The U.K. media has facilitated the harmful idea that children can be transsexual, a parental campaign group has warned.
Transgender Trend, a group of concerned parents who challenge pro-trans propaganda, says the media—and the BBC in particular—are responsible for introducing and normalizing the idea that children can be “trapped in the wrong body.”
In an article published earlier this week, it set out the results of a study of media output from April 1, 2016 to March 31, 2017.
Transgender Trend argues that the media has facilitated a rapid public acceptance, not just of transsexualism, but of “the completely new belief that children are ‘transgender,’ together with the idea that invasive medical intervention is a necessity.”
It says a quick search reveals that the “BBC alone has covered the subject of ‘transgender kids’ in at least 35 online articles, 23 radio broadcasts and 7 TV shows” in a 12-month period.
Its examination of newspaper coverage also found that 114 UK-based articles on transsexual children were published between April 2016 and March 2017.
After analyzing the language in each of the articles, the group discovered an overwhelming tendency toward endorsing the trans lobby’s agenda.
