It has already been revealed that there are many billionaires hiding behind this creepy ideological movement. They are like cult gurus, changing people's minds and intoxicating them with illusions. Among such magicians, there is one group that may shed some light on the nature of this issue. The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is an intergovernmental economic organization with 38 member countries to stimulate economic progress and world trade.
Gender ideology has many flaws and does a lot of harm to society, yet it pretends to be a human rights movement. For example, Open Society is funding Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch for “human rights,” while also helping to create legal medical identities for children which sterilize them and create other physical harms.
When it comes to OECD, delegates from the member countries attend committee, and what is discussed and agreed upon in the meeting is reflected in the policies of each country. In other words, the OECD is not only a data aggregator, but it also influences the economic management of nations. Such organizations that influence governments are demanding that member countries legislate "self-ID", "non-binary", etc. which are no more than corporate illusions, no less magical than unicorns, that support the medical industry.
The OECD says, ”Anti-LGBTI discrimination also reduces economic output by excluding LGBTI talents from the labour market and impairing their mental and physical health, hence their productivity”. But is that what they really mean?
(i) equal treatment of same-sex and different-sex consensual sexual acts;
(ii) legal recognition of same-sex partnerships;
(iii) equal access to assisted reproductive technology.
2. TI-specific provisions
(i) depathologizing being transgender;
(ii) allowing a non-binary gender option on birth certificates and other identity documents
According to the OECD, the goal of "de-pathologizing being transgender" requires three policy actions: (Executive summary 1.1. Which laws are LGBTI-inclusive? )
①Not categorizing being "transgender" as a mental illness in national clinical classifications.
②Permitting "transgender" people to change their gender marker, i.e. sex and first name revealing an individual’s gender, in the civil registry.
③Not conditioning legal gender recognition on medical requirements, including sterilization, sex-reassignment surgery and/or treatment, or psychiatric diagnosis.
The OECD is trying to impose this ideology on all its members, even those with different cultures. Let's look at the example of Japan, a country with a culture very different to that of western societies, to see if this is really “diversity”.
Japanese society was uninfluenced by Christianity until the Meiji Restoration in 1868. Homosexual activity was common between monks, Samurai, and even ordinary people. After the Meiji Restoration, many missionaries have come to Japan, but most Japanese are not very interested in Christianity except on Christmas day. They have never made homosexuality a crime.
The concept of gender identity is difficult to understand for the Japanese. In Japan, “trans” can only be explained as a medical condition. The Japanese government has been under pressure from international organizations like Amnesty international to pass LGBT legislation since 2011. However, the Japanese government has not responded to the request. Homosexuality has never been banned and Japan has a legal “sex reassignment” law created in 2003 (Surgery required). There is no need for laws prohibiting discrimination against LGBT people. It would be a loss for the ruling party to make a law about gender ideology that is not favored by the Japanese people.
2021 was a “grim year in which the government’s listless handling of the coronavirus pandemic drove down its support ratings to dangerous levels” (The Times, Nov.1, 2021). Five months before the election, the ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) suddenly agreed to deliberate on an LGBT bill written by a coalition of the smaller parties. There was huge disagreement from those who knew the harmful effects of gender ideology, especially on Twitter. In the end, the bill was scrapped.
Before the election in October 2021, the opposition parties and the LDP ruling party were at a press conference. When each party leader was asked in the conference, “Raise your hand if you support an LGBT law in 2022,” While all other party leaders raised their hands, only Kishida of the ruling LDP did not.
This strategy of standing up to gender ideology activists seems to have worked. Even if the smaller parties formed a fierce opposing coalition, the LDP won more votes than expected in the election, gaining a majority in the parliament.
However, there is a requirement from the OECD (pdf.). Japan is a country with a food self-sufficiency rate of less than 40%. And a country with few natural resources. Would such a country want to offend the OECD? The Japanese government would like to comply with the OECD's demands, wouldn't it? Then, what should they do?
Rainbow education has begun in schools, to curry favor with the OECD. Public restrooms are becoming more and more unisex. TV programs and Magazines are praising LGBT. An increasing number of girls consider themselves “transgender” and wish to have puberty blockers. Current laws do not allow for “sex reassignment” until adulthood, but the age at which hormone therapy can be started is 15 years old.
Now, a law that positions children under the age of 18 as " Rights Holder“ is being debated. Some are concerned that this law (tentatively called the Children's Basic Law) may also give children the right to sexual consent or “transitions.” Recently, uterus transplants are about to become a realistic option in Japan. Some doctors suggest transplanting uteruses removed from women pretending to be men be transplanted into women who cannot bear children due to uterine diseases.
In addition to that, despite the rapid increase in the number of child abuse cases in Japan, the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare is now proposing to revise the Organ Transplant Law guidelines to allow the donation of organs from children suspected (but not proven) to be abused to death for organ transplant with only the consent of their relatives. The topic of surrogacy(代理出産) has also been in the news frequently.
Apparently, the OECD want self-ID and easy access to reproductive technology at the same time.
Even without enacting unpopular laws, gender ideology is spreading throughout Japanese society. If not in the direction of self-ID, there are significant sexual and medical changes taking place. Reproductive medicine will have a strong connection to “gender identity.” It seems, after all, that the Japanese government is trying to comply with the OECD's demands.
In other words, the real meaning of the buzzword "diversity" may be to stimulate world economy drastically through global cooperation and investment in gender ideology, medicalizing sexual identity, and building a bigger marketing segment for Big Fertility. “Human rights” has become a magic trick for profiteering.
