The Observatory of Ideological Discourses on Children and Adolescents challenges the National Consultative Ethics Committee on the impact of medical practices on children diagnosed with "gender dysphoria"

A new clinical entity that appeared in 2014 in the DSM-5, "gender dysphoria", has since given rise to medical (puberty blockers, hormonal treatment) and surgical (mastectomy in particular) practices involving the bodily integrity of young people children and teenagers.


We would like to alert the ethics committee to the irreversible nature of these interventions.

We would like to alert the ethics committee to practices that affect the future of these children and adolescents in their adult life.

We would like to alert the ethics committee to the consequences of a certain propaganda which is mediated through documentaries and social networks which tend to trivialize these social and medical transitions.

The potentially unequivocal and exclusive nature of the medical response thus made to the child asserting "gender dysphoria" leads to a useless, serious and potentially mutilating intervention.

These interventions have, in fact, an impact on their future psycho-affective life, on their physical health (complications of the treatments) and on their later fertility, which requires that they decide on practices for preserving their fertility at a very young age.

The intervention on healthy organs, as well as the solicited consent of these children and adolescents at an age when the developmental process is in progress poses crucial ethical and deontological problems that involve us all.


It seems to us, moreover, fundamental that their parents, who are in a position to give their authorization or not to these treatments, can be rigorously informed of the consequences of these treatments in the short and medium term. Networks of influence formed by certain associations, currently multiplied by social networks, do not seem to us to be in a position to provide sufficiently neutral and objective information.
