Transgenderism: Dangerous Child Abuse

The “transgender” mental illness currently favored by the establishment and pushed by the controlled media is exceptionally dangerous for children, is child abuse, and must be stopped, the American College of Pediatricians (ACP) has announced.

The ACP—which is America’s respected and official organization of pediatricians and child healthcare professionals—has called on all educators and legislators to definitively reject the “transgender” madness once and for all.

Before and after: Female Ryland Whittington on the left, “male” Ryland Whittington on the right. From the “Progressives Today” website article “Transgender Toddlers: The New Parenting.”

In a positon paper published on the ACP website, titled “Gender Ideology Harms Children,” the organization “urges educators and legislators to reject all policies that condition children to accept as normal a life of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex. Facts—not ideology—determine reality.”

The paper, signed by ACP president, Michelle A. Cretella, M.D.; Vice President Quentin Van Meter, M.D.; and University Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins Medical School, and the former psychiatrist in chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital, Paul McHugh, M.D., goes on to list eight points why the promotion of the “transgender” mental illness is such a danger.

Firstly, the ACP says, “human sexuality is an objective biological binary trait: ‘XY’ and ‘XX’ are genetic markers of health—not genetic markers of a disorder.”

The “norm for human design is to be conceived either male or female. Human sexuality is binary by design with the obvious purpose being the reproduction and flourishing of our species. This principle is self-evident,” the paper says, before continuing:

“The exceedingly rare disorders of sexual differentiation (DSDs), including but not limited to testicular feminization and congenital adrenal hyperplasia, are all medically identifiable deviations from the sexual binary norm, and are rightly recognized as disorders of human design. Individuals with DSDs do not constitute a third sex.”

Secondly, the ACP says, “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.

“No one is born with an awareness of themselves as male or female; this awareness develops over time and, like all developmental processes, may be derailed by a child’s subjective perceptions, relationships, and adverse experiences from infancy forward. People who identify as ‘feeling like the opposite sex’ or ‘somewhere in between’ do not comprise a third sex. They remain biological men or biological women.”

Thirdly, the ACP addresses the increasingly common idea among some elements of society which lay undue emphasis on children, who, encouraged by mass media promotion of “transgenderism,” simply play along with nonsense because they are easily led.

“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.

“These children suffer from gender dysphoria. Gender dysphoria (GD), formerly listed as Gender Identity Disorder (GID), is a recognized mental disorder in the most recent edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association (DSM-V). The psychodynamic and social learning theories of GD/GID have never been disproved.”

In its fourth point, the ACP also warns against the shocking prevalence of hormone blocking drugs being given to pre-pubescent children by adults who have promoted “transgender feelings” in those children:

“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.”

Fifthly, the ACP points out that the American Psychiatric Association’s classification and diagnostic tool (the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition, DSM-V) specifically points out that “as many as 98 percent of gender confused boys and 88 percent of gender confused girls eventually accept their biological sex after naturally passing through puberty.”

Sixthly, the ACP reveals that children “who use puberty blockers to impersonate the opposite sex will require cross-sex hormones in late adolescence. Cross-sex hormones are associated with dangerous health risks including but not limited to high blood pressure, blood clots, stroke and cancer.”

The ACP’s seventh point reveals that “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.

“What compassionate and reasonable person would condemn young children to this fate knowing that after puberty as many as 88 percent of girls and 98 percent of boys will eventually accept reality and achieve a state of mental and physical health?” the ACP asks.

Finally, the ACP paper says that “conditioning children into believing a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse.”

“Endorsing gender discordance as normal via public education and legal policies will confuse children and parents, leading more children to present to ‘gender clinics’ where they will be given puberty-blocking drugs. This, in turn, virtually ensures that they will ‘choose’ a lifetime of carcinogenic and otherwise toxic cross-sex hormones, and likely consider unnecessary surgical mutilation of their healthy body parts as young adults.”

  1. Well it is about time people started standing up against this ridiculous nonsense. The very thought that schools are ready to teach this transexual nonsense to our children is revolting.

  2. While true that the media is easily led, it is also true that the media is full of sexual deviants of all types, much, much, more that society in general.

  3. NO! Only in words, not reality. The thinking of the progressives is that they re define things. They no longer consider gay sex to be child abuse – pedophiles are writing the sex ed curriculum in Toronto and the parents are throwing FITS.
    In NYC they de criminalize pot smoking – so it is no longer illegal so now MORE kids do it – all over the place and it affects everyone they pass. Why not just legalize burglary, robbery, assaults, etc and then you wont have any more crime? By their logic.
    In jails the biggest fear men have is of being raped – but if it happens on the outside – they are TOLD they are really GAY and they are not being abused – they need to accept that they are now gay. Being raped is how many guys are made gay.
    We are now living with Orwellian doublespeak – good is bad, etc. so anything considered bad before is NOW considered GOOD _ that is how they made abuse go away – by redefining it. all lies.

    the social engineers who control education are devil worshippers – who promote gay sex. They promote abortion as sacrifices. Planned Parenthood is called WOMENS RIGHTS (right to what – murder their children?
    The head of Planned Parenthood killed her own child.
    putting one's kids in the public schools is now child abuse. Home school them. or send them to Christian schools.

  4. Hollywood and Disney are also lock in step with the homo/transgender promotion of the "new normal". All parents need to discuss with their children that this movement is not normal at a very early age so they will not be indoctrined into the left agenda.

  5. Homosexuality is quite different from transgenderism. Homosexuality is a naturally-occurring sexual anomaly in Homo sapiens and informed people make no judgement of it. There is no desire to change sex. I agree that a child's parents should be male and female and not same sex.

    Sadly Bruce Jenner will never be a women, but a drag queen for the rest of his life.

  6. Here's a voice – a very authoritative voice – of sanity about alleged gender confusion: – In short, without homosexual activists polluting immature minds the majority of children end up heterosexual. Normal.

    Please spead the url to all your family and friends to counter the appalling homosexual propaganda that is rampant in universitiy departments of education and state education departments.

    These disgusting people don't have children. They lust after YOUR children.

  7. Thanks for posting this.

    I work in the schools and am seeing a strong "normalization" of gender dysphoria and glamorization of gays and gay lifestyles – as something to be emulated and superior to hetero "lifestyles" (which are to be sneered at).

    I assume it's the cultural Marxists at work – starting at a very young age- to get kids confused and drugged up early – in order for them NOT to reproduce themselves.

    If Whites commit suicide, especially young Whites of reproductive age, so much the better. Either that, or ship them off to fight in ZOG's never ending overseas wars to protect Israel.

    I cannot tell you how many scores of very young White (and other) children are lined up in front of the nurse's office for their daily dose of ritilin, paxil, lexapro and whatever other drugs the school psychiatrist has recommended.

    Here's the thinking in the schools: Won't sit still for more than 10 seconds? Drug 'em into compliance.

    Kids are drugged quickly (especially boys) starting at a very young age for what was once considered normal boy behavior. I know b/c I see it every single day.

  8. Honestly, this is war. The Left declared it by their actions. They want mental illness to be taught to school children as normal, which they are doing through their controlled "education" system. They absolutely want to wreck natural identity formation. There is categorically no doubt they are hostile. Some of them are outright motivated by their own sexual experience and desires! Let it sink in that these people have such influence. The Left truly will coopt any group that weakens individual autonomy, normal attachment, family formation and community bonds. I also notice, curiously, no Jewish names on that roll. Perhaps paediatrics was an oversight for the Left? Give it time, say 3 years, for "progressive" thought and an "enlightened" paper with different surnames and lead investigator, oy vey comrades! People who promote this are Satanic to the bone, but even they need to have MDs and specialisation to really get children to self-destruct. Enough is enough!

  9. Good. It's about time the medical profession spoke out against the lunacy.

    Now can they stop brainwashing schoolchildren into believeing that homosexuality is normal?

    Then put an end to adoption rights for gay couples, which panders to their sense of entitlement at the expense of he children concerned.
