Transgender epidemic in the UK: One child changes gender every day
Louise Bowers, a senior deed poll officer, told The Sun: “We used to issue a couple every couple of months – but now it’s seven to ten a week.” According to Bowers, most of the kids are in their teens, aged either 14 or 15, however some are as young as ten.
The number of children, aged between 3 and 18, being referred to gender identity clinics went from 314 in 2011 to 2,016 in 2016.
Last year UK’s Equalities Minister Penny Mordaunt ordered an urgent investigation after it was revealed there had been a 4,415 per cent increase in the number of girls being referred for ‘transitioning’ treatment.
However, the abnormal surge in gender confusion in young children is a non-issue according to UK Prime Minister Theresa May, who said she’s “determined to eradicate homophobic and transphobic bullying.”
“We have set out plans to reform the Gender Recognition Act and streamline and de-medicalise the process for changing gender, because being trans is not an illness and it shouldn’t be treated as such”, she added.
Chris McGovern, former adviser to the Department of Education told The Telegraph, it has become an industry
“People are making a career out of encouraging children to question gender at an age when they need to be left to be children. When teachers raise these issues children can become confused or unhappy and traumatised by it.
