Position statement by the American College of Pediatricians: “Gender Ideology Harms Children"

American College of Pediatricians: Transgender Agenda Hurts Children

by Selwyn Duke

Educators and legislators should “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.” The preceding is not the opinion of a talk-show host or pundit, but the opening sentence of a position statementput out by the American College of Pediatricians, on March 21. Entitled “Gender Ideology Harms Children,” it will be “followed by a peer-reviewed statement on the subject that’s expected to be released by summer,” reports The American College of Pediatricians (ACPeds) is a socially-conservative association of pediatricians and other healthcare professionals founded in 2002, primarily in opposition to the American Academy of Pediatrics and its current policies such as support for adoption by same-sex couples.

“Gender ideology” has taken hold in recent years. Its proponents claim your “gender” can be whatever youfeel it is; in fact, the ever-growing list of “genders” now includes literally scores of options, ranging from the somewhat stale “Androgynous” to the bizarre and esoteric “Cis Man” and “Neutrois.” Note that “gender” is not synonymous with “sex,” as many suppose. While “sex” is a biological fact, “gender” — which in the past was used almost exclusively in reference to grammatical gender of words until it was co-opted by gender ideologists — refers to a person’s perception of what he is. And perception is not reality.
