Back-to-School Tips For Navigating Transgender Activism
Dr. Miriam Grossman Has Practical Advice for K-12 Parents
By Peter A. McCullough, MD, MPH
I commonly have young parents in my office express concerns about their kids returning to school this year not only to face academic challenges, but also to navigate this new world of hypersexuality an indoctrination pushed on them by transgender activists who are in the roles of teacher, counselor, and school administrator.
This is a critical interview for parents with normal children who want no part of this new dimension of life. I sat down with world renown child psychiatrist Dr. Miriam Grossman, author of Lost in Trans Nation: A Child Psychiatrist's Guide Out of the Madness. Going to school, learning, and participating in the normal development of a child is what most parents desire. This book will help parents and children achieve this goal.
Gender affirmation is a good term and applies to the continued reinforcement of reality at a very young age at home; a XX chromosome, female gender in the womb and at birth is indeed a girl and an XY chromosome, male gender in the womb (seen by ultrasound in virtually every case), is a baby boy at birth. Grossman makes it clear that a child cannot be born into the wrong body. That is a fabrication. A child cannot “transition” to the opposite gender, that is a distorted fantasy.
Dr. Grossman suggests that every parent download and complete the educational directive form and file with their school. This puts the teacher and administration on notice that the child/parent will not tolerate pornography or attempts to sexualize children.
Parents should take an active stance and request the “reading list” and curriculum for each class and look critically for sexual topics. Finally, they should review with their children what they went over in school each day—going hour by hour to be sure a salacious topic or activity does not pop up.
Grossman says parents should pay attention to their kids friends. Are they changing pronouns or clothes at school? What about use of the bathroom? Anything out of the “normal” may suggest indoctrination or intentional promotion of transgender activities by the school.
What should be done with children who really have psychological problems surrounding sexuality or puberty? Grossman says that qualified psychological/psychiatric care is warranted since the majority of these children have deep rooted problems including anxiety/depression, autism spectrum disorder, and complex family dynamics that require professional attention.
