Another victim of the trans lobby and censorship by Medium.com, not to mention being repeatedly banned by Twitter, is Hacsi Horvath, a detransitioned man. From this site I linked to three of his articles on Medium.com, only to now find his entire account has been suspended. I was able to retrieve them from Google’s cache and archive them but in case they disappear from the archive and to give them more prominence, I am reproducing them here.

Ten things you’re not supposed to know about the transgender industry

Olson-Kennedy J, Warus J, Okonta V, Belzer M, Clark LF. Chest Reconstruction and Chest Dysphoria in Transmasculine Minors and Young Adults: Comparisons of Nonsurgical and Postsurgical Cohorts. JAMA Pediatr. 2018 May 1;172(5):431–436.

HEALTHY 13 YEAR OLD GIRLS GO UNDER THE KNIFE. At Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, transgender industry Dr. Johanna Olson-Kennedy refers healthy but confused teen girls as young as age 13 to the surgeon for radical mastectomy — “top surgery,” or “chest surgery.” Girls and young women will likely also have their uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes rooted out before too long. Many even go through outrageous surgical horrors to jerry-rig some sort of pseudo-“penis.” Because they’re “men”! Or at least, so they have been led to believe by the “trans” industry.

And what about the “women”? In the United States, boys who think they’re really girls can get their genitals de-fleshed and inverted to become a pseudo-“vagina” when they are as young as age 16. Surgeons say they would prefer to do these operations before the boys finish high school, because they suppose the parents would wait on these lads — oh sorry — “girls” — hand and foot during the several months of aftercare

Forget about waiting for years and years to get this party started, going to therapy or any of that nonsense. Many “gender” clinics in the USA go by the “informed consent” model — which means it’s really “on demand.” Health insurers now scramble to cover the greatest variety of unnecessary surgical procedures for teens and adults with the minor mental illness of “gender dysphoria.”

EPIDEMIC. The backdrop to this mayhem is that in North America, Britain, Europe, Australia and New Zealand, there is currently an epidemic of rapid-onset gender dysphoria (ROGD) in adolescents and young adults. It is called “rapid onset” but it could just as well be called “sudden onset.”Young people, primarily young women, are suddenly declaring themselves “trans” and demanding to “transition,” despite never previously having shown any confusion about their sex. Whole friend groups at school are “coming out as trans.” It is a social contagion, developed as young people ruminate (often with a friend) about how dissatisfied they are with their lives, and idealize their fabulous futures as members of the opposite sex. School adminstration lackeys of trans activist organizations have given them unparalleled access to kids in schools, and they have taken full advantage of it. The situation in the United Kingdom is much the same.

But transgender industry personnel utterly deny the existence of ROGD, despite abundant evidence for it. Why do they deny it? Because they are desperate for an innate, inborn, “opposite sex gender identity” to be a thing, nonsensical as that sounds. It gives the male transgenderists an “alibi”against the embarrassing truth, or so they hope.

PREDICTABLE. Meanwhile, even younger children continue to be “transed” at a nauseatingly high rate. Why? A fringe group of ideologue doctors promoting “affirmative care” has gained some influence these days. Their main mantra is to “listen to the child” — and make enormous life-changing decisions for that child, based on childish prattle. For example, if little Johnny seems to like sugar & spice & everything nice, that means he is a girl. If little Jenny seems to like snips & snails & puppy-dog tails, that means she is a boy. Hey, Johnny says “she” wants to “socially transition”! How fun!

Well, except that a study showed that children (especially boys) who “socially transitioned” were much more likely to “persist” into a drug-blocked puberty (which generally includes, at no extra charge, sterilization). Puberty-blocking drugs — an implant in the arm — are typically prescribed from around age 8 or 9. From around age 13, doctors hook the kids up with the hard stuff — a lifelong regimen of synthetic estrogen for the boys, synthetic testosterone for the girls. And soon: A horrific range of unnecessary surgeries.

WRONG TREE. Despite decades of “research” in which transgender industry scientists have tried to locate the source of “opposite sex gender identity” somewhere in the human body, the best evidence they can put together is wildly speculative at best, with huge gaps. Copious “spin” is used to cover over these gaps. Where they say “not completely understood,” you can take that to mean they have no idea. That’s because this “gender identity” doesn’t exist. It’s all just mind games, word-play and auto-suggestion. Transgender activists and their admiring “allies” in academia are desperate to prove that it does exist, because the alternative explanation — that perhaps they really do have mental illness —likely a personality disorder — is hard to bear. However, there should be no stigma or shame in mental illness. It is best to be honest with oneself.

ACCURATE. Until recently, “gender dysphoria” more commonly was called “gender identity disorder.” Most people understood this to mean something like “GENDER IDENTITY… (disorder).” It really should convey something more like this: “gender… IDENTITY DISORDER.” Because it is a disorder of identity, perhaps part of a personality disorder.

HYPEPeople who believe themselves to be “trans” are *not* at an extraordinarily high risk of suicide. That’s just the propaganda used to socially engineer society to give them what they want. Suicide attempt rates are higher than those in the general population, it is true, but they are similar to rates in other relevant sub-populations, such as people with mental illness and people who have been bullied. The extremely high rates of 40% or more that have been reported in the mass media were derived from surveys using faulty methods. It is surprising that well-funded transgender activist organizations would take such short-cuts and then report findings with a straight face, but that’s what they’ve done.

MANIPULATION. Nor are they at particularly high risk of being murdered. Middle-class male transgenderists in high income countries often sound the alarm, poor them, they are being murdered in droves. Except they’re not. A 2017 study that used data from the “Transgender Day of Remembrance” organization found that men who were considered to be “trans” became homicide victims in the United States at a similar or even lower rate to persons in the general population. A subsequent informal analysis compared country-specific “trans” homicide rates from the “Transgender Europe” organization to general population homicide rates from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime. Again, notwithstanding high numbers of homicides in some countries, the rates were similar around the world — the “trans” rate is comparable to that of the general population. If thousands of ordinary folks are being murdered in a given country, a proportional number of “trans” are murdered.

STRAIGHT. In high-income English-speaking countries, the vast majority of male transgenderists — as much as 90% of such men — are heterosexuals. They are straight transvestites, just as we’ve had in society for hundreds of years. In the past few decades, especially since the internet came along, large numbers of these men begin an illusory “transition,” in the belief that they can magically become “women” through taking synthetic estrogen. They typically have autogynephilia, defined as an erotic attraction to a fantasy image of themselves “as women.” Most of them claim to be “lesbians,” which is an impossibility because they are men. Indeed, a large proportion of these guys in recent years don’t bother having genital surgery. Instead, they speak of their “female penis” (sic)Even so, they aggressively pursue lesbians. When women reject them, they condemn the women as “bigots.” If they go on dates with other men, researchers suggest it is

DANGEROUS. It is not true that men claiming to be “women” are perfectly safe “nice ladies” in the presence of real women in sex-specific restrooms, locker rooms etc. There are numerous examples of male trans violence, voyeurism and other crimes in these and other settings. Indeed, there is evidence from a study in Sweden that even after their genitals had been surgically rearranged, men who claimed to be women had a similar conviction rate for violent crime as age-matched control group men. This rate was 18 times that of age-matched control group women. In other words, they “kept a male pattern of violent crime.” Unfortunately, much crime committed by male transgenderists nowadays is officially recorded as crime by “women.” Our crime data are being skewed terribly by politically-correct fear of “misgendering” these guys. Meanwhile, on the internet as well as in real life, they quite openly make violent threats to women.

REGRET. Although transgender industry activists and researchers claim that the rate of regret in “trans” people after surgery is extremely low, it is likely instead to be quite high. When regret is even assessed in follow-up studies, it is often defined in very narrow terms, e.g. there must be a notation about this in the patient’s medical record. Meanwhile, losses to follow-up are often quite high, well above the 20% levels that in other research would be an enormous red flag of trouble. After all, these patients need to take hormone drugs for the rest of their lives. How could 30%, 40%, 50% just be “lost,” in our high-tech world? They must be in care somewhere, right? Have they killed themselves? Possibly. Although suicide rates are not as stratospheric as trans propaganda would suggest, they are still at higher risk than the general population.

These are just a few of transgenderism’s “inconvenient truths.”

Yet another wave of narcissistic rage sweeps through Transworld

posted to Medium 28.01.19

It is striking to see history repeat itself yet again, as a new batch of elite male transgenderists and their admirers lash out angrily to rebuke heresy and punish heretics. The heresy to which I refer is that which stands obstinate in its opposition to transgender ideology’s “born this way” dogma, and rejects its ludicrous, flaky lucubrations. Among the masses of mincing men who insist against overwhelming evidence that they are actually “women,” any scientific evidence that remotely hints at a psychosocial etiology for “gender dysphoria” must be killed immediately with fire and its bearer exterminated. This is the cultish sacrament of male transgenderists: the ancient transcycle of narcissistic rage.

This time around, it is rapid onset gender dysphoria (ROGD) that must face TransWorld’s florid, torrid flames. A mob of petty tyrant transpals in petticoats gangs up to stifle academic freedom and tries to destroy the career of a highly regarded scientist, Dr. Lisa Littman of Brown University.

Given the irreversible nature of all current transgender intervention — drastic surgeries to remove healthy organs (breasts, uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes in women; testicles in men); not to mention other serious surgeries to create a pseudo-“penis” or pseudo-“vagina”); lifelong regimens of drugs that carry significant risk of cardiovascular events; and never mind that there has never been even one comparative study of cognitive-behavioral therapy or other highly applicable therapies to alleviate gender dysphoria without all the surgical & hormonal rigamarole — one might suppose that transgender activists would support Dr. Littman’s research.

One would be wrong. Instead, they are doing their best to suppress it. Wouldn’t it be better to weed out young people who didn’t quite realize what they were getting into when they ruminated themselves into the trans industry’s grotesque corridors?

It is an especially dangerous time for girls and young women who get the notion in their heads that they’re “trans.” Activist physician Dr. Johanna Olson-Kennedy of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles has referred at least two 13 year old girls for radical mastectomies of their healthy breasts, and many other girls aged 14, 15, 16. Olson-Kennedy actually promotes the idea that such girls should have this massive surgery as quickly as possible after their self-diagnoses, even before taking testosterone.

But this extreme risk of iatrogenic harm does not dismay today’s dress-up boys, not at all. Despite “trans” industry research having chased its tail and gone nowhere for decades, it is crucial to their egos that the world believe it’s “settled science,” people are “born trans.” Any intimation to the contrary triggers trans-tantrums.

Nearly 15 years ago, a different group of men who shared a common interest in intense mimicry of “feminine” stereotypes flipped their wigs and exploded in narcissistic rage when Dr. J. Michael Bailey of Northwestern University published “The Man Who Would Be Queen.” This book describes autogynephilia, an “erotic target location error” and an important motivating force in most male transgenderism. Autogynephilia is a paraphilia in which men fixate on fantasies of themselves “as women,” dressing themselves up in “feminine” habiliments and conducting predictable ancillary activities. It is a key characteristic of male transvestism. A large proportion of men who insist they are actually “women” were ordinary transvestites before they lost their grip on the frayed ends of sanity, and “transitioned.

Naturally, the men who were outraged that Bailey had let the cat out of the bag in a book written for lay audiences considered it right to send psychotic, obscene letters to his family and try to get him fired from his job. They did not succeed in the latter goal, but they certainly brought plenty of distress and discomfort to his family.

All these years later, the anti-autogynephilia propaganda of these activists has become a kind of translore, bedtime stories for the latest lads in lingerie. And they do not rage only against Bailey — no indeed. Equally shrill, even more deranged ranting is reserved for Dr. Ray Blanchard, who first conceptualized and described the varied dimensions of autogynephilia in his work with hundreds of patients at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) in Toronto during the 1980s and 1990s. And of course, for the high transcrime of suggesting that a sensible process of becoming more comfortable in one’s own body was preferable to an immediate transing of small children, menacing masqueraders actually did pressure CAMH bureaucrats to fire Dr. Ken Zucker, even after the transprop was shown to be false. (Dr. Zucker has since been vindicated, with an apology and a financial settlement from CAMH.) The lies they routinely propagate about all these men, as “received ideas” among transgenderists, are wildly untrue, and in many instances are libelous.

And now these frocked fools are pulling out the stops in attacking Dr. Littman, trying their hardest to humiliate her, destroy her credibility, destroy her career. They felt so threatened by the findings of this one little study that they mobilized their online mobs to disparage it and shove it down the memory hole. In reality, however, they brought this paper much more attention than it might otherwise have had, and likely helped raise the awareness of many.

There is no such thing as “trans”

posted to Medium 12.02.19 

There’s no such thing as “trans.” You’ve been lied to. Everyone is free to dress as they please, use any mannerisms and voices they please. However, it’s not possible to change from one sex to the other. “Gender” is the same as it always has been: Stereotypes of appearance, mannerisms and roles prescribed by society for each sex, respectively.

Good for you if you’re a man who feels most comfortable wearing a dress, painting your face, having perfect nails, whatever may be the variations on stereotypic “femininity” that make you feel better. It’s great that as a man you want to smash the whole “gender” system, or at least short-circuit it like David Bowie and Boy George used to do. Wear what you like; don’t give a shit what people say; and get people thinking.

But do you see what the problem is? You insist that you’re not a man at all, but some sort of “woman.” How depressing — how obviously incorrect — how boring. By maintaining this position — which no-one actually believes; probably not even you — there is a sense of waste. It’s like you perhaps aren’t smart enough to pick up the very basic piece of information: you’re male. Or maybe you’re just too crazy. No-one knows, but the whole charade quickly becomes tedious for everyone except you.

Because you’re not a woman at all. Having sexy feelings about women’s garments doesn’t mean you’re a woman. Yearning! Pining! Keening! “to be a woman” doesn’t mean you’re a woman. And taking hormone drugs, having drastic surgeries — all for nothing. You will just never be a woman. You’re going to need to understand that message very well.

And before you start to say that it doesn’t hurt anyone, you only want to pee, it’s just social fluff, you’re nice “ladies,” come on, please? live and let live OK? — It doesn’t work that way. It wasn’t as bad 30 or 40 years ago when cocks-in-frocks were extremely rare. Women often tolerated their presence in women’s protected spaces. Nowadays, however, someone has left open the barn door, and all the male farm animals are in rutting mode, running amok. Crazy, horrible things are happening. In part due to your activism and agitation about all things “trans,” thousands of women and men foolishly believe they’re really the opposite sex; and so do thousands of children.

These kids are given “puberty blockers” and then cross-sex hormones, which they will need to take for life. Girls age 13 are getting their breasts chopped off in CaliforniaBoys age 16 are getting their genitals mutilated until they superficially resemble those of women; but they are a crude facsimile, little more than a fuck-hole. The girls have the healthy organs of their reproductive systems — ovaries, uterus, fallopian tubes — hacked out around that time too. This is no joke or exaggeration: it’s happening. This depravity with the children will be shut down.

Men’s lives and women’s lives are radically different from one another, starting from the youngest days. Yet you insist your feelings and experiences are those of a woman.

Sure, some drunken fool at 3 am in the backstreets might “cat-call” you as you confidently & fearlessly stride past him (this secretly turns you on); or maybe your male boss recently stole one of your ideas and didn’t mention that it was yours. Many men who exhibit “trans” behavior claim that with such experiences, they “really understand the plight of women.”

To call this a disgusting insult to women doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface.

Your extreme cosplay also puts women and girls in danger. Men keep the same rate of violent crime as other men, even after they’ve had their genitals mutilated. Women in changing rooms, restrooms and other protected spaces cannot just assume you’re a “nice lady” — In Sweden, the male-pretending-to-be-female violent crime rate was 18x that of women.

Bizarrely, you cats demand that the word “woman” and “female” be replaced in all health messaging concerned with pregnancy and childbirth, pap smears, uterus, ovaries, etc. — Replaced e.g. by “pregnant people” — Even though only women, indeed only females of any mammalian species, have ever been pregnant in the past 200 million years.

Why? You feel “dysphoric” with rage that you are still not women, and never will be. And just as you want to replace those words, your real endgame is to exterminate and replace women with your own fake selves. After all, you’ve suffered so much being “misgendered” all your life — you’re so much more deserving of femininity’s wonders than mere “ciswomen.” The “trans” industry will continue to cock up functionless simulacra of women’s “body parts” for you to install, if you’ve got the loot — oh wait, I forgot: You’ll have it covered in your health plan. They may even take wombs from the bodies of the many confused young women who think they can change into “men.” And someday, crooked doctors will grow a fetus in a test-tube somewhere and stick it in your abdomen for a couple of minutes. The intense pleasures of your countless hours spent watching “feminizing” self-hypnosis and rumination videos will now seem old-fashioned. What debauchery.

As clinicians routinely observed for decades, until it became “transphobic” to do so, you guys have mental health problems. No shame in that — but you should get the right treatment. Transtreatment, based on fantasy, wishful thinking and misogyny, only makes you worse.

I’ve read all your “science.” It’s grossly over-interpreted and “spun.” The studies are completely rotten with selection bias, confirmation bias, attrition bias, conflicts of interest and other serious problems. You male transters also seem to die at much younger ages, even when overall mortality is similar to that of other men. Indeed there is zero credible evidence for benefit in the fake “transition,” for anyone. You’re part of a big, stupid societal experiment, just lab rats, and you love it. The whole enterprise is a fraud.

And despite your own massive, incalculable transgression in women’s lives, you were deeply enraged enough to write your Medium article: Another man has mimicked women in film — but his feelings are the wrong feelings. In your narcissism, you completely miss the irony of this.

Give it a rest. Don’t you see how comical you’ve become? Tragically comical. You’re in a cult. It’s time for you and all these other masqueraders to have a good think about emerging from the fake “trans” miasma. You can do it. I did it (I was 13 years 100% in the mix and “happy,” until one day I saw through the lies, and wasn’t). So you’d best get a move on.
