A clinical course offered at Harvard Medical School studies the sexual identities of infants, according to a course description posted on the university’s website and first discovered by the College Fix.
The course description for “Caring for Patients with Diverse Sexual Orientations, Gender Identities, and Sex Development” states that students’ “clinical exposure and education will focus on serving gender and sexual minority people across the lifespan, from infants to older adults.”
“Many of these patients identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex or asexual (LGBTQIA+)” it also notes.
The course instructor, Alex Keuroghlian (who identifies as “non-binary”), openly advocates for the permanent alteration of the bodies of gender-confused children. He has published multiple opinion pieces calling for a ban on alternative solutions for dealing with gender confusion.
He also serves as the director of the National LGBT Health Education Center at The Fenway Institute and previously was the director of the Massachusetts General Hospital Psychiatry Gender Identity Program.
Boston Children’s hospital, which was exposed last year for offering transgender surgery to minors, is listed as a partner for the program that oversees the course. The hospital proudly declares itself “the first pediatric and adolescent transgender health program in the United States.”
Neither the instructor nor university representatives replied to Young America’s Foundation’s request for comment.
It’s frightening to see one of the most highly-acclaimed medical schools in the world imply that infants can be members of the “LGBTQIA+ community”.
