Leftists have been slowly but surely altering the tide of public opinion into believing that it's harmful to treat a baby as "male" or "female" because he or she may have been born with the "wrong gender." It's expected that all of left-leaning academia would naturally follow suit.
But that's not the case with the American College of Pediatricians. According to CBN News, the organization said that teaching children it's beneficial to identify as a different gender than their biological sex is tantamount to child abuse.
In a call to legislators and educators, the group said, "The norm for human design is to be conceived either male or female. People who identify as 'feeling like the opposite sex' or 'somewhere in between' do not comprise a third sex. They remain biological men or biological women. A person's belief that he or she is something they are not is, at best, a sign of confused thinking. When an otherwise healthy biological boy believes he is a girl, or an otherwise healthy biological girl believes she is a boy, an objective psychological problem exists that lies in the mind not the body, and it should be treated as such."
They added, "Conditioning children into believing a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse."
