Rapid-onset gender dysphoria in adolescents and young adults: A study of parental reports

Lisa Littman

“Recently, clinicians have reported that post-puberty presentations of gender dysphoria in natal females that appear to be rapid in onset is a phenomenon that they are seeing more and more in their clinic. Academics have raised questions about the role of social media in the development of gender dysphoria.”

“On voitava keskustella siitä, ettei kaikissa tilanteissa tarkoituksenmukaisin toimintamalli ole sukupuolen uudelleenmäärittelyn edellytysten arvioinnin käynnistäminen, ja huolehdittava, ettei synny automaattisesti fyysisiin hoitoihin johtavia hoitopolkuja kehitysikäisille.”

Gender-affirming hormone in children and adolescents

Carl Henegan, Tom Jefferson

“There are significant problems with how the evidence for Gender-affirming cross-sex hormone has been collected and analysed that prevents definitive conclusions to be drawn. Similar to puberty blockers, the evidence is limited by small sample sizes; retrospective methods, and loss of considerable numbers of patients in the follow-up period.”

“Furthermore, from speaking with international colleagues, it seems to us that this phenomenon is also beingobserved in North America, Australia, and the rest of Europe. In addition, we are witnessing high levels of distress and comorbidity.”

Key Issues in decision-making for gender transition treatment: Questions and answers

Dianna Kenney

“In this article, I address key issues in the transgender debate as they pertain to children and young people. These include: Are “gender transition treatments” safe, “curative” and in the child’s best interest? In considering these questions, I explore the known negative consequences of puberty suppression and cross-sex hormones, including infertility and other medical conditions and the purported increase in suicidality without treatment.”

Riittakerttu Kaltiala, Hannah Bergman, Polly Carmichael, Nastasja M. de Graaf, Karen Egebjerg Rischel, Louise Frisén, Martina Schorkopf, Laura Suomalainen & Anne Waehre

“The clear difference between Finland and the other countries studied here in the overrepresentation of adolescent girls among young people seeking gender reassignment remains unexplained.”

“Intensive research is needed to increase the understanding of gender dysphoria/transgender identification in minors and to determine the treatment approaches best serving the interests of minors.”
