British actor Rupert Everett spoke out about parents and clinicians giving sex hormones to confused children to help them "transition" at an early age.
Everett, who is openly gay, warned parents not to allow their children to take hormones because most gender confused children grow out of their Gender Dysphoria.
“It’s nice to be allowed to express yourself,” Everett told The Sunday Times magazine, “but the hormone thing, very young, is a big step. I think a lot of children have ambivalence when they're very young to what sex they are or what they feel about everyone. And there should be a way of embracing it” short of doing permanent damage.
Everett, 57, criticized American Olympic star Bruce Jenner, whose reality TV show I Am Cait was recently cancelled after he refused to go along with the sex change plot for season 3.
Everett scolded Jenner for transitioning when Jenner had “no clue” what it meant to be transgender.
Jenner, 66, is a transvestite -- a heterosexual male who prefers feminine clothing. The father-of-6 has repeatedly stated he is not sexually attracted to men.
Everett is dismayed that boys are encouraged to be transgender if they exhibit a preference for feminine clothing, or girls are pushed to be "transmen" if they are tomboys.
Everett said, growing up, “I really wanted to be a girl. Thank God the world of now wasn’t then, because I’d be on hormones and I’d be a woman. After I was 15 I never wanted to be a woman again.”
Psychologists warn that some children who are labeled transgender actually grow up to be gay or bisexual, not transgender.
In Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools teachers are instructed to help children "identify" their gender. The schools are instructed to refer to biological males as "girls" and biological females as "boys". This conflicts with gender fluid advocates who preach that society at large should not label girls and boys by their birth sex.
Jesse Singal explained in New York Magazine, that Toronto child psychologist Dr. Kenneth Zucker and other clinicians “believe that messages from family, peers, and society do a huge amount of the work of helping to form, reinforce, and solidify gender identities, and that at young ages these identities tend to be quite malleable. There’s great potential for confusion.”
