White House To Host ‘Roundtable On Affirming Transgender Kids’

The White House will host a “Roundtable on Affirming Transgender Kids” Friday as part of its observance of “Transgender Day of Visibility,” according to a fact sheet.

The roundtable is part of a push from the administration to support transgenderism, including childhood medical transitions, in the wake of numerous red states restricting the procedures. The discussion will focus on the experiences of children who identify as transgender and their parents in states that have restricted child sex changes, according to the White House.

“Over half of transgender youth say they have seriously considered suicide in the last year because of the discrimination and rejection they face. In the face of these challenges, research shows that, when transgender youth are affirmed and supported, they thrive,” the fact sheet wrote, citing no evidence for either claim.

The suicidality rates of transgender individuals are vastly exaggerated, according to experts in the field, some of whom believe that overemphasis on the suicide narrative can become a self-fulfilling prophecy that encourages young people with gender identity issues to contemplate suicide. Additionally, studies suggesting that cross-sex medical procedures improve mental health are riddled with bias, confounding variables and methodological errors, according to multiple Daily Caller News Foundation reviews.

The White House also issued what it called a “landmark report” on ways to support LGBT youth and issued new guidance for “gender identity inclusion” for public servants.

The White House did not respond to the DCNF’s request for comment.

  1. Shameful, but predictable for this old man, who hardly knows right from wrong, but he knows everything on the right is wrong! He has no idea what a travesty is taking place in schools and medical clinics across the country. Allowing, or even encouraging young people to take steps toward gender transition is the ultimate in cruel and inhumane treatment. These children know not what they do….but Joe knows! Send the ambivalent boys to the surgeon and have his penis removed and so forth!! Absolutely hideous. Now we have the psycho-crazies advocating for gender transformations, because their patients exhibit some ill-defined ambiivalence about their genders. Wow, an we even have parents giving their consent. Maybe these kids need help, but, for God’s sake, why do they deserve this mistreatment? Somebody needs to end this craze before it destroys us!
