NHS gender clinic doxxes a load of their clients cause some mongo doesn't know the difference between to: and bcc: lmao.
They'll be screaming at randos in the street and people in shops that "IT'S MAAAAA'AAAAAM!" before long anyway, they always prove they want notoriety, not privacy, or they wouldn't be such huge attention whores and using up valuable NHS resources for being "born in the wrong body". No one who isn't born with a severe disability should get to claim they're born in the wrong body. We are our bodies ffs.

Jena Faith’s experience in the Steuben County Jail was a living nightmare.

The military veteran spent four weeks in the jail awaiting trial last spring. She was initially housed in the jail’s women’s facility without incident, but things changed when officials suddenly transferred her to the men’s facility, despite the fact that she is a woman.

During the weeks that Jena spent as a woman in a men’s jail, she was routinely targeted with physical and verbal harassment from other incarcerated people and guards. On her first day in the men’s facility, a fellow incarcerated person started touching her body and blowing kisses at her, making her feel scared and uncomfortable. When Jena told him to stop, he said that he wanted to marry her, and he wrote her several letters claiming he was in love with her. Afraid, Jena showed the jail’s guards, but all they did was move her to another section of the men’s general population, where she was promptly targeted by another man.

She knew her new harasser to be violent, but even as he repeatedly hurled threatening transphobic slurs at her in the presence of guards, they did nothing beyond telling him to stop a single time. The guards also started calling her “mister” and “a man,” even though she explained to them that she was a transgender woman. Terrified, Jena spent the rest of her days in the men’s facility feeling sick and scared to leave her cell.

Jail officials also denied Jena her doctor-prescribed hormone therapy, even as they made sure to give her all of her other prescribed medications, which led to hot flashes, cold flashes, nausea, and stomach pain. Since she was released from jail, Jena continues to suffer through sleepless nights and night terrors because of what she went through.

On August 22, the New York Civil Liberties Union, along with the Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund and the law firm BakerHostetler, filed a lawsuit on behalf of Jena. It argues that what happened to her is a violation of numerous state laws designed to protect the rights, dignity, and humanity of trans people.

While Jena’s experience was harrowing, it’s not unique. Across the state, trans people are often held in jail and prison facilities that are not consistent with their gender, even though state law prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender identity and courts have held that it’s discriminatory to refuse to treat a person consistently with their gender identity. In part because they are housed incorrectly, trans people are exposed to overwhelming levels of abuse and harassment while behind bars, and they are far more likely than cisgender people to be targeted for the worst types of violence and mistreatment.

Part of the reason this problem is so widespread is that the state has not made it crystal clear to jail and prison officials that the laws protecting trans people apply when they are incarcerated.

But there are steps New York can take immediately to make sure other people don’t endure what Jena experienced.

To start with, the State Commission on Correction (the SCOC), under the direction of Governor Cuomo, should adopt minimum standards to ensure the safety and well-being of LGBT people in county facilities. This guidance is needed because some jails are clearly waiting for the state to act before they do anything to change how trans people are treated. A Rensselaer County official, for example, told the NYCLU they would not address the safety of trans prisoners unless the SCOC required it.

Gov. Cuomo has loudly proclaimed that he’s a defender of LGBTQ people, and he even instituted a travel boycott of North Carolina when lawmakers there passed legislation denying trans people access to facilities that correspond with their gender identity.

But on the issue of incarcerated trans people’s right here in New York to be free of the same type of discrimination that he objected to in North Carolina, Cuomo’s administration has been silent. The NYCLU sent a letter to the SCOC in February urging it to put out regulations to protect LGBT people. We received no response.

State lawmakers also have a role to play here. They can and should pass legislation that helps to clarify and protect the rights of LGBT people when they’re incarcerated.

We have a long way to go, but these actions would be a critical first step towards making New York a place where people like Jena Faith are not punished for who they are.

Meet Jena LeAnne Faith. Jena, with help from his friends at the ACLU, is suing New York State for housing him in the male jail while awaiting trial. Jena claims he was denied his tiddy skiddles and was harassed by other male inmates— which is indeed a thing and why some prisons have separate units for gay and transgender male prisoners.

However Jena was initially housed in the female facility before being transferred to the men’s side. The ACLU claims Jena was doing just dandy with the other ladies and his time there was “without incident”. Without incident you say? Wonder why they transferred this poor, put upon transwoman out of the lady clink in the first place.

So what exactly was Jena in jail for— Jaywalking? Expired tags? DUI?

1 Criminal Obstruction of Breathing or Blood Circulation

2 Criminal Possession of a Weapon, 4th Degree

3 Harassment, 2nd Degree- Physical Contact

4 Menacing, 2nd Degree (link)

No Jena was in jail for a violent physical assault and judging by his Facebook it was against his off-and-on girlfriend/fiancée Samantha*

I’m fairly certain Jena’s deadname is Christopher M. Hurlburt of Bath, NY. Chris is a disabled vet with multiple mental health issues including depression, anxiety, and PTSD (legit, I believe). However I can’t find either a Jena Faith nor a Christopher Hurlburt in the NY DOC inmate database— so if anyone else wants to take a crack, I’d appreciate it.

So once again we have a violent man with a history of mental illness placed in the women’s wing because he feels like a lady. Inspite of the charges against him, his size and intact (and apparently still virile) package, he gets placed with women. And the ACLU enables this shit by blithely overlooking for what exactly this man was in jail.

Here’s his Facebook page. He has a YouTube too but it’s boring.

*oh and Samantha is now a transman even though Jena still refers to her as “she”.

Guess you’ll have to change your orientation again Jena. Also Samantha, the transman, is pregnant and Jena is in rehab.

Imagine working in a bridal shop these days. It's no longer bridezillas and momzillas that ruin your day, you now have to help huge, unwashed, violent men get into the dresses one on one locked in a dressing room. It's enough to make shop girls claim PTSD and go on disability.

ETA: At some point they made a trans-specific cancer page with the same tranny pic in the header. The only Way back archive for the general cervical cancer page with the tranny is from Feb 2019. Only Way back archive of tranny-specific page is from June 2019, so they may have switched it up a few months ago.

Finally some common sense.
One fly in the ointment - instead of simply stating 'Because they're MEN' (which in any normal universe would be enough) they specifically finger puberty as a causal factor. This can only encourage confused kids (and their confused parents) to push for wider and earlier access to puberty blockers.

The pharma companies no doubt are already tooling up to supply.

Is it a fucking joke? What the fuck is a "neo-cervix"‽
Even if the genital butchers became so intricate in their arts that they were able to create a protuberance at the end of the tunnel, it would still not be a "cervix" and, because it is not lined with the right kind of epithelium, cannot develop the kind of cervical cancer women get.

I looked at the one study of "neo cervical" cancer and of course it's cancer of the glans penis that for some reason they used to put in the end of the stink ditch in early surgeries.

When feminism supports trans rights, everybody wins – just like in Iceland
In the UK, the movements are often considered in opposition. In reality they are not just compatible, but complementary

On 24 October 1975 90% of all women in Iceland went on strike. Twenty-five thousand women – more than 10% of the country’s population – made their way to the parliamentary square to rally for their rights. Since that day, Iceland has been at the forefront of women’s rights, and since 2009 it has been at the top of the World Economic Forum global gender gap index.

That doesn’t mean the fight is won though, and Icelandic women continue the battle for true equality – not just for women, but for the LGBT community too. Despite a reputation for being one of the most progressive nations towards LGBT people, Iceland has in fact not always gone as far as it could. A recent bill – a form of self-identification for trans people – has moved the country further along. The prime minister of Iceland, Katrín Jakobsdóttir, was the driving force. For her, it was a way to ensure that Iceland was again setting an example for the world. “Well, you could say that we have been running a little bit behind, but now with this legislation we’re actually again at the front. So it took some time I think for this small group of people to actually get heard.”

Much like the feminist movement, trans people have struggled to be heard. While in Britain so often trans rights are considered in opposition to women’s rights, in Iceland the two are seen not just as compatible, but complementary. These movements aren’t disconnected. On the contrary, the reason the wider LGBT movement in Iceland has been so successful is thanks to the feminist movement, which has inspired and fought alongside them. Even though the Women’s Strike in 1975 may have been about basic civil rights in Iceland, its effect still lives on and emboldens the human rights movement as a whole.

The photographer Henri Kisielewski travelled to Iceland to capture the moment when this momentous social change took place, and to offer an insight into the lives of those it would most affect. As the bill passed through parliament, he met and photographed various trans people, feminists and lawmakers – including Jakobsdóttir and the former president Vigdís Finnbogadóttir, the first democratically elected female president in history.

To the trans community the changes have been hugely significant. Trans people can now change their name and gender via a statutory declaration, and they also have increased access to necessary trans-related healthcare. As Sandra Rós – a trans woman – recalls, the system used to be far too complicated: “Before the new law, you had to be in the transition process and live under the ‘correct gender role’ for a year in order to begin taking hormones. Then you had to be in the transition process for a year and a half to be allowed to apply for a name and gender change.”

The idea of a “correct gender role” in the old law was highly controversial within both trans’ and women’s rights organisations. Legally encoding gender roles in a modern society seemed wildly out of touch with the direction of travel in society. Erasing that concept was one of the great achievements of the new law.

In Iceland the women’s rights movement as a whole has been wholly supportive of trans rights for decades. All major feminist and human rights organisations declared their support for the law, and hailed it as an important step in reaching true equality in Iceland. For them, it was obvious. And for trans people like me, it offered a sense of hope for the future – a future where we can all work together to make the lives of those most in danger more positive.

Þorbjörg Þorvaldsdóttir, the chair of Samtökin ’78 – the national LGBTI organisation of Iceland – reflected on just how important this legislation was from a feminist perspective. “This is obviously a great step forward for LGBTQ+ rights, but the new law is also an important feminist milestone. Transphobia – as well as prejudice against LGBTQ+ people in general – is deeply rooted in outdated gender norms and misogyny. The passing of this legislation sends an affirmative message to society that every individual should be able to define and live their gender as they please without prejudice. I believe that this will benefit everyone, cis people and trans people alike.”

This certainly rings true with the experiences of trans women, who face everyday misogyny and abuse, on top of relentless transphobia. Official numbers show that 26% of women in the UK experience domestic violence,with supporting numbers showing that trans women are at heightened risk. Recent reports in the UK show an 81% increase in recorded hate crime towards transgender people.

It’s obvious that this bitter culture war over trans rights in the UK hasn’t helped anyone – whether cis or trans – and it certainly doesn’t make anyone safer. But if you’re not trans, I don’t blame you for tuning out of the debate. I wish I could. With the climate crisis and Brexit looming, it’s just another thing that makes me feel anxious and unsafe.

But if the UK truly wants to create a safe and just society, it needs to move away from limiting the freedoms of minority groups based on false narrativesor for political gain. It needs to build a strong human rights movement that fights for the liberation of everyone, because none of us are free until we are all free. In the words of Finnbogadóttir: “If you think of it that way, it’s freedom. Everybody wants freedom.”

Some dumbass ally of Rhys McKinnon points me to this article. Summary -- Case 1: girl of 18, who has a history of being bullied and was not in her best mental health, announced her trooning out to parents. During a short stay in the psych ward she picked up all the tricks needed to blackmail her parents. Meanwhile the parents were subjected to what struck me as pressurized sales tactics. Case 2: Clinic dismissed the diagnosis of bipolar disorder of a 16-year-old, Tumblr-addicted girl and fast-track her on hormones. The professor who ran the clinic told the mother, "You should be proud of your child".

The Australian said:
Parents feel new gender was a foregone agenda
by BERNARD LANE

“I said, ‘I’m here to see my daughter, Claire’, and they said, ‘Oh, you mean Jason,’ ” recalls Karen, who took her teenage daughter to more than 70 mental health appointments over three years.
Admission to a hospital psychiatric ward late last year was not a one-off, but this time was different because Claire had gone transgender and christened herself Jason.

It made no sense to Karen or her husband James, but when they came back to visit their daughter after an all-night admission ordeal, the staff had not been idle.

“It was absolutely immediate. Her name written above her bed was Jason,” Karen says. “Every time we said Claire, we were corrected. We were told that if we didn’t use that preferred name, she would be killing herself.”

Media solidarity

Journalists have told many stories of brave transgender kids and teens, parents who embrace change, all the more proudly if after initial resistance, and clinicians who in difficult cases give puberty blocker drugs and cross-sex hormones, even organise surgery. It is pitched as a mental health emergency in which “affirmation” of a new gender ratchets down the risk of suicide.

Witnessing this wave of positive coverage is unsettling for parents whose story is seen as negative, and therefore goes untold. These parents, among them Karen and James, have begun to contact The Weekend Australian, wanting to talk about the other side of trans. How many others are out there?

Karen and James saw no cross-dressing when Claire was little, no other early clues of classic gender dysphoria in which the sense of self suffers because the body, imprinted with biological sex, feels alien. Karen remembers a girl who was “very kind, had a lot of empathy for other kids, very intelligent”.

But toxic bullying began when Claire was four and it went on for eight years. “She was called a slut, she was told to go and kill herself,” Karen says.

At the time, her parents did not grasp just how “catastrophic” it was. At age 15, the decline in Claire’s mental health became obvious. She outed herself as a lesbian, her mother simply saying “that’s fine”. But Claire was not. She developed a “big crush” on a girl at school, asked for a date and was rejected.

She and her family descended into a disorienting, sometimes terrifying mental health crisis, going from one practitioner to another, collecting a diagnosis of anxiety, then depression, possibly bipolar and one off-the-cuff guess at borderline personality disorder.

“She wouldn’t do anything she was told, she was cutting, binge-eating, she would steal things,” Karen says. She and James felt besieged and traumatised.

Then, just before her 18th birthday, Claire “announced she was really a boy and wanted to be called ‘him’. I had to start learning all this stuff, pronouns. I found a web history of indulging in trans websites and videos of girls injecting themselves with trans hormones and bragging how their voices are deepening.”

If anything, Jason’s behaviour got more out of control than Claire’s.

What about regret?

After a psychiatric emergency led to the locked hospital ward, the clinician who seemed in charge told Karen she wanted to introduce Claire to a transgender person on staff. “And James said, ‘Have you got someone who’s transitioned and regretted it? Can she meet that person too?’ ”

Come the weekend, the staff who had stressed the suicide risk if Claire were called the wrong name told her mother to take her out of the hospital on day release. “It was a disaster, she kept telling me she wanted to kill herself.”

The hospital stay was short and Claire came home the day after discharge with her head clean-shaven, marking the occasion with a social media post “Claire 2018, Britney 2007”, tagging the meme of a celebrity’s downward spiral.

Karen: “Every day I was given a lecture about how I was a white privileged bigot, transphobic, a boring heterosexual, on and on and on.”

Meanwhile, a hospital endocrinologist wanted to meet the family. Karen: “I know why you go to an endocrinologist — to get jolly hormones, and we said, no, no, no, we’re not doing that.”

Happy hormones

Claire kept asking until her parents relented and the family meeting went ahead. Karen detailed the mental health problems, which predated trans self-identification and, in her opinion, required investigation and therapy before any talk of risky hormone treatment.

She explained they were waiting on the opinion of a psychiatrist in private practice with a specialisation in gender.

“The endocrinologist looked at me and said, ‘Don’t you just want to see your child happy?’ I said, ‘I think there’s a lot more to parenting than just seeing your child happy.’ ”

Later, she and James found out Claire had begun testosterone two months beforehand. She was 18, although her first endocrinology appointment had been made, without her parents’ knowledge, at 17. Still, Claire agreed to keep the appointment with the gender specialist, who took a careful history.

“He diagnosed her with complex post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of her going through an enormous amount of bullying as a child,” says Karen.

“He said he most definitely would not have put her on male hormones at this point of time because clearly with PTSD you need therapy to sort through mental health issues.”

But as Karen and James discovered, there is little parents can do to separate a young woman from hormone treatment that is seen by authorities as her right and vital for mental health.

Gender identity might have changed but the abuse and conflict at home did not let up, until things became unbearable and Claire was set up in student housing nearby, the rent paid by Centrelink and her parents.

Karen: “She dropped out of school, she’s not working, she’s not going to uni, she just lies in bed all day. I don’t think her mental health has improved at all.”

The hospital insists staff did the right thing at all times with Claire’s best interests in mind. Karen says friends find the whole story difficult to credit. “They just can’t believe this is happening to children and adolescents, they just can’t. I feel like I’ve been screaming into the wind about this child abuse and nobody’s listening.”

Deaf to doubt

Alison casts her mind back to the defining moment: “I realised about 20 minutes in that I wasn’t going to be heard, it wasn’t going to be a thorough investigation. They were basically saying there and then, on the spot, they were going to move down the track of hormone treatment.” That meant testosterone for Alison’s daughter Zoe, 16 at the time, who identifies as male and these days no longer talks to her mother.

Zoe was two years old at the separation of her father and mother, who did their best to make shared parenting work. She was imaginative and sensitive from an early age. “She would immerse herself in an identity, very creative, happy and much loved.”

But there was bullying — one nasty incident in primary school and two in high school, the tormentor her best friend. Alison didn’t find out until later. At puberty, when Zoe was almost 14, she began to talk about “gender fluidity” and told her mother she believed she was bipolar. “She’d done an awful lot of research online and she self-diagnosed.

“She had a laptop for school and we discovered she had been heavily involved online with a platform called Tumblr and a group of transgender people from all around the world. Up until that point she had never ever shown any sign of being anything other than a girl, so it was completely out of the blue.”

On board

Zoe was anxious and depressed and the family entered the revolving door of mental health. The psychiatrist at a private clinic appeared to have no doubt Zoe was a boy trapped in a girl’s body and gave a provisional diagnosis of gender dysphoria. “In front of Zoe, the psychiatrist told me I had to ‘get on board’. I was completely bullied,” Allison says.

“I kept saying, I think you need to be exploring beyond what Zoe is saying. She had always been a brilliant actress, very creative — when she was in kinder she had the entire class believing she was a dog. I asked them, how do you know this gender dysphoria didn’t arise as a result of being anxious and depressed and not the other way around?

“She spent six weeks at the clinic. She came out convinced she was transgender.”

Alison put her faith in a referral to Australia’s biggest gender clinic for children and adolescents at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne. “We were desperate, we were trying to keep her alive. I honestly believed it would be a full investigative process at the children’s hospital.”

Meanwhile, Zoe became dogmatic — “If people weren’t going to accept her as a boy, then they had no part in her life.”

“She always looked fantastic in clothes but she started wearing clothes that completely disguised her form. She had very long hair, she cut that off. She got piercings in her nose, she started wearing a chest binder.”

Alison’s partner, Phillip, who helped raise Zoe, says: “She was slated to be 6 foot 2 or 3. Imagine you’re a teenage girl, imagine the changes in your body, then thinking you’re going to grow up taller than most men — it must have been an amazingly confused time for an adolescent.”

In for the journey

Zoe moved in with her father, who supported her transgender “journey”, and Alison saw less and less of her. She was almost 16 by the time they all turned up for the first consultation at RCH. What Alison didn’t know was that her daughter had been seeing an RCH psychiatrist in private practice and her report had already been presented to the clinic.

Zoe’s bipolar self-diagnosis was dismissed, her self-declaration as a boy embraced.

Alison: “When I tried to talk about the bullying incidents, it was just noted that there were three instances of bullying but there was no further exploration, nor had there been any attempt to get my side of the story for the report.

“The last thing the professor said to me — he stood up and said, ‘You should be proud of your child,’ and I’d had no more than half an hour with him and I’d had the opportunity to mutter five or six words.

“I was devastated, he knew nothing about me or the relationship I had with my child. It was never about, ‘I didn’t support my child’ — it was about getting her the right help. Why did the decision to put her on hormones have to be so fast — and why were long-term risks glossed over?

“She was young and vulnerable and needed support, and sometimes there needs to be a level of tough love involved. You tell them what they need to hear.

“It was as if she was running away from one set of problems without understanding she was in for a whole new set of problems. It’s very different making that decision at age 13-14 to making that decision at age 24-25 when you’ve had life experience.”

Alison doesn’t know if her daughter began to take, or still takes, male hormones. By now Zoe is an adult entitled to privacy. “It has torn apart what was once a very, very close and loving family, and I grieve daily.”

The 2018 RCH treatment guidelines say: “When a child’s medical, psychological and/or social circumstances are complicated by co-existing mental health difficulties, trauma, abuse, significantly impaired family functioning, or learning or behavioural difficulties, a more intensive approach with input from a mental health clinician will be required.”

The Weekend Australian asked RCH and transgender groups to pass on the reporter’s contact details to families happy to talk about their experience but RCH refused and nothing came of asking trans groups.

All names have been changed to protect people’s identities.
