Planned Parenthood doesn’t know how to stay in their lane and it’s becoming a problem.
They are now encouraging parents to teach their children that genitals do not define gender, which is interesting in a few ways. One, if people are in fact “born this way” and being trans is not a choice, then why do we need to tell them that their gender is not defined by what they see in their pants? Wouldn’t they still feel as if they were born in the wrong body regardless of that teaching? And two, why does PP feel the need to assert control over the family, whether it be in the form of encouraged abortion or (in the case of the poor saps who choose not to kill their child) telling parents how to raise their children to be progressive?
“How do I talk to my preschooler about their body?” is a set of guidelines published by Planned Parenthood that encourages parents to talk to their young children about their genitals. Weird? Yes. Creepy? Double yes.
It’s common for preschoolers to have questions about genitals and how bodies look different for boys and girls. (It’s even common for preschoolers to show each other what parts they have when left alone. That’s totally normal, but you may want to have a conversation about healthy boundaries.)
While the most simple answer is that girls have vulvas and boys have penises/testicles, that answer isn’t true for every boy and girl. Boy, girl, man, and woman are words that describe gender identity, and some people with the gender identities “boy” or “man” have vulvas, and some with the gender identity “girl” or “woman” have penises/testicles. Your genitals don’t make you a boy or a girl.
Perhaps I was raised in a simpler time, (I was preschool age in 1999), but I was never actually curious as to what other people had in their diapers. I wanted to go outside and run around or play video games. My life didn’t revolve around difficult concepts like “gender identity.” which 4 and 5 year-old brains aren’t even developed enough to grasp anyway.
If I were that age and someone tried to tell me that just because I was born a girl doesn’t mean I was a girl, I probably would have been really confused, wondering if I was really a girl or if I was born wrong. Is that really the kind of anxiety you want to put on your children? Now I’m not a parent, but I can’t imagine making a child think that they were a mistake, or confusing them about the way they were born at such a young age.
You want to teach your children about gender identity and transgender problems? Fine, but do it at an age where they can actually wrap their minds around it, as opposed to just being confused and concerned about it. Preschool is not that time.
