Victorian Labor to ban alternatives to gender experimentation on children. - Prof John Whitehall
The Labor government of Victoria is in the process of drafting legislation to ban so-called ‘conversion therapy” which it defines as ‘any practice or treatment that seeks to change, suppress or eliminate an individual’s sexual orientation or gender identity’.
IS GENDER DYSPHORIA SOCIALLY CONTAGIOUS – Prof Dianna Kenny
Although it is tempting to blame the phenomenon of social contagion on the digital age, in which people, young and old, remain symbiotically tied to their social media devices, eagerly scanning their screens for the latest news, fashion, holiday location, rave party, or dating site to assuage their “fomo” (i.e., fear of missing out), social contagion predated the advent of the cyberage, thereby placing its origins squarely in the minds of humankind, assigning social media to its role as an efficient conduit of contagion.
Key issues in decision making for gender transition treatment: Questions & Answers. – Prof Dianna Kenny
In this article, I address key issues in the transgender debate as they pertain to children and young people. These include: Are “gender transition treatments” safe, “curative” and in the child’s best interest? In considering these questions, I explore the known negative consequences of puberty suppression and cross-sex hormones, including infertility and other medical conditions and the purported increase in suicidality without treatment.
Female sport participation and gender affirmation: A collision course for medical ethics. – Prof Dianna Kenny
In 2009, South African athlete Caster Semenya won, by a margin of 20 metres from her nearest rival, the women’s 800m event at the athletics world championships. Her victory was short-lived. Allegations arose that Semenya was “really a man.” The 18-year-old from an impoverished village on the Limpopo River in South Africa became the unwitting subject of an international media outcry that included the release of her private medical details without her consent.
Gender Dysphoria Resource for Providers: Dr. William Malone
Medically, the term transgender/transsexual refers to an individual who has taken significant steps to present themselves to society as the opposite sex, in an effort to relieve severe and persistent gender dysphoria. No one is born transgender or transsexual and no serious scientist has ever made such a claim. It is not possible to be born into the “wrong” body (“boy brain” in a girl body for example).
Gender-disordered children: does inpatient treatment help? – Dr. Robert Kosky.
Abstract Treatment guide-lines for gender-disturbed children currently are unclear. This clinical report describes eight children with cross-gender behaviour who were treated in an inpatient unit for children. The short-term outcome and long-term clinical observations are provided, which indicate a generally good outcome. pressure, but the lives of children depend on their wisdom.
Sexuality and Gender - Dr. Paul McHugh
Editor’s Note: Questions related to sexuality and gender bear on some of the most intimate and personal aspects of human life. In recent years they have also vexed American politics. We offer this report — written by Dr. Lawrence S. Mayer, an epidemiologist trained in psychiatry, and Dr. Paul R. McHugh, arguably the most important American psychiatrist of the last half-century.
Family First – New Zealand. A paediatrician’s warning to New Zealand - Prof John Whitehall
An epidemic of ‘childhood gender dysphoria’ is sweeping the Western world. Having exploded from rarity less than a decade ago, there is now an exponential increase in the number of children being presented to specially created units in major children’s hospitals with the complaint ‘they have been born in the wrong body’ ..
Request for a Parliamentary Inquiry into the Social and Medical Transitioning of Children with Gender Dysphoria - Prof John Whitehall
I write to thank you for your concern about the rapidly increasing number of Australian children reported to be suffering from gender dysphoria and to express my concern at the lack of a scientific basis for the medical pathway of treatment of childhood gender dysphoria.
