    I remember when I found out that I would have menstrual periods. I learned it first in sex ed and then my mother confirmed it for me when I went home. I think I was 11 years old.

    I told her I wouldn't be participating in that. She laughed and said, "You'll be the first woman in history that will be able to avoid that. " It was in the late 60's.

    I was what they called back then a "tomboy." I loved sports and riding horses. I wanted to be a horse trainer and ride in the rodeo. I didn't like dolls or dresses, much to the chagrin of my mother. If I had been given a choice back then, I would have made the decision some girls make nowadays and transition to being a boy.

    Thank God that wasn't an option or I never would have enjoyed my life as a woman, a wife, and a mom.

    Then again, I didn't have the option shoved in my face every day via social media, counselors, and even teachers in the classroom. There were no tik tok videos championing the wonders of being transgender. My parents weren't warned that if they didn't let me be a boy I'd kill myself. Back then, pharmaceutical companies had other concerns like finding cures for cancer and preventing disease. They didn't push hormone blockers on adolescent girls.

    I also wasn't subjected to the screaming diatribes of transgender activists calling everyone who doesn't follow their doctrine "bigots" or "transphobes." I wasn't constantly being told that being trans was "cool" and "science." It wasn't a popular fad.

    Yet every day in this country, we are told over and over that being transgender was just a part of life and we should accept the physical and pharmaceutical abuse of our children at the hands of doctors. It seems to be part of the norm of the current times.

    Now, a study of 2700 children from The University of Groningen in the Netherlands has shown that discontent with one's own gender peaks at 11% during adolescence and then dips to 4% around the age of 26. It seems wanting to change gender is a phase.

    The researchers concluded, “Gender non-contentedness, while being relatively common during early adolescence, in general decreases with age and appears to be associated with a poorer self-concept and mental health throughout development.”

    Kids who don't like their biological gender change their minds as they grow older, become more mature, and adjust. They are also more able to withstand the influences pushed upon them if they are mentally sound. Of course, in the United States, there is a concerted effort to push gender re-assignment surgery and puberty blockers as if this will solve all the problems a child may be having. All the while, those who have already made the drastic, life altering decision seek affirmation by changing the lives of "recruits" to their lifestyle. Misery loves company.

    And doctors, who should be about protecting patients from harmful procedures and drugs, have either given up their physician's oath for money or have been threatened with legal action if they tell their patients the truth about the lifelong damage of hormone blockers and the risk of gender reassignment surgery.

    Thank goodness we have a handful of de-transitioners who are willing to tell the truth. Here is the story from the New York Post of one, Chloe. Her tale is terribly sad.

    The University of Groningen study found that girls were being hardest hit by this gender dysphoria.

    The report notes, “Individuals with an increasing gender non-contentedness more often were female and both an increasing and decreasing trajectory were associated with a lower global self-worth, more behavioral and emotional problems, and a non-heterosexual sexual orientation.”

    In her book Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters, Abigail Shrier wrote about this trend. The book details various stories of girls and their parents who have suffered this horrific order.

    In her follow up book Bad Therapy, Shrier writes about the mental health profession that has promoted this tragedy in the U.S. as well as promoted a generation of young adults who are mentally student by therapy gone wrong.

    In the United States, we claim to love our children and want what's best for them. Maybe we should look to this study to tell us what we know, that we are hurting our children and need to stop.

    The American Board of Pediatrics knew and espoused all of this in 2016. In 2017, the threw it all out and jumped on the bandwagon.
