American Girl Book Promotes Puberty Blockers to Pre-Teens
The American Girl company is facing outrage over a book that promotes transgenderism to young girls.
The American Girl company, renowned for its dolls that young girls have adored for generations, published the book titled A Smart Girl's Guide: Body Image in paperback this past February, and its contents have parents irate.
On page 38 of the book, author Mel Hammond writes that prepubescent readers' doctors may offer them "medicine" to halt puberty, as the Christian Post reports.
"If you haven't gone through puberty yet, the doctor might offer medicine to delay your body's changes, giving you more time to think about your gender identity," an excerpt from the page reads, according to the outlet.
According to an image of the page published by the New York Post, Hammond writes that "[b]eing transgender is not an illness or something to be ashamed of."
"If you're questioning your gender identity -or if you already know for sure that you're trans or nonbinary - talk with an adult you trust, like a parent or a school counselor," she continues.
"If you don't have an adult you trust, there are organizations across the country that can help you. Turn to the resources on page 95 for more information," Hammond later adds, per the Christian Post.
Daily Mail reports that it was marketed for girls aged three to eleven, but the book is advertised for ages eight to ten on Amazon and for girls ten and up on the American Girl website.
