    TRANS-SCRIBE: Fox News Doctor Suggests Torturing Trans Children

    Fox News medical 'expert' Dr. Keith Ablow appeared on Fox and Friends today to talk about transgender children, going so far as suggesting extremely abusive treatments for trans kids that borders on torture.

    When talking about the anti-trans bathroom bills and the petition to boycott Target thousands of people have made following their policy of allowing transgender people to use the bathrooms of the gender that they identify with Ablow suggested treating transgender children with the hormones of the gender they were assigned at birth.

    He also went on to suggest that transgender people only exist because of people being too afraid of political correctness to say otherwise, as well as comparing being transgender to claiming to be 65 in order to receive Medicare.

    'Here's the bottom line.' He said. 'The reason that the bathroom bill is centre stage in the presidential campaign and now in a national boycott that's up to about 500,000 people is because it represents more than bathrooms. We're not just talking about who is going to use which restroom. We're talking about whether closely held opinion of an individual will be allowed to overcome scientific data and history.

    'Right, so if you believe that you are of one gender, but your DNA and your physical appearance and your physical anatomy are evidence of another gender, and there's that conflict, then if we allow people culturally to dictate terms in our culture, then we are also by extension may be in a position where we allow people to say that they are 65 when they're 45 and get Medicare, allow people to get tattooed head-to-foot and say I'm a black person.

    'Now would that be offencive to black people, if that person got affirmative action preferences at school? I think it might. Why? Because there's history. There's culture, there's reality. This is the leading edge. Some would argue, I might, of unravelling our culture and perhaps our ability to plan for the future as a species.'

    When the presenters asked him how he thought society had reached this point he replied; 'We got to this place because we care about people. Okay, I understand that. We're also too politically correct. But look, there's not a lot of scientific evidence that it's better to approach transgender youth with the opposite hormone because we inject them with massive doses of testosterone if they're female to say look, we'll make you more comfortable with your chosen gender.

    'You know, we don't even explore, should it be more estrogen? Should we go with nature and say maybe we'll make you more female, more comfortable? There aren't these explorations. We don't treat with psychiatric medicines by and large to say maybe this is a bit of a fixed or false belief. Not different than if you thought you were a black person when you are a Caucasian. The science isn't even there. So if we have a draft, God forbid, are we really prepared for 18-year-olds and 20-year-olds to assert that they are really more like 12-year-olds? They feel it. They're immature. Their whole families have said look, much too immature to be drafted. That's where we're headed. Do we want to head there?'

    Ablow's assertion that no other exploration to treatments for trans children have been explored other than puberty blockers and hormone replacement is ridiculous to the point of being a blatant lie. The idea he suggested that the best way to treat transgender children is to give them more oestrogen to trans males and more testosterone to trans females is so akin to conversion therapy that it borders on torturous.

    Trans people suffer because their bodies get flooded with the wrong hormones, because they go through the wrong puberty and they change in ways that cause them pain and discomfort. Giving transgender children, or trans people of any age, more of the hormones that are causing them this pain is only going to intensify this.

    Ablow's suggestions closely mirror practises from the 1940's, where gay men were forcibly given testosterone injections, and lesbians given oestrogen in an effort to 'cure' them of being gay, to bring their sexuality into line with heterosexual people. These kind of 'procedures' have been rejected by mainstream medical practitioners for decades and it should be no different for transgender children.

    It's worth noting that Ablow has a history of attacking transgender children with extreme, inaccurate claims. Many experts and reports contradict the 'expert' advice that Ablow gives, with many agreeing that forcing transgender children to act in more gender-conforming ways is incredibly damaging and increases the levels of depression, self harm and suicide in trans youth.

    Fox News actually managed to reach a new low... I didn't even think that was possible.

    Also, I mentioned this to my mom who is a nurse, and she says that many sex hormones of the gender assigned at birth would put the child at extreme risk of cancer. Some medical 'expert'

    ...And idiot-identification expert Kira N recommends sending this overgrown child back to school, he obviously hasn't learned anything.

    So instead of helping kids that already have a hard life we should just make it harder so they die or kill themselves? Suuuuuure, totally cares about their well-being.

    I was wondering earlier today why some people from the US say that Fox isn't a good source of information.

    Now I understand.

    Simply ridiculous.

    Lol, Fox News and their "experts". Anyone remember the Muslim no-go zones? :roflmao:

    That said, Fox News is a disgrace to humanity and should be shut down.

    The hormones wouldn't work, David Reimer (as Brenda) was given estrogen and was still a boy.

    For ethical and physical reasons this study should have never happened and should never happen again on this scale, but there have been similar cases that prove gender cannot be changed.

    There are also cis males and cis females who have too high / too low of testosterone / estrogen and are still cis gender.

    I just hope no one is alienated enough to believe him.

    Fox News is awful. And it's not "news," it's opinion. Really bad, nasty opinion, all the time.

    How are people going to look back on this kind of thing when transgenerism is less taboo?

    You know, it's actually kinda funny. These people crusade the whole, "think about the children" stuff yet at the same time, they're so open to torturing children just because they are a little different.
