R2 Richard/"Rachel" Levine IS a straight white man. He is a classic paraphiliac autogynephile: (ex-)wife, kids, "discovered" that he was actually a woman in his 50s, fabricated the classic autogynephile sob story about how he "knew" he was a "girl" since he was a child (admitting that he gets off to the idea of being a woman would be too gross), is literally just a man in a dress, etc. The fact that he is a pediatrician is nasty as fuck.

R7 No doubt this guy was a cross dresser/fetishist since puberty and then furthered his fetish into becoming an autogynophile.

Biden is not going to pick a sexual fetishist for surgeon general. Our surgeon general needs to be focused on the pandemic and other health issues and not what color lacy panties should he wear to the next press conference.

People have accused gays of being "fetishists" - you'd think some people here would have more empathy.

by Anonymousreply 1711/19/2020

R17 If by "fetishists" you mean "pedophiles", you would be correct. There's only one problem here: since the 80s, scientific research has shown time and again that there is no evidence that proves gay people are more likely to be pedophiles or molest children than their heterosexual counterparts. Blanchard's transsexual typology, however, is still being researched and multiple studies have supported it.

r18, I wasn't even talking about the pedophilia accusation, which we all know is bullshit. A lot of backwards people think homosexuality in and of itself is an abberration and a perversion. Just like backwards GOP losers who troll here attack trans people.

Our current surgeon general is a closet case asshole who initially dismissed Covid as less harmful than the flu. Pretty much anyone would be an improvement.

by Anonymousreply 1911/19/2020

The majority of men who identify as trans, like this lovely fellow who wants to genocide gay children, are autogynephilic fetishists. They are aroused by women’s oppression. All of the sex stereotypes and bodily functions and social degradation that women have been fighting against since the dawn of civilization are what gives them boners. Part of the fetish is forcing women to non-consensually participate in their fantasy of being subjugated “like a woman”. These are the ones who commit most of the brutal attacks, rapes and murders of women that you hear about in the news.

Well you better start writing to Biden people and express your objections.

State clearly that you are a Democrat and gay. Do not sound hysterical. Just the facts and science. Demand to know what this person's views are on transing children, puberty blockers, etc.

Didn't this person fight to get a male to female transgendered person into a women's prison?

by Anonymousreply 2111/19/2020

R19 There is no scientific evidence that shows gay people are more fetishistic or paraphiliac than their heterosexual counterparts. Meanwhile, like I've already mentioned, autogynephilia is still being studied (under increasingly hostile and censorious academic environments, see: the Lisa Littman and James Caspian scandals) and has been observed and confirmed in multiple studies. So ultimately you are just repeating a false equivalence.

by Anonymousreply 2211/20/2020

Worse. His speciality is adolescent eating disorders, for which 95% of the patients are tween and teen girls. Girls often begin eating disorders as a means of halting their sexual development, or to avoid or discourage unwanted sexual attention. Many ED patients are sex abuse victims.

Sorry, I find that being his speciality to be creepy.

r33 holy fuck, I did not realize that. That's awful!

by Anonymousreply 3411/21/2020

r33, also, there is a direct link between children with ED who suddenly decide they are Trans. In fact, when the EDs are treated, properly, the desire to switch 'gender' disappears in most of these kids. However, with The Affirmation Only Model, therapists are not even allowed to suggest co-morbid disorders could be playing a part in the dysphoria and often they are completely unable, legally, to engage in any subject other than agreeing with these minor patients that if they don't like their bodies they must be trans. Many desisted girls and women have spoken about how their eating disorders were ignored and how transing made them worse.

by Anonymousreply 3511/21/2020

R35, a lot of homophobes would claim that all gays are sexual abuse victims or suffered some sort of trauma and that if they went through therapy they'd magically turn straight.

You guys say that kids shouldn't be allowed to transition even if they want to, because kids don't know what's best for them. Homophobes think it should be legal for parents to put kids through "ex-gay" therapy even if the kid doesn't want to, because kids don't know what's best for them.

As a Pennsylvanian, I can tell you in her role as Director of Health she has focused almost exclusively on the Covid pandemic, and before that was focusing on the opioid crisis. "Trans issues" are not her Public Health area of interest.

So if a child wants to start smoking, because they really, really want to— that’s fine? A child wants to quit school and work a 9-5 job— sure, go ahead? A kid wants to have sex— I see where this is going.

Conversion therapy is wrong. Attempting to convince a child they are the opposite sex is it’s own conversion therapy. Sad that you don’t see that.

R26 And those "studies" were baseless and politically motivated. Meanwhile, multiple rigorous studies have confirmed the existence of autogynephilia. Even research conducted by self-described autogynephiles like Anne Lawrence have observed it. Are you going to deny reality? Are you going to deny the sheer, observable fact that there is a segment of the male population that is aroused by the idea of being a woman?

Your whole point is basically "science was wrong in the past, which means it is wrong again about x". That is the exact same "argument" that Scientologists use to discredit psychiatry.

Here's another AGP discussing it:

R36 FACT: Science has shown time and again that 80-90% of the children who experience childhood gender dysphoria (if not put on a transgender path by sycophantic families and doctors) will outgrow their dysphoria and become gay and lesbian adults. [Sources: Jameson L et al (2013). "Endocrinology Adult and Pediatric: Reproductive Endocrinology". Marcdante K et al (2014). "Nelson Essentials of Pediatrics E-Book". Dulcan MK (2015). "Dulcan's Textbook of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Second Edition"]

Advocating for the transing of children is equivalent to advocating for the eradication of gay people.

"So many potentially gay children were being sent down the pathway to change gender, two of the clinicians said there was a dark joke among staff that “there would be no gay people left”."

"“It feels like conversion therapy for gay children,” one male clinician said. “I frequently had cases where people started identifying as trans after months of horrendous bullying for being gay,” he told The Times."

"Several clinicians suspected that some of the “transgender” adolescents were reacting to homophobia at home."

"“For some families, it was easier to say, this is a medical problem, ‘here’s my child, please fix them!’ than dealing with a young, gay kid,” the third female clinician said. At the service’s “family days”, a parent was allegedly heard saying that they did not want their child to have gay friends because they “didn’t want them mixed up in that hedonistic lifestyle”. “It is converting people into heterosexuals,” one of the clinicians said."

Transitioning kids is gay conversion therapy, r36. Transitioning is the conversion of bodies into something they're not.

r60, yes, most of the ones on twitter and reddit etc lobbing rape and death threats at actual women are young MRA incels who through sissy hypno porn decided the only way for them to get laid was by trying to force sex from lesbians. I have never seen a middle aged black or hispanic AGP. I'm sure they exist in some small number. But all the ones I've seen either in crime reports for raping or murdering women or for pedophilia etc have all been straight white guys, from their teens through antiquity.
