Boston's National Public Radio affiliate did a slick (and very disturbing) show about a summer camp for "transgender children" and their efforts to "become" the opposite sex. It featured the support from terribly misguided parents who encourage that behavior, and the transgender-activist camp counselors who facilitate it. Also featured was Barney Frank who was raising money for the camp!
LISTEN TO THE INTERVIEW HERE. Date of show: 5/25/10:
Note: Brian Camenker of MassResistance comes in at 13:35--about 2/3 thru.
But worse, they interviewed in studio Dr. Norman Spack, the bizarre doctor at Boston Children's Hospital who gives young children powerful drugs to delay their puberty so they can be more easily operated on later to "change" their sex.
In the show, Spack's work was celebrated as groundbreaking and modern. It was a textbook NPR bias piece - sophisticated, emotional, erudite, progressive-sounding and thoroughly slanted. It had to be, because the subject matter was thoroughly disturbing and radical.
But to include a few words from the "other side" so they brought in Brian Camenker of MassResistance in the show for a few minutes. Well, Camenker basically poured cold water all over it, rightly describing Dr. Spack's work as "madness," "destructive" and "extremely fringe in the medical community" among other things. They couldn't get rid of him fast enough. As one of their producers later admitted, Camenker "went against the grain of the show".
This was part of the media's propaganda machine getting firing up for the Transgender Rights and Hate Crimes bill (H1728) which was still in committee awaiting a vote.
Unfortunately, in today's world (as George Orwell observed) the truth must constantly be restated. Things are only going to get worse before they get better. Everyone must be willing to confront this issue, or fringe "medical" practices such as Spack's will become routine.
