A former employee at a prominent transgender clinic in the United States has come forward to reveal the extent of her ex-employer’s efforts to groom young children who mistakenly believed themselves to be “transgender” or “nonbinary.”
As reported by the Daily Caller, Jamie Reed is a former case manager at the St. Louis Children’s Hospital’s transgender clinic. In February, she sent an affidavit to the office of Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey claiming that young children who went to the clinic would be put through extreme sex-change treatments with virtually no psychiatric evaluations beforehand. As a result of her claims, Bailey has since announced an investigation into the clinic and its pro-transgender activities.
Reed recently expanded upon her allegations in an interview with the U.K.-based “Triggernometry” podcast.
“Let’s say I bring a 12-year-old daughter to you,” said host Konstantin Kisin. “Three days ago she said she was nonbinary, she wants they/them pronouns, what happens to her from there?”
“So initially I would try to be encouraging you as a parent to find a therapist, and start working with a therapist for your kid,” Reed answered. “But the minute you’re talking to me on the phone you have already started on a pathway. Because the only therapist that I have to refer your kid to are therapists who are going to affirm their gender identity, not question it at all, and potentially as soon as I say take your kid to that therapist, that therapist might see them for one or two visits and send them right back to the center to get started and seen by the people who prescribe hormones.”
Kisin then clarified that with this claim, Reed was essentially saying that a child could be put on hormones as soon as three days after simply declaring themselves to be nonbinary, which Reed confirmed.
“So three days ago my daughter says, ‘I think I’m nonbinary’ because she saw on social media, let’s say,” Kisin asked. “I bring her to you, you send us to a therapist, therapist sees her a couple of times, sends us back to you in order to see a doctor to prescribe hormones?”
“Potentially, yes,” Reed replied.
She also revealed that when the clinic would prescribe such “cross-sex” hormones for children, they would often do so without informing the parents and their children about the harmful side effects of such drugs. Reed also said that the clinic would actively undermine the parents’ authority, and in any dispute between two parents on the matter of transgenderism, the clinic would side with the parent who was in favor of “transitioning” the child.
