“Tony Perkins actually says that unidentified forces are turning children gay or trans.”
If Tony Perkins ever tells the truth it is by accident.
Friday’s missive from Tony Perkins is titled: Our children should never be used as guinea pigs in social experiments. I am certain that you know what’s coming.
Tony Perkins disapproves of transgender kids due to scripture. The notion that any of his bigotry has something to do with the welfare of children is ludicrous.
The hate group leader (Family Research Council) has a habit of being untruthful. Apparently the scripture associated with “bearing false witness” has no meaning for Perkins. Perhaps it doesn’t count when the lies are about LGBTQ persons.
Biological males have inherent physiological advantages that make their participation in women’s sports unfair. Despite being called “transphobic” and worse, FRC experts have testified that our children should never be used as guinea pigs in social experiments!
First of all transgender girls do not have a biological advantage because, on puberty blockers, they have negligible testosterone. They do not develop secondary sex characteristics including male muscle mass.
Mr. Perkins is indifferent to the science.
Secondly, Family Research Council doesn’t have any qualified experts in regards to gender-diverse children and adolescents. That is just a flat-out lie. Peter Sprigg is FRC’s LGBTQ go-to guy. Sprigg is a Baptist preacher.
Thirdly, no one in the employ of Family Research Council has the training and experience to contest the gender-affirming care model which is the basis for the clinical practice standards of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Fourthly, children are neither experiments nor guinea pigs (perhaps that is redundant). Children are being treated according to the best available medical science.
Again, these Defenders of the Faith are more interested in Genesis 1:27 than the welfare of children.
Perkins’ mendacity continues:
[U.S. Secretary of Education] Cardona has been tasked with facilitating such pro-transgender policies nationwide, without regard for the concerns of local parents and school boards.
FRC experts and local leaders are on the front lines, pushing back against this agenda to open girls’ sports, bathrooms, and locker rooms to biological boys.
If parents have concerns then they are based upon the fear mongering of transphobic bigots like Tony Perkins. And, as I said, FRC does not have any experts.
The simple fact is that these people cannot point to a single instance where transgender girls are dominating competition. The NCAA has had a policy in place for ten years. If that has created any controversy, I cannot find it.
“In other words, the hate group is soliciting donations by exploiting vulnerable children.”
Previously, regarding Sec. Cardona, Perkins wrote this lie:
Newly confirmed Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona hails from Connecticut, where he championed the idea of biological boys who identify as girls participating in female sports.
Cardona did say in his confirmation hearing that he supports the participation of transgender students in athletics. However, he “championed” nothing related to the issue.
Furthermore, the defendants in the federal lawsuit which was since been dismissed were the Connecticut Association of Schools-Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CAS-CIAC), and the boards of education of public school districts in Bloomfield, Cromwell, Glastonbury, Canton and Danbury.
CAS-CIAC are private organizations. Connecticut has 200 school districts. Only five were defendants which suggests a lack of centralized policy.
What this is really all about:
“He is also claiming — with no evidence whatsoever — that trans girls pose a danger to cisgender girls.”
In other words, the hate group is soliciting donations by exploiting vulnerable children. Following the money-beg Perkins writes:
Parents of young children don’t support indoctrinating young ones into LGBT lifestyles or allowing special rights for LGBT-identifying individuals to supersede safety concerns.
Tony Perkins actually says that unidentified forces are turning children gay or trans. He is also claiming — with no evidence whatsoever — that trans girls pose a danger to cisgender girls. Perkins has no interest in the fact that it has not happened.
Tony Perkins is a disgusting slime ball. I continue to press the issue of FRC’s status as a church with the Internal Revenue Service and the Senate Committee on Finance.
