The Truth About Transgender Medicine
As a teen, Keira transitioned to male but came to regret it. Faced with the loss of her breasts, possible infertility, atrophied genitals and a permanently deeper voice and facial hair, Keira became a claimant in a judicial review against the gender health clinic that had treated her. The case was upheld, with the court noting that it was “very doubtful” that patients aged 14 and 15 could give fully informed consent.

In this ground-breaking interview with two leading transgender doctors, they admit that some transgender healthcare has been “sloppy” and one states, “I’m worried that decisions will be made that will later be regretted by those making them.”

Another unfortunate experiment? New Zealand's Transgender Health Policy and it's Impact on Children by Jan Rivers and Jill Abigail
In this NZ research paper, Rivers and Abigail analyse the dramatic rise in the presentation of gender dysphoria and gather abundant evidence that the use of puberty blockers is neither safe nor effective.
A review by NICE – the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (UK) – concluded that the quality of evidence for puberty blockers was “very low”.
In May 2021, Sweden officially ended the practice of prescribing puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones for minors under the age of 18.

Samuels describes her experience of being blindsided by her son’s transgender announcement and concludes: “Our kids are being offered life-altering medical treatments for something with no physical symptoms or scientifically demonstrable cause…Instead of being informed, our kids, who are too young to understand long-term impacts, are being misled about their realistic options by their internet doctors.”
“I chose an irreversible change before I’d even begun to understand my sexuality...But if you explore the world by inhabiting your body as it is, perhaps you’ll find that you love it more than you thought possible.”
