A couple of weeks ago, doctors at the American College of Pediatricians (ACP) issued a statement, warning parents of the dangers of gender ideology on children. Basically, ACP said that imposing ideas of “gender fluidity” on children majorly screws them up. That’s right, Social Justice Warriors. You’re screwing up our kids. Awesome job.
Don’t worry- we have science to back it up. And we all know how much the radical left loves science.
Like a splash of ice water, the pediatricians declared that human sexuality is “an objective biological binary trait” rather than an infinite series of self-determined “genders.” The norm for human design, the doctors said, “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,” and therefore, “XY” and “XX” are “genetic markers of health – not genetic markers of a disorder.”
Put simply, there are two genders. All of those other gender identities are not normal. I realize that it’s cool and trendy to identify as “queer,” “bigender,” “pangender,” “crystagender,” “mutogender,” or “alexigender,” but society should not try to normalize those identities. It’s not normal. And the SJWs who cling to these new gender identities (because it’s the new trend) take away from those who actually struggle with gender dysphoria and need help. It’s not a trend. It’s not normal. It’s a disorder, and those struggling with it need help. They don’t deserve to be ridiculed, but they also don’t need society assuring them that their feelings are completely normal.
But back to the study. The pediatricians said that everyone is born a biological sex but don’t really become aware of their gender right away. Their sexuality develops over time. It’s simply human development. You let it run its course. But instead, the SJWs are adamant on pushing the idea of “gender fluidity” down children’s throats, and this is dangerous to their mental health and overall development.
While everyone is born with a biological sex, the doctors noted, their awareness of their sexuality develops over time and “may be derailed by a child’s subjective perceptions, relationships, and adverse experiences from infancy forward.” Helping them accept their objective sexual identity is one of the objectives of good parenting and intelligent education.
“A person’s belief that he or she is something they are not is, at best, a sign of confused thinking,” the physicians said. “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.”
Wow. So they’re meaning to tell us that these are mental problems? Problems that cannot be addressed by altering the physical body? Quick! Send the SJWs to the nearest safe space. Microaggressions coming in hot!
ACP’s entire warning is simple. If your child shows signs of “gender confusion,” don’t embrace it. You’re only screwing them over in the future.
Pulling no punches, the doctors stated that conditioning children into believing a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is “child abuse.”
This is the conditioning that Planned Parenthood and the LGBT lobby are trying to foist on parents and educators as somehow the right way to treat sexually confused children.
And yet, the doctors insist, what “compassionate and reasonable person would condemn young children to this fate knowing 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?”
Planned Parenthood. They would.
