From Sanchez Manning at Mail on Sunday:
The BBC has been accused of acting recklessly after targeting children as young as six with a programme about a schoolboy who takes sex-change drugs.
Parents are angry that the show, available on the CBBC website, features a transgender storyline inappropriate for their children.
And concerned campaigners said it could ‘sow the seeds of confusion’ in young minds. The programme, Just A Girl, depicts an 11-year-old’s struggle to get hormones that stunt puberty, making it easier to have sex-change surgery in the future. More.
Reality check: So what is it we don’t understand? There is no basis in science for claiming that a man can be “trapped” in a woman’s body or a woman in a man’s. But human psychology is very subtle and can make us believe many things.
Here’s a bet: The media and “helping professionals” who want in on this racket were probably not front and centre in covering the Rotherham teen prostitution scandal:
On Friday I appeared on Michael Graham’s radio show to discuss, among other things, the appalling revelations from Rotherham, a drab town in South Yorkshire in which over the course of a decade and a half some 1,400 girls (as young as 11) were “groomed”, drugged, raped, traded and, occasionally, doused in petrol and threatened with being set alight. All the while, the entire apparatus of the state, from the political class to the police to the “child protection” agencies, looked the other way – for fear of appearing “racist” or “Islamophobic”. The BBC describes the predators’ actions as “brazen”, which it certainly was. They would turn up at children’s homes, select the ones they wanted, and drive off with them:
The carer, who wished to remain anonymous, claimed staff were reluctant to intervene in some cases for fear of being classed as “racist”.
So the individuals who presided over this regime destroyed the lives of 1,400 people in their care, and have paid no price for it. Indeed, some have been promoted, and put in charge of even more children: Sonia Sharp, who was head of child services in Rotherham, is now in an equivalent position Down Under for the entire state of Victoria.

Vote for progressives and get way more of this for your tax dollar. You may even get to persecute the rest of us for having deplorable values.
Recently, I wrote a series on the “recovered memories” hysteria of the late Seventies through late Nineties, and compared it to the “tranny tots” claims (links below).
In both cases, the on-the-ground science evidence is derisory, but that hardly matters now.
