The Cult language of Gender Fundamentalist Trans Youth Family Allies:
Kim Pearson is Executive Director and Founding Member of TransYouth Family Allies, “the only national organization dedicated exclusively to education and advocacy for gender variant and transgender children and youth.” TYFA is a tax free non-profit organization devoted to lobbying for and promoting the medical/surgical “correction” (or as they put it, the“affirmation”) of gender-noncompliant youths. This means they advocate chemical castration of pre-teens followed by surgical sterilization. In the first year (2007) Pearson claims they “affirmed” 15 children, but as of May 2010 were “affirming” 150-180 children annually.
Kim Pearson: “I think this is pretty much the tip of the iceburg, I think for probably every ten kids that come to us- ten families that come to us- there are maybe a hundred that don’t- that aren’t seeking the answers or aren’t supporting their children. So I think we’re only going to see this grow and grow and grow as people become more aware.”
When TYFA says “Keep your gender variant child IN T.A.C.T.”, they actually mean chemically castrate them and surgically sterilize them, then force them into lifetime drug dependence. Not “Intact” AT ALL.
We already know CONCLUSIVELY that the majority of these kids would turn out gay/lesbian without this corrective “treatment”. So why do this to kids? Perhaps a look at the Board of Trustees will be illuminating…
The board members and advisors of this tax-free transgender pediatric lobbying agency are a very interesting group – including Director Andrea James, who famously posted pictures of author J.Michael Bailey’s elementary school aged children online with pornographic captions superimposed, Andrea disgustingly and illegally captioned the purloined photo of Bailey’s prepubertal minor daughter: “cock-starved exhibitionist.” and Johanna Olson MD, of Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles which has “treated” over 500 children with gender-nonconformity and who presents workshops called “Toddlers to Teens: Comprehensive Health Care For Your Transgender Child” (and no, health care does not refer to illness, these are healthy kids being “treated” for sex role incongruence. Healthy toddlers being put on the path to medically recommended sterilization and a lifetime dependence on drugs. At least recommended by Dr. Olson, one of the few MDs condoning such practices.) The text from one of Dr. Olson’s promotional blurbs: “Early intervention with proper medical care and mental health care, can greatly increase the success of a child’s transition. While medical and mental health expertise for transgender children are currently a rare phenomena, this workshop will vigorously address this deficiency and empower participants to find the proper care for their child. Session I will focus on initial evaluation of the child, counseling child and family, social transition and the medical screening of younger children“. Treating transgender TODDLERS. Rigggght. Reminds me of the guy who beat a 17 month old to death for not acting “manly” enough.
Quite a few other interesting Board members and Advisors- I’ll post them all in comments.
TYFA anti-discrimination policy:
Hello. What’s missing from this non-discrimination policy that’s included on every such policy in the known universe? Sex. Freaking sex discrimination. TYFA reserves the right to discriminate on the basis of physical sex. Go figure.
If you’re a parent of a child insisting he’s a girl or she’s a boy, RUN RUN RUN from these people! Don’t sterilize your kids and place them on a lifetime regime of drugs! Love them and support them to be the person they grow up to be, even if that person breaks all the lame rules of “gender” in our society! Give them the skills they may need to cope with being different!
