A Breath of Reality

Which, of course, will cause a great deal of puckered butts, fluttering stomachs, noses in the air, and screeching.

The American College of Pediatricians has issued a report to educators and legislators that states that “a life of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex” is dangerous for children.  Among the things that they point out that are obvious but not so clear to the biology-challenged:

"Human sexuality is an objective biological binary trait: “XY” and “XX” are genetic markers of health – not genetic markers of a disorder. The norm for human design is to be conceived either male or female. Human sexuality is binary by design with the obvious purpose being the reproduction and flourishing of our species. This principle is self-evident. The exceedingly rare disorders of sex development (DSDs), including but not limited to testicular feminization and congenital adrenal hyperplasia, are all medically identifiable deviations from the sexual binary norm, and are rightly recognized as disorders of human design. Individuals with DSDs do not constitute a third sex."
"A person’s belief that he or she is something they are not is, at best, a sign of confused thinking. When an otherwise healthy biological boy believes he is a girl, or an otherwise healthy biological girl believes she is a boy, an objective psychological problem exists that lies in the mind not the body, and it should be treated as such. These children suffer from gender dysphoria. 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).5 The psycho-dynamic and social learning theories of GD/GID have never been disproved."
"Rates of suicide are twenty times greater among adults who use cross-sex hormones and undergo sex reassignment surgery, even in Sweden which is among the most LGBQT – affirming countries.11 What compassionate and reasonable person would condemn young children to this fate knowing that after puberty as many as 88% of girls and 98% of boys will eventually accept reality and achieve a state of mental and physical health?" 
"Conditioning children into believing a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse."

But this is the era of feelings and this will hurt feelings.  The authors had best be prepared for vicious attacks. They had better be ready for legal action from the Obama administration.  The media has already made heroes of people who have demanded that their 9 year old boy or girl be allowed to live as the opposite sex forever and ever amen.  In reality those parents should have been called out as the disgraceful self-serving media whores that they are.  And their children should have been removed from their homes and placed in the care of real adults who understand the basics of xx and xy chromosomes, penises, and vaginas.

The same people who are content to bludgeon people with "the science is settled" while using a 97% number that is derived from a 4% response to a single survey will also totally ignore the reality of chromosomes and biology.  And, unable to respond with reality, they will seek to destroy.  I hope the authors of this report have a backup career ready and that they understand that they will now need to watch their backs.

  1. If someone is confused, and chooses to follow that path, that is their choice. It's when they demand the government force others that conflict results.


    1. We are talking children here. Nobody has a right to abuse them in any way.

  2. Agreed! 100% WRONG to force this on children!
