The New York Times is Promoting Child Abuse

(Before It's News)

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, transgenderism is the shiny new gender campaign which is being shoved down our throats.

We’re told that we must accept individuals who identify as such or we’re hateful haters who are blinded by our transphobia. After all, it’s 2017! Feelings rule.

It’s one thing if you qualify as an adult and choose to transform your God-given body into a cheap copycat version of the other gender. You’re free to do so. You can take hormones and undergo whatever surgical mutilation transformation you want. I disagree with it and believe it’s an indication of mental illness, but still, it’s your choice.

Kids, however, are another issue entirely.

Some adults see gender issues around every corner. In fact, some see transgender issues in children and then begin a quest to “help” those children pursue their own transgender fantasies. It’s bad when any adult acts as a friend instead of a parent, and refuses to instruct and lead. It’s almost worse when those in the medical community salivate at the chance to “help” these children, and destroy the inherent all for the sake of feelings.

On Sunday, The New York Times published an opinion piece called Hannah Is a Girl. Doctors Finally Treat Her Like One. The author is a research fellow named Jack Turban who works at the Yale School of Medicine. It is downright revolting to hear someone in the medical community approve and promote transgenderism among children.

In it the author discusses the aforementioned subject, Hannah, who is actually a boy, but on her way to becoming a girl, all Caitlyn Jenner-style. He is 14. Turban happily writes…

Hannah is using a puberty-blocking implant and getting ready to embark on the path of developing a female body by starting estrogen. Ten years ago most doctors would have called this malpractice. New data has now made it the protocol for thousands of American children.

From malpractice…to protocol? For our children? Entirely unacceptable. He continues…

As I talk to Hannah, I can’t help thinking how different things would have been just 10 years ago.

Fortunately, most doctors no longer think this way. In 2012, Dr. Diane Ehrensaft from the University of California, San Francisco, proposed “true gender self child therapy,” in which even the youngest children are allowed to explore their gender identity, with all outcomes (transgender or not) being treated as equally desirable.

Turban continues with the following, and acts like this is a good way of proceeding with changing the God-given characteristics in each child.

Once transgender youth hit puberty, their gender identity is unlikely to change. At that point, doctors often consider medical interventions. The puberty blocker is the first step. In the unlikely event that a child were to change her mind about being transgender, we could remove the implant, and she would then go through male puberty. The implant has some mild side effects, most notably a decrease in bone density, but that quickly improves after the removal of the implant or the initiation of cross-sex hormones like estrogen or testosterone.

The effects of cross-sex hormones like estrogen are not easily reversible. The hormones can impair fertility, but transgender teens are offered fertility preservation options before that stage, like freezing sperm or eggs. Surgery, which often follows in young adulthood, is also, of course, essentially permanent.

Puberty used to be a dangerous time for transgender youth.

Let’s not act like that has changed…

At the Gender Management Service at Boston Children’s Hospital, I saw a transgender girl so repulsed by her genitalia that she willed herself not to go to the bathroom and suffered intestinal damage that required surgery. A transgender boy had a painful infection from the contraption he was using to bind his breasts. Countless adolescents came to emergency rooms after suicide attempts.

He ends with the following, emphasis mine.

Doctors once argued that it would be insane to block a child’s puberty and change her body. Seeing Hannah as a happy and thriving teenager, I now see it would be insane not to.

To be sure
