Critics of the service celebrated, its supporters were left in despair. In this series journalist Polly Curtis has spent months trying to understand what happened at GIDS. Why has it attracted such criticism and what is the best way going forward of treating young people with gender dysphoria?

Ten minutes later, and now the reporter is buying in to sex being 'assigned at birth' and 'misgendering' being on a par with GBH. No critique, pure blind obedience to the ideology. That's it, I'm done.

Less than halfway in to the first episode, and they are already falling into the ideology's most obvious trap, that of equating transgenderism with homosexuality. Very disappointing. I expected better of Tortoise, particularly when they've made such a big deal of this series supposedly being balanced, and allowing the listeners to make their own minds up. Don't know if I can be bothered listening further now, to be honest.
