Disingenuous. We put kids as young as 10 on #PubertyBlockers. There is no waiting time when rogue providers are able to prescribe cross-sex hormones with no face to face appointments. Look up Gender GP.
You are dangerously ill-informed.
Let us not draw attention to the #Eugenics angle that shows autistic people are 7 times more likely to be referred to Gender Clinics. It would be a shame if people drew the conclusion that we are sterilising autistic kids.
This does not make sense. How can you “pause” puberty if it is an irreversible intervention? Also precocious puberty is an entirely different condition. Often for girls whose onset of menses occurs in girls as young as 6. There’s much less research on the impact on males.

Part 2.Parents talk of their kids “coming out”. Check out Georgina. She embraces her “transgender” kid with alacrity. Changing name and pronouns the next day. (Doesn’t tell the Dad. Does tell the School!…

Today, we’re taking a look at the effects of artificial testosterone on the female body. #Testosterone is prescribed to healthy female children at gender clinics across the US. Its side effects include #depression, type 2 diabetes, blood clots, and high cholesterol. (1/8)
A recent scientific study found that artificial testosterone also increases females’ risk of heart attack. Src: #healthcare (2/8)
Artificial testosterone and artificial estrogen both increase the risk of metabolic syndrome (MetS) when used for “#transition.” That means higher risks for heart attack, stroke, and diabetes. Src: #health (3/8)

THREAD: Let’s talk about the HOW. How do “trans kids” #transition from healthy children to cash cows for Big Med? Let’s break down the process. (1/13)
The first step is the “affirmative model” of #therapy. When a child claims to be or wants to be the opposite sex, well-meaning parents may seek answers from a therapist. An “affirmative” therapist automatically labels the child "trans." (2/13)
It’s important to note that “affirmative” therapists don’t examine children’s #mentalhealth or question their ideas before making a decision. Instead, they “rubber-stamp” children’s psych evals. Src: (3/13)

Ever wonder what #pubertyblockers really are? They’re a class of drugs known as GnRH agonists, designed for prostate cancer and marketed for everything from endometriosis to #autism. And they have some horrifying side effects. (1/10)
The @US_FDA has received over 25,000 adverse event reports for one GnRH agonist in particular: #Lupron, now the most common drug prescribed as a “puberty blocker” in the US.

Src:; (2/10)
@US_FDA In the 2000s, Dr Mark Geier and his son David Geier used GnRH agonists as a snake-oil “cure” for #autism. The result? Kids who were chemically castrated, underdeveloped, possibly sterilized … and still #autistic. Sounds like eugenics, right? Src: (3/10)

Question of the day: What do hormone blockers, artificial hormones, and genital surgeries do for mental health? Let’s look at the scientific evidence. (1/12)
Known side effects of #pubertyblockers like Lupron incl. #depression, insomnia, and memory problems. Src: (2/12)
The Tavistock @TaviAndPort gender clinic’s own records indicate that children experience a “‘statistically significant’ increase in suicide risk after taking blockers for a year.” Src: (3/12)

Transgender Docs Warn About Gender-Affirmative Care for Youth

This is from two leading organisations who Lobby for Medical responses to Gender Dysphoria. Consciences pricked or fear of Law suits. Either way this is massive news.…
While the @Conservatives are rapidly expanding the “affirmative” care model there are signs the bubble is bursting over the pond. This care model allows teenagers to make decisions to embark on irreversible treatments. We already give 10 year olds #PubertyBlockers on the NHS! Image
I know my teenage (gay) son got access to cross sex hormones within 6 weeks of a referral to a Gender Clinic. It may not have been even a face to face appointment but, if it was, it was without any counselling. Naturally activists want to silence voices expressing concern. Image

I am trained in #developmental #psychology and #neuroscince. I have been screaming the #teenagebrain is #underreconstruction from the rooftops! Am totally ashamed of my peers who wilfully ignore this. #neuroplasticity #frontallobes #psychologists #gender #rogd #trans #detrans
The teenage brain is under reconstruction. The prefrontal cortex is not fully developed until minimum aged 25. A bit longer for males. The prefrontal cortex is largely responsible for: decision making, planning, organisation, focusing, impulsivity, aka executive functions
Managing emotions, predicting consequences of one’s choices and moderating social behaviour. This is #science #facts Anyone who says otherwise is brainwashed by #ideology Shame on any professional who ignores this #gender #trans #detrans #shame

The UK High Court rules that #PubertyBlockers for normally-timed puberty are experimental and that young gender-dysphoric people (under 16) are unlikely to be able to provide meaningful informed consent.

Read SEGM's full statement below:…
It is not yet known whether there is long-term psychological harm or benefit, whether suicide rates are increased, decreased or unchanged, and whether blockers contribute to longer-term persistence of gender dysphoria and adverse impacts on future morbidity and mortality. /2
Ethical practitioners must humbly recognize the significant uncertainties in the field of gender medicine. We hope that the Court's landmark judgement will mark the beginning of international commitment to generating quality evidence base for young people with #GenderDysphoria./3

@AdamWagner1 @OmarSalem Indeed one would have hoped a dramatic #medicalExperimentation basically castrating unhinged children using #OffLabel drugs

based on blatant lies about suicide risks& #detransitioners

would have been prohibited by medical ethics.1/ #PubertyBlockers

@AdamWagner1 @OmarSalem Not conducting proper scientific evaluation of powerful drugs used #offLabel on children is against HR .
Lying to politicians & parents by pretending an old, small, very poor scientifically study from the Netherland were definitive is an old crooky trick👇
@AdamWagner1 @OmarSalem Of note, in Sweden politicians put a stop to the blind implementation in the Law of the #transExtremismPropaganda after investigative journalism exposed the lies in particular re : #suicideThreat

In UK @deb_cohen 's work exists but judges were needed...
