Landmark Dutch Study Supports Child Sex Change; Medical Article Reveals Teen Death Following Vaginoplasty

Objectivity 4.9 | Credibility 4.9 | Relevance 4.9

The basis for the entire child sex change experiment hinged on a Dutch study in which one of the participants died as a result of puberty suppression as documented by a 2016 medical article.  The participant was an 18-year-old trans-identified male who was treated with puberty blockers by Dutch researchers at a very early age resulting in underdeveloped penile tissue.  Without sufficient penile tissue to create a “neo-vagina,” a more risky procedure was necessary in which part of the patient’s bowel was used.  A deadly strain of E-coli from the patient’s bowel led to necrotizing fasciitis, the investigation revealed.  Despite this, the Dutch study concluded that “vaginal reconstruction has a positive influence on the quality of life in (transgender) women.”
