Trans Activists Silence The Science So They Can Claim Itís On Their Side
The Federalist ^ | May 22, 2019 | Nathanael Blake

It's telling that, in order to claim that science is on their side, trans activists need to bully actual scientists into silence about what the data and human experience actually suggests.

According to legend, Galileo defiantly muttered “and yet it moves” after the Inquisition forced him to abjure his Copernican views. Although unverified, this story became a popular anecdote in the history of science, giving voice to the passionate love for inquiry and truth, even in the face of dogmatic threats of violence.

If the transgender movement has its way, we shall soon see many more like Galileo, forced by today’s ideologues and inquisitions to deny the plain truth of science and reason. For example, Ray Blanchard, a leading researcher on human sexuality, was recently suspended from Twitter for the clinically correct statement that “Transsexualism and milder forms of gender dysphoria are types of mental disorder.” After an outcry, his account was restored, but the message had already been sent—thoughtcrime will be punished, even, perhaps especially, if it is true.

This is an excellent article.

Most people are unaware of the extent to which activists bully actual scientists into silence in order to falsely claim that science is on their side.

At one time the church did suppress science because it also had political power that it did not want to lose. It could not be viewed as having been wrong, therefore no scientist could utter the blaspheme that the earth goes around the sun. It was a blaspheme to the political church, not God.

Now we have a new secular church of the human, also with political power, that wants to suppress science in the same way. Humans are causing climate change and the science is settled--or else. Humans also have sexual fluidity like worms or frogs. To suggest anything else is blaspheme. Unborn babies are not humans until exposed to outside air. Any science that gets in the way with these sacred precepts must be silenced.

It worked for second hand smoke, it can work for global warming and this.

This is only the continuation of a long campaign of bullying: homosexuality was a prominent item in the list of psychiatric diseases in the American Psychiatric Journal up to the 1970s. Homosexual activists threatened and bribed their way out of that list, even though even the most casual of examinations shows intrinsic disorder.

Now they've succeeded in lawyering their way to "marriage", demanded their way in adopting children and getting homosexuality taught in many schools -

So why should it be surprising that the next front will be "proving" "transgenders" are normal - and then forcing the rest of us to believe it?

They tried to get pedophilia taken off the psychiatric list while Obama was president - we just missed that one.

Science is now at the service of the PC crowd. The USA’s formerly best science mag, Scientific American, is now a whimpering relic of a once-great magazine. It is PC on every page, dripping with references to climate change and diversity.

True scientists have been silenced. There will be no funding for research on anything that challenges the LGBT crowd, the climate change crowd, the muzzy bunch, and the income redistribution gang.

This transfreak movement is the ultimate paper tiger. There is zero mass support for this, and the trannies number fewer than 1 in 1,000. There’s no muscle behind this idiocy, so why would anyone allow himself to be bullied by these nutcases?

You may be arrested, or murdered, by someone who won’t be prosecuted for it if on video tape, if caught talking the truth in public.

It is hate speech to use the word tranny, which perfectly fits what these freaks are. To walk into a PTO..whatever happened to PTA?..meeting and ask what the school is going to do about a mentally ill boy, pretending to be a girl, wanting full access to female showers, restrooms and teams? Will result in your being excluded from the next meeting, as well as your children being expelled, and you getting scissors thrown at you by all.

We are living in an insane society, and half of the adults are perpetual morons.

Gender dysphoria persists...so far.

In 1973 I had been a subscriber to Scientific American for several years, it was that year that I noticed the political correctness starting to creep into the magazine.
In 1975 I canceled my subscription, because even by then the rag had become unreadable.
The science was gone and the PSYCHOPATHS had taken over.

There is more truth in that statement than people realize. Homosexuality’s immorality has been diminished to a fashion trend. A robe or a cape that can be put on or taken off, depending on the event and venue. It can ONLY get worse.

I was at the ER last night. I was sitting in a room with a divider. The Dr was at the next bed behind the divider. I was blown away when the Dr appeared around the divider, it was a women (I think), that sounded like a man. Then She/he spoke to me, confirmed mans voice. We are still not 100% sure but....

Yes, an excellent article documenting the censorship surrounding the transgender movement which suppresses the available data that runs counter to their claims and points out the inherent weaknesses of the studies which support it.

The ever expanding alphabet behind L G and B is a conscious decision to keep their bloc together in a state of perceived struggle and oppression now that lesbians, gays, and bisexuals don’t have much left to gain by sticking with the left.

If you decide you want to call a bull a cow, you may do so—it’s a free country. Should you amass a frightening amount of political power, you may perhaps be able to pass a law whose words say that I must call a bull a cow. But when milking time comes, do not think that you will send me into the stall with a milking stool and a pail—I am not a fool. And I will not pretend to be a fool. Not even for my friends.
