Ideology v. Reality
BBC rejects Mermaids from Action Line list
Auntie, otherwise known as the British Brainwashing Corporation (BBC) has apparently quietly informed its LGBT Pride group that it is no longer going to include Mermaids, the campaigning charity for transgender children, in its Action Line list. The BBC no longer accepts Mermaids’ claims they can offer ‘appropriate’ advice to callers seeking help (see second section behind Times paywall, Winds of change htttps://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/the-travel-bug-cant-survive-with-this-virus-3lkqhmqll. Can it be that the cold wind of reality is at last blowing through the Beeb’s smog-filled corridors, dedicated to the promotion of inclusivity for everything – except that with which Auntie disagrees? The answer is clearly, yes, and though they appear to be spitting the equivalent of broadcasting feathers, the corporation is being forced to bow to increasing evidence that harm is being done by misdiagnosing vulnerable children who subsequently bitterly regret undergoing such irreversible and life changing treatment.
This change of policy is especially important, because it illustrates how deeply the terrifying malaise of transgenderism has affected British society. Aimed at nothing less than the dismantling and reconfiguration of our culture, its ideologues desire the entire destruction of the nation’s Judeo-Christian roots and heritage.
Mermaids is part of this. The beguilingly named organisation is one of the UK’s largest LGBTQ+ charities, claiming to support trans and gender diverse children, young people and their families (https://mermaidsuk.org.uk/about-us/). But their raison d’etre goes far beyond mere ‘support’ because their declared mission is to educate and inform wider society on issues of gender identity. To this end they have developed extensive educational resources for use in schools. Perhaps most significant of all, they have produced an infamous Trans Inclusion Schools Toolkit (https://mermaidsuk.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019.12/AllsortsYouthProject-Trans-Inclusion-Schools-Toolkit-Sept-18.pdf). Trialled first in Brighton and Hove it was then rolled out to other authorities across the country, such as Warwickshire and Oxfordshire where, in the latter, it was successfully subjected to legal challenge by a thirteen year old school girl on the grounds it was a potentially dangerous invasion of her privacy https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8301769/Schoolgirl-13-wins-court-fight-forcing-Oxfordshire-council-scrap-transgender-toilets-toolkit.html
Whatever is maintained, the toolkit is a tool for indoctrination, ruthlessly prioritising transgender rights under the guise of providing guidance for supporting transgender children and preventing transphobia.
If it weren’t so pernicious, such an overt attempt at brainwashing would be laughable. Tragically the drive to embed and normalise gender fluidity has been startlingly successful, as attested by the 4,000% increase we have seen over the last decade in children presenting with supposed gender dysphoria and seeking treatment (https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2018/09/16/minister-orders-inquiry-4000-per-cent-rise-children-wanting/) It is now an established fact that transgender treatment is harmful to children.
By the admission of specialists at the Tavistock and Portman clinic, the country’s only NHS clinic offering treatment to children and young people diagnosed with gender dysphoria, many children are mis-diagnosed, with no account being taken of related mental health problems like autism or abuse (https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2019/12/12/childrens-tranmsgender-clinic-hit-35-resignations-three-years/) This becomes even more shocking in the light of evidence that 90% of young children presenting with gender confusion will be perfectly happy with their birth sex by the time they reach adolescence. Small wonder then that the post transition suicide rate is 19 times higher than for their heteronormative peers (Long-Term Follow-Up of Transexual Persons Undergoing Sex Reassignment Surgery: Cohort Study in Sweden https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0016885) or that the numbers seeking de-transition are reportedly sky-rocketing, with many tragically saying the treatment has ruined their lives (e.g. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-50528473).
The truth is, children under 18- no matter how convinced they might appear at the time – entirely lack any capacity to make such life-changing and irreversible decisions. So vulnerable children must be protected from exploitation by groups such as Mermaids and Stonewall. even the NHS -seemingly 100% on the side of ‘reform’ – has now been forced to acknowledge the dangers. It has radically revised its Guidance to recognise that the effects of puberty blocking drugs, previously claimed to be fully reversible, are very far from benign. Indeed, the NHS now accepts that the psychological effects are unknown, while use of the drugs may result in irreversibly impaired brain development or even osteoporosis (https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/gender-dysphoria/treatment/).
For too long children have been unwitting guinea pigs in a dangerous social and ideological experiment designed to create a transgendered society, and now the harms of this malign creed are becoming all too apparent. It is surely time for the insanity to end.
