Letter to Rishi Sunak: we need a public enquiry into the influence of transgender ideology

One hundred and thirty British MPs, doctors, psychiatrists, academics and detransitioners - among them JK Rowling - have written a letter to the Prime Minister calling on him to examine the 'pervasive influence' of transgender ideology in schools and the National Health Service and to ascertain responsibility for the harm done to thousands of girls and boys

"Rishi, if you read this petition please do the right thing and urgently initiate a public enquiry. The welfare of our children depends on it.". Writing is the psychotherapist James Esses, coordinator of the declaration for biological reality and one of the signatories of a appeal to the British Prime Minister after the great scandal of the treatment of 'confused and vulnerable' children by medical professionals, made evident by the report of Hilary Cass. Among the first signatories was JK Rowling.

Lettera a Rishi Sunak: serve un'inchiesta pubblica sull'influenza dell'ideologia transgender

"

"Society is, slowly but surely, beginning to realise the horrors caused in the name of gender ideology. Children have been harmed. Women have been erased. Freedom of speech has been attacked. Reality has been undermined"wrote Esses on Daily Telegraph by submitting the appeal to the British government.

'Fortunately, the tide is starting to turn. The Secretary of State for Health, Victoria Atkins, made a historic statement before Parliament. NHS England has stopped prescribing puberty blockers. Numerous sports bodies have preserved fair competition for women. Many critics of gender identity who have suffered for speaking out have been vindicated in the courts'. Esses further explains.

Cass stated in his report that social transition should also be approached with 'extreme caution'. because "we simply do not know the long-term impacts". Dr Cass revealed that her research was hampered by the fact that clinics refused to disclose whether transgender people who had started treatment as children later changed their minds about transitioning, or continued to suffer from severe mental health problems.

After its publication, Victoria Atkins, Minister of Health, met with Amanda Pritchard, Chief Executive of NHS England, to tell her that 'only full collaboration of clinics in research is acceptable'. Public investigations can be given special powers to compel people to testify and give other forms of evidence. This means that if such an investigation is launched, clinics specialising in gender transition could be forced to provide their patients' data.

In a letter to Rishi Sunak, the petitioners stated that they were 'gravely concerned' about the physical and emotional harm that has been caused to children "in the name of gender identity ideology". They note that some schools "teach the ideology of gender identity to pupils as if it were a given, often excluding or denying biological reality' and that medical interventions on transgender children 'proved to be a serious medical scandal'.

Among the signatories are JK Rowling appear former premier Liz Truss, Miriam Cates and Danny Kruger, the leaders of the New Conservatives group in Parliament, together with 14 other MPs and colleagues from the entire political spectrum. Another supporter of the appeal is Marcus Evans, one of the governors of the Tavistock clinic who resigned and denounced how children were put at risk. And then dozens of psychiatrists, psychologists, psychotherapists, general practitioners, lawyers and academics. And there was no shortage of support from various detransitioners, that is, people who came back from transition with a mutilated body. Among these the best known is Keira Bell.

The letter explains: "Encouraging confused and vulnerable children to transition, socially or medically, even with puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones, has caused irreversible developmental problems, physiological damage (such as loss of bone density, infertility and sexual dysfunction) and significant social and relational damage. This has already had a direct and permanent impact on the child's development, the true extent of which is not yet known. "We believe that this is a serious scandal requiring a public enquiry. This should consider the extent to which state and non-state institutions have failed in their duty of care by supporting, encouraging or facilitating a 'gender-affirming transition' model for children who believe they are transgender'.

According to the petitioners, the investigation should consider 'all institutions complicit in this damage'including government departments, the National Health Service, private clinics, mental health institutions, schools and transgender NGOs.

As we wondered immediately after the publication of the report Cass: will someone pay for all this?

From Gaza to western delivery rooms, Judith Butler sees fascists everywhere
Fascists, of course, we gender-critical feminists too, 'allies of the right and the Vatican'. The Californian intellectual, renouncing all philosophical subtlety, compiles a political agenda that coincides with the platform of the university students in struggle. And he calls for an alliance between trans people, antifa, the pro-Pal movement, the homeless, black people, migrants and even women - understood as one of many minorities - to build 'a radical democracy inspired by the ideals of socialism'. An account of the Bologna leg of his triumphant European tour
Perhaps today one could speak of the 'Butler Agenda': its platform coincides perfectly with the platform of struggle of the-students throughout the West, with little certainty as to whether the chicken or the egg was born first. Certainly Judith Butler is to all intents and purposes the mother of Gender Theory to which these student(s) (a minority anyway) enthusiastically adhere; in turn these student(s) with their mobilisations are a source of inspiration for Butler, their platforms are also a [...]

Trans surgery increases suicide risk
A very recent study of 90 million patients shows that trans-operated people run a 'significantly higher risk of suicide, death, self-harm and post-traumatic stress disorder' and require psychiatric support. Thus, the completion of the long and arduous transition with 'affirmative' surgery does not ensure the achievement of the hoped-for well-being
"Gender affirmation surgery is associated with a significantly higher risk of suicide, death, suicide/self-harm and post-traumatic stress disorder than control groups in this real-world database. Since suicide is one of the most common causes of death among adolescents and middle-aged individuals, it is clear that we must work to prevent these unfortunate outcomes. This further reinforces the need for comprehensive psychiatric care in the years following surgery for [...]

Gender is a battlefield
Joe Biden in the midst of campaigning replaces the word sex with gender identity. Germany and Sweden pass new trans laws allowing self-identification (self-id): German parents will be able to decide what sex their newborn child is regardless of whether it has a penis or a vagina. Meanwhile after England also Scotland bans puberty blockers for 'non-compliant' minors. And in Spain, one year after Ley Trans came into force, 'sex changes' have increased by 400 per cent. Even some 30 bearded soldiers have declared themselves women. The lobby pushes furiously and the chaos is unspeakable
While also in Scotland, after England, 'affirmative therapy' (puberty blockers followed by hormones and surgery) will no longer be prescribed to minors, a decision taken following the publication of the sensational Cass Review, in the United States President Biden - or rather, his firmly Obamian administration - in the midst of the presidential election campaign in November has effectively abolished Title IX of the Education Amendments in force since 1972. The amendment mandated that no one on the basis of sex could be excluded from [...]

Hormone-addicted children: an in vivo trial. Who will pay for it?
Hilary Cass, the British paediatrician who produced a monumental report on 'affirmative therapy' for minors does not mince words: those children 'were used as footballs'. There has never been any evidence that puberty blockers work, that they reduce suicide risk, that they increase patients' well-being: far from it. Will those who, in the absence of scientific certainty, have inflicted these treatments, who have even persecuted so many people of goodwill determined to expose the scandal in the name of truth, go unpunished? Keira Bell, the best known detransitioner, hopes for criminal consequences
Englishwoman Keira Bell, a former patient of the Tavistock Clinic in London, is certainly the most famous of the de-transitioners. After the publication of the Cass Review she tells The Times that she would like to see criminal proceedings started so that the children treated by the clinic with puberty blockers and hormones can finally get justice. Keira is now 27, judges the treatment she was subjected to -blockers, hormones, removal of breasts- "experimental at best, destructive at worst" and believes the professionals have [...]

UK. Cass report: no more affirmative therapy for children with gender-related problems
Pediatrician Hilary Cass' final report on child transitions comes out: offering affirmative therapy was a failure. There is no evidence on the effectiveness of puberty blockers, which should never be prescribed except in rare cases. Hormones of the opposite sex should not be given before the age of 18, and even between 18 and 25 caution should be exercised. A definitive watershed
The long-awaited final report of the Cass Review, an independent review chaired by paediatrician Hilary Cass on public health services for children and young people with 'gender dysphoria', came out this morning. Its final report and recommendations were presented to NHS England. Here are the highlights. The condemnation for affirmative therapy is final, and determined by the absolute lack of evidence that puberty blockers and opposite-sex hormones bring real benefits to children suffering from 'gender incongruence [...]

Hormone therapies on children: doctors' insurances start to run away
The risk of million-dollar claims by minors undergoing irreversible treatment who regret the 'affirmative therapy' is too high: this is why some insurance companies no longer feel like covering 'gender medicine' under their policies
Those who resist the market for the transition of gender non-conforming girls and boys know very well that almost always the turning point - as was the case in the UK with Keira Bell and in the US with Chloe Cole - is the lawsuit brought by a former child-or treated-or with blockers and hormones against the doctors who administered the 'therapy': the detransitioners' side is decisive. Then the game becomes money versus money: the money collected by the gender clinics versus the money they end up [...].
