From Tania Marshall, in the comments below this hugely important video:

"As a Clinical Psychotherapist, I am deeply concerned about the mental health of this generation. They are in deep need of intensive therapy, removal from social media, time spent in nature and reality, a volunteering job, real life skills, positive role models, healthy relationships and healthy peers. They need intervention. Self identifying with mental health illnesses and self harm and the glorification is toxic and poisonous to the mind/ psyche and body. We have a mental health emergency. "

Just got banned for 30 days from Facebook for posting the above quote, as well as these words of warning of mine about the video: "

"Video here but a WARNING, some gruesome scenes in here, but this IS what so many kids are now doing to their bodies due to The Trans Cult."

WHAT is the point of Facebook these days? What is the point of most sites these days? Honestly, it's become ridiculous. I tried to appeal, but apparently, due to Covid, they've a shortage of staff dealing with appeals, thus, they are not able to help me. Yeah, right, FB. Once, the internet was a wonderful place. No longer.

Oh, btw, the reason for my ban is 'hate'. It's always 'hate', isn't it? WHERE is the 'hate' in my post, or the wise words of the psychotherapist...?

Hate = you are not following the party line.

Hate is unprovable. It's a joke.

I completely agree, this is a brilliant quote to highlight what's going wrong :(

Yes, that video is painful and difficult viewing!

Very profound quotes, including the last quote by Colin Wright ~"In my view this may be reality's last stand. if this undeniable fact that biological sex is real -can be denied en masse, this means we have lost our collective tether to reality and we become hostages to chaos."

I had to pause it at the 15-16 minute mark to collect myself. There is a montage of girls and young women showing off their new mastectomies. One of them had Downs syndrome. How can a surgeon have done this? How can a hospital ethics board not question this? It's mind-blowing.

I had to switch off at that moment as I couldn't continue. I'll watch the rest at some point but it's almost unbearable.

I couldn't watch it at all. I'm sorry. I just did lots of thinking instead *sigh*

Truly horrifying…but this piece needs to be watched by everyone. Mass hysteria doesn’t capture it; it’s frank psychosis.

The grown ups in the room need to stand up and take action to protect these vulnerable children and young adults from this horrendous movement and the irreparable injury that ensues.

Inadequate and innocuous terms like ‘top surgery’ and ‘bottom surgery’ should be removed from the lexicon.

Those who promote and profit from the mutilation of our children’s minds and bodies - the surgeons & various therapists etc - should be struck off their respective professional registers and held to account (both civilly and criminally).

So well made yet heartbreaking. Perfect timing to share widely before the upcoming "Conversion Therapy" ban.

It was difficult to watch that to the end, so many vulnerable young women being left to endure anxiety, confusion and pain. And offered 'treatments' which can lead to all these feelings being compounded as well as damaging their health, to near death in some instances. Where are the responsible adults who should be protecting them? They've been abandoned so that others can exploit them. Disturbing and heartbreaking.

Heartbreaking and terrifying

Really heartbreaking !! I've seen some of those clips on Exulansic but to see so many damaged kids on one video is truly shocking and deeply upsetting.! Can't understand how these " doctors "can live with themselves and continue to do so much damage to kids' healthy bodies. 👎😭😭.As for social media and the rich ,greedy tech giants who run it ,my opinions of them are unprintable and I don't normally swear. Something needs to be done to stop this ,urgently ,starting with Silicone Valley before a whole generation of kids succumb to this insanity !!👎👎

The tech valley crew don't allow their kids near mobiles and social media because of the harm it does - meanwhile they censor the effects on their platforms. I hope they are all sued to oblivion along with the surgeons.

Two moments got to me most. The first girl who was crying because “she was

So happy” when she revealed her angry, nipple-less scars just had a look on her face that was the exact opposite of happiness. It looked like absolute despair.

The second was the young girl who had undergone phalloplasty and said “I didn’t know what to expect but it wasn’t this. I felt like screaming at the hospital that I just wanted to go home”. And now it’s too late.

What a shocking and brutally honest film. It needs to be shown EVERYWHERE- mostly to teachers and politicians.

They're not trans activists are they? They don't give a shit about the backlash to the trans community or they wouldn't do things to harm it. There was a comment by Caitlyn Jenner - she doesn't understand why the trans swimmer would take a female place and risk harming the trans community. It got me thinking.

They aren't trans activists, not really, not anymore. They're men's rights activists, aren't they?

I wrote a post about it. Please read it and consider this idea. If we start calling them men's rights activists, their behaviour becomes really clear. Don't care about kids or women, just indoctrination and taking power about from women. It might be a way to crack the thing open!

Here's an article about a trans woman leading a MRA group. Just in case you needed proof that the two do actually go together

Yeah, I think calling them that out loud is important.

"You don't care about the well being of trans people, only about taking from women. So you're not a trans activist, you're a men's rights activist!"

I'm going to start leaving comments on things to that effect. I'm starting with the daily mail comments section. Anyone want to help? :)

Very good. Please let us know if there is a Book 2.

I wonder whether this push to cast everyone adrift from their moorings, to deny the existence of even biological reality, is an attempt to prepare us all for the forthcoming metaverse.

In this article, Dr Karl Neff, the head of National Gender Service in Ireland speculates on the link between autism and gender identity..."Could it be a biological link? Could it be that the results of autism and gender are biologically in the same part of the brain?"

Such a good (but very disturbing) documentary. I don't know someone can look at those scarred young people and think that this is a positive thing.

I love that quote about that "horoscope effect" - you read something online and you feel really connected to it so you immediately start searching for proof that validates that connection. So many are doing this. I kind of have personal experience of this, as a late-diagnosed autistic woman (I'm early 40s and got the diagnosis a few years ago). What's interesting is that I didn't have significant internet access until late teens; not unsupervised until I went to university. I had spent many years thinking "what is wrong with me?" but had no recourse to find out. Given my extreme tomboy nature, I absolutely would have been transed these days and I fear I might have swallowed it. At uni, I joined a then early online support group (it was purely email based) for self-harmers (which I didn't know anyone else did until I went to uni). It was overwhelmingly female, with a few males. We all started using the internet to find out what was "wrong" with us. Many had serious problems (e.g. eating disorders, bipolar, schizophrenia, and trauma from sexual abuse). But these were picked up by actual medical professionals, although there was of course some misdiagnosis. They were too real not to be. I never found out what was wrong with me, and as I exited the ravages of puberty, my problems got more manageable, and I concluded I was just a bullied nerd who was weird. When I read an article about late-diagnosed autistic women many many years later, I had that "horoscope effect" - that's me. And I didn't trust it. But it was compelling. So I went to a clinical psychiatrist and was actually surprised when he said "Well yes actually you are autistic [fairly mildly]." I fear at least two women on that group were the same (and another has just been diagnosed). Those two women later took their own lives because their problems were insurmountable, and, unlike me, had a history of sexual trauma, eating disorders and associated depression. They sure as hell weren't performing neurodivergence on tiktok. I understand where this performative stuff on tiktok is coming from, and those kids have problems, but they don't have the problems they think they do. It's like the internet is pouring gasoline on the flame of their discontent, which is being enabled by so many adult bad actors, like those ghoulish surgeons. Nobody had Tourette's when I was at school and uni, because no one had even heard of it, and, naturally, it's rare. Nobody was trans, because nobody had ever heard of that either. It feels impossible to describe to these young people that the world they were raised in has utterly warped them, and that, twenty years ago, they never would have even imagined these things. The number of "trans" kids in my lectures now frightens me. The numbers with support documents for all manner of mental health issues frightens me. We have not helped these young people at all.

The other sad (and interesting) thing is that at least two people from that online support group (now on Facebook) have subsequently decided they are trans (and loads have swallowed the gender ID nonsense). One woman went down the trans route a few years back. Changed the name, etc. I don't know much about it but I don't know why this was allowed. She had a history of sexual abuse, a history of problems including depression and suicide attempts, and I am convinced she was a closeted lesbian with some seriously internalised homophobia. At the time, not being familiar with the stuff, I was like, "well, ok, if you're happy." She wasn't happy. She was dead less than three years later, in line with those statistics they don't tell you, that post-transition suicide risk increases. Another woman, who supposedly was a lesbian, has been in a relationship with a trans-identified man for a while now. They've just launched crowdfunding for surgeries. Is she trans now? Is she straight? She also has a history of many problems. I'd love to believe she's living her best life, but I really don't think she is and I'm very worried she's (a) not in a healthy relationship and (b) is going to be doing irreversible damage she will also come to regret. I'm in very little contact with her though. Both these women are about 10 years younger than me, so had more internet earlier than I did. I feel like I dodged a technological bullet.

What do we do? We are creating Idols of the Mind. We think we are creatures of reason, and that we reason these things through, but instead we rationalise the irrational, driven by social impulses gone awry. Even centuries ago, Bacon wrote, "For the mind of man is far from the nature of a true and equal glass, wherein the beams of things should reflect according to their true incidence; nay, it is rather like an enchanted glass, full of supposition and imposture, if it be not delivered and reduced." These teens are bewitched with themselves in enchanted glasses, and everybody is dazzled by it all. What happens when the fairytale ends?
