AUGUST 24 - GERTRUDE ELION

Winner of a 1988 Nobel Prize for Medicine, biochemist Gertrude Elion and her team made countless contributions to the medical field, developing drugs to fight against leukemia, gout, malaria, herpes and meningitis. She discovered an immuno-suppressive agent that would aid in kidney transplants between unrelated donors by reducing the body’s rejection of foreign tissue, and on top of all that, she oversaw research that led to the development of AZT, the first drug used for AIDS treatments.

“The deeper the blue becomes, the more strongly it calls man towards the infinite, awakening in him a desire for the pure and, finally, for the supernatural… The brighter it becomes, the more it loses its sound, until it turns into silent stillness and becomes white.”
Wassily Kandinsky

Doxorubicin is a drug used in cancer chemotherapy. it works by intercalating DNA, with the most serious adverse effect being life-threatening heart damage. It is commonly used in the treatment of a wide range of cancers. Doxorubicin is commonly used to treat some leukemias and Hodgkin’s lymphoma, as well as cancers of the bladder, breast, stomach, lung, ovaries, thyroid, soft tissue sarcoma, multiple myeloma, and others. The most dangerous side effect of doxorubicin is cardiomyopathy, leading to congestive heart failure. The incidence of this cardiomyopathy is dependent on its cumulative dose. There are several ways in which doxorubicin is believed to cause cardiomyopathy, including oxidative stress, downregulation of genes for contractile proteins, and p53 mediated apoptosis.

Nothing like holding a pure compound that you have just synthesized.

The last steps in the synthesis involves hydrolysing the ester bond on the naphthalene ring and then coupling the carboxylic acid to a dipeptide chain.

These molecules are being synthesized and studied due to their anti-cancer activity shown in both lung cancer and malignant melanoma cell lines. Although past research is all ’in vitro’, we hope to push for ’in vivo’ testing in the future. 

All people who are “trans critical” are deceitful, dishonest, immoral, unethical, transphobic, anti-LGBT, ignorant, incompetent, violent, abusive, and in opposition to human and civil rights for all people.

I want to eradicate the medical and social systems that support transsexualism and the reasons why in a gender-defined society, persons find it necessary to change their bodies.

Janice Raymond, in trying really hard *not* to be calling for genocide.

And failing.

She wants to eradicate the reasons why persons find it necessary to change their bodies. Which, chiefly, I will note, is transness. As the other things she wants to eradicate prove.  Hmm, No wonder she wants to eradicate them.

You cannot eradicate transness without eradicating trans people.

So in her defense of not wanting to engage in genocide is, itself, based in a search for genocide, born of her own ignorance and incompetence.

The medical and social systems she wants to eradicate are Medicine, Psychology, Psychiatry, Sociology, Biology, Social Work, most Humanities, LGBT organizations and rights, Pharmacology, and so forth.

So it isn’t only genocide she calls for in her book, but a complete destruction of critical human efforts over the last 10000 years.

That is, without question, radical. Just not in a good way.

She wants to destroy completely.  To put an end to.

She came awfully close.

With the end of the exemptions for trans care that quote and were based on her work, we will see the Trans community rise like never before.

When a terf tries to say that she didn’t really mean genocide, keep in mind, these are her words up above.

Words she spoke in defense of her saying “I contend that the problem with transsexualism would best be served by morally mandating it out of existence”.

Gender Abolition is based on the culturally intolerant notion that western imperialist ideas of gender are universal.

It is an idea that promotes the ethnocentric colonization and oppression of other cultures and ways of involving gender, and is a direct call to the notion of manifest destiny that has so violently destroyed so much of the world’s resources.

It is a fundamentally homophobic, transphobic, lesbophobic, biphobic, misogynist concept derived from extremism and a utopian idealism that ignores the lived experiences of other women, and the decades of work of women in non-western societies. 

Gender Abolition is White Savior Complex gone global. It is the ultimate expression of White Feminism, and the complete reversal of the very concept that gave it birth: Unisex.
