Former Trans Man Who Had Gender Reassignment Surgery — and Then De-Transitioned — Offers Warning to Caitlyn Jenner and James Younger

In April 1983, after two years of hormone therapy, Walt Heyer underwent gender reassignment surgery and became a woman, Laura Jensen. . .

Now in an explosive interview with DailyMail.com, Heyer, 79, has told how he turned from a man convinced that transitioning was the answer; to one evangelical in his view that the notion of Gender Dysphoria as illness and gender re-assignment surgery as cure is, ‘one of the most widely perpetrated and most dangerous lies’ of our time.

According to Heyer, troubled people are being pushed towards transitioning when what they need is therapy to address underlying issues such as childhood abuse, transvestic disorder and a host of other problems. . .

For Heyer the case [of the Texas 7-year-old] is personal. He revealed, ‘His father got in touch with me last year when I was in Texas speaking at a conference and I had the opportunity to meet the boy and spend time with him.’

After doing so Heyer is adamant, ‘He had no idea about being gender dysphoric, but his mother has such a strong influence on him, and she keeps feeding him this idea that he was female. I believe he was fearful about going against his mom.

WATCH: High School Football Player Asks to Pray with Opponent Whose Mom Has Cancer

A high school football player forgot about his team’s rivalry when he went over and asked if he could pray with his opponent whose mom has cancer.

It all went down in Texas when Sherman High School student Gage Smith walked over to West Mesquite High School player Ty Jordan at the end of the game last Friday night and asked if the two could pray together for Jordan’s mom, Tiffany Jordan, per the “Today” Show in a piece published Wednesday.

Ty’s mom, age 42, has stage 4 lung and bone cancer.

“It was meant for just me and him to have a moment and to pray over his family and for his mom,” Smith shared. “I just wanted to let him know there are other people thinking about him and his family, and let him know he has somebody to turn to.”

“I would’ve done that whether we would’ve won or lost,” he added, after his team beat Ty’s team 56-27. “During the game we’re enemies and we’re gonna play and try to win the game, but you still have that respect for the other opponent. I wanted to do that for him.” (Read more from “Watch: High School Football Player Asks to Pray with Opponent Whose Mom Has Cancer” HERE)

7-Year-Old Whose Mother Tried to Force a Gender Transition CHOOSES to Attend School as a Boy

James Younger, the 7-year-old at the heart of the Texas transgender custody battle that incited a national debate, has decided to attend school as a boy under his given name. . .

The boy’s father, Jeffrey Younger, insists his ex-wife, Dr. Anne Georgulas, has been pressuring their son James to undergo a gender transition since the child was 3 years old. . .

Georgulas has asked for Judge Cooks to be recused from the case and maintains that James insisted upon the transition.

After Younger was first denied custody rights and the case began to spark public outcry, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott ordered an investigation into the matter.

In addition to granting joint managing conservatorship, Judge Cooks also placed a gag order on Younger and Georgulas until both of their children reach age 18. (Read more from “7-Year-Old Whose Mother Tried to Force a Gender Transition Chooses to Attend School as a Boy” HERE)

Federal Judge Strikes down Trump Admin Rule Protecting Pro-Life Doctors

A federal district judge in New York has ruled against a Trump administration rule meant to protect the conscience rights of health care workers.

In a 147-page decision issued on Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Paul Engelmayer found the administration’s “conscience rule” unconstitutional because it uses the withholding of federal funds as an enforcement mechanism and ruled that the department of Health and Human Services acted “acted arbitrarily and capriciously” in promulgating it. The ruling also claims that the department was invoking powers that weren’t granted to it by Congress via federal law.

The measure was supposed to go into effect on November 22; however, Engelmayer — an Obama appointee — decided to vacate it “in its entirety.”

The Trump administration announced the rule back in May as an effort to protect the rights of people and institutions in the health care field who have moral objections to certain procedures like abortion, the provision of contraception, or “assisted suicide, euthanasia, or mercy killing.”

“This rule ensures that healthcare entities and professionals won’t be bullied out of the health care field because they decline to participate in actions that violate their conscience, including the taking of human life,” reads a statement from OCR Director Roger Severino at the time of introduction. “Protecting conscience and religious freedom not only fosters greater diversity in healthcare, it’s the law.” (For more the author of “Federal Judge Strikes down Trump Admin Rule Protecting Pro-Life Doctors” please click HERE)

Transgender ‘Man’ Upset Women Won’t Date Her

In an opinion piece for Vice.com, transgender [woman] Lee Hurley bewailed [her] plight in the dating arena, criticizing women for “ghosting” [her] once they find out that [she] is transgender (that is, a biological woman, too).

“Internet dating when I was a lesbian was infinitely easier than how it is now as a trans man,” Hurley lamented. “As a trans guy, the majority don’t seem to know what to make of me, so they run away.”

Perhaps the lack of success was due to the timing of the reveal? No, Hurley said [she] put that theory to the test and the results were clear.

“I’ve played around with the big reveal and I know the two are linked. It’s hard not to see a connection when you arrange a second date, drop the T bomb and then she cancels in the next breath,” he argued. “I’d be chatting with a woman, making her laugh and seemingly getting on well. Then I’d tell her and she’d vanish. Over and over and over. Before dates, during dates, after dates, it didn’t matter. The result was almost always the same.” . . .

So, in conclusion, women who won’t date a transgender man are “ignorant” and have a “limited view of how gender and sexuality works? Got it. (Read more from “Transgender ‘Man’ Upset Women Won’t Date Her” HERE)

Gun Control Activist Shoots Her Three Children Dead

A mother in Texas was found dead alongside her three children on Friday in an apparent triple murder-suicide.

Ashley Auzenne, 39, was known to have been battling depression and anxiety in addition to physical ailments such as arthritis and lupus at the time of her death, which was ruled as a suicide by a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Her three children, Parrish, 11, Eleanor, 9, and Lincoln, 7, were also killed by gunshots and their mother is the only suspect. She had just finalized a contentious divorce from their father, Murvin Auzenne Jr.

Auzenne was a vocal advocate for stricter gun control in the United States with multiple social media postings calling for an end to gun violence and Facebook profile pictures that bore the hashtags #Enough and #EndGunViolence.

Here’s Everything the NYT Left out of a Misleading Article on Transgender Athletes

The New York Times left crucial context out of an article on the transgender sports issue published in Monday’s paper.

Times reporter Jeremy Peters left out all examples of biologically male athletes dominating female athletics from his article, which noted that the transgender sports issue has become a factor in the Kentucky’s governor race.

Biologically male athletes have racked up achievements in: high school girls’ track and field, NCAA women’s track and field, NCAA women’s cross country, international women’s cycling and women’s powerlifting, among other sports. None of those examples were included in Peters’s article.

Peters, who did not return an email seeking comment, also described it as an “alarmist claim” to say that “If Democrats have their way, soon boys will be able to compete against girls in school sports.” But that’s not an “alarmist claim” — it’s a fact.

The Equality Act, which passed the House with unanimous Democratic support in May and is supported by every Democratic presidential frontrunner, would force public schools across the country to include male athletes who identify as transgender in female athletics. The Times article mentioned the Equality Act zero times. (Read more from “Here’s Everything the NYT Left out of a Misleading Article on Transgender Athletes” HERE)

GOP State Lawmakers Craft Bills to Ban Child Gender Transition Treatment

Three Republican lawmakers in three states, including Kentucky where elections will be held on Tuesday, are crafting legislation to protect children from controversial gender transition treatment such as puberty-blocking drugs or surgery.

Kentucky State Rep. Savannah Maddox (R) wrote in a recent Facebook post that she “began drafting a bill designed to protect children under the age of 18 from gender reassignment surgery or from receiving drug treatments designed to alter their natal gender.”

“I am a strong advocate for parents’ rights — but it is not the right of a parent to permanently alter a child’s gender or identity, even when based upon certain behaviors or the perceptions of a child’s mind which has not yet had time to fully develop,” Maddox wrote.

As Breitbart News reported, Georgia State Rep. Ginny Ehrhart (R) is not targeting youth whose parents claim they want to change their gender but the medical profession and its role in giving children life-altering, gender-changing treatment. Her legislation would make the practice a felony. . .

But LGBT activists are reporting that these lawmakers are “targeting transgender” children, including a report in the left-wing website The Advocate. (Read more from “GOP State Lawmakers Craft Bills to Ban Child Gender Transition Treatment” HERE)

Kanye’s ‘Jesus Is King’ Album Debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard Charts, Tying Record

Kanye West’s new counter-cultural, Jesus-praising album has generated a ton of public discussion since its release; now, it has also generated a new tied record for its creator.

A story at Billboard explains that Kanye West’s “Jesus Is King” album — which was released on October 25 by G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam Records — has become the artist’s ninth consecutive number-one debut on the Billboard 200 chart, tying him with Eminem’s record.

According to the outlet, the Billboard 200 chart ranks album sales based on a combination of traditional purchases, downloads, and song streams. West’s newest album earned 264,000 “equivalent album units” during its first week, which ended on Thursday. Of that total, 109,000 were from album sales, while the balance was largely from streaming activity.

West’s ninth straight number-one album ties him for sixth for overall number-one albums in the chart’s history alongside the Rolling Stones, Madonna, and Garth Brooks, Billboard explains. The Beatles currently hold the top spot with 19 number-one albums overall. “Jesus Is King” also helped drive the single biggest streaming week of West’s career, the story adds.

Past its sales, download, and streaming numbers, the album also appears to be generating some interest in finding out about Christianity as well. According to a Faithwire report, internet searches for scripture and questions about Christianity spiked during the week after its release. The American Bible Society, which was founded in 1816, even responded to the trend by offering to send up to 1,000 free Bibles to scripturally curious Kanye fans.

But despite all the hype “Jesus Is King” has created, not everyone has been completely on board with the the new God-fearing, Bible-quoting Kanye. While West’s public conversion and new direction have driven some to inquire about Christianity, others have taken the more skeptical skeptical approach of questioning the legitimacy of the change.

One megachurch pastor, Greg Laurie, even felt the need to address the artist’s public inquisitors, telling them to “Just shut up for a minute” and “pray that he gets grounded in his faith, pray that he’s a seed sown on good ground that brings forth much fruit.” (For more from the author of “Kanye’s ‘Jesus Is King’ Album Debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard Charts, Tying Record” please click HERE)

In Decision Certain to Draw Fire, Journal Will Publish Heavily Criticized Paper on Gender Differences in Physics

In a move likely to attract criticism, a peer-reviewed journal has agreed to publish an Italian physicist’s highly contested analysis of publications, which concludes that female physicists don’t face more career obstacles than their male colleagues. The journal says it will also simultaneously publish critiques of the paper, which one member of the journal’s editorial board says is “flawed” and contains “unsubstantiated claims.”

Last year, physicist Alessandro Strumia received widespread criticism after presenting a talk at CERN, the European particle physics laboratory near Geneva, Switzerland, where he was a guest professor. During the presentation, he asserted that physics was built and invented by men, and stated on a slide that “Physics is not sexist against women.” Thousands of physicists signed a letter voicing concerns about Strumia’s views and some researchers published detailed critiques of his findings and methods, which focused on published papers in the field of “fundamental physics” that includes theoretical and experimental studies of fundamental particles, cosmology, and astrophysics. Some of Strumia’s critics have argued that such literature analyses are not sufficient to support his claims. Both CERN and Strumia’s employer, the University of Pisa in Italy, launched investigations. Earlier this year, CERN cut all ties with Strumia and the university released a statement condemning his comments.

The upcoming paper, which Strumia has posted on his website, has been accepted for publication by Quantitative Science Studies (QSS), which publishes “theoretical and empirical research on science and the scientific workforce.” Strumia’s study examines 1.3 million fundamental physics papers, published from 1970 to this year, which are indexed by CERN’s INSPIRE database. After identifying authors as men or women based on their names, the study confirms what Strumia calls a “well known” gender skew in fundamental physics: For every four new male Ph.D.s who publish, there is just one new female Ph.D. Strumia also concludes that male and female physicists have similar opinions about which papers deserve to be cited, and that authors of both genders cite their own studies at similar rates. (That finding diverges from a 2016 analysis, which Strumia cites, that concluded male authors cite their own work on average 56% more than female authors.) Strumia also finds that the publication records, which show institutional affiliations, reveal no statistically significant difference in how quickly men and women are hired after receiving their Ph.D.s, or the rate at which they stop publishing in the field, which Strumia uses as an indicator for when a researcher has left academic research. Strumia notes this finding contradicts other studies that have found that a higher proportion of women drop out of academia than men.

The primary takeaway from his study, Strumia tells ScienceInsider, is that men and women have equal opportunities in fundamental physics, and women don’t necessarily face a more hostile work environment. “This is what comes out from the data,” he says. “I believe [this] because I see this in the data.” (Read more from “In Decision Certain to Draw Fire, Journal Will Publish Heavily Criticized Paper on Gender Differences in Physics” HERE)
