National Geographic Promotes Child Abuse (UPDATE)

I'll have more on this later, but no one should be surprised that a publication devoted to a Darwinian worldview would give a voice to those attempting to promote the perverse as healthy and normal. National Geographic has infamously made history by placing a nine-year-old boy dressed as a girl on its cover:

The caption reads: "The best thing about being a girls is now I don't have to pretend to be a boy." No son, you're a boy pretending to be a girl. I've not read anything beyond the cover of this foolishness, but is there any doubt that the biggest fools here are this boys parents? Ten to twenty years from now--if it even takes that long--we will almost certainly be reading of the tragic outcome of this sin, and tragically, it will be this boy who will have suffered the most. Let us pray that there are wise adults in his life who will lovingly, but firmly, tell him the truth.

Update: Dr. Michael Brown provides some excellent commentary and information on this matter (and like me, implicates National Geographic in child abuse). Some highlights:
[T]here will never be a lasting gender revolution. 
Male-female relationships form the foundation of all societies, from romance to reproduction to parenting, and without those relationships, which include the celebration of gender distinctives, no society will flourish. One does not need an advanced degree in sociology, anthropology, psychology, or human sexuality to figure this out. 
The radical LGBT activists who have declared war on gender or who have sought to demonize the “gender binary” (meaning, recognizing only two genders) have really declared war on themselves...
[I]t is irresponsible for National Geographic to put a confused 9-year-old child on the front cover of their magazine. 
It is one thing for this child – obviously with the help of others – to put out Avery Chat YouTube videos. (The description explains that Avery “was assigned male at birth, but has now transitioned into a beautiful young girl. She wanted to tell her story to let other gender non-conforming kids know it's okay to be proud of who you are.”) 
It is another thing for National Geographic to make this child into an overnight, international celebrity – to repeat, Avery is just 9-years-old – and virtually to ignore the cautionary stories of other trans-identified young people (or their parents) and the voices of other medical professionals who claim that Avery has a treatable condition...
Dr. Brown points out the regret of several high-profile youths (and their parents) who wanted to "transition" to the opposite sex:

In 2012, the Daily Mail ran this headline about Ria Cooper: “‘I was born a boy, became a girl, and now I want to be a boy again’: Britain's youngest sex swap patient to reverse her sex change treatment.” 
The article tells the sad story of Ria, who was accepted for gender-reassignment at the age of 16, began to transition at 17, but then had a change of heart at 18, “saying that she has found the changes overwhelming and that they have made her deeply unhappy.”
Three years later, the Mirror reported that “Britain's youngest transgender patient says she can't get a job ‘because of her past’.” 
Apparently, Ria (or, Rihanna) ended up transitioning to female but then began to work as a sex escort to make a living, which is now coming back to haunt her/him... 
The very fact that Ria wanted to become a woman, then decided that he was really not a woman, then ended up as a teenage prostitute, indicates how unstable this young person has been and how a system intended to help him has apparently done more harm than good...
In another tragic example:
On a similar note, is it possible that the severe depression sometimes experienced by 16-year-old Jazz Jennings, now a transgender reality TV star, indicates that Jazz has deeper issues that need to be addressed? In Jazz’s own words: “Sucks to think that I have to rely on medications to be emotionally balanced. My body is crap, and I feel it.”
And another:
Writing for Crisis Magazine on December 12, 2016, Elise Erhard notes that, “Last May, Dr. Kathleen Levinstein, a professor of social work at the University of Michigan, wrote a heartbreaking piece about her autistic daughter, a teenaged girl who became convinced that she was really a man trapped inside a woman’s body. With encouragement from transgender activists at the local organization of PFLAG (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays), the vulnerable young woman took sex-altering hormones and cut off her breasts. Dr. Levinstein now grieves the mutilation of her daughter’s body and the increased psychological confusion her daughter is experiencing as a result of the hormones.” 
Initially, Dr. Levinstein was supportive of her daughter’s actions, but her views have now changed dramatically, saying of her daughter, “She has been taken advantage of. Healthy organs were amputated…. It is a crime not just against women, but particularly against disabled women. So many of these young women who are ‘transitioning’ are also autistic.”
Dr. Brown also details the attacks on the members of the medical community who are attempting to speak truth in this new front of the LGBT agenda. The whole piece is well worth the read. Again, as I noted with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and their young daughter Shiloh, what is happening in these situations is nothing short of child abuse. Almost certainly this is not going to end well. Pray for this child and his family.
