A group of doctors and surgeons authored an article in a prominent medical journal advising practitioners of transgender medicalization on how to override parents who disagree with their children who self-identify as transgender.

The article, “Medically Assisted Gender Affirmation: When Children and Parents Disagree” was published in the Journal of Medical Ethics of the British Medical Journal and authored by Dr. Samuel Dubin, a plastic surgeon from the University of Michigan, along with several colleagues.

First published on Dec 31, the article discusses the subject of parent-child discord and gives priority to “the developing autonomy of transgender youth in the decision-making process” as it relates to medicalized gender-transition.

Parents who object to transgender medical experimentation when their children seek to transition are portrayed as guilty of neglect.

“Neglect, as a medico-legal term, can be used to initiate an evaluation by Child Protective Services and remove a parent as a child’s legal guardian in the most severe instances,” the authors write, stressing that the experimental medicine lowers depression and other high-risk behaviors in transgender-identifying youth.
