“As I learned through my painful experience, ‘gender affirming treatment’ is medical fraud and malpractice.”
Not to be missed!… Walt Heyer will be one of the keynote speakers at our upcoming NZ Forum on the Family 2023 (Friday June 30th at Vodafone Events Centre, Manukau).
As a little boy Walt Heyer was abused – physically, psychologically and sexually. As Walt puts it: “being cross-dressed, being disciplined with a hardwood floor plank, and being sexually molested.” Sadly, but not surprisingly, he was traumatised and left with many deep-rooted issues to confront. In adulthood Walt was married for 19 years and fathered 2 children. But in an effort to “fix himself” Walt took the advice of a therapist and underwent Gender Affirming Treatment, which involved cross-sex hormones and gender reassignment surgery. Walt then lived as a woman for 8 years before regretting and reversing his sex change. Today, Walt helps men and women struggling with transgender issues. He is an author, activist and speaker.
“A person’s sex cannot be changed. I know. I lived and identified as a woman for eight years. Hormones and surgery didn’t change my sex. I was a man before surgery, and I remained a man after surgery, illustrating the truth of God’s perfect design — two separate and distinct sexes, male and female, innate and unchangeable.”
He describes Gender Affirming Treatment as a “path to sterilisation”.
“Sperm and eggs don’t mature without going through puberty. When puberty blockers are followed by cross-sex hormones, the teen is permanently sterilized. Some refer to this as chemical castration.”
Walt opposes the “perverse practice” of teaching children (beginning in kindergarten) a disturbing curriculum that confuses children about their innate identity. “Public schools have become indoctrination centers for “gender change” and de facto satellite gender clinics that practice medicine without training, a license, or, in many cases, parental permission.”
Walt also dismisses the ‘myth’ that children will almost certainly die by suicide if denied Gender Affirming Treatment. The Child and Parental Rights Campaign gathered the scientific evidence: “There is no long-term evidence that puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones or ‘transition’ surgeries prevent suicide. On the contrary, the best long-term research shows that individuals who do go through medical transition kill themselves at a rate 19 times greater than the general population.”
