Statement Against Encouraging Transgenderism

The American College of Pediatricians issued a statement in 2016 stating that not accepting your biological sex is a disorder that should not be encouraged in children because of the harm it can do. Feelings do not change the truth regarding who a person is, nor is a life of artifical chemicals and unnecessary surgeries to impersonate another sex healthy for any person.

"98% of gender confused boys and 88% of gender confused girls eventually accept their biological sex after naturally passing through puberty."

"Rates of suicide are twenty times greater among adults who use cross-sex hormones and undergo sex reassignment surgery ..."
