Parents erect 3rd billboard warning against trans medicalization of kids
A group of concerned parents of trans-identifying teenagers have erected another billboard drawing attention to the harms of the medicalization of gender after being censored earlier this month.
This third billboard is located near a children’s hospital in Los Angeles that is home to a large transgender youth clinic and a prominent doctor who is actively gender-transitioning children.
The father of a trans-identifying teenage girl who’s spearheading the effort said in an interview that he’s determined to never stop fighting for his children. Like a previous billboard that was put up near Kaiser West-LA earlier this month but taken down within 48 hours following “complaints from the community,” the message was the same.
The text reads: “Why do so many of our youth think they are transgender? Know the facts before making a life changing choice. Read this book.” The text is written alongside the cover of journalist Abigail Shrier’s book, Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters, which was released earlier this summer and scrutinizes the sudden, skyrocketing rates of teenage girls and young women self-identifying as the opposite sex and the medical practices that are irreparably harming their bodies.
The new billboard, which went up on the 21st of December and is scheduled to remain up for one month, is located close to Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, an intentional move because of what’s happening there. This particular billboard company was an independent outfit and has assured the parents that they will not censor their message.
“We placed it near Children’s Hospital because they are one of the leaders in this transgender medicine that is completely experimental…” told the father.
At a Heritage Foundation panel challenging the claims of transgender activists in the medical field, Dr. Michael Laidlaw, a California-based endocrinologist, showed a video clip of Olson-Kennedy asserting that minors possess the capacity to make life-altering decisions, including the choice to have their breasts amputated. Laidlaw and his colleagues filed FOIA requests and obtained additional details about Olson-Kennedy’s study at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. A 2017 progress report revealed that the minimum age for cross-sex hormones was lowered from 13 to 8.
“Imagine giving 8-year-old girls testosterone,” Laidlaw said during the Heritage panel. “They are in third or fourth grade. This is unbelievable. But this is going on.”
He continued: “The schools blindly shove it down their throat, the media is one-sided and will not talk about anything other than celebrated transgender ideology, and Hollywood celebrates such as Ellen Page and Eddie Izzard while refusing [to report on the] thousands of young kids, mainly teenage girls, who are being put on life-altering hormones and getting healthy body parts amputated only to have many of them start to change their minds.”
