Death by ‘Gender’

Posted on | July 27, 2018 | Comments Off on Death by ‘Gender’


Katyana Elasia Haught was a young woman from Livermore, California, who in January 2017 began injecting testosterone. Eight months later, after changing her name to “Daine Faolan Grey,” she “came out” as a “gay” transgender male — in other words, a woman who wants to “transition” in order to have sex with gay men. The word for this is crazy.


What madness inspires these people? How much of a sense of failure as a woman do you need to believe you would be better off injecting synthetic hormones and undergoing surgery to become a fake “man”? Speculation about the etiology of transgender delusions has led many parents to become concerned about Rapid Onset Gender Dysphoria and the influence of social contagion. If young people are part of a peer group (either at school, or among online “friends” via social media) where LGBT identities are normalized and celebrated, they are vulnerable to recruitment into The Trans Cult. It is not an exaggeration to say that transgender activists promote a cult mentality, an ideological echo chamber within which critical voices are prohibited as “hate.”

Whatever the cause of transgender delusions, the effects are dangerous. Gender dysphoria has high rates of co-morbidity with other mental illnesses, and “transition” is not a solution to problems like depression, anxiety, autism, schizophrenia or personality disorders.

Did anyone warn Katyana Haught about these potential hazards before she got her prescription for synthetic testosterone? Did any therapist suggest to this college girl, barely out of her teens, that perhaps her emotional trauma was a result of growing up in a dysfunctional family? On July 2, Katyana a/k/a “Daine Grey” committed suicide at age 22, and there was a controversy about her family’s failure to claim the body:

NBC News contacted Grey’s parents, Stephanie and Peter Haught, who are separated from each other and estranged. Stephanie Haught said she hadn’t talked to her son since he was 16 and only found out he was transgender through Facebook days before he died. She claimed Grey’s father told her he would claim their son’s body. Peter Haught declined to provide NBC News with an on-the-record comment.

What sort of mother doesn’t speak to her child for more than five years? Doesn’t this give us an insight into the kind of unloving environment Katyana/”Daine” probably experienced as a child? Doesn’t having your parents “separated from each other and estranged” tend to be a reliable predictor for many different social problems for young adults? And shouldn’t emotionally troubled young people be warned against believing that “gender transition” is a panacea for such problems?


Has anyone at the Queer Resources Center at City College of San Francisco ever considered that they may be complicit in this tragedy? That maybe providing “a center of education for and about the queer community . . . a safe space for queer and transgender students” might prove to be a magnet for profoundly troubled young people who would be better served by psychiatric treatment for their underlying issues?

Well, I’m a right-winger in the “basket of deplorables,” which means I’m not supposed to care about what happens to these weirdos. From a purely political perspective, if the entire “queer community” in San Francisco committed suicide by leaping en masse from the Golden Gate Bridge, my official statement would be, “Good riddance.” But there is more to life than politics, and perhaps there are even some people in San Francisco’s “queer community” who don’t think that every lonely teenage weirdo should be encouraged to pursue “gender transition” as a solution for their personal problems. That’s basically the issue highlighted by the suicide of Katyana Haught a/k/a “Daine Grey.” Young people are being encouraged to believe a lie, and to think the “cure” for mental illness is to force the rest of us to cooperate with their delusions.

Crazy People Are Dangerous, to themselves and others.
