Hate to say we told you so, but…

The American College of Pediatricians (ACPeds) just released a statement regarding transgender children. The Florida based group declared that, after extensive research, giving children gender affirming “care” has absolutely no benefits on the well-being of the child. 

Say it a little louder for the people in the back. 

The piece published on Wednesday indicated that the ACPeds reviewed over 60 studies and concluded the following: 

Social transition, puberty blockers, and cross-sex hormones have no demonstrable, long-term benefit on psychosocial well-being of adolescents with gender dysphoria.

The 60 studies all focused on the mental health of kids who struggle with gender dysphoria, and the ACPeds also released a factsheet to help properly provide the best for kids.  

The factsheet noted a lot about what we’ve been seeing in transgender youth cases - many experience child abuse and neglect, treatments often lead kids to be suicidal, there’s little to no mental health benefits to these “gender-affirming” treatments and that many individuals who transition as kids end up embracing their biological gender as they get older.

This point has been proven time and time again from those who detransitioned, many of whom fully regret the decisions they were enabled and encouraged to make as young kids that not only left them permanently damaged physically but worsened their mental health. Even a leftie outlet like The New York Times recently shed light on detransitioners stories and how harmful the transgender movement really is.

According to its website, “The American College of Pediatricians (ACPeds) is a national medical association of licensed physicians and healthcare professionals who specialize in the care of infants, children, and adolescents.” It was founded to be a voice of reason amongst the highly politicized treatment of children throughout the nation and seeks to help all children “reach their optimal physical and emotional health and well-being.”

Dr. Jane Anderson, Vice President of ACPeds and lead author of the piece, added a call to action for parents and medical professionals.

"We urge medical professionals and parents to affirm the truth about childhood gender dysphoria in the presence of harmful thoughts and address the underlying mental illness, adverse events, and family dysfunction,” she said. 

Her colleague, Dr. Michael Artigues, president of ACPeds echoed her statement.

The studies reviewed in this paper demonstrate what many who practice medicine intuitively understand that young patients experiencing gender dysphoria deserve help in accepting and loving themselves as they are, not interventions that destroy their healthy bodies and put them on track of  medicalization for life.”

This group genuinely seeks the well-being of kids. Let’s hope the left, who seems to think they do the same, adopts this line of thinking and halts the mass destruction of young people’s healthy and able bodies.
