An LGBT Pediatrician is now coming that children can begin sex changes at the age of 10.
As The Daily Wire reports:
Rep. Dan Frankel (D-PA) recently interviewed a self-described “LGBTQIA+ advocate” and pediatrician at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, who said children can begin to medically transition genders as early as 10 years old, and minor females can have their breasts removed.
To clear up the so-called misinformation surrounding the medical culture war involving transgender youth, Dr. Gerald Montano, who also works as the assistant professor of pediatrics at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and adolescent medicine physician at Children’s Hospital in Pittsburgh, explained to Frankel what “gender-affirming care” looks like for children at five and 10 years old.
Montano, who also runs a gender and sexuality program at the hospital, said rather than providing medical intervention for a five year old, doctors refer the child to a therapist who explores their so-called gender identity “to make them feel comfortable with how they feel about themselves.”
“For a 10 year old, that really depends on where they are in puberty because for some people — especially those who are assigned female at birth — they might start having signs of puberty,” Montano said. “And then there is a discussion on whether or not puberty blockers may be warranted for that individual because they can become really distressed if they’re starting to develop secondary sex characteristics that really distresses them.”
Last month the FDA issued a warning indicating that puberty blockers could cause a host of harmful side effects in the children who take them.
