“The American College of Pediatricians urges healthcare professionals, 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.” – American College of Pediatricians, September 2017
It is difficult to imagine anything more potentially damaging to a child’s psyche than the ridiculous normalization of the “gender fluid” movement, particularly as it is imposed on them directly. The American College of Pediatricians flatly refers to it as “child abuse.”
An organization called “Gender Creative Kids” in Canada “provides resources for supporting and affirming gender creative kids within their families, schools and communities.” They received funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, as well as from TD Bank. One of the repeated goals of the organization is to combat “transphobia.”
They advertise a toy on their website for transgender kids. Watch:
One has to speculate about the rationale behind this effort to degrade gender identity. Is it to break down the family and therefore, the “patriarchy”? Is the goal to confuse children so that they become more malleable adults?
If adults are interested in a culture of drag, it is their choice. But imposing “gender fluidity” on children is becoming normalized by classrooms everywhere and such “mainstream” outlets as the New York Times, who published an article earlier this month titled: “My Gender Fluid Senior Prom.” Adults with common sense must stand up and fight to protect the most vulnerable among us.

According to the American College of Pediatricians, “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.” They note that “[R]ates of suicide are nearly twenty times greater among adults who use cross-sex hormones and undergo sex reassignment surgery, even in Sweden which is among the most LGBTQ – affirming countries.”
They ask the question:
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?
But Vice News fails to mention that:

Watch this video featuring “Desmond the Amazing,” an adorable child who refers to himself as a “drag kid.”
In this author’s opinion, the best way to deal with children who are confused about their gender is to practice kindness, patience, and understanding. In time, they will pass puberty and learn who they are. The answer is not to sexualize them and God forbid, do not medicate them!
