Transgender Resources


 Where to turn when your child needs help.

GirlWithTearMichelle Cretella, M.D.  is a pediatrician and the Executive Director of the American College of Pediatricians (ACPeds).

According to Dr.  Cretella, "Virtually every public institution has transformed all of Western society into a transgendering cult within which a few courageous and sane physicians and counselors are committed to helping parents save their propagandized, confused, and emotionally troubled children.  How does one save a patient from a cult while they are still firmly entrenched within it? This is a difficult task to say the least."

The ACPeds has produced a resource for parents whose children suffer from gender identity issues and who may be, or already are, in danger from this cult.  This webpage, which may be downloaded as a PDF, aids parents in finding counselors for children who struggle with accepting their biological sex.

You will be able to read Dr.  Cretella's advice on how to approach your child and how to find and interview therapists to ensure they will help heal rather "seek to validate and affirm your child's gender identity disturbance as normal."

In addition, you will find a link to an online parent support community: Parents with children who seem to display Rapid-Onset Gender Dysphoria (ROGD).

She has also created a free downloadable brochure designed for children and young adults who believe that taking drugs and undergoing surgery will cure their perceived unhappiness with their biological sex.  It acknowledges their suffering and asks questions they may not even know are pertinent to transgendering, such as: "Do I want to be on medication for the rest of my life?" "Am I ready to be sterile?" and "Can I live with this decision forever? Have I ever changed my mind before?"
