Experimenting on Breastfeeding Babies: Guest Column

A 50-year-old man who identifies as a woman was able to “breastfeed” his grandchild after taking a series of experimental hormones. The researchers who made this possible proudly announced that this unidentified man was able to have this “experience” without any detrimental side effects to himself, as if that’s what breastfeeding is about, the experience of the adult. 

Not only has the FDA not approved these experimental drugs, it, in fact, strongly warns against them. Most medical professionals warn mothers against even taking cold medicine when breastfeeding and yet, somehow, proponents are praising this experimental use of these drugs as a step forward in “gender-affirming care.” 

Maya Forstater, the executive director of Sex Matters, rightly criticized, “Men should not be permitted, still less supported, to get between babies and their mothers or to use babies as props to validate their beliefs that they are women.” 

Children should never be social experiments to fulfill adult fantasies.

A Heresy to “Misgender” in Scotland: Guest Column

On April 1, the Scottish government made it illegal to “misgender” someone. The new law “makes it an offense to stir up hatred with threatening or abusive behavior on the basis of characteristics including age, disability, religion, sexual orientation and transgender identity,” with obviously the last two getting the most attention. 

Anyone found guilty of hurtful content could face up to seven years in jail, even for content published outside of Scotland. All it takes is for someone in Scotland to think it “might” be offensive. 

As Lois McLatchie Miller posted on X, “It was 1697 when the last man in Scotland was condemned for blasphemy. Today, we’ve introduced a new blasphemy law to punish heretics of the dominant Church of ‘woke.’” 

The promise of secularism was that religion would fade and freedom would rise. Instead, what we’ve done is replace the faith that gave us freedom with a new one that is far more intolerant.

U.K. Bars Puberty Blockers for Minors: Guest Column

The NHS announced the decision after a years-long study found no significant change in the mental health of children treated for gender dysphoria. 

Recently, the U.K.’s National Health Service (NHS) announced a new clinical policy barring the prescription of puberty-blocking drugs for minors. The decision came after a years-long public debate around transgender “care,” first started by a surge of referrals to the U.K.’s Tavistock gender clinic. After claims of malpractice, the NHS commissioned an independent review of the national clinic. 

The review found “no statistically significant difference in gender dysphoria, mental health, body image and psychosocial functioning in children and adolescents treated with [puberty blockers].” Review of additional data led the NHS to conclude “that there is not enough evidence to support the safety or clinical effectiveness of [puberty blockers] to make the treatment routinely available at this time.” 

In fact, puberty blockers are neither safe nor reversible, something even the World Professional Association for Transgender Health, the leading transgender medical organization, has been caught admitting.  

Thank God that the U.K. government will protect kids. Hopefully, the U.S. will follow suit.
