Dangerous Thinking Stamp by Carthoris

Science studies on LGBT issuesBeing gay is not a choice:
Gay epigenetics:
Gay gene theory and how it supposedly spreads in men:
'Gender criticism' is a cultThe topic in question are "gender critical" radical feminists, also known as trans exclusionary radical feminists, also known as terfs. Basically, these are a brand of radfems that believe trans women are men who want to sneak in women only spaces and rape women, and trans men are women who were persuaded by the society that they can't be masculine as women.
Terfs speak for themselves:
Their violence
The whole matter of terf logic is based on incorrect facts. Let's go though it.
1) "Gender is a social construct."
According to the newest data, it isn't. I'm not going to bring on all the links I already posted here , I have more of them than there are neogenders, I'll post only one that I found after I released the stamp
These are the infographics from the article:
We don't need 40 pronouns, and here's what I offerSome of you might have heard about my idea - se/sim/ser/simself, pronouns for everyone, instead of classic he/she, singular they, or neo-pronouns like bun or fae.
An exemplary phrase with them: "Chris is staying with ser cousin. I don't envy sim - this cousin is a bore, though se considers simself a very sociable person. But they are in London, so there are a lot of places to go."
Benefits of accepting these pronouns:
- Significant reduction of sexism. In many non-personal situations, such as reading a magazine article about someone, the gender of the person won't always be obvious, and also people will be taught from the young age that the differences between them aren't relevant anyway.
- End of all misgendering. New pronouns don't refer to a specific gender, so it will be possible to use them for trans people both before and after coming out, which will make the
A bit on Communism and CapitalismA while ago I made a poster explaining that communism relates to capitalism the same way capitalism relates to feudalism.

But there are still some misunderstandings in this subject.
If you want to know what is the true relation of communism to capitalism, look up how feudalism developed into capitalism.

There are several misconceptions about communism and communists:
1) "All communists love USSR and North Korea, because these are their states"
First, these countries never were communistic, the principle of redistribution of wealth was abused there (the government lives a lot better than ordinary people), and equality is totally forgotten (again, the gap between the elite and random citizens is terrifying).
Second, even if they were communistic, then so? There are plenty of fucked up capitalistic regimes, just because you're a capitalist it does not mean that you have to support it all.
2) "All attempts to bring commu
So, I checked out Blaire White.I admit I started with Google search “Blaire White opinions summary”, because I don’t like YouTube, I am Russian and my English listening skills still suck. But in the end I still watched her videos, and read her twitter, and watched videos about her videos, and read what other people said about her. 
So, this is what I come up with.
- against Islam;
- against BLM;
- against non dysphoric “trans” people 
- and... that’s all.
While when it comes to cons, there is actually a lot (but let’s move aside things like her being a christian (or not being a christian, but a sympathizer, as one person pointed out or supporting Trump, this is irrelevant).
Let’s start with her apparently erasing kids’ sexuality

Transgenderism - a (hopefully) full reviewTrans people's mental state and the nature of gender identity
In the past many behaviorist psychologists and psychiatrists have inherently blamed transsexuals for causing their own "sexually deviant mental illness", giving those psychiatrists a claim to responsibility for "treatment and cure of transsexual people" and giving society a rationale for discrimination, marginalization and ghettoization of transsexual people. However, as we've seen, transsexualism is most likely a neurological condition of as yet unknown origin and not a "mental illness".
The shift underscores that being transgender is not a disorder in itself: Treatment only is considered for transgender people who experience gender dysphoria — a feeling of intense distress that one's body is not consistent with the gender he or she feels they are, explains Walter Bockting, PhD, a clinical psychologist and co-direc
HRT and SRS resultsTrans women
Hormone therapy for transgender women is intended to feminize patients by changing fat distribution, inducing breast formation, and reducing male pattern hair growth (11). Estrogens are the mainstay therapy for trans female patients. Through a negative feedback loop, exogenous therapy suppresses gonadotropin secretion from the pituitary gland, leading to a reduction in androgen production (12). Estrogen alone is often not enough to achieve desirable androgen suppression, and adjunctive anti-androgenic therapy is also usually necessary.

Breast development – This will vary greatly, as it does with
Female and male brain differencesIn cis people
Sex is determined by two chromosomes: men have one X chromosome and one Y chromosome, while women have two X chromosomes. The Y chromosome contains the SRY gene, which triggers a flood of androgens (the group of hormones that includes testosterone) sometime between six and twelve weeks of gestation, guiding the development of the penis and testes. But this fetal testosterone bath also makes its mark on the brain’s architecture, resulting in sexually dimorphic brain circuits.
Predictably, these differences can be seen in areas like the hypothalamus, implicated in sexual and reproductive behaviors. But researchers have also noted differences in circuits linked to memory, emotion, and stress. Women show slightly larger volume in regions like the frontal and limbic cortexes while men have more bulk in the amygdala and parietal lobe.[
Sorta research on pedophiliaWhat it is and what it isn't
Paedophiles (as defined by the fifth Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) are individuals who are preferentially or solely sexually attracted to prepubescent children, generally 13 years or less.
Pedophiles can be classified in several ways. Pedophilia can be characterized as either exclusive or non-exclusive. Exclusive pedophiles are attracted only to children. They show no interest in sexual partners who are not prepubescent children. This desire prolongs even when they are not in the presence of children. Non-exclusive pedophiles are attracted to both adults and children.

How old can my sexual partner be
New scientific definition of sexual orientationIn a nutshell, approximately like this:
The most salient dimension of men’s sexual orientation is gender: attraction to males versus females. A second dimension is sexual maturity: attraction to children versus adults. A less appreciated dimension is location: attraction to other individuals versus the sexual fantasy of being one of those individuals. 
Scientists have reasons to suppose pedophilia is an age based sexuality
DSM-5 did not err in referring to Pedophilia as a sexual orientation. In diagnosing any psychiatric disorder (including a Pedophilic Disorder), ordinarily the intent is to guide patient care, management, and research. In discussing the diagnostic features of individuals who are sexually attracted to prepubescent children, DSM-5 notes that some could be said to have a pedophilic sexual orientation. The term sexual orientation ord
More info on puberty blockersYou know my research (in the description here  ), another guy did something similar, and I'm publishing his findings here.
Myths and false concerns about puberty blockers
Gender dysphoria is the intense, painful feeling that the physical sex of one’s body is ‘wrong’, resulting in the strong desire to become the opposite sex. A transgender person is someone who suffers from gender dysphoria, often from a very young age.
Puberty blockers, or hormone blockers, are used to suppress puberty in gender dysphoric children at the onset of puberty. They temporarily prevent the development of (secondary) sex characteristics, many of which are irreversible. This buys them extra time and allows them to make a decision about their body at an age where they’re better able to handle the responsibility.
Trans people's mental state reviewThe nature of transgenderism is not a delusion
Even before transgender politics began to push its interests, psychologists began noticing something. In particular, a Dr. Harry Benjamin (1885-1986) noted that the people who came to him with transgender issues did not act delusional. The people who came to him for help acted like people in distress over a difficult reality they had to deal with. They were sober about reality and wanted to deal as best they could in practical terms with the issue before them. The issue was their gender identity and apparent biological sex did not match. It wasn’t as if they had phantasms of being another gender, or that they had a second personality that happened to be of the other gender. It was straightforward: they had an identity that didn’t match what society expected of them, and this caused them unbelievable levels of stress.
For the most part, transge
The nonbinary gender caseSome people have a gender which is neither male nor female and may identify as both male and female at one time, as different genders at different times, as no gender at all, or dispute the very idea of only two genders. The umbrella terms for such genders are ‘genderqueer’ or ‘non-binary’ genders. Such gender identities outside of the binary of female and male are increasingly being recognized in legal, medical and psychological systems and diagnostic classifications in line with the emerging presence and advocacy of these groups of people. Population-based studies show a small percentage – but a sizable proportion in terms of raw numbers – of people who identify as non-binary. While such genders have been extant historically and globally, they remain marginalized, and as such – while not being disorders or pathological in themselves – people with such genders remain at risk of victimization and of minority or marginalization stress a

Comrade M.
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
Greetings, passer-by.

You may call me Comrade M or Akhnaton the Second, I am a Trotskyist, Transhumanist, Globalist, and Darwinist. Though my views changed as the time passed, there is one thing I keep as a prime directive: the law of a scientific fact. This is why I want to free humanity from all superstitions that were standing in the way of progress for so long, e.g. races, nationalities, genders as a social construct. I can’t stand all traditional cultures, because they are lies that feed ignorance and xenophobia. I have no respect for Americans and Europeans who claim cultural diversity to be a good thing (it must be very pleasant to have good food, medicine, mass media, clubs, and higher education as a part of your cultural tradition, but the less luckier people aren’t here for your entertainment). But I will talk to you seriously if you live in Africa or some isles and protect your culture, and the fact that I will consider you either a politician, who is working on image of the country, or a naive brainwashed kid wouldn’t make me think badly of you. I believe in a future humanity that will speak modified English and use new genderless pronouns: se/sim/ser/simself.

My less important conclusions:
1. On environment. Global warming is real, yet however the Greenhouse effect isn't. It was proven when a scientist built a small box of quartz, which lets most types of rays through, and it still grew hot on the inside. This means we should leave carbon dioxide be and look for another reason. I am also against putting so much effort into saving endangered animals. Species die all the time, why the fuss? The only thing we should worry about is our own survival.
2. On equality. As an Internationalist and Egalitarian, I support equal opportunities to live the life in a preferred way. I strongly disapprove of racists, regardless of colour, and sexists, regardless of identity. I support #freethenipple, abortion, sterilization on demand, same sex marriage, and official acknowledgement of the third gender (later we won't need gender based social differences at all, but for now we must go this way).
3. On education. I support making higher education a must for everybody. There are a lot of important things people remain oblivious to, for example, the fact that GM food is not harmful. It will also benefit to the process of taking down traditional values.
4. On religion. I am an Atheist because it is logical, and I actively oppose religion because it brings a lot of harm to humanity (dividing people into artificial groups, provoking wars, hurting children mentally and physically).

I am a student from a small Russian town. My ancestors originate from different places, and I am a mixed breed of Russian, Ukrainian, Jewish, Gipsy, and Greek roots. In today's political situation I call myself Ukrainian as a way to oppose Russian government, because I support independent Ukraine. On my father’s side I am a descendant of Cossacks (some sort of Ukrainian Vikings), and on my mother’s side I come from a line of a known Russian revolutionary. I am a member of the LGBT community, trans and bi. In my IQ tests I score 140-150, and it makes me smarter than 99% of humanity. My Myers-Briggs results vary from ESTJ to INTJ with a slight preference to the latter.

I read a lot and prefer Sci-Fi and non-fiction. I enjoy watching English movies in original and listening to rock and metal. While thinking I unconsciously hum “Uprising” by Sabaton. “Warsaw, city at war…” I can’t get it out of my head even now. I don’t play computer games, I tried “Siberia” once, and it was boring. I spend a lot of my free time taking photos of cats, you can see the results in my gallery.

My account started as a place for photography and fan art, but now I also make a lot of stamps, and I welcome the debate on each of them. I never block people (EDITED: an exception is done for one person who kept insulting everybody on my page. I wouldn't have done it if he hadn't kept adding me to their watchlist after I removed him several times), disable or hide comments that are against me only, you are free to say anything you want, but I'd prefer you to be polite to other users who came to comment on my art, and if you aren't, your comment can be hidden. I can make fun of you in a mild manner if you said something that prevents me from taking your seriously. And I have no patience for Stalinists.

So, my attention was brought to this article:…

Rapid onset of gender dysphoria that occurs in the context of peer group and online influences may represent an entity that is distinct from the gender dysphoria observed in individuals who have previously been described as transgender. The worsening of mental well-being and parent-child relationships, peer group dynamics, and behaviors that isolate teens from their parents, families, non-transgender friends and mainstream sources of information are particularly concerning. More research is needed to better understand this phenomenon, its implications and scope.

The person who used it originally, tried to prove with it that transgenderism is just a fad. Well, first of all, nowhere in the article it is spoken about it, to the contrary, the author seems to try to differentiate "real" trans people from "fake" ones. 
But let's look deeper. First of all, just a brief reminder: actual transgenderism is backed up scientifically.

During the intrauterine period a testosterone surge masculinizes the fetal brain, whereas the absence of such a surge results in a feminine brain. As sexual differentiation of the brain takes place at a much later stage in development than sexual differentiation of the genitals, these two processes can be influenced independently of each other. Sex differences in cognition, gender identity (an individual’s perception of their own sexual identity), sexual orientation (heterosexuality, homosexuality or bisexuality), and the risks of developing neuropsychiatric disorders are programmed into our brain during early development. There is no evidence that one’s postnatal social environment plays a crucial role in gender identity or sexual orientation.


Many trans people realize their gender as children, and it was proven that parents accommodating them were of much help.

Socially transitioned transgender children who are supported in their gender identity have developmentally normative levels of depression and only minimal elevations in anxiety, suggesting that psychopathology is not inevitable within this group. Especially striking is the comparison with reports of children with GID; socially transitioned transgender children have notably lower rates of internalizing psychopathology than previously reported among children with GID living as their natal sex.


Trans PULSE data have considerable implications for parents/caregivers and for those working with trans youth in schools and services. First and foremost, our findings show clear associations between the support that trans youth experience from their parents and numerous health outcomes. The most significant differences show that trans youth who have strong parental support for their gender identity and expression report higher life satisfaction, higher self-esteem, better mental health including less depression and fewer suicide attempts, and adequate housing compared to those without strong parental support. These findings draw a direct relationship between strong parental support and the reduction of significant risk factors for trans youth.


There is also a problem of children who later "grow out" of their gender dysphoria.

Only 2.5% to 20% of all cases of GID in childhood and adolescence are the initial manifestation of irreversible transsexualism.


There's anecdotal evidence to back up the idea that parents being unsupportive can push even cisgender kids further.

the father of a teenage girl who vehemently identified as a boy but ultimately desisted (as approximately 80% of children with GID eventually do) sounds ragged with anger as he talks about battling the girl’s wish to have short hair and dress in boyish clothes. Watching the programme, one wonders whether the care the girl received at CAMH wasn’t as much about adjusting her family’s ideas about how to be female as it was about treating her dysphoria.


As well as solid proof that unsupportive parenting encourages deviant behavior in general.

A parent is a model towards their children. Research on modeling has shown that when parents are held in high esteem and are the main sources for reinforcement, they child is more likely to model them (Simons, Whitbeck, Conger, and Conger 1991). If a parent acts in a negative way, the child is more likely to follow their parent’s negative attitude. They are also more likely to generalize this attitude to the rest of society. Thus, parents have much influence over their child’s behavior. From birth, a parent will mold and shape behaviors suitable to the norms of society through childrearing. However, there are certain parenting techniques that have a greater impact on a child’s behaviors. The largest is parental support (Barnes et al 2006). Parental support is behaviors toward the child, such as praising, encouraging, and giving affection. They show the child that he or she is valued and loved. In multiple studies, it has been found that support from parents bonds the adolescent to institutions and builds their selfcontrol (Barnes et al 2006). This building of self-control will hinder deviant behaviors from forming. 


Now, let's return to the article.

Parents online are observed reporting their children experiencing a rapid onset of gender dysphoria appearing for the first time during or after puberty. They describe this development occurring in the context of being part of a peer group where one, multiple, or even all friends have developed gender dysphoria and come out as transgender during the same timeframe and/or an increase in social media/internet use.

In the majority of cases, AYA mental well-being (MWB) and parent-child relationships (PCR) were rated as worse since the child announced that they were transgender (MWB worse 51.2%, better 13.6%; PCR worse 58.6%, better 8.6%). These indicators continued to degrade over time: At 2 or more years post-announcement, MWB was worse for 57.0% (better for 5.0%) and PCR was worse for 75.7% (better for 0%).

These are clear signs of parenting being unsupportive. Apparently, these parents refused to take their children to doctors for proper diagnosis (...and that parents who didn’t agree to take them for hormones are abusive and transphobic... - these issues aren't normally solved by parents, it should have been left up to professionals, but apparently it was left on self-diagnosis step), and disregarded the seriousness of their experienced emotions. Now, let's remember that no harm will come out of helping your child to socially transition. At best, they will grow out of it, at worst, they will have to transition later, and your support will be crucial. 

Yes, the tendency of cis people to call themselves trans does exist. No, it is not because of peer pressure and online trans communities. It is because some parents cannot bring themselves too meet their children's needs. It is because transgenderism is so demonized in modern society, that teenagers see it as a sign of rebellion against overcontrolling parenting. And people use this new tendency to stigmatize transgender identities further.
