This editor doesn’t intend to do a post on transgender issues every Saturday, but somehow always ends up doing one. For a “marginalized” community with no power, transgender activists have nonetheless compelled the dictionary to change its definition of “woman.”
Is there any place worse than Arkansas? A trans doctor testified before the state senate there and was appalled and utterly mortified over her treatment by the legislature. She told her story to The Independent:
I’m a trans doctor. What happened to me in front of the Arkansas senate was appalling https://t.co/eDAPIws6jj

Gwendolyn Herzig writes about her testimony against SB199, also known as Concerning Medical Malpractice and Gender Transition in Minors; and to Create the Protecting Minors from Medical Malpractice Act of 2023. So it concerns minors specifically.
This legislation, like so many other bills nationwide, targets and limits access to care for the transgender community and further stigmatizes an already marginalized population. The crusade to vilify those who just want to live life as their authentic self is baffling. Almost as much as the rationale, or lack thereof, behind the movement working to limit or halt care.
Senator McKee from Garland County was trying to corner me into answering his question and stated that there is a ”large body of medical evidence of harm that has come upon people who have gone through these processes”, which he neglected to cite and I obviously don’t agree with. I responded: “I am familiar with the large body of evidence showing that providing good affirming care saves lives.” We went back and forth three times with him getting increasingly agitated with me each time.
He then asked if I was a trans woman, to which I replied back that I am a trans female. Then the most insulting, dehumanizing, egregious question was asked of me: “Do you have a penis?”
Damn, we have women walking around the Capitol dressed as vaginas … why so sensitive?
Trans doctor. So, a person pretending to be a doctor?

You don’t want to live as your “authentic self,” you want to live as something you never were or will be, and force everyone else to conform to your view of yourself or be branded as a bigot.

By not answering the question the world knows the answer.

You were scared of the question because you knew if you answered it you would sound ridiculous.

There is Nothing appalling about asking a simple question that you invited by informing others of your pretense.

no, it was a pretty simple question. Putting yourself in that situation was your own doing.

Accurate would be a better word. If you still have your junk, you are not qualified to speak on the subject because you are not 100% invested in what you are saying.

That’s not a bad point. This person is advocating for “gender-affirming” surgeries on minors. Is she personally familiar with it?

If you’re offended by the question “Do you have a penis”, perhaps it is not the question itself, but the cognitive dissonance brought on by the answer that makes you uncomfortable. 🤔

“Gender affirming care” is mutilation. If adults want mutilation, that’s on them.
Mutilate a child, go to jail.

Even The Atlantic of all places recently ran a piece on how detransitioners ought to be taken more seriously, as not everyone gets past the honeymoon period of surgery and lives without regret.
