There’s no such thing as a trans kid.

Ignoring that ideological bias of the authors, at least they are advocating for more caution and assessment of these children.
Transition is something people do, not something they are, and it’s for adults.
Imagine doing no psychological assessment before blocking puberty in a child or giving them opposite-sex hormones.
Johanna Olson-Kennedy, a pediatrician at Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles, is skeptical of therapy requirements and gives hormones to children as young as 12.

She’s a child abuser.
There’s always something else going on: autism, trauma, eating disorder/body image concerns, self-esteem, depression, or anxiety.

Social media has an enormous influence.

Yet we medicalize immediately, harming children for life? This is sick.
Involve parents? Yes, please.

Perhaps the World Professional Association for Transgender Health should take a more active approach, and start telling school districts to stop hiding a child’s new trans identity from their own parents!
Criminally sloppy and lazy ‘medical care.’

Every gender clinic should place everything on hold until they’ve done a thorough assessment of their practices vs evidence-based best practices.

We KNOW that 80 - 90% of children outgrow traditional gender dysphoria.
Many [criminal] paediatric endocrinologists openly discuss how they use adult informed-consent models of care with their teen patients, which almost always means no mental health involvement and sometimes no parent input.

Children Cannot Consent to Puberty Blockers and Hormones!
A.J. Eckert of @AnchorHealthCT says that children are best equipped to make decisions about their own body.

Oh okay, who needs parents?

He says being trans is not a pathology. Gender dysphoria is in the DSM-5, but radicals think ‘trans’ is a set identity from birth.
There have never been any clinical studies into this treatment for healthy adolescents.

Not one. Our children are guinea pigs.

Are we to believe that for the first time in human history a pharmaceutical drug is needed to help a child be their authentic self?
It’s not a conservative agenda.

Half my supporters are leftists. Half are conservative. The other half are feminists. (Yes, I know that’s three halves.)

Biology belongs to no political party.
It’s impossible for practitioners in this field to have objectivity when they come at it from an ideological belief that some children are ‘born in the wrong body.’

Treat gender dysphoria with watchful waiting and therapy. Leave physical transition to adults. Let kids be kids.

I should practice what I preach, so after 12 hours of travel today, I drove straight from the airport to my MP’s office, uninvited.

Parliament started up today so the MPs are in Ottawa, but I left her wonderful assistant in a state of shock after talking for more than hour.
As luck would have it, I know her assistant.

We used to live in the same neighbourhood. Our girls are the same age and were in the same class together. They went to dance together. We’ve trick-or-treated together.

She only knows the pre-billboard me so that was kind of funny.
Anyway, I refuse to just let this incoming Bill C-6 pass without a fight and I have plans.

Messaging is everything in politics and Conservatives need to learn what is going on and how to communicate about it.

It’s time for a thread of my greatest (worst) hits. Some people need to be exposed.

First up, the University of Victoria boys — October 15, 2020.

Arrogant little bully abuses a 55-year-old woman.
BC Minister of Education, Rob Fleming, refuses to discuss the education curriculum with me, a concerned parent.

When asked why he’s refusing to meet, he simply says “Why would I?”

(He’s been transferred out of this job now, FYI.)

This chap really showed me up with his beautiful sign: “This guy opinion is stupid ➡️”

I felt bad for him, so I helped out and added the apostrophe and the S.

I’m at the University of Houston, having conversations about why Gender Ideology Does Not Belong in Schools!
Count yourself lucky that you weren’t around that cougar when I mentioned that kids are having their puberty blocked.

The growl made even my hair stand up on end.
This place is pretty nice. I love Texas so much. ❤️

Transgender doctors warn about gender-affirmative care for youth.…
One of the "sloppy" things she says she's witnessed is providers "believing that the gender-affirmative approach is simply taking what the children say and running with it."

Indeed. Let’s stop blindly accepting a child’s self diagnosis as being the other sex, please. Image
Puberty blockers “have not been licensed for use in children with gender dysphoria, so such use is off-label.” Image

I was chatting with Kevin Whitt (a man who has detransitioned) outside the Denton Public Library in Texas, when this woman rolled up to tell me how kids know they are trans the moment they are born!

Part 1 of 3
Super compassionate mom (with her child in the passenger seat) thinks that news of detransitioners is a pile of garbage.

Whoopsies. It just so happens there is a detransitioner standing right behind me.

Your turn, Kevin. Enlighten this poor misguided soul. @whittproject

For someone who feels so morally superior, you’d think she might listen to a man with 20 years experience as a transsexual, but no.

She knows best! Except she has no idea that children are being sterilized, and runs away as soon as she’s confronted with that fact.

I’m hanging out with Jeff Younger, whose son James is being forced to transition to a girl by Texas courts and his ex-wife.

We’re joined by 5 amazing ladies including some from Partners for Ethical Care, and about 30,000 tailgating college students from SMU in Dallas.
My arm’s getting tired from all the high fives.
Be brave, everyone. Our support is overwhelming.

It is okay to tell the truth!
