Children as young as 13 are being railroaded into changing gender by overzealous NHS therapists who parents fear are misdiagnosing their young patients.
Concerned parents have spoken of their worry that clinic staff are ‘blindly accepting’ children’s claims that they were born the wrong sex and are failing to treat serious mental health conditions.
A campaign group, Transgender Trend, is now receiving pleas for help from ‘desperate’ parents every week.
One mother was stunned when a 15-year-old girl was referred to a specialist transgender clinic after a consultation of just 40 minutes. The outcry comes as:
- Doctors fear being sued after the NHS signed a ‘memorandum of understanding’ banning staff from challenging patients who believe they are born the wrong sex;
- Teenage YouTube stars who enthuse about changing sex are making being transgender ‘cool’, according to parents;
- Children being referred for transgender treatment on the NHS have surged to record numbers – there are now 50 a week.
