Mastectomies Among Transgender Minors Have “Exploded”

“How many children will be sacrificed on the altar of the LGBTQ religion before parents wake up and stand against the madness that’s preached fervently in so many schools around our nation and through the media? It seems the answer is many thousands of children. You see, the push to teach gender ideology to young children and teens isn’t without consequences—it’s scarring (quite literally) thousands of children, leading them to do irreversible damage to their bodies. A recent article [New York Times, Sept. 26, 2022] shared that the rate of so-called ‘top surgeries’ (mastectomies or chest reconstruction on trans-identifying patients) have soared in recent years, with one medical center performing just 5 on minors in 2013, compared to 70 in 2019. A survey of 26 ‘leading pediatric gender clinics’ in America uncovered ‘long waiting lists’ of minors for these surgeries and a group of 11 clinics reported a total of 203 such surgeries; irreversible surgeries on teenagers based on their subjective feelings! A recent report claims this industry will be worth a whopping $5 billion by 2030 because, as one such clinic pointed out, these surgeries are a ‘big money-maker’ as they require lots of follow-up. These young people have been lied to by their schools, the media, and social media influencers who’ve told them all of their pain, discontentment with their bodies, mental illness, and trauma will be healed if they just become their ‘true selves’ and identify as trans or something on the LGBTQ spectrum. And I’m not exaggerating when I say they are being convinced by much of the media they consume to go down this path: a recent study found ‘86.7% of the parents of gender-dysphoric teenagers reported that the gender dysphoria coincided with an increase in internet/social media use, or the self-identification of a friend of that teen as transgender, or both.’ The gender madness sweeping through our Western cultures is nothing short of horrific child abuse. Children, who are highly susceptible to suggestion and peer influence, are having the seeds of gender confusion planted in preschool, watered through social media pages (such as TikTok), and then that seed blooms as their peers begin to ‘come out’ as trans.”
