Dr Zucker is someone every person who cares about the welfare of children around the world needs to know about.
Because while he’s Canadian and this petition is about him visiting the UK his words have international reach and beyong that he’s actually been put into a position of power in the revision of the APAs diagnostic manual the DSM, the official big book of whats mental illness. So Dr Zuckers views will effect the lives of kids in Australia
And whats so bad about this guy?
He thinks that its ok to try and ‘cure’ kids who aren’t girly or manly enough to stop them becoming Transgender. And no evidence of transgender genes or the Yogyakarta Principles will have this guy wake up and recognise the human rights of kids to their own Gender Identity and Expression.
Nope he thinks instead its ok to make parents take kids favourite toys away from them, make them stay away from their best friends, take away their favourite coloured crayons and pencils and have the kind of impact on them where its better to have a kid like this:
“He really struggles with the color pink. He really struggles with the color pink. He can’t even really look at pink,” Carol says. “He’s like an addict. He’s like, ‘Mommy, don’t take me there! Close my eyes! Cover my eyes! I can’t see that stuff; it’s all pink!’ “
Dr Zucker is a danger to the well being of GLBTI kids. His trying to force kids to fit gender stereotypes is abominable. His practices are Unethical and Abuse the Human Rights of children.
I urge everyone to be aware of Dr Zucker and his shameful harmful practices.
