The latest report claims that the evidence for transgender medicine is ‘very low’ quality.

This could be happening in nearly any city in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada or New Zealand. Let’s just use Melbourne as a test case.

The North Western Melbourne Primary Health Network is currently running a campaign, #SpeakingUpSpeaksVolumes, which advises schools to avoid words like “mum”, “dad”, “boyfriend” and “girlfriend” to help to lower the suicide rates of LGBTQI+ young people. It also wants to bring in unisex bathrooms, non-gendered playing teams and rainbow flags to be more inclusive and make gender non-conforming young people more comfortable.

The key word here is “suicide”. The campaign’s website cites surveys which claim that “LGBTIQ+ people aged 16-27 are 5 times more likely to attempt suicide” and “Transgender people aged 18 and over are nearly 11 times more likely”.

Parents with children who believe that they have been “born into the wrong body” are bound to be horrified by these figures. They love their child and they would be devastated if they committed suicide. Anything is better. Anything.
