    Christy Olezeski, PhD, Director and co-founder of the Yale Pediatric Gender Program, submitted written testimony yesterday for the Judiciary Committee meeting in Hartford about SB00214 - Consolidating Statutory Provisions Relating to Reproductive Health Care Services and Gender-Affirming Health Care Services.

    Her testimony read, in part:

    "As I am the Director of the Pediatric Gender Program I see firsthand how some patients are fleeing the states they have called home in order to get medically necessary care in CT. Gender-affirming care can be lifesaving for youth, and is a medical decision made between a child, their parent and their medical provider. We need to make sure that we have well-trained providers who are providing the best care according to the most recent research and professional guidelines. We also need to ensure that we have a safe place for youth and their families to access care, and safety for providers to provide such care.'

    This is far from the first time that Olezeski defended gender-affirming health care.

    Back in February 2022, she, along with other members of the Yale Gender Program, wrote a letter "in solidarity" with Texas families to express "anger, frustration and sadness" about Governor Abbott's comments at the time that suggested medical treatment of transgender youth should be "investigated as child abuse."

    Then in August 2022, Olezeski made national headlines after an old video of her emerged and was making the rounds on social media, thanks to conservative influencer Robby Starbuck. In the video Olezeski gleefully boasted that Yale's Pediatric Medicine program was treating children from ages 3 to 25 years old on their "gender journey". Olezeski added that the gender program helps people think “through the risks and benefits of medical intervention, starting medical intervention and also building supports around them.”

    “I love what I do,” Olezeski continued. “So, it’s really, really wonderful to be working in this field and to be working with individuals who are gender diverse and gaining their support and helping them on their gender journeys.”

    Immediately after Starbuck exposed Olezeski, she deleted tweets and set her profile to "private".

    Additionally, Yale deleted a 2019 article that confirmed Yale Medicine’s program "treats people as young as 3 and up to age 25" and "combines mental-health care with medical treatment."

    The deleted article went on to quote Susan Boulware, MD, a Yale Medicine pediatric endocrinologist who claimed that, “as many as 1 or 2 in 100 children” are transgender. Boulware felt that transgender children, who often present with anxiety and depression, represented an underserved segment in the health care community, and envisioned building a comprehensive gender center to serve this segment at the time. A vision which was, of course, realized. (Note that Connecticut became the fifth state to require health insurance providers to cover treatments related to gender transition in 2013.)

    Yale's website currently indicates that puberty blockers are typically administered around age 9 or 10, and cross-sex hormones are usually started between ages 14 and 16.

    Dr. Boulware has called puberty blockers "important' and said, "it can be traumatic for a child who identifies as a boy to have to go through female puberty, and vice versa." She further said that the safety of cross-hormone therapy based on the data for trans adults is “very reassuring.”

    Yale claims that, "many, but not all, of the changes from the puberty-blocking medications can be reversed if a patient stops taking them. While data for cross-hormone therapy for adults shows them to be safe, there is little information evaluating their long-term effects for developing adolescents."

    Except it turns out that the recently released World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) files refute many of the claims made by Yale's pediatric gender "professionals".

    WPATH is considered the leading global scientific and medical authority on “gender medicine.”

    “The WPATH Files show that what is called ‘gender medicine’ is neither science nor medicine,” said Michael Shellenberger, President and founder of Environmental Progress which published the WPATH files. “The experiments are not randomized, double-blind, or controlled. It’s not medicine since the first rule is to do no harm. And that requires informed consent.”

    The statement issued by Environmental Progress says:

    "In the WPATH Files, members demonstrate a lack of consideration for long-term patient outcomes despite being aware of the debilitating and potentially fatal side effects of cross-sex hormones and other treatments. Messages in the files show that patients with severe mental health issues, such as schizophrenia and dissociative identity disorder, and other vulnerabilities such as homelessness, are being allowed to consent to hormonal and surgical interventions. Members dismiss concerns about these patients and characterize efforts to protect them as unnecessary “gatekeeping."

    The files provide clear evidence that doctors and therapists are aware they are offering minors life-changing treatments they cannot fully understand. WPATH members know that puberty blockers, hormones, and surgeries will cause infertility and other complications, including cancer and pelvic floor dysfunction. Yet they consider life-altering medical interventions for young patients, including vaginoplasty for a 14-year-old and hormones for a developmentally delayed 13-year-old. 

    The WPATH Files also show how far medical experiments in gender medicine have gone, with discussions about surgeons performing “nullification” and other extreme body modification procedures to create body types that do not exist in nature.  

    A growing number of medical and psychiatric professionals say the promotion of pseudoscientific surgical and hormonal experiments is a global medical scandal that compares to major incidents of medical malpractice in history, such as lobotomies and ovariotomies.

    “Activist members of WPATH know that the so-called ‘gender-affirming care’ they provide can result in life-long complications and sterility and that their patients do not understand the implications, such as loss of sexual function and the ability to experience orgasm,” Shellenberger said. “These leaked files show overwhelming evidence that the professionals within WPATH know that they are not getting consent from children, adolescents, and vulnerable adults, or their caregivers.”

    Would it surprise you to learn that Christy Olezeski and Susan Boulware are both members of WPATH?

    If Olezeski is a member of WPATH, then she surely must be aware of the WPATH files.

    And if she's aware of the WPATH files, what in the world is she doing advocating for gender-affirming care in front of the Judiciary Committee?
