DoH Report on Underage Transsexuals Makes no Mention of the Child Molesters who Victimize Them

by Andrew Walden

The State of Hawaii Department of Health just released a 2018 “Gender and Sexual Minority Health Report” with a “Focus on Transgender Youth.”

The report is chock full of the usual gender studies tropes but more notable is what is missing.

The term “hate crime” comes up six times in the report but the phrase “child molestation” never appears.  The report describes underage transsexuals engaged in “survival sex work” (p16).   Ignored is the fact that every single one of their adult clients is a child molester.  The report makes no effort to work with the trans-formed victims in order to identify the child molesters and bring them to justice.

Perhaps without realizing it, the report authors do admit that underage transsexuals are victimized—even driven to suicide—by adult homosexual child molesters, including members of the HSTA.  Maybe the DoH authors would be less confused if they stopped trying to see child molesters as “romantic partners”:

“SM & TG/GNC youth are at increased risk for bullying, including cyberbullying, teasing, harassment, and physical and sexual assault. They report higher rates of dating violence, including physical abuse by dating partners and sexual coercion. TG youth, in particular, experience high rates of violence and adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) such as bullying, neglect, physical and emotional abuse, isolation, physical and sexual assault, and teen dating violence. Twelve percent of TG youth report being sexually assaulted in K-12 settings by peers or educational staff, and 50% report being raped or assaulted by a romantic partner. Without intervention, over 75% of TG youth who experience physical or sexual violence at school attempt suicide.” –pg 30   

Here is what else they left out:

“The data presented in this report is not comprehensive. Notably, while factors such as incarceration; sex work; access to other health services such as mental health, vision, and substance use treatment; number of family members who identity as a gender minority; employment; effects of black market silicone, international surgery, and early hormone replacement therapy; unsheltered homeless locations; types of sexual practices; graduation rates; and types of adult supports available to youth are interesting and essential to a comprehensive understanding of public health issues faced by Hawai'i’s gender minority communities, questions about these risk factors have either not been included in the YRBS, or the current question wording limits the amount of information collected. Other data sources containing information on the health of SM & TG/ GNC people in Hawai'i may exist. More effort and collaboration are needed to identify and evaluate the representativeness of those data sources.” – pg 23
