According to RT, doctors have discovered that the number of children wanting to switch sex’ is doubling each year in Sweden.

Louise Frisen, who is a child psychologist at the Astrid Lindgren Children’s Hospital, told Swedish daily Aftonbladet that last year 197 children wanted to undergo analysis to swap to the opposite sex.

“There’s a 100 percent increase in numbers each year,” said Frisen, before adding
“there [are] more and more young people, and more children coming at very young ages. The increase is identical on the adult side too.”

What could be the cause…

Cecilia Dhejne, chief of the gender identity investigation team at the Karolinska University Hospital, said that the increase in numbers reflected a “greater openness” in Swedish society.

“The problem in Sweden is that there is a long queue for people both for initiating an investigation into their gender identity and for the different stages of treatment across the country. It is worrying.” Dhejne claimed, adding “Having to go and wait aggravates the mental health of transgender people. You put the lives of young people on standby, and it’s not good,”

Not everyone in the medical field agrees that this is a positive change.

The American College of Pediatricians has urged legislators and healthcare professionals to remove all policies that makes it acceptable to condition children to think that “chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex.” is normal.

“Conditioning children into believing a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse,” the group explained in an open letter.

“Endorsing gender discordance as normal via public education and legal policies will confuse children and parents, leading more children to present to ‘gender clinics’ where they will be given puberty-blocking drugs,” the statement said. Which in return, could lead to “unnecessary surgical mutilation of their healthy body parts as young adults.”

The American College of Pediatricians also present the fact that “Rates of suicide are nearly twenty times greater among adults who use cross-sex hormones and undergo sex reassignment surgery, even in Sweden which is among the most LGBTQ – affirming countries.” adding that “According to the DSM-V, as many as 98% of gender confused boys and 88% of gender-confused girls eventually accept their biological sex after naturally passing through puberty.”

The group are not the only ones voicing their opinions about this subject.

    I was a long time subscriber to National Geographic. After receiving the Gender Revolution issue in the mail though, I cancelled immediately.

    These folks are nuts. So – they want to have a lifetime of being needy, and I am sure this makes them feel ‘special” – but what happens when everyone switches?

    Swedenstan is lost…

      So much for the atheist socialist paradise. Swedish gender-benders just keep giving their immigrants more targets and ammunition to get themselves killed. It’s collective suicide.

    I don’t think the IslamoPedophiles will care much.
    Ever heard of bachie bazaei ?

    When I was a young kid, I was never much of a girly girl. I’ve always hated pink and tended to act more like a boy. The difference between me and transgender people is that I don’t feel the need to attempt to change my gender. What is wrong with acting more like the other gender without trying to BE the other gender?

      You make a fine point. Just be yourself!

      Same. I was so against girly stuff that I started wearing boy clothes as a pre-teen. Only lasted a couple years but a good decade later I’m still not girly. I struggle to find a balance between being stereotypically feminine and casual tomboy. However, Im not a trans person nor do I want to be.

        But some do.

    Sadly, the already sky high suicide rate in Sweden can also be expected to double yearly.

    • Adrian1x

      I am not sure what you mean by sky high, but the US has higher rates by WHO rankings. Sweden ranks 58th highest in the world.

      • DaisyToo

        Which doesn’t mean that Sweden doesn’t have sky high rates of suicide. But thanks for the clarification.

    The war of the sexes and the war on sex norms will end western civilization. The west already doesn’t reproduce at a rate to maintain the population and has to import people through immigration to keep the population growing. Eventually western culture will just be replaced by the cultures able to continue population growth.

    First, these folks tried to split gender apart from sex. It’s not. Gender a term for definition and classification to use with genetics and biology. The ‘transgender community’ got the media to fall for this. When the MSM found out how much money they could make on clickbait stories, they made it into an industry.

    The most telling fact about what a scam of ‘transgenderism’ can be derived from the fact that the vast majority of those who want to ‘change’ their gender are children.The get tons of attention and are made to feel special. They are told they are heroes and pioneers. They get their pictures on magazine and on TV. However, they’re never told that they are victims of idiotic and abusive parents and a complicit government bureaucracy. Note that the official named in the story works for the chief of the “gender identity investigation team at the Karolinska University Hospital.” Do you really think she’s going to endanger her cushy job and fat pension to admit that ‘transgenderism’ has no basis in scientific fact and is promoting child abuse? Sweden, you can expect a crop of mentally unstable, suicidal, and resentful young adults within the next decade.

    Doubling every year. So. The rate will eventually stabilize- probably to less than one percent. Take a chill pill, this isn’t the epidemic the title implies. (David)
