I admit I know virtually nothing about this topic. But it is worthy of investigating.
Readers have shared their thoughts since Frank Report published, Is Transgenderism a Vicious Cult Targeting Children? – A Mother’s Story.
A documentary, referred by a reader, was, I admit, shocking to me. To show you how little I know about the topic, I did not even know that children, who are not old enough to vote, who cannot legally be bound by a contract, who cannot legally have sex, because they are deemed not to have minds developed enough to consent to it, who cannot legally drink alcohol, or smoke tobacco, can decide to change their gender and be given puberty blockers.
The documentary, a Swedish documentary called,Uppdrag granskningy investigates the side effects of giving children puberty blockers.
It was described as follows:
When just 11 years old, Leo began to be treated with puberty blockers, which continued for four years at Karolinska University Hospital.
Leo ended up with osteoporosis (significantly below normal bone density interval), fractures in the back, constant pain and a depressed mental state.
The documentary revealed there were an additional 12 cases in Stockholm where children had serious side effects (bone fractures, deep regret from voice changes, injuries, deteriorating mental health and significant weight gains) from puberty blockers.
Leo’s parents were not informed of the risks of the hormone blockers by the physicians and a doctor who warned parents about side effects was reported to the hospital management and silenced.
The psychiatric staff initially blamed Leo’s problems on the hormone team. The head of the hormone department claimed, in an interview, to never have seen the reports from the psychiatric team. An internal investigation seems to have started after the documentary commenced.
Astrid Lindgren’s Children’s Hospital reportedly stopped this treatment for children. Other hospitals reportedly are still providing puberty blockers to children and claim the treatments’ side effects are not concerning.
In the documentary, there is an interview of two transwomen who are perhaps in their 50s, who say that transphobic people are using “think of the children” to deprive trans people of care. The two transwomen spoke at a medical conference and told doctors about how they needed to shift the focus from potential harm to children to fighting transphobia.
The documentary includes Leo and his mother crying, and concludes with a claim that nobody knows how many children have or will develop serious side effects from puberty blockers.
Some of the comments include;
Puberty blockers is a misnomer, it would be better to call them growth stunters.
After this, so-called trans children are then flooded with dangerous levels of opposite sex hormones which their bodies are not able to manage or tolerate which puts them at greater risk of stroke, cancer, diabetes and cardio-pulmonary problems.
We should NOT be doing this to children.
