Transition courses for middle schools in New Jersey

While major newspapers such as The New York Times and The Times publish increasingly concerned articles on the transition of minors -and in Italy deafening press silence- in schools in the US state, 'Ten Years of Testosterone' by Aydian Dowling, FtM influencer who propagandises the online sale of hormones, breast-crushing bands and rubber penises, is screened. Trans-spots explicitly take the place of'sex education

Almost simultaneously with the New York Times, also The Times devotes two long articles to the child transition scandal (they could also have woken up before thousands of young girls and boys were ruined with drugs and hormones, but instead they kept quiet until the very end). Headlines What went wrong at the Tavistock Clinic for trans teenagers? e My puberty was chemically delayed: I was their guinea pig.

We are also waiting for the Italian media to wake up, from Corriere della Sera a The Republic a La Stampain Italy an indeterminate number of girls and boys are undergoing the same treatment, but the data are not known and no one wants to talk about it for fear of sounding transphobic and losing Lgbtq readership and gay-friendly advertisements. Meanwhile, the physical and psychological health of many minors is destroyed.

Probably Feminist Post is the only one who speaks continuously on this subject: type in the search puberty blocker and you will find a plethora of articles.

Meanwhile in the New Jersey, in schools corresponding to our junior high schools, the short film 'Ten Years of Testosterone' will be shown next year as part of the sex education course -already released as a preview-. The short film is a real transition publicity film by Aydian Dowling, a young FtM transwoman who has built with her YouTube channel a veritable business of transit products, starting with the sale of testosterone and other items such as breast compression bands and rubber penises.

Here you can watch the video 'Ten Years of Testosterone', which will then be proposed as curricular content to thousands of children between the ages of 11 and 13, disturbing their free development and risking irreversible damage to their health. Below you can read the comment by a parent who saw the film and followed the related lesson intended for students.


I am a parent with a trans-identified child and I felt compelled to see this film to know what we are up against. It is difficult to watch, but please do: we cannot bury our heads in the sand. [...]

The film begins with a soft-spoken 21-year-old Aydian informing the viewer: 'I discovered YouTube recently and from the moment I discovered it I wanted to make a video... but I felt I would have nothing to say'. As she speaks these words, the sound increases and images upon images are projected on the screen. Each image sees a smiling Aydian at the centre of attention and culminates with its appearance on the Ellen Degeneres Show a few years older, a deep voice and beard. Voilà! The transformation has taken place and the love bombing has begun. It seems that Aydian also has a lot to say to middle school children these days.

Aydian has become a popular FTM influencer on social mediaalong with many others whose path to stardom can be traced back to their beginnings on YouTube. More information on some of these YouTube FTM influencers can be found at The 11th Hour Blog in the three-part series "Cutting to the Chase". YouTube is the place where FTMs often discover the concept of gender identity taking them away from their organic origins, using harmful products (such as the binderbands to hide the breasts, and silicone phalluses called packer) e hormones of the opposite sexand submitting to surgeries altering the body. It is also the platform with which some TMFs attract other unsuspecting and confused girls and young women far from their biological origins, and a place where they can make money for these activities that society should perhaps consider criminal.

Aydian opened his channel in 2009 and in the years since has had over 8 million views; it has been a tour de force along with other YouTube influencers who have pushed the FTM lifestyle in every aspect of American life. Not only did Aydian appear on 'Ellen's' show, but also journals, lectured at universities and founded a company, now called Point of Pride, to sell the FTM lifestyleamong other initiatives.

In this article by Men's Health there is a sentence that makes one think of the original name of his company, Point5cc. "In October 2009, Dowling started her first dose of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and has since injected 0.5 cc of testosterone in his muscles every week". Yes, he originally named his company after the dosage of the untested and off-label class 3 anabolic steroid that he is promoting on his platform, in his company and now also in New Jersey middle schools! And yes, Men's Health is recognising Aydian as a man for these harmful practices. Without a medical background, parents might not imagine what the name means, but many confused middle school girls might know exactly what Point5cc means if they spend some time on social media. The company operated under the name Point5cc from 2012 to 2021, recently changing the name to Point of Pride. Aydian has also made its troubling contribution to other public school systems, appearing as keynote speaker in 2017 at the Iowa Governor's Conference on LGBT Youth.

As Aydian recounts in her film, 'I was 21, had no language to describe the way I was and no one to turn to'. YouTube was her salvation, providing her with both the language (discovered by other FTM YouTubers) and the outlet to express her new transgender identity. If FTMs are successful enough, the monetisation on YouTube can give great fame and open up infinite possibilities. As written in the first part of 'Cutting to the Chase', "these influencers do not act alonebut regularly appear in the content of others and collaborate in the sale of ideology and products to support the illusion of 'transition'". "It is not difficult to see how the connection of influencers and platforms can enable the explosion of a misguided ideology that causes immense damage to an entire generation of young people". The article uses Aydian's company, Point of Pride, as an example to show the connections with many other platforms and programmes that lead to a lifelong regime of devices, drugs and surgeries.

'Ten Years of Testosterone' is full of alarming content, including a testosterone injection scene, but also contains a part of subliminal content that could be overlooked. The first injection point is the thigh of a young, hairless Aydian. A few seconds later, the scene shifts to the hairy thigh of a masculinised Aydian, after the testosterone has run through her body. How good could it be for a confused girl in a society that sells a way out of being herself?

Parents are unlikely to understand the meaning of theclothing by Aydian in the course of the short film, but girls wishing to escape the social standards of a hypersexualised world might recognise certain garments. Take for example the red T-shirt which Aydian wears at minute 2:49, as seen below. The image of Superman superimposed on the letter 'T' is popular with transgender activists and their followers. La "Does 'T' stand for testosterone or transgender?

Aydian's other costume changes during the short film include both a t-shirt is a hoodie with the words 'I am enough'. (at 0:51 and 2:58). The language in the world of gender ideology has been decisive in throwing fuel on the public's fire and selling transgender identities. 'Quite' (Enough) is just one of the many words that have been twisted in this Orwellian language. "Enough' can also be found in the second part of the 'Cutting to the Chase' series. The project "Trans Enough"FTM activist Chase Ross sees 13-year-old girls presenting videos posted on his channel. The girls and young women recounted incidents where they felt 'not trans enough', as if that were possible. In 2018 there was a whole campaign launched by activists around the word 'enough'on the occasion of the "Trans visibility day".

The short film shows repeatedly the surgically modified chest of Aydianmaking some middle school girls want to put an end to their discomfort in their growing teenage bodies. At minute 3:14, Aydian sits in front of his merchandise that students can then purchase on his YouTube channel (even if they are not told). Are the students aware that the Aydian Dowling brand is a commercial enterprise? Even if they do not know it, it is likely that some of the public knows Aydian through his channel or will soon know it after being attracted by his presentation. A hat with the inscription ".5" is placed strategically centre right in bright blue letters. Imagine your daughter or any middle school girl with the testosterone dosage in her head! [...]

As for the damage of this lifestylethere are a growing number of studies (e.g. here), but Aydian's presentation to middle school boys and girls falls into the category 'story of adversity and resilience'. Aydian obviously left out the details regarding thehysterectomy or the reasons behind the intervention.

American school classrooms are an important frontier to conquer [...]. Many other states are destined to go down this road and the National Standards of Sex Education are another avenue to supply the burgeoning transgender industry with young, fresh patients who will fill the surgical rooms of gender clinics. These standards were produced by the Siecus and by Advocates for Youthwhose roles change over the years to promote the latest agenda sexuality of the moment. 'Sex education for social change' is the slogan added to Siecus in 2019.

The influencers are the propaganda machine of an industry. They are supported by technology platforms, corporate media and an industry that sells headbands to hide breasts (binder), fake fouls (packer), sexual products, drugs and harmful surgery. Sucked in down the rabbit hole of transgender medicine often as children, are now adults selling harmful lifestylesdespite the fact that most have no medical training.

They should not be on YouTube, let alone in American classrooms. American children are born in the right bodies and are 'enough' as they are.

SPAIN: SOCIALISTS AGAINST THE TRANS LEY
Unlike their Italian counterparts from the PD and the left who stand for free gender identity, the Spanish progressives break with the PSOE's transactivist policies in defence of women and children. In their manifesto the excellent arguments against what, if passed, could be the worst transactivist law in the world
Breaking with its party, the PSOE, and sending a signal to the women of the European left, who are generally aligned in defence of transactivist diktatism, the Federación de Mujeres Progresistas launches a courageous manifesto against the Trans Law wanted by the governing majority in Spain (PSOE and Podemos) and being approved by an emergency procedure, without an effective parliamentary debate or a wide public discussion. The initiative also comes in response to the clamorous break between historical Spanish feminism -united in the Contraborrado cartel- [...].

Perhaps gender identity does not exist
If it is the biologist Anna Fausto-Sterling, the first to speak about it in the 1990s, the inspiration of Judith Butler and the founder of gender theory, who is in doubt, then perhaps we are at a clamorous and definitive turning point. Stop trans laws before it is too late!
If Judith Butler is The Queen of Gender, Anna Fausto-Sterling is its goddess: zoologist, biologist and lecturer in gender studies -now at Brown University- starting from the rare genetic condition of intersexuality in the early 1990s, she was the first to attack the concept of sexual binaryity, arguing that sexuality is a spectrum and that at least five sexes can be identified ('come on, it wasn't a theory, I was being ironic, it was just a provocation' she later said. But in vain). [...]

Trans-Europe: Ireland, UK, Spain, gender laws high on political agendas
While the new British Prime Minister Liz Truss works to block gender self-certification in Scotland, the Iberian government prevents the parliamentary debate on the Ley Trans, which allows sex change even for 12 year olds, to go for approval in a hurry: that is why Spanish feminists break with the left and open dialogue with the Popular Party. Meanwhile in Ireland a professor is arrested for refusing to use fluid language
A teacher at an Irish Christian school, Enoch Burke, was suspended and then arrested for refusing to name a transgender student with a neuter pronoun. Meanwhile, new British PM Liz Truss is reportedly trying to block Scotland's plans to allow self-identification for transgender (self-id) people and has asked lawyers for advice on how to 'pause or prevent' the reforms. Truss, head of the equalities brief as well as a former foreign minister, was instrumental in ruling out [...]

Elizabeth, the last matriarch
The missing queen wielded her power so skilfully that it was invisible. A profound influence that never backfired. Wisdom, an iron sense of duty, pragmatism, emotional control and no narcissism: these are the traits of sovereignty that make her a model of female authority
Gaby Hinsliff for The Guardian Stop all watches. Unplug the phone. For once, the opening lines of WH Auden's poem, Funeral Blues, seem appropriate to the moment. Like it or not, much of public life will come to a halt in the days of mourning as broadcasters suspend their programmes and a state funeral is prepared. However long it may have been predicted, the death of the longest reigning monarch in British history is a moment [...]

Italian Society of Paediatrics: stopping puberty in dysphoric children does not cause permanent problems. But several studies prove otherwise
UK, Sweden, Finland, USA: much of the world is up in arms against puberty blockers that can irreversibly damage the health of girls and boys. The Tavistock clinic in London is closing down, a thousand families are preparing for a class action in defence of their daughters and sons who have not been properly treated, many American paediatricians are attacking their trade association which is pushing for the administration of these drugs. But for the Italian paediatricians' society these problems do not exist
According to the Italian Society of Paediatrics, the effects of puberty blockers used to treat girls and boys with gender dysphoria are perfectly REVERSIBLE: this means that if the girl/boy changes her mind about her intention to 'change sex' and suspends the 'therapy', her development will resume normally, without any definitive effects and/or health problems. This is not the case at all. The effects of puberty blocker therapy are by no means 'completely reversible', as has been demonstrated by several [...]

California, transfusion of children
The American state proposes itself as a 'health' tourism destination for minors who are unable to access transition where they live. Exempting the parents and relieving the operators of any risk of litigation in the event of subsequent 'repentance'. Meanwhile in the UK, after the closure of the Tavistock, eyes are on a Scottish clinic where the experimental model (puberty blockers and surgery) continues to be applied
There is a real war going on in the United States over the ideology of gender identity and its promotion in schools. A 'culture war' pitting the elites, who fund and promote gender ideology, against the ordinary people who oppose it (see the Disney case here). While Biden from day one has made many legislative concessions to trans activism at the federal level, the Republicans have intercepted the discontent of the citizenry with various counter-legislation at the state level, such as [...]
