Children as young as THREE convinced they are born in the wrong body

The number of children referred to gender identity clinics has doubled in the last year.

Children as young as three were among the 1,419 under-16s who received support during 2015/16.

That’s an increase from the 697 children the previous year who believe they were born in the wrong body.

I wonder who is doing the convincing…

    I’m not sure if you posted the article by the shrink whose study indicated that 80% of the victims of this delusion grew out of it. Of course if their crazy parents go along with this insanity and have them plied with drugs which stunt the normal maturing process then all bets are off.

    Does one, for the briefest of seconds, really believe a three year old can tell whether or not they are in the correct body. Good Christ, at that age They are still learning how to go to the bathroom. Some of these freaks are going to damn far and this crap needs to be nipped in the bud, or, perhaps the crotch.

    • It is abuse.

        There will be hell to pay when the “victims” finally wake up and demand to know why nobody in the medical community shouted STOP! at the political classes.

          I think you are right. Look at the adult kids who were born as a result of IV/sperm donation. They are starting to speak up about the negative repercussions of the selfish choices made by their parents.

  • Justin St.Denis

    I wonder if – were the question approached in the same manner as the gender issue – there are literally thousands of children out there who believe they are really tigers and should have tiger bodies to roar with.

    When I was three, I wanted to be Zorro. Or a pirate. Or maybe even a pterodactyl! I was a somewhat shiftless, uncommitted child. 😉

      Not me! i wanted to be a fireman and a fire man only. There was something about those huge floppy boots and getting to slide down the firepole whenever you wanted, later in life I came to realize that peelers have a way with brass poles that is far superior even if the floppy boots are usually left out of the equation.

        Your point has been received, and we cannot disagree with you. 😉

    This is child abuse.

      Sadly it is also the basis for Wynne’s educational reforms.

    if the child is under puberty then it is probably munchausen by proxy, i would bet by a progressive mother and a neutered male father

      That’s EXACTLY the case for the Toronto parents raising the “gender neutral” child Storm. Mom didn’t want boys, Dad is neutered/submissive and doesn’t advocate for what is best for his kids. You can bet “uber feminist” mom is subtly encouraging the older kids to wear girls’ clothes, play with girls’ toys, and select “fairy themed” birthday parties.

      Parents that encourage “gender neutral” or “transitioning” kids are engaging in psychological abuse. They position themselves as cutting edge and enlightened to rationalize the emotional damage they are inflicting on their children.

  • Mark van der Wal

      Yes, that is the naked truth exposed.
