How Failing To Butcher Your Child Became “Child Abuse”

Three females, which I believe is significant, took to the pages of the journal Pediatrics and argued that failing to have a surgeon mutilate your child (for a large fee) is child abuse.

The peer-reviewed paper is “Prohibition of Gender-Affirming Care as a Form of Child Maltreatment: Reframing the Discussion“, by Emily, Emily, and Rachael.

Those holding to Reality, which insists that a boy cannot become a girl with the stroke of a knife, and vice versa, say Emily, Emily, and Rachael, represent a “dangerous trend of transphobia and prejudice”. Long may this trend toward Reality last. But there are many indications it will not.

The form of their argument is of some interest, because it shows how bad, false, even preposterous ideas propagate in an expertocracy, our “managerial state”. One example will suffice:

Gender dysphoria (GD) is the distress resulting from incongruence between one’s assigned sex at birth and gender identity; not all TGD individuals experience GD. Gender diversity is a normal part of child development.2

That final “2” leads to a footnote, which is worth citing in full: “Coleman E, Radix AE, Bouman WP, et al. Standards of Care for the Health of Transgender and Gender Diverse People, Version 8. Int J Transgend Health. 2022;23(Suppl 1):S1–S259″.

Now once you have let yourself say, in earnest, “assigned sex at birth”, you have left sanity far behind, receding fast in the distance. That one man, or three women, go mad can be no surprise. Madwomen, like the poor, are ever with us. It is only in rare times that madness spreads like a disease, as it has with us. Madness has become The Law Of The Land in many Western nations. One is not required to be mad oneself, but one must at least pretend to be. Legally.

How did this all come to be? There has to be a reason for this particular form of lunacy, brutal, demonic and dysgenic in the extreme as it is, an evil doing no one the slightest good, caught on with such ease. And that reason is easy to see: it is the expertocracy, our credentialed managerial state itself.

You see what they have done. They have invented for themselves “degrees” in medical butchery. There are a score, and more than a score, of journals devoted to the madness. It is now a dug-in school of thought with its own budget lines and university programs. These programs will be almost impossible to eradicate by political means; and, indeed, we shall have to rely on what some of us jokingly refer to as the biological solution. We must suffer.

How did this come about? Today we look at the the first step, which was to accept the fallacy, ensconced in legislation, that only Experts, MDs and PhDs here, get to decide what metaphysics and philosophical systems we all must abide by. It makes no difference that most of these so-called physicians, shrinks, and sociologists (a word that has become its own joke) pretend that they are not offering philosophy, but science instead.

It is scientism and not science. For in Reality a male cannot become female: the thing itself is impossible. Not unlikely: impossible. But in scientism, and fantasy, desire may stand in for Reality in the name of science.

What this means is that when we complain that Experts are seeped in a deranged brew, our criticisms count for nothing because we do not belong to the credentialed core that created the system. Only they get to decide: that’s what the law says. And they certainly will not let us inside the credentialed gates, because we are not believers.

The whole is circular and self-referential, and perpetuates by only letting fellow madwomen in. I almost said “cultists”, for in many ways the entire perversion revolution operates like a cult. But there is no head. There is no one person, or even one organization, that can be taken out so that ordinary members lose faith. The decentralization of the expertocracy guarantees this.

I say “Science Is Not The Answer” because this is a fundamental truth. We cannot answer their bad science with good science. Can you climb the hill and shout, “Lo! My p is weer than yours! Surrender!” and expect them to surrender? This is not a war of science. This is a spiritual war, plain and simple.

Emily, Emily, and Rachel understand this, even if unthinkingly (and it is surely unthinkingly). This is why they conclude:

That children may be separated from their caregivers in certain states, on the basis of legislative efforts to classify [gender-affirming care] as child abuse, is abhorrent, misguided, and harmful.

Reality says cutting up and drugging a child senseless is abuse. They say it is “affirming”, and that we are the abusers for not letting “doctors” slip kids the needle. This is not a scientific battle. This is the war between Right and Wrong.

There are many reasons there is so much bad science, but the key explanation is that there is so much bad philosophy and even worse religion.

Tomorrow we continue with the second step.

  1. Question is “has this happened by accident or is it deliberate?”

    Deliberate, I would argue, as it appears to be emanating from a few elites in high places. Some say it was created after 2008 to distract the proles from the on-going financial collapse of the western world.

  2. I think your para:

    “How did this all come to be? There has to be a reason for this particular form of lunacy, brutal, demonic and dysgenic in the extreme as it is, an evil doing no one the slightest good, caught on with such ease. And that reason is easy to see: it is the expertocracy, our credentialed managerial state itself.”

    confuses agency with causation. Yes, these are the people driving the delusion, but it’s the delusion that matters, not the deluded.

    If you want to understand it, read Festinger – the original, not what people say he said. Remember that his goal was to understand how the NAZIs managed to get most Germans to go along with killing their own kids, neighbors, parents..

    If you then want to understand how that relates to socialist policy – start with my stuff under paul530.substack.com or see telearb.net for much longer winded earlier explication.

  3. Munchausen mommys and daddies sending their kids for play dates on the Island of Dr. Moreau

  4. Emily, Emily, and Rachel were assigned Expurt at State Fellatio School.

    They will be assigned damned at death.

    Let us hope they graduate from the latter as soon as possible.

  5. Brian–

    Yep, there’s definitely something to that. Some, perhaps many, leftist parents not only enable and affirm the gender delusion, they sport having a trans kid as a badge of woke cred to their leftist peers. That, and bragging about how many times they’ve had covid.

  6. “There has to be a reason for this particular form of lunacy, brutal, demonic and dysgenic in the extreme as it is, an evil doing no one the slightest good, caught on with such ease.”

    I could preach on sin being the root cause for hours. But, I will just share a nugget of truth from 1 Corinthians Chapter 3 KJV: The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.

  7. For those of you not familiar with my allusion to the 70s group “DEVO”, their hit; “Jocko Homo”, is not hard to track down.

  8. “Emily, Emily, and Rachael”

    The mind numbingly sad fact of the matter, not to mention the mind bogging irony, is that no longer can we even assume that “Emily, Emily, and Rachel” are indeed who they say they are, and that their names are not in fact of reality, Emile, Emeril, and Richard and their genitals mutilated themselves.

  9. “…in many ways the entire perversion revolution operates like a cult. But there is no head. There is no one person, or even one organization, that can be taken out so that ordinary members lose faith. The decentralization of the expertocracy guarantees this…

    “…There are many reasons there is so much bad science, but the key explanation is that there is so much bad philosophy and even worse religion…”

    One of the things that makes it so hard for ordinary people to grasp where we are headed, is that they assume there needs to be an actual organized conspiracy with orders being conveyed from some “top” down to all the loyal foot-soldiers. And this conspiracy would surely be impossible to keep secret. What they fail to grasp, is the power of a mindset, where myriads of adherents in myriads of positions of influence, however obscure, can be counted on to automatically understand in which direction they should push ANY policy or public advice issue. These adherents gravitate to these positions of influence (academia, journalism, bureaucracy), while non-adherents just get on with lives dedicated to productivity, family, faith, sport, non-political hobbies and clubs, etc. And the two groups exist in their own hermetic chambers without regular encounters with the other that might open the mind to the existence of it.

    Australian ex-Prime Minister Tony Abbot gets it when he says (in a book review in Quadrant Magazine, January 2024: “To people with a definite agenda, every crisis has the potential to advance it.”

    So why does this madness go as far as millions and millions of people who belong to the “progressive Left” movement, accepting at the very instant that the issue crops up for consideration, that “gender” is “fluid” and “birth assignation” is just another “construct” and ultimately potentially “oppressive”?

    A huge clue to the answer, can be found in the large subsets of humanity for whom progressive Leftism is non-existent – the Chinese, for example. They have a slang term, a pejorative that means “beyond crazy”: “Baizuo” for which the literal translation is “white left”. The Chinese do have “traditional values” that stand athwart this nonsense but those traditional values are not based on a GOD of the Bible whom people can choose to turn against, and hate, and insult by every possible occasion that can be sought. I find it hard to come up with any other explanation than straight-out temper tantrums against God and anyone who believes in Him.

    Maybe this is “the mystery of iniquity” to which St Paul alludes. As such, it is the Devil’s evolved polar opposite to “The Mystery” where Christ’s own can be counted on to hold to the same principles as each other; which has existed ever since Pentecost.
