PFLAG Johns Creek strongly disagrees with this reprehensible proposal and the false claims behind it. We stand behind and support the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) policy statement on Support and Care of Transgender and Gender-Diverse Children and Adolescents. “The AAP recommends taking a “gender-affirming,” nonjudgmental approach that helps children feel safe in a society that too often marginalizes or stigmatizes those seen as different. The gender-affirming model strengthens family resiliency and takes the emphasis off heightened concerns over gender while allowing children the freedom to focus on academics, relationship-building and other typical developmental tasks.” For more information on the American Academy of Pediatrics’ (AAP) gender-affirming policy statement, visit http://bit.ly/36kQdvO. State Rep. Ehrhart quotes Atlanta-based pediatric endocrinologist, Dr. Quentin Van Meter, president of the American College of Pediatricians (ACP). The Southern Poverty Law Center has deemed the ACP an anti-LGBTQ hate group. The ACP is a completely separate and distinct organization from the AAP.
