    Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) is demanding action following the release of a video in which a doctor at Vanderbilt University Medical Center is seen bragging about moneymaking transgender surgeries. “Using children for profit and political gain is deeply disturbing. Experts agree that there have not been enough clinical trials conducted to prove the safety and effectiveness of using these drugs on kids,” Blackburn said in a press release. “These drugs have not been approved for treating children experiencing gender dysphoria, but the left insists on experimenting on these children anyway.” WIZARD OF WOKE: DIRECTOR TO REVAMP THE WIZARD OF OZ WITH LGBT REPRESENTATION We are shocked by what we have seen in these videos. We would hope that VUMC would make better decisions. There is nothing healthy about mutilating the bodies of minor children. We need an investigation into VUMC putting profits ahead of children immediately. https://t.co/WzoyLGlMlz— Sen.

    In the sea of anti-trans, hateful legislation coming from Republicans, it becomes all too easy to miss bills that aren’t getting the same mainstream media attention. One example comes to us out of Idaho, where the House State Affairs Committee recently approved House Bill 675, as reported by LGBTQ+ outlet them. The bill aims to add gender-affirming health care to an existing law that bans female genital mutilation, and would make it a felony for physicians to provide puberty blockers and hormones to people under 18. (It would also ban gender-affirming surgery on people under 18, but that is not generally done, anyway.) Republican state Rep. Bruce Skaug sponsored the bill. In speaking to Boise State Public Radio, Skaug compared gender-affirming health care to a number of dangerous decisions, like getting a tattoo, drinking alcohol, and smoking cigarettes. “Why would we allow them to go through these physical mutilations because of their feelings at the time,” he said. Mind you, actual physicians and medical experts have long agreed gender-affirming health care is life-saving care. He is wrong, but sadly, he...
    THIS lot could put even the most dedicated plastic surgery fan to shame.  Yesterday, we told how Katie Price has labelled herself a “surgery veteran” after she had five procedures in a Turkish hospital.  10Katie Price says she's a 'surgery veteran' after her latest round of opsCredit: BackGrid Surgery fan Katie, 43, has gone under the knife for three facelifts but told how she’s lost track of the number of boob jobs she’s had - thought to be around 12.  She told how she opted for more cosmetic surgeries after piling on two stone in lockdown. She said: “I was terrified of looking like a freak, like that Bride of Wildenstein or a fake doll. "I've woken up with holes and stitches all over my body. I look like I've got cat's whiskers coming out of my nose and eyes. But I just want the old Katie back!" 10Pricey said she wanted to return to the 'old Katie' with her five surgeriesCredit: Rex But Katie would have a long way to go to contend with these body modification lovers.  From...
    Liberal activists are rebranding sex change surgeries as “gender affirming medical care,” even when discussing these procedures for children. Former transgender people and conservative activists told the Daily Caller News Foundation that this is a deliberate effort to normalize the surgeries and make them more accessible to children. “This liberal obsession is destroying an entire generation,” a former transgender woman said. “And they don’t care.” The terminology many media outlets use in reporting on LGBTQ issues conforms to the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD)’s style guide for reporters, which warns that “journalists should avoid overemphasizing the role of surgeries in the transition process.” Liberal activists are rebranding sex change surgeries as “gender affirming medical care,” even when discussing these procedures for children. Former transgender people and conservative activists told the Daily Caller News Foundation that this is a deliberate effort to normalize the surgeries and make them more accessible to children. Lawmakers have proposed at least 114 bills related to transgender issues as of June 2, according the LGBTQ activism organization GLAAD. Both Arkansas and Tennessee...
    “Intersex” individuals are born with reproductive or sexual anatomy that doesn’t exactly fit into the binary categories of “male” or “female.” This may include looking like one sex externally, but having internal anatomy of the other sex. It might also refer to having an enlarged clitoris, small penis, or“a scrotum that is divided so that it has formed more like labia.” It’s important to note that “intersex” is actually socially constructed. People decide when something is not a normal representation of a certain sex; it’s not always easily distinguishable. Thus, doctors’ identifications of “intersex” vary. There isn’t a consensus on classifications of how small, big, or “abnormal” appearing a body part has to be labeled as intersex. Furthermore, some manifestations of being intersex may not show up until much later in life. People might even pass away without ever knowing.

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) tried on Thursday to get President Joe Biden’s Health and Human Services (HHS) nominee, Rachel Levine, a biological man who considers himself a transgender woman, to denounce allowing minors to take puberty-blocking hormones or undergo surgery to remove breasts or genitalia. “American culture is now normalizing the idea that minors can be given hormones to prevent their biological development of their secondary sexual characteristics,” Paul said at Levine’s confirmation hearing before the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee. “Dr. Levine, you have supported both allowing minors to be given hormone blockers to prevent them from going through puberty, as well as surgical destruction of a minor’s genitalia,” Paul said, comparing it to the universal opposition to female genital mutilation or FGM. “Like surgical mutilation, hormonal interruption of puberty can permanently alter and prevent secondary sexual characteristics,” Paul said.”The American College of pediatricians reports that 80 to 95 percent of pre-pubertal children with gender dysphoria will experience resolution by late adolescence if not exposed to medical intervention and social affirmation.” “Dr. Levine, do you believe that minors...

    Top health experts have voiced an uptick in obese patients seeking weight loss surgery in a bid to protect themselves from a heightened risk of severe COVID-19. Amid the pandemic, numerous studies have examined obesity as a risk factor for a more severe course of disease from the virus. Obesity, defined as a BMI over 30, is believed to consist of several pathways leading to poorer outcomes. Obesity-related metabolic changes can result in inflammation, issues with insulin and the immune system, which can hamper the person’s ability to fight COVID-19, researchers at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, previously found. Obesity is often associated with type 2 diabetes, heart disease, chronic kidney, liver disease and hypertension and brings along other physical ailments, such as sleep apnea. A high BMI can also complicate intubation in a hospital setting, according to Melinda Beck, professor of nutrition at the Gillings School. Also, the virus invades ACE2 receptors, which are abundant on fat cells, among other cell types, which act as a kind of activator to the “cytokine storm” associated with COVID-19...
    CHICAGO — Activist Pidgeon Pagonis said their early treatment at Lurie Children’s Hospital was dehumanizing. Pagonis was born intersex, with traits that don’t fit binary ideas of male or female. At Lurie, until recently, that meant being subjected to cosmetic genital surgeries. “When I was born, I wasn’t admitted to a caring medical facility. I was put on a medical factory’s conveyer belt — one labeled ‘girl,'” said Pagonis, who would later learn they had androgen insensitivity syndrome. “And my beautifully healthy, unique, nonbinary and intersex body was remanufactured into what Lurie Children’s Hospital deemed more appropriate and normal.” This week, Lurie officials pledged to stop performing such surgeries, making it the first medical institution in the United States to commit to ending genital surgeries on intersex children. Lurie issued a public apology on Tuesday to any intersex people harmed by their treatments. The announcement was the culmination of years of activism from intersex and trans leaders. Now, they are urging all other medical facilities to follow suit. “This is a watershed moment,” Sean Saifa Wall, Intersex Justice Project cofounder,...
