(Article is one year old, but worthy of a review)
The American College of Pediatricians issued a statement this week condemning gender reclassification in children by stating that transgenderism in children amounts to child abuse.
The American College of Pediatricians urges 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.
The policy statement, authored by Johns Hopkins Medical School Psychology Professor Paul McHugh, listed eight arguments on why gender reclassification is harmful.

2. No one is born with a gender. Everyone is born with a biological sex. Gender (an awareness and sense of oneself as male or female) is a sociological and psychological concept; not an objective biological one.
3. A persons belief that he or she is something they are not is, at best, a sign of confused thinking. 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.
4. Puberty is not a disease and puberty-blocking hormones can be dangerous. 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.
5. According to the DSM-V, as many as 98% of gender confused boys and 88% of gender confused girls eventually accept their biological sex after naturally passing through puberty.
6. Children who use puberty blockers to impersonate the opposite sex will require cross-sex hormones in late adolescence. Cross-sex hormones (testosterone and estrogen) are associated with dangerous health risks including but not limited to high blood pressure, blood clots, stroke and cancer.
7. Rates of suicide are twenty times greater among adults who use cross-sex hormones and undergo sex reassignment surgery, even in Sweden which is among the most LGBQT affirming countries.
8. Conditioning children into believing a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful as child abuse.
THIS collection of physicians is taking serious the part of their oath saying “DO NO HARM”. I commend them
If it’s child abuse for kids (yes), I fail to see how it’s a good thing for adults (it is not).
Somebody somewhere should use that in some sort of debate.
The idea of many genders is subjective.
Sex is scientific fact.
I knew this was somewhere — solid scientific evidence that so-called “trans-genderism” is a mental disorder. The fact most children who “identify” as the other sex end up OK after puberty is really important as an argument against those who say being gay used to be considered a mental disease.
I know it is, but when arguing with libs you have to bend like a reed on unimportant details to get the real data in.
Do you think for a second that if Hilary was in office this would be released ?!?!
If Hitlary were elected they may be serving jail time right now for daring to print it.
BTW - Hillary is someone who hates her "gender." She wishes she were a man.
I think it is funny that some feminoid confab recently asked the question whether Hillary would have won if she were a man - and they said she would have!!
What the hell!! Again I say WHAT THE HELL!!
If she had a penis she would have won the presidency?
I am so tired of all the gender crap.
The ones who wrote this article actually believe that life begins at conception!?!
Until the Conservative state legislatures, I mean the CUCKSERVATIVE state legislatures, pass laws making this child abuse, nothing will change.
There are probably laws on the books now, but the Cuckservatives have embraced transgenderism.
Some sanity for a change. Too bad this group is tiny compared to the American Academy of Pediatrics, who of course support the homo/trans agenda.
“Do you think for a second that if Hilary was in office this would be released ?!?!”
Well, that is because, just from looking at Hillary, you can’t really tell what gender Hillary is. I mean those pant-suits send a HUGE mixed message!
It has been , is , and will be a mental illness easily treated with shock treatments with the patient under anesthesia. Thye brain goes screwy and rebels against your obvious sex because you hate yourself.Probably you have good cause to hate yourself.But you have thye sex you were born with . You transfer your hate for yourself to self mutilation.It is very cvommon to see is eastetrn culrures.Some actually set themselves on fire with gasoline.That is an option. But here the self hater thinks it changed sex . It wants to be someone else besides itself.With the proper electro convulsive treatment ,this form of psychotic depression can be cured!!! I have reviewed many cases of sexual disorientation. It always goes back to self hatred and to parental rejection, abuse or absence between age 6 and 12. It can be altered to normal stae by electrical shock.But don’t normalize this illness .It is inhumane!!
I certainly hope this character owns a flame retardant suit.
Liberal fascist don’t like truth being thrown around like that.
That’s what I was wondering. Same with the head of the EPA saying that he doesn’t believe man is the primary cause of any warming.
Bookmarked for later distribution at liberal gatherings....AKA neigborhod BBQ
I believe this to be true in at least 99.44 percent of the cases.
It may indeed be true in all 100 pecent
the adults who promote this kind of krap on children should be locked up for the protection of society
