A Bath Spa University student claims his university accepted, and then rejected, his research proposal on gender reassignment reversal because it would attract criticism on social media.

James Caspian, a psychotherapist who works with Transgender Awareness, proposed research about “detransitioning” to the university. Caspian said the university approved his application.

However, when Caspian went back with his preliminary findings, the university said he would have to resubmit his proposal to the ethics committee. His findings suggested that a growing number of young people, particularly women, were regretting gender reassignment. Caspian’s application was rejected.

Caspian immediately reached out for legal help.

The university told Caspian his research could negatively affect the university.

“Engaging in a potentially politically incorrect piece of research carries a risk to the university. Attacks on social media may not be confined to the researcher, but may involve the university.

“The posting of unpleasant material on blogs or social media may be detrimental to the reputation of the university.”

A spokeswoman for Bath Spa said the university could not comment as it is an open investigation.

“The majority of de-transitioners appear to be young lesbians who were swept up in the transgender social contagion after bingeing on transgender social media,” says Cynthia Yockey, author of the forthcoming book from Dangerous Books, War in the Women’s Room: How to Get Men in Dresses Out of Women’s Spaces and Save Your Children from Confusion about Their Sex.

“A survey conducted in 2016 by a then 22-year-old lesbian named Cari, who had de-transitioned from identifying as male, found 203 natal female de-transitioners in just two weeks,” she added.  “The majority reported they de-transitioned because their political beliefs changed, or they found other ways to cope with the unhappiness they felt with their female bodies.”

Caspian is a trustee of the Beaumont Trust, a charity that provides education about and support for transgender people. He says he understands the concern in the transgender community.

“I’ve worked for many years with people who have transitioned their gender and I think that when people feel marginalized and vulnerable to criticism, they are very sensitive to anything they may perceive as that, and feel afraid,” Caspian told the Guardian.

“The idea we might use the information from the research that I was going to do in a way that would not help people is completely wrong. The research is necessary to really help people.”

Capsian first became aware of the issue of gender reassignment reversal in 2014. A Belgrade doctor told him he had been asked to carry out seven reversals that year.

Caspian explains that it’s hard to get people to talk about their reversing surgery.

“They said they felt too traumatized to talk about it, which made me think we really need to do the research even more,” Caspian added.

    Gender Diaspora is a weak tea, watered down, cave to the PC police by the DSM V. The belief that one is not the sex/gender they are is a delusion, thus, should be classified as Gender Delusion, a psychotic disorder. The insistence that everyone must believe in a very small percentage of delusional person’s delusion is a Shared Psychotic Disorder. This psychological ship will right itself, in time, but, not before the lost of much life.
    ❄Feminist❄, from which this madness springs, is a Ms. Frankenstein’s monster! ????

    The Bible is so condemned and despised and mocked, yet every thing that goes wrong does so for failing to adhere to its standards.

      So you are telling everyone here, in front of your god, that the have read all the bible from start to end and still you would adhere to all its standards? Sorry I’m not into bashing babies heads onto rocks, to name just one horror in the bible. I have read the bible three times, front to back, and hundreds of times I just open random pages when I feel a need for a fright fest. Of course the Qur’an is worst but, it has more than 1/3 if it copied straight out of the bible. With that said, there are some good parts in the bible too, mostly copied from other religions and philosophies. Nevertheless, that does not make up for the lie of a Hell to frighten children and the child like. No Loving god would produce a Hell, that is why the Jews don’t have a Hell. Hell is a construction of Christians and Muslims.

        Within Judaism the concept of the spiritual resting place for troubled souls is represented by Sheol, or Gehinom being either a kind of purgatory for some, or the permanent place for the wicked depending on who you ask. Their scriptures are as disconnected and flexible as their followers. Talk to two jews you’ll get three different answers.

        Just because the Rabbi gave your dick a little suck when he cut the tip off doesn’t mean you need to suck a jew’s dick just to get back at the Christians you hate.

        • Hairatic Rick

          Attempt to stay on issue, Ginger, yes we all assumed that you could google there is no need to show us, but, Hell is the issue at hand and no loving god would send his people to a Hell. Hell is a human made up lie to keep the stupid in line and the money coming in. Specking of money why does god need your money? Hell, your book said that he made gold, did he forget where he put it? HA! ????

            It’s not “my book” Pickle Rick. Keep sucking that jew dick, though.

          • Hairatic Rick

            Pickle Rick, HA! How so very uncreative, try Pickle Rickle, fool! HA. And, you can stop asking me out, you are too ugly and you will never get your hands on my cock, so stop begging. HA!

        Good morning, Rick
        Today I saw a cup of water that is sold for R$ 100,00, an offer from the original R$ 190,00. It is about 200 ml. The evangelical church claims it’s from the Nile, the river Moses drank from.
        What has been happening to me since I realized I misleadingly thought I was a Christian is that I’ve loosing the motivator to be mad at people. I feel sad when I see someone hurting. That was what I tried to say. We can see whatever we want in everywhere. Believers will by the cup. The swindler will profit. But the worst is the preacher who glides into believing himself in the lies he preaches.
        Are you a Jew?

        • Hairatic Rick

          And, a very good morning to you, Susana. ☺ A good post with some good points. I enjoyed reading it. Don’t feel sad when people are hurting just do what you can to not add to their hurt and know that you cannot fix the lives of others, but, they can drag you down with them. just live as well as you can.
          Am I Jewish? No, I’m an Atheist of Germanic stock who was a Christian until I read the Qur’an and found that is was clearly made up by humans with tons of mistakes and with 1/3 of it copied from the Bible, at which point I became an Atheist. I would not mind being Jewish except i m really good at playing basketball. ???? No I’m not a Jew. GTKRWN sees Jews every where just like SJWs sees NAZIS every where. GTKRWN and SJWs are all the same. HA!????
