Fair Play for Trans People Means Health

12/09/2021

Coming armed with scientific arguments and peer-reviewed literature is important when wading through the fake scientific basis given by right wing newspapers and reactionary 1970s feminists in the ongoing debate around trans health care for younger gender questioning people. So, it is timely that Science News web portal staff writer, Maria Temming, reviews contemporary research and surveys to argue persuasively that trans youth who receive treatment, and affirming approaches to their gender identity, experience significantly better health outcomes than for trans people who are isolated and forbidden from exploring their identities. Temming sifts through the evidence to show that feminist arguments that most trans people regret their decision to obtain hormone or medical therapies do not stand up to any scientific scrutiny. In addition, Ms Temming reports on areas where more research is needed and where evidence is inconclusive. In the field of trans and gender identity science, her pieces is a good read, and we have linked to it via our website.
