I’ve been reading about transgendering kids on the net, and it’s pretty easy to work out where this is coming from. A couple of white male docs. One is in charge of the committee about gender identity stuff, for the DSM. He thinks that if your young son wants to play with dolls, you take away with dolls. And if your young daughter wants to play with trucks, you take away the trucks. That’s Kenneth Zucker. He’s a conservative jerk. The gay and transgender people hate him. Some of them want transgender stuff out of the DSM entirely. Others want it kept in so they can get treatment covered.
The other doc is Norman Spack. He’s the guy behind promoting sexually reassigning adolescents. He works for the Boston Children’s Hospital. He has admitted on NPR that sexually reassigning adolescents sterilizes them, because it goes like this: kids can’t handle their sense of what gender they perceive themselves to be, even when very young. So as they get older, and of course subjected to schoolyard bullying and mainstream media, they get more and more upset about this.
And there is no other cure for their now-suicidal tendancies, than to encourge them to go for the goal of first blocking puberty, so they can “think about it some more.” So they can think a bit more about how they can possibly avoid being murdered by our culture that will not allow non-conformism to gender stereotypes.
