‘Transgender’ Toddlers Receiving ‘Treatment’ at North Carolina Hospitals: Report

A disturbing new report suggests that several North Carolina hospitals may be providing transgender services to children as young as two years old and training primary care doctors how to perform the experimental “treatments.” According to findings from independent journalist Sloan Rachmuth, Duke Medicine, UNC Health, and ECU Health all offer various services for young children aimed at “social transitioning” through intensive therapy.

According to the report, Duke Medicine opened a “Gender Clinic” in 2015, offering services to teens and children diagnosed with gender dysphoria. Dr. Deanna Adkins, who Rachmuth describes as a “transgender activist,” runs the clinic and, in 2016, stated that she had been treating patients for gender dysphoria as young as two years old.

She said in an interview with the Charlotte Observer,

“They are not old enough to consciously just choose to do that. … It is not a choice in any of my patients. It’s really an unpleasant thing to have going on in your body to feel that distress about yourself. I can’t imagine anyone who would choose to do that.”

The paper describes Adkins as the “director of the Duke Center for Child and Adolescent Gender Care.” Her comments were also shared on the Facebook page of Duke Children’s Hospital.

Rachmuth’s report also included comments from Adkins taken from an expert declaration in federal court, where the “gender care” doctor claims that “From a medical perspective,” the only “appropriate determinant of sex is gender identity.”

“It is counter to medical science to use chromosomes, hormones, internal reproductive organs, external genitalia, or secondary sex characteristics to override gender identity for purposes of classifying someone as male or female.”

At UNC Health, children as young as three years old can be evaluated for gender dysphoria and receive coaching from psychiatrists on how to socially transition, according to an intake form obtained by Rachmuth. Organized under the hospital’s Department of Psychology, the “Gender Equity and Wellness Initiative” offers “gender-affirming care” in the form of “psychoeducation” for children aged 3-11.

UNC’s website assures parents that the hospital’s teams of psychiatrists, endocrinologists, family doctors, and surgeons will work together to “affirm” the gender of their child, whatever gender it is they’ve chosen.

ECU Health recently started offering pediatric trans services, courtesy of the hospital’s new “Pride Clinic.” According to the doctor overseeing the clinic, Colby Dendy, children as young as four can receive “affirming primary care.” In an interview with East Carolinian, Dendy said those children can even self-identify on the gender and LGBTQ “spectrum.”

“The literature tells us that kids can start around age four having their gender identity, so we do not want to exclude anybody within the pediatrics realm… A big part of our goal is to provide affirming primary care to everybody in LGBTQ+ spectrum.”

According to Rachmuth, the ECU Pride Clinic recently received a $3.2 million grant for its “telepsychiatry program for school children.”

While there is no evidence to suggest any of these clinics (currently) offer any means of physically transitioning, such as drugs or surgeries, the testimony of the doctors suggests that young children are being coached to “socially transition.” According to court testimony from Adkins, that can include teaching them to wear clothing of the opposite sex, use bathrooms other than their “assigned sex,” and adopt new pronouns.

“Before puberty, treatment does not include any drug or surgical intervention. For this group of patients, treatment is limited to “social transition,” which means allowing a transgender child to live and be socially recognized in accordance with their gender identity.

This can include allowing children to wear clothing, to cut or grow their hair, to use names and pronouns, and to access restrooms and other sex-separated facilities and activities in line with their gender identity instead of the sex assigned to them at birth.

Social transition is a critical part of treatment of patients with gender dysphoria of all ages and it is the only treatment for pre-pubertal children.”
