Canada’s dangerous commitment to trans-affirming care for minors: James Pew – MLI

May 8, 2024

Resources like the federally funded “Trans-Affirming Toolkit” send the wrong message to educators – and to impressionable and vulnerable children.

Across the Western world, a reversal is unfolding. Steps are being taken to drastically limit or ban many of the radical gender-transition interventions and adjacent trans-affirming policies involving minors. These policies have permitted unnecessary surgeries, but also, prescriptions of puberty blocking drugs, dispensed to minors, sometimes within minutes of assessment by a gender specialist, and at other times, to wait-listed patients “prior to their initial appointment” (Blanchard 2022).

That gender-affirming care for minors gained acceptance in the first place, has more to do with a belief in gender identity theory, which holds that children develop a gender identity in early prepubescence, sometimes at odds with their natal sex, than it does with rigorous science (Rokach and Patel 2021).

The adoption of more cautious approaches to treating and dealing with gender non-conforming minors, including banning the controversial practice of life-altering irreversible sex reassignment surgeries, is considered much-welcomed progress by critics of the woke Critical Social Justice (CSJ) movement (Lindsay 2020).
