Dear New York Times
I am so sorry you are getting trashed by GLAAD.
I wanted to bring your attention to an outrageous propaganda printed on the GLAAD truck, "THE SCIENCE IS SETTLED."
“The Science is Settled” is an outrageous, blatant, Orwellian lie. GLAAD’s statement could not be further away from the truth. Sweden - which pioneered both the pediatric transgender medicalization and the legalization of transgender identities - did a U-turn in 2021 abolishing pediatric trans medicalization as experimental, ineffective and ruinous.
UK toppled its #1 clinic for gender-dysphoric youth, Tavistock, after the NHS commissioned a pediatrician, Dr. Hilary Cass, to do a Systematic Evidence Review of Pediatric gender transitioning at Tavistock. There is NO consensus among all doctors on how to treat gender identity disorders in the exploding new cohort of adolescents with zero childhood gender dysphoria.
How many adolescents presenting at Tavistock with Gender Dysphoria have an autism diagnosis?
Why is the American Academy of Pediatrics REFUSING to do a Systematic Review of Evidence? Sweden, UK, Finland, and the state of Florida did it, and abolished pediatric transitioning as experimental, ineffective and harmful. Maybe because AAP’s Key Committees are captured by activists who silence the scientific debate? The activists’ voice is NOT the voice of rank-and-file pediatricians with decades of clinical practice.
France abolished transgender medicalization for minors as experimental and ineffective, as well.
Recently, the so-called DUTCH MODEL, the cornerstone of Pediatric transgender medicalization, was debunked as junk science with utterly flawed methodology and interpretation of the data. SEGM demanded “urgent attention from the medical community.”
Sweden’s groundbreaking medical research, a 30-year follow-up study on transgender individuals who had completed sex reassignment surgeries found significantly increased morbidity, mortality and 19 times higher suicidality in this cohort.
The Doctors LIE to young patients and their despondent parents when they say, “TRANSITION OR DIE.” Medically transitioning adolescents DOES NOT prevent suicide, as per Dr. Michael Biggs, an Oxford sociology professor:
Why are the detransitioners shunned, silenced and brutalized on Social Media? Because they are the “failed experiments” that do not fit in the “science is settled” narrative? Out of 100 detransitioners, less than 25% informed their doctors facilitating their transition that they had detransitioned. These are young people who have been harmed for life - mentally, physically and endocrinally. Yet, activists continue to lie that detransitioners are extremely rare.
30% of patients on wrong-hormone therapy discontinued their hormones, as discussed in this peer-reviewed medical article.
It’s clear that the SCIENCE IS NOT SETTLED.
And yet, if we look at Marketing articles, we find headlines such as “Hormone Replacement Therapy Market Size to Surpass $ 28.6 Billion by 2028”.
GM Insighs projects the Sex reassignment surgery market in 2032 to be $1.9 BILLION.
What becomes apparent is that the transgender ideology is a vast recruitment of patients from vulnerable cohorts – autistic, ADHD, mentally ill, traumatized and Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual – to become lifelong CONSUMERS of the gender industry, tethered to the techno-medical complex.
GLAAD is not fit for purpose. The 100 individuals who signed this coercive, chilling letter to the NYT, and the 1000 others who have joined in bashing the NYT have embarrassed themselves as educated leaders who don’t do their own fact-checking, but instead parrot trans activists’ propaganda such as “The Science is Settled.”
Such blatant lies and propaganda have no place in a Democratic society.
