I was researching for a talk I am giving on the money behind the movement to convince kids they can be born to the WRONG BODY and I wanted to include a few titles of books on transgenderism that are aimed at children Books that can be found in the Children’s Library section at The Iowa City Public Library.
I went to the catalog page on the library’s website and typed “transgender” into the appropriate box. There are 226 articles, books and videos about transgenderism. There are 43 books and videos directed solely at children placed on the shelves of the children’s section of the library.
I then typed in the word “detransition”, given that the consequences of medical transition are severe and irreversable, I thought the library might be present all the necessary information that a child might need in order to decide whether he or she has the wrong body and needs to become a permanent medical customer for drugs and surgery, having perfectly healthy body parts removed, being made sterile…unable to have children, etc. And the only book that exists in the library that says anything at all negative about this momentous new social contagion is When Harry Became Sally by Ryan T. Anderson.
When Harry became Sally : responding to the transgender moment / Ryan T. AndersonBOOK | Encounter Books | 2018 | First American editionOur transgender moment — What the activists say — Detransition — Sex — Gender dysphoria and transgender identities — Children — Gender and culture — Public policy — Notes — Index.Can a person truly be ‘trapped’ in the wrong body? Can modern medicine really ‘reassign’ sex? What should our law say on these issues? Anderson offers a balanced approach to the policy issues, a nuanced vision of human embodiment, and a sober and honest survey of the human costs of getting human nature wrong. In doing so, he examines the grim contrast between the media’s sunny depiction and the often sad realities of gender-identity struggles. He believes the most helpful therapies focus on helping people accept and even embrace the truth about their bodies and reality.
So I leave it to you to decide for yourselves, based on this evidence, whether public institutions are deliberately abetting rapacious medical corporations in harvesting the bodies of confused kids who are being programmed to believe it is possible to be born into the “wrong body”. I have tried to bring this problem to the attention of the library in the past but of course, my calling attention to the fact that children are being experimented on with chemicals that have not been tested for long term safety in children’s developing bodies and being sterilized and having healthy body parts removed means that I am an ignorant bigoted terf who hates gay people.
