Number of Swedish Children Wanting to Change Gender Doubling Each Year

by VIRGINIA HALE15 Mar 2017
Sweden’s health minister has promised more support for gender identity clinics as it emerged that the number of children claiming to be in the wrong body has risen 100 per cent each year.

Louise Frisén, child psychiatrist at the Astrid Lindgren Children’s Hospital, told Aftonbladet that in 2016, the gender investigation team saw 197 children who were interested in ‘transitioning’ to becoming the opposite sex.
“There’s a 100 per cent increase in numbers each year, and the people we’re seeing are younger and younger and more and more children are coming at very young ages,” she said, adding that “the increase is identical on the adult side of things, too,” she said.

In recent years, left wing activists along with global media enterprises like National Geographic have worked hard to promote the concept of ‘transgender children’, but there is increasing evidence that gender ideology puts minors’ mental health at risk.
There is also mounting evidence that children are too young to choose their gender. In June, the American College of Pediatricians released an open letter asserting that so-called trans children are psychologically confused.
“Conditioning children into believing that a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse,” it read.
