The Society for Evidence-Based Gender Medicine reports that there have been over 300 new gender clinics for children in the United States during the past decade, primarily because of rising transgender identity rates among adolescents.
Transgender identity is becoming increasingly popular. Transgender identity is becoming more popular.
Human Rights Campaign has listed 60 pediatric Gender Clinics as part of its mapping project. The Gender Mapper estimates there are more than 200. Society for Evidence-Based Gender Medicine, however, places it at more than 300. According to some estimates, the opening of America’s first pediatric gender clinic could have occurred as early as 2007.
Many child gender clinics exist across the country, even in Republican-led cities and states. Gender Mapper states that Montana, Wyoming, and Florida have many pediatric gender clinics.
We obtained a video of Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee performing double mastectomies on minors. Shalyn Vanderbloemen identified herself as a physician’s assistant. She said that patients can be permanently sterilized at the clinic using cross-sex hormones. Children as young as 13 years old can use them.
According to The New York Times Dr. Sidhbh Galager, a Miami-based surgeon, performs 40 “top surgeries” on minors each month. While she claims that most of her patients are under 15 years old, she has performed the procedure on children as young as 13 and 14.
Kaiser Permanente Oakland, a California hospital, performed 70 “top surgeries” on teenagers aged 13-18 years in 2019. In 2013, it had only done five.
Joseph Burgo, a California-based clinical psychologist, adviser to Genspect, and a California-based clinical psychologist, said that “the number of pediatric gender clinics has risen dramatically over the past 20 years.” Dr. Shayne Taylor told her Vanderbilt University Medical Center audience how gender medicine is extremely profitable.
Burgo refers to a Taylor video boasting about the cross-sex opportunity presented to Vanderbilt Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
It is a lot.
Double-mastectomies, also known as “top surgery,” is more common for minors than any other cross-sex procedure. Numerous clinics promote the procedure to patients in their twenties. Gallagher publicly admitted to performing it on a 13-year-old and a 14-year-old who were in severe distress about their chests. Some notable institutions like Boston Children’s Hospital have provided the procedure for minors.
Dr. Karen Yokoo is a former Kaiser Permanente Oakland surgeon who spoke to the NYT about double mastectomies for teenage girls with gender-related problems.
Medical professionals and activists support child transitions. They help reduce the psychological anguish that comes with gender dysphoria, which is the feeling of incongruity between one’s gender identity and biological sex.
“I have many, many friends who are transgender. They are happy with their top surgeries, and medical transitions. Kinnon MacKinnon is a transgender woman who said she would be in the same category as before discussing de-transitioners.
Despite their serious risks, cross-sex hormones and puberty blocks are getting less attention than other gender-related surgeries. A month of puberty-blocking drugs costs around $1,200 while an implant can run from $4,500 to $18,000.
Marci, a transgender activist, and surgeon said that the blockers can cause permanent sexual dysfunction if they are taken during the first stages of puberty.
Cross-sex genital surgeries also called “bottom operations” or “bottom surgeries”, are rare procedures. However, there is no federal ban on them.
Burgo stated that the gender identity ideology of gender has been widely propagated in society, but especially in education. It was able to define trans identities as any deviation from the stereotypical gender norms. This has led to large numbers of unorthodox young men being classified as transgender,” Burgo explained to Patriot’s Daily Digest. “The World Professional Association for Transgender Health has advocated for transgender youths to be medicalized. This has fueled demand for the services the medical profession offers.
