‘Over the weekend the Herald Sun ran with a story headline, “Three year olds identifying as gender diverse”.
Most three-year-olds couldn’t even pronounce the words “gender diverse” let alone understand what they mean.
Most three-year-olds would also identify as unicorns, fairies, puppy dogs or firemen.
That doesn’t mean we indulge such fantasies by labelling them reality.
We encourage children to play, explore and experiment. It is how they learn.
They also learn by understanding when playtime is over and teaching them how to deal with real life circumstances. To enable them to grow up to be healthy adults we have to teach them resilience, perseverance, delayed gratification, resourcefulness, and responsibility.
Interfering with a child’s natural development and curiosity will not bode well for society. Prescribing medications to make them drug dependant for life – having to rely on daily meds to keep up the appearance of appropriating the opposite sex – is cruel and dangerous.
There is little-to-no long term data to show just how damaging it could be. In fact, all evidence so far indicates up to 80 per cent of gender confused children will outgrow their confusion by the time they have gone through puberty if they are not interfered with.
Yet gender clinics, cheered on by extremists, seem all too happy to run down this pathway of medical transitioning.
What will be the cost to this innocent generation of children?
How many more tragic stories of de-transitioners will we have to hear before our politicians and doctors say enough is enough?’
