The American College of Pediatricians has issued a statement that is shocking in its frankness and lack of sensitivity to the many Social Justice WarriorsTM who have been rushing headlong into the miasma of mental illness known as gender dysphoria. Yes, it is a “temporary statement” that will be finalized and published in the summer, but any organization that can make an unequivocal statement that gender dysphoria is a psychological condition is one that is on the right track.
The American College of Pediatricians urges educators and legislators to reject all policies that condition children to accept as normal a life of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex. Facts – not ideology – determine reality.
It’s bad enough when adults with these psychological issues are allowed to mutilate themselves with hormone therapy and surgery, but when parents allow their children to be mutilated instead of cared for it is a particularly egregious and shocking thing. Who would have thought that The American College of Pediatricians is willing to stand up to what will undoubtedly be intense pressure from militant sex warriors! But…based on the full text of the statement they are ready. It is a full-throated denunciation of the insanity that is America’s — or rather the MSM’s — current stance on a small minority of people who need significant psychiatric care, but are offered nothing but approval of their dysfunction.

Go read the whole thing…it’s marvelous. And then make sure that your kids’ pediatrician agrees with it!
