C.  Biological, Medical and Psychological Issues of Transgender and Transitioning, including Suicidality, Autogynephelia, Gratuitous Violence

Beyond WPATH [World Professional Association for Transgender Health]
“As mental health professionals, public health scientists, and allied organizations and individuals, we have grave concerns about the damaging physical and mental health impacts of the current Standards of Care released by WPATH (the World Professional Association for Transgender Health). We hold that WPATH has discredited itself.”

Center for Bioethics and Culture
“… to educate and inform members of the general public, thought leaders, lawmakers, and others on ethical issues in healthcare, biomedical research, and biotechnological advancement.”

Do No Harm
"We are a diverse group of physicians, healthcare professionals, medical students, patients, and policymakers united by a moral mission: Protect healthcare from a radical, divisive, and discriminatory ideology. We believe in making healthcare better for all – not undermining it in pursuit of a political agenda."

 The Paradox Institute
“... exploring the origins of contemporary gender theory inside the framework of postmodernism…The content we produce is informed by scientific literature; professionals from the fields of biology, psychology, endocrinology, and sociology.”

Partners for Ethical Care
“… a non-partisan, all-volunteer, grassroots nonprofit organization.. to raise awareness and support efforts to stop the unethical treatment of children by schools, hospitals, and mental and medical healthcare providers under the duplicitous banner of gender identity affirmation.  We believe that no child is born in the wrong body.”   

Society for Evidence Based Medicine
“…to promote safe, compassionate, ethical and evidence-informed healthcare for children, adolescents, and young adults with gender dysphoria."

Idealized media images of women are far from being the only important target when it comes to our beauty-sick culture, but their sheer ubiquity means we can't underestimate their impact. We also cannot pretend that what we see in the media doesn't shape our thoughts and behaviors. It might be tempting to think that your mind is locked behind some protective wall, safe from the influence of the media onslaught, but that's not how brains work. We are all affected by these images. Their influence is insidious, and there is no magic force field to keep it out
