The Infectious Myth - Psychological Dangers of Gender Affirmation with Oren Amitay

Oren Amitay is a Canadian psychologist, practitioner and university teacher, who has been outspoken about the dangers of gender affirmation, accepting someone’s claim that they are not their biological sex, rather than dealing with the other conditions and life factors that they are almost certainly dealing with. The vast majority of teenagers with gender dysphoria will normally ‘grow out’ of this by the time they are 20, but gender affirmation will encourage more of them to proceed to hormones and surgery, with lifelong health problems, and no possibility of returning to their original biological state. Amitay also talks about censorship, being kicked off twitter and out of the Ontario Psychological Association, and describes how many colleagues support him but are afraid to speak out. Despite this Amitay continues to advocate for an open discussion of the best psychological approaches to children and teens who in genuine distress due to their inability to accept their biological sex.
