We now live in a world where people are crocheting fake penises for CHILDREN to wear in their pants so that little girls can pretend to be little boys.
Transgender crafter Bethany Amborn is now advertising prosthetic "penises" for "trans and non-binary" kids. Amborn describes the the "Bitty Bug Soft Packer" as being for children, and the "Lil' Bug Soft Packer" for "trans and non-binary folks, or as an anatomical model."
The "Lil' Bug Soft Packer" comes in sizes S, L, and XL.
The entire purpose of a prosthetic penises is if a trans identified female has some sort of genital anxiety, they can wear it to alleviate that dysphoria.
WHY would a very small, diaper wearing child have any concerns, anxieties, or even *awareness* of their genitals?????

Amborn’s Stitchbug Studio site, does have a disclaimer though:
NOTE TO OUR CUSTOMERS: This product is not for infants or very young children. There has been some confusion for those who are not aware of what some trans youths go through and how prosthetics can help their experience. Thank you to the parents out there who support your trans youngsters, and we are honored to be a small part of their process.
Amborn explained that this all began when she was "looking for a pattern to make a soft packer for myself."
“[A]fter being frustrated by the cost and discomfort of silicone options, I tried the free patterns I could find, and posted some photos in a large LGBTQ+ sewing group,” Amborn said. "Immediately I had 2 parents ask me please, could you make one for my little son? After hearing from a mother who was just crying with her son, unsure what to do to ease his pain of dysphoria and there being no options available for children, the very first packers I made were for 10 and 6 year old little boys."
She continued, "Silicone packers are expensive, heavy, and can get hot, sticky and uncomfortable. Unless worn with a strap, they weigh down clothing and don’t stay put. They have to be powdered and cared for carefully, and even then only last about 6 months with daily wear. They come in limited sizes and colors, and there are none available for children."
“The resulting design, is functional, comfortable, visually excellent, and most importantly, FEELS great,” Amborn added. “I love the presence it has when I wear it, and for many folks this is the most important part of addressing dysphoria.”
Am I the only person that finds it disturbing that someone would buy their child a fake penis? It's weird enough that adults are doing it, but children??
Come on, be better parents. The bar is on the ground...it's really not hard to do better.
