A bit off topic… but hey… it’s my blog now. Sorry about that.

Over at the Federalist blog appears a story titled: Trouble in Transtopia: Murmurs of Sex Change Regret. The Drudge Report picked it up as well.

Turns out that a high proportion of individuals who undergo “elective bodily mutilation” such as sex change procedures, have regrets. Could be as high as 65% according to one British poll.

However, if one of these unfortunate individuals decides to revert back to his biological state, “de-transition”, this individual will have a problem, most notably with the “un-transitioned”.

I will let the author, Stella Morabito pick up from here: [Reproduced with emphasis and comments]

But the difference between (Courtney ) Love (who had her lips enhanced) and the guy with phantom penis syndrome is that the guy isn’t allowed to talk about his regret. Not openly. The transgender lobby actively polices and suppresses discussion of sex-change regret, and claims it’s rare (no more than “5 percent.”) However, if you do decide to “de-transition” to once again identify with the sex in your DNA, talking about it will get you targeted by trans activists. So it’s a challenge to understand the scope of regret for sex change surgery. It’s out there, but…

Not only are these stories out there, but they end in tragedy. As in the case of Mike Penner (to read about Rene Richards, please go to the article):

Penner’s story is even more tragic. In April 2007, Penner, a Los Angeles Times sportswriter for 24 years, announced in a stunning column that he would come back from vacation as “Christine Daniels.” He then wrote a blog, “Woman in Progress,” as he lived as a woman and served as a spokesperson for transgender activism.

But then, with no explanation, Penner decided in 2008 to de-transition. He readopted his byline, Mike Penner, and lived again as a man. All blog posts and bylines by Christine Daniels were mysteriously scrubbed from the LA Times website. Penner discussed none of it. But according to one report, he was devastated over not being able to save his marriage. Then tragically, in November 2009, Penner killed himself. The funeral for Penner was strictly private to keep out media. The LGBT community had their own memorial service, but only for “Christine Daniels,” not Mike Penner.

The reason I posted the above article is to demonstrate how the forces of “progress”, whether in the “trans-gender” industry or in the conciliar church function. Once the “narrative” has been established, professional “watch dogs” are put in place to protect that narrative.

Which leads me to the analogous example in the conciliar church. Over at Fr. Z’s blog, he puts up a post titled: Religious News Service Smear of Card. Burke (link here)

Summing up the “smear article”, Fr.Z writes:

It is open season on Raymond Card. Burke.  The liberals have their knives out.

Remember when Card. Kasper suggested that there was going to be negative consequences in the press for those who were on the opposite side of the positions he was proposing? HERE

So what is the moral of the story, you might ask?

I will allow Mrs Morabito explain [with emphasis and comments]:

These stories [de-transitioning in the case of the article, and suppression of Catholicism in the case of Fr. Z’s post] may be the tip of the proverbial iceberg [should be “are”  not “may”]. There are many such scattered about, and you can see my blog for supplementation. No doubt they’re not widely reported because they don’t fit the “transgender-as-paragon-of-personal-courage” narrative [or the “spirit of V II” as the new springtime] so popular in the media today. But there’s also that element of active suppression by the trans activists [and by the Vatican II lobby in our case].

Yes folks. As you can see, the devastation is everywhere in our “anthropocentric” world. Repressing the reality of the “genital mutilation industry”, just like the repression of the Restoration of the Catholic Church is an ongoing process. What we see is only the tip of the iceberg.  But what we also have to be cognizant of is the part we don’t see, i.e. much larger part that is under the water. Because reality is comprised of the entire ICEBERG.
