Episode 126: Mitigating the Damage with Jamie Reed

Last year, case manager Jamie Reed blew the whistle on the gender clinic that had employed her for almost four years. Today, she faces an even more frightening challenge: being a guest on the Heterodorx podcast. Jamie’s impeccable lefty credentials never prepared her for Corinna’s relentless sarcasm, let alone what she witnessed in the medical system: clueless endocrinologists, children making lifelong decisions about their fertility, untreated eating disorders, ignored red flags, young patients entering sex work, TikTok tics, medical harms, repeated “never events,” and the medical abandonment of detransitioners. We also discuss the personal and professional costs borne by whistleblowers, double standards in the press, alpacas (again), and Corinna’s geriatric cat. Jamie reminds us, “we are all broken”; Corinna reminds us, “give your gay money to Jamie.”

One thought on “Episode 126: Mitigating the Damage with Jamie Reed

  1. I started my transition at 19 by literally castrating myself. Because I wasn’t able to get through the gatekeepers because of my autism, and I didn’t have money to make someone else do that. And I have zero support. I knew no one that would help me in my transition. That was in the late 00’s in Eastern Europe.
    I’m not supposed to exist, according to anti-trans people. But I just had to look at a grown man to knew that I would rather die than look like that. I thought that testosterone was the ugliness hormone, and thus the main cause of being unlovable, lonely, unsuccessful and emotionally damaged.
    And I kinda still think that. But sadly, fetal testosterone plays an even bigger role in that than pubertal and post-pubertal testosterone. So yeah I’m a “disillusioned transsexual” too.
    Men are always the problem. Either the man inside, or the men outside.
