Abusers rarely manage to operate without facilitators. When a young woman or man is pimped into prostitution, for example, there all too often has been a long grooming process ( sometimes since infancy ) to prepare the prostituted woman, alter their sense of reality and delete their whole sense of self. This of course makes it easier to manipulate them and ultimately encourages them to do things that they would never do under normal circumstances.
With the recent and troubling phenomenon of teens identifying as trans, it’s easy to spot the very old and established tactics being utilized. Many of the teens are diligently worked on, meticulously, relentlessly, slowly, particularly in online forums, encouraged to share pictures, exchange “sexts”, and are even coached in how to abandon parents, who are often completely unaware of what is happening.
These predators are hiding behind seemingly well-meaning “advocates for the rights of trans kids” and come in many forms. Two examples of which are older men who infiltrate trans youth support groups- most of whom claim to be lesbians or “non-binary” and another are online influencers who produce blood-curdling content aimed at their child audience about deeply personal issues of sex, genital surgery, hormones and even advice on how to abandon your family structure and distance yourself from friends with concerns or criticisms.
Influencers who discuss transgender topics on youtube and produce content are privy to their data and analytics- they know who is watching their videos and they alter their content accordingly. No influencer can ever say “I just put my content up for older people, I don’t know who really watches my content”- they know everything about the breakdown of their viewers- and they know they skew young, which topics capture watch time from certain demographics ( and ad revenue ), and what thumbnails get them the audience they are really looking for.
“My daughter watched endless hours of trans YouTubers a day. It took me a while to even understand what she was watching- elective surgeries, pictures showing their “progress” from attractive females to bearded, balding short-statured young "transguys". When she told me that she was transgender she repeated points that had been repeated by influencers."
This is so commonplace, it's almost surprising to hear of a trans-identified teen who wasn't deeply influenced by youtube/tik tok "stars" and the typical "transgender teen talking points" are;
I was always like this, I have just been hiding it.
Transition is the only way to solve any of my mental health problems.
There is a body of science that supports this, and it’s abusive to question what I’m saying.
There is only one way to solve gender dysphoria- puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones and if you don't let me do that- you want my suicide.
Youtube, however, is just a small part of the issue. Once the child has become exposed to these ideas, they seek others ( mostly online ) who are part of their club. These online clubs are found on discord, Facebook, Twitter, and Reddit and they often end up in instant messaging one on one with other members. Many of whom are older predators.
“My 14-year-old son came out as a transwoman and then as a lesbian. After he made this shocking revelation I broke into his computer, his discord server and discovered he had been instant messaging with a 24 year old “transwoman”. I felt completely sick. My son is very impressionable, has no real friends, and is surrounded by this incredibly toxic atmosphere, but it doesn’t end there…”
What is even more concerning, it that adults in his life- teachers, councilors, and confused parents at his school are affirming this, and are having secret conversations and reminding him to "hang in there", and that "he will be 18 soon" or even worse "You do have rights, you know."
As if sharing pictures, personal stories about genitals, and having inappropriate sexual conversations with children isn't horrifying enough- many of them encourage these young "trans teens" to abandon their "dangerous abusive and transphobic parents"- something deeply intoxicating to teenagers who cannot find their footing in the world.
We must push back on this lunacy. We must call out every person who is grooming our youth and impressionable, often mentally ill youth into falling for these false prophets. Behind every barefaced, child manipulating predator is a system that props them up and shields them- many of whom are benefiting financially from the system of gender affirmation.
My project to uncover every pediatric gender clinic Worldwide is one that will uncover truths harder to bear, but we cannot allow ourselves to hide away and not face what is happening. I believe that with data, facts, and real-life testimony we can shine a light on this atrocity.
Every person who is complicit in the harm of vulnerable girls and boys will never be able to crawl away and say that they did not take part in this. We may not be able to put families or bodies back together, but we can make the commitment today, to ourselves and to each other to record every single benefactor and all who participated.
