Exclusive: Linda Harvey urges ending of chemical, surgical manipulation of minors
Bathrooms are useful, it seems, for more than just bodily necessities.
In the recent federal transgender bathroom mandate, Obama and his pro-homosexual and pro-transgender agencies attempt to use children and bathrooms to unilaterally overhaul civil rights law in this country.
But the real violation of Title VII and Title IX sex discrimination law is the compromised privacy rights of authentic girls and boys. Let’s encourage more lawsuits along these lines.
And safety for women and girls is not all that’s at stake in North Carolina, in Texas, in Target stores and in countless other communities in America. That has quickly become the main talking point on the widening “bathroom” battleground.
But we cheat our children if we refrain from voicing the whole danger. We must stand against the legitimization of chemical and surgical child abuse, sanctioned by parents and prescribed by some misguided physicians.
And championed by our president, God help us.
If we permit boys in the girls’ restrooms, we have confirmed that such self-destructive paths for youth are acceptable. The anchorless children whose parents are letting them live out gender-switching preferences would, without intervention, most likely accept their biological sex within 10 years, according to the American College of Pediatricians.
It’s time to set some clear policy standards on a state-by-state basis.
America must say NO to the gender manipulation of minors. Both physicians and parents need to be held civilly and possibly criminally liable for taking vulnerable children down these roads.
Gender-troubled youth themselves are victims, yet not of conventional male/female sex distinctions, but of adults who enable them to embrace the demonic delusion of being the opposite sex.
It’s mental illness, and some of the top experts in the field are not afraid to say so. It’s also deep spiritual oppression.
But if we let Obama and Loretta Lynch get away with this abuse of power – which is worthy of impeachment – it will enshrine deviance as a new civil right and subject those who disagree to an unprecedented wave of judicial and legal persecution.
For instance, your parental rights to even consider your daughter a girl may be in jeopardy, as in a recent Canadian case.
A judge in British Columbia ordered hormone blockers to be continued for an 11-year-old girl who says she wants to be a boy, despite her father’s objections. His ex-wife has approved this radical, high-risk medical treatment.
This is where American law is heading if schools are bullied into affirming this insanity. Until we as a society are willing to shun, confront, un-elect or sue people doing this to children, these horrific practices will escalate. There will always be sexually liberal politicians and educators, activist judges or greedy physicians willing to go along with violating the bodily integrity of temporarily confused children.
What is essentially medical malpractice on younger and younger patients will continue until we address the issue, legislatively if necessary.
How long before middle school boys can be surgically castrated? And the mainstream media cheer? The New York Times already celebrates such heartbreaking mutilation of an 18- year-old boy. Soon they will gush over 16-year-olds, 14-year-olds, or 12-year-olds – if we let it come to this.
Surgical removal of girls’ healthy breasts is now being done as early as age 16 by surgeons in Boston.
The why this is still mental illness:
“Gender dysphoria (GD), formerly listed as Gender Identity Disorder (GID), is a recognized mental disorder in the most recent edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association (DSM-V).”
The re-write of that definition was loaded with politics, not science, as WND’s David Kupelian describes.
How can a gender-pretender identity be enthusiastically promoted to minors who can’t even take a Tylenol at school, or get their ears pierced, without 10 forms being signed?
Bathroom access is not “safety” for these confused kids. Safety would be acting in accordance with biology. They are choosing – with the cooperation of adults – to live life unsafely.
But some doctors are jumping on board the medical child abuse train. Current “treatment” of a 10-year-old whose irresponsible parents consent to gender “transitioning” will first involve hormone-blocking drugs to slow down the normal process of puberty.
Just think about that: interrupting a child’s maturation and development.
The American College of Pediatricians says:
“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.”
Then the child by age 16 makes a decision. Change or not? If yes, opposite sex hormones are administered. Boys are given estrogen so male sex characteristics are inhibited.
Does this have an impact on fertility? Yes. Many teens who receive this treatment will become infertile. Girls stop developing eggs, for instance. Mentally disturbed adolescents should not be given such a life-limiting choice.
But the risk is not just infertility. ACPeds has sobering advice:
“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.”
All this leads to the “hope” of surgery. Girls can now have healthy breasts removed at age 16 and males at 18 can be surgically castrated.
Walt Heyer is an ex-transgender who deeply regrets having this surgery and living for eight years as a woman. He writes eloquently about the need to be very cautious about embracing transgender identities for youth.
Should states initiate legislation to regulate this exploitation of children? I believe so, the sooner the better.
And in no case should these identities be embraced as “normal” or healthy. All the indicators are clearly the opposite, and compassion compels us to act to protect these children – and their peers.
And Obama’s edict? Schools should just say “no.”
