It is unclear how many trans people who have a sex change detransition. Dr Hakeem said trans activists often claim it is one per cent, but this was ‘made up’.
He added the reality is that no one knows, because sex changes are ‘the only medical or surgical intervention for which there is no follow-up data collected or follow-up studies’.
He said 26 per cent of his patients at the Tavistock and Portman regretted transitioning.
Dr Hakeem said: ‘They are left in this situation of being adults with no genitals who the services don’t want to see and the trans community disowns.
By saying trans, Dr Hakeem said, ‘You’re lumping [transexuals] together people who have fetishes – men who get excited about wearing women’s clothes, and then men who fantasise about having a vagina and breasts.’
He added: ‘Kids are all identifying as trans or non-binary.
‘It’s become a new subculture. I was a post-punk goth. The current subculture is not a medical condition.
‘They are not really trans, it’s just the cool thing to do. When I was a teenage goth there was no goth identity clinic, luckily.
Dr Hakeem said it was completely normal for a child to question their gender.
However, instead of asking children why are thinking that, many people are simply agreeing with them, or ‘affirming’ their choice.
He said: ‘There’s a big push for affirmation only. Affirmation is not therapy, it’s a form of grooming.
‘We cart them off to gender clinics and physically castrate them.
‘Proper therapy is asking the child how they came to that conclusion, not just to say “yes you are [trans]”.
‘There’s this myth that people are born in the wrong body.’
He added that the existence of scores of different genders was ‘nonsense’.
‘It’s not evidence based. They have captured schools, the police, universities.
‘It’s a bit like people in a cult. They believe it. They are not psychopathic, malicious people.
‘They have been scared into believing his. If you’re not with them you’re against them.
