Every thing nowadays is considered child abuse. Hell, with a good enough lawyer, keeping a child from a parent who did meth around them and left them alone in a river, at 4 years old, to smoke and get drunk, while the child almost drowned, can be considered parental alienation and child abuse.

I think calling things that clearly aren't child abuse as being such really weakens the term. I also disagree 100% with that article.

The American College of Pediatricians (ACPeds) is a socially conservative association of pediatricians and other healthcare professionals in the United States. The College was founded in 2002 by a group of pediatricians including Joseph Zanga, a past president of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), as a protest against the AAP's support for adoption by gay couples.[1][2] The group's membership has been estimated at between 60 and 200 members.[1][3] ACPeds describes itself as "a national organization of pediatricians and other healthcare professionals dedicated to the health and well-being of children... committed to fulfilling its mission by producing sound policy, based upon the best available research, to assist parents and to influence society in the endeavor of childrearing."[4]

Zanga has described ACPeds as a group "with Judeo-Christian, traditional values that is open to pediatric medical professionals of all religions who hold true to the group's core beliefs: that life begins at conception; and that the traditional family unit, headed by a different-sex couple, poses far fewer risk factors in the adoption and raising of children."[5] The organization's view on parenting is at odds with the position of the American Academy of Pediatrics, which holds that sexual orientation has no correlation with the ability to be a good parent and to raise healthy and well-adjusted children.[3][6][7] The American College of Pediatricians has been described by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a "hate group" with "a history of propagating damaging falsehoods about LGBT people".

They may be right. I thought most of you nutters hang on every word pediatricians say. Pick and choose I guess.
I don't care. My kids are adults. None of them are gay/lesbian and none of them ever expressed confusion about their genders. Pretending this confusion doesn't stem from mental illness will pass when this trend loses it thunder.
