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.

@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: archive.is/K0d9u (3/10)
@US_FDA GnRH agonists are also being used to chemically castrate sex offenders. Experts argue that this punishment is “too cruel” due to the outrageous side effects of GnRH agonists. Why aren’t #kids being treated with the same caution? Src: archive.is/EKfEG #safeguarding (4/10)
So what do GnRH agonists (#pubertyblockers) do to kids?

They prevent puberty and the adolescent growth spurt, which means that the internal organs, brain, bones, and gonads remain undeveloped or underdeveloped. Src: archive.ph/iCOft #science #healthcare (5/10)
Studies show that girls given GnRH agonists (#pubertyblockers) end up, on average, 8 IQ points lower than their peers. Src: archive.is/dzW2g

Is it just us, or has the medical establishment found a new way to lobotomize young #lesbians? #SaveTheTomboys (6/10)
GnRHas prevent healthy kids from growing into healthy adults. Big Med claims the benefits outweigh the risks; allegedly, these drugs prevent suicide.

In reality, evidence suggests GnRH agonists INCREASE suicidal thoughts. Src: archive.is/zrIFB #suicideprevention (7/10)
Worse still, GnRH agonists are a pipeline to a lifetime of hormones and cosmetic surgery. Nearly ALL who take them go on to take wrong-sex hormones, as data from the Tavistock’s gender clinic @TaviAndPort shows. Escape is difficult. Src: archive.is/D6Kv6 (8/10)
#PubertyBlockers are the first step on a path of lifelong medicalization. Once a doctor puts a child on this path, hormones follow, then cosmetic surgeries with lifelong consequences. Src: archive.is/nIS8b #NotAPauseButton (9/10)
The bottom line: Studies consistently show that the majority of kids diagnosed with GD are likely to grow up #lesbian or #gay. The doctors prescribing them hormone blockers are like wrecking balls to the lesbian & gay communities. #BigPharma is not our friend. (10/10)

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) Image

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)

THREAD: #ConversionTherapy is still around, but in the 21st century, it’s being rebranded as progressive. Today, Lesbians United is delving into the rampant medical abuse of #lesbian and #gay youth in the US. (1/10)
The science is clear: girls who are attracted to other girls are being targeted for medicalization. This is #ConversionTherapy, plain and simple. Src: archive.is/ycDme #lesbianrights #SaveTheTomboys (2/10)
How are young lesbians being targeted? Through a DSM-V entry that treats non-conformity to stereotypes as a symptom of mental illness. Young #lesbians often fit this description. #SaveTheTomboys (3/10)

Children can’t #consent to sex. Children can’t consent to sexual experiments. Children can’t consent to sexual mutilation. #SaveTheTomboys (1/3)
The majority of children being asked to “consent” to sexual medical #abuse will grow up lesbian or gay. Homophobic medical experiments aren’t just for Nazi doctors anymore. Now, they’re #woke. (2/3)
Would you rather have a healthy #lesbian daughter, or a #BigPharma-dependent facsimile of a straight son? #SaveTheTomboys (3/3)

What is the "affirmative model?"
#healthcare #therapy #mentalhealthmatters
Let's unpack the difference between the “watchful waiting method” and the “affirmative model,” & how the “affirmative model” locks kids into confusion, distress & medicalization for life. (1/10)
“Watchful waiting” means that parents, therapists, and teachers neither affirm nor deny a child’s desire to be the opposite sex. When a girl says she wants to be a boy, the adults in the room wait to see if she’ll grow out of it on her own. #mentalhealthawareness (2/10)
“Affirmation” means that a girl who wants to be a boy is told she IS a boy. Her parents have her birth certificate changed. Her teachers call her by a boy’s name. Her peers are ordered to play along. She’s given drugs to prevent normal maturation, and told she NEEDS them. (3/10)

We need to talk about #genderdysphoria. First: what is it? Let’s ask @APAPsychiatric: archive.is/AT7Np #gendercritical #womenwontwheesht (1/9)
@APAPsychiatric It’s true that some kids experience distress or confusion over biological sex. But studies show that those feelings are likely to resolve on their own during puberty, without any interference. No diagnosis or medicalization needed. #mentalhealth (2/9)
@APAPsychiatric Up to 98% of kids who experience distress over #biosex desist naturally, depending on the study. Find the most recent study, in which 88% of subjects desisted, here: archive.is/sQi1M #healthcare #science (3/9)
