Ban On Child Gender-Transitions in TN and KY Will STAND!

Very good news! I can’t see this Supreme Court overturning the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals decision in this case. Other states should be emboldened to follow suit.

Brazil: Journalist Ordered To Pay Damages For ‘Misgendering’

A female journalist was convicted of causing “moral damage” to a male influencer who claims to be a woman.

Left: Rebecca Gaia. Right: Madeleine Lacsko

A Brazilian journalist, Madeleine Lacsko, was convicted of  causing “moral damage” to a trans-identified male influencer, who adopted the name Rebecca Gaia. Ms. Lacsko was found guilty of “transphobia” over “misgendering” for addressing Gaia using the word “cara,” as “cara” means “dear” but also “guy” (a man). The journalist was told to delete her tweets and pay three thousand reais (over $500) to the influencer.

. . . the journalist’s “conduct” – using the word “cara” as a masculine form, was “enough to conclude that there was grave violation of the [influencer’s] personality, resulting in their humiliation in front of other users on social media.”

“The case that happened to me is important for the freedom of expression of women in the public sphere, especially in discussions about gender. I was judicially sanctioned without even having entered into the discussion, simply because I used a vocative that was misunderstood by the people attacking me,” Ms Lacsko continued.

Lacsko has been a journalist for 27 years and also works as a “digital and social reputation risk management consultant.” She is a columnist for the news outlet UOL, a speaker, an author and has focused on the topic of lifelong learning for senior executives, Digital Citizenship and human rights while working as a consultant for UNICEF Angola and as an advisor to Brazil’s Supreme Court.

A Mental Disorder

It used to be called Gender Identity Disorder (GID). But that was changed because it sounded too “stigmatizing.” For that reason, and that reason alone, it is now called Gender Dysphoria.

In a recent federal court case, Neese v. Becerra, two Medical Doctors, Neese & Hurly, were charged with discrimination under Title IX and The Affordable Care Act. The doctors, (i.e. the plaintiffs,) perform care consistent with their ethical beliefs which sometimes keeps them from “treating” patients in accordance with a patient’s “gender identity.”

Plaintiffs, via legal counsel, allege:

Dr. Hurly "recognizes that some biological men may identify as women (and vice versa)." In his practice, Dr. Hurly "has encountered situations … when he must insist that a patient acknowledge his biological sex rather than the gender identity that he asserts." Plaintiffs provide an example: Dr. Hurly "once diagnosed a biological male patient with prostate cancer, but the patient refused to accept Dr. Hurly's diagnosis because he identified as a woman and insisted that he could not have a prostate." Dr. Hurly "explain[ed] to this patient that he was indeed a biological man with a prostate, and that he needed to seek urgent medical treatment for his prostate cancer." Plaintiffs claim, "Dr. Hurly has treated transgender patients in the past, and he expects to continue doing so in the future." They allege: "Dr. Hurly is likely to encounter transgender patients who will deny or dispute their need for health care that corresponds to their biological sex, and he intends to provide care to these individuals in a manner consistent with his ethical beliefs."

Those who deny reality are delusional. They have a mental disorder. And need to be lovingly treated, not affirmed.

The Federal Judge ruled for the plaintiffs. An excerpt of the ruling by Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk (N. D. Tex.) which came down last Friday, (11.11.22), is found here:
