Genspect founder and Executive Director Stella O’Malley has appeared on Sky News Australia to spread the word about Genspect — and the 80% of gender-questioning kids who grow out of their gender-related distress.
Speaking of her recent experiences with families, Stella says:
An awful lot of parents have contacted me over the years since 2018, always saying the same thing. From everywhere: from Australia, from America, from Canada, from France, from Switzerland, the UK, Sweden, Norway. All saying that they are very concerned about their children […] their children often have autism, ADHD […]
They felt that these children, who were very vulnerable in the first place, weren’t receiving the appropriate medical care, and they weren’t receiving proper psychotherapeutic exploration. Instead, they were being affirmed, and they were being fast-tracked down a very medicalised pathway — unnecessarily.
This appearance comes hot on the heels of a recent Sky News Australia item on the recently released booklet, Australian Perspectives on Transgendering Children and Adolescents: Policy and Practice Implications. The booklet has been sent to every single Australian health minister and major politician, along with a letter calling for a national inquiry into the medicalization of gender-questioning children.
Recalling his confidential conversation with one Genspect parent, host Rowan Dean pulled no punches:
I spoke to one Australian mum this week who told me the heartbreaking story about her daughter, who has a long history of mental health issues, who fell in with one of these transgender organizations — the mum describes it as worse than a cult — who convinced the girl the answer to all her problems was to turn into a boy. And all the way along, the mum was sneered at by the medical profession for questioning the process.
This is a disgrace. The family has been torn apart. The mum has been ostracized from her daughter, now supposedly her son. And when the mum spoke to one surgeon — this will sicken you — he admitted that ten years ago he would never have “chopped a girl’s breasts off but now it is all too common.”
This is out of control. We need a national inquiry to determine that the medical profession is properly regulated when it comes to transgenderism and our children. Scott Morrison, Greg Hunt: get onto it, right now.
Genspect’s Antipodean contingent would like to express their sincere thanks to Sky News, and to Rowan Dean, for giving a space to this important discussion.
