Transgenderism teaches that gender is a function of a person’s mind, not the person’s body. A corollary is that children who believe they were born into the wrong body should be given puberty blockers, hormones, and “gender affirming” surgery. That is to say, the children are sterilized and sexually mutilated.
This is monstrous on the face of it. “Gender dysphoria”–confusion about one’s own gender– is not uncommon among children, but it usually goes away in time. But the transgender movement has turned this condition into a mandate for sex-change medical procedures. Schools are encouraged to identify children in need of this kind of “treatment,” sometimes is defiance of parents. And those who oppose doing this to children are demonized.
