Girls who remove their breasts
Transactivist propaganda invites girls who are uncomfortable with their female forms to compress their breasts with special bands (binders), the first step towards the final mastectomy. The same misogynistic violence as traditional "breast ironing" practiced in Africa. In the UK, the Mermaids charity - publicly funded - is accused of sending slings to teenagers against their parents' advice

Breast ironing (breast ironing) it is a horrible practice still used in some regions of Africa, particularly in Cameroon. It's about the destruction of adolescent breasts produced with red-hot instruments -old irons, spatulas, stones or shells- and generally practiced by the adult women of the family. The purpose is rend the less attractive girls to save them from rape and early pregnancies that could tarnish the honor of the family group. Practice causes serious damage to health of adolescents, from cysts to tumors. It is estimated that in Cameroon one in 4 girls undergoes the treatment but in some regions, such as in the Douala area, more than half of adolescents are subjected to the practice. In some cases, instead of ironing, iron is used less bloody bandaging or dressing (binding).

Without the binder and with the binder

Similar practices are spreading in the West, despite breast ironing being prosecuted as a crime and child abuse: from bandaging to total surgical removal (top surgery) to which a growing number of girls are asking to be subjected. The binder is the step before top surgery.

The British trans organisation Mermaids -a “charity” for gender non-conforming girls which has received £500,000 in public funding, is supported by Starbucks and Wagamama as well as Prince Harry and actress Emma Watson- is under investigation after he reportedly offered breast “gatherers” to teenage girls against their parents' wishes.

There Charity Commission claims to have “opened a regulatory compliance case. We have written to the administrators of Mermaids. We are now waiting for their response."

Second The Telegraph, Mermaids offered a breast-flattening device to a 14-year-old girl whose mother had denied her permission to swaddle.

A binder is a spandex corset that compresses the breasts along with the ribs and lungs. It's hard to breathe when you have one on, you feel dizzy, you have headaches and you shouldn't wear one during exercise: in fact trans lobby groups advise schools to exempt girls who bandage themselves from sporting activities. THE binder they damage developing breast tissue, cause irritation, skin infections, muscle atrophy and even fractured ribs. Yet in the chat room of Mermaids one parent says she wants to buy one to ease her 11-year-old daughter's developmental anxiety.

Second TheTelegraph the Mermaids online help center also assures teens that puberty blockers are safe and “totally reversible.” But the NHS, on its website , he claims: "Little is known about the long-term side effects of hormones or puberty blockers in children with gender dysphoria.". Rather, it is known that the effects of blocker they are largely irreversible, and this is precisely why they are abrupt slowing down their use in the UK, in the European Far North and in Australia.

As we all know the moment your breasts appear is a delicate transition, you suddenly find yourself being a sexual object and struggle to take the measures of your new female corporeity. You hide, you hunch over, you often try to stop the process with disastrous weight loss. Now the transmarket offers you another path that is sold as progressive and courageous. You can have your breasts removed outright, and you eliminate the problem: it's the next step after anorexia.

Top surgery about a “gender non-conforming” girl

Just search #topsurgery on Instagram and find thousands of little girls with short hair showing bruises and scars, their nipples removed to be sewn up or tattooed. Some pose with the smiling surgeons next to them. A doctor photographs himself with jars of breast tissue in formaldehyde. Another in Miami boasts of cutting off 40 pairs of breasts a week, or, to put it more casually, “erase boobs”.

Most of these surgeries are performed in the United States, where breast removal is a colossal business and children's hospitals will perform mastectomies at 13 years old. There is no minimum age required, says Los Angeles pediatrician Johanna Olson-Kennedy, because if a patient regrets she can always "get the breast later."

Autistic girls would make up a third of those seeking contact with gender clinics.

Bindings And top surgery they are misogynistic violence that wants to erase women. AND they should be outlawed like breast ironing.

Transactivist propaganda must be stopped. Hands off the transfer from our girls.
