The Trouble With Vanderbilt’s Pediatric Gender Clinic

Matt Walsh exposed it for exploiting and abusing kids, and now VUMC is in cleanup mode.

The whole shtick of gender-affirming care is one big exploitation scheme by healthcare providers. This has never been more obvious than now. Daily Wire podcast host Matt Walsh is an activist who exposes this grift, and he has done it again. After his groundbreaking documentary “What Is a Woman?” he and his team conducted a sting operation on Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC), which has a pediatric “transgender” clinic. It’s as bad as it sounds.

In a social media thread, Walsh systematically exposed the origins of this clinic. In 2018, VUMC decided to start the clinic because it could “make a lot of money.” According to one doctor caught on video, bottom surgeries for women and girls kept a similar clinic financially flush with cash. In yet another video, a doctor made threats against other doctors who had moral or religious problems with the clinic. Most insidious of all, VUMC “trans buddies” are in the rooms making sure that doctors are only providing gender-affirming care to potential patients.

When this was exposed and people went to look into it for themselves, the Vanderbilt clinic’s webpage suddenly returned a 404 error code. The page could not be found. For its part, Vanderbilt issued a statement refuting the bullying of doctors into compliance and justifying the “trans buddies” program and surgeries on minors because they obtained parental approval. The biggest red flag to anyone with half a brain is that if those videos and posts were in line with what Vanderbilt is now claiming in its statement, why take down the concurrent pages on its website? Answer: The videos speak for themselves, and they are undeniable as well as unjustifiable.

Vanderbilt is located in Nashville, and Tennessee is a very red state. When government officials found out what was going on, there was a conservative outcry. Tennessee Governor Bill Lee said: “The ‘pediatric transgender clinic’ at Vanderbilt University Medical Center raises serious moral, ethical and legal concerns. We should not allow permanent, life-altering decisions that hurt children or policies that suppress religious liberties, all for the purpose of financial gain. We have to protect Tennessee children, and this warrants a thorough investigation.” This sentiment was echoed by U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn and Tennessee House Majority Leader William Lamberth. Walsh has met with State Senator Jack Johnson and Representative Lamberth to begin crafting a bill “to shut down Vanderbilt’s child gender transition program and ban the practice in the state.”

The radical leftists are up in arms. Many of them reported Walsh’s social media thread and told Twitter and the FBI that it could lead to harm against VUMC.

Gender ideology is preying on our society. It preys on those with gender dysphoria and exploits them for money. It preys on our children who are impressionable by confusing them and turning them against their own bodies, their own self-interests, and their own families. Radical woke leftism encourages this divorce from reality. Radical leftism promotes hate as well as other predations that further marginalize the most vulnerable in society such as preborn babies, illegal aliens, women, the religious, and racial minorities. These radicals are backed by a president whose dangerous rhetoric got a teenaged boy mowed down by one of the radical’s acolytes.

It’s not the conservatives who are fomenting hate. That becomes more clear with each passing day.
