Dr Helen Webberley (GenderGP) Interview in The Independent re GenderQuake Debate
30

R0wantrees · 08/05/2018 18:15

extract

"I have been very open about my individualised approach to the treatment of transgender patients, irrespective of age, and my firm belief that they should be able to access the support and medication they need in a timely and supportive manner, and where possible via their GP. In line with self-identification of gender, I firmly advocate informed consent and individualised care.

This has attracted a certain amount of media interest. So I was not surprised to receive an invitation to appear on Genderquake, part of Channel 4’s series of programmes which are described as an opportunity “to encourage and to enlighten public discussion about sexuality and gender identity”.

My initial response was entirely positive. There is an overwhelming need for informed debate round the topic of society’s approach to transgender people and how we can better support this marginalised group. As a medical professional who has had firsthand experience of meeting and treating more members of the transgender community than most in my position, I was keen to add my voice to the mix.
This changed rather abruptly after I dug a little deeper. I spoke to a GP registrar and LGBTQ+ advocate (Dr Adrian Harrop) who had also been contacted by Channel 4, as well as a number of friends, fellow trans advocates and members of the trans community. The overwhelming opinion was that this had the potential to be yet another orchestrated engineered battle between trans people and those who essentially deny their very existence."

If it isn't puff piece propaganda they dare not participate because people will talk about women's rights and safekeeping children.

I've seen that Harrop fellow all over the Twatter. He's um... something.

Gosh, her and all those other trans people invited and still she thought it was one-sided. Can't debate is more like it.

I can't believe Dr Adrian Harrop is a real Dr, he believes that men can be biological women. Looking at The Guardians Facebook page, and the comments under their gender quake article, there are people who think transgenders accept their biology and have no idea what they are claiming and want us to believe.

He's the self-appointed TERF-finder general. He looks very dimly upon women saying troublesome things.

Oh that Harrop dude is a testament to medical education.

He ha spent the day hunting down the woman who spoke out last night and bombarding the Green party with tweets demanding her removal from the party.

He then had the bare face cheek to bleat to Christian Jessen when a man retaliated by reporting him to GMC. Dick

Helen Webberley has lost her prescribing privileges for prescribing cross hormones to under 16s: one as young as 12.

I believe the suspension has been lifted following the investigation?? I think on another thread someone commented that there may still be some restrictions.

What is this crap about 'denying their existence'? who does that? I don't. I certainly know Munroe Bergdorf exists: constantly shouting loud enough to be heard the other side of the ocean.

I hope people do make a complaint to the GMC. Even if the GMC find nothing, it might stop the Drs haranguing women for 5 mins.

The only reference I can find to the outcome of the investigation is on her own website which I refuse to link to. It says that the investigation is ongoing until September but yes, she can still practise in the meantime.

Her partner also has prescribing privileges. I met one of her patients recently - under 16. I have reported it.

Dr Adrian Harrop is dangerous. He appears to hate women and wants to silence us. I am very concerned about his whole attitude. If someone is reporting him to the GMC then I congratulate them. I hope I don't ever end up under his 'care'.

Ugh, DOCTOR Harrop.

I wouldn't trust that dingleberry to look after my cactus for the weekend. He adores the fawning he receives on Twitter.

I see Dr Christian has started waving his pecks about now too.

It appears to be an euphemism for refusing to submit and obey.

Dr Harrop has spent all day encouraging others to abuse women, in the full and certain knowledge that women have been physically attacked simply for being in the wrong place at the wrong time near a bunch of similarly riled TRAs.

I do hope the GMC investigates him fully. I'm not usually one for people losing their jobs on the basis of their online rantings, but that man is dangerous to women and makes no bones about it.

Can anyone explain what this means, the purple one, from Young Green's Open Uni twitter account? Confused

Oops, ignore, part of the image was cut off on my screen. I thought it said "We don't fight for all women, we fight for no women" 🤣

Oh my god that actually made me feel sick, that those two can pat each other on the backs about how logical they are, and everyone else is just so backward

That is an exactly on-point and stinging response by @ThrupennyBit. Obviously they'll ignore it as being (i) non-woke, and (ii) by a woman.

I wish Harrop and Jessen would just go wank each other off and get off Twitter.
