The relentless promotion of transgenderism and “gender fluidity” to innocent children may be starting to face a backlash. There have been several recent articles about young people who underwent painful, disfiguring “gender confirmation” surgery, only to later realize that it was a horrible mistake and they actually just had emotional issues that should’ve been treated with counseling – an obvious truth that you can now be banished from society for voicing. But now, one of those victims is seeking legal redress.
British teen Keira Bell is suing the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, parent of the National Health Service’s Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS.) GIDS has become infamous for over over-diagnosing “gender dysphoria,” with cases leaping from a few dozen to over 2,000 in ten years. At least 35 psychologists have resigned from it in the past three years in protest that young people are being “over-diagnosed and over-medicalized,” such as being given dangerous hormone treatments, but they’re afraid to resist for fear of being branded “transphobic.”
(May I just add: “Government health care, ladies and gentlemen!”)
Ms. Bell claims that she was rushed into gender reassignment treatments after just three short sessions that did nothing to uncover the fact that her “gender identity crisis” was really a coping mechanism for deeper issues. She suffered serious health effects that left her feeling drained, depressed and suicidal. She said her body went into a menopause-like state and “shut down,” and “There’s no going back from it.”
I wish her the best with her lawsuit, and I hope it turns into a class action suit that forces an end to this madness perpetrated on our children. Today’s true epidemic of “dysphoria” is not children who look in a mirror and see the opposite sex, it’s politicized health officials who look at a child and see a guinea pig.
