Which twin has the false narrative?

BCH tries to convince us that it’s the victim here.

BCH does not and will not, it says fiercely, “perform a hysterectomy as part of gender-affirming care on a patient [that is, a girl] under the age of 18.” But it will on a girl 18 or older. It will also continue to refer to medically unnecessary hysterectomies as “part of gender-affirming care,” as if that category were as well-established and reliable and sciencey as how to mend a broken bone.

What if they’re wrong? What if the whole idea of “gender-affirming care” is just another fad like Recovered Memory or The Wandering Uterus?

BCH says with apparent confidence that the attention to their “gender-affirming care” is based on a “false narrative.” But what if the “narrative” isn’t false? What if it’s the claim that removing a healthy uterus is “gender-affirming care” that’s a false narrative?

If they’re lucky, climate change will render it all moot.
