There was something desperately wrong with the “Dutch Protocol” and “gender affirmation” model. Like any good doctor, Kaltiala and her colleagues published their findings. So successful was she in proving her point scientifically and medically that, in 2020, the Council for Choices in Health Care in Finland declared that studies singing the praises of “gender affirmation” were “biased and unreliable.”
(Emmy Griffin – The Patriot Post) Dr. Riittakerttu Kaltiala is a well-respected psychiatrist at Finland’s Tampere University Hospital. So well respected was she that in 2011 she was chosen to head up Finland’s first youth gender clinic. She has long been publishing her findings and documenting the various struggles of her patients, but now she is trying to get the attention of the American public.
Dr. Kaltiala has a piece in The Free Press that documents her experiences. Her tale is an echo of what sane and honest people have been reporting here in the U.S. too. Those other voices — which include journalist Abigail Shrier, whistleblower Jamie Reed, detransitioners, and even fellow medical professionals — have so far been largely written off by the wider culture as “bigoted” or “not a credible source.”
