In recent years we have all seen a sudden increase in Transgenderism. However, it has become more mainstream and prevelent in the past year, and has now made its way into the Pediatric field.
Michelle Cretella M.D. who has served as not only a board member and researcher at the American College of Pediatricians for twelve years, she has also served as its President for three. She has also sat at the board of directors for the Allience for Therapeutic Choice and Scientific Integrity from 2010-2015.
Michelle has dealt with this new form of child abuse, personally. She has also explained how the transgender phenomenon has infiltrated her field of work. Cretella claims that transgender ideology is not rooted in reality. Is she correct? In a word, yes.
If transgenderism was in fact rooted in biology, then twins with identical DNA should naturally identify as transgender 100 percent of the time. However, in a study conducted by Dr. Milton Diamond in 2013, he found that only 28 percent of these identical twins identified as transgender, while the remaining 71 percent differed. The 28 percent suggests at best, there is a minimal biological impact. This means, that transgenderism will not manifest itself without outside nonbiological factors taking place and influencing how these twins identified.
Keeping that in mind, biologically, sex is chosen before birth, not assigned at birth as we are now being told. Sex, genetics, race, and age cannot be changed. They are not subjective, much to the disbelief of the left.
Children aged 3-10 engage in what’s known as, ‘fantasy play.’ Fantasy play as we know it best, includes dress-up, make believe, etc. This is completely natural as well as critical for development. It not only aids in creativity in general, it also forms the bridge for important adulthood based skills such as empathy, and social competence with peers.
Children often make themselves into something else such as animals, or the opposite gender as a form of play. However, when this is taken seriously, and parents take their children to a pediatrician, or therapist, this is when we start on step on the brink of child abuse.
According to the American Psychological Association’s Handbook of Sexuality and Psychology, 75-95 percent of pre-pubertal children who were distressed by their sex, came to outgrow their distress by adolescense (ages 10-19) after passing naturally through puberty. 98 percent of boys came to accept and identify with their biological sex naturally, and 88 percent of girls did as well. This overwhelmingly proves that transgenderism is not as common as we are being told.
In the United Kingdom, the Gender Identity Development Service has seen an overwhelming 2,000 percent increase in referrals since 2009. This begs the question, “What happens to those children?” This is where we go from being on the brink of child abuse, to full on psychological and physical abuse and mutilation.
Guidlines clearly state puberty blockers are supposed to be administered to minors aged 11-12. It is important to mention here, forethought, or careful consideration of what will be necessary, or what will happen in the future, is not developed until late adolescense. From this we can conclude that the administration of puberty blockers is done without the ability of these children to comprehend what the future impact on their bodies will be.
Firstly, the long term effects of cross-sex hormones have yet to be studied, this means they are being administered with no track record of what may happen to these children’s bodies in the future. We do know, however, what they do to adults. They include impacts on memory, cardiac disease, blood clots, strokes, diabetes, cancer and disrupted cognitive ability. The idea that these hormones will not have negative long term effects on pre-pubescent children is not only false, it’s ludacris. Using these hormones on children is nothing short of child abuse, not healthcare.
The hormones disrupt the normal psychological development, and chemically castrate them, making these children sterile for life. That is then followed by the eventual mutilation of their bodies. Double mastectomy’s in transgender children is legal at age 18, but that is currently being challenged as some doctors are trying to get that age lowered. The argument being, if a teenager of 16 years old can get breast implants with parental permission, why can’t they make the decision to have their breasts removed as well. Even though it is not recommended that these hormones be administered until ages 11-12, there have been cases of children as young as 9 being put on them.
Pediatricians recommend the loving solution for parents is to nurture your children through natural pubery and late adolescense, as only .07 percent will naturally identify as transgender.
Before considering the medical route, here are some questions for you to ask yourself about your child:
Is it a phase?
Is this something we can change?
Is this normal behavior in accordance with his/her age?
