Lesbians Giving “their son” Controversial Puberty Blockers

(Harrisburg) — Further proof that lesbians should not be permitted to adopt is found in a story out of California where two “mommies” believe “their son” is really a girl and have begun a controversial hormone treatment to delay puberty.    The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), a statewide child advocacy group, is astounded that the authorities have not been called in to investigate.

“This young boy is being raised by two mommies and there is not apparently a father figure in his life.  Their message to him, just through the family structure in which he is being raised, gives the very clear message that men are unimportant  and unnecessary,” noted Diane Gramley, President of the AFA of PA.

Concerns from others have included the medical and psychological risks posed for a young child who begins using puberty blockers.  The American Psychological Association views such gender confusion as a mental disorder — gender identity disorder.  It would be better for this little boy to have a good counselor rather than drugs pumped into his system to stop his natural progression into puberty.

This little boy adopted by two women in a lesbian relationship is another victim of the culture war.  He is another guinea pig in this wrong-headed effort to redefine family.  Too many adults have place their desires before the needs of children and children do best raised by their married biological mother and father.

“Common sense tells us that a little boy needs the influence of a father to teach him how to be a boy and needs other boys to interact with to encourage that image.  Experts recognize that these two factors can change the way a little boy views himself and that the healthy psychological development of the little boy must include feeling accepted by  and identifying with his father.  Something this little boy has been deprived of,” Gramley further stated.

Where are the adults who are supposed to protect our nation’s children?
