It shouldn’t surprise anyone that in today’s world there are parents actively trying to force mental disorders on their kids, especially in an age where we’re supposed to celebrate men beating women in sports — sometimes literally beating them — with cheers and applause while calling it “brave.”

According to the Daily Caller, an online group of parents have formed a community of people with small children who are transgendered.

Disgustingly, a few of these parents have expressed disappointment that their children have no interest in being transgender, while others seek out prosthetics and tools to place between their children’s legs to make them more like another sex:

A watchdog group called 4thWaveNow is raising awareness online about “the ever-accelerating medical and media fascination with the phenomenon of ‘transgender children.’” This week, the group released screenshots from a private Facebook group called Parents of Transgender Children, which expose multiple conversations surrounding the practices of “packing“ and “tucking“ for supposedly transgender children as young as five years old.

Some conversations involve parents expressing confusion at their child’s lack of interest in prosthetic penises.

“My kid doesn’t seem that miffed about not having a penis, which frankly throws me off a bit,” one reads.

Others simply ask for recommendations for the best “age appropriate” fake penises for their young children, as well as for “stand-to-pee” (STP) devices.

“The peeing upright is more important than the bulge for my 6 year old,” reads another.

The DailyCaller reported of a website known as “TranzWear,” which appears to be popular with these “transparents.” Going to the website reveals a fake “semi-erect” penis intended for use by 5-year-olds you can buy for your daughter. They also include a “best boy bump” so that a girl can have an “age appropriate” bulge where her genitals are.

The Facebook group mentioned by the Daily Caller is just one of many closed Facebook groups, and the “transparent” community ranges far beyond that one social media network as well. Tumblr and Reddit both contain “transparent” communities. A recent question in one of the Reddit communities asked for legal advice on how to take custody away from a parent that isn’t pushing transgenderism on her sister’s children.

Transgenderism is a relatively new phrase to the public consciousness and is a politically correct way of describing the mental disorder known as “gender dysphoria.” This name change alone is dangerous to many as it downplays the dangers associated with the mental disorder, including the 41 percent suicide rate that exists among those with the disorder. This increases to 50 percent for teens.

What’s more, the risk for suicide goes up 19 times after having transition surgeries.

These are frightening statistics, and in light of them, makes the forcing of gender dysphoria upon a child nothing short of child abuse.
