One transgender care doctor loses license while another is vindicated — sanity prevailed in both cases

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

The Ontario College of Physicians and Surgeons received two complaints about Dr. James Martin in 2016 during a time when, according to CTV News, he was seeing about 30 patients per week at his practice focused on transgender care and hormone replacement therapy.


In the first complaint, when an adolescent female to male transgender patient came in seeking a mastectomy, Dr. Martin prescribed cross-sex hormones at the first visit without a mental health assessment. The second complaint stems from an adult patient who was prescribed cross-sex hormones, again, after the first appointment.

Martin has been stripped of his medical license and fined $6,000.

On the flip side, Dr. Kenneth Zucker received a $500K payout and apology from CAMH after he was accused of abuse and practicing conversion therapy and subsequently fired from his post at the Family Gender Identity Clinic.

Zucker denied the allegation, saying he was treating each patient on a case-by-case basis, using a wait and see approach for minor children rather than offering immediate medical intervention.

Zucker was right and was vindicated, while Martin was rightfully stripped of his ability to practice medicine anywhere, ever again.

Today, I’ll show you why science supports Zucker and those doctors who don’t reach for the scalpel and the prescription pad every time a child struggling with their sexual identity comes through their door.

There's a great irony in an entire movement that’s dedicated to the idea that gender and sexuality are fluid, requiring doctors and scientific studies to affirm and solidify gender differences through surgery and chemicals, rendering the differences permanent and not fluid.

This week, at least in medicine, common sense prevailed; a rare thing in 2018.

This Brave New World of the progressive lefties we’re being forced to live in is really, pretty much a dirty nightmare – with degenerates – and getting worse!
I can’t tell at this point whether there will be revolution or capitulation…

I am not really entirely sure about the rights and wrong of this trans stuff. Some trans genders are perfetly happy with their decision to transition. The question here is really how well thought out the trans person is when they want to transition.
_______________________________________________________________________________
At he risk of coming across as arrogant and a know-it-all, I AM sure about this nonsense. What percentage of transitioned people are happy? What are you basing your statement on? Our extended family has a transitioned person and heshe is not at all happy. Heshe is miserable and still as uncertain as ever and does not work and is unproductive in every way. One example for me but I have never seen any of these media exposed heroes who look truly happy.

In years gone by such uncertainty was considered a mental problem that required counselling and therapy to align one’s feelings with reality. Now- due to PC- all perversions and psychological problems are “options”. Those who have these problems go into politics and demand they be normalized and be enshrined as party platforms.

This is typical of a society in decline. We are a mirror image of Rome. Just more technology to mask the reality. A citizen of Rome wrote about this and it’s cause: “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. PROFESSING TO BE WISE, THEY BECAME FOOLS, and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures. Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful.

I have a prediction, These trans kids will grow up and regret being forced this gender fluidity narrative. And next thing you know, there will be some huge ass lawsuit against the system. It will be the tax payer that will be forking over money.

Has the law changed with respect to doctors losing their licenses? I remember that 30 or 40 years ago, a doctor could lose his license in the province where he was practicing, say Ontario, and then just move to another province and resume practicing there. Have the rules changed so that the medical license is national, rather than provincial?

Even if licenses are national instead of provincial, that isn’t going to stop the bad eggs from moving to another country to practice there. It’s my impression that doctors are in high demand EVERYWHERE and the new country may not make much effort to verify the behaviour of an applicant in Canada.

Just read about a case of a 6 yo boy in the local paper . . . . completely insane.
No 6 yo thinks he wants to be a girl all by himself . . . he had to be groomed and conditioned to the concept, way beyond anything he could understand.
Up until a few years ago this was considered a Mental Health issue, then a group of LA Shrinks decided it was real. That flies in the face of real Science and Biology . . . . plus the fact that a very high % of post op folks commit suicide is evidence of mental issues.
