Quote# 140257

But the Satanic Panic had no powerful lobbies behind it, just certain segments of the Religious Right and fundies. And most of these people believed the best way to fight the Satanic cults and demons they thought were everywhere was the power of prayer (plus occasionally burning some heavy metal albums and D&D books).

Meanwhile the tranny lobby is being backed by pharmaceutical companies as well as the gay rights movement, which is now focusing extensively on trannies, often to the detriment of the LGB part of LGBT. Investors and billionaires invested in pharma and the civil rights industry, like George Soros (check his investment in pharma), have been extensively involved in astroturfing the tranny movement. They back all these studies that talk about how great the hormones are for treating gender dysphoria, which is about as unbiased and scientific as when the tobacco industry claimed that smoking cigarettes was harmless.

Given these financial interests, this shit isn't going away until people who have been irreversibly harmed by the hormones, puberty blockers, etc. sue the fuck out of Big Pharma. But look how well Big Pharma has fought off serious class action lawsuits in the past. There will be some nice settlements, guaranteed, but there won't nearly be enough restitution for the child victims of the transgender movement. The money pharma, investors like Soros, etc. will have made off drug sales will be insane compared to the money they'll spend on legal issues.

But it did have a lot of churches behind it. Churches with a lot of money.

The only people taking those hormones and puberty blockers are the ones who really, desperately, want to live as the other gender. They have to go through numerous psychological tests to get them in order to make sure they really do want to change their gender, not to mention being told extensively what those drugs will do. It's not like they're just handing them out in schools.

It is not as if there is some unique expensive treatment for transgendered persons. They're the same hormones given to cisgendered people for different reasons. They are for the most part generic drugs with low profit margins. How is going after 1 in 2000 of the population going to make any company rich?
