Only one of them has switched back: report
TheCollegeFix. One doctor and medical school professor at the University of Southern California is reportedly responsible for guiding some 1,000 children into transgender identities, according to a Reuters news report.
Johanna Olson-Kennedy is an associate professor of clinical pediatrics at USC’s Keck School of Medicine as well as the medical director of the Center for Transyouth Health and Development at the Los Angeles Children’s Hospital. Olson-Kennedy has advocated “gender affirming treatment” for significant numbers of children who claim transgender identities, comparing them to diabetic patients who need insulin.
She has also advised that the minimum age for cross-sex hormones treatment can be as young as 8-years-old.
According to Reuters, Olson-Kennedy has worked with about 1,000 children and youths, assisting and affirming them as they adopt a transgender identity. Writing on Olson-Kennedy’s work helping transgender youth with “social transitions,” the news service reported: “Of some 1,000 patients [Olson-Kennedy] has dealt with, only one switched back to the natal gender.”
