Gender Confusion Rising in Kids

A British newspaper reports that the number of children being treated for gender dysphoria by the National Health Service has increased by 1,000 percent in the last five years. According to the London Sun there were 97 British children being treated for gender dysphoria in 2010.  In 2015 there were 1,013.

At the NHS clinic which treats transgender patients under 18, the paper reports that "families are given counselling and, in some instances, [the patients are given] hormone blocking treatments . . . Last month it was revealed that a five-year-old boy returned to school in Nottinghamshire as a girl." 

LifeSiteNews spoke with Dr. Joseph Berger, a leading Canadian psychiatrist,

who told them such children should be getting psychotherapy.  "These children are unhappy for a variety of reasons.  They should be treated for their unhappiness.  Cutting off penises and breasts is not the treatment for unhappiness."  As for why there's been such an increase, Dr. Berger believes that sex reassignment therapy "has become very faddish.  It's the 'in' thing."

Dr. Paul McHugh, one of the early pioneers of sex reassignment surgery, wrote in the Wall Street Journal in 2014 that his hospital, Johns Hopkins Medical Center, stopped surgical therapy because it simply didn't work.  "'Sex change' is biologically impossible.  People who undergo sex-reassignment surgery do not change from men to women or vice versa . . . Claiming that this is a civil-rights matter and encouraging surgical intervention is in reality to collaborate with and promote a mental disorder."

Salvo has covered the issues surrounding transgenderism from several angles.  We recommend the following:
