Transgender hormone blockers are ‘institutionalized child abuse’: pediatrician

“Chemical castration is what you’re doing when you put any biologically normal child on puberty blockers,” said Dr. Cretella, the president of the American College of Pediatricians. “It’s treating puberty like a disease, arresting a normal process which is critical to normal development.”

The doctor’s truth crusade did not stop there. “Sterilization is not good for kids,” she flatly stated. “Prepping them for what will likely result in a case in girls of a double mastectomy at 16 is not how you treat depression or anxiety.”  

She added that she speaks from a great deal of personal experience in “treating teenagers with depression, anxiety, even suicidal depression.”

Transgender ideologues like Zack Ford at ThinkProgress tell parents to observe and let their 1 ½-year-old’s behavior gauge his/her/ze’s gender. “Children as young as 18 months can begin to articulate aspects of their gender,” Ford claimed, “and it’s the children themselves who tell their parents about their gender identity.”

Cretella spoke against such agenda-driven use of youngsters. “Indoctrinating preschool kids with the lie that you can be trapped in the wrong body … disrupt(s) their normal reality testing and cognitive development,” she explained. “Those things are abusive.”

At the Heritage Foundation forum in Washington D.C., Dr. Cretella effectively and logically refuted two LBGTQI studies that claimed that affirming your child’s gender confusion is good for them, and pointed out the underlying issue in the politics of transition affirming protocol:

“This is not science,” Dr. Cretella concluded regarding the two pro-trans studies. “I don’t think you need to have an M.D. or a Ph.D. to know that’s not science — that’s ideology masquerading as science.”

“The crux of the matter is that while the transition-affirming movement purports to help children, it is inflicting a grave injustice on them and their non-dysphoric peers,” Cretella explained in an article for the Daily Signal.

She charged LGBTQI-friendly professionals with engaging in “massive, uncontrolled, and unconsented experimentation on children.” She said gender confusion is quite common in preadolescents and adolescents and it most often resolves after puberty.

“Today’s institutions that promote transition affirmation are pushing children to impersonate the opposite sex,” she said, “sending many of them down the path of puberty blockers, sterilization, the removal of healthy body parts, and untold psychological damage.” Cretella labeled this promotion of transgenderism “nothing less than institutionalized child abuse.” She called for “an immediate end” to “pubertal suppression, cross-sex hormones, and sex reassignment surgeries in children and adolescents, as well as an end to promoting gender ideology via school curricula and legislative policies.”

I like you, you use facts and sources. I have said this many times, Trannies are mentally unstable people who need mental care, not surgery.

And we can see clearly that the people in positions of power that are aggressively pushing the transition affirming protocol are psychopaths. They are not only abusing the population of kids (gender dysphoric) but are creating the condition itself and then promoting crimes against humanity to treat it, such as mutilation and medical experimentation on subjects not capable of comprehending the implications and risks of what they have been socially prompted to ask for or agree to. The protocol itself is a perverse blend of interrogation, social pressure 'to be different' and brainwashing (of child AND parent) along with mind/body/emotion/developmental altering hormones.

Even the American Psychological Association’s Handbook of Sexuality and Psychology admits that prior to the widespread promotion of transition affirmation, 75 to 95 percent of pre-pubertal children who were distressed by their biological sex eventually outgrew that distress. The vast majority came to accept their biological sex by late adolescence after passing naturally through puberty.

But with transition affirmation now increasing in Western society, the number of children claiming distress over their gender—and their persistence over time—has dramatically increased. For example, the Gender Identity Development Service in the United Kingdom alone has seen a 2,000 percent increase in referrals since 2009.

Only psychopaths would inflict this Nazi level of socio-medical experimentation to achieve a perverse political social agenda. Only sadists would rob a child of the chance of having the issues resolve after puberty and leave them sterilized with micro penis' and colon smelling surgical vaginas, or double mastectomies. In essence, they are robbing the young gender dysphoric population of their best statistical chance of living a happy life.

There is a one-shot cure.

“Sterilization is not good for kids,”

It blows my mind that there are parents who don't understand this.

Its not a child, its a living doll to play dress up with and change things.

This is a parent with issues and blind faith in authoritative figures like a doctor or psychologist who also has issues with authoritative figures leading them to believe the most asinine "science" and "medical treatments" possible. Common sense goes out the window and gets replaced by faith that wishy washy "science" is going to cure a bad self image.

All that will be left of this child is some kind of disjointed being with no actual identity of its own that it wasn't suggested, implied, coerced into assuming. This trend will go down in history like lobotomies, electro shock, housewife pills of the 50s, it will be seen as backwards, barbaric, and foolish.

But think of all the likes this will pull in on Facebook. Look at how virtuous and open-minded I am.
