Unraveling the Many Layers of Pride

By The Sharp Edge

It’s easy to see that the culture war taking over the West, under the banner of pride, represents much more than diversity, equity, inclusion, sexual preference, or gender identity.  Unraveling the many layers of pride may reveal how much deeper it goes. 

Social Engineering

On the surface, it’s clear that we have been inundated with pride propaganda from every angle.  Though the symbol of pride claims to represent the marginalized and oppressed, this cultural revolution has the full endorsement of nearly every mainstream media outlet, social media site, major corporation, financial institution, government agency, intergovernmental organization, medical establishment, and educational institution.  

This synchronized operation claiming tolerance for outsiders, has relentlessly forced its way into every aspect of society with zero tolerance for criticism of the established narrative, effectively creating a new class of outcasts.  Those who dare to diverge from acceptable groupthink are marked as “hateful,” “homophobic” or “transphobic.”  A campaign so coordinated can only be described as social engineering designed to program and indoctrinate the population into compliance and conformity, particularly for the most vulnerable among us – the children.

Though the fallout has been severe, the effectiveness of this social engineering program is beginning to wear off and a counter movement is building.  Parents continue to speak out at school boards.  Kids are rebelling against pride indoctrination.  And pride campaigns for Bud Light, Target and other companies have received severe backlash from the public.

Rise of Mental Illness

Delving deeper, the impacts of social engineering and psychological warfare become clear.  Rates of depression in the United States have reached new highs, especially for women and young people.  Suicide and homicide rates among youth have climbed to a 20-year high.  And contrary to the established narrative, allowing minors access to gender treatments without parental consent may actually increase youth suicides, as one study shows.

Coupled with the spike in mental illnesses, gender dysphoria diagnoses are dramatically on the rise.  As many as 70% or more of adolescents diagnosed with gender dysphoria were previously diagnosed with mental illnesses.  New diagnoses of kids ages 6 to 17 nearly tripled in the U.S. from 2017 to 2021. The number of new diagnoses for children in the U.S. in 2021 alone saw a 70% spike over the previous year.  The world’s largest pediatric gender clinic, the Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS) at the Tavistock in Britain, saw a 5000% jump in gender dysphoric teenage girls over a seven year period.  High numbers of children diagnosed with gender dysphoria at Tavistock had histories of sexual abuse.  And Tavistock buried their research findings that around 35% of their gender dysphoric patients exhibited “moderate or severe autistic traits.”

Multibillion Dollar Medicalization Industry

Drilling down further, it becomes evident who stands to gain from the rise in gender dysphoria diagnoses.  There are billions to be made by funneling children and adults into lifelong medicalization programs involving endless rounds of drugs and surgeries.  The estimated market value of sex reassignment surgeries in the U.S. reached 2.1 billion dollars in 2022, with projections climbing to 5 billion dollars by 2030.  The number of gender clinics treating children in the United States expanded from zero to over 100 in the past 15 years.  Planned Parenthood has quickly become a leader in the gender transition industry, offering services in 239 clinics across the country in 2022.  Money is clearly a motive for this disturbing trend, but to say it is the “root” of this evil would deny how much deeper it goes.

Coercion, Manipulation & Lies

A deeper look reveals that the swelling numbers of transitioning youth are due, in part, to authorities and medical institutions forcing compliance of doctors, under threat of retribution, for “medically necessary” transgender treatments deemed to be “safe and effective” for mental healthcare and suicide prevention.

Scores of activists posing as medical professionals ignore underlying mental health issues and rubber-stamp gender dysphoria letters so that confused young people may receive transgender treatments covered by insurance.

This industry built on manipulation and lies targets the most vulnerable, the young and mentally unwell.  Parents are often emotionally blackmailed to believe that they must go along with the program, or they will be responsible for their child’s suicide.  Patients are offered only one solution which promises to be a “cure” to their mental health issues through a lifetime of barbaric and dangerous treatments.  Patients aren’t informed of the studies that found about 80% to 95% of gender dysphoric kids desist following puberty, or that transgender people are 19 times more likely than their peers to commit suicide years after surgery.  They’re not warned about the irreversible damage to their bodies, or the growing number of detransitioners plagued with regret, which may be about 30% in the U.S. by some estimations, a rate much higher than the 1% rate of regret that patients are often told.

Detransitioners are awakening to the lies that left them horrifically mutilated, scarred, and sterilized.  Lawsuits are mounting against those who fostered the abuse.  Mired in scandal and lawsuits, the world’s largest pediatric gender clinic at the Tavistock is shutting down.  Health authorities in the UK, Finland, Sweden and Norway have put severe restrictions on hormonal interventions for gender dysphoric patients.  And legislation in U.S. states to protect minors from dangerous transgender drugs and surgeries is gaining momentum, setting new records in 2023.

Eugenics, Sterilization & Depopulation

While this awakening offers a glimmer of hope for the future, we can’t ignore an even darker agenda lurking beneath.  Some organizations, institutions, and states that are deeply involved in the sterilization of gender dysphoric children, have histories steeped in eugenics, depopulation, and social engineering. 

One of the leading advocates for gender transitions, Planned Parenthood, was literally founded upon the ideas of eugenics, sterilization and depopulation of “the unfit,” which included the mentally ill.  The Tavistock Clinic has also recently been accused of practicing eugenics through monstrous gender transitions of children with disabilities and mental illnesses.  Yet, the clinic’s well-documented history of social engineering, psychological warfare, and mind control, in connection with the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations, rarely enters the current transgender conversation.  And California, a sanctuary state for the sterilization of gender dysphoric children was also the leading state to force sterilizations on 20,000 “undesirable” members of society, many of whom suffered from mental illnesses.  California’s eugenical sterilization program was so effective, that the Nazi’s “modeled their law on California’s law.”  The language may have changed over time to brainwash the public into believing it’s an empowering human right, nonetheless an agenda to sterilize “undesirable” members of society has remained.

Normalization of Pedophilia

As we continue to unravel the many layers of pride, we are faced with the realization of another sinister motive – the normalization of pedophilia.  Concepts of gender theory, sexuality of children, and commonly used terms within the pride movement, are based on the works of fraudsters and quacks who promoted pedophilia.

The father of modern gender theory, John Money, sexually abused children in his experiments.  Money, whose gender theory has been widely adopted based on completely falsified claims of his experiments’ success, openly advocated for the normalization of pedophilia through his work on “chronophilia” which described sexual attraction between different age groups including children.  He promoted the “unrestricted enjoyment of erotica and sex in childhood,” and stated that pornographic images should be used in sex education for children.

The father of the sexual revolution, Alfred Kinsey, was a sadistic bi-sexual, who facilitated the sexual abuse of children and infants as young as 5 months old as part of his “scientific” studies to support his theory that children are sexual beings from birth.  His “research,” designed to mainstream sexual deviancy and undermine traditional sexual norms, was based on data collected from sexual psychopaths, imprisoned sex offenders, and prostitutes.  Kinsey’s abusive and fraudulent work provided the foundation for sex education programs today.

Even the origins of the terms “cis” and “cisgender,” which is considered by some to be a slur against straight people, can be attributed to a German pedophile enabler and sexologist by the name of Volkmar Sigusch, who claimed “The sensuality that unfolds spontaneously between a child and an adult is something beautiful,” adding that “There is nothing wrong with pedophilia in the sense of the word, that is, with liking, even loving children.  It only becomes problematic when the power imbalance between the child and the adult is exploited by the adult pedosexual.” Sigusch and other sociologists and psychologists influenced criminal law reform in Germany in their 1970 testimony before Parliament, in which they “declared that children would not suffer from sexual relations with adults and that those relations should not be punished, because they are a ‘crime without a victim.’” 

Their theories on sexualizing children and normalizing pedophilia are creeping into therapy, academia, schoolbooks, classrooms, and sex education programs for young children today.

Destabilization of National, Societal & Family Structures

As we untangle the twisted scheme underpinning the banner of pride, a plan to destabilize national, societal, and family structures emerges.  In their place, a totalitarian global governance is rising, imposing allegiance to a blend of neo-Marxist and fascist ideologies.  Mandates handed down by unelected globalists in the name of “diversity, equity, and inclusion” force captured agencies, institutions, and corporations to fall in line.  This insidious ideology promises that “You’ll own nothing. And you’ll be happy,” while, under the symbol of pride, your kids become “our kids.”

Authoritarians united under this destructive ideology seek to strip the rights of parents and deliver control of children to the state.  In some places, this is already becoming a reality.

Hiding behind “diversity, equity, and inclusion,” the global totalitarian regime taking form seeks to destroy all challenges to its authority, including national sovereignty, traditional values, family bonds, and – above all – faith, as it aims to become the ultimate power, the ultimate parent, and the ultimate overlord.

Subversion of Faith

After all the layers have been stripped away, the true essence of this culture war is laid bare.  At its center, this is a spiritual battle for the soul of every nation, man, woman, and child.

The revolution taking over the West aims to subvert traditional faiths, invert spiritual beliefs, and in their place, manifest a cult of pride.  Their zealots mock deeply held religious beliefs, demand conversion to their cult, and condemn disbelievers as heretics.

After the many layers of pride are peeled away, a simple truth comes to light.  Though pride has been rebranded as a virtue, for thousands of years it has been regarded as a deadly sin that goes before disgrace, destruction, and a fall.

    Excellent and superb compilation of “Pride” stuff.
    The purpose of the movement is to shatter the minds of children, not money which is the juice to make it happen.
    However, I notice that you do not say “Christian” values and use a amorphous meaningless word like “faith” (although your examples do). This is an anti-Christian thing pure and simple.
    Kinsey, et al are Jewish. Freud, Bernaise and psychology are Jewish. “Racism” and anti-Semitism are Jewish pushed terms. (The word holocost wasn’t even invented until 1970!) High profile Jewish people have claimed that abortion is a Jewish right. There is a pattern here.
    If you would read chapter 23 of The Authoritarian Personality written by the heirs of the Tavistock and Frankfurt Schools post WWII in the 1940s you will see the method and the goal of all of this: To eliminate the family and Christian values and to do it with “Eros” and “propaganda” on the sly supposedly to stop fascism. A common method to subdue a conquered people like Germany is to pump in pornography. This became the game plan to where we are today in the US.
    Until you define the target succinctly, you are not going to hit and destroy it.
    Great article otherwise..

    Thank you for being courageous. Because as your article notes, you will be seen as the bad guy! In reality, you are telling the truth and not only backing it up with facts but communicating it in such a way that is easy to understand.
    “Thank you” will never be enough because your hard work is priceless. But such as it is from the bottom of my heart, Thank you.
