selina Soule, Alanna Smith, Chelsea Mitchell, and Ashley Nicoletti were four girls whose top and high-level state rankings were displaced by biological males competing as “females.” Their attorneys assert violations of Title IX, whose “whole purpose was to ensure that girls had equal athletic opportunities to compete – and win – in girls’ sports events.”
 

“Two males,” they continue, “were permitted to compete in girls’ athletic competitions beginning in the 2017 track season.  Between them, they took 15 women’s state championship titles (titles held in 2016 by 9 different Connecticut girls) and more than 85 opportunities to participate in higher level competitions from female track athletes in the 2017, 2018, and 2019 seasons alone.”  The case was dismissed in September because the parties involved had graduated from high school.  It is now on appeal, because the issues remain contested for good reason.

The usual suspects seek to perpetuate the ability of boys and men who claim they're girls and women to participate in female athletic competitions, including the ACLU, the Trevor Project, the politically compromised American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Medical Association, the Southern Poverty Law Center (which SRVUSD relies upon for some curricular materials, in SPLC's "Teaching Tolerance" identity), and others.

ATHLETIC-TEAM ABSURDITY HAS NOW BECOME A DANGER FOR GIRLS AND WOMEN

And increasingly, the ABSURDITY of males competing in female sports (along with girls' locker-room discomfort) has become the DANGER of surrendering to “transgender” activist demands.  In North Carolina, as one example, a self-promotional recruiting video reportedly assembled by a Highlands School biological male playing girls’ volleyball shows that male spiking the ball (reportedly at over 70 mph), knocking unconscious an opposing player hit in the forehead.

The injured player reportedly sustained a concussion and vision problems, and her school district will now forfeit any future matches against Highlands as a matter of safety.

Long and short, many of America's state legislatures, along with go-along / get along schools and school districts are aiding and abetting a "Transgender War on Women."   The psychosis (loss of contact with reality) of transgenderism is now resulting not "just" in embarrassment, not "just" in grossly unfair sports competition, but in assaults and in physical harm to girls and women.  The most radical "feminist" organizations are either silent or actually supportive of "transgender" intrusions into the private domains of girls and women.

THE ANDROGYNY PROJECT
 

(From an article concerning the American Left's power-mad "Green Project," "Quota Project," and "Androgyny Project")

"The Androgyny Project holds that gender identity is independent of biological sex and purely subjective. If a middle-aged man claims that he is a woman, then progressives favor requiring local government to retroactively falsify his birth certificate to show that he was 'really' born female and 'misassigned at birth.'
 

"Far more comprehensive than 'trans rights, ''which affect fewer than 1% of the population, the Androgyny Project seeks to redefine all male and female human beings as generic, androgynous humanoids whose sex is a matter of subjective self-definition rather than objective reality.
 

"The bizarre theory that sex is entirely a social construction has led much of the trans-Atlantic establishment to attempt to impose speech codes on society. Instead of 'mothers,' the androgynists insist that we say 'birthing people.' A 'woman' becomes a 'person with a cervix.' It is easy to get confused by the weird jargon. During the 2020 presidential primaries, Democratic presidential candidate Julian Castro declared that every 'trans female'—that is, a biological male incapable of pregnancy and childbirth—should have access to abortion, when he meant to say every 'trans male' (that is, female).

 

"...The Androgyny Project, for its part, is bound to crash against reality in the form of human biology. I predict that in a generation the 'progressive' policy of so-called 'gender-affirming health care' will be viewed in hindsight the way the prescription of lobotomies and chemical castration as cures for homosexuality in the 1950s is viewed today."

srvEXPOSITOR Editor comment:  what is called "the Androgyny Project" here effectiv
ely describes one of the latest insanities to drive SRVUSD's stupid, ignorant, and evil decisions.

COMMON SENSE BEGINNING TO RETURN IN SOME INSTANCES

 

Here and there, sanity has begun creeping back into decisions about participation by boys and men who believe they are  or who simply pretend to be girls and women. World Aquatics, the governing body for swimming, water polo, diving, and synchronized swimming, has banned boys and men who've experienced puberty from female competition.  The ban was initiated just months after the Lia Thomas NCAA spectacle.  

In April 2024, the National Association for Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA, made up of 249 small, mostly private colleges and their
approximately 83,000 student athletes) banned biological males — and females taking masculinizing hormones — from female athletic competitions.  Unsurprisingly, that has angered gender-bender organizations.  NAIA's policy can be found here.
