College of Pediatricians Calls Transgender Ideology ‘Child Abuse’

The American College of Pediatricians warns educators and legislators that “a life of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex” is dangerous for children.

In a strongly worded statement issued today, the professional association of pediatricians says “a person’s belief that he or she is something they are not is, at best, a sign of confused thinking.”  It describes such thinking as problem that exists in the mind and not the body and “it should be treated as such.”

The college of pediatricians is joining a heated debate that increasingly pits concerned parents against school teachers, administrators, legislators, and transsexual advocates who are pushing the trans agenda in grade-schools, city governments, state governments, and the federal government.

A wave of “non-discrimination” bills are appearing around the country that require public women’s restrooms to accommodate men who think they are women and even those who consider themselves “gender non-binary,” that is, men who appear to be men but who say there are neither male or female.

The American College of Pediatricians will release a full statement this summer.  The statement released today explains, “human sexuality is an objective biological binary trait: ‘XY’ and ‘XX’ are genetic markers of health — not genetic markers of a disorder.”

The statement goes on:

The exceedingly rare disorders of sex development (DSDs), including but not limited to testicular feminization and congenital adrenal hyperplasia, are all medically identifiable deviations from the sexual binary norm, and are rightly recognized as disorders of human design.  Individuals with DSDs do not constitute a third sex.

The statement points out that such gender confusion should be treated as a psychological disorder called “gender dysphoria” and is “a recognized mental disorder in the most recent edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association (DSM-V).”

The group is most concerned about the regimen of drugs that are given to children to block puberty.  “Children who use puberty blockers to impersonate the opposite sex will require cross-sex hormones in late adolescence.  Cross-sex hormones (testosterone and estrogen) are associated with dangerous health risks including but not limited to high blood pressure, blood clots, stroke and cancer.”

Rates of suicide among adults who use cross-sex hormones and undergo sex change reassignment surgery are “twenty times greater” than the rest of the population even in such trans-friendly places as Sweden.

The doctors argue that “Conditioning children into believing a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse.”

Child Abuse Unimportant To NY Big 3

Child Abuse unimportant to 3 NY Law Makers

New York State’s big three politicians don’t have time to discuss reforms to
Child Abuse law

See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil — and for good measure — confront no evil.

In other words, Albany’s three men in a room still don’t have time to talk about the rights of child sex abuse victims.

One refused to meet with a sex abuse survivor.  One had no public schedule and his office didn’t return calls.  A third was so annoyed that a reporter dared to ask him about the issue, he made it sound like he was under attack.

“No, stop,” whined Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie (D-Bronx), waving off a Daily News reporter on Wednesday.

The News wanted to know if the Assembly was going to take action on efforts to reform the statute of limitations on child sex abuse. Currently, child sex abuse survivors in New York are unable to bring civil or criminal charges against their abusers after their 23rd birthday.

The legislative session ends on June 16.  Between now and then, lawmakers are generally scheduled to work only three days a week. They’re off Thursday and Friday of this week.

See you on Monday.

Sex abuse survivor and advocate for reform, Kathryn Robb, had no luck with Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan after days of trying to arrange a face-to-face meeting with the Long Island Republican.

After several emails and phone calls with his office, Robb received a rejection through one of Flanagan’s staffers.

“Why can’t he take 10 minutes to meet with us?” Robb asked.

Her frustration was in large part due to her and other advocates’ failed attempt last week to score facetime with Flanagan by showing up at his office.  After a chat with an aide, Robb said she was told she needed to schedule a meeting with Flanagan who wields tremendous influence over what legislation is brought to the Senate floor for a vote.

On Wednesday she got official word that meeting couldn’t happen.

“Senator Flanagan is unable to meet,” staffer Lisa Bruno wrote to Robb, 56.

Robb, who said she and her sister endured sexual abuse at the hands of their brother in the late 1960s and 1970s, asked if there were any other days when Flanagan would be available.  She was instead referred to his senior staff.

“Unfriendly, chilly, very uncooperative — that would be an understatement — to just listen to people talk!” Robb said, describing her interactions with Flanagan’s office.  “This is really significant legislation!”

Flanagan spokesman Scott Reif challenged Robb’s characterization.

“That is absolutely not true — the assertion that anyone was unfriendly, that anyone rejected a meeting,” Reif said

“The meeting was set up for next week,” he added, referring to the sit-down with senior staff, but not Flanagan.

Robb, undaunted, said she would be joined by six other advocates on Monday for a return visit to Albany politicians’ offices.

“We’re really committed.  We’re calling it a civil rights movement for children.  That’s what it is,” Robb said.

A clearly annoyed Heastie dismissed The News’ coverage of the issue as he ducked into his office.

“You guys have already made your opinion known,” he added referring to recent Daily News front pages.

“I have no comment.”

On Tuesday, The News published on its front page the photographs and office numbers of Heastie, Flanagan and Gov. Cuomo, urging New Yorkers to call them and demand action on the statute of limitations.

Heastie has previously told The News he needs to discuss legislation with Assembly Democrats.

Cuomo, whose office has said “those who are guilty of sexual abuse should be held accountable and due process must be maintained,” was not in Albany Wednesday.

His office did not respond to an inquiry from The News.

There are several bills under consideration that would change the state’s statute of limitations on sex abuse claims.

One bill, proposed by Assemblywoman Margaret Markey (D-Queens), would end the statute of limitations for civil lawsuits involving cases of child sexual abuse and allow a one-year window for victims whose cases are currently time-barred to sue.

Another bill would extend the time in which victims can sue from 23 to 28.  A third would eliminate both the civil and criminal statutes of limitations.

There is no time limit in New York State for prosecuting first-degree rape.

Thank You Governor Abbott

TEXAS GOVERNOR ADDRESSES CPS
HORRORS AND ABUSES

Texas Governor Greg Abbott has appointed a former chief of the Texas Rangers as new Commissioner of the disgraced Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS).  DFPS is the agency responsible for protecting abused and neglected children in the state.  Breitbart Texas has reported about the abuses, problems, and overreach in the agency, particularly among CPS caseworkers. DFPS is also referred to as Child Protective Services or “CPS.”  There have been horrific abuses of children who are in the state’s foster care system.

The Texas Governor said that “The status quo at CPS is unacceptable.  Our children are too important to suffer through the challenges they’ve faced.  I’ve insisted on overhauling a broken system.” Abbott added, “I applaud the leadership changes that will provide a new direction and focus that puts protecting children first.”

The Texas governor appointed Henry “Hank” Whitman as the next commissioner of the DFPS.  Kristene Blackstone will serve as Assistant Commissioner.  Whitman is a former chief of the Texas Rangers and Blackstone has 17 years of experience with CPS. Blackstone began her career with the department as a caseworker. She is currently working as the Deputy Director for Field Operations for the Child Support Division of the Texas Office of the Attorney General.

In early March, Breitbart Texas reported that the top official for the DFPS announced that he is stepping-down effective May 31, 2016. Judge John Specia Jr. became DFPS commissioner on December 1, 2012.  He announced on March 6 that he is retiring after thirty years of public service.

In April 2014, the advisory council at the department approved new agency rules after children died while in CPS foster care, as reported by Breitbart Texas.  Two-year-old Alexandria Hill and eleven month old Orien Hamilton both died of blunt-force head injuries sustained by the hands of foster and kinship caregivers approved by DFPS. Children are placed in foster and kinship homes that have been approved by child-placing agencies (CPAs) licensed by the TDFPS. The department licenses the foster child-placing agencies that recruit, investigate, and train potential foster and kinship parents. They also monitor the placements once these individuals become caregivers.  The new rules which took effect in September of 2014 only applied to new foster homes.

Alex Hill died in July 2013 while in a Milam County foster home run by the Department’s #3 foster care contractor, Texas Mentor.  Her foster caregiver, Sherill Small, was charged with capital murder after she showed law enforcement officers how she smashed Alex’s head against the floor.  Rockdale Police Chief Thomas Harris stated that Small became frustrated after Alex got into food and water before the Smalls woke-up one morning.  Small “punished” Alex by making her stand in a dark room for four hours.  The Arlington office of Texas Mentor was placed on probation after 114 infractions were found at 56 foster homes during the two years prior to Alex’s death.

TDPRS objected to the release of the home study report on the Smalls but then Attorney General Greg Abbott ordered it released. The couple had been extremely candid when they were first interviewed.  Small told the agency about her troubled past as an abused foster child in Missouri. She had spent almost all of her childhood in foster care, as reported by the Dallas Morning News. Small’s husband, Clemon Small, said he was a recovering crack cocaine addict who made money from karaoke DJ jobs.  Mrs. Small had been a bus driver but had a work-related injury.

Orien Hamilton died in October 2013 when she was in an Austin foster home that had been approved by Lutheran Services of the South, the Department’s #1 CPA.  The foster mother’s ex-husband, Jacob Salas, pinned Orien’s head to the floor with his knee.  Orien already had broken ribs which had partially healed.  Orien had a fractured skull, bleeding of the brain and detached retinas.  Salas was a prison guard who had a history of violence and abuse.  The foster mother had been licensed in October and the child died less than two weeks later.  Orien’s biological father claimed that he had warned Texas officials that Orien was in danger, as reported by the Morning News.

According to TDFPS statistics, there was an alarming increase in the number of deaths of foster children in the agency’s 2013 fiscal year. Eight foster children died in fiscal year 2013; two children died in foster care during fiscal year 2012. Another child died in foster care after the Department’s fiscal year 2014 began in September 2013.
In March 2015, Breitbart Texas reported that Texas Governor Greg Abbott directed the DFPS to implement comprehensive reforms. The reforms were aimed at protecting children in the agency’s care. Nine children died under DFPS’ watch during 2014.

In addition to these horrors, the agency’s critics say that more caseworkers should be investigated for their constitutional overreaches with parents, custodians, and guardians.  As reported by Breitbart Texas, a CPS worker was found guilty of official oppression in September 2015. Rebekah Ross Thonginh, a CPS worker, is one of three individuals who were charged in connection with a CPS investigation of a case involving a special needs teenager who was murdered in 2012.  Thonginh, Natalie Ausbie Reynolds, and Laura Ard were arrested in September of 2013 and were charged with official oppression and tampering with evidence.

In 2014, a Texas judge ordered the removal of a YouTube video which went viral after it was highlighted in an article by Breitbart Texas. It had hundreds of thousands of views and shares.  As reported by Breitbart Texas, Judge Keith Dean ordered the removal of the video which was produced by a 13-year-old boy who had been in the foster care system.  It exposed the sexual and physical abuse that he and his brother and family say they endured.  The video, obtained from someone outside of the family, also discusses the 377-day nightmare suffered by him and his six siblings after they were ripped from their family and placed in four different foster care facilities out of their home county.  The mother told Breitbart Texas at the time “they are trying to rake this abuse under the rug.” The children have been returned to their family.

In December 2014, a class action lawsuit was filed against CPS.  As reported by Breitbart Texas, the lawsuit was filed by a New York advocacy group called Children’s Rights.  About 12,000 children were included in the class action suit.  These children were in long-term care in Texas.  The advocacy group successfully sought and received an order from a federal district judge.

Judge Janis Graham Jack ordered the State of Texas to enact reforms.  In so doing, the judge wrote an opinion that said that the long-term foster care system was improperly run.  She also called it a place “where rape, abuse, psychotropic medication and instability are the norm,” as reported by the Dallas Morning News in December 2015.  The judge noted that the DFPS and Judge Specia had “the best intentions” but the system is underfunded.  She called the long-term foster care system in the state “broken.”

Remake Of Groundhog Day:
CPS – The Stepford Years
2002 to 2016

There was another installment of  Leiliana Wright’s death in the Sunday edition of the Dallas Morning News.

I can’t do it, but you can if you want, then you can come back here and see what I found that somehow I missed before.  I will give you a big hint, the hint is right above me in Heading 2, meanwhile I couldn’t find the exact DMN article, but this link right below me will take you to one that is close enough.

Believe it or not, the press gets out of character and throws some CPS people under the bus, but quickly saves them before they get all they deserve.  The really cool part is the bus actually does some decent damage though….

4-year-old Leiliana Wright needed Dallas CPS. It failed at every turn, records show

It’s the same drivel every time one of The Untouchables, or a big handful of The Untouchables get busted:  Overworked, Underpaid, Too Much Paperwork, Underfunded, etc…

Child Abuse And Neglect Laws Aren’t Being Enforced

This is my post from NOT IN MY WORLD!!!! on January 28, 2015.

I missed a very important point, and in doing so I most probably have missed helping countless Children.

How could every state, as far as I can tell, fail to comply with meeting at the very least, minimum Federal Child Welfare Standards since 2001 or 2002????

Internet, Mobile Phone, and Texting safety Tips for Parents and Children

Apple and Android continue to leave customer vulnerable

Apple says their latest (tiny????) hole in security, that left Iphone users’ pictures out for all to see and copy, is patched up.

Android has had a serious design flaw in their software since inception, and while not as bad, we as yet have no answer to how many updates  to the OS will be needed to close this hole.

Children need parental supervision from the day they are born to the day they turn 18-years-of-age.  All it takes is one minute alone with the wrong person to seriously alter their once-bright future.

Be the parent your Child deserves.

Internet, Mobile Phones, and Texting Safety Tips for Kids

  • Do not post personal information online (name, age, birth date, address, telephone number, or school name).  This information can be used by others to find out where you and your family live.

  • Do save messages that upset you and show them to your parents.
  • Do share your password with your parents.
  • Do visit http://www.netsmartz.org/ to learn more about Internet safety.

Internet, Mobile Phones, and Texting Safety Tips for Parents

  • Do teach your child not to post identifying information on the Internet.
  • Do set a limit for how much time your child can spend online.

  • Do talk to your children about purchasing “in app” products.
  • Do talk to your child about using any location services on their device.
  • Do periodically review your child’s computer, emails and messages.  You should have all of your children’s passwords.
  • Do spend time with your child online.  Have them show you their favorite online destinations.  Get to know your child’s online friends as you would their real-life friends.  Learn to navigate the web.
  • Do know who they text and email.  Most providers have online ways to identify frequent contacts so you can see if someone new appears as a contact.
  • Do monitor your child’s access to the Internet and texting.
  • Do talk to your child about the danger of Internet predators.
  • Do watch for unexplained changes in your child’s behavior.
