(POLL) Most support banning transgender surgery in children

Several states have recently passed laws prohibiting transgender treatment for minors, and most voters say they approve of such laws.

That’s according to Rasmussen Reports.

The survey finds that 58% of likely US voters say they approve of legislation making it illegal to perform surgery on boys to make them appear to be girls or vice versa, including 46% who say they “strongly approve” of such laws.

Thirty-seven percent (34%) say they disapprove of states passing laws to ban such surgeries on minors, including 21% who say they “strongly disapprove.” 

There has been a marked spike in such surgeries in recent years with hospitals and doctors making millions of dollar on the controversial procedures.

South Dakota recently became the sixth state to ban surgeries for the psychological disorder known as “dysphoria.” The surgeries include procedures such as removing a boy’s genitals and performing mastectomies on healthy girls. Republican Gov. Kristi Noem signed into law the “Help Not Harm Bill.”

Nationwide, Republican voters are the most likely to voice strong support of such legislation.  

Seventy-two percent (72%) of Republicans approve of state laws making it illegal to perform sex-change surgery on minors, including 61% who “strongly approve.”

Forty-five percent (45%) of Democrats approve of states banning sex-change surgery for minors, including 30% who “strongly approve,” while 45% of Democrats disapprove of such laws, including 25% who “strongly disapprove.”

Among voters not affiliated with either major party, 61% at least somewhat approve of state laws making it illegal to perform sex-change surgery on minors, while 30% say they disapprove.

  1. Sharyl and Full Measure Team,

    To understand, better, the
    ——-ROOT Cause——-
    of “Gender Dysphoria” :

    Forwarded Message :

    Dear Dr. Naomi Wolf et al.,

    Re : The Psychology Underpinning America’s Decline in Civility

    Keep in mind, every male and female on
    planet Earth has a brain configuration
    capable of expressing both LOGIC ( left-
    hemisphere rational/masculine ) and
    EMOTION ( right-hemisphere emotional/
    feminine )—the two sex-related expressions
    – logic and emotion – mostly correspond
    morphologically with MALE ( logical guys )
    and FEMALE ( emotional gals ).

    G E N E R A L L Y :
    So-called “gender dysphoria” results from
    children raised without two male/female
    parents—as absence of either one during
    childrearing years may prevent MODELING
    for each boy and girl, to LEARN, by
    example, what “boy” and “girl” means in
    at-large society. Genetics/heritage drives
    that NORMAL inclination in either sex,
    to be a boy or girl ( matching genitalia
    with genetic masculine or feminine be-
    haviors ). However, lack of modeling can
    cause gender-dysphoric C O N F U –
    S I O N and resulting CROSS-MODELING
    outcomes, where a boy wishes to dress
    like a girl, and a girl like a boy ( yes,
    Freud was correct ! ).

  2. Is mental illness (delusion) sufficient reason to subject minors to mutilation surgery?

    “psychology : a persistent false psychotic belief regarding the self or persons or objects outside the self that is maintained despite indisputable evidence to the contrary” — Merriam Webster

    Children are impressionable and easily manipulated, even if they are “smart”. Someone wishing to undergo a mutilation surgery should be required to watch a video of an actual surgery and then interviews with people who have done so to discuss the outcomes, including the recovery period and lasting effects.

      Re : psychology of PORN

      Why are parents removing PORN-
      type books from school libraries
      while – with just two clicks on a
      computer mouse – they’re able to
      access EXTREMELY mind-damaging
      SEX Acts of every conceivable kind,
      including bestiality ?

      Children subjected to PORNOGRAPHY

      — Ted Bundy and Porn // Ten Commandments // Death-to-America List —

      Dear Doctor Miller,

      Re: the S & M “50 Shades . . .“ franchise

      His childhood traumas aside, TED BUNDY had self-analyzed!
      —and reported, that his deadly sexual habit was groomed into
      existence by pornography (( S & M pornography )) !

      Media and psychologists and sociologists had responded by
      coming to the defense of the pornography/pornographers,
      not expressing ANY serious consideration of Bundy’s high I.Q.

      Why not any thoughtful analyses by the professional
      academics ?

      After Bundy’s initial comment and public responses, nothing
      more was said of it.

      Pornography destroys civilized society, but PROFITS rule. And
      serial-killer/cannibal Jeffrey Dhamer had been similarly hooked
      on violent porn magazines during childhood.

      Always mention Bundy’s own analysis, to be fair to T R U T H .

      1. Easy answer. Parents can easily restrict pc’s, iPads and more from going to these sites. They may be able to go elsewhere to view but making it more difficult can work.
