Communist Owned Media Tik Tok Targeting Children to Perform Trans Butchery
(PA Editor: PARENTS) have accused TikTok of helping children to be 'brainwashed' by hosting viral social-media videos that promote changing sex as 'cool'.
Material posted by transgender influencers on the social networking service - in which they provide advice on transitioning and accessing hormone therapies - has been seen by millions of young viewers.
Some parents are concerned the involvement of TikTok, which became the UK's most downloaded app last year, is fuelling a 'social contagion' of pressure on impressionable youngsters and the rise in teenagers who are identifying as trans.
More than a quarter of British TikTok users are aged between 15 and 25, and children aged between four and 15 who sign up spend an average of 69 minutes on the app each day, according to TikTok's own data.
Analysis by The Mail on Sunday shows that videos with the hashtag #Trans have been seen more than 26 billion times.
TikTok signed a partnership earlier this year with Stonewall, the controversial lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights charity, to promote this material.
Another video begins with the words 'I used to be a good Christian kid' before showing the transformation to a 'trans, gay atheist who loves tattoos and chaos'.
Last night, Kate Harris, of the LGB Alliance, which opposes Stonewall's policies on transgender issues, said: 'Our major concern is that millions of impressionable children are watching these online influencers.
'It's no coincidence that the growth of TikTok coincides exactly with the exponential growth of children presenting with gender dysphoria.'
Ms Harris described some of the videos as 'deeply frightening', adding: 'The message is so often, "Don't involve your parents."
'What these videos would lead a generation of children to believe is that it is easy to change sex and that it is the answer to all of your problems.''
