CDC’s Guidance For Trans And Non-Binary ‘Chestfeeding’ Of Infants SLAMMED For Ignoring Risks To Babies

Written by K. Walker on July 6, 2023

The physical health of infants is being put at risk in order to prioritize the feelings of gender-confused individuals.

The “experts” are now telling us that “men” and “non-binary” individuals can have babies and “chestfeed” while transgender-identifying males can produce “breastmilk”.

The massive U.S. government “public health” blob has weighed in… and is (predictably) siding with the gender cult. You can see this by the adoption of the gender cult’s preferred term “chestfeeding” which implies that anyone can produce milk for an infant.

On Wednesday, the Daily Mail published an article on the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s new guidance for the gender-confused in the TQ+ who want to produce breastmilk. The recommendations are for both transgender-identifying men and women as well as those that identify as non-binary.

In the “Healthcare Equity” section of the CDC’s website, the government agency is normalizing men in denial that they are men and women in denial that they are women. It’s also encouraging them to feed infants milk produced through the use of medication.

US health officials were criticized today for advocating that trans women can breastfeed — without highlighting the health risks to the baby.
Several information pages on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website appear to endorse ‘chestfeeding’ — a term used to describe feeding an infant milk directly from the breast by trans and non-binary parents.
One section, titled ‘Health Equity Considerations’, claims ‘an individual does not need to have given birth to breastfeed or chestfeed.’

In the Q&A section about breast surgery, the answer to the question “Can transgender parents who have had breast surgery breastfeed or chestfeed their infants?” says that the individual may need “medication to induce lactation.”

The details on the medications used, however, was scant and has been slammed by doctors for not pointing out the known risks to the child or disclosing the lack of research on transgender-identifying males lactating.

Some doctors claim that the CDC is blurring the lines between politics and science and it’s pretty easy to see how with the language used in the guidance.

…several doctors criticized the guidance, not simply because CDC has appeared to guide biological men in how to breastfeed children, but because they claimed the CDC has failed to gauge the risks posed to children drinking milk produced by chemicals used in gender-reassignment medical operations.
In the CDC website’s section on “Health Equity Considerations” – found under its “Infant and Young Child Feeding Toolkit,” the center declared that “Transgender and nonbinary-gendered individuals may give birth and breastfeed or feed at the chest (chestfeed).”
It also stated that “The gender identity or expression of transgender individuals is different from their sex at birth,” and that, “the gender identity of nonbinary-gendered individuals does not fit neatly into either man or woman.”

Some of the doctors also take issue with the suggestion that an individual can just pop some pills and produce “milk” fails to acknowledge that breastmilk changes from shortly after birth to “mature milk” a couple of weeks later. The colostrum that newborns get from their mothers in the first few days is filled with protein, growth factors, white blood cells, and antibodies, especially Immunoglobulin A (IgA) to fight off infections.

The men taking a drug cocktail to simulate lactation do not (and cannot) produce colostrum.

What’s more, one of those medications can pass into breastmilk and can cause irregular heartbeats in a child.

Trans women can make themselves lactate by taking a combination of medicines called the Newman-Goldfarb protocol.
It was initially developed for biological women who adopted or had a child via surrogacy and wanted to breastfeed.
The method uses a combination of the contraceptive pill to boost the hormone estrogen, physical stimulation through a breast pump and domperidone medication to mimic the hormonal changes of pregnancy and birth.
Other drugs that are used include anti-sickness medicine metoclopramide, heart medication digitalis and anti-psychotic chlorpromazine and sedative medications, which are known to increase prolactin — the hormone responsible for milk production.
The combination of drugs and mechanical stimulation mimics the changes a woman’s body undergoes during the late stages of pregnancy and shortly after the birth of a child.

This is what is given to the transgender-identifying males to produce “milk.”

Yet, in 2004, the CDC advised women “Because of the possibility of serious adverse effects, FDA recommends that breastfeeding women not use domperidone to increase milk production.”

What’s a little heart condition for a child when “trans joy” is on the line, right?

Dr. Jane Orient, Executive director of the conservative Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, told The Daily Mail, “The CDC has a responsibility to talk about the health risks, but they have been derelict in doing that.”

She added that if the adults are using “all kinds” of medications off-label, “we have no idea what the long-term effects on the child will be.” Off-label use refers to using medications for a purpose that they were not approved for use.

Another M.D., Dr. Stuart Fischer, an internal medicine physician based in New York, said that it is “very hard to believe” that the breast milk produced by a transgender-identifying biological male is the same as that of a biological woman who has given birth.

He also questioned the quality of the research that the recommendations are based on.

“If it’s been tested a handful of times, how would we know the long-range effect? The short-term is one thing, but the long-term in terms of physical and mental illness,” said Fischer. “It’s an emerging field, to put it mildly.”

The gender-confused are a protected class like no other — the Leftists will willingly put children on the altar of the Neo-Gnostic gender cult and if you say it’s a bad thing, you’re the bigot.

But there’s a very dark side to this story that isn’t getting nearly enough attention — that this is a sexual fetish for some of these trans-identifying men, and enabling them to use an infant to suckle at their breast for their jollies is the sexual exploitation of a child.

Transgender-identifying males posting photos and videos of themselves feeding babies whatever that substance is that comes out of their man-boobs is a thing that’s been going happening on social media for some time.

Meet “Naomi” a trans TikTok influencer who brags about “breastfeeding” an infant.

And, yes, I can confidently say that is some substance other than breastmilk even though it comes from the nipples. Here’s a thread from a doctor explaining what we all know to be true — it is abnormal for a man to lactate.

Fearless gender-critical swimmer-turned-activist Riley Gaines spoke out about this a few days ago and called it exactly what it is — these men are using infants as props for their sexual gratification. And she brought the receipts…

Gaines also posted the photos on Twitter.

Twitter users in gender-critical circles have been posting about this for some time.

We’re supposed to believe that this dude who dresses as a woman, simulates lactation, and calls himself a “cuddly cow” isn’t acting out some sexual fetish.

We are normalizing some pretty awful things because a tiny segment of the population cannot be told “No.”

Family Guy got it right:

Men with mental illnesses and/or sexual fetishes are being elevated while children are being put at risk and women are being dehumanized and erased entirely as a category of being.

We need to stop the spread of this horrific gender ideology.

Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.

Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.

This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
