(National Sentinel)Â Sexual Identity: During a recent panel discussion, a pediatrician ranted about how wrong it is for Left-wing activists and teachers to convince children they are really a different gender, saying essentially that the condition is a manufactured construct and notÂ real.
Dr. Michelle Cretella went on a rather lengthy rant about the issue during a Heritage Foundation-sponsored forum, saying that indulging children who are gender-confused by helping them “transition” to the gender theyÂ think they are is essentially child abuse.
Chemical castration is what youâ€™re doing when you put any biologically normal child on puberty blockers. Itâ€™s treating puberty like a disease, arresting a normal process which is critical to normal development and bad for kids.
Sterilization: not good for kids. Prepping them for what will likely result in a case in girls a double mastectomy at 16 â€” not how you treat depression or anxiety and I have plenty of experience treating teenagers with depression, anxiety, even suicidal depression. Indoctrinating pre-school kids with the lie that you can be trapped in the wrong body, again, thatâ€™s disrupting their normal reality testing and cognitive development. Those things are abusive.
As to the studies, there are two that I am aware of that claim affirming your childâ€™s gender confusion is good for them. Number one, it assumes that coaching a child into a fixed-false belief is mentally healthy. Science doesnâ€™t allow you to assume your conclusion. Number two, those studies are extremely small. Number three, those studies are very short term. And number four, the control group of â€œmentally healthy childrenâ€ are the siblings, most of them are siblings of the trans-identifying child. Oh, and thereâ€™s a number five, the parents were the ones evaluating the mental health of the children.
This is not scienceâ€¦I donâ€™t think you need to have an M.D. or a Ph.D. to know thatâ€™s not science â€” thatâ€™s ideology masquerading as science.
