Since speaking up about gender identity theory, I’ve received thousands of emails – more than I’ve ever had on a single subject. Many have come from professionals working in medicine, education and social work. All are concerned about the effects on vulnerable young people. 3/4
@jk_rowling so basically shes got a terf echo chamber now, and she thinks that makes her bigotry valid.
@nmjnb @jk_rowling @Mermaids_Gender @LGBTIQoutside @act4transhealth @SistersUncut @Genderintell Why would I support an organisation that promotes the sterilisation of gay children with experimental drugs?
@jk_rowling Give what you can & support these organisations fighting for trans and NB rights in the UK
@jk_rowling Thank you for speaking up for women. Please don't ever be silenced. We need your voice. As a mother of a teenage girl I thank you for speaking up for the next generation as well. ❤👏
The writers of this letter are just two of a growing number of whistleblowers. The bleak truth is that if and when the scandal does erupt, nobody currently cheering this movement on will be able to credibly claim ‘we couldn’t have known’. 4/4
It feels as though we’re on the brink of a medical scandal. A second paper concludes:
‘Psychiatry sits on this knife-edge: running the risk of being accused of transphobia or, alternatively, remaining silent throughout this uncontrolled experiment.’ 2/4
‘NHS identity clinics have been functioning as if acting outside the ordinary requirement of good medical and psychiatric practice.’
Some may dismiss this paper by experienced psychoanalyst @marcusevanspsych, but they do so at their own peril.
