Skip to comments.I’m a Pediatrician. Here’s What I Did When a Little Boy Patient Said He Was a Girl.

“Congratulations, it’s a boy!” Or, “Congratulations, it’s a girl!”
As a pediatrician for nearly 20 years, that’s how many of my patient relationships began. Our bodies declare our sex.
Biological sex is not assigned. Sex is determined at conception by our DNA and is stamped into every cell of our bodies. Human sexuality is binary. You either have a normal Y chromosome, and develop into a male, or you don’t, and you will develop into a female. There are at least 6,500 genetic differences between men and women. Hormones and surgery cannot change this.
An identity is not biological, it is psychological. It has to do with thinking and feeling. Thoughts and feelings are not biologically hardwired. Our thinking and feeling may be factually right or factually wrong.
If I walk into my doctor’s office today and say, “Hi, I’m Margaret Thatcher,” my physician will say I am delusional and give me an anti-psychotic. Yet, if instead, I walked in and said, “I’m a man,” he would say, “Congratulations, you’re transgender.”
If I were to say, “Doc, I am suicidal because I’m an amputee trapped in a normal body, please cut off my leg,” I will be diagnosed with body identity integrity disorder. But if I walk into that doctors office and say, “I am a man, sign me up for a double mastectomy,” my physician will. See, if you want to cut off a leg or an arm you’re mentally ill, but if you want to cut off healthy breasts or a penis, you’re transgender.
No one is born transgender. If gender identity were hardwired in the brain before birth, identical twins would have the same gender identity 100 percent of the time. But they don’t.
I had one patient we’ll call Andy. Between the ages of 3 and 5, he increasingly played with girls and “girl toys” and said he was a girl. I referred the parents and Andy to a therapist. Sometimes mental illness of a parent or abuse of the child are factors, but more commonly, the child has misperceived family dynamics and internalized a false belief.
In the middle of one session, Andy put down the toy truck, held onto a Barbie, and said, “Mommy and Daddy, you don’t love me when I’m a boy.” When Andy was 3, his sister with special needs was born, and required significantly more of his parents’ attention. Andy misperceived this as “Mommy and Daddy love girls. If I want them to love me, I have to be a girl.” With family therapy Andy got better.
Today, Andy’s parents would be told, “This is who Andy really is. You must ensure that everyone treats him as a girl, or else he will commit suicide.”
As Andy approaches puberty, the experts would put him on puberty blockers so he can continue to impersonate a girl.
It doesn’t matter that we’ve never tested puberty blockers in biologically normal children. It doesnt matter that when blockers are used to treat prostate cancer in men, and gynecological problems in women, they cause problems with memory. We don’t need testing. We need to arrest his physical development now, or he will kill himself.
But this is not true. Instead, when supported in their biological sex through natural puberty, the vast majority of gender-confused children get better. Yet, we chemically castrate gender-confused children with puberty blockers. Then we permanently sterilize many of them by adding cross-sex hormones, which also put them at risk for heart disease, strokes, diabetes, cancers, and even the very emotional problems that the gender experts claim to be treating.
P.S. If a girl who insists she is male has been on testosterone daily for one year, she is cleared to get a bilateral mastectomy at age 16. Mind you, the American Academy of Pediatrics recently came out with a report that urges pediatricians to caution teenagers about getting tattoos because they are essentially permanent and can cause scarring. But this same AAP is 110 percent in support of 16-year-old girls getting a double mastectomy, even without parental consent, so long as the girl insists that she is a man, and has been taking testosterone daily for one year.
To indoctrinate all children from preschool forward with the lie that they could be trapped in the wrong body disrupts the very foundation of a child’s reality testing. If they can’t trust the reality of their physical bodies, who or what can they trust? Transgender ideology in schools is psychological abuse that often leads to chemical castration, sterilization, and surgical mutilation.
An excellent, efficiently written piece that cannot be honestly rebutted.
Thank you Dr.
Truth and common sense, wow.
Mommy and Daddy, you dont love me when Im a boy.
This Doc is on target. I do a special type psychological testing that identifies the stored memories of an individual’s life back to conception, without the saying one word.
When I touch these memories far from the physical body, it very often knocks a person off their feet. I feel the stored memories as physical objects.
If a child is unwanted,they know it while in their mother’s womb. The child in the womb experiences the mother’s life experiences as their own.
If a father wants a boy and the child is a girl, it knocks her backward 50 years later when I touch the stored memory.
Gender identity is totally a function of the dominant aspect of consciousness in the soul.. Many factors can influence this.
I have worked with many gay and lesbians. It is not difficult to identify when the shift occurred. A very high percentage of lesbians, I have found that the mother was angry at the father when she was pregnant with the daughter.
THIS is not psychic, it is science just as x rays are to bones.
I believe that you will find stories similar to this in any transgender persons history. I blame the parents......I suspect that many Leftist parents want to be held up as extremely tolerant by their Leftist peers. They encourage the LGBTQ behaviors for theiri child so they can reap the rewards of the attention of their identity group. The child is the one who suffers for the rest of their life.......breaks my heart.
And suicide at a 42% rate.
Human consciousness is in a field that at a minimum is 15 feet from the physical body in all directions. This field is often referred to as the soul.
The body does not create the soul. It is the energy that gives life to the physical body, and the physical person dies when it detaches. The soul is perpetual, even without the physical body.
All souls have two aspects of consciousness spinning in them in opposite directions. Masculine consciousness spins left. Feminine consciousness spins right. Memories are stored as holograms at the intersection of the two aspects of consciousness. Which ever field is dominant determines gender identity and relationship attraction.
Absolutely! The people who hear a child say “Mommy, I want to be a girl” and rush him to the surgeon to chop off his d*ck, are insane child abusers.
Instead, today, because of the mass hysteria over “transgender$hit”, some people say they have to mutilate the child.
It is mass stupidity and insanity.
It should never be gorgotten that therapists and parents project their own neuroses and at times overt psychosis on their patients and children. A good therapist is aware of projection and when evaluating any child always makes an assessment if the parents truly bonded with the child. When a parent insists on gender reassignment ,it is usually the pathology of the parent that is being manifested. As the article outlines, the helpless child is merely trying to please a bizarre parent. Sadly the American Psychological Association is overtly political and promotes the trend of the day.

Big problem is that many have adopted a philosophy which allows one to believe that whatever they perceive IS reality. There is no ruling objective reality. Therefore whatever they do to butress or act out their own belief is good. Self defining reality and/or worship is an accepted valid paradigm. There are people reported to think they are space aliens...or marry buildings or porpoises...you get the picture...societal philosophical suicide...
You are absolutely right - having a gender/sexually deluded (or perhaps deceived) child is a kind of status symbol amongst leftists. There are occasionally cases where gender is not entirely clear when a child is born, and of course that is different. But, in most cases, kids are being recruited and steered to this crap, and that is IMHO criminal.
My research has shown that the third month of pregnancy is critical relating to gender identity development. When the neural tube is forming that becomes the brain stem and spinal cord.
It has to do with bonding and attachment, as researched by Bowlby and Ainsworth. I have found this shift in autism.
It causes the thalamus to prioritize masculine consciousness. It is easy to explain and demonstrate.
Wow, this so called doctor is a heartless Transphobic bigot. How dare she drop all those truth bombs on people!
Who does she think she is, a professional physician and scientist? Why would she know more than a sexually confused, mentally ill person who knows deep down that they were simply born in the wrong body?
She should be punished and maybe put in jail. /s/
Does anyone else find it odd that the same people who would castrate a little boy because he picks up a Barbie would tell a little girl who pickup a Barbie to put it down and take the truck?
