American College of Pediatric decision: Transgenderism of children is child abuse
#1
Finally, a medical group actually cites scientific principles to explain gender and how gender reclassification of children is totally wrong on many levels. Here's a decently written article on the matter:

American College of Pediatrics reaches decision: Transgenderism of children is child abuse - Frontlines News
3 minutes

The American College of Pediatricians issued a statement 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.”

BY Michael Dorstewitz

The policy statement, authored by Johns Hopkins Medical School Psychology Professor Paul McHugh, listed eight arguments on why gender reclassification is harmful.

1. Human sexuality is an objective biological binary trait: “XY” and “XX” are genetic markers of health – not genetic markers of a disorder.

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 person’s 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.

I'm just waiting for the media firestorm and the eventual apologies and retraction. I hate to be cynical but I can't help it.
Walk before God in simplicity, and not in subtleties of the mind. Simplicity brings faith; but subtle and intricate speculations bring conceit; and conceit brings withdrawal from God. -Saint Isaac of Syria, Directions on Spiritual Training


"It is impossible in human terms to exaggerate the importance of being in a church or chapel before the Blessed Sacrament as often and for as long as our duties and state of life allow. I very seldom repeat what I say. Let me repeat this sentence. It is impossible in human language to exaggerate the importance of being in a chapel or church before the Blessed Sacrament as often and for as long as our duties and state of life allow. That sentence is the talisman of the highest sanctity. "Father John Hardon

It's important to know that there is a difference between the American College of Pediatricians, which is labeled a hate group by the SPCA for its conservative views on LMNOP issues and the more widely recognized politically correct American Academy of Pediatrics.

Unfortunately, the first group is not often cited on such "news" outlets as CNN.

Excellent statement, except for its definition of gender in paragraph 2. There's no such thing as gender, except grammatically. People have a sex, and they either believe themselves to be that sex, which is normal, or they don't, which isn't. There's no need for a separate term. We don't have separate terms for other physical characteristics and how one identifies with those characteristics, so why have one for sex?

Looks like the group is also highly censored when not Politically Correct as well.

Youtube also censored this doctor who is a spokesperson for them but an altered version has been allowed:

But they need to create a "gender spectrum" and start with 600 "genders" so they can reach their goal of having:

Finally some common sense.

Even a 16 year old is not mature enough to make the transgender decision, yet an 8, 10 or 12 year old is expect to. That is insane.

Okay? And? It's about time the scientific world catches up to ethics.

Does anyone else find it sad that we need to wait for scientific affirmation of morality today?
