WTM FAQ 8.5  What is Jeremy Griffith’s view of transgenderism or gender dysphoria?


In his 2023 book Our Meaning Jeremy wrote that “LGBTIQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, asexual and other sexually or gender diverse) people are becoming common; and the reason they are becoming common can be explained by the extreme levels of psychological upset in younger generations. To very briefly summarise what is explained in chapter 8:11B of FREEDOM about the roles of men and women under the duress of the human condition and about sex as humans have been practising it under that duress. Human sex has not been about trying to pass on our genes as we’ve been taught, rather it is, like most of our behaviours now, a behaviour that is being caused by, or at least greatly influenced by, our psychosis. This is because since the human condition emerged, the act of procreation has become about attacking, destroying, violating, degrading, sullying, ‘fucking’ innocence for its implied criticism of our corrupted condition (see paragraph 782 of FREEDOM). So the reason younger women are more attractive isn’t because they are more fertile as we’ve been taught, but because they are more innocent looking and thus destroyable or ‘fuckable’. It is also explained in that chapter that men had to take up the loathsome task of championing the conscious thinking ego over the ignorance of our instinctive self (see paragraph 770 of FREEDOM), so when men became overly upset (as the whole human race is rapidly becoming), adopting the women’s role of not being responsible for that horrible battle could psychologically be very appealing. And it could also be psychologically appealing for females when they become overly upset (again, as the whole human race is rapidly becoming) to not want to be a victim of men’s oppression and so want to reject the female role of being a sex object, and to also naively want to take up the more dominant and powerful role men have had. These insights allow us to understand the 4,000 per cent rise in children wanting to change sex’ in the UK between 2009 and 2018 (The Telegraph, 16 Sep. 2018), and why there has been this explosion(ibid.) in ‘gender dysphoria’ or ‘transgenderism’.”
