Girls considered “transgender” for not liking “pink ribbons and dolls”

Girls who dislike ‘pink ribbons and wagons’ are treated as transgender by the UK’s socialized healthcare system, a whistleblower said.

Dr David Bell, former Governor of the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, said girls who behave like disliking pink ribbons and dollies are treated as transgender by the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) United.

Based in North London, the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust hosts the Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS), the UK’s only gender identity clinic for those under 18.

“The focus is on the very, very superficial surface phenomena and the lack of probing,” Dr Bell said at a conference on early onset gender dysphoria hosted by the Genspect coordination group on Sunday. “Many young people, who are unwilling or unable to… conform to gender stereotypes… are misunderstood as transgender. “

Dr Bell went on to say that the clinic’s medical interventions do not support ‘fluidity’, but rather are based on an understanding of gender with a ‘cartoonist’ quality.

“That is, if you don’t like pink ribbons and wagons, you’re not really a girl,” Dr Bell told the conference.

This lack of skeptical analysis, explained Dr Bell, means that there is “virtually no psychological examination at all” for children who are put on the path to surgery as young as 18 years old. .

This is especially important, Dr Bell told the conference, because “98% of puberty children switch from so-called puberty blockers to sex hormones. and surgery ”.

Dr Bell also expressed concern over what he described as “recruiting staff with very low levels of clinical knowledge and skills, particularly in relation to complex disorders of childhood and childhood. adolescence “, as well as the influence of” powerful politicized lobbies “, citing Sirens and Stonewall as examples.

“The staff were very scared of being called transphobic … Some staff were removed from the case because they feared the child was gay, and were told they were just chatting problems and were taken out of the case, ”Dr Bell said.

Dr Bell also explained that some parents of children with gender dysphoria, seeking to close and end their children’s difficulties, are “adamant if doubts are raised”, while others are “threatened or marginalized “if they themselves express the slightest doubt.

“Gender services tend towards a very damaging, peculiar and superficial simplification,” concluded Dr Bell, calling Tavistock a “gateway to puberty blockers” that was activated by various lobby groups.

“Alignment with affirmative lobbies, that is to say lobbies which seek to assert the desire to change gender, tending to see in it only a positive choice to be encouraged, acts as an ideological support for this simplification, ”said Dr. Bell.

The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust and GIDS have come under scrutiny in the past.

Keira Bell has taken the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust to court, claiming the ISWM service rushed her into the transition, which Ms Bell now describes as something she seriously regrets.

The case resulted in the High Court ruling that children under the age of 16 could not be given puberty blockers without first obtaining court clearance, although the ruling was overturned in September of this year.
