Between 2010 and 2020, 382 children aged six and under were referred to Britain’s infamous transgender services, some of whom were as young as three years old.

3-year-olds sent to transgender clinic

Having no minimum age limitation to patients it will see, the absurdity of London’s Tavistock Clinic has been exposed in a report by the Daily Mail.

Between 2010 and 2020, 12 three-year-olds, 61 four-year-olds, 140 five-year-olds, and 169 six-year-olds were all referred to the clinic.

The transgender clinic claimed that three-year-olds would not have received “treatment,” also alleging that “staff normally [hold] a ‘one-off discussion’ with parents or carers to provide support and advice.”

The Daily Mail further indicated the state-funded Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS) clinic, run by the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust in north London, also have had a massive spike in the number of children they’ve seen over the last ten years.

In the last decade, the clinic saw more than a 2,500% increase in the number of child and adolescent patients, from 136 in 2010-2011, to 3,585 children in 2021-2022.

Ordered closure delayed conveniently in time for the creation of replacement services

Since its opening in 1999, the clinic has “treated” some 19,000 children, but was finally ordered to close in 2022 after whistleblowers exposed the clinic for their targeting of children and was deemed “not safe.”

However, the closure was delayed for almost a full year, conveniently in time for the opening of a new updated service that will “treat” children seven and up.

Politicians speak out: “let kids be kids”

British MP and former Under-Secretary of State for Mental Health, Jackie Doyle-Price, commented on the development saying, “There needs to be a clear message that goes out to let kids be kids. Let them play and use their imaginations. We shouldn’t be medicalising something which is just growing up.”

Conservative MP Nick Fletcher also remarked saying, “It is tragic that their parents would not have known that the clinic was using treatment approaches biased towards affirmation and unsupported by rigorous evidence.

He added, “We have not even begun to understand how gender ideology managed to get such a strong grip on the NHS,” and continued to say “Our NHS must be driven by science and evidence – not ideology.”

Additionally, Fletcher said that adult gender clinics also see vulnerable teens and young adults all while escaping any scrutiny. The Tavistock clinic at this time faces a lawsuit from 1,000 families for misdiagnosing their children and causing enormous harm, including the chopping off of teenager’s body parts.
