London Sex Change Clinic For Kids Shut Down And Sued By 1000 Families

Are you a child suffering from gender dysphoria and in need of puberty blocking chemicals? Well, according to the Tavistock Gender Identity Clinic in London, most little kids need them. And, they operated with impunity from 1983 until this past month. The clinic has recently been shut down by the NHS as investigations mount and public outcry grows over allegations that Tavistock was haphazardly diagnosing children with gender identity disorder even when they were normal.

With the concept of transsexuality being widely promoted by the corporate media, leftist parents, public school teachers and many western governments, it's no wonder so many children are starting to feel like they need to join the trend and signal their virtue. In general, most children want to make the adults around them happy and the pressure to conform to gender identity fads is immense.

Tavistock, the only gender and sex change clinic in Britain, went from treating around 130 child patients per year in 2010 to treating nearly 2400 in 2021. In fact, the clinic was facing overwhelming demand for services by the time it was finally shut down, and numerous proponents of sex change treatment for children argued that MORE clinics like Tavistock would soon be needed.

What changed in the past decade? Not the percentage of people born with gender dysphoria; that would be statistically impossible. The only thing that has changed is that Trans identity politics are now a fad and young people are being specifically targeted with trans propaganda.

The controversy around Tavistock deepened in 2020, when the center was taken to court by Keira Bell, a former patient, who argued she had been too young to consent to the medical treatment overseen by the GIDS that began her female-to-male transition as a teenager. Bell won her initial case but it was overturned on appeal, with the court of appeal reaffirming the principle of Gillick competence that “it was for doctors and not judges to decide on the capacity of a person under 16 to consent to medical treatment.”

In other words, it's up to the same doctors that have a political agenda and stand to make considerable money by conning children and teens into believing they are trans. These doctors, with no science whatsoever to back their claims on gender identity, are the people that get to decide if your child needs gender affirmation drugs or surgeries in the UK.

Tavistock's shut down reaffirms the growing concerns among the public about the deceptive nature of gender ideology and the fact that children with no legitimate understanding of sexuality have been mutilated chemically and physically in the name of political cultism rather than personal health. It has been recently revealed that the clinic is also facing a massive lawsuit of at least 1000 families of former patients and the list is expanding daily.

Much like abortion doctors, gender affirmation doctors seem much more preoccupied with political activism than fulfilling the principles and demands of their own profession. Beyond the temptation for such doctors to exploit unwitting and underage patients in order to make large sums of money through government grants and insurance payoffs, there is also the temptation to artificially inflate the demand for sex change services as a way to fabricate “proof” that gender politics are as pervasive as they assert.

In other words, brainwash people when they are young and they will grow up to join the cult when they are adults. It's about manufacturing a destructive political movement by manufacturing consent. Get them to commit to irreversible gender reassignment as children and maybe they will be trapped within the leftist fold for the rest of their lives. The Tavistock Clinic is now closed, but there are more of these clinics across the western world and the monstrous nature of their mission still has not been adequately addressed.

Here are the full details of what exactly the situation is .
Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust has been told to shut the clinic by spring after it was criticised in an independent review.

Instead, new regional centres will be set up to "ensure the holistic needs" of patients are fully met, the NHS said.

The trust said it supported plans for a new model due to a rise in referrals.

The changes will take place after an independent review, led by Dr Hilary Cass, said the Tavistock clinic needed to be transformed.

She said the current model of care was leaving young people "at considerable risk" of poor mental health and distress, and having one clinic was not "a safe or viable long-term option". The new centres - one based in London and the other in the north west of England - should be fully open in spring 2023 and would run in conjunction with leading children's hospitals, including Great Ormond Street and Alder Hey.

They will aim to help support young people under the age of 18 who are struggling with their gender identity, and be linked to mental health care and GP services where relevant.

There will be no immediate changes for people already under the Tavistock's care.

Keira Bell, who brought a High Court case against Tavistock challenging its use of puberty blockers, said she was pleased it was closing, adding: "Many children will be saved from going down the path that I went down."

LGBT rights group Stonewall said it was pleased the NHS was addressing "unacceptable" waiting times faced by young trans people trying to access gender-identity healthcare. The Tavistock has faced increasing pressure in recent years.

There were rising referrals and a long waiting list but at the same time some former staff were raising concerns about the way it operated.

Then, former patient Keira Bell went to court saying she had not been challenged enough about her decision at 16 to take drugs that began her transition from female to male - a decision she later regretted.

Earlier this year, Dr Cass's report said there was a lack of understanding about why the type of patients the clinic was seeing was changing, with more female to male patients and more autistic children. Dr Cass also highlighted inconclusive evidence to back some of the clinical decision making.

The clinic's imminent closure will be a source of worry for other young people wanting support with gender dysphoria. The hope is the services that replace it will be more helpful, useful and efficient.

The Tavistock clinic, named the Gender and Identity Development Service (GIDS), was launched in 1989 to help people aged 17 and under struggling with their gender identity.

But in 2020, questions about the service were raised after it was rated "inadequate" by inspectors, following concerns raised by whistleblowers and reported by BBC Newsnight.

The Cass review was commissioned in September 2020 amid the rise in demand, long waiting times for assessments and "significant external scrutiny" around GIDS' approach and capacity, the NHS said.

In an interim report earlier this year, Dr Cass said:

The service was struggling to deal with spiralling waiting lists
It was not keeping "routine and consistent" data on its patients
Health staff felt under pressure to adopt an "unquestioning affirmative approach"
Once patients are identified as having gender-related distress, other healthcare issues they had, such as being neurodivergent, "can sometimes be overlooked"
She then suggested introducing local hubs, writing that the current provider model "is not a safe or viable long-term option".

The number of people seeking the clinic's help is 20 times higher than it was a decade ago, jumping from 250 to 5,000 referrals in 2021, according to the service's statistics.

This means the average person waits two years before they are seen by a specialist.

The mother of a former Tavistock patient, who is not being named by the BBC, said there are "clear difficulties" in having one clinic to treat trans and gender-questioning people across the UK.

While her son "received excellent service from Tavistock," she said having one clinic to serve England and Wales has been failing children and their families.

She said: "It was a two-hour journey to the clinic each way, and that was easy for us. People are travelling from all over the UK for appointments, which is incredibly costly and time consuming.

"Having regional and local services that are integrated and accessible has got to be a better thing."

In the case of Keira Bell. now aged 25, she was prescribed puberty blockers aged 16, then received testosterone shots a year later, and aged 20 had a double mastectomy.

She later changed her mind over her decision to transition to male. She argued the clinic should have challenged her more over her decision to transition.

Puberty blockers, which can be used to put a pause on puberty while a young person thinks about their gender identity, were first introduced into transgender care by specialists in the Netherlands in 1988.

In Ms Bell's case, the High Court ruled under-16s lacked capacity to give informed consent to the treatment. This was later overturned by the Court of Appeal which ruled doctors could judge if under-16s could give informed consent to puberty blocker use.

Ms Bell told BBC Radio 4 World at One: "I went through a lot of distress as a teenager. Really I just needed some mental health support and therapy from everything that I've been through. There needs to be mental health support first and foremost." Dr David Bell - not related to Keira Bell - is a former consultant psychiatrist at the Tavistock NHS Foundation Trust, where he raised concerns. He said it was a "good thing" the service was closing down.

Proper funding was needed for mental health services for children and adolescents, he said.

He told the BBC: "Some children have got the double problem of living with the wrong treatment, and the original problems weren't addressed - with complex problems like trauma, depression, large instances of autism."

A Stonewall spokesperson said: "The creation of new specialist regional centres in London and Manchester next year, with more to follow, will go some way to addressing the strain experienced by having just a single, centralised service."

A spokesperson for the Tavistock said its staff had "worked tirelessly and under intense scrutiny in a difficult climate".

They added: "We are proud of them and thankful for their unrelenting patient focus and extraordinary efforts."

Dr Cass's review is ongoing, with her final report expected in 2023. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-62335665
I personally feel that it is an encouraging development that such matters pertaining to gender identity are being reevaluated. While no doubt there are those who really are suffering from gender dysphoria, there also are some, such as a number of autistic people, who simply are experiencing nonconformity to social norms, such as those related to gender roles. It's known as " androgyn theory" . If I had to self identify, I would describe myself as being agender , and I present as male. However, the SAGE Gender Test had me pegged as being a transgender woman. I imagine that a number of people might be surprised by the result they get. I'll post a link to it below, along with information on the impact of autistic neuro -divergence upon one's perception of gender , for those who might want to take it, just for fun. You might be surprised by the result you get. http://www.hemingways.org/GIDinfo/sage/test.htm https://www.spectrumnews.org/news/gender-and-sexuality-in-autism-explained/ https://www.spectrumnews.org/news/largest-study-to-date-confirms-overlap-between-autism-and-gender-diversity/
