Adult Activists Are Grooming Our Vulnerable Children

Sep 6, 2018

What would you say if there was a 236 per cent increase in children who claimed they are actually trees, and wanted to get help to somehow physically transform themselves into trees? If you are at all sane, you would say these kids are messed up – big time. But you would also say that adult activists must be behind this massive upsurge in such madness.

Well this is just what has been happening – except for the tree bit. But it is really no different at all. Telling impressionable young children that there is no such thing as biological sex, and that kids can choose any of a zillion sexual preferences is insanity, and it is also child abuse.

As I told an audience last night on this topic, it is one thing if adults want to go down this path, but they need to leave their hands off our children. Young children are still working on tying their shoelaces, and do NOT need poisonous ideology rammed down their throats about all things sexual.

But that is exactly what is now happening – and it is happening everywhere: in the media, in pop culture, in politics, in the courts, and in education. Innocent children are being told they are no longer boys and girls, and can now be anything they want. So they might as well pretend they are trees. It is all the same lunacy.

So now what we have is the institutional grooming of children. Now it is institutional child abuse. Now we actually have teachers who should be teaching children how to read and write, but instead are on a trans witch-hunt, seeking vulnerable kids to push the dangerous and high risk agenda on them. Consider this utterly shocking news report:

Teachers are now being taught to spot potential transgender students in the classroom — with experts claiming the move has contributed to a 236 per cent surge in the number of kids wanting to change sex in the past three years. The training has been conducted by gender identity experts in public and private primary and secondary schools under the guise of professional standards development.

It involves teachers learning to identify key phrases such as “I feel different”, “I’m androgynous” and “I’m born with two spirits” indicating transgender leanings in students as young as five. Exclusive figures obtained by The Daily Telegraph show already this year hospitals have referred 74 kids aged 6-16 to gender dysphoria clinics geared to help children and adolescents transition.

In 2015, the number was 22 and in 2013 there were just two. The figures have sparked a heated debate among health experts, with the huge increase denounced as a “tragic” and “dangerous” fad fuelled by gender support experts in schools and celebrity trans cases. Gender counsellor Dr Elizabeth Riley, who has advised 40 private, public and Catholic schools in the past three years, said it was important to educate teachers given 1 per cent of students were transgender.

Oh good grief – just get lost will you! Up until a few short years ago this was a problem for virtually no-one, and now all of a sudden we need trans police on the lookout to push innocent kids into this ugly adult agenda. As a result we now have a 236 per cent surge in “trans” children. Puh-leeese!

This is nothing other than adults grooming children. This is about despicable adults putting their radical ideological ideas into the heads of vulnerable kids. This is about recruiting children for a lifetime of sexual, mental, emotional and psychological confusion and turmoil.

Thankfully not everyone is thrilled about this radical agenda. A bit of sanity was heard on this from the new Prime Minister. Perhaps in a move emulating Trump, Scott Morrison sent out a tweet saying “We do not need ‘gender whisperers’ in our schools. Let kids be kids.”

Yes Prime Minister! But leave it to the nutter Greens and other leftist loons to condemn Morrison for “hate speech” and the like. We expect the lefties to carry on like this. But other experts are very much aware of all the massive harm this radical ideology is causing so many, especially our children.

In this regard I have quoted Michelle Cretella before – the president of the American College of Pediatricians. Last year she penned a very important piece warning about all this. The headline says it all: “I’m a Pediatrician. How Transgender Ideology Has Infiltrated My Field and Produced Large-Scale Child Abuse.”

Yes it certainly is child abuse. She says this:

The transgender movement has gained legs in the medical community and in our culture by offering a deeply flawed narrative. The scientific research and facts tell a different story. Here are some of those basic facts.

Twin studies prove no one is born “trapped in the body of the wrong sex.” Some brain studies have suggested that some are born with a transgendered brain. But these studies are seriously flawed and prove no such thing. Virtually everything about human beings is influenced by our DNA, but very few traits are hardwired from birth. All human behavior is a composite of varying degrees for nature and nurture.

Researchers routinely conduct twin studies to discern which factors (biological or nonbiological) contribute more to the expression of a particular trait. The best designed twin studies are those with the greatest number of subjects. Identical twins contain 100 percent of the same DNA from conception and are exposed to the same prenatal hormones. So if genes and/or prenatal hormones contributed significantly to transgenderism, we should expect both twins to identify as transgender close to 100 percent of the time. Skin color, for example, is determined by genes alone. Therefore, identical twins have the same skin color 100 percent of the time.

But in the largest study of twin transgender adults, published by Dr. Milton Diamond in 2013, only 28 percent of the identical twins both identified as transgender. Seventy-two percent of the time, they differed. (Diamond’s study reported 20 percent identifying as transgender, but his actual data demonstrate a 28 percent figure, as I note here in footnote 19.) That 28 percent of identical twins both identified as transgender suggests a minimal biological predisposition, which means transgenderism will not manifest itself without outside nonbiological factors also impacting the individual during his lifetime.

The fact that the identical twins differed 72 percent of the time is highly significant because it means that at least 72 percent of what contributes to transgenderism in one twin consists of nonshared experiences after birth—that is, factors not rooted in biology. Studies like this one prove that the belief in “innate gender identity”—the idea that “feminized” or “masculinized” brains can be trapped in the wrong body from before birth—is a myth that has no basis in science.

She goes on to present a wealth of data and scientific evidence, and then concludes as follows:

Bottom Line: Transition-Affirming Protocol Is Child Abuse. The crux of the matter is that while the transition-affirming movement purports to help children, it is inflicting a grave injustice on them and their nondysphoric peers. These professionals are using the myth that people are born transgender to justify engaging in massive, uncontrolled, and unconsented experimentation on children who have a psychological condition that would otherwise resolve after puberty in the vast majority of cases.

Today’s institutions that promote transition affirmation are pushing children to impersonate the opposite sex, sending many of them down the path of puberty blockers, sterilization, the removal of healthy body parts, and untold psychological damage.

These harms constitute nothing less than institutionalized child abuse. Sound ethics demand an immediate end to the use of pubertal suppression, cross-sex hormones, and sex reassignment surgeries in children and adolescents, as well as an end to promoting gender ideology via school curricula and legislative policies. It is time for our nation’s leaders and the silent majority of health professionals to learn exactly what is happening to our children, and unite to take action.

Last night at the meeting I was involved in, one person asked why all this was being pushed by teachers and other professionals. I replied by noting the reality of cultural Marxism and its stranglehold on most of the professions in the West.

I also pointed out that most people in these areas who do speak out and resist the radical agendas being pushed stand very real chances of losing their jobs. Indeed, in my slideshow presentation I demonstrated numerous instances of this very thing happening overseas.

And it is also taking place here in Australia. I once was involved in a debate on the trans agenda and asked three professionals who between them had a hundred years of experience in helping young people in their roles as counsellors, psychiatrists, paediatricians and so on.

All three of them fully agreed with me and my position on this, but all three of them declined to be involved, and they all said to speak out publicly would mean they would lose their jobs. So Cretella is absolutely right in this regard. And she is absolutely right to refer to all of this as institutionalised child abuse.

It is happening from the top down. Whereas just a few years ago no children were talking or thinking like this, now, thanks to interference and agitation from adult teachers and other activists, we see a 236 per cent increase in kids wanting to change their sex!

Children are NOT coming up with all this on their own. It is being pushed into their delicate and innocent minds and psyches by adult activists and militants who are deliberately targeting our children. Last night, after I and two other experts gave our presentations, various concerned parents got up to say how utterly angered and outraged they were at all this happening.

That is exactly the right response. But we challenged them to take these fully justified concerns and translate them into action. We all need to get involved and to speak up. It is high time we all say enough is enough. Shame on these institutional child abusers. HANDS OFF OUR KIDS!

8 Responses to Adult Activists Are Grooming Our Vulnerable Children

  • If a child has a health problem it is NOT the school’s responsibilty to deal with it. The only exception is in an emergency situation. This includes gender confusion. Parents have the right and responsibilty to look after their children’s health and medical treatment. The schools should not interfere in a child’s healthcare. They are interfering and meddling in something that is the parent’s duty. It is a bit like “lunch cutting”. Parents are supposed to be the legal guardian of the child. Schools can give children medication according to parental instructions. If a teacher is looking for gender-confused children they are trying to be a parent. If a child is gender-confused they can discuss it with their parents. The parents can discuss the situation with the school. Why do we need centralised education to deal with anything and everything? Can’t people deal with a situation themselves? Who is the parent? Is the school a parent? If the school becomes the parent does that mean that the biological parents are nannies or babysitters? Parents should stand up to the schools. We need a debate on the proper roles of parents and schools. Parents are supposed to bring up the children and not the schools. The schools are trying to make parents into nannies/babysitters. The education departments are going beyond their responsibilities and authority. Hello Big Brother!

  • Bill, it really gets me when the Daily Telegraph article and others like it in the MSM, refer to ‘experts,’ which the general public probably takes as being people qualified in pediatrics and/or a related scientific discipline, whereas they are really activists schooled in gender theory – and totally opposed to real experts like Cretella, Van Meter, and their like. A perfect example of this was when Daniel Andrews said he took his advice from ‘experts’ not bigots. I guess this failure to discern between real science and ideology, between real studies and boutique studies is something I would want to address were their some avenue and some listening ears.

  • Sometime in the future, when we realise this to be the utter con that it is, will we be having some Prime Minister standing up in parliament, with fake tears saying on behalf of the nation, “to that generation of children who we forced into becoming something they were not, we say sorry”.

  • This all makes me so angry I want to punch someone and so tragically sad that I want to ball my eyes out. I have been told that I am a ‘hater’ and that I have hurt people by standing up against Safe Schools and the agenda they are pushing. I am literally shaking with anger at the perpetrators and with fear for our precious victim children!

  • All so very tragic and true, Bill. I believe the “Kids Help Line” (more like LGBTQI recruitment line) is also encouraging these unfortunate kids that they are probably transgender. What is wrong with our teachers to allow this to happen?
    At least this despicable crime against our kids is now being exposed to some degree on Skynews, but it’s only available in rural areas or on Foxtel. Dr Kevin Donnelly was on the Credlin show last night, trying to warn people about what’s going on.
    (I believe Daniel Andrews had Skynews removed from railway stations, and also had the register of schools signed up for the Safe Schools Coalition removed from the internet. Censorship is alive and well.)

  • We need to ensure that the Greens do not gain the balance of power in the Senate at the next election. Cory Bernardi and his Conservatives will be running candidates for the Senate in some seats. We need to ensure each of these candidates are elected in order to start blocking radical and harmful policies being passed by the Leftist politicians. Cory Bernardi’s website is worth a visit.

  • Time and time again I have noticed that it is easy to point the finger at the Education Department, the Greens or any political party, LGBTQI groups etc. but I’ve also noticed that those who take a stand have very little support if any at the moment they draw a line in the sand. Many of those that I am aware of that have done so, have had mental breakdowns themselves because the pressure has become too much and sadly more and more are becoming reclusive.
    I personally have been very close to a young person who decided to commence the ‘transgender’ process. What shocked me the most was the response of adults (many on the board involved) that had a view that they could do nothing because their hands were tied. Their attitude was that they just needed to show God’s love by allowing the young person full privileges to express themselves how they wanted to. I am to this day, still wondering how this shows God’s love? Perhaps we are too weak in what we believe in being made in God’s image, to know how to show the love of Christ to someone who is unsure of who they are. While it is normal for children to have questions about their identity, I feel that we are now too reactive because we have slacked off on being proactive and that blame cannot be placed on anyone else because it starts with me, as a parent and mentor to my kids and their friends.

  • Teachers are being turned into “Tranny Whisperers”. Any intelligent health care personnel should be outraged with the Xenoestrogen chemicals Feminizing the Males. These hormone disrupting estrogen mimicking chemicals are changing the Males. Also its starting at the beginning of their life. Next is the cultural insanity of embracing this change as a healthy thing.
