UK – New Study shows transgender youth risk massive bone density loss on treatment

According to a new study done in 2020, puberty blockers (PB) administered to 12-15-year-old gender-dysphoric youth showed massive decline in bone mineral density (BMD) when compared to peers. The study authors, which included 44 patients, are from the Gender clinic called Tavistock and Portman NHS trust in the UK. Endocrinologist Dr Michael Laidlaw criticizes the study authors for trying to downplay the seriousness of the finding and says PB will lead adolescents to a much higher risk of early osteoporosis and fractures. Another endocrinologist, Dr Will Malone, said in 2019 that the most critical time for long term bone/skeletal health is achieved in our teen years but to continuing with PB will stop the rapid increase in bone density needed during this critical time.

UK – Medical Journal choose the praise and applaud of people over science

It widely accepted medical knowledge that there exists significant differences between males and females biologically. Both respond differently to medical therapies, and a variety of neurological and psychiatric conditions demonstrate robust differences between the sexes in their incidence, symptoms, progression and response to treatment. There are also differences in the way the two sexes metabolize nutrients, and if properly studied, sex differences are the gateway to precision medicine. It is then with shock and horror that most will have to unpack the New England Journal of Medicine for it’s bizarre statement: “sex designations on birth certificates offer no clinical utility, and they can be harmful for intersex and transgender people.” The world’s most prestigious medical journal has left many professionals in disbelief.

UK – Soaring numbers in divorce among homosexual women

Women in the UK who consider themselves married to other women are separating in soaring numbers – at rates higher than divorces of heterosexual couples. One lesbian activist, Natalie Drew, runs a clinic to help women in lesbian couples conceive children, and, as she told the Daily Mail, “a third of the 586 lesbian couples she helped to have babies between 2011 and 2015 have split up.” Drew’s argument is that the ceremony and terminology of marriage, as opposed to “civil partnership,” encourages lesbian couples to adopt a traditional specialization of roles. Which means that marriage is not a good model for lesbian couples, because they lack the natural complementarity of the sexes. Same-sex couples that buy into the traditional model, are going to a struggle to adapt to a quite different psychological and biological reality. More

UK – Shocking Evidence Shows Transgender ‘Treatment’ Harms Adolescence

Shocking evidence on the medical harms done to under 16’s treated by a Gender Identity clinic in London known also as Tavistock, led a High Court judge to ban the clinic from prescribing puberty-blockers, saying that is was “very doubtful” that youngsters could give informed consent. Swedish psychiatrist Christopher Gillberg testified that the use of puberty blockers is basically “a live experiment” on vulnerable children. His evidence shows blockers can harm a child’s brain and bone development; clinics are urging gender-changing teen girls to choose sperm donors to fertilise eggs before freezing them; Children who regret treatment find themselves “locked” into new bodies; Internet sites persuade autistic children that they are transgender when they simply have identity issues. Dr Gilberts’ concern is that “we have left established evidence-based clinical practice and are using powerful life-altering medication for a vulnerable group of adolescents and children based upon a belief.”

Other doctors also testified that there was a “disproportionate number” of children across the world claiming trans identities who were in care, adopted, autistic, anorexic or had psychiatric or mental illnesses. The evidence included testimony from dozens of young women who claimed that their lives had been ruined by sex change treatments. Professor Stephen Levine, an American expert in the field of gender treatment, testified that “there was no other field of medicine where such radical interventions are offered to children with such a poor evidence base”. He also claimed that treatment was taking place in such a toxic climate where critical and cautious voices are shouted down as transphobic, hateful and engaging in conversion therapy. “Scientific requirements for establishing an intervention’s utility are well known in medicine,” he said. “Advances are undertaken through carefully controlled clinical trials. Why should gender problems be considered an exception?”. All these expert witnesses and former young people whose lives were ruined by sex change “therapies” contributed to the UK High Court’s decision to ban such treatment to be administered to minors sunder 16.

Texas – Proposed bill would amount sex transitions for minors to child abuse

Texas has filed a bill HB 68 defines child abuse to include the removal of healthy tissue, the prescription of puberty-blocking hormones, and sterilization surgeries if the procedures aim to “change or affirm a child’s perception of the child’s sex, if that perception is inconsistent with the child’s biological sex as determined by the child’s sex organs, chromosomes, and endogenous hormone profiles.” This bill is inspired after the infamous case of James Younger, a 7-year-old whose mother wanted to medically transition him against the father’s wishes, and in the end won full custody of the boy. Many studies show that 80% of gender confused children desist from wanting to transition by the time they’re 20. The UK has also banned medical & chemical transgender treatments for minors recently. Other U.S. states considering similar bills are Alabama, Indiana, Missouri, Mississippi, and New Hampshire.
