Child Abuse through Gender Reassignment

Updated on March 21, 2016
RJ Schwartz profile image

When he's not writing poetry or political articles, Ralph fills his time by researching various topics that are influencing society today.

On March 21st, 2016 The American College of Pediatricians released a temporary statement that urges all educators and legislators to summarily reject all policies that condition children to accept as normal a life of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex. The strongly worded statement will certainly be a central topic in many discussions due to sheer volume of legislative efforts in progress or planned around the topic. The most controversial of these proposals is to make women’s restrooms and locker rooms available to accommodate men who think they are women or gender non-binary (men who appear to be men but who say there are neither male nor female.)

There is a heated debate nationally that increasingly pits concerned parents against school teachers, administrators, legislators, and transsexual advocates who are advocating a trans agenda in government and the school system at all levels. The movement is using the LGBT platform as a model to demand lawmakers provide legal protections and certain “rights” on individuals who identify as the opposite gender or no gender at all. The College will provide a larger report in the summer, but the summary released today is focused on eight main points.

Boys are boys, Girls are girls, no exceptions

Human sexuality is an objective biological binary trait and being a male or a female is the normal and is for the reproduction of the human species. There are very rare disorders of sexual development; however these deviations do not in any way constitute a “third” sex. This statement serves to validate the textbook and medical definitions and is based on fact based on the individual’s reproduction anatomy. Those who support the trans agenda have spent a great deal of time attempting to reclassify the medical facts and create a grey area that elevates gender on an equal level as sex in determining identity. Yet the report points out clearly that no one is born with a gender. Everyone however is born with a biological sex. The concept of gender is a sociological and psychological concept; not an objective biological one. By utilizing the social concept, the trans community has developed an exhaustive list of new gender categories and collectively they have made demands to be addressed as such. Yet, just because a person says they feel like a member of the opposite sex does not make them a member of the opposite sex.

It's psychological

A person who believes they are something that they are not suffers from a psychological problem and should be treated accordingly by a professional. This problem lies in the mind and not in the body in any way. Gender Identity Disorder is currently recognized as a mental disorder and there has never been a single instance where anyone was able to prove that it was physical in any way. Statistical records show that Over 95% of gender confused boys and 85% of gender confused girls eventually accept their biological sex after naturally passing through puberty, but many parents of children who are “identifying” as the opposite sex are actually allowing puberty-blocking hormones to be administered. This process is dangerous and will physically damage these children. Currently it is considered a highly questionable tactic, with many considering it a form of child abuse. Once a child starts down the chemical pathway, they must continue to take cross-sex hormones throughout their teenage years. Large doses of these cross-sex hormones have been identified to be highly dangerous and present extreme health risks.

It's legalized abuse?

When parents condition their young children into believing that impersonating the opposite sex is suitable, and even normal, they are indeed doing unmeasurable damage to the person. With a lifetime of chemical dependency, surgery, and societal rejection these children will live an unsatisfying life. Suicide rates for transgendered people are astronomical, with over 41% attempting suicide at least once in their lifetime (the general population average is 4.6 %.) Being bullied and ridiculed for following a path that has no clear end alienates these children and they struggle trying to adapt to the regular world. In most cases, the parents who enable this behavior could instead help their children by telling that any behavior that crosses sex lines in incorrect and should be avoided; sparing them from a life of despair. Yet, the lobbying by advocate groups who are seeking to advance their own agenda are being used as an attempt to legitimize this abuse behavior as normal development, when in fact it is anything but normal.

Regardless of the number of new terms for gender identity that emerge, the facts remain that gender is not biological and therefore irrelevant to any fact based conversation. Sexual attraction is an altogether different topic and has no bearing on this matter either. Giving a child dangerous drugs such as cocaine or heroin would be an immediate cause for arrest of the parents, as would using testosterone as a supplement for muscle building in adults, yet at this moment these dangerous hormones are legally given to our children with no arrests.

Summary

Controversial topic, but one that needs to be discussed with the facts, not the fiction, driving the dialogue.

Thanks for reading and sharing your thoughts.

    And if not for "rebels," this earth would have long ago dissipated from utter stagnation.

    Every great thinker, inventor, philosopher, scientist & author was a rebel. An individual who dared to question, doubt and search for truth. Every man woman end even child, who in the face of oppression or adversity broke through barriers by sheer will & determination.

    The rebel alone knows that when he's told he cannot, should not and dare not, proves repeatedly that he CAN, he WILL and dares someone to stop him.....

    Maybe at least some info worth reading here. Also, I can share my one & only experience here with "disabled ads." At least 3 yrs. ago, shortly after I published a hub, I received the "ads disabled" message on this hub along with the "reason why." Further, it was explained to me, if I edited (changed the verbiage) of the specific issue, sent them a email stating I did so, they would then enable ads on my hub.

    I did exactly what they suggested, in the way they expected, sent the "email" requested.....and not only did they not enable the ads, they never responded with a single word. No one, nothing~ just as if the interaction had never occurred. Just BOOM - subject dropped- (Thank you for doing as you were told little hubber but guess what? we really don't give a damn.)......That was a clear changing factor in my faith & trust in HP. I Don't bother to communicate with them unless seriously necessary & do not take anything they post as true. It takes only ONE time for me to be blatantly lied to for me to never believe that person ever again. My time & efforts are valuable & what I value most of all, is honesty.

    HP will tell us that it's not them, it's "google" & their rules & policies....and this may well be the case. Regardless, it's an issue that looks to be used according to THEIR discretion. "He who has the gold, makes the rules." Not much changes from day to day, does it.

    Obviously this site is run by liberals, and they will support and endorse any hubs that reflect those views. Hubs that do not will be penalized in some way. But that is just how the site is run.

    Wouldn't you be interested in a feasible explanation for this?

    By that I mean, one that a thinking, rational adult can comprehend as well as believe.......?

    Don't blame you a bit Ralph. I wonder if they even reviewed the hub before taking action. It is that weird witch that needs to be gone.

    I'm just ticked off that so many people can see a positive article but a single person can shut it down! I guess that's just like America - one transvestite wanting to pee in the little girls room is forcing the laws to be changed - despite that behavior being deviant.

    Ralph you are the second one today who has had trouble with HP censorship. He wrote a hub and was told no advertising would be allowed unless he revised the hub.

    I quit writing because I could not keep up with the daily changes and was accused of copied content.

    Perhaps all they really want published are the cake and cookies recipes. I wonder how cookie recipes are written but not accused of copied content.

    You are an outstanding writer and HP should be kissing your butt for all the traffic you generate for them. They can shut down my account anytime they want to. And yes they do lean way left.

    So - the fake witch reported this hub and now my earnings are disabled and I'm a bit miffed since it was getting a lot of traffic. Is Hubpages turning into an arm of the Democratic Party? Am I being unfairly discriminated against for speaking and supporting a real document issued by a credible organization? Facts being pushed aside for some social justice warrior being butt hurt????

    I am surprised she didn't at least post something in response - dropping a bomb and running away is way too similar to troll behavior. I don't care how bent she gets, I stand by my work as factual - it's amazing how the youth think that their personal agendas suddenly mean the rest of the wold should abruptly change in order to meet their needs. It makes me wonder what the political process will look like in 20-30 years when they are th majority of the electorate.

    You might also notice that Michela the Witch didn't come back to defend her position on the gender issue.

    Paula and others touched on the probability that some sick individuals will use this PC approach to their advantage to avoid arrest and prosecution when caught enjoying their "hobby". Why in the hell would any school system agree to allowing this to happen on their property?

    I long for the good ole day's where "No" was a simple but highly effective answer to issues like this.

Anyway, as I was saying, does she even have a political agenda? I doubt it. At this stage in her life, it's just ALL ABOUT HER/HIM/THEM.

    She'll find her way one day when she realizes that she's simply a victim of having watched way too much "Charmed" and reruns of Bewitched.

    Hey, we all liked Samantha Stevens & oh how I wish I could wiggle my nose & just see things appear & disappear.....like right now for instance.

    Yes, there are real witches and faux witches. Real witches do not announce the fact that they are witches; they follow a strict code. Fake witches are teenage girls who play pretend in order to get attention.

    LoliHey

    I have to agree, Paula. I see no hate speech here. Just someone overreacting because she has a different perspective. Would you really want some crazy man dressed as a woman going into a girl's bathroom, molesting her, and then lying and telling his lawyer and the police that he is a transgender? Then the lawyer makes a good case for it and wins. My mind wanders, yes, but you know sick people will take advantage of this. Had I a daughter, I'd be worried and would feel compelled to accompany her. Yes, I could totally see some predator sporting woman's clothes and going down a sick road, and then covering himself by claiming to be transgender.

    Now, what I've said is not hate speech. Just someone speculating on what could happen. It's a whole can of worms no one wants to deal with in the future. Just something to think about.

    Michaela...Please tell me UR comment is in Jest. I read the entire hub and every comment (as I always do unless there are hundreds of comments ahead of mine) and frankly, I see 4 adults (not counting myself & you) who have given their "opinion." Simply, their OPINION on the content of Ralph's hub.

    I read words of "disagreement" to the possibility that parents might allow their underage children to have major surgery & take hormones and/or chemicals.....as a responsible & reasonable parent, I AGREE with these concerns....wholeheartedly.

    I would also agree that "Rest rooms" should be private areas for each designated sex. Period. There's a door on every bathroom in every home for this SAME purpose. I don't KNOW for certain of course, but I just don't think brother & sisters use the home facilities for family get-togethers. Aren't we simply talking about matters of privacy, respect & decency? Hate speech?

    I'm sorry Michaela, I just don't GET this.

    You honestly believe this is HATE speech? I'm in shock. To WHOM or what is anyone directing HATE ? Can you explain your comment?

    Michaela Osiecki - Could you be more specific about what you found to be so offensive and "hate speech" in this hub or any of the comments?

    Could you also let us know exactly who you plan on reporting us to so we can be prepared?

    Your bio states you are a Practicing Witch, but says nothing about you being a liberal or progressive. I may be wrong but my guess would be you lean pretty far left.

  • tsadjatko profile image

    2 years ago from now on

    God has a plan for everyone's life. Often, perhaps always, his plan includes a cross you must bear. If these transgender people put their creator first in their lives, as did Jesus Christ whose cross (the sacrifice of his life for the sins of all humanity) he bore led him to sweat blood they would have a better time at sorting things out and seeking his will, not their own.

    It's pretty obvious that society isn't going to stop this type of physical changes, but they shouldn't be allowed until the person is 18 years old or whatever qualifies for a legal adult. A person in my state can't legally get a tattoo before that age, so what states are allowing kids gender changes legally?

    I personally believe that even if someone has a sex change, it doesn't make them another sex; maybe on the surface, but their DNA still remains intact after reassignment surgery. By attempting to normalize this behavior is almost as bad as abortion. It's mutilation of the natural state of a being, Thanks for sharing your thoughts OP - always a pleasure to get your take on controversial topics.

    Gee this fits right in with the recent developments of white's pretending they are black.

    Race and gender are just two of the "luck of the draw" things we humans can't control. To allow members of the opposite sex to use the wrong restroom because of who they think they are is just plain wrong. If I still had children in a school that was going to allow this to happen I would be taking them out of that school.

    Perhaps this is just another example of Political Correctness at the extreme. If parents are insistent their child should be able to use the restroom of the opposite sex I would suggest they proceed with a sex change operation for the child. A boy pretending to be a girl or vice-versa is not solving the real problem which is most likely psychological. There comes a point where we just need to say NO to issues like this.
