A twelve year old boy in Australia told his parents he was “transgendered” and wanted to be a girl. So, doing what enlightened progressive parents are supposed to do, they started him on hormone therapy to begin chemically mutilating his body into a crude facsimile of the opposite sex. What happened next was not supposed to happen.
An Australian schoolboy who decided to transition into a female has changed his mind two years later.
At just 12-years-old, Patrick Mitchell, begged with his mother to begin taking oestrogen hormones after doctors diagnosed him with gender dysphoria — a condition where a person experiences distress because there is a mismatch between their biological sex and gender identity.
After heeding advice from professionals who suggested that it was right choice, his mother was fully supportive and Mitchell began to transition.
He grew out his hair and started to take the hormones, which caused his body to grow breasts. But two years on, Mitchell had a change of heart.
In the beginning of 2017, teachers at school began to refer to him as a girl which triggered Mitchell to question if he had made the right decision.
“I began to realise I was actually comfortable in my body. Every day I just felt better,” he told Now To Love.
Maybe the caring adults in this kid’s life should have sought out mental health resources to help learn to love and accept his physical body. Gender dysphoria is, after all, a condition of the mind, not the body.
Especially among children, whom adults don’t trust to make any serious life choices unless there is a sexual proclivity attached to them. Adults don’t trust children to take an Ibuprofen tablet when they have a headache; but they are allowed unrestricted access to abortions and body altering hormones.
Transgenderism, uniquely among identity disorders, is treated by indulging the delusions of the person that their body is something other than it really is. We don’t treat people who feel they should be disabled by disabling them. We don’t treat anorexic people by helping them starve. We don’t treat people who think they’re Joan of Arc by burning them at the stake.
I think the reason… the reason no one will admit to… is because unlike those other disorders, transgenderism is considered sexy and kinky. I have no proof, it’s just a feeling. Progressives identify with transsexuals because it seems like a kinky fetish. They’re into that.
And there are real world consequences to treating transgender dysmorphia like a disorder of the body instead of the mind. Suicide rates among post-operative transgendered people attest to this. But the point is, progressive societies are less concerned with helping people with body identity disorders than they are about feeling good about their feelings… and getting turned on.
