Dr. Diane Ehrensaft, a California-based gender clinic director and medical school professor, has asserted that there are an “infinite” number of gender identities, including one she referred to as a “gender Tootsie Roll pop.”
Her Multiple Roles in the Healthcare Field
In the fields of medicine and psychology, Dr. Ehrensaft has long championed gender ideology. Her roles include serving as the director of mental health and chief psychologist at the University of California-San Francisco (UCSF) Benioff Children’s Hospital gender development center and as a professor at UCSF School of Medicine.
Her Presentation on Gender Ideology
In a slide deck presentation on gender ideology, which was reviewed by Fox News, Dr. Ehrensaft introduced the concept of a “gender Tootsie Roll pop” identity.
The ‘Gender Revolution’
She has previously dubbed her agenda “The New Gender Wars,” and she has also referred to it as a “Gender Revolution.”
She Advocates in Early Transitions
Dr. Ehrensaft advocates for early social transitions for children, asserting, “Gender comes in an infinite variety, and children should get to live in their affirmed gender at such time they know it.”
Among the various gender identities she listed are “Pangender Youth,” “Protogay Children,” “Prototransgender Youth,” “Gender Teslas,” “Gender Ambidextrous Children,” and “Gender Smoothies.”
Gender Can Be Influenced By Location
Her claims have raised eyebrows, including her belief that children can be “gender hybrids” and even possess identities influenced by different seasons and locations.
Rooted in Societal Culture
Dr. Ehrensaft contends that the root of gender pathology lies more in societal culture than within the child themselves.
Diagnosis of Gender Disorder is Cultural
She argues that a diagnosis of gender identity disorder pertains more to the broader culture rather than specifically to transgender youth.
Waiting Until Adolescence
Dr. Ehrensaft emphasizes a cautious approach, advocating for waiting until adolescence to draw conclusions about a child’s gender identity.
Impact of Negative Societal Reactions
Furthermore, she suggests that psychological and psychiatric challenges, if present, often stem from negative societal reactions rather than solely from individual issues.
Psychiatric Problems Are Secondary
“If present, individual psychological/psychiatric problems are often secondary to negative interpersonal and cultural reactions to a child,” she stated.
Says Children Need to Freely Express Themselves
She emphasizes the significance of enabling children to freely express their genders rather than imposing external dictates upon them.
