AP: Human rights groups decry painful gender-affirmation surgery as 'torture'

Here’s a little bit of a puzzler. The AP is reporting that even in places in the United States, transgender people must undergo “painful, complex surgeries that often render them sterile” before the government will legally recognize their gender. This is the first time we’ve heard from the mainstream media that gender-affirming surgeries are painful and leave you sterile — the Biden administration is 100 percent behind gender-affirming care, including surgery. But the AP says that human rights groups call this “torture” — not the painful surgery, obviously, but rather not being legally recognized as your true gender without having it.


AP reports:

Across the world, scores of countries still require transgender people to submit to such surgeries before their genders are legally recognized, a practice international human rights bodies have condemned as torture. These policies have left untold numbers of transgender people with an agonizing choice between their fertility and their identity.

In the U.S., 13 states and territories have a surgical requirement to update gender markers on birth certificates, and four require it for updating driver’s licenses, according to Olivia Hunt, policy director for the National Center for Transgender Equality. The states do not clarify what procedures they will accept.

Thirteen out of 50 states? Just a couple of years ago, the New England Journal of Medicine came out against the “harmful” sex designation on birth certificates, arguing they “offer no clinical utility, and they can be harmful for intersex and transgender people.” Just nip the problem at the source.

Here’s best-selling children’s author and stochastic terrorist Matt Walsh:


We get what the human rights groups are saying: You shouldn’t need to have surgery to be legally recognized as whatever gender you say you are — that’s torture. But they’re also admitting that surgery is painful and complex and leaves you sterile, so why does it seem to be so easy for minors to get puberty blockers and hormones and top surgery?
