What is happening to the The American Academy of Pediatrics?

Pediatric care, 1960

Back on June 9, Muldoon wrote a great post about the American Academy of Pediatrics, entitled The Moral Abdication of The Academy. I encourage you to re-read it. Here's a short excerpt:

While certainly the AAP and its various sub-committees have been instrumental in many advances in the medical and surgical treatments of major medical problems affecting children, the organization has a less savory side.

When I began my pediatric training in the mid 1980s it was expected as a matter of course that pediatric residents would automatically join the AAP. It was axiomatic that "pediatrician = AAP member". The mantra in those days was that we were to be "advocates for children". The pediatrician was to utilize his expertise to enhance, fortify and augment parents' ability to raise healthy children. The pediatrician and the parents, as a team, endeavored to help children become functioning adults, with well-rounded physical, mental and social capabilities. We were taught to respect the cultural and ethnic background of each family. Somewhere along the way, there began a shift from augmenting and enhancing, to overruling and usurping parents.

The AAP issues numerous policy statements, intended to address particular pediatric health issues authoritatively, from a position of being subject matter experts. These policy statements originally served as 'guidelines' for pediatricians, but have evolved to become the 'standard of care' for general pediatricians in their daily practices. AAP positions are cited as gospel and deviations from them are shunned. Busy pediatricians nearly always defer to the expert position, as the path of least resistance. Also, AAP statements are not just aimed at practicing pediatricians. More and more they are aimed at public policy makers, legislators and government agencies. I have been noticing some unsettling trends and techniques among the AAP's statements. Let's look at a few examples.

The examples Muldoon gives fall into four categories. I am afraid that there are a couple of new, specific illustrations since Muldoon wrote that post. Let's see how well these fit into the categories Muldoon set forth:

EXAMPLE #3: Intentional distortion and misrepresentation of statistics.

The American Academy of Pediatrics sponsors a medical journal, Pediatrics, which published a paper on August 3 which purported to dismiss the key points of Abigail Shrier's book, Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters. The lead author of the paper is Jack Turban. I thought it would be a good idea to watch Shrier's Twitter feed for responses. And they came:

I'm so frustrated major journals like Pediatrics allow activist clinicians to overclaim and distort. It doesn't help trans people in the long run to flood the zone with shoddy science.

2/ To take one of many examples, this paper argues that from 2017 to 2019, the % of adolescents identifying as trans *dropped by a third*. Does anyone, anywhere think this is true? Jack Turban doesn't -- in July of 2021, in a sworn statement, he endorsed the idea of a rise.

This came in before the Pediatrics paper: The Beginning of the End of 'Gender-Affirming Care'? Is this one reason the AAP published a new paper?

Britain is closing the infamous Tavistock Centre. Finland and Sweden have radically revised their treatment guidelines. But American doctors are advertising surgeries to children on TikTok.

A major refutation to the Pediatrics piece came in yesterday . I am no statistician, but I have heard some statisticians defend statistical programs. And the logical and statistical arguments used in this paper just don't meet minimum standards. Leor Sapir writes in City Journal:

A new study in the journal Pediatrics sets out to refute a central claim made by critics of pediatric gender transition: that social pressure rather than organic processes is the major cause of transgender self-identification among youth. Among the study's authors is Jack Turban, an oft-quoted proponent of "gender affirming care" (GAC) and propagator of the affirm-or-suicide myth.

Pediatrics, recall, is the journal that published Jason Rafferty's thoroughly debunked 2018 article purporting to find conclusive evidence that alternatives to GAC are futile and harmful. That article has become Exhibit A in efforts by policymakers to promote GAC and is widely cited by activist groups working with schools to make (iatrogenic) "social transition" easier for students. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), which publishes Pediatrics, has spent the past few years suppressing petitions from members to conduct a thorough review of the evidence on this issue. According to the Society for Evidence-Based Gender Medicine, Michael Biggs, a U.K. researcher who has published on this topic, submitted a rebuttal to the AAP, which the organization refused to publish (offering no explanation). It is becoming increasingly clear that AAP's policy on this issue is "no debate."

This is very disturbing. "No debate" makes this professional organization sound like a grievance studies department in a university.

Turban takes aim at the two key claims driving the social-genesis approach. The first, known as the social contagion hypothesis, is that adolescents adopt a transgender identity in response to social cues and pressures. This phenomenon was first documented in a 2018 study by Lisa Littman and inspired Abigail Shrier's book Irreversible Damage. Its plausibility has since been strengthened by clinicians working in the field. According to some proponents of the contagion hypothesis, the effect exists mostly or even exclusively among teenage girls. Relying on a supplemental questionnaire adopted by 16 states on the CDC's biennial Youth Risk Behavior Survey, however, Turban finds that more boys than girls identified as trans in 2017 (1.5 boys for every girl) and 2019 (1.2 boys for every girl). Thus, he concludes, the contagion hypothesis is false.

This is an astonishing leap of logic. First, the supplemental questionnaire asks respondents whether they self-identify as transgender. It gives them four options: yes, no, I don't know, and I don't understand the question. Turban includes only those who said yes (2.4 percent in 2017, 1.6 percent in 2019). He leaves out those who answered, "I don't know," a far more numerous category (4 percent). . .

Second, the supplemental questionnaire also asks respondents what their "sex" is. Turban assumes that respondents understand this second question to mean "sex assigned at birth" rather than "gender identity," and cites three studies to confirm that that is how teenagers "are likely to understand" the word "sex." Yet the first two citations say nothing of the sort, and the third only weakly hints in that direction. No less damning, the researcher who developed the questionnaire for the CDC has herself emphasized the "uncertainty as to whether transgender students responded to the sex question with their sex or gender identity."

Third, Turban's claim about the sex ratio is inconsistent with existing data, which clearly show a strong predominance of girls over boys. These trends have been documented in peer-reviewed research, are internationally observed, and have remained fairly steady over the past decade or so. By contrast, Turban's data are solely from the U.S., sample only one-third of states (Turban mentions 16 states, but it appears that the actual number of states collecting data is even lower), and focus only on two specific years. . .

There is much more at the link. Do you think this AAP-sponsored paper fits Muldoon's characterization of "Intentional distortion and misrepresentation of statistics"?

EXAMPLE #4: Expanding the definition of childhood while also granting autonomy to immature individuals

This is part of what Muldoon wrote:

At its inception, the field of Pediatrics self-described as the medical care of children. As time passed, further subcategories of childhood emerged. Advances in newborn care and prevention of common infectious diseases led to a re-categorization into Newborns, Infants and Children. In the 1980s, further expansion defined the transitional phase from child to adult as a unique category, and Adolescent Medicine was born. Now, more recent articles from the AAP speak of Newborns, Infants, Children, Adolescents and Young Adults. Mission creep aside, this has two results. One, it expands the definition of childhood even further, and two, it blurs the line between childhood and adulthood.This creates the ironic situation where childhood is extended well into the 20's, while simultaneously granting pre-teens the autonomy to make life-changing decisions about sexuality and sexual development, such as puberty blockers, male or female hormone enhancement, or surgical genital mutilation.

For decades, Adolescent Medicine specialists have planted and nourished a notion of autonomy and confidentiality between the adolescent and the physician. There comes a point however, when claiming to affirm a pre-teen or teen's feelings or self-image (no matter how delusional it may be) comes into conflict with the parents' lifelong commitment, rights, and responsibilities as the guide for that youth's development from child to adult. At some point, a physician as counselor encouraging a youth to reject the culture, traditions and mores of his/her parents drives a wedge between child and family.

This is happening NOW:

July 18, An Open Letter to the American Academy of Pediatrics:

We write to you from Genspect, an international and non-partisan organization which represents thousands of parents of gender dysphoric children, adolescents, and young adults, as well as trans people, detransitioners, clinicians, and allied groups. We want our children to be affirmed as whole human beings, and we want them to be treated with evidence-based interventions which ensure that benefits outweigh risks. We are very concerned that the AAP is currently representing only one set of views on how best to help our children thrive--namely both social (names, pronouns, etc.) and medical transition (puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, surgeries), which the AAP refers to as "affirmative care." Many of our children have received this care and are anything but thriving.

This has propelled us to closely read the studies that support these treatments, and we have found that what is claimed about the studies is not at all what the results actually show. . .

. . . We now have several independent systematic reviews of evidence that show that the benefits of these treatments are far from certain. However, the evidence of risks --such as harms to bones and the cardiovascular system, effects on the brain and other organs, sexual difficulties, and a future inability to have kids--are mounting, as evidenced by a growing number of studies. Several countries have now acted on this new information, including Sweden, where "it has been decided that hormonal treatments (i.e., puberty blocking and cross-sex hormones) will not be initiated in gender dysphoric patients under the age of 16. For patients between ages 16 and 18, it has been decided that treatment may only occur within the clinical trial settings approved by the EPM (Ethical Review Agency/Swedish Institutional Review Board). The patient must receive comprehensive information about potential risks of the treatment, and a careful assessment of the patient's maturity level must be conducted to determine if the patient is capable of evaluating, and consenting to, the treatment."

Additionally the UK is undertaking a multi-year review of its gender transition program over concerns that harms outweigh benefits. An official interim report distanced itself from the "affirmation model" by emphasizing that this model of care "originated in the USA" and signaling that change is coming to Great Britain.

So, is the UK scapegoating the USA, or are the activists pushing "gender affirmative care" really worse here?

We have recently become aware that five pediatricians submitted a resolution (#27) to urge the AAP to do a thorough and systematic evaluation of the available evidence and to update the 2018 AAP position paper Ensuring Comprehensive Care and Support for Transgender and Gender Diverse Children and Adolescents, which incorrectly promulgates the notion that "gender affirmative" psychosocial and medical interventions are the only acceptable treatment for gender dysphoric youth. This resolution is timely: thousands of young adults are coming forward on Detrans subreddit and other social media platforms describing their regret. Why is this happening? A recently published peer-reviewed publication warned that the original "Dutch" protocol that is now used to treat dysphoric youth suffers from significant methodological limitations and is not applicable to most of the current cases: namely youth with post-puberty onset of gender dysphoria complicated by mental health or neurocognitive difficulties.

Many Genspect parents have observed such a sudden trans identification in their children, often emerging after an intense and obsessive period of consuming narrowly-focused social media content and watching their friends, one by one, announce a trans identity. Moreover, many of our children suffer from psychological comorbidities . . .

It is long past due for the AAP to address this issue, and we were pleased to see that Resolution 27, introduced by several AAP pediatrician members, finally addressed this. However, we were very disappointed to learn that the AAP leadership chose to specifically disallow pediatrician comments on Resolution 27, omitting it from the list in the link sent to pediatricians soliciting their comments. We understand that this is due to a "new rule" that "unsponsored" resolutions cannot be commented on. It is alarming that not a single chapter or committee within the AAP was willing to "sponsor" a resolution that asks to conduct a non-partisan and systematic review of evidence in pediatric gender medicine - something the AAP has never done. It is even more alarming that the AAP appears to be preemptively suppressing debate by not allowing comments on "unsponsored" resolutions, a rule that did not exist last year when a similar "unsponsored" resolution got many supportive pediatrician votes and comments. . . (emphasis mine)

The entire letter is great. This thread includes a link to an additional detailed rebuttal to the current AAP policy statement on trans-kids (read to the end of the thread for cautions concerning pedophilia); notes on international scandals in the field and ways that pediatricians and others can help change the current situation. Responses to the AAP from pediatricians and others are needed soon.

Does it appear that the AAP is continuing its practice of "Expanding the definition of childhood while also granting autonomy to immature individuals", as Muldoon put it back in June?

10 re: granting autonomy to immature individuals --

A few years ago I was shocked to learn that in Oregon, 13 year olds are allowed to make final decisions about their health care, even in hospital.

But seeing what has been transpiring across the nation, I now understand that is just one more step to the final goal: legalizing sex with minor children.

"If a 13 yr old can decide their health care, why can't s/he decide to choose sexual relations with a 40 year old?"

The Dutch lowered the legal age to something like 13 back in the 70s. They raised it back up again (to what I don't know, and I'm not googling that). I wonder how many children were irreversibly damaged by that experiment.

I am now being forced to revisit that conclusion and come to the late realization Voegelin was 100% correct. This bullshit is exactly like Alchemy/ Gnostic beliefs, a core part of which is the belief that the division of The Human into two separate genders is unnatural, and that Alchemy can create a union of the sexes in a single, superior being.

29 So what are the AAP protocols and research about other body dysmorphias like anorexia? Have they even attempted to research any of it. 'Peer pressure' as a phenomenon has intensified beyond any imagination (aside from us SF nerds) and it doesn't seem that issue is researched at all either.

Most of the kids I knew in the 90s - 00s who declared they were 'gay' were fashionistas. I think of the kids I knew, only one ended up being truly gay.

34 Yes; We had a doctor who made house calls for very short time in the mid 1960's. Then he had a house at the bottom floor of his house. He was very good.

The pediatrician who usually treated my son in a regular office must have been in his mid seventies or older back then in 2000 and following. He had started the practice and stayed after the normal retirement age because he really enjoyed his work and liked kids. I never asked him because transgenderism wasn't an issue even then but my impression was he would be totally appalled by the idea of transgenderism and horrified and enraged about the mutilation of kids.

80 It actually makes sense to me for doctors do house calls. That way you don't have to bring sick people into an office. I do understand why it's much more efficient to have an office if you have a big practice

It also matters that you have a place for all the modern diagnostic equipment, blood work, etc. (Assuming you aren't just sent off to a specialist.) Although, when I had young kids, 99% of the time the ped looked in their ears and pronounced that they had an ear infection, which I already knew.

119 According to a now-deleted Instagram post from Eli Erlick:

There are over 20 states trying to criminalize hormone therapy, particularly for trans youth. So, my friends and I had an idea: sending out our extra prescriptions around the country. If you need hormones, I’m working with a distribution network to get you access. Everything is free, no questions asked. We have hundreds of doses of testosterone, estradiol, and spironolactone available right now. All are prescribed by doctors and unused. Each package comes with information on dosage, obtaining bloodwork, etc. I realize this is only a band-aid solution: we need full access to affirmative medical care from professionals immediately. However, missing a single dose of hormones can be devastating (especially for trans teens and those new to hormones)! These laws are outrageous and I can’t wait for them to be overturned. In the meantime, DM me if you need HRT or if you have overprescribed hormones you’d like to send out.

I was going through some old photos yesterday and came across a picture of me and my wife in full battle regalia. She was in a full-length gown, up hair-do, pearls, gorgeous. I was in my dress blues, with, yep-- a bow tie. Considerably less gorgeous. We were attending a formal military dinner at a joint US-Hungary medical conference shortly after the Wall came down (1991-ish); at Lake Balaton in Hungary. Last time I ever wore a "tuxedo" equivalent. Last time I wore a bow tie. I may still have it stuck in the back of a drawer. So to answer your question: one.

we chanced upon an awesome, hugely talented guitarist one day in Margate NJ. We took a day trip to the shore and ended up at a beach bar called The Greenhouse.

This guido was coming up and down the stairs, I thought he was the bouncer, or maybe a collector for the boss. Anyway on one of his trips up the stairs I saw him carrying equipment. "Oh, he's setting up for the band".

No. He *was* the band. Finally, I saw him tuning his guitar. And when he started to play, all of us at the table were stunned. I can't even describe this dude. His style, his proficiency at the instrument, his selection of material...all combined to create a really unexpected jewel of a show. His "home base" style is flamenco, or gypsy, but he morphs it and twists the sound into all forms, even disco!

His name is Gypsy Joe Vlado. I have no idea when or where he plays next, because his website is shite.

I told him, "when we came here for pizza, none of us ever expected we would be treated to world class music".

I know roughly 2/3 missed multiple days for shot side effects, and a solid 15% or so had to go to ER/urgent care for themselves or a family member, sometimes multiple times (!) - but apparently we've been having people stroke out and be hospitalized for weeks, and they just can't hide it anymore.

My first experience with telemedicine in a Zoom style call was less then great. I could never get an answer as to whether they would write an antibiotic prescription for me based on my word. I've had Lyme disease twice and know the symptoms. I've never had the 'tell-tale' rash. Fever and brain fog were the two common symptoms.

My own father had Lyme but the Dr told him he didn't. A couple of days later he had Bells Palsy.

So the government is watching out for us by discouraging the use of antibiotics, in the process making it difficult for those truly in need. Is their anything the government doesn't fvck up?

Decent folk, the oldsters don't smile much and they don't like following regulations if they can ignore them. Meth issues in the community there just like everywhere else.

Posted by: Kindltot at August 06, 2022 12:31 PM (xhaym)"

Company has steadfastly dodged any kind of mandate - they make way too much money to play around like that - but leadership has gone full throttle woke in the last few years, so they pushed the jabs heavily. We have a super heavy population of "I LOOOOVE SCIENCE" posers so they all jumped on it.

Even if they're moonbats it's rough to watch people you know and work with get their shit wrecked with side effects, or from getting bad cases of COVID 2-3 times (which is also happening a lot - they all thought their shots were a magical talisman and behaved accordingly, and at best they did nothing).

Indiana on Friday became the first state in the nation to approve abortion restrictions since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, as Governor Eric Holcomb quickly signed legislation creating a near-total ban on the procedure shortly after lawmakers approved it.

The ban, which takes effect Sept. 15, includes some exceptions. Abortions would be permitted in cases of rape and incest, before 10-weeks post-fertilization; to protect the life and physical health of the mother; and if a fetus is diagnosed with a lethal anomaly. Victims of rape and incest would not be required to sign a notarized affidavit attesting to an attack, as had once been proposed.

Under the bill, abortions can be performed only in hospitals or outpatient centers owned by hospitals, meaning all abortion clinics would lose their licenses. A doctor who performs an illegal abortion or fails to file required reports must also lose their medical license — wording that tightens current Indiana law that says a doctor “may” lose their license.

Family pediatrician came by trolley and then walked to our row house when a baby of the family was extremely ill. He stayed 3 days.

Pediatricians also spoke their minds to parents & the parents usually followed the advice. Had a 'heart problem' as a kid & the doctor said she'll learn to live with it, stop spoiling her. (Oh how mom loved that!)
Shots were from public clinics, including in-school clinics. We had school physicals by drs. every few years with a nurse present. There was an eye test, weight taken, quick dental & ENT exam, glance at the child 'victim' standing in its underwear to see if anything looked amiss & with the dr commenting such as dirty ears, needs dental work, needs to lose weight, etc. School PE for sports? A physician came to school & parents paid $5 for the PE & State form.

At 18, we were adults. Anyone who became 20 in high school was removed.

The parents are on the hook for the bill, no? Or are the "doctors" advertising the surgeries doing it for free? Because if the parents are forking over the money rather than sitting the kid down for "a long talk" then the problem isn't just the doctors.

That exception will swallow the rule (and the incidence of "rape" and "incest" (ewwwww) will skyrocket next year!) unless there's also some law enforcement personnel nearby at the hospital who will investigate the claims. IMHO.

I got it to start but it isn't pulling strong up to it's top speed of 45-50 mph. I was barely able to get it to 35.

I grew up in the Bronx of the '50s and '60s. In the '50s, I fell out of bed and bloodied my head.
Dr. Raab came to our apartment at 11pm and put me and my Mother back together again.
No toys we're involved.

In '61, I fractured my wrist at school "playing" "touch" football. At 8pm that evening, Dr. Raab opened his office to x-ray and plaster-cast me.
Again, no toys we're involved.

Practices refusing to prescribe antibiotics has been going on in California for at least two decades. When I lived in SF, I had an upper respiratory infection and my doctor refused antibiotics (they billed me for nothing, in my opinion). So, I tried to tough it out for 3 months, working and quarantining myself in my office. When I got good and tired of no improvement, I went out of network, to one of those sketchy doctors who gave me a prescription (he also insisted on giving me a pap smear, the pervert, and snapped the button on my jeans before I said, "No! I just need the antibiotic, thank you.") Anyway, once on the meds, I felt better immediately. Never went back to any of those doctors after that.

And some older, long practicing physicians (especially with very specific practices, i.e., pulmonary, renal, etc) still see an occasion patient at home. In fact, when Covid vaccine 1st became available, there were physicians who went to certain patients early on to give the 'vaccines.'

My father was an ENT specialist, as well as holding a teaching position at CWRU in the 60's and 70's. He made house calls regularly. He was always on call...

My first GP, when I moved to Buffalo in 1980, made house calls. In one instance, he came to my house to drive me to the hospital himself (long story).

The common thread between the two cases: both men were from the old school of medicine, where house calls were part of the profession, and they were happy to do it.
