You know things are getting bad with the transgender militant brigade when they begin to alienate key American allies.
Not such a great idea when geopolitical tension is at an all-time high, especially with Biden making absurdly irresponsible proclamations, such as the world being supposedly on the brink of nuclear disaster.
Given that the Biden regime is also intent on promoting as many “gender reassignment” surgeries as possible for adolescents, some of whom may be as young as 12 (if not younger), then it is little surprise that Europe, alongside the United Kingdom, are evaluating the current trends in the United States with deep caution … and suspicion.
As reported by Fox News, Leor Sapir, a fellow who studies transgender care, has detailed the ways in which the United States has rapidly become “an outlier” in terms of promoting potentially irreversible surgery on minors.
“These countries have done systematic reviews of evidence. They’ve found that the studies cited to support these medical interventions are too unreliable, and the risks are too serious,” Sapir remarked crisply.
Curiously, several European journals also published articles expressing doubts regarding the efficacy of masks, but those articles were, of course, labeled as “disinformation” by Marxist lieutenants like Dr. Fauci.
Representative Dan Crenshaw is certainly pleased with Europe getting a clue, which is evident in his commentary on how “beneficial” Europe’s stance is, especially relative to the raging Democrats.
“It’s beneficial to see European countries coming to their senses,” Crenshaw remarked, adding that transgender militantism, namely for children, “is the issue of our time,” as well as “a hill we’re going to die on.”
Indeed, as detailed by the New York Post, American Academy of Pediatrics has officially embraced an apparent “affirm-only/affirm-early policy” since 2018.
“Affirm early” = Indoctrinate early.
“Our review of 11 of the most progressive Western and Northern European countries shows they almost entirely restrict cross-sex hormones until age 16, once again following psychotherapy sessions. American children can receive cross-sex hormones at 13 (younger in clinical trials),” the Post reported.
In other words, Europeans don’t want their children arbitrarily changing their gender like they change their favorite music artist.
“Finally, there are ‘gender affirmative’ surgeries – the most aggressive and invasive procedures. Every Western and Northern European country we surveyed except one bans surgery until age 16 or, more commonly, 18. America has documented cases of minors as young as 12 receiving surgeries,” the publication continued.
Another disturbing distinction between the U.S. and E.U., and quite startling, considering that Europeans have been notoriously more liberal than Americans. Until recently.
“Why are children in Stockholm protected from these procedures, yet children in Boston are not?” the Postmulled.
Perhaps because the Swedish system isn’t keen on advocating the mutilation of confused minors.
Indeed, the United Kingdom has taken a direct stance on so-called “gender affirmation,” made abundantly clear on the official National Health Services (NHS) website.
In a June 2023 update, the NHS blatantly declared the opposite of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
“We are now going out to targeted stakeholder testing on an interim clinical commissioning policy proposing that, outside of a research setting, puberty suppressing hormones should not be routinely commissioned for children and adolescents who have gender incongruence/dysphoria,” the NHS declared.
Furthermore, also unlike the American counterpart, the NHS cited actual facts to support their position.
“In 2021/22 there were over 5,000 referrals into the Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS) run by the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust. This compares to just under 250 referrals in 2011/12 …
Additionally, a significant number of children are also presenting with neurodiversity and other mental health needs and risky behaviours which requires careful consideration and needs to be better understood,” the NHS added coolly.
In other words, transgenderism is (surprise, surprise) linked to a host of other “mental health needs.”
Talk therapy, not hormone therapy, has a higher chance of resolving those issues.
And, as the update from NHS was as of this month, it seems fairly clear that the health agency is uninterested in any further influence from the teen-targeting, transgender mob in the United States.
