I am in full support of the #perth West Australian hospital #genderclinic being in review. This mess cannot be cleaned up until #safeguarding is recognised #gillick full informed consent takes place, those that raise safety concerns are heard, the #teenagebrain is recognised…
…the evidence based research is interpreted appropriately #detrans voices are heard, therapists stop being #psychoactivists rather than #psychotherapists acknowledgement of differential diagnosis & primary diagnoses are given for those with #genderdysphoria #trans #detrans
I am in support of this just as I was with the @TaviAndPort #GIDS #genderclinic #kierabell legal matter for the reasons of #safeguarding and the reasons of health professionals being #silenced for real and valid concerns. I am in full support of both Finland and Sweden’s..

I am ready to talk about the #silencing of over 25,000 psychologists in Australia with regards to the safeguarding of children. We are threatened, harassed, coerced to provide only one #therapy to children or else! They tried to force me into this I said NO. Any journalists???
I am ready to talk to journalists, lawyers, bloggers and am now writing a book on this topic/issue. I am ashamed of my colleagues and the board who wilfully ignore the immature prefrontal cortex, the autistic brain, and their own ethics and guidelines #rogd #gender #transgender
I have not been able to speak openly about this until now as I have been continually #silenced, harassed, threatened, coerced by other #psychologists #therapists, my board, governing agencies and other professionals. It’s time to reveal what is happening to clinicians worldwide

Australian Judges to now oversee #transgender #teen treatment is a positive step forward and welcomed in order to safeguard children who are unable to give full #gillick #informedconsent…
Thank you @KLBfax for your #bravery and standing up for vulnerable children who deserve #safeguarding, should have been given full #gillick informed consent and should have had their immature prefrontal cortex, as a consequence of child development, taken into consideration
This decision supports the UK, Finland, and Sweden in an international shift towards caution for #children and safest ethical medical practice. The Australian #gender clinic remains unidentified at the moment

1/n In the first thread, linked below, I looked at how the UK court case of #KieraBell began, and how it ended, and the specific issues *decided*. But that's far from all; there are issues that came up in the court case.

2/ what was the #Tavistock NHS #GIDS doing to date? The court summarizes the first part so:
§ 15 of Section A (my inserts in square brackets [ ]) below. Keep in mind this is for the UK.

In § 5, we learn children as young as 10 have been prescribed puberty-blockers by Tavistock. Image
3/ In § 22, we learn that till 2011, puberty-blockers were only prescribed to those over 16. From 2011~2014 children 12~15 were prescribed PB's, so was it 2014 or after that children as young as 10 got given them?

1/n On the #KieraBell court ruling. This is a UK High Court legal review that has been set in motion since January. Defendant: The Tavistock And Portman NHS Foundation Trust.
The NHS England also enters as "Interested Party".…
2/ One point here: the #Tavistock, & anybody who cared, have had since January to brush up their data, & their legal arguments, since January. *Plenty* of time.

It involves not just #KieraBell, but another, Mrs. A..
A good start to understanding:…
3/ So what is the #KieraBell legal review case & ruling about?
The prescribing of puberty-suppressing meds to those under the age of 18 who experience #GenderDysphoria, by the #Tavistock, through its Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS).…

Tomorrow I'll do a full thread on the #KieraBell court case judgment, and on all the issues tackled in it. Lots of very important things in there.
I know, rite? So weird to see the RE-imposition of putative gender-roles, vastly impoverished conceptually, and to see that all called liberation, necessitating radical medical & surgical treatments to be liberated. Like neo-Victoriana but with a scalpel

From the the judgement on #KieraBell case.

" The sole legal issue in the case is the circumstances in which a child or young person may be competent to give valid consent to treatment in law and the process by which consent to the treatment is obtained."
"We note here that we find it surprising that such data was not collated in previous years given the young age of the patient group, the experimental nature of the treatment and
the profound impact that it has. "

In other words, why did Tavistock not collate data for evidence?
With reference to high levels of autism.
"Again, we have found this lack of data analysis – and the apparent lack of investigation of this issue - surprising. "

A pattern emerging of lack of scientific rigour perhaps?

You might think this is only stating the obvious. It isn't; the whole court-case revolves around the fact that the obvious was not stated, and that the obvious needed stating. Consent is only valid if informed consent.
#Ethics, #MedicalEthics, #KieraBell
2/n These were the next issues. Should children be allowed to consent to procedures whose consequences they didn't understand? Should children be allowed to give consent. & those procedures carried out, without parental consent, against parental choice?
3/n Everyone has to wait till the full court judgement is available online. But from the court ruling speech:
