There is no such thing as a trans kid

You really have to wonder about some of the parents of today. In trying so hard to do the right things by their kids, they are setting them up for a miserable life. Those of us who have children who are now adults know that letting kids have everything they want is not necessarily a good thing. In fact, it can be disastrous for the children. These days, however, parents are being pushed into believing that identifying as a different gender from the one you were obviously born with is a good thing.

The consequences will be some crazy, mixed up adults and some people who will wish their parents had behaved like proper parents and thought about their children’s welfare first, instead of following the latest trends at the time. quote.

One of the great myths of the new, identitarian left is that the transgender movement is the political and spiritual heir to yesterday?s gay-rights movement. It isn?t. At all.

Most strikingly, where it was a nasty myth that gay campaigners were trying to mislead ?our youths?, unfortunately the same cannot be said of the trans movement.

Channel 4 aired Trans Kids: It?s Time to Talk. It was presented by psychotherapist and author Stella O?Malley. She made the point that when she was young, she was convinced she was a boy. Now, however, she is married ? to a man ? and has kids. She wondered what might have happened to her if she had been a boy-identifying girl today rather than in the 1980s. end quote.

An interesting question. Would yesterday’s tomboys all have been forced into sex-change operations just because they liked climbing trees? Is that what today’s children identifying as the opposite sex are – girls who are tomboys and boys who like design and hairdressing? quote.

It depends in large part on the parents, of course, and whether they are PC and child-centric or more firm and traditional: the former might buy into the trans eccentricity while the latter are less likely to. But it?s an inescapable fact that gender-confused young people are today being shoved towards diagnosis and treatment.

It?s happening more and more. The number of kids being referred to the NHS?s gender-service unit has risen by 2,500 per cent over the past nine years.
Young teenage girls are binding their breasts in the belief that they are really boys; young boys are increasingly being allowed to turn up to school in girls? clothes; and more teens are being prescribed drugs that hold back puberty, that essential, natural progression to adulthood.

It feels like children are being experimented on: both morally and physically. Morally in the sense that every traditional?, anchoring view of sex is being erased from their minds, and physically via drugs and hormone interventions. In order to give more weight to their own preferred lifestyles, some trans activists seem determined to hold up confused children as ?trans kids?, and, by extension, as proof that transgenderism is perfectly normal and can manifest in early years. They seem to view the disorientation of children as a price worth paying to add the legitimacy of nature to their way of life. Future generations will surely wonder why we behaved like this with children.

There is no such thing as a trans kid. That is an invention of adult activists, confused parents, and cowardly medical and educational establishments. Let kids be kids. If they?re confused, talk to them ? just don?t diagnose them as messed-up and in need of medical intervention.
