School counsellors and mental health service providers are bowing to pressures from ‘highly politicised’ transgender groups to affirm children’s beliefs that they were born the wrong sex, a leading expert has warned.
Marcus Evans, a psychotherapist and ex-governor of the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, whose Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS) is the only NHS clinic to provide gender counselling and transitioning, said many experts were living in fear of being labelled transphobic, which was having an impact on their objectivity.
“I believe the trans political agenda has encroached on the clinical environment surrounding and within the Gender Identity Development Service,” Evans told the Observer.
Political agendas intrude on every other part of life, why not here?
Just as one example, everyone knows that inequality has risen under the Coalition and Tories, amirite? I mean, we all know this in our bones.
It hasn’t. Inequality is lower than at any time that G. Brown was PM.
So why wouldn’t we believe that political agendas infest other areas of life?
