The American Academy of Pediatrics is a well thought of organization. Not really familiar with the American College of Pediatricians. (BTW please fix that 2nd title in your post.)

I'd like to say, though, that the use of puberty blockers is a really bad idea, and so is gender assignment surgery as it exists now.

Thank you, fixed it.

Yeah, I'm definitely not convinced on puberty blockers, though I do know a number of people who've had reassignment surgery fairly young and who credit that with their continued survival, but "Human sexuality is binary." ignores Turner's, Klinefelter, and more, and is a profoundly ignorant statement for anyone in the medical profession to make.
