That tranny genocide is something, huh?
It’s like the Yakov Smirnoff of genocides: “In Trannyland, genocide victims kill you!”
In light of last week’s Christian school massacre, I wanna revisit something I wrote a year ago regarding female influence in trannyism. I pointed out that “groomer” doesn’t explain why so many trannyism-in-school propagandists are women.
What explains the female presence in the defining mania of the 21st century?
The core belief of trannyists is that children are born genderless. Doctors make a guess—they “assign” a gender—and until kids “discover” their true gender (i.e., until an adult leads them to it), they’ll be condemned to a life of misery and suicide.
This game runs on the Scientology engine. Hubbard’s the template: We’re all born with “thetans” inside us, and that’s why we’re unhappy. But Scientologists can pry the thetans out (for a fee). And then we’ll be blissful!
Now, there was another mania that used the Scientology template, and by studying that mania, we can answer the question about women and trannyism: the 1980s child molestation panic (and the adjacent Satanic ritual abuse panic).
For most Americans today, that period is either a distant memory or something that happened before their birth. At best, people know the vague details. There was a mass psychosis in the ’80s and early ’90s that led to teachers and day-care workers being falsely charged with outlandish molestation crimes including sacrificing children to Satan and raping babies on altars.
The molestation/abuse panic was rooted in a “truth” that mirrors trannyism almost exactly. Your unhappiness is caused by the fact that you were molested as a child. This is cart/horse stuff. It’s not “I was molested therefore I’m unhappy,” it’s “I feel unhappy therefore I was molested.” Children who acted up or out, who seemed distressed, sad, distracted, or who did poorly in school, must therefore be molestation victims. And it was up to child psychologists, therapists, and behavioral experts to extract the memories of that abuse.
As in trannyism, the mania was built around the “discovery” of (and blind belief in) a false principle.
The trannyism craze: “An unhappy kid indicates a kid who was assigned the wrong gender at birth and I must suss out their true gender in order to save them.”
The molestation craze: “An unhappy kid indicates a kid who was molested and I must suss out the molestation in order to save them.”
Here’s where the trannyism and molestation crazes deviate from the Scientology template: Scientology is all about money. Trannyism and molestation mania are/were largely about mindless do-goodism.
But money was nevertheless a factor for starting and sustaining the molestation panic. The 1974 Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act doled out dough to the states on the condition that they set up an infrastructure of abuse reporting. Hungry for funds, states began one-upping each other in reporting “cases.” The more cases, the more money a state would receive (Florida went from sixteen reported cases in 1965 to 28,000 by 1975).
That’s how politicians got involved; there was money in it. And much of that money went toward paying “experts.” Arguably the two most egregious early charlatans were psychiatrist Roland Summit and sociologist David Finkelhor. In the late ’70s, Summit “discovered” that children cannot lie about abuse. It’s not physically possible. Therefore, once you force an admission from the child that they were abused, the child cannot walk it back (Summit, a quack extraordinaire, went so far as to say that if a child says they weren’t molested, that’s proof they were. It’s proof if they say yes, it’s proof if they say no. And this became canon).
Essentially, a child couldn’t “detransition” from “molestation victim.” When the investigator forces an admission of molestation by any means necessary, the child’s confession cannot be taken back. If your principle is that a child cannot lie, then you cannot ever accept that a child lied.
Finkelhor helped pioneer the ritual abuse scare. That was his deal.
So by the early ’80s, the rules had been established:
(1) Any child with behavioral issues has been molested. Proof of molestation isn’t needed; the behavioral issues are the proof.
(2) Force the molestation admission any way possible because untruths about molestation cannot emanate from a child’s mouth, so once you get the words out, your case is proven.
(3) It’s not just individual molesters at play but entire networks of ritualistic abusers.
Okay, so where do women come in? Well, the child psychologist/child behaviorist field has always been female-heavy (even now it’s 70.5 percent female), so there’s that. But also, women (generally speaking) tend to think of themselves as “empaths,” and sussing out what’s in the heart of a child (be it their “true gender” or their “hidden molestation”) is a job women naturally take to.
Plus, middle-class white women have always been suckers for the notion that there’s a “key” to achieving a state of uniform, constant happiness; you just have to find it. As feminist author Elayne Rapping observed in Social Policy in 1997, if not for women, the “recovery movement” never would’ve become a billion-dollar industry filled with gullible seekers of “perfect wellness.”
If you hit that white middle-class female demo with gimmicky crap like “The Secret” (the pseudoscience Oprah was pushing in the 2000s until it killed a few women), it’s like candy to them. “The secret” to curing children of unwellness is to uncover their molestation experience. “The secret” to curing children of unwellness is to uncover their true gender.
But there was a problem, and this is why the molestation panic flamed out within a decade while the tranny craze won’t: The molestation panic pitted two female-dominated professions against each other. Child psychologists/behaviorists vs. elementary school teachers and day-care workers (80 percent female professions). Of the innocent people arrested in 1980s/90s molestation panics, most were teachers/day-care workers, and many were women.
Drove the teachers’ union crazy! If you read articles from that era, the teachers—collapsing under an onslaught of accusations and witch trials—sound like parents today complaining about tranny propaganda. “The kids are being brainwashed! Just because they say something’s ‘their truth’ doesn’t mean it’s true! The kids are falling for a fad; their friends say they’ve been molested, so they do too! The media’s feeding the frenzy! The kids are confused; it’s the job of adults to correct them, not indulge them!”
The tranny craze will go on much longer because this time, the teachers and the child psychologists/behaviorists are on the same side, united against parents. Teachers and shrinks (predominantly women) sussing out the “secret gender” of kids (to save them! To free them!) as parents and families pay the price, everyone having conveniently forgotten that just 35 years ago the shrinks were the ones doing the sussing and the teachers were the ones paying the price.
The molestation mania of the ’80s was led by people screaming “die groomer!” (or words of the time to that extent), and today’s trannymania is being fought by people who think screaming “die groomer!” is the cure. But by examining the outsize role of women in both pathologies, it becomes clear that there’s far more at play than “grooming.” Male trannies are easy to figure out: They’re typically autogynephiliacs. With them it’s sexual. But it’s not sexual with the female advocates. They see themselves as rescuers of children, just as they did during the molestation panic. That makes them more dangerous. The men just wanna beat off while wearing a dress as someone calls them ma’am. The women possess a savior complex. Fanatics convinced they’re saving the lives of children are damn difficult to defeat.
One must understand the psychology behind the fanaticism. Which is a tall order for conservatives, because thoughtful contemplation isn’t always their thing.
Which is why I’ll close by examining the “Satan” aspect of the panic. This is something you likely have a backwards understanding of. The “satanic panic” did not come from the religious right. It came from the left. As the hack psychologists and therapists were pulling molestation confessions from kids, rewarding them for every new ghastly detail they “remembered,” the kids began making up stories that mirrored the horror movies of the time. Devils, demons, blood-drinking. As British anthropologist Jean La Fontaine pointed out in 2001, children being coerced into confessing molestation in the early ’80s conjured up Exorcist imagery, while those in the early ’90s invoked Hannibal Lecter.
This is why so many of the day-care facilities charged with satanic abuse were church-based. The more religious training the kids had—the more their minds had been filled with devil imagery—the more supernatural their “confessions.”
These days we think of the satanic panic as a rightist venture, but it was the opposite: It was a leftist venture that largely victimized Christians.
Ellen Bass and Laura Davis, leftists whose now-discredited book The Courage to Heal helped open the satanic panic floodgates, described their work as “a progressive movement to redress the rights of the disenfranchised and oppressed.” Roland Summit himself called his work “progressive.” A 1985 WaPo article cheered the crusade against “satanic ritual abusers” by framing it as a fight between the good guys (“psychologists, television producers, federal bureaucrats, police, social workers, elected officials and sexual reformers”) vs. the bad guys (“ministers, priests, teachers, day-care workers, and scoutmasters”).
That WaPo piece slammed conservative Christians for trying to stop the panic. That’s why it’s so ironic that today the common belief is that conservative Christians started it. Indeed, this false history is now accepted unquestioningly by “experts” in the field (author Richard Beck, whose 2015 best-seller about the 1980s panic received a well-deserved drubbing in the NY Times for pinning the blame on conservatives) and—again, ironically—by today’s rightists, who, manipulable as always, react to leftists saying, “You started the satanic panic,” by doing the knee-jerk oppositional defiance shtick, “You bet we did! And we stand by it, too!”
From Cerno (or was it Poso? Yeah, it was Cerno) advocating a return to the panic because “horror movies, metal, hip-hop, and secular music open demonic portals,” to alt-right screecher Neema Parvini (a.k.a. OGRolandRat a.k.a. Academic Agent) belching that “every rightwing moral panic for the past 300 years were justified INCLUDING the Satanic Panic of the 1980s,” rightists take the bait because of course they do.
But, in fact, you know the biggest powerhouse behind the 1980s satanic panic?
The Tavistock Institute. Valerie Sinason, psychoanalyst/psychotherapist at Tavistock, was perhaps the most influential promulgator of satanic ritual abuse hysteria.
Yes, that’s the same Tavistock Institute behind the tranny craze; the same Tavistock that had its gender clinic forcibly closed by the NHS last year for butchering and chemically castrating children in the name of trannyism.
Tavistock launched that gender clinic in 1989. They laid the groundwork for the tranny craze just as they’d earlier laid the groundwork for the satanic panic.
And here we come full circle, a direct line leading from one craze to another via the same institute and the same Ph.D.’d madmen and madwomen moving from one mania to another, bringing misery to the world in the name of saving children.
If you just wanna scream “groomer,” you’ll miss the big picture. You’ll find yourself unable to explain the role of eggheads, quacks, and women in the tranny crusade, and as a result, you’ll find yourself at a loss regarding how to oppose it.
It’s simply the leftist-birthed satanic molestation panic redux, way more dangerous this time because old rivals are now allies.
And while I have no magic bullet to take down the beast, I can at least tell you what won’t help.
A stubborn ignorance of the nuances and history of the pathology won’t help.
Stubborn ignorance never helps anything, but in a fight this existential, if there were ever a time to drop the cheap sloganeering and jump into the weeds with a scythe, it’s now.
