Trans Activism and State-Mandated Mass Psychosis

Jul 23, 2017

To really understand what the gender bender activism is all about, we need to look at some standard medical terminology. Let me offer a few terms we don’t seem to use very much anymore but which are incredibly germane to all things in the trans revolution. Here are a few online definitions of some key terms:

Psychosis – noun: a severe mental disorder in which thought and emotions are so impaired that contact is lost with external reality.

Delusional – adjective: characterized by or holding idiosyncratic beliefs or impressions that are contradicted by reality or rational argument, typically as a symptom of mental disorder.

Delusional disorder – Previously called paranoid disorder, is a type of serious mental illness called a “psychosis” in which a person cannot tell what is real from what is imagined.

Delusion – noun: A delusion is a belief that is held with strong conviction despite superior evidence to the contrary.

Deranged – adjective: mad; insane. “A deranged gunman”.

Deranged – Deranged may refer to psychosis, a generic psychiatric term for a mental state often described as involving a “loss of contact with reality”.

lunacy 1Notice that all of these words have to do with being out of touch with reality. Not too long ago such people were called psychotics and the like, and they were often put away in insane asylums and mental institutions for their own good, and to protect the general public.

There were plenty of cases like this back then. In part this was because not so long ago pretty much everyone agreed that there were objective truths and things like reality which we all need to get in sync with. Those who were clearly deranged and delusional were easily recognised and quickly dealt with.

Back in 1964 this was still certainly the case, and a book was released in that year called The Three Christs of Ypsilanti. One site describes it as follows:

[This] is a book-length psychiatric case study by Milton Rokeach, concerning his experiment on a group of three patients with paranoid schizophrenia at Ypsilanti State Hospital in Ypsilanti, Michigan. The book details the interactions of the three patients, Clyde Benson, Joseph Cassel, and Leon Gabor, who each believed himself to be Jesus Christ. Rokeach got the idea from an article in Harper’s Magazine describing two women who both believed they were the Virgin Mary. After being assigned as psychiatric hospital roommates, one of the women recovered from her delusion as a result of conversations with the roommate and was discharged. As a similar study of delusional belief systems, Rokeach brought together three men who each claimed to be Jesus Christ and confronted them with one another’s conflicting claims, while encouraging them to interact personally as a support group.

I mention all this because in all these cases, we have folks who have clearly lost contact with reality, and they are suffering some real mental disorders. And a case can be made that the whole transgender craze is something rather similar. Many are in fact saying this, and I have often cited Dr. Paul R. McHugh.

He is the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry. He has said that transgenderism is a “mental disorder” that merits treatment, that sex change is “biologically impossible,” and that people who promote sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder.

And before I go any further let me yet again distinguish the trans madness from a very rare and very different issue – genuine cases which we call Intersex. Here we find real genital ambiguity and the like. As mentioned, it is very rare, and has nothing to do with this modern transsexual revolution.

So let me look at just the most recent example of this sexual insanity in action. It comes from the UK, and I hate to say it, this particular case of complete and utter moonbattery is not being pushed by Labour or the Greens, but by the conservatives! The article, which first appeared in the Times, opens as follows:

British adults will be able to change their gender legally without a doctor’s diagnosis under government plans that will transform British society. Men will be able to identify themselves as women — and women as men — and have their birth certificates altered to record their new gender.
Ministers plan to tear up the existing rules which mean that people have to live for two years as their desired gender before they can officially change sex. A consultation on the Gender Recognition Bill, to be published in coming weeks, will also include proposals to scrap the requirement that people get a formal medical diagnosis of “gender dysphoria” before applying to switch gender.
Critics warned that allowing people to effectively “self-identify” as a member of the opposite sex, while maintaining the anatomy of their birth gender, would unleash a firestorm of legal cases over access to women-only hospital wards, prisons, lavatories, changing rooms and competitive sports.
Justine Greening, the UK minister for women and equalities, called the move to give more rights to transgender people the third great “step forward” after equality for women and the legalisation of same-sex marriage in 2013. The announcement is timed to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in 1967. Greening said ministers want to “streamline and demedicalise” gender change to make it easier for people to switch their identity legally.
In future people are expected to be required only to make a statutory declaration that they intend to live in the acquired gender until death — in line with arrangements already adopted in Ireland. The consultation will address whether those whose gender is “non-binary” should also be able to define themselves as “X” on their birth certificates.

Yes I am just as gobsmacked as you are. And can you believe that it is the Tories who are pushing this utter idiocy!? We expect the nutter loonies on the radical left to come up with this sort of delusional nonsense, but the conservative party? Really?

Presumably these social engineers will soon enough demand that children get the same “rights”. In which case it looks like the recent sensible advice offered by Matt Walsh to have doctors who push ‘transgenderism’ on children thrown into prison for child abuse won’t even be needed here. As he said in the conclusion of his piece:

A kid will believe that a fat man in red pajamas rides on a flying sleigh to bring him presents on Christmas if that’s what you tell her. She will believe that there’s a boy trapped in her girl body if that’s what you tell her. They aren’t coming up with this stuff on their own. A young boy might spout a whole bunch of fantastic nonsense about being a girl or being a triceratops or being Batman, but it is the parent, and then the doctor, who takes that nonsense and converts it into a lifestyle choice, which will then be made permanent in the form of drugs and surgery. All of this is done for the sake of the doctors who want to get paid, and the parents who want to feel very trendy and enlightened with their fancy new “transgender” kid, not for the kid himself. The kid is just a vessel for the doctors and parents to fulfill their sick ambitions and fantasies.
The parents in this case should have their children removed from the home. They should be sent to prison. The doctors ought to join them in prison. They can share a cell and experiment on each other if they want. But the kids need to be left out of it. The kids need to be protected. And if so-called conservatives in this country weren’t so completely spineless and impotent, they would be demanding that the law do exactly that. Enough is enough.

And do not forget that there are already consequences for those normal people still left who refuse to bow down to this militant lunacy. In a recent article I examined just a few cases of this. Here are some cases in abbreviated form:

-California Bill Forces Transgender Bathrooms Into Nursing Homes – March 29, 2017
-Catholic Hospital Sued by Transgender Man for Not Performing Sex Change Hysterectomy – April 28, 2017
-New law allows government to take children away if parents don’t accept kids’ ‘gender identity’ – June 5, 2017
-UK threatens to close Jewish school for not teaching 3-year-olds about transgenderism – June 28, 2017
-Police Advise People To Ask Others’ ‘Preferred Pronouns’, Publish ‘Gender-Neutral’ Pronoun Chart – June 30, 2017

There is a war going on, and our elites and our rulers have sided with the inmates of the asylum against everyone else. They want the rest of us to embrace and affirm the delusional and the deranged. It is a full-scale war on family, on children, on biology, and on reality.

As I said, not too long ago those who could not live in the real world were put away for their own good. Today our activists, elites, ‘experts,’ leaders and politicians are all doing their best to create an entire generation of psychotics whose feet are firmly planted in mid-air.

The old saying about ‘Those whom the gods wish to destroy they first make mad,’ has now been taken up with the utmost seriousness by our PC overlords. And they are succeeding far beyond the imagination of anything those who first used this phrase could have predicted.

BTW, I have decided to identify as a can of Dr Pepper. I insist on seeing this fully and officially recognised and confirmed on my birth certificate, my passport, at all government agencies, and in fine bottle shops and supermarkets everywhere.

  • Hahaha…

    Good article Bill,

    After a brief interlude on the side of insanity, it wasn’t long before this saint realised that in the mental health industry there is a divorce between the human and the soul in treating this important matter of the heart. We need to we rewrite the history books to reflect the fact that the apple/fruit did not just fall from the tree as the old wives tale denotes but was taken by the careful calculation and deception of the woman by none other than the father of all lies himself. Realising that God’s Story https://www.truthforlife.org/thestory/?utm_content=57349076&utm_medium=social&utm_source=googleplus of Creation, Fall and Redemption is taking place all around us to bring about our Eternal Salvation even without our realising that fact or the fact that God loved us enough to send his Son to be the Catalyst for God’s awesome plan to redeem us from the sin which so easily entangles us all without discrimination!

    May God forgive those among us who think of themselves more highly than we ought, leading others down the path of eternal damnation and eternal separation from God, let us all learn the WAY of Following Jesus Well thewaydiscipleship.com Again, great piece Bill that would be laughable if the matter weren’t so alarming thank you keep up the good work hopefully more of us high-minded Christians will see the ‘moon battery’ of which you so eloquently write. Blessings Brother

  • I had no idea this was going through our Parliament. They’re mad! Justine Greening supports anything that is homosexual/trans/XYZ. The truth is, the British Conservative party is no longer truly conservative…some people have labelled them red-tinged Tories. This is utter disconnect from reality, I’ve had first-hand experience of someone with a genuine psychosis and it’s frightening to watch an intelligent person succumb to this insanity. Years ago I could never imagine a government sanctioning such laws…I can say that there will be objections in the House of Commons from a select few intelligent MPs, but I have no doubt the rest of the fools will pass it through.

  • On TV and in the cinema you can imagine just about anything and with the huge capabilities we have these days you can make it seem absolutely real. What is happening is the fantasy world that we have created with these technologies is seen, subconsciously, as being a reality and so what people do is impose that concept onto reality. They actually begin to believe internally that whatever you can image can be real. I’m not just talking about the transsexuals of the world, I’m talking about Prime Ministers and Presidents and everywhere else as well. This idea gives the impression that mankind is vastly more powerful than we really are and creates a huge amount of pride that further alienates people from God. The imagined world people live in is what tells people it’s OK to kill others and act unjustly because we don’t actually feel the results. It is the imagined world that says there are no consequences to actions. It is the imagine world that relentlessly portray huge destruction that people do not feel in reality and so diminish in their thoughts as to what the real effects of destructive behavior are. This is why Revelation 13 speaks of the “image” of the Beast that people worship and how that image is developed and formed by Satan through the Second Beast that speaks like a dragon. This, of course, is in line with the great delusion of 2 Thessalonians 2. The only antidote to this is the Truth that comes from God and the associated respect for Truth. What we see around us now is complete disrespect for truth and huge respect for lies. To anyone who loves the truth it is obvious where this originates. The number of lies people have to swallow to believe a man could be a woman or that homosexual relationships are equal to the normal, biologically functional idea of what marriage has always been, is literally astounding but this degree of stupefying delusion is exactly what has been prophesied. To believe a man can compete against women in sport and that is fair or that it is just to take away a child’s parent or to believe that it is OK to genitally mutilate, even children, to comply with wrong thinking or that there is nothing wrong with homosexual acts or that parents do not have the right to raise their own children, demonstrates just how far this delusion has taken us down the road of irrationality. Even fifteen years ago I would not have thought it possible that we could have sunk so far so quickly.

  • Unbelievably sad and frightening state of affairs.

  • When the evil and madness in the world seem overwhelming, reading your articles is such an encouragement, Bill. God bless you.

  • Look up the case of Noel Cromtpon Hall, the first transgender ever to be allowed to use a women’s toilet [in a womens prison too] anywhere legally in the entire world. The head of NSW Anti-Discrimination board made the policy if you say you are a women you are a woman, as a result a rapist with AIDS was let loose in a Women’s prison and 4 women were abused. He was given the Order of Australia for achivements for the gay rights lobby in 200 after some of the rape allegations were covered up if you check Austlii edu Case law. The rape policy of NSW Prisons (operation procedure manual) classified on the day he was parolled. And the biggest bombshell he isn’t even gay and still looks like a man. In 2003 the policy that “chicks with penises” can’t be allowed to use NSW Silverwater Woman’s prisons was revised from the 1999 Female Inmate Classification Manual. The NSW Anti-Discrimination Board sued the prison to pay for his sex change, then sued again when it was revealed the warden cared about female inmates safety and released his HIV status. What we have her is a non-homosexual opportunist who played the system to get away with rape whilst in prison. Research the facts for yourself as I did. Christopher Puplick AM funded as head of NSW Southern Sydney Area Self Service in their 1999 annual report that made the policy and pays noel cromtpon’s hall hush money pension to this day. Please see the picture of him leaving prison. He is not recongizable as a women in any way shape or form. He’s also known as “Maddison Hall”. Imagine if the Americans gave the congressional medal of honor to the mass rapists at Aru Garib Prison in IRAQ, then they would have done as shameful act to Australia’s king of gay pride who literally wrote the book on Gay Marriage for Australian Marriage Equality. He after causing the biggest AIDS cluster in a female prison was then paid by the government to head the Misterial Task force on Hep C and AIDS. He now has the power to drug any alleged rape victims in NSW Prisons as the chairman of NSW Justice Legal. Please see his speech depending Robert “Dolly” Dunn saying the proud boylover until the day he died is “innocent until proving guilty” and only had sex with “17 year olds” contary to his conviction for having sex with pre-pubesent boys. He also gave 4 submissions to interfer with the Wood Royal commission complaining to investigate any single gay pedophile is a “wtichhunt” against the entire gay [pedophile?] community and will not be tolerated. You have to see that document of his on the Australian institute of criminology published in 1997. It will blow your mind.

  • I agree with you Jo.

  • Bill I have a question regarding gender dysphoria. Are there any other animals in the animal kingdom that have this? Whenever I ask someone who supports this they bring up how some fish can change their sexes for survival when a female fish dies, the male sometimes changes sex. But this isn’t the same as a human being, since transgenders are still the sex they’re born as even if they got a sex change. What I mean is that, is there a another male mammal that thinks he’s a female mammal and does something that only female mammal have been known to do? The reason I ask this is that if there aren’t any mammals that have this then how can some people say this behavior is normal when there aren’t any other animals that do this? I don’t even think the theory of evolution has anything on this either.

  • ” ……….Men will be able to identify themselves as women — and women as men ……..asylum……”

    As my mum often used to say “That’s why the name is on the outside of the building.”

    God Bless Bill.

  • Amen to Naomi. Now let’s all write something on this to a newspaper. Thank God the Greens are wilting. Thank God for Bill and the growing army of commentators with their feet on the solid rock of reality and their heads where they must be, to help the rest of us do something – the vocation of good men and women. Grace to it!

  • I guess the Tories can no longer be considered Right Wing, or is it rather, as Melanie Phillips observed, “The great political struggle of our times is not between Left and Right. It is between those who are connected to truth, reason and reality and those who are not. It reflects a fundamental division in the West, whose fate will be decided by its outcome.” But let us not lose heart. I like the little candle that Robert Worthington has lit, rather than cursing the darkness.

  • If you identify as a can of Dr Pepper then you definitely need help!!! That’s vile stuff that tastes like cough syrup. How anyone can drink it for pleasure I can’t fathom. Aside from that the rest of your article is sadly all too familiar.

  • Re my earlier comment. Noel Crompton Hall is not gay. He’s a man still with his penis who never had the gender reassignment surgery who gets out of jail with AIDS and gets in sexual relationships with more women!!!

    There is a massive coverup going here. How can a man who had “gender reassignment SURGERY” make women so obsessed with him without the biological equipment to inspire women to be such a way….

    This is going to develop into a big story. I’ll try and get Bernard Gaynor on the case.
