These books helped thousands quit homosexuality. Amazon just banned them.

The books Amazon banned are the continuation of my father’s legacy and of the changes that can take place through his methods. The books have hundreds of endorsements, from typical readers to past presidents of the American Psychological Association.

In one comment, which Amazon has now “banned,” a man said the book “Reparative Therapy of Male Homosexuality” saved his marriage.

Luckily for that man, he was able to find marital help before Amazon became the PC police. Today, he and many other families will now find fewer online resources than ever — not because science dictates their removal, but because LGBT ideology has shouted down sound science.

While Amazon is banning books — and restricting choice among those with unwanted same-sex attractions — some state governments are banning my father’s therapeutic practices.

But it’s clear that no government official who is voting to restrict client choice actually knows what reparative therapy entails. And with Amazon banning his books, radical LGBT activists hope to prevent even more lawmakers from ever finding out the truth.

(Book) Whiteness: The Original Sin

https://www.amazon.com/Whiteness-Original-Sin-Jim-Goad/dp/1729700411

As they say where I come from: Ol boy is pretty good! Jim Goad highlights two truths. 1.) That Whites (in particular White males) are under attack with pinpoint specific examples. 2.) And with more pinpoint examples that today’s progressive (and if I may add fanatical) liberals are the biggest hypocrites – even more than politicians. If you ask what is truth then you get it in a shot from the hip style from Mr. Jim Goad. Clearly has his hand on the pulse of today’s culture. Powerful, hard-hitting and honest; I highly recommend it for those who are interested in the real state of affairs. I know his critics have to hate him because the truth hurts. I highly recommend his work; he is the Dirty Harry of Journalism.

ADL Slams SCOTUS Decision to Allow WWI Memorial Cross to Stay on Public Land

ADL Director Jonathan Greenblatt wrote in a statement:

We are alarmed that the Supreme Court has allowed a 40-foot memorial cross to remain on government property in Maryland. As Justice Ginsburg wrote in dissent, ‘the principal symbol of Christianity around the world should not look over public thoroughfares, suggesting official recognition of that religion’s paramountcy.’

This decision unfortunately undermines well-established precedents safeguarding the separation of church and state. While religious symbols like this cross and other war memorials maintained on public land may be ‘rooted in history and tradition’ and not perceived as coercive, that should not be the determining principle as to whether they are constitutional. And the Court’s effort to distinguish between crosses that have been in place for a long time and ones that might be erected on government property in the future fails to address the serious concern we have about the message of religious endorsement any such cross or other religious display conveys. . . .

Leftists Rage After NYT Reports The ‘Happiest Of All Wives’ Are Religious Conservatives

The New York Times caused a mass triggering on Monday after publishing a report showing religious conservative women have the happiest marriages.

“It turns out that the happiest of all wives in America are religious conservatives, followed by their religious progressive counterparts,” the NY Times reported late Sunday. “Fully 73 percent of wives who hold conservative gender values and attend religious services regularly with their husbands have high-quality marriages.”

How the Nazis derailed the medical advances around sexual reassignment surgery by Asher Kohn

Today, there are well over 100 doctors in the United States who perform sexual reassignment surgery, according to TransHealthCare. But at one point, that number was more like…three.

Two of those worked with Christine Jorgensen, who is often credited as the first recipient of such surgery. She had to go to Denmark to begin treatment, but returned stateside in 1953 as a blond vamp. Becoming a nightclub singer and TV star with a Lauren Bacall fashion sense, she was an international sensation. But it turns out she was not the first person to have her sex reassigned.

Sex reassignment surgery had an earlier life, in an unexpected time and place: 1920s Germany. Several doctors there performed such surgeries using analog technology and organic hormones. They worked under a new paradigm: What if they could make someone’s body fit their mind instead of forcing their mind to fit their body?

“Sex-change surgery did not take root…because of new or unusual medical technology,” writes Yale professor Joanne Meyerowitz in her 2002 book How Sex Changed. “It took root because Germany had a vocal campaign for sexual emancipation.”

. . . .

There are also accounts of transplanting ape testicles into men, womb insertion, and voluntary castration. Constructed vaginal openings, done with rudimentary painkillers, bordered on the macabre.

But Hirschfeld took a different route. The Stonewall Society refers to him as part educator and part “father-confessor” who claimed to have discussed homosexuality and transsexual issues with over 30,000 people. He understood surgery as a promising field in the portfolio of sex studies, not as a new practice with which he could make his name.

Hirschfeld saw himself as an activist, constantly referring to a motto of “justice through science.”—which also made him a target of Germany’s rising far right. In 1921, he was jumped after a lecture and left for dead on the street.

He persisted, though, and became an intermediary between the German government and the trans community. One story tells of a trans woman who was arrested on counts of female impersonation. The judge contacted Hirschfeld, who consulted with the woman. She requested and received reassignment surgery, and later worked in Hirschfeld’s Institute for Sexual Science.

Two of Hirschfeld’s colleagues performed numerous reassignments and began to realize that their patients tended to be wealthy Germans. They publicized their surgeries in newspapers, hoping poorer trans people could learn about the procedures and get in touch.

By the early 1930s, people came from around the world to undergo reassignment surgery in Berlin. Then Adolf Hitler was appointed Chancellor of Germany in January 1931. Two years later, his brownshirts broke into Hirschfeld’s institute and burned his journals and research. When Hirschfeld was out of Germany on tour, the Nazi student group marched on the Institute. Over 20,000 books were set aflame, as well as medical diagrams and photographs crucial to understanding sex reassignment surgery. Hirschfeld and his colleagues were Jewish, but it wasn’t just that. Hitler also publicly raged against the “vice” of homosexuality and the “degenerate” lives of transsexuals. They weakened the Aryan cause.

The patients were largely saved from targeting by the Nazis by the fact that the documentation of their procedures went up in smoke, but the trans community’s Great Library of Alexandria was burned, and the medical research was pushed back decades.

Weak men more likely to be socialists, study claims

Don’t tell John Prescott, but maybe socialists are socialists because they aren’t that good in a fight. Conversely, free marketeers may not actually have a sincere belief in the power of Adam Smith’s unseeing hand – and instead have a justified belief in the power of their clenched fist.

A study has found that weaker men are more likely to be in favour of redistributive taxation. The strong on the other hand, who in their cavemen past had no problems controlling both women and resources they ha . . .

Takedown of Jared Diamond’s “Guns, Germs, and Steel”

It’s full of lies trying to show, as always, that Europe is nothing special.

Man Legally Changes Gender So He Can Retire Earlier

An Argentine man legally changed his gender so he could retire earlier, according to a Thursday report.Sergio, 59, an Argentine tax official, legally changed the last letter of his name to Sergia, assuming the identity of a woman, so he could retire five years early, the Daily Nation reported. Argentine law allows women to retire at 60 while men have to wait until they are 65 years old. Their legislation also states a woman can retire at age 65 — the same as the age of a man — but they will receive a higher pension, according to the United States Social Security Administration’s website.

Google found it paid men less than women for the same job (techcrunch.com)

The story we’re used to hearing is that women get paid less than men. In Google’s case, according to its own internal pay audit, it turned out male-identified Level 4 Software Engineers received less money than women in that same role. That led to Google paying $9.7 million to adjust pay for 10,677 employees.

It’s not clear how many of the employees who received pay adjustments were men (TechCrunch reached out to Google about this, but the company declined to share any additional data), but Google does cite the underpaying of men as a reason why the company paid more in adjustments for 2018 than in 2017. But The New York Times reports men received a disproportionately higher percentage of the money. . . .

Meanwhile, Google is still battling a class-action pay discrimination lawsuit and is the subject of a Labor Department investigation pertaining to compensation data.
