Shupe also described how he went out to bars and sex clubs, cheating on his wife and leaving her and their daughter to fend for themselves. He's described his chaotic and abuse-filled childhood many times, as well as the rush to get estrogen during one of his fetish-filled manic episodes. When I wrote a comment about trans widows like myself and the abuse his wife is tolerating under a very strange youtube interview he gave, he wrote threatening comments in reply. He is a very disturbed man. If the mental health practitioners had created a clinically oriented lexicon, instead of taking dictation from sick men like Shupe, and changing the very description in the DSM manual, the psychiatric illness would be better identified and treated. I coined the term cross-sex ideation, a much more accurate descriptive term:

Twiss Butler and I agree about the urgent need for accurate language. We welcome cross-sex ideation into our lexicon. Thank you, Ute Heggen

In the same vein we appreciate your avoidance of the insidiously ambiguous word gender. In our analyses of the trans idea of changing legal sex, we strongly recommend not using gender in any way, shape, or form. https://www.equality4women.org/sex-change-law

I hope you will visit Ute Heggen youtube channel and help in my work to bring the suffering of wives and children of men who cross-dress as a persona to light. That is another phrase I use, "ideating a female persona." After decades of coercion to name my ex-husband, the father of my 2 sons as female and fielding his demands to be named some version of "mama," I have healed my mind immensely with accurate language. I am developing The Heggen Lexicon to this end.

I have many citations on this gargantuan medical fraud at uteheggengraswidow.wordpress.com

Hi Ute.

Your writing is inspiring. I'll check out your work -thank you.

For the moment. I just need a short, one-sentence answer, please.

It didn't say in your comment which DSM term you are replacing with "cross-sex ideation." Is it a replacement for "AGP," or....?

Please just fill in the blank:

"cross-sex ideation" replaces "_____________" (DSM term)

Thank you!

cross-sex ideation replaces gender dysphoric

Thank you!

I have been using the term "biophobic", but yours sounds more neutral.

What term do you use for gender-critical, please? Such as to distinguish between us and feminists who are captured? It's challenging conning up with these terms.

I tend not to call myself a feminist or radfem, as, similar to Kellie Jay Keen, I've found "feminists" are judgmental of women who spent time being the full time caregiver of children. I will say I'm gender critical, but I don't like the word "gender." I tend not to use a shorthand. I say I am a trans widow and I believe in biological reality of the two sexes, male and female. Thanks

I commend you for doing what must be gruelling and demoralizing work. I can barely stand to read it so I can't even imagine the strength and courage it takes to research and write it. Upgrading my subscription today out of respect for the work you do. Deeply grateful. I have a daughter and granddaughter as well as a son whose future will be nightmarish if we don't eradicate trans ideology.

This: A view "that embraces new technologies and does not limit human rights only to humans.”

Yes! That stood out to me, too. Actually, all of it stood out in this outstanding research and even-handed writing.

It is frightening that policies are being advocated for, and being adopted, that come from people who actually think it's a good idea to give robots and artificial intelligence rights equivalent to that of human's.

This is deep corruption in our government.

Governments need to know what to bin and when... Preferably before reading this "mince". What happens in the USA needs to stay over there as Scotland and the USA are completely different places with completely different societies and expectations.

I’m just always puzzled at the number of adults working on and supporting this project that have obviously forgotten their own childhoods completely. Are they ever even around children?

It’s also creepy as shit that they feel entitled to other people’s children, to do whatever they wish to their bodies and minds. Of course, if you’re actively working towards eliminating parents all together, you probably have zero compassion for all the broken families this ideology creates.
