NYTimes Writer Urges Puberty-Blocking Drugs for 'Transgender' Children
The New York Times writer and researcher at Yale, Jack Turban published an article encouraging doctors to perpetuate the transgender movement by giving children puberty-blocking drugs.
Turban’s controversial opinion article titled “Hannah Is a Girl. Doctors Finally Treat Her Like One,” gives an example of how a doctor is helping “Hannah,” who was born as a 14-year-old boy, turn into the sex he identifies as.
“Hannah” has been given a puberty-blocking implant in his bicep as part of his transition.
“Taking her red cheeks as a sign to change the subject, we switch back to medicine. I feel around her bicep, where a hard rod just beneath her skin releases a drug that turns off the brain cells that would otherwise kick off puberty. The implant has been in place for two years, preventing the process that would have deepened her voice and given her an Adam’s apple. She has been happy with the blocker, but is ready to move on,” writes Turban for the New York Times.
Turban applauds Hannah’s doctor for providing this treatment and makes a call for all American doctors to prescribe these hormones to children who identify as transgender. Truban calls the implant that “Hannah” has in his arm the proper “protocol for thousands of American Children.”
He also points out how people have been conditioned to accept the concept of transgenderism now, versus 10 years ago.
“Back then, a doctor may have based her treatment on a 2002 manual for the treatment of “gender identity disorder in young boys.” The manual recommends a range of behavioral interventions to force-fit a child into traditional gender roles. They include keeping the child away from typically feminine activities like gymnastics, scheduling more play dates with boys and encouraging “letting go” of the boy by the mother. The hope was that early treatment would “diminish the risk of a continuation of gender identity disorder into adulthood” — in other words, make children stop being transgender,” writes Turban for the New York Times.
But then he explains how times of changed.
“Fortunately, most doctors no longer think this way. In 2012, Dr. Diane Ehrensaft from the University of California, San Francisco, proposed “true gender self child therapy,” in which even the youngest children are allowed to explore their gender identity, with all outcomes (transgender or not) being treated as equally desirable,” writes Turban for the New York Times.
Turban ends the article by saying it’s “insane” to not supply children with puberty-blocking drugs.
“Doctors once argued that it would be insane to block a child’s puberty and change her body. Seeing Hannah as a happy and thriving teenager, I now see it would be insane not to,” writes Turban for the New York Times.
The backlash from Turban’s outlandish statements has been massive. The article has been referred to as evil for promoting child abuse. The doctors and parents supporting the gender dysphoria pointed out in this New York Times opinion piece are also being condemned.
“The parents are freaks of nature. Leave the children alone. They aren’t an experiment. You monsters!” tweeted MSMCali.
“NO. That is child abuse. Those children need therapists, not pills or surgeons,” tweeted Mr. Shepard.
Truban’s opinion couldn’t be further from the American College of Pediatrics’ recommendations.
The association warns that “a life of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex” is dangerous.
“A person’s belief that he or she is something they are not is, at best, a sign of confused thinking,” said the professional association of pediatricians in a statement in January. “Children who use puberty blockers to impersonate the opposite sex will require cross-sex hormones in late adolescence. Cross-sex hormones (testosterone and estrogen) are associated with dangerous health risks including but not limited to high blood pressure, blood clots, stroke and cancer.”
Author’s note: We should be appalled by Truban’s statements. The doctors supplying these puberty-blocking drugs are committing misconduct. The parents allowing their children to destroy healthy reproductive organs are committing a crime. Not to mention, most who decide to go through with a sex-change, regret it. As the trans-agenda movement gains popularity, the more people get conditioned to believe it’s fine. The truth is this is child abuse and more people need to stand up against it.
Editor’s note: This is the most horrible example of child abuse I can think of, to screw with a child’s mind and convince them they are ‘transgender’ before they reach puberty.
