On May 7th two students; Devon Erickson, 18, and Alec [Maya] McKinney, 16 opened fire at the STEM School – Highlands Ranch Colorado killing one student and injured eight others.
School Officials Warned:
- One of the Colorado charter school shooting suspects “always joked” about massacring his classmates, a former student says. Devon Erickson, 18, “would whisper, like get really close and kinda put his arm around you, and whisper in your ear, ‘Don’t come to school tomorrow,’” explained the former student, Kevin Cole, in an interview with “Today.”
- On Jan. 25, he apparently expressed his distaste for his classmates at STEM School Highlands Ranch, tweeting: “FUCK stem kids i swear to fucking god.”
- On Feb. 21, he tweeted: “G-gun F-for the purpose of shooting myself.”
- Officials at STEM School Highlands Ranch reportedly were warned five months before this week’s deadly attack of a “perfect storm” brewing on campus for “a repeat of Columbine.” Parents had been complaining about bullying, sexual assault and violence.
- A parent told CNN that she was so concerned about the “pressure cooker” of violence, sexual assault and bullying at the Colorado school, she called to complain to a county school board member in December.
- School district official Daniel Winsor then wrote to STEM’s administration, specifically mentioning the parent’s fears of “a repeat of Columbine,” the 1999 massacre just 7 miles from STEM, according to the letter obtained by CNN.
“Many students are suicidal and violent in school,” Winsor wrote, terming the concerns “very serious” and calling for an urgent investigation, according to CNN.
Obsessed With Dark Subjects:
Officers were on scene at a Highlands Ranch home believed to be linked to Erickson on Tuesday night. They towed a white Honda sedan with “Fuck society,” “666” and what looked like a pentagram spray-painted across it, according to local reports.
The Sexual Issues:
- Authorities have been describing McKinney as a female juvenile named Maya
- When McKinney appeared in court, attorney said he preferred the pronoun ‘he’
- Friends have taken to McKinney’s Instagram to reveal he was suffering from mental health issues and ‘desperately needed’ help.
A report [The New Atlantis Journal] finds scarce scientific evidence to conclude that transgender people are “born” that way.
The 143-page paper, published in The New Atlantis Journal, combs through hundreds of studies in search of a causal, biological explanation for gender identity, but comes up empty.
“Likewise, the belief that gender identity is an innate, fixed human property independent of biological sex — so that a person might be a ‘man trapped in a woman’s body’ or a ‘woman trapped in a man’s body’ — is not supported by scientific evidence,” the report states.
- The only long-term study of transgender outcomes concluded that “Male to Female” transsexuals retain male-pattern criminality, including crimes against women.
NOTE: Their biological based aggression does not change.
[Long-Term Follow-Up of Transsexual Persons Undergoing Sex Reassignment Surgery: Cohort Study in Sweden http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0016885%5D
- The DSM-5 changed the listing of transgender to “gender dysphoria,” in 2013, it remains classified as a mental illness today.
The Statements Of International Experts:
Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry states that Transgenderism is a mental disorder that merits treatment, that sex change is biologically impossible, and that people who promote sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder.
“’Sex change’ is biologically impossible,” “People who undergo sex-reassignment surgery do not change from men to women or vice versa. Rather, they become feminized men or masculinized women. Claiming that this is civil-rights matter and encouraging surgical intervention is in reality to collaborate with and promote a mental disorder.”
Dr. Joseph Berger, has issued a statement saying that from a medical and scientific perspective there is no such thing as a “transgendered” person, and that terms such as “gender expression” and “gender identity” used in the bill are at the very least ambiguous, and are more an emotional appeal than a statement of scientific fact.
“The medical treatment of delusions, psychosis or emotional happiness is not surgery.”
Moreover, Dr. Berger stated that the arguments put forward by those advocating for special rights for gender confused people have no scientific value and are subjective and emotional appeals with no objective scientific basis.
Dr. Kenneth Zucker, long acknowledged as a foremost authority on gender identity issues in children, has also been a lifelong advocate for gay and transgender rights.
However, much to the consternation of adult transgender activists, Zucker believes that gender-dysphoric pre-pubertal children are best served by helping them align their gender identity with their anatomic sex. This view ultimately cost him his 30-year directorship of the Child Youth and Family Gender Identity Clinic (GIC) at the Center for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto.
- While approximately 6.7 percent of the general United States population suffers from depression and 18 percent grapple with some iteration of an anxiety disorder, nearly half of all individuals who identify as transgender experience these issues.
What’s more, over 41 percent of trans men and women are estimated to have attempted suicide — a rate that’s nearly nine times as high as the rate of cisgender Americans.
NOTE: Social stigma has been shown to NOT be a factor in this.
- A 2011 Swedish study, it looked at mortality and morbidity after gender reassignment surgery and found that people who changed genders had a higher risk of suicide.
In this study, all the sex-reassigned persons in Sweden from 1973–2003 (191 male-to-females, 133 female-to-males) were compared to a comparable random control group. The sex-reassigned persons had substantially higher rates of death from cardiovascular disease and suicide, and substantially higher rates of attempted suicide….Gender surgery is not effective treatment for depression, anxiety or mental disorders.
Transgender people have extremely high suicide rates, aggression, depression and anxiety disorder.
