The presenter is Charlie Creggs a trans-identified male. The film shows this disclaimer at the beginning of the broadcast.
The documentary opens with Cregg looking at a go fund me page for a kid who is raising funds to begin their ”transition”. Cregg’s can identify with this having faced a two year waiting list to be seen at a gender clinic.
You can search go fund me to scroll through fundraisers. There are over 8000 hits under the heading ”Transgender” most are seeking help with medical interventions. These are typical. ”Yeet the Teets” is the phrase used by an Irish Surgeon, based in the United States who promotes her services on TikTok; clearly its an effective marketing strategy.
Viewers are treated to all the information needed to buy, unregulated, hormones on the internet. This argument is used to push the U.K government to open more, state funded, services in the U.K. The government are currently running three pilot gender clinics. One of which is Indigo Clinic, in Manchester, run in partnership with a Trans Lobby group (LGBT Foundation). What could possibly go wrong?
Creggs talks to a young male who is obtaining hormones on the black market and is trusting people from an on-line forum to assure him they are safe. We then meet a young female who’s mum is helping her obtain testosterone from a private gender clinic. The mum explains that she could not risk her daughter taking desperate measures and provides this as an example of what could happen :
Asked about critics of her for putting her daughter on this treatment path she simply says this 👇. I wonder when we will start to see some of these parents face their detransitioned daughters.
Next the presenter goes to visit Helen Webberley who, together with her husband runs Gender GP. Webberley’s husband has been struck of the medical register and she remains suspended from practice.
To those in the Gender Identity industry she is seen as a noble warrior up against a transphobic medical establishment. Webberley is a proponent of the ”affirmative” model of ”transgender” health care, sometimes called the “informed consent” model. One of her patients committed suicide and she makes a tidy living out of our vulnerable kids but to some she is above criticism. On asked about lengthy assessment processes she has this to say: 👇
For her critics she compares the withholding of treatment to a refusal to operate on a baby with a heart defect. A poor analogy because only one of these has an objective measure to determine that the treatment is warranted. She is a ridiculous woman but also very dangerous.
Of course no piece would be complete without a reference to the dodgy suicide stats. Creggs emotes to camera:
Cut to the thoroughly debunked statistics on suicide just to ram home the point.
/ /study is based on 13, yes 13, people who self reported attempts at suicide. I debunked this data here:
We then meet another young woman who is planning to got to Poland for a double mastectomy. We see her explaining breast binding, talking about “trans” friends attempting suicide and explaining her desperation for “top surgery”.
I had assumed this young female was probably a Lesbian so imagine my surprise when I received a direct message where she explained that she was actually a gay man.
Sure enough the twitter timeline was all about A.I.Ds and Section 28. None of these have impacted on her in any way as she is 19 and female. I honestly thought teenage girls claiming to be gay men would wake up more gay men to this phenomenon but, instead, gay men are doing instruction manuals for how they can include ”trans men” in their dating pools.
Creggs then talks about the additional treatments he endured because of the impact of a male puberty. A lot of this movement is driven by the retrospective, wish fulfilment of adult males who yearn to “pass”. This is why so many adult males push puberty blockers for kids and repeatedly present them as a benign, reversible medication. This is how Charlie describes them:
We then meet one of the GPs working at the one of the new pilot clinics which confirm my worst fears.
The documentary covers the Keira Bell case and interviews Jolyon Maugham , a UK QC famous for battering a fox to death wearing his wife’s kimono. Maugham was raising funds for a legal case to challenge the Bell ruling. (It did not go ahead because the Tavistock stepped in to appeal.
We then meet a detransitioner who seems carefully selected and begins by saying that detransitioners were being weaponised against the ”trans” community. Even this section was used to make a case for more clinics but, at least, she emphasised the importance of therapy.
Creggs comes across as calm and rational but their social media presence tells a different story.
