Among the sponsors of the San Diego pride parade are the Rady Children’s Hospital of San Diego, as well as an array of other institutions in the healthcare industry.
The Rady Children’s Hospital of San Diego has a Center for “Gender-Affirming” Care, which offers a number of services such as “comprehensive gender assessment,” “surgical referrals,” “insurance advocacy,” “gender-affirming medical care,” and “gender-affirming vocal therapy,” among others. The hospital also offers hormone replacement therapy and puberty blockers to children.
Beyond just profiting from children’s attempts to change their sex, the children’s hospital also directly encourages the phenomena by promoting books intended for children. The children’s hospital promotes a number of books on their resources page that directly encourage children to attempt to change their sex, including “The Transgender Child,” “The Gender Creative Child,” and “I am Jazz.” The page also includes a graphic that claims that gender is a spectrum and a “range of expression,” also specifically claiming that it is not defined by body parts or chromosomes. “I am Jazz” follows a boy who “knew that she had a girl’s brain in a boy’s body” since he was two.
On the resource list are a number of organizations that promote the idea that children can change their sex. One such organization, which is linked to on the Rady Children Hospital of San Diego’s website, is the Endocrine Society. The Endocrine Society advocates for “gender diverse youth” to have access to “puberty suppression, hormone therapy, and medically indicated surgery,” and that such medical interventions should be covered by insurance.
Such services can be very costly for patients – and profitable for providers – with puberty blockers costing up to $1,200 a month for injections or $18,000 for an injection. Meanwhile, certain surgeries can range in cost from $10,000 to $30,000, or even $20,000 to $50,000 and beyond, depending on the desired results.
The children’s hospital’s Center for Gender Affirming Care promoted a number of LGBTQ advocacy groups that endorse child sex change attempts, including GLAAD and GenderSpectrum. The Rady Children’s Hospital of San Diego was only one of several healthcare institutions to sponsor the San Diego Pride parade. The children’s hospital was joined by AMN Healthcare, Kaiser Permanente, and UC San Diego Health….
The above comes from a July 1 posting on Breitbart
As Anthony Esolen pointed out in a recent Crisis article, this will continue to deteriorate and degenerate because celebrating abnormal behavior encourages things to worsen. People get bored with run-of-the-mill depravity and seek thrills from greater evils. Sex with children will be celebrated before this decade is over. Mark my words. That’s where we’re going. Maybe even sex with animals will be celebrated.
This has been the boldly impudent objective from the get go. Consent laws in California allow minors 12 and over to consent to all manner of STD treatment and abortion without a parent/guardian’s knowledge. Not so for an appendectomy…weird, I know…An absolute set up for trafficking and abuse by predator adults. Makes sense that this is largely championed by the California public educational system which is one of the most high risk settings for sexual abuse of children in the world.
This too…If you knew transgender people you wouldn’t say they are transgender because they are seeking thrills. Perhaps you ought to have conversations with the people you demonize before you take your hostile remarks public.
Confusion about your maleness or femaleness isn’t an identity. It’s a pathology. Watch the excellent documentary by Matt Walsh “What is a woman?” for how it reveals the intellectual vapidness of the transgender movement, even among medical and academic professionals. They are weirdos.
YFC and his syndicate will promote any pathology for their political gain, all of this LGBT garbage is a social contagion
A reminder to bohemond that bearing false witness against neighbor (and fellow Catholics) is a violation of the Commandments.
Reminder to YFC the promotion and the excusing of the sin of sodomy is a sin that cries to heaven for vengeance, and nothing I stated was a sin..,everything you state is
No, I would say that that they are terribly confused, dysphoric, and need psychological and spiritual help.
By the way, is it true that Bishop McElroy was the Grand Marshall of the San Diego “Pride” Parade?
I found it so interesting that Yelp lists both St. Dominic and Star of the Sea parishes as among the most gay friendly churches in the City. I know some people I should recommend go visit.
Can’t tell if this is a troll comment or not, so apologies if not…but…does go to the heart of the darkness that drives this ideology. Anyone that is sincere knows that if these parishes are ‘gay’ friendly, it is because they encourage and support sanctified and chaste/celibate living for all not having received the sacrament of matrimony. But recommend away…there may be a holy life waiting…
Too many stories to count in a quick google search…this one just from today (7/4) out of Southern CA. It is just mind boggling how the white progressive privileged elites remain in power in California. Why is there such hatred of humanity by the voters there?
One reason many in the teacher’s unions are okay with abortions without parental notification is that it gets rid of the evidence when an underaged female is molested. I do not remember back when I went to public school here in California (when abortion was illegal) any underaged female having an affair with a teacher. Many had crushes on teachers, but there were no affairs because the chances of a teacher getting caught and prosecuted were almost certain. There were fewer divorces and more fathers at home too.
It is not just “white” elites that push this stuff. It is in all cultures to a certain extent.
Fads are now accepted as scientific fact.
When are we going to recognize that a person who watches Top Gun has the RIGHT to fly a jet off of an aircraft carrier and fight the bad guys? (That was judgmental!! I should have said “the OTHER persons”)
You can judge a book by its cover, if you get my drift. People who look not well in the head, aren’t well in the head. These pride parades are freak shows. You can judge a book by its cover is all I’m saying.
