While COVID restrictions reduced general US health services, sex change surgeries grew by 12%

Our public school systems are, often, a direct threat to the wellbeing of children and are actively attempting to subvert parental influence and authority. The results, for children, can be life-long.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, young women with gender dysphoria are having their breasts removed in order to present as male in record numbers. Despite access to many forms of healthcare being limited in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, sex change surgeries on both males and females rose by 12%, from 14,602 in 2019 to 16,353 in 2020. As one observer noted, these numbers do not include the surgeries, mastectomies, and trans treatments done by other medical professionals, either. 

As Zane Emma put it on Twitter:

“[O]verall US health services dropped by 1% in 2019. Non-COVID related services dropped by far more. But not mastectomies for gender dysphoria. These ‘life-saving’ procedures for self-loathing young women climbed by 15% despite the pandemic. There is a lot of money being made on the distress of young people. And the pandemic is not stopping anyone. Least of all, the surgeons, who have a lot to gain when Medicaid & commercial insurers, convinced by bad data that these procedures are medically necessary, pay for it.” 

 I’m not sure that that people are convinced by the medial efficacy so much as cowed by the politics of the trans movement. Can you imagine what would happen if a commercial insurer declined to pay? They’d immediately be targeted and accused of being party to youth suicides, and the government would likely get involved if possible.
