Childhood Gender Dysphoria and the Law by John Whitehall, a pediatrician in
Australia, has been writing on the subject. We encourage parents to think critically about who and
where your child goes for treatment and avoid those that use the "informed consent model" or
"affirmation only" models.
The Society for Evidence Based Medicine, A Trusted Resource: Follow SEGM here:
SEGM has been following and reporting on current events, such as Sweden and Finland halting medical treatments on children with gender dysphoria and offer science based studies that safeguard children and vulnerable adults. Many activists in the media claim that therapies that did not "affirm" an individual's transgender identity (which the article refers to as "gender-identity conversion efforts / "GICE") lead to severe distress and even suicide attempts. These findings have been used to promote legislative bans on non-affirmative therapies worldwide. This is false and explained at length here.
How did we get here? Let’s start with who is funding this medical catastrophe. Jennifer Bilek has done extensive research on this. We encourage every parent to read this thoroughly. Ask your child, why would we pay thousands of dollars for you to undergo treatments to be “your true self” when you can do something else – like go outside and play, learn a craft, or take up an activity that helps you with self-esteem? Information on the money behind this movement can be found here and here. A video "FIXED" of what's happening now to our children who do not fit into society's sex stereotypes here.
