Laidlaw’s second link is to the “right leaning American College of Pediatricians.” This is not an organization of medical professionals, as the anodyne name would suggest, but an anti-LGBT advocacy group originally founded to fight against gay couple’s right to adopt children. They have gleefully waded into the transgender debate because, well, why not?
Yes, I’ve run into situations quite frequently where people cite this organization. Very important to point out they are not actually the professional accrediting society people take them for.
The real organization is The American Academy of Pediatrics, which takes an altogether different, more supportive and and affirming stand on trans issues.
