End of Story: America College of Pediatricians Says Encouraging Transgenderism is Child Abuse

The American College of Pediatricians is saying that encouraging children to think they are the opposite sex is child abuse.

In a recent position statement, the group affirms, “Conditioning children into believing a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse.”

The group is sounding the alarm about the dangers of transgenderism. “Rates of suicide are 20 times greater among adults who use cross-sex hormones and undergo sex reassignment surgery.”

This statistic correlates with a survey of 6,450 transgenders conducted by the National Center for Transgender Equality and the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force. Additionally, a World Health Organization report compiled from 15 countries links transgenderism with higher rates of suicide.

These studies found that 50 percent of transgender youth attempt suicide. Furthermore, it found these individuals, who suffer from “gender dysphoria,” themselves reported higher rates of drug abuse, unemployment and homelessness.

The American College of Pediatricians, which issued the report titled “Gender Ideology Harms Children,” is composed of distinguished psychiatrists, endocrinologists, pediatricians and health care professionals.

They’re confirming “facts — not ideology — determine sex.” The recent statement cites several reasons why following politically correct “gender ideology,” instead of biologically-based treatment, is harming children.

They note that human sexuality is based on XY or XX genes. “No one is born with a gender. Everyone is born with a biological sex.” The “exceedingly rare” hermaphrodite condition, they clarify, is a distinguishable disorder whereby an abnormal sex organ may grow on an otherwise normal male or female body. These instances “do not constitute a third sex.”

Gender, they relate, is a “sociological and psychological concept” related to an “awareness of themselves as male and female.”

The report asserts, “People who identify as ‘feeling like the opposite sex’ or ‘somewhere in between’ do not comprise a third sex,” and “that after puberty as many as 88% of girls and 98% of boys will eventually accept reality and achieve a state of mental and physical health.”

In their professional opinion, “A person’s belief that he or she is something they are not is, at best, a sign of confused thinking.”

The organization is urging “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.”

Even though conversion therapy helps remove gender confusion in such individuals and report a success rate as high as 80 percent, nevertheless lawmakers are blocking the ability for these individuals to get clinical help.

Four states and one federal district currently ban conversion therapy: California, New Jersey, Oregon, Illinois and the District of Columbia. In Cincinnati, Ohio, the city council recently passed an ordinance fining counselors who try to help a sexually confused teen $200 per day, or $6,000 per month.

New York City recently passed a law whereby a person can be fined up to $250,000 if he fails to address a person according to his preferred gender. States or cities criminalizing psychotherapy meant to explore and treat transgenderism as a mental disorder are being backed by the White House administration. Read more

  1. I wish those who address transgenderism would define its elements. From what I have gleaned transgender is actually a social construct term that was promoted by a transvestite magazine publisher to mask a compulsion.
    Just recently I came across an article that even those born with the anomaly now referred to as intersex are included under the transgender umbrella. How is that so?

    1. One has to consider “transgenderism” basically a mental illness. And co-joined twin scenarios have nothing to with “transgenderism”. Underneath, the objective appears to be promoting of deviant behaviors and sterilization of the population. After all if one has a “sex-appearance change operation” one is sterilized.

  2. DISGUSTING. Yes it IS child abuse, and your child will end up paying for your liberal experiment with their bodies, and their lives.

    Long story short only in wacky Harry Potter land can anyone “change their gender” / biological sex AFTER THEIR BIRTH as a simple DNA test can easily prove.

    1. Correction – “AFTER THEIR CONCEPTION”. Once the sperm (x or y) joins with the egg (x) the child’s gender is determined.

  4. In the push for “rights”, all homosexuals wanted was “to be tolerated” and shown “respect”. Almost every decent person has no problem with that, as we are all human beings, given our individual wants, needs and proclivities.
    The abolition of laws criminalizing homosexuality was a first step in eliminating the persecution that homosexuals endured. However, that was a BIG mistake, seeing the “liberties” that homosexuals are taking with children…and THEIR intolerance towards others who do not share their “in your face” demands to accept their “lifestyle”.
    Sad to say, “tolerance” has morphed into demands for not only “acceptance”, but deference, to the whims of homosexuals, without regards for the rights of heterosexuals with differing beliefs.
    When homosexuals purposely target a Christian-run bakery or other business, making demands for not only “acceptance”, but using the “civil-rights” laws, forcing the owner to go against his principles, THAT, my friends is tyranny, under guise of “civil-rights”.
    Using the “civil-rights” laws to force business owners into actions that go against their basic beliefs is tyranny of the highest order, and has no place in American society. It is interesting to note that, in these cases where homosexuals wanted to “prove a point”, they bypassed many bakeries who would accede to their wishes and give them what they desire. As an aside, muslim bakers who refused to bake homosexual-themed cakes were NOT targeted for “civil-rights” violations—double standard, indeed.
    This kind of behavior garners no favors with most decent people and furthers resolve against militant homosexuals who want not only toleration, but total “in your face” acceptance of their “lifestyle”–something that some people find that does not “square” with their beliefs.
    It appears that the success of “equal rights” for homosexuals has renewed a push to “normalize” other behaviors, such as “transsexuality”, “cross-dressing”, and other “gender fluidity” behaviors. There is even a push by pedophiles and their advocates to redefine (decriminalize and normalize) their behavior, renaming it “minor-attracted adults” rather than the perversion that it is presently defined as. The “slippery slope” started with the normalization of homosexuality, and has degenerated into the demands for acceptance of every form of human dysfunction.
    “Live and let live” used to be a staple of American society, but was eviscerated with every “protected group” using laws to force others to not only tolerate them, but accept them. Not good…
    “Slippery slope”, indeed…

    1. Don’t forget someone who qualifies as homosexual can still live a normal non-sodomy life. The words homosexual and heterosexual were created in the 1890s to describe sexual attraction not behavior. The proper terms for the same-sex-on-sex behavior is sodomy, sodomite, and sodomize. And they want to force people to accept their abnormal and unnatural behavior as normal behavior. Consider the examples people often use from non-human animal populations as examples of sodomy are in reality dominance behavior related to determining who gets to reproduce with females.

  5. Remember, those who promote deviant behavior need children to be confused about the gender and behaviors. When a child is confused about the gender, or sex, it makes it easier to recruit them in deviant behaviors such as sodomy. Anyone who has been involved in raising a child knows both boys and girls will tend to play with the same things – especially when young. Consider, both boys and girls will play will dolls. And both girls and boys will play with them in the same way – both nicely and harshly – like hammers. Then consider “Tom Boys” which is a label for girls who like doing traditional boy things. They are still girls and like girls things as well. And there are boys who like traditional girl things. A lot of it depends upon what is available to them that the parents and other siblings have and play with.

    What parents will notice is that girls are girls and boys are boys. When puberty occurs the biological differences kick in and it is important for parents to have taught and teach their children proper behavior. A child going through puberty is subject to confusion and those who want to recruit them into deviant, unnatural, and harmful behaviors will target them. We see this with those engaging in abnormal behavior promoting their abnormal behaviors in libraries and schools. This is also why parents need to be straight forward with their children when children ask those inconvenient questions related to sex and other behaviors. Parents also need to be aware of what their children are being exposed to as well. Consider, Critical Race Theory (CRT) is about promoting racism and victimization in children. It is not about dealing with bad behaviors of the past or how things we consider bad now were consider normal and acceptable by just about everyone.

    And we have to be careful about the chemicals children are exposed to since many chemicals do cause harm in relation to how the body develops. Another thing people need to consider that if a person goes through a “sex-appearance change” operation they have been sterilized and can not have children. Those who want to reduce the population of the Earth by 1/2 to 2/3 clearly view this as a way to achieve their agenda regardless of the harm it does to people. One must always look at the big picture and behind the curtain to find the real agenda.
