The The American Academy of Pediatrics is advising doctors to put up posters of same-sex couples and rainbow decals in their waiting rooms, and asking young gay patients questions like, “Tell me about your partner.”
It’s all part of the organization’s bold new initiative to stamp out “heterosexism,” a kinder word for homophobia. In a policy statement and report the AAP published Monday in its flagship journal, Pediatrics, the group warned its doctors against “homophobia” and “heterosexism.”
“Sexual-minority youth should not be considered abnormal,” the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) said in its new materials on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youths. The AAP represents 60 thousand pediatricians across the nation.
