On last Sunday night’s episode of 60 Minutes, we watched as Patrick Mitchell and his mother shared their story. Patrick thought he should have been born a girl, so, his mother helped to facilitate his transition by providing him with hormone blockers. You can watch the story here.
But, as with most children (around 90%) who struggle with gender dysphoria, by age 14, Patrick felt comfortable living as a boy.
But the damage had already been done. Patrick now has breasts and at age 14, plans to undergo a risky mastectomy.
Since the advent of Safe Schools, the cases of ‘Gender Dysphoria’ have dramatically increased and in 2015, Safe Schools revealed:
“We also provided tailored assistance for more than 80 schools just in 2015 that were supporting individual students affirming their gender identity. Requests for support in this area by both secondary schools and primary schools are growing…”
Michelle Cretella, M.D., is president of the American College of Pediatricians. Her 2016 peer reviewed article, “Gender Dysphoria in Children and Suppression of Debate,” revealed that professionals who dare to question the unscientific party line of supporting gender transition therapy will find themselves maligned and out of a job.
“Transgender ideology … is intruding into the lives of the most innocent among us — children — and with the apparent growing support of the professional medical community,” Cretella said.
And she told Fox News “Sex is hardwired from before birth, and it cannot change, and that’s why we actually called this child abuse. By feeding children and families these lies (about gender fluidity and the safety of “transition-affirming protocols”), children are having their normal psychological development interrupted, they’re being put on the puberty blockers which essentially castrates them chemically, followed by surgical mutilation later on. This is child abuse. This is not health care.”
Three medical professionals co-authored an article entitled “Growing Pains
Problems with Puberty Suppression in Treating Gender Dysphoria” — Dr. Paul W. Hruz, a professor at Washington University School of Medicine, Dr. Lawrence S. Mayer, professor at Arizona State University and scholar at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Dr. Paul R. McHugh, University Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
They highlighted four major problems with puberty blockers:
- Puberty blockers prolong gender dysphoria in children who would otherwise outgrow it.
- Puberty blockers are experimental, at best.
- It’s likely not reversible. For Patrick, surgery is his only option and many can’t afford it.
- Puberty blockers can cause damaging health effects.
The Daily Signal: “In both boys and girls, it negatively impacts their growth rates in terms of height. Children placed on puberty blockers also have an increased risk of low bone-mineral density. Hruz notes that ‘[o]ther potential adverse effects include disfiguring acne, high blood pressure, weight gain, abnormal glucose tolerance, breast cancer, liver disease, thrombosis, and cardiovascular disease.'”
According to the last Census, 0.3% of Australians identify as Transgender.
Safe Schools is driving the push to mainstream Gender Theory, resulting in a dramatic increase in the use of harmful treatments like Hormone Blockers on young children, who would otherwise outgrow the condition unscathed and fully capable of accepting their biological sex.
