Group of Researchers/Clinicians Conclude No Biological Evidence to Support ‘Gender Identity’ Theory

Objectivity 4.9 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.8

A group of researchers and clinicians claim that there is no empirical evidence to support the popular theory of “gender identity.”  A statement in article from the Society for Evidence-Based Gender Medicine (SEGM) said, “… currently, there is no brain, blood, or other objective test that distinguishes a trans-identified from a non-trans identified person once confounding factors such as sexual orientation are controlled for.”  J. Cohn, an SEGM-affiliated researcher, addressed five myths outlined in the article refuting assumptions made in an influential “pro-affirmation” paper by a prominent gender doctor.  He warns that when perpetuating myths and inaccuracies, they will be mistaken by clinicians and patients as “facts.”
