Pediatricians are not happy with what is occurring in schools across the country. On April 1, 2010, a letter was mailed to school superintendents across the United States, urging administrators and school personnel to refrain from validating or promoting homosexual behavior. “We are increasingly concerned that in many cases efforts to help students who exhibit same sex attractions and/or gender confusion are based on incomplete or inaccurate information,” states the letter.
The letter informs educators that:
- “premature labeling,” could encourage some teens to engage in harmful behaviors “that they otherwise would not pursue.” And while schools have a “legitimate role to provide a safe environment for respectful self-expression for all students,” it is not for them to “affirm” a student’s perceived same-sex attraction.
- “Rigorous studies demonstrate that most adolescents who initially experience same-sex attraction, or are sexually confused, no longer experience such attractions by age 25.”
- “In dealing with adolescents experiencing same-sex attraction, it is essential to understand that there is no scientific evidence that an individual is born ‘gay’ or ‘transgendered.’”
The American College of Pediatricians efforts were timely as April is the month when gay advocates across the country promote in schools their annual “National Day of Silence.” However, the primary thrust of the letter was to direct educators to the new Web resource, www.factsaboutyouth.com which is intended to give rebuttal to the American Psychological Association (APA) and their campaign to validate same-sex behavior and promote their brochure “Just the Facts about Youth and Sexual Orientation.” The American College of Pediatricians was founded in 2003 as an option for pediatricians who do not support the normalization of same-sex behavior, nor do they believe that allowing gays to adopt is healthy for children.
For the sake of your children, we encourage you to visit www.factsaboutyouth.com and read, read, read. Don’t be fooled by the rhetoric that all the medical community believes that homosexual behavior and lifestyle should be accepted as normal and healthy. This is one professional group that will certainly tell you otherwise.
