Calgary’s Insane Bylaw

dwr.jpgTo North Americans that have kept their minds throughout 50 years of postmodernism, it’s become increasingly clear that many Californians have lost theirs. A couple of legislators in “going broke” California are proposing spending $15 million subsidizing so-called gender transitioning therapy and surgery.

Laura Perry is going to testify against the spending. About a decade ago she had a double mastectomy because she believed that she was a man trapped in a woman’s body. She thought it was going to change her life, but says she was devastated when she realized that her surgery actually hadn’t made her a man. She says that her suicidal thoughts and those of many in a similar situation, were actually worse after the so-called treatment.

Another person opposing the bill is Dr. Quentin L. Van Meter, a board-certified Pediatric Endocrinologist with 40 years of experience. He says: “Biological bedrock science proves that human beings are binary sexual beings with complementary anatomy that is intended to facilitate procreation.”

I’ve been saying the same thing, albeit slightly differently. “Human beings evolved, or were created, or were created by evolution, to mate heterosexually. That is not only the natural order of things in our species, but it is in every animal species, and even in many plant species. Sexual attraction or gender identification outside of that order, is disorder. In fact, children who believe that they’re not the gender with which they were born, are scientifically referred to as having GID, or Gender Identity Disorder. Likewise, those sexually attracted to the same sex have a sexual attraction disorder.”

That biological observation in no way suggests or excuses mistreatment or discrimination against people with those disorders. I believe that now, and I lived it nearly 60 years ago. Hanging out with a gay friend, now, is trendy. In Calgary in 1963, not so much.

 

Dr SohScience is based on facts, and as a Calgarian, I find it embarrassing that our City Counselors are traveling that same intellectually incoherent path through the postmodern wilderness as those California legislators. They’re pursuing a nanny-state bylaw that forbids individuals from receiving counseling that might help them leave a lifestyle that they are uncomfortable with. But those same individuals, and even little children, are encouraged to receive counseling that affirms them in living a life of sexual identity or attraction disorder. Quack surgeons in the LGBT movement are performing mastectomies on little girls as young as thirteen.

The assertion by radical activists in the LGBT community, that no one ever truly leaves the LGBT lifestyle, is a lie. I’ve been to several conferences where there were many individuals who testified that they had, and I’ve had personal conversations with them. Do some research and you’ll find thousands.

Here’s a reality check. I had a friend who lived a straight life until he was in his late forties, and then came out that he had spent his life feeling like he was a female trapped in a male body. So about 15 years ago he took the hormones. Then was legally mutilated by a surgeon who assured him that he was now a woman. Two years later he confided to me it had been a horrible mistake and that henceforth he would live as what he was, a man minus his genitals.

My friend’s story should make you cry, and it should make you angry. Because Calgary counselors are now saying that what happened to my friend was acceptable, but, that if he was now in the same situation and sought counseling to help him live by his DNA, his counselor could be fined, and jailed. Pardon me for being so blunt, but you have to have stepped across the border, into insanity, to believe that that is rational.

Gender Fluidity Debunked

dwr.jpgGender fluidity is a big deal these days. Self-styled progressives, I call them Progressivists because there’s nothing progressive about them, are trying to convince everyone from little children to athletes and politicians, that gender is nothing more than a social construct and we can be any gender we want, depending on how we feel when we get up in the morning. Sexual Progressivists are now suggesting that there are over 100 genders, although the number seems to be as fluid as they claim gender itself is.

Of course it’s complete nonsense, and would be funny except that it is terribly dangerous. They’re into our schools and kindergartens – there are actually doctors who boast that they start transitioning little kids as young as three – and famous Hollywood stars tell the world that they’re raising their child gender-neutral. There’s nothing progressive about it; it’s child abuse disguised as a virtue signalling.

It’s happening around the Western world, but even here in conservative Calgary, our City Council voted 100% in favor of bringing forth a statute that would bar a person with a gender disorder, wanting to leave that lifestyle, from seeking any sort of counseling including from their pastor or psychiatrist. This in the spite of the fact that multiplied thousands have successfully left such a lifestyle.

At the same time these woke politicians seem to be totally fine with quack psychiatrists encouraging gender transitioning and quack surgeons cutting the genitals from a male and cosmetically making him into a female. I have a friend who had it done. He told me was the biggest mistake of his life.

Dr. Debra Soh is an expert, and sort of a Jordan Peterson in the area of sex. She’s committed to truth! The interviewer in this short video is occasionally crude, but Dr. Soh is obviously an expert and completely professional, and she destroys the notion that babies are born gender-neutral and that it’s just parents and teachers in society that train them to be feminine or masculine.

Dr Soh

But if you live anywhere in Western Society there are radicals like Alberta’s Dr. Kris Wells, (he supervised a government of Alberta website, available to children as young as five, that included multiple links to pornography. I blogged about it here, and it was read thousands of times in nearly 50 countries)… and the ones that run your teacher’s unions, whose agenda is to sexually confuse our kids.

GID Sports, and other endeavors.

dwr.jpgMale athletes who are noncompetitive in men sports, can now announce that they are henceforth a woman, and then, brazenly insist that they must be allowed to compete in women’s sports. Unsurprisingly, they make out like bandits, which they sort of are.

I mean, aren’t they stealing medals and trophies and records from real women, who, through no fault of their own, are on average lighter, and with much less muscle mass and upper body strength than biological men? Real female athletes are getting fed up with it, although many hold their tongue for fear of being ostracized or booted by spineless, politically correct sports organizations. Look at the picture. What exactly is the guy in the middle proud of?  Do you believe that this is fair?

Transgender man on podium

So far, no one seems to have had a clear solution. I do!

Here’s the definition of GID. “Gender identity disorders (GID) are disorders in which an individual exhibits marked and persistent identification with the opposite sex.” It’s real, but the current solution is destroying women’s sports. The acronym GID is rarely used in daily conversation, but it should be.

So, I am proposing some new sports divisions. We now have men’s divisions, women’s divisions, and special divisions for athletes with disabilities, including the Special Olympics. How about a new category of sport called GID. With GID Divisions.

Transgender “women” wishing to compete with their peers could compete in GIDD basketball, GIDD hockey, GIDD shot-put, etc., and of course the GIDD Olympics.

And for those of us not directly involved in the psychiatric or medical profession, rather than having to keep track of who knows how many genders, why couldn’t we simply refer to any individual with a Gender Identity Disorder, as having GID? I had an extremely intelligent and rational friend who had GID, and I’m positive he would agree.

I think it’s an acronym whose time has come!

Next few blogs I’ll be reporting on the Essentials of Freedom Conference in Red Deer. There were many, many well informed and thoughtful speakers. It’s a conference which is absolutely essential for those interested in the welfare of their children and grandchildren. We’ll let you know when the next one is coming along.

Sick or Depraved, or both?

dwr.jpgThe Progressivist Left has an agenda to sexually confuse your children. I know that a lot of people can’t or won’t believe it, but it’s true. Here’s a link to an article about how the LGBT radical’s agenda is playing out in Vermont. Schoolchildren who can’t get an aspirin without their parent’s permission, are going to be enabled to have gender reassignment surgery at taxpayer’s expense, without their parent’s permission.

This sort of thing is happening around the Western world. In England it was found that one school was grooming 17 pupils, mostly autistic, to become transgender. It’s well-established that autistic children are easily influenced, in this case to believe that they were born in the wrong body.

images.jpg(You may have heard of Greta Thunberg, the autistic Swedish girl who became obsessed with the notion that human caused climate change is about to doom us all. Exploitive adults, sadly including the Pope, are using this psychologically ill child to advance their dream of world government. And yes, many of the leaders of climate alarmism religion openly admit that a world government is their dream.)

When, thankfully for Alberta’s children, the NDP was ousted from power in April, they were in the process of bringing in a law that would outlaw “conversion therapy”, for adults. That is, adults experiencing same-sex attraction or gender identity disorder, and who wished to become straight, would not be allowed, by law, to seek treatment or counselling.

(Those who say that therapy never works are either ignorant, or lying, because I have listened to lectures and spoken personally with those who have changed. And I have also spoken on numerous occasions with a friend who attempted to transition from male to female through hormone treatments, and, by having his genitals removed and a cosmetic vagina fashioned, and he told me later that it was been a huge mistake.)

At the same time that the NDP was planning to forbid adults from choosing treatment for same-sex attraction or transgender-ism, they were busily enforcing their law that enabled activist or addled teachers to assist little children as young as 5 to begin transitioning, while they were at school. Ignoring the difference in maturity between a 7-year-old and a 17-year-old, their law also stipulated that parents could not be notified without the child’s permission.

RedDeerNorthDonate.jpgThere are many words for this kind of behavior, including sick, depraved, exploitative, abusive, and even diabolical. Ordinary citizens need to become informed, and then, vocal. Here in Alberta, the election of a putatively conservative government is not going to make the Radicals go away. They are already relentlessly attacking the new Education Minister, Adrian LaGrange. (Pictured) She needs your written and vocal support.

Alberta Election: CULTURE

dwr.jpgThere are two fundamental issues that Albertans must consider before Alberta’s election on April 16; issues about which we must think carefully, courageously, and completely. And when we’re thinking, we always need to start with facts, then think, then allow emotion, and then, speak, or act/vote.

The first issue is; where are Alberta (and Western Society) headed, culturally speaking?

The second is; where is Alberta headed economically?

This week; CULTURE. A few months ago we heard that 17 young people, in one school, in England, most of them autistic, were being groomed to change their gender, which could ultimately include having their genitals surgically altered. Parents were not to be told. Follow this link. Many child psychologists and researchers say that it’s child abuse, and it’s currently legal in Alberta.

In our radicalized sexual identity culture, some activist clinicians are recommending that little girls as young as 3 should be assisted to transition if they think they’d like to be boys. Parents are to be excluded from the discussions. Some clinicians are recommending that girls as young as 13 be allowed to have mastectomies. Parents are not allowed to interfere.

In Nova Scotia, children as young as 12 are being asked loaded questions, and then are being “scored” for their trans-phobia. The purpose is to teach children, and I quote: “… what thoughts and opinions are acceptable for them to think.”

Get that? Radicals in the LGBT movement are teaching kids what they are to think. This is right out of the Marxist/Fascist playbook and we tried those in the 20th century with catastrophic results.

Under Alberta’s NDP, our children are not safe from this. Dr. Kris Wells, a friend of Alberta’s Education Minister, David Eggen, oversaw the linking of pornographic sites to the taxpayer funded, Gay Straight Alliance, or GSA website. When confronted, Wells took them down, but then he attacked the mother who had found and objected to them, calling her “hysterical” and “sensationalist”.

Obviously, Kris Wells should never have a role in the education of our children. But last year, the Alberta Teachers Association, or ATA had Dr. Wells as their keynote speaker at a conference. Albertans should no longer trust the ATA, which is an all in supporter of the NDP. And Wells was never fired or reprimanded by Alberta Education, or the NDP.

In fact, now having legislated that parents must be excluded from their young children’s struggle with Gender Identity Disorder, the NDP is considering legislation that would bar adult gay and transsexual individuals from seeking transition therapy.

If someone tells you that transition therapy never works, they are either ignorant, or lying. I have met and talked to several people who have changed their orientation through psychological or spiritual counseling. And I had a transsexual friend who told me that his “gender reassignment therapy” was a terrible mistake, because it changed nothing.

So think about it. In Alberta, if a child wants to become a member of the opposite sex, the government will assist them, and, by law, exclude parents from even knowing what is going on. On the other hand, if an adult wishes to have transition therapy, it is almost certain that another NDP government will outlaw it.

Contrary to national, international, and even provincial law, the NDP government seems to believe that it is they who have a prior right to decide on the education of children, and, a right to override personal decisions made by adults. That’s TOTALITARIANISM.

So this Alberta election is extremely critical for the cultural and social health of the province, and for the safety of your children and grandchildren. If you are an Albertan 18 or over, you have a moral obligation to become informed, and to then get out and vote.

Next blog will be about Alberta’s declining FINANCES and the vanished Alberta advantage.

The End of Sports?

dwrJust when I am absolutely convinced that transgender radicals have plumbed the deepest depths of absurdity, they prove me wrong. We’re now told, as Barbara Kay notes in the linked article, that rather than being observed at birth, a baby’s gender is “assigned” at birth.

I suppose that this means that even if a baby arrives with the appendage that would traditionally indicate that “It’s a boy!”, nowadays it ain’t necessarily so. A parent – or maybe we’ll need a specialist in these things – can with a straight face, declare the child is indeed a boy, but, just as plausibly that it’s a girl, or neither, or perhaps one of many dozens of other modern permutations and combinations of gender. Like maybe: “It’s a ZIE!”

Now I think a problem may arise when the child reaches 10 or 12 or 14 years old and decides otherwise. But of course, that’s 10 or 12 or 14 years down the road from now, and the gender bending, leading edge Progressivists will have moved on to the latest trendy but even more idiotic – is it possible? – fad. Or, dare we hope, we will soon reach the actual bottom and begin the long upward swim towards sanity.

indexBarbara KayIn any case, you should read the excellent accompanying article (link) by Barbara Kay which goes into some of the problems that are inevitably cropping up in sports. You know, when the 6 foot 5, 300 pound, trans “woman” competing against actual women in the shot put, wins every time. Bad news for bookmakers.

https://www.thepostmillennial.com/canadian-sports-experts-embrace-misogynist-practices-to-please-trans-activists%EF%BB%BF/

We evolved, or were created, or were created by evolution, to mate heterosexually. That’s not a religious or philosophical statement, it’s just a scientific observation.The craziness needs to end, and it will only end and help begin when we become brave and honest enough to admit that Gender Identity Disorder, and Transgenderism, and same sex attractions are disorders. The truth always sets you free; lies, even lies meant to be kind never do.

Will this cold never end!

It’s Barack Obama, or Reality

dwr.jpgFor those who like to be informed, there are a couple of really big events coming up in the next few weeks in Calgary. The first event is the Things that Matter Conference, February 8 and 9 at the Best Western, Port O’ Call. Sponsored by the Essentials of Freedom organization, it has an incredible lineup of speakers. Here are a few.

Dr. John Robson is probably Canada’s leading expert on the freedoms that have been won in the 800 years since Magna Carta, and how quickly we are losing them in Canada.

Dr. Jack Mintz of the University of Calgary is one of the world’s most respected economists, who recognizes that, financially at least, Alberta would be better off as an independent country.

Dr. Ted Morton is Canada’s leading expert on the chaotic, and grossly unfair equalization formula, and how it must be fixed.

John Carpay LL.B. is founder of the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedom, JCCF, and Canada’s strongest fighter against the erosion of our fundamental freedoms, by governments at the provincial and federal level.

Dr. Patrick Moore was a co-founder of Greenpeace. In 1971 Moore’s co-founder, Bob Hunter wrote, “Moore was quickly accepted into the inner circle (of Greenpeace) on the basis of his scientific background, his reputation [as an environmental activist], and his ability to inject practical, no-nonsense insights into the discussions.”

I’m a big believer in no-nonsense. But now, Dr. Moore repudiates Greenpeace for its utter abandonment of science in favour of political advocacy. Sadly, Greenpeace has degenerated into an organization mostly known for its stunts.

I took the trouble to look up their Board of Directors, and I couldn’t find one scientist among them. Almost every board member of this bloated, $300 million a year, emotion peddling business, has a social activist background.

We’ve been to The Essentials of Freedom Conference since its inception and it’s gotten better every year. This year will be the best yet, and there will be guests from the US and all areas of Canada, from Québec to Vancouver Island.

The other upcoming big event is Barack Obama on March 5. Obama was a community organizer who became President of the United States from January 2009 to January 2017.

During his time as President, Barack Obama doubled the US national debt; ignored the rise of ISIS in the Middle East leading to one of the biggest humanitarian crises so far in the 21st century; foolishly declared that the Cold War was over and stood by while Vladimir Putin rolled his tanks over his neighbours; and, by constantly and prematurely injecting himself into domestic racial incidents, set back American race relations by two generations.

Meritha and I are already registered for one of these events, and you can guess which one it is. Hope to see you there!

Hyenas under the Rainbow Flag

DW Blog

I’ve been to Africa several times, and I can tell you that hyenas are not well liked. Hyenas appear cowardly, and they have a weird laughing yap that sounds a bit creepy, and they are reputed to grab children. Probably rare, but it has happened.

Which brings me to the title of this blog. I’ll wager that most people in the LGBT community support the rainbow flag. I’ll also wager that most of them simply want to live their lives as good citizens of their city and country, and to allow others live their lives as they see fit. At least that’s been my observation over nearly 60 years.

In 1963, my very naïve, 19-year-old self headed off to the big city, where I soon found a job. One of the fellows I worked with was homosexual. (It took me about four months to figure it out because I honestly could not believe that a guy could not like girls.  And “gay” had nothing to do with homosexuality.)

We remained friends, although 1963 was six years before the gay rights movement even got started, and having a homosexual friend was not always comfortable. “Beating up Fags” was Saturday night entertainment for some, maybe the cops would pitch in to to help! Friends of homosexuals were often viewed with suspicion and contempt.

I thought then, and I still do, that the way people in the homosexual/transgender community were treated, was appalling. We’ve made a lot of progress since then, and most people treat LGBT individuals with decency and respect. Governments recognize their rights as citizens and taxpayers. But as is usually the case with human societies, we’ve gone almost directly from one ditch, way past the centre, through the other ditch, and we’re now far into the swamp, and are sinking fast.

HyenasBecause there is a cohort, a pack embedded within the LGBT community, that used to be known as “recruiters”. I call them hyenas. Those are people who watch for children with social vulnerabilities; awkwardness, shyness around the opposite sex or obvious gender confusion, and they try to guide or entice them into the LGBT lifestyle.

Last week I blogged about the naked hypocrisy of the Progressivist politicians and media attack on civil rights lawyer, John Carpay, for mentioning the Nazi swastika, and the Communist hammer and sickle, and the Rainbow Flag, in the same sentence.

John CarpayMr. Carpay had every reason to do so. Contrary to national and international law, this totalitarian minded pack of hyenas has legislated that parents cannot be informed if their children are experiencing gender confusion. Not even 5, 6, 7, and 8 year olds! Coming between children and their parents to create the society they wanted was a standard Nazis and Communist tactic. John Carpay was absolutely right to make his comparison.

Yapping and circling, Alberta’s Minister of Education and his advisors, apparently with the approval of the premier, are hell-bent on grabbing and destroying as many children’s lives as possible. And far too many complicit or lazy journalists yap their approval.

That’s what last week’s blog was about, and if you haven’t read it or passed it along, here’s the link. I have a great-grandson who within two or three years will be in our “education” system, so this issue is very personal to me.

But it’s also happening now, or will happen, wherever you live; in your province, and your state, and your country. That sounds alarmist, but it’s true.

Even as I was working on this blog, there came the sickening news that 17 young people, in one school, in England, most of them autistic, are being groomed to cosmetically change their gender. Follow this link. What these hyenas are doing has no basis in science. In fact, credible child psychologists and researchers say that it’s child abuse. Do ya think?

I have a transgender friend who, even as middle-aged man had his genitals removed and a vagina fashioned. A couple of years later he told me that it had been a terrible mistake and had changed nothing. Studies show that that is the reality for a majority of these permanently mutilated people. Sadly, many commit suicide. And still, the hyenas circle and yap.

It’s my fervent hope that someday these abusers will be hauled into court by their victims, there to be bankrupted by a massive class action lawsuit. Better yet, that someday they are charged with child abuse and sent to prison.

And if that doesn’t happen, let me pass along something that Jesus predicted about the fate of those who destroy children’s lives, and I quote: “It is inevitable that stumbling blocks will come, but woe to the one through whom they come! It would be better for him to have a millstone hung around his neck and to be thrown into the sea than to cause one of these little ones to stumble.”
