Sex assault case involving male nurse proves BC College of Nurses’ hypocrisy over gender, biological sex

"I thought sex was multidimensional and very complicated. Why were the women 'all highly vulnerable?' Anything to do with male violence against women?"

Amy Hamm, the Canadian nurse who is under investigation by the British Columbia College of Nurses and Midwives (BCCNM) for allegedly holding "transphobic" views is firing back at the regulatory body, pointing out hypocrisy in the way they handled a sex abuse case.

In October 2022, BCCNM concluded an inquiry into the conduct of former nurse Mark Mohun-Smith, who they say sexually harassed "several female patients" between 2017-2020. The board wrote that "the women were all highly vulnerable," as well as used "woman" and "female" interchangeably, which Hamm pointed out is antithetical to gender ideology.

"The @BCnursemidwife found a former (male) nurse sexually abused female patients. But what *is* a female, @BCnursemidwife?," she wrote on Twitter.

"I thought sex was multidimensional and very complicated. Why were the women 'all highly vulnerable?' Anything to do with male violence against women?," she added.

"Also looks like you conflated 'female' and 'woman' which is also a no-no, according to your own experts," she noted.

Hamm is a founding member of the Canadian Women's Sex-Based Rights (caWsbar) group, as well as a frequent contributor to The Post Millennial. Over the past six years, she has written and spoken about what she believes to be the harmful impact of gender-identity ideology on women and children and promoted other controversial figures in the movement like J.K. Rowling.

It was April 2022 when the investigation into Hamm's supposed "discriminatory" views began, and the hearings took place over the fall and winter into 2023. The Vancouver woman has been a nurse for over a decade and has no complaints against her job performance, but her role in the women's rights movement prompted the BCCNM to discipline her in several drawn-out hearings to determine if she has discriminated against patients for holding such views outside of work.

According to the nurse and her lawyer, Lisa Bildy, she is being persecuted for her beliefs.

"This case is fundamentally about speech: whether a nurse can publicly debate a topic that is as politically charged as this one; whether she can advocate on her own time for women's rights to not have intact male bodies in their prisons, changerooms, rape crisis centres, and sports teams, and for care to be taken not to rush children and adolescents into life-altering and permanent changes to their bodies," Bildy said in a statement to the National Post.

"She added, “But more broadly, this is a case about two irreconcilable worldviews that have come into conflict, and conflicts are best solved by discussion and debate, not censorship and punishment. The College is tasked with keeping patients safe and regulating the profession in the public interest. But professional misconduct must not be redefined to include speaking unpopular truths. To do so is to undermine the very foundations of liberal democracy."
