(PM.) The World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) has released its Standards of Care Version 8 (SOC8).
The widely-cited international body, which sets the guidelines for treating children and adolescents who believe themselves to be transgender, has added a whole chapter on the latest gender identity: Eunuch.
“Among the many people who benefit from gender-affirming medical care, those who identify as eunuchs are among the least visible” reads the opening line of chapter 9.
“Eunuch individuals are those assigned male at birth (AMAB) and wish to eliminate masculine physical features, masculine genitals, or genital functioning” it explains. “As with other gender diverse individuals, eunuchs may also seek castration to better align their bodies with their gender identity. As such, eunuch individuals are gender nonconforming individuals who have needs requiring medically necessary gender-affirming care”.
“Like other gender diverse individuals, eunuch individuals may be aware of their identity in childhood or adolescence,” the experts in transgender healthcare continue. “Due to the lack of research into the treatment of children who may identify as eunuchs, we refrain from making specific suggestions.”
An internationally-respected and supposedly scientific body referring to “children who identify as eunuchs” is concerning in and of itself, but even more so when looked at in the context of what the guidelines refer to as “contemporary eunuch-identified people.”
“While there is a 4000-year history of eunuchs in society,” healthcare professionals are told “the greatest wealth of information about contemporary eunuch-identified people is found within the large online peer-support community that congregates on sites such as the Eunuch Archive (www.eunuch.org), which was established in 1998.”
Following the hyperlink to eunuch.org takes you to a site with the warning: “If you are offended by adult material about castration … do not enter.”
WPATH recommends eunuch.org for more information, where a person can view a selection of “adult fiction”, including stories about “the castration of males of various ages”, in other words: child-castration pornography.
“Eunuch Archives hosts over 3,000 pieces of fictional child pornography that detail the rape, torture, and killing of children. In some narratives, children with stunted puberty are raped by doctors. In others, children are castrated by force as part of a sadistic sexual torture ritual,” reported Reduxx earlier this year.
