Here Are A Few Of The Tweets That Jackie Green Deleted
The internet never forgets
An anonymous source has provided The Distance with screen capture images of tweets deleted by Jackie Green.
Susie Green left the Mermaids organization last Friday, getting only a cursory farewell from the organization. Thereafter, Twitter users noticed that both Green and her child Jackie had deleted past tweets.
The images provided to us were made during 2022. They are consistent with Susie Green’s 2015 TED talk admission that her husband’s homophobia drove the decision to suppress Jackie’s puberty and undergo sterilizing surgery as a minor.
Our source expressed deep concern for Jackie as a victim of homophobic “trans” conversion therapy. We agree.
Now, don’t go calling me a conspiracy theorist, because everyone who was on social media ten years ago is probably embarrassed by something they posted back then.
I am just noting that the Wachowski brothers famously “transitioned” in the first decade of the 21st Century, that they both acknowledged the role of kink in this life-change at the time, and that their films have sucked ever since. Ahem.
Jackie really was trying to get media coverage a decade ago.
Perhaps Jackie was embarrassed to have ever liked Ellen DeGeneres or NBC?
Jackie turned 18 in 2012, the year he sent this set of tweets. He was being celebrated across the media landscape as the world’s youngest gender surgery patient in 2009. Told as a happy story about parents alleviating distress, the horrible reality slipped out of Susie Green’s mouth in a 2015 TED Talk: Jackie liked the “wrong” toys, his father was homophobic, and sterilizing Jackie was easier than just letting him play with Barbies.
Despite being a legal adult, Jackie was still living with his dad, though.
Jackie got involved in the early days of TERF-bashing.
Here, Jackie commented on the case of London GP Dr. Richard Curtis, who was under fire for giving “inappropriate sex changes” in 2012.
According to the Guardian, which was not quite captured by the ideology of “trans” just yet, “The allegations” against Dr. Curtis “include commencing hormone treatment in complex cases without referring the patient for a second opinion or before they had undergone counselling, administering hormone treatment at patients' first appointments, and referring patients for surgery before they had lived in their desired gender role for a year, as international guidelines recommend.”
Transition on demand? Gosh, this sounds so familiar:
One patient allegedly underwent surgery within 12 months of their first appointment. He is also accused of administering hormones to patients aged under 18 without an adequate assessment, and wrongly stating that a patient seeking gender reassignment had changed their name.
One of the most serious cases concerns a female patient who regrets switching to a male role. She underwent hormone treatment and had her breasts removed. The woman is one of the complainants in the current GMC investigation. Other cases include patients who were allegedly prescribed hormones at age 16.
Although the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust in London, which specialises in the treatment of gender identity difficulties in children, does offer hormone treatment to under-18s on the NHS, it is alleged that Curtis lacks the specialist knowledge and skills to adequately treat such patients on his own.
Mermaids was already lobbying Tavistock to imitate the Dr. Curtis model at the time, and they succeeded in that design.
As a result, that clinic is now closing due to the scandal of damaged children while the NHS has abandoned the “affirmation” model of pediatric transition.
If anyone wanted to pursue any sort of court action related to Mermaids and Tavistock, they might see the tweet above as potential evidence. I am not a lawyer, but that seems a reasonable possibility.
A year later, Jackie worried for his looks.
In 2015, Jackie posted a photo of himself posed awkwardly with a ski.
In 2018, Jackie took issue with Janice Turner, a Times journalist who went on to win the Orwell Prize in 2020. Turner was under fire for her views on Tavistock and pediatric transition, so this tweet got a fair amount of traction.
Since the evil TERF needed education, Jackie provided some. “I was meant to be female,” Jackie said. That whole penis and testicles thing was a mere birth defect. Jackie is sure of this because he liked to play with mermaids and Barbies instead of G.I. Joes.
It was definitely the toys, you see.
Why would Jackie delete those tweets? Some observers suggest that he may have detransitioned, or has transition regret. That would be consistent with some of these, whereas legal action seems less likely to explain all of them. (Again, I am not a lawyer.)
So who knows? Maybe.
Or maybe he just wants to leave behind a very clean Twitter profile.
Jackie has nuked all of his own tweets. Only retweets, from its creation in 2012 until Jackie’s final retweet of a snowboarder in 2015, remain visible. The account has no images.
Jackie’s Twitter account looks exactly like a teenager making the healthy decision to stop living online, which, let’s be honest, good on him if that’s the case. It’s hard enough growing up these days, worse still to have a family that would rather de-sex you than risk you turning out homosexual.
Everyone says dumb things when they are young, things they regret, and more often than not, they learned to say those things at home.
