History will look back with horror on all the otherwise rational, talented, intelligent people who either supported this medical madness or stood by and did nothing. We must hope and pray that more doctors take a similar stand and that governments come to their senses to legislate “gender-affirmative” medical care out of existence.
In a remote city in Australia’s north, a big story is quietly playing out. Two months ago, psychiatrist Jillian Spencer was suspended from her role at the Queensland Children’s Hospital for standing up against the transgender medical complex that has overtaken so much of mainstream Western medicine.
This story emerged only days ago in the Australian media, and it raises serious questions about the kind of “care” being offered in Australian hospitals. The courageous stand of Dr. Spencer, in one of Brisbane’s most prominent hospitals, is just the latest in a string of signs that the transgender craze might eventually come to a halt, with the utopian visions of activists and medical practitioners to be smashed on the rocks of reality.
The trajectory that the transgender revolution has taken in its rapid unfolding is familiar. Like the revolutions in 20th-century Russia or 18th-century France, a progressive elite boldly but falsely proclaimed a coming heaven on earth, a new age, a march towards true justice and reason. In our current historical moment, the putative beneficiaries are not workers or peasants. They are sexually adventurous adults, for sure, but also vulnerable minors.
