Whoops! No Science Behind Transgender Medical Treatments

Newly released documents from the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) show that transgender “medicine” is not evidence-based at all. We knew that but now we know that they know it too.

These files were published by journalist Michael Shellenberger in a report titled “The WPATH Files: Pseudoscientific Surgical and Hormonal Experiments on Children, Adolescents, and Vulnerable Adults.” It is a collection of leaked documents from WPATH whistleblowers.

The files were published by Environmental Progress. They reveal that “the organization does not meet the standards of evidence-based medicine, and members frequently discuss improvising treatments as they go along. Members are fully aware that children and adolescents cannot comprehend the lifelong consequences of ‘gender-affirming care,’ and in some cases, due to poor health literacy, neither can their parents.” Further, “the files provide clear evidence that doctors and therapists are aware they are offering minors life-changing treatments they cannot fully understand. WPATH members know that puberty blockers, hormones, and surgeries will cause infertility and other complications, including cancer and pelvic floor dysfunction. Yet they consider life-altering medical interventions for young patients, including vaginoplasty for a 14-year-old and hormones for a developmentally delayed 13-year-old.”
