The Trans Child or The Eugenics of Gay Children


Green’s prospective study of gender-variant boys (1987) followed into adolescence and young adulthood found that 75% of those who could be reassessed had developed a gay or bisexual orientation, and only one was primarily transsexual. Subsequent studies of girls and boys have continued to find that the majority of gender-variant children grow up to have a homosexual or bisexual orientation rather than identify as transsexual (Drummond et al., 2008; Wallien & Cohen-Kettenis, 2008).

I’ve often said that gender, or rather gender expression doesn’t necessarily work in the favor of homosexual individuals. Gay men and lesbians are still regularly harassed and degraded  for exhibiting “signs” that they may be gay, because lets face it, most of the time we aren’t actually out in the streets being gay. We are targeted often because they go off of the notion that we are gay merely because of mannerism, speech patterns or appearance. This is why people all over are assumed to be gay when there is otherwise no reason for such a suspicion.

Many gay men can attest to being effeminate as children, as many lesbians can attest to being considered a tomboy. gays and lesbians just tend to fuck with gender, always have and I’m sure always will. Of course being gay isn’t the only precursor to gender nonconformity nor is it even a certainty, however it often seemingly goes hand in hand.

While gender nonconformity is something I actively encourage in anyone and everyone, there is something especially concerning with what can be termed as modern progressive parenting. I really appreciate some of what that puts forth in terms of child rearing. While I have absolutely no desire for children and am ill equipped to comment on how possible or impossible things like attachment parenting may be for most families, I like the idea of fostering that kind of development and there are many great and nurturing ideas in these styles of parenting.

However there is a disturbing trend now, that many of these parents are taking a interest in their children’s  gender identity. And, as the modern narrative seems to dictate, instead of merely encouraging and reaffirming who they are, they begin to prod with questions. Brain washed and submerged in  the conflation of sex and gender, I’m sure they think they are doing what is best, however research would suggest otherwise. If most of the kids that are gender non-conforming are actually just gay children and the trend is to continuously ask these kids questions like : “Are you a boy or a girl?” or if these children are imaginative, as children are, entertain the notion and humor them when they claim to be the opposite sex, then one has to step back and critically ask: What are you doing?

Puberty blockers are the topic of much controversy as many, including myself, see this as a form of child abuse while others see it as making things easier for transgender individuals by negating the development of secondary sex characteristics. The question that now must be poised though, is that, when most gender non-conforming kids are merely homosexual is the gun not being jumped on offering these kinds of treatments? If this becomes the de facto treatment surely we will see scores of kids who were merely misidentified as being trans, and most of those will be homosexual individuals. Is the trans child the eugenics of gay children?

Also, the poison that is many of these drugs must be accessed. We already know that synthetic hormones are carcinogenic. How can we, as society, as people take this risk with our young to appease our concept that “gender” is innate? That the boy who likes glitter and ballerina dresses is a girl because, of course, only girls would like that. Or that the girl who is out playing in the mud and has an affinity for softball is a boy because, of course, only boys are in to that sort of thing. Gender is not an innate correlation to any sex, we must stop pretending it is. Can we agree that boxes are harmful? Lets stop using them than shall we? We are human.

  1. If GnRH agonists (puberty suppression) is followed by cross gender hormones, infertility is an issue. The sterilization of children is often viewed as a human rights abuse. As to gay and lesbian eugenics, sex reassignment surgery is the preferred method in which Iran deals with its homosexual problem Thailand and Iran carry out the most SRS. In Thailand it’s cheap, and in Iran, gay men and lesbians are coerced into SRS as a way to “fix” them because homosexuality is punishable by death. Why would one of the most oppressive governments on earth pay for sex reassignment surgery yet execute homosexuals? It could very well be that western countries are carrying out a more subtle form of gay and lesbian eugenics.

  2. Issue One: Gay and lesbian eugenics

    History teaches us two things. First, medicine and psychiatry have always come up with some rather ghastly and ghoulish ways to cure homosexuality. From forced institutionalization to shock treatments and clitordectomies for unrepentent lesbians, some methods have been both incredible mind numbing barbaric and often inventive in a sick, twisted, and ghoulish sort of way Second, we know that there have times in history in which sex reassignment surgery has been used as a means of social control, specifically the erasing of gay and lesbian identity. This is happening in Iran as I type this post.

    Issue Two: The ethical issues surrounding the sterilization of children

    If a physician went to an ethics board and said that he or she was going go give drugs to healthy children that they knew would make them infertile, I don’t think it would go over very well.

    Treatment with puberty delaying drugs leads to sterilization if it is followed with the administration of cross sex hormones at 16 years, as the Brill and Pepper handbook on “transgender” children (2008), explains, “the choice to progress from GnRH inhibitors to estrogen without fully experiencing male puberty should be viewed as giving up one’s fertility, and the family and child should be counseled accordingly” (Brill & Pepper, 2008, p. 216). For girls, sterilization is the outcome too, because “eggs do not mature until the body goes through puberty” (Brill & Pepper, 2008, p. 216).

    Do parents have the right to compromise the future fertility of their children? This could be construed as a human rights violation.

    Deliberate delaying a normal part of human development, adolescence, because of what basically amounts to a questionable psychiatric diagnosis in healthy children assumes all the following:

    (a.) The diagnosis of “gender dysphoria” is correct to being with, and there isn’t something else going on in the child’s life.

    (b.) The child is completely free from any parental, peer, or cultural influences. How much is “gender dysphoria” in a 12 year old child, and how do we separate this from everything the parents read on transgender websites and blogs? How much is actual “gender dysphoria” or GID and how much is parental discomfort at having a child that doesn’t fit neatly into sex based gender roles?

    (c.) Children have the mental capacity to decide or choose for themselves.

    It’s a scientific fact that the pre-frontal cortex of the human brain which is sometimes called the judgment center of the brain isn’t fully developed until the early to mid-twenties.

    The prefrontal cortex, the part of the frontal lobes lying just behind the forehead, is often referred to as the “CEO of the brain.” This brain region is responsible for cognitive analysis and abstract thought, and the moderation of “correct” behavior in social situations. The prefrontal cortex takes in information from all of the senses and orchestrates thoughts and actions to achieve specific goals. This brain region gives an individual the capacity to exercise “good judgment” when presented with difficult life situations.

    We don’t let teenagers vote, buy alcohol, or take out bank loans, but they are supposedly mature enough to willingly give up their fertility and jeopardize their health.

    Besides infertility, I seriously doubt if people know the long term effects of GnRH agonists and cross gender hormones on developing adolescent bodies.

  3. I was always alarmed by the “That’s good enough” speech given by Debi Jackson, who transitioned her son aged 4 (how many 4yos know the difference between boys & girls is another question).
    She made a point of insisting her family were not “liberals pushing a gay agenda. Nope, sorry. I’m a conservative, southern Baptist republican from Alabama.”
    It seemed like a thinly veiled admission of homophobia, and I wondered just how many parents would prefer a daughter to a gay son.

    Eugenics is correct…as a Butch who was a hardcore tomboy I was constantly put under pressure to be feminine and under a psychologist help I know a big part of that was because I was refusing feminine roles. Nor were family members supportive once I did come out. I can feel in my bones the fear when I read raising them as boys .then giving them the hormone blockers and then the possibility of surgeries all because any sign of homosexuality IS NOT ok!!! Never wa I told there is a different way to be a girl than feminine and stereotyped…but I was anyway!!! And still played ice hockey and karate things girls werent doing much of in the 70s.

  5. I’m absolutely opposed to transitioning children I feel it in my bones because I resisted feminization I was a hardcore tomboy who was under a psychologist care and I know that was because I refused feminine roles and clothes. Yes I wanted to be a boy but that was because of the roles. it was never because I wanted a penis yuck. I was repelled by them. I did not like to domestic chores required or the feminine roles. or the feminine clothes. I played ice hockey the only girl on the team and I did karate which I still do. it’s all about socialization and there is nothing being done to question these roles or the products so heavily gendered being sold in kids’ departments in stores. Eugenics indeef. Because homosexuality is so scary to them.
