The Sex-Change Lawsuits Begin

Chloe Cole, 18, is suing the medical professionals and facilities that aided and abetted her gender “transition” as a minor.

I was 15 when you cut into my body, ripped out my breasts, and stitched me back up like I was your rag doll. You are on the wrong side of history and will always be remembered as child butchers.

These are the powerful words of 18-year-old Chloe Cole, who was a victim of the transgender madness.

Cole was 13 when she started having troubles with her body. Anxiety, depression, body dysmorphia, speech difficulties, and autism characteristics greatly contributed toward her seeking a fix for her troubles. She found “answers” on social media, where “transgender” influencers led her to make a self-diagnosis. Her parents took her to Kaiser Gender Pathways Clinic in Oakland, California, for help.

The “help” that these medical professionals provided was the infamous “gender affirmation” method of dealing with Cole’s struggles. Perhaps if a mental health professional had talked to Cole about her life and gotten to the bottom of her struggles, this story would have ended differently. That did not happen. Cole was fast-tracked down the “gender transition” pipeline, and at age 13 she was put on puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones. At 15 she was butchered. Her treatment continued until her 17th year when she started her detransitioning journey.

Cole is on a mission to bring awareness to what was done to her. At the public announcement of a lawsuit last week, Cole declared her reasons for fighting: “Unfortunately, I am no longer alone in my pain and suffering.” I.e., other kids and their parents have reached out to her with their stories. She continued, “I am going forward in taking legal action because every second that goes by, more blood is spilled by the same individuals and medical centers that destroyed my body and childhood.”

Cole’s lawyer, Harmeet Dhillon, had this to say about the suit: “Chloe’s family sought medical treatment for her at Kaiser. Instead of caring for her and providing medically competent diagnoses and treatment, they permanently disfigured her for profit.”

Cole’s lawsuit is the first of its kind. Robert Weisenburger, an attorney who is one of Cole’s representatives, believes that lawsuits “would eliminate, in a significant way, the financial incentive to experiment on children in this way. And it would reduce the financial viability of operating these types of facilities. And successful malpractice lawsuits can affect licensure of doctors.”

This sentiment was shared by Dr. Stanley Goldfarb, board chair of Do No Harm, who also pointed out: “These large organizations are extraordinarily sensitive to what the lawyers tell them. That’s because most of them are self insured, so they have to put reserves down each year to cover any malpractice lawsuits that they may encounter. And if they had to now worry about a trial that might be 20 years out, for example, where they could be sued over not giving proper informed consent or not explaining the the potential complications of these gender related surgeries or medications, this would be a real chilling effect on any of these large institutions that house gender clinics.”

Stories of regret like Cole’s are a big part of the reason that the Tavistock Center — the UK’s largest gender clinic — shut its doors. Tavistock had been employing the “gender affirmation” method of dealing with gender-confused children for a decade. But instead of taking warning, gender clinics across these United States continue with their ideological and financially beneficial butchery of gender-confused minors.

Cole is the public face of these many children who are being manipulated and coerced into a life and series of medical decisions that do irreparable harm. Puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones have major side effects, and reproductive mutilation surgeries affect fertility and breastfeeding. Many minors who undergo these procedures end up regretting those decisions within five years.

Perhaps because she is still so young, that makes Chloe Cole such an important and powerful voice. However, it causes this mother’s heart to worry. She is still young and has a history of serious mental and emotional difficulties; the truly heinous mob of trans activists will violently threaten dissenters, as figures such as J.K. Rowling, Matt Walsh, and Libs of TikTok know firsthand.

Cole’s bravery in pursing this lawsuit and defying the activist mob that seeks to silence her is remarkable. She is a David facing Goliath. We wish her well and pray for her continued strength through this ordeal so that through her courageous efforts other children will be spared.
