President of American College of Pediatricians Speaks Out Against National Geographic for Exploiting Children to Advance Sick Agenda

By now you have probably seen this ham-fisted attempt at social engineering by National Geographic:


The January cover features a 9-year-old pawn named Avery, whose parents have seen fit to present him to the world as a trophy transsexual.

Finally, someone is more concerned with the welfare of children and society in general than they are afraid of being called out as thought criminals by depraved liberal elitists:

Michelle Cretella, MD, president of the American College of Pediatricians, told LifeSiteNews that National Geographic is “promoting a political agenda over science and the wellbeing of innocent children” by featuring a young transgender child.

“‘Affirming’ so called transgender children means sterilizing them as young as 11years old,” said Dr. Cretella. “Puberty blockers plus cross-sex hormones causes permanent sterility. And biological girls who ‘transition’ to male by taking testosterone may have a double mastectomy at age 16. The life time use of cross-sex hormones also puts these children at risk for stroke, heart disease, diabetes, cancers and more.” …

Cretella believes it is both unethical and harmful for parents to make such decisions regarding their children’s gender because they will most likely grow out of their gender dysphoria. “When a child under the age of 12 thinks they are the opposite sex and is allowed to naturally pass through puberty, 75%-95% of the time that child will accept his or her biological sex by the late teen years.” …

Cretella argues that public support of “transgenderism” in children is tantamount to “child abuse.” “When academic, medical and other public institutions propagate the lifetime use of toxic hormones and the surgical removal of healthy body parts as healthcare for children they are engaged in institutionalized child abuse,” she said.

When the future looks back at this sick stage in our history, it will gasp in horror at what liberals did to children, both born and unborn, in the name of their degenerate ideology.

    a long-term mental disorder of a type involving a breakdown in the relation between thought, emotion, and behavior, leading to faulty perception, inappropriate actions and feelings, withdrawal from reality and personal relationships into fantasy and delusion, and a sense of mental fragmentation.

    Emphasis added.

    Gender identity disorder (GID), recently renamed gender dysphoria (GD), is a rare condition characterized by an incongruity between gender identity and biological sex. Clinical evidence suggests that schizophrenia occurs in patients with GID at rates higher than in the general population and that patients with GID may have schizophrenia-like personality traits. Conversely, patients with schizophrenia may experience alterations in gender identity and gender role perception.

    “Gender Dysphoria” is a psychological disorder that needs treated with drugs and therapy NOT placed on a mantel as something to aspire to….. or you are just one sick puppy with weird fetishes. Either way you have mental issues.

    The National Pedophile Pictorial celebrates parental failure and perversity.

  3. Take The Red Pill says:

    “Transgender” — you mean that the parents changed his chromosomes from XY to XX? Because unless they otherwise managed to do that, “HE” is NOT a “SHE”.

  4. richard says:

    Pushing the limits of “geography” with every issue.

  5. Major Tom says:

    Gender is fluid, race is a social construct, but global warming is a settled science. No. Genetics, that which determines race and gender, is a settled science, global warming is a theory. And the right is anti-science?

    “The life time use of cross-sex hormones also puts these children at risk for stroke, heart disease, diabetes, cancers and more.” …” more = suicide.

    41% of trans or gender non-conforming people surveyed have attempted suicide, ten times the rate of the rest of the population. Apparently that is what these people want for their children. Getting a whiff of evil over here.

  7. Mr. Freemarket says:

    Keep this in mind, caring parents…..
    Transgenders, as well as gay people in general (with or without a sex change operation) have a very, very high rate of suicide.

    When you feed the mental illness of your child, know that you are adding to the probability that they will end their lives prematurely.

    Before you share this article, be aware that this group is not who you think they are — the American College of Pediatricians is not affiliated with the American Academy of Pediatricians. The ACP has a membership of about 500 doctors, while the AAP has over 60,000 members.

  9. bitterlyclinging says:

    National Geographic, leaving no standards of decency obstructing the way of the pervert agenda.
    Like A&E Networks converting its History II Channel to the Vice Network with such offerings as Weediquette, while A&E’s flagship History Channel which long ago ceased offering fare related to actual history now airs fare like its “Pawn Stars” and “American Pickers”

  10. JeffersonSpinningInGrave says:

    The only thing that matters here is whether the numbers cited are accurate or not. One would still need to check up on that, no matter who wrote the article. Facts matter. The messenger doesn’t.

  11. grayjohn says:

    A nine year old who will likely commit suicide before puberty.

  12. BPatMann says:

    The National Geographic cover will be used as defense evidence in about 10 years at this kid’s trial for murdering his parents in their sleep.

    FROM those leftist scientists with their Liberal Arts and Women Studies degrees!!

  15. Jester says:

    I can just imagine the Left’s response to Dr. Cretella’s dissertation. Oh no – wait – I don’t have to imagine. I know what it is; the same tired old, worn-out response they ALWAYS have to EVERYTHING:



  16. Take The Red Pill says:

    Remember the Leftist mantra: “The facts don’t matter; only the agenda matters.”

  17. Take The Red Pill says:

    Been saying that a LONG time, bro. Unless their chromosomes are changed, all the rest (clothing, surgery, attitude, etc.) doesn’t matter a damn, because it’s just ‘window dressing’.

    “a trophy transsexual”
    just the latest fad version of Munchhausen Syndrome – child abuse at its worst

    EXACTLY! TRUTH IS NOT what you would like it to be, putting a MASK on it does NOT make it so.

    It won’t be too long before the Left floods the American College of Pediatricians with affirmative action lgbt and sundry effeminate intellectual lightweight graduates in order to affirm transgenderism, much like happened with the affirmative action lgbt and sundry effeminate intellectual lightweight members of the American Psychological Ass. with homosexuality.

  22. 5kidsnadog says:

    I would agree, except that this group has an agenda and it is not clear whether academics or agenda are driving their statements. Recent statements from the ACP have been questionable and often at odds with the more well known American Academy of Pediatrics. As an example, there is a statement about the HPV vaccine causing ovarian failure that has come from the ACP, which the AAP vigorously opposes. I’m just saying that before you share the story, you look into who you are quoting – it can be embarrassing to quote a less than reputable group.

  23. Pork_Soda says:

    Thanks and so noted.

  24. 762x51 says:

    True for all Progressives, D or R flavor.

  25. 762x51 says:

    An excellent observation, characterizing this trend as Munchhausen Syndrome is perfectly on point. If an adult wants to make this choice for themselves and destroy their lives they are free to do so, it’s no different than those who decide to destroy themselves with alcohol or drugs. This is no different than forcing a child to become a drug addict.
