A transsexual pioneer and human rights activist has criticized modern trans activists and said children are facing “indoctrination”.

Buck Angel, a 59-year-old with gender dysphoria, told Fox News that when he began the transition 30 years ago, there was a system and structure that ensured that he was certain of his gender identity. He said that the process, a harm of childrenit has deteriorated since then.

“We now have trans with no gender dysphoria, no need for mental health care, self-identification, affirmation therapy,” Angel, who said he was “a big advocate of mental health care,” told Fox News. “This tells me on some level, some form of indoctrination.”

Angel, who said he never felt like a woman, told Fox News he was one of the first to enter Los Angeles to use transition hormones. Eventually he became a porn star before becoming an advocate of self-acceptance with a mission to redefine the genre.

“I’m an elder in a community that I’ve helped build,” Angel told Fox News, who said he took a hard hit for speaking out. “Now I’ve been told I’m old and out of date.”

“Our community is letting our community down,” he added. “We’re not loving and we don’t care. We’re weird.”

Angel said his parents allowed him to switch socially when he was a child, meaning he could make behavioral changes, such as using a new name and dressing more masculine. He also said it was a long process before he was allowed to receive hormones towards the end of his 20s.

“I see a great, huge desire to quickly get these kids, for lack of a better term, into this space of trans kids,” and put them on puberty blocks, Angel told Fox News. “I personally believe that stopping puberty could be disastrous.”

Puberty blockers are pharmaceutical products used off label to prevent trans children from developing as their birth gender. If a child decides to switch, they can be given hormones to develop as their preferred sex.

The Department of Health and Human Services consider puberty blockers reversible, but studies have shown they can have long-lasting side effects, including bone thinning. Teens who take hormone therapy can also become infertile, studies have shown.

“This isn’t a game, and it’s not something I can pick or choose,” Angel said. “Once you choose this life and do what I did, there is really no going back.”

Angel made it clear that he knows some children would benefit from puberty blockersbut “they are very few and far between. It’s not the amount of children who are immediately put on blockers with no mental health care, without the desire to watch this kid find his own space.”

Dr Marci Bowers, a world-renowned vaginoplasty surgeon and president-elect of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health, said trans children who are put on puberty blockers before having an orgasm may have a hard time achieving one if they continue the transition. and undergo genital surgery, though research on the subject is limited.

“And my fear for these young children who never experience orgasm before undergoing surgery will reach adulthood and try to find intimacy and realize they don’t know how to respond sexually.” Bowers told Abigail Shrierauthor of the controversial book “Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters”.

Additionally, Angel stressed that therapy is an essential part of the transition. He said doctors shouldn’t simply claim a child’s self-identification as trans.

“If a kid says he’s trans, he’s trans — oh, a kid says he’s an elephant, am I an elephant? Are you kidding? That’s so ridiculous,” Angel told Fox News.

“It’s dangerous and it’s not therapy,” he continued. “Therapy is push back on some level. It’s push back so you can see, ‘Am I making the right choice?’”

Angel said immediately affirming a child’s self-identification without questioning it is ultimately harmful.

“I see something as an elder in this community that isn’t right,” he said. “It is not only harming the community, it is harming a group of people who should never be in this space.”

Angel also criticized the rhetoric about trans activism.

“Dishonesty grows every day,” Angel told Fox News.

She said that phrases like “trans women are women”, “uterus havers” and “people with periods” are “disrespectful to the women’s space and, secondly, disrespectful to us.”

“I’m not a biological man,” Angel said. “I never will be. I’m very honest about that, and that’s why the world accepts me.”

“So why do we teach children to lie?” she told Fox News.
