WHO appoints majority transgender activists, lacking medical training, to draft global child-rearing rules, raising concerns.

January 12, 2024 8:50 pm by CWR

The United Nations healthcare agency — the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) — has given transgender activists a majority of the seats in a panel that is drafting healthcare policies for children.

Eleven members of the W.H.O.’s 21-member panel have no formal medical training, seven are transgender, and just ten have a medical background, according to a report by Daily Mail.

One of them is reportedly a controversial Canadian trans activist who has a strong influence on the Chinese app TikTok and says puberty blockers should be prescribed to all children, regardless of their gender identity, so they can “choose” their gender rather than being assigned one by society.

Another of the W.H.O.’s committee members says that transitioning causes no health problems and claims the only “actual side effects” of getting a sex change are a “significantly improved quality of life … and trans joy.”

The rest of the panel members are a mixture of activists, social justice advocates, human rights lawyers, STD researchers, and policy advisers, Daily Mail reports.

Another committee member, Ashley — a biological male who identifies as female and goes by the pronouns “they/them that bitch” — has a tattoo that reads, “Be Gay, Do Crimes.

Ashley, who has co-written a study that claims puberty blockers and hormone therapies “ought to be treated as the default option” for children with gender dysphoria, has a significant following on TikTok where he calls for mental health checks on trans children to be scrapped before they are given puberty blockers and hormone drugs.

“Is there any reason to ask people to go through a lengthy and complex gender assessment in order to access gender-affirming care, or is that useless and should the time best be put in supporting decision-making,” Ashley reportedly said.

“And what our article concludes is that there’s really no evidence that gender assessments work — it’s just a lengthier process for no real reason,” he added. “Gender assessments are really an unnecessary form of gatekeeping that trans communities have been opposing for a while.”

The West’s Lunatic Woke Agenda

Spills Over into Bystander Serbia

Global Research, January 19, 2024

Five Selected Woke Policies

1. In order to maintain the fiction that in their attributes men and  women are physiologically indistinguishable, the Canadian government has mandated the installation of tampon dispensers in men’s bathrooms. The empirical fact that men have no use for tampons is trumped by ideology, which dictates categorically that they do because it is dogmatically prescribed that men do menstruate and are furthermore able to give birth to babies. People who believe themselves to be something they are not, and claim that their subjective self-perception overrides reality, are politically empowered to cancel empirical observation and the conclusions reached by scientists who perform accurate, verifiable research.

2. Also on the ideological reality chopping block is terminology that points to pre-woke, common sense notions about natural relations between human beings. “Mother” and “father, “expressions that allude to the manifestly different roles of parents in the process of conception and nurture of offspring, in the woke-controlled universe have been forcibly replaced by designations “parent no. 1” and “parent no. 2,” invented to hide those facts. Now the Methodist Church of Great Britain has gone a step farther, to label terms “husband” and “wife” offensive. Inspired by inclusivity, the technical rationale for this departure from normalcy is “to avoid making assumptions” that are not “the reality for many people.”

3. The avant-garde state of California has passed a law that takes effect this year, AB 1084, requiring large retail stores to include gender neutral toy sections or face fines and other punishments. The new law will place an additional undue burden on retailers and will have the foreseeable economic impact of raising the price of toys generally for normal families and their children. Incidentally, it is anybody’s guess what the definition of gender neutral toys is and whether there is a market for such items. But in a parallel universe governed by ideological delusions these are inconsequential details.

4. In Britain, the country where the novel 1984, which introduced the notion of thought crime, had been written, the first literal thought crime prosecutions have recently been instituted. Isabel Vaughan Spruce, Director of UK March for Life, so far has been cited by the police three times and taken to court for silently praying in front of abortion clinics. Readers should note that her arrests were triggered not by speech or conduct but for an “objectionable” activity that was purely mental. British authorities did not contest her right as a citizen (or royal subject, if you wish) to be in the public space where she was detained. Detention and prosecution were based entirely on their perception of what allegedly was going on in her mind, in the proximity of an abortion clinic, which the authorities considered might be provocative and perturbing to the consumers of the clinic’s services. Readers should be aware that in common law the concept of thought transgression does not exist and that so far the British Parliament has not given statutory expression to such an offence. Nevertheless, an actual person presumably endowed with human rights has been subjected to persecution for objectively unprovable thoughts in order to enforce a legally non-existent norm. But that is the new normal, the rules based order of woke jurisprudence now taking shape in the land that once prided itself on upholding the “rights of Englishmen,” no matter how eccentric. Even the KGB in the old days could not have made this up.

5. Returning to avant-garde California, award-winning Glendale fifth-grade teacher Ray Shelton was suspended for refusing to acquiesce to male students who “identify” as girls stripping naked in front of female students in the girls’ changing room. For opposing the transgender agenda in his school Shelton lost his job. It made no difference that female students and their parents fully supported him and also vehemently objected to these aggressive displays of opposite sex nudity. Glendale happens to be a heavily Armenian suburb of Los Angeles and its overwhelmingly normal residents are unacculturated to progressive Western values. They reacted with consternation to the state-orchestrated sexualisation of their children. Their protests, however, were to no avail. Shelton is now suing the state for damages. Good luck, in the judicial system of the deranged state of California.

These morsels of lunacy might be regarded as the tragicomical final stage in the collapse of a suicidal civilisation except for the fact that by means of highhanded political manipulation and arrogant agenda imposition even nations and cultures which still retain a residue of sanity are being cowed into submission and drawn into the abyss. Let Serbia serve as an instructive case study, foreshadowing the contours of the coming dystopia.

Growing Concerns Over Links Between Transgenderism And Violence

Saturday, Jan 27, 2024 - 02:40 AM

Authored by Darlene McCormick Sanchez via The Epoch Times (emphasis ours),

Mental health issues that manifest in gender confusion, combined with potent cross-sex hormones, can be a recipe for violence, some experts have said.

Since 2018, five people who identified as transgender or were gender-confused have gone on killing sprees at schools and businesses. Authorities have been increasingly slow to confirm so-called gender identities and motives in cases such as these.

When shooters’ “gender identities” were revealed, some news outlets and commentators were quick to point out that people who identify as transgender and those who say they’re neither male nor female represent a small fraction of mass shooters.

But the numbers show a concerning pattern.

A mass shooting is defined by the Crime Prevention Research Center as the killing of four or more people in a single incident that’s not gang or drug related.

Of the 37 public mass shootings from 2018 through 2023, two were carried out by gender-confused individuals, according to John Lott, president of the Crime Prevention Research Center. Three additional shootings were carried out by gender-confused individuals that resulted in fewer than four victims.

The case that has received the most intense media scrutiny is that of 28-year-old Audrey Hale, who went on a killing spree at the Covenant School in Nashville in March 2023.

She gunned down three 9-year-olds and three adults before police shot and killed her.

Ms. Hale identified as a “transgender man,” according to Metropolitan Nashville Police Chief John Drake.

Teachers seeking to ‘dismantle’ whiteness want to turn your kids into race activists

ByAdam B. Coleman
Published Jan. 24, 2024, 7:50 p.m. ET

Progressivism’s supposed benevolence is a Trojan horse used to infiltrate all our trusted institutions to wage a religious crusade against “anti-racist” nonbelievers.

To ensure their dogma gets solidified in society for generations to come, leftists convert as many children as possible to create a youth movement that will fight its elders to bring about the change it’s been instructed to advocate.

Milwaukee Public Schools, among many other school districts throughout America, is putting into practice its anti-racist fundamental beliefs by striving to “de-center” and “dismantle” whiteness.

It circulated a 33-page memo, “Educational Community and District Climate,” throughout the district with the aim of addressing “discipline disproportionality” through the prism of anti-racism doctrine, Young America’s Foundation reports.

“Whiteness is everywhere around us. Educational practices have been rooted in Whiteness and coming from a lens of Whiteness for years. Educators should reflect on which elements of Whiteness they see in education, which they participate in, and which elements they can work to dismantle,” the memo stated.

Even more sinister, it warned, “Achieving equity may require an unequal distribution of resources and services in order to ensure that all children have an equal opportunity to a free and appropriate public education.”

The district explicitly warned staff against treating everyone equally and sneered at the concept of attempting to see others as individuals.

“We must understand that race plays a role throughout our society and education and ensure we are not finding ourselves in the mindset that ‘race is not real,’ ‘I don’t see race,’ or ‘I treat everyone equally.’”

And, of course, the memo recommended works by anti-racist hucksters Ibram X. Kendi and Robin DiAngelo, along with a video called “Whiteness: WTF?”

Anti-racist fundamentalists project their insecurities onto the rest of the world, and their negative feelings about other races get projected onto the rest of us.

Their doctrine encourages paternalism for the people they feel are inferior, like black people, and hails those who are true believers as the saviors of society.

While white people are theoretically the reason for all society’s problems, the doctrine goes, they are simultaneously the only ones who can reshape it since nonwhite people don’t have the power or privilege to do so; our devils are also our saints.

But it’s better understood that saying “whiteness” is no different from using the word “sin.”

“Whiteness is everywhere around us” can easily be translated to “Sin is everywhere around us,” strengthening their desire to exorcise it from every crevice of American society: especially from the minds of our children.

Allowing a “safe space” to discuss race is their version of a confession, where they get to admit their sins as recovering racists striving to redeem themselves — and they must say “Hail Kendi” 10 times to have their whiteness sins forgiven.

We may no longer have Bibles in public schools, but that religious void is being replaced with anti-racist scriptures, taking advantage of the most innocent and vulnerable people in our society: our children.

Our schools are being overrun by nontheistic religious fanatics who will not stop until they convert every child into a like-minded fundamentalist crusader ready to embrace activism to advance the interests of the elites.

If your child can accept that some people deserve unequal treatment, then they will not question when the most powerful in our society treat them unequally.

They will look to wealthy high priests like Kendi and DiAngelo for rationality for their mistreatment and be re-educated to believe social masochism is pleasurable.

Anti-racism resembles the morality of a charlatan televangelist who pretends to heal the wounded by employing actors and passes around the collection plate five times.

America’s “educators” are no different from that silk-suited, fast-talking traveling preacher — they just have cheaper dry-cleaning bills.

Net Zero Threatens National Security

However, in two major reports, the iron and steel trades unions have blown that alleged ‘Net Zero’ gain out of the water, pointing to the obvious: BOS steel not produced in Port Talbot will be produced elsewhere and imported to this country. So there is zero reduction to global carbon dioxide emissions and there is the addition of emissions from ocean transport. Without pig iron, there is also loss of full-spectrum virgin steels capability, loss of high quality jobs and the social devastation of lives in South Wales. The unions’ plan is on the right side of history and should simply go further: ignore the ‘Net Zero’ targets and focus, on national security grounds, on securing a domestic balance of BOS and EAF production. France and Germany both have a 70/30 split, for example. The unions plainly understand the industry better than any civil servant or think tank genuflecting to Net Zero targets.

Therefore, this is the moment when the music stops. The Port Talbot closure harshly exposes the costs of luxury ‘green’ beliefs as we enter the second phase of a global war. It is a war of different theatres and modes of conflict: simultaneously ‘hot’ (kinetic) in Ukraine, the Middle East and with Taiwan threatened; ‘cold’ (economic) with China, Russia and Iran; and ‘grey’ (psychological, cyber and subversive) with all the enemies of the Free World. Major recent statements by NATO’s Military Committee Chairman, the Head of the Army (and Norwegian and Swedish CDSs) and the Defence Secretary finally inform the public of these inconvenient facts. This is no drill.

These concerns touch upon the question of Port Talbot directly and add to the many powerful objections to the closure decision. It must be reversed – we cannot be dependent on imports for the full range of necessary steels to rebuild our arsenals – the Navy first and foremost – and most ridiculously, we cannot be dependent for them on our global antagonists. China’s coal-fired economy is why it can readily build its new navy, just as we once did and must again.

Catherine McBride’s primary argument for replacing BOS steelmaking with EAF is concern about reliance on imported strategic raw materials. However she also observes that U.K. electricity costs are among the most expensive in the world and this destroys the case for EAFs as well, or for any unsubsidised steel production in the U.K. at all. EAFs require abundant and stable electricity supplies, such as they have in the USA. And the cause of the U.K.’s crippling electricity price? Net Zero. So the issue is not BOS versus EAF steel: it’s Net Zero’s all pervasive toxicity, poisoning U.K. power generation.

The irony is that they call the countryside a product of colonialism because they want to colonize it. Typical accuse the victim of what you yourself are doing bs.

 

😆

 

What a load of horseshit. They really are scraping the barrel now.

 

The countryside is FUCKING OUTDOORS!

 

There is NOTHING to stop ANYONE - regardless of your skin colour, ethnic origin or sexuality etc - from going for a walk out in the countryside or round a local park.

 

The only 'barriers' anyone will encounter are gates and fences which are there to keep the public away from privately owned land.

 

And yes, us white folk face these too, not just the 'ethnic minorities'!

Rumours been around for a while that quite a few of the German team of recent times have secretly been playing for the other side. So the new kit really will delight plenty of people.

 

A multi-coloured "St George" flag isn't a "St George" flag, though, is it. It's just a multi-coloured cross design.

 

Gareth Southgatekeeper will be creaming himself nonetheless.

It is inconceivable, regardless of who came up with this or that design, that the FA didn't give this shocking abortion the nod pre-production. 😀

the problem with that sort of thing is that the younger generation have been so dumbed down that they will actually believe what the TV is telling them and their entire conception of history is going to be completely out of whack.....which is probably exactly why the neo-marxists in the BBC do that kind of thing

What really 'boils my piss' is the fact that these t.v. licence fee paying sheep are actually paying for their own brainwashing and smiling at the thought of what good value entertainment they're getting from doing so! Another thing that 'boils my piss' is one of those little white kettles you get in a Travelodge room, they do an excellent job!🤫👍

aye just watch out for plastic kettles as they might release harmful chemicals into the water. Probably better to use metal ones

another question would be to ask who it is that has so much power that they are able to push woke-causes down onto the british public through corporations, schools, universities, the military, the police, legislation from parliament, the border force, the rnli, the hospitals, the mass media, movies, radio, the BBC, the advertising industry and the judiciary all at the same time?

 

who either owns or influences ALL of those bodies or groups?

An organisation which is highly disciplined, secretive, good at long term planning and compartmentalised (need to know basis), with a ruthless focus on it's mission. 

Secret intelligence agencies are a good model for them.

if you go back thousands of years ago the secret societies WERE the intelligence agencies.....i suggest not much has changed and that there is a huge overlap between the secret society hidden hand and the apparatus of the state, including its intelligence agencies
