A new report shows that activists, billionaires, drug companies, and big medicine have generated a $400 million dollar network to push the transgender agenda on America.
Funding for this agenda has increased nearly eight times over the last decade.
However, very little of this money seems to be going to those who are part of the LGTB community, with most of the funds used solely for political advocacy and public relations work.
It’s apparent that this group is working actively to fund a movement that will create a fundamental and conceptual change in culture. In other words, normalize transgenderism.
Feminist Jennifer Bilek writes a report exposing that a majority of this funding comes from rich, white men, who carry powerful influence in the transgender movement.
In her report, she builds her case as to why she finds this so upsetting:
“I have watched as all-women’s safe spaces, universities, and sports opened their doors to any man who chose to identify as a woman.
Whereas men who identify as transwomen are at the forefront of this project, women who identify as transmen seem silent and invisible.
I was astonished that such a huge cultural change as the opening of sex-protected spaces was happening at such a meteoric pace and without consideration for women and girls’ safety, deliberation, or public debate.”
But, she does an excellent job of tracking the money:
“I found exceedingly rich, white men with enormous cultural influence are funding the transgender lobby and various transgender organizations.
These include but are not limited to Jennifer Pritzker (a male who identifies as transgender); George Soros; Martine Rothblatt (a male who identifies as transgender and transhumanist); Tim Gill(a gay man); Drummond Pike; Warren and Peter Buffett; Jon Stryker (a gay man); Mark Bonham (a gay man); and Ric Weiland (a deceased gay man whose philanthropy is still LGBT-oriented).
Most of these billionaires fund the transgender lobby and organizations through their own organizations, including corporations.”
Her angst seems not towards the ideology of the LGTB community, but instead that it’s most powerful lobbying and financial influence comes from the hands of men.
The transgender ideology is being covertly funded by a network of wealthy transgender donors and a variety of investors in the drug, surgery and healthcare industries, says Jenifer Bilek, a New York-based feminist.
Bilek tracked the flow of pro-transgender funding via donors and business groups, and she argues more than $400 million has been spent to promote the claim that men can switch their “gender” to become legal women whenever they want to do so.
That gender-trumps-biology demand requires government to silence women when men who claim they are women parade into women’s’ bathrooms and showers, sports contests and civic groups, or into fashion and status displays or into feminist advocacy groups.
Bilek makes it clear her concerns are mostly about feminist transgender ideology. She ignores the side effects of men who undergo a sex change, both physically and psychologically.
She is upset that men can claim to identify as women and compete in female sports, providing an undeniable advantage, as was seen by Mack Beggs who just won the “girls” 6A wrestling title for the second-time last week.
The New York Post reported:
“CYPRESS, Texas — For the second year in a row, a transgender wrestler has won the Texas girls’ Class 6A 110-pound division.
Mack Beggs, an 18-year-old senior from Euless Trinity High School near Dallas, entered the tournament in Cypress outside Houston with an undefeated record. He beat
Beggs is in the process of transitioning from female to male and taking a low dose of testosterone.”
Bilek does go on to highlight the bigger dangers the transgender agenda poses to children and society as a whole.
“The ideology also requires that men keep quiet when women claim they are men, and demands that parents and doctors, reporters, researchers and surgeons all stay silent in face of growing evidence that the ideology and associated medical treatments are hazardous to the subjects’ lifetime physical health and to personal stability.
Overall reported global spending on LGBT is now estimated at $424 million. From 2003-2013, reported funding for transgender issues increased more than eightfold, growing at threefold the increase of LGBTQ funding overall, which quadrupled from 2003 to 2012.
This huge spike in funding happened at the same time transgenderism began gaining traction in American culture …
Much more important than funds going directly to the LGBT lobby and organizations, only a fraction of which trickles down to assist people who identify as transgender, is the money invested by the men mentioned above, governments, and technology and pharmaceutical corporations to institutionalize and normalize transgenderism as a lifestyle choice.
They are shaping the narrative about transgenderism and normalizing it within the culture using their funding methods …
[Promoting] Bodily diversity appears to be the core issue, not [treating] gender dysphoria; that and unmooring people from their biology via language distortions, to normalize altering human biology.
Institutionalizing transgender ideology does just this. This ideology is being promoted as a civil rights issue by wealthy, white, men with enormous influence who stand to personally benefit from their political activities.
The transgender ideology demands that the federal government force Americans to accept the “gender identity” sex-switching claims made by each person, regardless of scientific data about genetics, biology, and the variety of normal behavior and appearances shown by normal, equal, different, and complementary women and men, boys and girls.
The progressive push to bend Americans’ attitudes and their male-and-female civic society around the idea of “gender” has already attacked and cracked popular social rules for how Americans handle the many useful, charming or fairness-related differences between complementary women and men.
These pro-gender claims have an impact on different-sex bathrooms, K-12 curricula, university speech codes, religious freedoms, free speech, civic ceremonies, school rules, law enforcement, and children’s sexual privacy.
While Ms. Bilek’s report sheds a great deal of light as to the funding of the transgender movement, and points out the inherent unfairness of males who are “transitioning” competing in female sport, she misses the profound moral problems with the transgender movement.
