Children’s Hospital Boasts ‘Gender-Affirming’ Hysterectomies – Opinion


A pediatric hospital might be able help you if your friend or relative needs a hysterectomy.


Though it might surprise some, Boston Children’s Hospital (BCH) offers the service as part of its “gender” care. The medical center — whose logo portrays a woman holding a baby — boasts a Center for Gender Surgery.


The official website:



Gender dysphoria refers to a problem with your identity and/or the gender that you were born into. You may experience significant distress and discomfort. The Center for Gender Surgery at Boston Children’s Hospital offers gender affirmation surgery services to eligible adolescents and young adults who are ready to take this step in their journey. This is the country’s first major pediatric hospital to have a center like this.



BCH proud to be the first



We are the only pediatric center that specializes in transgender patient surgery. We have a skilled team that includes specialists from plastic surgery, endocrinology and nursing. They also offer gender management and social work to help transgender teenagers and young adults. Our experienced anesthesia team works to provide culturally sensitive care to the gender-diverse community. By partnering with the hospital’s nationally recognized Gender Management Service (GeMS), which provides a range of medical options for transgender youth, we help young people with gender identity concerns transfer seamlessly to surgical care if and when they are ready.



Services offered, to “people who are stable in their gender identity” in accordance with the World Professional Association for Transgender Health:



  • Breast augmentation

  • Chest reconstruction

  • facial harmonization

  • vaginoplasty

  • metoidioplasty

  • Phalloplasty


“Other gender affirmation surgeries” are touted, and a viral BCH video reveals just such a thing. In the ad, a woman captioned as “Frances Grimstad, MD, MS” explains:



“Gender-affirming hysterectomy is very similar to most hysterectomies that occur. A hysterectomy itself is the removal of the uterus, the cervix — which is the opening of the uterus — and the fallopian tubes, which are attached to the sides of the uterus.”



Not all “gender care” will scoop out the ovaries. However, there are some that will.



“Some gender-affirming hysterectomies will also include the removal of the ovaries, but that’s technically a separate procedure called a bilateral oophorectomy. And not every gender-affirming hysterectomy includes that, and people who are having gender-affirming hysterectomies do not have to have their ovaries removed.”

The transgender movement has reached all sectors of society and has been transforming quickly. Until relatively recently, everyone was nonbinary — people did not have any “gender” at all. The term, as you’re likely aware, was grammatical. Then it was decided “gender” was a better word than sex. Then it was revealed that gender was simply a social construct. We were then told that gender and sex are two distinct things and each could mean the opposite within the binary system. Next, it was said that “gender” can mean anything at all — infinitely beyond that of man and woman. And lately, we’ve come so far that the wokest of all is the least woke, too: Our most advanced gender practitioners are now nonbinary; the circle is complete.


It seems that the latest version of gender theory is diametrically opposed to the idea that gender can be socially constructed. The best I can tell, all stereotypes have been declared correct and steel-enforced; if you like to wear men’s shirts and pants, for instance, that makes you a man. A hysterectomy would be necessary. At the Children’s Hospital.


To be clear, Politifact claims BCH isn’t giving young kids hysterectomies:



[B]oston Children’s Hospital doesn’t provide hysterectomies for children. … To qualify for a gender-affirming hysterectomy…patients must be 18 or older and must have a letter from a medical doctor stating they have “persistent, well-documented, gender dysphoria.”



As pointed out by the outlet, BCH stipulates that surgeries are for “adolescents and young adults.” However, per Merriam-Webster, “adolescence” begins at puberty.


BCH’s site does list 18 as the minimum age for genital surgery:



Patients over 18 years old cannot have genital surgery.



Is a hysterectomy considered “genital surgery”? Either way, given our current trajectory, America isn’t likely far from “gender-affirming” hysterectomies for children.


At that point, some may assume it’s as far as we can go. But they’ll be wrong:
