We are sacrificing our children on the altar of a brutal, far-Left ideology

We are sacrificing our children on the altar of a brutal, far-Left ideology. By Jordan Peterson.

I saw a video the other day featuring an American surgeon bragging that he had performed more than 3,000 double mastectomies on young women who had paid for gender reassignment, individuals confused — one might say encouraged — by those who profit from it into believing that their adolescent emotional trials can be ‘cured’, and happiness reign forever, if they subject themselves to this brutal practice.

And it is brutal — a process that often includes not only the aforementioned mastectomies but other appalling surgical processes: orchiectomy (that’s castration, in blunter language), the removal of the uterus, the demolition of the musculature of the forearm to make what is not a penis but must be referred to as such — all of that.

For someone purporting to be a physician to perform this on children, to me at least, seems like something worthy of a prison sentence.

Whatever happened to the doctrine expressed by the ancient language as primum non nocere — first, do no harm?

The Hippocratic Oath has been replaced by a delusion: a belief that can be summarised as ‘by blocking the puberty of children, and then surgically altering them, we are only restoring what is theirs by right. A child’s feelings are the final arbiters of their reproductive destiny, and any attempt to contest their gender identity risks increasing their proclivity for suicide’.

Lies. Lies. Lies. Then butchery. …

I’m increasingly ashamed to be a clinical psychologist given the utter cowardice, spinelessness and apathy that characterises many colleagues and even more so my professional associations. At least in 20 years when we all come to regret this terrible social experiment I will be able to say “I said no when they all came to insist that we participate in the sacrifice of our children.”

I cannot consent to what we are doing. I cannot abide by what have become the doctrines of my discipline. I believe that the acts of the medical ‘professional’ rushing to disfigure, sterilise, and harm young people with what are clearly ill-advised, dangerous, experimental procedures cross the line from ‘do no harm’ to outright harm. …

We must address the threat posed to the integrity of the entire education system as indoctrination into the same philosophy that spawned this surgical enterprise and the APA ‘guidelines’ grows. It threatens general public trust that our peace and prosperity depends upon.

And, by the way: it will definitely be the case that a disproportionate number of children “freed” from their gender confusion would have grown up to be physically intact and fully functional gay adults.

We have crossed the line from ideological possession to active malevolence … Heaven help us. Truly.

Funny how there is the usual combination of virtue signalers egged on by those making money from it, as is so often the case on the left now. It’s almost as if some entrepreneurs succeed by persuading virtue signalers to adopt their cause, a cause that just happens to enrich the entrepreneurs. Too bad about all the collateral damage.
