Dr. Jason Wright of Columbia University and his colleagues penned the study, which was published in JAMA Open Network. They found that 4,552 individuals underwent gender surgery in 2016 and peaked to a total of 13,011 by 2019. This dropped slightly to 12,818 in 2020 – something the study authors attributed to the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Of the 48,019 patients who underwent gender surgery during the five-year period, "breast and chest procedures made up a greater percentage of the surgical interventions in younger patients." Meanwhile, "genital surgical procedures were greater in older patients."
According to Wright, the increase is likely due to the expanded insurance coverage for transgender care pushed during the Obama administration. Back in July 2014, former President Barack Obama also signed Executive Order 13672 that prohibited anti-LGBT discrimination.
Despite the medical establishment's defense of gender surgeries as beneficial, there is more than enough evidence stating that such procedures to "alleviate" gender confusion do more harm than good.
Last year, a female-to-male (FTM) transgender named Rylan decided to get a double mastectomy from a popular surgeon named Dr. Sidhbh Gallagher. The surgeon had been marketing her gender surgeries on social media under the "Yeet the Teets" branding.
But following a "top surgery" that went wrong, Rylan ended up almost dead from severe complications. In a TikTok video, the FTM transgender recounted experiencing post-operative complications that led to severe pain. It also necessitated the removal of a sizable section of necrotic, pus-filled tissue.

Rylan documented her experience on the video sharing site, including graphic images and videos of the surgery's aftermath. In the videos, she expressed deep regret about choosing Gallagher as her surgeon. Moreover, Rylan highlighted the lack of care from the "Yeet the Teets" surgeon during the recovery process.
She attempted to communicate with Gallagher over her post-surgery concerns, but the surgeon reportedly associated the issues with mere bruising and downplayed the severity of the situation.
The push to normalize transgenderism also involves brainwashing, as evidenced in the documentary film "Dead Name." The film featured three young people brainwashed and manipulated into destroying their bodies and identities to become their "true selves." The 2022 documentary exposes the horrors children experienced in the aftermath of gender surgeries.
As a response to the increasing number of such surgeries and to stop the exposure of children to early mutilation, more and more states in America are making their move to ban "gender-affirming" services – which, in reality, are actually destructive surgical procedures.
