Planned Parenthood: How To Teach Children Transgenderism Is Normal

Planned Parenthood, the taxpayer funded leftist-indoctrinating abortion mill, has issued guidelines on how to talk to preschoolers about gender rolls, masturbation, sexuality, transgerderism.

Planned Parenthood has decided that children as young as 4 should be instructed that gender and sex are different and that their genitals don’t indicate their gender.

The abortion provider issued new guidelines for parents on their website instructing them to tell inquiring children that, though boys and girls have different bodies, they shouldn’t pay attention to that, they can be whatever they want to be.

In a piece titled: “How do I talk with my preschooler about their body?” they show parent how to introduce the concept of transgender identity.

While the most simple answer is that girls have vulvas and boys have penises/testicles, that answer isn’t true for every boy and girl. Boy, girl, man and woman are words that describe gender identity, and some people with the gender identities ‘boy’ or ‘man’ have vulvas, and some with the gender identity ‘girl’ or ‘woman’ have penises/testicles. Your genitals don’t make you a boy or a girl.

So now, not only is the largest provider of abortion in the U.S. having their abortion industry subsidized by taxpayers, public funds are also furthering the indoctrination of children in a rejection of basic biology.  WesternFreePress

What should I teach my preschooler about sex and sexuality?  DailyWire

Canadian Parent Fights To Omit Gender On Child’s Birth Certificate

This is ridiculous and heartbreaking. That poor child.

Kori Doty identifies as neither male nor female, and wants their child to be able to do the same.

A parent in B.C.’s Slocan Valley is fighting to omit their child’s sex on their birth certificate as part of a broader effort to keep gender from being included on government documents.

Kori Doty gave birth to Searyl Atli at a friend’s home last November. Doty, a non-binary trans parent who doesn’t identify as either male or female, (and prefers to use the pronoun they), wants to keep Searyl’s gender off all official records.

“I’m raising Searyl in such a way that until they have the sense of self and command of vocabulary to tell me who they are, I’m recognizing them as a baby and trying to give them all the love and support to be the most whole person that they can be outside of the restrictions that come with the boy box and the girl box,” Doty said.

Doty says the province is refusing to issue Searyl a birth certificate with no gender on it, although last month the province did acquiesce and send out the child’s health card with a “U” for gender, presumably for “undetermined” or “unassigned,” so they could access medical services. CBA

Pediatrician: How Transgender Ideology Has Infiltrated My Field And Produced Large-Scale Child Abuse

Michelle Cretella, M.D. is president of the American College of Pediatricians.

She criticized the transition-affirming view that holds children who “consistently and persistently insist” that they are not the gender they were born with are innately transgender.

Cretella said that such a view leads parents to put their children on puberty blockers, to give them cross-sex hormones, eventually leading to genital reassignment surgeries.

The pediatrician warned that despite the acceptance of this movement in the media, plenty of institutions and professionals in the field disagree with what she described as a “deeply flawed narrative.”

Cretella then listed what she said were eight different factual statements that counter the transition-affirming view, which can be read in full in the The Daily Signal article.

Among them, she notes studies that prove that no one is born “trapped in the body of the wrong sex,” and that puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones carry dangerous health risks.

“The crux of the matter is that while the transition-affirming movement purports to help children, it is inflicting a grave injustice on them and their nondysphoric peers,” Cretella stressed.

“Today’s institutions that promote transition affirmation are pushing children to impersonate the opposite sex, sending many of them down the path of puberty blockers, sterilization, the removal of healthy body parts, and untold psychological damage,” she added, insisting that all this creates “institutionalized child abuse.”

Earlier in June a sepearate report written by three well-respected medical experts and scholars also questioned decisions that place children under “radical” and “experimental” puberty-blocking hormone therapy.

“Psychologists do not understand what causes gender dysphoria in children and adolescents, or how to distinguish reliably between children who will only temporarily express feelings of being the opposite sex from children whose gender dysphoria will be more persistent,” states the report, titled Growing Pains: Problems With Puberty Suppression in Treating Gender Dysphoria, published by quarterly journal The New Atlantis.

“Until much more is known about gender dysphoria, and until controlled clinical trials of puberty suppression are carried out, this intervention should be considered experimental,” it adds.

The experts further warned that regardless of good intentions by physicians and parents, “to expose young people to such treatments is to endanger them.”  Christian Post

Minnesota Schools Adopt Transgender Toolkit For Kindergartners

What is happening in Minnesota?

A “transgender toolkit” for public schools in Minnesota advises teachers to call children “scholars” instead of boys and girls.

The guidelines were approved Wednesday by the “School Safety Technical Assistance Council” and will be distributed to Kindergarten through 12th grade public schools and charter schools throughout the state. The toolkit attempts to “ensure a safe and supportive transition” for children becoming a different gender at school.

The toolkit allows for boys who identify as girls to use the girls’ bathroom, and tells teachers to ask kids what their “preferred pronouns” are.

The Minnesota Department of Education encourages parents to have “acceptance and support of their child’s gender identity” if they want their child to perform well at school.  FreeBeacon

The Minnesota Toolkit states that the 2016 guidelines were rescinded, then the Toolkit quotes the 2016 guidelines numerous times as if it is still in effect.

The directive under the Obama administration was overturned by President Trump in February. The Dept. of Education withdrew its false interpretation and expansion of Title IX to include gender identity.

“Transgender students should be afforded equal opportunities to play sports. A student should not be required to provide medical or other documentation that is not required of all students in order to participate, according to 2016 Title IX guidance.  Title IX requires that schools provide transgender students with the right to participate in such activities, including athletics, in a manner consistent with their gender identity.”  pg 9, Minnesota Toolkit

It teaches gender is based on feelings not biology.  False, misleading, and unscientific .

through these policies and this ideology, MDE is violating its own bullying policies by creating an extremely hostile environment for students and adults who reject—on a scientific basis and/or a moral basis—that gender ideology is dangerous to children. The MDE is opposing the will of the overwhelming majority of Minnesota parents and taxpayers by forcing this toolkit and this unscientific, radical view of sexuality on our schools. CPL is receiving increasing reports from parents, teachers, and students that, when they do not adopt and affirm gender fluid thinking, they are being harassed, bullied, called bigots and haters, and intimidated into conformity.  CPLAction

Poll Shows Nearly Half of Millennials Open To Government Removing Children From Homes That Won’t Support Transgender Transitioning

This is what fascism looks like today in America.

Gender dysphoria is a mental illness, it is not a life style choice.

On Monday, Whatsgoodly released the results of a poll regarding the views of millennials on a crucial issue of governmental intrusion: do young Americans believe that the government should “remove children from homes where the parents refuse to provide resources for gender transition?”

This issue has become a hot button of late thanks to a piece of legislation in Canada that gives the government the capacity to do just that.

he results are stunning. Fully 18% of the 1,402 respondents answered yes; another 27% said they were unsure. Among female respondents, a majority stated that children should either be removed from the home (21%), or they were unsure (33%). A whopping 60% of Clinton voters felt the same way; just 7% of those who voted for Trump said yes, and 15% said they were unsure. Among self-described liberals, 47% said they were either in favor of government removal (10%) or unsure about it (37%).

All in all, this means that nearly half of all millennials polled were open to the idea that the government should forcibly intervene in a family if parents refuse to cater to the transgender notions of their children. It should be noted that the question involved no age restrictions. DailyWire

Canadian Province’s New Law Lets Government Take Children Away If Parents Don’t Accept Their Gender Identity

Ontario has passed a law that would give the state power to remove children from families that oppose gender ideology.

If all of this sounds bizarre, that’s because it is. It’s also fascism. To remove a child from the home because the government disagrees with basic biology is beyond the pale of the reasonable.  DailyWire

Ontario’s Kathleen Wynne Liberals have passed what critics describe as “totalitarian” Bill 89 by a vote of 63 to 23 on the last day before Queen’s Park adjourns for the summer.

Pro-family advocates warn Bill 89 gives the state more power to seize children from families that oppose the LGBTQI and gender ideology agenda, and allows government agencies to effectively ban couples who disagree with that agenda from fostering or adopting children.

Bill 89, or the Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act, 2017, repeals and replaces the former Child and Family Services Act that governs child protection services, and adoption and foster care services.

It adds “gender identity” and “gender expression” as factors to be considered “in the best interests of the child.”

At the same time, it deletes the religious faith in which the parents are raising the child as a factor to be considered, and mandates child protection services consider only the child’s own “creed” or “religion” when assessing the best interests of the child. LifeSiteNews

Bill 89 allows parents to “direct the child or young person’s education and upbringing, in accordance with the child’s or young person’s creed, community identity and cultural identity.”  Children make the decisions.

The Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act of 2017, also know as Bill 89, was passed in Ontario by a vote of 63 to 23, The Christian Times reported.

The law, which replaces old laws governing child protection, foster care and adoption services, instructs all child services and judges, to take into consideration a child’s “race, ancestry, place of origin, color, ethnic origin, citizenship, family diversity, disability, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.”

Minister of Child and Family Services Michael Coteau, who introduced the bill, said “I would consider that a form of abuse, when a child identifies one way and a caregiver is saying no, you need to do this differently.”

“If it’s abuse, and if it’s within the definition, a child can be removed from that environment and placed into protection where the abuse stops.”

The old law used to allow parents to “direct the child’s education and religious upbringing.” The new bill, however, amends such rights of the parents.

It now emphasizes a child’s “identity and allows parents only to “direct the child or young person’s education and upbringing, in accordance with the child’s or young person’s creed, community identity and cultural identity.”  HeatSt

French Court Rejects A Third Gender Category

Gender is linked to biology.

France’s highest court last week rejected the notion of a “neutral” gender.

The ruling upheld a lower court’s decision denying a French citizen with a sex development disorder the right to use “neutral” as an official gender.

The Cour de Cassation, France’s supreme court, ruled that the distinction between male and female was “necessary to the social and legal organization, of which it is a cornerstone,” and that the recognition of a neutral gender would have “profound repercussions on rules of French law” and necessitate legislative changes, according to Agence France-Presse.  ChristianHeadlines

Teens Are Trying To Be Transgender Because It’s Trendy, Gender Expert Says

It is a mental illness.  It is child abuse.  It is trendy with liberals.  Most children who identify as transgender are faking it because they think it’s cool to be transgender.

One of Australia’s top experts on gender has raised concerns that children and teens are overdiagnosed as transgender.

Adolescents are “trying out being transgender” to stand out or gain attention from their peers, psychiatrist Stephen Stathis told the Courier Mail last week. “One said to me, ‘Dr. Steve … I want to be transgender, it’s the new black,” he recalled.

Stathis, who runs Brisbane’s Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital, said a gender dysphoria diagnosis will be given to only a tiny minority of the 180 minors who seek treatment at his clinic this year.

A gender dysphoria diagnosis is the first step for a transgender person to begin transitioning. Though children under 18 cannot get gender-reassignment surgery in Australia, they can receive hormonal therapy or treatment to suppress puberty.

In an interview last month, Stathis said that up to three-fourths of young patients who “present with gender variant interests and behaviors, or are gender diverse” will outgrow the feelings and don’t need treatment.

“You might get a six- or seven-year-old girl wanting to dress as a boy,” he said. “She may even say she wants to be a boy. When she hits puberty, she says, ‘No, I’m just a girl who likes to do boy things.” HeatSt

Dr. Stathis also says many girls want to be transgender as a result of sexual abuse. “The girls say, ‘If only I had been a male, I wouldn’t have been abused,’” Stathis explained.

Some are so convinced their life would be better if they were the opposite sex that they do something drastic or permanent. “I’ve seen genital mutilation, some who try to cut off their penis,’’ Stathis said. LifeSiteNews

Normalize the abnormal to children as young as possible -indoctrination into confusion in the UK.

Nurseries should teach toddlers about same-sex relationships and transgender lifestyles to reduce hate crime, say teachers.

The National Union of Teachers voted yesterday for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) matters to be taught to children aged two to four.

They want nursery teachers to deliver ‘age-appropriate content’ on the subject and to challenge homophobia and transphobia. However, critics say the subject would simply confuse toddlers. DailyMail

Former Montana State Univerity Student Sues School Over Suspension Related To His Anti-Transgender Views

The student tried to handle his disagreement with the trans-gender ideology in a mature way, while the graduate research assistant teaching the course Contemporary Issues in Human Sexuality  created a hostile environment because of a personal ideology.

According to the complaint, Doe was a student at MSU during the summer semester of 2014 when he enrolled in a class titled Contemporary Issues in Human Sexuality.

The class was led by Katherine Kujawa, a graduate research assistant.

Kujawa is named as a defendant along with the University and several other school officials.

At the start of the class, students were asked to sign a confidentiality agreement where they agreed not to discuss or share any information about other students outside of class.

One of the class lectures was about transgender issues.

A student in the class openly told the class that she was transgender, according to the complaint.

Doe objects to transgenderism, according to the complaint, and decided not to participate in the class conversation or the written reflection assignment at the end of class.

Doe instead asked Kujawa for an alternative assignment after class and he shared with Kujawa his discomfort with transgenderism.

According to the complaint, Doe also said he didn’t want to offend the transgender student by sharing his opinions…

According to the complaint, Kujawa pulled the transgender student aside after class and informed her that Doe did not approve of her lifestyle and that he could be a danger to her.

Kujawa recommended the student not sit near Doe, according to the complaint.

The transgender student told Kujawa she would file a complaint with the school and when Kujawa asked if she needed an escort, the student allegedly showed her a pocket knife and said she did not need assistance.

The Title IX complaint was filed with the school and an investigation was launched.

In May, Doe was called to the Dean’s office where he was served a complaint and told he could not be on campus while the investigation was in progress.

An MSU police officer then met with Doe and questioned him about his conversation with Kujawa and any intentions he might have.  Doe was then escorted off campus and told he would be charged with trespassing if he returned.

In an interview with the school’s Title IX investigator, Doe said he did not wish any harm to the transgender student and said his statements were misconstrued.

“Although he objected to transgenderism, he did not care how she chose to live her life,” according to the complaint.  Doe noted that he thought he had been talking to Kujawa in confidence and felt betrayed. KRTV

PA Boyertown School District To Teenage Boy: Undress In Front Of Girls And Make It ‘Natural’

Neither the school district or school informed parents that it permitted students of one sex to use the locker rooms and bathrooms of students of the opposite sex.

The male student who complained was offered “reasonable and appropriate alternatives“.  The boy’s parents did not accept the alternatives.

In an unbelievable invasion of privacy, a Pennsylvania school district told a teenage boy that if a teenage girl is in the locker room with him, he should “tolerate” undressing in front of her and make it as “natural” as possible.

The boy, represented by Alliance Defending Freedom and Independence Law Center (ILC), is filing suit against the Boyertown Area School District, its superintendent, and the principal and assistant principal of Boyertown Area High School, accusing them of shaming him, violating his personal privacy, and sexually harassing him.

At the end of October 2016, the lawsuit alleges, the boy began changing in the locker room for physical education class. He was standing in his underwear about to put on his gym clothes when he realized there was a member of the opposite sex changing with him in the locker room, only wearing shorts and a bra.

The boy and several classmates reported the incident to the assistant principal, Dr. E. Wayne Foley. The lawsuit asserts, “Dr. Foley indicated that the legality was up in the air but that students who mentally identify themselves with the opposite sex could choose the locker room and bathroom to use, and physical sex did not matter.”

When the boy asked if there was anything that could be done to protect him from the situation, Foley told him to “tolerate” it and make it as “natural” as he possibly could, according to the lawsuit. Foley allegedly reiterated that the boy should make it “natural” as the boy exited.  DailyWire

‘Free Speech Bus’ Vandalized, Defaced by New York City Trans Activists

All that is reasonable and good is now wrong.

A bus with social conservative slogans denouncing transgenderism was vandalized Thursday in New York City by trans activists.

The so-called “Free Speech Bus” is based off a similar one set up by activists in Madrid. After Spanish transgender activists put up posters reading, “There are girls with penises and boys with vulvas. It’s as simple as that,” a conservative Catholic group drove around a bus with the opposite message: “Boys have penises, girls have vulvas. Do not be fooled.”

The Spanish bus was eventually shut down and impounded when the Madrid City Council dug up a municipal code banning outdoor advertising. Liberals in Spain and the United States alike applauded the decision, including Chelsea Clinton.

But the National Organization for Marriage duplicated the campaign in the U.S.

“Boys are boys … and always will be. Girls are girls … and always will be,” the U.S. version reads. The group termed the bus the “Free Speech Bus,” while LGBT activists countered with the monicker “Hate Bus.”  FreeBeacon

British Medical Association – Expectant Mothers Are To Be Referred To As ‘Pregnant People’

The British Medical Association is under the delusion that men can get pregnant.

“Transgender people are unfortunately suffering from a significant mental illness that is deeply harmful, and it’s not a solution to pretend that transgender people are the sex that they think they are in their head.  Biology is biology; men can’t magically become women, and women can’t magically become men.”  – Ben Shapiro

First they came for our loos, insisting that it was prejudicial simply to label them ‘Men’ and ‘Women’. Then they came for our children, preaching a gospel of transgender rights in schools and playgrounds.

Now they have come for our wombs, for the precious privilege of calling ourselves mothers. And that, I’m afraid, is a game-changer. This madness must end.

From now on, expectant mothers — in other words pregnant women — are to be referred to as ‘pregnant people’ in order not to offend the sensibilities of members of the transgender community.

What is even more extraordinary is that this is not some half-baked agenda dreamed up by members of a student lobby group, but official new guidance issued by no less an august institution than the British Medical Association.

In a new advisory booklet entitled A Guide To Effective Communication: Inclusive Language In The Workplace, the BMA’s 160,000-odd members are informed that ‘a large majority of people that have been pregnant or have given birth identify as women’.

The idiocy of this statement alone is enough to make my hackles rise. But it gets worse: ‘However, there are some intersex men and trans men who may get pregnant.’

I’m sorry, come again? Yes, that’s right: the BMA is labouring under the delusion that men can become pregnant. (Intersex, by the way, refers to a person born with a reproductive or sexual anatomy that doesn’t fit the typical definitions of female or male.)

This from a supposedly scientific body established almost 200 years ago with the express intention of, among other things, guarding against quackery, is frankly unforgivable.

Because men, it’s a well understood fact, cannot get pregnant. Only women can get pregnant. That is because (and it pains me to have to state the obvious) only women have ovaries and wombs and, therefore, only women have the biological equipment to bear children.

It therefore follows that if a person is pregnant she must by definition be a woman. Granted, she may not wish to be a woman, she may not like being a woman or dress as a woman or style her hair as a woman or even resemble one. She may even be transitioning to become a man — but if she still possesses a functioning womb she is, nonetheless, in biological terms a woman.  DailyMail
