Medical Student Observes "Transgender Care" and Has Observations -- and Questions

Someone identifying herself as "a woman" and a third-year medical student talks about her experiences observing how "transgender care" is actually delivered in a hospital.

She writes under a pseudonym, so people can doubt this, but of course she must -- you're not allowed to doubt "transgender care." Science no longer permits questioning, you know. Science now consists of only the complete affirmation of what confused 14-year-old girls tell you is true.

There's a lot of money in bottom surgery, you know.

I'm a medical student, and spent a day in the Adolescent Medicine clinic on Gender Care day.

This was to my surprise, but of course, I have a lot of opinions & many questions on this topic. So let's dive into the observations & answers I received from the Providers....

First 30 minutes in the office:

It was by-far the wokest of all environments in my rotations so far. The PA acted as the mask police, scolding me for taking it down to have "too long" of a sip of water. Openly mocked trump & their supporters TO PATIENTS IN THE EXAMINATION ROOM.

To be clear, I am no fan of the orange man. But I hate practically everyone in politics, so let's leave it there.

Observation #1:
1st patient was a 13 y.o. female to male transitioner. During the chart review, it was reported that BOTH of their older siblings are also transgender.

*Fascinating*, I thought. [Thinky face emoji]

I think this finding speaks for itself. Let's move on.

Same patient, during chart review, noted the 1st therapist they saw did NOT think this patient had gender dysphoria

They sought out a new therapist who might give them the answer they want to hear. Of course, this new therapist did give them the diagnosis & the coveted "Letter."

I know from Libs of TikTok that transitioning now requires only a letter from a single therapist agreeing that you are transgender, and that these letters are extremely easy to get. You can shop therapists to get them, and people online offer to just write you one, sight unseen.

They were not interested in school, eating healthy foods (lives off poptarts & pepsi), & blames Mom for their anxiety (despite her bending to this patient's every whim) & openly disrespected her. They don't do any virtual school work because "the teachers suck at teaching."

In this example, I noticed a pattern of chronic victimization. Everything is someone else's fault. There is practically NO accountability for literally anything, including what they choose to put in their bodies for nourishment.

Another observation is that EVERY. SINGLE. Trans patient had multiple mental health comorbidities including:

- Depression
- Anxiety
- ADHD
- Autistic Features
- Oppositional defiant disorder

And EVERY single one was on an SSRI at least. FEW were regularly seeing a therapist.

Quick testimonial: When I had panic disorder, I would have tried any drug to cure it. When you are suffering with a debilitating problem, you will do anything someone tells you will help.

A friend of mine was taking Xanax at the time for depression. He said it really worked. I went out and got a prescription for Xanax. I was so excited to take it.

Of course, it did not work, because I wasn't depressed. I had panic. (I didn't know what to call it; I called it anxiety, and I think Xanax is sometimes prescribed for anxiety as well.)

Later, when I read Jay Mohr's autobiography and realized that I had panic and that the cure was klonopin, I got so happy I was floating on air. (Klonopin did work. It worked well enough that I went off of it after a few years.)

My point is, if someone with anxiety, depression, ADHD, etc., cannot find relief for these symptoms, but they are told by online influencers that everything they're feeling is caused by "gender dysphoria" and that if they just take hormone blockers and get their breasts chopped off everything will get better, plus they'll be part of an exciting subgroup that everyone pays attention to because if they don't they're bigots -- and if they're touched in the head enough that this sounds plausible to them -- a lot of people are going to buy into the "cure."

How someone afflicted with autism, feeling socially isolated, might respond to these claims that "everything will be better if you join our group," I can only guess.

The media routinely notes that people, especially young girls, are being convinced they have several "fashionable" mental illnesses, including Tourette's, OCD, and DID (multiple personality disorder). The girls see TikTok influencers who have these disorders -- or, rather, pretend to have these disorders -- and want to emulate them, because they want to be famous too.

The media documents all this. They warn that mental illness is being spread virally among young people, especially among young girls, because mental illness is being made to be seen as "cool" and an easy way to TikTok fame and Instagram celebrity.

But the media refuses to note that the mental illness of transgenderism is being spread virally on social media for the same exact reasons, because they're being bullied by the extremist Trans Lobby into pretending that transgenderism is the one mental illness that is never spread virally by teenagers just aping what they see on TikTok and Insta. No, this is the one mental illness that is always organic and real.

Because the Trans Extremists say so, and you'll lose your job if you contradict them.


All but 1 remained high scoring on the PHQ-9 [Patient Health Questionaire], still reported su!cidality/depression symptoms despite their transition and meds. All of them seemingly enjoyed the control they had over the provider & parents.

Ding ding ding ding ding ding ding

ding ding ding ding ding ding

a-ding-ding-ding-ding-ding-DING...

With all other mental disorders, you are told that you will have to go through a difficult process of confronting your disorder and strengthening yourself to overcoming it. Aversion therapy, for example. Cognitive behavioral therapy.

If you have delusions, you will be told, either subtly or directly, that these delusions are false.

But if you claim you are transgender, everyone will "validate" and "affirm" whatever you say! They will swear that all of your delusions are real!

Now, given the choice between "low-rent," unpopular, non-status-conferring mental illnesses like anxiety, depression, ADHD, and schizophrenia, or the super-popular, trendy, status-conferring Instagram-Friendly Transgenderism, which also allows you to boss around your parents, your teachers, and all of your doctors -- Gee, which one would you choose?

I'm going to repeat part of the last post, to make this flow better:

All but 1 remained high scoring on the PHQ-9 [Patient Health Questionaire], still reported su!cidality/depression symptoms despite their transition and meds.

I thought changing your gender was supposed to fix all of that?

On to the Provider questions:
Q: What are the age limits for "affirming care?"
Luckily, in my state, they only do puberty blockers at tanner stage 2 WITH parental consent. Cross sex hormones at 16 WITH parental consent. And top surgery at 18.

Q: How do we explain the multiple mental health comorbidities in these pts?
A: We're still not sure if it is causation, or correlation, but still see improvement after social transition.

I did not follow up with my observation of persistent high PHQ-9 scores, convo was flowing!

Q: Do we have to have a Gender Dysphoria diagnosis to purse medications?
A: No. We encourage it, but do not require it. But we do require a therapist visit at least once and parental consent.

*Cringes internally*

Q: So if that's the case, how do we know who genuinely is trans, and who is in a phase/influenced by peers?
A: There is a bit of a social component. But that is largely because society is evolving and gender is much more fluid these days.

"A bit" of a social component. But society just suddenly became sexually fluid all of as sudden, after one million years.

Fair. But....

Q: It's odd to me how in 2022 we are trying to get away from gender stereotypes, but simultaneously enforcing these sterotypes by suggesting boys who like girl things might actually be a girl.. instead of a BOY who likes dress & dolls.
A: Yes, many of these kids might just be gay

Q: If that's the case, then what might be the repercussions to transition children who might not be trans?
A: Well, what we do here in the under 18's is totally reversible (Lupron).

Yeah that's completely false.

Q: How many patients have you seen on Lupron, who decide to stop & start puberty at a later age?

A: I have not seen any patients attempt to "detransition" just yet. In fact, we see higher rates of detransitioners among those who transitioned later in life compared to those who did so at a younger age.

Q: Interesting! Is it possible that because these kids have been socially conditioned to align with the other gender that is who they've become now? Because they don't know any other way?
A: It's definitely possible. We don't have the data for that just yet.

What I've learned:
- These kids are mentally suffering on a massive scale.
- All of them (literally) have multiple mental health problems
- Most of their parents have no disciplinary principles and let their kid talk to them disrespectfully
- All (but 1) of them were white

White kids attempting to boost themselves up out of the "most disfavored social category" by giving themselves a sexuality that's higher on the Victimology Pyramid.

Constantly telling white children that they are shit does have an effect. White adults get angry -- but white children get depressed.

- There is far too little emphasis on mental health care and support. Medications aren't it. Addressing the family/home life/past traumas IS IT.

I believe a lack of attention to our collective well-being's is why we have all this mess to begin with.


Related: Here is a training video from a Philadelphia hospital. It teaches staff to immediately jump to a diagnosis of gender dysphoria. Then, in the fourth video, it teaches staff to immediately begin pressuring and arm-twisting a parent to "affirm" the gender transition that was just decided on ten minutes ago.

Note this is a staged film, but it's a training film -- this is the model of how the hospital is telling staff that "gender conversations" and gender pressure-sessions with parents should go.

Also note that the actual physical complaint of the boy -- that he has an eating issue -- is blown right off so that they can get to the Trendy Disease, that hopefully the Pritzker family will give them lots of money for, gender dysphoria.
