DETROIT (LifeSiteNews) – The Detroit Tigers will send money to organizations that pay for so-called “gender-affirming surgeries” for minors and adults as part of its “Pride Night” game on Wednesday.

Fans who buy tickets for Wednesday’s game can donate a portion of the proceeds to a number of LGBT organizations, including the Ruth Ellis Center, as first reported by National Review.

The center provides “transition care for transgender youth” in conjunction with the Michigan-based Henry Ford Health System. The Michigan healthcare corporation’s services include “gender-affirming hormone therapy,” “facial feminization surgery,” and “top surger[ies].”

Tigers fans can also direct money toward the Trans Sistas of Color Project, which funds organizations that help people have chemical and genital mutilation services like those offered by Henry Ford Health.

One grantee “offers financial and economic assistance to [racial minorities] who identify as female-to-male in order to obtain chest reconstruction and/or genital reassignment surgery,” according to a 2020 annual report. Another group, Dem Bois, caters to individuals 21 and older.

Grantee Trans Minors Rights “advocates for empowering transgender youth to make their own decisions regarding puberty blockers,” while For the Gworls “assist[s] Black transgender people with paying rent and gender-affirming surgeries.”

Corktown Health, another recipient of Tigers’ ticket sales, offers “gender-affirming care.” The Detroit clinic will see patients as young as 16.

Doctors and gender dysphoric individuals warn about puberty blockers and surgeries

While the Detroit Tigers will help children acquire puberty blockers or have their fertility permanently destroyed, medical professionals and gender dysphoric individuals have warned of the physical and mental consequences of such procedures.

Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo issued guidance in April to medical professionals in the state and said there is a “a lack of conclusive evidence” for “gender transitioning” and “the potential for long-term, irreversible effects.”

“Based on the currently available evidence, ‘encouraging mastectomy, ovariectomy, uterine extirpation, penile disablement, tracheal shave, the prescription of hormones which are out of line with the genetic make-up of the child, or puberty blockers, are all clinical practices which run an unacceptably high risk of doing harm’” the guidance stated, citing an article published in the Journal of Infant, Child, and Adolescent Psychotherapy.

“Anyone under 18 should not be prescribed puberty blockers or hormone therapy,” the Florida Department of Health said. “Social gender transition should not be a treatment option for children or adolescents.”

Sweden recommended against puberty blockers and other hormone drugs for minors in light of significant health risks and “uncertain science” in February. The dangers of the drugs “outweigh the possible benefits,” Swedish health officials said. Finland made similar recommendations in 2020.

At least 135 U.S. teachers and teachers’ aides have already been arrested in 2022 for child-related sex crimes, ranging from child porn possession to rape, and these are only the cases reported by the media.

And, while the vast majority of teachers are upstanding citizens, we also know some are indoctrinating our children with the LGBT ideology and practices to "make an ally of them" at a wholly inappropriate age.

This is not acceptable, and must be stopped now.

SIGN: Congress must ban federal funding for schools promoting sex or LGBT ideologies among children.

With Governor Ron DeSantis already taking action in Florida, banning instruction on sexuality and gender identity by teachers among third graders and younger, it's now time to see a federal push to effectively end such meddling in the minds of our children.

Parents have a responsibility to defend their children from those who overstep boundaries, whether that's in the form of LGBT propaganda, pornography, or other forms of sexualization in schools.

Too often the media downplays what's at stake: nothing less than the innocence of our children, and sometimes even their very lives, as this grieving Mom explained in March.

SIGN and SHARE: Congress must ban federal funding for schools who attempt to sexualize children.

76% of the arrests of teachers and aides for child-related sex-crimes this year involved assaults on students. 

Jonathan van Maren reports that while one California teacher was charged with aggravated assault of a child, another was charged with 29 counts of child molestation. 

A North Carolina science teacher was charged with 27 counts of first-degree sexual exploitation of a minor and 28 counts of “indecent liberties with a student.”

Parents need to construct every possible barrier to more children being abused, and one important way is to stop groomers and potential groomers from discussing sex with children in the classroom. 

It is a violation of trust to introduce someone else's precious child to the minefield of sexuality, and it breaks down inhibitions that are meant to protect our most vulnerable young people.

SIGN TODAY: Pull federal funding from any school that sexualizes children

We already know that drag queens, some of whom admit to grooming, have no place in the classroom, and that teaching children about gender identities and sexual preferences is wholly inappropriate, but it's beyond time we took action.

Thank you for signing the petition today.

Helena Kerschner, a woman who lived as a man for several years, told Michael Knowles recently about how Internet communities can drive confused teens to embraced gender ideology. Kerschner went so far as to get puberty blockers from a Planned Parenthood with minimal obstacles in the way. She said underlying mental health issues beyond gender dysphoria can be exploited to convince someone to live as if they are the opposite sex.

“When you don’t have those good … stable relationships outside of the internet, it’s really easy for that to all go in question,” she told Knowles. “So you can begin to form beliefs that don’t stand up to scrutiny and would easily kind of fall apart if you were to verbalize them to someone who is actually critical of those ideas, but engaging you in a compassionate way.”
