The Myth of Reliable Research In Pediatric Gender Medicine

A new study identifying flaws in gender medicine research demands urgent attention from the medical community

A new open-access publication, “The Myth of Reliable Research in Pediatric Gender Medicine,” focuses on the two Dutch studies that gave rise to “gender-affirmative” care for youth worldwide.
