"Many of [the children] are getting hormone treatment to grow facial hair for girls. Some of the girls have had their breasts surgically removed. Many of them are taking puberty-blocking drugs so that they can have -- quote -- 'successful' sex-change surgery, when they get a little older, that is," he details.
But Camenker points out that the camp and the parents who send their children to it are ignoring the fact that transgenderism is a gender-identity disorder recognized by mental health professionals who agree that what the children need is counseling.
The camp is apparently privately funded.
"The homosexual and transgender movement is fabulously wealthy," the MassResistance president notes. "They get a lot of money from corporations and wealthy donors, so they've got the money to do this kind of thing."
He thinks it is strange and disturbing that parents are altering their children's lives forever instead of getting them counseling or simply giving them time to grow out of it. Camenker concludes, "It should be illegal" and considered "child abuse."
A branch of Teich's camp is in the planning stages in California.
