Welcome to Transgender Trend.
Listen here to Founder and Director Stephanie Davies-Arai talking about the harms of gender ideology for children and young people.
With thanks to FiLiA charity for this recording.
“We have failed this generation of kids”.
Stephanie Davies-Arai talks to Benjamin Boyce about the new unreality we are living in, what we are doing to kids, the real function of puberty blockers and how The Tavistock Judicial Review has changed the world.
Transgender Trend is the leading organisation in the call for evidence-based healthcare for children and young people suffering gender dysphoria and for factual, science-based teaching in schools. Our expertise was acknowledged recently when we were granted permission by the High Court to intervene in the Keira Bell v Tavistock & Portman NHS Trust judicial review.
Established in 2015, Transgender Trend has led the way in advocating for the rights of children to reject gender stereotypes and be who they really are without discrimination, labelling or medical intervention to ‘fix’ them.
We believe all children have the right to go through puberty and reach adulthood with their fertility intact and that this is a fundamental human right.
We believe that children with gender dysphoria deserve evidence-based treatment and have a right to the same duty of care as any other child.
Our message is:
No child is born in the wrong body.
Transgender Trend advocates for the most vulnerable children who are caught up in the recent trend in society to replace the objective reality of sex with the subjective idea of ‘gender identity’ as the criteria for being a man or being a woman. ‘Gender identity’ ideology teaches children who don’t conform to masculine or feminine stereotypes that their personalities are ‘wrong’ for their sex, and their bodies are then ‘wrong’ for their gender identity.
The number of children and young people who now believe they are really the opposite sex is reflected in the unprecedented recent trend in referrals to the Tavistock Gender Identity Development Service.
Boys and girls should be able to wear what they like and have whatever interests they choose without adult interpretation through the lens of a non-scientific, ideological belief that human beings are born with an innate sense of being male or female, which is inevitably based on sex stereotypes.
In school, acceptance of a boy who likes to play with dolls as a girl is no acceptance at all.
Acceptance of a lesbian adolescent girl as a straight boy is no acceptance at all.
This approach only serves to reinforce restrictive and harmful stereotypes. ‘Affirmation’ is not kind, it affirms to a child that they are the wrong sex and encourages a child’s belief that their body needs medically changing. Medical intervention can only ever effect cosmetic change; the child’s sex remains the same.
We advocate for the rights of lesbian and gay young people to grow up as lesbian or gay. We advocate for the rights of autistic children and those with mental health problems or background trauma to receive proper therapeutic care, not a ‘diagnosis’ that they are really the opposite sex. All children and young people deserve treatment based on clinical evidence, not ideology.
In schools all children deserve to be taught science-based facts, not ideology disguised as ‘fact’. All children have the right to privacy from the opposite sex in toilets and changing-rooms. Policy in schools must always put safeguarding first and schools should not use resources that confuse children about sex.
Children should not be coerced into expressing a belief in ‘gender identity’ through the threat that not to do so is ‘unkind’ or ‘transphobic’.
