The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital in Maine promotes services for "transgender children," offering life-altering drugs such as puberty blockers and hormone treatments, as well as how-to guides on genital "tucking" for boys and "chest binding" methods for girls.

Libs of TikTok posted a video on Twitter featuring a 9-year-old biologically male child who identifies as transgender and went through Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital's clinic. Erin Belfort, a psychiatrist at the clinic, said, "these kids aren't just kind of wishing to be the other gender I mean, they really come into my office and say, 'No, I am. I am not a girl or I am not a boy, this doesn't feel right.'"



She then stressed that it's "crucial for transgender children to get the proper support from their families and the medical community."



The video is from a 2016 piece by WMTW ABC News titled "Lucy's story: Transgender children in Maine, Program at Barbara Bush Children's Hospital helps guide transgender children" written by Tracy Sabol.

"Like so many 9-year-old girls, Lucy Tidd loves to dance," Sabol wrote. "She is a typical young girl, but Lucy was not always Lucy. She was born Benjamin Thomas Tidd in 2006."

"We noticed at a young age there was this tendancy to want to dress up, and want to do what I do everyday," said Tidd's mother Bridget.

Later in the video a pediatric endocrinologist at the hospital, Dr. Jerrold Olshan, said, "This isn't a choice in most individuals, this is probably biologically programmed." 

Olshan said "About one in four will attempt suicide, about half will consider suicide during adolescence and so our big goal is how do we help this population do better in the long run," citing the frequently debunked transgender affirm or suicide myth.

Evidence has emerged this year that treatment at gender clinics for children are actually increasing suicidal ideation.

The doctor's belief that gender ideology is "probably programmed" enabled the hospital to not only push chest binding and genital tucking, but life-changing drugs.





As Libs of Tik Tok writes, "Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital’s 'Gender Clinic' boasts that they provide puberty blockers and 'gender affirming' hormone therapy to children."
