TransKids *STOPS* Selling Fake Penises After Controversy
A website dedicated to helping children transition genders has suffered lash back after conservative news sources highlight the site selling fake penises to young girls.
“TransKids is run by Searah, who also runs a site for trans guys. For years she has helped adults find high-quality gender expression gear and after many requests from parents of younger trans kids she opened this site and store that focused more on kids and their unique needs” according to the website.
TransKids recently sold merchandise that allow kids to try out different genitalia. These prosthetic penises for girls – known as “packers”(which come in multiple sizes) – allow girls to use the bathroom standing up. For boys who would like to transition to female, there is what’s known as “clever unders” that allow boys to have a “smooth front”.
After being exposed by The Blaze for selling inappropriate products to young children, the merchandise disappeared from the website. When clicking on the previously linked products, the search results in an unknown page.
The website claims that they “are currently on a break from selling our Gender Expression Gear” but promises that the merchandise is not going away for good.
But not to worry, the site still sells the “packer holder” – which also comes in difference sizes – for when the products return to the store.
The store has a few books meant for young kids that deal with the transgender transformation. Literature like “My Dad Thinks I’m a Boy?!” and “A Girl Like Any Other” deal with how kids can talk to their parents about changing their genders. The site also indicates that a book is coming soon that helps children decide if they want to be a boy or girl.
While the entirety of the site is meant to help young kids “find high-quality gender expression gear”, it is interesting that they removed the gear for purchase after just a little backlash.
Big League Politics reached out to TransKids for a statement on why the products are on “vacation” and when they would be returning. Searah and TransKids did not respond to media inquiries.
