The lost girls
The transgender cult has wider and deeper roots than has been realised
Perhaps the most horrifying aspect of the transgender cult is the way in which the care of damaged children has turned into the abuse of damaged children.
There is ample evidence that most children who believe they are trapped in a body belonging to the wrong biological sex also tend to suffer from a range of other psychological problems, including autism, eating disorders and depression, in addition to confusion and distress over homosexual feelings.
What these children obviously need is therapeutic treatment for these disorders and help to achieve the psychological balance that has become so badly distorted. Instead, they have been subjected to often irreversible bodily alteration that leaves many if not most infinitely more damaged, both physically and psychologically.
Some American research suggests that suicide rates among children have spiked in states where they can access hormones and puberty blockers without their parents’ consent — and countless parents have been demonised as “transphobic” if they oppose such dangerous, devastating and inappropriate interventions.
By any civilised standard, this shocking betrayal by such therapists of their professional and ethical obligations to their patients — informatively discussed here, for example, by Kathleen Stock — should have resulted in their being struck off if not jailed.
Now another dimension to this horror has been identified by the feminist activist, Julie Bindel. On Unherd, she reveals a telling and important correlation — between the number of girls who have been the victims of sexual abuse in a British town, and the number of girls from that town who have been referred for transgender procedures.
This opens up a whole new can of worms.
