Description: “I’m an endocrinologist concerned about the lack of evidence for hormonal and surgical treatments for gender dysphoria, and the failure of medical societies to facilitate debate on this issue. I’m concerned that gender non-conforming, and autism spectrum adolescents and young adults are being told that hormones and surgeries will provide solutions to social difficulties or body discomfort, when there’s no convincing evidence of that.

I’m concerned about the harm that’s being done to these individuals with powerful hormones and irreversible surgeries. Learn more at http://segm.org.”
