Unhinged: Psychologist claims 2-year-olds can know if they’re transgender

Psychologist claims 2-year-olds can know if they’re transgender

A psychologist who advocates for “gender fluidity” claims that kids can know by age 2 if they’re transgender. She thinks parents should “throw out the idea that gender nonconformity is a disorder” and encourage their children to experiment.
Diane Ehrensaft of the University of California San Francisco, who co-founded UCSF’s Child and Adolescent Gender Center, encourages a “gender variant journey,” reported.
“We expect a 2-year-old to know ‘I am boy. I am girl.’ So why can’t that also apply to transgender children?” Ehrensaft told the Associated Press.
Johanna Olson-Kennedy, another supposed expert in transgender children, encouraged parents to “do a weekend as a different gender” where children can use different pronouns to experiment.
On Thursday’s “The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson,” Brad Staggs shared this transgender update, while father of two, Kal Elsebai, debunked the idea that toddlers can be that self-aware.
Kal pointed out how ridiculous it is to say that a small child can make that kind of decision. He explained how his 2-year-old daughter will say “yes” to being asked if she’s a boy or a girl or any other question: “Hey, honey, are you a nacho? She’ll say yes.”
