Biden Supporting American Academy of Pediatrics Teaches 9-Year-Old Girls They Can Get ‘Erections’

Fact checked
American Academy of Pediatrics declares that 9 year old girls can get erections

The far-left American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) “puberty guide” created for children ages 9-12 teaches them that girls can get erections and boys can experience menstrual cycles.

Promoted by NPR, “You-ology: A Puberty Guide for Everybody” says it aims to “take the embarrassment out of growing up.”

Infowars.com reports: One of the book’s three co-authors, Dr. Kathryn Lowe, told NPR, “We talk about how everybody is different. Breasts can come in all different shapes and sizes. We try to normalize the variety of [ways] the human body goes through puberty and how there is no one right way.”

Lowe is a pediatrician who specifically helps the AAP with “lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender health and wellness.”

Explaining how the book differs from similar literature, Lowe said, “With traditional puberty education, whether it’s in schools or in books, we talk about how girls get their periods and boys get erections. But some girls – for example, transgender girls – might not get their periods. They need to understand about erections and those changes in their bodies.”

To make the language more inclusive, the authors chose to write, “for most girls, this happens; for most boys, this happens.”

Cisgender, transgender and nonbinary child characters were also used in the book to better relate with kids who identify as those things.

“Most babies who are born with a penis grow up feeling like a boy on the inside too. That’s called being cisgender (cis- means ‘same’),” the guide tells young children. “But there are some babies born with a penis who grow up feeling like a girl on the inside. That’s called being transgender (trans- means ‘cross’ or ‘opposite’).”

One America News covered the response from parents who are upset with the book.

“This is all a radical gender ideology and sexual orientation ideology mixed into one and they’re coming right for our kids where they’re most vulnerable, in our public school systems,” American Principles Project President Terry Schilling said.
