It’s a difficult one for sure, but there are lots of treatments that are experimental. As long as the treatment is carried out in a proper manner and monitored, then things should be fine, but no one can analyse any data till there is any. When I took my first hrt pill on June 5th 1999, it felt good. I know that that one pill on its own won’t have changed anything per se, but it was a positive step in the right direction for me which made me feel positive for the future. These are kids taking these hormone blockers, so the monitoring will be high, as no health authority would want to risk bad publicity (that’s maybe the wrong word or meaning) that would result from any harm coming to children, at least that’s how I see it from the point of view of the NHS in England etc
In a recently published paper in The New Atlantis titled “Growing Pains: Problems with Puberty Suppression in Treating Gender Dysphoria,” authors Paul W. Hruz, Lawrence S. Mayer, and Paul R. McHugh argue that “the evidence for the safety and efficacy of puberty suppression is thin, based more on the subjective judgments of clinicians than on rigorous empirical evidence. It is, in this sense, still experimental — yet it is an experiment being conducted in an uncontrolled and unsystematic manner.”
According to the authors, “The claim that puberty-blocking treatments are fully reversible makes them appear less drastic, but this claim is not supported by scientific evidence. It remains unknown whether or not ordinary sex-typical puberty will resume following the suppression of puberty in patients with gender dysphoria. It is also unclear whether children would be able to develop normal reproductive functions if they were to withdraw from puberty suppression. It likewise remains unclear…

Good luck getting everyone genetically tested.
On June 12, H.B. 2796, the Civil Rights Uniformity Act of 2017, was referred to the Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice.
“This bill prohibits the word “sex” or “gender” from being interpreted to mean “gender identity,” and requires “man” or “woman” to be interpreted to refer exclusively to a person’s genetic sex, for purposes determining the meaning of federal civil rights laws or related federal administrative agency regulations or guidance. No federal civil rights law shall be interpreted to treat gender identity or transgender status as a protected class, unless it expressly designates “gender identity” or “transgender status” as a protected class.”
Well seeing as the chances of Gallus Mag ever approving one of my comments is about as likely as a snowstorm in hell, here’s my 2 cents that I’ll reblog on my own wordpress site.
SHE (because that’s what SHE is), was found guilty of the murder of 3 women. She will be sentenced to prison, probably for the rest of her natural life. She will be housed with other prisoners who have committed similarly brutal and horrible crimes. Just to make it clear, there are prisons for violent men and there are prisons for violent women because, there are violent men in the world, and there are violent women in the world or to put it more simply, there are violent people in the world. The way most of the commentators act on GenderTrender, you’d think that women never did anything wrong ever, well sorry to disapoint, but women are human just like men are human, and humans can do some truly horrible things.
From the UK Daily Mail
From Jonathan Glover of the Spokesman-Review:
“More than 27 years after their bodies were first discovered, a Spokane jury found Donna Perry, 65, guilty on three counts of murdering Yolanda A. Sapp, Nickie I. Lowe and Kathleen A. Brisbois.
Perry, who has sat quietly throughout the two-and-a-half-week-long trial with headphones in, scribbling on a piece of legal notepad, stared forward silently as Superior Court Judge Michael Price read the verdict aloud. She spoke briefly with her attorneys before being handcuffed and taken from the courtroom.
Family of the three slain women released tears of joy and hugged one another as they walked into the court house hallway.
Prosecuting attorney Sharon Hedlund praised the hard work of her staff and police officers involved in the decades-long investigation.
“We know it was a tough case, and we are obviously pleased with the verdict,” she said. “We hope…

Last night in Manchester at the MEN Arena (Manchester Evening News Arena), there was an attack at the Ariana Grande attack. At the time of writing, 22 people lost their lives, and 59 people we’re injured and rushed to local hospitals. The youngest victim of this attack was an 8 year old girl going to see her hero.
To the cowards involved in this attack. Fuck you. Whatever your reason or excuse for this attack and attacks like it, you are cowards, you will not win. Manchester came together last night in defiance of you, just as other places you have attacked have. Take a long hard look at yourself, whatever you are trying to achieve, this is not the way. The second you take up arms against innocent people you lose any argument you may have, regardless of it’s validity or not.
I’m not going to try and defend her actions, as they’re indefensible, she went too far, but to go that far, I would guess this wasn’t a one off incident, and was over a long period of time to push her over the edge. That being said, it still doesn’t excuse her actions, but it can explain them.
But lets just look at your own reporting on this. You constantly refer to her using male pronouns, you use her previous name which is no longer her legal name. When someone gets married and changes their name to that of their partners, you don’t keep reffering to them using their previous surname, that’s just disresptful.
Disagree with being trans or don’t like it all you want, but nothing will get better when we can’t show each other just a little bit of mutual dignity and respect.
Going to her bos may have been the better option, but there’s the fear that her bos would sack her, and I don’t know what legal protections may be in place where she is. I’ve had issues where I’ve worked before, not with other co-workers, but with customers in a pub I used to work in. I’d just transitioned, a few months ago, I was getting hassle from these same customers at college where I was, and they came into my pub and caused problems for me. Reluctantly, I told my boss who gave them a bloody good talking and embarased them in front of their parents to boot, while I stood by looking and feeling all smug about it. I think I was 23/24 and they we’re 16-18 In my current (or now previous) job, some people had apparently been talking shit about me behind my back. I didn’t know anything about this, but my boss stood up for me and told the people that we’re talking shit to shut the fuck up, or words to that effect. A friend told me about this, and it made me feel glad that my boss and friend had stood up for me, but he was only doing what any good boss should do.
Sorry I’ve gone on a bit there, but I highly doubt this was just a bit of teasing between colleagues, but the USA is the home of Jerry Springer and any nutjob can get easy access to guns so what do you expect to happen.
