Child Abuse through Gender Reassignment
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.
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.
Controversial topic, but one that needs to be discussed with the facts, not the fiction, driving the dialogue.
