Is it a trend? Is it a fad? Is it the result of uneducated gossip? Is it just a stupid idea gone viral in the media? Is it hysteria? Is it a plague sweeping across the globe? Is it catchy?
Transgender children being used by their parents to garner attention to themselves in hopes of receiving special consideration, treatment, profit, and a break from capitalist predation? Is it just all part of the crying game?
According to Google:
Munchausen syndrome by proxy (MSBP) is a mental health problem in which a caregiver makes up or causes an illness or injury in a person under his or her care, such as a child, an elderly adult, or a person who has a disability. Because vulnerable people are the victims, MSBP is a form of child abuse or elder abuse.
The simplest way to put the argument is this: The fight over transgender toilets for transgender children is Munchausen syndrome by proxy.
They should be arrested.
