I'm telling you, just like Dr. Bowers talking to Abigail Shrier and the other events the last week or two in which prominent TRAs and therapist orgs have walked previous statements back about affirmative only care, this is another sign something HUGE is about to break.

As recently as last month, Endocrine Society celebrated "affirmative care" https://www.endocrine.org/news-and-advocacy/news-room/2021/endocrine-society-celebrates-uk-court-of-appeal-decision . They have an entire section dedicated to Transgender medicine. https://www.endocrine.org/topics/transgender-medicine

Also, why the hell does it take a freaking 5000 word paper in a journal to state SEX IS REAL, FFS.

100% agree. These quacks know that the trans kid gravy train isn't going to last forever. They've ALWAYS known that these treatments are unethical (especially when done to children); but they did it anyway because the money was good and they got oodles of woke cred. The fact that they're walking some of it back and engaging with figures like Abigail Shrier is a sign that something big is coming down the pike and these butchers want to get in front of it. Perhaps some detransitioned youngsters are filing a class action suit? Or some trans kids have already become horribly crippled or dead due to the "treatments" and we just haven't heard of it yet?

Either way, I hope this reckoning comes soon. And that monsters like Bowers (who butchered kids to line his pockets) aren't allowed to escape justice

When you say something huge, what do you think it is? I think potentially there’s a few lawsuits being threatened / going forward that haven’t been revealed to the public yet

[–] IrishTheFrenchie 25 points (+25|-0)

Lawsuits, malpractice suits, maybe malpractice insurance will no longer cover this garbage. Or a massive study on how harmful hormones/pb's/surgery is for kids or even adults.

Something HUGE.

Jazz Jennings just turned 21 and has made contact with the outside world for the first time in his life. Perhaps he's out for justice?

Edit: "Marci" Bowers told Jazz he'd have a "porn star's vagina" before butchering his puberty-suppressed micropenis. And Bowers just came out in opposition to puberty suppressants...

I don’t know. I get the excitement over some positive development but belief in some huge upcoming reveal seems reminiscent of QANON thinking. No offense meant as I of course believe that the reality of biological sex is entirely self-evident, as opposed to fantastical conspiracies like Q. But we should be careful not to get carried away with this line of thinking IMO.

"The tide is turning" is a phrase I've heard every other months for over a few years now

Agreed. Maybe there are lawsuits in the works but in all likelihood they would only chip away at this stuff in the mainstream and the TRA tactic of telling people to read their "interpretations" of the "implications" and "dog whistles" instead of actually thinking for themselves means that very few minds will be changed.

And the first comment is:

This is very, very dangerous and I feel unsafe.

[–] Lilim 36 points (+36|-0)

Because women tell men all the time they feel unsafe because of them and it’s another thing they appropriate because our oppression is fetish fuel for their LARPing.

[–] Riothamus scrote 21 points (+21|-0)

Wow. That's impressively pathetic.

I can't believe I'm saying this- but that guy would actually benefit from getting hammered at a bar and taking a swing at the biggest dude he can find. A good ass-kicking would at least properly recalibrate his ability to recognize danger.

That’s a troll but still

[–] carpetplaydohx2 11 points (+11|-0)

I'm tempted to argue that all TIMs are trolls --

But I'm also curious as to how you all spot them so easily. I may need to spend more time on Twitter to refine my troll-dar!

[–] ArmyofMe 4 points (+4|-0)

Look at the dudes timeline. Who he reblogs, the terms he uses. One of his first reblogs is a post on Sam Hyde, a beloved figure and meme of the 4chan crowd. He also seems to repost anti left politics stuff.

I’m pretty good at troll spotting. I tend to be untrusting of everyone and I have been very online since I was a teen (now in my mid 30s)

[–] CornflakeGrrrl 8 points (+8|-0)

Lol, this biological fact that has been true since the beginning of time is suddenly "dangerous."

I've got news for you bud, if reality makes you feel unsafe...the calls are coming from inside the house!

[–] pennygadget 20 points (+20|-0)

In other news: the earth is round, water is wet, and puppies are adorable.

I can't believe we live in a reality where medical organizations have to announce that biological sex is a thing. My fucking cat knows this! You don't need a medical degree to figure it out!

[–] sicktodeath 12 points (+12|-0)

With the endocrine society, I really wonder if a lot of the doctors who want to treat kids with diabetes and growth disorders have been staying a silent coup against the powers that be that want to force them to dispense “titty skittles”.

Bio sex is real
It doesn't change
However much you squeal
It stays the same
We're all made
Of sperm and egg
Nothing in-between
There ain't no "speg"
Cuz bio sex is real
It doesn't change
No matter what you feel
It stays the same

I seriously hope the person saying they feel like that statement is dangerous and they feel unsafe was just a troll. i am tired of these super manipulative people that threaten self harm because someone says something like sex is real or that they don't want to see penises in the locker room. it is sad that biological sex is real is something that even needs to be said.
