Jamie Reed, a self-described “queer” leftist woman married to a transgender man, worked as a case manager handling intake of patients at the Pediatric Transgender Center at Washington University School of Medicine at St. Louis Children’s Hospital for more than four years. In an exposé for The Free Press, Reed confirmed all of the fears that have been raised in recent years about the fast-tracking of children into irreversible medical treatments.

During her four years at the Transgender Center, Reed said she noticed a significant increase in teenage girls seeking to transition to male with comorbidities such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, eating disorders, obesity, autism, or autism-like symptoms.

“Until 2015 or so, a very small number of these boys comprised the population of pediatric gender dysphoria cases,” said Reed. “Then, across the Western world, there began to be a dramatic increase in a new population: Teenage girls, many with no previous history of gender distress, suddenly declared they were transgender and demanded immediate treatment with testosterone.”
