Breaking down the CASS Review with Jacob Thomas

Last month ‘The Cass Review’, an inquiry in the UK that was set up to look into how the NHS provided gender-affirming care to people under 18, was made public. It was said that the point of this review was to recommend improvements where necessary, but it was made clear immediately that it was actually the opposite.

Used by the anti-trans lobby to attack trans rights, even though medical professionals and Australian experts were clear that the review had no place in our countries legislation or the health profession, it’s being used as an example for why they felt being Trans was not okay and we needed to “Think of the children” – especially in mainstream media.

But if we are talking facts and not fiction, how exactly was a review like this even able to get to the point that it’s seen as something credible.

To help us break this down, we are joined this morning by Jacob Thomas, who, amongst other things is a PhD student at ARCSHS at La Trobe University.
