Parents horrified by transgender ‘social contagion’
The Christian Institute
The Wall Street Journal has revealed how parents are being undermined by ‘experts’ keen to affirm their children as transgender.It interviewed 17 families in the US whose adolescent daughters are experiencing so-called Rapid Onset Gender Dysphoria (ROGD).
Parents said they were “terrified” that opposing treatments recommended by therapists and others would result in their child refusing to speak to them.
The journalist Abigail Shrier, who spoke to the families, describes ROGD as a “social contagion” that “overwhelmingly afflicts girls”.
“Therapists and psychiatrists undermine parental authority with immediate affirmation of teens’ self-diagnoses. Campus counsellors happily refer students to clinics that dispense hormones on the first visit.”
She also noted that Planned Parenthood readily gives testosterone to young women without any psychological evaluation.
Shrier went on to question the hypocrisy of health professionals dealing with patients experiencing ROGD, compared to other issues such as self-harm or bulimia.
“Like fashionable and tragic misdiagnoses of the past, this one comes with irreversible physical trauma.”
Late last year in the UK, a mother was told that her daughter could be taken into care because she refused to endorse a sex change suggested by an NHS therapist.
The anonymous mum was accused of ‘conversion therapy’ and deemed a risk to her daughter.
