Wednesday’s Pride Night at the Detroit Tigers’ Comerica Park could be a disastrously memorable event for young people, as the American League baseball team will collect money that night for radical LGBT groups that advocate for irreversible “gender transition” surgery.  

Some states have outlawed child sex surgery for obvious reasons. Research suggests that as many as one in five people who have undergone such procedures regret what they did, with one University of Birmingham study finding "no robust scientific evidence that gender reassignment surgery is clinically effective" and that "Research from the U.S. and Holland suggests that up to a fifth of patients regret changing sex."

Jaime Masters, commissioner of the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services has said, “Genital mutilation of a child through reassignment surgery is child abuse, subject to all rules and procedures pertaining to child abuse.” 

But these future regrets of what children have done in their formative years will rest squarely on the Detroit Tigers as well as the dangerous groups to which they’re funneling money, and there is no other way to describe this as anything other than unconscionable and detestable.

Come Wednesday, the Tigers will host a special “Pride Night” game to “celebrate our Pride community partners, friends, and families” at Comerica Park. Previous Detroit pride nights celebrated the Supreme Court’s legalization of same-sex marriage and destruction of the Defense of Marriage Act.

This week’s event will be downright destructive for the very recipients of this funding. 

National Review reports that this year the Tigers are offering people a chance to support groups that are “actively promoting transgender identification — or even medical transitions — for children.” 

The Ruth Ellis Center will benefit from the Tigers’ pride event. It provides “transition care for transgender youth," including “gender affirming surgery” for children. The Ruth Ellis Center also sponsors “a propaganda campaign attempting to make it easier for children to go through transition surgery,” the National Review reports. Ellis also seeks to help children overcome “huge” barriers for gender transition. 

The Trans Justice Funding Project runs the Trans Sistas of Color Project, which focuses on “groups centering the leadership of trans people organizing around their experiences with racism, economic injustice, transmisogyny, ableism, immigration, incarceration, and other intersecting oppressions.” This notorious organization will use money from Tigers’ gate receipts to assist people with funding for chest reconstruction and/or genital reassignment surgery. It is affiliated with groups like “Trans Minor Rights,” which “advocates for empowering transgender youth to make their own decisions regarding puberty blockers.” 

Fair Michigan, an advocacy group “exclusively dedicated to writing sexual orientation and gender identity into Michigan civil-rights law,” will also benefit from Tigers’ ticket sales. So will Corktown Health, an LGBTQ- focused primary health care center” that provides hormone therapy for gender transitions.  

According to the National Review, these are radical and experimental procedures. Sweden and other countries have halted hormonal interventions for minors with gender dysphoria.  

PFLAG is another organization that will use Tigers’ money to corrupt children’s minds, as the group promotes the myth of multiple genders. Additionally, PFLAG sponsors a “Public Library Project” that “is dedicated to donating Gay, Lesbian, Bi-sexual, and Transgender-positive books to public libraries for a greater understanding of the real lives of our children.” 

So, Tigers fans, are you aware of the unintended consequences your ticket purchases for Wednesday’s game will entail? Fan participation in this amoral event could have dire long-lasting implications for children who grow up to regret “gender affirming” surgeries.
