Stop the mutilation of our girls with so-called ‘gender-affirming care’

 By Kelsey Bolar | Fox News | Published March 11, 2023 10:00am EST


Friday, in Sacramento, Calif., a group of detransitioners, parents, and allies gathered at the state capitol building in honor of Detrans Awareness Day.  They came together to raise awareness about the growing group of individuals who say they’ve been irreparably harmed by the gender industry. 

Among them is Prisha Mosley, a female detransitioner who was prescribed male hormones as a minor and underwent a double mastectomy shortly after turning 18. Today at 25, Mosley describes feeling like a “medical monster,” suffering from a long list of prolonged side effects, including such severe vaginal atrophy that she can no longer use tampons. 


The effects of the “mutilation” that Mosley describes falling victim to as a child is not unlike the horrific procedure of female genital mutilation, which involves partial or total removal of the external female genitalia. 


As a result of her medical transition, Mosley is unable to have a normal sex life, says she feels as though she’s “robbing” her boyfriend of her breasts, and doesn’t know if she’ll ever be able to bear her own children. 

According to data from the World Health Organization, more than 200 million girls and women alive today have been subjected to FGM and, annually, more than 3 million girls are still at risk of being subjected to the procedure. FGM is nearly universally recognized as a violation of the human rights of girls and women, and a violation of the rights of children. And yet, in the U.S., under the guise of “gender-affirming care,” a modern-day version of the practice is being widely accepted and promoted to young girls.

Instead of calling it FGM, activists have bubble wrapped their modern-day mutilation in pleasant-sounding terms such “top surgery,” “bottom surgery,” and “reversible” hormonal treatments for children and adults who identify as transgender. 


Yet, like FGM, procedures offered to those who suffer from body image issues and/or gender confusion incorporate medical interventions that can mutilate their sex organs. These effects aren’t limited to vulvoplasties and hysterectomies, which are two of the more extreme surgical procedures offered under “gender-affirming care.” 

As Jamie Reed, a whistleblower who oversaw the treatment of thousands of minors at The Washington University Transgender Center at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, recently described:

“[G]irls were disturbed by the effects of testosterone on their clitoris, which enlarges and grows into what looks like a microphallus, or a tiny penis. I counseled one patient whose enlarged clitoris now extended below her vulva, and it chafed and rubbed painfully in her jeans. I advised her to get the kind of compression undergarments worn by biological men who dress to pass as female. At the end of the call I thought to myself, ‘Wow, we hurt this kid.’

“There are rare conditions in which babies are born with atypical genitalia—cases that call for sophisticated care and compassion. But clinics like the one where I worked are creating a whole cohort of kids with atypical genitals—and most of these teens haven’t even had sex yet. They had no idea who they were going to be as adults. Yet all it took for them to permanently transform themselves was one or two short conversations with a therapist.”

This is an atrocity. And disproportionately, it’s an atrocity that’s affecting the bodies of women, as girls account for a significant majority of minors receiving “gender-affirming care.”


While critics are quick to dismiss evidence of “social contagion” among teenage girls, even the World Professional Association for Transgender Health and its activist president, Dr. Marci Bowers, have recognized that social influences may be driving some transgender identification in youth. 


This perhaps explains why detransitioners are a rapidly-growing group gaining more visibility and attention, despite claims by some transgender activists that detransitioning is rare or not a “real thing.” Yet the harrowing stories of former trans-identified individuals serve as a cautionary tale against medical transitioning, as professionals appear either unable or unwilling to treat the often-severe medical complications caused by puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and surgeries. 

At its root, gender ideology teaches vulnerable and impressionable girls to medicalize the natural insecurities that they face. In pursuit of “acceptance,” professionals then send them down a devastating path that includes drugs used to castrate male sex offenders and, in some cases, irreversible surgeries.


European countries such as the U.K., Sweden, Finland, and most recently Norway have moved to sharply limit these practices for minors after a systematic review of evidence found that the risks to “gender-affirming care” outweigh any benefits. 

Here in the U.S., aside from a few brave states such as Florida pushing back on “gender-affirming care,” we’re moving in the opposite direction. Activists, medical professionals, and politicians are doubling down on their support for the mutilation of healthy bodies by smearing attempts to ban these procedures as bigoted and dangerous—attacks not unlike those once used to legalize and normalize FGM.

For his part, President Joe Biden has made his position clear: “Affirming your child’s identity is one of the most powerful things you can do to keep them safe and healthy,” he said in a 2022 video message speaking directly to parents.

But sadly for the Biden administration, it’s not enough to irreversibly destroy the future sex lives and reproductive abilities of youth by encouraging experimental drugs and treatments in the U.S. According to a leaked internal memo from Secretary Antony Blinken, the Biden administration may begin pressuring other countries to push vulnerable youth into hormones and surgeries. 


As Manhattan Institute scholar Leor Sapir put it, “Under President Biden, it would appear that cultural arrogance and ‘colonialism’ (as defined in the contemporary academy) are once again staples of American foreign policy.”

With Detrans Awareness Day following on the heels of International Women’s Day this week, it’s time to stop mincing words. We must treat gender ideology as a human rights issue. And we must be clear, the Biden administration is on the wrong side.

Christian Teen Who Refused to Deny Christ Subjected to Female Genital Mutilation by Muslim Radicals

Muslims radicals punished the daughter of a Christian missionary for her faith by subjecting her to brutal female genital mutilation. Currently, the young woman remains in a coma, struggling for her life.

Muslims radicals punished the daughter of a Christian missionary for her faith by subjecting her to brutal female genital mutilation. Currently, the young woman remains in a coma, struggling for her life.

Lydia, the 14-year-old daughter of Yoonus, a missionary working with Bibles for Mideast, was walking home from school in West Africa when a group of Muslim fanatics captured her and violently circumcised her. After the mutilation, they abandoned her, leaving her bleeding and screaming in agony. A local secret believer heard Lydia’s screams, and took her to hospital. However, by the time she arrived she was in a life-threatening coma. Currently, the young girl is struggling for her life.

According to Bible for Mideast, a ministry that operates in the Middle East, Asia and Africa by giving away Bibles, evangelizing the lost and planting churches, Lydia was targeted for her faith, as she “boldly proclaimed Jesus as the Son of God” and “loved to speak of how He died on the cross of Calvary and rose from the dead to save everyone from sin and death.”

Her father, originally from another part of Africa, had been a Muslim scholar who converted to Christianity after having a vision of Jesus Christ. Due to severe persecution in their native village, however, the entire family had to flee to their current home.

The local Muslim community recently learned Yoonus had left Islam and was now leading Muslims to Christ. Angered, the Imam of the local mosque, along with community leaders, urged him to return to Islam and promised to give him gifts if he rejected Christianity. However, Yoonus and his family refused to renounce their faith, resulting in increased persecution.

Bibles for Mideast has asked the international community to continue to pray for Yoonus and Lydia, the believers in West Africa, and the medical staff looking after her.

According to the World Health Organization, Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is an illegal practice that involves the partial or total removal of the female external genitalia for non medical reasons. The ritual, which can cause severe bleeding, infections, as well as complications in childbirth, is carried out for various reasons, such as the belief that the procedure reduces a woman’s libido and decreases the risk of extramarital sexual affairs, and is linked to African non-Christian religions and traditions.

UNICEF data reveals that more than 200 million girls and women alive today have been cut in 30 countries in Africa, the Middle East and Asia. FGM is mostly carried out on girls and infants below the age of 15 – often by their own mothers – and is considered a violation of human rights.

Voice of America notes that the U.N. Population Fund and U.N. Children’s Fund have been supporting 17 countries in a Joint Program on Female Genital Mutilation since 2008. As part of the Sustainable Development Goals, the United Nations has called for an end to FGM by 2030. To do this, U.N. officials have said governments must work together to enact and enforce laws and policies that “protect the rights of girls and women and prevent FGM,” that those at risk have greater access to support services, and that families and communities take action and refuse to permit their girls to undergo the practice.

Sharia Law: Muslim Rule Book for “Acceptable” Torture

Written on Friday, March 28, 2014 by Susan Horton

All over Britain Burka draped women are carrying signs saying: Democracy is falling Sharia is returning, Sharia the future of the United Kingdom or Sharia will Dominate the World. Have you ever seen the terror-stricken face of the Muslim women buried up to her breast with her arms tied behind her back as she is now an easy target for stoning to death? I’m sure her thinking is how grateful she is that righteous Sharia has made a come-back.

According to al-Tabari, (volume- 9) “If any man’s wife commits any open indecency then Allah permits him to shut her in a separate room and to beat her but not severely.  Beaten black and blue with broken ribs and nose is OK if the man interprets severely to mean something else. If the woman abstains from evil she has a right to her food and clothing in accordance with the custom. Treat women well, for they are [like] domestic animals with you and do not possess anything for themselves.” Women are chattel, you can beat, starve and mistreat because they are simply trained animals.

Islam has a rule book called Sharia which governs all aspects of a Muslim’s life. It is derived from a combination of sources including the Quran, the Hadith and fatwas which has executive privilege and interpretation subject to change at any time under the direction of their Muslim Brotherhood’s, “Spiritual leader”, currently Mohammed Badie.

Great Britain had over 90 Sharia courts in 2009. London’s Daily Mail said, “The Tribunals, working mainly from Mosques settle financial and family disputes according to religious principles. They operate behind closed doors with Muslim observers and decisions are unfair to women and backed by intimidation. Women are sent back to abusive relationships without any recourse. Islamic law views women as always wrong and men are always right.” Man is always right over an animal therefore, there is never evidence in favor of the women’s side. The Clarion project/Britain 2013

The Taliban believes Sharia says: severed hands, stoning or stabbing to death, cutting off a nose or ears, setting on fire and even acid in the face is acceptable punishment of dishonoring your family. Most Muslims who want Sharia say no to the stoning and severed hands thinking it is rare and happens in extreme cases. In fact it is the real Sharia wherever it is given reign. It’s rare because the Media has shied away from the story in fear.

Much has been written on the “circumcising” of women, more appropriately called female genital mutilation (FGM) or torture. Globally, 130 million women and girls are said to have been circumcised. It has existed thousands of years and is concentrated in Equatorial, East and the Horn of Africa and across the Middle East wherever there is Islamic influence. Source: Islam Watch/Women under Islam (FGM)

In Somalia type 1 or type 3 of cutting is employed. Type 3 (sometimes called infibulation) is extreme: Excision of part or all of the external genitalia (clitoris, labia minora and labia majora), and stitching or narrowing of the vagina opening to the size of a matchstick, to allow the flow of urine, menstrual blood and excruciating pain in child bearing. The U.S. State Dept. quotes a study that in Somaliland 91% of the women had undergone type 3 and only 9% had type 1 performed.

Girls having (FGM) reflect deep-rooted attitudes that women don’t have the right to control their own sexuality. It also creates a subservient (fear) to men in their spirit at a very early age. The physical risks include infection, hemorrhage, scarring, urinary and reproductive problems and DEATH is common. Many experience depression, self-loathing, loss of interest in sex and a compulsive need to urinate. An act of ferocity against women with a life-time of continual torture as her body grows and stretches.

Why is this perpetuated when they all state that (FGM) is not required by Sharia law?

It’s barbaric, when answered publicly. When answered privately in truth, the Imam’s and Lukman Hakim, social welfare secretary at The Islamic Assalaam Foundation in Bandung, Indonesia where 248 girls were “cut” stated “It’s necessary to control women’s sexual urges.”   Source: The Observer (FGM)

Britain has the highest level of (FGM) in Europe according to a government-funded study published in 2007; at least 66,000 women and girls in Britain have had the procedure. It is illegal in Britain but reluctance to tackle the problem is perceived as attacking Islam, being Islamophobic or racist. I know American women would never allow the mutilation of their genitalia nor vote for someone who believed in it but Sharia is already in Dearborn, Michigan on the brink of applying it.

Where are the Left’s Politically Correct voices about (REAL) War on Women? Where are woman’s rights advocates in the Muslim government or religious rules of even basic human rights? As stated above they are considered slaves to men and yet…. the Left is silent.

Here is what I think. It’s all about the money; if you can’t beat them join them. Great Britain allows hefty Sharia control of Muslim operated No-Go zones with over 90 Sharia courts in its Islamic communities. It is said that once the Muslim population becomes 20% or more the problem will be too large to control except through bloodshed or…investmentin their law.

Great Britain is leading the Western World with compliancy toward Sharia. Last year Oct. 2013 the London stock exchange said it would be launching a new Islamic bond index in an attempt to establish the City of London as one of the world’s leading centers of Islamic finance. This effort brings greater Arab investments to us making Britain the first non-Muslim nation to issue a Sharia compliant bond. Their goal is to issue sovereign Islamic bonds known as Sukuk beginning in 2014 and acquire a big slice of the fastest growing global market which operates according to Sharia law.

British Prime Minister, David Cameron explained his strategy. “When Islamic finance is growing 50% faster than traditional banking and global Islamic investments are set to grow 1.3 Trillion pounds (over 2 Trillion American Dollars) by 2014 we want to make sure a big proportion of that new investment is made here in Britain.” This announcement of his plans was made during a keynote speech at the ninth World Islamic Economic Forum which was held in London from Oct. 29-31, 2013, the first time [ever] the event was held outside the Muslim world.

Watch out America Sharia is fiscally prosperous and trending. Remember the signs the Muslim women are carrying? Democracy is falling, Sharia is returning. It‘s not based on our Constitution, Bill of Rights or Bible but our government leaders are easily swayed by greed.

Although council is not legally recognized by the courts in the UK, Sharia is well-established in Muslim communities. Its rulings are preparatory steps for the final goal of gaining confidence of the host community in the accuracy of the Islamic legal system. Experience gained by the scholars taking part in trials prepares them for eventual Islamic law application into challenges facing them in the West. Taking initiative to bypass waiting for local courts to solve a problem in the Islamic community is positive.

Islam is a very concise conglomerate under the heading of Religion. It has the inclusive blending of Religion with Economy with Government. It is the perfect seamless circle intertwined together from beginning to end. It’s the [very] definition of “New World Order” all summed up to cover every avenue of existence with one leader in control. Its tentacles spread into everyone’s life. Its goal is to control by coercing you to the very clothes you wear, education you can obtain, how to pray, how many times a day; any punishment and how severe to offenders who step out of line of their subjugation.

Recognize the testing of the acceptance of the world of the “real war of control” by Muslim focus on torture of women. Sharia is expediently pushing its way into America as rapidly as Christianity is being forced to exit.  Women’s Human Rights in Britain are trumped by ancient, lurid brutality to fearfully control modern-day women’s thinking.

The sign says, Sharia will dominate the World! Obama has already neutered our Military (MRM) Military Religious Mutilation. They cannot pray, have a Bible or have verses etched on their guns. I picture our Military akin to the Muslim woman about to be stoned… emasculated, buried in legal hype up to their chest, arms tied behind them and without a prayer. Do nothing to halt this insidious proliferation of religion-disguised perversion into America today… and tomorrow we may see Sharia-terror overpower all America into compliance, buying bonds of acceptable torture, just like Great Britain.
