Australia: Sex-Change Clinic Folds...

Australia's only sex-change clinic has been temporarily shut down and its controversial director forced to quit amid growing claims that patients with psychiatric problems have been wrongly diagnosed as transsexuals and encouraged to have radical gender reassignment surgery. At least eight former patients of the Gender Dysphoria Clinic at Melbourne's Monash Medical Centre believe they may have been misdiagnosed. Some have tried to commit suicide while struggling to live as the opposite sex after the irreversible operations.

But as the clinic has limited patient follow-up, it is difficult to determine how many patients may have been adversely affected by the surgery. Three former patients have recently taken legal action against Monash and the clinic's doctors.

Psychiatrist Dr Trudy Kennedy - who is being investigated by the state's medical board - says officials at Southern Health, which operates the service, told her she could no longer run the clinic she co-founded 34 years ago. The 73-year-old claims she is being made a scapegoat after recent legal action.

A former male patient who was 21 when he underwent surgery to become a women, was awarded damages after claiming Dr Kennedy misdiagnosed him as a transsexual in the late 1980s. Since the surgery, he has twice tried to take his own life and has undergone operations to reverse the operations he had. He says he will never be able to have children, is unable to work and feels like a "mutilated freak". In the past few weeks, a 66-year-old who also underwent surgery to become a woman following a diagnosis by Dr Kennedy, settled his claim out of court.

  1. This was another one of the physical devils experiment centers. This is why I try to eat healthy, get plenty of rest, exercise and stay stress free. It isn't always easy to do these things, but I try. This will keep your bodies in good shape and ward off DIS-EASE. Because when you body is not operating in full compacity, it is not at ease.

    My people start purchasing those self healing and natural cures books. You will discover that all these chemical medications is what is really making you sick.

    Doctors are nothing but salesman for these big pharmacutical companies. They (doctors) are the agents that get you to by their (pharm. co.) products.

    go to Youtube and type in DR. JEWEL POOKRUM. It is one big conspiracy.

    Why don't you grow up? Many blogger post words that are misspelled - it happens! Why are you tripping?

    Grace was born as a intersex / hermaphrodite. One day she will tell the truth and she IS related to ARSENIO HALL.

    Go ahead and create your own blog!

    There are hermaphrodite within Hollywood. The moderator has pulled many articles as proof and recovered some fascinating information that was written in late 1800's. This information was also published at Harvard University.

    How can you refute or even ignore this information?

    Honestly speaking, I don't have to comment on my own postings to support the “truth” within them.

    The information that streams throughout this "free blog" is from research and personal contacts within the industry.

    There are many like you who come here for the sole purpose of diverting the truth.

    As a result, you all have encouraged me to dig deeper and to turn more corners as I search to uncover the truth.

    In closing, I would like to thank you all for “Paying Attention” and “Speaking On It” through your comments.
