Transgenderism and Humpty Dumpty

In my blog on the question of whether a 'trans man' can give birth, I mentioned how the transgender ideology has penetrated even into The British Medical Journal. Now we find it seeping into areas of ordinary discourse as well. We’re in the fantastical world of Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking Glass, (the sequel to Alice in Wonderland), [...]

The Invention of Gender Dysphoria

When I was working in full-time general practice I would occasionally see young women whose periods had stopped who came for another opinion after an initial visit to a gynaecologist. The gynaecologist had prescribed female hormones but this hadn't worked. The reason was obvious. The gynaecologist had failed to look above the patient’s waist: she was suffering from [...]

Gender Expression: Authentic, Ambiguous, or Delusory?

Much about the Harley Street Gender Clinic in London’s west end is ambiguous, not to say confused, just like the idea of gender expression itself.

Pandering to the Woke Brigade

What is it with The British Medical Journal (BMJ) that makes them pander to the ‘woke’ brigade? From an issue in early 2022 in an article on breast cancer screening, which obviously applies to women, they feel constrained to say: Some trans men and women and non-binary people are also eligible for breast cancer screening, and although the [...]

Puberty Blockers and Sex Hormones on Demand

Amazing news! An entity called gender dysphoria has been discovered! But it certainly is not a mental disorder, apparently. What is it then? To try and find out, let’s look at an outfit called GenderGP. Their website opens with a bold statement: ‘We believe trans people of all ages exist. Full stop. No debate.’ Why the defensive tone?
