The American College of Pediatricians (ACP) has come out with their strongest statement yet regarding gender reassignment treatments for children. Gender reassignment therapy harms children.
The American College of Pediatricians urges healthcare professionals, educators, and legislators to reject all policies that condition children to accept as normal a life of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex. Facts – not ideology – determine reality. Gender-ideology-harms-children.
Couple Gender disorder with a parent suffering from Munchausen by Proxy and the perfect storm for child abuse occurs. Rather than being condemned, the parent will be hailed by opportunists of every stripe; so-called transsexuals, psychiatrists and psychologists in search of their next Mercedez payment, and other fellow travelers. Child beaters never had it so good.
Factitious disorder is a serious mental disorder in which someone deceives others by appearing sick, by purposely getting sick or by self-injury. Factitious disorder also can happen when family members or caregivers falsely present others, such as children, as being ill, injured or impaired. Factitious disorder symptoms can range from mild (slight exaggeration of symptoms) to severe (previously called Munchausen syndrome). The person may make up symptoms or even tamper with medical tests to convince others that treatment, such as high-risk surgery, is needed. Factitious-disorder/home (Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy)
The science is clear gender reassignment treatment for minors is child abuse. The parental allegation of Gender Dysmorphia is entirely consistent with Factitious Disorder or Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy. It is time for a District Attorney to step forward and prosecute.
