Voltaire wrote that the Holy Roman Empire was neither holy, nor Roman, nor an empire (which is a good discussion topic when your Coffee Talk host is verklempt) and that is a great way to highlight the absurdity of some things. For example, so-called “gender-affirming care” is neither “gender-affirming” nor is it care. It’s not affirming in any way at all.
In fact, a study demonstrates and common sense and observation support, it’s harmful to kids.
Remember when Robert “Rachel” Levine said to NPR that this monstrous idea is indisputably good for children?
“There is no argument among medical professionals – pediatricians, pediatric endocrinologists, adolescent medicine physicians, adolescent psychiatrists, psychologists, etc. – about the value and the importance of gender-affirming care.”
That obvious hogwash and gaslighting was immediately disputed and called out as disinformation. Now a new study shows that in fact the opposite is the case.
The impact on future reproduction, relationships, mental health, physical health, and more are all negative, evidence shows. And while the study allows that it’s theoretically possible for someone to benefit from “gender-affirming” care, there’s no EVIDENCE of it.
You remember evidence, right, U.S. assistant secretary for health?? It’s that whole SCIENCE thing y’all are always pretending to revere but don’t.
There’s no argument about this? Do you even exist in the world? You just literally made something up, for which there is literally zero data, and ignored the actual evidence, which is comprised of an ABUNDANCE of data precisely contrary to your nonsense claims.
The study, which was conducted by the nonprofit organization Sex Matters in the United Kingdom, found that the alleged benefits of “gender-affirming care” are “no greater than a placebo effect.”
“The ‘gender-affirming’ model of care for teenagers is based on evidence that falls apart under examination,” Sex Matters says. “There is strong evidence that this medical pathway causes physical harm. It can lead to infertility and loss of future sexual function; among multiple side effects, bone health suffers.”
According to Sex Matters, these side effects might be tolerable if there were substantial mental health advantages associated with them. However, the study discovered that there are no mental health advantages.
“Perhaps there are some teenagers for whom the cost-benefit analysis works out — but we have no evidence to tell us which ones, or under what circumstances,” the group explains. “We do know that the physical impacts are significant, and the mental-health improvements minimal.”
The gender/transgender CULT in America is hurting kids. Good kids who are just going through adolescent confusion, who are being taken advantage of and abused by idiot parents and malicious, sinister activists.
And that includes the Biden administration. And CNN and MSNBC and the New York Times and … well you get the idea.
