    THE WPATH FILES

    Advocates of gender-affirming care say it’s evidence-based.

    But now, newly released internal files from the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) prove that the practice of transgender medicine is neither scientific nor medical.

    American Medical Association, The Endocrine Society, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and thousands of doctors worldwide rely on WPATH. It is considered the leading global authority on gender medicine.

    And yet WPATH’s internal files, which include written discussions and a video, reveal that its members know they are creating victims and not getting “informed consent.”

    Victims include a 10-year-old girl, a 13-year-old developmentally delayed adolescent, and individuals suffering from schizophrenia and other serious mental illnesses.

    The injuries described in the WPATH Files include sterilization, loss of sexual function, liver tumors, and death.

    WPATH members indicate repeatedly that they know that many children and their parents don’t understand the effects that puberty blockers, hormones, and surgeries will have on their bodies. And yet, they continue to perform and advocate for gender medicine.

    The WPATH Files prove that gender medicine is comprised of unregulated and pseudoscientific experiments on children, adolescents, and vulnerable adults. It will go down as one of the worst medical scandals in history.

    Why I Am Publishing WPATH Files And How I Got Them

    The written WPATH Files come from WPATH’s member discussion forum, which runs on software provided by DocMatter.

    Ninety seconds of the 82-minute video was made public last year. We are making the full video available for the first time.

    One or more people gave me the WPATH Files, and my colleagues and I attempted to summarize them as a series of articles. We quickly realized the topic was too sensitive, complex, and large to be dealt with as a work of journalism, and we moved the project to the research institute I founded seven years ago, Environmental Progress (EP).

    The Files are authentic. We redacted most names and left only those individuals who are leading gender medicine practitioners to whom we sent “right-of-reply” emails. We know WPATH members discussed our emails internally. No WPATH leader or member has denied that the Files are anything other than what they appear to be.

    EP is publishing a 70-page report to provide context for the 170 pages of WPATH Files. Mia Hughes is the author of the report. It and accompanying summary materials can be downloaded at the link below. That link also provides a link to the full WPATH video.

    What follows are simply a few highlights. People with a serious interest in the topic should read the report and all the files:



     
    Another right wing kook... more war on transgender people just trying to exist. These a-holes can't stop hating on transgender people and can't stop making their lives more difficult for one freaking day. It's gratuitous and disgusting.
     
    Benjamin Ryan is a health and science reporter and a contributor to NYT, NBC News, Guardian, Washington Post, The Atlantic. Typical right winger




     
    Spamming the board, because of your record here I don’t think anyone will be taking you seriously. I certainly won’t be reading any of these tweets, because you have promoted so many lies here for years.
     
    Man one guy is your whole source imagine that. maybe you should provide proof this is actually real not another right wing freak out thats been typical and people that are vert gullible fall for.

    In case you missed it, last week, conservative activists released a document purported to expose "the worst medical scandal in history." Of course, I'm referring to the WPATH Files leak, reminiscent of ClimateGate. This incident involved a set of selectively cherry-picked and often decontextualized forum posts from an internal bulletin board, where doctors could ask one another questions and share clinical observations. I quickly fact-checked the document, which featured 37,000 words of editorial commentary, and found 216 instances of errors, misrepresentation of data and citations, misrepresentations of the actual leaked material, and more—a number that continues to grow. However, one section particularly caught my eye: the authors seemingly express frustration that transgender regret is so low and go so far as to call it "suspicious" that transgender people are so happy.

    The section in question, like many other sections, frames something in the leaks that would otherwise be read positively “actually” scandalous. Marci Bowers, in a discussion about detransitioners, notes that regret rates tend to be very low for transgender care. Another post weighs in that in 25 years, they have seen 600 patients and only 4 detransitioners. These two “leaks” obviously dispute the idea that transgender people are filled with regret and that transition does not make people happier, so the editorialized report takes another tactic: that it is “suspicious” that transgender people are so happy.

    See this section from the report, entitled “suspiciously low regret rates”:

    he is like trump needs constant attention and his info is about as reliable as trumps.

    Always complaining. I'll have to look for your last wall of tweets. The Washington Post & the Guardian reported on it among others but you can continue to ignore that if you like.
     
    Lol all this came out more than 3 weeks ago. (See tweet dates?)

    And it got soooo little traction (because it's stupid) that he felt obligated to create 3 separate wall of tweets to try and bring it back into lime light.

    Stop posting on this thread and this whole topic will be on page 2 by week's end (where it belongs).
     
    you miss the word opinions right there.
    You said you thought this would be fake. Does the Washington Post opinion article talking about it mean that it's fake like you claimed? What about The Guardian?
