Clinicians at Scottish gender clinics are following guidelines issued by a body that advocates sex-change surgery for children.
In a leaked recording, obtained by The Daily Telegraph, a consultant clinical psychologist at the Sandyford Clinic states explicitly that gender clinics are following advice issued by the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH), despite the NHS and Scottish Government denying this is the case.
WPATH presents itself as a global body of medical professionals but its critics believe it is little more than a lobbying group, set up to legitimise an extreme form of gender ideology. It believes people who identify as eunuchs should be able to receive castrations on the NHS.
In its new guidelines, which were released in September, it calls for “eunuch” to be recognised as an official gender identity and for “surgical intervention” to be considered for those who “wish to eliminate masculine physical features”.
Its guidelines provide a link to a eunuch fetish website that contains graphic depictions of child abuse so extreme that when they were examined by NHS cyber security staff, they recommended it was reported to Police Scotland.
The guidelines also endorse use of breast binders and “genital tucking” for teenagers, despite health risks, and states that adolescents should be able to access sex change surgery, even if this is not supported by their parents.
