The Navy is hiding children's medical records (trans, STDs) from parents

For everyone who has been arguing that the American military isn’t going woke (leading to a dearth in recruiting), you might want to look at this story. Over the weekend, a video popped up on Twitter showing a Navy Nurse Practitioner in Bahrain giving a presentation to military parents regarding pediatric healthcare policies. The audience was clearly shocked to learn that military parents of children aged 12 or older could not access their children’s medical records online. And children as young as 15 or 16 can make medical appointments for specific issues without parental notification. Those “issues” are, of course, gender identity, pregnancy, STDs, and mental health. One of the fathers in the crowd was clearly incredulous. (Postmillennial)

On Friday, a video was posted to Twitter in which a Navy Nurse Practitioner addressed Navy personnel in Bahrain about medical policy regarding their children when a concerned father spoke up.

The Navy spokesperson explained the Navy medical policy regarding children and said, “This generation is definitely more open with experiencing and experimenting and so I ask those tough questions. Do you identify as a male, female, non-binary? If you have a crush on someone is it a male or a female? Do you have a significant other and yes, I’m asking them if they are having sex.”

You really need to watch the video to get the full impact of the cavalier attitude adopted by this Nurse Practitioner as she explains this policy as if it’s the most normal thing in the world.

I haven’t been able to locate an official delineation of this policy on any military websites and when the speaker was asked how long this policy has been in effect she said that she didn’t know. Perhaps we should take this with a grain of salt for now and consider the possibility that this is just one woke medical provider stationed overseas and freelancing with the military’s policies.

But given the current atmosphere at the Pentagon operating under the Biden administration’s policies, is it really all that unlikely? I would argue that it’s not. The American military is currently pushing all sorts of new training on diversity, transgender identity, critical race theory, and all manner of other things that have nothing to do with warfare or defending the nation.

Let’s stop and consider the effect of this policy, though. At the age of 12 (when nearly all children have gone through puberty), parents can no longer access their children’s medical records online. Does that mean that they can’t physically go into the office and demand to see the records? We’re not being told, but that is a very crucial time in any child’s development when their bodies are changing and many questions can arise.

Then, when the child is still as young as 15, they are allowed to make decisions regarding not only gender identity but sexually transmitted diseases and pregnancy and hide those aspects of life from their parents. How did anyone look at this proposal and somehow decide that it was “normal?” And let’s not forget that they are including mental health in this grab bag. The speaker specifically said that she’s asking the children if they have contemplated committing suicide. If your child is literally considering taking their own life, isn’t that something you would want to know about immediately?

This is insanity, plain and simple. And now it has spread to the American military if this Nurse Practitioner is to be believed. We need to find a way to slam the brakes on this, but I don’t see how that can be achieved without a new president who will replace the military’s leadership at the highest levels and ensure that changes are promulgated downward through the ranks.
