Parents in California are sending their children to the ‘Bay Area Rainbow Day Camp’ for Transgender and ‘nonbinary’ children as young as FOUR YEARS OLD – where curious ‘gender expansive’ kids can play with each other in a ‘community of peers that will provide a safe space for the exploration of gender identity and expression.’
For children 13-17, ‘camp Kickin’ It’ offers a ‘social day camp for gender non binary, questioning, genderqueer, and trans teens to explore Bay Area activities and gender identity in a safe space in a community of their peers.

The camp seems like any other. Children arrive with a packed lunch, make friendship bracelets, sing songs and get silly. But each day at check-in, campers make a nametag with their pronoun of choice. Some opt for “she” or “he” while others choose “they” or something else.
And enrollment at the camp is booming. The number of children at the San Francisco Bay area camp has tripled to about 60 youngsters, from age 4 to 12, since it opened three summers ago, with kids coming from as far away as Los Angeles, Washington, D.C. and even Africa. There is talk of opening branches of the camp across the country.
Founded by Sandra Collins, mother of a transgender 9 year old, the Rainbow Day Camp is the ultimate safe space.
“A lot of these kids have been bullied and had trauma at school. This is a world where none of that exists, and they’re in the majority,” Collins said. “That’s a new experience for kids who are used to hiding and feeling small.”
‘Gender specialists’ say the camp’s popularity reflects the increase in children coming out as transgender at young ages – a phenomenon credited to greater awareness of LGBT issues, as well as parents noticing that their kids are showing signs of ‘gender dysphoria,’ or distress about their gender.
Enabled or encouraged?
It’s tough to find widespread agreement outside of California’s ‘gender specialists’ on the topic of gender dysphoria at a young age. In a June article by three medical experts entitled “Growing Pains: Problems with Puberty Suppression in Treating Gender Dysphoria,” the authors write that allowing a child to explore transgenderism and other ‘gender fluid’ identities ‘may drive some children to persist in identifying as transgender when they might otherwise have, as they grow older, found their gender to be aligned with their sex.”
In fact, the authors posit that “the interference with normal pubertal development will influence the gender identity of the child by reducing the prospects for developing a gender identity corresponding to his or her biological sex.”
Let’s just let kids be kids?
While many would say sending kids as young as age four to a transexual summer camp is child abuse, perhaps the camp for older 13 – 17 year olds – in the throes of puberty and raging hormones – isn’t such a bad idea, especially considering the vast difference in suicide rates in supported vs. unsupported youths who later identify as their non-biologicial gender.
Studies show transgender adults have higher rates of suicide and depression than the general population. A 2016 study by the University of Washington’s TransYouth Project, published in the journal Pediatrics, found trans children who live as their preferred gender and are supported by their parents have the same mental health outcomes as other kids their age.
Meanwhile, it’s 2017 and we’re talking about transgender children. Discuss.If you enjoy the content at iBankCoin, please follow us on Twitter
Its says there are only 60 kids at this camp. There are like 60 million people in California.
Fuckin’ child abuse camp. Arrest the parents and give them a massive kick up the arse.
That’s 120 parents who should be in jail.
but, but,… but psychiatrists classify transgender as ‘Mental Disorder;’ Sex Change ‘Biologically Impossible’.
..and, and, and… paediatricians call Transgender Ideology “Child Abuse”
120 + Bill Nye. But seriously, identifying as an Apache helicopter, especially while a minor is a mental disorder and it should not be encouraged with events organized by a bunch of probable pedos. We don’t have summer-camps for psychotic children. They shouldn’t be jailed, but I still stand by the arrest + good ol’ kick up the bum.
Maybe less than 120 parents as, conceivably, some of those bitches were artificially inseminated. Likely in their 35 year. Sperm Banked
Never fear the women and queers are here. Dear dear leaders. To fuck up your kid into trannie prostitution. Welcome to California without the carne asada rape show. Those Mexicans add a whole other element. Like the Muslims.
what the hell does a 4 year old know about gender identity? Most toddlers do not have a concept of anything at that age but to play, have fun and cry when they do not get what they want. Let the toddlers be toddlers and enjoy their innocent years. They will have enough problems when they grow up with the messed up and polluted world we are leaving them with.
Surely, telling kids to explore things they have no concept off would really confuse them. Statistically how many toddlers, kids and teenagers actually made the right decisions on a daily basis? Go figure.
