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
@jk_rowling I was puzzled by the Guardian stance on this issue, as a lifelong reader. So i had a look at their ownership Trust and made an interesting discovery. I would normally look to The Guardian for this type of digging.
@jk_rowling This is such an important conversation. I’m so glad you’re taking on the huge social censure talking about this comes with, in order to help us all speak properly about this.
If this conversation is finally able to be had, so many children and young people may be saved.
@jk_rowling You are a beacon of courage and hope. I feel concerned about the harm being done to children and wanted to tweet something about this today but didn’t quite dare to - now I do.
@jk_rowling You just made me cry.
@jk_rowling Thank you, again.
For making the time to thoroughly understand the subject.
And for speaking out.

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
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.
