In an extensive piece written by Azeen Ghorayshi and published Monday, The New York Times reported on how transgender “top surgeries” for minors have become a growing phenomenon. When reporters say top surgeries, they often mean mastectomy — the total removal of female breast tissue — though The Times’ article never uses this word.
For boys who want to transition to girls, top surgery means breast implants.
The Times article clearly frames these surgeries on teens as a positive development — with criticism of the surgeries left to the end of the piece, which most readers aren’t likely to reach.
One hospital, Kaiser Permanente Oakland, carried out 70 top surgeries in 2019 on teenagers aged 13 to 18, up from five in 2013, according to researchers who led a recent study.
This number is likely even higher today, given the explosion of transgender identity in young people and teens in just the past few years.
According to a survey by The New York Times: “Eleven clinics said they carried out a total of 203 procedures on minors in 2021, and many reported long waiting lists. Another nine clinics declined to respond, and six said that they referred patients to surgeons in private practice.”
These surgeries are happening. But as far as the depth and scope, what is public knowledge may be only the tip of the iceberg.

No one can have this surgery and believe in a faithful creator. And since these surgeries, at least on women, are irreversible, the great danger is that the rejection of the Creator would also be irreversible. A frightful possibility it is, for those who have the surgery and those who promote it. I fear it would be better for a millstone be hung around their neck than any of these be caused to stumble.
Kaiser, the mutilations you are perpetrating, are permanente.

Cant’ wait for the personal injury attorneys to pull out their knives and forks. Can’t be too big of a blood bath and I really hope Kaiser gets sued back to the stone age.
85% of these kids change their minds when they hit puberty. Thats why there is such a push to change your young child’s sex now before puberty. It’s a cash cow and the children are suffering for it. These operations should be illegal in this country. You cannot change a person’s sex no matter what. The devil has come for your children dressed as doctors.
