The proposed bill makes wrong assumptions, violates therapeutic standards, and contributes to further neglect. Above all, it does not tackle or scrutinize the highly contested gay-affirming and gender-affirming therapies. In doing so, the NZ youth is not being protected but one-sidedly handed over to the whims of the day, after which the book on the subject is closed. Continue reading The harm caused by a therapy ban in NZ, part 8 of 8: “Bad legislation”
The most harmful drawback of the proposed NZ legislation is that it will no longer be legitimate to talk to younger people in-depth about homosexuality. No more searching for answers, no more looking under the hood of the car or lifting the car up, only a ready-made identity to slip into, flags to wave, and parades to attend. Each therapist who is sincere, aims to create room for content, not to tackle society, but to help the client ask him/herself: what the hell am I doing?. Continue reading The harm caused by a therapy ban in NZ, part 7 of 8: “The new taboo is harmful”
The proposed legislation is not an ultimate solution for mental health care, it will become the ultimate problem. There are four backlash issues that inevitably must lead to professional condemnation of this fear-mongering. Can we already predict undesirable dramas stemming from this bill? Yes. And have they been taken into account? No. The Bill aims to induce a chilling effect on dissidence. To this end, the notion of thought crimes is introduced. More than 10.000 individuals in NZ have written a letter of protest. The professional mental health community is under siege. Continue reading The harm caused by a therapy ban in NZ, part 6 of 8: “The emergence of backlashes”
As a child in 1962, I saw a movie called “Toby Tyler, 10 weeks with a Circus”. I had saved three pennies in my piggy bank. I juggled them out and bought myself a seat. It was based on the book by James Otis Kaler (1880). Walt Disney made the movie and you can always trust Walt Disney. ‘Taken in by distant members of his family after being orphaned, Toby runs away to join a circus that had come to town’.
It blew my mind away. But can you get away with it in these days of animal-rights activists? Continue reading The harm caused by a therapy ban in NZ, part 5 of 8: “The myth of the monkey race”
A small fringe of radical transdelusion activists, stemming from the Harry Benjamin Association, is seizing control in New Zealand to crush resistance. In 2013, these Americans teamed up with the declining gay-lib activism in San Francisco and New York, the breeding grounds of political radicalization. We see them spreading deeply delusional worldviews on the Internet. Then they quietly ooze their way into the political arena where, after a brief slander campaign, the most illogical notions in the history of the human race are being carved into the stone of legislation, immutable and ever-lasting. They are overhauling all sane and logical thought in secular society. Their next move is the church. Continue reading The harm caused by a therapy ban in NZ, part 4 of 8: “How the Bill drugs thinking”
“We are doing the wrong thing”, says Dr. Paul McHugh, the founding father of affirming the transdelusion. Fifty years ago, the professor started medical experiments to turn fantasy into life, only to pull out the plug when all the scientific data finally came in, a decade later. He now opposes the movement he once started. It is growing way out of hand, he feels. Continue reading The harm caused by a therapy ban in NZ, part 3 of 8: “Transgender? We are doing the wrong thing”
The proposed New Zealand Bill demands respect for the lethal condition of delusional gender identity. It calls for five years of imprisonment for professionals who take any other stance. The transdelusion is a long and winding road of suicidal thoughts and attempts. Many patients narrowly escape death but a great number will die of the condition. Legislation is meant to terrorize people into obedience. What facts are being hidden from view to fool MP’s into acceptance? Continue reading The harm caused by a therapy ban in NZ, part 2 of 8: Transdelusion ideology kills young people
In August 2021, a Labour Party member of New Zealand’s parliament introduced a bill proposal called “Conversion Practices Prohibition Legislation Bill”. He is hoping to have it passed in 2022. But the resistance in New Zealand is great. Continue reading The harm caused by a therapy ban in NZ, part 1 of 8: “A biased bill”
At the EU summit dinner table in Brussels in June 2021, emotions got high as several long-time EU member‑states tried to bully the Hungarian nation into canceling a recent law. Hungary wants to protect minors from being fed incorrect information without parental knowledge or consent about sexuality and the recently hyped transdelusion. Hungarian people realize that they have so little grip on matters of upbringing that it takes state power to forge space for parental involvement. They now pay the price as radicalized LGBT-activists in the EU parliament (most notably activist Sophie in ‘t Velt, NL) try to stigmatize Hungary’s majority wish and to set Europe up against the government.
I was reading the daily news on my smartphone the other day, minding my own business, when all of a sudden, I saw this new campaign to be launched to change professional soccer into a more inclusive environment for, as they put it: ‘gay’ and ‘bisexual’ soccer players. Because in Belgium, there are no openly ‘gay’ professional soccer players. And that has to change, so we are informed. Damn, June. Pride Month. I had forgotten. Mosquitoes, sunburn, and Pride Month. How could I forget? Not to mention horny frogs, croaking in my pond all night. Continue reading Exploring your full sexual potential, part 37: “I can’t play soccer for nuts”
