A famous feminist writer criticized certain medical practices to help children change genders, calling it a human rights violation in a Monday interview.
“I am horrified by the escalating prescription of puberty-blockers to children with gender dysphoria like my own: I consider this practice to be a criminal violation of human rights,” Camille Paglia, author of Sexual Personae, told The Washington Free Beacon in an exclusive interview.
Puberty blockers are used to delay adolescence development in children who believe they are the opposite gender. Adults who let their children take these blockers are putting them at risk in the future, Paglia added.
“Have the adults gone mad? Children are now being callously used for fashionable medical experiments with unknown long-term results,” Paglia went on.
Paglia also discussed her concern with today’s rhetoric that encourages young adults to permanently change their gender, pointing out that transgender surgeries can’t be reversed.
“I am very concerned about current gender theory rhetoric that convinces young people that if they feel uneasy about or alienated from their assignment to one sex, then they must take concrete steps, from hormone therapy to alarmingly irreversible surgery, to become the other sex,” she said.
Paglia also pointed out that it’s not possible for a person to change their sex.
“Furthermore, it is scientifically impossible to change sex. Except for very rare cases of intersex, which are developmental anomalies, every cell of the human body remains coded with one’s birth sex for life,” Paglia continued.
