NB Commentary. For you Internet sleuths who want to know the truth and are willing to burn a little midnight oil, here are some links. These are the links that I used in my research on the “Michelle Obama Is a Man” meme. I have uncovered some valuable information and I am sure that you will find this information quite compelling.
I have placed link here from both sides of the spectrum, pros and cons. Please look into them yourself and don’t just take my word for it. You may feel you are going down a rabbit hole, but this is exactly what this type of disinformation will have you doing. Happy Trails!!!
This week, TIME Magazine placed Cox on its cover, making her the first transgender woman to accomplish this feat, and published a riveting interview with her on race, gender and bullying. Here are the highlights from Cox’s interview and below, a behind the scenes video of Cox as she prepares for her historic cover.
One of the reasons we have Black run ones such as the Miss Black Universe, Duval and the other Black transgender pageant systems is because the negative African-American beauty perceptions that were espoused by this person are sadly part of the dominant culture. The end result is a perception in our GLBT subset of it that results in Black transwomen not getting fair shakes in judging when they compete in predominately white GLBT pageants.
The fact that ChristWire isn’t a sincere Christian web forum has been a difficult lesson for the mainstream media to learn—especially NBC and its affiliates. The Atlantic Wire first outed ChristWire last July, when NBC’s New York and Los Angeles affiliates published an article about the Christian right boycotting actor Bill Murray. NBC’s Drew Magary linked to a ChristWire article calling Murray a “murderer of lambs” and a “fatal disease” to America’s children. The article’s author? Stephenson Billings. Maybe the company should flag this guy in its employee handbook.
Is this true? Not likely. I have been unable to find any proof that a Michael LaVaughn Robinson even existed, and there is reasonable proof that Michelle LaVaughn Robinson (later Obama after marriage) has existed. Furthermore, there is no proof of a Michael Robinson playing linebacker for the Oregon State Beavers in 1981 or 1982. Conspiracy theory debunked. It’s not true
NB Commentary:Okay People for those of you who believe that Michael LaVaughn Robinson underwent sex reassignment surgery at John Hopkins Hospital, in 1983, I will read a short clip from an article written in The News-Letter on May 1, 2014. Just so we can debunk the Christwire.org article that said that Michael Lavaughn Robinson was a football player at Oregon State University and after sex change surgery, at John Hopkins Hopkins, in 1983, legally changed his name to Michelle Robinson. Maybe this little tidbit will help quell the noise.
In 1965, the Hopkins Hospital became the first academic institution in the United States to perform sex reassignment surgeries. Now also known by names like genital reconstruction surgery and sex realignment surgery, the procedures were perceived as radical and attracted attention from The New York Times and tabloids alike. But they were conducted for experimental, not political, reasons. Regardless, as the first place in the country where doctors and researchers could go to learn about sex reassignment surgery, Hopkins became the model for other institutions.
But in 1979, Hopkins stopped performing the surgeries and never resumed.
In the 1960s, the idea to attempt the procedures came primarily from psychologist John Money and surgeon Claude Migeon, who were already treating intersex children, who, often due to chromosome variations, possess genitalia that is neither typically male nor typically female. Money and Migeon were searching for a way to assign a gender to these children, and concluded that it would be easiest if they could do reconstructive surgery on the patients to make them appear female from the outside. At the time, the children usually didn’t undergo genetic testing, and the doctors wanted to see if they could be brought up female.
“[Money] raised the legitimate question: ‘Can gender identity be created essentially socially?’ … Nurture trumping nature,” said Chester Schmidt, who performed psychiatric exams on the surgery candidates in the 60s and 70s.
This theory ended up backfiring on Money, most famously in the case of David Reimer, who was raised as a girl under the supervision of Money after a botched circumcision and later committed suicide after years of depression.
However, at the time, this research led Money to develop an interest in how gender identities were formed. He thought that performing surgery to match one’s sex to one’s gender identity could produce better results than just providing these patients with therapy.
“Money, in understanding that gender was — at least partially — socially constructed, was open to the fact that [transgender] women’s minds had been molded to become female, and if the mind could be manipulated, then so could the rest of the body,” Dana Beyer, Executive Director of Gender Rights Maryland, who came to Hopkins to consider the surgery in the 70s, wrote in an email to The News-Letter.
Surgeon Milton Edgerton, who was the head of the University’s plastic surgery unit, also took an interest in sex reassignment surgery after he encountered patients requesting genital surgery. In 2007, he told Baltimore Style: “I was puzzled by the problem and yet touched by the sincerity of the request.”
Edgerton’s curiosity and his plastic surgery experience, along with Money’s interest in psychology and Migeon’s knowledge of plastic surgery, allowed the three to form a surgery unit that incorporated other Hopkins surgeons at different times. With the University’s approval, they started performing sex reassignment surgeries and created the Gender Identity Clinic to investigate whether the surgeries were beneficial.
“This program, including the surgery, is investigational,” plastic surgeon John Hoopes, who was the head of the Gender Identity Clinic, told The New York Times in 1966. “The most important result of our efforts will be to determine precisely what constitutes a transsexual and what makes him remain that way.”
To determine if a person was an acceptable candidate for surgery, patients underwent a psychiatric evaluation, took gender hormones and lived and dressed as their preferred gender. The surgery and hospital care cost around $1500 at the time, according to The New York Times.
Beyer found the screening process to be invasive when she came to Hopkins to consider the surgery. She first heard that Hopkins was performing sex reassignment surgeries when she was 14 and read about them in Time and Newsweek.
“That was the time that I finally was able to put a name on who I was and realized that something could be done,” she said. “That was a very important milestone in my consciousness, in understanding who I was.”
When Beyer arrived at Hopkins, the entrance forms she had to fill out were focused on sexuality instead of sexual identity. She says she felt as if they only wanted to consider hyper-feminine candidates for the surgery, so she decided not to stay. She had her surgery decades later in 2003 in Trinidad, Colo.
“It was so highly sexualized, which was not at all my experience, certainly not the reason I was going to Hopkins to consider transition, that I just got up and left, I didn’t want anything to do with it,” she said. “No one said this explicitly, but they certainly implied it, that the whole purpose of this was to get a vagina so you could be penetrated by a penis.”
Beyer thinks that it was very important that the transgender community had access to this program at the time. However, she thinks that the experimental nature of the program was detrimental to its longevity.
“It had negative consequences because when it was done it was clearly experimental,” she said. “Our opponents were able to use the experimental nature of the surgery in the 60s and the 70s against us.”
By the mid-70s, fewer patients were being operated on, and many changes were made to the surgery and psychiatry departments, according to Schmidt, who was also a founder of the Sexual Behaviors Consultation Unit (SBCU) at the time. The new department members were not as supportive of the surgeries.
In 1979, SBCU Chair Jon Meyer conducted a study comparing 29 patients who had the surgery and 21 who didn’t, and concluded that those who had the surgery were not more adjusted to society than those who did not have the surgery. Meyer told The New York Times in 1979: “My personal feeling is that surgery is not proper treatment for a psychiatric disorder, and it’s clear to me that these patients have severe psychological problems that don’t go away following surgery.”
After Meyer’s study was published, Paul McHugh, the Psychiatrist-in-Chief at Hopkins Hospital who never supported the University offering the surgeries according to Schmidt, shut the program down.
This video is Part 10 in a series of short videos called
“Is Michelle Obama A Man?”
NB Commentary:From the introduction through to where it all began, I have attempted to shed some light on this subject by giving a historical framework of how the Black community 50 years ago would have dealt with homosexuality and the transgender phenomenon. I hope that the information I have revealed will suggest to people who believe this meme, that quite possibly they have been hoodwinked and that from here on out they will be more circumspect in coming to conclusions about things or at least will take the time to research the source of the information so as to avoid being “Hoodwinked” as the writer of this story along with many other writers, reporters and journalist from various news outlets have done since the beginning of the concept of “telling a story” or “spreading the news.”
I want to sum it up with a few more statements, beginning with the difference between transsexual and transgender phenomenon and end this series with my concluding remarks.
Transsexuals are people who transition from one sex to another. A person born as a male can become recognizably female through the use of hormones and/or surgical procedures; and a person born as a female can become recognizably male. That said, transsexuals are unable to change their genetics and cannot acquire the reproductive abilities of the sex to which they transition. Sex is assigned at birth and refers to a person’s biological status as male or female. In other words, sex refers exclusively to the biological features: chromosomes, the balance of hormones, and internal and external anatomy. Each of us is born as either male or female, with rare exceptions of those born intersex who may display characteristics of both sexes at birth.
Transgender, unlike transsexual, is a term for people whose identity, expression, behavior, or general sense of self does not conform to what is usually associated with the sex they were born in the place they were born. It is often said sex is a matter of the body, while gender occurs in the mind. Gender is an internal sense of being male, female, or other. People often use binary terms, for instance, masculine or feminine, to describe gender just as they do when referring to sex. But gender is more complex and encompasses more than just two possibilities. Gender also is influenced by culture, class, and race because behavior, activities, and attributes seen as appropriate in one society or group may be viewed otherwise in another.
Let me conclude by saying.
There has certainly been a lot of mystery around the Obama’s. That stands to reason without any doubt whatsoever. Several reports in the media across the board have pointed out the varying issues and concerns that shrouded the Obama Administration and it’s foreign policy of war theaters in 7 countries, tentacles stretching into their connection to the Clintons’ and John Podesta, Fast & Furious, Michelle’s horrid lunch program, Obama Care, Malia smoking weed and even the so-called elaborate vacations they took on the taxpayers’ dime.
I am certainly no fan of the Obama’s as I question anyone who would want to be the President of this corrupt country, no matter who they are. But I particularly don’t understand why anyone Black would put themselves in the position to receive the most extreme expression of racism white supremacy as they would in a role of Leader over a predominately white population that has historically been the most racist group of white folks on the planet.
However, the idea that Michelle Obama is a man is patently ludicrous when you are given more than a parroted news story found in tabloids around the internet.
I hope that this long video has brought some clarity to whomever chose to stay with me as I pulled my thoughts and research together to make this presentation and I hope that, while there me be ten thousand other things we can pull out of the closet to expose the Obama’s about, I hope that we can all agree that this right here, is not one of them.
Let’s put this one to rest and find something more productive to do with our time and energy. Without a doubt the “Michelle Psyops” has taken its place among the many false flags perpetrated on the American people for many, many years, and with the advent of the Internet and access by so many, to YouTube, we have accounts raking in huge revenues along with Christwire.org and a host of other websites, with this one.
In my mind, I wonder, what was happening in the world when this story first broke in 2011, and then what was happening in the world when it really hit the fan in 2014 and has been steadily getting more and more steam.
I started doing some research but that would take days and days because I was not aware that this “Michelle Was Born A Man” meme was even being talked about. So I did not have the awareness at the time to connect the dots. So if any of you out there have any insights feel free to drop me a comment.
It seems that stories like this one an others, i.e. Flat Earth, Nibiru, the Rapture, and terrorists cells next door, are huge distractions thrown at the American Public to overshadow the Big Elephant in the room. Couple that with the enormous number of mass shootings, many of which have been uncovered as false flags and we end up with a Plethora of psyops that are often perpetrated by internet trolls and News outlets, to keep the American people reeling from pillar to post in fear and trepidation. The real issues get swept under the rug while the American people banter over the ridiculous.
Like Mr. Butvidas, founder of Christwire.org said.
“Let’s write stuff to expose how stupid people are.”
And let me further quote the Christwire.org co-founder, “Mr. Watson who said,
“There’s just rampant idiocy in the media sometimes. People watch their favorite news channels, don’t question it and will regurgitate it the next day at the office. That is no good at all.”
Meanwhile, I will be holding on to may hat for the roller-coaster ride, called “The Trump Administration.” Time for a pizza and a beer to watch this one unfold…
