Top Transgender Health Group Quietly Removes Age Recs for Minors

The organization widely considered to be the gold standard on transgender health care has removed its age recommendations for minors to receive hotly debated transgender medical interventions from its guidelines — and it won’t explain why. 

The World Professional Association for Transgender Health published a correction to its Standards of Care 8th Edition this week, removing those sections on “suggested minimal ages for gender-affirming medical and surgical treatment for adolescents.”

Activists, media, and Democrats often use the phrase “gender affirming” to describe more grisly sounding top and bottom surgeries, like removing a biological female’s breasts or removing a biological male’s genitals, sculpting a fake penis on a biological female, facial feminization or facial masculinization, as well as puberty blockers, social affirmations, and hormones.
