Transgenderism has made many inroads into U.S. society, politics, and culture, but the tide is finally turning. Tennessee just passed a law banning transgender drugs and surgery for minors and prohibiting drag shows where they could be seen by children. That makes Tennessee the eighth state to restrict sex change procedures for minors. Legislation is pending in at least 25 other states. No more free ride.
Another indication the tide is turning is the spate of lawsuits being filed against transgender service providers. Everyone who is part of the Transgender Industrial Complex is in legal jeopardy, whether they realize it yet or not. The grounds for legal liability are many.
An 18-year-old detransitioner is suing the Kaiser companies for ignoring her mental health condition and putting her on sex change drugs when she was 13. Doctors performed a double mastectomy on her when she was 15. “I was 15 when you cut into my body, ripped out my breasts, and stitched me back up like I was your rag doll,” she said. “You are on the wrong side of history and will always be remembered as child butchers.” She is the victim of “ideological and profit-driven medical abuse,” her lawyers said in announcing the suit.
Doctors aren’t the only ones facing legal liability. A New York school district is being sued because a teacher tried to manipulate a 9-year-old girl into becoming transgender by calling her ‘Leo’ and using male pronouns to address her. The girl became confused and contemplated suicide. The teacher pushed transgender and gay agendas on the entire class, providing her students graphic books on these subjects, going into detail about transitioning, surgery, and hormones. The school district didn’t tell the parents anything about the child’s condition until after she had developed suicidal ideation.
Republicans in the U.S. House and Senate reintroduced a bill to allow people who received transgender drugs and surgery as minors to sue their doctors with a 30-year statute of limitations. “Unfortunately, radical doctors in the United States perform dangerous, experimental, and even sterilizing gender-transition procedures on young kids, who cannot even provide informed consent,” Senator Tom Cotton said. Consent also figures in the civil and possibly criminal investigation by state authorities of a transgender clinic in Missouri. Whether the Republicans’ bill passes or not, it is foreseeable a flood of litigation is coming. Live by social contagion, die by social contagion.
Expect to see more lawsuits arising from injuries from the administration of transgender drugs. A new study shows those taking transgender hormone treatments are significantly more prone to stroke, heart attack, and blood clots. Stroke – seven times more likely. Heart problems – six times more likely. Pulmonary embolism – five times more likely. Lawsuits for drugging and mutilating kids who can’t possibly understand the long-term ramifications of transgender treatment – getting more likely all the time.
The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) is warning about the “unknown and unknowable long-term risks” inherent in so-called “gender-affirming care” in minors. Surgery is irreversible and highly likely to cause sterilization. The best that transitioners can hope for is a “lifelong need for medical, surgical, and psychological care.” Sign me up!
A new one-sided story from the Associated Press minimizes the number of transitioners who express regret or seek to detransition. The story cites studies saying the number is small – one percent – and declining as treatment ‘improves’. But the latest studies cited are from 2021. I wonder what the numbers are now, after the Transgender Industrial Complex has gone hog wild pushing gender transitioning on confused kids without telling their parents. I would bet you will start seeing the numbers of those expressing regret and seeking to detransition grow exponentially. Moreover, the AP story cites research suggesting psychological counseling before starting treatment can reduce the chances for regret and detransitioning. But that’s the whole point of the Missouri investigation and the first lawsuit I described earlier – there was no counseling. Drugs and surgery were the default position, with no counseling and no thought given to the mental health status of the child. There will be suicides. You can bet on it. I can’t wait for the wrongful death suits to start.
