Endorsing gender discordance as normal via public education and legal policies will confuse children and parents, leading more children to present to “gender clinics” where they will be given puberty-blocking drugs.

This is to say nothing of Bruce “Call Me Caitlyn” Jenner, the former Olympic athlete turned transgender icon. The American College of Pediatricians seeks to reverse this trend, and has data to back up their objections to it. “Facts — not ideology — determine reality,” the statement declares….
