Kids are being ‘brainwashed’ by TikTok video on ‘cool’ trans surgery

Campaigners have accused TikTok of helping ‘brainwash’ children by hosting viral social-media videos that promote changing sex as ‘cool’.

Content posted by transgender influencers on the social networking service – in which they recommend changing and accessing hormone therapy – has been viewed by millions of young viewers.

Some parents are concerned about the involvement of TikTok, which became the UK’s most downloaded app last year, as a ‘social transition’ of pressure on influential youth and fueling a rise in teens identifying as trans. is giving.

According to TikTok’s own data, more than a quarter of British TikTok users are aged 15 to 25, and children between the ages of four and 15 who sign up spend an average of 69 minutes a day on the app.

An analysis by The Mail on Sunday showed that the video with the hashtag #Trans has garnered over 26 billion views.

According to TikTok’s own data, more than a quarter of British TikTok users are aged 15 to 25, and children between the ages of four and 15 who sign up spend an average of 69 minutes on the app each day.

To promote this content, TikTok signed a partnership with controversial gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender rights charity Stonewall earlier this year.

A popular transgender TikTok influencer, Bella Fitzpatrick, raised £20,000 from followers in less than three months to fund private gender-reassignment surgery.

The 19-year-old has 700,000 followers and explains the transition process, including his experience bypassing NHS waiting lists.

Another is 18-year-old Alex Kosani, who has over 680,000 followers. She went viral five years ago when, at the age of 12, Cosmopolitan magazine featured her life as a trans model.

One of her videos, which has been viewed 2.3 million times, tells followers that they are ‘an estrogen pill a glow away’. A ‘glow up’ is a mental, physical and emotional change for the better.

One video has the caption ‘Get well with me after top surgery!’ – Reference to a reconstructive chest operation.

Another video begins with the words ‘I used to be a good Christian kid’, before showing the transformation into a ‘trans, gay atheist who loves tattoos and anarchy’.

Last night, Kate Harris of the LGB Alliance, which opposes Stonewall’s policies on transgender issues, said: ‘Our major concern is the millions of impressionable children seeing these influencers online.

‘It is no coincidence that the growth of TikTok coincides with the exponential growth of children with gender dysphoria.’

Ms Harris described some of the videos as ‘deeply appalling’, and added: ‘The message is often, “Don’t get your parents involved.”

‘This video will make a generation of kids believe that sex change is easy and it is the answer to all your problems.’

Stephanie Arai-Davis from Transgender Trends, which wants more evidence-based health care for children with gender dysphoria, said: ‘It’s hugely impressive and it’s full of videos that portray the medical transition as calm and fast. We do. Ling is seen as the new rebellion.

‘These social media platforms promoting medical infections should be made to include warnings on such content.’

A TikTok spokesperson said: ‘We are honored that the LGBTQ+ community has embraced TikTok as a platform for self-expression, education, community-building and enjoyment since our early days.

A Stonewall spokesperson said: ‘Our content allows young LGBTQ+ people to know that they are not alone in their experiences.’
