Puberty should perhaps be stopped at ALL: Transhuman drift of the World Health Organisation

In a veritable Christmas blitz, the WHO announces that it wants to draw up new gender-affirming guidelines and sets up a panel made up of three-quarters transactivists in favour of medicalising children. Preferably all of them, even those who do not suffer from dysphoria. Because choosing what sex you are must become a universal right. An international petition calls for a halt to the initiative

A few days before Christmas the World Health Organisation (WHO) announced which will develop new guidelines on the 'health of trans and gender diverse people', with a focus on access to hormones and surgery (what it calls 'gender-inclusive care'). ') and the legal recognition of thegender self-identification (self id).

The WHO also announced have formed a group to develop the guidelines. This expert group includes many of the World Professional Association of Transgender Health (WPATH) apparatchiks, tincluding two former presidentstrans activists employed by the Global Action for Trans Equality network, or GATE; the parent of a child who identifies as trans; and at least one member with strong links with the pharmaceutical industry. Out of 21 members, more than three quarters are transactivists.

Some of the panelists have particularly picturesque public profiles, none more so than Florence Ashley (pictured top) 'transfeminist jurist and bioethicist' whose favourite pronouns are "Them/Them/That bitch ". Ashley considers which 'puberty blockers should be treated as the default option' for ALL young people, instead of 'letting puberty take its course'. The activist argues that letting this stage of human development progress uninterrupted "strongly favours cis-incarnation, increasing the psychological and medical cost of the transition'.

"Puberty blockers structurally place the transgender and cisgender hormonal future in an approximate symmetry. Young people taking puberty blockers have their options wide open, their bodies are not altered by either testosterone or oestrogen. Although much remains unknown about the long-term effects of puberty blockers, the limited empirical evidence and clinical experience make us more than justified in believing that, whatever risks puberty blockers pose, they do not preclude future life paths as much as puberty does.

In short: Natural puberty is much more dangerous than 'artificial development' produced by the use of blockers followed by cross-sex hormones and surgery, because only the latter path guarantees freedom. E Today, freedom is first and foremost freedom to decide what sex you are: For years now, adolescents have been bombarded with this transpropaganda (ed.)

Besides being absurd, the proposal does not take into account the possible effects of puberty blockers on adolescent brain development. We still do not know how the suppression of sex hormones that stimulate cognitive development during puberty affects factors such as impulse control, emotional regulation, critical thinking and decision-making. Furthermore, evidence suggest which blocking puberty could 'lock' children into a trans identity instead of gaining time and space to think.

According to some pioneering studies puberty blockers, in addition to the various side effects already established, from bone demineralisation to impaired fertility, would also interrupt brain maturation, halting the development of neural connections and compromising myelinisation: in the table below the effects of the puberty blocker Lupron on a 3-year-old Brazilian boy, ed.

La pubertà forse andrebbe bloccata a TUTTI: deriva transumana dell'Organizzazione Mondiale della Sanità

Ashley first denies then admits the possible role of social influence on/on minors: 'If the increase in transgender identities points to a social contagion - a claim that I have shown to be unfounded - it could nevertheless be a healthy contagion'. 

Another speaker, Teddy Cook, described the "actual side effects of gender-affirming medical treatments" as "significantly better quality of life, significantly better health and well-being outcomes, a dramatic decrease in distress, depression and anxiety and a substantial increase in gender differences' concluding that 'we do not run the risk of harm by asserting our gender'. 

The panel members supervised the controversial inclusion of eunuchs, as well as theexclusion of a draft chapter on medical ethics from latest standards of care of WPATH . In short, many of them have significant personal, intellectual and professional conflicts of interest that may interfere with their ability to evaluate evidence when it leads to uncomfortable situations. 

Conflicts of interest are inevitable, but balance matters. There are no critical voices on the WHO panel, concerned doctors, child and adolescent development experts, neurodevelopment specialists, desisters and detransitioners

The organisation also opened a short window for public comments during the Christmas holidays, a window that will close just two days after Epiphany. If Friday afternoon is the best time of the week for spreading bad newsthe Christmas and New Year period is the ideal time to solicit public comment if you want as few people as possible to intervene, of course. 

The World Health Organisation has a responsibility to facilitate - not anticipate - an open, transparent and scientific dialogue on the risks, benefits and unknowns surrounding the most effective and ethical treatments for patients with gender dysphoria. 

At this point, the process would require starting from scratch.

The 'milk' of men
The English National Health Service ensures that the milk produced by a male body -stimulated with ad hoc drug therapy- is as good for the newborn as that of its mother, who is wiped out. Minimising the risks to the child's health largely offset by the ideological and symbolic benefits. It is the transhuman, my beauties!
Men's 'milk' is a perfect example of what we call transhuman. Women's milk, on the other hand, is human, all too human, it is the perfect model of the enduring human, and therefore natural breastfeeding should be degraded, mocked, stigmatised as something to be ashamed of and kept hidden. In fact, it is even a useless and unethical act. On the contrary, promoting and magnifying male 'breastfeeding' shows plastically the way forward. According to the prestigious journal Pediatrics, organ of the American Academy of Pediatrics, it is 'risky' to define [...]

How to convince progressives to give up gender
Terrified of transactivists and worried about sounding 'right-wing', left-wingers support the transition of minors even in the absence of studies showing that 'affirmative therapy' works and promotes the well-being of gender non-conforming girls and boys. "But everyone has a right to evidence-based medicine," argue some liberals determined to "break the spell". And they start DIAG -Democrats for an Informed Approach to Gender- to convince democrats in the US and around the world that continuing on this path is wrong and dangerous. For children and for the left. An article by Bernard Lane
A new movement of US Democrats wants to find out how to break the spell of gender ideology and bring the party back to the liberal values of science and reason. Democrats for an Informed Approach to Gender (DIAG) launched a project yesterday on X Space (Twitter) to commission research on how to more effectively reach out to left-wing voters who believe that science is now in favour of 'gender-affirming' medicalisation of gender non-conforming youth. "The only way to end this [...]

New York Times: Strong doubts about hormones for children with gender dysphoria
The world's leading woke newspaper has always unhesitatingly supported transactivist demands, starting with the indecent treatment of JK Rowling. Today the paper changes course and in a very long article criticises the 'affirmative therapy' (puberty blockers, hormones and surgery) for trans minors, giving a voice to some hitherto censored and ostracised detransitioners. Because by now even many Democratic voters have strong doubts. And there is a risk of losing many readers: "get woke, go broke".
For years, the New York Times has been the world's leading woke newspaper and has always unhesitatingly supported transactivist demands, jubilating critical voices. The treatment of JK Rowling is exemplary. In 2022 a very violent subscription campaign invited people to imagine Harry Potter without its creator: the ultimate in cancel culture (see here) A misogynistic and aggressive gesture - the initiative turned out to be a boomerang and many female subscribers threatened to cancel -. A few months ago The Daily published [...].

Men IntintA and other wonders
The health of 'Marco', a trans FtM who is five months pregnant with testosterone, and that of her baby are the least of the problems. What matters to the liberal press talking about an 'anthropological revolution' is whether 'Marco' is to be called mother or father. But only a woman can give birth even if at the registry office her name is male. In this nothing has changed since the dawn of time. In the meantime, the trans front is losing ground: in one year, the number of members of WPATH, the largest transgender health organisation, has fallen by 60 per cent.
La Repubblica online headlines with a triple somersault about the 'young man who got pregnant': pregnant is not dared even at the transphilic GEDI group. The story is that of 'Marco', a girl undergoing testosterone therapy to look more like a man: beard, graver voice -not to 'become male' because sex cannot be changed and every single cell will remain damned XX-. 'Marco' had retained his uterus and ovaries and following a hetero sexual relationship (a [...]

Child rapists: shock report in UK
In Great Britain, 18 rapes a day are committed by minors on their peers: in 2022 these cases numbered 15,000, almost always by very young males. A British police report shows how free access to violent pornography online is normalising criminal sexual behaviour in England and all other Western countries
For years, we have been reporting on the psychological and material damage produced on an entire generation by free access to violent online pornography, consumed by boys and girls from the age of 7 but also much earlier: gang rapes committed by minors are just the tip of the iceberg of this dramatic phenomenon, which has now been analysed and quantified by a study by the British police. On this topic you can find previous articles here, here, here and here. We were almost only [...]

New Hampshire: No more 'sex change' surgery on minors
The US state has passed a bill banning surgeons from performing operations on under-18 year olds such as the removal of ovaries and breasts for females and penises and testicles for males. The bill states that these operations violate the patient's 'informed consent' and points out that studies have not shown a decrease in the suicide risk of minors after the operations. On the contrary: the danger increases
New Hampshire is preparing to ban under-18s from undergoing sex-change operations. Last Thursday, the New Hampshire House of Representatives passed a bill to this effect, also with the help of some Democratic members. House Bill 619 prohibits doctors from performing 'any genital gender reassignment surgery', i.e. the removal of the uterus, ovaries and breasts in the case of women; testicles and penis for men, to anyone in the [...]
