The far left in America is enthralled by transgenderism. But, strangely enough, European countries, such as Norway, are finally realizing that transgenderism is all a fantasy, and, worse, that it is actually dangerous to children.
While America continues to push dangerous transgender procedures on kids and continue to push mutilating small children to push their political agenda, folks in Europe are starting to realize that the actual science is showing that transgenderism simply isn’t working the way leftist activists claimed that it would 20 years ago when the trans medical movement really kicked into high gear.
The latest is coming from Norway where government authorities are putting more limits on transgenderism.
Per the Washington Times:
“The knowledge base, especially research-based knowledge for gender-affirming treatment (hormonal and surgical), is deficient and the long-term effects are little known,” the UKOM, an independent government watchdog over Norway’s healthcare system, said in its report. “This is particularly true for the teenage population where the stability of their gender incongruence is also not known.”
Norway is only the latest.
Scientists in Sweden, Finland, France, and the United Kingdom have raised similar concerns, with the U.K.’s National Health Service going so far as to shut down its Tavistock Gender Clinic, the largest pediatric center of its kind, last year due to concerns that its treatments were putting gender-confused patients “at considerable risk.” Keep in mind: These are the countries in which the affirmative approach to transgender issues, known as the Dutch model, began. And it has exploded in their faces as an irreversible, devastating mistake.
In Norway, the number of gender-confused teenagers who were recommended for medical treatment surpassed 500 referrals per year from 2018 to 2021. Just 10 years prior, from 2007 to 2010, the number of consultations ranged from 50 to 70. From 1975 to 1990, that number was four, the UKOM’s report found.
Alarmingly, as the number of “gender-affirming care” consultations has increased, so too have the rates of autism, ADHD, Tourette syndrome, and other mental conditions among gender-confused patients. “The National Treatment Service has previously reported that 75% of those who are referred have a mental illness, with depression and anxiety as the most common diagnoses,” UKOM said. “A significant accumulation of various conditions was also found. About one in five of the referred individuals with gender incongruence had autism spectrum conditions, ADHD/ADD or Tourette’s. This corresponds to Swedish figures.”
Transgenderism is a social disease that grows the more government lackeys push the ideology.
But real scientists are beginning to realize that all the promises trans activists made are built on lies. Puberty blockers are not only NOT temporary, they also feature dangerous side effects with long-term use, even if the patient wants to remain transitioned.
Transition surgery does not equate to changing sexes. Indeed, those who transition from male to female find that they can never experience sexual pleasure again for the rest of their lives.
Worse for those who took the foolish surgery option, they spend the rest of their lives in pain, getting infections, and still never feeling like a woman. And it is little different for the girls who try to become boys. Their breasts are brutally ripped out, and the drugs they take destroys any chance that they can change their minds, go back to being female and have children.
Once “transitioned,” these children are ruined for life.
Real scientists know this. Only blind activists refuse to accept the truth.Commentary
