The transgender inquiry we’re not allowed to know about

READERS following the debate about appropriate treatment for children who identify as transgender may remember that in September 2018 the then Equalities Minister, Penny Mordaunt, ordered an investigation into the issue. Of particular concern was the dramatic increase in the number of girls seeking gender reassignment to become boys. Thank goodness, many of us thought, the Conservative government is taking this seriously.

When, a whole year later, nothing more had been heard, I put in an FOI request to find out the status of the investigation. As a result, as TCW reported, the Equalities Office confirmed that nothing much had happened, but that there would be action soon. Indeed, they said, they would be ‘going out to tender in the coming weeks’, and ‘the start date will be agreed through that tendering exercise but we anticipate that the work will commence this autumn’. That was September 2019.

Since then, if anything, concerns about the impact of transgenderism on teenagers have intensified. Of most interest is that a former employee of the Tavistock and Portman Gender Identity Development Service, Sue Evans, has embarked upon a legal case to challenge the approach taken with gender dysphoric teenagers. Details, as well as her fundraiser, can be found here.
