‘Adults can barely make sense of this nonsense, let alone children’
Reagan Reese on November 23, 2022
- San Francisco’s Guaranteed Income For Transgender People gives applicants 130 gender, sexual orientation and pronoun options to identify as.
- Individuals can select “boi,” “sistergirls” and “butch” as possible gender identities. Also in the line-up is the option “genderfu@!”[f-bomb delted for editorial purposes].
- “The lists merely pander to the community of people who identify under the ‘transgender’ umbrella. The lists serve no other purpose – in fact, a person might apply under one identity label and declare a different one by the time the application is processed. Objectively, it’s all meaningless,” Mary Hasson, a fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, which focuses on promoting the Catholic vision while responding to the challenges of gender ideology, told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
There are more than 130 gender, sexual orientation and pronoun options listed on the San Francisco’s Guaranteed Income For Transgender People (GIFT) program application.
Under the GIFT program, 55 San Francisco residents who earn less than $600 monthly and identify as one of the many genders listed will receive $1,200 per month. Aside from woman and man, some of the genders eligible for the money include “genderfu@!,” “boi,” “sistergirls” and “butch.”
“The lengthy list of possible ‘gender identity’ and sexual orientation labels is an apparent attempt to be ‘inclusive,’” Mary Hasson, a fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, which focuses on promoting the Catholic vision while responding to the challenges of gender ideology, told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “But it really exposes the meaninglessness of these labels – and of the concept of ‘gender identity’ itself. ‘Gender identity’ means nothing more than one’s ‘perception of self’ or identity feelings – it can be fluid, and can change at any time. Because ‘gender identity’ is a self-defined identity label, the list is actually under-inclusive – there’s an infinite list of possible labels, because each person can self-describe in novel terms, and invent their own meaning for the chosen label.”
Listed on the GIFT application as a gender identity, “genderfu@!” is also considered a gender expression term, accordingto the University of Rhode Island Gender and Sexuality Center. “Gender__” is defined as an “expression that is intentionally fluid” and gives “no clear designation in terms of perceived gender.”
The gender identity “sistergirl” coincides with “brotherboy,” two terms used by indigenous Australians to describe transgender individuals, the TransHub, a resource platform for the transgender community, stated. “Sistergirl” is defined as a “gender diverse people that have a female spirit and take on female roles within the community” and “brotherboy” is defined as a “gender diverse people that have a male spirit and take on male roles within the community.”
The term “boi” is for queer people of color usually describing “queer women who present with masculinity,” according to the Trans Student Educational Resources, a youth run organization focused on educating the transgender community. “Butch” is an identity related to masculinity, and while it is “a distinct gender identity and/or expression” the term “does not necessarily imply that one also identifies as a woman or not.”
“This pronoun insanity is out of control,” Jaimee Michell, the founder of Gays Against Groomers, told the DCNF. “What’s most disturbing about it is the increasing trend of asking children what theirs are. Adults can barely make sense of this nonsense, let alone children. It’s confusing and not based in reality. There are only 2 genders — male and female.”
Other options include “FtX” which describes a person who is “assigned as a female at birth and identifies as nonbinary” and “MtX” which is a “person assigned as a male at birth and identifies as nonbinary,” according to PFLAG, a group focused on supporting LGBTQ people and their families.
“Aggressive” or “AG” is used by African-American and “Latin@” people for “masculine of center lesbians,” according to the University of Florida’s multicultural and diversity affairs. People who identify as “aggressive” also can use the term “stud” which is listed on the program application.
Applicants can also chose to identify as “androgynous” which means an individual has both male and female characteristics but is neither neither specifically feminine nor masculine, the Merriam-Webster dictionary stated. “Neutrois,” another option available, is for individuals who feel “genderless” or “neutral” about their gender, LGBTQ Nation, an LGBTQ focused news outlet, wrote.
If applicants would rather not specify their gender identity, the application gives the options “questioning,” “I don’t use labels” and “declined.”
The program application also allows individuals to choose their sexual orientation; “faggot,” “gay,” “dyke” and “lesbian” are listed as options for applications. “Same-gender loving” is listed and is a term of “lesbian, gay or bisexual to express attraction to and love of people of the same gender” but not necessarily the same sex, according to the Center for Inclusion and Social Change at the University of Colorado – Boulder.
“Skoliosexual” is considered a sexual orientation and is defined as those who “only feel attraction toward people who are nonbinary,” the Medical News Today stated. “Aromantic” refers to a person who has little or no romantic attraction to others and is usually “satisfied with friendships and other non-romantic relationships,” according to Bloomington Pride, a group devoted to putting on LGBTQ events.
Several pronoun options are also available including “zie/zim/zers,” “xe/xem/xyrs” and “fae/faer/faers,” according to the program application.
“The lists merely pander to the community of people who identify under the ‘transgender’ umbrella,” Hasson told the DCNF. “The lists serve no other purpose – in fact, a person might apply under one identity label and declare a different one by the time the application is processed. Objectively, it’s all meaningless.”
GIFT organizers did not immediately respond to the DCNF’s request for comment.

(LifeSiteNews) — The harms of transgenderism and gender ideology can no longer be ignored.
LifeSiteNews has published four separate reports on the harms of transgenderism, sourcing material from credible medical experts, social scientists, and “detransitioners.” The latter are gender-confused individuals who began to take drugs and/or underwent surgery to present as the opposite sex but have since stopped and regret their actions.
This series is meant to be a resource for confronting LGBT activists and helping gender-confused individuals realize the harms of chemical and surgical mutilations. This article is a summary of the findings, but LifeSiteNews will continue to expose the harms of transgenderism.
5 men and women harmed by ‘trans’ surgeries share their stories of regret, anxiety and depression
The first article featured 5 individuals who have been harmed by chemical and genital mutilation. The individuals were lied to by health care professionals into injecting themselves with testosterone and removing healthy organs. They were falsely that told they could change their gender, which is impossible.
Other individuals have come out and shared their own experiences of being lied to by medical professionals.
At least partially as a result of these stories, legislation in places such as Tennessee has sought to ban or limit these procedures.
Transgender drugs and surgeries are creating a public health crisis: medical experts
The second article focused on statements from American medical experts who studied this issue and concluded that “transitioning” of kids amounts to “child abuse” and is creating a “public health issue.
Dr. Quentin Van Meter, president of the American College of Pediatricians (not to be confused with the American Academy of Pediatricians), called puberty blockers “child abuse.”
“If you are interrupting [physical maturation] with clearly the intent of never having it go the direction that nature intended, with biological males ending up as adult males and biological females ending up as adult females, if you interrupt that, you are basically setting up a disease state,” Van Meter told LifeSiteNews in 2021. “And then on top of that, the purpose is clearly in the vast majority of kids that get on puberty blockers, they will not be allowed to go through their own natural puberty. They will be held back and then given cross-sex hormones.”
The linked article includes further expert commentary on the issue.
European medical officials warn against transgender drugs and surgeries for kids
It is not just American medical experts who have raised serious concerns about transgender drugs and surgeries for kids. Medical organizations and government entities also have concerns. European medical officials have raised concerns about transgender drugs and surgeries, in contradiction to a push by LGBT activists to groom kids to take puberty blockers and permanently sever their reproductive ability through transgender surgeries.
The third article explores several entities which have warned about the chemical and genital mutilation of kids. For example, the British National Institute for Health and Care Excellence concluded that studies cited to justify chemical interventions on gender-confused kids were not trustworthy but were still used to promote puberty blocking drugs. “The quality of evidence for these outcomes was assessed as very low certainty using [a] modified [evidence review].”
The French Academy of Medicine released a statement in 2022 that concluded that children should not be given puberty blockers.
“Great medical caution must be taken in children and adolescents, given the vulnerability, particularly psychological, of this population and the many undesirable effects, and even serious complications, that some of the available therapies can cause,” the medical group wrote. “In this respect, it is important to recall the recent decision (May 2021) of the Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm to ban the use of hormone blockers.”
LGBT identification is largely driven by social media influence and peer pressure
Self-identification as homosexual, transgender, and other apparent sexualities such as “gender fluid” are largely driven by social media, mainstream media, and peer influence, according to experts. The fourth article in this series explored that topic.
For example, Brown University’s Lisa Littman published a famous study on Rapid Onset Gender Dysphoria, which linked increased identification of transgenderism to social pressures.
Littman’s research drew on other recognized studies on social and psychological disorders that had affirmed how peer groups can lead to others identifying with the same issues. “Peer contagion has been associated with depressive symptoms, disordered eating, aggression, bullying, and drug use,” she noted. However, by touching on such a politically sensitive topic, the former professor faced significant backlash.
Mental illness and LGBT identification also go hand-in-hand.
There is a strong link between mental illness and liberal political beliefs and LGBT identification, Birbeck College political scientist Eric Kaufmann concluded in a 2022 study. Kaufmann, who has degrees in political science and economics, released a report for the Center for the Study of Partisanship and Ideology [CSPI] that found bisexual sexual behavior did not rise at the same rate as identification as bisexual.
He argued this meant that peer pressure led to people saying they had a disordered sexual inclination without acting on it. “If this was about people feeling able to come out, then we should have seen these two trends rise together,” he told The College Fix. “What we find instead is that identity is rising much faster than behavior, indicating that people with occasional rather than sustained feelings of attraction to the opposite sex are increasingly identifying as LGBT.”
NHS Warning: Many
In an about face from the popular view that kids should identify as the gender they most feel like, the UK’s National Health Service is now warning that such feelings “may be a transient phase, particularly for pre-pubertal children.”
The NHS now cites “scarce and inconclusive evidence to support clinical decision making…and a lack of evidence to support families in making informed decisions about interventions that may have life-long consequences.”
The agency further maintains that healthcare providers shouldn’t be in a hurry to push children to identify as a different gender, contrary to the current concensus among many that children should be encouraged to integrate their new “identification” into every aspect of their life, including name and pronoun chamges.
Doctors and health care professionals are finally seeing the downside in juvenile “transitionsing”, a term used to describe a person who wants to change their gender through cosmetic, chemical and surgical means. Already, gender “clinics” have sprung up by the hundreds in the U.S with Planned Parenthood routinely prescribing hormone therapy to minors.
Many non-milinials are aware of the concept “tomboy”, which described a phase that young girls would go through when they wanted to engage in rough and tumble activities traditionally observed by boys. In the past, feminist applauded such behavior by females, maintaining that girls should not be limited. Now, however, the thrust in education is to coax students to consider any behaviors which are not traditional to their gender, to be possible proof that they belong in a different gender.
What was once a “phase” became dubbed and “identity” by those in favor of gender ideology, the belief that gender is chosen rather than biological. Many schools support gender ideology in the U.S. and the U.K.
“Just consider all of the young children, all of the young people whose lives have been irreversibly ruined by the NHS, like other health authorities across the western world, not taking this simple, sensible, adult and pragmatic approach years ago,” Douglas Murray, author ofThe Madness of Crowds: Gender Race and Identity, lamented. Read the full story here.
Sixty-five percent of participants in a survey ‘believe the transgender movement has gone too far by encouraging underage minors to use drugs and surgery to transition to the opposite sex.’
LANSING, Michigan (LifeSiteNews) — A proposed amendment to the Michigan Constitution to enshrine a state-level right to abortion would also create a right to sterilize and potentially even transition minors without their parents’ knowledge or consent, warn legal experts and religious authorities in the Great Lakes State.
Michigan Proposal 3, the so-called Right to Reproductive Freedom Initiative (RRFI), would enshrine a state constitutional right to “reproductive freedom,” defined as the “right to make and effectuate decisions about all matters relating to pregnancy, including but not limited to prenatal care, childbirth, postpartum care, contraception, sterilization, abortion care, miscarriage management, and infertility care.”
When the U.S. Supreme Court recognized in June’s Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision that the U.S. Constitution “makes no reference to abortion, and no such right is implicitly protected by any constitutional provision,” it restored states’ ability to decide their own abortion laws. Pro-abortion activists hope to prevent state legislatures from doing so by establishing new “rights” to abortion in state constitutions.
Michigan is one of three states voting on such initiatives next month (other states are working to establish the opposite with pro-life initiatives). According to an analysis by the Great Lakes Justice Center (GLJC), as well as an article by former Michigan Solicitor General John Bursch published by the Michigan Catholic Conference, the implications reach far beyond the expansive text.
“Proposal 3 goes much farther than merely codifying Roe v. Wade, invalidating more than two dozen Michigan pro-life laws and authorizing minors to obtain abortions without a parent’s consent or even notice,” Bursch writes. And “because Proposal 3 grants this right to ‘every individual,’ without age limits, that means the proposal, on its face, authorizes a minor to obtain a sterilization without parental consent or even notice, such as when a minor desires to change his or her gender.”
GLJC notes that because the proposal does not define any of its terms, it “guarantees many new rights will be ‘created’ by activist courts […] [w]hat about gender-reassignment surgeries (i.e., the sterilization of men and women) and related medical care? The possibilities are unconstrained and endless.”
The group further warns that the amendment’s drafters “have deliberately crafted language which subverts and narrows” the “strict scrutiny analysis” test by which conflicts between statutes and constitutional language are adjudicated, “in a manner that will produce manifestly unjust results.”
“Under normal circumstances, a law prohibiting sexual conduct between adults and minors, for example, would be characterized as advancing the state’s interest in protecting minors from sexual exploitation and abuse by predatory adults,” GLJC explains. But the amendment declares that a state interest is only “compelling” if “it is for the limited purpose of protecting the health of an individual seeking care, consistent with accepted clinical standards of practice and evidence-based medicine, and does not infringe on that individual’s autonomous decision-making.”
This, GLJC warns, means that “all other legitimate and well-recognized compelling state interests such as the protection of minors, the protection of parental rights, as well as many others, will never be adequate to uphold a law if challenged under the RRFI.”
Proposal 3 and the other state abortion referendums will be among the first major tests of how public opinion will react to America’s new abortion status quo. A proposed amendment to clarify the Kansas Constitution does not protect abortion failed at the ballot in August, thanks in part to pervasive misinformation about the impact pro-life laws have on women facing medical emergencies.
Properly gauging public opinion on abortion has long been hobbled by inconsistently or inaccurately-framed poll questions, popular misconceptions about what abortion laws and rulings have and have not done, and discrepancies between what voters think of the issue and how they prioritize it. Ultimately, a more accurate read of the issue will likely not become clear until voters’ reactions to newly-enforced state laws start being reflected in elections.

“That’s the population we have been most focused on in terms of vaccination,” said Dr. Rochelle Walensky, Director for the CDC.
“We’re trying to contain this disease in the people who have it right now. This is a moment, an opportunity for us to do so because it is in a relatively close knit community right now. If this gets out of that community, people have totally lost the capacity to contain this,”Dr. Ward Carpenter, co-director of health services at the Los Angeles LGBT Center
Wisconsin becomes the Latest State to Introduce Pro-Israel, Anti-BDS Legislation
Paul Miller/JNS.org : Oct 11, 2017 : JNS.org
“Today, StandWithUs is very proud to see Wisconsin engage in a bipartisan rejection of anti-Semitism and discrimination against Israel.” -Peggy Shapiro, Midwest director of StandWithUs

In recent years, more than 20 U.S. states have passed legislation condemning BDS or prohibiting government business with entities that boycott Israel, with additional states—including Wisconsin—expected to follow before the end of the year.
Released by State Sen. Leah Vukmir and State Rep. Dale Kooyenga, the bill is currently being circulated among both chambers for co-sponsors. The measure states that it “prohibits any state agency or other body in state government and any local governmental unit, including a special purpose district, from adopting a rule, ordinance, policy, or procedure that involves the state agency or local governmental unit in a boycott of Israel or a person doing business in Israel or in a territory under Israeli jurisdiction.”
It also “requires contracts for materials, supplies, equipment, and services between state purchasing agents and nongovernmental entities to include a provision that the nongovernmental entity is not currently participating, or will not for the duration of the contract participate, in a prohibited boycott.”
Vukmir said in a statement, “Boycotts of Israel must be fought because they do not just attack the Jewish state. This propaganda campaign is also the basis for newly emboldened and destructive anti-Semitic attitudes.”
“Israel stands as the only democracy in the Middle East, offering a voice not only to the Jewish citizens of Israel, but to all citizens of Israel regardless of their age, race, sex or religion,” Kooyenga said. “This bill demonstrates that Wisconsin is serious about standing with Israel, as our republic has since Israel’s founding nearly 70 years ago.”
Peggy Shapiro, Midwest director of the pro-Israel education organization StandWithUs, recalled that she “met with Wisconsin Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisc almost two years ago, and she was adamant about protecting Israel—Wisconsin’s relationship, and making sure…taxpayers were not complicit in acts of anti-Semitism.”
“Today, StandWithUs is very proud to see Wisconsin engage in a bipartisan rejection of anti-Semitism and discrimination against Israel,” Shapiro told the Haym Salomon Center.
Joining StandWithUs and other groups to advance anti-BDS legislation in Wisconsin is the self-described largest pro-Israel organization in the country, Christians United for Israel (CUFI). With the backing of its nearly 3.6 million members, the group’s lobbying arm, the CUFI Action Fund, said it played a significant role in bringing this issue to the forefront.
“CUFI members across the country are fed up with BDS and excited to act to stop it,” said CUFI board member David Brog. “In Wisconsin, our local leaders were able to join with the Jewish community to make a powerful pro-Israel team and secure the introduction of a strong anti-BDS bill. We look forward to working with our partners to ensure that this bill becomes law and Wisconsin becomes the 23rd state to stand up to BDS.”
The BDS campaign against the Jewish state began in 2005, claiming to be a form of “non-violent” resistance against Israel’s so-called “settler colonialism, apartheid and occupation over the Palestinian people.”
A study conducted last year by the anti-Semitism watchdog group AMCHA Initiative examined more than 100 public and private colleges and universities from January to June of 2016. It found that 287 anti-Semitic incidents occurred at 64 schools, compared to 198 occurrences during the same period the previous year, reflecting a 45-percent increase.
The study revealed a rapidly growing correlation between anti-Semitism and BDS activism.

“Given the global public health implications, there is an urgency to make all COVID-19 trial data public, particularly regarding serious adverse events, without any further delay,: the editor of the British Medical Journal has warned.
A new paper by British Medical Journal (BMJ) Editor Dr. Peter Doshi and colleagues has analysed data from the Pfizer and Moderna COVID vaccine trials and found that the vaccines are more likely to put you in hospital with a serious adverse event than keep you out by protecting you from COVID.
