On Monday, it was revealed that health care company Kaiser Permanente held multiple Pediatric Gender Expression Care workshops over the summers with topics ranging from managing fear of changes, to outward expressions of gender identity.
The workshop, which was brought to light by evolutionary biological Colin Wright on Twitter, was held virtually over the summer with eight sessions out over June, July, and August. An email, obtained by Wright, outlined the eight week workshop series, stated that it “will provide a comfortable and safe environment for kids and their parents or guardians to explore social gender identity and learn ways to comfortably express themselves.”
The workshop was open to Kaiser Permanent members between the ages of 12-17 who identify as transgender or non-binary. Sessions were held separately from parents, with adolescents attending the first hour and parents attending the second hour. The final session, held on August 3, was held jointly.
The email includes a number of topics likely to be covered in the sessions, with the email noting that topics may be “modified to the individual needs of participants.”
These topics included: “setting goals for gender expression,” “Reflection and Reset -Validating Emotions, Grieving, Navigating Loss of Identity,” “Changing Bodies – Normalizing fear, what to expect and cope with fear of changes,” and “navigating self-expression.”
Kaiser Permanente runs the Northwest Gender Pathways Clinic as well as other gender-specified clinics across the country.
At Northwest Gender Pathways Clinic, specialist teams provide treatment including hormone therapy, counseling for gender-affirming healthcare, hair removal, pubertal suppressants, surgical evaluations and procedures, and speech therapy which they call “gender-affirming communication therapy.”
The clinic’s website links to the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH). It was recently revealed that an early draft of the group’s 8th edition of their Standards of Care lowered their minimum age recommendations for children to start receiving […]
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
