Parents Clinging To A Self-Affirming Delusion

Helen Joyce thinks she has landed upon a crucial motivation for some of those caught within the gender identity matrix.

And how those few often paralyze entire organizations.

…“A lot of people have done what is the worst thing you could do, which is to harm their children irrevocably, because of it. Those people will have to believe that they did the right thing for the rest of their lives, for their own sanity, and for their own self-respect. So they’ll still be fighting, and each one of those people destroys entire organizations and entire friendship groups.

“Like, I’ve lost count of the number of times that somebody has said to me of a specific organization that has been turned upside down on this, “Oh, the deputy director has a trans child.” Or, oh, the journalist on that paper who does special investigations has a trans child. Or whatever. The entire organization gets paralyzed by that one person. And it may not even be widely known at that organization that they have a trans child. But it will come out, people will have sort of said quietly, and now you can’t talk truth in front of that person, and you know you can’t, because what you’re saying is: “You as a parent have done a truly, like, a human rights abuse level of awful thing to your own child that can not be fixed.

“There are specific individuals who are actively against women’s rights here and it is not known why they are, but I happen to know through the back channels that it is because they’ve transed their child.

“So those people will do anything for the entire rest of their lives to destroy me and people like me because people like me are standing in reproach to them. I don’t want to be, I’m not talking directly to them, and I don’t spend my time bitching to them.

“But the fact is that just simply by saying we will never accept natural males in women’s spaces, well it is their son that we’re talking about. And they’ve told their son that he can get himself sterilized and destroy his own basic sexual function and women will accept him as a woman. And if we don’t, there’s no way back for them and that child.

“They’ve sold their child a bill of goods that they can’t deliver on.

These are not people who want to radically restructure society; the Neo-Marxists, Neo-Maoists, the Critical Theorists, the hard core ideologues who want to reduce ‘cisheteropatriarchy’ and capitalism to the dustbin of history.

These are parents who can’t possibly admit what they have done.


Johann Sebastian Bach (RIP), July 28, 1750

Robert Shaw1 Shaw founded the Robert Shaw Chorale in 1948, one of the most renowned professional choral groups in the United States. The group was active until 1967 and made numerous recordings during its existence.

In addition to his work with the Chorale, Shaw was also a noted symphony conductor. He served as the music director of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra from 1967 to 1988. Under his leadership, the orchestra grew in both size and stature, earning numerous awards and accolades.

Shaw received many awards and honors throughout his career, including 14 Grammy Awards. He was also a recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors in 1991 and was awarded the National Medal of Arts in 1992.
suggested that Bach may “be the single greatest creative genius of the Western World” and that the B Minor Mass may be “his greatest achievement.” Although this piece employed the texts of the Ordinary Mass, it is, unlike others of the time, too massive for any actual worship service. Bach never heard it as a whole. But we can.

It is a musical, liturgical, and theological celebration of the life and worship of the whole church catholic, thus a gift to the world.

“Cadences are where they should be, order is linked with freedom, and an unusually gracious ebb and flow are part of Bach’s music. Eliot Gardiner says it chips away at toxicity, chastens, elates, and cleanses.”

For those with less time to wonder, here are a few shorter compositions, some of his most popular, slightly reimagined.

Soren Aldaco: Another Detransitioner Sues

Detransitioner files $1M lawsuit against doctors for botched mastectomy that left her ‘permanently disfigured’

Lawsuit says doctors ‘coerced’ Soren Aldaco into identifying as transgender and pushed her into a double mastectomy that left her permanently disfigured

Aldaco, who is autistic, said she was battling depression and anxiety as a teenager when she was hospitalized with a manic episode at 15. After a short meeting with a psychiatrist there, Aldaco said she was “coerced” into coming out as transgender. Two years later, Aldaco connected with Del Scott Perry, a nurse practitioner with Texas Health Physicians Group at a transgender support group. After sharing her mental health struggles and identity confusion with Perry, Aldaco said the nurse practitioner encouraged her to begin medically transitioning and wrote her prescriptions for “an outrageously large off-label dosage” of testosterone, the suit alleges.

At the age of 19, Aldaco underwent a double mastectomy at the Crane Clinic in Austin which left her with “horrible post-surgical complications” and found her “nipples literally peeling off of her chest,” according to the 29-page complaint. When she reached out to her surgeons over concerns that something was wrong, Aldaco says she was told that her complications were normal “despite sending graphic pictures of the pools of blood forming subcutaneously within her torso.”

See her story….

Sometimes the compassionate response is one which sets firm boundaries. At the end of the day you need to be able to discern between enabling and helping – that you giving me access to certain drugs – that you just giving me referrals to whomever I asked for didn’t actually help me heal – it affirmed me in my delusion.
