How is this all so carried away at this point?? Like I ask myself this so often, but like ...how have we gotten here?

This is horrifying. Sorry not sorry but I won't be leaving my son alone with any healthcare provider until this bullshit trend has passed

How about mental health services like CBT and group therapy for children with eating disorders? How about asking a child WHY they want to be seen as the opposite sex. Is it because they wanna take dance classes, or play football, or just wear dresses? Why not tell this child they are perfect just the way they are and support them in exploring things like the possibility that they are gay and this is all internalized homophobia? Or that they're just gender non conforming?

What the fuck is going on here

What hospital can you find an all woman staff only? No male doctor? No male nurse? No father to manipulate and "bring on board"? Just mom? Interesting.

This is sick. It's just brainwashing siccing women on women on behalf of men. How is this not obvious??

Those videos are so fucked up. So, a teenage boy is starving himself to the point of fainting. And he claims that he's doing it because he wants to look small and feminine. And they don't bother treating the eating disorder, getting blood work to rule out a physical illness, or looking into other possible traumas (ie sexual trauma, depression, abuse, food insecurity at home, etc). They don't even get the kid a fucking sandwich or a drink of water! They just IMMEDIATELY turn to affirming this sick child's delusions and badgering his worried mother to play along as well. What the actual fuck!? THIS shit is why nobody trusts the medical establishment anymore!

I read "the children's hospital of pedophilia" ..kinda accurate

This is completely crazy. No gatekeeping at all! At the very, very least, they should tell him medical transitioning comes with serious side effects and isn't likely to make him look any more feminine than he does now. I can't believe they are training hospital workers to automatically encourage a teenager's fantasy that transition will fix everything and he will really be able to turn into a woman, not just a dude with a woman's name.

Not only that. They're being trained to ignore real problems (like a boy starving himself to the point of fainting) in favor of telling families that transition will magically solve all of the patient's problems! Like, the doctors in the video didn't even feed the starving teenager! They just started badgering his mom to approve hormones!

Yes--Jesus. This also completely ignores the fact that girls have anorexia, not just boys who want to be girls.

Kid: I don't like to eat so that I'll stay skinny and more female

Nurse: Well, that makes a lot of sense. So you're not eating because you want to look feminine and feel more feminine?

Kid: Yeah, it's kind of stupid.

Nurse: It's not stupid.

Nahhhhh, it's pretty damn stupid. My question to this fictional training video character would be "why do you think skinny equates to feminine?". But of course, that's nowhere in the script.

That's what struck me as well. This boy said, "I'm starving myself thin because that's what girls do". And the nurse is like, "YEP! That's correct! You go girl!"

Scandalous, incriminating material that proves that healthcare professionals are no longer trustworthy.
