Well, this is just ridiculous.
Psychiatrist and former talk show host Dr. Keith Ablow recently suggested that if children watched Chaz Bono on Dancing With The Stars, they could possibly develop GID (Gender Identity Disorder).
While the rest of us have realized that this notion is pretty ludicrous, the American Psychiatric Association had to respond to these claims saying:
"There is no evidence that viewing a television game show with a transgender contestant would induce Gender Identity Disorder in young people."
Since medical doctors have said that children experience GID at a very young age since it something that has "always been there," we doubt very much that watching a transgendered man dance on television would have any sort of an effect on children.
You are very, very WRONG, Dr. Ablow.
