Dallas Denny is a man who identifies as a woman. He failed at censoring Sheila Jeffreys’ book, Gender Hurts, before publication. He now offers his own review of it.  You can also read a feminist critique of his “review” here.

  1. “This is not a review of Jeffreys’ book. I have not yet read it, and perhaps I never well. This is, as the title implies, a first look. It’s my reaction to a quick scan of the work.”

    A quick scan is sufficient…..

    “When I learned Jeffreys, whose dislike of transsexuals is manifest in her existing writing, was working on a book about trans issues which would be published by
    Routledge, I drafted a letter to the heads of both the publisher and its parent company, Taylor & Francis. Jamison Green agreed to co-sign.”

    His critique was based on a quick scan of the book, and now it needs to be banned.

    “What Jeffreys in arguing here is transsexual vaginas are not vaginas at all.”

    She is right.

    A vagina is an actual organ that is part of the female reproductive system. The vagina is connected to the rest of the reproductive system and it’s the birth canal. What does a “neovagina” do? It’s only purpose is for penetration. A “neovagina” is basically an artificially created cavity that is usually lined with the skin of the penis. It’s not connected to anything. See graphic,

    The differences between a vagina which is an actual organ and a “neovagina” are too numerous to mention. Similar to any artificially created wound or cavity, a “neovagina” will constrict and close if it isn’t dilated. Special dilating rods have to be inserted into the neovagina or it can close. Dilation is basically for life.

    Since Denny brought up “neovaginas”, transwomen (biological males who “identify as women”) still need their prostate checked. The prostate gland is still left intact even after sex reassignment surgery.

    “Jeffreys takes great issue with treatment which accommodates the gender identities of trans children; in fact, in an attempt to link pubertal delay and transition to forced sterilization, she calls it eugenics — but she neglects to note the social engineers are not medical professionals, not parents, but trans children themselves.”

    The sterilization of children is generally viewed as a human rights abuse. It’s amazing what people can do all in the name of “gender identity”.

    GnRH agonists are used to treat hormone sensitive advanced prostate cancer and severe endometriosis in women. They shut down the hormones that stimulate tumor growth and spur the growth of endometrial tissues. GnRH agonists are also used for precocious puberty (puberty when kids shouldn’t normally go through puberty). Precocious puberty is NOT the same thing as transgender. I don’t even know if GnRH agonists for a psychological diagnosis in children is even approved by the FDA for this purpose.

    Lupron is one of the GnRH agonists that has been given to “gender dysphoric” children. Google it because there have been horrible side effects from Lupron. Lupron is not the only GnRH agonist drug. Supprelin (histrelin acetate) is a GnRH agonist that is used for central precocious puberty. It’s an implant that is inserted in the arm. Completing puberty too early means the child may have fewer growth years. The kid may not reach his or her expected adult height.

    What they are doing is basically giving a drug used to treat central precocious puberty to “gender dysphoric” children.

    “The FDA reports that, as long ago as 1999, it had received adverse drug reports about Lupron® from 4,228 women and 2,943 men. These side effects included: tingling, itching, headache and migraine, dizziness, severe joint pain, difficulty breathing, chest pain, nausea, depression, emotional instability, dimness of vision, fainting, weakness, amnesia, hypertension, muscular pain, bone pain, nausea/vomiting, asthma, abdominal pain, insomnia, chronic enlargement of the thyroid, liver function abnormality, vision abnormality, and anxiety, and others.2 In 325 of these cases, the women required hospitalization; 25 women died.3 At the time, the FDA said that it did not have enough staff capacity to assess any causal effect in these cases.”

    The transgender community and the clinics who prescribe puberty suppressing drugs to children always say that they are reversible. This is only partially true and they know it. Depending on where you live, with parental approval, cross gender hormones can start at age 16. Some children go straight from puberty suppressing drugs to cross gender hormones.

    Treatment with puberty delaying drugs leads to sterilization if it is followed with the administration of cross sex hormones at 16 years, as the Brill and Pepper handbook on “transgender” children (2008), explains, “the choice to progress from GnRH inhibitors to estrogen without fully experiencing male puberty should be viewed as giving up one’s fertility, and the family and child should be counseled accordingly” (Brill & Pepper, 2008, p. 216). For girls, sterilization is the outcome too, because “eggs do not mature until the body goes through puberty” (Brill & Pepper, 2008, p. 216).

    Do parents have the right to compromise the future fertility of their children? This could be construed as a human rights violation.

    Deliberate delaying a normal part of human development, adolescence, because of what basically amounts to a questionable psychiatric diagnosis in healthy children assumes all the following:

    (a.) The diagnosis of “gender dysphoria” is correct to being with, and there isn’t something else going on in the child’s life.

    (b.) The child is completely free from any parental, peer, or cultural influences. How much is “gender dysphoria” in a 12 year old child, and how do we separate this from everything the parents read on transgender websites and blogs? How much is actual “gender dysphoria” or GID and how much is parental discomfort at having a child that doesn’t fit neatly into sex based gender roles?

    (c.) Children have the mental capacity to decide or choose for themselves.

    It’s a scientific fact that the pre-frontal cortex of the human brain which is sometimes called the judgment center of the brain isn’t fully developed until the early to mid-twenties.

    ”The prefrontal cortex, the part of the frontal lobes lying just behind the forehead, is often referred to as the “CEO of the brain.” This brain region is responsible for cognitive analysis and abstract thought, and the moderation of “correct” behavior in social situations. The prefrontal cortex takes in information from all of the senses and orchestrates thoughts and actions to achieve specific goals. This brain region gives an individual the capacity to exercise “good judgment” when presented with difficult life situations. Brain research indicating that brain development is not complete until near the age of 25, refers specifically to the development of the prefrontal cortex”

    These children might feel different, but this doesn’t mean that they have the mental capacity to make informed decisions. They aren’t even old enough to vote or buy alcohol, but they are supposedly old enough to voluntarily give up their fertility and possibly endanger their health. This is being done to them.

    Wait ten or fifteen years from now and watch the lawsuits pile up over the drugged, damaged, and infertile adults. This is an Orwellian nightmare in the making.
