Ah, The Times. No longer known as the paper of choice for Uncle Bulgaria, but as the place of outdated attitudes.

Shouldn’t their masthead include a qualifier?

Perhaps the Medieval Times?

So why are there 2 diametrically opposing guideline from “official” groups of pediatricians? Because the American College of Pediatricians is not what it sounds like. It is a right wing, antivaxx, anti LGBT, anti abortion astroturf group that exists solely to allow bigots to cite “official medical guidelines from a nationally recognized group of pediatricians,” which is absolute bullshit. Be aware because they try very hard to make themselves look official.

Good thing she knows her audience will never actually fact check her. And, as noted upthread, she can (and may have, I can’t really tell) cited the American College of Pediatricians policy statement that “allowing” transgender people to exist constitutes child abuse. Assholes gotta, well, you know.

She’s a piece of work. It’s been a cottage industry for her for little me 20 years.

It might be worse if you seeking care for your trans child. There is one practice in our area that will “deal with” trans kids. I have a couple of patients who were unceremoniously fired from other practices because “we don’t do that here.” Apparently the Hippocratic Oath only applies to the cis-gendered. :rage:

Total wingnuts.

A deductible charity. Your tax dollars at work.

Yup, women can be transphobic asshats too. Wish it were not so. It is. Sigh.

Which is a shame, because I’ve always appreciated her Twitter presence. Who else responds with System of a Down lyrics?

Well, that’s just great. Only “following a transphobe on Twitter” so far, but…
