As there are wild astral tales about quasi-illegal transgender experiments to make hardened criminals unable to rape, hence releasable from prison … and by the by a better get-by-the-border-stations should they turn to drug running … I did some research on transgender …
Transgender Suicide Attempts and Self Mutilation Incidence
Here are a few things I just found out: A 2016 study pegged the suicide attempt rate among transgender youth at 30%, and the incidence of self-mutilation such as cutting at 42% …

There are more statistics on transgender suicide attempts here:

Recent Murders of Transgender Women
According to Wikipedia, this is on the rise. There were nearly 60 such murders worldwide in 2017 …

Putative Prison Transgender Felon Release Experiments
These times are forecast to include cognitive dysfunction, and we can anticipate this may take various twists and turns, including …
- quasi-Illegal or else ‘out there’, ‘cutting edge’ human social experiments,
- and a panicky or anxious sense of urgency about the need for them, despite scant outcomes research,
These types of human social experiments may be a symptom of the cognitive dissonance for those facing anxiety attacks while in leadership positions.
There are several caveats in the above putative cases:
- There is the danger to their life that transgender felons would face on being released from prison, due to social violence, as well as self-inflicted violence
- There is the danger to the health of the patient, unless the operation is performed by a qualified surgeon
- There is a possible criminal penalty for the person performing the operation, if he or she is not qualified, or if the operation is illegal in his state
- And there is an element of coercion in the idea that a hardened felon can only be released from prison if they agree to mutilation of their bodies
Comparing Such Putative Modern-Day Experiments with Nazi Human Experimentation
My own feeling is that those considering social experiments in these times, especially quasi-illegal social experiments, might wish to compare their plans for bold social change with the Nazi human experiments undertaken during the Third Reich …
Link: “Nazi human experimentation,” in Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazi_human_experimentation ..
The Nuremberg Code, and Modern-Day Lessons from the Nuremberg Trials
I took a look at the Nuremberg code, and in hasty perusal judge that the type of experiment described above violates that code … See if you agree …
Link: “Nuremberg Code,” in Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuremberg_Code ..
It was because the Nazi war criminals broke the Nuremberg Code that they were brought to trial between 1945 and 1949 …
Link: “Nuremberg Trials,” http://www.history.com/topics/world-war-ii/nuremberg-trials ..
Thus, it seems possible that quasi-illegal or ‘boldly on the edge’ human social experiments run the risk of being tried by the United States Justice System, or by the International Court of Justice, as violating the Nuremberg Code, and as violating social standards of justice for humankind.
Consequentialism and Societal Expectations
Consequentialists feel that a good cause makes the use of any means … even morally ‘bad’ means … acceptable. But historically, society takes a dim view of this. The societal backlash for those espousing Consequentialism has, in times past, been quite severe.
Hence, the Nuremberg Trials, which dealt every harshly with the idealistic notions that the Nazis had of building a great world order on the backs of those they deemed genetic rejects and sent to their deaths in prison camps.
Even so it might be today; as one brilliant Consequentialist notion after another hits the fast-moving fan of societal notions of the tried and true.
On Sinking to Feral Instincts in the Name of a Better World Order
In addition to the above, one might consider whether one’s actions, during the Ascension process, are largely humanitarian in nature, or whether they may be jumping the gun, or even whether they may involve … or be perceived as involving … the uncaging and expression of one’s own feral instincts …
- such as the desire to project fear onto others; to make others fearful, so as to feel less fearful oneself
- or the desire to prove one’s manhood by emasculating other men viewed as predatory and dangerous
On Sticking with the Tried and True
Why not stick with the tried and true for now? Why not stick together, as one loving, world community? Why act out our fears and our savage instincts? Why listen to the left brain at all, during these times? When we can let intuition lead us through every peril, and grace preserve us and all those we love, in joy and peace, and Light?
While most likely irrelevant, this background reading sparked my imagination …

Homeboy Industries Founder Fr. Gregory Boyle Attends Gay Marriage, Transgender, and Unchaste Sex Congress Hosted by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles
I remembered my next-door neighbor Gale Feldman, M.P.H., in the apartment building I lived in in Santa Monica for 20 years, had a job placing ex-felons for Homeboy Industries, so, out of curiosity, I looked them up ...
LInk: “Homeboy Staff,” by Homeboy Industries,” https://www.homeboyindustries.org/life-at-homeboy/staff/ … Founder of Homeboy Industries is Fr. Gregory Boyle, S.J.
As I recall, some long years ago, I went to a lecture by Catholic Fr. Gregory Boyle of Homeboy Industries, at my next-door neighbor’s request. His talk was inspiring; he is a warm-hearted, dynamic speaker.

I read in the article that Fr. Greg Boyle … possibly the same person as above? … is a repeated guest.
