Transgenderism in fish is caused by common human drugs and why should we care

Transgenderism in fish is caused by common human drugs and why should we care

Transgenderism or gender dysphoria is easily becoming a growing phenomenon is society, but what is causing children as young as two to say that they in the wrong body? The newly discovered transgender phenomenon in fish populations could explain what is could be happening to this generation. Here we discuss why we should care about recent reports that transgenderism in fish is caused by common human drugs.


This might be a delicate topic to talk about, but this is the moment to address transgenderism, since scientific research has linked the use of common human drugs, such as contraceptive pills to transgenderism in fish. Professor Charles Tyler, of the University of Exeter, was able to observe in his study that “…oestrogens found in some plastics affect the valves in the heart.”. Also, tests showed 20 per cent of male freshwater fish, such as roach, at 50 sites had feminine characteristics.”

So, the question that begs to be asked is: If transgenderism in fish is caused by common human drugs, what is it doing to our body and more importantly to the hormonal and genetic development of upcoming generations?

Here are some scientific studies about the connection between hormones, neurological development, gender and sexual behaviour

If you look into older reports about gender bending chemicals like estrogens, you will see that scientists have been warning that manmade pollutants, which have escaped into the environment, mimic the female sex hormone oestrogen. The males of species including fish, amphibians, birds, and reptiles have been feminised by exposure to sex hormone disrupting chemicals and have been found to be abnormally making egg yolk protein.

Interestingly, a study on the effects of estrogen on male mice, has found that while the reproductive system of male mice homozygous for a mutation in the estrogen receptor (ER) gene (ER knock-out; ERKO) appears normal at the anatomical level. These males are infertile, indicating an essential role for ER-mediated processes in the regulation of male reproduction. In addition to that, other studies have found a relationship between prenatal endocrine influences of gonadal steroids like testosterone, on sexual orientation and on sexually differentiated childhood behavior. For example: the impact of exposure to the hormone at the appropriate time can persist across the lifespan. These early, time-linked, persistent effects are thought to occur because hormones direct some aspects of neural development during early life, influencing cell survival, neuroanatomical connectivity and neurochemical specification.

While researches on human patients, have linked prenatal exposure to androgens to transgendersm in male to female transgenders. Other studies have observed that developing female rats with estradiol, or other estrogens, does not have feminizing effects, but the opposite. The effects of estrogens resemble those of testosterone, increasing male-typical sexual behavior and the volume of the SDN-POA, and reducing female-typical sexual behavior. Additional evidence that estrogen plays a role in neurobehavioral masculinisation early in life comes from evidence that blocking conversion of androgen to estrogen, or blocking estrogen receptors, has some of the same effects as castration, even in the presence of high levels of testosterone.

The effects of such chemicals, one can speculate, are so great at the moment, that there are parents that are insisting their newborn baby to be gender neutral in “its” birth certificate. The push to open up transgenderism into the minds of children seems to be growing in force, that even Milo Yiannopoulos, a conservative activist, who represents the LGBT movement, being himself a gay man, disagrees with the targeting of children about the topic of transgenderism and the normalization of it before children. He is perhaps questioning the recent projects popping up all over US where men dressed up as drag are encouraged to read child stories, pertaining to gender, for young children in libraries, and a 8 year old boy being raved about by the LGBT community, because he has “decided” to do drag queen shows at night clubs.

There are many questions that need to be asked by society and the scientific community about children who have gender dysphoria. Here are only 4 questions.

1) Is it the right thing to allow children who perhaps have been chemically castrated from the womb to undergo hormonal therapy, as they present symptoms of gender dysphoria given that little is known scientifically about this condition, and the World Health Organisation even classifies transgenderism as a mental illness, even though there is a much to declassify it as such?

Michelle Cretella, MD, president of the American College of Pediatricians has voiced her opinion about how fast parents are accepting their children to undergo hormonal therapy at a young age, even calling such practice as child abuse.

Cretella’s view is explained by statistics that show that 75 to 95 percent of gender-dysphoric youth are happy living in the sex they were born with once they pass through puberty.

2) If children have been chemically castrated by these environmental gender bending chemicals, but statistics show that as they grow they become happy with their gender. Should parents be using hormonal blockers to induce full on transition into the opposite sex?

3) Should transgenderism be proven to be linked to gender bending chemical pollutants, should the pharmaceutical industry compensate parents, given that more often than not, transgender individuals end up leading a life full of difficulties and regrets?

4) If you are reading this and are on the fence on this topic. Ask yourself this question: would you consume things or allow companies to pollute the environment if you knew this was going to affect our future generations biologically and neurologically?

So, if transgenderism in fish is caused by common human drugs and there is strong evidence that this could in fact impacting this generation, we should care. This should start a serious debate amongst the scientific community and society, because just normalizing something that could be detrimental to the future of humanity might not be the best way to go about it.
