Clinical Psychologist Dr. Jordan Peterson criticizes the American Psychology Association over its transgender guidelines
He has often spoken against gender pronouns and has repeatedly said he will not cede the linguistic territory to radical ideologues. He said, “We are sacrificing our children on the altar of a brutal, far-left ideology.”
Peterson’s eye on APA’s radical new guidelines
The American Psychological Association (APA) is the body charged with establishing the norms and ideals for clinical practice worldwide. “Some of their ‘guidelines’ are appalling…,” he said.
According to APA, psychologists understand that gender is a ‘nonbinary construct that allows for a range of gender identities and that a person’s gender identity may not align with sex assigned at birth.” [Guideline 1]
Democrats, doctors call it ‘Gender Affirming Care’
Dr. Peterson was appalled when he saw a video featuring an American surgeon bragging that he had performed more than 3,000 double mastectomies on young women.
The Psychological Association’s “trans-affirmative” care
APA’s ‘Task Force on Guidelines for Psychological Practice with Transgender and Gender Nonconforming People (TGNC)’ insists that psychologists and other professional counselors offer “trans-affirmative” care.
Standards are changing, and those in Peterson’s field of medicine have surrendered to this groupthink.
Gender reassignment surgery spikes
Author Abigael Shrier calls it the transgender craze that’s plaguing America.
One begs to ask, can we still trust psychologists if they no longer hold on to science but ideology?
“We have crossed the line from ideological possession to active malevolence—and we are multiplying our sin by attributing our appalling actions to ‘compassion.'” Heaven helps us. Indeed, he said.
Jordan Peterson is an intellectual atheist who recently found peace knowing that the Christian God of the Bible is real.
