    It really isn’t new news, but I hope the severity of the fatherlessness of Hitler Youth, young ISIS recruits, prisoners, and mass shooters would light our knowledge with renewed passion.

    When I was a kid – even into high school. I wasnt able to even change classes without a parent signing off on it. Now its ok that children can order expensive and life altering drugs and procedures without any parental guidance? Crazy stuff.

    The reason that Gender has to be a social construct or even myth – is basic denial of reality. Its a mind control technique. In order to truly control someone, reality has to be what you say it is. The subject of the mind control becomes a co-operating conspirator in his own brainwashing. 

    From “Thought Reform and the Psychology of Totalism” by Dr Robert J Liffton:

    1. Milieu Control. This involves the control of information and communication both within the environment and, ultimately, within the individual, resulting in a significant degree of isolation from society at large.
    2. Mystical Manipulation. The manipulation of experiences that appears spontaneous but is, in fact, planned and orchestrated by the group or its leaders in order to demonstrate divine authority, spiritual advancement, or some exceptional talent or insight that sets the leader and/or group apart from humanity, and that allows reinterpretation of historical events, scripture, and other experiences. Coincidences and happenstance oddities are interpreted as omens or prophecies.
    3. Demand for Purity. The world is viewed as black and white and the members are constantly exhorted to conform to the ideology of the group and strive for perfection. The induction of guilt and/or shame is a powerful control device used here.
    4. Confession. Sins, as defined by the group, are to be confessed either to a personal monitor or publicly to the group. There is no confidentiality; members’ “sins,” “attitudes,” and “faults” are discussed and exploited by the leaders.
    5. Sacred Science. The group’s doctrine or ideology is considered to be the ultimate Truth, beyond all questioning or dispute. Truth is not to be found outside the group. The leader, as the spokesperson for God or for all humanity, is likewise above criticism.
    6. Loading the Language. The group interprets or uses words and phrases in new ways so that often the outside world does not understand. This jargon consists of thought-terminating clichés, which serve to alter members’ thought processes to conform to the group’s way of thinking.
    7. Doctrine over person. Members’ personal experiences are subordinated to the sacred science and any contrary experiences must be denied or reinterpreted to fit the ideology of the group.
    8. Dispensing of existence. The group has the prerogative to decide who has the right to exist and who does not. This is usually not literal but means that those in the outside world are not saved, unenlightened, unconscious and they must be converted to the group’s ideology. If they do not join the group or are critical of the group, then they must be rejected by the members. Thus, the outside world loses all credibility. In conjunction, should any member leave the group, he or she must be rejected also.[3]

    In addition to cultural norms being skewed, such that girls are bolstered by special programs to help them develop self esteem, while boys’ needs are ignored, there is also the fact that 6% of teenagers are on psych meds. Boys are more likely than girls to be prescribed these drugs, due to normal classroom restlessness being considered a sign of ADHD.

    These drugs often curtail a suppression of the libido. So in addition to everything else, teenaged boys on these meds are even more likely to shy away from dating.

    I should add, that the above list quoted in my prior post, is the 8 criteria for thought reform. Dr Liffton was able to reconstruct the program by interviewing survivors of Chinese re-education camps of the 1950s. (Including US Servicemen whom spent time in Korean POW camps).

    I ran into the 500 word limit.

    My husband jokingly added that they might not know who is a girl or boy, as well. Funny, but true.

    Dr. Farrell discusses this in his book. I would be surprised if that number wasn’t higher.
