6,500 Reasons to Say ‘It’s a Girl’ (or ‘It’s a Boy’) by Dr. Michael Brown

You knew it had to happen sooner or later, but a respected pediatrician has warned against announcing ‘It’s a girl!’ or ‘It’s a boy!’ at the baby’s birth or when the sex is visible on an ultrasound. Why? It is because “there are scenarios in which a sex assignment may later be questioned or reversed, leading to a significant amount of distress.” In other words, the child might later identify as transgender, in which case by “assigning” it the wrong gender at birth, you do the child much harm.

As reported by Mary Hasson on The Federalist, “In the November 2017 issue of Pediatrics, Dr. Leena Nahata, a pediatric endocrinologist at the highly ranked Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, sounds the alarm about the ‘gender reveal’ phenomenon. She warns that a sonogram posted to Facebook, or a party to announce the unborn child’s sex, is a hazard to ‘pediatric health.’ So is the traditional delivery room cry of ‘It’s a girl!’ or ‘It’s a boy!’”

Hasson continues, “Nahata isn’t concerned about blurry sonograms that fail to capture anatomical details. She’s also not really talking about infants born with ‘atypical’ genitals, requiring further tests to determine if the baby is a boy or a girl. (She acknowledges that those cases are so ‘rare’ that they occur just once among ‘4500 to 5500 infants’—i.e., in about 0.02 percent of newborns.) No, Nahata wants parents to embrace a trans-friendly world premised on the idea that ‘[r]egardless of gender assignment at birth, some kids may later identify as the opposite gender.’”

This is typical of what I call “transanity.” Transgender activists want to turn the whole world upside down because of the perceived struggles of less than 1 percent of the population. They want to deny the reality that biological sex corresponds to gender identity in roughly 99 percent of all human beings because of the emotional and mental distress experienced by roughly 1 percent.

That would be like removing colors from street signs and stop lights because some people are color blind…
