Woman to sue NHS over ’rushed’ gender reassignment treatment

A woman given gender reassignment therapy as a teen is suing an NHS gender clinic for having rushed her into the treatment. Keira Bell,23, says she should have been challenged more by medical staff over her decision. She says the drugs prescribed to her have damaged her physical and mental health, although she admits, as a teen, she had no doubts that she wanted to change her gender.

Someday in the not-so-distant future society is going to view this practice every bit as barbaric as eugenics. And deservedly so.

Here's hoping this story makes people stop and think that people should really take the time to consider such body altering procedures. Instead of rushing to have such procedures done.

The picture is not of a woman.

So she blames the NHS for her not being interested in opposing views and therapies, and only now releases that the body actually needs those hormones for proper functioning... yeah, she should not be able to win as this is her own fault. :/

This is why minors should not be able to transition under any circumstance, ever. Not even with parental permission. It should be a strictly 18+ operation. As a teen you are still young and figuring yourself out, the choice could be greatly regretted later.

Yup...why not, let’s set the precedent that a mentally ill person can sue for being told to think slightly more or maybe reconsider mutilating themselves as well as being able to sue for not being told enough times to mutilate themselves The double think amazes me

Feel like I'm having to play devil's advocate hear on behalf of the doctors. This is the UK where it's happened, where you can be fired for misgendering, and doctors have been fired for this in the past. It's not much of an excuse but let's face it, it's a no win situation. Either stick by your morals and spend the rest of your life stacking shelves, or do as the parents, child and government demand and keep that green rolling in.

That clinic was just a production line. Kids went in one gender and came out the other. Hopefully the law suit will cause a change in how the NHS handle diagnosing and treating gender dismorphia and maybe they won't be so quick to jump into the surgery option until all psychological routes have been exhausted. Surgically altering someone's body should be illegal before the age of 18, preferably 21. Teenagers are just a big barrel of neurosis and self esteem issues. If they think there's a magic pill that will make the world make sense, of course they're going for it. They've been brainwashed by a cult into doing this to in essence "purify their bodies of sin", no different than drinking the coolaid to prove your faith. Once they have carried out the surgery and realised nothing has changed, it is now in fact worse and they're stuck with a body they hate more than before. It's too late. Hence the high rate of suicide amongst trans people.

That's definitely a woman - assigning blame to others for her bad decisions.

Doomed if you do, doomed if you don't... How about taking some responsibility, and also giving some to your parents...

We have 18+ rules for a reason, it’s when the brain is mostly developed and has experienced enough to be able to make decisions on its own. Why they don’t have 18+ rules boggles me

The only thing we should rush to do is treat these people as if they have a mental disorder because they do.
