For 24 years, the psychiatrist David Bell, former president of the British Psychoanalyc Society, he was a manager at the Tavistock Clinic, London. In 2018 he compiled a internal report which reported on the concerns of many clinic doctors about the the way the Gender Identity Development Service treated young patients, girls and boys suffering from gender dysphoria. That report cost him adisciplinary action which was followed by his resignation. Bell for the first time breaks the silence in this interview a Channel Four (you can find it subtitled here).
In the report and in the interview the psychiatrist talks about the Tavistock's very serious harm to children -40% of whom are suffering from autism spectrum disorders-. He also says that the hormone therapies implemented are a real conversion therapy practised on gay and lesbian minors. And it attributes heavy responsibilities to organisations such as Stonewall e Mermaids who use the bodies of girls and boys for their own political purposes. Bell also tells of the threats suffered. An authoritative voice that decided to break the silence.
