Childhood Transgenderism is Child Abuse Say Pediatricians

The American College of Pediatricians (not to be confused with the American Academy of Pediatrics) has issued a statement that concludes that gender reclassification of children (transgenderism) is child abuse. This is an interim statement. A longer policy paper will be disseminated this summer, as reported by The Blaze

Naturally, The American College of Pediatricians is labelled a “hate group” by Think Progress, because nothing screams progress like confused children. Any of us who do not jump up and down and cheer every child who is confused about identity is “transphobic” or “cisgendered“.

Just for kicks, here are the definitions of transphobic and cisgendered.

1) Treating someone differently, because of their gender identity or gender presentation.

2) Also, refusing to treat someone differently because of their gender identity or gender presentation.

3) Referring to a transgender person, or treating them, in any manner other than exactly what they would like you to.

I am perfectly comfortable identifying as the gender my parents put on my birth certificate. I am cisgender.

I see a lot of room for microaggressions here.

What has the American College of Pediatricians stated in their statement? I am so glad that you asked. Read and be shocked (dripping sarcasm).

1. Human sexuality is an objective biological binary trait: “XY” and “XX” are genetic markers of health – not genetic markers of a disorder.

2. No one is born with a gender. Everyone is born with a biological sex. Gender (an awareness and sense of oneself as male or female) is a sociological and psychological concept; not an objective biological one.

3. A person’s belief that he or she is something they are not is, at best, a sign of confused thinking. When an otherwise healthy biological boy believes he is a girl, or an otherwise healthy biological girl believes she is a boy, an objective psychological problem exists that lies in the mind not the body, and it should be treated as such.

4. Puberty is not a disease and puberty-blocking hormones can be dangerous. Reversible or not, puberty-blocking hormones induce a state of disease – the absence of puberty – and inhibit growth and fertility in a previously biologically healthy child.

5. According to the DSM-V, as many as 98% of gender confused boys and 88% of gender confused girls eventually accept their biological sex after naturally passing through puberty.

6. Children who use puberty blockers to impersonate the opposite sex will require cross-sex hormones in late adolescence. Cross-sex hormones (testosterone and estrogen) are associated with dangerous health risks including but not limited to high blood pressure, blood clots, stroke and cancer.

7. Rates of suicide are twenty times greater among adults who use cross-sex hormones and undergo sex reassignment surgery, even in Sweden which is among the most LGBQT – affirming countries.

8. Conditioning children into believing a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful as child abuse.

As someone who passed Psychology 101 in college, allow me the addition of two more thoughts to the statement.

1. There currently exists no long term study of the effects of any of the drugs on adolescent brains. Can any of these drugs have psychological effects? I dunno.

2. Parading your confused child on television and social media is also child abuse. I am specifically talking about the TLC program “I am Jazz”, which has been renewed for another season.

Okay, so teenage boys are uncomfortable hugging or even dealing with a sexually confused boy and don’t know how to act. Send those boys immediately to the nearest Diversity Reeducation Camp.

Growing up dancing in ballet and community theater, I have been around “different” people as long as I can remember. So much so that I never thought of them as different. They just were people. Personally, I don’t care if Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner decides he/she is a two toed tree sloth. He is an adult and if he decides to change genders or species on a daily basis, it’s none of my doggone business.

But, parents going along with their children’s confusion and insisting that otherwise sane adults play along. Parents demanding that their confused son use the girls restroom or vice versa. Parents filling their children full of unnecessary and life altering chemicals. Parents parading their children for fun and profit on television and in social media.

Well, that is child abuse. Plain and simple. End of conversation.
