The transgender movement has not only sparked a massive cultural conversation that is rocking our civilization’s foundations to the very core. It has also spawned a series of new industries that are targeting the children and teens who have been swept up in what experts are now referring to as a social peer contagion. The products these industries are selling are our modern-day equivalent of Chinese foot-binding.
Last month, I wrote a column on one such burgeoning industry, specializing in the sale of so-called “packers” and “chest binders” to children and teens. “Packers,” for those of you who are blessedly unaware of the term, refers to prosthetic penises that are now being sold for (and to) young girls who have been sucked in by the transgender phenomenon and are attempting to identify as boys. There are even specially designed “packers” that are intended to allow girls to urinate standing up.
