Media Using Children For Profit: Gender Change, Not Sex Change Kids

Download PDF

Every time I see a story about “USA: 8-year-old child sex change“,  “8-year-old boy has ‘sex change’, or Boy, 8, has ’sex change’, that is Unbelievable!,  it sickens me. Not because of the children, but because of the media. These children are transgender, not transsexual. They are simply being allowed to self  identify, without any surgery or hormones. Trans-children won’t need hormones blockers until the onset of puberty (which happens in a range from 10-18 years old), and generally don’t have sexual reassignment surgery until after they are 18.

But facts be damned, the media churns out these screaming headlines that imply that these kids will be having genital altering surgery. This is child exploitation at its worst.
