People who are transgender identify as a gender different from the sex assigned at birth. The ACOG Committee on Adolescent Health Care says it’s unknown how many people around the world are transgender. “We’ve been seeing a lot of these kids,” Gomez-Lobo told Reuters Health. additional hints“We felt it was very important for general obstetrician-gynecologists to know about (them).” While ACOG recommends that doctors understand gender identity and be able to treat or refer patients to appropriate care, the statement acknowledges there are still large gaps in doctors’ training, knowledge and comfort in this area. The committee points out that young males who are transgender (female to male) still have a uterus, ovaries and breast tissues. They may experience medical complications specific to those organs and may also become pregnant. Doctors need to know about the hormones used to treat transgender patients, in order to have discussions about preserving fertility and what changes may be permanent. The committee says it’s also important for doctors to understand the social and mental health needs of transgender teens. This group of kids reports the highest rates of sexual harassment; many drop out of school due to bullying. Among the ways doctors can create a welcoming environment for transgender adolescents are to use gender-neutral terms on forms, train staff members and make brochures on sexual minorities available, according to ACOG. “The essential components of our role as health care providers do not change because an adolescent patient is transgender,” Gomez-Lobo said in a press release.

Speaking ape. Caesar talks. ContinuedSo thats a big thing. Hes a total different speed compared to the others. Which makes him unique and different. Theyre very stoic and heavy. In the footage we saw, Bad Ape was revealed to have been living alone in an abandoned facility. He seems thrilled to meet Caesar and his friends, and is eager to share his things and his food but more reluctant to give them what they really want, which is help finding a human military camp in the area. Still, he ends up contributing in more ways than one. As Zahn told me: He becomes a valuable asset in that he knows the lay of the land, so hes kind of a scout.
