Psst. The first one’s free, kid.
Identity Inc, an Anchorage-based advocacy group for those with alternative gender and sexual preferences, is encouraging children to get in touch with the organization if the children want help getting puberty blocking chemical treatments. In a social media post, Identity Inc. tells kids they will be put in contact with the Rainbow Youth Project USA, which helps children get the chemical treatments that are the first step in transgenderism. Once children block their progress through puberty by using hormones, they can then later get surgically castrated, have their breasts removed, and get other surgeries to change their appearance so they look more like the opposite gender.
Boys who take these drugs can force their voices to remain at a higher range and they may be able to prevent facial and chest hair from appearing. For girls, they can prevent the onset of their menstrual cycle, and can slow down the growth of breasts. Children who are enticed to go this route face a lifetime of dependency on pharmaceuticals and many of them endure side effects in what is still uncharted and unregulated medical territory.
Rainbow Youth Project USA offers financial help for youth who wish to transition their gender appearance, which is also called “gender affirming care.”
But wait, there’s more: For those children living in states that prohibit Medicaid public funds from being used for such a purpose, the Rainbow Youth Project USA will offer help, including scheduling appointments for children with physicians who do this kind of work.
Identity Inc. offers a list of Alaska health care providers who are working in this field, which the group calls “LGBTQIA2S+ Affirming Physical Health Providers” at this link. The list of Alaska physicians includes what Identity refers to as pediatric endocrinologists, or those doctors who work with youth with hormone disorders.
