As this year comes to an end, we are left to consider the epidemic of fake news, propping up a moral panic around violence against trans-identified people, aimed at distracting us from addressing real issues that exist in the real world. Teen Vogue thankfully has noted that, in fact, trans-identified people are thriving, which makes sense, particularly because so many of them are just regular people, like anyone else, and are quite often simply financially successful men. In reality, the people who are really thriving, thanks to the trans trend, are non-profits, media, Big Pharma, unethical doctors and psychiatrists, and other companies trying to cash in on individuals struggling with mental illness, social pressure, gender roles, homophobia, family problems, trauma, self-esteem, sexual fetishes, and the regular trials and tribulations of adolescence. With the holidays approaching, we know it’s important, though, to spend our dollars supporting nonsensical, sexist trends. As such, Teen Vogue has curated a list of the best gifts for people who who enjoy things like wearing clothing and telling time, but also who have been told their bodies are wrong and that the best way to resolve this is by destroying said bodies. Here are a few of their best picks.
Triangles Swim Top or Binder
Rebirth Garments creates clothing and accessories that are uncomfortable and purposeless. This is an example of one of their swim tops that also functions to compress women’s breasts, thereby restricting breathing and lung capacity, which is helpful and empowering as breathing and lung capacity are completely irrelevant to swimming.

Flat N’ Flawless Ultimate Scar Cream
Flat N’ Flawless is a cream marketed to women who have had cosmetic mastectomies. It promotes healing and reduces redness and inflammation of scars. Even if you haven’t had any cosmetic surgeries, this product works on the face and other body blemishes as well. It’s also a natural sunscreen, which is important for fresh scars. Ten per cent of all profits go toward Point of Pride, an organization that promotes gender stereotypes and the mutilation of perfectly healthy bodies, and gives away breast binders to girls and women who wish to avoid sexual objectification and have not been warned by these predatory organizations and activists about the physical harms of wearing breast binders.
