Transgender movement taking advantage of kids

Transgender reader threeChildren are reportedly being sold out to the transgender movement in many ways – including through the use of social media.

Young people are being bombarded with messages saying that it is perfectly fine to live as the opposite gender, and too many parents are buying the idea.

In fact, there are reports of doctors surgically removing breasts of 13-year-old girls who contend that they were born into the wrong body.

Dr. Michelle Cretella of the American College of Pediatricians told OneNewsNow that such medical practices constitute outright child abuse.

The medical expert argues that no one is born trapped in the wrong body.

“These children who feel like they don't belong in their sex – this is a sign of an underlying mental disorder,” Cretella asserted. “Could be trauma, depression, anxiety – something else in the child's life, either in the past or the present, is triggering this.”

A considerable number of youths are encouraged through social contagion – in other words, peers encouraging it, what they are being taught in school and also social media sites that they frequent.

“Many of these sites have pages that are maintained by adult transgender activists who convince these kids that what they need to be happy are hormones and surgeries so that they can impersonate the opposite sex,” Cretella asserted.

The pediatrician contends that in actuality, a young person with a transgender state of mind needs psychological counseling to align with their born gender – not surgery and hormone treatment.

Cretella went on to add that parents need to become better educated, have conversations with their children and not allow themselves to be fooled, as well as come to the understanding that most kids grow out of the condition as they advance into upper teens.
