Wash. Rinse. Repeat.

Here’s the cycle: An “anti-LGBTQ” account like Libs of TikTok posts videos from Boston Children’s Hospital talking about “gender-affirming hysterectomies.” The hospital denies performing these operations on minors and starts taking videos down. Finally, the mainstream media takes notice when the hospital receives “a torrent of threats” from right-wingers.

It happened with Boston Children’s Hospital and now it’s happening again with Children’s National Hospital in Washington, D.C. So what happened this time? Libs of TikTok contacted Children’s National about a gender-affirming hysterectomy for her 16-year-old. The nurse on the phone says that’s great, and when pressed, says that they see even younger patients.

The hospital said it was aware of the audio recording going around on social media and tried to redirect the narrative:

At this point the Washington Post steps in, citing the flood and torrents of threats the hospital received because of the recording.

“What exactly is it you do here?”

It gets worse:

So, again, the press doesn’t step in until it has a “Republicans pounce” angle. Right-wing activists have caused a torrent of threats to a children’s hospital. There’s apparently no story in the hospital telling Libs of TikTok it did surgery on 16-year-old and “younger.”
