Of the 21 members of the new group, at least half are trans. Others are affiliated with WPATH, and still others have "pioneered" medical sex changes, womb transplants, or child sex changes. The group includes two former presidents of WPATH, the World Professional Association for Transgender Health, which in their latest guidelines stated there should be no age-limit on sex changes for minors.
Ashley, a criminal law assistant professor at the University of Alberta is on board with that, believing that "puberty blockers ought to be treated as the default option" for all minors, regardless of gender identity, so that kids can "choose" their gender instead of growing up naturally and without intervention because natural development "strongly favours cis embodiement by raising the psychological and medical toll of transitioning."
"Puberty blockers structurally place transgender and cisgender hormonal futures in approximate symmetry," Ashley said. "Youth who take puberty blockers have their options wide open, their bodies unaltered by either testosterone or oestrogen. Although much remains unknown about the long-term effects of puberty blockers, limited empirical evidence and clinical experience make us more than justified in assuming that whatever risks puberty blockers have do not foreclose future life paths as much as undergoing puberty does."
"The guideline," WHO states, "will focus in 5 areas: provision of gender-affirming care, including hormones; health workers education and training for the provision of gender-inclusive care; provision of health care for trans and gender diverse people who suffered interpersonal violence based in their needs; health policies that support gender-inclusive care, and legal recognition of self-determined gender identity."
In other words, the WHO will be figuring out how to "increase access and utilization of" sex change surgeries for all people, including minors, cross-sex hormones, puberty blockers, medical staff using pronouns, encouraging sex change drugs and surgeries, eliminating sex-segregated wards in hospitals, eliminating sex-segregated domestic violence and rape crisis centers, forcing these things to be put into law, and the falsification of official documents to reflect gender self-ID not biological sex.
Ashley was "chosen by WHO technical staff among researchers with relevant technical expertise, among end-users (programme managers and health workers) and among representatives of trans and gender diverse community organisations."
Ashley claims that individuals should be able to access medical sex changes without having a mental health "gender assessment" prior to being referred to what Ashley calls "gender affirming medical care." Ashley speaks out against any intervention prior to giving individuals access to sex change drugs and surgeries.
Ashley's book "explores sexual arousal as a site of knowledge about the self and world." In it, Ashley "draws on their experiences as a transfeminine activist, academic, and slut to interrogate what it means to live in a gendered body in our difficult yet occasionally loving world."
The group will meet in Geneva, Switzerland in February to "examine the grading of recommendations assessment, development and evaluation (GRADE) evidence profiles or other assessments of the quality of the evidence used to inform the recommendations on the 5 above mentioned areas; interpret the evidence, with explicit consideration of the overall balance of benefits and harms; formulate recommendations, taking into account benefits, harms, values and preferences, feasibility, equity, acceptability, resource requirements and other factors, as appropriate; and suggest implementation considerations and highlight research gaps for the guidelines."
And the World Health Organization will do all of this without any voices dissenting to the practice of medically mutilating minors in service to the lie that a person can change sex.
