Topic: Childhood Gender Transitions
Keira Bell Challenges the Establishment on Childhood Gender Transitions. In today's show Todd, Michelle, and Father Tad discuss the story of Keira Bell, who sued the Tavistock clinic in London after she claimed the medical staff failed to challenge her seriously about her decision as a teenager to transition to a male. She received puberty blockers, testosterone and an operation to remove her breasts. In a landmark ruling delivered in December 2020, a British court upheld her claim that she’d been rushed through gender reassignment without proper safeguards, and noted that children cannot properly give consent in such situations.
