The medical community is far too unconditionally affirmative in its treatment of rapid onset gender dysphoria (ROGD), a Wall Street Journal op-ed argued Sunday, making ROGD an anomaly among social contagions.
Unlike traditional gender dysphoria, a “psychological affliction that begins in early childhood and is characterized by a severe and persistent feeling that one was born the wrong sex,” writes Abigail Shrier, ROGD is “a social contagion that comes on suddenly in adolescence, afflicting teens who’d never exhibited any confusion about their sex.”
Unlike other social contagions, such as cutting and bulimia, ROGD gets “full support from the medical community” instead of the treatment such contagions deserve, she contends.
Gender dysphoria has now become “a fashionable cause,” and clinics routinely give girls testosterone with few questions asked, and with little thought to the sometimes permanent damage that such treatment brings about.
“Planned Parenthood furnishes testosterone to young women on an ‘informed consent’ basis, without requiring any psychological evaluation,” Shrier notes. “Student health plans at 86 colleges—including those of nearly every Ivy League school—cover not only cross-sex hormones but surgery as well.”…
The unfortunates who undergo such surgeries will quickly discover the difference between a tactile sensory neuron (or sensory-inert scar tissue) and an erogenous sensory neuron. Medicine’s apparent ignorance of basic human neuro-anatomy is yet another demonstration that “medical science” is an oxymoron.
But of course this has nothing to do with freedom or self determination. The idea is to prevent a functioning penis from entering a functioning vagina at all costs. Ecstasy bad, love bad, babies bad, families bad, empathy bad, autonomous self-organized extended families and human communities bad, state-orchestrated and controlled social frankensteins good.
I would not seriously regret the total disappearance of the buffalo from our western plains, in its effect upon the Indians. I would regard it rather as a means of hastening their sense of dependence upon the products of the soil and their own labors.

Is there a difference between the war on native american culture and the war on the broader organic spontaneously self-organized human culture? The objective is obviously the same: incorporation into the emergent socio-economic organism of the totalitarian state. It’s liberal, you see.
I have a better idea: let the state go f*k itself. I’m sure it can achieve some kind of corporate ecstasy before it mercifully dies out from inbreeding. But then where will its professional social engineers and other programmed drones go? They’ll have to figure out what it means to be human. It will definitely be a learning curve..
