The evidence of the damage to children at the hands of LGBTIQA+ gender clinics is in.

All that’s needed now is for politicians to act.

Even the left-leaning Economist public affairs magazine can’t ignore what Australian politicians are.

Its June 29 edition exposed how the US-based body that writes the guidelines for so-called “gender affirmative care”, including for Australia’s child gender clinics, has been hiding scientific evidence of the harm its guidelines are doing to children.

The World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) was quick to dismiss the UK’s Cass Review which in April found children were being harmed by puberty blockers and surgery designed to make them change gender.

The Cass review led to the banning of the use on puberty blockers on children and earlier to the closure of the Tavistock child gender clinic in London.

Yet WPATH claimed everything was fine at its child gender clinics, asserting its guidelines were “based on far more systematic reviews” than that of Dr Hilary Cass.

But the Economist reports that court documents released in the US relating to a Supreme Court challenge to the ban on puberty blockers in Tennessee showed this is false.

In fact the documents show WPATH leaders “interfered with the production of systematic reviews that it had commissioned from the John Hopkins University Evidence-Based Practice Centre (EPC) in 2018”, according to the Economist.

In short, any research the EPC produced over a number of years that exposed the harms of “gender affirmation” of children was supressed.

A WPATH email revealed through the court discovery process said research must be “thoroughly scrutinised and reviewed to ensure that publication does not negatively affect the provision of transgender health care in the broadest sense.”

The author of that email was Walter Bouman, the incoming president of WPATH at the time.

He and one other coauthor of that email, according to the Economist, have been named to a World Health Organisation advisory board tasked with developing best practice for transgender medicine.

One of the leaders of Australia’s LGBTIQA+ political movement, Equality Australia’s Teddy Cook, also advises the WHO on how to treat children who are confused about their gender.

Cook is a woman who identifies as a man, has had both breasts surgically removed, dresses in kink and advocates for bestiality.

In March, leaks to the New York Post exposed WPATH leaders supporting castration of and breast removal surgery on minors.

Nothing has been done to review WPATH’s influence on Australia’s child gender clinics.

Back in the US, another of the court documents showed Rachel Levine, a man who identifies as a woman and is the Biden Administration’s Assistant Secretary for Health, succeeded in pressing WPATH to remove minimum ages for the treatment of children who are confused about their gender.

Not that WPATH would have needed any encouragement – it is run by LGBTIQA+ activists like its now president Marci Bowers, a man who identifies as a woman.

The latest scandal to hit WPATH has barely rated a media mention beyond the narrowly read Economist.

Yet Australia’s child gender clinics continue to operate with impunity and school curriculums continue to be laced with harmful LGBTIQA+ gender fluid ideology.

Even childcare centres in Australia are forced to teach it.

Whistleblowers like child psychologist Dr Jillian Spencer, of the Queensland Health child gender clinic in South Brisbane, continue to be stood down from their jobs.

There are many examples of Australians who have suffered at the hands of gender clinics, which have been caught out referring girls as young as 15 for breast removal surgery.

I recently interviewed 19-year-old Chloe Cole from California who was visiting Australia talking to politicians about her experience of having her breasts removed at 15 only to realise a year later she had made a terrible mistake.

Like rabbits caught in the rainbow headlights, our politicians continue to lack the courage to act.

But they can’t say they didn’t know.

The radical Greens, the most enthusiastic about changing children’s gender, have brought Australian politics to the place where it doesn’t matter how much evidence is brought to bear, nothing changes.

For example, the Coalition’s leader in the Senate, Simon Birmingham, is doing his best to protect the LGBTIQA+ child gender clinics by running obstruction to attempts to shine light.

He voted against Senator Pauline Hanson’s motion for an inquiry and abstained from a similar motion brought by fellow Liberal Senator Alex Antic.

If Peter Dutton’s man in the Senate is on the side of the child-mutilators, it’s no wonder the gender clinics continue on their merry way.
