  • The Placebo Is the Point. A new paper highlights the fundamental bias in the world of “gender-affirming” research.

    A paper published last month in the Archives of Sexual Behavior makes an important point about the environment in which “gender-affirming” drugs and surgeries are offered to minors. Positive outcomes from hormonal interventions, argues psychiatrist Alison Clayton, the article’s author, may be attributable to placebo effects generated by clinical encounters and the social context in which they take place, rather than to the underlying psychotropic effects of the drugs themselves. Clayton’s basic intuition makes sense. If you take a teenager in emotional distress and tell her that drug X will solve her problems, while treatment Y will make them worse,...
  • Author of op-ed supporting Vanderbilt transgender clinic fails to disclose her role as university spokeswoman Argues that 'part of being a teen' is being allowed to make bad decisions, even if that includes cutting off healthy body parts.

    A local Nashville paper recently ran an op-ed in support of Vanderbilt University Medical Center’s (VUMC) pediatric transgender clinic, which commits genital and chemical mutilations on kids. The op-ed said residents were “lucky” to have the facility in town – the exact kind of language you’d expect from a paid spokeswoman for the university. While the spokeswoman for Vanderbilt made it sound like the clinic provides altruistic, loving care, in reality it’s all about the money, as exposed by Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh. But the publication, the Nashville Scene, did not disclose that Betsy Phillips, the author, works in marketing...

    A “transgender health” clinic affiliated with the University of Wisconsin (UW) provides “gender affirming” puberty blockers and surgeries, and the program’s director has said she will operate on minors. On Friday, Libs of TikTok shared a series of posts with information about the Comprehensive Gender Services Program at UW Health. Dr. Katherine Gast is a plastic surgeon and director of the program. The clinic’s website has since been removed and all YouTube videos made private. “Now the standard of care is doing puberty blockers which are completely safe, completely reversible,” Gast said in an interview that has also been hidden...
  • Planned Parenthood Can’t Do Abortions in Some States. So Now It’s Grooming Kids, Selling Hormone Therapies

    Following the reversal of Roe v. Wade, states are passing stronger pro-life protections, and abortion businesses are shutting down. But it is worth noting that America’s largest abortion business, Planned Parenthood, is not going anywhere. Consider this: According to NPR, since the Dobbs v. Jackson decision in June, no Planned Parenthood locations have closed. Their evolving business still relates to sex, but not always in ways you might think. Planned Parenthood has found something besides abortion to sell. Few people realize that, nationally, “Planned Parenthood is the second largest provider of hormone therapy” for “transgender and gender non-conforming patients,” it...
  • Planned Parenthood Exploits Kids, Sells Them Sex-Change Hormones to Make Big Bucks

    Pro-life advocates long have fought against Planned Parenthood’s exploitation of unborn children for profit. Now, the billion-dollar abortion chain is being accused of exploiting children in another way: cross-sex hormones. The Christian Post reports a whistle-blower inside Planned Parenthood recently came forward after feeling troubled by the group’s growing practice of prescribing hormones to teenagers who say they are transgender. Speaking to author Abigail Shrier, the unnamed employee said the teens receive very little counseling even though many exhibit signs of mental health problems, including self-harm. Rather than provide adequate mental health care, she said Planned Parenthood “rubber stamps” the...
  • "When You Change Women’s Sex Hormones, You Change Women" — It Turns Out There's Evidence That Hormonal Birth Control Actually Affects Who You're Attracted To, And Now I'm Questioning Everything

    Dr. Hill told BuzzFeed that birth control pills can affect so much more than our ability to become pregnant: "The birth control pill changes women’s sex hormones, which means that its effects go far beyond contraception. There are hormone receptors on virtually all cells in the body – including all major structures in the brain. Because of this, hormonal birth control can have an impact on nearly every aspect of who a woman is." To date, research finds that hormonal birth control can influence all kinds of things, such as "a woman’s mate preferences" and even "her relationship satisfaction." She...

    This is the text from a screenshot posted to a popular forum today. Parasites feed on hormones. Their growth is hyper-accelerated by testosterone and estrogen treatments (see transgender people), which is why the infected demon doctors/media are pushing for LGBTQ sex changes. Those kills will be assimilated into the parasite hive mind without exception. The rest of us can't avoid exposure because T. Cruzi and Toxoplasma are just so prevalent in our eco system, which most mammal bird and shellfish populations showing 30-60% population prevalence. All species are basically the same thing, cross reactive with any other animal. Each of...

    Even if you think children should be able to pause puberty and take hormones, shouldn’t you at least want to make sure the drugs are safe?“Don’t do it,” yelled Dr. Anthony Fauci in August. “There is no evidence whatsoever that that works!” Fauci, of course, was referring to the use of ivermectin to treat Covid-19. For the moment, set aside that Fauci should have been fired years ago and has a long record of misleading and politicizing “science.” He and pretty much everyone else in America’s public health infrastructure pointed out that ivermectin had not been approved for treating Covid...

    When Jennifer Ching first developed symptoms of COVID-19 in early March, little did she know she would become one of many "long-haulers" -- patients who had lingering symptoms weeks after their initial infection. For Ching, the long-haul was a constant low-grade fever that ebbed and flowed, coupled with headaches, fatigue and exhaustion. Her symptoms persisted for months, subsiding and resurfacing from March all the way to June. As she tracked the cycle of her symptoms, Ching found one consistency. Every time her symptoms of COVID-19 infection diminished, there was one constant: she was menstruating. "There was something weirdly cyclical for...

    The Biden administration will not investigate the abortion giant’s transgender profiteering. State departments of health, medical boards, attorneys general, and legislatures must fill the void.As Democrats in the Senate prepare to advance the so-called Equality Act to enshrine transgenderism everywhere possible, whistleblowers have come forward to illustrate the horrifying realities of transgender “medicine.”Their stories also offer a peek into a dark network of institutions hoping to reap massive amounts of taxpayer and insurance company dollars sterilizing their victims, giving them heart attacks, and chopping off fully functioning body parts, all for financial and political gain. Many of the victims of...

The Verona, Wis. woman says it’s hard work but rewarding to the women who ride.But as “equity” politics are further infused into just about every aspect of life, including competitive sports, cyclists like Mix are forced to compete on an unequal course.

    For many women on birth control, it’s pretty obvious that it has effects beyond simply preventing pregnancy. After all, birth control side effects are common, and some are more obvious than others. On the less obvious front is the possible effect of birth control on mutual attraction. That’s right: hormonal birth control can actually change who you’re attracted to—and who’s attracted to you. Now, before we unpack that mind-blowing assertion, I’m going to tell you a joke. What did the boy monkey say to his three favorite girl monkeys? Nothing; because his three favorite girl monkeys were injected with Depo-Provera....

    More than 200 doctors have called for an urgent inquiry into the risky medical treatment of children who believed they were transgender. John Whitehall, a professor of paediatrics at Western Sydney University, is taking a stand against minors being prescribed puberty blocker hormones as a precursor to getting a sex change in adulthood. His petition to federal Health Minister Greg Hunt, calling for a parliamentary inquiry into childhood gender dysphoria, received 131 signatures on its first day earlier this week. That grew to 200 within three days, with doctors concerned about children as young as 10 being rendered infertile as...

    With increasing rates of infertility and higher average rates of maternal age, people are turning to assisted reproductive technologies (ART) like in vitro fertilization (IVF) more than ever. More than 8 million babies have been born since the first IVF pregnancy in 1978. Recognizing the emotional agony of dealing with trouble conceiving, it makes sense why IVF is becoming so widely used. IVF provides a glimmer of hope for couples who have faced numerous cycles of negative pregnancy tests. But recently, some light has been shed on less positive aspects of the ART industry, revealing inflated success rates, maternal and...

    This is Your Brain on Birth Control, a new book by Dr. Sara E. Hill takes a remarkably deep dive into the myriad ways that hormonal contraception alters women’s bodies, demonstrating that our sex hormones have an enormous impact on how our brains and bodies function. As we learn more about the consequences of altering women’s hormonal balance with contraception, we’ve come to find that those consequences can be very serious, indeed—in some cases, even fatal. Although the book is about the consequences of meddling with the hormones of women of reproductive age, it should also serve as a cautionary...

You are less likely to divorce) After more than a decade on the Pill, our family complete, my husband and I decided on a more permanent way to prevent pregnancy. He took the lead by having a vasectomy, and I ditched the Pill. But a couple of months later, I realised that I felt . . . different. I didn’t notice...

    Recent numbers released by the American Academy of Dermatology revealed a dramatic spike in the incidence of melanoma cases among young women. Melanoma is the most dangerous type of skin cancer, and for women aged 18-39, its rates have increased by 800% from 1970 to 2009. In Caucasian women under 44, the number of cases has increased by just over 6% annually. (1) Now, in addition to being the most dangerous, melanoma is one of the most common cancers in young adults (especially young women). More than 7,000 people in the United States are expected to die of melanoma in...

    There is no more unifying experience among women around the globe than menstruation. All women understand what it feels like to have their period—even if they don’t exactly understand what it is. And yet, the topic of menstruation continues to hold significant stigmas, and embarrassment or hesitation to discuss this vital function of the female body has created gaps in our knowledge of how the menstrual cycle affects a women’s overall health. Therefore, it was a welcome shock to discover that the May 2019 issue of Scientific American magazine is primarily dedicated to the science of women’s reproductive health—or rather,...
