Transgender Doctor and Psychologist Speak Out on Dangers of Puberty Blockers, Child Gender Transitions
Transgender medical personnel are coming out against the barbaric practice of drugging children in order to ready them for gender transitions.
Dr. Marci Bowers and clinical psychologist Erica Anderson were recently interviewed by Abigail Shrier, author of Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters. Bowers and Anderson are biological males who now identify as transgender females. They serve on the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH).
Bowers is speaking out against the practice of drugging children with puberty blockers in order to prepare them for their future gender transition.
Bowers said: “When you enter a field like this where there’s not a lot of published data, not a lot of studies, the field is in its infancy, you see people sometimes selling protocols like puberty blockers in a dogmatic fashion, like, ‘This is just what we do.'”
“This is typical of medicine. We zig and then we zag, and I think maybe we zigged a little too far to the left in some cases,” Bowers continued.
“I think there was naivete on the part of pediatric endocrinologists who were proponents of early (puberty) blockade thinking that just this magic can happen, that surgeons can do anything,” they added.
Additionally, Anderson said they are “not a fan” of puberty blockrs because there is not enough data with regards to the psychological effects that this drugging has on adolescent children.
“I’m not a fan of blockade… I really am not,” Bowers said. “The idea all sounded good in the very beginning. Believe me, we’re doing some magnificent surgeries on these kids, and they’re so determined, and I’m so proud of so many of them and their parents. They’ve been great. But honestly, I can’t sit here and tell you that they have better — or even as good — results. They’re not as functional. I worry about their reproductive rights later. I worry about their sexual health later and ability to find intimacy.”
Big League Politics has reported on how societal acceptance of transgenderism is causing an epidemic of officially-sanctioned medical child abuse:
“At Thursday’s Senate confirmation hearings, Sen. Rand Paul confronted Rachel Levine, a transgender doctor and Biden’s Assistant HHS Secretary nominee, asking if “she” supports minors overriding their parents on transitioning to the opposite sex.
“Do you support the government intervening to override the parents’ consent to give a child puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and/or amputation surgery of breasts and genitalia?” Paul asked. “You have said that you’re willing to accelerate the protocols for ‘street kids.’ I’m alarmed that poor kids with no parents, who are homeless and distraught—you would just go through [with] this and allow that to happen to a minor.”
Paul then brought up Keira Bell, a biological female who started transitioning to a male at 16 years old and now deeply regrets her decision. Bell recently won a court case that accused the Tavistock Centre in London of rushing her transition without proper guidance. Paul says he hoped Levine “would have compassion” for Bell.
“At 14 she went on the internet [and saw] something about transsexuals, she thought, ‘Well maybe that’s what I am.’ She ended up getting these puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, she had her breasts amputated. But here’s what ultimately she says now, and this is a very insightful decision from someone who made a mistake but was led to believe this was a good thing by the medical community.”
Paul quotes Bell as saying, “I made a brash decision as a teenager, as a lot of teenagers do, trying to find confidence and happiness. Except now the rest of my life will be negatively affected. […] Medicalized gender transitioning was a very temporary, superficial fix for a very complex identity issue.”
Paul then picks back up and repeats his concern that Levine won’t unequivocally say that minors shouldn’t be making their own decisions to amputate body parts and take cross-sex hormones.”
More people are speaking out against the excesses of the LGBT agenda. Children are being targeted by this madness that will go down as enabling some of the most horrific medical crimes in history when it is all said and done.
