When I first started investigating the prevalence of so-called Gender Affirmative care for teens and children in the United States, I thought that I would stumble across a few dozen clinics on both coasts. However, as the search widened the landscape changed, almost overnight.
TikTok is at the forefront of preparing your children for a life of dysphoria, body hatred, cross-sex hormones, and surgery and it is no conspiracy, the data speaks for itself.
#topsurgery has 353 million views on TikTok- nearly 1 million in the past 24 hours. That should make our blood run cold. In fact, if you are on TikTok ( TikTok is aimed at younger people, the average age being 14 ), you would not be able to avoid these hashtags. Why is TikTok not being held accountable for these hashtags promoting body hatred? Even Tumblr in 2017 recognized that pro-anorexia hashtags were causing issues in teenage girls and closed them down, but the same logic has not been applied to the same cohort who now wants both breasts removed.
Plume, a hormone dispensing app for android and IOS, is at the forefront of breaking down the safeguarding and making sure that ALL confused teens get bogus letters for surgery and cross-sex hormones. All from the comfort of their phone. Plume is essentially prescribing life long medical hormones via their apps chat feature. Arizona, Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Illinois, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Virginia, Utah, Washington and more coming soon.
Plume markets itself for the younger audience, marketing the decision to go on cross-sex hormones as a part of any young person's life.
New York mother, Sandra, said that her son started identifying as trans during COVID, dropping his entire offline life and migrated online, logging on to join World Of Warcraft Gaming groups and watching endless trans YouTubers where he first declared himself to be "nonbinary". A few weeks later as he made more Trans identified friends online, he wrote his mother a text message saying "I am a transgender, don't be mad at me".
Sandra saw this coming- her son had dumped all his friends and had no engagement with them and was spending upwards of 15 hours a day on his computer, talking to trans teens all over the world.
"At first I really thought it was just harmless, but he's sitting in front of his computer for 15 hours a day, not eating, not showering, and not talking to me, we communicate via SMS."
Sandra's worst fears were realized when she broke into her son's discord and found that he was "chatting" to men who claimed to be women who were well into their 30s. Her son was being coached on how to lie, deceive and even run away from his parents.
"The people my son was talking to online are extremely predatory. My son is not yet 18, and they know that, yet they speak to him for hours, send him pictures and coach him on what to say to therapists and how to deceive his parents. "
These stories are not unique- and why would they be? The predators with "Glitter Families" want you to know exactly what they are doing
Jeffrey March is another TikTok Influencer who is producing content for the young and impressionable, a quick glance at his TikTok analytics and you can see nearly 50,000 young people are "following" him.
Teens who are going through a horrific crisis comprised of body issues and regular teenage angst do not need a plethora of "influencers" who promote cross-sex hormones and even tell you to leave your unsupportive parents!
Jeffrey Marsh says " As your internet then-gel, as your NB Parent of the webs, let me tell you, you are doing great, I know it doesn't seem like it.... I do know that if you need a place to BE and to be safe, you can do that here. My page is your family. This is a family. I know that a lot of you have been stuck with a family who is disrespectful, dangerous even, you are safe here, you deserve a kind, good, loving accepting family- and this is it"
Encouraging children to leave their "unsupportive and transphobic" parents is a common theme that runs through ALL of the influencers who are male.
