We Need More Trans Whistleblowers Like This One
Have you personally seen the disturbing reality of transgender treatments for children? A new whistleblower from Missouri did – and she’s saying this blatant child abuse needs to stop, now. Do No Harm hopes more whistleblowers will speak out and join the fight to protect vulnerable children.
The Missouri whistleblower’s story is powerful:
I am a 42-year-old St. Louis native, a queer woman, and politically to the left of Bernie Sanders… [It] led me to a job in 2018 as a case manager at The Washington University Transgender Center at St. Louis Children’s Hospital.
I left the clinic in November of last year because I could no longer participate in what was happening there…Instead, we are permanently harming the vulnerable patients in our care… and what is happening to them is morally and medically appalling.
She describes how quickly her colleagues recommended irreversible treatments, without any regard for counseling or even basic medical science:
Frequently, our patients declared they had disorders that no one believed they had. We had patients who said they had Tourette syndrome (but they didn’t); that they had tic disorders (but they didn’t); that they had multiple personalities (but they didn’t). The doctors privately recognized these false self-diagnoses as a manifestation of social contagion…
To begin transitioning, the girls needed a letter of support from a therapist—usually one we recommended—who they had to see only once or twice for the green light. To make it more efficient for the therapists, we offered them a template for how to write a letter in support of transition. The next stop was a single visit to the endocrinologist for a testosterone prescription.
That’s all it took.
She saw the horrifying consequences constantly:
When a female takes testosterone, the profound and permanent effects of the hormone can be seen in a matter of months. Voices drop, beards sprout, body fat is redistributed. Sexual interest explodes, aggression increases, and mood can be unpredictable. Our patients were told about some side effects, including sterility.
But after working at the center, I came to believe that teenagers are simply not capable of fully grasping what it means to make the decision to become infertile while still a minor.
