Why are we encouraging girls to mutilate their bodies?

The surge in young girls seeking gender reassignment should alarm us all.

The Tavistock, the NHS clinic that specialises in treating children ‘who experience difficulties in the development of their gender identity’, has just released its annual batch of statistics. The figures reveal that the children being referred to the clinic are younger than ever, and that far more girls than boys are seeking treatment.

As The Times reports, over half of all the children seen by the Tavistock are now under the age of 14. The number of 13-year-olds referred in the past year rose by 30 per cent to 331, while the number of 11-year-olds is up by 28 per cent. The youngest patients were just three years old.

Three quarters of children who want help to change their gender are now girls – the highest proportion ever recorded. We urgently need to ask why girls in particular are so unhappy with the prospect of growing up to be women that they would prefer to change gender altogether.

The disparity between the proportion of boys and girls wanting to change gender exposes the myth put about by trans activists that we have an innate sense of gender identity in the brain. According to trans ideology, brains and bodies are aligned for most people – that is, their biological sex matches the gender identity in their brain – while trans individuals apparently experience a mismatch between the two. That means their bodies need to be changed and brought into line with their brains in order for their true gender to be realised. But if this really were the case, we would expect just as many males and females to experience this disjuncture between their brains and bodies. That so many more girls than boys are raising concerns about their gender identity suggests this is a social and cultural phenomenon, rather than a biological one.

The increasing number of girls looking to change gender also calls into question the view held by many radical feminists, that transgenderism is a form of ‘autogynephilia’. According to this theory, some men feel so sexually aroused by the thought of themselves as women that they transition in order to make this state permanent. This may well account for a small number of trans women who fetishise and ape stereotypical womanhood, complete with dresses, make-up and high-heeled shoes. In turn, some feminists accuse autogynephilic men of effectively grooming children on the internet to become trans. But even if these men are all-powerful and extremely persuasive, this clearly cannot account for such a sharp rise in teenage girls seeking gender reassignment.

The messages children receive about gender are shaped by our culture. Ironically, now that many children are taught that they can choose their own gender, the limits of acceptable behaviour within the genders seem more fixed than ever. Trans activists and campaigners would have us believe that the boy who wants to wear a dress must really be a girl, and that the girl who prefers getting into fights to experimenting with make-up must be a boy. Rather than society changing to accommodate a broader range of behaviour from boys and girls, children are told that they must change. This is a cruel lesson for adults to inflict on children.

Adolescence is a difficult time in which girls, in particular, can develop a complicated relationship with their bodies, sometimes leading to self-harm. One explanation for anorexia is that it is an attempt by adolescent girls to stop growing up and to keep their body childlike. Anorexia is taken very seriously by parents, teachers and health professionals who encourage girls to eat. But when teenage girls want to harm their bodies by chest-binding or taking puberty-blockers, they can find that these behaviours are not just validated but actively supported by schools and social workers. Charities and pressure groups like Mermaids or Stonewall need to be held to account for promoting the idea that changing gender is an answer to the problems some young people face.

Adolescents, influenced by their friends, experiment with different identities in a bid to work out who they are. For girls struggling with their sexuality, being a lesbian is rarely presented as a positive choice. Increasingly, homosexual women in the public eye describe themselves as ‘gay’ rather than ‘lesbian’. Whereas openly gay men front popular television shows, pop bands and become YouTube stars, lesbian women are hardly as visible or as aspirational. For girls today, it can seem easier to come out as transgender than to come out as a lesbian.

Feminists must also take some responsibility. Girls today grow up with feminists telling them, at every turn, that life as a woman is awful: they will be sexually harassed, paid less than men, face a lifetime of domestic drudgery, and still be judged and found wanting. This is hardly something for girls to look forward to. At the same time, feminism saves its biggest respect for those who have suffered most. Turning trans is a surefire way for girls to achieve the moral beatification doled out to victims. Sadly, this seems to be a very enticing prospect for many teenage girls.

For young people today, publicly struggling with your gender identity can mark you out as being at the cutting edge of progressive thought, and as more sensitive and more troubled than everyone else. We are at risk of making gender reassignment something fashionable. What’s truly appalling is that a significant number of adults are not just going along with this, but are actively encouraging teenage girls to mutilate their bodies. They should be condemned for child abuse.

“The disparity between the proportion of boys and girls wanting to change gender exposes the myth put about by trans activists that we have an innate sense of gender identity in the brain.

That so many more girls than boys are raising concerns about their gender identity suggests this is a social and cultural phenomenon, rather than a biological one.”

It is not a case of ‘either biological or social’ but ‘both…and’.

The existence of an innate sense of sexual identity (I change the term from ‘gender’ to ‘sexual’ deliberately) is difficult to verify, but the case of David Reimer is a very important witness. He was brought up as a girl from the earliest age, including the removal of genitalia, and given all the social conditioning that would be given to a girl. But he always knew that something was not right with this and eventually identified as male. But the question is this: if he had been told from the earliest age that he was a girl, and had no male genitalia to disprove this social conditioning, how did he have an awareness that this was wrong, and that in fact he was male, other than by having an innate sense of his maleness – that is, his sexual identity?

Social conditioning also plays a very important part in the affirmation of sexual identity, notably because that innate sense can vary in security. On this subject, the paragraph from which I have quoted contains a glaring non-sequitur: “That means their bodies need to be changed and brought into line with their brains in order for their true gender to be realised. But if this really were the case, we would expect just as many males [as] females to experience this disjuncture between their brains and bodies.” Why? Why should there be an equal number of males and females? Perhaps the levels of sexual identity insecurity vary between the sexes, with more girls than boys needing affirmation of their sexual identity? And I would agree that the way that feminists have denigrated the feminine makes the affirmation of a feminine sexual identity considerably more difficult.

My understanding is that there is one phenomenon – gender dysphoria – which has two aetiologies: a mismatch between innate sexual identity and biological sexuality (true transsexualism); and the failure to provide the affirmation of innate sexual identity leading to mental confusion (social contagion).

I recognise that this is an immensely complicated subject, but I regret that have neither the time nor space to write more.

Gender might be a social construct, but it has its roots in physical fact. Feet and inches are a social construct, but that does not make me 6’2″ no matter how much I might wish it to be, because the unit of measure is rooted in physical fact.
If you have external plumbing then you are male, a young male is a boy, a mature male is a man, boy and man are concepts of gender, but still based on the fact of having a penis. Likewise for female / girl / woman.
Society has a contract with the next generation who are going out looking for mates. It is unacceptable for someone with a penis to claim they are a woman when the person chatting them up (investing time energy and expenditure) is expecting a vagina when it gets to the bedroom. You used to be able to identify a Woman (with a vagina) by the way they look act and dress, but this method of indication is getting less and less reliable.
The eventual outcome of this insanity is that people will adopt some signal to indicate what they really are (physically) like a ring on a specific finger for example, much in the same way that homosexuals adopted signals in the past so they could identify each other.
After that, we will still have some mode of dress that indicates if we are male or female, pretty much where we started with trousers and skirts, but with different signals.
In the meantime, our society is nullifying everything female women have sacrificed, given up, and suffered for many years so they can claim the same (or very similar) rights as male men.

For people who endlessly talk about individual freedom and autonomy, Spiked really tie themselves in knots over the trans community, don’t they?

It is not mutilation: it is LIBERATION. It is a SUPREME expression of individualism and post-biological autonomy. It is a laugh of TRIUMPH in the face of intolerance, hate and socially constructed notions of “maleness” and “femaleness”.

Spiked should be supporting it to the hilt, not hatemongering and spreading lies and disinformation. Shame on you.

‘Liberation’… liberation from what exactly ?
If you think this is a ‘supreme’ form of ‘individualism’ then your idea of individuality is pretty shallow as there is only male and female .. vagina V penis you have one or the other no ifs no buts, so your idea of individualism only goes as far as half the population.
My idea of individuality is individuality of the mind, a far greater form of individuality doesn’t exist.

On the contrary, surely it is a confirmation of socially constructed ideas of male and female. If one wanted to defy these norms they could surely just be an effeminate man rather than a trans woman?

By claiming people need to change their gender to cure their problems you are reinforcing these gender stereotypes rather than challenging them. If ideas of male and female were socially constructed, why on earth would surgery be required to realign one to the other??

Surgery is sometimes required because, for some individuals, societal programming is so strong and so toxic that they need a physical affirmation of their life-choices. That is up to them: they are individuals with unique life-trajectories. Spiked supposedly celebrate the individual and their autonomy. Supposedly.

It seems to me huge cultural changes ( born out of ideologies ) are being forced on our society in both politically draconian and also very subtle ways. Some people who recognise what is happening get angry and fight, those in the middle tend to comply for an easy life and the weakest – the mentally unstable and vulnerable children, express their disturbance in the most painful, visceral way.
Ideologies are so dangerous. Where is the cool rational analysis and common sense necessary from Government ?

Dimitrios Otis

I agree with you completely. It is the subtle part–the moral control–that lets this slide onwards pervasively. Instead of pointing out it is “wrong”—we need to point out it is “right”, that is, that it is presented a Moral Good, aka it is religion.

^ This is a pretty extreme example of begging the question (also, “just as many males AND females” should be “just as many males AS females”).

It is worth considering the difference this issue has been presented compared to that of FGM. With the latter even piercings are seem as abuse whilst even children are being encouraged to think along with the trans agenda to the point where they want to change their bodies, who are the real abusers here? No one should be considering changing their sex until after puberty or in my opinion not at all but the state actively pushing this agenda in schools and I would like to know why

I recently read a Reddit thread by a young man, in his early 30s, who had been manipulated and pressured by his mother into identifying as trans. Now, a few years down the road, he realises that he is not only not trans, he’s not even gay. As a boy and a young man, he was simply more effeminate than was normal for a heterosexual male. Now, he wants a normal life with children and a wife. Unfortunately, he had his male genitals removed at the age of 18, so that door is closed to him. It was clear he was thinking of taking his own life. Of course, there is no way of verifying a Reddit thread. But it’s very similar to accounts we have that are verified. That we should enable this kind of outcome, on such flimsy evidence and with such little scrutiny and accountability, is horrifying.

The massive growth in the number of girls opting to transition is also extremely worrying. We know that teenage girls are a particularly vulnerable as a demographic to mass psychogenic illness (MPI) — previously known as mass hysteria. We know that teenage girls place a high value on relationships and peer acceptance. This seems to fit in with the pattern observed by Professor Lisa Littman, and others, that cases of teenage female-to-male gender dysphoria seem to cluster and show signs of being the result of psychological contagion, in a way that just wouldn’t be the case if the cause were inherent in the individuals involved. And yet we validate them in what is quite possibly a harmful delusion that would have passed without adults working to entrench it.

How will we hold our heads up in years to come when these girls, now women, ask us why, in some cases, we set them on a path that has rendered them infertile? The policies that local educational authorities and healthcare trusts use often only allow validation, never the questioning or critical examination, of the young person’s belief that they are transgender. Yet we know that over 90% of young people who have gender dysphoria will recover by themselves, given time. By validating these girls, without examining other possible causes of the symptoms they manifest, we may be preventing them from recovering, keeping them sick for years or even for life. This is a dereliction of the adult duty of care and to care.

And for what, so we don’t have to risk being on “the wrong side of history”? We need to re-examine the moral foundations and consistency of our values.

I mean “we” as a society that is allowing this to happen. It should never have got this far. The institutions which exist to protect us all, but particularly the vulnerable, should have seen instantly that there were obvious problems with evidence, safeguarding and duty of care. What is it about our society now, that has prevented these safeguards from operating? That is the question that we, collectively, must answer. That’s not imply that individuals who have spoken out against this share and individual portion of the collective guilt for this catastrophe.

These teenage girls are being encouraged to mutilate their bodies while others with genital piercings are viewed by law to have undergone FGM. This is the only type of ‘FGM’ being identified in the NHS whatever the hype says. What a strange world we live in. Who are the real abusers here? https://www.shiftingsands.org.uk/nhs-fgm-prevention-progra…/

Claire D

4th July 2019 at 7:48 am

The closest historical example of this behaviour I’ve found is the Skopits, a Russian heretical sect who, after breeding, cut off their own genitals and breasts in an orgiastic frenzy because they believed this was the only way to wipe out Original Sin. This began in the late 18th century and only diminished in the 20th after a determined crackdown by Russian authorities, probably a good idea.

Who would have thought that in a Progressive, Liberal, Feminist society like ours, that pursues Equality relentlessly, denigrates motherhood, officially bans traditional gender roles across media and in schools, allows people to choose their gender by law on a whim, encourages and supports a victim culture, has feminists lecture schoolboys on toxic masculinity and perpetuates ‘ The Patriarchy ‘ myth, who would have thought such a society would cause a mental health crisis amongst children so severe that sexual mutilation is one of the outcomes.

Claire D

4th July 2019 at 8:54 am

I meant to add, it’s hardly surprising, under these circumstances, that the state is taking an active part in the mutilation of these children.

James Hillier

4th July 2019 at 12:46 pm

Interesting one. The final outcome — the blurring of sex differences through the removal of genitals — resemble the Skopits. But there elements of the movement which also resemble other things. For instance, the injunction to “only validate” risks coaching the person in the symptoms of gender dysphoria, in the same way that people in the 90s and early 00s were coached into having “recovered” memories which were actually false.

The same technique seems, possibly unwittingly, to be a feature of many of the most obviously unfounded accusations of campus sexual assault thrown up by America’s Title IX system of campus star chambers.

For some reason, we seem to be going through a phase of manias, mass psychoses and cults built around anger, dominance and social control. I know it’s fashionable to blame social media. But I suspect it’s only part of the explanation.

Claire D

4th July 2019 at 1:53 pm

Good point, and I agree with you, social media is probably just the vehicle as it were.
Other times in History when manias and psychoses etc have appeared; the English Reformation, the burning of witches and the Flagellants. I have to admit I don’t know enough about these to be able to find parallels except perhaps a perceived need for ritual cleansing by burning or blood, like the Skopits. Very strange.

Claire D

4th July 2019 at 4:20 pm

Of course, what links all these manias is extreme ideological belief, either religious or political.

James Hillier

4th July 2019 at 4:46 pm

Yes, I agree. You’ve cut to the core of one of the key issues. The success with which different groups are managing to protect their ideologies from scrutiny and criticism is one of the unifying themes of many of the problems.

Disturbing that Joanna William’s ork so hard to shoehorn in an ill-conceived diatribe against feminists while ignoring utterly the negative effects of pornagraphy on male/female relationships as well as the wide spread negative effects on women/girls of rampant prostitution and sex trafficking. Both lie to men that they have a right to expect sex from women, and it had better be purified – rough, painful, replete with shaming if she should draw a boundary. From my perspective, these 2 influences are far greater reasons to opt out of womanhood than the feminist warning of indentured servitude in marriage. Which, sadly, also comes with all the inherent emotional, household, and childcare duties with the demand she be a porn performer. It’s surprising any women don’t leave Womanhood!

Women are not wilting wallflowers and damsels in distress, fluttering their fans and sniffing their smelling salts at the thought of coarse male sexuality. In fact, women are significantly more likely to want to view pornography which depicts rough sex, domination and scenes which are demeaning to women than men are.

There is also no evidence that pornography is a significant factor in the rise of teen gender dysphoria, as much as sex-negative and gender-critical feminists might wish there to be. But there is plenty of evidence that feminism, in all its many shifting guises, was instrumental in fostering this crisis that it is now working hard to disown.

Much of this harmful nonsense is based on Butlerian queer theory, an outgrowth and until recently a respected and accepted part of the feminist canon. Many gender-critical feminists were quite happy with the idea that “gender” (which they now quite rightly say does not exist) is a social construct.

Now, having realised the implications of this for women-only spaces and women-specific privileges, they have changed their tune and say that sex is real and has real impacts on behaviour. But these impacts apparently stop at the neck, for no logical reason, and so cannot be used to explain, for instance, differing outcomes or preferences in professional or economic activity. This is not only incoherent, but rankly opportunistic.

Feminism in its current form is part a rent-extracting populist movement, seeking to foster division in the pursuit of profit, and part genuine hate movement. It played a huge role in bringing us this mess and many others. It urgently needs to examine its moral and theoretical foundations, which are looking very shaky indeed. Sadly, it is now a protected and cosseted vested interest, with little incentive to good behaviour, good faith or self reflection.

Claire D

4th July 2019 at 4:38 pm

I do wonder if modern women’s preference for the kind of pornography you describe is’nt compensatory in some way, ie, their psyches are not comfortable with having so much autonomy and produce extreme fantasies about the reverse to compensate.

James Hillier

4th July 2019 at 4:59 pm

I don’t know. I suspect it’s an evolutionary thing. In the past, it would have paid for a woman to have a strong, dominant mate who could protect her and provide for her during periods of pregnancy and childcare. So it would make sense to have an evolved sexual attraction for those traits. In which case, you’d expect that evolved sexual attraction to make itself felt in the sexuality of the average woman, in the same way that the average man apparently prefers women who are young and show signs of fertility. Lots of “averages” in there, so I might as well be specific and say that no assumption about individuals is intended or warranted.

If your gender is something that your brain informs you of then why is it necessary to mutilate your body in order to confirm this information. Surely it is enough to know what your brain is telling you. If you trust your brain then you will be secure in the knowledge that you are the gender it tells you that you are.

Why would you put your body through such a traumatic experience when it is totally unnecessary for the confirmation of your gender? Changing your body does not make you any more female or male than you are as confirmed by your brain. You can’t be any more female or male than you already are.

It seems that those who have ‘gender reassignment surgery’ doubt what their brain is telling them. It seems they are trying to convince themselves that their brain is telling the them the truth. If they were truly secure in the belief that gender is what you think you are then that is all they need to know. Further action is superfluous.

What gender others think you are or what others think is appropriate behavior for either gender is their problem. The problem for transgender people is to show some integrity between their stated belief that gender is in your brain and their mutilation of their bodies.

I’m not one to give advice, but here’s some advice. Young women need to start listening to Joni Mitchell, Suzanne Vega and Tracy Chapman again. As Vega sang ‘the only soldier now is me I’m fighting things I cannot see’, it certainly feels that way Suze (can I call you Suze?). How about 70s Aussie feminist darling (darling of feminists, I wasn’t calling her darling) Helen Reddy, from Angie Baby ‘you live your life by the songs you hear on the rock n roll radio, and when a young girl hasn’t got any friends it’s a really nice place to go’ indeed it is; to paraphase Flaubert ‘Angie baby c’est moi’ (he said Mde Bovary c’est moi). Where will the madness end? I don’t think it will, I think it will just keep on going, commonsense will not break out, it is impervious to reason, ridicule, insult or pleas for mercy. Eventually of those who oppose these trends will be classified as ‘mentally ill’ not insane you understand nothing as potent as that mentally ill and in need of treatment. When I was young I was sectioned, I insisted that I was sane, that it was those around me who were crazy
coming up to four decades down the line I’m more convinced than ever that I was right. ‘The only soldier now is me I’m fighting things I cannot see’, I had my own version of that when I used to write songs, ‘ here in no man’s land, just riding in my van, like a scene from Taxi Driver, like a scene from the last survivor’, sweet dreams people.

If an anorexic teenager says “I’m fat” how should we react? Insist that the whole of society and medical professions “recognises” they are “fat”? Try to silence, ostracise or even criminalise anyone who calls her “thin”?

With any rare condition people should always be aware of the false positive paradox. This says that even if the diagnosis is (optimistically) 99% reliable, then you would still have many more false positives than true positive if the condition is rare. Remember that when a blind test was done testing the ability psychiatrists to diagnose insanity they proved to be hopelessly unreliable.

“As The Times reports, over half of all the children seen by the Tavistock are now under the age of 14. The number of 13-year-olds referred in the past year rose by 30 per cent to 331, while the number of 11-year-olds is up by 28 per cent. The youngest patients were just three years old. ”

I’d like to ask Nye Bevan if this is how he saw the NHS ending up.

Also Ms Williams, from this article, are we to infer that girls wanting to mutilate themselves is worse than boys wanting to mutilate themselves. Or is the boy article coming tomorrow?

I get the feeling that girls seeking to be male isn’t quite what the ID left had in mind when they set this transgender thing into overdrive. But perhaps now this is happening, the whole idea of children deciding what sex they are will be deemed ‘problematic’ and canned.
