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.

Petrillo: my body doesn't count, I want to use women's showers. And withdraws from the Torun World Championships for reasons of 'safety'
Winning competitions is not enough: Petrillo also claims to use the women's changing rooms after the Italian Athletics Federation at the request of female athletes decided on reserved spaces. "The state recognises me as a woman, male genitals don't count. Besides,' she sneers, 'it certainly won't be the first time they see them. In the meantime, she renounces the next world championships for 'security' reasons.
A few days ago, we published a report on the competition of Valentina born Fabrizio Petrillo in Ancona, with the reactions of the female athletes beaten by her male body. The female athletes made it clear that, although they respected Petrillo's personal journey, athletically they were not on a par and that they felt discriminated against. The statements made by the female athletes to the Feminist Post were taken up by other newspapers, including Il Giornale (here), and provoked comments from Petrillo, who had [...]

'We were wrong': pioneer of puberty blockers admits damage
Susan Bradley, a Canadian psychiatrist who founded a clinic for 'dysphoric' minors in the 1970s and an authority in this field today states that the switch from psychological therapy to drugs was a big mistake. Because their effects are severe and not reversible, because those treatments are 'authoritarian' and experimental. And because in 9 out of 10 cases children's dysphoria is only temporary and masks other disorders.
In an interview with the Daily Caller News Foundation, Dr Susan Bradley, a Canadian psychiatrist and a pioneer in the treatment of gender dysphoria in children, spoke out against the popular model of affirming children's transgender identities and treating them with puberty-blocking drugs, a practice she had participated in in the past. Bradley had opened a paediatric clinic in 1975 for children suffering from gender dysphoria, a profound sense of unease concerning the [...]

The men's ultracorp of the transatlete Petrillo continues to win everything. Opponents react
Valentina née Fabrizio once again outclassed her opponents in Ancona on 12 March. She now has eight master's titles, whereas before the transition - when she competed with the men - she had not even won one. Now she is preparing for the world championships. Here a summary of the races and statements from the athletes unjustly deprived of victory
Valentina born Fabrizio Petrillo, born in 1973, turns 50 this year and changes category in national masters athletics competitions. On 11 and 12 March in Ancona, she competed for the first time in the F50 category, i.e. with female athletes aged 50 to 54. And again, with her ultra-masculine body, she easily racked up trophies and records that used to belong to female athletes. But what is it like to see a live ultra-male body competing against female bodies? What are [...]

Prefect to Mayor Sala: stop registering children of same-sex couples
The decision makes those girls and boys more equal and not unequal as we read in many ideological comments today. Starting with the equal right to the truth about one's origins enshrined in all international conventions. And to the attribution of the same rights of citizenship granted to every new born: that is why
The prefect of Milan has ordered the mayor Beppe Sala to block the transcription of birth certificates of children born by same-sex couples. For example, it will no longer be possible to fully transcribe birth certificates produced abroad - in Ukraine, Canada, California, etc. - by surrogacy, which also applies to heterosexual couples who have undertaken this practice. We radical feminists had appealed to the prefect to order Mayor Sala to respect the [...]

Slavoj Žižek: puberty blockers are woke capitalism
The Marxist philosopher speaks of wokeness, the progressive cult of awareness and awakening, giving an evocative psychoanalytic reading of it. And warns that despite appearing under attack today we will have to deal with it for a long time to come
In an evocative article published by Compact, entitled Wokeness is here to stay -which we translate and partially reproduce here- the Marxist philosopher Slavoj Žižek tackles the subject of wokeness, the movement of 'awakening', analysing its critical aspects but also underlining the reasons why we will have to deal with it for a long time to come. Some argue that 'wokeness' is in decline. In reality it is gradually being normalised and conformed even by those who inwardly doubt it, and is practised by most academic institutions, [...].

Transsexuality is not a lunch for genderqueers
Being transgender is not transgenderism but a deeply dramatic experience with an uncertain outcome. Which has nothing to do with the stale stereotypes with which gender identity is expressed. Neviana Calzolari's reflections

Yet hardly mainstream, indeed among the most acute (and critical) observers of the social-political landscape of our times (...)
