As the Rest of the Civilized Nations Wake Up to the Horrors of "Gender Affirming Care" for Minors, Kansas' AWFL Governor Vetoes a Bill To Forbid It

The Cass Report rubbished all the fake "research" that trans zealots have been pushing to justify the mass-conversion of kids to trans perma-patients. (Why bill people for Forever Psychiatric Treatment when you can bill them for Forever Surgeries as well?)

Even the British Medical Journal, a hotbed of fashionable leftwing anti-science, is now forced to admit what has been obvious to everyone but the NPC cowards for ten years. Citations and footnotes admitted.

At the heart of Hilary Cass's review of gender identity services in the NHS is a concern for the welfare of "children and young people". Her stated ambition is to ensure that those experiencing gender dysphoria receive a high standard of care. This will be disputed, of course, by people and lobbying groups angered by her recommendations, but it is a theme running through the review. Cass, a past president of the UK's Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, seeks to provide better care for children and adolescents on one of the defining issues of our age. Her conclusion is alarming for anybody who genuinely cares for child welfare: gender medicine is "built on shaky foundations".

That verdict is supported by a series of review papers published in Archives of Disease in Childhood, a journal published by BMJ and the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health. The evidence base for interventions in gender medicine is threadbare, whichever research question you wish to consider--from social transition to hormone treatment.

The "scientists" pushing gender mutilation of children refused to cooperate with the review and hid their data.

You know: Typical "science" stuff.

The Cass review attempted to work with the Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS) and the NHS adult gender services to "fill some of the gaps in follow-up data for the approximately 9000 young people who have been through GIDS to develop a stronger evidence base." However, despite encouragement from NHS England, "the necessary cooperation was not forthcoming." Professionals withholding data from a national inquiry seems hard to imagine, but it is what happened.

Brendan O'Neill writes that the trans-extremists are (dark) religious maniacs who brook no dissent with their strange gods' commandments.

There's a whiff of moral blackmail to these wild claims that a calm, lucid review of NHS gender services could crank up 'anti-trans hatred'. What these people are really saying is that any discussion whatsoever about trans issues is dangerous. It's clear now that they don't only fear firebrands like Posie Parker -- God bless her -- but all analysis, all questioning, all debate. That even a government-commissioned, paediatrician-led review that makes great pains to be trans-friendly has caused so much gnashing of teeth is a testament to trans activists' hives-like hypersensitivity to any idea or fact that runs counter to their dogma.

That's what really underpins the rash reaction to Cass: a cult-like instinct to defend dogma, to protect holy beliefs from the sullying dissent of outsiders. It can be tempting to view this as the behaviour of a religion rather than a progressive movement, but even religions permit some dissent on doctrine. Even the old Catholic Church would employ a 'devil's advocate' to make the case against the canonisation of a saint. If anyone in the trans lobby were to suggest employing a 'devil's advocate' to test their cultish conviction that it's good to chop off a young lesbian's breasts or to allow a rapist into a women's prison, he'd be damned as a transphobe and No Platformed from every woke gathering in Christendom. The devil of dissent gets no voice at all in the trans world.

It's always a red flag when a movement demonises dissent as blasphemy. When it's a movement whose ghoulish achievements include the mutilation of healthy young bodies, the restoration of gay shame and the decimation of women's rights, it is doubly concerning.

But the trans extremists continue holding an iron-firm grip on the Democrat Party.

The Democrat governor of Kansas Loves The Science (TM), which is another way of saying "loves extremist left-wing identity politics."

A new law that would have banned so-called "gender-affirming care" for minors has been vetoed by Governor Laura Kelly.

Senate Bill 233, which passed 27-13 in the Kansas Senate and 82-39 in the Kansas House of Representatives, would have banned prescribing puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and any surgical interventions for anyone under the age of 18 in the state of Kansas.

The bill also would have allowed parents to sue if healthcare providers did provide such treatments, restricted the use of state funds to promote gender transitioning, prohibited professional liability insurance from covering damages for healthcare providers that provide gender transition treatment to children, and would have required professional discipline against a healthcare provider who performed such treatments.

"This divisive legislation targets a small group of Kansans by placing government mandates on them and dictating to parents how to best raise and care for their children," Kelly said in a release "I do not believe that is a conservative value, and it's certainly not a Kansas value."

"To be clear, this legislation tramples parental rights."

Kelly went on to imply that "gender-affirming care" is a medical necessity before taking a shot at the legislature over education.

"The last place that I would want to be as a politician is between a parent and a child who needed medical care of any kind," she said. "And, yet, that is exactly what this legislation does.

"If the legislature paid this much attention to the other 99.8% of students, we'd have the best schools on earth."

In a release, Kansas Speaker of the House Dan Hawkins (R-Wichita) slammed Kelly's veto of so-called 'gender-affirming care.'

"As we watch other states, nations, and organizations reverse course on these experimental procedures on children, Laura Kelly will most surely find herself on the wrong side of history with her reckless veto of this common-sense protection for Kansas minors," he said. "House Republicans stand ready to override her veto to protect vulnerable Kansas kids."

Kansas Senate President Ty Masterson (R-El Dorado) said that the "radical left controls Kelly's veto pen."
