“So our first job is to get out the scientific information. You know, parents — I’m a mom. We want to do right by our parent — our children. And we want to raise them to be healthy. We want to make life as easy on them as possible,” she said. “And so what we want to make sure is that the information is out there about how destructive these practices can be. And just as you have spoken to many transgenders, I’m sure, who have been subjected to this therapy, so have I. And the impact on their lives is — is devastating.”
So now she's a mental health expert. The scariest sentence in there is "I'm a mom." What's she's NOT pointing out is that it is not "devastating," it is very helpful to many. What about gender-changing surgery? There is a high suicide rate among those who have had that done, why aren't they all worried about that? Because they're empty-headed liberals, that's why.
***Gun control push backfires. Good.
The American firearms industry is as healthy as ever, seeing an unprecedented surge that has sent production of guns soaring to more than 10.8 million manufactured in 2013 alone — double the total of just three years earlier.
The 2013 surge — the latest for which the government has figures — came in the first full year after the December 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, signaling that the push for stricter gun controls, strongly backed by President Obama, did little to chill the industry despite the passage of stricter laws in states such as New York, Maryland, Connecticut and California.
