Blaire white – rationalwiki reasons for hormonal imbalance in females

White is a trans woman undergoing transition. As a result, her views on GSM issues often get extra respect despite being contradicted by science. Indeed, White routinely holds views contrary to those of scientific professionals on trans issues:

• Mental disorder: White has asserted that transgenderism is a mental disorder, [7] which is false according to the American Psychological Association, [8] American Psychiatric Association, [9] and the World Health Organization. [10] [11] Indeed, in what was probably shocking news to exactly no trans person other than Blaire White, trans children were found to have normal rates of anxiety and depression when accepted by their families and communities. [12] [13] To White’s credit, she has since admitted that her video title transgenderism is a mental disorder was inappropriate and incorrect, as she had meant to refer only to gender dysphoria – and not transgenderism itself – as a mental disorder. [14] While not as bad, this claim is still controversial at best. [15] [16]

• Transitioning: In the same video, she states her belief that transitioning is a faulty response to gender dysphoria and not for everyone, and that there should be a cure for transgenderism, which is again denied by the American Psychological Association. [17]

• Gender binary: White firmly believes that there are only two genders [18] [19] and calls non-binary gender identities trans-retarded. [20] This has no basis in any academic field of study, whether you want to look at biology, psychiatry, [note 1] or anthropology. There is no definition of gender under which it is true. It is first-grade bullshit that merely appeals to the worldview of right-wingers in the United States.

• Childhood transition: Ironically for someone who denounces transtrenders, a term that is usually a snarl word for people who reject transmedicalism, White believes that childhood transition is literally child abuse. [21] Replace transgender with any other medical condition and the contradiction becomes obvious; this is, however, resolved when you view her not as making reasonable arguments but as pandering to a conservative audience that is looking for every pseudo-rational reason to justify their transphobia. Also, despite grabbing her a lot of attention the term child abuse for childhood transition is, again, rejected by the American Psychological Association, which extensively discusses trans youth, though it does conclude consensus does not exist regarding best practice with prepubertal children. [8] White has been known to misgender and dead-name other trans people. In a recent study, researchers interviewed transgender youths ages 15 to 21 and asked whether young people could use their chosen name at school, home, work and with friends. Compared with peers who could not use their chosen name in any context, young people who could use their name in all four areas experienced 71 percent fewer symptoms of severe depression, a 34 percent decrease in reported thoughts of suicide and a 65 percent decrease in suicidal attempts. [22] In addition, trans YouTuber Zinnia Jones has two citation-heavy response blogs. [23] [24]

White doesn’t like the LGBT community. [27] In her video series Triggering Trannies (later renamed to Upset Trans People [28]) White freely admits that the LGBT community opposes her views, though she blows it off as just the SJW branch. [29] [30] [31] Fittingly, White also holds numerous views that appear to be based not on reason but bigotry:

• White only supports straight trans women (i.e. those attracted exclusively to men). She believes that trans lesbians are really just straight men, taking the liberty to call one he and heterosexual. Despite (at the time) being a non-op herself, Blaire criticizes said lesbian for still having a penis. [32]

• White dedicates five videos solely to attacking Riley Dennis, a trans female YouTuber. [36] [37] [38] [39] [40] She also misgenders Dennis, [32] [41] [42] [43] perhaps because she doesn’t think Dennis is truly trans. [44] However, she has since apologized for said misgendering, when Riley Dennis revealed that she had been receiving hormones and laser hair removal, which is like apologizing to an Italian person for beating them up because you thought they were speaking Spanish.
