In what many call a controversial revelation, a hospital employee from Kaiser Permanente has reportedly leaked the contents of a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) training. According to the anonymous employee, the training suggested that children as young as 3 can identify as transgender. Here’s the whole story.
“My Name Is Rose. I’m a Transgender Girl. I Was Born a Boy, but I Always Knew That I Was a Girl”
A Wednesday submission to Libs of TikTok brought this explosive report into the limelight.
The alleged DEI video is said to feature children who claim to have recognized their transgender identities at the tender ages of 3 and 4.
Highlighting an instance from the video, a young child named Rose states, “My name is Rose. I’m a transgender girl. I was born a boy, but I always knew that I was a girl.”
Her father explained that Rose used to send notes to Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, wishing to be transformed into a girl.
A Trans-Identified Man Remarked About His Dreams as a 3-Year-Old, Which Included Becoming a Father and Marrying Janet Jackson
The video also showcased views from adults. One trans-identified man remarked about his dreams as a 3-year-old, which included becoming a father and marrying Janet Jackson.
The DEI video tries to capture the perspectives of others who identify as “non-binary,” attempting to show that they don’t conform to traditional male or female gender norms.
In an attempt to address the brewing controversy, Kaiser Permanente swiftly stated to Fox News.
They made it clear that while the video may have featured young children speaking about their gender identities, it did not advocate for or allude to any medical intervention for children of such a young age.
“Tootsie Roll Pops,” “Gender Smoothies,” and “Gender Minotaurs”
Further distancing themselves from radical medical procedures for the age group, the statement declared, “Kaiser Permanente does not provide hormone treatments or gender-affirming surgery to 3 and 4-year-olds.”
However, medical opinions on the broader topic of transgender identification and treatments have polarized professionals.
Diane Ehrensaft, a prominent figure associated with the gender clinic at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital, was recently criticized for trying to introduce controversial identities such as “Tootsie Roll Pops,” “Gender Smoothies,” and “Gender Minotaurs,” calling these new identifications the essence of the “Gender Revolution.”
Should Parents Accept Their Child’s Gender Ideologies as Early as Birth?
Meanwhile, Dr. Lauren T. Roth, a pediatrician associated with the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, ignited debate by suggesting that parents should accept their child’s gender ideologies as early as birth.
She went a step further, critiquing the colors of pink and blue for babies, pointing to the societal “expectations” they bring.
Another perspective comes from military physician Dr. David Klein, who claimed that sex changes could cure psychotic symptoms in patients.
This claim saw the Pentagon quickly distancing itself, especially after media scrutiny.
“It’s Easy To Make Assumptions [That] This Is Something Inherent to Transgender and Gender Diverse People”
Dr. Klein elaborated by saying, “I think this by looking at the rates, you know, psychotic disorders, it’s easy to make assumptions [that] this is something inherent to transgender and gender diverse people. I don’t think that we know that. And I think that more likely it’s that when treatments are optimized, these diagnoses start to melt away over time.”
The debate becomes even more complex when professionals like Dr. Stanley Goldfarb of Do No Harm weigh in.
The Discussion Around Young Transgender Identities Is as Essential as It Is Controversial
His organization, based on the Hippocratic Oath, argues that existing medical literature fails to support prescribing hormones and puberty blockers to minors.
With such diverse opinions and the fresh leak from Kaiser Permanente’s DEI training, it’s clear that the discussion around young transgender identities is as essential as it is controversial.
