These predatory clinics train their counselors and doctors to affirm gender delusions, prescribe synthetic hormones, and allow for mass castration of youth. These clinics were practically nonexistent a decade ago. Predatory trans-activism has expanded over the past decade, pressuring psychiatrists and doctors to affirm a child’s gender dysphoria, instead of correcting the underlying issues at hand. Over 80% of gender dysphoria resolves before adulthood, but these issues take time to sort out, and require counselors who do not conform to or appease mental and spiritual issues that adolescents present to them.
The Florida Board of Medicine is taking the necessary steps to stop the unchecked trans-gendering of children. The Board voted on August 5, 2022 to block doctors from prescribing puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones to children 18 years and younger. The Board of Medicine has also blocked health care providers from billing Medicaid for gender-bending medical treatments. Florida becomes the first state to ban the predatory trans-gendering of adolescents.
One of the most common gender dysphoria "standards of care" currently used around the United States is puberty blockers. Puberty blockers do not solve the confusion; they further suppress puberty. These drugs suppress the development of breast tissue in young females and stop the development of facial hair in young males. Cross-sex hormones poison females who clearly have a hormone imbalance to begin with. Instead of correcting the imbalance, the cross-sex hormones encourage the hormonal imbalance, driving up testosterone in females. The girls are then given double mastectomies and encouraged to live as a male for life. The same is true for males with gender dysphoria. The cross-sex hormones pump young males full of synthetic estrogen, confusing them further and destroying their entire essence as a male. Some are eventually castrated before they are 18-years-old.
Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo recently spoke up about these predatory child abusing practices at a press conference at the University of Miami Health System Don Soffer Clinical Research Center. He acknowledges that there are “strong feelings about the issue” but the hastened, artificial transitioning of youth identity and anatomy represents a “substantial departure” from the “level of evidence and data surrounding the issue.” Rushing to hormonally castrate youth and affirm their confusion does not address the psychological, spiritual, emotional, and physiological issues at hand. “It is very clear that the effectiveness is completely uncertain,” Ladapo said. “I mean, maybe it is effective, but the scientific studies that have been published today do not support that.”
Trans-activism has infiltrated school curriculum. Children are taught to accept transgender perversion as normal, and are even encouraged to experiment with their own thoughts, feelings, and bodies, as if they might have been "assigned" the wrong gender at birth. Trans-activism has also infiltrated the internet, chat rooms, algorithms, pornography, etc., and slowly causes youth to question their very essence, purpose and identity, often when they are most vulnerable Some parents participate in the abuse, accepting their child’s delusions and sometimes encouraging their children to think of themselves as the opposite gender.
In Florida, when minors experience gender dysphoria, they will now receive counseling to address the underlying concerns. A pediatric endocrinologist, Dr. Quentin Van Meter, gave expert witness testimony for the state. He warned that the number of children seeking synthetic hormones and castration of their innate biology has grown astronomically in the past few years. “This is a giant experiment on United States children,” Van Meter warned the board. Van Meter said these so-called transgender affirming “treatments” have been halted in Sweden, Finland, and the United Kingdom. “They found that there was far more harm than any benefit in allowing these children to receive any kind of medical intervention,” Van Meter said.
