Kathy Lynn Rumer.DO is a GRS Surgeon in Ardmore PA, She has a long track record of questionable to downright horrific results when it comes to her patients. It has come to light recently that Rumer is suing two of her low income trans patients for blowing the whistle. Kathy Rumer has employed the help of a right wing legal team (Rogers Castor) to drag one of her patients to court next Monday (August 15th.) This patient’s medical records and personal information will be on full display to the public if this trial proceeds next week, worse yet. A Trump appointed judge (Chad Kenney) with a history of anti LGBTQ stances will be presiding over the case.
In a time when Republicans and far right groups are attacking abortion and trans rights this affront cannot stand. Kathy Rumer can no longer call herself an “ally” of our community when she is working with right wing lawyers to silence and intimidate her own patients.

Sex Assigned at Birth Ratio Among Transgender and Gender Diverse Adolescents in the United States
Representatives of some pediatric gender clinics have reported an increase in transgender and gender diverse (TGD) adolescents presenting for care who were assigned female sex at birth (AFAB) relative to those assigned male sex at birth (AMAB). These data have been used to suggest that youth come to identify as TGD because of “social contagion,” with the underlying assumption that AFAB youth are uniquely vulnerable to this hypothesized phenomenon. Reported changes in the AMAB:AFAB ratio have been cited in recent legislative debates regarding the criminalization of gender-affirming medical care. Our objective was to examine the AMAB:AFAB ratio among United States TGD adolescents in a larger and more representative sample than past clinic-recruited samples.

Florida medical board to weigh blocking treatments for transgender youth
The Florida Board of Medicine is slated Friday to consider a proposal by Gov. Ron DeSantis’ administration to bar physicians from providing treatments such as hormone therapy and puberty-blocking medication to transgender youths.
The state Department of Health last week filed a petition asking the board, which regulates medical doctors, to start a rule-making process on the contentious issue. The move came as the state Agency for Health Care Administration also plans to prevent the Medicaid program from covering such treatments for gender dysphoria.
The petition, which is on the agenda for a Board of Medicine meeting in Broward County, proposes what is known as a “standard of care” that would prohibit patients under age 18 from receiving sex-reassignment surgery and puberty-blocking, hormone and hormone “antagonist” treatments. It also would require that older patients sign a consent form and then wait 24 hours before starting such treatments.
