アップデート&バンプ 本日11月27日にこのマーメイドのスージー・グリーン会長が辞任したとのニュースが入ってきた。Head of trans children charity Mermaids resigns after six years | Transgender | The Guardian.

グリーンは6年間マーメイドの会長を務めていた。グリーンは息子のジャックが16歳の時、イギリスでは違法だった性適合手術(去勢)を行うためにタイに連れ出して手術をさせた。息子のジャックは10歳くらいから思春期抑制剤を飲んでおり、ペニスは未発達であり、人口膣の形成のために必要な皮が足りないなどの支障が出ていた。

ツイッタラーの噂によると、今はジャッキーと名乗るグリーンの息子は過去7年間にわたるツイートを全部削除したそうだ。またスージー自身も、かなりの過去ログを消していると言う話。

最近、未成年への性転換治療が色々と批判的な目で見られるようになったことから考えても、マーメイドはかなり大きな方向変換をして生き延びようとしているのかもしれない。

数週間前にイギリスの未成年トランスジェンダー推進団体マーメイドが、トランスジェンダー概念に批判的な慈善事業団体LGBAlliance(LGBA LGB同盟)と、慈善事業審査委員会(the Charities Commission)を相手取って訴訟を起こした。マーメイド側はLGBAのトランスジェンダーを排除する姿勢が慈善事業としてふさわしくないものであり、LGBAの慈善事業資格は取り上げられるべきだと訴えていた。

ところが数日前、当のマーメイドが親に内緒で未成年少女たちに乳房を抑えるバインダーを配布していたこと、医療者としての資格のないスタッフが未成年に性転換に関するカウンセリングをしていたことなどが明るみに出て、マーメイド自身の慈善事業資格の見直しが行われるというどんでん返しが起きた。

さらにマーメイドはLGBA相手に訴訟を起こした際に列挙した役員のなかに、それまで公には知られていなかった幼児性愛者がはいっていたことがばれてしまい、その役員が辞任するという事態にまで発展。マーメイド側はこの役員が小児性愛者の学会で研究発表をしていたことは知らなかったと主張しているが、知らなかったで済まされるのかどうか疑問だ。

辞任した役員の名前はジェイコブ・ブレスロー博士。2011年に、ロンドン経済大学でジェンダー研究をしていた頃、アメリカのボルティモアで行われたBAU-ACTのイベントで自身の研究発表を行ったという。B4UーACTという団体は科学的に子供や未成年に魅力を感じる人々について研究する団体だ。

ブレスロー博士の研究はSexual Alignment: Critiquing Sexual Orientation, The Pedophile, and the DSM Vというタイトルで、一般的な小児性愛者に対する理解を批判する内容だった。彼の論文には、ペドフィリアの代わりに「未成年に魅かれる人」という意味のminor attracted person (MAP)という言葉が多く使われていたという。

本人が小児性愛・ペドフィリアについて研究していたからといって彼自身がペドだという証拠にはならないが、ペドを正当化しようとする団体主催にイベントでペドに同情的な研究発表をしたというのは非常に問題だ。本人もマーメイド側もそうと解っているからこそ今回の辞任という結論になったのだろう。

マーメイドの売りは未成年トランスジェンダーを擁護するというもので、その団体の役員に小児性愛者が混じっているのは単なる偶然だったのだろうか?

さらに本日、マーメイドで働くダレン・ミューという人がハウスマガジンというポルノ雑誌に載せた作品がツイッターに上がってきた。リンクはつけるがポルノ画像なのでリンクをたどる時は注意していただきたい。

なぜマーメイドにはこういうおかしな連中が集まるのだろうか?

マーメイドに限らないが、昨今のLGBT界隈の活動には子供の性的洗脳がとみに目立つ。幼稚園児に性的表現のあるドラアグショーを見せたり、小児性愛犯罪歴のあるドラアグの膝に子供を乗せてLGBT関連の本を読んできかせたり、プライドマーチで全裸の男が子供たちの前で踊ったりと、非常にあからさまな手懐け(グルーミング)が行われている。

LGBT界隈と特にトランスジェンダー活動家(TRA)は性に異常に固執している。先日もメキシコで初のトランスジェンダー(女性自認の男性)議員が自分のツイッターに自作ポルノ動画を載せたことで問題になっているが(リンクはつけない)、もし普通一般の政治家が自分が性行為をしている動画を誰もが観られる公共のソーシャルメディアに掲載したりしたら、即刻首になることは間違いない。にもかかわらず、トランスジェンダーなら、どんな卑猥なことをやっても許されるというのはどういうことなのか?

今までゲイやドラアグクィーンたちによる過激な性癖はごく一部の人々がうちうちにやっているものとして社会は容認していた。ゲイ男性同士の乱交は悪名高く、多くのゲイ男性が未成年を好むことも暗黙の了解だった。それが一般社会に影響を与えていないうちはほとんどの人は自分とは関係ない世界だとして無視していた。

しかし今やそれは無視できない状況となっている。

私はストーンウォールやマーメイドの寿命はあまり長くないと考えている。イギリスではすでに風向きが変わってきている。マーメイドの醜聞が後から後から聞こえてくるようになったのがその証拠だ。

アメリカ各地でも、州知事や議会が中心となって子供の性転換治療を禁止する動きが広まっている。保守派ポッドキャスターのマット・ウォルシは地元テネシー州の病院における治療を全面的に禁止すべく運動を始めている。

イギリスでもアメリカでも多くの人たちが目を覚まし始めたのだ。


1 response to イギリスの未成年トランス擁護団体マーメイド、次々に明るみにでる不祥事に大揺れ

The Mermaids boss was forced out amid a staff revolt including complaints that she was not transgender, The Telegraph can disclose, as a statutory inquiry is opened into the scandal-hit trans charity.

Susie Green suddenly stood down last week as chief executive of the embattled group after six years, with no interim boss in place and the move shrouded in secrecy.

A whistleblower has revealed disarray and anger within the charity’s Leeds and London offices.

The boss faced a staff backlash over her “incapable” leadership, culminating in a “nail in the coffin” report that trustees received last week.

The internal audit, launched earlier this year by the Social Justice Collective (SJC), a diversity group, is understood to be highly critical of Ms Green’s handling of complaints of racism, safeguarding, the vetting of trustees and her “shoving her head in the sand”.

The charity, the UK’s largest for trans children, has received taxpayer funding and runs training in the NHS, schools and police forces, as well as online forums for gender-distressed children.
While campaigners have long raised concerns about the group’s “unfettered access to children” and support of gender-affirming healthcare, those inside it have never spoken out until now.

Shocked staff were hauled into an “emergency meeting” on Friday with Dr Belinda Bell, the chair of trustees, and told Ms Green was gone and her replacement “needs strong EDI (equality, diversity and inclusion) experience, ideally lived experience”, with some staff believing this means being transgender.
The group has endured an exodus of staff, with “upset” among some junior transgender staff who alleged they were “treated like children” by Ms Green and their complaints “fell on deaf ears”.

It is understood that some staff felt it insufficient that Ms Green, a former IT manager, was leading a trans charity but not transgender herself. They felt her only link was her child, Jackie Green, who had a gender reassignment operation at the age of 16.

On Friday, the Charity Commission escalated its probe into Mermaids by launching its highest level of statutory investigation “due to newly identified issues about the charity’s governance and management”.

On Friday night, MPs demanded that “lessons be learned”.

The regulator’s inquiries into safeguarding concerns began in September when a Telegraph investigation found it was agreeing to send potentially dangerous chest-binding devices to 14-year-olds against their parents’ wishes.

The fiasco deepened when Dr Jacob Breslow was forced to stand down as a Mermaids trustee in October after it emerged he spoke at the B4U-ACT conference in 2011, a group which promotes support for paedophiles.

The whistleblower told The Telegraph: “A lot of new board members came in who were Susie’s friends, no one really knew they were there, which was an added shock when the whole Jacob stuff happened.

“We had a staff call then, [Mermaids said] ‘staff can drop in and say what they’re feeling’. Susie wasn’t on that call and there were a lot of staff asking for accountability and who dropped the ball but no one really got answers for it.

“People were very frustrated then around Susie’s lack of being on the ball with staff and talking to staff about what happened, and shoving her head in the sand without giving answers to anyone.

“More recently there’s been scandal after scandal after scandal at Mermaids, and a lot of them are like ‘well why hasn’t Mermaids done its due diligence of Jacob or their background checks on staff’. There’s clearly been some failure.”
Mermaids has also launched the first legal challenge of its kind seeking to strip LGB Alliance, a same-sex group critical of gender ideology, of its charitable status. This left some staff “confused as to why Mermaids was taking it on,” the source said.

Of Mermaids’s ten trustees, half were appointed last summer alone. It is understood that eight out of 44 staff have left in the past two months, half of them transgender and many of them junior managers or officers.

An insider also claimed three out of around five people of colour in the charity have left this year.

The whistleblower claimed: “One of the big issues with Susie was she is incapable of being self-reflective, so when anyone took any complaints to her it would fall on deaf ears because she was unwilling to have anything at fault, even when it was ways of suggesting how handling things could be improved, it would be like you’re attacking her and not attacking Mermaids.

“A lot of junior staff, especially trans ones, were the ones left on the sidelines and almost treated like we were children. Some people had put in complaints. More junior staff, the younger trans people who you’d hope an organisation for trans young people would support, are the ones most dissatisfied at how it’s being run. They were getting treated the worst.”

On Friday night, a Mermaids spokesman confirmed: “Earlier this year Mermaids decided to carry out a frank and honest appraisal of our internal culture and how we measure up in terms of equity, diversity and inclusion.

“As part of this process, we commissioned an independent external report which highlighted a number of significant challenges for us.

“We know we must do better and we are absolutely committed to doing so for our staff and our service users. We will be implementing the report’s recommendations as a priority.”
Earlier this year, The Telegraph also uncovered evidence that Mermaids’ online help centre was offering advice to users who present themselves as young as 13 that controversial hormone-blocking drugs are safe and “totally reversible”.

In one month alone, there were discussions in the charity’s moderated forum for 12 to 15-year-olds on how to raise money to start taking drugs and the best way to take testosterone. Discussions of breast binders on Mermaids’ Youth Forum have dated back to 2019.

The whistleblower claimed that Mermaids’ forums are “outdated” with 1990s-style forums and “the way it goes about safeguarding, the way it interacts with young people, really needs to be modernised”.

The Charity Commission said it has not received “necessary reassurance or [been] satisfied” that there has not been “serious systemic failing in the charity’s governance and management”. A report will be produced in due course.

On Friday night, Miriam Cates, a Tory MP and member of the Commons education committee, told The Telegraph: “It is clear that Mermaids has been responsible for multiple safeguarding breaches – including encouraging children to harm their own bodies – which is why I called in Parliament for a criminal inquiry.

“It is important to let the Commission get on with the investigation, but at the same time, we should urgently consider how Mermaids has for so long been allowed unfettered access to vulnerable children, been funded by taxpayer cash and promoted by celebrities despite multiple warnings from whistleblowers. We must learn lessons“It is important to let the Commission get on with the investigation, but at the same time, we should urgently consider how Mermaids has for so long been allowed unfettered access to vulnerable children, been funded by taxpayer cash and promoted by celebrities despite multiple warnings from whistleblowers. We must learn lessons from this failure of safeguarding.”

Baroness Nicholson of Winterbourne, a Tory peer, said: “The Charity Commission reports to the House of Commons so the legless Mermaids have no escape. They cannot wriggle out now.”

Mermaids’ interim chief executive job advert, on an £80,0000 salary, says Mermaids is “looking for someone who is experienced to lead a culture change piece, is strong on EDI” and an expert in “people management”. Its trustee brief says trustees have “collective and joint responsibilities”.

Mermaids was run by volunteers until 2016 when Ms Green, who took her child to Thailand for a gender reassignment operation, became its first staff member. It has previously been supported by Emma Watson, the actor, and the Duke of Sussex and given National Lottery funding.
